Working on narrowing down my geekdoms/fandoms, it's always so difficult!  ;D

What's everyone else chosen?

What's everyone else chosen?

That is super hard!  I am kind of open/vague with mine, so it can encompass more stuff.  :D  Like, TV (with a list of shows), cute and kawaii things, space/the universe, science/technology/computers, craftiness.

Welcome to the swap, storerboughtcreations!  I'm so glad you joined! 

I'm looking forward to more questionnaires over the next few days!  I plan to have partners ready on Monday morning.

So excited to be paired with LovelyMiss! I have a bazillion ideas for you. Now I need to narrow it down. I'm not sure if that's possible. :p

Hey there, rockingbearranch! *waves* I'm so looking forward to starting stalking you as soon as I get home :) (which sounds creepier than I meant it)

Meh, stalk all you want. Just don't judge me too harshly for those google satellite images.  :D I have ideas and free time. I may get started today.

Hey everyone!  How's the crafting/stalking/contemplating going?  I've been short on actual crafting time, but I've gotten a lot of thinking done and hope to start soon.  :D

Same! I've decided on what I'm making, just haven't started working on it yet, but I'll get there!

I still haven't decided what to make. I have it narrowed down to 20 things though :p

20 sounds like a whole lot fewer than a bazillion!!

Post by: Inselaeffchen on January 25, 2016 05:17:34 AM
I've set my eyes on something. Time wise it would definitely be a medium. But not sure on the other explanations for medium? Given I'm sending to roler I'm trying to keep it fairly "light", too. So might add some extras ... ;)

I've done my planning, and I'm getting started this afternoon. I had lots of fun looking into rbr's fandoms.

Time wise is good for me! No need to spend extra money on anything just for guidelines! And light is great too. :)

I'm done. We've had workers here that I have to babysit so it has given me plenty of time to craft.

Woohoo!  Well, on the crafting part anyway.  :)  Hope the worker part went well too, though.  :D  I can't wait to see all the nerdy creations.

We have a sender, so here is the link to the GALLERY (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=442687).  The link can also be found in the first post of this thread.  Status tracking is over in the Gallery, too.

We have a little over two weeks of crafting time left!

I finally picked what I'm making for the swap. Since it doesn't give away what I'm making, here is a photo of the insanely small stitches I'm working with. I think I need to invest in a magnifier. :)
