1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / ZzzZZzZZZzz SWAP? on: September 05, 2006 06:02:20 AM
Am I the only one who needs to take the whole sleeping-8-hours advice a bit more serious? Cheesy
If not: wouldn't it be fun with a sleepy-time swap?

Pillow cases
Sleep masks
Night caps
Sleep enhancing/relaxing recipes (?)
Bed time music mix CD
Pyjamas
Slippers
Night time reading material


... to make from scratch, re-construct, embroider, draw, write, paint, print upon.
Cheesy YES?
     
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / EAR-BLING SWAP --- for Europeans/Scandinavians? on: September 05, 2006 03:46:05 AM
Hello ladies and gents! Cheesy

So, I'm always drooling over the earring swap galleries on Craftster, and always feel that I'd join in on the fun. I mean, who doesn't want to make (and receive) lots of cool earrings? Next second I realize I wouldn't afford sending all those packages away... Being a poor student and all... Smiley

Buuuuuuut. It is a lot less expensive to send a lot of packages inside Europe, and even cheaper shipping inside Scandinavia. (duh!) So I thought that if anyone else is longing for heaps and heaps of new earrings we could have a swap. YAAAAY!

Anyone interested?

Hello ladies and gents! Cheesy

So, I'm always drooling over the earring swap galleries on Craftster, and always feel that I should join in on the fun. I mean, who doesn't want to make (and receive) lots of cool earrings?

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "My Country doesn't Have That" PART II? on: August 19, 2005 03:37:35 PM
When Cassiemarie hatched the brilliant idea for a "My country doesn't have that" swap I wanted to join in on the fun, but couldn't. I was too swamped with other stuff.

Now I'm just wondering if anyone would be up for a Part 2? And if anyone would organize it?
(I have just been in 2 swaps and would feel too newbie to do it Embarrassed)

Here's what I can think of that my country do have, and would be easy to find for you guys:

Candies and chocolate bars. Swedish. European. (Lindt, Kinder Egg, Ritter Sports etc) and others.
Salty Licorice.
Crisp bread / Ryvita.
Elk / moose stuff. Grin (I noticed someone wanted elk jerky in the first MCDHT round)
Lego.
Moomin.
Yarns. Lovikka and others.
Nice fabrics (esp. vintage).
All sorts of craft related things. Supplies. Traditional and modern patterns. Magazines.
FACE Stockholm Make up. (http://www.facestockholm.com)
Sexy wooden clogs. Wink
Acne jeans. (http://www.acnejeans.com)
Cheap Monday jeans.
Julian Red jeans.
Nudie jeans. (http://www.nudiejeans.com)
Filippa K clothes.
IKEA stuff.
Dala horses. And other touristy pretty things.
Ordning&Reda.
Swedish Design. Roll Eyes

Some things on my list are kinda expensive, but I'm sure we could make some sort of a deal if anyone's interested. (And the reason I'm listing so many Swedish jeans brands is because of a friend of mine, who studied in the states and just came home, told me that Swedish jeans apparently is, and I quote: "the shit" over there. Grin If it really is I sure didn't know. But they are very nice. That I know. Smiley

And of course I could supply you with Swedish music, all sorts of ephemera, papers and such.

So, what do you guys think?

5  EUROPE / SCANDINAVIAN/NORDIC / SCANDINAVIANS on: July 01, 2005 12:38:50 PM
Hey you crafty Nordic kids, I know you're out there! Smiley

I just read Melladh's post about the Stockholm Street market and started to think: Wouldn't it be nice with a SCANDINAVIAN board here? Isn't it time for us to unite and let the rest of the wondrous craft nerd world know that we too are alive and craftin'? Cheesy

Do you guys think it'd be good/useful/fun to have a specific Scandinavian folder/forum at all? (Like the ITALY or TURKEY ones...)

There are some threads on similar topics already...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36085.0
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39148.0

Wouldn't it be cool to have one Scandinavian little corner of Craftster? The more the merrier:

We could do swaps easier (less expensive and much faster), maybe start a Stitch 'n Bitch, help eachother out getting in touch with consignment stores across our countries and so on. We could do, or even organize, craft-fairs. And give tips on craft stores and events in our specific cities.

Maybe we could start some traditionally Scandinavian craft-alongs. Just so the traditional techniques get a bit modernized and healthily experimented with, and won't be forgotten about. Example: I'm thinking about trying to do some punk-y Kurbits-painting (folk art) on clothes, in not-so-traditional color schemes... Cool It would be easier and more fun if someone else would embark on that at the same time so we could help eachother out.

I'll stop my rambling here Cheesy just got so excited thinking about all the fun...

Hej d, vi hrs!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HELP ME, I'M SWEDISH? ;) on: April 28, 2005 12:29:33 PM
I've posted this topic in another thread already (Washington), so excuse me if you already read it.

 OK, so here it goes (please bear with me):

I love kitsch. I love plastic. I love pop culture. I love miniatures.
This makes me an addict of those ArchieMcPhee-charms: https://www.mcphee.com/fashion/current/11098.html.)

I saw these cool charms at a local Swedish store and thought they were a tad bit too expensive (about 9$ for a set!!!!). I knew it would be cheaper to buy them online. But when visiting the site I noticed that there is only overseas shipping at a minimum order of 50$, which I don't have!

Boo hoo! Cry Sad story... But, I really need those charms - and who doesn't?! Roll Eyes

Since I know the McPhee store is in Seattle I'm wondering if any of you Seattle-ians would be so kind to help a lady in great need? I'm guessing someone in Seattle has the same tacky taste as me, and will visit the store some time (and then in fact might be able to pick up some for me)? Or maybe someone in the US will be ordering something from the online McPhee store in a near future, and then might be willing to order extra? No? Yes?
 

Is there any way I could talk you into doing me that BIG favour?
Bribes? I'll do just about anything...
Money? Oh, absolutely!
Swap? Trade? Work? Heck: I'd sell my dirty little soul if I had to! Wink

Or do you great ladies have any other, more convenient ideas? I'd appreciate it... Kiss

Any other ideas, ladies?

(If I actually had my friend still studying in Washington I'd be bathing in plastic charms right now... and then you wouldn't have to put up with my desperate ramblings... But oh, life is unfair!) Wink
