ORGANIZED SWAPS / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 (signups closed, send by 11/3) by GatorWrangler
Date started: September 17, 2014 09:31:16 PM, Replies: 368
In a nut shell the sweat shoppe ornament swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 4 or 8 like ornaments, and in return you will receive 4 or 8 different ornaments. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice.

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 5 (Ornament)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: Sept 18 to Oct 6
PM Organizer top picks by: Oct 8, 6pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: Oct 30
Date to send item by: Nov 3



Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):25

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?NO

All ages allowed? must be over 18

This next part is for me and the Mods...
Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~ Each participant will make 4 or 8 like items. For instance, 4 or 8 of 1 kind of ornament, or 4 sets of 1 kind of ornament AND 4 types of another ornament.
~ Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe ornament discussion thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394576.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~ Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~ We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all 4 items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 4 items) or twice (for 8 items)


Please make a sample of what you are offering and post the picture on this thread before signups end so people can make their top picks list. And if you do not feel someone's offering meets swap requirements, please pm me before signups close.

We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Everyone must post in the swap thread at least once, there will not be check ins, but we do expect to hear from you!  It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large or work with a 3-way swap.
                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

In this round of the TM Patch Swap, you will be crafting for 1 or 2 partners (first time swappers will be limited to 1 partner) and from 1-3 patches (you and your partner should agree on the exact number).

Also, you will have the option of exchanging a TM Patch Supply kit with your partner (contents of kit may include: floss, fabric, embellishments {buttons, beads, ribbons, charms, etc}, poly-fil, etc.).

Let's keep this swap simple and limit it to the sending of patches and kits (if you love sending extra things, consider adding those in to a kit Smiley ).

There are lots of inspirational patches from previous swaps, so check out some of the galleries here:

ORGANIZED SWAPS / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Cryptid Swap - SU CLOSED, SO 11/18 by Smeddley
Date started: October 09, 2014 05:17:46 PM, Replies: 207


(Wolpertinger head by burstofpanties)

Suggested by the clever Ludi, being organized by the not-so-clever me, I present: The Cryptid Swap!  

OVERVIEW

Swap name: Cryptid Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Smeddley
Sign-up date range: 10/09/14-10/24/14
Date to send item by: 11/18/14
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No
Additional Age requirement? No

THE WRITE-UP

Who doesn't like mythical beasts?  Whether your tastes run to the noble unicorn, the cute pegasus, or the terrifying Kraken, there's a cryptid for you!  

This will be a THREE POINT swap, and it has to have a Medium or Large item (so, basically, a Large or a Medium and a Small).  To give you an idea of what sizes are:

By Time/Price/Physical size
-Large = 3 or more hours/$30 or more/A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = 2 or more hours/$10-$30 dollars/one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = 2 or less hours/$10 or less/Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

The thread is a major means of communication for the organizer and the swap participants."  This is not a rule I created, it is a Craftster rule, and one that is enforced.  Thank you in advance for following this important swap guideline. Kiss

I reserve the right to refuse anyone.  If you have feedback that shows a history of very late sending, ill-communication, incomplete packages, lack of DC#'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.



It's that time of year again, time to go back to school.  And if you received your letter, then it is time to pack you trunk and prepare to go back to Hogwarts.  So much to do, we better get started!

In this Round of Back to Hogwarts, we will craft 1 Large, 1 Medium, and 1 Small.  If you are unclear on what constitutes various sizes, please check this post on the Swap FAQ's.

And to stretch your crafty muscles and to keep with our theme, you can choose to craft any three of the following six options...

~* an item based on your partner's House preference
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Shop
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Class
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Spell, Curse, or Potion
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Character or Magical Creature
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Quote or Magical Object[/b][/size]


PACKAGE EXAMPLES:
Your partner's House is Ravenclaw, fave shop is Ollivanders, fave class is Potions, fave Spell is Expecto Patronum, fave Character is Luna, and fave Quote is "It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to live".

You could make....
a LARGE Stenciled Ravenclaw Hoodie, a MEDIUM Wooden Wand, and a SMALL Pair of Luna's Raddish Earrings.  
OR
a LARGE embroidered Expecto Patronum Hoopla, a MEDIUM Cauldron Candle, and a SMALL bookmark with Dumbledore's quote.


You can self-partner aka IYP for this swap, if both people wish to be swap partners.  If you do this, please PM your partnering to the organizer before the close of signups.

ORGANIZED SWAPS / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Snarky Housewives Swap CLOSED; SendOut 9/15 by rackycoo

GALLERY!


"Vanessa", by cackle

Those 50's housewives: so perfectly dressed, so decked in pearls, such lovely smiles. What are they hiding? The rackle knows: snarky attitudes! You know those beautiful smiles are just teeth clinched in pent up frustration. Can you relate? If so, let's share the snarky joy! In this swap, we will be exchanging one medium item, with no extras. Easy, peasy, snarky, and fun!

cackle and I cajoled Leslie, of Alpha Stamps, into creating collage sheets and providing awesome scrapbook papers and tiny adorable kitchen accessories just so we could host this snarky swap! She even made a collage sheet full of ideal snarky sayings, like the one cackle used in the art above. (Hint: search under "retro kitchen" for lots of goodies.) You don't have to use these supplies to participate in the swap, but you know you want to. Cheesy

Here are links to more of the projects we made in snarky anticipation:
