craftADDchick I think your glass pumpkin is adorable but its a shame they werent properly prepared for the class. I think glass work would be so nerve wracking! I would be terrified it would break while I was making it. I love the way the pumpkin has see-thru parts to it. Your crab is a cutie. I am sure the kids will love him!



Thanks, gozer! I worry about the glass shattering, too! In the last class I took, we were making cups, and at one point, as we were transferring my cup from one punty (the rods used to hold the glass while working) to another, my cup fell off and hit the floor. They managed to quickly reattach it, and there's only the tiniest mark to show that it happened. It actually bounced on the cement- the glass was pretty thick, so it was more durable than I expected!

SBC, I love your pumpkins! And, your snowmen are so cute. I love how they look with the lights.

My month has been insanely busy- weekends and weeknights pretty full, so my crafting has been seriously limited. I have a packed day today, too! So, I need to get on it. I only popped on here to see if I was going to be able to complete the November Battle... I hope what I'm planning to make today will fit the theme!

I have a love/hate relationship with November. I love the colder weather but hate that the leaves are off of the trees...and on the sidewalk. I love Thanksgiving day, but hate that I have to spend 2 days doing parent conferences before I get there. I love that we get a Thanksgiving break, but hate that it chops up the month so badly and my curriculum ends up in tatters.

Today, I'm scrambling to get some last minute (before my trip) crafting in, plus get my progress reports done (because they're due shortly after the break), and prep for conferences, and pack for my trip (I'm leaving right from school on Tuesday, and I won't be home until close to 9 PM tomorrow night). Oh, and somehow, I stupidly signed up for a glass fusing class right in the middle of the day...I didn't pay close enough attention to the date.

I have a couple of purchased items for Powerhouseofthecell, but my crafted items were put on hold due to technical difficulties... and, and item I thought I might send had to be completely torn apart because I made a mistake and didn't know where...

Time to change over the laundry and get crafting!

I finally decided on what to do... now the usual "Find the time" thing... Wink

I hear you on this! It's nearly 2 pm and I still haven't been able to start crafting. I tried to crochet while I was getting an oil change, and was doing fine until a guy plopped down beside me and wanted to chat. While we had a nice conversation, I couldn't count stitches while we talked.  After I head out to do a bit of yard work (the city will most likely be by tomorrow to collect leaves), I can craft for a little while. I have to build some models of police interrogation rooms (made out of cardboard boxes...nothing fancy, but I need to make 5 or 6 of them) for a curriculum unit I'm piloting, so I have to leave time to work on that...

Nice placemats! I like the colors you used! Are you leaving Japan for good, or just temporarily?

Today I cut out my fabric and started to assemble and it isn't looking good. I used a pattern from a blog and the finished product online does not look like mine at all.   Cry Cry Cry  I need to seriously reassess and maybe buy more fabric.  I am not a happy camper right now. 

Oh, no!

And, I'm a bit stuck with what to make for you. I was going to make another patch for your mom's  bag, but I saw that you finished it (And it came out gorgeous! I love how well all of the colors worked together!). Can a group of items (that could form a collection) count as one medium item?

craftADDchick, a collection of items would be delightful!  I'm sure I will love anything you make.  For your slippers, I cut up all the pretty purple.  I misjudged the size when I was blowing up the pattern because I tried on what I have done and they fit my size 7 feet snugly. Cry Cry Cry  I'm switching to a different pattern with reliable size guidelines, but now I'll have make them with the red.  I'm kind of bummed about it.

I'm glad you got the pretty purple, at least! And, red will be easy for me to spot when I forget where I took them off... Smiley

I am finishing up a task tonight and that will leave me free to craft for most of the day tomorrow! I am 99% sure I know what I'm making you, and I think I can get most of it done tomorrow. Yay!

I hear you guys, for Anna and I all shipping is internation, but tbh it is less that you guys pay. Have you looked into shipping companies like DHL etc, would it be cheaper.

A PSA if you are shipping internationally, mark your package No Commercial Value, and gift, otherwise we can get stung for customs fees on this side.



I used FedEx to ship a package once (we won't discuss the cost to send said package), and because I put a value on it of $50 (there was an item in there that would have cost that much to replace), the fees on the receiving end were $85! I couldn't make my swap partner pay that...

Crafting is my hobby and swapping makes me happy, so now i consider postage a craft expense.

That's such a great way to think about it! I have gotten scorched on some international shipping costs, but it was mostly my fault because I sent too much or sent at a faster shipping speed. I'm more mindful of that now...

Im ready to craft my cozy toes, but I promised myself that I would catch up on grading papers first.  Sooooo...that means Ill be sending late.  LOL, just joking.  But if you dont hear from me in the next few days its because Im buried under a pile of student work.  Cheesy

Wait... did I write this? Smiley

I seriously wasted today when I should have been grading a stack of papers. I was sick for over a week, and then had a bad bout with vertigo, which made it hard to read things (even moving my eyes across the page made me dizzy), which set me back. Plus, I started a new grading system, which we had trouble getting set up in our grading system (and it wasn't working for progress reports...), so I fell very far behind...

But this morning, I did a 5K (I walked it) and then grabbed breakfast... at a very busy bagel place, so it took longer than I had planned. Then, I took a nap (I went to a concert last night and got home late), did laundry, had dinner,  finished bingeing on Schitt's Creek, and now I'm thinking about what I need to prep for tomorrow...

But, I'm also thinking about this swap... many ideas swirling around in my brain...

Tiny things are always so much cuter! I really like the paper you used, and it makes such a nicely coordinated gift package.
