Ack- I'm in two large swaps and one giant swap right now.  :'(  :'(  :'(

Okay... I'll make a deal with myself.
If I can get most of the "Craft My Pet" packages done during the long weekend, I'll let myself sign up for this.

That's fair, right?

Because I really do NEED some more kitschy goodness...

so far.  i have sorted about 4 of the partner and i have a potential plan which could go two ways just waiting on some folks to get back to me. Its all good though. I am hoping to have partners sorted by today.

I have mainly matched peeps on pets/allergies and country and what they would like to make/recieve. so hopefully it should all go very well. Its taking ages. this was supposed to be a ten minute job.

I hear ya!  She has great ideas and her projects are fantastic but the glitter thing is a little bit much sometimes.
Check out her website tho, great ideas!

Well that's the good thing about this Flicker site, there are pictures of things made by a lot (295) of different people, with Mexican kitsch as the theme or influence.  Oh there is glitter, but many things don't have it.  Anyway, check it out.

I agree, I think you did a great job with the partners this time.  This swap is going to be a blast!

BTW, my partner got me really hungry for posole the other night.  She seems to already be an positive influence on me! :D

so did you buy a wrestling mask?  Sounds like a fun festival.

Thursday night was the beginning of the Santa Fe fiestas which starts off with the burning of Zozobra or "old man gloom".  Its held in a park and the old man stands about 4 stories tall.  Its pretty much the official start of fall in New Mexico.  I didn't get to go but all of the local news stations stream it live on their websites.  Here is a link:http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S1737611.shtml?cat=0 (http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S1737611.shtml?cat=0)

I went to the local St Vincent De Paul thrift store yesterday, looking for "stuff". 
found a cute doll but she is from Columbia, so I suppose she NEEDS to live on a shelf with  my other dolls!  But that started me searching thru boxes, and I was pleased to find I still had a couple of little dolls from Ecuador and Peru I was afraid I had gotten rid of.  Bought an assortment of crafting supplies, little things, but had fun making some smalls last night.  You never know what you'll find at the thrift store!

Confession time!  I got so enthusiastic about this swap that I painted the drawer fronts in my kitchen, one is orangy/pink, a purple, a turqoise, left one lime green, and I hope I don't need the landlord to come work on my sink any time soon!  Hola!

"Large" about 1/3 done and coming along nicely.  Waiting for some ______ I ordered so I can get started on my "medium"  Went to the ________ store, for some _______ ______ for my "small".  So far so good.

hi everybody!!!

i have three items done and still have a couple more things in mind.  i just havent felt very crafty lately.  first it was the heat (we had some really hot days in Los Angeles)... and now - its raining and all i want to do is curl up with a blankie and watch a movie.  I would love to get my things out before the deadline though - just need to get inspired! 

happy crafting y'all!

I know its hard sometimes.  I've had the same problem except for the extreme heat and cold.  The ideas that are coming along, I'm really happy with so far.  Many of them my husband sez I should either start selling or make another for us LOL

Anyone else have this problem:  I made something for my partner, and I'm not sure how I am going to get it sent to her.  I can't quite find the right kind of box.  I am open to suggestions. Hopefully I will be able to send out on Monday.

Yes packaging is always a problem, I seem like I'm always having to switch from one box to another, or envelope to box AT the postoffice!  I hate having boxes sitting around, but I even asked for the box the new radiator was packaged in at the Auto Repair recently!

I often ship out really breakable things, odd shaped things, etc.  Message me and I can help you figure it out!
