Fall is my favorite season! I'll keep an eye on this one until I get feedback on the 2 swaps I just mailed.
I have to look at the calendar to see if I can manage a large item in that time frame-it seems a bit tight (just because of another swap I'm already signed up for).

Ohhhh snap. I'm going to have to keep this one in mind, I haven't swapped in almost a year (I know, right??!!) and this might just be the one to get me back into the swing of it. I'll have to double check the calendar and make sure nothing big is coming up.

i wish it was 55 and drizzly here.  I hate summer...blech.  I mean, sunny is good, but hot=yuck!  Especially because it is always so humid here...everything sticks to you.

I was just having this conversation yesterday. I hate summer too! At least midwestern, nowhere-near-a-body-of-water summers. It's impossible for me to enjoy being outside because it's too hot and too humid. And my body doesn't deal well with humidity, so I can't spend more than 15 or so minutes outside without feeling like I'm going to pass out. So yeah, fall is always welcome in my house.  ;D

We've had about two nice, summery weeks so far. Lol. That works for me. I'm not much of a heat person either. I feel like a poodle when it gets humid.

Are you kidding? I LIVE for that smell! It reminds me of childhood since I grew up in the Northwest. Living in the desert blows since we don't have that smell at all.

The smell I love most is actually the smell of plant matter decaying. It just smells so full of life and promise. It's the same reason I love the smell of freshly turned earth.

I still don't know if I can join this one yet... I'm torn between it and the Happy Housewife Swap. :(

Lately I've found that tea tree oil to be fairly satisfying when it comes to the smell of earth so it makes the no-fall of Vegas bearable lol

I grew up in the North Central area and now am in the PNW - and I gotta say, two different fall smells.  :)  Growing up seemed to be dry and crisp and full of the smells of bonfires, dried leaves, apples and the looming snowfall.  Out here ... gosh, I dont know if I could describe fall out here.  Because it's not really it's own season (to me, that is! others may experience it differently!).  It's like summer just kind of mushes into a fall-ish time that mushes into a winter-ish time.  Back home it was SUMMER! now AUTUMN! now INDIAN SUMMER! now FALL! now WINTER!  Bam!   :o   Or maybe I just remember it being so, because fall = school when I lived there.   

And there's no smell of dried leaves here, because they NEVER DRY OUT.  And even if the top layer of a leaf pile was dry, underneath there would be wet leaves and SLUGS.   :-\     :D

Though fall out here does have good stuff you don't find elsewhere.  Corn grows longer out here than the midwest, so sometimes we'll have fresh-from-the-field sweet corn in October!  And it's so much easier to put up decorations for holidays when you only have to worry about rain, not torrential ice storms. :)  And you can have plants in your yard so that you have blooms all year round!!

I know what you mean!! I really hate the humidity here. I have lived in a worse area though! The humidity was awful when we were in NC.

I love the smell of Fall too. I grew up in AZ. hmmm what, the smell of Fall? What's that? lol But here in MI, it's so awesome!!!

When Fall starts to arrive, I'm as excited as a kid on Christmas morning. Then the fist snow, forget it! I'm over the moon!!  Sometimes I sit up at night and just watch the snow fall. oh how I love living here.  ;D

Okay I just added those who sent in questionnaires.
If you sent me one and are not on the list, let me know.
 


I am just loving this thread. 
It makes me daydream of fall
which I need during these 100 degree days.

And I'm thrilled that the stores are starting to fill their shelves with fall goodies
especially the craft stores.

Well off to dream of autumn.....and all the craft I could make for this swap  ;D

Is it just me, or does fall just have the most amazing smell ever...
Oh yes it does...especially all the fall food smells...cinnamon, apples, pumpkins...sorry I'm really hungry right now so my daydreams lead to fall feasts.

Yay! I am all signed up. This is my first swap so I am a little nervous but I am super excited. Fall is totally my favorite time of year! I love the smell of corn because I am surrounded by corn fields and it gets kind of sweet smelling. I can already smell the pumpkin too. Mmmm.... pumpkin pie.

Be Warned; swapping is very addictive!  :D

Corn is a great smell!  
I love my corn grilled, then topped with butter and lemon pepper.  
Mmmmmm

I love the smell and the sound and the taste of fall. I love walking around in the woods and crunching leaves under foot. For me though, my favorite thing about fall is apple cider!

I am just waiting for some feedback, and then I will sign up for this swap. I keep telling myself that I will stop trying to do 5 swaps at one time, but I can't stop!!!

Does anyone want to brainstorm with me? I'm having a helluva time thinking of things to make! I haven't officially joined yet because I want to make sure I feel plenty inspired first, ya know?

some ideas I've had:
cowl/scarf + gloves/mittens/fingerless gloves + hat combo
shawl + hat + wrist warmers combo
mug cozy (for all the hot cider and tea!)
tea
cider
things decoupaged with leaves? (no idea how I'd handle that one since we don't really have deciduous trees here lol)
bookmarks (gotta love reading outside in fall)
picnic stuff? (tough call because autumn is mild in some places, really cold in others)

Anyone else have some new ideas? I guess I just can't think of anything terribly novel. :(

Post by: bookstorebabe on August 02, 2008 04:01:25 PM
Ideas-hmm. make something with beads in lovely shades of red, green, gold, brown, ect. Or decoupage something with a fall theme, or fall colors. A fairy or poppet. Fall recipies and a box. An altered book. Decorate a frame or mirror. Embroider a tea towel, paint a tshirt. Acorn caps make good hats for tiny dolls.

I so want to do this-I'm just trying to decide if I can take on two swaps at once.
I love the crisp air, bright leaves against the bluest sky, leaf scrunching. Tart, crisp, apples. Black eyed susans and ironweed. Gathering nuts. I still have a buckeye somewhere from years ago. A fire-inside or out. Poetry for some strange reason.Sigh-fall never gets here soon enough, and never lasts long enough.

Ideas-hmm. make something with beads in lovely shades of red, green, gold, brown, ect. Or decoupage something with a fall theme, or fall colors. A fairy or poppet. Fall recipies and a box. An altered book. Decorate a frame or mirror. Embroider a tea towel, paint a tshirt. Acorn caps make good hats for tiny dolls.

Don't forget pumpkins! Painted pumpkins, felted pumpkins, crochet, knitted, stuffed, sparkly, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin recipes, fimo pumpkins, photos of pumpkins....Sigh. I love pumpkins. Lol.

What about scarecrows? You could make a mini scarecrow? Or a decorated fall wreath?

And apples. Apples mean fall for me. GOT to have apples.

I'm totally with you on the poetry. Autumn always brings out the poet in me. :)

Don't forget corn, squash, potatoes, all the root veggies - or "harvest time" in general!

Harvest moon!

Cider time!

One of my long-time fall memories is cinnamin doughnuts at the cider mill. :)

nuts!
berries
preparing for winter
countryside in general - walking the stone walls in fall, birches in their glorious colours....

:)

YEA! 20 fall peeps!  8)
2 more days for signups.  
Those lurking, you know you need some fall goodies! ;D


I've added all those who have sent in a questionnaire.  
As always, if you see a prob like not being added, double entry, whatever, let me know.


P.S. I'm super ready for fall; it was 108 degrees F here yesterday.  :P

Fall.... *wistful sigh* Florida doesn't have that season. It's brutal, summer heat until about mid-October when the temps start going down - into the 80's.  :-\

I'm so full up on swaps though right now. Bah. Great theme though.

I saw a commercial on T.V today for traveling to Vermont in Fall. I wish I could have played it over and over, just so I could look at the trees. Gorgeous! I can't wait for partners so I have an excuse to go buy some lovely Autumn fabrics.

Geez-it was 93 and HUMID here today-thank god for AC! I could barely stand getting the mail. I'm so ready for fall!
I love the ideas being thrown around...I think warm cozy slippers, cider (or tea), changing leaves and fleece is the epitomy (sp?) of fall :)

wish I could participate.  I just don't want to put so much pressure on myself yet.  I've got one set up with a different theme, so if anyone sets one up again I'd love to join.  but with the other one being my first, I want to just focus on that right now.  fall is my favorite time of year.  I even have a tattoo inspired by it.

great idea and have fun!  I hope to join in some day!   :)

Yeah, Pumpkins and leaves are two of my favorite fall things, but I love halloween, and that falls under autumn, so I guess that counts. Lol. The fall scents are awesome though. Sometimes, when I'm too lazy to actually make candles, I just pull out the big box of scents that we have in the garage to smell them. We have awesome smells to, like apples and cinnamon and spiced pear and coffee and.. -dies thinking about the awesomeness of fall smells-

Sorry, right focus.

So... everyone likes candles, right? I have a few days off from work because of a different shift and I want to get a jump start on my -mumblemumblemumble- ^.^

That's funny because I actually just bought a bunch of Pumpkin and Hazelnut scented candles! Candles are a great way to get into any season. lol. And that was very subtle, btw.

Awesome. I need to start getting into fall mode, I think. Knit some stuff.. Its just been too hot to knit much. And yeah, candles are awesome all the time. We have scents like holly and spruce for winter, all different types of flowers for spring, fresh linen and lemon and and other fruits for summer, and all those awesome fall scents. And there are so many more that I don't own that I really want to get now (just checked the order sheet, and they have new scents... yum. Time to call the warehouse. Their smallest candle business registered with them ever needs to restock. Lol)

And what was subtle? -innocentblinkblink- ^.^

Squee!

I'm so excited to start this swap :)

Hobby lobby just had all their fall candles on 50% off, so I stocked up on all sorts of fall spice and pumpkin candles.  mmmmmmmm

i've already started a list of oh so many ideas for this swap.  i've been wanting to get into felt stuffies, maybe this is the time to make one :)  and also this is a great excuse to get back into knitting again,even though it's close to 90 and so humid you feel wet when you go outside

rae: windchimes, great idea.  and yes, they also make me think of fall, maybe because it gets so blustery around here in october, so you hear them a lot more

I stopped by JoAnnes today to get some cross stitch supplies, and wandered through all the fall goodies...they had this adorable stuffed patchwork pumpkin, that I was tempted to get...but I think I'll make one instead. I wish their fabrics were more affordable...as it is, I go there and treat myself to a couple purchases a month.

 ;D Hi Everyone! ;D

I'm so excited that it is almost time to for partners!
I can't wait to craft some fall goodies.

I will be closing down sign-ups tomorrow around 7 P.M. for those last minute participants.

I have done a prelimnary partner match-up so partners should be coming out later that evening, barring internet troubles (I'm having new lines put in tomorrow afternoon) or tons of new participants.

If you have signed up, make sure I have your profile correct and that you are on the participant list.

Off to light my cider donut yankee candle and dream of autumn.

Fall.... *wistful sigh* Florida doesn't have that season.

ah that reminds me of one of the saddest things i've ever heard...so one my ex boyfriends, who, when he said this, had just moved up here to washington state from palm springs cali where there also is NO FALL, was really genuinely surprised and didnt know what the hell was going on when the leaves here started turning colors lol. before that it never really occurred to me that there were people (at least in the US) that had never experienced autumn.
another thing i had never considered.... he had never seen baby ducks either..since the only ones you see in southern california are the adult ones flying south for the winter.
anyways  ::) i thought id share that

Aw! Poor guy. Actually, that reminds me of a story too. My grandma had just moved to the states from Trinidad and Tobago, and was visiting my family in Washinton in winter time. She woke up to all the snow and completely freaked out! She seriously thought the sky was falling.

Anyway, not too long left!

How about...

...a pincushion in autumn color/patterns, perhaps leaf-shaped, acorn-shaped, or pie-shaped (I'm very into my food)...

...a little fall recipe book...

...fall notecards or bookmarks....

...hat or wristlet(I'm a sucker for wristlets)...

...maybe a small easy sewing kit (kits are always fun)...

Okay that's all I have on the top of my head.
You can always PM me if you need ideas/help.

I did it!

I had our brand new baby boy at 2:05 this morning.

And I CAUGHT him MYSELF! ;D

Thank you all for the well wishes; it really couldn't have gone better. I'm feeling pretty darn good and Baby Caleb is doing great.

I posted about it all on my livejournal (check out my profile) if anyone is interested. :)

this morning, before the sun was up very high, there was definitely a whiff of fall in the air

you could almost smell the crisp crunchy leafy air

almost

and I know we're likely to hit 90 again before august is out, but still.

Thanks! I'm doing something with felt for my medium project and my cat found the folded felt while I was cutting, and she loved it so much I had to take a moment to make her a big felt pillow to lay on, haha. i've never seen her love anything as much as she loved felt!

august has been a nutso month for me.  has it been crazy for anyone else?  weddings, vacations, surgeries, more weddings.  but now i can hunker in and get this swap finished  :D

by the way, the olympics have been a wonderful opportunity to get lots of _____ing done, although they've altered my sleeping habits, keeping me up way past bed time :)

Oh it has been a crazy month...
Wishes of Get Well to those who had surgeries and illness...

The craziness of summer (vacations and all) and the start of the school year/semester is the main reason I tried to have a long craft time for this swap...

I'm plodding away on my large, turning extra-large project....
Luckily it has kept me busy during the wee-hours whilst watching the Olympics...

On another note...my little one starts kindergarten tomorrow...
I'm so excited and weepy....

So I thought I would take a break from a project that will take a while and do a small item that I thought was going to be quick.

It took a bit longer, 3 1/2 hours. But it's all done.  ;D

I did it will I watched a few Sunday night shows we like to watch and then finished it during Big Brother on Showtime.

I hope everyone is making good progress on their fall items.

Now would be a nice time to post or PM so your partner feels all warm and fuzzy because they don't have to worry about flaking.  I see many have been doing this already...THANK YOU!.  ;D


This week has been a wash for me.  I found myself so busy this week as both of my children headed off to school; there were meetings, shopping, and special welcome back parties.  I am thrilled to have a long weekend to cuddle up with my crafting goodies and make something (or finish something).  And I am loving crafting all these fall goodies.  It is almost September, and autumn truly approaches.

I have one item done, but have been gathering materials for everything else.  I'm doing a new-to-me skill for this so am a bit nervous!  :) 

Also looking forward to the long weekend for crafting.  I was going to visit my parents over Labor Day weekend but am still sick (hacking up a lung every 5 mintues) so am going to stay at home on my own couch and be miserable here.  But crafting!  And a new batch of DVDs from Netflix should be arriving today, so I'll get to craft and watch movies at the same time.   :D

It got so cold here last night, I actually - oh my goodness - had to use ...........

A BLANKET!!!

Yes!!!!!  The first night this fall I've needed a blanket!  WOOO!  Not a heavy blanket, mind you, but still, the first night I needed something other than just the sheet.  Huzzah, huzzah!!  FALL IS COMING!!!!!

I'm 3/4 the way done with the large one.  which has turned into an extra-large, in terms of time needed to finish it.

medium and smalls will be fairly quick, though super cute and awesome, so i'm feeling good!

Sorry I am at D*C this weekend, so no crafting time, but i'm almost done the large item. The rest will follow! I'll be shipping out close to the date, however, because there's one craft I can only do while I'm at home, and I don't go home till the 11th. The rest will be done ahead of time. ^.^

I'm so excited, I love uniqueness!  ;D 
I'm having a lot of fun putting together this package and i'm also having the 'I don't know if I want to stop crafting' experience!  I still need to find a few more supplies for one project, but everything is coming together nicely over all.  The large is about 1/2 done as well as the medium, but the small/extras are finished.  I'm taking advantage of the holiday to try to finish up the large.

Hmmm....I should get that gallery up.
After dinner I'll whip it up  ;D
I can't wait to see all the fall goodies!
You wouldn't believe how excited I am!  :D

time to get going on those medium and small items! i'm so excited about them

unfortunately the last 2 days were pretty craft-free, due to emergency surgery for my kitty--bladder stones.  luckily he's ok now, but very very sleepy and very undignified with his cone collar and big shaved belly

we're going to start calling him "2 plasma tvs" or "the remodelled basement" because he cost as much as either of those would have  :D

poor guy, but now i'll be staying home with him in the evenings, which means lots of time craft while he sleeps next to me


on a different note, awesome props to you folks who are done already!

Alright, so it was after breakfast, coffee, and some crafting.... :D

The Gallery can be found at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266929.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266929.0)

Post your goodies there when you get them.  ;D

P.S. I'm posting the link on the first page as well, for easy access.

Awww...shaved kitty. Mine just got fixed, so she has a little shaved tummy too. Very soft. lol. I'm sure your cat realizes its worth as a new basement, and will repay you with lots and lots of love...maybe.

Chicago temp started to drop slightly the last few days, but we also got hit with heavy rains from the last of hurrican gustav (sp?) so I'm not sure if the cooler temps is due to that?  We're at about 70 right now.  I notices the underside of a specific species of tree (though I don't know which one) is starting to change to yellow!

yay we got early fall here in seattle! (except for today, today was a little warm, but seattle standards that is lol) its been getting chilly but still a bit sunny out and smells like fall  ;D

I Love Seattle!!!  I stoped there for a few days after an Alaska cruse and totally fell in love with tht city. 
The Twilight series makes me love it even more  ::)



poor guy, but now i'll be staying home with him in the evenings, which means lots of time craft while he sleeps next to me




I hope he's up and about soon.  My man and I are adopting a cat next week, I'm so excited!

Oh yeah, fall is here in Las Vegas! It was a brisk 98 degrees all day! ;)

Guh, there really isn't a fall here. It goes "OMGHOT" to "bluhhh it's still hot" to "now it's hot AND windy" to "oh goody, it's hot and WET" and finally, in mid November, "holy crap it's cold!"

lol Anyway, on the crafting front, I've got a little progress on my large item. One medium and one small are done, but I think I'm going to add at least one more, if not two mediums.

Plus! Shhh, don't tell jadeye, but I'm making something for her wedding, if she wants to use it for that. :D

I had a little problem with one of my items, so I had to come up with a solution. That solution included doing a different project. I should still be able to send mine out by Monday though!

I just love how sometimes random craft things happen.  I was stuck on the couch this afternoon with a bad tummyache and had some things at hand and somehow i just came up with a small for the swap.  :)   Silly thing but it kept me from thinking too much about the stomach.  Heh.

Hi Everyone!

The days are ticking by fast to sendouts.
I hope everyone is wrapping up those goodies!

Since this is my first time organizing, I would love a flake-free swap.
I have gone through the replies, and notice a few that haven't posted in awhile.  That's not bad (I know you are crafting up a storm); I just want to check-in with y'all.

So to DropDeadSuzie, and crazychick149
How are y'all doing?  ;D 
If you get a chance, please post a reply or PM me. 
THANK YOU SO MUCH!  :-*


If you are respective partners of these fabulous craftsters and have heard from them recently, you too can post a reply or PM me.  And of course, THANK YOU TOO!  :-*

wow,congrats!  It's going to be a while for us, but I still get excited thinking about having little ones.

As for crafting I too am going to be cutting it close and I'm trying my hardest not to send late.  It's my second week of school and I've already been nailed by 4 projects due this week.  Granted I'm a photo major and don't have to worry about papers or math tests, but I'm already spending long hours in the studio and in photoshop  :-\  It's a very bittersweet experience continually being hit over the head with what I love.  But just wanted to post an update have the large and medium to finish but not too much work left, just need to find the time.

I completely understand a bit of lateness (my son's birthday is Saturday so I'm rushing to get that organized and swaps finished and packed...oh and let's not even mention school, I have an exam on Monday...and there is room parenting...PTA... meetings to attend and speak at...on and on I go :P...)

Anywho...
Just keep communicating to me and your partner, and all will be fine.  ;D

I too am finishing up projects....those finishing touches are a bugger.
I'm plan and hope to send on-time; that would be nice.
But I much rather send a well-finished project; so if craziness attacks then I may be sending on Monday...shouldn't happen..but, you know, life.  :D

AND CONGRATULATIONS CACARAE!

Oh oh, I just had to share a mailing story.

While I was at the mailing place sending off my partner's package (yay!), a gal was being helped next to me, and the worker asked her (it's a small-town feel neighborhood, nosey = friendly) "why are you sending a used rescue services jacket?" and she said "Because it belongs to the people who rescued me."

Eep!

Turns out she *fell down a mountain* and had to be rescued and it was quite the overnight ordeal, she couldn't be airlifted off the mountain, they had to carry her down by hand, she was in shock and they wrapped her up in their jackets, and one guy didn't get his back before she got shoved into the ambulance at the trailhead. So she was finally mailing it back to the rescue guy, now that she was up and about again.

Holy moly!  I gave her a big hug and said I was SO GLAD she was there mailing the jacket, and not lying somewhere hurt on the darn mountains!!

She said "It was all my fault - I wasn't prepared, I went off the trail, so be good when you go out to the woods this fall!"

So listen to her!  :)  Don't go out into the mountains to look at the fall colors without being prepared!  :) 

Whew.   And here I was thinking my week was bad with family emergencies and a darn fussy thing that blew up on me.  At least none of us fell down a mountain!!  ;D

Wow. And to think I was all set to type up a "poor me, I'm sick and having sent yet" post, and then I read that and wow! I'm pretty lucky to just have a nasty cold.
But anyway, I have one more thing to finish, and I meant to do it this morning and send off today, but I've felt so yucky all yesterday and today that I definitly slept on the couch for the entire day, waking up just as the PO closed...so I promise, I WILL be sending ASAP, I just wanted to make sure everything was perfect before sending a half-assed package, and now I've procrastinated too much. But I will send, by Wednesday morning at the VERY LATEST. I PROMISE!!

I'm back! Went from sunday night to sunday night without power. I was having severe computer withdrawl. Hurricane Ike winds hit kentucky-isn't that strange?
And I have to be at work bright and early tomorrow morning. So, tuesday is for putting stuff on the scanner, and boxing it up.
And doing laundry. And cooking-yay, food that's not from a box or can!
I got a wonderful package from williarl13! Patner, I love all my goodies! If you took pics, will you post them? Thanks!

And I have to be at work bright and early tomorrow morning. So, tuesday is for putting stuff on the scanner, and boxing it up.
And doing laundry. And cooking-yay, food that's not from a box or can!
I got a wonderful package from williarl13! Patner, I love all my goodies! If you took pics, will you post them? Thanks!

I'm thrilled you are back and safe & sound.

Dear members, participants, organizers, and partners,

Please bear with me for a few days.  My house was broken into Wednesday, September 24, and I have a lot to deal with at the moment.  All is well.  All that was taken was stuff, and no one was hurt so I am grateful.  I'm going to be back in full crafting swing soon because I think I need crafting therapy more than ever.

Sincerely,
pinkleo
