Angry So irritated at myself. I went to Michael's TWICE and forgot canvas. Grr. I have a TOTALLY awesome idea for adrienne's art I'm just afraid the paint won't dry since it's been cold and gusty lately Dx Plus Fall detritus doesn't really compliment the theme I'm going for lol!

   Mama's pillows are coming along nicely ^^ I have to remember they're for a boy though so I can't get extra fancy :< All well, it's still an awesome gift for her son!  Cheesy

Well we have all decided that we will keep this swap running all year and I'm all for it, butttt, I was thinking, in January it will be the 100th OWS!!! Wow!! And Averia wants to make it special somehow. I think I will not run the OGS just for January just so the OWS can have the spotlight. You guys ok with that? And hey if she really wants to get to 100 claims we gotta be able to do that and being in 2 ongoing swaps will make it harder for that to happen, soooo....what do you guys think?

We can skip a month ^^ Not gonna make that big a difference I don't think. Ongoing doesn't mean "can't take breaks for awesome 100th anniversary swaps"  Cheesy

Wall art is started I'm kinda excited and frustrated at the same time o.o

I'm ok with giving the ows 100 the spotlight.  I think that's awesome.  Oh I hope 100 claims can be achieved that would be amazing abd so fun!

I personally want to be in both.  My lack of Craftster made gifts this year has shown me I need to start waaaaay earlier than June to collect gifts for the holidays.

Mama24boys, I think it will be awhile before I get tired of doing both swaps.... but I'm also not sure if I'll be recovering next month from the Christmas crazies or ready to go turbo on swapping, it's a toss so I'm up for any decision you make Smiley

I received a claim from adrienne_bowers today for some pincushions.  She made a super cutesy cupcake pincushion (with a pompom on top that made me laugh) in a cupcake dish!  She also made a double-pillow pincushion and included some adorable lil pins.  These pincushions are totally my SIL's style so I'm thrilled that I have time to send them to her for Christmas...and I'm totally rewrapping it in the matching paper shreds that adrienne sent them in, too cute.  Thanks adrienne_bowers!

ive managed to come down with the flu, son had it few days ago, daughter has it, her son has developed whooping cough, he just turned 4, and now hubby has it too. i left work early on thurs and called in today. i have not touched any of the claims cuz i dont want to germ them, nor have i felt any energy to think about working on them. i sent messages prior to the flu hitting me that id be late, it hit at work just after i had breakfast. grandson just left with his auntie to spend the weekend at his other grandma's, son is doing better, daughter is at work but its an iceskating rink and snowing, schools closing early and the scanner squeeks about many cars in the ditch and accidents. im heading back to bed in a while, i will need to go in sometime the weekend to make up some lost time at work provided i feel better and the roads are ok. im sooo ready for spring!

Sweet claim from Adrienne you got Watson! The pin cushions and pins are great. what a neat idea to do a pin cushion in a cup like that.

im off to bed to rest again. Take care all!
