Crafting requirements

This will be a 5 point swap. You can indicate on your questionnaire and/or discuss with your partner if you would like to craft more.

Large  = 3 points (eg. Bag, plushie, scarf, skirt)
Medium = 2 points (eg.)
Small = 1 point (eg. Magnets, earrings, wallets, bookmarks)


If you are mailing within your own country you MUST get a DC# (delivery confirmation) when you send your swap package. If youre mailing internationally, you MUST KEEP YOUR RECEIPT (or other proof of mailing that is approved by me before sending)! And I require a picture or scan of the postal receipts so I can verify that you have sent.

Flakerss beware. Gibbs rules apply to swaps as well!
1.   Never screw over your partner.

beckashells rules [much like Gibbs rules] DO NOT BREAK THESE

~ Make sure you post in the thread and stay updated by bookmarking this thread.

~ Everybody needs to post in the thread at least once a week, or I will have to hunt you down via pm! Please do not send out to your partner if they have missed that weeks check-in! This is to prevent flakers.

Some ideas to get you started:

-   a crocheted pillow with Gibbs rules on it.
-   Abbys stuffed hippo, Bert bonus points to anyone that can make one that farts!
-   '30 things I learned from NCIS' list on a tote bag (eg. including gems such as 'You can always       tell a woman's intentions by her panties' and 'Nobody messes with a man riding an elephant'.)
-   Ziva-isms on a bag/wall hanging/mug

Don't ya love how you plan for things, say you are going to do them, and then something happens to ruin those plans? I had planned on crafting all last week when I got home from work. Alas, that didn't happen. Thanks to "baby mama" drama, I was so stressed out and depressed all week, I wasn't motivated to do much at all! She was txting my BF two weeks ago, saying all kinds of smack about me, saying we'd never get their son again, that she was going to keep me from ever being around him again. Then she starts sending ME the messages, talking bad about me. I told her if she didn't leave me alone, I was going to file harassment charges on her. That set her off even more, saying she was going to get a restraining order on both of us so we couldn't come around her son anymore. Then she started saying even MORE hateful things to me. Long story short, BF and I have been together for 3 1/2 years, his son is 8, mother was 16 when she had him....he had a lapse in judgement and thought he wanted her about a year ago, sent her a dirty picture of himself...she threw that at me, and I fell apart....last Saturday was a disaster (which was when all this came out). We fought, we argued, we settled things. She sent another txt and threatened to basically beat me up if I even got out of my car if we came to soccer practice. We didn't go, but we did show up yesterday for the game. We had to walk right past her as we walked to the field, and she says, "She must have some balls!" Completely ignored her and kept walking. How imature! She's only hurting her son....or as she says THEIR son, and that I'll never be anything to him. Some people just shouldn't be mothers, ya know? So all this mess has got me on the edge, and I haven't slept well, haven't been able to eat without feeling nauseous, and haven't gotten much of anything done!

BUT....on the crafting side....HAHA....I am so excited that I picked out a craft that is on my partner's wist, and I didn't even know it! Well, its not EXACTLY what she has, but it is very similar. As a hint, I am going to crochet it instead of knitting it. I would knit it, as knitting looks better, but even with a month to work on them, I'd not have finished in time. I am a SLOW knitter! I am much faster at crochet.

Now its off to make some beer bread for the BF's mother....tradition to eat Sunday supper (lunch) with them....EVERY Sunday. Its ok, though. They have a HUGE family, and I love it! Wanna share a couple of pictures I took yesterday...love photography and taking pictures.

The BF's son Steven playing soccer. He loves it, even though he only wants to play goalie so he doesn't have to run. LOL!

Some lilac that I got from my grandma's bush yesterday. Forgive the paper towel under the vase....I actually made that vase. Its a soup can, painted copper color, then freehanded flowers on it. Came in handy, because all my vases were too tall for the short sticks of the branches I had to break off for the lilac.

Anyway, happy crafting today!!
