Seriously considering this one.
I've been a fan for years...more of the classic ones. I went through a dark period of playstation until the Wii invaded my home.
Then it was like old friends came back to visit.

Now my daughter loves Mario too. Especially Yoshi (yay) and Princess Peach (yuck).
She calls it the "Running Man" game!
First time she said it, I thought "WHO LET YOU WATCH A SCHWARTZENEGGER MOVIE!?!?!?!"
Then, I got the reference.
 :D

Thinking about this one.. I love Mario, as does my fiance. I made some Mario block shelves to store his video games, and they would really love some crafty company.. Once I finish up some of my other swap commitments, I will probably join this one!

Well, its pretty quiet here, so, hmmmm.....how about we chat about our faves?  My kids LOVE Mario and Luigi, I like them both, but prefer to play as Mario, Luigi jumps weird.  They love Bowser too, I like Dry Bones.  I think hes cute heehee.  I kind of have a funny story, when I was pregnant this last time, we found out it was a girl and Aidan (my then 6 year old) just kept calling her Daysie from the day I said she was a girl and it stuck.  Shes now Daysie and we always asked him where he got the name from.  he said he just liked it.  Cool and he loves the fact that he named his baby sister, BUT now, if you ask him where the name came from, he admits its from Mario!!!!!!  UGH!!! lol, my daughter is named after an UNpopular video game character, lol.  Oh well, at least I spelt it different!!  :D

To be fair, none of the other names would have been great for a little girl - Mario, Bowser, Birdo, Blooper, Chomp... lol

I've always loved Yoshi, and when my boyfriend won me a Yoshi at the show he got a LOT of brownie points! When I was little, I was always heartbroken when I had to leave Yoshi behind, and more recently, in the games where you don't get to keep him at the end of the level? So mean! :(

I'm seriously considering signing up (summer break is coming up and I don't have summer classes for once, yay!). Once again, money is the x-factor of whether or not I'll be able to.

Well, technically theres only 1 day left of signups, but I was thinking of extending them for a week hoping more people will sign up.  Is that cool with you guys??  I'm really surprised more people haven't signed up  :(  haha, it would make partnering easy!!!

I can't believe there's so few people, either! Doesn't everybody love Mario? What was wrong with their childhoods? :(

I'm happy for it to be extended if everybody else is - as it is I keep signing up for swaps without considering how much crafting I'm getting myself in for, so I won't exactly be lacking in things to do in the meantime ;)

Went to fill out my questionnaire and realized that I will be out of town during sendouts, and the week and a half prior to sendouts, and with my work schedule the next 3 weeks, I wont have much time at all to craft. So sad, but I dont want to send items that were rushed to be crafted :( I hope you get some last minute sign ups though, and if there is another round I will totally be in!

I was thinking about it all day trying to figure out how I could make it work.. and I should have plenty of time with that extra day off from Memorial Day weekend. AND, worse case, I can bring some supplies with me on my trip although Id be limited in what I can bring- but I can make some last minute finishing touches, and mail when I get back in the morning on 6/16 if for some reason Im not done by 6/8! And I totally couldnt resist all the Mario goodness- especially since this is a swap my fiance will love since he loves Mario Bros!

OK, well, if no one else does sign up, we would have 7 people so we would have to do a round robin.  Is that OK with everyone?  I've got potential partners already!! (But I still hope we get more people)

Hopefully more people do sign up! if not, I have no objections to a round-robin.
I've spend the last few days making a mario pinterest board and finding awesome crafting ideas. I can't see why more people aren't pumped about this!

How can you pass up Mario? Forget those other swaps! I still can't believe we don't have like fifty people signed up  :o

I know! But I'm a serial flaker in school projects so I had to lay down some very strict anti-flaking rules for my swaps. And 5 points is just too much for me right now... I trust there will be mario/nintendo swaps in the future as well  ;)

I have to applaud you for being able to keep to one swap at a time!  Or even 2!!  I can never seem to do that  :D

It's nothing to applaud to since I'm only participating my second swap... But it's almost impossible! All these great swaps just popping up all the time! And still I can't stay of this board, AAAAARGH!!  ;D

I woke up at the crack of dawn and wittled out some plans. Now I just have to tear myself away from minecraft, they put it on xbox360 and I am pretty sure I am addicted. I've slept three hours. That's how good it is.

I played a mario kart racing game at a Dave & Busters. It marks the first time I've seen it sober, and the first time I've played it :)
I've stalled a little in crafting (trip to Houston for the fiance). I have a full list of what I'm doing, but I'm unhappy with it as a final product. It for sure meets the points requirement, but it feels incomplete.

Ive had that happen a few times too, its a pain if its something that took a while to do. Sometimes you can get away with painting it, though its hard to cover up dark brown with white.

I wonder if nail polish would do a better job, I always fine when in doubt cover it with nail polish, every gameboy or videogames console always had a thick cover of glittery nailpolish when I was a kid. I like my dsi xl too much to do that to it though!

I know what you mean by "keep thinking you can do more"..i keep adding things that Im making to the list, though i can group like 3 things into a cluster since they all go together lol. I'm making things for my partners kids since there was some cute things on her pinterest and even though she was fine with the package just being for the kids i couldnt do that...everyone needs some awesome mario things :D Im pretty sure Im over the 5 points but thats ok Im enjoying making everything

London sounds amazing. I'm having abroad-envy;  I had to miss my debate teams' trips to rome and canada earlier this year.
I bought ALL my supplies for everything, brought it home, then realized I left my sewing machine back in Houston :( the crafts that I can do until I go fetch it are the ones I was waiting to do.

Have 3 things in progress- drying so I can do more on them. Started a 4th thing that is turning out really good- and have one of my extras also! Still have 3 labor intensive things I've gotta get started on, although 2 of them and the three things drying now can all go with me on my trip next week. Looks like I won't be sending out until the sendout day- even though I was hoping to send sooner!

Sorry for the lack of check-ins gals, I got swept away in summer (and lack of summer classes for the first time since I started college). I have a small-medium and a medium done, and a lot more to do (but I'lll definitely get it done by send-outs!). Somehow in a cleaning ffrenzy I seemed to have lost an extra. Usually that doesn't happen post-cleaning, but fingers crossed that it shows up!
