Oh my those buckeyes look yummy. When I was in the Navy I was amazed to find out how many of my co workers didn't know about buckeyes (we had A LOT of Ohioans on post too go figure). It completely mystified them that the buckeyes didn't contain actual buckeyes. When I went home for a weekend I went down the road picked some of the real buckeyes then went to Goomis candy and bought almost 2 pounds of candy buckeyes. After that no more confusion Smiley

I'm finished with the required amount for the swap but have some other ideas I may try out since we still have a week to craft.

Ahhh school, I hate you! I've pulled 2 all-nighters in the last week, and been up till 5 about the rest of the nights. But I still got some crafting done Smiley

I honestly didn't expect my schoolwork to be this intense, so I've had to cut out one of the crafts I was planning (but I was going to over-craft so it's ok in the end). But I'm really pleased with how the rest of them are going and can't wait to see them done shortly. This week is guaranteed to be less busy than last week so I'm definitely going to be sending on time.

That "gnome" house is awesome!!! Underground/inground housing is actually fairly common, but that's a very beautiful example. I've read stories of taxmen completely missing the house and zoning a property way cheaper than it should be. My retirement plans involve me building and living in a house like that in 5 years. I'll be sure to post pics when I'm settled Wink

Happy Easter everyone!  Grin

Just thought I'd post a progress report.~~ I've finished the things I was making. <3's~ X3 Mom is about 60% done with her medium and 0% on the small. Today is our all day crafting day though. ^o^/ Which means I should leave in just a minute and get back to crafting. lol <3's~ Hope everyone has a good day. <3's~

here in ontario? if so, wanna get married? i'm a really good cook  Wink

Sounds good, though I should warn you that I'm 20 years old (yes, I'll be retired at 25, thank you very much). As for cooking - I'm learning how to make French cuisine lately, SO GOOD om nom nom.

Oh they look like what we would call conkers but we don't have a candy version.  And yes we love peanut butter Wink
I WANT that house btw, now I just have to persuade him indoors that we NEED it at the bottom of our garden.  He keeps talking about building a cabin down there for all my craft stuff (charming I get kicked out of the house with it) but if it was a house like that I'd never come out of it Grin

I'm almost done, I just have to glue one thing, and package it all up.  I think I'll send on Saturday, if not earlier.   Grin  I can't wait.

Good luck, MonkeyThumb!  I'm not good with computer stuff, either.  I'm technologically challenged.   Grin  Luckily, my dad is a computer programmer, so it doesn't matter that I'm bad with electronic stuff.   Cheesy
