Are we all supposed to mail right around Oct 10, or before then, whenever we finish?

October 10 is the last day, but if you’re finished with both of your houses then I have no problem with you sending out early. If you could send them both on the same day, that would be excellent for my records.

I usually have a month for crafting because… I dunno, I think I’ve always done that for this swap? It’s good for those who can only weekend craft as well. Or if you have to order supplies, let paint dry, etc. :laughing:

I’m gathering supplies now. I have so many ideas floating around that I need to narrow them down and get working. This weekend I plan to get a lot done.

I ordered some paper I didn’t have in my stash. I used to think digital paper was silly, but I can find a wider array of designs on Etsy and just print them off at Office Depot on cardstock. I can’t do textures unless I use an embossing folder here at home… hmm…

I ordered some little domes for the ornament exchange; they were supposed to arrive in one to two weeks. Three weeks later, they tell me they’ve been shipped. They should arrive almost exactly at the end of the swap.

This is why I HAVE to have such a huge stash!

Yes! That is basically what happened with this stamp. After the time when it was supposed to have been shipped passed I went back to the webpage and it said that she was shipping late on all items, but didn’t want to close her store and to let her know before you buy something if you need it right away. It ought to have said that in the thank you blurb as well, but that’s my opinion. I was a bit peeved. Oh well. The stamp is cool, I can use it on something else.

That is really annoying, they should have upgraded your shipping to priority for no charge.

Actually, I’m picking up at the store, they aren’t even shipping them to my house.

Ironically, they got the “domes” in stock after I ordered, but I couldn’t buy them because then I’d have too many!

My upcoming work schedule is whack so I wanted to get my houses done this week. I had today off and have been crafting nonstop since I got up this morning :sweat_smile:. Anyway, I am delighted to say they are both finished! I secretly want to keep them, and am also not so secretly very excited to send them off, hopefully tomorrow!

Who do you usually buy your digital ephemera from?
I’ve used geckogalz and arttealife on Etsy in the past with pretty good success. Takes a lot of ink though.
And itKuPiLLiimaginarium. Really cool stuff.

It was more, “Does this have the specific pattern that I’m looking for?”

We have our first sender! A link to the gallery is at the top of the first post, above the image. Exciting!

I have a concept, I just need to start playing with it. Time to cut some cardboard!

I LOVE itKuPiLLiimaginarium, haven’t ordered anything yet, it’s so hard to narrow it down (I know they’re not something real expensive, but it’s kind of like the dollar store…you keep adding things to your cart because it’s only a dollar…then you get to the register and wonder how your total is $75 :laughing:

I have purchased some Halloween designs from PixieTalesTreasury, and Likeinkdrops, and a while ago I purchased some antique doll printables from Store4Fun to make tags for my SIL (she collects antique dolls), and some fantasy house printables from TRPrintDesigns.
I’ll have to check out geckogalz and arttealife.
