1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craftster Flyers for your Community on: April 29, 2007 06:56:42 AM
Before falling asleep last night, I thought about how I found craftster and how neat it would be if we had download-able Craftster flyers to promote the site around our own communities. I'd like to post them at the libraries, school campuses (campii?), and public posting boards like at craft stores and laundromats.
This may have already been suggested, but I couldn't find anything in my searches.
Would anyone else be interested in this?

Meow Wont Purr stepping in for ILiveForJesus

16candles was flaked on in this swap which should have ended in August. It looks like the swap fizzled out as soon as it started, and 16candles lost out.
NO information about this swap detailed the number or size of items. Any Degrassi related items will go!
I'd like to ask for 1-2 people to volunteer. If you think you can make a few smaller items, I can break up the duties for 2 people. If you'd like to take the whole thing on, hat's off to you!
If you'd like to be 16candle's angel, please contact me and indicate if you'd like all or 1/2 the duties.
Thank you so much guys!!!

To give you ideas
16Candles likes:
The Next Generation or Old Degrassi? Next
Who is your favorite character? Ellie, followed closely by Marco
16Candles sent: a screened tote, personalized cards, and a degrassi themed word poetry kit
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make-your-own Sticker Swap? on: October 07, 2005 09:09:59 AM
I think there have been sticker swaps before over in the paper arts section, but instead of swapping stickers you already have and don't use, how about a make-your-own stickers swap?
Anyone with a Xyron machine knows how addicting it is (I just got mine last night and I'm already too far gone. My first two stickers were a plate of mexican food and a bowl of salsa. Fitting!)
Of course, you dont need a sticker-maker to make stickers. I know they make computer paper that is stickery that you could either print out stuff onto or just draw on. And I can just imagine the different sticker-making things at craft stores. They could be hand drawn, or internet images, or magazine cut-outs, the sky's the limit!
 It would be incredibly fast since its just... you know... stickers. I was thinking like a week and a half for sending. I would want to limit it to 10 stickers per envelope, and then you can send out as many envelopes as you want (and get as many back in return!).
Would anyone be up for this?

Thank you to everyone who volunteered!!!


Basically, you pick one or everything or nothing from the list. The swap was just that everybody would recieve three birthday presents and send out three, but the swap fell apart and I need a bunch of angels now. The wishlist is mostly just a list to give you ideas about what your person would like--it isn't strict at all.


kat_penguino (0 Angels Needed)
Your Birthdate: August 30
5 birthday wishes:
1. I would really like something cute and knitted/crocheted, like a capelet, but I know that's lots of work so I would understand if I didn't get something like that.
2. Something to hold my knitting needles in.
3. Whatever, I'm not picky, it's just fun to get presents
4.  a bag with something cute appliques on it

I do not know if one has been started yet. If not, here we go!

I received this lovely envelope from Bunnygirl82 today! It's awesome!

(Sorry for the white bar. I noticed too late I left my whole name visible, which is a great idea, right?)
The envelope and note are so fun with lots of stickers. And I got two bookmarks!! A very pretty book thong and one sewn, patchworky bookmark! Yeayy!! Thanks Bunnygirl, I'm going to PM you in a sec!
I have to say just from this one envelope, I'm having serious swap adequacy problems. I may have to send another set out...

I was just going through a box of my crafts and found that I have many more Mark Ryden crafts than I thought.
Does anyone else love his art enough for a swap?
Either inspired or themed?

Show off the goods here!


Okay, here's a list I will update as news comes to me. This will be based primarily by the PMs I recieve, NOT posts. So please, even if you've posted that you've sent/recieved, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PM me just to remind me. I know already that posts will be overlooked and it will become difficult to keep track of. Once for when you send, and once for when you've recieved your item.

Rosered <--> Aspiring
Gink <--> StarSix
Teamwang <--> Nickerly_kitten

Purple = I've been contacted, Blue = item sent, and Teal = partner recieved item. If I forgot to update you, just let me know.
I'm included those that have contacted me about any concerns, just to let me know they're alive. If I have not heard from you come the 12th, for either sending, recieving, or just checking in, I'm going to have to go on flake alert and start sending pesky PMs. Lets not get to that point!
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Puppy Bandanas/Clothes swap? on: July 10, 2005 11:49:45 AM
I know this idea was raised, but I dont remember that it ever came through.
I'd really love one, though!
I know some folks love to dress up their pups with clothes, tags, collars, leads, bandanas, etc. How many of us would be interested? I personally love just little bandana triangles that you can slip over your dog's collar for holidays and special days. I guess we could do all kinds of stuff, too.
And so??
