1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Post Apocalyptic Survival Swap (Sign Up: 10/2/12-10/22/12 Send Out:11/30/12) on: October 18, 2012 01:33:29 PM
Whoop, questionnaire sent!

Lydiaharper and VampAracely, you're right, there are loads of directions this could go in but I think that's a good thing. It'll make it easier to settle on something in the theme that your partner will like. So, possible options, something related to your partner's favourite post-apocalyptic film/tv show/book, clothes or jewellery with a post-apocalyptic feel, items that would be useful in a worst-case scenario - like a mini survival kit, or something that your partner would really want to keep with them. I think this swap gallery is going to have a huge range of stuff, it'll be great!

I've not swapped for so so long - I'm really looking forward to this, I'm going to get my questionnaire done as soon as I'm reunited with my laptop.

I wasn't sure I'd have enough time for a 5 point swap but Ivory has kindly said that I can do 3 crafted points with the rest being purchased, far better for me time wise! So if anyone was interested in this swap but wished it was slightly smaller...I'm here, swap with me! I do live in the UK though so make sure you're okay to send to there.

I can't believe I've been so absent for such an awesome swap! Everyone's received (and sent) amazing stuff so far. I'm loving the kitties cross stitch!

Oh, and if you're in my group head to the first page of the gallery. The list for the second package is up along with send out dates if you've received already. Let me know if there are any problems!

Oooh, I've received. Here are my many wonderful goodies from Ruby Copperhead who, by the way, wrapped everything in really cheery napkins.

Her favourite colour scheme - rainbow.



A crochet necklace. I love this! The last swap I had with Ruby she sent me some crocheted bracelets and I've been wearing them so much, this is just perfect. I love how chunky and statement-making it is.

Her favourite way to relax - her Macs and yummy shower gel



A pencil sharpener that does look exactly like an iMac. Genius!



These also represent her region. I can't read the German but the pink one smells of roses and the orange one is citrusy (my favourite as I generally use showers to wake up).

Something representing a major goal - hiking in Scandanavia - a Lordi (band) box. I really couldn't get a good photo of this, Ruby, so post one if you have one.

Something to keep her organised - pill box



i could be more creative with my use for this but I think I'll use it as intended...for pills. The boy's parents buy massive bottles of painkillers in America and we're constantly stealing them in little plastic sandwich bags. Using this will make far more sense. And yay! Star Trek.

Something to do with yarn - Spock amigurumi



How adorable is this?! He's only maybe 2 or 3 inches high. So cute. I think he's my favourite item, except for when the necklace is my favourite item. He now lives on my bf's computer along with a spongebob toy, a plushie turtle and a paper cut out sad Keanu (don't ask...). Spock also represents a major achievement for Ruby - studying cognitive science.

Favourite sport and a new interest - archery and vikings. Again, I'm missing the picture but Ruby sent me a little viking archer figurine. He reminds me of the toys I had when I was younger, such a nostalgia trip.

A major achievement in her life (hehe, I agree Ruby, I hope this isn't the biggest achievement of your life Cheesy) - a lemon..I'll let Ruby explain that one Cheesy



Also shown is a little crochet eye. Both of these are so cute...I'm such a sucker for tiny yarn objects. You'll have to send me a pattern for the eye, Ruby, my plushies would be so so much cuter if I progressed from just using felt.

Postcards of Ruby's town



These are so pretty, I especially like the stone work one. Ruby also sent me a few tourist brochures and said that she can't believe her town has tourists...well...I can totally see why it does. It looks beautiful. The wooden framed architecture is lovely, and it's on a river too. I'd totally be a tourist there.

Something that's important to her - ecological chocolate. Ruby likes to live green and this seems a very tasty way to do it. There's no picture, but that definitely isn't because I ate it all before I took them...honest.

Something representing her favourite book (possibly the photoalbum prompt also?) - the librarian in Paris



I made Ruby a sock librarian (from Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels) in our last swap and Ruby took him on holiday with her! I love these pictures, really made me grin. Next time I go away, Ruby, I'm going to take Spike with me so he can rock out with his cock out (only literally if no children are present) in an entirely new locale. There were a few more pictures along with some of Ruby's kids, who are gorgeous by the way. I want to ruffle their hair! It's so nice seeing a swap item being enjoyed.

And then there were extras



Seriously Ruby, thank you so much for the extra jager hat! Ruby sent me one in a previous swap and it's resulted in so many fights (not real ones) with the boy over who gets to wear it. Now we can have one each and peace has been restored Cheesy. She also sent gloves, to match another previous swap item (do you think we swap together too much? I think not...) and cough sweets made in her town. Phew! So many things!

Thank you Ruby. As always, you're super awesome to swap with and I'm already excited about starting your next package. Oh and you're right, your hand writing is terrible Cheesy. Hehe, only joking. I think I managed to read it all  Grin.

Just out of interest, what is labour/labor day in celebration of?

I'll change your thing to having sent Sandra. If people in my group could PM me when they send/receive/whatever that'd be ace. That way I definitely won't miss anyone!

Send on the 7th guys, that's fine. We forget sometimes that you crazy American folk have different holidays  Grin.

I can't believe you're all so far ahead of me. I'm only 3/4 through my first item though it is quite a big one. And I have so many plans I need to get moving on. So far though, no orange for you Ruby...

Yay, I love that some of our pairs seem to have worked out, even if there have been a few bloopers. Which I've PMed you about, Ruby.
