Oh, very nice birds! I finally managed to send my late claim  Embarrassed Now I just need to sneak on long enough to actually PM about it too. (naughty posting from work)

Great start to the gallery! I like the idea to make tin magnets, and the skelanimals are so cute. That pie looks really good too!

Bah... I should know better than to stack crafty deadlines. A non-craftster deadline messed up my (bad) planning. I'm mostly caught up with the swap I'm late in and I started swatching for the complicated one of my magnets. Gauge is not super important, but looks are.

Tomorrow I'll finally have a chance to try again with my stinky craft fail. Hopefully with more success! Two days off should be enough to get back on track, as long as everything dries and cures in time to send.

Yesterday I braved one of the touristy shops in Old Town and found my second storebought magnet. The clerk greeted me in english... I guess they don't get many visits from the "natives". I just rolled with it and spoke english while in the store  Grin

Now I just need to find that supply I bought before the swap started... I'm too messy for my own good. It's somewhere in my craft room... I think.

Finally some crafting time! I don't like sending late, but that's what happens when I manage to stack crafty deadlines :/ Poor planning on my part.

Nice painting! Only four colors needed, I like that.

I might sit out this month, or maybe join later in the month. Time to catch up on my claim here and on the other swap I'm in.

Yeah... Where did august go?

I recieved some lovely magnets from anna.wahnsinn last week and took photos the other day. I had to clean the fridge first :cough:

Look! So sparkly Cheesy They're tricky to take photos of, but trust me - they are perfect.

A bit more glare, but some of the designs are more visible here.

As if that wasn't enough the magnets came in a vintage looking tin AND anna included two packages of honeybush infusion. I can't get it locally, so getting two packets was a very nice surprise! Thank yooou! I've had honeybush tea almost every night since I got the package.

It can be swapping of supplies, but most often there is an element of crafting for your partner too.

In the themed swap the goal is usually to make an agreed upon amount of crafting for one (sometimes more) partner(s), on that particulartheme. Examples: tea and coffe swap, Dr Who swaps, one tiny harry potter thing swap.

Sometimes there are swaps that's all supplies. Example: Fill a box or an envelope of an agreed size with supplies you think your partner will like.

I think you might like a givers and needers swap. In that swap a giver (that would be you) is paired up with someone that needs supplies for various reasons and you send things you think that person would like. In return you usually get a small thank you note or small crafted item.

Another version is wishlist or pinterest swaps. Those that are not chain style might also be a good fit for you. For example the pinterest swap. The ones participating post a link to their pinterest board and some general info like allergies and if they would like supplies. When you are approved to join you post your own link, and then start looking through to see who you can claim. In theory you can send out more than you get (good for destashing, but not working for me at the moment since I've been claimed as much as I've claimed...)

Another fun swap where you give more than you get is the birthday swap. If it's not your birthday months you can still join and send presents from the birthday babies wishlists.

I hope I didn't confuse you further! There are lots of different swap types!

I didn't get a thing done this weekend, but I'll be able to replace a supply I ran out of when I go downtown tomorrow. Might be able to pick up a second storebought magnet too.
