I'm working on a couple of projects for a swap and I was getting frustrated with both of them!!  Tongue So I needed a quick little distraction and with the season finale of Walking Dead on it gave me an idea, or an urge, lol, to make one of them.  I started with Michonne, now I just need to figure out how to make a sword for her.  I am so happy with how she came out!!!




Thanks for looking!!!

Thanks for looking!!!
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Queen Elsa on: March 24, 2014 08:25:44 PM
I've been obsessed with making Queen Elsa lately.  This is my third one, each one is completely different.  I made the first one for GatorWrangler in the SweatShopSwap, the second one I bought a pattern and made for Daysie (actually, I made 2 from this pattern!) and this one is the third one.  I don't know if I really have a fave, I like them all, but I suck and this is the only one I have a pic of, d'oh!!!  This one I made from my Human Amigurumi pattern that I posted on here a while back, finding the link.......here it is!   OK, on to the pics...




Thanks for checking her out!! OH!!!  And if you really like her I am giving her away!  Details on my fb page https://www.facebook.com/mama24boyzCrochet
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Lalaloopsy on: March 23, 2014 05:45:24 PM
Well, I guess I was invited to this birthday party last month but I completely forgot about it. So my sil invited Daysie and Ethan again on Thursday to her friends daughters 2nd bday. Oh no! What should I get her? My sil says nothing cuz she got her lots, but I just couldn't go empty handed, so I made her her own little lalaloopsy dolly that looks like her with the blond piggy tails and blue eyes.  


A little closer

And the back of her hair that I love


Sorry for the crappy iPad photos, she wasn't done til last minute and all I could find was the iPad.
Thanks for looking!!

Welcome to the Ongoing Gift Swap Round 16!!!

As you guys requested here is the ongoing holiday list swap. However, since we're now going to try to make it a year long gift-giving swap I've decided to rename it the Ongoing Gift Swap.  This swap is perfect for all of your gift giving needs! Whether you need gifts on hand for Christmas, Valentines, Easter or thanksgiving, they could be for birthdays or make me smile days. It's the perfect swap for family members, friends, teachers and co workers. Say you know a friend would love a knit or crochet scarf but you can't do that? Well, this swap is for you!! Come join us!

How it works:

This swap will work in an ongoing format.  The first person in the swap will post a list of handmade items that they would like.  The participants then look through the list and if they can fulfill that particular wish, they claim that person for that item and post their own list for the next person to claim them.  This works like a chain.  Person A is claimed by Person B, Person B is claimed by Person C, etc.  You must claim to be claimed and only one person can claim another at a time. 

Each FOC can have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time.  A non-FOC craftster gets 2 claims at a time.  A new swapper can have 1 claim at a time.  Once one of your claim is sent and the organizer is notified with a dc# you may claim again. 

What is on the list:

Each participant can post as many size medium requests as they would like in their list.  Please try to post a minimum of 10 items you would like so there is a variety and a better chance of not stalling the swap.  You may post larges or smalls as well, but please realize that to fulfill the swap requirements, you are only required to claim and send a medium.  This swap will be for handmade items only.  Organizing your list by crafting medium is a good idea to help other participants find something on your list that they are good at, but is not required.  Please note that because these are holiday wishes we are filling, items should be your absolute best quality. 

How to make your list:

Please format your list to have an introduction that lets us know a little more about you, such as your name, your general location, etc.  Please format your wishes so that each participant has a clear idea as to what you are looking for.  Posting links is highly advisable.  It is also a great idea to provide participants with as much relevant information on the gift recipient as possible.  Here is my suggested way for formatting each wish:

<item> <recipient> <preferences> <link>
<allergies>

Example: 
Doll dress for my daughter.  She prefers pink floral fabric with a velcro or button closure.  Here is one she likes http://URL GOES HERE
Allergies:  Smoke

Including allergies right underneath of each wish keeps the allergies in focus.  This is such an important part to consider when claiming someone.  If you format your wishes like this, they will be clear and you are more likely to be claimed quickly.

Making a claim:

Once you make a claim, you must PM the participant that you are claiming for their address and to discuss the item you have claimed to make for them.  Once you make a claim, you are committed to making that item.  Remember, you only have two weeks to complete the item and ship it.  If you choose to send extras, they do not contribute to the size of the claim.  A medium is technically either between 2-3 hours in time, or $20-$30 in supplies/value.  To claim the person who is currently available, respond to their post with I claim <username> for <item claimed for>.  For example, if I were to claim myself to make socks, I would write, I claim mama24boyz for a hoopla.  Within that same response, you then post your own list so someone can claim you. 

   
Send Outs:

Just like other ongoing swaps, you will have two weeks from the date of your claim to send out your item.  There are no exceptions.  DC#s will be absolutely required.  If you do not provide a DC#, it will be noted in your feedback.  If you do not provide a DC# and your package gets lost, you will be required to resend.  You must PM the organizers with the DC#/customs# when you send!

Qualifications to Join:

Anyone is free to join under standard Craftster Swap Guidelines.  Due to the time constraints on claims, I reserve the right to deny any Craftster that has a history of lateness.

Receiving packages:

Please PM me as soon as you receive each package.  This is so I can keep track of claims.  Pictures in the gallery are also appreciated.  Some of your fulfilled wishes might inspire other wishes for other participants.

Other important info:

You do not have to message me when you claim a person.  You only have to message them for their address.  Please PM me however when you send your questionnaire, when you send your claim, and when you receive a claim with the title: OGS 14: questionnaire, OGS 14: sent!, etc.  Also, Please PM me with any questions you have.

Please do not claim a person until you have been approved for this swap and it is listed in your profile!  Please do not claim a person once one of your claims has been received until the person receiving from you verifies your package arrived and is exactly what you claimed them for. (Unless you have open claim spots, of course!)

Sometimes, a person's list will stall the swap.  When your list has been up for more than 18-24 hours without someone claiming you, please try to add more items to your list so you have a better chance of being claimed.  Remember that it is possible that not all of your items will be claimed. 

There will be a discussion/gallery thread in the Gallery area.  This is an area to give us updates and discuss this swap. 

At the end of the month, whoever is the last on the list will be first on the list for the following month/or the organizer (me!) will be the ending claimer.  You will have to sign up for each additional round that you choose to participate in.  You must be current in the previous round to be accepted to the new round.

This swap is open to international swappers, as well as new swappers.

I reserve the right to deny participation to anyone who is late in previous rounds of this swap.  This is a holiday swap and should be fun!


If you want to participate, here is the information to send to the organizer.  Please have the title of your PM be the name of the swap.
