OMG!! I so want to join this swap, gotta send 2 or 3 more packages off and wait for feed back. I think the best thing about the holiday's is the Christmas stockings.  I need to get a move on my crafting so I can get counted in on this one.

What's better than Pink, Butterflies, Glitter, Mermaids, Fairies & Angels......NOTHING!!!
Time to load up the Unicorn and head to the rainbow!!!

I may seriously have to do this one! Hubby never makes me a stocking Sad Even though I carefully prepare one for him each year and keep it hidden in my car trunk! And the long crafting time is AWESOME!

I'm totally in, but need to finish packing before I can send in my answers.  I'm moving on Friday and I keep getting distracted from packing by craftster. 

I'm really looking forward to filling everything out though, it's going to be my goal for the next day or so. 

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

I can't believe I'm signing up for a Christmas swap already... But I'm gonna. Because I would love to have a fabulous personalized stocking, and I'd love to make something downright lovely for someone else too.

Edit: I started filling this out, but realized my head wants to sleep. So I'll do it sometime this week. Nite all! Wink

Oh shoot. I would love to do this swap but I don't think I can get my current (and very first) swap completed and receive my feedback in time. Sad

My husband doesn't do the stocking thing for me either. *sigh*
