I'm glad it's been uplifting for people, I have loved it too Smiley.
More than 2 have contacted me about sending after the weekend so I'll extend send outs to Monday. Hopefully that's enough time and takes off some of the pressure, this should be a stress-free fun time for all Smiley.

I'm so happy to see this - I have one item pretty much done and I had mostly finished the other before I left town but then discovered that I'd made a dire mistake and would have to completely redo a huge part of it.  It is quite a relief not to have to try to cram everything into tonight in order to send by tomorrow; even though these are 'small' I tend to just work slowly (and I really want to run by a shop to see if they have something to incorporate into how one of them is displayed, which I haven't had the chance to do yet) so this extension is super helpful.  I did take my personal item on my trip and managed to get that finished so I will update the gallery with that.  Thanks for the extension!

I too appreciate the extension. Had some things come up so I'm a little behind where I had hoped to be by now. The breathing room is very much appreciated  Cheesy

So glad to have a little extra time to put on some finishing touches I didn't think I'd have time for! I am hoping to get it out tomorrow, but if not, Monday for sure!!

Oh my goodness, I am so stuck with making something for myself. Seriously, what is my problem? Am I hung up on it being a grand fantastic gigantic effort or something like that? Urgh! I am going to get out some paints and make myself a simple little ATC just to get it out of the way. My perfectionism and over-the-toppery are gumming up my jam, man. I need an intervention! LOL.

How is everybody doing, do you think you'll be ready to send by Monday? How about the thing for you, are you stuck like me or have you got something planned/in the works?

I might have the opposite problem? I didn't have any plans for my own thing, and then I realized that I had already been working on something that exactly fit the bill. The thing is it might be too large for this swap at this point? It's an embroidery, and I've spent quite a few hours on it. I just don't want my partners to feel cheated that I made this larger-scale thing for myself!

Thinking/hoping I'll be ready Monday, had to start over several times and didn't get a chance to work on them yesterday Angry (waiting on drying right now, so taking a break).

I had started a 4 X 6 thing some time ago that I intended for an affirmation, so I may just finish that (if that's allowed) otherwise, yeah, an ATC or simple /plain 4 X 6 it will be  Wink

I think whatever size the thing is that you make for yourself is fine, the entire point was to set aside time to give to ourselves after all. Sometimes that's only a few minutes, sometimes it's a longer time. So long as we pay attention to our needs too now and then, be encouraging to ourselves, be a kind friend, that's all good.

I started stitching something for myself last night and since I've finished off all my other swap obligations I can actually focus on it for the rest of today. I hope to have a photo to post tomorrow.

Doing a little calculating...

Participants = 20
Parcels in this swap = 38
Parcels sent = 21
Parcel still to be sent = 17
Items people have made for themselves = 4

That's amazing!
