21  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Common Ground round 5 S/U March 20-April 1, S/O April 24 on: April 19, 2017 10:04:20 AM
So I love pushing my creative bounderies by trying new crafts and techniques with each new swap and this swap has encouraged me to do so aswell. I'm totally excited for my partner to see this unique and first-time-attempted _______ I just finished today. I know she definitely doesn't have anything like it! Then I'm half way done the 2nd item, then to think of a 3rd and the extras.
Geez you people work so fast, ya'll making the rest of us look bad. Wink

Anne- That top looks great, I enjoyed reading Calvin and hobbs growing up. Such a classic! Also Averia is right about the claims. I was tied up planning my boys first birthday which ironically fell on Easter sunday this year. So planning both events while trying to keep them separate kept me at bay.

fishstix43- Glad surgery went well for you, I love playing volleyball too but I kept spranging my darn, weak ankles.

Averia- My mommy brain totally forgot to take pics of when I sent you the baby pkg from the previous swap(can't even recall what I made now, my memory is that muffled!) AND also forgot you didn't post pics either until you mentioned it, ha ha! I'm VERY pumped that you claimed me for a stenciled shirt sooooo I suppose all is forgiven. Wink

Quick question in terms of shipping to Germany if I were to claim Anne, is it basically the same cost as to Canada(I ship there alot is why I compare it)?

Whether I find the time to join this awesome swap or not(VERY TEMPTED), I have to say there is so much kick arse talent in here..... it's kinda intimidating to sign up! Like joining the big leagues. Shocked

I got all my supplies, at least I think, and then I got hit with a sinus infection and two ear infections. ...

Oh yuck! My condolences on that, Gozer. *hugs and a cookie*
 I got a bad sinus infection for the first time last month. I could barely walk, the pain in my head would stop me in my tracks and then a stupid fill-in doc misdiagnosed me, took blood samples, tested me for the flu(neg ofcourse)  and then he just told me to take tylenol for pain at the end of not finding results as an escape goat. Glad my orig Doc put me on antibiotics right away after I saw him(he was out of town at the time).

I'm still floating around ideas in my head for my partner. I was a bit stumped at first but it's coming together now. Supply shopping is next!

craftylittlemonkey - I love that you put that together. I love browsing through the past years(you went waaaay back too). Smiley
