Woodland themes are always my most favorite!! I'll be out of town until Monday, but I'm definitely interested in joining this swap and will have to work on my questionnaire next week (or maybe during lunch if work slows down today) :D Very appropriate first swap of the new year for me! I'm glad some of my crafty friends pointed it out :) (I can't contain my excitement right now!)

Oh, it's so awful to be the organizer and lose power...or be a swapper and lose power, or well, Losing power just isn't much fun. Thank goodness for awesome co-orgs for sure.

I lost power a several times over the weekend because of falling ice/limbs in the area, so I haven't been able to spend much time online. I'm glad we already have partners and look forward to getting started :) I already have a thing or two in mind for Treemoon!

Partners!!  Yay!!  
Time for some friendly stalking and planning and outrageous ideas that need to be reined in (if not outright discarded because it's outside my talents.   ;D).  I tend to get carried away and occasionally sent off on distracting side jaunts at the beginning of swaps.

Started on project 1 last night.  It will be the one that takes the longest.  Come on Friday so sad it is only Monday!  Did get a bit more done after work today so slow progress is being made!

I'm torn between 2 larger projects and must choose one!  Oh, how to decide!  


While I make up my mind, here's a random video I cam across while researching my partner's favorite woodland creatures.

this would be a distracting side jaunt from my research.   :)

More progress made last night but today I work the late shift so no craft time for me.  I have completed a big chunk of theis project.  It is being done in reverse of what I am use to so it ia hard to judge how much more time will be involved.  Ready for stage 2 which I should get done this weekend and then the finish should be fast.

Been pottering away at my first craft, which I think will be my main piece, and going to get a bit more work on it done tonight. I think it is going to turn out really nicely - if all goes to plan!
Still brainstorming what to make for my second piece, have a few vague ideas but nothing has really screamed out at me yet. Might wander round the craft store on my next day off and see what I can find.

Sorry about the flop that isn't fun. I bought fabric without having a pattern just the idea in my head and now I am not sure if I bought enough and still can't find the pattern I want. I have the 2nd small one in my head and some supplies pulled out for it so I keep staring at the supplies and wondering how and what I will do exactly. :)

I did that once. For a Halloween swap my partner said they like Tim Burton films. I spent a lot of time making one of the sculptures from the Beetle Juice movie out of fabric, only to learn, as I was almost finished, that she actually liked all of his movies, except for that one. *head smack* Yeah. We've been there. :D

As far as this swap goes, I am still letting the ideas simmer. I don't have a slid direction yet, but it will come. :D

Well the craft store has settled my indecision for me.  They didn't have what I needed for the other item I was thinking of making and it would take too long to order.  I've started on the other idea I had and I think it's turning out well.  I just hope that my partner likes it!
Now to figure out which small idea to choose from!

What I thought was a small, is turning out to be a large...or extra large... but weirdly, what my large was going to be is much smaller than I thought. Still, taking longer than I expected.

very slow progress. I bought a piece that I do not believe will work. I may go back to square one, and follow the tute completely without reinventing the wheel. I may make two, as this is my first time making one of these, and the first may be a flop. We shall see

Love the owl!

My partner has sent already!!  Wah!!!!!  I'm still working away on my second project which hasn't fully coalesced.  I hope it works out but if not, I'll be back to the drawing board.  It involves a skill that I have little confidence in, hence my hesitation.  I kind of like the rather rustic look it has so far.  Fingers crossed.

Noelle, have you seen this cam out of Georgia?  She's laying on 2 eggs.  Available to watch 24-7.  Gets a little more active around hatching time and sometimes a bit much to watch with what they bring home for dinner.  But interesting at least and sometimes addictive.  http://hdontap.com/index.php/video/stream/great-horned-owl-cam

I'm hoping to get to the post office this week so I can send my brother's birthday gift at the same time as this package. I just need one more "ingredient" to finish my small so I can pack everything up :)

Finished the small this morning. Though, all things said and done, both my items seemed to come out bigger than intended ;) 

I hope my partner enjoys them :)


Hoping to send out by the weekend if I don't find something else to stash in the package before then :D

My project crashed and burned. Well more like melted and kinda slid. It made me really sad so I took a break.

I'll be back. Just reevaluating.

I'm close to finishing.  My small seems to be taking longer than the larger one but I think it's turning out as I hoped it would!  I should be able to send out early next week.

I'm almost done again! Finished my first two items but then decided to do extras with Treemoon. I thought I finished yesterday at a meetup, but then this morning decided the last item was too small, so I'm adding to it today. Things need to dry, but I'll probably pack up tomorrow night for sending!

i keep thinking i'm in the home stretch on the medium, but it's one of those things i could tweak forever... as they say, "art is never finished, only abandoned!"

Ooo I got the requirements for this swap wrong, thought we were doing a large and a small! My small is done, my large is about 75% done and I have three extras (2 small and possibly a medium) planned! Getting there and loving the journey :)

I was about to write that I didn't mind about it being late, but I was totally sympathetic about losing something special, when I saw this post! So glad you found it? Strange coincidence, my glass went missing too! I still haven't found them, had to get a new pair!

This is a horrible thing to say, but I fully expect my package to get lost in the mail. Every little thing has gone wrong with the creation of the medium (I kid you not that one snafu just led to another and I ended up spending over 50 hours working on this...never again!) so I figure it would be the culmination of the whole deal if it were to get lost over the Atlantic.

two weeks..... I am beginning to wonder...

My poor dog was going bonkers last night trying to crazy-play, and not being allowed to race around  (e.g. rebound off the footstools, sofa, race-the-stairs, etc.) as Tornado Craftiness touched down at my house and I had to keep grabbing stuff while cooking dinner. 

I don't know about you, but putting it all away seems to take longer than dragging it out as I go.

While at work yesterday and thinking about all the stuff I am involved in and making sure it is all ok, I suddenly panicked, realizing "Whoah, I have no memory of notifying the organizer that I sent my package to Craftrica!  nooooooo!"  it took a moment to realize why. Oy, what a crowded mind I sometimes have. Time to slow down I think.
