I have lots of time to craft as of right now, just not a lot of money to spend doing it, or mailing things, so I'm out of swaps for awhile until I get my financial situation turned around. Here's my To-Do list!

1. Crochet Cheeseburger
2. Unusual Cross-Stitch
3. Monster Book of Monsters
4. Amigurumi Dragon
5. Crochet Baby Afghan
6. Carousel Cross-Stitch [WIP]
7. Another Amigurumi Dragon for Katie (orange)
8. Another Amigurumi Dragon for Lindsay (pink)
9. Slippers
10. Scrapbook/Cookbook [WIP]
11. Amigurumi Gnome
12. Another Amigurumi Dragon (sigh) for Josh (blue)
13. Secret book hiding place because I've always wanted one but never really know what to do with them, lol...Tutorial
14. Frog cross stitch
15. Dragonfly cross stitch
16. Gift & Card for Mom's Birthday
17. Homemade bookbinding project
18. Linguine Dolls: pattern
19. Felt Robot
20. Froggy bank
21. Caterpillar door decorator
22. Gun embroidery
23. Rainbow wedding dragon

Probably a lot of my projects will be amigurumi and other crocheted things. I'm new to it but I love it!

nofury, I loooove the Caliometry.  When I worked teaching environmental ed in the cold and rainy Pacific Northwest winter, my "uniform" always included one of those.  When the other girls saw them, we were all knitting them just as busy as bees!  The leaf buttons are super cute, too!

Thanks! I'm trying to make more for myself, and the calorimetry is PERFECT because I hate wearing my hair down. I bought those buttons ages ago for absolutely no reason other than I loved them. I love how it all came together. I was trying to figure out some way to incorporate the buttons onto the gloves, but with the textured cuff, it just didn't happen. I'm ok with that!

I didn't want to join in last year because I thought I would put too much pressure on myself trying to get to 50. This year I knew it was possible--and I got there with 3 months to spare!

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule, swapping once in a while when I can't fight the feeling anymore ("I've forgotten what I started fighting fooooor...").
Personal swaps: I have lots of home-grown rosemary and white sage available, plus altered journals.
