After sending my first claim off so incredibly early, I've already fallen into old habits.  I will be mailing A2K's and texscrapper's things on Tuesday (which is the due date for both).  My excuse is a heck of a lot of dog sitting lately.  When I have my daughter's dog, I can't go downstairs to my craft room because the dog cries the entire time.  I'm just going to have to let him cry for a while tomorrow and put the finishing touches on these two claims.

My crafting schedule tends to be based on my dogs, too.  I hate them being downstairs on their own for too long (I've always worked from home since we've had them so they are extremely used to LOTS of Mommy time) so I work on embroidery or hand sewing or drawing downstairs and keep painting and woodburning upstairs so that when Daddy's home, he can be downstairs with them. 


I started feeling a bit better today so I got a chance to work on a couple of my claims.  Plus the husband returned from Michael's with my requested items (which I kept down to 4) perfectly!  HURRAH!!  Cheesy

Hope you are on the mend, gypsy!

We had our family Christmas over the weekend, and my craft room is packed up.  I will start the unpacking process later today or tomorrow, and get quaggy's mug rug made!  Hope to ship by Wednesday.

I am almost done with one sock...it is such a fun pattern that I can't stop...I even got up before work to work on it! Grin

I am collecting a few extra supplies to send to Grab A Coffee...if you send overseas, you might as well cram the package as much as you can! Grin

i hope to send later this week so I can claim a whole bunch more...wouldn't it be fun if we beat our own personal send out records as well as hit the group 100?  I know way back in my early swap days, I sent out six in one month...I probably don't have the energy for that now, but over the year, I am sure I can set my own goal!!!

My three claims are finished, packed, and will be sent this afternoon!  

And it's been a while since I have done an OWS round so I can't remember... do I have to wait until packages are received before making another claim?

We have been allowing people to claim again once they have shipped. I realize this could be an issue if someone were to send a package that does not meet swap requirements. It would be especially bad if they sent 3 sub-par packages and then claimed again for 3 more and sent those before the first 3 had been received and we realized they were not putting in the care, time and attention expected in this swap. I find it pretty hard to picture this happening even though I acknowledge there is a chance.

Please let me know if you feel the risk is too great - It certainly seemed like less of a risk in much much smaller rounds.

I am comfortable with that.  I have yet to see a sub-par OWS package in ANY of the rounds I have participated in.  I suppose if it became a problem in the future the rules could be changed to packages having to be received before claiming again.

I agree.  The couple of rounds I've been in have all been great.  I feel perfectly comfortable being claimed by someone who hasn't "delivered" yet.  People on craftster are awesome at what they do!

I can not wait to see this gallery explode with awesomeness!  Cheesy
