Spent all day woot-ing.  They had a singer 120 stitch machine for $149.  I almost bought it.  Gah!

Now I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need an all-in-one printer/fax/scanner/copier for my craft room.  It's only $150.   Refurbished but still.  It would be handy for this swap, but I'd never get it in time.  GAH!  Gave in.  Bought one.  Now to hide it from hubby when it gets here.  Luckily he's afraid to venture into my crafting domain.

woot.com will be the death of me today.

I'm going to suck it up and try to get some of my sewing done tonight.  That will also be the death of me.

I love woot.com I also like http://www.shnoop.com/.

On a crafting note- I just have to wrap the gifts, pack them (waiting on boxes) and get it out! Yippee! It feels good to be done with all the projects!

Oh hell.

Wrapping.

I hate wrapping items. Not the act of wrapping. I hate the purchase of and subsequent waste of paper. I was planning on placing small items inside the medium sized items as well, to save on package volume, but that won't work if I wrap.

And do you think I'd still be able to vacuum shrink wrapped items?

Is a good idea.... but I was planning on bunging all the soft items together and shrinking the lot as one - I have me a spare one of those vacuum bags.

I love woot.com I also like http://www.shnoop.com/.

I had never heard of either of these websites before, but just checked them out...very interesting.

I finished 4 smalls and a large tonight.  Only six items left- 1 small, 2 mediums and 3 larges. Woohoo!  Almost done!

Going to get started on one of the days. I am usually not up this early 6:33 AM, I am more of a 9-10 AM person but couldn't sleep, so I guess I am going to start a day and finish by 8 AM. I was forced to make some last minute changes, but I love the new ideas way better. I still have to make a list for what last minute supplies I need to get.

I am waiting to wrap all of the items at once, I am going to have my sister help. She loves wrapping gifts.

On a side note: anyone waking up to freezing weather? It is sooooooo cold in upstate NY..... Undecided

My sewing machine is broke, as I wasnt able to fix it.  Sooooo.....that it going to slow down my progress because Im not good at hand sewing stuff.  Today is a "what am I going to make instead of my planned items, since my sewing machine is broke day".  Eeeep!

OMG yes!  23 degrees here right now.  And I don't have a winter coat right now.  Brrrrr!

In crafting news, I have a small thing to buy and one small thing to make (that will be done tonight) and I'll technically be able to send days 12-7.  How insane is that?  Course I've got about 10 side items I want to see if I can complete as well, but since they're extras, I'm not stressing.  And since my little brother's girlfriend has volunteered to watch my daughter on Sunday, I can spend all day sewing, and hopefully knock out at least one day out of Day 3 or Day 4.  Wish me luck!  I'm feeling ahead of the game for once!
