I received from olliorange today!

Not a great picture I'm afraid.  A cute knitting pendant in my favourite colour.

Another dodgy picture (sorry!).  A hair bobble making kit.

Thank you ollieorange!!

"Hair Bobbles?" I've never heard that term. I think it's funny.

Where is everyone? We still have 5 people who haven't been claimed this month and we only have 2 days (including today!) left. What is going on? Is April everyone's super busy month or what?

Thanks, Rlynn, pass me a dying swap Wink

I have 2 outstanding claims that I am going to get out as soon as May comes along, the budget rolls over, and I can justify going to Hobby Lobby again. Until, then, though I've been working on a cross stitch that has been "In progress" for the past 7 years. I am so close to being done, but I can't find a certain kind of floss. One color left but it is nowhere to be found! Frustrating!

I am wanting to make another claim, for someone who hasnt yet been claimed. But.. to give myself enough time I wont be doing it until the last day of the month. Especially because May is going to be a crazy month for me. Next weekend, I have my Mom's birthday, and we are meeting her and my dad for a weekend at the coast. The following weekend my Dad is having major surgery, so I will be out of town to support him through that. And, as soon as I get back home from his surgery, my little dog has to have surgery again. With all that crazy, I dont want to over-commit and under deliver, but Im planning on making at least one more claim for the month!

I think you are looking at people who haven't been claimed by others yet.  There are only two folks who haven't made a claim, Mrs Shak and myself.  I normally wait until the very last day so I can claim up the people who have yet to be claimed...currently we have five of those.  So for those of you thinking of making a last minute claim it would be awesome if you could claim someone who hasn't been claimed at all.  Everybody should walk out of this swap with at least one package.

Nevermind, I should read more carefully.  Well we are down to only 3 people who haven't been claimed and I still have to claim so I will be claiming them if nobody else does...if one of them gets claimed then I'll shift my claim over to someone who has uneven claims.  

And just so everyone knows what is going on...  Jexxican is taking over the Pinterest Swap.  She'll be opening up the May round I am sure in a few days.  I am sad to let it go but I am just a little swamped over here in my real life and have not been able to provide as much attention to the swap as I would like.  Thanks to everyone for making this such a fun swap to organize.

I'm just being lazy.  Roll Eyes I'm off to find someone to claim right now...

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

I also posted a warning from another Craftster member regarding pinterest on there.....Beware of viruses.

Alright.  I've closed this round.  Thank you to everyone for making this swap such a blast.  I am passing the reins to jexxican.  *sniff, sniff*  I am sad to let it go but I seriously need to focus on my schoolwork for a bit.  I am sure I'll see everyone around the board. 

The winner of this month's random draw is KodaNRoxyDogs!  Congrats!
