It was such a stressful week at work and at home...I hope to find time to wrap sezouli's items this weekend...it will be fun and distracting!  I eat the wrapping paper I got for her items, and it will be fun to shop for a Xmas card to send with it too!  Cheesy

I was just wondering on the size of goodies everyone is making?  I don't think there was a requirement or anything, though I suppose I could have missed it, so I'm just curious cuz I haven't done this kind of swap before lol  Like are you all doing mostly smalls, some mediums, what?  lol

my partner and i agreed on the large/spoiler package so i can't speak for her... but i am making a mix.  some of my projects time wise are larges but finished craft size mediums. a fewsmalls. a few mediums. maybe large for her to open xmas morning (if i can find my time machine and get to it Smiley)

 and think the stocking part is going to be a super grande extra large.  (and cause me premature greyness and/or balding Wink) but if it works the way i envision it. will be worth it.  ok maybe not worth grey hair you cant get rid of that stuff.

There are swap size minimums in the original post princess. Check your partner's questionnaire for the size of stocking for the amount of crafting.

As for me, there's a couple of pieces that most people would call a medium/large, but I'm insanely fast at that particular medium so ....those pieces are not quite a medium for me. My partner and I are doing the medium stocking. So far, I've crafted the 2 "mediums", and about 4 smalls along with purchased goodies.

I'm starting the next item for ORB today. I've never made one of these before. I'm looking forward to the challenge. Cheesy

I'm sure everyone is going to vary - if you are talking about size (not time) I'm trying to keep most things on the manageble side for the sake of sending - although one of my items has gone over my intended size limit so I guess it makes no difference now - I'll need a box at least big enough for that! (I had the perfect box set aside but my dog decided to eat it the other day) Undecided  Last year it was easier for me to send in two boxes rather than one huge one - cheaper too!
  If you're talking about time/cost, I think everyone put that on their questionaire when it asked what size stocking you would prefer. Smiley
PS - despite having finished a while ago I continue to add here and there - out of control I am!!  I gotta get this thing outta here so I can start crafting the rest of my Christmas gifts! Cheesy

I've purchased the last of my supplies today!  Wooo hooo.   I'll probably finish all the crafts before I do the stocking, actually!
