3  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Need Swap Replacement for 13 Days of Halloween Swap FOUND on: July 24, 2009 01:19:58 PM
It has come to our attention that one of our swappers has been banned from swapping, so we need a replacement swapper. You will not receive FOC status for this as you will be both sending and receiving a package for this.
If you missed signups, now is your chance to still get in on all the action! All the rules for the swap still apply- see here for details
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=309945.msg3557495#msg3557495
PLUS, you need to be in the US, as she cannot send out of country at this time.
Please understand that you are committing to sending 91 items with numbered breakdowns as far as sizes go.
PLEASE READ ALL GUIDELINES!
Fill out the questionnaire and PM it to me if you are interested.

Details of swap:
ORIGINAL THREAD DISCUSSION FOR THIS SWAP: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304411.0

Round 1 Discussion http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250567.0

Round 1 Gallery http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250570.0

I reserve the right to deny any craftster's entrance into this swap for the following reasons...
ANY "negative" feedback comments
poor communication in past swaps
sending late in past swaps
Being a NEWBIE swapper (you must have successfully completed 1 swap prior to signing up for this one)

The idea of this swap is to craft for your partner 13 groups of items (91 items in total-it is highly encouraged that day 13 be candy or some type of baked good- Halloween related of course) based on their interests, going along with the idea of the 12 days of Xmas swap (thread for that swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195682.0) You will label the packages with the numbers 13-1, so that your partner knows which days are in which packages. We will start opening the packages on October 19th with the #13 package. Inside would be 13 things. On October 20th you would open the #12 package and inside there should be 12 things. This will go on and on until on October 31st when you will open the #1 package.

Each day can have a "theme" if you want, but this is not mandatory. You could have day 5 be 5 glitter skulls, while day 6 could be a pair of earrings + a set of gift tags + a fabric headband + a tea towel + embossing powder and some handmade paper

This is a pretty big swap commitment so if you are not sure that you can fulfill the obligations please do not sign up. This swap will end up taking a lot of time/money/resources, so please plan accordingly. Some participants from the 12 days of Xmas swap said they spent a large amount of $$ in shipping alone! Also, it is VERY IMPORTANT that the packages get sent ON TIME so please make sure that you can get to the post office.

Please note:  if you are sending food/accepting food, your package will look like this approximately:
handcrafted 60% = 55 items
store bought 25%= 23 items
food/candy/baked goods: 15% = 13 items (for day 13 most likely)
and, if not,  like this: 70% (64 items) handcrafted and 30% (27 items) store bought
If you buy an item from etsy.com, a craft fair, or any other handmade site that is handmade I consider it handmade and may go into the 75% handmade list. Store bought to me implies COMMERCIALLY manufactured, mass produced and/or supplies.

Someone mentioned specifying the sizes and numbers more- so here goes- (I basically just took this from the 12 Days of Christmas swap, it seems to cover everything- so let me know if I need to be more specific or whatnot.)

Here are some more rules- that specify just how much of a COMMITMENT this swap is!

Recommendations from your swap organizer:

1. I would recommend that your day 13 be candy or treats, days 12-7 be "small" items, days 6-4 be "medium" items and days 3-1 be "large" items. Less time intensive things should be made for the larger numbered days and more time intensive projects for the smaller numbered days.

Which breaks down into-
13 candy treats (if you are accepting treats- if not it will be 70 small items)
57 small items
15 medium items
and
6 large items


Craftster's guidelines for swaps are as follows:

By Time
-Big = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Big = 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
-Big = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

The RULES:

1. You must send ALL PM's to DragonFly4  and all PM's  must have the subject line: 13 Days of Halloween Swap with the words something along the lines of general question/sent/received...etc

2. You must post in the original thread at least once a week! This starts once partners are assigned. You must continue to post at least 1 time a week until October 31st.

3.PM's must be sent to DragonFly4 AND your partner when you send and receive.  If you are sending within the USA you must get a DC# and send it to DragonFly4 and your partner. They cost about an extra dollar in addition to the postage price. If you are sending outside of your country, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping and send a picture of it to DragonFly4!!! This is mandatory!

5.When you open each days package, you will then need to post in your mini gallery. I ask that you post pictures within a reasonable amount of time. Please get them posted within 3 days of opening. All of your pictures will be posted in your mini gallery. Posting pictures is a requirement for this swap! Not posting pictures will be noted in your feedback and that can affect your ability to join this swap or other swaps in the future. It will be noted in your feedback  unless your mini gallery is filled with pictures of your 13 packages. Everyone will want to drool and covet what you get, so please share! If you don't have a digital camera and cannot get access to one, please ask your partner to take pictures before they send. (Partners may want to take pictures before they send just in case!)

6. There will be a halfway check in point and a one week to go check in point as well. I will send each of you a PM and you must reply back.

DUE TO LENGTH, QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER IS POSTED IN BELOW in the 2nd REPLY!!

Details of swap:

Do you live in a house or apartment that could use some crafted goodness to enliven the atmosphere?
Do you have specific color schemes, themes, patterns, etc. that you feel you cant ask a swap partner for because it is too structured or you feel you are being too picky or demanding ?
Well this is the swap for you.

Participants will be making decorative items for their partners home.  Items will be based off of specific guidelines (theme, colors, pattern, texture, fabric line, etc.) that your partner specifies.  Items can include (but are not limited to): artwork, wall hangings, pillows/cushions, tableware, towels, embroidery, candles, frames, wind chimes, mobiles, organizers, bulletin boards, throws, rugs, photography, magnets, coasters, jewelry organizers, soap and anything else decorative you can come up with!  

For this swap we will do
1 large
1 Medium
and
2 smalls
 however I strongly recommend partners discuss between themselves maybe you would like 5 large......it is up to you whatever you are comfortable with.
*Partners please let me know if you are changing the guidelines so I can make note.

You are required to PM a valid tracking or Delivery Confirmation # to your partner and organizers when you send, (or get a customs form number or receipt copy if you are sending out of country.)

You are required to post photos of the items you received in the swap gallery.  Everybody loves seeing photos of all the goodies and your partner deserves recognition for the time and effort they spent crafting for you.  

You are required to post in the swap thread at least once a week.   It would be fun for everyone to post a picture of the room their partner is crafting for.   If you dont post one in the thread please send your partner a picture of the room!  It will make it much easier on your partner and will help ensure that you receive something that is crafted to match your rooms existing dcor.

If you have any questions/concerns at all about the swap please don't hesitate to contact your organizer.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / monster hoodies on: April 13, 2009 04:25:00 PM
I did not sew the actual hoodies- I ordered them from gymboree- but I did embellish them with monster stuff. These are my boys favorite!









modeled by my 4 year old DD, but they are size 7 for my boys and fit them better.
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / some felt food on: April 13, 2009 04:14:25 PM

pasta with easy-i dont know how to needle felt-meatballs


pizza that was all the same size before I sewed it.


breakfast
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Another apron- this time for my Mom on: April 13, 2009 03:45:19 PM


hem-ruffle-fabric

pocket

back

love the way this crosses and ties in the back

reversible headband to match- unfortunately I was having problems sewing on the velcro- which is why those stitches look wierd, but I have since fixed it.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Apron for my sister on: April 13, 2009 03:40:52 PM
Finally learned how to upload photos here- so now I get to play catch up and get my projects on here.



front- as soon as I saw the damask pattern I knew that it would be perfect for my sister!



close up of top- she is a lot more well endowed than me (surgically) so this fits her great!



close up of fabric and ruffle



back- ties at waist and halter tie



reversible headband I made to go with it




Here is another one I made from the same pattern- for my best friend- she picked out the fabric.



for some reason this picture turned out really bad. I think I forgot to switch the lighting mode on my camera- she is WAY cuter than this in person, and the apron doesn't look so wonky. yes, that is one of my littles you see in the back- monkeying on my couch.



close up of fabric. It is from Modas woodland bloom line, and I just loved this line. She doesnt like pink as much as I do so she opted for the brown as an accent.
