And remember, this swap is for just ONE item.  No more.  Cheesy

Hi ladies.  Just thought I'd let you know that I'm hosting a One Tiny Doctor Who Swap (Round 2), in addition to padfoot's awesome Doctor Who swap at the end of April. 

Like other OTT's the idea is to make ONE fantastic crafted object, that is 4"x4" or smaller.  No extras.  Just one amazingly crafted little item.  You can check out the One Tiny Doctor Who Thing - Round 2 Swap HERE

I was thinking of doing a round of One Tiny Doctor Who Thing soon too.  I PMed the person who ran the last round to ask if they'd like to do another, or if they would mind if I organized one, but I haven't heard back from them in about 2 weeks.

I'd be in for that one! I love making & getting Doctor Who crafts.

Ok, since the lovely padfoot will be hosting another regular DW Swap around mid to late April, I decided to start my One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Swap now.  That way those who want to do a smaller swap and those who want to start crafting right away can do so, and those who want to hold out for a bigger or more traditional swap can have padfoot's to look forward to.  You can find the OTDWT - Round 2 Swap HERE

Padfoot, I hope that's okay with you!!!

3346  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / One Tiny Doctor Who Thing - Round 2 (Signups CLOSED, Sendouts 5/7) on: March 29, 2011 08:47:09 AM

Swap name: One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: jennieingram
Sign-up date range: 3/29/11 - 4/9/11
Date to send item by: 5/7/11
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

Details of swap:
Each participant will be required to send out 1 TINY Doctor Who themed item, measuring no more than 4x4.  Your item should be physically small BUT, it should also be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so as to represent the best of what you can craft.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, stencil, or take any other steps to make it a really special piece.)

* You will receive only one partner.
* You may only send that partner ONE Tiny Doctor Who craft
* All items must be 4"x4" or smaller in their natural state.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!  

What does in their natural state mean?  That means that if the object was resting on a table, it would be 4x4.  A book for example that had a cover 4 square, would count as a OTT, even though when you open the book it could be 4x8, because in its natural state, a book lays closed.

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

Do you have access to a camera and agree to post pictures of what you receive in the gallery and take pictures of what you send (just in case)?
Do you agree to post regularly (once a week minimum) in the thread and and keep in good contact with your partner and organizer?

3347  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows - Part II is coming! on: March 29, 2011 06:12:32 AM
My first swap's send out is not until May 5th!  Drat, I'd love to get in on this Harry Potter goodness!

Actually the sendout date on the M&M Mini Tube swap is May 2nd, not the 5th.  And I just noticed an error on the dates on this swap.  Sign-ups are actually May 5th-May 21st, (11 days more than previously listed) giving you enough time for your package to arrive and receive feedback.

Also, you can always send out early in your current swap.  Just because send-outs are on a certain date doesn't mean you MUST send on that day.  You area always more than welcome to craft and send early in any swap.  And if you let your organizer know you would like to join another swap, they are usually very accommodating in getting you feedback quickly once your package has arrived.

I'm so glad you liked your package KrazyKitty! 

Since I got questions about them, I thought I should explain two things in my package:

#1.  I had just finished the package when I saw the trailer for the new season, and Matt Smith sitting in the Oval Office claiming to need a SWAT team, street level maps of Florida, a pot of coffee, 12 Jammie Dodgers and a fez.  So I decided that was clearly what KrazyKitty needed in preparation for the upcoming season.  Hence my including the fez, a packet of coffee to make a single pot, a street map of Florida printed from Google, a picture of a SWAT team dressed as Father Christmas, and of course the Jammie Dodgers.

#2. About the Jammie Dodgers in Tins:
The truth is I tried to find real Jammie Dodgers and couldn't.  You can get them on Amazon.com for $4 a package, but have to pay $7.50 shipping!  I found several recipes that claim to have them copied, but I wanted to get KrazyKitty her Angel package as soon as possible since she already got flaked on, and wanted them to be fresh.  So I went with Plan B.  I looked up what the packaging was like then I bought some cute yellow tins at the craft store. (I wanted a bigger tin that I could fit 12 cookies in, but the bigger ones were all dented, so I bought two small ones instead.)  Then I found the Jammie Dodger logo online and printed it onto label making paper, cut them out, and popped them on the tins.  Then I bought some Pepperidge Farm Montieri Cookies and put 6 cookies in each. 

I know it was cheating but I just couldn't let the idea go of sending her that list of random items. For those of you looking for them, I hear that you can find them at some specialty shops that carry English foods, and like I said, I found them on Amazon but they were expensive.  I also found another brand at Walmart in with Hispanic cookies but they were strawberry filled instead of Raspberry, and they were a bit more dry and crumbly than the Montieri's.  The Montieri's were more shortbread like, and crisper.  I'm terribly sorry I can't remember the other cookie's name.  They came in chocolate or strawberry varieties and were in the cookie aisle.   Smiley

Ex_Gratia was clearly the voice of reason I needed in my crafting yesterday.  I managed to get through a bunch of projects including my OTT ideas, and a new Forrest Friends loaded charm bracelet that I've been meaning to make for my etsy forever.  I'm really happy with how everything turned out.  Now I just have to decide what to send to my lovely partner. 

Oh, and Ex_Gratia's OTT is A-FREAKIN'-MAZING!  You will all be jealous beyond measure and will end up with sore fingers from wisting so instantaneously when you see it.  I am always in awe of the things she does, but this one is just FANTASTIC.  Over-the-moon, out-of-this-world FANTASTIC.
