3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Children's Literature Swap on: April 05, 2016 01:53:24 PM
Lately I've been reading the Adventures of Frog and Toad to my little sister, and kind of wished that I had some embroideries based on it.

I think that it would be fun to have a swap where we made items based on the books that we loved as a kid, or the books that the kids in your family love.
For instance: Frog and Toad, Stellaluna, Dr. Suess, Llama Llama Red Pajama, Harry Potter, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Dealing with Dragons, Captain Underpants, etc.

It could be a medium sized swap with the options to spoil. I couldn't organize until next month, but if someone wanted to organize earlier that would be great!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stuff a flat rate Kawaii Swap on: February 02, 2016 11:41:50 PM
One of my first swaps was a kawaii swap and it was awesome!

Who can't use more cute stuff in their lives? Especially when those things are on the small side, and can fit into a flat rate.  Some ideas: Amigurami, small embroideries, hello kitty, pencils and notebooks, etc. The possibilities are endless!

March or April signup?
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Flora and Fauna Swap? on: January 03, 2016 12:24:37 AM


I think we need a swap dedicated to all the beautiful flora and fauna in this world, dont you?  Grin

It could be a 3, or 5 point swap with the option to craft extras.

You could choose to put specifics on your questionnaire, or write down regions of the world whose flora and fauna you admire. For instance, perhaps you like ranunculus flowers, beetles, and pygmy deer.  Or perhaps everything that exists in the rainforest and Australia are fair game.

There is a plethora of items that your partner could craft, or that you could craft for your partner: Dolls, paintings, wood burnings, amigurami, bags, photos, etc.

Perhaps the swap could take place in February or March?
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / stuff a small flat rate valentine's day box? on: December 14, 2015 08:54:25 PM
similar to the stuff a small halloween flat rate box, but with valentine's day stuff. Perhaps a mid-January sign up date?
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Disney Swap on: November 12, 2015 03:20:23 PM
It seems like it's time for another one. I've been playing Tsum Tsum and looking at the Disney Japan store and would really love some more Disney stuff. Anyone interested? I'm open for any time frame. I would also prefer not to organize, but will if nobody steps up.

Here's my Disney Pinterest board if you would like some inspiration.
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Inter-faith Winter Holiday Swap? on: October 17, 2015 02:50:03 AM
So I usually see a lot of Christmas swaps around this time, but I am sure there are many people on this website who do not celebrate Christmas but do celebrate different holidays such as Hanukkah, Kwanza, Winter Solstice, Festivus, etc. Perhaps there are craftsters of interfaith families as well. (People who only celebrate Christmas would be welcome as well!)

Partners would not be matched up on their Faiths, but rather on their skill sets and desires. So you may get someone who shares the same holidays as you, or you may not depending on your questionnaire. You could put down multiple holidays and have your partner choose from them if you wish.

The details of this swap would include:a crafted small or medium nicely wrapped gift from your partner's wishlist (doesnt have to be holiday themed), a food item or something that relates to your partner's holiday, and a handmade card pertaining to your partner's holiday.

I think it would be a fun way to spread the holiday cheer, and maybe learn about someone else's holiday/traditions.

Sign-ups could maybe be mid-November?
