Hi Everyone! Our cable modem died, then there was a service outtage, so I have been away for a couple of days. Then I come back to hear that some of my stuff was confiscated? What on earth? If it was the candy and incense, I guess I can understand it, but I didn't have anything else in there that was at all mysterious. I am just sick.


I'm glad it was just the non-crafted stuff, but honestly, what the heck? I've never heard of that happening, and that stuff is so benign. I'm so sorry.

Hello, swappers! Just a reminder that the gallery is up (I've put the link on the first page, second post, but here it is again):

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241265.msg2658267#msg2658267

Also, a friendly reminder not to leave "lurking" posts in the gallery (as per the Crafster mods' request). This clutters the server with unnecessary posts. Use the "bookmark" function to save pages you want to come back to - no need to go digging through the other galleries to find ours! Smiley

It's okay, AlternaWidget.... My family lives in another country and whenever we send stuff to each other it gets searched.  Once they searched a package of birthday presents and then lost it - it wasn't able to be replaced.   Cry

It kinda sucks but if you look on the bright side, at least it was the non-crafted stuff and still got sent on after. 

I have to finish all my projects at this point, but should be able to do it all mostly today.  I finally got moving on my large and I'm feeling good about it now, although before I was nervous about being able to pull it off.

Hi. No, it's worse than that. It appears my big project, the one I loved so much, is basically going to be trashed. I might as well post pictures in the gallery so you guys can see what's going in the rubbish. I'm in tears because I so wanted my partner to have this stuff, and to have it on time.
I am never swapping again (well, I say that now...) I am just so darned disappointed.

Oh no.....  did you find out from the customs office??  That's so horrible... did they give you a reason why??

I'm so sorry, that is just terrible.  I would feel like complete sh*t if one of my projects wasn't delivered.....

I think I'm almost done! I finished up a project this afternoon(aside from one little detail), and realized I had three things made. I started another project last weekend, but I'm not pleased with it, and I might make one other small thing in it's place instead.

I am officially finished! Yay! But, now, because I have a meeting after school and then I have to tutor, I don't think I'll make the PO. And, because I have 2 hours of tutoring on Tuesday, I won't make it then either. And, I don't know when I can go on Wednesday, either. Yikes! I think I'll have to try to go before my meeting...and be a few minutes late...hmmmm....

But, I love what I made! And, I hope my partner does too!

I have finished two smalls and a medium,  and I am nearly done with my large.  I will be sending on time.

Woo hoo! I am done. Now comes the part of the swap I dread... the post office! (ours is closed for remodel so the next closest one is doing double-duty. not a fun place.) But most likely I will make it there tomorrow. Just need to get a few pics in the daylight first.
