I'm back! Sorry I've been gone so long. Thank you to Smmarrt and llisaredd for being understanding.

I still have been crafting and am nearly finished! I like the booze theme the thread has taken! I think I might have to polish off that bottle of wine tonight......

Finished one piece (I think), but not exactly thrilled with it. Going to look again in the morning and see if I still dislike it. Then I need to set about making pieces 2 and 3.... And find something to ship them in without destroying anything...

I've got my box ready to go.  But, my husband told me I have to wait awhile before I can ship.  No shipping funds for me right now, he said.  Sad

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Woohoo - I got the last of my planned 4 crafted items done today, and everything is all packaged and ready to ship out.

A few teasers.....

All wrapped, addressed and ready to send out....



The inside box - a pretty box my mom gave me when she packaged some home made buns the last time we visited her...



... and inside that box....



I hope my partner likes what I made, and the extras I sent.  If the morning is not too hot and humd, I should ship tomorrow.  Otherwise I may do it after work sometime next week.  This was a fun swap to craft for.  Now I am off to make a copy of at least one of the crafts for just me Cheesy

I'm still unsure as to whether I like the one piece I've "finished". I'm ignoring it right now because it's making me sad. I am having lots of fun with another piece though. I'm not sure whether this is going to be the final piece or just a rough draft, I need to put all the components together and decide whether it looks refined enough. Regardless, I'm having fun playing with colour, and colour makes me happy. It's something new, and I'm really happy with how it's coming together (after a teensy bit of trial and definitely error with my supplies...)
My third piece is just sitting in a great big pile of supplies, adamantly refusing to create itself. Which I think is very rude of it. I know what I want it to be, I just can't quite get the image of how I want it to look to formulate in my mind. Which is frustrating because the last time I tried this technique the idea was boiling and bubbling away desperate to be made tangible.
There's a good chance I might get everything done tonight, I've been in one of those creative frenzies (I've also baked two loaves of zucchini bread because the garden is full of the buggers, and created a racing fish game with my bonkers five year old.)

Well, technically I'm at least at "3 points" but feeling like I need to add one...more...thing.  I'll have to check my stash when I get home tonight to see if I have what I need. (It will be amazing if I don't - I feel like my supplies are swallowing my room)
  In any event, should be sending (fingers crossed) by tomorrow or Saturday.  Smiley

Well, I may be the Lone Crafter in all of this, but I'm fairly certain I'm only making one thing.

But you guys are making me nervous with all the many stuffs you are making.  Cheesy

You could be making one teeny tiny altered matchbox and I would be happy as a... well, as me in glitter quite frankly. I've seen the things you've got on your pinterest that you've made and I'm utterly in awe and totally nervous about what I'm making!
