Mount Pleasant, PA(Zone 6a)

I'm still painting! Should be dry enough to do more work on it tonight. So far my nosy kitties have left it alone. Though my craft bin is in unusual disarray & one of them is now sparkly. Pretty sure she's not a vampire cat.

Holly Springs, NC(Zone 7b)

It's a blustery day here in central North Carolina but I've managed to get a 2nd coat of water seal on my pot. I'm really excited about who I'm decorating for because the match is perfect. I can't wait for the 'fun' part to begin!

Mount Pleasant, PA(Zone 6a)

How are everyones pots coming along? I think I'm going to need every second I can spare up to the mail date! Did some more detail work tonight when I got home. Waiting on some drying time so I can add some more touches before bed. I went with straight paint work & am painting a scene on the pot. My paint skills aren't OMG fantastic but I love doing it. I hope my buddy likes it. The background is a color they mentioned as a preferred color so fingers crossed. :) Going to scount goodies to add into the pot & look for a box this week. Probably Thurs. Just 1 more week to the mail date. You can mail anytime the week of the 5th I don't expect everyone to rush the postoffice. :)

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Still working on mine, hope they dry enough to pack for shipping.

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I Have mine Packed & Ready to go out but not sure if i should mail out till after all the storms are over with . there are so many Planes, trains, Buses, fedx, ups, usps, delays all over the country side . going to keep watch . will send CONF if it goes out.

Hamburg, PA(Zone 6b)

I'm in storm area...and I can't work on mine today because we are staying out of town for 2 days. Forgive me if mine is delayed in shipping. I think it will be dry and ready to pack by the week of the 5th :-)

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Don't worry Kim, your safety is number 1!

Mount Pleasant, PA(Zone 6a)

OK since the entire east coast is turning into a disaster. Partially perpetuated my the media fanning the flames of panic. Partially because of this storm which I am taking seriously just not losing my head over I am pushing back the mailing date. Some people have had to move to safer ground (wise decision) plus there will be backlog from the post services having to shut down. Mail out week is being moved 1 week forward. The week of Nov 12 will be our new mail by week. Earlier is fine. :)
Kim stay safe that's most important. I'm glad you have somewhere to wait out the storm. :)
I'm going to go coax my kids to get to bed. I can hear the wind speeding up out there. :) I wonder if we'll get any thunder.
In any event I'm going to sleep great. I always do when it storms. :)

Hamburg, PA(Zone 6b)

Well storm is over and hopefully will be going home tomorrow...So many roads back to my house are closed. My son stayed behind and said this is the only damage in the yard. He took a pic with his phone.

It's over...yayyy!

Holly Springs, NC(Zone 7b)

Now for the big Reveal of my newest treasures! Susie (DeeJay9) sent me this beautiful personalized pot set, which has another wide saucer underneath for me to surround the base with succulents. As if the pot weren't perfect on its own, she included a rooted plumeria!!! Susie also tucked a few crochet booklets into a sweet project bag. Since I've joined the DG community, I'm getting back to my crafty ways so I'm looking forward to brushing up on my crochet work. I have truly enjoyed meeting new friends and look forward to seeing all of the other creations. My pot is still in the sticker-sticking stage, but will be ready by the deadline, promise!

Glad to see they are not broken! As soon as we get cold weather, I will cut back my angel trumpets, and send you some cuttings!

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

Susie, I just found this thread and I am so glad that the pot was received unbroken and that you liked the tea towels I made and the Amaryllis bulb. This has been a fun swap. I've been thinking of doing a few for myself with flamingoes on them. If I do I'll be sure to post so you can see them. I have rediscovered Mod Podge and really like it. I hope it will work as well on fabric as it does on tissue paper.
