YAY!

I will need to take a day or two to fill out the questionnaire.

My son had his very first asthma attack today and we spent the whole morning in the ER.
(this makes it sound as if he took his first steps or rode a bike for the first time; sheesh!)
He's doing well, but I need to play catch-up on chores tonight.

We've had Totoro in the car for a couple of days. So, I get to "listen" to it a lot.
I just love listening to the CatBus!!!

I'm planning on hosting a blog party themed around Studio Ghibli - I'm kind of excited about trying it.

For the time being, though, I'm sipping a cup of tea - hoping that I'm not catching the cold my boyfriend just kicked. Ugh - he got fired from his job today - I think I'm more torn up about it than he is. -.- Underemployment in a job that is working you to the absolute limit - without giving you the benefits you get just...

Grr. I've been angry all day.

I survived the camping/mothers Day weekend extravaganza!!

Yay...we are so close to partnering. Just 5 more days :) I have been searching for ideas and making a folder of things I hope I get to make. There are so many awesome inspirational ideas. Anyone have anything they would just LOVE to receive? Seen anything awesome that has been made that just made your jaw drop.

The daughter's spring ballet recital (la te dah!) is that day and there are 2 performances.

I'll be able to log on after I put the kiddos to bed around 8:30 central time at the latest.
But to be sure I will log in as soon as humanly possible!!!

I sent in my questionare! :) I kept debating about it but there was no way I could resist a Miyazaki swap. :D  I have probably only seen about half the movies, so this will give me an excuse to watch the rest. My favorites are Howl's Moving Castle, Totoro, and Spirited Away. But I also love Kiki's Delivery Service and Whisper of the Heart. My friend keeps bugging me to watch Naussica so I think I'm going to watch that this weekend.

I made alot of progress last night but then I hit a huge wall in the project. But after lots of whining and feeling sorry for myself...I have developed a plan!

As soon as I can get the toddler to sleep I will see how it works out :)

Wow - not too much on my front as far as crafts go. I finally have an excuse to watch Princess Mononoke - not that I needed one. But :P It's one of my partner's favourite movies, so I need to get up to speed with that!

Other than that, enjoying the sunshine on my end of the world. Oh - summer, it's been too long!

Well crafting was going pretty good until I got a request from a family member for some crafty goodies in celebration for a new baby joining the family :D So I'm a bit distracted at the moment lol. But Sent outs aren't for another month so I think I should still have plenty of time for to finish up for this swap ;)

Ok...I can wait. Honest, I can. I think...

I am making two packages....

so far I have made a large and a small for one and a large and two mediums for the other. I would say I have 3 or 4 more things to craft ...one large...and then I will be shopping for fun add-ins! :D

I really devoted a lot of time to the swap today. It was a lot of fun. I might carry on into the evening. :)

You are a craftin' machine Smiley  :D

I have supplies, ideas sketched out and a whole weekend in which to craft (barring as little time as I can manage on chores?!?) - watched Spirited Away again - No Face, Stink Spirits, parents into pigs/giant babies into hamsters and boys into dragons - what's not to love!! Oh and cute candy eating soot sprites - Miyazaki is the master  :D

Sooooo... I didn't go to sleep last night. I stayed up all night crafting and trying to fix things. Glad to say I had a lot of success :) And I think I might just be ready to send. Looking at everything I know I've gone over the points :P but I want to keep crafting dammit. Sending now may be the only thing to keep me from going crazy overboard lol. Ah, I have a busy day tomorrow, so I will wait until Sunday and see what I think about my package so far. If I like it all... then I MAY be sending on Monday... maybe lol.

Same here!!! I grabbed the large that I thought could not be saved and it was saved after hours of work last night. Weird coincidence. If you are good to send on Monday, I can send that day, too. :) I just have one more thing to put together for you and it is something I have made about 8 times so its a no-brainer.

Im also ready to send to you on Monday, RadStamps. :) I did a little cuteness shopping for your daughter today and polished off the package. It looked "gappy" when I laid it all out before the shopping trip.

Also, my day trip to DC turned into me getting kidnapped and taken to Maryland by a few friends for 3 days. I JUST walked back into house a few moments ago. So I did NOT ship today but I plan to ship tomorrow since my work hours are going to go crazy for the next few weeks starting Thursday.

I really need to share this because I am SO AMAZED!

I was trying to peel a sticker off a ___ for an element in this swap.
All this dumb residue stayed on and I was very grrrr about it.
Enter pinterest...

Apparently, if you spray Cooking Spray on sticker residue (on glass, plastic, or metal) it wipes right off.
I'm here to say...
IT TOTALLY WIPES RIGHT OFF!!!

Today is a win!

Ugh I hear you! I'm in midterm mode for my summer classes, registered for fall and applied to GRADUATE!! woo-hoo! and VBS was last week. I got behind on cleaning, crafting, and schoolwork. blech. Which is why I made the crafting period so long. There is always so much going on in the summer!

Details are holding me up - want to get finished so bad and post off to Ryn. I am happy the crafts are turning out the way I pictured them - that's always a good start  :D

Still making progress! I'm spending today finishing up my large item and will work on the other item either tomorrow or next weekend. I'm liking how it's turning out!

My progress is way slower than I wanted it to be. Everything's working out really well so far. Two of my projects are well on their way to completion, but one is still an idea in my head. I don't have any days off until next weekend (working two full time jobs :( )so hopefully I can do a crafting marathon next weekend and get things done.

I'm sad to say my progress had to come to a halt over this weekend as my professor up and decided to change the exam day from wednesday to monday! >:(  As for my projects, the large item ended up getting messed up, so I have to redo it  :'(

And i am one project away from being ready to send. Rethinking my last piece. i think I know what it's going to be ;D But you never know what will happen when you're crafting, do you?

I will be ready to send by Monday. :)

One of my days off this weekend was taken away from me so I could join a new training program, so it's been tough to find time. But I've still made progress, 2 items down 1 to go. I wanted to send early, but it looks like it'll just be on time for me.

My one class is completely kicking my ass and I'm switching jobs within the company I work for, so things are completely crazy right now, but I am going to try my hardest to make sure everything is sent out on time.

I finally got things under control and feeling super excited. I'm looking to send out this coming up weekend or right on time Monday.

Still here!
I plan to ship on Friday while the kids are at Grandma's (YAY!!!). I always enjoy the post office more that way...I'm awful!

Bad news for me and my crafting, though....
I sprained my thumb on my dominant hand!
Lifting your dad's way too full grocery bags for him might be harmful to your crafting. Be fore-warned!

I'm (not so) patiently waiting for the splint to arrive.

Hi all,

I wish I could have been more active in this swap (aka active at all!) but as a youth services librarian in the full-on craziness of a Summer Reading Program, finding time to post has been next to impossible. I have however been crafting away in my minuscule free time and am shipping today- hint: lots of Howl & Totoro goodness. Pics coming soon and I can't wait to see what all of you have been working on!

-Lauren

It's been one of those weeks. I ended up getting sick when I was going to send. And I didn't even get to enjoy my days off this week.  :-\  But the package is officially on it's way and should be there Monday!

I RECIEVED TODAY!! It's such a beautiful package - and it got here safe and sound. Usually shipping gets here fast - I live right between two big cities, so it's not too bad of a hassle. I AM GETTING NERVOUS ABOUT MINI_M00SE GETTING HERS, THOUGH. e.e I hope it makes it to you soon

/so much swap anxiety!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Just wanted to let everyone know I will be catching up on feedback tomorrow! I had quite a week. A close friend deployed leaving a 35wk pregnant wife and guess who went into labor the next day? LOL I was watching her other kiddos most of the week.
