Just to let you all know I'm here Smiley
Suffering with an ear infection, so lying with an onion bag on my ear and drawing up plans for Pinterest snooped extras Smiley

Oops! I've been lax about posting too. Sorry! Embarrassed An onion bag on your ear, P_E_S_T? Does that mean a bag of onions, or a bag that onions used to be in, or what? Or does the infection just make it feel like you have a bag of onions on your ear?

I do not envy your ear infection at all. This weekend was also a bust as far as swap-related making. I spent all day Sunday cleaning and reorganizing my crafts supplies in the hope of finding the turn crank for my polyclay pasta machine with no luck. Got a couple of UFOs done (hello, cushy cedar-filled dog bed! now Zombie can stop trying to crawl into my bed to get comfortable and the fleas will stop taking over), but it was the most frustrating kind of accomplishment because I couldn't get on to what I wanted/needed to do.

Finally found the crank handle at about 11 last night in a night table drawer in my room. Turns out my 2 year old niece had been trying to play with it when she visited back in March and her momma put it in there to get her to leave it alone. So now the next time I can convince hubby to take our kidlet for a few hours (hopefully tonight), I should be able to get some things done. I know it's unusual to have to use polyclay for a needlebook, but my plan won't work out without it.

I finally decided on what to do and began crafting my needlebook today! I'm excited about it. Smiley

I have everything all packaged up and plan to go to the post office tomorrow. This swap was lots of fun! Smiley

I'm not quite as far along as I had planned to be on the needlebook, but I'm quite pleased with the progress I've made so far.

Been crazy busy around here with the kids school coming to an end.  I've done a lot of crafting and just have a few touches before I send out.  All goes to plan I will send out early

I'm furiously studying for an exam in accounting which is this Friday. (It requires basic understanding of annual accounts. I have no understanding of this. At all. I am a law student, I understand laws.) But once that exam is over I think I'll award myself with a trip to the fabric store and then a luxurious afternoon of 0% studying and 100% crafting for this swap Smiley

I got my needlebook done, but now I am having swap anxiety.  Trying to decide if I should make a second as well?  Or just send a bunch of extras to make the package even better.


I am always up for a personal swap!

I'm sure no swap anxiety is called for, Dessadoll. If your needlebook seemed to easy to be good enough, that's because it was supposed to be easy. Just relax and enjoy being done!
