Just let your partner know so they can take pictures before they send out your package. That way they can post pictures for you if they need to.

I have two smalls done I had to redo one based on my wife and children opinion on the "look" of the monster in question.  My medium is in the works, I am just missing one piece, and of course it is the one piece I need in order to even begin on the project... Darn that means I have to take the wife to the craft store.

I would go by myself, but then my wife would kill me if she knew I went without her.

That will be on the morrow.

I started this afternoon and guess what? I'm finished! I hardly want to let even one single thing go, I'm loving it all so much. And I know I'd better hide this stuff from the kids or we'll have a battle to keep them on our hands. The only consolation for them is that there's something on it's way to them too, it's all I hear about these days "Wonder what it's gonna be mom. Wonder what it is. When's it gonna get here? What do you think it will be?" Too fun!
Now I'm kinda bummed that I'm all done. Oh well, I can always make more for friends and family, right? :D
I'll be sending off as soon as I can which will be next weekend.
Wow, you're good!!! My kids want to keep what I've made too. I truly hope your kids like what I'm sending. I would really, really hate to let them down. I was going to finish everything yesterday but we had a family emergency which pushed everything back a couple days. If all goes well, I should finish up tomorrow and send by Thursday at the latest. ;D

My big item, I worked on for what seemed to be months, just didn't look the way I wanted it to, let down!
Thankfully enough, inspiration struck sometime during a meeting that I should have been paying attention to instead I was crafting in my mind...so my crafting mojo was off and running and I am fairly sure I agreed to head a committee of something really important and I can't tell you what that is...I have my priorities !

I am almost done (just final touches). I had my left hand injured and had to run around for doctors and other duties + this obviously wasn't a bonus for crafting too. Luckily enough it's getting better (or I'm just getting used to the weird feeling) and I could finish most of necessary things in time. So I'm just reporting in that I'm not lost. ^_^

OK So i have finished crafting last week, but I did not have time to run by the post office before I had to hop on a plane across the country.  So my plane lands at 3 tomorrow in Vegas which gives me 3 hours to get home, package up my items, and then run to the post ffice before it closes because I am back on a plane again across the country Monday morning.
Wish me luck.

I left one thing until the last minute because I'm a procrastinator.  Was going to finish it on my day off yesterday. Well, I lost power all day yesterday because of the horrendous storms we had here in Michigan.  It made my sewing machine a paperweight of ultimate proportions.  I will finish tonight though and mail tomorrow for sure. I can't wait for my partner to receive!

Today is the send by date. Please let me know if you are going to be late. Don't forget to mail me your delivery confirmation number.

I've updated everyone's status on the front page. Let me know if I missed something. I did it while my 2 year old was screaming at me and hating me for taking his train away.

I'll try to leave feedback for the ones that have sent and received tomorrow.

So after visiting my sister in the hospital for 3 weeks I have finally gotten home to receive and post pictures! Since my partner is MIA I'm going to post what I sent her first.

She asked for things that were wearable and she liked zombies and vampires, so I made these brain earrings and a zombie hello kitty bookmark!


I also made a bat head-bow and crocheted a wrist cuff. That one isn't really monsters but I threw it in extra.


My partner loved Lolita so I made her some cute little monster styled top hats out of felt! Ones a vampire one, and one is like frankenstien!


I also made this monster bag.


Vampire teeth made of fuse beads, and a coffee mug that says "When other little girls wanted to grow up to be dancers, I always kind of wanted to grow up to be a vampire."


My thing is papercrafts, and even though she said she didn't have room or want decorations I threw in a couple.

Now for the stuff she sent me!

this very warm felt skele-monkey hat! I have the skelekitty purse. <3 And some horns. I kind of figured out how to put them on, but can't make them stay.


A magic wand and a thank you card! Also a neat bottle of salt to keep the demons away.


some zombie finger puppets, and rings.


And finally this gothic lolita style skirt with blood and cigarette burns!
