This, my dears, is the Pick-n-Choose Theme Swap!

Whatcha do is pick 5 themes.

Then you create a list of at least 10 items you'd like crafted for your themes. Once you get partnered up, your partner will receive your list of themes and crafted items. They will then get to choose which kind of crafts (from your list) theyd like to craft to go along with each of your themes. Make sense? Heres an example:

Suzys themes would be:
1. Robots
2. Pin-up Girls
3. Owls
4. Ninjas

Suzys Crafted Items would be:
1.earrings
2.coin purse

6.scarf
7.stenciled tee
8.knitted socks
9.plushie
10. charm bracelet

Suzyz partner, Jane, then gets to pick and choose what kinda crafts from Suzys Crafted Items list, should like to craft to correspond with each theme. Jane picks:

1.Robots some robot earrings
2.Pin up girls shrinky dink charm bracelet
3.Owls an original painting featuring owls
4.Ninjas a ninja inspired stenciled tee
5.Hello Kitty a coin purse made of Hello Kitty Fabric

You may have more than 10 items listed in your Crafted Items list. In fact, the more you have, the easier it may be for your partner to choose/decided what to make for each theme. Please try to have your crafted items be a mix of different mediums (paper, clay, crochet,etc) and a mix of different sizes (small,medium,large) if possible.

17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft for my husband/wife/bf/gf/insert partner of choice here! on: May 31, 2008 01:36:14 PM
(i know there's an idea semi like this down below, but i have a bit of a different idea)

Okay so, I have been swapping like mad lately! I love it, it's really fun and quite addicting. My husband likes seeing the things I craft for my partner, and he just LOVES it when I recieve my packages in the mail! He gets all excited and wants me to hurry and open it and see what I got. He was even going to call me when I was away one day to tell me I recieved a package and ask me if he could open it, lol! So I was thinking, it would be awesome if he could recieve a package in the mail full of crafty stuff just for him. I'm sure he would love that. Does anybody else have someone in there life that's like this/would love to recieve something too?

I'm thinking it could work a little something like this: we make a list of crafted items ,maybe at least 10-15, that our h/w/gf/bf/what have you, would like to recieve (i'm a big list person and really like the idea of having crafted items lists to choose from, haha!) and your partner will have to craft a certain number of items, or at least 1 big, 1 meduim, 1 small, or better yet we could go by the point system.

So yeah, I dunno, what do you guys think? Would anyone be down to do this? When's a good time to start sign-ups? How many items should be crafted? Any other ideas on how exactly it could run (you know, besides a crafted list)? Anything else?
