Well, since everyone is listing...

I dabble in almost everything.  If there is something I want to try I claim someone for it so I can go out and buy all the stuff.  But I think I've bought ALL the stuff there is to buy!

I crochet

I mosaic

I sew monster dolls

I quill

I dabble in resin


I can also cross stitch and embroider.  I don't have any pics though. 
I will glue a magnet to anything.

Basically I have crafting ADD.  I become obsessed with one medium for a while then move on to another.  I just 'won' 12 lbs. of buttons off ebay so I bet I'm going to be doing things with buttons soon.  Yes, you read right, 12 POUNDS!  They were only 20 bucks and I have seen some cool mosaics with buttons.  My hubby thought I was a little wacked when that one came through paypal.

I am making myself learn to sew...I'm still working up to a real pattern, but right now it is simple stuff.

Anywho...Everything I've listed I've made for swaps, so that gives you an idea of what I do.

That's a lot of cute stuff, summertimerolls, and the cutest is the monsters. I think you have made me monster-crazy Smiley
I know what you mean by craft ADD Smiley I still have to learn about my own craft attention span Smiley but I have become a lot more patient on not being so patient Smiley. And I can't say how much crafting improves my everyday attention span Smiley
Don't be so harsh with yourself on the craft attention span. Only two generations apart from us, little girls have been taught to do hours of tedious crafts, not only for the need of making the things, but also for keeping them from wanting to step out of the craft parallel universe and do something scary in the real world, like open their mouth. Maybe we are still a bit in their shadow when it comes to stopping on too big projects.
You don't have to justify on how fast you move on, especially not with us. Craftster is about inspiration. I think you are lucky to be inspired often.
OK, I need to stop giving lectures, I think. Smiley
Just think how much we'd grumble if you had said "I don't know what your problem is, I can do everything as big and as long as ever has been done" Smiley

I should take a picture and show you what 12lbs. of buttons looks like...in fact I might just do that in a minute...but for now the gallery is up:


Can't wait to see the goodies this round.

Oh, and something else.  Since these last rounds have gone so slow I was thinking about stopping for Nov. and Dec.  We're going to be so busy with the holidays.  What do you guys think?  Or is there someone else who wants to organize?  This is really easy since it is moving so slow.  Let me know.

It's sad that this swap is so slow.  This is a great way to get homemade Christmas gifts and not have to hide all the things you are working on.   Sad

Sorry if old pics aren't showing.  Photobucket thinks I want to go from free to $400??! Nope.

I'd love to keep the swap going, even though it can be slow at times.  i think it's great for when I need something different to work on.  That being said, I don't think I'd be able to organize it because I know things get hectic here too.

I love love love this swap  Smiley

I wish I could commit to organizing but my father in law is really sick;  have been using the wireless at the hospital and working from there and that has been going pretty well and I am always home from at least 7-9 every night but am unsure if just being available for a couple hours a night is enough to organize an ows (even a slow moving one).

I adore this swap, even though I haven't claimed anyone yet. I always seem to miss the ones that I'm good at or would have time for. I'm crafting around making costumes and birthday presents and beginning christmas presents, so I don't want to commit to something that I'm not especially adept at. Though I have a few ideas for some of you.

I would be able to organize if you want me to.

Looking to increase my 1.5 in scraps for a rainbow project. If interested in swapping let me know!

I love this swap and I really want to join, but I have to finish my Christmas crafting for my DD first.  Hopefully I'll be able to join once the holidays are over.

Yea, I am loving this swap too, also using it to collect things to give my kiddo for Christmas, so I would hate for it to stop so close to Christmas now. 

Oh!  I also wanted to mention, I am going to be out of town from Tomorrow (Thursday) through Monday.  I am going to New Orleans, and I don't know if we are taking the laptop or what, so I may or may not have internet access.  I just wanted to let you guys know, so no one worried I just disappeared.
