Wow - I need to find out what a bead loom is - it sounds super cool!

*Skips off to google "bead loom"

Post by: mjadams on May 26, 2006 07:14:01 PM
everyone needs a bead loom! i know that you can make them, but i got one on ebay for i think 10 dollars. It makes making bead cuffs out of seed beads much easier  its kinda like a tiny knitting machine for beads

aww, really?  I loved it!  But then I never really read the comic books, so I don't know if the movies followed the real story or not...I personally love it when they kill main characters off in movies!  It adds a great twist.  I guess all that can follow for those characters are prequels...

I spent a few hours last sunday working on mine so I only had finishing touches to add. I kind of feel like it's not impressive enough (cute though) since I finished it already. But then again I always have swap anxiety.

Ok Guys!
There may become a problem with this swap, since VeryCrafty is having life problems right now. She contacted Kittykill re OWS9 & 10 and indicated that she can barely get on craftster right now. She does have a negative in one swap she was in.
Since I was in this swap and am probably becoming a mod, I'm going to start helping out now- in hopes that this will prevent further problems later.
So... please PM me and verycrafty with all sending and receiving info and I will start compiling my own list to keep track of this swap. If anyone has contacted Verycrafty about anything and not heard back- feel free to get in touch with me about it. If any of you have sent or received already, it would be really awesome if you could let me know.
Ok- enough for now, hopefully VeryCrafty will be able to sort out her life crap, back on craftster properly and tell me to butt out of her swap  :)

Aww, thanks for stepping in Bobolink. I hope verycrafty gets it all sorted out and gets back to craftster soon. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

I'll also be mailing tomorrow... Thought mine was under 33 g but it wasn't, and I didn't have enough change. I'll see how much Xpresspost is so puttenkat doesn't have to wait too long.

Sent! Should be there in a few days, puttenkat. Outgoing mail is usually pretty fast in my city.
