Oh I'm excited about this. I did it last year and it was such a nice surprise (and the only gift I got!) because I was out of the country for a little while. Woo!

Happy birthday Leigh-Ann!

Hi everyone, happy birthdays!! My birthday is tomorrow. I did this one year and it was so wonderful getting a crafted gift, so I'm contemplating breaking my one-swap rule and joining this one. Cheesy

Yay January Babies!

I just walked into my sewing room and sitting on the floor is a huge box, a brand new embroidery machine!!!!!

I am SO EXCITED!    My dad rocks!!!   And he totally fooled me, I got a few little things on my bday, tonight b/c my sister wasn't there for my actual birthday we had a 'birthday dinner' for me, which just meant I got to choose what we ate.  My dad said goodnight and happy birthday again, and went to bed.    I went to brush my teeth and passed by the room and there it was!!!!!   AHHHHH!!!!

BTW ... it's so fun to see the same people in the January swap again!  I'm busy checking out the lists and I'll probably be ready to obligate to a few somethings on Tuesday (when I finally have a day off!)  Can't wait to start making presents Cheesy

I've been reviewing the few lists that are on here, and sadly, I don't think I could make anything on them!  Sad  I will keep on looking, though.

I might not be able to craft for a few days, however.  While getting ready for work yesterday morning, I scratched the cornea of my left eye.  I went to both the hospital yesterday, and the eye dr. today.  The eye dr. said I could read, watch TV, etc...but the short time I've been on Craftster today has really irritated my eye.

So we'll see... or not, I guess!  Roll Eyes Tongue

Sorry to hear about your eye Miss Barbara ... I've done that before and it sucks!  And as far as our lists go ... I'm sure you could make us something we didn't even know we wanted and we'd we thrilled all the same.  I've gotten things in swaps that I would have never thought of before - that's the fun of swapping sometimes.

Welcome back, stellato_escuro ... I know you've done this one before!

I'm about to make my first claim.  Had to wait til the last minute, since my first few days of the "crafting time" will be eaten up spending time in Disney World ... drag, I know  Wink  Running the Disney Half and Full Marathon, so we decided to take my daughter and granddaughter along for a few days.  CAN'T WAIT!  Spent the last couple days making a Snow White and Prince Charming running costume for the marathon ... me and my man will be too cute  Cool ... so I can't start crafting for the birthday swap until I get back!  (Although I do plan on taking some crafty project on the plane).

I'll keep watching Craftster from my phone ... but it's a hard site to navigate on a 3 inch screen!

Thank you for the well wishes about my eye!

I reviewed the lists of the two people who have not been claimed yet, and I claimed stellato_escuro.  I did end up finding something I could make, perhaps my messed up eye had something to do with it??!! Roll Eyes

I can't wait to receive my birthday package, I'm saving it to open on my birthday...my 40th!

stellato_escuro...I'm almost done with the birthday claim for you.  Did you realize that the crochet basket is HUGE??  Shocked Wink I'm going to have to fold it to be able to ship it.  I just hope it retains it's shape once it gets to you.  It's so big I told my (smallish) 8yo DD that I was going to put her in it for a nap!

Well, stellara_escurto (sorry for the name misspelling) package went out this past week.  DH will give me the DC# when he goes back to work this week.  (He sends out my swap packages.)

Sorry I didn't keep on him about giving the receipt to me sooner.  As we speak, some sort of sawing is going on in my bathroom, which is being renovated.  My apartment is so small that yesterday, they had to unhook the toilet, and the only place to put it was behind the computer chair in the livingroom, so I couldn't post.   Lips sealed  I got DH's cold, and had the worst teaching day ever this past Thursday.

Please join me in hoping that this bathroom reno is done by my birthday on the 31st.   Cry

Finally got kaybeeeee's birthday goodies finished ... just need to wrap them up and find a box.  They'll be going out on the due date  Cheesy  Had quite the disaster making "something shiny to wear" the first time around.  Had to frog it and start fresh.  You know how things look so much better in your head?!  I didn't think Kat wanted to look like a space clown (OMG - I'll have to take a pic to show the ridiculousness of the first shirt!)  But attempt #2 worked out just fine (thank goodness, cuz I'm outta time!)  I'll let you know when it's actually in the mail  Cool

Then I'll be able to make some more claims  Grin

I have a couple of items finished for phnxreign99.  Been feeling under the weather the past couple of days, so I haven't done squat the last few days.  Luckily, I work best under pressure, and the hard part is pretty much done.  Smooth sailing from here on out.  Smiley

I received my birthday items from leighi123 today!  She sent me:

-A bold floral print cozy for my pint of ice cream, which I eat every night!   Wink  (This is really appreciated, b/c usually I just wrap a couple of paper towels around it, and that's just a waste of paper.)

-A fabric garbage bag for my car, made up of bold colors of polka dots!  (As soon as I get my car cleaned, It's going in there!)

-I did a last minute request for one of her fabric bowls in purple, and she delivered!  This is done in the same polka dot fabric as above, but with a purple top.  (I really do appreciate you sending me this item as well...my BFF's birthday is soon and her fav color is purple, so I will be gifting this to her...I hope that's allright with you!)

Thank you leighi123, thank you TroubleT for always organizing these birthday swaps, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all January babies!  Cheesy

What a day in swappy world! I sent a package, recieved a package and did a ton of work redeeming another swap project I tried to kill. That last one is another story. But now I have to share my goodies! Miss Barbara claimed me for a W.I.P. basket, and boy, did she deliver!


Here are all the goodies together. Before my darling daughter started grabbing.


Here is my awesome new basket!! I didn't have anything right at that moment to fill it and make it stand up nice. But it is wonderfully made out of really pretty yarn, and it's the perfect size. And I think I know just the project to put in there...


My little girl turned three a few weeks before my birthday, so she really doesn't get that mommy has a birthday of her own. So we opened gifts together. I also had to share this pic because it shows the awesome wrapping paper!


And here are the extras! Two boxes of my favorite teas, peppermint and green, a cake in a cup and post-its. Yay! I took the cake to the office for when I am having a case of the Mondays.

Miss Barbara, you kicked butt and totally made my day. Also, I love the bright orange paper you used to wrap it up. It looked so fun on my porch! Cheesy

I received a great birthday package from stellato_escuro today - awesome shrinky dink stitch markers and a crochet necklace ... but it's going to be just a couple days until I can upload pics cuz of my work schedule!  If you have pics, Katherine, feel free to post them in the meantime ... today was a 14 hour shift (I never get out on time!), so I end up getting home AFTER bedtime  Tongue  And I have two more days of work to go ... ugh!

But ... I LOVE MY NEW STITCH MARKERS  Grin

Finally - time off to post a few pictures and send out thank yous for the wonderful birthday gifts!

First up a picture of my new stitch markers and crochet necklace from stellato_escuro ...



Of all the stitch markers I've seen and pinned I never thought of shrinky dink ones - love them!  (Who doesn't love shrinky dinks?!)  I was actually carrying them around this morning enjoying the clinking sound they make together ... Thanks Katherine, just what I needed!

Next up is my package from Ginger aka sinellia ... talk about getting spoiled!  Here's what my package included:

Lavendar Chocolate Lip Balm (missing from the picture - already taken to work and sitting in my locker!)
- Lemon Meringue Body Butter
- Lime Coconut Salt Scrub
- Lemon Meringue Sugar Scrub
- Grapefruit Eucalyptus Soap
- Apple Bath Truffles
- A precious little embroidery of a narwhal
- Tiny flower pots with seeds to grow!
- and a copy of Bhagavad Gita - because of my love of religions.







My evening plans including a long wonderful apple truffle bath followed by a sea salt scrub of the feet and scrubbing everywhere else with sugar!  And finishing up with a rub down of Lemon Meringue Body Butter! (and I'll be reading the Bhagavad Gita while in the tub!)

Thanks again, Ginger, for the awesome birthday gifts ... I'm doing some finishing touches on your and they will be in the mail soon!

I think I'll be able to get my packages to sinellia and leighi123 out in the mail today ... tomorrow at the very latest.  I've had so much fun making stuff for this swap and the presents I received are AWESOME!

I got such a pretty package from phnxreign99 last night. She made me a hoop with the cover of one of my albums on it (so touching!) and she made me a really sweet sequin dress with batwing arms that I can't wait to wear when I play the art museum next month in my hometown. Woo! Thank you so much Tammy, you made the last few weeks feel better today.

So glad you like your gifts, Kat ... Being in Toronto, I pictured it with leggings and a turtleneck ... But you can rock it as a dress  Cool.  Glad you signed up this year, cuz I had your hoopla all planned out last year but ran out of time! 

Thanks to our always awesome organizer, TroubleT!  (I'm always sending thing out last and tying things up!)

Sorry for the delay in posting!

I received TWO lovely birthday packages.  First one is from loves2experiment!


Some yummy tea, a mug with a fancy mug cozy from my pinterest, an ADORABLE little birthday card, and a coffee tea paper cup cozy.  She also sent some really nice lavender sugar scrub, but it's already in my shower and half gone.


A close-up of the super cute teacup cozy.  I was so happy to receive one of these.  I had one in the past, but it was washed in hot water by accident and ruined.  This totally made my day!!!

Thank you so much, loves2experiment.  Everything is PERFECT!

Next up, another lovely package from phnxreign99!


Some super cute molds for clay.  These will definitely come in handy in the ceramics class I'm currently taking!


A little box with my favorite image of Radha and Krishna on it!


Wait, there's more?!  The maha-mantra on the inside is super cute.


Inside those little packages were some adorable Krishna pendants.  Love 'em!

Thank you for the great package, phnxreign99!!

I'm so lucky to have received two AMAZING packages.  Best birthday evarrrr! <3 <3 <3

Look what I got! 

Wrapped up:


Fun erasers for Levi:


These are yoga socks, they fit perfectly, I'm wearing them now!   They are also great for sewing, which I usually do barefoot but its been cold.



Please excuse my weird looking arm:   Rainbow bracelet with "Levi" on it.  I love the fun mix of different beads.  Its comfy too!


Magnets:  The cups I used to keep track of water intake (I have to have 100 oz a day, with the glasses I use, thats 8, so I just flip these upside down as I drink to make sure I get the right amount -very useful), and dishwasher magnet, so we know when to load and unload:


Such a great package!
