Me too.  I guess about .05 cents on the average spice, and a little more if it was something I remember buying that was more expensive.

So when we get paired up do we get paired up with people from the same house or another house. I ask because something I'd like to make takes me a little longer than the allowed swap time but I'd love to make it anyway..... so if I knew which house to make it for I could get started. Wink

If they didn't like/need/want something like that I know I could find someone else who would I just wouldn't mind getting started early. Cheesy

There are a great many factors that go into partnering.  Shipping Internationally and Allergies top the list.  Next comes swap and crafting experience, and sometimes age. 

Further along in the partnering process I do take some requests into consideration such as "I'd like to swap with another Hufflepuff", etc., but they are not the only factors involved. 

If you are seriously interested in making something you've dreamed up, I'd recommend making it for yourself.  That gets the crafty urge out of your system, allowing you to move on to other things.  Then when you eventually get partners you should be able to focus on their interests and create something personal, something just for them. I always find it's best to allow yourself to be inspired by your partner because you get some of the most creative crafts that way.

Wow, I was so impressed by just the trunk.  The whole package is... beyond... fabulous.  I could hardly get to the end before hitting "this rocks!"!!

Would you be able to share anything on how you made the trunk?  Was it a trunk-shaped box that you covered?  I love it so!

I bought a trunk shaped box at the craft store, and then stained it with wood stain markers.  I then mod podged on the travel stickers & Hogwarts crest and glued the leather strapping on.  The whole thing got a few coats of matte mod podge to seal it all (not over the leather).  Hope that helps!

(Luckily I have this box where I just happen to be placing random goodies for someone, and this someone adores HP so my game will have a good home. Wink )


Hmmmm.....

Just checking in.  I have not made decisions on my mug rugs yet.  Sad  I have ideas for both my partners thanks to their kindly answering tons of my questions, but I am a little distracted with work and a custom jewelry order I'm making up for a fellow Craftster.  I keep thinking I should just dive in and make my mug rugs, but as I haven't settled onto a specific design yet, I'm hesitant.  I much prefer working when I know exactly what I want to do, and feel really positive about it.  I think that results in my best crafting.  So fear not dear partners, I've not forgotten you.  I just really want to do right by both of you!

They look like this, if it helps:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saltine_cracker

I know some folks in the UK have found them at Aldi, if you have one in your area.

My poor dear husband has stopped questioning my swapping.  He looks on, with polite interest as I unpack things and squee.  He was very happily surprised when he found there was a package for him from pinkleo in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap.  And incidentally, he wears the scarf and hat she made him all the time.  Cheesy
