I don't know why I'm worried about it.  If I would have thought about it,... the ruined items, I made "test pieces" for.  I only tested a few of them, and they sure look better than the ones I ruined, so I finished the test pieces last night.  I have enough to send,... but I am just annoyed that a few things I worked on this week just don't impress me as much as all the stuff I worked on before.  You know when you brainstorm and make a huge list, knowing that you aren't going to make half of the 25 items you jot down?  Well, I tend to sit down and make parts of half of them, and then there's nothing left to do but finish, and scrap about half of the things that aren't coming out quite as expected.  When I'd really like to be packing today.  I guess I can give my things that need to dry a bit more time.

Hope you all have a brainstorm of inspiration coming your way!

oh DEAR!  I just realized I had the dates wrong in my head *pout*.  I will be having to send late it seems.  I got it in my head that mailing date was the 14th not the 4th!  We are signing for our new house today, and get the keys tomorrow, so I have been a bit distracted.  I will have time today to finish up, but I will want give the glaze a day or 2 to dry completely.  So I should be able to post on Monday.  This will be the first time I've ever mailed out late!

Drying, ugh!  That has definitely slowed me down a bit.

But, I really actually think that I am done....  Yes, this late, but I'm even done to the point of halfway packed.  I am so shocked and quite happy with myself for this.  I had lots of silly little things to do, that could mess up everything if not done properly.  I learned my lesson yesterday.  Anyhoo, just checking in to say I wont be sending off that 'I will be late' PM now.

I've only been late one time before, Sue.  It was a year ago and I really just think I crafted too much nonsense.  (meaning,... I just crafted too much)  Which I often do, but thank goodness this time I balanced things out at nick of time.

I also found that my package is made up of smaller things, rather than a great big thing. it's mainly because i'm such a newbie, though. i have much respect for the serious poly clayers out there. As a medium, it requires an exactness that ceramics does not. I found that the things that i thought would be the easiest were not at all! I definitely learned a lot in the doing, though. I hope my partner likes what I was able to come up with.

You know, I thought for sure I posted here earlier saying I wouldn't be able to send today because of work. I can't seem to find my post. I even checked to make sure I didn't accidentally post it on my other swap... but yeah. I'll be shipping tomorrow morning. After seeing the gallery I might try to add some last minute pieces. Curse you talented people... Tongue
