My package is all ready to go and I plan to send on Thursday.  I'm excited to see what my partner thinks of what I made for her.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH, I forgot to take pictures of the items I made and 2 of them I'm so proud of!  Oh well too late, I'm not undoing the whole package now.

Personal swaps... Would love to trade sewn stuff for some cool hand-carved stamps.

I definitely overstretched - I had a list of about 20 crafted items I wanted to make, and have only managed to make a portion of them.   But I definitely had to strike off three of the items I really wanted to make - I know now I will never be able to finish them well in time.  I just have to finish two items I am in the middle of now, and then make two more items just before sending for maximum freshness, and I will be shipping on time.  Oh yes, and add ____________ to the stocking.  I am going to one of my favourite sales on Thursday - maybe I can pick up a couple of extra bought stuffers there too.

Also, I will be wrapping the items up so that theballandskein can open some before and some at Christmas, if she wants.  Friday will be dedicated to wrapping.  Maybe I can do all the gifts I have for Christmas so far while I am at it.

Ok, I'm done!  really and truly done!  I just have to run out on my lunch break to get wrappy stuff, and hopefully I can have it in the mailbox tonight, to be shipped out tomorrow!  IF for some reason I can't get all of this done today, I might have to be a few days late and send on monday.  fingers crossed it doesn't come to that.

I'm sending tomorrow!  It's all packaged up ... and of course, once it was all wrapped, I realized I neglected to get pics.  Ah well.  I've got one of the stocking at least!

my shipping has been paid online and is now sitting in my company's mail bin to be picked up tomorrow  Smiley  I'm SO glad I will be away to TN to distract me from swap anxiety until it gets to TSM!  We live in the same state, so I'm hoping she'll have it by Saturday!

I'm done! Woohoo! I totally FINALLY finished! Whew!

I will be taking pictures and wrapping things up after the kids go down. Then - dun dun dun! - sending early in the morning! Hooray! I have had such a great time crafting for Calabaza and I really hope she likes everything. I must say, I stretched myself this swap and did things I've never done before! And I am thoroughly pleased with how everything came out. So pleased, in fact, that I will be making several more somethings for some of my other friends and family for Christmas. Wink
