I've just finished my polar bear elements and I've done the letter "E" for Sea World. Hopefully I'll be able to finish the other letter tomorrow.

Erin -- that should be no problem, especially since that group is set up as a "you-chose-the-subject-group". Have fun with ET!

Great job. My house has room for any packages that want to be mailed early.

You''re right -- it is a tough one. When I was looking at images from a google search, what hit me was all the stone, how "old" it all looked, and swirls. I could see lots of inking on your pieces! Maybe take an idea from the architecture and use it to make elements -- columns, fountains, all the swirls.

Or get factual -- do a "Lyric" piece with facts about the area, list the attractions/shops/restaurants, etc.

Good luck -- I know the right idea will hit you!

I am on my last group. Working on Ollivanders and it's partially done. I finally got through my Lost Continent block thank goodness. I spent 2 full days on that 1 group. eek! Anyhow, no problem for me to finish on time.

So who was the silly Hostess that wanted people to check in over a holiday weekend? oh, that was me! Thanks Erin for keeping us on track!

Please let me know how you are doing and if we need to extend the deadline. A month and half seems to be going by awfully fast around here with the beginning of the school year!

I am making slow progress in my groups. I have two of my groups done and two are in progress. I could use a deadline extension but will have my items done in time if there is no extension.

Thanks for checking in. I'm in the same boat as you, I can get them done but an extension would fit into my schedule very well.

I really feel the time has flown since sign ups with school starting. When I planned this I felt like the 2 weeks of work time after school started would be enough, but as for me, I am dead and not worth anything the first week or two of school (you would think I would figure this out earlier each year -- I must block it!) Not the best time for creative juices to flow.

So I am extending this two weeks to a Due Date of October 10, please mail by October 3rd.

Hopefully this doesn't work to the detriment of anyone else, but I honestly
feel I should have scheduled more time into this swap from the beginning.

Mine are done and bagged and tagged. I just have to get to the post office. I'm hoping that I will be able to get there on Saturday.
