I have some leftover _____, so I might see if I can whip up something from that to throw in.

Tease  Cheesy

Anyways, I found my cat, and school is out for the summer so I'm focusing a lot of my time crafting. Smiley

I came up with another great idea the other day while I was browsing at Jo-Ann's (always dangerous) so I'm really excited to get started on that as well.

Happy crafting!

hee hee

So glad you found your cat! And hurray for summer vacation!

This is my first swap and I am working diligently on my project.... but I have a question.... does anyone else worry that their partner is not going to like what you made?  How can you be sure without giving away what you are doing?  What if they think your crafting abilities are sub-par..... I am sure I am just worrying for nothing (that is what I do) but I thought I would put it out there!

Thanks

 Grin send today!!!
I'll lean back now, enjoy the great weather here at the moment and wait for my partner to receive. Hopefully travelling across the Atlantic ocean won't take too long.
And I'm all exited now to see what she's made.

I think people who sign up for swaps realize that they could get pretty much anything & that that's part of the fun of it.  Even when you ask questions, you never really know what you're going to get.   Cheesy

Y'know, sometimes I've received things that were not done quite the way I would have done it, but it's ok. Even if an item is not quite what I expected, I still enjoy the thought of someone else taking their time and energy to craft something for me. A lot of people use swaps to try out new techniques or crafts and it's fun being a part of that whole learning experience. I doubt there are many people who receive something and huck it against the wall in disgust. Like someone else said, the surprise of the swap is fun and that's what we all signed up for! All that to say, I'm sure your partner is going to appreciate and enjoy whatever it is you've made!!  Cheesy Everything has merit.

I sent my package to kittymoose today! I hope you have a blast with it! It was all so much fun to do. Oh, and do let me know if anything gets... damaged.  Wink I'll replace it free of charge. lol
