4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Favorite Recipes Mini Swap! on: July 14, 2008 02:24:43 PM
Favorite Recipes Mini Swap

The idea of this swap is that all participants share three of your most favorite recipes.  Breakfast, dinner, dessert, beverage, holiday, everyday, omnivore or vegan!  As soon as you have received your approval PM go to the gallery and reserve your "mini-gallery".  There you will post your recipes.  

Once partners are assigned we will be crafting One Small recipe/kitchen related item.  There will be a two week crafting period.  That should be more than enough time for one small crafted item.  Once you receive you will post pics in your mini-gallery.  No extras allowed.  Crafted items should be able to fit in a padded envelope to keep postage relatively inexpensive.  Just a simple, quick and most importantly FUN swap!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Recycled Necktie Swap on: June 12, 2008 02:03:30 PM
Recycled Necktie Swap


Would anyone be interested in a recycled necktie swap?
This swap would give you an excuse to raid hubby's/dad's/grandpa's closets for unwanted ties to craft with!:D 
If you don't have a readily available stash of ties to work with, thrift stores usually have a treasure trove of cheap neckties.  I've even seen them sold in bulk on ebay.  Anyway...

I was thinking interested swappers could craft:

1 MEDIUM and 2 SMALLS

Original Topic:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249525.0

July usually kicks off the Christmas crafting season.  So...let's get a head start on our Handmade Holidays with a Christmas in July Stash Busting Swap!  It's always nice to get help filling our gift crafting lists.   As crafters, most of us enjoy giving handmade gifts.  We also usually have a few more craft supplies around the house than we'd like to admit. Wink
   
Items should be crafted from supplies that you currently have in your possession.  The only exception being basic consumables like glue, thread etc...  If you are a spoiler, please spoil with handmade extras.  No store-bought extras, please, as this is a stash busting swap.  You can craft items to help your partner stuff stockings, fill their gift list or, get a head start making their holiday decor etc...

If you do not celebrate Christmas, not to worry, all comers are welcome!  The main spirit of this swap is to do some good ol' fashioned Stash Busting! Smiley  I'll do my best to partner swappers according to their interests.

Swappers will be crafting items worth a total of 6 POINTS

1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS
1 SMALL= 1POINT

Partners may swap more if they are both in agreement and able to send on or before the deadline of July 31


Please read the Swap Info Guide for info on the swap process and Swap Etiquette for a helpful guide on project size requirements.  If you have any questions about the swap please do not hesitate to PM serendipity_sarah.

Please make contact with your swap partner as soon as possible after partners have been assigned. 
You will be expected to pm your partner and check-in with a reply on this thread at least once per week until you have sent.
I can't emphasize enough how important communication is to the swap process.
