Stoked that I get my partner before I fly off!

I agree, I am a very talkative person at the beginning of the swap... Or the entire way through, as Eclectic Dreamer knows! Wink
Thanks for the well wishes everyone. We fly out at 4am on Monday! Cheesy

Dear future partner: I will be on vacation from the 13th until the 19th. I will occasionally be checking my email if I have connection for it (I'm actually going out of the country). I apologize for the little communication at first, please forgive me.

Annchen: The most common method is a pastie glue they sell in adult stores. Or costume stores as well, occasionally. Smiley I've heard that was the best and more comfortable method. But if you're allergic to some adhesives, I'd be a bit wary.

I worked in an adult store for ~2years, so... Smiley

Just thought I would comment that there was an advertisement for KINKY liquor at the top of this page for me.
I had a good cackle about it.

I'm seriously considering joining this swap... Hm.

All you're doing is a prompt on one side, then doing the prompt on the other? And since they're just standard playing cards, couldn't you send them in a basic envelope like an ATC? Or am I missing something?

This is absolutely adorable. My husband would love this. Cheesy Great job! I'm sure your grandma will love it.

Everything looks so fabulous! I'm glad you liked everything, Eclectic Dreamer.
My package says it's out for delivery, so I should be getting it today! It's been hard to resist camping out by the door...


I made her a pair of slippers like these (not these exact ones, lol, they're mine so I'm wearing them...), the colors are the same.


Here's a picture of the cowl.

Pardon the pictures. The only ones I had of those specific items were on instagram apparently! Haha.

I also received my package from Eclectic Dreamer today! Be prepared to be jealous. Cheesy This was a great and mighty package of swag.

First off, she made a stocking for both my husband and myself! And both suit us both fine! Cheesy Maybe even a little better than fine.


My husband's stocking, the TARDIS, was full of all kinds of goodies.

A Fridge Rover, assortment of candies, a Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock die, and the Northern Quest bag had a set of mini cards and dice.
My stocking, the tentacle, was also full of things! Cheesy

Felted soap, nice erasers, binder clips, a "Quickie" card game Wink, and a little Avengers keychain.

There was a random assortment of things in the two boxes.

A votive candle holder, two cookie cutters, St John's Wort/Lavender massage oil, EZ-Bake in a Cup, three things of ribbon, and a huge assortment of patterns.

Poisetta in a Can, three hand towels, nice and beautifully colored yarn, random tentacles, a set of candles, five wrapped boxes, and a nifty sewing kit.

The sewing kit had an awesome bag to hold it all, which is what was on the far left of the picture, tied shut.

The five wrapped boxes also had a huge assortment of things, including cranberry soap, two things of handspun/dyed yarns, soft socks...
The box on the bottom left:

Was a bunch of TARDIS things! Stitch markers, a necklace, 4 buttons, a bracelet that says "I wanted to see the universe, so I stole a Time Lord and I ran away.", a TARDIS inspired bracelet, a dreamcatcher necklace, and a pair of yarnball earrings. Cheesy
The bottom right box:

A FABRIC ORIGAMI checkbook cover and a FABRIC ORIGAMI credit card holder, two Egyptian inspired bookmarks, a package of labels, two nifty ornaments, and a Christmas button. Cheesy

Seriously. This is the best and most well thought out package I think I've ever received. This just blows me away... Absolutely incredible.
I'm saddened by the fact that there were THREE "FRAGILE" stamps all over the box and the post office managed to break a different votive holder AND handmade blackberry jam. Amazingly they were wrapped well enough that it didn't damaged anything else, but there were glass shards. :/
