Thoroughly stalked my partner, I think I have my ideas completely formulated, now to see if I can execute them. I'm trying a few new things for this swap.

well after my huge initial burst..i have ground to a halt...but hopefully the weekend will see me getting the large finished

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

Picked up two more things for an item today.  This weekend will be when I get started on everything.  Have also been looking up tutorials for a certain wishlist item that I have never made before but think I can manage IF I find a simple enough pattern.

i just need to finish up one little thing, then i'll be done with my small. still have to go shopping for the large, though.

And your scared to death that you are never going to come alive.

Got a bunch of supplies yesterday for my large, and with a couple of slow weeks coming up I'm hoping to get a lot done. Cheesy

Deciding what to make for my partner has proven to be a bit tricky... but I think I've got it figured out!

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Well...I've been working on an item every night since we got partners.  Oftentimes, crafting is my stress reliever, and I'm grateful to have one that is not unhealthy for you  Wink and you end up with something useful.

For at least the next week or two, life is going to be pretty stressful for me.  Our TWO MONTH (tiny) bathroom Reno is done, which means that I will be using Saturday, Sunday, Monday, And Tuesday to thoroughly clean the house from the two months of construction dust.  So probably not any crafting, or very little, going on for those four days.

Then, on Wednesday, I will be starting work in a different center in the agency I work for.  I had planned on ASKING for a transfer anyhow, but was completely taken off guard when I was TOLD this morning that I was being transferred.  I'm thinking that after Tuesday, a whole lot of crafting will be going on as I adjust.

Please send kind thoughts my way that everything works out well in my new placement.

For those of us that are still stalking...maybe we can throw out some additional information. Smiley

What's your favorite song and musician and kind of music?  I love what used to be known as punk or alternative, right now every time I hear a song I like it's by Maroon 5.  The funny thing is that I always think I don't like them.lol

What kinds of jobs have you had and what was your favorite?  I've had a lot, I'm very well-rounded. Cheesy Cheesy Wink  Here goes:

fast food management
retail management
grocery store cashier/worker/manager
office secretary
fudge maker (on Mackinac Island in Michigan)
hotel maid
skateguard (roller rink)
daycare provider in my home
jobs at a college: secretary, placement testing coordinator, dental clinic receptionist, student life coordinator and some recruitment

My fave? I've learned a lot from each of them, but I do love what I do now the best - student life coordinator with recruitment
