Yes, I could send you a glue gun from across the ocean and it would still be cheaper lol!





I think you made the right descision, for $40 the glue gun better do the glueing for me.


You ladies are awesome! As is getting a moped, lanikins!

I didn't finish lanikins poppet yesterday like I was hoping to, his haircut took a lot longer than I had expected, so hopefully I can finish him today- I just have to finish sewing one of his shirts and add snaps to everything else.

OH! And today when I went to get lanikins some obligatory cheesy Canadian things (like maple syrup candies, a stuffed moose that said "Canada" on its belly and things of that nature) I found THE MOST PERFECT THING for her. Seriously, it was just sitting right up the til and all of that cheesy stuff was instantly forgotten- it was like it was fate. Wink

Soooooooooooo close! Just one more snap, 2 little hems, eyelashes and *maybe* another row of hair (I don't want him to look like he has a receding hairline Wink )- *Fingers crossed I can get it mailed out tomorrow or Tuesday*

EDIT: I lied! I just remembered a little accessory I have to make. And now to figure out how to do so... Wink

Anyways, onto the official stuff...

Tomorrow marks ONE WEEK til send-outs! If you think that you will be sending late/ need additional time PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP!

and an update:
- poppet sewn, head done, need to sculpt body. hair picked out, outfit material laid out.
- cupcake cut, sewn, ready to stuff. outfit material options laid out.
- accessories picked out, need to make.
- extras bought.

GAH! I bumped the send-out day back a day from the 31st to the 1st since I thought that the 1st was a Monday. But nope, still one day short... (This is what happens when you assign dates without actually looking at a calendar Wink ).

So yes, SEND-OUTS ARE NOW MONDAY JULY 2ND, 2012 (thanks to puamelia for pointing it out to me)!

Do you know how much longer it will take to get to you? A couple of days after send-outs? Or a couple of weeks?

EDIT: Finished lanikins poppet! And now to find a box for him. Half of the time I think that the hardest part of these swaps is finding a proper box... Wink

It looks like it may not come at all.  I'm just going to have to improvise!

Yay! Thanks Avery, looks like I'm going to make it on time!

OHH warpedhooker, sorry to hear that. I changed vendors for eyes because I was worried about timing. But you know what happens with these poppets... improvisation seems to bring out the best in them!

Speaking of which, that epic fail I had has been worked out. Onward!

Ahehehe! Most times I craft for the flat rate box. This time, I might have the same problem as you...
