131  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Mixed Media Fairytale Doll Swap on: December 07, 2009 09:24:44 AM
im in the fairygodmother swap right now, and people have been making the most beautiful fairygodmoither dolls. a lot of people here seem to be able to make gorgeous dolls out of mixed media, and ive been really wanting to make one lately. i saw past doll swap galleries, and i was thinking that we should have another one, maybe around januaryish? it would be cool to have people list their favorite fairytale characters and creatures such as cinderella, trolls, etc. and then have people spend a lot of time on one doll and make it come out fantastic.
132  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Folk Art Swap on: December 06, 2009 07:27:35 PM
so ive been looking at hungarian embroidery lately, and it is so beautiful and inspiring. i generally find folk art beautiful, and im sure other people feel the same way. i was thinking of maybe doing a folk art valentine;s day swap-would people be interested? i would want it to be a large one thing swap-or maybe a tiny swap. preferences?
133  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Steampunk Circus Swap (SU 12/4/09-12/22/09 SO 2/15/10) on: December 04, 2009 02:48:28 PM
The Steampunk Circus Swap

gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334745.new#new

Have you ever imagined how awesome it would be to have bears riding elephants while shooting with ray guns at seals that were jumping through flaming hula hoops? Well, for those of you who have, this swap was made for you. This swap combines both the love of Steampunk/Victoriana with the whimsicalness of the circus.
Some common thoughts that may be running through your head is, well, what can I make for this swap? Well, the possibilities are endless! Lets say you are not very into the circus but you love Steampunk- your partner has the option of crafting items to go along with your Steampunk ensemble, and has the option of not adding circus like elements to it. For all we know, you may decide to wear these items to the circus and therefore it goes along with the theme. Along the same lines, if your partner is more into the idea of the circus, than you may craft things that a Gentleman or Madam would like to see in the said circus.
Bottom line is, however you wish to interpret this theme is up to you! Just make sure to be clear with your partner and to have good communication.

This is a 6point swap, and for people who do not like the point system, a small, medium, and large swap. I expect communication once a week until you have both sent and received so that there are no flakers!

134  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / silhouette/cameo swap on: November 23, 2009 07:47:21 PM
i was looking at some crafts that featured silhouettes-shirts, paintings, bags, and i was marveling at how simple they look to the untrained eye, and at how beautiful they are. i thought of the cutest idea on how to make a cameo themed bag, and i was thinking that it would be cute for a swap. anyone interested?

(wow i post a lot of swap ideas here,lol.)
135  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pastry Themed Swap on: November 21, 2009 07:44:41 PM
i was looking at other food themed swaps, and i was thinking that it would be cute to do a pastry themed swap, where people send and receive items that are pastry theemed such as jewelry, house items, etc, and possibly some actual pastries. would anyone be interested in this? perhaps we could do this around valentine's day?
136  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / another spa swap? on: November 11, 2009 04:24:55 PM
i was looking at past swap galleries and they looked like so much fun-would there be interest for one during december/january? and would you guys prefer to have permanent swap partners or have it more sweatshoppe styled? personally, i prefer the sweatshoppe styled one but id be interested in both. would anyone be interested in organizing?
137  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Whimsical Circus Swap on: November 02, 2009 06:18:53 PM
when i think of the circus i always picture circue du soleil or cartoon animals doing tricks. i would love to have a swap where people could exchange circus themed items such as clothing, accesories, or even toys and dolls.
what do you guys think? are there any ways youd wish for me to expand on this idea? any interests?
138  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / lucky Pooh swap-a swap about poop! on: October 26, 2009 08:08:53 PM
i was wondering if there are people out there who love poop as much as i do-and want items made to look like poop, such as pillows and hair accesories.
139  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Steampunk/Victoriana swap on: October 24, 2009 07:47:14 PM
so it seems that a lot of people are really into steampunk, and yet there hasnt been a steampunk swap yet. there was a victoriana swap that looked pretty cool, but i want this swap to be more steampunky. i was thinking that this swap should be  6-8 points, and that the signups should be in november with a two month crafting time period.what do you guys think?

oh,and here is a link to the voctoriana swap gallery:
140  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Hot Cherry Pie Toppings (img heavy) on: October 19, 2009 06:36:35 PM
so last year i went as a hot cherry pie, and i decided that this year i would wear the same thing.
i made one of these to wear on my birthday which is also on halloween, and another for a swap:

im not sure if you can tell the difference, but one has a sparkly ribbon and the other doesnt, one is to the side, and my one is in the middle.

here is the back of my costume in this pic:

what do you guys think?
