31  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pick and Choose Swap on: June 30, 2013 06:29:32 PM
I stumbled upon this Pick N Choose swap from 2008 I think and it seemed like it would be a fun idea. Basically each participant listed 5 themes and then 10 items they would like to receive and their partner then picked five items to craft, one for each theme. I think it might be easier to list 10 themes maybe so you would have more to choose from, and possibly more items, with having a requirement of listing 6 small items, 6 medium items, and 4 large items or something, but the idea of it still seems like it might be a fun swap, that way you are getting to group a lot of interests into one swap. The swap I was organizing just finished up so I could organize this one if there is much interest. Would anyone be interested? Smiley

Everyone should have feedback other than the last few people we're waiting on to send/receive. Smiley

Unfortunately I think we do have a flaker in this swap, Sad but I'm giving it to the 3rd before I search out a swap angel.

I am so sorry it took me so long, I don't have a camera or a laptop so it was difficult to put the pics of my swap up, the dasy my partner put it up was the day I was going to, she beat me to the punch!! (thanks again Smiley)

and i'm not sure why there was such a delay with the mailing, I sent the package on time and everything. Anyways, I'm very sorry I made you think I was flaking, I would never do that!! I'm glad Carbine_Corgi has received her package and this was a great first swap for me Smiley

I wasn't talking about you MissGoguen! A true flaker is someone who doesn't send and stops communicating. We have even had people send late but as long as they communicate with me and their partner about it they will still receive positive feedback. You did a great job with your first swap, I am glad you've enjoyed it! Smiley

I was talking about amnesia's partner, she stopped communicating with either us of quite some time back. I have posted for a swap angel and hopefully she can receive a great package soon. Smiley

I am loving this gallery! Great comic stuff. Cheesy

Thanks bookstorebabe!

Gallery Thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423609.msg5035288#msg5035288

If volunteering please PM me for approval. I am looking at a two week deadline to send, because amnesia has been waiting a long time. She sent internationally to her partner early and her partner flaked early on. Whoever volunteers, please be willing to send her a nice package as she's been very patient and nice about everything! Smiley This is a 5 point swap, with the stipulation that one item must be a large or medium, not all smalls.

Angel is needed for amnesia. She lives in the US.

What are your favorite comic titles?
Appleseed
Air
Fables
Fatale
Hack/Slash
Kabuki
Lady Mechanica
Mind the Gap
Witchblade

Manga:
Nana
Honey & Clover
Queensblade
Tenjo Tenge
Ruroni Kenshin

What are your favorite genres? (i.e. Superhero, Horror, Science Fiction, etc.) - I like sci fi, but don't read as much in comic form .. In comic form, I'd say action, crime drama, historical drama, and human interest

Who are your favorite characters? I tend to like strong female action characters -- but from classc comics - Rogue, Darkstar, Phoenix, Witchblade, Wonder Woman

Are there any comics and/or characters you really dislike and wouldn't be happy to receive anything crafted of?   Nope - I've run the gamut over the years (from the dark and angsty to the cute and sweet)

What kind of crafting can you do? Sewing, drawing, mixed media crafting, some papercrafts

What kind of crafting do you admire? resin, glasswork, more advanced polymer clay and ceramics  work, more advanced jewelry work

Can you list 3 (or more if you like) things or types of things you would love to receive?  I definitely use cross-body book bags, or cross-body farmers market bags (since we banned plastic bags in my city and paper bags cost $).. I wear necklaces and statement earrings, hairclips.. I could use a simple Kindle cover.. I always use tea towels..small figurines are fine too..

Is there anything you would prefer not to receive? Things that are very large and decorative (only because I live in a small space)

Do you prefer to send and receive extras or prefer not to? I'd like folks to feel no pressure to send extras... I like to send extras if I have stuff that makes sense for the crafter (in the vein of a pseudo-destash) ..otherwise, I might add in some candies or something, but if I don't have anything that fits with the theme, then I don't make extras..

What are your favorite colors?  I like all colors... but tend to like richer or more vibrant colors on stuff I own

What are your Sizes? (In case your partner would like to make you clothing or jewelry) Shirt size, Pant Size, Wrist Size? I'm roundish... ask if you need these.

Do you have a pinterest/wist/blog you would like your partner to use for inspiration?
http://pinterest.com/kelly_yamamoto/boards/

Do you have any allergies? Dairy, juniper

Is there anything else you would like your partner to know? I like plenty of comics I don't read regularly (and married someone who hangs out with guys from the comic book store every week)... we collect plenty of off-stream character figurines based on aesthetics alone... so feel free to craft a new character or something not listed if it is easier for you.. I love checking out new stuff too.
