21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 70-72 Discussion thread ONLY! on: June 03, 2011 07:30:07 PM
well, i got all my packages for 70 out today! I'm impressed with myself, one was a few days early even. Smiley

i can't  join the next round though until I get a slot open.  Good news is that 3 swaps worth of packages should be received by monday so hopefully soon i can join you guys! I need to start collecting traveling things for dragoncon.

I had two really good ideas for paper crafters - an autograph book and a travel journal! i also need some luggage tags and stenciled shirts.  Smiley

I have a pile here of 4 hooplas to send out.. plus one about halfway done and one in my head.  yes, some are for other swaps, but seriously, the hooplas and embroidery floss have taken over my desk.

i'm so glad you like the scrubbies! I just found the pattern online.  And I do admit to staring at it for a long time and twisting it until I got it to work. Smiley I'd be happy to make them for anyone. Smiley this is the pattern I used: http://crochetpatternsonly.blogspot.com/2009/06/spiral-scrubbie.html

kbauer - i think the rules are that if the dcn shows being received then you can claim again, you don't have to wait, but they might have changed since I had to ask that. Smiley

I redid most of my list!!

About Me: I'm 35, married and live with my husband in South Florida. We don't have any kids or pets and don't really plan on them, and recent events have shown me that this was a great idea.  I love coffee, anything with blue stripes, Star Trek and anything related to Chris Pine. I like polka dots and stripes and cute things and Carnival Bloom fabric!! I love the colors pink and blue and pretty much all colors, but I love blue and brown together and pink and brown. Also Pink/green and brown/pink/ green. I really need a new purse and I really want some fingerless Bella Mitts.   I've switched all of my wists to pinterest because its so much easier and sounds like one of my favorite words ever.

29  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Giant Multi-Theme Swap Round 3 ~Signups CLOSED! We are full!~Sendouts August 31~ on: May 25, 2011 07:31:45 PM
well, I know I am going to have to buy some stuff for t his swap, but I am going to work on what I've got for a while.  i know I have stuff to knock out a couple of the days.  I have a feeling I am going to need a little help though. I will have to ask a bunch more questions, I think, too.

I've been pretty quiet this swap and I only ended up making three claims.  First one is received, the  2nd one is on the way to the Netherlands and I started #3 today! And I have a 3 day weekend ahead of me.

my husband was away last weekend (we take separate vacations, and that was his.) Its kind of like a vacation for me too because I didn't have him whining at me and bugging me in the middle of anything.  (seriously, it was AMAZING. I love separate vacations.)  But I didn't seem to get any crafting done...

As for kids, man, I'm 35 and I have none.  I don't have kids or grandkids or pets.  No responsibilities is NICE.  sometimes I wish I had one, but I don't know anything about kids so its probably good I don't have any.
