Ive opted for wrapping all the presents in fabric.  I figure why use paper when I can use fabric.  And since my partner sews she can put all the fabric in her stash and use for her sewing projects later.   Grin  Now.....i'm off to finish the wrapping process.

Day 2 is going to be done tonight.  I wanted to finish last night, but things come up sometimes.    Undecided

Then all I have left is Day 12, Day 11, 1 ex small for Day 10, 4 smalls for Day 8, and 2 larges for Day 3.

Wow, that sounds like so much more than it does when I have what I have completed next to it.  I can do it though.  Cheesy

A wrapping plan huh?  I actually DO have one of those.  I'm wrapping each day in a different color of tissue paper, and making a small chart so pinkleo knows what color to open on what day.  It's actually an entire column in my spreadsheet, because yes, I'm insane enough to pick wrapping colors based on my themes for each day... 

I admit, I am not normal.

Yeah, I hit panic mode awhile ago. I'm getting worried I won't be able to accomplish everything in time. It doesn't help that lately I've been exhausted all the time, which kind of saps my desire to do anything. But I finished 4 smalls today, so that's something.

yea i have been procrastinating on one of my items for Day 5, and i feel totally guilty about it...i have been accomplishing things, but as is the nature of an artist, i cant work on something that i am not into without taking about a million breaks

i hope to finish it before this Sunday though, thats my personal deadline

Day 2 and I are still bickering.  I am almost done with it.  I ran out of ______ while making it and have to finish that part later.  But so close. It is not something I would normally make, and we argued a bit, but very glad that I did.  I love that part about swaps.  You make new things that you may never had tried before Cheesy

I cannot wait to tuck this one into the swap box.

Okay, I am offically done now.  I will say that I love that I used fabric to wrap stuff because then my partner can use the fabric on her future sewing projects.  But, it does have a kinda funny appearance though.  You know since I couldnt really tape the fabric and give it the clean cut wrapped looked you get from wrapping with paper.  But, still the fabrics re-useable and thats the great part.  Im a little nervous though.  Im thinking "oh, did I do enough?  Are those items to small?  Will she like this?"  But, its just swap anixeity.   Grin  Ive got a paper with a number attached to each present that way my partner knows the order to open them.  Day 12 being the first present she should open and day 1 will be the last present she opens.  Now, as for mailing, I need to wait until payday.   Grin
