All right, 2018, let's do this.  Cheesy

I don't expect to get a ton of crafting done this year, but I am motivated to get through my stash, find homes for what I make or what items I can't use, and start anew. And this weekend all I want to do is finish old WIPs! (And nap. Lots of dozing happening.)

2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: ** Report Questionable Ads Here ** on: January 11, 2018 08:55:26 PM
Hi there,
About once every week or two, while using Craftster on my Android, I get one of those spam pop up prompts that redirects me away from the site and there's no way around it other than closing the browser and clearing my cache/browsing history. It's been a different ad each time, but sometimes they say I have a system error (which is just a ploy to get me to click on their link), or that they're sending me to Amazon (which is also doubtful). Has anyone else had these awful things recently?

Still waiting for confirmation of receipt and mailing on a few! I'm on the road again (S. Utah) so I'll update again on Friday when home with computer.  Smiley

I would love to be in on this; not sure if I'd be able to in the next couple months though.

Finally, photos of the rest of my gifts!!

First, a tea package from kittykill!

TWO tea strainers (a cat with a big fish, and a whale), plus a delectable assortment of tea. I'll be a happy, tea-sipping camper for quite some time this winter.  Grin I'm pretty giddy about the card, too. I received this right before I left on my trip, but I was too sick to function.  Tongue

Then I got home, and there were three packages waiting, plus UTM's holiday card! I was only expecting one!

First, from swap superstar and co-organizer Smeddley, I got a new spindle and a bag of fire-starters!

I'm going to use the living daylights outta all this.  Cheesy

Next, LadybugsAndBumblebees sent a bunch of goodies, with the highlight being ATCs!

Two ornaments (yes, I did lick the candy cane to make sure it wasn't a Twizzler. It is, in fact, plastic.  Cheesy), winter tissue pack (why do I never buy these for myself? So necessary!), and squishy dog card!

And finally, framed artwork and candy from fluffypants!

Check out this dapper guy! He looks like a Maurice to me. Pardon the glare; if you need a cleaner pic, fluffypants, I can de-frame it and re-photograph.

Thanks to everyone! Being the ringmaster of this covert circus is already such fun, and you all made it even better!  Kiss

Hi, I'm back! Feedback has been updated! I'm catching up on everything else.  Grin

When your package has been received, feel free to unmask your identity if you want to! Or not; it's up to you.  Cool

Through a series of uninteresting events and good luck, I got my Bubbles present in Mexico!

I got extra because there was a personal swap involved that began prior to this swap.  Grin Rainbow prayer flag! Mini book with pencil binding and the awesome craftylittlemonkey sewn-stuff fabric! Eye pendants!! I'm waiting on a 2nd photo to upload for insides and backsides.  Smiley I lurve everything!! Thank you!

I'm going off to a rural Mexican village through December 25, so I don't know if I'll have data/cell service Nevermind, the Wi-Fi here is better than my own.  Cheesy

Crossing my fingers more packages arrive before the 25th!
