1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / UNITED STATES / Re: Craftster Meetup 2020 - Aloha Hawaii! on: December 18, 2019 05:58:36 AM
I think it's not only possible to continue with this meetup (and another in Portland - woohoo!) but it's even more important now that we're losing the Craftster we've known. Really, social media communities only have lasting value if they result in real communities, and the group of friends (some of whom have never met IRL!) we've all gained from Craftster will be its legacy for years to come. So I'm even more stoked to get together with you all to raise a Mai Tai to the memory of Craftster and to look forward to what will rise in its place.



I think I have everyone's contact email for the Hawaii trip, but if not please fill out the link in my sig and put a note in if you don't want me to share it.  Smiley
Hope to see you all soon at the new site!


Is the Google doc available for 'read only' or 'download' yet? I submitted my info into the day you made it or the day after when you posted it on Facebook. Not 100% if I will still be able to attend the Hawaii meet-up in 2020...we've had some unexpected financial setbacks and I'm not sure we'll have recovered enough to afford that kind of a jaunt, even if it ends up being me solo Sad

Gutted Cry And that's putting it mildly...

Going to have to actively scour my profile and info on here to save stuff if I don't have it from 10-12 years ago and probably 6 computers ago.

I will go back thru this thread when I'm not at work and find the reddit info and sign up over there like many have already done. I'm on Facebook already, but I only keep close personal friends and family on there.

Ugh...I'm so close to breaking down at work over this...wow...I am just beside myself Sad

Hooray!! Both partners received! Live the little kittle action shots ❤️ Adorable!

That light up hoopla was a total first for me, stoked it came out so good Wink And I’ve never added that many pockets to a tote before, took some noodling to think through the sewing and assembly to make sure they were all functional.

I’ve got some pics I took before I sent everything off, so I may be inclined to post them as well. Such a good time in this swap getting to know a little bit more about all of you! Side note, has anyone heard from or about quaggy??

Oh! Sweets! Thanks!

I just went to upload it and then come back here to tag you to flip it, and it's mysteriously flipped upright today...hmmm...I must've edited and saved the thing 18 times yesterday and in a fit of rage threw my hands in the air like I just don't care and moved on. LOL!

I'll be sure to tag you for flip help if I struggle on it again.

OK, so...I don't know what finally happened, but this photo is flipped upright properly now today when I'm trying to post it. sweets4ever said she'd flip it when I tagged her on the post, but now I don't need to. So strange! Oh, well, I'll take it!

My husband clutching his Totoro...awww...

Thanks again, geekgirl1000100!!

Holy package explosion, Batman!!! I just scrolled through 3 amazing pages of goodies! Cacti and embroidery and yarn-crafted-goodness, OH MY!

And now, I will add to the explosion of awesome with my package from Bugaboo1 Smiley


An amazing totebag with some of my favorite colors and items, sea life, coral/salmon, and turquoise. And a super-cool mini triangle zip bag to match!

Loved my first body pouf so much, I asked if I could get another one, and she delivered.

Wide array of extras: canning lids (because you can never have too many when you're canning!), re-usable stainless steel straws in rainbow colors, some of the best pectin, Pomona's, rockin' post cards showing me some of what's in upstate NY, and some gourmet sugar-free gum that both DH and I can have (he's diabetic). I'm gonna go pop a piece of the champagne flavor in my mouth in a minute Wink I'm intrigued by it!

Thank you SO very much! I plan on putting the totebag to use tomorrow with my outfit I picked out for work Smiley

That shawl is lovely!! After fighting with photos I took yesterday on my cell phone to rotate, I've given up on them Sad I just had to retake static shots, sorry, no action shot like I took last night of my husband with the main item. I'm bummed!

But, I'm NOT bummed about my awesome goodies from geekgirl1000100!!

Behold! My 'medium' item, which is LARGE and in charge in every sense, actually.

Isn't he the CUTEST???!!! We think so! My husband is TOTALLY thrilled with his new massive Totoro Smiley This guy is about 12" tall, super squishy and huggable for days!

And I got all the rest of the goodies alllll to myself! HA!

My favorite highlighters, which I've been meaning to buy a pack for myself for ages and just never got around to it. I've been nursing my last pack for over 2yr now and have whittled it down to only 4 left. A whole package of all the DMC variegated floss colors!! I've been wanting to do a doodle embroidery or something with using ONLY variegated floss, now I can! And who doesn't love buttons?? We all know I DO, and several of these I don't have anything like them in my stash, so I'm super stoked. I think I'll save the card and make a little altered art thing for the kitchen, as my husband is a big tea drinker Wink

Thank you so much,

That's a real bummer Sad I can't make the photos come thru rotated from my phone when I upload here, even if I download to a PC and edit them in software on the computer...BUT if I take them with my camera, edit them to rotate and save on my computer, they DO flip and stay that way when I upload here. I'm very confused...but apparently I can't take vertical photos with my phone and have them rotate on their own here for upload. I'll have to do everything with a regular camera or nothing. Oh well!

All of these packages are SO awesome! Every single one has one or more item I would have loved to receive myself Smiley Love seeing how much we all have in common even though we're all individuals.

I received from geekgirl1000100, but I can't get my photos to flip when I upload them, and I'm very Type A, so I refuse to post a sideways photo on the internet that I can't flip after the fact (like you can do on Facebook when that happens). I keep getting an error when I click the links on the Crafter edit tools in photo hosting, I think it's my work computer causing issues, though no one's followed up on my 'help' post I put in that section of this site yet. I'll try to upload pics again at home later this evening. I'm SO stoked to share!!! My DH and I are over the moon!!

The Make-A-Friend Collaborative Poem

In 2019, it was said, it was once again time to make a friend...
And BigBangMomma hosted the fun without end!
Some were fortunate to make not just one friend, but two.
Frequent discussion led to finding much in common with all of you!
