My crafting is going to start slowing down a bit for a while. We are going to be moving around the end of Janurary, and we have a LOT to do between now and then. We need to get one of the side fences fixed, fly screens put in on all windows (I think that is what hubby said), the roof fixed because there are some cracked tiles and it causes the ceiling to leak in a few places, fix a few holes in the ceilings from where it leaks, insulation put up in the roof, a new a/c put in, LOTS of yardwork to do, and not sure what else. And we need to do as much of that as we can before we put our house up for sale. And hubby wants to try and do that in a months time. Eeek! So we are going to be pretty busy.
We're excited though. We are going to move back down to Tasmania, which is where we lived before moving here to Queensland in 2006. It's really an answer to prayer!
But I will try hard and get things added to my selling blog when/if I can get the chance. And I am still trying to finish up a few ornies for some swaps I am doing. :-)
I have 6 ornies left to swap! If anyone is interested in doing an ornie swap with me, please let me know, and I will get back to you. You will be sending to Australia. All you have to do is swap with me one handmade ornie. That's it! And you can send it anytime before the end of November. I'm still working on finishing mine up. :-)
OK, so I guess I will be doing an ornie swap through the forum, and another one that Pam from Cloth to Creation passed onto me. Thanks Pam!
So that leaves me with 7 ornies left. Would anyone be interested in doing a one on one swap with me? All you would have to do is send one handmade ornie to me (here in Australia) along with a Christmas card ( :-) ), and send around the last week of November.That gives us plenty of time to make something. If anyone is interested, let me know and I will get back to you.
The swap I was talking about was cancelled. Well, not totally, just changed to a one on one swap, because not too many people joined up. That's so disappointing. I was trying to get a head start, and have been working on 9 ornies to start with, now I don't know what I will do with these.
I was really looking forward to doing this swap, because I haven't done one before. I'll finish these 9 ornies, but not sure what I will do with them.
I'll hold onto them incase they get a few more people to join.
I'm a member of the Crow's Creet Primitive Gatherings forum and they are going to be doing a Christmas ornie swap. I really hope a lot of people join as I have never done a swap before, and I think it would be a lot of fun.
Now, I have a silly question. For those of you who have done ornie swaps before, is it ok to sign the ornies you make? You know, so the receiver will know who made that particular ornie?
Hope the month has started out well for you! Can't believe how this year has gone by so fast, especially the last couple of months! My folks came to visit us in August and stayed for 6 weeks - they left 2 weeks ago, and it's been sad not having them here.
I never did find the safety pins I was wanting. But I happened upon a bag of ones I can rust up. But for some reason I am having a heck of a time trying to get them to rust. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I will persist!
Also, thank you all for checking out my selling blog. I do appreciate it as well as the kind comments! :-)
