   ****EDIT*****
 :) I've gotten a couple PM's about this----This is a random swap. You and your partner will discuss how random you both want your packages. If you want to agree on an amount, go right ahead. If you want to make any other guidelines on what and how much to send-go right ahead. I leave that up to you and your partner. The level of random-ness is all up to you. There is no pt system or any other universal guideline other than..that I ask is that you have FUN with it, and make sure your partner is HAPPY in the end of it. Have fun people!! :)

DETAILS OF SWAP
This is an old fashioned random swap.  NO POINT SYSTEM HERE!!!
There isn't a theme, simply stalk you partner, read their questionnaire and have fun crafting.  We are giving a long craft time so everyone has time to craft leisurely.

Does the no limit make you nervous? This swap may not be for you.  
You may knit your partner a sweater that takes FOREVER. If that is the only thing you send swell! you may make your partner 30 tiny gifts. Swell. Do whatever you want, just HAVE FUN!!!


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Another swap I might join, horrible that when I think I need a swapping hiatus there are a bunch of good swaps ready for signup :P
I'll probably fill out the questionnaire and send it in towards  the end of this signup. :D

Oh, I'm all full up on swaps right now, but that should change before sign ups close. I hope.

I have two questions:

1)  Could someone please put the links up to the previous two rounds/galleries?  I can't seem to find them and want to take a peek before I sign up.

2)  Would it be a problem if I signed up for holiday items for family and friends in my questionnaire?  (i.e.-bookmarks, reusable gift bags, reusable gift tags, etc...)

I had a blast doing this swap the last time around but I just signed myself up for the Mini 13 days of Halloween Swap and the school year will be starting here soon.  I'm going to see how much I can get done on the Halloween swap before sign-ups close....  hmmm....  :D

Ooh, I'm really interested in joining! But I have to think about it a bit, I have spent really much money for crafting lately...  :-[ Maybe after the end of the swaps that I am participating at the moment.

I don't see why that would be a problem! =) Long as its items Craftster allows us to send-it'll work for random-ness. =)

I have been looking for another Random swap - I was in round 2 and loved it.

Round 1 (discussion and gallery):

Round 2 (discussion/gallery)
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319253.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323612.0

I am in a mild craft slump, being in Renovation HELL, and losing my primary crafting spaces - but am eager to do some crafting as DH has promised me a craft room of my own, including extra electrical outlets, TV and computer hook up.  Also, I have a bit of play money to get some new crafty gadgets and am eager to try some new things.

Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on July 23, 2011 12:07:41 PM
I thought of another item I didn't add to my questionnaire:  key fobs

I have a craft area...the small space in front of the two bedrooms upstairs.  I FINALLY got it painted and set up the second week in June.  I'm so proud of how it came out!  I also bought myself a sewing machine, and "found" a desk  ;) to go up there.  However, I don't have a chair, so I can't use the desk or the sewing machine!  Arrgghhh....(the space is on the third floor of the house, and there's a steep set of stairs, it would be too hard to drag a chair up and down)

But it IS awesome to be able to find everything and anything I need, when I need it, rather than having to go out and buy new b/c I can't find it.

Oh, I am VERY tempted by this, and will likely join (I'm not allowed to join any new swaps until after I move next weekend... trying to keep myself in check...).  I never pay much attention to point requirements and pretty much just craft until I feel done anyway.   :D  (I'm always over the requirement though, of course I'm not sending less than the requirements!!)

=) Lucky! I would kill to have a craft room to my self. The dinning room table can only go so far. :p

Isn't that the truth!  Our dining room table is currently covered with two computers, a lazy susan, my current knitting project, small tea pot and polymer clay stuff!  ARG!  I'm so ready for the man to finish his Master's so we can have a decent sized apartment for two people (we live 4 hours apart, normally its just him here by his lonesome) and CRAFTY SPACE!

Post by: Onyxnox on July 24, 2011 07:50:33 AM
The craft room came about because DH got sick of my crafting stuff being spread EVERYwhere (and I do mean everywhere - he got stabbed with a beading needle in the hall to the bathroom once, and he never noticed the one I picked out of his shoulder the night he rolled over and I was beading - but he is sick of finding piles of magazines under his pillow).

But we have been in renovations for a couple of years (doing it himself and with a friend or two).  We added a second story and the master bedroom was going to be a spare room, but then he figured I may as well have a craft room because it would get more use, and then if things start piling up elsewhere, he could open the door and fire them back into my craft room.

I knew about the layout of the rest of the house for years - but the moment he told me the room is MINE, I had it decorated and painted in my mind before the rest of the house.  I have furniture ideas and paint listed already on my blog.  My main computer will still be in our office, as friends wired the second small bedroom for it years ago, but they are putting extra outlets in the master room.  I will have bookshelves and a dresser for yarn and supply storage.  MIL is giving me an old family treadle sewing machine, which is still functional, but I am using for decorative purposes.  I will have a queen sofa bed there, and one or two rolling desk chairs for sewing/etc.  Smaller plastic storage under the table for paints, etc.  Painted pegboard for my quilting rulers.  A magnetic white board for idea listing and small item storage, using magnetic spice containers (beads, pins, etc).

A friend's mom has been saving a 6x3' oak table for me for years and it will be my main work table.

Can you tell I am excited?

Miss Barbara - would a rolling desk chair work for your space?  You can get the casters that protect hardwood, or put a small rug down, and there are many that are slim profile.  I just find it works great with the adjustable height for sewing.

Ha, I know exactly what you mean!  Just spent a frantic ten minutes trying to find the right size crochet hook.  Couldn't.  Did find five, though, FIVE 4mm ones.  Why??  And the 3.25mm I was looking for will surely turn up tomorrow after I've replaced it.  Probably down the back of the sofa but my bf is napping so I'll leave him to it.

I would LOVE a craft room, I've almost short circuited my netbook drooling over the ones I've seen on here.

I'm really looking forward to this swap!

Are you near a college or university?  Sometimes when the students are moving out of residence at the end of the year, you can get good pickings as they move home and dump stuff.  Or try freecycle or craigslist/kijiji. I got my last two free - one was from when offices were updating, and the other when the neighbour moved.  Just make sure the casters are OK and have all their bearings.

I got my "craft chair" by accident, I was working as a youth worker at a summer club at my old secondary school (high school) and the caretaker had been ordered to throw away all the computer chairs as they were getting new ones. So there were approx 100 perfectly good computer chairs in a skip and scattered around the carpark so the nice caretaker helped me choose one and load into the boot of my car. I rescued it :D

I've wanted to do swaps for ages.  I'm so psyched for this.

I'll be one of those 5! I'll be working on my questionnaire tonight! I'll volunteer to be your co-organizer. I'm recently back from a Craftster-hiatus (real life kept me busy with becoming an independent adult  ::) ), but I'm back! I've organized multiple swaps in the past and participated in quite a few, as you can see on my profile. I was super-addicted to swapping for a while. I get my motivation from making things from others!

I think that the stalking is my favorite part! (Is it just me, or does that sentence make me look like a creeper? I promise I'm not!  ;) ) Between this and the Harry Potter swap that is starting soon, I've already started stalking some people... I swear it's just to get more ideas to put on my wist!

So do you just talk with your partner to make sure you're sending equal packages?


Title: Re: Random Swap round 3 :) Sign ups july 21-august 18 send october 6
Post by: Ffrogg526 on July 27, 2011 04:50:03 PM
Yeah - that's basically how it works.  When I did round two I was partnered with Hedgewitch and we sent HUGE packages to each other.  I don't think I could send a package that big again.  But its really just completely random, if you want to send a 25 pound box of stuff or if you want to send one item that weighs less than a pound.  Either is fine as long as you and your partner agree on it.

I'm going to be on vacation for a couple of weeks just prior to sendouts, so that is perfect for finishing crafting.  We go the cottage and I always have to bring something to make.  I think that was what happened in the last Random swap too.  Only thing would be I would be incommunicado as there is no wifi there.  If ther3e is the decision to close and partner early,. I know I would not mind!

But what if the person that would be absolutely perfect to be your partner only sends in their questionnaire at the last minute (due to any number of factors that have prevented them from signing up so far)? You might miss out on some amazing goodies!

Plus, from an organizing standpoint, I have a feeling that ongoing partnering would give me major headaches. Like, if the last two I had was someone who had 4 cats and someone who was insanely allergic to cats. Yeah, I know, boring stuff, but someone's gotta think about it!

It never hurts to ask! Just have to keep in mind that there may be something like...
- indigo_roses lives in Australia (not really), and wants to partner with Miss Barbara
- Miss Barbara lives in the US, and is not able to ship outside the country
Then, the organizers couldn't honor your request, due to organization-y stuffs. But you can always feel free to ask for a certain partner (or, on the flipside, request to NOT be with someone) in any swap. It only takes the organizer a second to read your question, and if they feel they can fulfill it, great, if not, the question didn't cause any harm.  :)

I guess I'll put myself out there for early partnering, too ^__^ My main talent is crochet, and I specialize in making Pokťmon and other nerdy amigurumis. I also make simple jewelry from pop tabs and am getting into amateur bookbinding. I'd be interested in anyone that can make custom jewelry or that can sew dolls (not ami dolls, I've made enough of those myself :D)

That's why I love Pintrest so much. I don't think there is a single thing I like that isn't represented on there somewhere. About the only thing it doesn't have is my measurements, because I haven't thought of a way of adding them that isn't awkward... but I'll get there!

If anyone in the swap would like a Pintrest invite, just PM me with an email address and I'll send you one. I find it so much easier to come up with original craft ideas looking at a Pintrest rather than Wist, so I'm really just being selfish and lazy in offering  :D

I don't mind waiting for partners.  It's my first year teaching and I start Monday, so getting into the swing of things before I start crafting would be helpful. 

I know some of you are talking about self-partnering so I thought I'd throw up a little about myself, maybe someone would want me haha.

Crocheting and Jewelry making are my primary crafts.  I also dabble with paper things i.e. making paper beads, collages, modpodging.  I've got a few other tricks and things I like to do, but I wanna keep them on the DL so I can have a view surprises for whomever I end up swapping with  ;D.  I plan on taking a sewing class this fall at our local community college, yay! 

That's about it, for now at least.  ;)

I think I'm going to join.  I've been on a swapping hiatus as I've been busy the last few months making things, including all the bridesmaids dresses, for my sister's wedding.  But she's all married now and I've recovered enough to want to start some fun crafting. 

The long crafting time should give me lots of time for some low stress crafting.  I'm working on filling out the questions.  I have a Wist and am working on converting it over to Pinterest.  I really like the format and ability to separate out different areas in Pinterest; I have a list on there for craft swap wishes.  I was also doing the OWS this winter and still have my wish list from that I can send a partner if they need more ideas.

I'd be open to self-partnering/early partnering but I'm also fine waiting.  I'm in the US and my primary craft is sewing and embroidery.  I also do a bit of felting (both needle and wet felting).  I knit...but I'm very new to it so knitting projects still take me forever.  I love making baby/toddler stuff, so if anyone has a young child they'd like me to spoil I'd have a lot of fun with that.  I have things I'd like in just about every area of crafting so I'm open to just about anything for a partner, with the exception that I don't wear much jewelery so someone that mainly does jewelery might have a hard time with me.  Then again there are some other things a beader could make for me that I'd love...like a beaded christmas tree, ornaments, or other decoration type things.  I'd love to have someone who makes natural beauty products send me some soap/lotion/body scrub/lip balm or a fiber artist to send me some fiber and/or hand spun yarn.  I'd also love a package that included supplies or "learn to" type kits for those things.

Post by: rootdarc on July 30, 2011 06:28:10 PM
I would also be open to partnering early if someone was interested.  This is my first swap so I'm excited to get started.  I mainly sew/quilt, but also do a little cross-stitch, dabble in some paper crafts and painting, not a lot of experience with jewelry, but do lots of different little things.  Am currently working on a felt playhouse and quilt for my 2 year old's birthday and some t-shirts for his party, but that will be over in 2 weeks and I will have plenty of time to get crafting!  I also have lots of supplies.

I'm not picky about who I partner with - there are so many fun things I saw that I would like while browsing through the previous round gallery!  Aside from the great crafts,  I loved the whimsies, buttons, supplies and stuff for the kiddos.  I'm cool with doing a bigger package - it looks like so much fun!  I would love to learn to embroider and get better at making clothes! I have a lot of likes on Pinterest already - so that in addition to my questionnaire should give someone a good idea!

Very excited to get started  :)

By the way, are there any participants from Europe? I don't mind sending overseas but as you know the posting can cost quite much when the package gets even a bit bigger or heavier.

Good to hear! :) I am in Finland (quite far from everybody) and it's quite pointless to even hope for another Finnish participant but I am always really happy if I can get a partner from Europe. That way I can try to spoil her even more than a partner from overseas.  :D

I used to try and keep them seperate, have the Wist for crafty wisty things, and the Pintrest for broader theme like things, like my favourite movies and flavours and such, but it got to be too much work keeping up both, and there were too many cool crafty things being added by my pintrest friends so I combined them. The seperate boards for different categories really appeals to the inner ocd Virgo in me too  ;D

My wists is huge too (800+ items).  It's a pain trying to transfer it all to Pinterest (which is far superior, I think).  I wish I could have got a Pinterest account sooner than I did.  Oh well.  I was quite Wisty, now I'm fairly Pinteresty.

I was concerned that I wasn't going to be able to get any of my planned projects done before I finished the last swap I was in and the partnering time of this swap.  (I want to make scarves for my preschool students-30 of them!-for the upcoming holidays, and some scarves to donate to the Special Olympics.)  Luckily, preschoolers are short and have little necks  ;D so the crafting of the scarves for them has been going at a good pace-I have three done already.  I have one scarf for the Special Olympics done and one in the works.

This might be a really dumb question, but I'm fairly new to Pinterest and never had a wist.  Do you just get your partner's username from them and then look them up on Pinterest?  What about wists?  Does your partner just give you a link for their wist or do you have to sign up and have one also to see it?  I can't wait to start stalking!!

not dumb.  perfectly normal actually.  the good thing is, you don't need to have an account to either site to see other's pins/wists.  your partner's info should contain their wist/pinterest link, so you're covered there.  a lot of us also have them on our profiles here.  as far as searching, I think you can.  a lot of us did get to use our craftster usernames, but some may not have been as lucky (but I think the majority will be under these names).

JEALOUS! You wanna send your drop spindles and directions (and maybe a person to talk me through it) my way? I've been drooling over Fiber Fridays forever, and really want to learn how to spin. I did receive a drop spindle and a little bit of roving in a swap a few years back, but the yarn didn't turn out too well.  ::)

We have a limit as to how many to sign up? 

If sign ups end early that just means more time to stalk and craft.  I will be finishing my last swap in a couple of days so I can devote myself to Randomy goodness and stalking (well, that and worrying about renovations and how I am going to decorate).

I just joined Pinterist too, so will have to figure out how that works.  I can't see Wist pics on my work computer for some reason.

I guess it's the 25 participants / 1 organizer thing. This swap has two organizers so that would make 50 participants. I guess it's not common to have this many interested in the same swap. ;D

Maybe this swap could also have three organizers so that we could have more participants? In case needed. I think the crafting time is nice and long anyway even if the sign up doesn't close early.

If someone else is willing to join me and Indigo_roses in organizing, we can have more people, least it can be 75 instead of 50. Yeah if I'm reading the rules right we can only have 25 to each organizer. There is no cap in the amount of people in this swap, I'll just need to find another co-organizer to pitch in to help as well.

The 100 facts about me swap sounds like a blast! We seriously need to do a round two of that one.

I co-organized a Christmas Stocking Swap with SevsOnlyGirl and we had 90 participants with only 2 of us doing it.  I just went to the swap rules section and found this:  If the number of participants exceeds 25 members, you must either recruit a co-organizer or contact a swap mod and arrange to send them a copy of your records.  So unless something has changed and I just couldn't find it, I think 2 can manage any size.

Sure, kwality. Here's what I put:

- Whatever you're best at making. I love all sorts of handmade objects, especially useful ones. So if you craft something that you love, I will probably love it too!
- Something warm. I just moved to a place that actually gets snow in the winter!
- Art for my walls. I have lots and lots of empty wall space.
- Note cards.
- Christmas stocking stuffers, such as little games, tasty treats, small cosmetics, etc.

Sure! I have a Cascade Little Si drop spindle, great little tool to learn on. She is not much to look at but I found spinning to be easy on it. I tried a fancy one once and it just did not feel right. My first yarn turned out quite sloppy but I progressively got better with each new hank I made. Pre drafting did wonders for me. Pm your addy and I can send it as soon as I get back from Vegas!

ha ha.  you are SO freaking funny...  :P  I wore my crocheted armwarmers to work that I got in...ummm...a swap (can't remember which one) and all I could do was think about how I wish I could make things like them.  but alas, crochet hates me.  :(

Yes, I would love to be in another 100 facts about me swap.  It was a lot of fun and gives a lot of leeway for the crafter to get creative.  That's why I loved the Random swap too - what you get is a total surprise!

I asked for things related to stained glass, art work or storage items for my new craft room, art work related to my dogs, cow kitchen themed stuff, and Christmas ornaments, and anything for garden decor.

I asked for things on my Pintrest. Specific things... but I can't remember now. But anyone getting me can just look at my Pintrest. I spend a lot (read too much!) of time updating it, and crawling though boards of random strangers to add things. I'm not quite up to the 2000 pins some of the hardcore Craftsters that I've seen have, but I'm getting there slowly! And it has the added bonus of not being a static snapshot like my questionnaire!

Gosh Darn, I just remembered one of the items I wanted to put on my top 5 things. I left the 5th one blank because I just couldn't remember. Of course I remember now! Ah well. It was a quilt block embroidered with a cute and cuddly, but not cartoony bear.

I've taken to saving my questionnaire PMs in my outbox, otherwise I'd never be able to remember what I put on them ::)

Here's my top 5:
1. any kind of texas related art (jewelry, needlework, etc)
2. amigurumi!!
3. fancy ear cuffs
4. felted stuff for my house
5. any kind of steampunk/vintage/victorian-looking jewelry

yay!

I'm also thinking of taking some course(s) this autumn and hope that it will be of some help for future crafting. ;D Post will bring the leaflet for all the available courses next week but I couldn't wait for it and already searched from the net what courses they will offer. I am kind of disappointed that they don't offer any courses about silver clay. :( That's something I would really love to learn.
Out of the options that you gave I would also select clay like indigo_roses.

my top five was a large paragraph instead of a list. i named some specifics from my wist and etsy favorites.

but honestly, i'm probly gonna flip over anything i get. as long as it is NOT solid pink or red. it seems there was a slight miscomunication in one of my previous swaps and everything i recieved was pink. i own 1 pink item. a pair of sandals. not the biggest fan of the pinks and reds. :)

My SIL and her SO were going to pay for a stained glass or metal working class for me for my Christmas present, but unfortunately every single one I looked at was on days I worked (my shifts are either at night or end at 7:30 at the earliest), or too far on the other side of the city for me :C

But I will say that our city school board offers some awesome awesome continuing/adult ed classes - everything is offered.  Basic classroom stuff like creative writing, accounting, English as a second language, and other languages - but great creative classes like pottery, basket weaving, metal work, silversmithing, fine art, drawing, sculpture, water colour, various types of cooking, Manga cartoon drawing.  So many awesome things.  I am definitely keeping an eye out for something for myself in the future.  A friend took one of the pottery classes and loved it.  They are all less than $200 for the semester too.

I just sent in my questionnaire! :) I can't wait for this swap to begin...

And, since everyone is "advertising" their craftiness, I guess I'll advertise as well.

I hope and pray that my partner will have a cute little dog in dire need of a new doggy wardrobe full of pretty doggy dresses! Or a dog that needs homemade dog treats My female dog passed away and my "new" dog is a boy. There's nothing fun about making clothes for a boy dog or making treats for a dog who is alleric to grains.

My craft of choice is sewing (I'm best at clothing and costumes). I hope to be paired with someone who can make me some pretty jewelry, or a nice tote bag.

And I also want someone who will communicate.

I'm the same. I want to stalk the partner for the perfect ideas and I don't want to make any plans yet. What if she doesn't like at all the plans I have made (or it doesn't suit her style) and I have already got all excited about making the items for her?

Yep! Sometimes I'll think ahead when the swap has a theme, but definitely not for this! My thinking ahead is... I could make them something crocheted, or some ATCs, or some jewelry, or a stenciled shirt, etc. Basically, what do I know how to do.  :P I have been doing some prestalking, but I keep getting distracted by peoples' pinterests! Plus, there's so many people signed up for the swap I don't know if I'll be able to prestalk everyone before signups are over. Hopefully I get to everyone that ironic sends to me to be in my group, it'll make my partnering easier!

I decided to join after I have finished hopefully at least one of the swaps that I am in at the moment.
By the way, are there any participants from Europe? I don't mind sending overseas but as you know the posting can cost quite much when the package gets even a bit bigger or heavier.

I'm in the UK!  There are a couple of others here in this swap as well, I think.

I'm in the Netherlands and would like to have a partner who's in Europe as well!

I've been busy adding things to my Pinterest too.  I just put down things I could think of at the time on my questionnaire but there are so many more crafty things I love/want.  So I hope my partner just uses my answers as a suggestion.

I have lots of ideas of things I might make but they're all pretty broad.  It's lots more fun to stalk a partner and then figure out just the right thing for them.  I'm trying to be patient but can't wait to get partners and start stalking!

This swap got me into Pinterest and I've almost switched all my wists to it.  When we get partners I'll have to give her that link rather than the wist one I had listed.

I've got to ask - what's the benefit of a Pinterest as opposed to a Wist? It sounds like people like it better but I haven't tried it out so I'm curious why everyone likes it, hehe. :)

Post by: SilverMoon on August 11, 2011 04:42:32 AM
Pintrest is crazy. I had (have, it's still there) 155 things on my Wist. I have 784 Pins. Granted, not all of them are craft related, but it give a much clearer picture of my tastes and style, which means my partners get to exercise more imagination rather than just flat copying a thing off my Wist.

I know, I know, I've been talking far too much about Pintrest in this thread. But it excites me. I'm a nerd. I spend more time on there than Facebook these days, and that's saying something! In fact, my Pintrest obsession made it possible to recently spend three weeks completely off Facebook. Not a single 'like', link, or status update.

Just 700 odd pins.  :D

Post by: SilverMoon on August 11, 2011 04:49:35 AM
fluffypants, it starts out being the separate boards. Then you start following a few people, and you repin things they've pinned, because it's cool. Then the next thing you know you are following twenty people and have a stream of cool things on your home page that is almost as constant as Facebook with 100 friends. But better, because it's stuff you like.

I think the social aspect of it is what keeps me coming back multiple times a day. Also, the pictures are bigger than on a wist. And because I have separate boards for craft wants, and actual "I want this thing, please buy it" wants, I use it for my birthday list for my family to look at. Which means there is a whole load of commercially made things my partners can be inspired by too. And craft supplies. And tutes I want to try. It's better than a "one day I will..." bookmark folder for that because I see it more often.

I guess I started out he pintrest thing incorrectly... I pressed the "request invite" from the homepage and it sent me an invite. I followed that and it appears I'm "following" a bazillion people!
Most of the stuff it shows is not anything I'm interested in...
I can't get the pinthis button to work on my Explorer bar either... :-\
I'm not completely sold on Pintrest yet lol! guess I'll have to keep working at it.

I've never been able to get the pinthis button to work either. So usually I just have pinterest open in a tab and I use the url to add my pins. But mostly I just repin. Also you can unfollow people.

I need to really reorganize my pins before this swap starts though. Meh.

right now, Pinterest isn't updating it seems.  it happens.  all sites get glitches.  Craftster's even been known to have a few.  it'll pass.  I still say Pinterest is way better than wists.  the ability to categorize your stuff is the best feature.

Pinterest is waaay better than wists. I love the categories. I've used Pinterest on 5 different computers and it works fine in Google Chrome, Internet explorer and Mozilla/Firefox, but I tried using it on my boyfriend's computer last night with Mozilla and Internet explorer and for some reason it just doesn't work. I tried resolving it a few different ways. I have no idea what the deal is.

random and off topic...
Fluffypants - I love your icon... It reminds me of when I first started glass fusing. There was an old Saturday Night Live skit with Chevy Chase (really old!lol) where the "news" was about a new "kids toy" - "bag o' glass" which was essentially a bag of broken bits of glass - you can imagine the tongue-in-cheek stuff.
Anyway - my husband bought me my first kiln several years ago when I first started fusing and I said, "look how easy it'll be to shop for significant holidays for me now! Just "bag-o-glass" and I'm totally jazzed!!!"
Your "jar of dirt" just makes me smile whenever I see it! Lol!

Haha, too cute!

I got my Pinterest invite thingy all sorted out and transferred over almost all of my Wists - some of them were broken links so I left them out, and the ones I really liked I just pinned directly from my Wists. Maybe someday I'll go back and see if I can find those items elsewhere, but for now I'm wiped! I already like Pinterest, except I get tired of coming up with descriptions when I'm transferring over 100+ links. ;)

I did! Found that out by accident, because I was highlighting and copying, and forgot to de-highlight, and it worked automatically. BIG timesaver.

Although my new petpeeve is people pinning recipes from blogs' front pages or archives without bothering to click on to the permalink first. That delicious cake isn't going to be on the front page in four months time you know!

Maybe you should change the topic title to match the new date just in case there are some who want to think until the last moment.
But I'm glad that we'll get partners soon!  ;D More time for stalking and crafting!

I've started working on partners in my group. I have the international people done, and have extracted the most important information from everyone's questionnaire. Now I'm making lots of charts for who makes what and who wants what! I have a few possible pairs, but nothing definite state-side yet.  :P Now, however, I have to go to bed so I can get up for work in the morning.

I'll send out my partners as soon as I get them done. (Ironic, I'm figuring that you'll just add any last minute signups to your group, correct?)

Is it too late to sign up?? I've really been wanting to join, but have been so busy the last week with work and getting ready for school that I haven't had much craftster time! I'll go ahead and fill out a questionnaire, and if it's still open I'll send it in later tonight!

Signups are open through the 15th (Monday). Because there are so many people in this swap, aheartofglass and I am helping ironic organize. Ironic sent us the people in our groups last night so we could start working on them. I'm assuming she'll take anyone who signs up after that into her own group.

So apparently I lied about going to bed, because I went back to partnering.  ::) I have my group in possible partners. I want to look over it again tomorrow after work (when I don't have to get up in 7 hours), but I believe my group should get their partners tomorrow night, as long as our lovely organizer is okay with that.  :D

Mine magically continues sewing after I've taken my foot off the pedal, going 100mph and eating fabric as it pleases.  I'm sort of attached to it, and can usually wrangle it into submission, but my eyes have been wandering lately.

Sounds like your sewing machine has a mind of its own. Some days the tension on mine is messed up and other days it works OK. It's my grandma's old sewing machine. She gave it to me when she got a new one. Before that I had my mom's old sewing machine, which also had problems with the tension. I think it's time I bought my own!

I have some ideas for nisforneville, but I need to go to the craft store first. Unfortunately, the clutch on my dad's truck broke last night, so he's borrowing my car until it's fixed.  :-\ Yes, I can walk to work, but it's really annoying being stuck in a small town with no transportation! I'll have to stalk her some more and see if I get inspired for something that I can make all from my stash. Hopefully I'll have my car back soon!

I have some ideas for nisforneville, but I need to go to the craft store first. Unfortunately, the clutch on my dad's truck broke last night, so he's borrowing my car until it's fixed.  :-\ Yes, I can walk to work, but it's really annoying being stuck in a small town with no transportation! I'll have to stalk her some more and see if I get inspired for something that I can make all from my stash. Hopefully I'll have my car back soon! 

Oh no! I'm in a small town too, with no public transportation, so not having a car would be a problem. Hope you get your car back soon!

I've still got to make a supply run to get stuff for some of the ideas I have for you, but I've started with stuff from my stash first. I've finished one small thing that is part of a larger set. I'm quite excited about this swap, since it's my first. :)

I wish there were more craft shops near where I live, although I suppose I'm lucky with what there is - a largeish shop that does a lot of what I need, and there's a John Lewis department store with a haberdashery (bit expensive when there's not a sale on though).  I do find I end up shopping online though (mostly ebay) just because it's easier to find what I need!  There's a Hobbycraft in the next city over, but it's in a retail park and you need a car.  Maybe I'll get my boyfriend to take me...

I volunteer in a charity shop and we get random things donated.  Today I picked up a     that I might turn into a               for this swap, plus a big bag of vintage buttons!  Score!

I haven't started crafting yet, but the notebook and pen have come out :)

Oh, I love the thrift stores! I grab bags of old jewelry to remake, yarn for the kid, little boxes to paint or decoupage, sometimes clocks and watches, you never know what you'll find! The Dollar Store occasionally, and I work next to an art supply store that I love. I do have a Michaels I can go to, but I try not to. There's always more things than I can afford to buy! I need all my willpower not to overspend if I go there.
And I looove the Manto Fev website for supplies and epherma, that's a treat I save up for.
Still getting ideas, but haven't had time to sit down and craft. It'll be better in a week or two. Eh, more time to plan!

I'm wondering...those of you that have the Walmarts that have the fabric back in them, is it arranged like it was before, with the bolts of fabric and all that?  'Cause I went to one of the Walmarts near me and got all excited for a moment, b/c the "craft" area was in a different place...went around a corner and saw that all they had was some fat quarters and bundles of the quilting fabric.  I was so annoyed and disappointed.

2 of the 3 of ours that have crafty stuff have the bolts of fabric and 1 just has the fat quarters. The rest of the Walmarts in the area (at least 6 of them) don't even carry craft stuff.

I have 4 Wal-Marts within 30 minutes from everywhere I stay. All of them used to have wicked huge crafts isles. Now they only have a few shelves of yarn, beads and scrap booking supplies. It dwindled down to one isle. Now I have even less desire to go there. I used to love craft shopping at the 24 hour one in the middle of the night. So fun.

I am lucky Hobby Lobby and Michaels, Goodwill too all within a mile.  Jo anns about a 45 min drive.  Walmart just 2 aisles of stuff.  We do have a Ross and Tuesday Morning which I check often.   Always make several trips to Hobby Lobby in the weeks they have the 40% off coupon.  I make BF tag along and purchase seperate so I actually use 2 coupons each time.

Gotta run but will check in when I can.

I have been working away at my swap. I just finished one idea and now I thought of a couple more.
 
My friend told me about Craftsters a long time ago. I just never really checked it out. However, now that I actually did, Iím addicted.  ;D

I'm wondering...those of you that have the Walmarts that have the fabric back in them, is it arranged like it was before, with the bolts of fabric and all that?  'Cause I went to one of the Walmarts near me and got all excited for a moment, b/c the "craft" area was in a different place...went around a corner and saw that all they had was some fat quarters and bundles of the quilting fabric.  I was so annoyed and disappointed.

Our Wal-mart has quilt kits (fabric pre-cut), fat quarter bundles, and pre-cut fabrics that are folded and attached to cardboard hanger things. So, no bargain fabrics or anything like before.

The other day when I went, I couldn't even find embroidery hoops or floss. I'm not a fan of Wal-mart anyway, but since they've remodeled, I really dread going there because I hate walking all over the entire store just to find an item I want. It's not the walking part, just the searching and searching until I find it and more often than not, it's NOT where I think it should be.

I do find neat stuff at Dollar Tree sometimes, and on one occasion I found some yarn at our Goodwill, but our Goodwill is mostly clothes and a few random things. I rarely find craft supplies there.

I'm jealous of all of you with craft stores nearby!

Haha, I do that EXACT same thing with my BF when there are 40% off coupons. =P
I live less than a 5 minute drive away from Hobby Lobby. It's so nice because I can be in the middle of a project and realize I need something and, unless it's after 8, make a quick drive and be back within 15 min.

I've found some pretty nice yarn at Big Lots for a dollar. They're not very big skeins, but for a dollar, it's not bad. Especially if it's the fun fur stuff that is really expensive at Hobby Lobby. I can also find some pretty good glass and ceramic beads there from time to time as well for a dollar a pack.

On topic though, I haven't got anything started. I've been working a lot lately, getting prepared for classes to start again Monday, and then I had a baby shower to go to today, so it's been pretty hectic since partners have been given out. Good thing about this week though is even though I have class, I don't work again until next Saturday (besides tomorrow with the district manager is coming, yikes!). So I plan on getting quite a bit done then. I have some ideas but really need to have a major brainstorm session this week. :)

Yesterday I went shopping in San Fransisco. I was looking for a specific fabric, which I didn't find :( (If anyone runs into a mustard-yellow wool herringbone online, let me know!).  Instead, though I found two fantastic prints that I just know my partner will adore, so I snatched them up before anyone else could. I also found this ah-mazing rainbow faux fur (which is also right up my partner's alley) that was super, super soft, long and vibrant, but at $85 a yard, I couldn't afford to get it...especially since the fabric store won't sell less than a yard of their "luxury" fabric. What kind of fabric store does that?!

Anyways, I haven't started on any project yet, but I'm dying to. I'm so jealous of all of you guys who've already started :P

Well, here's a hint I read on Craftster ages ago. Since faux fur is so expensive, their solution was stuffed animals! She would buy them cheap after the holidays, and take them apart.
Anyway, I have my scribbled notes, and ideas. I think I have most of what I need in my stash. Hoping to get some crafting time in this week! Work has been insane, since the store's in liquidation, but things have settled down a bit now.
I'm going to try something new for one of my items, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out.

I've heard of people doing this too! During the $10 Dollar Store craft challege (I don't think that's the exact name, lol) someone took apart a teddy bear and made something fabulous with the faux fur.

I feel they're being put out of their misery if they're the dollar store kind.  they're not always the nicest looking; lopsided muzzles, crooked eyes, etc.  so rather than be unloved, why not skin 'em and turn them into something awesome?  ;) :D

I've often thought it would be fun to skin a plush cookie monster (or just find some blue shag and add a couple of big googly eyes), and have a muppet bear skin rug. ^_^

I have a shaggy, purple fun fur jacket that I got when I was 16 (13 yrs ago).  I thought I looked ace, but I'm sure I looked like a muppet  :D

Still not received the yarn I ordered (no doubt it will come today, while I'm out) and I also haven't managed to get to the craft shop to pick up some fabric stabiliser so I haven't started crafting yet :( Hopefully, my boyfriend and I will be visiting Chester tomorrow, and there's a craft shop there.

My dad's going to take me up to my apartment tomorrow so I can raid my stash (and get other stuff like clothes, but that's not as important  ::)), and then hopefully by this weekend I'll have gotten someone to take me shopping so that I can get the rest of the supplies I need, since I'm not allowed to drive until I'm off the super pain pills.

I must admit I still haven't started crafting.  Still need that darn stabiliser.  Hmm, maybe tomorrow.

Oh, a needle has broken in my machine like that twice in one day once! (I think I was sewing something really thick...) It made me scared to sew for a while, lol. And I did wear my glasses after that, hah.

It's been an epic battle with one of the items that I'm making for hayleyhandmade. I nearly lost an eye when a needle broke in my sewing machine the other day. I need goggles methinks!
 Why did I think that ________ ____ material would be good to use? Well, actually it is, I just didn't think it would be so bloody difficult to sew!

Ah please be careful! Don't blind yourself on my account  :P

 I'll try! I think it might be safer to sew the rest of this item by hand :D

Wow - so many busy busy crafters!  I am ashamed to admit that I am still in the planning stages.  I meant to do a supply run during my lunch breaks this week - but I NEVER got an actual break - just enough time to wolf some food down 9 hous into my shift.  Then after my set of shifts, I found all I had motivation for was to go out for a few drinks with a galpal from work.  But I have a plan!!!

One item is easy-peasy for me so I'm not stressing over that, the other one I want to make is new technique for me, and a bit complicated so I'm a little nervous.

Just got back from the craft store... All I needed was a zipper, but I found a super adorable flannel (with elephants on it) and snatched it up! I just know rainbowsewist will -love- this. I think it would make cute doggie pjs.

Guess who has filled a med. size postal box for one of my partners already. She's going to the university soon, so I really played up on things that would work with that. My finals for summer school is this week. And instead of studying..all I've done is craft. :p I really need to put the paint down and do some focusing on with this school thing. Ick. Her large item is just so darn addicting!!! I keep making more and more **** I have enough to fill 2 shoe boxes with them. :)

I'm still working away. As I was working away I had a bit of a giggle that the items that I plan to make for my partner could be "brought" at a large market, so I am toying with the idea of posting it all to my partner in a crochet market bag... only I'm struggling to find a pattern I'm happy with.

Being a part of this swap has driven me to decide to quit smoking. When I craft, I go outside and smoke, wash my hands, smear lotion on, and repeat. I go completely away from the crafting area it takes about 15 minutes for each smoke. Then I end up getting distracted with something else. The large item I'm making is very stressful and the smoking in between is just becoming a pain. I just wanna get it done with out the breaks and distractions. SO, I'm on day 3 of no smoking, but I am using those wicked nasty ass lozenges. Hopefully by the time I'm ready to mail everything out, I will be nicotine free!

Way to go Hellzapopper! And just think of all the new craft supplies you can buy with the money you've been spending on smokes! I quit 3 years ago, and have been feeling the urge again lately (my partner smokes a lot more than he used to back then) but with a packet costing $13 or up, I just can't afford to take it up again. Which is good for me I suppose.  ;)

Currently working on an item that will take a long time, but it's going to be worth it in the end. Hoping to knock out a few small items this weekend! I'm finding some really neat things to make through Pinterest.

Still have only made one nifty small. But in about a week my bookstore will be closed, giving me more crafting time! And I've done uber amounts of stalking. I have my items all planned out. Of course, nothing even comes out exactly as planned-my crafty fingers have a mind of their own-but I'm pleased with what I've decided on.
I will miss working at the bookstore dreadfully, but life goes on. I'll find something else, or maybe even go back to school, and get caught up on stuff at home in the meantime. I need to do a massive cleanout, and have stuff sent to Goodwill, yard saled, or ebayed.
And I found something in my stash that will be perfect to use for an item, yay! It's not so much exactly from the wist/pintrist as inspired by them, but I think it'll be nifty.

Those are the best things. That's why I make a point of pinning lots of general pointers to my style and likes, so that my partners can look at what I like, and make something I will like, in a style that they like to do. Art instead of a cheap copy, if you like.

Happy Birthday, ladies!

I got confirmation on a technical idea I had last night.  ;D  Everything planned for a busy weekend of crafting, preparing my kids for school next week, and hopefully getting a night of camping in before the weather gets cold.  Busy, but it's always nice to have fun things (like crafting!) to help keep my mind off the million other things I didn't list. ha

I love swapping because it has so often pushed me to learn new things. 

I picked up some supplies today, and will be starting my crafting tomorrow, depending on the chores :/

DH is going out Friday night to a friend's for a guys night, so I may be able to do some concentrated crafting.

You're right quaggy...the u-haul is a bit much...I couldn't drive to Texas, it's too hot for me there!  I'll send it by plane, instead!  ;D

I do live about 35 minutes from Hobby and Bush so you are good there!   I am so ready to craft this weekend!  I need it for stress relief from work so bad.   Hope things are slowing at work, this years start of school has been a real bi.....h!

No more progress here but my supplies and cut out items have been screaming at me from the craft room.  I have not even opened the door all week.

I've been having a hell of a time lately. I was sick with what I'm hoping is a 24 hour bug (I'm a contractor so I don't get sick pay, so I force myself into work if I'm able to walk straight). I was seeing trippy colours lol!
 My sewing machine scared the bejaysus out of me last night, the bulb got *really* bright and then just went out (this was just after I cleaned it, after breaking 2 needles!). I was terrified that I broke my beloved machine but she still works though so all is well. I just can't tell if it's on or not without the bulb.

 Enough ranting from me! Happy belated birthdays, hope everyone else is doing good!

Just checking back in, wow I've missed a few pages of gossip over the last couple of days. This week has been a nightmare for me and my family. My cousin's teenage son was very ill with pneumonia and unfortunately passed away early Wednesday morning. It's a sad time for us all and I haven't been crafting but I'm going to start again tomorrow, I always find it therapeutic so it might lift my spirits.

Anyway sorry for the downer, hope everyone is having a good (and crafty) week.

I have a couple of smalls and a medium done.  I have one more medium almost done.  Then there's the large I'm planning.  I have most of the supplies but I haven't started on it yet.  Maybe I'll get started this weekend. 

I'm having lots of fun with this.  I've tried a couple of new things for this swap and am love how they've turned out.  It's always fun for me to have a reason to try something new. :)  And the long craft time is nice so if the new things don't turn out I don't have to panic...I have time to make something else.

I found some things in my stash that I think my partner would like, so have added them as extras.  I did not get as far as I would like last night with some things - misplaced my trusty exacto knife, so they will have to wait.  But I did make some progress on some stuff - unfortunately it was for another swap - but that is out of my hair now, so I can concentrate on this one and a few others.

I have not had a check in PM in mine either - but things are progressing.  Did a check of my check list and so far I have  3-4 small/mediums done, and a few  more things to do - timing is good so far.  I am on vacation just before the swap is due and may do the larger items during that time.

It's looking like I need to shuffle some ideas.... I went supply hunting today and came home empty handed. I'll have to dig through my stash to see if I can make this one idea work, or if I'm gonna have to re-plan. At least I have a rough back up plan just in case!

Think I should have some time to craft tomorrow, so I'm hoping to at least get an item or two wrapped up.

I did quite a bit of crafting over the long weekend (more like normal weekend for me since I work every Saturday anyway...). I made a new craft that I'd never tried before, and it was so much fun that I made a few extras. I ended up having to restart the large item, but I definitely like it more now that I've started over. The mediums are done. I still have to finish up one small item and make a few more. If I have time I have plans to make more stuff, but the large item is the priority right now. I have so many ideas, but even though the due date is a month away, I won't have time to do everything I'd like!

I spent from 1-4:30 this afternoon working on a project only to have it not work out properly.  I then spent the next 1/2 hour taking the entire thing apart and will be starting over now that I know what changes need to be made.

Been catching up on the last few pages since I only my net back today after a storm last weekend killed our modem.

Progressing! I finished two items and I have to say they're my favorite items so far. It was a bit fiddly to make, but it looks awesome done (and it wasn't as hard to make as it seemed). So far I've got 6 items done. I'm still got at least 2 more planned. :)

I finished the __________ ____________ yesterday evening.

Soon I am also finished with the ___________ that is also in my opinion medium/large. I have also made one small while watching the TV.
Oh, and yesterday while I was looking for something completely different I found these cute little __________s that are absolutely perfect for the package! ;D

That sounds horrible! Our basement floods just about every other time it rains, but it's never that bad.

I spent Saturday and Sunday crafting. Finished up all of the smalls & mediums and am about 40% done with the large. If I can get it done before the sendout, I have other things I want to make. I need to quit getting distracted by the neat things I see on Pinterest, though!

Yeah, some things I'm counting as smalls are really more like mediums, but that's OK. One of my mediums is a set of four "smalls" that time-wise should be mediums too, haha. It doesn't really matter to me, because I'm having fun making everything and trying new things.

So I ran out of ______ while working on a medium. I had found it in my mom's stash without any sort of label, so there was no way of getting more. Thus, I had to start over. But after 2 episodes of Star Trek on Netflix, I'm about 3/4 of the way back to where I was before I started over, and probably about 1/2 way done overall. My hand's cramping up now though, so I have to take a break. I'm planning on working on it some more this afternoon and finishing the main part of it so I'll only have the last details to finish.

Finished 1 part of the two-part large last night. Got an idea for another small I will definitely have time to make too, but the large comes first. It's taking a long time, but part of that is because I'm new to this particular craft. I should still be finished with the large by sendout time though! ;D

I was in my car today, at lunch, reading the 'Most Recent Posts' on Craftster, and realized that sendouts for this swap are only a few weeks away!  I had a lot done for this swap already, so I wasn't feeling too worried about the few loose ends that I needed to wrap up to finish the package.  But I gave myself a BIG PUSH tonight, and basically finished up 97% of everything, and wrapped it.  It should be going out next week some time.  I'm so proud of myself, and I think that quaggy will really like what I made/bought her.

Oh no! Sweetie, whatever you're making me isn't worth that-don't hurt yourself, please. Put the whatever it is aside. I've had to wear a hand brace occasionally when I overdid things at work. Slow down, rest up, let your hand heal. And don't worry-send late if you need to, I won't mind.

A few days ago I put some ____________ in my purse in case there was ever a quiet time at work (which usually doesn't happen) then I could work on one of my crafts for this swap.  This afternoon there were hardly any patients come into the clinic so I pulled __________ out and started.  I'm going to take it back tomorrow and work on it more since we have a super slow doctor on and I know there will be time for it.  I was supposed to go on days off tomorrow but found out my counterpart can't work for 3 of the 5 days she's on so I have to cover - bummer, since this was going to be my big push to get things done.

You have got to take care of yourself!  If you use and abuse too much, you could end up having to go under the knife - I know way too many nurses (some of whom cross stitch too so that makes it worse) who are borderline with their carpal tunnel because of repetitive strain. 

On a crafting note, I am done another wee one, and found out that I screwed up on a preceding project - so have to wait for the arrival of the new supplies I ordered to redo some of it.

I have not made anymore progress here.  BF's brother and sister in law came in on Friday from Florida.  We have been doing a lot of site seeing, eating, they have been riding  their Harleys, ( they trailered their down here) shopping......  They were not leaving until Saturday morning but pulled out at 4 am today.  There was a shooting and the niece of my bf's brothers wife was hit in the right chest.  She went through surgery yesterday and is stable.  The whole family on her side came in from N Carolina so they are headed back too.

BF is tired and we are off till Monday so he is gonna do nothing for the next several days and I get to craft.  Will be finishing up my Halloween swap and hitting this one hard.  I know what I still need to do and have all the supplies so it will be a breeze with no work in the way!!!!!!

well this a awful.  I think I'm on the verge of carpel tunnel.  :-\  trying to work on this one item is KILLING me.  :'(  :'(  :'(  I'm going to have to put off this item and possibly other things till friday.  :(  I'll have to get one of those brace things.

Definitely take care of yourself! I took a day off from crafting yesterday since I type all day at work. Of course I'd rather be crafting than working, but work pays the bills and without work I wouldn't be able to afford most crafts. :)

Oh my, school is keeping me VERY busy this semester. That and work, I never seem to have as much free time as I would like. I have two exams next week and  a 5 page paper due next Friday, but I am going to try to get a lot done this weekend sine I will be working a early shift instead of closing like I have the past 5 weeks straight. I really like the way my large is turning out. And I was so in love with one of the mediums I made that I got one for myself too. :) I seriously can't wait to see what everyone has made!

I got 1/2 of one project done at work this morning (slow day when the doctor only sees 8 patients) and I have the afternoon off so I'm going to, hopefully, finish it.  New craft for me and I'm amazing at how long it's taking to make the thing - time wise it's going to end up being a large but size wise it's going to be a small - maybe I'll consider it a medium.

I made progress this afternoon - finished my 'medium' item, made another small item and I'm about to start on another item.  Then, while searching for ________ to make my next project I came across something I had made 'just because' awhile ago and had stuck in my craft cupboard waiting for a time when it would fit a swap and I think it fits this one so I'm going to add it to my growing pile.  I'm feeling so much better about this swap now that I'm making progress.

I finished a medium today, though I think it was more like a large in the end! I kept having to make adjustments because I was totally winging it and wasn't 100% sure I knew what I was doing, hahaha. Overall, though, it turned out really well - both my parents love it. :)

Just got some finishing touches on one item, and maybe a couple extras to throw in, and I'll be ready to send!

Checking in. My partner and I have been chatting on FB for a while now. I'm nearly at the send out stage, I've only got 2 more inches to do on a crochet top, edging on another smaller item and a tassle on something else.

Its all coming together nicely.

I also received yesterday (which was AMAZING as our post center was 2 or 3 doors down from a massive chemical explosion and fire - which is still burning) I will post photos in the gallery later today. My kiddies got a big kick out of what was in the parcel, lol...

I'm starting to wonder if this swap isn't cursed with all of the problems we've all been having. I've been having left eye blurriness for nearly a week now and just went to the eye doctor after work today. He's a lovely doctor, but he has no idea what is causing the blurriness! He says my eye, blood vessels, optic nerve, etc look perfectly healthy, so he's sending me to a specialist on Monday.

I was starting to feel just a tad anxious about this swap as I hadn't made a lot of progress since finishing the large.  Today I made two smalls and a medium and have finally finalised plans for the other items I want to make.  I need to pick up a         for one item, unless there's one hidden somewhere in my stash.  If not, I can pick one up easily tomorrow.

Sigh...I still have to finish three different items that are in various stages of completion. Although two of them are smalls, so that's not too bad. I've been lucky enough to have most of what I needed in my stash.
And the one that I *have* to make still isn't started, although I do have the supplies. That one, I'm also going to make one for the daughter-she saw the (failed) prototype and squeed, so she'll get surprised with one for christmas.
I am really enjoying this swap!

There's a largish item I've got maybe half done, and I can't decide if it'll work out. Or if I'm just wasting my time. Going to set it aside for now and concentrate on other projects. Thinking about just doing another thing altogether.
Good news is the 1st small project I made, that I couldn't figure out the last fiddlely bit-it came together like magic today.

I've been working most of the afternoon on my "large" and I'm about 90% complete! I just need to make one more _______, ______ a couple times, and then _______ in the ________, which is my least favorite part of this craft. However, once I do that bit it means that it's done! To be honest I'm getting tired of these colors, but I think that's because I gave myself a deadline of tonight to finish it so I've only been working on it instead of going from one project to another.  ::)

Oh my. I made myself a craft as a "trial run" of one of my items for aheartofglass. I loved it but didn't understand why I rarely got any comments on it because I thought it was really cool! Haha.

So, tonight, I went to a Bachman & Turner show (think Randy Bachman of the Guess Who, BTO, etc... if that doesn't help, think Takin' Care of Business ;)) and oh. my. gosh. I was front row centre (won the tickets in a radio contest). I happened to have the item on me. Randy Bachman called me backstage and bought it from me.

I'm on a cloud.

Now I need to make another one for myself!!!

just finished the large
I am so proud of it! it is made from two fabrics that are the hardest to work with, my heart literally stopped (more that the usual) when I was at the final and most important step :))

Oh my. I made myself a craft as a "trial run" of one of my items for aheartofglass. I loved it but didn't understand why I rarely got any comments on it because I thought it was really cool! Haha.

So, tonight, I went to a Bachman & Turner show (think Randy Bachman of the Guess Who, BTO, etc... if that doesn't help, think Takin' Care of Business ;)) and oh. my. gosh. I was front row centre (won the tickets in a radio contest). I happened to have the item on me. Randy Bachman called me backstage and bought it from me.

I'm on a cloud.

Now I need to make another one for myself!!!

Wait!? What?!  You posted it *where* and didn't get comments???
You go get that back from him! lol!  :D

Now I'm even MORE curious! and have more than a little swap anxiety....

Haha! I didn't post it anywhere before I sold it to him - I didn't even get pictures of it! I was trying to keep it a secret until you had received, aheartofglass!
Achhhhh. I did get a picture of Randy Bachman & I making the swap, though! Had a hard time keeping it a secret, so if you do a little snooping you may just find the pic! ;)

I thought I was going to be able to get by with a flat rate box, but I've got a wonky shaped item. I'll need to do some digging to find a box.
And I just finished my replacement item! It's the same thing as the epic fail item, only this one, y'know, works. ;D
Not ready to send yet, but it's getting there!

Hahaha! I'm hoping I can find the same fabric to make another for myself. I have curtains made of the same material, but I'm hoarding them in hopes of someday covering the backs of dining room chairs in it!

And... well... maybe it *is* a box... hmmmmmmm. ;)

In any case, no worries, aheartofglass - the one he got was merely my trial run, the one I made you turned out completely different and even better... at least, in my humble opinion!

I have decided that I am determined to get this package in the mail by Friday (a week from today). Now that I finished the super-large, I should definitely be able to whip out the rest of the package fairly quickly. I just have to finish a medium, make two smalls, and add any extras that I have yet to decide on. Tomorrow shall be spent cleaning and then hanging out with my best friend, but Sunday I have all day to be crafty and accomplished! *insert determined smiley here*

I just finished the big-huge (time-wise) item and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I can't even remember when I started on it. Took a lot of effort and broken needles but hopefully, totally worth it.
 Brain no worky for the rest of tonight, all systems shutting down.

ok guys, a quick question:
what would you prefer: a set of 4 things that are the same size, or 4 of the same size plus 2 that are an inch shorter... (measure twice, cut once anyone? :P)

That's a hard one to answer without knowing what 'things' you are talking about but I know you can't say or it would give too much away.  I'd say a set of 4 things that are the same size.

I can't believe people are sending already.  I feel like I still have so much to do. 

And ugh.  I spent tons of time making one item only to seam it together wrong, and then went out yesterday to buy supplies for another item only to get the wrong type.  Plus I had a little group of smalls all together that I can't for the life of me find anymore.  Much cursing was done.  I am happy with the things I do have finished, but I'll probably wind up taking as much time for crafting as possible.  I'm really looking forward to checking out the gallery and seeing what all of you have made :)

I managed almost everything today but I'll be crafting to the last minute (literally)
I am going back to the base in the morning (it's night here right now) and I'll be back home only on send-out date in the morning, so I'll then finish a few last things, wrap it all up and run to the post-office (again, literally) :)

I am here, and am not dead, even though I felt it over the weekend. Maybe two hours after my post about getting distracted by technology, maybe only one, I got hit by a cold coming on like a ton of bricks. Fever, shivers, cough, the works. Still got the sniffles and a cough but the brain fog has finally lifted enough for me to pick up my supplies and do more than stare blankly at them. Thank goodness we have plenty of crafting time left. Good thing is, I'm filling an express post bag, so when I'm done crafting my partner will have her goodies in a day or two. Only, I have bunch of things started, and not much finished at this point so I better get on with it!

Although my cold didn't hit me as hard, I too, am sick with a cold.  Quaggy's package for this swap is sitting in my car right now and will go back in DH's truck tomorrow for him to mail.  Hopefully my nagging him so much about mailing it will make him want to mail it to make me stop!  :P ::)

I hope you feel better soon!!!!  I made another 10 gifties today and have 10 more about 1/2 way through, need more supplies.  Went to Michaels, and Walmart neither store had what I needed.  Found 3 of 1 color at Home Depot.  Headed to Hobby Lobby and if they dont have them I will try Hancocks.  I have another project or two I want to throw in so it will not be mailed yet.  Hope to start working 8 hr days come Tuesday!!!!

I tried to start something three times this weekend and it didn't start to look anything like the pattern.  Sadly, its something I've made several of in the past.  I guess my crafty mojo was just lacking this weekend.  Here's to hoping this week will be better.  :)  I've gotta get busy and get my box full!

Started a cute small this evening but I've had a really tough weekend and although it's not even 8.30pm yet I am TIRED.  Will have to wait until tomorrow.

I did finally pick up a        to make the     today.  It's not something I've tried before, I hope it works out.  I must remember to buy some     from the market for the        I bought today.

Sleepy bye bye time soon though.

Ugh.....I have halfs done and the one bigger piece is having a miserable failing.  I think it takes me longer to do a small then med item.   Go figure that one.
So crossing my fingers I don't have a major redo this weekend... But at least its now and not next week.... Yeah, either way....

AAARRRGGGHHHH.

30 = the number of items that makes me feel like I've done nothing
30 = the last day I should be on the one company I hate the most
30 = the age I'll be in March  >_<

only one (semi)positive there  :P

Krafty, I haven't done anywhere NEAR 30 items! I didn't do half the things I had planned. Silly life interfering with my crafting. Hey-whatever you and I have done will be fine. As your designated stalker, it's been fun crafting for you.
Good luck with the last day thing.
And you'll be 30? Girl, I have stuff in my stash that's older than you! I just turned 51.
You whippersnapper. ;D

I will not have swap anxiety, I will not have swap anxiety, this is my 109th swap so I will not have swap anxiety, who cares that someone made 30 items, I will not have swap anxiety!  Yeah right, who am I kidding!  I will have swap anxiety, why did I join a swap with no guidelines??

Still have to find a box so I can get my items in the mail and then maybe I'll relax about this because it will be too late to add anything else.

I am so sorry!!!  What I made was quick and easy, nothing big here I promise Just 10 sets of 3 and a few extra things!  All this says is I live to craft, I am 51 and have over 30 years of crafty experience, been sewing since I was 13!  See what yall have to look forward to>  All my items are sewn and I am pretty darn fast at it! Assembly line stuff!I have a very stressful job, no kids at home and this is my hobby. I work, sleep and craft for the most part.  Pretty dull!!!!

I did not get my parcel today so off to check what the postal service says they did with it.  Maybe it will be here when I get home tomorrow!

I finished up everything for my package! Now I need to write a note, wrap everything up, and find a box. The box is going to be the hard part - I used to find my boxes in my parents' basement, but with the flooding in central PA, there was 15 inches of water which destroyed the stash of boxes. Going to the post office tomorrow anyway, hopefully they have a box that I can fit everything in.

I will most likely be sending the 7th as well (awaiting a check). My crafting time has been hit hard as I had to completely clear all of my craft stuff out of my room bc we have termites! We got them treated about 2 months ago and they are back...... only in my window. The whole house to eat and they come back in my window. grrrr. The bug guy is coming tomorow (which is why I had to clear my stuff out) so I should be rolling again soon after.....No craft supplies were hurt in this event....

I made two smalls last night while watching tv. They turned out neat! I'm having trouble finding a box though, due to the weird size of my large. I think the last item is going to have to be tweaked just so it will fit in the box with the other things.

I finished my medium and large last night, which is much sooner than I thought I would!  I think my medium turned out really well; unfortunately my large isn't quite as awesome as I had hoped it would be, but hopefully my partner will still like it.  Also got a couple of very small things done - feeling much better about where I'm at now!!

Hope Ms Fluffypants' Wist is up-to-date!!! I confess that I actually something for her... partly because I wanted one too!  :D
The 2 things I made I am quite pleased with - now 1 more (maybe) because I'm trying a new technique and if it turns out, she will be the first recipient of my first effort at it... ( how nebulous and mysterious is that?!?!  ;))

This has been a fun swap but I think I have more anxiety over this one than most because of the "no points" system! I have a great and fun partner though - lots of whimsey in her wist and her personality!

now I just hope she likes what I made...............................

PS - no post on Saturday Ms Fluff  :-[ I'm sure it'll be here tomorrow though!

Still crafting here. Unfortunately I had some fever yesterday. :( Today morning I didn't even dare to check because it's quite important day today and I can't miss work. But I seriously hope that I won't get sick now because then all the things that I have planned for this week will be hard to arrange. Even finishing the items for this swap.

*sigh* Almost everyone around me has been sick already and for about one month I have been afraid for the same disease to attack me. And of course I get it when it's the worst time ever. Well I'm glad that it's nothing special, just a regular autumn flu and fever but still. It could have waited for one more week at least.

Don't even want to try uploading pics in case I lose connection part way through.  If you want to post pics of your amazing items zzdia, please do.  I am going to be crafting for you right up to the deadline.

I'll have to go to the library now to look up the pattern I wanted.

I will be online on my blackberry to send appropriate messages to organisers.

I set out my package for indigo_roses yesterday before I left for work.

Hoping that it gets picked up today! I wasn't too happy with my dad. Now indigo_roses will get it at least a day later. So much for trying to send early!

Every time I say I'm gonna send tomorrow I get set back another day! I finally finished everything tonight, then I was looking at one item and ended up taking it completely apart! I wish they would make a version of E-6000 that dries instantly. Anyway, I reconstructed it and I plan on taking better pictures in the morning when the sun comes up and before the mailman comes. And I'm NOT gonna send tomorrow...;)

Sent! And I just realised I never got a photo of the final item, so I hope it makes it there intact!

Dropped it off at the PO this morning.  Reused a great sturdy yogurt box I had.  Hopefully it makes it there safely.

Argh, the suspense is killing me. I'm supposed to be receiving hayleyhandmade's package and a spiffy new camera that I won in a competition, but both are taking so long to arrive. Curse you An Post! It took NINE days for a letter to travel 3 miles to get to me so I might be waiting for a while :(
