First, I must say, the YOGA QUEEFER, that was utterly hilarious!  I've queefed during yoga too, but usually only my husband is around.  We both die laughing!

Secondly, I have received lots of secrets over the past several days.  Here we go....

I cried when Bumblebee was dying. (Shia LaBeouf/Transformers)
I did too!!!  My husband thinks I'm nuts for the things I cry over.  Grin  I loved this!

My friend's baby girl is dying... and I am not there for her because I am afraid of getting too close.  Sad  I wish it would end soon now.
This one made me really sad.  I hope you can find it within yourself to be there for your friend during this difficult time.  Don't be afraid of your feelings; they are normal and healthy.  I'm sure you are and will feel pain, and your friend definitely will as well.  It might help your friend to know that someone else feels the hurt and is affected by her daughter's sickness; that she is not alone.  Whatever the situation, I hope you and your friend are able to heal and that a miracle happens for her baby girl.

My best friend sometimes gets melodramatic on the phone and I make faces and roll my eyes so far back in my head that I can almost see my brain...but I keep my voice level so she won't know because I don't want to hurt her feelings.
You aren't alone here!  I think we've all done this on the phone... it annoys me when I do it, but I'm so afraid of not being "polite" and a good listener.

I attempted suicide at 13.  12 years later, I have never been happier.  I am so happy I failed.
This card made me both happy and sad at the same time.  I am SO glad you didn't succeed, but I was upset that you had such a rough time then.  I am glad things are brighter and happier for you now.  I am the same age as you, so that really struck home... how much I would have missed in my life in these past 12 years.

I like the smell of my own FARTS!
Hahaha... I LOVE this!  I, too, don't necessarily dislike my own "aroma"!  hahaha!

Those black & white commercials make me cry.
I'm a sucker for a good cry as well... It help release all kinds of emotion!  I think its great!

We have a winner! (I'm taking my expired prescription).  ZOLOFT: dulls family relations, gives out of body experience, still feel kind of crazy.  NO ZOLOFT: makes me deal with family, mind games aren't from a pill, doesn't aid weight loss, still crazy, not the good kind
Sender, not knowing your particular situation and circumstances, I hope that the Zoloft is helping you (it sounds that way!).  I'm glad you were able to figure out a solution!!

I have a SECRET but I can't even tell you anonymously, I am so ashamed.
That's ok... releasing this "secret" in and of itself is hopefully helping you deal with your true secret.  Maybe someday, you'll find the need/desire to get things off your chest, but if not, hopefully this process has helped you nonetheless.

Thank you all for sharing your wonderful secrets with me and the Craftster community!  Therapy at its best!  Cheesy

Two more!  Like everyone else said, its amazing how FAST this gallery piles up... There are SO many card I want to comment on.  For now, here are two awesome cards I received recently:

I can relate to this, but from a different angle.  I sometimes feel like my husband's family judges me because I grew up in a different (known to be snobby/rich) state, even though we were just a regular middle class family.

I thought this was absolutely hilarious!  I love it!!  Smiley

Thanks for sharing your secrets!

Sorry, I get limited time on the internet so I have SOOOOO many comments!  I would love to comment on each and every one, but since I can't please know that I value every single secret and find solace in knowing that I am not alone in so many of my feelings.  This swap and thread is so awesome and I am thankful I am a part of it!!

That said... onto the comments....

Chocolate - Me too!  I LOVE the stuff!  Not a day goes by where I don't eat some chocolate!

He said "yes" about kids - I have a friend who I'm pretty sure is in a similar situation, but I know she'll never admit it.

Cruel in High School - Isn't it amazing when we look back, just how mean we actually were to some people.  I guess its all part of growing up, but sometimes I get furious about the way I once treated people just to be "cool".

Rejected my advances - I hear you there!  I hate being rejected for sex, but sometimes I think its important to remember that girls aren't the only ones who sometimes aren't in the mood or are tired.  There are nights when I'm tired and there are nights when he is too.  I've come to realize for us, its just about keeping a balance and not expecting either of us to always be ready to pounce!  haha.

No one talking about secret - I'm afraid of this too.  I think this thread is very healing and helpful to me and I hope it is for you as well.

Can't look in the mirror - You're totally not alone.  I don't think there are many women (or men!) who are entirely happy with their bodies.

He can't find THIS body attractive - Kudos to you for posting this secret!  I hope it helps you learn that your body is indeed beautiful!

Boyfriend for 4 years - I have a good friend who is in the same boat.  I haven't been in that situation myself, but I do know that it must be extremely difficult to imagine your life not turning out the way you had hoped... but ya know, sometimes that can be a good thing too!

Go-Go Dancer - It does sound like fun sometimes, doesn't it?!  I sometimes think it might be fun to be a stripper... just for one night.  They seem so be so "free" and uninhibited... but its probably all an act.

Crochet reaction - I understand... I often get the "oh....  Embarrassed you do craaaafts.  Hmm."  I hate it!

I added the text to my post.  Thanks, haroldlovesmaude, you got it!

I received two wonderful postcards!

"I wish I could relive college.  I want to have that much fun again."

"When I was 11 or 12, I still went to a day-care type place for Spring Break.  It was my last year going.  There was a boy there who really liked me.  He held my hand and acted really romantic towards me.  At the end of the week, we didn't exchange contact information... I wonder if he still thinks about me like I think about him"

Thank you both for sharing such wonderful secrets.  If there's anything you can't read, just let me know and I can type them out.

my first postcard! sorry for the bad picture, i have no other camera besides my phone.
it reads: He left his laptop on last week signed into his mail. I read every message.
i have been guilty of this as well, actually.
thanks for sharing!

I have done this as well (to my boss)... I feel so guilty when I do it, but sometimes the curiosity just overcomes me.  I never end up seeing anything stellar anyways.

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who take part!  Hopefully, I can steal some time away for myself to craft my secrets!!!  Can't wait to divulge, dish, and share.   Cheesy

YAY!  Better get started now!  (I'll be away all weekend for a bachelorette party in Montreal....not that I'm complaining!)  Grin  Can't wait for my free craftster therapy.
30  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Greeting Cards... with buttons! (pic heavy) on: November 12, 2007 05:33:36 AM
So cute! I adore buttons. We're having a Christmas craft sale at work in December.... I think making something like those cards would be just perfect. What did you do for envelopes?

I just used the standard envelopes that came with the blank cardstock cards (I bought that big multipack at Michaels... they were left over from a bridal shower invitation project).  You could always make some fun envelopes, like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88858.0.  I have yet to try them, but I've had them bookmarked forever!   Cheesy 

One thing though, if you plan on people sending the cards through the mail, I've heard its a good idea to send them in bubble envelopes to protect the buttons from breaking... the postal service can be a bit rough on them I think.  Wink
