Willpower? What is that?

Its a good thing I have no interest in drugs, alcohol, smoking, or anything else that is bad for my health because I apparently have NO willpower! Maybe that weakness only applies to fluffy animals and fabric? Lets hope so!

... here is my dirty little secret I am ready to confess to you all...

I SIGNED UP FOR ANOTHER SWAP!

Yes, you can start throwing the rocks and heckling me now - especially after Monday's post about not signing up for anything new, espec. this specific swap... *sigh*

Here were my thoughts... " No ... no... maybe? ... no... AHHHH SIGNING UP RIGHT NOW!!" :)

So, here is my inspiration collage for the Pretty Little Pouch Swap:

PLPS Inspiration - Round 3

All addicts are good at justifying their habits, and here is my justification:

I have 2 more charity quilts to complete but I like working on something small in between.

Although I am still working on my Pillow Talk Swap item, I got 50% of the top done yesterday and I only
need about 3 or 4 more crafting sessions to finish it before Nov. 1st.

As my friend Bree pointed out... I am really making something for myself, since I will send this to someone and get something in return. As my husband pointed out, it still costs me shipping, and could be something awful... but who really thinks about that in a swap? You hope someone will do their best and take your mosaic and favorites into consideration and make something cute.

Its a chance to think outside the box, make something without personal expectations, experiment....
... and really, all this boils down to the fact that I'm weak weak weak and just really wanted to play along this round :)

Its a pouch.... one little pouch.... please don't judge me as harshly as I am judging myself hehehe. And please tell me I'm not the only weak one that signs up for WAY too much ;-)

Bree said...

Welcome to the dark side! ;) Yes, you are out shipping, but for something small & light it'll be cheap. I've never seen anything I wouldn't be happy to receive in this swap, so I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Bree sounds like an enabler- which we all need. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I considered signing up for this one again, but when it comes down to it -- they make me nervous! : )

I'm having a new fabric giveaway, I hope you stop by!

I still haven't taken the plunge and signed up for a swap yet. I'm a little scared about not being able to get to it, or totally forgetting! I would feel soo bad to let someone down who worked on something totally awesome for me.

I'm loving you inspiration board for it though!
