So I'm thinking about joining, but I'm mostly a paper crafter and I can't think of a lot that I could make for this swap... some ideas I have are a meditation journal (or dream journal, etc), wall art, and art magnets... any interest out there for that type of thing?

Being new to yoga means this swap would be great to help you grow in your newly discovered love.

Crying Goddess it would be great to have you join the swap. What is your hesitation?

I normally don't like papercrafts, but I've been taking a meditation class and I think a positive thoughts journal would be very useful and a chakra poster. I don't know why but when I'm doing yoga nidra I can never remember where they are... :|

I have 5/5 listed on my profile...but I have already sent and had received 2 of those and another 2 I don't have partners for yet. So...really its just one right now. But I do have two partners in that swap. I angel'd someone because she received a partner that houses kitties and she is allergic. It will be fun, though!! Miyasaki stuff.

The cottage was good, thanks for asking!  We're going back this weekend and can expect beautiful weather, a nice bonus because we have some biking and canoeing that needs to get done.  =)

The large I've been working on is near completion!  Just have to tie up some loose ends and finish up minor details.  I like the way it's turning out and hope my partner feels the same.

One of the gifts I created turned out a lot longer than expected, too, unless my partner happens to have 10 foot high walls.  Then it might fit ok...  =)

Just a couple more things to do then the large is done and on to a small.  I also have an extra to squeeze in the package.  I'm hoping to ship by the weekend.

Im not progressing well at all. I have decided what I am making and even started two of the projects a little. But its getting warm here and the hubby has been out of town this week. I really thought him being out of town would make this like "crafting week"...but it has not. LOL

Its past time to get myself in gear. Maybe a pot of coffee will help...

Argh.  I finally was feeling in the groove with what I was doing and then it hasn't worked out quite as planned.. I need to start again this weekend after I pick up _____.  I like to send early but I'm going to use all the time for this one...

I hear you amnesia. I always send early...but unless I am stricken with some insomnia that is not going to happen this time.

Never know...there is a reason for everything, right?

Crafting away for my partner.

I might even try a new technique for her

I like sending out early but lately it just hasn't happened!  My large is half done.  I finished the first half last night.  Now I have 12 days to finish the second half.  Shouldn't be too hard.  I have some other goodies to work on as well.  This has been a really fun swap to craft and plan for!  We must have a round 2!

I finished a small today! Woo!!

Tonight I will finish another little one then I will get to work on my large. The large is in the works...the materials are all collecting in one place and its all designed and such. Just have to do the work now. :) That's the fun part so it should fly...

I have now finished three small/mediums and I made a nice dent in my large last night!! How long it takes will totally depend on getting these little crazies to sleep on schedule for the next few nights....and not running out of coffee.

How is everybody doing with their crafting? I'm getting a lot of positive energy from this thread, and people seem to be enjoying the theme. I'm so glad, and I'll certainly consider running this one again in the future. Would love some feedback from participants, as I'm a first time swap host (is that the correct term?)

I shipped to Ffrogg today!!! Woo...it was almost not going to happen. We are  getting the house ready to sell and I have this insane three year old son. But in the end it happened! I feel so productive!!! I will send the tracking in a bit. For now I am basking in my "got to the post office" glory.
