There will be a first post that has a craftster (person A) and their wish list of 15 handmade items for babies/kids as well as a list of supplies. A second craftster (person B) will look over that list, choose something to make for person A and then post their own wish list. Person C comes along and choose from Bs wish list, and in turn posts their own and so on. (If Person C wanted to make Person B two smaller items, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  
When you claim someone it is important to post your claim status up to that point. So if this is your first claim you would put 1/0/0 meaning you had made one claim, not shipped any yet, and none had been received yet.

8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Making Homemade Soap--HELP! on: February 14, 2012 05:57:32 PM
 I am wanting to dabble in making my own soap. Actually, my husband left today for a business trip and is encouraging me to try making a batch while he's gone to pass the time. He's excited for me to make candles too =)
Anyway, I know there's a million different ways to make soap.

What are your preferred kinds to make (if you do) and why do you prefer making those?

What are you preferred kind to use/receive?

I live in Idaho so I'm wanting something that won't be too harsh on skin since it's already cold and we have really dry air.
Thanks!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Any Rings Makers Out There? on: February 09, 2012 07:11:50 AM
I'm going to ask again here, in the hopes that someone might be able to help me out. Does anyone here make metal rings? Or rings that are really durable for men? DH lost his on the lake this summer and we have yet to replace it. We share the same birthday on Feb 21, and I'd REALLY love to surprise him with some sort of replacement then. He wears a size 10 I believe.
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Chain Style Swap for Children's Items? on: January 26, 2012 10:01:09 AM


Would anyone be interested in a swap for kids items that is set up chain style?
For anyone who doesn't know what I mean, here is a brief description I stole from the Ongoing Wish swap since I think they describe it best.

~~Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) -
~~Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.
~~Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.
~~Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!
~~Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  ( Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.
