Post by: lady4feet on February 04, 2006 12:37:59 PM
does this "favorite drink" have to have alcohol--- or can I say that I love Coca-Cola and recieve Coca-Cola themed crafts

or even extended to coffee or teas (another fav).

thoughts?

Well since this is a round II for the cosmo/martini swap I think it should be a an alcohol drink.

I updated the list today. I'm so excited to start crafting, the only problem is I start thinking about it then I want a drink. Or I read the sign ups and think ohh that sounds good! LOL

So.. lady4feet. I know this is off topic, but my roommates kitty was sleeping with me last night and she was staring at my face giving me this cute expression and it really reminded me of something and I couldn't place it. And then I realized it was your avatar!
Is that a hamster?

You're right it's totally a ferret!!
So my cat looks like a ferret... hmmmm.....

BTW so this isn't completely off topic- I am sooo excited to do this swap. I keep coming up with ideas, but of course I have a thousand swap projects to complete first.

Post by: dharma_rebel on February 08, 2006 01:52:24 PM

Hey, so I had no clue the deadline was coming so soon. And I think my partner was the same way. In fact she just PMed me cause she never got my questionnaire and it sounds like crafting disaster is striking some...
Would anyone else be extremely happy if the deadline was pushed back a bit??
Just checking...
