this one is so tempting, I love Dexter. I just found out that I am preggers and I dont know I can handle another swap, morning sickness plus the 3 other swaps I am in.

I am still deciding if I want in on this, it depends on if I get feedback from another swap in before the signups are over.  Dexter is one of me and my bf's favorite shows I bought him 2 of the dexter shirts.

I love the gallery pics from round one and want to sign up but am new to the swapping process. I am limiting myself to 3 swaps at a time for now. :) I hope to finish one before the deadline so that I can work on this one. I LOVE DEXTER!!!!!

Oh, as much as I love Dexter (both my little man and the show  ;D) I don't think I'll be able to join in this time. I'm 30 weeks pregnant at the moment and don't think I'll have the energy to join in.... Oh I'll have to see (never one to make a decision me! ::))

My questionnaire is complete, but I have to wait a few days to send it in. :( I start a new class tomorrow and its suppose to be horrid so I need to get a better idea of the class and professor before I commit.  But I will probably do the swap regardless because I love Dexter and I have been waiting on this swap for MONTHS! :)

I'm so excited to be in this swap and I'm itching for partner info already!  Congrats to all the pregnant ladies too.  Seems like there's a lot of pregnancies going on with the craftster folk right now.  :)

Is it possible for me to sign up as a pre-emptive angel? HAHAHAHAA...I had a rough patch 3 years ago *insert sigh and eyeroll* and didn't complete 2 swaps, so I am working to redeem myself hahaha...anyhooooo, if you need an angel, can I volunteer ahead of time? :D

Hmmm - still thinking about joining this swap.  I love Dexter - but not sure how it'll translate to actual useable crafts.  I don't want a bunch of scary bloody home decor!! 

Ohh - although it would be great for Halloween decorations.  Alright - I think I might have to sign up for this one then!

Oh this is so tempting! I am trying to keep swapping low-key... but this is hard to pass up. Well, my husband and I both love this show so maybe if he'd also like some Dexter goodies I will sign up ;)

Some Dexter wall art would be awesome and if I can keep my crafts small/light weight to save on postage that'd help. I will be thinking about this  :)

are we aloud to do swaps for significant others?? My fiance loves this show, I'd make all the ideas he had for someone and theyd mainly craft for him...are we aloud to do this? I am so tempted, I just got done with my first swap and he was a little disappointed he didnt get anything lol.

I am going to close sign-ups for this at 9:00pm (PST) on Monday 7/26.  Partners will be given later on that night.  I pretty much have everyone paired up if no one else signs up but if they do (which I hope they do) I can easily add people in and pair them up equally as great!  I am so excited about this!  Bought supplies and can't wait!!

I would love to do this swap but have a couple of others I have to finish up. I LOVE DEXTER!!!! If you have an odd number then message me and I will do it. Otherwise I will watch the progress and rewatch the series and join in next time. But if you do need me dont hesitate to let me know because then of course I would have to do it. :D

Had a long long night last night, my nephew spent the night but didn't have a bottle and was pissed, wouldn't take a sippy cup and just cried for hours no matter what we did.  Finally went to sleep at 5:45am and I followed shortly after then was up at 7:30am (not him but me) and off to school all day since 9am, I am so tired right now, still in class.  Will have partners no later than tomorrow morning.  Sorry about the delay!

Just ordered some supplies on etsy for this swap. It's a little bit more inspired by blood as opposed to being obviously Dexter, but I think my partner will love it regardless ;D Gonna work on another bloody inspired item after this weekend while i wait for my other supplies to get here. I think I'm going to end up making 1 large and two mediums for this swap. :)

I think that's been my thought on it because I bought supplies and they mostly came out to be centered around the blood aspects of the show. You'll see...youuuuu'll see!

I keep thinking of new ideas and it's been tough to narrow it down to the things that I have the supplies/time to do!  :)  Got my second item crafted this afternoon and I think I want to make a duplicate for myself.  Hehe.

I have 4 ideas that I intend on running with! I would have liked to have begun crafting by now, but school is crazy. Thank goodness this class is over Thursday night! I bought a few supplies cause I'm going to have to experiment on a few different things, but hopefully it will come out well!  I can't wait to finally begin, the longer i wait, the more ideas i'm thinking of! haha :)

How many items are  you sending is there a limit or is it okay to send what you want to send.

As long as it adds up to 6 points and is not more than four smalls. 
There are many combinations:
2 larges
1 large and 3 smalls
1 large, 1 medium and 1 small
3 mediums
2 mediums and 2 smalls
1 medium and 4 smalls

If you want to do more, talk with your partner and see if she agrees.

I was totally on a roll until this week when work happened!  hehe.  Oh well, I have a plan to finish up my last bit tomorrow night.  I think it'll be cute - hoping my partner agrees!  :)

I'm gonna love it, I am sure of it!!

I have two items fully completed and that one thing is still in the bathroom (guest bathroom so not used often) waiting for me to get to it, I will eventually but I start back at work tomorrow after the whole summer off, let's see how this transition goes!  I will be sending at deadline because that is also payday!

I'm nearly finished with the two items i started. I originally thought that I was making a large and a medium, but honestly both are taking me more than 3 hours. But for some reason, I feel bad about it. I feel odd shipping only two items, even if they took the time and cost the amount that would categorize them as larges. I'm thinking of doing a couple of smalls that I wasn't planning on to throw in, I'm just not entirely sure what those are just yet. :/

I think we're both in the same boat, kind of. We'll see. I'm sure I'll adore it...the excitement is killing me! :D

Eep! I've got two almost-but-not-quite-finished projects and one barely started. I am hoping to have a fourth project, but I'm not sure if I'll make the deadline if I add that one! I know what I'll be doing all week-crafting! ;)

So my package has been delivered but my partner won't be back at work until Wednesday :(  I got worried because DC said "missent" but then it was delivered, that made me nervous though.  I wonder where it went instead of to her?  Crazy stuff!

I was thinking the same thing!  Actually, I was happy it wasn't international because there is something in there that would be hard to explain on a customs form LOL!!!

Dropping by to check in.  I'm sure the mail room has it for me at work - I've noticed the USPS site tends to say weird things like that sometimes.  Can't wait to get to work on Wednesday and see what's in it!

Here is the frame and a t-shirt Jamie made for me. I love them both and are my favorites. My camera phone just does not like taking pictures so these were the only ones that came out decent.




Not pictured are the wonderful bookmarks that I simply love, a yellow crime scene t-shirt, and the awesome scarves.
Thanks again for a great package.
