I'm so tempted by this swap despite my resolution not to spend so much on swapping.

Quote from: sunspotted
I wonder if I'm the only person on craftster who has pictures of themselves lying on a polar bearskin rug?

No, you're not the only one!!!  I have pictures of myself on my parents polar bearskin rug - they've had it as long as I can remember.

I'm still debating on joining this swap - I have the swap space but not sure of the time - I'm working full time for 3 weeks of January and I'm worried I can't get a large item done in time and with the quality I want to do...thinking, thinking...

oops.  Somehow I never posted here and so haven't been seeing the ongoing conversations.

Yikes - I am the oldest geezer?  Is that like two negatives making a positive?  Probably not.  Sheesh, who knew I'd be the geezerest geezer.  I feel the need to put on some kind of crown and embrace it.  You know what they say - 40 is  the old age of youth - but 50 is the youth of old age.

We will be celebrating my birthday tonight (51) so I have out some of my favorite adult beverages all ready to go and am trying to figure out the optimum combintion.  Ketel One, Chambord, Amaretto, Irish Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Liquer (mmmm).  Also half and half and choco syrup in the fridge.  Any suggestions?

(After dinner at the Melting Pot on Tuesday (my actual b'day) I will be back to the whole weight watcher thing - so I'm gonna enjoy the adult beverages!)

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

happy birthday to a geezer that's older than me!!   Grin

seriously, happy birthday..... and, as my mom says...... getting older sucks..... but it still beats the alternative.

Happy Birthday, KarenLouise!  Chambord is my favorite!  Have you tried "Chocolate Covered Raspberries"?  It's easy!  Just Chambord and Creme de Cocoa.  Yummy!

oohhh, with the things you listed you need to try a Buttery Nipple (and don't blush when you order it either). Have it for dessert!
Cream, Kahlua, Frangelico, Buttescotch schnapps & one other...I forget what, served in a short glass on ice. It's decadent.

Happy birthday,Karenlouise! Have you ever poured Kaluaha over good vanilla ice cream? Mmmm...
Here's a birthday present for you-
I just went there this morning and bought watch gears and misc.stuff for funky jewlery and shrines,ect-talk about vintage epherma!Some kind soul at the steampunk swap-badluck,I think,suggested it.Now I'm 26 dollars poorer,and on a new mailing list. Grin
I love your purses.I have a big stack of old albums I painstakingly picked out one day last summer,with the full intention of making purses.Someday...
