And we're still making new friends! Welcome everyone!

Now I'm thinking even stronger about joining this month, reading through all your bios. There are actually things I like to make stated on your bios! Maybe I'll be a late joiner this round. Never can pass up carving stamps (even though I don't stamp much myself) and hoops are sometimes good to get me out of crafty slumps, too. Alas, right now I must away and craft for Christmas some more. But like I said, maybe I'll join you all after the big holiday?

Oh, I caved and joined too!  Jexxi, your stamps are one of the reasons I joined craftster....they were pinned on someone's boards....I would never turn one down!  Plus, I love seeing what people come up with!  I think I will have to find some simple things....maybe someone has something that I'm already going to have to do.....hmmm.....

I was sitting here being very sad about the happenings in the world today and came to craftster to make my head stop aching. I realized that I had not posted anything in the Dec Pinterest board. I keep adding stuff to the November but I guess I got confused. I am just finishing up with dance recital costumes and the final preparations are finished for 1st grade holiday party. So now to finish up some Christmas presents and claim some Pinterest folks. I promise I have not forgot you and have even started the preparations for your items. I just want to have as much time as possible. So I will be claiming on Tuesday and I haven't been flaking just super busy!!! Prayers to all affected by the shootings today!!!

I used Craftster as a haven yesterday as well.  I spent so much time crying yesterday, and I don't even personally know anyone affected by this horror.  I can't even imagine how it must be to wake up this morning and have to realize all over again that your child was brutally taken from you.  It just makes me hurt, but it certainly makes me appreciate my family that much more.  To all those affected, my thoughts and prayers are with you, my heart is broken for you.  And I'm grateful for this Craftster community that allows us to connect and support each other.

I hugged as many of my kiddos as I could when they got to our center yesterday!   I was just aching inside thinking about how this could've been any of them....

I am horrified beyond words about what occurred last week in CT..... Check out www.facebook.com/26acts...

I am thinking I shouldn't have joined this swap this month.  I thought I was all good to go with all the holiday stuff but alas I was not...not to mention my daughters birthday is tomorrow and the party is Saturday...I am hoping to find some time to sit at the sewing machine early Saturday morning so I can get the package out that day.

Dessadoll sure has been pumping out some really nice stitchery for this swap lately. We are lucky to have her Wink

Also: make sure to message me when you receive! Posting in here is not enough. While I do technically see everything in here, it doesn't always register that I need to make changes in the claims board if I don't get a PM.

Another also: it has come to my attention that some people are being claimed a lot while others are not being claimed it all. Someone has suggested that we put a cap on how many times one person can be claimed while other people aren't claimed at all but I really don't like that idea as it sounds like way too much work for me. Here's what I suggest: when you're looking for someone to claim, start with those who haven't been claimed yet. If you're not getting claimed then, like it says in the sign up thread, check your Pinterest. Are there enough items that can be crafted? Are there enough different mediums? Are your boards organized in a manner that is conducive to inspiring people to craft off of them?

Comments? Concerns? Talk to me, ladies.

Thanks again for the compliment jexxican!!

As for claiming, I feel royally spoiled!  I have someone I want to claim that hasn't been claimed but I had to wait for the bloody postal service to get a package delivered before I could claim.  There are some individuals that have boards that are nearly impossible to claim from.  Either very brand specific, or very few items to pick from, this makes it extremely hard to claim them.  I wish it wasn't that way, I would try and claim something for everyone.  Not sure if that helped or not, but that's my reasoning.  Can we increase the numbers of packages we can send out once we send you confirmation of mailing?  Like email you a receipt then claim again?
