Post by: Lo{ve} on December 28, 2009 05:32:25 PM
last time i could barely squeeze out my 100 facts. but then the next day i was like "OH! i should have put ____ on there!" and then the day after that it was "AHH! how could i have forgotten ____!"

so i ended up sending my parter a list of an extra 30 facts or so that'd i'd thought up while waiting for partners.

it's pretty easy once you get to thinking about it  :D

I'm really kind of hoping that since this is round 2 that there's a round 3 in March or April.  *crosses fingers*  I have an insane amount of work to do between now and March 31 when I mail off my portfolio.  If there's a round 3 or 4 I'll be all for it!  And I think I'm going to have my list of 100 things ready to go before then too.  Just save it on the computer so I can copy and paste!  ;D  Have fun everyone!

I want to join but I too have hit a fact wall, and on number 40!  I'm hoping this is because it's late and I'm tired and not because I'm that boring.  I'll sleep on it and see what I come up with tomorrow.

So; are you all coming up with 100 facts that will actually help the person crafting for you decide what to make or just 100 random facts.  I've been trying to only include things that would actually help my potential partner and that's pretty difficult.  Maybe I'm over thinking this?

i just did completely random facts. you'd be surprised how people will interpret things! every thing about you, makes you you. so any little fact could end up being helpful to your partner! some of mine i know will do no help for this, but sometimes just rambling facts onto your lists helps you think of some awesome things to write down!

I've been working on my list since last night, this will definitely be a fun swap- it's already fun coming up with facts! 

More helpful sources: google "100 things about me" and it will bring up people's blogs where they've done the very same thing.  Reading through their's has sparked some thoughts for myself  ;)  Might help ya'll too!

I sent in my questionaire last night! I thought I'd have trouble getting to 100 but I managed it pretty easily and didn't get stumped till I got to the 100th fact. I wanted it to be a good one.

I hope my list makes sense!

So excited :)

I'm kinda flip-flopping on signing up for this swap; I think I'm going to wait until school starts next week to see how heavy the course load will be before deciding. I'm still working on my 100 facts in the meantime though.

I was so intrigued by my list I added a project for the 50 project for the year based on the list, and I found fact 101 for me.... My fave artist is Frida Kahlo!  Going to add that to the word document and the journal of me!  Glad I signed up for this one.  Looking forward to partners!  ;D

Working on my list right now. Thank you to whoever suggested googling "100 things about me" - that was very helpful. I think this list is going to be great to have for swaps in the future.

Trying to come up with a list remindedme of "She's Everything" by Brad Paisley  :D

I already have 2 great ideas that could be used for pretty much everyone. Submitting soon!!

Amen to that.   I never think much about Google until my computer's down, then I realize how much I use it.  I wish I had a dollar for every time I've said, " I'll just google it".

I'm so in....but this is so hard lol....once I get going I know it will flood the page, I just can't seem to concentrate...gah

and I am usually crazy about making lists...I have a "list of things that make me happy" I made about 8 years ago, about 4 pages long I just have to dig it out, I'm sure that will help even though it's out dated, I am still very much the same =0p

Ha, I had a Happy List that I went to also!  My happy list never made it quite as long as I had remembered it being though, so it wasn't much help, lol

sorry guys, i haven't been letting people know that they were accepted.  i thought i posted in here that i was just going to list participants on the front page until i dealt with partners, but i guess it must not have posted.  my internet is being a little bit finicky lately.


i'm still deciding whether or not to participate...

I wish I had thought of that before I sent my list in.  It would have been very interesting indeed to see what my hubby of 29 years would have come up with.  I may ask him to come up with a few extra and see what he says, that's just too good to pass up.

to be perfectly honest, this is my first swap on craftster that i'm organizing (although i've done this sort of thing on other websites) and i'm not completely sure what a coorganizer does!

i am indeed joining in on the fun.  reading through all of the lists just gave me so many ideas for crafts that i just couldn't help myself.

Whoever ends up being my partner (and general shout out):

OK, so NO PRESSURE, I'm just "getting the word out" like in The Tightwad Gazette and hoping it'll bear fruit more sooner than later if I tap enough sources.  If you have any extras you can spare (or find like 25cent treasures at your local thrift store), I NEED (seriously) any of the following anyone can funnel my way.  I'm letting all my swap partners know on the off chance something good'll happen.  Please, if it is NO BURDEN to you, I am actively needing/seeking free items of the following:

bread pans for baking homemade bread
muffin pans
ice cube trays

Again, no pressure.  Just hoping that enough little birdies whisper into enough ears, eventually someone'll say, "Oh yeah, I've got 3 of those.  I'll add one into your box."  *shrugs*  Can't hurt to try, right?  But, again, please do NOT go out of your way or let this be a financial outlay on your part.



Didn't know if this would influence partnering, but I figured it was worth throwing out there.

Crumbs....I put myself on a self-imposed swap hiatus until late Jan because I am doing the medieval faire where I live.  It's the 16th and 17th and 23rd and 24th...I will not have enough time between doing that and trying to craft for this one with sendouts on 2/10...that really only gives me less than 20 days to create stuff :(  Damn it...and I really had a great time doing this one the last round!  I as well am hoping for round 3 in the next couple months.  Have fun everyone!

I googled "100 facts about me" to see some people who had done the same thing on their blogs.

I also did groupings of things that lead into more and more facts.  Like:
1. I like movies.
2. My favourite movies are romantic comedies.
3. My favourite romcom actress is Sandra Bullock. etc.

I had some of the same concerns with my list, When I looked over it I was stumped as to how it could be used to make things, but then I stopped thinking of the facts as things to make, and just thought on the facts, when you read the list a few times it is quite easy to come up with things to make :)

Google'ing other peoples lists is a great idea too, you don't have to use what they say on your list, but it might give you some ideas of related things :)

Uh-oh, I think I put "fast food disgusts me" on my list.  But I could eat Chinese/Japanese/Thai two meals a day for the rest of my life.  I think I'm personally responsible for keeping one of our local Chinese restaurants in business in this bad economy.


As far as crafting from the list, you can kind of model some facts off the standard swap questionnaire.  Like I put, I collect ... and then listed my extensive list of things I collect.  My partner could get plenty to work with off that one fact.  A lot of questionnaires tell us to list our 5 favorite things,  that's also a great fact about yourself that leads to easy crafting.  Of course; the fun will be trying to pull great crafts out of some of the more random facts listed.  I just can't wait to get my partner and her (well, I assume "her") list.

Post by: Onyxnox on January 07, 2010 04:48:10 AM
I just put random facts too - I figure just let my partner read and his/her muse will strike them with something creative inspired by how they interpret the list. 

Maybe, for example, like if you did put that you love Chinese/Japanese/Thai - mini sushi from polyclay, decorated chopsticks, chopstick hairsticks, a lunchbag made from sushi fabric, candy sushi, homemade chinese takeout containers to package other goodies in.  Decorated rice bowls and chinese soup spoons.  Candles made from Chinese/Japanese tea cups, etc.  I have a couple of patterns for beaded sushi I have on my to do list :D 

Like others, I put my list on my blog too, and I think I am up to 110 now because I have slowly added to it since I sent it in

yeah, I put mine up as a note on facebook because I was so happy with it.  I think I may have to add to mine there as well. 

So, for my future partner, feel free to read on facebook too so you can see if I added anything else that you'd like to work off of  ;)

It should be a pretty low stress swap, and I'm sure since there is no definite of what to make you could work it so that you use what you have in your stash already :)

I didn't put it on my list either, but it is totally true for me too. A food related item on my list that will likely inspire n crafts, but had to be included because it is very much a part of me is my insatiable desire for Coca cola classic. A food related item that I hope WILL inspire this swap is my love of gummy candy  ;D

Given that 1000 Island Dressing reminds me something that oozes from diseased orifices, no way I have any interest whatsoever in eating a Big Mac.

Oh, and BTW, Roll Tide!   *tries to breathe and get blood pressure down during halftime*

I used to work at a Burger King.  It was YEARS before I could eat a Whopper again, I was so traumatized.....

I feel your pain.  I worked at a Greek fastfood joint in college.  To this day, I can't handle the sight, smell, or taste of feta cheese.  *shudders*

i did not put this on my list but i just thought it while out getting some food! i have never had a big mac!

I didn't put it on my list either, but it is totally true for me too. A food related item on my list that will likely inspire n crafts, but had to be included because it is very much a part of me is my insatiable desire for Coca cola classic. A food related item that I hope WILL inspire this swap is my love of gummy candy  ;D

Oh wow, I can't even believe that I left out the fact that I have been a Coca cola addict since I was three years old.  I really wouldn't want Coke related crafts though, so I guess it doesn't matter.

Hey guys, Just a heads up, as you're aware jaders is out of town at the moment, but the last day to sign up has been brought forward a few days so if you're interested in joining now would be the time.!

Google those lists, ask friends/family for advice and get your 100 facts in!

There sure is a lot of sushi going around here. I personally can't use a fork to save my life but chopsticks are right up my alley :D


Also, as far as

I don't know whether any of my 100 things lead to logical crafts. Most of them are very random. Doing the list late at night, and very caffeine fuelled, probably didn't help! Ah well!
I'm really excited to read my partners list too - can't wait to get started!!
I think that's what makes it fun!

My 100 facts are very random too, and I don't know if it will be easy to craft something linked with them. I did it in the evening and I realize that I could have put some other facts that would have been easier for my future partner :S

I agree. My list was completely random and created over 3 days. I figure that it is part of the challenge and fun to look at a bunch of random factoids of someone you don't know in order to get crafting ideas!

I can't wait to start!

i'm going to officially close the swap in about three hours.  we're at an odd number of partners right now, and hopefully we'll get another person in, otherwise a few people will have to be in a three way swap.

i did my best to match up people who have a few similarities, but things like allergies and the like took priority.  if you have any questions about partners, message me.  otherwise, messages about sending, receiving and the like can be sent to either me or LilyDay depending on which group you are in.

i hope you all enjoy getting to know your partners!

I think there may be a lot of spoiling going on here; after all, 5 points for 100 facts?  My partners list is just too great to narrow it down to 5 points worth of goodies.  Of course; life must cooperate and allow the spoilage that I'm intending.  Just in case I don't have the time I'm hoping for, I'm figuring out how to combine a few things into one craft.  This is definitely one of my favorite swaps ever.

I totally agree. I have 2 very ambitious idea - only one of which will make the final cut, at least I'm hoping I can get one to pan out. I started last night, so we'll see . . .

I had to reject a few things from my list because shipping would be iffy on them - Canada Post hates me, and I don't want to send peanut what could ultimately end up being a booby trap box of broken glass.  I'm going to try to stuff everything into one of those large national Expresspost padded envelopes since it ships in a couple of days for not too bad a price.  I wish we had flat rate boxes of varying sizes like in the US - that would give me so many more options for crafting and shipping things.

I've got things kind of organized on paper, but it will almost certainly be next Friday before I start actually crafting for this swap.  I don't intend to send on the actual send-out date, but it will probably be close because I want to do some spoiling.

I am totally disappointed in some of my crafting.  Not just for this swap - just crafting in general - the shrink plastic at DeSerres sucks - it is Grafix brand and it shrinks unevenly, doesn't shrink flat without being held down, and is more fragile than the other brands I have tried.  Also, one of my snowflake cutting dies broke - virtually brand new and it broke :C

Just a bad, cruddy crafting day :C

At least I got some blueberry banana muffins and sweet potato bread made.

Yum, sweet potato bread.  That sounds wonderful.  Want to share the recipe?  ( Oh, and I'm very sorry you've had a crummy crafting day).


Title: Re: 100 Facts About Me Swap Round 2 (Signups 12/28/09 - 01/08/10; sendout 02/10/10)
Post by: Onyxnox on January 15, 2010 05:20:53 PM
No problem - it is one of my favourite bread recipes.  It can be sweet with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, or more spicy by adding paprika, or some kind of chili powder/hot pepper powder.


Savoury Sweet Potato Bread
1 cup [extra large: 1 1/3 cups] mashed, canned sweet potatoes or yams (drained, reserve liquid)
1/2 cup [extra large: 3/4 cup] reserved liquid from sweet potatoes or yams
2 tbsp [extra large: 3 tbsp] vegetable oil, margarine or butter
3/4 tsp [extra large: 1 tsp] salt
1 tbsp [extra large: 2 tbsp] sugar
3 cups [extra large: 4 cups] white flour(*)
1/4 tsp [extra large: 1/2 tsp] pepper, nutmeg or dried chili peppers
1 1/4 tsp [extra large: 1 1/2 tsp] bread-machine or instant yeast

(* In Canada use all-purpose or bread flour; in the United States use bread flour)
1. Add all ingredients to machine according to manufacturer's directions. Select basic white cycle. VARIATION: Clover Leaf Rolls Select dough cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough to lightly floured surface, cover, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut dough into 12 or 16 pieces; shape each into a smooth ball and place in greased muffin tins. Cover with clean tea towel and let rise in warm place for about 30 minutes or until double in size. Bake at 375 deg F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove rolls from pans and serve warm or leave to cool on racks.

Notes:  I did not use the amounts for the xtra large loaf, I have a 2 lb horizontal bread machine, and the first set of ingredients made a loaf that rose very nicely above the pan.  I added both black pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon to the loaf.  It gave a very subtle flavour.  I may add more pepper and nutmeg when making it in the future for stew or a casserole.  I also made it with the egg - the texture was very nice and fluffy.  Would make excellent rolls for a traditional dinner like at Thanksgiving, with a nice glossy glaze.  Also, I did not use canned sweet potatoes, I used roasted mashed, so used water for the liquid.  For a softer, more tender loaf, I used 1 egg, beaten, and enough liquid to make up to the required amount of liquid.  You could use milk too, and tbsp or two of gluten powder for more rise.

the sweet version would make a decent bread pudding, and either would make for a neat stuffing too.

Post by: gamemom42 on January 18, 2010 07:34:44 PM
Onyxnox, thanks so much for the recipe.   I will definitely use fresh mashed sweet potatoes.  Canned ones always have a strange extra taste that I can't quite identify.  

Okay, I have to ask.  Why do you use bread flour in United States but either all-purpose or bread flour in Canada?  Maybe it's obvious but I just don't get that.

Have you ever tried this recipe with nuts in it?  I'm thinking if you used just the nutmeg and then added pecans that might be good.  

I can't wait to try this.  

Mellisa!  That's exciting!  Hmmm.... conflict in the facts.  Must have been a pin-up or maybe something plaid?  Anyway, I still haven't started crafting for you but I've got a plan and most of the supplies I'll need so no worries about the deadline.

Post by: Onyxnox on January 18, 2010 11:15:08 PM
It is a harder type of wheat used in Canada that has more gluten, and a softer, less glutenous flour in the States.  You can buy wheat gluten and add that to your bread recipes too, and that will help you get a nice rise out of them.  I tend to add a tbsp or two of wheat gluten to almost all my breads now and it gives them great volume. 

I have never tried it with nuts, but I can see that being something neat to try.

If you want to send early that's fine, but keep in mind that I'll be sending closer to the deadline.  If that's okay with you, send those goodies just as soon as you want to!

I'm afraid I'm going to be quiet on here for a while, as my laptop rather spectacularly bit the dust two days ago, and my only internet access is at work at lunchtime, so I won't be able to keep up with this thread as much. Rest assured I'm still crafting away!!

I attempted both my medium and small items at the weekend, and they both barely got off the ground, so I'm taking a new approach with them, and will hopefully be able to finish them this weekend instead. I just need to get more supplies!!

I took a look at my list and i have 10 crafted items on my list that I will be trying.  I know that a couple will turn out, but I am experimenting with some new techniques - so we'll see how that goes.  If everything turns out - well, I guess my partner may be spoiled a bit :D

But i went shopping today after work and picked up most/all of the extra supplies i needed for this swap (and lots of stuff for just me!)  I should be knocking a few things off my list this week.  It's looking good for me so far :D

I am slightly cursed - it sems like everything I touch has either gone completely awry or has some minor mistake.  However, persistance seems to be working, because I have at least started every project on my list, fully done about 3, and near done the big one.

I just seem to be missing tools. Everythime that I sit down to craft, I realize I am missing something else. We're low on gas and money, so I can't go into town until this evening when we already have other things to take care of, so I'm stuck until later today. Hopefully though, I'll have my biggest project finished today and I'll be very motivated from there.

I haven't made much more progress since last time I posted, I've fleshed out all my ideas, and pretty much finished a small, which is a very cute small if I don't say so myself haha. :)

I'm looking forward to emerri getting this package, I'm pretty sure she'll love it :)

Well, I had plans to get a couple of things finished today, however I ended up watching Stargate: SG-1 all day instead.  :-\

One more quick supply run and I should be able to finish the last things up this week.  Might be sending early!

I was very productive today and finished three items for the Labyrinth swap!  I've been so stuck on that one.  My goal is to mail that swap on Monday, make my item for the OTT swap Monday and Tuesday ( and maybe Wednesday) and get really serious on this one Thursday the 28th.  I should be fine for send outs because I know what I'm making and have the supplies waiting for me.

Gah! I got finished painting this really really cool tote bag (that I was totally proud of) and when I looked at it this morning I realized I forgot to put paper between the sides, so the whole thing bled through to the back and stuck the bag closed. Guess I'll be cutting that up and turning it into something else. I was so mad this morning!  >:(

Ugh, I hate when that happens, I've done it a few times... Would it be possible to cut the front section keeping as much of the fabric as possible to then resew it into a bag? Maybe just slightly smaller? I'm sure the back section should pull off ok?

I thought about that. But I think I'm just gonna cut out around it, frame it, and add it in there as an extra.

HAHA!  I'm in pretty much the exact same boat today!  We were at a wedding last night and are recovering today and have also been watching Stargate SG-1 all day (instead of crafting). 

I think I might bring out the _____ that I've been working on for about a week here and there and _______ that while I watch.  I love portable crafts  ;)

....and i am done!!!!

I will mail it off early next week!

HOLY COW!!!!  :o  Woo-hoo, I'm excited!  :D

*sigh*  Looks like Sat.'s trip to the city for supplies may get called on account of weather.  Snow, sleet, whathaveyou, I'm fine with.  But, when they start talking ice, wind, and power outages, I twitch.  After last year's ice storm, it's easy to get scared.  Just playing it by ear.

OK, one craft is as sad and dismal failure.  I tried it three different ways and it did not work.  So I have mentally reworked it and hopefully can do it later this week and ship within the week or so.

Meh... I didn't think out my plans to the point of fitting them into a box. So... I'm not going to do the one medium I have left (as what I was thinking) and I'm now trying to think of less bulky medium/large to add. :D Oh well, there's still plenty of time. It's amazing how fast a box can fill up.

But since the Canada swap, I found out about the expresspost prepaid packs, which will deliver in one or two days for a set price.  All I have to worry about is keeping it contained to the pack.

In news related to this... I have some extras, a large plotted, and a small actually done! Don't worry, it's all coming together fantastically! (I think it's a word, if not... It is now.)

Wow, I feel like I'm so far behind!

I'm about halfway done two mediums (one of which is closer to a large due to the ridiculous amount of time I'm spending on it) and a small, but I still have another two mediums and a small left to do!
The upside is that I have the supplies for mostly everything, and should get some major crafting done this weekend if I don't get too distracted.


In other news, the gallery is now up as we've had our first sender!

I'm still not really close to done either, I have been super lazy in the evenings because I've started working out for the past few weeks, so once I'm finished with that I'm pretty much done with everything, lol.  Cleaning has been getting neglected more than usual too.  But, the weekends are made for crafting, and that's just what I'll do, one of these days these hands are gonna craft all over you... ok that didn't make much since but it flowed and it's Friday and I'm just kind of giddy because it's been a crappy work-week and yeah, I think I'm done making a fool of myself now, happy Friday everyone!!!!  ;)

Sorry, nostephot, but tomorrow's drive down to Memphis to get your Elvis stuff is not gonna happen. :(

OK, this is a new one for me.  My face is bleeding!  I got cut by ice in the wind!  It sliced me just above where my scarf covers.  So weird!  The wind is BLOWING the snow and pieces of sharp ice. 

Watch the Weather Channel.  When you see Adam Berg reporting from Blytheville, AR, that's us.  Or, go to http://www.weather.com, click to watch the video labelled "Live:  Sleet, snow, ice."
They are set up on the access road by a cotton field at the exit 67 ramp off of I55 by the Walmart a little less than 2 miles from me.  Cracks me up to no end that we are national news.  LOLOLOL

When we look outside, all we see is WHITE.  Very narrow visibility.  I wonder if this is what blizzard snow looks like for the people up north?  It's thick like a heavy thunderstorm's rain, and it's blowing sideways in the wind.  Weird.  I bet people in places like MT and Alberta are laughing at us, but this is just plain weird for this part of the country.

It took over 30 minutes to get my car usable.  It was encased in a layer of ice like the candy shell of an M&M.  Ugh!

I had to cut my errand running short and pick up my son from his playdate early because it was becoming too dangerous to drive because of the low visibility. 

My mom said she saw our mayor on the national news.  I told her, "Mama, Barrett's gonna get his face on the news as much as he can, now, because he just announced a Senate run."  LOLOL

Hope we keep power overnight.  Questionable. 

We are Southerners!  We're not supposed to have winter weather like this!  LOLOL  We are definitely winter wimps. 

It's pretty to watch from the window, but it sucks to be outside in it.  Freakin stings!

Looking through my partner's list, I had a sudden urge to make something else - so I will try to get parts of that done during my break at work the next few nights so it can be done this week.  I hope it fits into the bag - if not, I'm still good.  Actually, a bit overboard....

I'm also in the process of moving, so I picked a really smart time to be in a swap  ::)

Lucky emerri is so easy to craft for it's not going to be hard

I finished my large last night!  I was so excited to finally be done with it.  :)  So now I have a large, 2 smalls, and some extras.  I'm 90% done with the other extra (which time-wise ended up being large too).  I'm planning on finishing it up today and possibly sending tommorrow if I end up getting out before the post office closes.

I finished a large over the weekend too and dh was totally siked for me because it's pretty cool  :) I don't know much about this particular theme I based it on, so I can only hope that it all makes sense, but DH & I agree that if it doesn't, it still just looks really cool!  :D

The rest of the stuff I will definitely (almost definitely, lol) finish by next Monday.

Only my large is finished  :-\ It took longer than expected, but I love the finished product. I also made something that has nothing to do with my partner's list or Wist, but I was trying out something new and loved it. I'm still not sure if I am sending it. I hate not knowing for certain that someone would like something!!

I've been trying to figure out how to combine several facts into some of my crafts for melissa! and I came up with one that I'm really excited about.  It combines at least 3 of her facts along with one that I'm assuming she likes based on the ones she listed.  I got the first coat of paint on it tonight. 

I finished a small.  Really its too small to be a small so I intend to make a couple more versions and turn it into a set. 

I also finally picked out the final patterns for what will probably be the large and will get started on that tomorrow. 

After I completely finish these three projects, I'll begin on the spoilage part of the package!

I love this swap and how open to interpretation it is.

I'm gonna be crafting like crazy tonight and over the weekend!  We are going to Monster Jam (monster truck show) on Saturday night which will consume my entire evening night so I will have to keep busy starting the minute I get done with my work out after work tonight!  I might even do some low down DIRTY crafting (if I don't shower between workout and running to the craft room, I'll be stinky!)

gah!  i'm the organizer and i somehow managed to convince myself that sendouts were the 15th!!

oh well.  i finally finished my large today (it was supposed to be a medium, but close to 10 hours later i'm calling it a large!) plus i finished a medium for my other partner.

i also picked up my last few supplies that i needed and couldn't find the one thing that i really wanted to get.  argh.  i'm just going to have to figure it out.

so far... my progress...

amc-
large - done
medium - halfish done
extras - i thought i was half done, but i'm definitely starting over

TrickyMcVomit
medium - done
medium - almost done...
small - pieces cut out, just needs to be assembled


i feel better looking at it from that perspective...

jaders:  I wouldn't be a bit upset if you wanted to change the send out date to the 15th.  I can be finished by the 10th, but I could do a couple more of the things I want to for my partner if I had until the 15th.... just saying ;)

I wouldn't have an issue with it either..... I'm relativley on track, but I'm moving and need to be all packed and moved and the entire very large 4 bedroom house cleaned top to bottom by the 13th, so an extra few days would be great, just in case :)

I am 100% done, it is seriously STUFFED into the package and reinforced with packing tape, and ready to go out the door.  I have some mandatory computer training at work this morning (grrrrr - hate when they do this and I lose a day off), but after that is done, I am dropping it off at the PO.

Is it wrong to want to keep one of the items you made???  Oh well, it is packed away in there and there is no way I am opening that baby up.

I am hoping to get snowed in tomorrow so I can finish up...

A friend told me she was coming to stay for a visit and I spent a lot of time cleaning my trashy house...and she didn't come. I know what i'm doing, I just need the time to sit and do it. Lets hope tomorrow is that day. I really don't want to go to work snow or no.

I sent my package, so it doesn't matter to me if people need a bit more time.

I hope it goes through OK - the post office employee took offense to how stuffed my package was and told me that next time they would not accept it like that.  But the lady at my local PO said there were no rules and I could stuff it as much as I needed :C

It would be a big relief to me to have sendouts postponed because I'm behind on everything because of a back injury, and the ice and snow limiting my ability to get to the city.

melissa! mentioned it earlier, but the 15th is a holiday in the states so no postal service.  The extension would have to be til the 16th.  And of course I love the idea.

Unfortunately I may be sending a bit late. I have a paper due Friday and a paper due Monday. On the very unlikely chance I get a snow day tomorrow (my university has a history of NOT canceling classes, even during ice storms and multiple inches of snow), I will get a chance to craft. We have three inches already, it's suppposed to snow overnight, the snow that melted this morning has become ice, all the satellite campuses have been closed (typical), it is very unlikely that we will get a snow day unless individual teachers cancel classes.

Oh, I'm sure even if every other district near by was canceled, they still would have classes. In fact, I'm sure that will be the case tomorrow. I'm pretty sure the high schools/elementary schools here are closed tomorrow, all of the satellite campuses are closed, including one that is only about 29 miles away. Walking home from my night class I had to be super careful with the ice/dense snow, even having to walk in the grass at some parts, the sidewalks were so slick. The roads and sidewalks are solid white. Especially with the sidewalks, unless you know where they are supposed to be, you would be completely lost. I still don't think they will cancel.

  I intend to use the extension to keep crafting for melissa! ( one of the most fun partners I've ever crafted for)  and will send on the 16th (since post office is closed on the 15th).

melissa!:  I kind of got stuck on one of your facts.  I didn't even realize it until I looked at my growing pile of things for you.  It's just such an easy, happy fact to get stuck on!  I'm branching out now though so there will definitely be variety in your package.

I am having catastrophic home computer problems and am offline indefinitely.  I'm sending this from the library.  I will be online from friends' houses and library every day or 2 for a few minutes, but assume extremely unsteady communication and near posting invisibility from me for an unknown length of time.  Please be PATIENT if you PM or email.  I will PM DC#'s as I send on swaps, but there may be a day or 2's lag between sending and posting, esp. if the library closes due to winter weather.

ETA:  OK, on for a few minutes.  Looks like the cosmos has cut me some slack, and the problems are fixable.  Nothing's fried.  But, a power outage and brown-bright-brown-bright confused the *#)&$)(@$& out of my modem and how my computer talks with my modem.  Wiped out some stuff.  Fixable.  Just have to get my blood pressure down and patience up.   ;) 

Hopefully back to normal after putting in some time on it tonight.

Thanks for the good thoughts.  Those of y'all who know me know how much I hate where I am and how dependent I am on the internet for contact with the outside world.  For me, internet access is, literally, a mental health tool.

I was all kinds of mad that is was 80+ degrees today. Pfft! We don't get much winter around here so when I expect cool temps I get mad at the sunny weather.

Oh, I so understand!  I get angry too... though I'm always angry at our heat.  I can't complain lately though, it's been pretty darn chilly and i lurve it!!!!

I wish it was warmer than 20 out... >.<
I'm so sick of snow. I'm stuck in my house. Again. Third or fourth time in less than two weeks. How ridiculous is this! Augh!
Plus, since it's so cold, anything that started to melt two days ago, is freaking ice! Augh. It's a death trap out right now. >.<

Hello everybody :)

Unfortunately I couldn't send my package today, it is ready to be send but I couldn't go to the post office :(

My mother is actually at the hospital with a severe pneumonia and I have to keep my 2 little sisters, and with the snow it was difficult for me to go out. Tomorrow my dad is here the entire afternoon so I will be able to go to the post office.

I'm really sorry  :-\

I'll post a message tomorrow after my passage to the post office.

amylili:  I'm sorry to hear that your mom is sick.  I hope she recovers quickly.


I sent my package a little while ago.  Boy, the post office is slammed today after being closed yesterday for Presidents day.

I didn't get to send out today. I had planned on finishing up my last project last night but I was sick yesterday and thought it not wise to craft something while sick to send to someone else. lol. I'm feeling better today but I have a night class! Ah! I'm going to try to finish up as soon as I can so I can send out to crazyda79!

a reminder to everyone for the zillionth time :

PM ME WHEN YOU SEND OR RECEIVE.
as well, if you are sending late, PM ME.


edited to sound a little less... snarky.  there was a member of this swap who was greatly offended by this post, and i'd like to apologize.

I got snowed in at my [email protected] house... Urgh! Third time in less than 2 weeks. And they won't clean my roads! I'm going to try and get out to send tomorrow... But seriously, it may be suicide.

Sounds like here in Philadelphia! They just plowed my street for the first time last night...snow that has been piling up since last friday!

I sent today, and as requested by Jaders, I took pics of the stuff I sent...When all is well and received, pics will be posted...The gallery looks great you guys, I loved this swap =0)

NO - Since Canada Post hates me, I was afraid if I tried, they would lose it or smash it on me!  I will go and try again tomorrow :D

I got mine tonight, after a bit of further confirmation that Canada Post hates me (a bit of arguing over ID)....  I will take pics as soon as I find my memory card tomorrow, but Peanut sent a really great package and I do love it :D
