I've already checked it out with mods and angel-ing doesn't count.  Oh well, what can you do, huh?  I'll just obsessive stalk the gallery Smiley

Well my partner and I have started talking.  I needed to talk to her since she is so new there was not much "stalking" to be done and learn from.  I tend to spend a big part of my swapping time brain storming and thinking what to make, so yea, I am still in that stage, then there is the gathering supplies stage, then procrastinating stage, then crafting stage, then worried about perfection stage, then the swap anxiety stage, then the realizing that if I have to get it perfect it will never get sent stage and the rushing to the post office stage.

I am starting a new craft. Turns out what I was doing was flammable and I didn't realize it.
SO, aside from battling fires (small ones, albeit) I've been thinking about the type of things to make. My swap partner (summie) has been awesome so far Smiley

So yay!

OK for some reason I thought that swaps were like hush hush (i.e. no one is 'posed to know what your making till your partener gets it) Now where I got this from I have no idea Huh Roll Eyes But hey now I know and "knowing is half the battle" (Thanks G.I. Joe) LOL

Well it all depends on the partners if it is secret or not.  Some partners like to arrange in advance "exactly" what they are making each other, and some like it to be a surprise, some have a general idea.  It just depends.  Mostly, I like to get surprises and I like to send some surprises.  But since I asked you for things like neck measurements you might get the idea that I am considering jewelry.  There are some swaps that are specifically secret swaps but generally it is up to the participants how they want to play.  Oh of course except in the specific swaps like, dishrag swap, or apron swap.

haven't started crafting yet- procrastinating crafting, which iw as going to do to procrastinate homework, by being on craftster. Tongue
i have a few ideas though. now i see why you craftster kids keep swapping notebooks- i've never done two at a time before, i'm getting confuddled!
it's been cool talking with mimikachu though. usually i worry about doing swaps because i do "hippy crafts" (yeah, i made that up), and i worry people won't like my style. this should not be a problem though Wink
i'm thinking about a bought CD for a small item? is that acceptable? since they said we can't burn a cd....i know that's not crafty at all haha.

I just finished the last of my crafts. I'm expecting a lot of company in the next week, namely my mom and my brother--both of whom have never been out of the country, much less to asia-- so I had to get my rear in gear to finish on time. Luckily, I had a lot of ideas for this swap and one thing spiralled into another idea, blah, blah....

But now I'm finished.

I know it's early to send too, BUT seeing as it takes about 3 weeks from asia to the usa, my stuff should hopefully get to my swap partner about the same time as everyone else's domestic swaps do..

Hooray?!

How is everyone else coming along?

Christmas, by the way, is already stressin' me out...

I was off work yesterday and went all craft-happy after class. I even moved my chair and sat down in the middle of the floor surrounded by stuff. It was great Cheesy I'm over halfway done with my large object, and I've done my small and most of my medium one. I think I'm going to make one more thing because my small and medium items might both be small. I'm not a good judge of these things haha. But yay, I'm excited Smiley

Just wanted to pop in and say that I am going to be late.  I am recovering well from the auto accident last week, and got the settlement check for the car yesterday.  But do not have a car for myself yet.  Also, had in mind something I wanted to make and went to three towns to find what I needed and could not find it so I ordered it.  This happens to me a lot.  I think I need to just start ordering things from the beginning and stop waisting my time running from town to town and store to store, because once I get something in my head that is generally what I have to do!!  Sorry ladies.  I will keep you informed.
