I'm either almost done or actually done! I've been debating a final detail for a day and a half, but I'm going to try to send tomorrow either way.  Because obsessing over crafts for too long is bad, right? Wink

Yes my husband has kind of looked at me like "what is that" on a couple things I've gotten, but I always appreciate the effort & thought that goes into it.  I'm guilty of sometimes using swaps to try new techniques, but I always try to send something where I knew what I was doing too.  Wink


  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

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.

{steps down off soapbox}

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

Ooh yay I'm so excited!

I just finished a large at work and now have about a million requests for the same!! lol I hope you like it donniesgirl, cause I'm having to pry it out of hands here! Even one of the actresses (I work in theatre) is begging for one!

I feel a bit accomplished!

I am on cloud nine with this swap right now! I was rummaging through a box of stuff that the costume shop where i work was getting rid of and found the most perfect authentic 40's vintage ____________. Snatched the sh*t up for donniesgirl in a hot second! This swap is really a boon for me!! whoo hoo!!

SENT! and it's a good thing.  Rainy rainy days and leaky leaky roofs are leading to quite a bit of chaos in my old apartment.  I needed to get that package out before it needed it's own raft!!
