Finished a batch of things for swaps but I probably won't want to submit them to the nerdalong until after my partners receive, so I might not slip in under the wire.   Tongue

I wish we could extend the ending date so we could sneak in some more time to craft! My day after Thanksgiving time is getting absorbed by a drive to the airport to drop off my mom... and the day after that I may have to spend the time bagging up a HUGE pile of leaves my lawn guy piled in the street (not realizing that the city had already done the fall collection in my neighborhood). After loading up bags of leaves, I'll be done in for the rest of the weekend...

Dear Nerd Crafters,

As you may have noticed, I have been away for many days & weeks.  I do so apologize for this absence.  I did not mean to distress anyone.  If you have sent me a PM about my absence, please note that I will not be answering them individually; there are just too many.  Let me say that I was away due to a very personal matter.  I could not muster the joy to write, update, and spend time with you.  Though my craftster activities were on my mind and I did fret many times for not posting, I really was not in a state to jump in.  This autumn has not been kind to me, but I hope that I can return to this one place that I do so deeply love and cherish.  I hate to think that I have deterred anyone from joining this group, caused someone to stray from this group due to my absence, or worried anyone.  That was never my intention, and to those who wrote to me that I caused distress, worry, or upsetness, I truly apologize.  I am not one to air my feelings to many, especially those of sadness.  But I felt you deserved some explanation of my absence.  Know I just couldn't bring myself to be here when I was so low; it is because I feel very close to this craftster community.

I am determined not to let my struggles prevent me from enjoying your company any longer.  I am determined to put on a smile and think upon new crafty adventures.  For the Nerd Battles, I will say that I would love someone to take up the reigns of this fantastic craftalong.  I feel like I neglect you too much, that I am always behind, and this weighs on me deeply.  I will be a helping hand to anyone who wish to take up this craftalong, and I shall help anyway you wish.  PM me if you wish to lead this great group.  If someone can do this for just one season, I would be forever grateful!

If no one comes up, then I shall be extending the deadline for this season so that I may properly prepare for the next round.

Thank you for reading.  And I beg that you please grant me a bit more of your patience as I update during this week.  For those who have proposed Research Projectss, please do not wait on me to craft; go forth & craft!  Remember we are here to inspire each other and to get crafting. 

Let us look forward to a very happy winter!

Blessed Be,
Melissa aka pinkleo

pinkleo,you were one of my first swap partners; the Shakespeare swap back in 2008. Your kindness and encouragement  meant a lot to a newbie! I've only been reading along with the Nerd games,because I've just been too busy right now to participate. I hope that things get better for you.

Pinkleo, you are among friends.  Smiley ((((hugs)))) 

Sorry to hear that you have been struggling.  I was looking thru my stash of greeting cards today (coz I needed to send out some thank you cards) and found one that I'd crafted at a scrap group a while back. The sentiment read:  It will be alright in the end - if it's not alright, it's not the end.  I found it a comforting reminder in the crush of stress I'm experiencing at the moment. Perhaps it will make you feel better, too.

Keep your chin up, we're all pulling for you!  Smiley

Hi Pinkleo,

hope you're better soon - I'm sure we all agree that you should take as much time as you need before you come back.

pinkleo, I am sending you a big giant hug. And, I'm not one who usually hugs, so that means it's extra special Smiley Grin Here's hoping that things can be back to happy for you soon!

And, as much as I'd love to take up the reins right now, because I want the games to continue, my schedule is too crazy to commit to it. Maybe we could extend the deadline until after the holidays (without adding any new challenges), and then re-visit the timing of the next round after that?

Maybe, after the madness of the holidays (and my required class for work is finished near the end of January, I can set the next round up (especially if I can get some of the awesome assistants you rounded up for this round!).

I think I'm going to have to give up on the competitive aspect of the Games and just enjoy it as a craft-along, because I can't keep up and I feel like I have totally let down my team this go-around.  Cry I think I'll just nerd-along, but not compete, in the future, if that's possible.
