Loving the felt pincushin, dessadoll! Wow Smiley  Very nice work~ Love the texture & detail.  The iPhone cozy is super cute, too... I made a day of the dead one for my friends' daughter recently... Don't you love how felt items turn out just how you want them to? haha  I have crocheted or potted too many things that leave me going "what the heck?? NOT what I wanted!"   Smiley  Your owl is super cute!

I'm just about done ALL of my current November claims and and *hoping* to send out everything on Monday...  Am hoping that tomorrow is a crafty day for me.  Making some deeeelicious ribs & najaorama's rosette apple pie (check it out in 'hot new projects - so beautiful) in the afternoon, so I should be in the house for the day.  Now to find another sendeee to claim...  Smiley

I just found out I'm going for a trip to Canada the 1st week of December, so I've been busy fixing stuff for that the past couple of days. I will finish my claims within the next few days and plan to send out by the send out date.

The owl is so adorably colorful and those Christmas tags and cards are pretty awesome.

Beautiful cards, and those tags looks like so much fun! But I must ask, Dessadoll, "teachers and strangers?" Do explain!

Apparently you guys are all too familiar with my giveaways. Why do I bother? No just kidding. Here's how I usually do them: at the end of the month (or rather the beginning of the next) I go down the claims list and count each person once and then each claim once. Then my magic RNG (ie my husband) calls out a number in that range and whoever that happens to be gets a prize! Yay prizes! Generally they are Pinterest Supplies surprises but sometimes I will actually make something. Examples: September's winner was AuntieKar and I went online and ordered some Sharpie glitter pens and had them sent right to her. Another winner a few months ago was Deathbeforedishes and I saw on her Pinterest for her girls that she wanted some rag letter and Hey! I've wanted some rag letters for my kids for a while too so I went on and made each of a set and sent one as her prize. Basically the prize just acts as another claim for me that I don't get credit for.

How many people didn't know about the giveaway?

You guys have been awesome in answering the call to help, though. Wow! Thanks for the support, y'all. I'm not going to use you all in the same month but be prepared if you're in future OPSs and you've already offered. I may very well call on you! (but feel free to decline, we have many lovely ladies eager to help).

Also, I know RLynn did a mid month giveaway sometimes and with our rising numbers of participants we may start doing those again, but definitely not until January as I have way too much on my plate to accomplish between now and then even without this swap.

So... there's my ramblin' schpele about the giveaways! Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Thanks again, yous guys. You all rock!

My pain pens are exceptional!  I have yet to break them out and try them...they're waiting for just the right project to come along.

Craziness and Craftiness are synonymous, right?!

Strangers you ask??  We make crafts to hand out to general strangers at Christmas.  Sometimes its handmade ornaments we give away to people we pass on the street.  This year we are going to pick a "group home" for adults that can't live on their own and make a craft for each of them.  We will pick a house December 1st. (there are at least 50 here, if not more.)  It helps with the "giving back" of the season.  As well this year, we are going to drop off items at our "Crisis Nursery" since the 2 kids we just adopted were in and out of foster care their entire lives, and spent time in a crisis centre....we thought it would be a great thing to start with them to give back to our centre here.

Now...about the exchange...I would gladly help with a giveaway if you need it.

And I have my package ready for bunny1kenobi....going out tomorrow!!  Now hoping a package gets received so I can send another!

What are you looking for in Toronto?  Especially supply-wise.  I can probably help you out if you point me in a specific direction as to what you are looking for, and if you can say where you will be staying.  

Also, if you have to ship to the US or Canada - it may be worthwhile for you to bring your items with you and ship out here.

I've nearly finished my claim! Just need to weave in ends and block. It should be dry tomorrow at the latest.
