1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Hair Bows for Little and Young Girls on: October 04, 2010 07:45:54 PM
Anyone interested in swapping hair bows for their littles?

I find if I buy the stuff to make the hair bow I want - I only need 2... but have enough materials for at least 4!

This would be a small swap. USA only. 16 years and older...

What do ya think?

Details of swap: Share My Best Medium with 3 People Swap

The idea is that you make 3 Mediums and send to 3 different Craftsters chosen by your organizer - me. Not only do you get to make something that you enjoy, are good at but you also get to share with others and get to meet new Craftster Friends! Craft 3 of the same things you enjoy and receive 3 different great mediums in return!

If I say I want to ship internationally, do I have to ship to 3 international countries? No, but there are no guarantees. You may get a mix of 3 different countries, or a different combination of USA & international. However, Please expect to ship 3 international packages if you agree.

Can my 3 Mediums be different? The idea of this swap is to make 3 of the same. My best item is a bag. So I will use the same pattern, BUT the fabrics will be different and to my partners likes and wants. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask on the thread or PM me.

Definition of a Medium: A Medium is valued at 2 points. This equals to 2 or more hours, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf, bag, or worth $10-$30 dollars. Please think Quality... better to over craft than under craft.

Can you make 2 smalls or 1 point items? Yes. When making smalls PLEASE BE SURE  it is worth the effort. Please over craft instead of under craft.

Can I use what I already have in my stash?
Sure... But be sure it meets the likes of your partners. Please don't use this swap as a stash clean out. That being said, if what is in your stash is something that your partners would like - by all means. I would also like to add that this isn't a swap to send your seconds.... Please do not send projects that you are not 98% proud of.  If you had something in your stash because it wasn't your best and you didn't send it in another swap, please do not dump this on your partners. Thanks!

Can you hand pick your partners? No, but you can let me know who you would like to swap with and I will do my best to match you up with your choices.

Will my profile be passed/shared with 3 craftsters? YES. If you have issues with your address and profile being shared with more than one person at a time, this swap is not for you.

What if I get flaked on?
If you get flaked on, I will be quick to find you an angel. If you would like to be an angel, please let me know when filling out the questionnaire.

Do I have to Post Every Week like your previous swaps? Nope. I'm taking a stab at trusting Craftsters. So this is what I ask. You communicate with your partner to seek out how you can make your best Medium, something they enjoy. Please stay in contact with me - Please send DC# or picture copy of receipt if you are outside of the US to me and your partner when shipped. In addition, PLEASE send me a PM when you receive. If you want to be chatty on the thread PLEASE do so, a chatty thread is a happy thread. If I don't see you on a thread and send you a PM to check on you, don't take it personally, please respond promptly (72 hours from sent date) and let me know you are still around.


Can this Medium be for my kids or pets?
Yes, but realize that your swap partner may or may not be willing to make 3 kid or pet items. However, you can fill out the application including your child(s)/pet preferences and hope for the best.
 
Can I spoil my partner? OF COURSE! just don't expect it in return. The swap is all about 3 Mediums in a month's time. That is somewhat of a high demand swap. If you have more to give, feel free!

I will be a stickler to shipping on time. If there is no or little communication, Negative Feedback will be given 7/14/09 and swap angel will be found.

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "My Name Is Earl" Swap? on: May 10, 2009 10:35:09 AM
Anyone interested in a My Name Is Earl Swap?

"Rat-tat-two-ee!"

"Bad Boys Bad Boys, who you gonna call?"

"Hey Earl" "Hey Crab Man"

"Ouch. I scared my pecker!"

Randy: (reading from the list) Number 23. Peed in the back of a cop car.
Earl: I'm no longer proud of that.

Randy: I think you're trying to sell a cat to a guy who fancies dogs.

Earl: Quittin' smokin' is kinda like going to prison. If you can get through the first three days, you got a fighting chance. First we tried the tapes, then we tried the patches. Someone told us to try carrot sticks as a subsitute, but we couldn't get the damn things to light.

Shelly: I can't believe you were married to Joy Darvel. I haven't thought how much I am better than her in years.

Bus Ticket Agent: (Earl, looking for Randy, shows the guy his picture) Oooh, while we're showing pictures, here's my, my daughter. That's here fiancee Paul. He's Canadian. But not the French kind, so we're fine with it.

Earl: I've been stabbed by plenty of girls. It only really hurts when you twist it, pull it out and stick it back in.

Randy: For the reception, how should I have my chicken, grilled or McNuggetted?

Joy: ...Besides, you think Bruce and Demi don't sleep together once in awhile and don't tell Ashton?...Please.

Joy: Woo, this things making me sweat like a whore in church, no offense, Patty.
Patty: None taken. I don't go to church.

So yeah - Really I could go on... Do we have any My Name is Earl Fans wanting to do a swap around the show?
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Where are all the swaps? on: May 09, 2009 09:12:51 PM
For Realz.... I thought I would look to see what the new swaps were that I could jump into and swap shocked at how few there were. Is it the season? Are Organizers burnt out (I am)? or am I missing something?

I was about to organize a swap but realized I personally have to wait since I'm going to be doing some traveling this month.

What's going on?
