Oh well, straight up donations are possible, I hope!

Yes they are.  You guys just need to give me time.  Please.  I'm doing my best here, with literally dozens of people contacting me all at once.  I will get to that asap.

Remember, the announcement came Monday and it's only Friday, and we've already accomplished SO MUCH.  It might not seem like it as a lot of the work is behind the scenes, but I swear things are being worked on, and progress is being made.

Thank you! I appreciate all the work you all are doing! <3

I made this quilt for my partner in this year's Mini 12 Day of Christmas swap. Smiley

I used most of 2 rainbow jelly rolls (3 full color repeats for the quilt & 6 strips for the binding) & a really awesome rainbow space fabric I found. Smiley
& I used this tutorial, but the site appears to be down now: Easy Rainbow Quilt from a Jelly Roll

Im here. Ive seen. I just refuse to acknowledge the horrible April Fools joke.

I thought it was a bad prank when I first saw it because I didn't recognize the username. Sad

I received today! I had to get the lights on my ridiculously large tree before I could get pictures:

An amazing Advent calendar with a piece of candy and a little trinket in each one!

A selection of locally made peanut butter fudge, a giant peanut butter cup, and dipped Oreo, in an incredible rainbow pouch!

(Dont have to tell me twice to open all of them at once!)  Grin

All of the presents were wrapped in fabric, but this was my favorite! I have a whole collection of cat fabric. I love the antlers! Im definitely wearing them to work.


These ornaments are already on my tree!

These cryptozoology patches are amazing! Ive stalked them on Etsy for YEARS.

I got Harry Potter fabric, and the most amazing tiny book ornaments! There is The Philosophers Stone, The Sorcerers Stone, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, and Advanced Potion Making!

I love rainbows and I love aliens, this is exactly ME.

This is my first ever pair of wrist warmers, and they are Amazing Wonderful Stupendous Awesomesauce and they fit perfectly!

DAY 10
Im so excited for this! Ive never cable knit before, but I got some tools, a book, and yarn, all in a galaxy bag that excited me just as much as the contents of it  Tongue

DAY 11
A CABLE KNOT STOCKING!!! It was filled with goodies, as well, but they are currently scattered. I should probably bite the bullet and call it a collection of stockings that I currently have, and this one will be one of my favorites!

DAY 12
This. This made me almost cry!!! I asked for a quilt, never in a million years thinking it was a possibility, but I GOT A QUILT!!! Jamie, thank you so much, I love this so much more than you could ever imagine!!!

I had such an amazing time doing this, and it is a little bittersweet, but Im so thankful for the years that Ive been swapping. I did my first swap when I was 18, and Im 27 now. My Craftster swapping ended on a high note. I hope my partner loves what I made her as much I love my presents!

Yay!! I'm glad you like everything! Cheesy

Day 2 - I didn't make the pouch - it was just one I bought a while ago & hadn't used yet & thought you might like. Smiley

Day 4 - I had fun picking these out & had to get the Star Trek ones for you! Grin

Day 8 - I'm glad you like it! I saw a rainbowy spaceship patch on your Pinterest & had to make this! Cheesy

Day 9 - the wrist warmers are made from Knit Picks Felici in case you need washing info

Day 11 - here's the (not great) pic I took before I packed it:

Day 12 - I'm so glad you like the quilt!! I really enjoyed making it for you! (even though it took longer than I thought it would Tongue)
