ok, I don't have time to read soo many blogs and I keep an eye on about 10 daily. I haven't received my Halloween Swap partner and I realized this yesterday....a week after partners were suppose to be emailed out. So, I read the blog to find out, I'm suppose to contact the hostess again???? Le sigh. I guess I relied on the hostess who had already confirmed I was a part of the swap, to contact me if she needed more info. I guess I'm not doing this swap now....I'm sooo bummed....I love Halloween and was so looking forward to this. Even created something already for the swap, since I have to mail it out next week before I leave on vacation. I emailed the hostess just to be sure I'm still in. If not, I might have to host a mini swap, because I LOVE Halloween and I want to swap with someone :)
EDIT - UPDATE: Whooo Woooo -- it's really the simple things that make me happy.....the hostess from the Halloween swap emailed me and I now have a partner....it's suppose to be a secret :) So, once they receive their goodies from me, I can post what I made....YIPPIE!!!
What do you expect from a hostess? Being a hostess is a lot of work! I have done online swapping for over 9 years now. The hostess is the focal point of communication in my opinion. I can easily say, I spent at least 15 hours hosting my last round of the booty swap and I'm still working on it, 3 weeks after the send date. I know folks probably are tired of my emails, but it does help in creating a trust boundary with swappers. I've seen soo many swaps fall short and not all swappers receive items as expected.
Change of subject.....
Ya know crawdads do need to eat too....what do they eat?? Well, other fish bait of course...worms! Now watching 6 crawdads fighting over one long worm, to say the least, is highly entertaining. **shakes head**
Finished my round robin for tomorrow's class and did some cutting out of applique for a season quilt wall quilt I have a kit for. Trying to get as much as I can in over the next few days....2 weeks without a sewing machine is scary......as you can see I also have to get a lot of blogging in as well, so I've been a posting fool.
No pictures this morning, maybe later I'll post some....I know that is really what bloggers enjoy, seeing pictures :)
