Finished! I have the worst migraine of my life yesterday & had to take today off of work. I was able to put the finishing touches on everything while recovering. Smiley

All done and sent! I had to hurry up and mail the package, because one of the things I could've kept adding to FOREVER. And I hope it all arrives intact, since I know firsthand what packages go through in the mail (I work for USPS).

Also, thank goodness for library computers. Tongue

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Ah, hell!! Sad I didn't realize send outs were today. Yesterday and today were... total days from hell, continuation and escalation of my emotional crisis of the past 4 months. I will get my items finished & mailed by Monday or Tuesday. I'm sorry Sad

My crafty mojo has bit the dust. Recent acitivity: I volunteered to make some PJ pants for some old lady from church who went to a nursing home a couple months ago so I made a pattern from a pair and cut out stuff to make like 11 pair but only got 6 pair done and sent to her. This weekend I don't know what happened, I saw the box and knew I had to work on the MOH swap but crazy old lady pants called to me. Or maybe it was the tote. "Hey lady, get me outta your house. I'm tired of your asshole kids climbing on me all the time." Either way, Friday I just started making old lady jamas and when I was done I started cutting all the scraps into squares and pieced together 4 lap quilts for her, too. This may all be beside the point. I've been thinking for 2 weeks and I've been stumped with this swap. So today after I get all the old lady stuff done and a little bit of a nap (while Jo was down and the other kids were watching Betty Boop, I'm not as bad as a mom as you may think, and I'm still sleep deprived so F off ALRIGHT?!) I start thinking about what I've been thinking about for this swap. I only have 1 holiday done and have 3 left. So I've been thinking... Houseplant cozy for House Plant Appr'n Day? Nah, that's lame... Everything's along those line then something comes and yeah, that's a good idea, then somethign else and yeah, that's good too, I have all this stuff... and then while browsing Pinterest boards for the OPS I get inspiration for another holiday, sweet! I'm browsing and thinking how good everything looking, I can send out by Monday no problem, Tuesday at the latest, that's not too bad, right? Wrong. All the holidays I've settled on happen to be in February. What about January, Jessie, you lazy B? Dang it! We'll see where I get with 2 of these ideas and then see what else strikes my fancy that I think will strike ChameleonHounds as well.

Did I mention I'm a little sleep deprived? Sorry bout that. Am I coherent?

Well, sendouts were yesterday and I haven't finished a single thing Sad I started off so well, then my f*cking head went AWOL and farted all at the same time (sorry folks - but making fun of my depression is the only way I can cope with it at times) which meant that life didn't happen let alone crafting Sad

Was just about bedtime last night when my mojo kicked the depression into touch (well, for a little while at least) and I got one item 80% done - so thats 2 that just need finishing off. Not good, but better than it could be.

Grovelling apologies to crazyda79 for being late, but hopefully now I've got this far the rest should be easier. (I'll make sure and fill up the parcel with extras too Smiley)

And Jexxican - sleep deprivation is used as torture, and children are so go at making us sleep deprived  Angry bless their souls, and yes - perfectly coherent Smiley

ACK! I received! It's amazing! Go look! I need to start working harder to get the [late] return package back out the door.
