Ceda, I looked at your profile and you have a clean swap career. It's okay to take a swap break now and again. If you're ready to jump back in, I don't see any reason you wouldn't be allowed.

I will get my sign up in, maybe even later today. I just received a dream catcher in the 10 minute swap. My daughter was so jealous. Maybe I'll do a practice one for her.

Hi Ceda!  My apologies for not answering your question sooner.  I've had my in-laws visiting for the long weekend, and was only able to get on and check the thread now that they're gone!  :)

To answer your question, I have no problem with you having been inactive on Craftster for a while and will be thrilled to have you join our swap.  :)

But just know that you do have to stop by and post in the thread once a week to let folks know you are still around.  The Mods are diligent about checking on this, and will drop people from a swap if they have signed up, but never posted anything in the main swap thread, after signing up.  If you don't feel chatty, that's okay.  Just stop by and say something like, "Still working & planning to send on time."

maraschino, keep checking back.  If we have an odd number of people on the 7th when the swap is due to close, I might extend signups by 1 day to get us to an even number.  If there's an opening for you, I'll try to remember to send you a PM.

Since I'm feeling all crafty and itching to create, I decided to make a practice dreamcatcher before the swap.  You can see it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433711.0#axzz333KteD5V

I was thinking of taking a break too, but this swap is so tempting. Especially since it's so different from most of the swaps I do. The dark side may win this battle.  ;)

I have to say that the crafting of my dreamcatcher went much faster than I thought it would.  And it was quite simple to do.  Much of my time was just in picking out the supplies I wanted to use.  All in all, I'm hoping this will be a sweet and simple swap that won't put pressure on anyone.

I've never done two swaps at the same time to make sure but this one is really tempting me. I know I want to do the Tolkienswap but this one is so awesome too. Pff decisions :p I should have the time, I'll probably end up deciding close to the deadline.

Thank you dear!  A friend was over the other night and she was so excited about my new dreamcatcher, that I offered to make her one too, while waiting for partnering.  :D

UGGHHH there are several awesome swaps going on right now! I signed my kids up for the kids swap, but I would also love to make a dream catcher. I've been looking at them for a while now and studying on them. I may just have to sign up. What to do, what to do. I'll think on it.

Post by: Mistress Jennie on June 07, 2014 05:58:08 AM
P.S.  I'll be closing signups between 5:30-7:30pm, Central Standard Time, tonight.  The reason for the imprecise timing is that we have to pick up a friend from the airport, and bring her back to our house to get her car.  I don't want to be "late" if she lingers to tell us about her trip.  If you are trying to sign up this evening, and are worried about making it in "on time" send me a PM first, asking me to "hold the door" for you!  ;D

Ok, partners are listed on the first page, and questionnaires have been forwarded to their respective parties.  If you didn't receive your partner's questionnaire, or you have some concern over partnering, such as allergies or shipping preferences, please let me know.  Otherwise, have fun stalking tonight!   ;D

Started the hoop and was ready to move on but then I came up with a maybe cool idea. I have some extra hoops, so I might try with another one. I've been scavenging for embellishments and I have a little project in mind that I think will add some fun stuff.

I've got two hoops started.  One needs it's web, and the other already has it.  Sadly, I'm not loving the way the web on that one looks.  Might take it apart and retry it.  Or I might put it on hold and start stringing the other one...

Oooh, me too! I have a kid free weekend to try out my idea, too!

Woohoo! I'm going to try to work this weekend, too! Lately it feels like my weekends have been busier than my weekdays, how is that possible?!

I'm about half finished with the main item; with hopes of finishing it this weekend.  I need to take it with me to the store for color matching purposes.  I'm pretty sure I know what the small will be and that is under control at well.  Hope everyone has a wonderful and crafty weekend!

I think I'm happy with my dream catcher for the most part, I have to out some finishing touches on it and start the other item. I'm excited though!

Spent my afternoon making bits and bobs to go on the dream catcher. I've just about assembled all the pieces and parts and hope to put it together tomorrow. I have to wait for something to dry first...

Finished one of my two dreamcatchers.  The other is about 90% done, but I'm fussing over the finishing touches.  Still haven't decided which to send.  Did make the small to go with it.  :D 

Remember, Send Outs are MONDAY!

I finished the dream catcher, except for MAYBE one little thing. Still need to figure out the extra. I have a cool idea, but I'm not sure I can finish by Monday.

I'm thinking of taking Friday off from working at the house to get dharma's dream catcher done. I'll likely be sending right on the send date.

It's been so hard not to post Instagram spoilers, dharma!! I'm loving how it's coming together.

I've been stalking your thread. I can't wait for the gallery to see what you guys come up with. I've been wanting to make a dreamcatcher forever. Is there anywhere to buy the leather cord other than the craft store? I was looking the last time I was there and it looked like it was going to take about $20 worth just to go around the outside of the hoop. Or is there something else you can use?

I'm headed to the post office shortly. After taking a million crappy pictures on my recently acquired refurbished phone, and then wrapping up the package, I realized the plastic was still on the camera. I had to unwrap, re-take much better pics and re-wrap the package.

What? I gotta instagram that shtuff.

Since I got up at 4:00 this morning, I'm headed to bed now.  If any of you send me a PM, I'll get it early tomorrow morning.  Please don't think I'm ignoring you!  :D  Just getting some much needed sleep.

My dream catcher is in Olympia! I hope my post lady has her act together and gets it to me this afternoon. I'm headed out to see Slightly Stoopid and Stephen Marley this evening, and I won't be back until Saturdayish. If it doesn't get here, I have a locked mailbox, so it should be fine, it's just then I have to waaaaaaiiiiiit.
