Post by: Renstar on April 01, 2014 03:40:25 AM
I have been trying to decide whether to join this swap, the fact that I have a board seems to sway me towards yes!!
Although my skullys are not restricted to this board, clothes are in the clothes board, accesories... etc.

http://www.pinterest.com/renstar1/skullys-hearts/

I will ponder some more

(It is fun to see so many similar pins across people's boards!)

I always feel a little like a detective when I get a new partner, sifting through their craftster lives for useful information...maybe that's because I watch too many crime shows.  BTW, to get in the mood, today I wore my Jason Webley shirt

It's WrestleMania weekend and I'm in a professional wrestling household. While I've been thinking of what to do here and there, I won't really get to start brainstorming and buying until tomorrow when it's all over lol. I can say, I know at least one thing that I definitely want to make happen, I just have to figure out how....

I have been planning, now I need to get started, not entirely sure what the end product will be yet, but it seems like it might be coming together, (in my head at least).

I hope this will manifest into something cool.

Does anyone else have the problem whereby you tell your real life partner what your plan is for a swap item and they are like 'No, I want that, make it for me!'

Gah!

Post by: rantyhippie on April 08, 2014 09:42:13 AM

Gah!

Only the little ones sometimes. With most of my Amis I have to seal them up at night time after daysies been put to bed cuz she thinks they're hers  :D

Gonna head out for a bit of supplies today. I know what I want to make and one of things is something I've never done, but totally excited to try! Hopefully it comes together!


Title: Re: Skull Swap; Signups to April 4, sendouts May 5
Post by: rantyhippie on April 08, 2014 04:18:13 PM
I was setting up for another thing I am going to make. I had it all laid out on the kitchen table when disaster struck.....in the form of a two year old with an ink pen.....back to the drawing board for me!

On the plus side I did get a small thing finished, although it wound up looking more cartoonish than I wanted it to.....

(edited to add): I had to step away from the large...it was frustrating me.....will go back to it tomorrow...


Title: Re: Skull Swap; Signups to April 4, sendouts May 5
Post by: jennythor on April 08, 2014 04:29:50 PM
haven't heard back from my partner yet,
but finally sent out my other swap yesterday,
figuring out what I'm doing for this one :D
exciting!

Title: Re: Skull Swap; Signups to April 4, sendouts May 5
Post by: MaxParadise on April 10, 2014 12:44:23 PM
Started on something yesterday. The thing I've never done before. But I'm really liking how it's coming out! I just hope I'm doing it "right", lol! But it's fun, I think I may have found a new craft to get into =). I should be done with it today, depending on if I run out of ______ or not.

I've been browsing online for certain things. Haven't had a chance to get out and shop the real world. I know what I want to do and how I'm going to execute it, I just ended up picking up a few unexpected work days this week so I haven't had the chance to get the ball rolling.

Still crafting away! I hope to complete one item today, then the other is half way done. After that, I want to do one other little goodie!

One of my wee crafty items is all done! The rest I need to get sorted - I need to hunt down some supplies....I feel this will be a weekend of MUCH crafting time *hurrah*

I've almost completed the first item.  There was a happy accident that I'm pretty pleased with :)

Got the supplies to complete the last little thing I want to make.  Haven't had a lot of crafting time this week so my medium is still sitting about 80% done.  I have a 3 day weekend coming up though so I am hoping to finish everything up then and send next week.

Still crafting away! One project I'm still working one. It's taking a bit longer than I thought, but it's been quite fun to work on =). I better get crackin', Thursday's my birthday so I'm going to be busy at the end of the week, haha!

My medium is about half way done, and one of my smalls just needs a few minutes work. :D We agreed to do another small, so I'm still planning that.

Woah,  Great Going Lindyv321.

I am still working through my ideas... Work has slowed play significantly.

I'm working on a piece that is going to be incredibly difficult to part with. In fact, for the first time ever, I may have to swap something that isn't one of a kind. I might have to make one for me too  :D

Finally done with my medium....it seems like it took forever! I'm going to get started on the next item this afternoon. Its rainy, dreary, and cold outside....the perfect crafting day!  ;)

I was able to send early because I had a sick son I had to stay home with a few weeks ago and that gave me lots of extra crafting time.


Title: Re: Skull Swap; Signups to April 4, sendouts May 5
Post by: rantyhippie on April 25, 2014 02:40:36 PM
putting everything together for one item. I am completely done with the other thing.

Post by: Renstar on April 27, 2014 02:42:17 AM
I kept changing my mind, so have several in-flight ideas!

In spite of that, one is complete and I'm hoping to finish the other today. Whichever I feel will look better once complete.

Work is still 'In Progress', had a change of mind breakthrough yesterday that progressed one item quicker than before, let's hope the pace keeps up.

One of my things is all finished and one almost done.  I had to put it off because I was moving, but now I'm in my new place and working away.  I will probably send out on Cinco de Mayo, which I think is fitting ;)

Now in my bag for posting tomorrow.

Sorry.
