I set aside time today to work on an item for package 1.  But I got distracted and excited and forged ahead with a set of items for package 3 - sure hope I don't misplace them in the meantime!

Australian made and owned.

I'm doing this package in ten-minute bursts, whenever my baby is content enough for me to leave her, hehe.
Super cute, she's asleep on the playmat with a cat curled up on either side of her. It's really cold today.

I am paying a little more attention to another swap over this one, which has the same send date, because my partner in that one has her baby due right around then, so I want to send it early and then put my attention back to this.

Keep smiling - It makes people wonder what you're up to.

Looking for Australian personal swaps! [For now. I'll branch overseas when I can afford it!]

I was having a hard time at first coming up with items to craft for package #1.  Then I was browsing the internet the other day and 3 things popped in my head. Smiley  I have 2 of them done and have to go to the store for something to finish the 3rd item.  Then I have to start writing about everything.  I think that might take longer than finding all the items. Smiley

Glad i hadn't gotten to working on this swap yet maybe i'll just window shop for things for tonight and work on my crafted items tomorrow

Just checking in.  I have three items done and finishing up one that has been taking me f-o-r-e-v-e-r to complete which is 70% done and hopefully I can finish up today.  I keep forgetting to pick stuff up for the package when i go out shopping, which has been happening to me a lot lately.

I am wicked pumped though, I took the day off from work yesterday and went to the local library and got a few craft books which I got some great inspiration from!

I'm still working on package 1. Had some job interviews recently in the city of Cologne 2 hours drive from here. Also apartment-hunting which turns out harder than I thought it would be. When you find a nice apartment they have one date for showing, so like 50 people come to see the apartment at the same time. It's like a casting. Hate it. Besides I'm preparing our civil wedding (church will be in Autumn so faaaaar away).
However, I'll focus on the swap this weekend before driving down to Cologne again on Monday to see two more apartments.

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I ordered a material on-line.  Never received a confirmation e-mail from them.  Hope it hasn't been lost in cyberspace :/

I had my last final today and am officially done with my first semester of college! I'll have plenty of crafting time now, and plan to be working very diligently this week on this swap and another one.  Smiley

I went and got "something from my favorite store" yesterday.  THAT was dangerous cause I could spend HOURS in there! Also finished up something kinda fun today so technically I'm ready to send...but I'm going to give it the weekend in case something else brilliant comes to me.  Smiley

I've got a new website! www.thisbirdsabsurd.com and I'm still on Etsy www.thisbirdsabsurd.etsy.com

I was three items away from having everything wrapped and boxed to take to the post office next week when I realized I hadn't taken pictures of anything. Ugh!!
I am setting it aside until next week as I work the next couple days.
Oh well.
