So, I decided to sign up for an RPG-based craft swap. It seemed ideal for me, and I had some really neat ideas for what I might do. After being paired up with someone who’s a fan of Vampire: The Masquerade I began the process by ordering all of the supplies I couldn’t get locally and making a trek to the local fabric store for the stuff I could get here. I had a very generous timeline and felt I could make it all happen.
Then the problems started. The supplies I ordered online didn’t arrive (and still haven’t arrived). Our second-hand sewing machine died in a way that wasn’t repairable. Our glow in the dark paint didn’t dry the way it should. Our printer will only print magenta.
It’s not a disaster yet. I’ve gotten a lot of the smaller stuff done, but my largest item is wrapped up in all of the supplies that have yet to come. If I don’t see anything by Wednesday I need to talk to my partner and the organizer and start work on plan B. Plan B will involve a lot of swearing.
