I'm glad to see you! I know crafting will help you heal faster, so two spots each should get you back on your feet in no time at all! I'll add your name right now :)

SybilMcC 08-25-2012 05:27 PM

I'll take two spots in Christmas. Are these just to be the regular wood clothespins I bought a bazillion of for the last swap and only used 6?

SybilMcC 08-25-2012 05:29 PM

Oh never mind. I see above that you said either/or.
Mine will be the regular wood clothespins I bought a bazillion of.

Why yes, those would be the ones. So that's 1 bazillion - six = ?

Math makes my head hurt....you just have a bunch left. good thing we have another round, huh?

Actually minus more than that for the ones I BROKE trying to get the clip off and then back on. (To say nothing about a couple of fingernails and a pinched thumb.) That was an experience until I learned how to do it. I swore if I ever got those done I would never..........but they turned out so CUTE! I think I will do them differently this time, coloring them without taking the clip off. Lots of ideas floating around in my wee little brain.

CherryLime 08-25-2012 08:59 PM

mzkangak 08-25-2012 10:38 PM

I dyed mine with Rit dye. I didn't occur to me to take them apart. That's a lot of work.

Good morning Miss Sunshine! I hope to do half as well as you did with this swap. Thanks so much for letting me host the holiday round. You just relax and have fun this round - you earned it! I'm adding you now :)

craftidomesticdiva 08-26-2012 04:31 AM

Joyce, you are so sweet. Now stop cuz your gonna make me cry! ;) You are already an amazing hostess, so no worries!!

Thanks for putting me down to play a relaxing round! Hey, I'm kinda like Vanilla Ice - throwing down some rhymes early this morning. You can just call me The Sunshine Rapper! LOL Ok, I'll stop! :rolleyes:

I think I saw somewhere that you said you used Rit dye, but it was after I had over thought and overworked and messed up and was ready to scream.
I will probably use Rit dye or something this time without taking them apart.

texasyaya 08-26-2012 10:22 AM

Joyce a couple of ?'s before I commit to this.
1. Can we make something using a Jumbo Paper Clip?
2. On the binder clips is there any particular size the most people use, I have some very tiny ones and some much bigger ones.
3. How hard is it to find wooden clothes pins, I guess I need to check on that?

Can you tell I'm really considering this.

libreeder@aol.com 08-26-2012 11:02 AM

Spots Requested
 
I would like two spots on Christmas and one spot in other holidays.

1. I don't have a problem with the Jumbo Paper Clips.
2. On the Binder Clips, I use the Medium size the most.
3. Walmart has the wooden clips for cheap - easy to find.

I'm adding you now :) Glad your here - I tried to give you a good long due date just in case you needed it.

Sporty_Mom 08-26-2012 02:34 PM

HI! I would love 2 spots in Christmas (for now). I may join the "other" holiday, but let me plan the first 2 Christmas spots first!! Thanks!!

ajmac 08-26-2012 02:37 PM

I'll try one spot in each category.... are there pictures anywhere of last year's submissions? Would love a visual....

Jmaraul 08-26-2012 02:42 PM

Hi chickie :)

If you look at the first post for the swap below, Peggie had some great examples for us to see. They were a lot of fun and go together quickly. I'm adding you now - have fun. If you have any questions, let me know.

Who's going to join us today?

nsmac1 08-27-2012 05:42 AM

erg I WANT to but I really need to get my other swaps made and shipped first. BUT that being said you did say you could combine shipping and that means I could do the same when shipping to you since I do have my calendars i gotta make and ship to you anyways.... I'm SERIOUSLY considering it.....I'll get back to you.

venus@home 08-27-2012 05:59 AM

I'll take one spot in each section, please!

Jmaraul 08-27-2012 06:14 AM

Sabrina...Yep - combined shipping is a beautiful thing. I'll work with you to make it all come out right.

Venus - got ya added :wink: Have fun!

nsmac1 08-27-2012 07:20 AM

Okay sign me up Ill take two spots one in Christmas and one in "other". Most likely Halloween as that's what I'll be working on in the next while and LOVE halloween. I'll be doing clothes pins as someone else said I still have a zillion minus 6 from the last clip swap HAHAHA.
