Sp 12 Question 6

What is you favorite type of project to take on vacation? Scarf, stuffed toys, anything easy and small.

So, the windows in my house have been installed but now that the frames are a bit larger than the original, the blind sthat we use to have don't fit! So off to go curtain shopping and it seems nothing will go. Right now I have black card board paper I got from the dollar store blocking the light from entering my room cuz my windows faces east. I would post up pictures form when I Mother insisted on having ALL the furnitures covered in plastic to keep dust off except that I had packed away the USB cord when I was moving stuffs form my room to my Mother's room and I can't remember where I had put it cuz I still haven't had time to un pack the stuff in my room yet, I just moved them back into my room so my Mother can walk to her bed without hitting something of mine. So no pics yet.

SP 12 Question #5

1)Where is your favorite place to go for vacation? Japan, cuz KAT-Tun is there. They're in the mist of a concert tour till mid-Aug.
2)Where is one place you would like to go ? Greece

So I had a very interesting week. First I started to move all my furniture in a house to 4 feet away from the windows cuz Iam getting new windows installed on Thursday. Which means my house is in a mess. Then last Wednesday I find out my computer is not working. So I called my friend to see if he had time to help me with it. I finally got my computer home last night at 11:30 cuz I worked 2 jobs yeasterday, though both were only for like 6 hours. VERY HAPPY that I have my computer back and working. I had been watching this Japanese vampire movie and wa sonly half way done last week. Also, my brother had given me a scare by thinking that my Hard drive was dead which meant that EVERYTHING in my computer was gone. Thank God it wasn't the case.

Just heard from my SP12 pal tha tI will be gettign 2 more packages ^_^ Very excited!!!. I like parcels!

The pal I'm spoiling had received her first package form me as well. I like it when parcels arrive. I had one parcel lost before and am still a little upset by it U_U.

Swap Softly 2!!!

Thank you Delly for setting it all up.

What will be required:
You have to MAKE a softy. If you want to throw in a bonus purchased softy, that’s your thing, but the main requirement is that you actually build something.
This softy should not be smaller than your fist (like, 3.5″ tall) and should not be larger than a shoe box (12″ tall). There’s no cost requirement, but consider while you’re creating your critter what you would want someone to send to you, and give likewise. But do remember that you will be mailing it to someone, so don’t forget to make it light so it doesn’t cost you a million dollars to send it.
Your item could be crocheted, knit, sewn, or been created by stabbing wool with mighty sharp needles. Or anything else you can think of that would make it fun for you and your recipient.
The THEME is GREEN! We want something that’s constructed out of either something already in your stash, or something that’s second-hand and recycled into something new, or all-natural materials. And if you want to include extra gifts, we encourage you to give something you purchased from a local business (support local industry and introduce someone new to an interesting local product).
Sign ups started June 25th, and close Wednesday, July 9th at 11:59 pm Mountain Standard Time; that being said, Delly won’t be able to respond to your sign-up e-mails until July 4th as she’ll be in the land of dial-up…there is an out-of-office type of acknowledgment hooked up though. We’ll let you know who you’re matched with by July 12th, and you’ll have until August 12th to mail it off.
You don’t need to have a blog to sign up, though it is preferred as it will be easier for your pal to get to know you and what you like.
Sound good? If you can honestly commit, please e-mail and let her know:
your name
your mailing address
your blog address
your e-mail address
your internet nickname (because we’ll post the blogs up on the side bar and if you don’t want your real name out there for all the world to see we’ll respect that)
your favourite colour, animal, cartoon and/or children’s book
your style preference such as cutesy, kitschy, traditional, creepy, etc.
whether or not this softy could be subjected to the whims of children and therefore shouldn’t involve any beads or other small bits
whether or not you have a fibre allergy or food allergies should your partner want to tantalize your taste buds as well as your fingertips.
if you want to ship within your own country or you want an international pal
if you would be willing to be an angel should some one choose to flake out (but none of you would do that right?)
Yay! Swap on, redux!

Silly me I still haven't signe dup for it yet myself ^_^. Doing that now.
