1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Little Good Things Swap (sign-ups 11/24-12/15, send-out 1/7) on: December 06, 2018 05:40:59 AM
I don't exactly remember what all I put on my Q but I know it was a sort of "in the moment" response of little things that make me happy (not necessarily material ones either). So in that vein, things that make me happy right now...

- a decent hair braid today (my hair can be so flippin' difficult sometimes)
- not having a hangover after drinks last night with old friends (big victory!)
- a crochet hour at WORK to promote mental health (this is amazing)
- chapstick (cannot live without it)
- funky cool earrings (wearing a pair I got off etsy that I loooooove)

Ok, that's it for now. Must continue the waking up process...

Congrats kbrison!

Yesterday at work we had a crochet lesson going on for some of the interested ladies at work (a part of a health initiative to exercise outlets of stress relief - I am loving my new job!). I had fun teaching them the basics to get started, and hopefully we'll have a regular group getting together to stitch and bitch lol.

Basically, what I'm saying is, my hook rides again!!  Cheesy

Hey, is it time again for a twinchie embroidery swap?......

(totally random butting in, I know  Tongue)

What about after the holiday? I will need something to keep my crafty spirit up.

That sounds lovely  Grin

I just found this adorable shawl pattern that is visually interesting while also not looking to be overly complicated

Add it to the list!  Cheesy

I should have included this on my Q; the thing making me happy right now is Tazo Wild Sweet Orange tea. So good!!

I just sent in my info...this is my first swap in a little while. I've passed on a few recently because I didn't think I could meet the deadline/requirements with other life stuff going on. But this one looks just right! Looking forward! Smiley

ditto Abbee! I have been in a little crafting slump lately but the tiny flame of desire is there. Just wilting under even more slightly more swap expectations haha. This is just the right fit. I'll be sending in my sign up soon!

I currently have no less than three shawls in various stages of completion in my craft room right now. Embarrassed Sadly, I just have not had the urge to pick up the hook for the past couple months. No worries though as this usually happens to me every year. It's just a phase. I will no doubt pick it back up and knock out at least one of those projects soon.


In fact, I think I can hear them calling to me now from the dark depths their WIP bags....

Haha, you and me both! I have two still languishing away. I'll finish them eventually....

just thinking of the gift exchange...we don't have a set number yet, right? i was thinking of getting a jump on things if possible. or at the least, gather some materials.

For anyone participating, you only need to make one thing. We're doing a take on a white elephant exchange except the gifts will all be handmade items that one would WANT to take home - not a gag gift or something like that.  Cheesy
