Can everyone who sent in their info make sure they are listed on the first post and have correct feedback showing it is in progress. 

Also........does anyone have an problems crafting for my 6 year old son?  I want to be sure I don't pair up with someone who totally doesn't want to craft for a child.  He is so excited about this!  :D

I'm versatile. I don't mind crafting for a 6 year old. As long as no one minds crafting for my 24 year old self! ha!

I'm not sure I could swap for a 6 year old. Sorry. :S
But I can work with 24! I hope no one minds crafting for 15 year old me!

I wouldn't mind crafting for a 6 year old.  I've been brainstorming craft ideas and most if not all of the stuff I came up with would be kid safe. ;)  I can't wait to get started, there are so many cool things to make for Pokemon!

I'm not sure if I could craft for a 6 year old.
I think I could, but then I'm afraid that I can't! XD
But I could try. :D

Ahh, just a few more days! :D
I've got two three hour car rides coming up later today and tomorrow, hmm, wonder what I'll be thinking about!!! ;]]

So, if you are even remotely thinking about it....speak now.  :D

I haven't heard much from anyone...how is everyone doing?  Are they going to be able to meet deadline or should I push it out a bit?  I know there are a few other swaps ending at the exact same time.....just wondering.  :)

Sorry it took me so long to reply; I was out of town this last week.  I got lots done while I was away though.  It's amazing how much you can accomplish when you're on a plane flight/driving in a car and there's nothing else to do. ;)

Need to do some finishing moves on my large package, and wait for soem things to dry and I'm done! hehe I'm probably gonna put some more things in it because I happen to be off Thursday and Friday so I'll have more time to craft. hehe.


Title: Re: Pokemon Swap (Sign Ups CLOSED Send by: 10/30)
Post by: Trocks on October 21, 2007 07:39:05 AM
Slowly, I'm running out of ideas!
Good thing I've already gotten atleast one of everything done.
=P

Post by: Maltiriel on October 22, 2007 12:41:31 PM
I've got lots of things in progress but nothing quite finished yet...  I actually wouldn't mind an extended deadline, just to make sure I have enough time and all...  Hopefully I can get a ton done this weekend though, since I don't work Friday.


Title: Re: Pokemon Swap (Sign Ups CLOSED Send by: 10/30)
Post by: MnkyMama on October 22, 2007 12:49:28 PM
Being that I haven't heard from anyone...and we have no senders as of yet.....I'm going to go ahead and push the send out date out a bit. 

I need everyone to check in and tell me how they are doing.....have you heard from your partner? 

Sexylilsushiroll, I haven't heard a word....how are things going for my son?  He is so excited to get a package.....and he's been really good lately...so I'm excited to be able to surprise him when it comes in!

My partner and I are fine. We've decided on our amounts of items and I'll be all ready to send by the end of the month, no problem.

I'm doing good really pushing along. I'm almost done with everything, just throwing in some last minute extras.

How's everyone else's stuff coming?
:)
I'm still in a slump.

But I've been watching (a lot of) Pokemon the last few days to try and get some ideas.

Post by: Penguinotic on November 04, 2007 08:03:57 AM
I'm doing well, not getting as much done as I'd hoped. I'll probably have to wait until the 15th to send the package though! I hope thats not a problem. ;)

Post by: Maltiriel on November 05, 2007 07:44:46 AM
