Well, I'm hoping I'm wrong. Maybe something's happened. This'll be my third flaker, if I'm not. Sigh, again. When I think of all the hours I spent on this...And I know life does rear it's ugly head occasionaly. But if that's the case, I'd much rather they would just let me know they can't do it. I'd be okay with that. It'd beat wondering about it.

But I've also had a wonderful angel in the past. And I've had pro craftsters making beginer me better stuff than I've sent them-and being so encouraging to me. It evens out.

And on the bright side, my kid was inspired by this swap to get out the yarn and make a medusa patch. I'm going to help her attach it to a knit cap, and post a pic later. Funny-she's all gung ho about making these, I gave her the cap, and told her I'd buy the first one-and now she can't part with it! Hee. I'll get the second one.

Looks like I've been flaked on too. Sigh.

My fingers are crossed for you! Well, not literally, or I couldn't type...
You know what you need? A nice voodoo doll. And to keep things crafty, it could double as a lovely pincushion. Oh, and since a real voodoo doll has something from your enemy inside(hair, ect) to make it effective, you could use those signatures of his.
It'd probably have as much a chance of working as getting Etsy to do anything.
I'm not trying to make light of your troubles, just trying to give you a smile! I am so angry on your behalf. And I honestly hope this has a happy ending for you.

Thanks, guys! The leaf pillow started as a placemat I knew had to be made into something, and the lucky find of a small piece of vintage fabric.
There's a leaf necklace too-no big thing, just something I made out of taking apart 3 earrings and an old necklace. But since I have a scanned pic, I'll put it up.

My partner was so patient waiting for her stuff! And Williarl, I found the perfect spot to hang my Archie mirror you made for me. It rocks!

you know, we really need a round two sometime...

I'm still waiting for my package from Dkay-hopefully the mail will arrive soon!
Thanks for the kind words on the watch! Pogo, I've bought clocks at the thrift store for 1 to 3 dollars. But most of what you see isn't real watch parts. I took apart a couple of jeweled bobby pins, took apart some broken jewelry-okay, I have a tiny tiny tub of teeny watch parts I bought off the Manto Fev website-Flat rusty bottlecap, washers,and the big gears are plastic painted with bronze paint. My little dispenser for sticky tape broke, and they were inside it.
I love playing with odds and ends.
Yet another cool swap, ladies. I love all the different stuff we come up with.

They probably think you can just whip one right up, and have no idea of the time involved. People think all purses and bags take the same amout of time and money, and if you made one, surely you can make any other. Wrong!
Say it takes x amount of time(Double it to be safe) to make each one, smile and say you can't spend all your time crafting, so you try to make things for fun. Joke about needing to eat, sleep, and see your friends occasionaly.
But yeah, I like the-"I'm so glad you like my designs! Here's my new etsy shop! I've wanted to set one of those up for so long! Sadly, I no longer have the time for custom work."
And, I agree, the "Messenger bags aren't something I have the know how and sewing machine to make-perhaps your grandaughter should try looking on etsy? She'll be sure to find something unique there."
Good luck.

Forgot an item-the time travel clock. It was going to be a pocket watch, but didn't work out that way.

And with the lid off, for a better view of the innards. I wanted to keep this one!

Fixed! Thanks! And my partner's mailed my stuff, woohoo! This has been a cool swap.

Thanks, Imagine! And I'm a bit slow tonight-just write is an image, and not just a link? I went to my craftster picture hosting, and copied and pasted the entire string. I don't quite understand? But then, I am a luddite. Smiley It's late, and I think I'll be signing off for the night soon.
Perhaps my brain is tired.
