I've decided what I'm going to make (that's a HUGE step for me!) and have gathered most of my supplies, so I feel like I'm doing really well.  Since I now have much less time to craft than I did at the beginning of this swap, my goal is to work on this whenever I possibly can...  It's bittersweet for me, as I think this will have to be my last swap for quite some time. Cry

Oooooooooh noooooooooo!  Did I do something?  Is that crazy job of yours giving you problems? Wink

I am on the fence in what to make.  I have a few ideas swirling and I just need to make a commitment....  Roll Eyes Wink

It's just that when I was out of work I signed up for school, thinking I needed to fill in that gap so I didn't have a big old hole on my resume when I "eventually" found a job.  (seems that "craftster swaps" might not look like a productive use of time in my professional world, if you can imagine that! Roll Eyes)  so then I naturally got a fantastic job, sort of like how adopting a baby can spontaneously make some ladies get pregnant. Wink  So now, until I finish school in June, I'm a full time student and doing a full time job (which was supposed to be part time!) and I know some people can pull it all off, but not me ha ha!  I have to cut back on something, so it looks like after this, I'm out of the swapping life until next summer!  Cry  But I'll still be lurking about Craftster for sure, and checking out all the new projects and such.  Just not doing any actual crafting.  How will I ever survive!? Huh

I understand and I feel for you.  I hope you can drop in now and again to visit with us.  Even if you do not swap, still craft here and there, that is the only way you will keep your sanity. Shocked Grin Wink  I am do grateful I had a chance to swap with you!

So I should take "organizing/participating in crafster swaps off my resume?"   Wink

No no...it is all in how you present it:

"Responsible for organizing disparate individuals into cohesive groups in order to harness their creativity and human capital for the benefit of the entire team."

Yes?   Cheesy

I am sending late.   Sad  This is the first time I've ever had to send late.  Normally I just hate my job.  This week I REALLY hate my job.   Angry

Why, oh why, can't I win the lottery and stay home and craft?
