Hi! You all are going to love the stuff I have seen from this swap so far! It is awesome!

I just wanted to start a progress thread for this swap. I am going to amend the directions a little (to rob from Nancy's Rare Character ;) ). You can make 1 photo mat & 1 photo frame, or 2 frames, or 2 mats. Then, in addition to whatever pairing of that you decide to make, you will make two other elements. The list is found in the original sign-up thread along with what holiday you signed up for in each group:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1146656&page=1

The deadline for these to be at my house is October 14th. I will wait a week to mail them and then send all of your goodies on to you! :thumbsup2

Here is the list of swappers, along with the groups you are in. Again, your holidays are listed in that original thread. If I don't have your address, please pm it to me! Thanks!

I have my paper and I got my embellishments yesterday for 40% off! Sweet! :cool1: Other than that, I have nothing started. I will though. (I just got 400 pictures from Shutterfly and I'm sorting them! Fun, but oh my, do I have my work cut out for me...)

07-20-2006, 07:20 PM
LOL! I have my ideas...but I have to finish 2 other swaps before I can even venture the holiday direction!!! Wait! I have 3 other swaps to finish!!! Although 1 is 2 sets short of being done.. But I promise to get it done.. Once school starts back I'll have time during the day!!! MOMMY TIME!! ;)

We just had a scrap store close in our area :guilty: , but I bought a ton of stuff for the swap on sale that I needed!!!! I, also, have worked on a part of my elements and I'm sketching ideas.

I know my ideas for the Christmas group, but I put myself on a "no more shopping until we get back from Seattle at the end of the month," so I can't work on it yet. There is a store up there called Impress, that is a stamping store, but they carry a TON of punches, and so I am trying to save up for my visit. Not sure what I want to do for the 4th of July yet, but it will come.

AlexWyattMommy--I got your address. . .thanks!

KAMommy & I are going shopping tomorrow, and I have made a list so I can get all of my supplies for my swaps I have to finish. It sounds like you all are way ahead of me!! ;)

I did get my paper for this, and I found some clip art. I am also looking at some embellishments on line--thanks, YodasMom for that website (www.justbrads.com). They have some cool stuff!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! It is hard to think about Christmas/Thanksgiving type stuff when it is so HOT outside! :sunny:

Everyone have a great Sunday! :thumbsup2

And, come on up here.........It's supposed to be in the 50's tonight!
That probably won't last, though.

Please no one get mad a me. Please? :blush: But, I'm done with my holiday - Birthday. I won't mail them yet. Like you want to have my swap hanging around your house for 2 month. right. Anyway, I had my supplies and a night "off" - DH went to the movies, the kids to bed early. Thought I'd get started and I did. It was fun! Thanks for a great idea. Now I have ones to do that are due before this one. Yikes! :rolleyes1

(PrincessNancy - I guess there is no need to switch kids for this swap, maybe one of the others? :rotfl: )

Sounds like a pretty good deal. You'll cook and I get to play with paper all day? I like it. When do I leave? :lmao:

07-25-2006, 08:52 AM
Mickster--I am impressed! You are going to meet your "all swaps done by Labor Day" goal with no problem!!! Perhaps I could forward my supplies to you???

Since you're done, if you want to go ahead and send them, that would be fine. I just have bins in my scraproom that I divide each group into, so it wouldn't be a problem. Just let me know what you want to do! :thumbsup2

Mickster
07-25-2006, 10:56 AM
I have so many, I don't know if it can be done! I'm trying though. If you really don't mind me sending them, I will. I am afraid that DS will get the idea that they are for him. He's already asked me for the mats! Yikes! Thanks! I just need your address...

StitchIsOurHero
07-25-2006, 01:15 PM
Mickster--send them on!! :thumbsup2 I pm'd you the info! I can't wait to see them! :banana:

PrincessNancy96 & Tracks n Slabs--y'all are making me look even worse! I haven't even started yet!!! :rotfl2: I do have the stuff, though. . .just haven't found the time to start. Although, with the scrapping stuff scattered around my house like it is, you'd think all I do is work on this (actually, that might really be all I do! :rotfl: )

PrincessNancy96
08-15-2006, 10:03 AM

Thought I better check in with everyone before I go off to Florida/WDW on Friday....

I am done with my Christmas group, but haven't started on my 4th of July stuff yet, not really sure what I want to do besides a theme although I do have the paper.

I won't be back home until Sept 12, so no updates from me until then.

StitchIsOurHero
08-23-2006, 03:37 PM

YodasMom
09-03-2006, 09:27 AM
Just wanted to clarify.........Are we still doing one photo mat and one frame, or do we have the option of doing two mats? Sorry for the confusion. I wasn't sure if this was one of the ones that was changed.

I've got all my stuff..........just need to finish a couple of others. I need to get this one done by early October, too.

Yes, you can do 2 mats, a mat and a frame, or 2 frames.. Your choice!! :)

StitchIsOurHero
09-03-2006, 02:41 PM
Thanks, Nancy, for clarifying! :thumbsup2 I hadn't had a chance to check in this morning! You're the best!!

I'm going to pm my address to everyone this week--we leave for WDW on the 12th :banana: , so I won't be in town when we reach the "one month until deadline" date. That way, if you're ready to mail, you can just send them on! :cheer2:

I am very excited about seeing the stuff for this swap! Everyone have a terrific Labor Day weekend! :cool1:

PrincessNancy96
09-03-2006, 03:05 PM

09-03-2006, 06:29 PM
That sounds great, Nancy! I'm trying to get all of my swaps and my circle journal done this weekend! I'm a bit :crazy: , but that's nothing new!!!

BTW, Nancy, how did parent's night go???

I hope everyone else is rolling right along with this swap! :moped:

PrincessNancy96
09-04-2006, 12:22 PM
Parent night went well for all the kids... I didn't go to the HS because DD had a meet...but I know DS15's teachers well..so he can do nothing I won't know about quickly!!! Everyone is doing well.. I did have to leave mid-parent night for ds10 because dd got home from her cross country meet early.. but she got her best time of the year so I told her maybe I shouldn't go any more!!! LOL Ran 1.9 miles in 15minutes 15 seconds! Woo hoo!!! I'd still be at the start line at 15 minutes pysching myself up to go!
Thanks for asking!!!

StitchIsOurHero
09-04-2006, 03:36 PM

Just a reminder--these are due a month from Thursday (can you believe October is that close???) I will be away from the computer from tonight until Saturday, so I'm not ignoring you if you check in and I don't respond! :teeth: Let me know if you need anything!!

Hey Brooke.......Just wanted to wish you a happy birthday and I hope you have a wonderful trip. If your weather is anything like ours (which it's probably not), you will be so happy to see the sunshine!!

Also, just as an update, I need to finish my circle journal (almost done) and one other swap this week, and then I will be working on getting my Rare Character swap and Holiday swap done and out hopefully by the end of the weekend of Sept 24.

Again, have a great time. :sunny:

One of my "kids" who graduated last year (and is 18) brought me a card today that said, "Remember when you were 18 and you thought 30 was SO old?" When you opened it up, it said, "you were right". :rotfl: How very nice! :rolleyes:

I hope you all have a terrific week!!! :sunny:

I just finished this one. There really isn't much Disney in my "4th of July" stuff though (more like hidden Disney), but I think the pieces are cute. And I want to explain the color selection in advance, cause it's not traditional "4th of July" colors, but there is still red, white, and blue :). DH and I got married on the 4th of July, and these were our wedding colors. I just can't separate the two celebrations anymore.

And with this swap done, I am now all caught up with my swaps! No more post-it's hanging off the side of the computer.

My brother is getting married this weekend, and it is one of those really big weddings (DH & I had a really small wedding). This week is wedding week and it is crazy around here! I know that by Sunday, I'll just want to hide out in my scrap room and work on stuff! ;)

Hey Brooke,

They are in the mail this time.. I have my receipt to prove it.. I was the first one at the post office this morning bright and early!!! So, they are on the way!!!

BTW, DD had her conference meet today...I did get to see her run!!! I missed the big announcement due to the ds' conflicts...but I called just in time to hear the announcement and kids screaming and one of the moms grab the phone from DD to tell me the news!!! How cool!!!! The boys and girls cross country teams both won their conferences!!!!! First time our girls have ever done that.. and 2nd year in a row for our boys!!! :banana: :cheer2: :banana:

A little less than 2 weeks until the due date. . .is everyone else doing ok?? PLEASE let me know ASAP if you need an angel!! :sunny:

Yep! I've been so crazy with the wedding stuff, that I haven't even had a chance to do anything but open the box and make sure everything travelled ok. I'll take a pic of it tomorrow and post! :thumbsup2

By the way, Nancy, thanks for getting me tagged to be IT!!! :rotfl2:

StitchIsOurHero
10-01-2006, 07:26 PM
alexwyattmommy--your stuff arrived on Friday!! It looks great!! I'm SO sorry that I didn't post earlier! It got here about 5 minutes before we went to my brother's wedding rehearsal/dinner. We have been gone with that all weekend, and I thought I had posted, but I didn't! I think I'm going :crazy: (perhaps I am already there!!!).

To the "getting in trouble" squad. . .expect pics tomorrow night of the balloon shaker! Now. . .off to find someone else to make them "IT"!! :lmao:

Ok, I couldn't stand the suspense! I had to go get the box from AlexWyattMommy out and look at everything! AMAZING WORK!!!!!! I love your Harvest theme stuff! Y'all will love this stuff!! Thank you, too, for all of the goodies!!

I took so many pics at the wedding--I don't know what we'll ever do with all of them. I just couldn't believe my "little" brother was getting married!

Nancy, we'll just tell B&MB that she's lucky we haven't started plotting to throw toilet paper all over each other's houses or something equally crazy!! :rotfl2:

:rotfl2: I guess the "new" thing around here is to saran wrap the cars!! They got someone at the football game Friday night!! I'm sure it took a while to get to their car!

Ok, are you still it; or did you tag someone else yet?

I hope everyone else is doing well with this! I am hoping to finish this weekend! I can't believe this is due a week from this weekend! It seems like October got here so fast!!

Have a great Monday, everyone, and please let me know if you need help/an angel/whatever!

Also, YodasMom, I have decided to tag you for our game of tag! Now, you're it, and I don't have to be any more! :rotfl2: Now, off to find some Saran Wrap. . .mwah hahahahahah!!!

Thanks for all your hard work hostessing, Brooke!! It was a fun swap......and if you need to ask permission to delay sending it out for any reason, that's fine with me! I appreciate all your updates.

Yes! Thanks so much for getting them back to me so quickly. They got here yesterday and as luck would have it I've caught a nasty cold and had to stay home from work today. Got all my Thanksgiving stuff done and I just have one Christmas element to finish and I'm done! I'll be mailing by the weekend.

Just checking in to say that I am almost finished (sort of... :rotfl2: ...sigh....)

I'll be working hard tonight (during LOST :happytv: ) and tomorrow (during Grey's :happytv: ) and over the weekend... Hopefully I'll be sending on Monday, baring any family disasters...and WHY do they all seem to happen when I have a deadline?

Anyway, this is a fun swap! Thanks for hosting!

OK, not I know you're not going to believe this, but I just had to share....

I was working on my Christmas swap items. I was in the living room, cause that's where the good TV lives...Ugly Betty was on as I was waiting for my real show...Grey's Anatomy... :happytv:

Anyway, I had to go back into my craft room to get something, and when I can back, there was the dog chewing....:dog:

OMG...MY DOG ATE MY SWAP... I started yelling, and she started chewing faster! :dogdance:

I'm not kidding...seriously... She was wagging her tail and chewing away. :dogdance: And now I don't have any of that paper left, so I'm back at the beginning...GRRRRRRRRRRRR... :furious:

The dog is still alive...but she wasn't so happy as I was yelling and looking in her mouth...gone...she was trying to suck up to me for the rest of the night, but I was having none of it...I don't know what possessed her :confused3 , but she had a nice little "Christmas" dessert. So, I guess I know how I'm spending my weekend....Sheesh.... :sad2:

StitchIsOurHero
10-06-2006, 06:37 AM

10-06-2006, 09:20 AM
I can so see my dog doing that. LOL My cat has always dug in the trash can for strips of paper to play with well now my lovely dog has decided she wants to play too but her idea of playing is eating all the paper. So now once I'm done playing for the day I have to take my craft room trash can and empty it into the kitchen on with a lid on it. LOL If she could get on the table I think she would easily eat everything there.

On to good news. They are installing the counter to my new craft room today so I will be working on finishing up the swap this weekend and will get it in the mail next week.

That'll work, Buffy! I hope your week is calmer this week! :sunny:

If you have not checked in up 'til this point, please, please check in. The due date is this coming Saturday (the 14th), and there are still a few people I have not heard from at all. I know this is a busy time of year for everyone, and I want to make sure we are all good to go. PLEASE pm me if you need an angel.

I am going to mail out no later than the 21st. Since the due date is the 14th, I would love to have everything here by then, and I could mail out sooner. I have lots of stuff going on this month (how does the fall get so crazy?? :rolleyes: ), so it will go out no later than the 21st. The good news is that if you are on a push to get this year's scrapping done before Christmas, you'll have your holiday stuff here to do it. Now, if you're like me and you're trying to get 2004 done in time for this Christmas. . . :rotfl2:

Have a great Columbus Day, everyone, and PLEASE check in and let me know all is ok or let me know if you need help!

ETA: I pm'd the people who I haven't received from yet--I know some of you have checked in on the thread, and I really appreciate that! :thumbsup2 Thanks for keeping me updated! :cool1:

Buffy, just send it priority. It never takes yours a long time to get here. KAMommy is angeling a spot for me, so it will take her a couple of days to get back from vacation and get it done. We'll still be on track to go out the next week. :thumbsup2

Quinn222--your stuff came yesterday! It looks terrific!!! :cheer2:

StitchIsOurHero
10-13-2006, 08:02 PM
NO WORRIES!!! Please breathe and don't stress! PBLM--you don't have to overnight them, just send them priority and they'll get here probably by Tuesday or so. KatDisney, if it takes until Tuesday or Wednesday, just take your time. I know you're working on them, and since I am angeling a couple, we'll probably be using those few extra days, too. I'm hoping to mail by next Sat., just because my weeks after that are crazy (I have no idea how I manage to schedule that much junk in one time period!). To borrow a quote from RealMickeysGirl--"breathe and wait for the glue to dry and then mail them".

Thanks, everyone, for letting me know how everything is going. I know you all are going to love the stuff from this!!!

PBLM--I'll be on the lookout for yours! No worries about the regular priority thing. . .that'll be just fine!! We're still on schedule to be out this weekend. It may be Monday of next week, though, because I just got called in to work (at the part-time job where I worked this summer) for Saturday. If I can get them sorted, DH will take them to the post office, though. I'll keep you posted!

I am going to post this same message on three threads, but I don't want to type it over and over (gotta love copy and paste). SIOH, you actually already know this...

Anyway, I am admittedly running much later than I like to do (never want to make a hostess worry - been there, done that, no fun). I do apologize. I was sick for about two weeks and then went on vacation. BUT I am putting off my vacation album, which is really hard ;), and finishing swaps this weekend. As we speak, almost everything is cut and prepped for assembly on Saturday. I plan to mail priority on Monday, but I will post again for certain when I do.

Again, I am so sorry if I made you worry. I was too sick to post, and you all know that is bad!

StitchIsOurHero

Sorry everyone for being late. One of my coworkers had to take an emergency leave and I've had to cover both jobs. To many hours spent at work! It's 4 a.m. and I just woke up and remembered the deadline was last Saturday. I can get these mailed Priority Mail and get them out. I PMed Brooke to ask her if I'm not to late to do this. Hope this isn't holding anyone up for a page that their working on.

Ok, here's an update on where we are: I have 5 packages are still out. Two are postal and should be here any day. One is going postal today, I think. The other 2 are going postal today or tomorrow, I think, and I will pm them to be sure. I will probably have to wait until the first of next week to get them mailed out, or maybe even mid-week, since I have to work this weekend. Just wanted to keep you updated! :thumbsup2

I am so ticked at myself that I did not get myself in a Christmas group! Everything from all of the groups in this swap is gorgeous, and I am so excited to use it, but somehow I missed the Christmas ones! Oh well, I guess it's an excuse to have another holiday swap after the new year! ;)

10-20-2006, 07:27 AM
Ok I now feel silly. I knew when I was making my Christmas items that somethig was missing but couldn't figure it out. Well last night I was cleaning up some and found the cute Christmas buttons I was going to use. LOL oh well I'll hold onto them for the next one.

StitchIsOurHero
10-20-2006, 08:57 PM
Ok, just wanted to give you all an update! We are just short 4 packages right now--2 are in the mail, and 2 should be postal by the first couple of days of next week. I am going to fix the boxes tomorrow night or Sunday, and then probably start sorting. My new mailing date will probably be either next Thursday/Friday (I'm off Friday) or Saturday. I'm sorry! I know that's a little behind our original schedule, but I wanted to keep you updated on where we are! I will probably follow Nancy's lead and send out the packages that are completed first if we are getting close to those days and I don't have the other two.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! :teeth:

Ooh, PBLM, I'm jealous! I loved MVMCP, and I've been trying to get DH to go back for it! ;)

Ok, here's the status update. I just wanted to keep us all on the same page. I have 2 that are postal and on the way to my house. I have 2 others that I have pm'd to check mailing status. I am going to KAMommy's on Saturday (the 28th) and we are going to sort these. She has graciously volunteered to help me!!! :banana: I will mail these no later than Monday morning (the 30th). I am trying to give everyone time to get them here, but I will have to mail those by then in order to clean my house for people to come over! :rotfl2:

Have a great week, everyone, and thanks for doing this swap! I promise, you're going to love it!!! :thumbsup2

I just got home from the airport, I am beyond exhaustion but wanted to check in. I did notice though that some of my things did not get in the package. I had to leave in such a hurry and was leaving directions for my sweet husband. Im sorry for the missing pieces. But I am glad some of it got there :)

KatDisney--I'm glad you made it home ok! I just glanced at the stuff and didn't compare it to the thread. Are some of the groups missing? If they are, just put them in the mail tomorrow if possible, and I'll be able to drop them in Monday or Tuesday before I mail them out.

Thanks, everyone, for working so hard on this swap! I hope to get these back to you soon! Have a great evening!

ETA: Kathy, I looked in your package, and I think I am missing the Christmas group and either the 4th of July or the Memorial Day group. Are those the ones you still have? Just wanted to make sure! :wizard:

Go ahead and swap the holidays without my other 2 groups. I really doubt I will even venture out of the house today as I am just to tired. The things I sent were Halloween, 4th of July and Valentines day. I will just save these for the next one and hopefully you will do this one again it was aweseome. I just somehow lost all sense of time.

If you want you can take my spot in the christmas group :) and or the memorial day one.

Ok, Kathy. Thanks for letting me know. I've got someone who is going to angel your other 2 spots. That way, we will have those groups completed.

Just to give everyone one other update--KAMommy and I are going to sort tonight, as promised. I have someone who has volunteered to fill in a couple of the spots that I don't have stuff for. That person can have the stuff here by Wednesday, and I will have the boxes ready to add that stuff in and mail out no later than Thursday.

I feel like I have put you all off and put you all off, and for that, I apologize. I wanted to give packages time to get here, but it didn't work out that way. I will be mailing out completed packages on Monday/Tuesday, and everything will be out on Thursday. I am sorry this has been a hold up for everyone! Thank you again for participating. :teeth:

Not a whiner!!! It's the weather change, the time change and the fact that we are ready to the holidays and things to slow down a little!!!! :)

Ok, here's an update. I am angeling KatDisney's 2 spots, PixieDust32's 2 spots, and fanofthemouse's 5 spots. I know that Kat has checked in, and I appreciate that! :thumbsup2 Thank you, too, to the people who volunteered to take those spots!

I have pm'd the other 2 people. One of them was postal 2 weeks ago, but I haven't received it. I needed all of them by today to get them sorted (66 entries is a bit much to sort! :rotfl: ). Unfortunately, I am just going to have to send their boxes back if they arrive. I apologize for this. . .I hate for anyone to invest time and $ and not be in the swapping part, but I don't know what else to do.

I hope you all understand! :)

You are not whining! It is really hard to be a hostess when people do not fallow through on their end of the bargin.
Thanks for all your hard work!

Thanks, Shawna! :thumbsup2 Did you get my pm? Does it look right to you? Just checking! Cherie & I are going to work on the ones that we didn't get angeled.

Thanks again, everyone! :teeth:

After many hours of sorting fun, this one is sorted and packaged! I am holding on the groups that have someone angeling in them, and then the others are ready to go. I will make a post office trip on Monday with the ones that aren't holding for something. Everything else will go by Thursday p.m. when the angel stuff arrives.

Thank you all again for being so patient and understanding (and for listening to my whining this afternoon)! I also have to give a BIG thank-you to my angels, KAMommy, MickeyTeacher, and Mickster, and also a BIG thank-you to KAMommy for helping me sort (was that crazy, or what?) and to our DH's for carrying the multitude of boxes to the car.

I am off to bed right now, but we will put the pics up tomorrow! Have a great evening!

My angel spots are done. :cool1: :cool1: :cool1: They will go in the mail on Monday morning.
I'm off to bed as the kids will be up in a few hours and DH is not home from work yet- so I will have to get up with them.

Right on sister. I know it is hard, but a deadline is a deadline. This is the only way to stop some of the flaking....

Thanks, ladies, for your support. Thanks, Shawna--I can't wait to see your items! I will make a thread today (after DH finishes watching a movie so he can upload the pics :teeth: ), and I'll mark which boxes are postal when (similar to Nancy's Rare Character!).

Please, if you don't mind, let me know when your package gets to you. This swap produced some of the most beautiful items I have ever seen--I'm actually inspired to get the pics out and use them! I'm such a swapaholic that that's saying something!

Happy Sunday, everyone! :sunny:
