PM sent!

At first I had a hard time coming up with ten things, then I ended up with a few more once I got rolling, number thirteen isn't likely though. ;)

You just never know what's possible!  I'll have to go look over your list now! :)

I just PMd my application... I'm so excited!  Once I got on a roll making my list, I had no trouble coming up with 10 (or 15) wish items!

I just sent my questionnaire! Yay, I'm excited for this. What better than a swap to get all of those necessary (er, desired?) things for summer? I tried not to put anything too outrageous on my wishlist, though!


Title: Re: Get Ready for Summer Swap (SIGNUPS June 1 - 9, SENDOUT June 30)
Post by: yarn_tart on June 08, 2007 08:02:20 AM
Just sent my info.  I tried to keep my items pretty open so my partner can have a lot of fun coming up with ideas!

This is just what I need to be back into summer.

I'm still holding out for number 13.
;)

I've been picking up things here and there since this was in the ideas forum. I figure it can't hurt, and if I don't use it for the swap....(I'm thinking it won't be long before Hubster figures this ploy out though.) HA!

I can't stand the suspense.... What is number 13??!!  I can't wait to see others' lists, too.  This is fun!

Now we just have to wait for our partners, I skipped going to any crafty store yesterday in anticipation of this, my crafty money needs to go to my swap.

Ahhhh, I see!  I'd be going along, too, you know.  ;)  I don't think I could deliver that treat, though.... sorry.  :-\

Partners are here on the first post!

I tried to do some posts here last night after Craftster came back up, but I couldn't get them to go through.  Probably just growing pains. ;)

Partner information will be going out shortly!  Happy shopping and crafting!

Awww!  I wish I saw this three days ago, but I've only just been okayed to do more swaps because I just finished my first one.  This looked like so much fun!  Maybe next time.

How's everyone doing?  I finished today!  Yeah for me! ;D  I should be mailing before Wednesday.  I'm so excited!!!

Could everyone post here in the thread so that I know all is well?  Thanks dolls! :)

This has been a quiet post, hasn't it?  I checked it a few times to make sure it was still here!  I'm still working on my stuff.... I'll ship by Friday.


Title: Re: Get Ready for Summer Swap (SIGNUPS June 1 - 9, SENDOUT June 30)
Post by: khraene on June 24, 2007 11:11:53 PM
Finished today! Well, yesterday, technically. I'll probably be sending within the next few days. Yay!

Post by: HippieChick7 on June 25, 2007 01:41:20 AM
I have a question...I ordered something to go along in the swap and it isn't here yet! What do I do? I want to send it off in time but what if all of the goodies haven't arrived to me yet?
Other than that I have a few things to do here and there and I will be shipping it Friday.


Title: Re: Get Ready for Summer Swap (SIGNUPS June 1 - 9, SENDOUT June 30)
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on June 25, 2007 06:09:10 AM
HippieChick - you can arrange with your partner to send a little bit late, I won't hold it against you. :)  Just keep me and your partner posted and it will be fine.


Yeah, it has been quiet.  Hopefully that means we are all crafting our butts off.  I know I've been working on 3 swaps, plus regular working and working on Craftster - it gets a little busy sometimes in the summer.


Title: Re: Get Ready for Summer Swap (SIGNUPS June 1 - 9, SENDOUT June 30)
Post by: RobertaMac on June 25, 2007 11:18:44 AM
I'm here, I'm here!!
Been crafting, I'm thinking I'll be done by Wed. So send out on Friday likely.
You ever have something in mind, it's perfect! But no matter where you go, you just can't find it? It's driven me nuts!!
This has been a busy summer, but now this crafting time is down time, and I'm enjoying all that I can get!!

Haha, That's why I'm kinda behind! Had to order some stuff online and it isn't here yet.  :-[

Hopefully it will be here in the next couple of days so I can still send on Friday. If not I will ask my partner if it's okay, which she probably won't mind at all. I'll wait it out and watch my mailbox every second I get.

I am ready to send!  RobertaMac's package is sitting here on my desk all sealed and addressed and ready to go.  I'll be mailing this afternoon and I'll send the DC# by this evening.  I don't think I've ever sent early!LOL  I usually wait until the last possible second.  What a strange feeling.....

Well I hope to be sending tomrrow.  :P I have gotten a bit behind, I am going to point the finger at the little ones. LOL They just seem to want to swim all day long and I cannot drag them in to the house so I can craft what  a bummer. :)

Just got back from Last Last minute supply shopping, in hopes that they might have what I was looking for.
Nope.
What they do have is nice, but not what I had in my head.
This has distracted me way too much!
Luckily, everything else but two items are finished, so I didn't get too far off track. I'll finish one tonight, and the other tomorrow night.
My last swap I was so eager, I sent out five days early, now I'm feeling like a slacker.

Ohhh, my package is ready, I'm so excited. I'll be seriously worrying the mail lady again. She knows when I'm waiting for a package, I'm almost like a vulture, circling the mailbox.

Yes, I'm sitting here in my glittery flip flops wondering what else everyone got!

And Dawn, the glittery ones really make quite a FLIP FLOP sound when walking down the isles at the market. I had a few people look at me curiously. And if I curl my toes while walking, the sound amplifies!  ;D

I just want 'em to look at my glittery feet, and dazzle them just a little.

And again, with the ELO and my strange brain, we jump like this:
ELO
Telephone Line
Adam Sandler movie with Steve Buscemi wearing lipstick crossing names off his hit list.
A giant penguin

So I have to nominate the Text Award to you, because yous does this to me every time.

All I can come up with for that one is the Jump Scene in Bicentennial Man.

I have a very strange brain.
