My angel came through. She spoiled me and my gerbils rotten. I like everything that was sent. The simple wooden toys are great. The gerbils will love them. The clothespins are so cute! The gerbils will have fun chewing those up. the initials are the first letter of some of my gerbils names. The fabric cozy and tunnels are so cool. Gerbils will like those also. The treat bars will be put to good use.  My angel must have looked on my pininterest. I always wanted some of those fabric sanitary pads. The big paw printed play cowl is cool. The gerbils love to run around and play on me and this would be a cool toy for them to run in and out of. I already tried it on one of my boys. He likes to play his "bonk bonk" game. The homemade gerbil stamp is so cool too!!

Leigh told me that her young daughter helped with the wooden toys. Tell her the gerbils love them. Simple wooden toys are the best for gerbils next to tp rolls.

Details of swap:
This swap is all about our furry, feathered, or scaly friends. You can send pet related items or items for the pets themselves, or a combination of both. You can decorate food/water bowls, collars, make clothes, beds, toys, bags, etc. All pets are welcome. For collars, especially for cats, please buy and then decorate a collar. Use your best judgment when giving any pet a toy. Remember to always supervise pets when theyre playing with toys. Anything can become a choking hazard. Communication is key to this swap. Talk with your partner.  Please talk with your partner often. This is swap will be a little over a month. Plenty of time to craft.

This is usually a 5 point swap but I am going to leave it open and let the partners decide on how much they want to send each other. All pets swaps have been known to spoil. That is why I am leaving the size of the swap to you.

I reserve the right to refuse people based on shaky past feedback. We will start the swap once I get either 24 people or the due date.

26  One Tiny Thing 2012 London Olympics CLOSED - Send by 08/20 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by gerbilgal on: August 02, 2012 01:25:58 PM


Swap name:  One Tiny Thing 2012 London Olympics
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  gerbilgal
Sign-up date range:  signups August 2 to August 6 (11pm eastern time)
Date to send item by:  August 20, 2012

Limited to a certain number of people?  24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: N/A

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES/NO

Details of swap:

The idea is to make one tiny Olympics Themed craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items must be 5"x5" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship. Since it is the Olympics,  I am making this OTT 5 inches or smaller.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND DON'T REPLY WITH IT HERE.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Craftster Username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?:
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What craft skills can you use to make a good quality tiny item:

What craft skills would you like your tiny item to be made with:

What kind of tiny Olympic thing would you like to receive? (this is just a guideline):

What are your favorite colors / motifs / styles:

Do you have any allergies?

Do you smoke or have pets in your household?

What else would you like to tell your partner?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A few other things to follow:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT Olympics in the subject line of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it!

3.   A DC# is not required since the packages are very small.  In all cases, save your receipt and be prepared to
      show me a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion

4.   Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  It will be noted in your feedback if you don't follow
     the 'rule' and send extras

5.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you
      MUST inform me and your partner.

I got my present from TroubleT today!  She made me a wet bag for my soggy dishlocths. It has already been put to use. Plus she sent me a bunch of tp rolls for the gerbils. Gerbils love to chew up tp rolls. It is their favorite toy. The wet bag was in my pininterest.  Thank you!  Your Thank you card will be in the mail tomorrow.

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Maybe cats and dogs just aren't your type, maybe you just needed some itty bitty squishy love. Whatever the reason, do you spend your days slaving to the needs of carpet sharks? Do your rats have more toys than you ever did? Do you agonize over every detail in the hamster cage? Scoff at dog owners who dress up their poodles and pay hundreds of dollars for grooming when you've broken eight sewing machine needles making Betty, Boop and Blinkie a bunch of cushy hammocks that they're just going to chew through anyway? Do you check your bedsheets every night for ferret/rat/cavy pellets/raisins before you lay down? Did you stop that useless habit ages ago and just hop in bed without caring anyway? This is your swap.

This is a ferret/rodent/pocket pet themed swap. If you don't have one of these pets, or a pet at all, please feel free to join us! There are just as many things that can be made for rodent/s-appreciators that can be made for the pets themselves. In fact, this is a 7 point swap, and at least two points must be spent on making items for the owner. This swap has a history of spoiling your pets so please communicate on how much you want to make. Bunny/Hedgehogs/degu/chinchilla/guinea pig owners are more than welcome.

Because of the nature of this swap, communication is really stressed with your partner.  Some people are picky with what they give to their pets, especially when it comes to treats. I'm going to try and cover as possible, but at least send your partner an introduction PM so that you can get to know them better. Also, as there will be over a month of crafting time, please try to check in on the swap thread once a week even if just to say that you are still crafting.

Please label Personal Messages (PMs) to organizer with title of "Rodent Revolution".  When you send, label message as "SENT: Rodent Revolution".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.  When you receive, label message as "RECEIVED: Rodent Revolution".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.

As in all Craftster Swaps, DC#s are REQUIRED.

Posting pictures is required in this swap.  If you believe you will have trouble posting pictures for any reason, please mention this in the questionnaire below.  Please also take pictures of the items that you send, in case your partner has any unforeseen problems posting.

Point System:
1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS
1 SMALL= 1 POINT

Just a reminder of what a large, medium and small are:

By Time
Large - 3 or more hours
Medium - 2 or more hours
Small - 2 or less hours

By Size
Large - A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
Medium - one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
Small - Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price

Medium - $10-$30 dollars
Small - $10 or less
