If you are sending internationally and are done and want to send now, that would be fine, it takes a bit longer. But if you are sending within the US, please wait a bit to send.  It will be over three weeks till the majority of people will send and it's more fun if packages are coming in regularly. Smiley

I went to a craft fair today and was so inspired I came home and crafted up an item for my stocking, and dug up supplies for more.

Yay, I finally had a decent crafting time and got most of the stocking done, along with some of the items to go in!  I think I am done purchasing items, but we shall see! I can't believe it's November already.

My friends I am addicted to "crackster".  I think they might be right.
I am interested in personal swaps, just send me a pm!

I love my life, my hubby, my sons, and my 2 crazy dogs!  Isn't life grand?

I can't believe it's November either! My daughter came in yesterday and saw that I had the Thanksgiving dcor up. She said "Yay! It feels like the holidays. I'm so excited". I love it when the kids get excited about stuff. Especially the teenager, because she's doesn't like anything.  Roll Eyes

I started something else for the stocking this morning. I think it's really neat so far. Hopefully I won't mess it up somewhere along the way. I'm thinking of starting another for myself actually.  Grin

I had a super successful shopping trip on Sunday where I managed to get every last supply I needed to complete the swap, including the fabric for the stocking.

Tonight I'll be making my stocking pattern and getting it underway so I can make sure everything else will fit.  Grin

I have the stocking and one item finished, working on my second crafted item for inside the stocking.

Just checking in.  Still nothing to report.  BUT... this Saturday is my monthly Craft Day with my friends.  12 straight hours of crafting!  (Well... and supply shopping... and eating... and watching mindless junk on Netflix.  But most of it is crafting, I swear.)  So I know for sure that I will have an update to give this weekend.

And just so my partner doesn't freak out: I have the entire week of Thanksgiving off from work, so even though I might be taking things a little down to the wire, I know that I will have plenty of time this month to put my full effort into crafting for this swap.  Wink

I ended up getting a lot further than I had expected tonight - the stocking is done and I've put everything I have so far in it. I think not having the stocking done was holding me back, because now I'm just itching to work on the other items... who needs sleep?!  Roll Eyes
