Yeah, I've been carving erasers for a while - and I need to get into the habit of carving the pink stuff again.  I like the erasers I bought yesterday - massive things they are, but good.

I hope you have more time and inspiration, jexxican!  Cheesy

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

My partners are nto very stalk-able and that makes finding inspiration for this swap rather difficult. And on top of that, I ordered the wrong materials so the only thing I have to carve is erasers so when I do get inspiration, it ends up not working for small stamps. *sigh* I knew I should have held off. All will be well, though, eventually, before the SO date I'm sure. I have what, 10 days?

I was looking at other people's profiles as part of this swap and realized that so many people are so much more stalk-able than I am! lol  I thought about it at the time, so just in case you were talking about me (since I'm in your group, lol), here's a little bigger list than I made in my original swap survey (Yeah, I'm a swapping newbie; didn't quite get detailed enough Wink :

Here's some more things I like: Cute cartoonish animals, Dr. Seuss books, big bug-eyed things (like big-eyed frogs), bubblegum machines, Christmas stuff (not-religious, but like candles and stockings and snowflakes and tree ornaments).  Hope that helps!  Smiley

Sorry about the materials!  That's just disappointing and frustrating!

Oh, I got carving yesterday. I think I ended up with about 12 stamps so I think I'm good. Thanks for that little bit of inspiration though. I'm sure we'll be in another swap together, it's destiny. I will be ready to send Wednesday! Now if I can just find the stuff I'm sending to my siblings to get them out that day too... I am going to have fun as the PO this week, I love telling the people what's in my swap packages. "You did what with yarn?!?"

Just sent off to my partners.  I'd send DC's if needed - I can't keep which ones are which.  (Just did a mass mailing - *sigh*...my erasers didn't qualify for "lettermail" - freaking expensive Canada Post!)

Woo! I am almost finished the second of your stamps but then I started a third one. I expect to ship them on Wednesday. I hear your pain, can't understand why our postal system is so expensive considering we don't have Saturday delivery. I think my other package of stamps just barely qualified as letter mail, that's certainly one advantage to not mounting them eh!

HI all! 

I thought I would check in.  I am done carving and ready to send, so my packages should be going out tomorrow or Wednesday.  Everything is ready!

Money has been ridiculous here lately. ;.; Husband is not happy, but. I need to buy the supplies for this swap so I can swiftly carve out stamps for my partners. ;.; I'll be doing that tomorrow.

All boxed up and ready to go! Sending Wednesday! Pretty good considering yesterday I was fretting that I hadn't even made 1 yet.... I've made lots since then!
