HALLALOO!  So please add Ru to my FAVO mad scientists list SG Grin  No Rupologies here Grin

*groan* OK now that was bad and I'm pretty pun-y myself.

2  Stuff a Small Box for Halloween Round 3 in New Swap Theme Ideas by spookygrrrly on: August 23, 2015 03:42:17 PM


It's been a while since I've done this swap since I was on a swapping hiatus. But it is about that time to start planning...

So if any of these things apply to you:

- You're swapping budget is a bit tight and you don't want to spend too much in shipping.
- You're looking for an easy first swap to get your feet wet.
- Heck your just looking for a swap that lets in first time swappers!
- You love Halloween.
- You love surprises.
- You love the challenge of seeing how much stuff you can get away with sticking into those priority mail boxes.
- You are in college/a parent/working a lot/just fracking busy!
- Did I mention loving Halloween?

This swap would be for you!

The main challenge is seeing just how much stuff you can get in a $5.95 flat rate priority box. At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the items need to be Halloween related. Past that...anything goes! I want this to be an easy, no stress sort of swap. Sound good?

If you are not sure what a small flat rate box check out the USPS site here: https://store.usps.com/store/browse/uspsProductDetailMultiSkuDropDown.jsp?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=43&productId=P_SMALL_FRB&categoryId=subcatMSS_B_Free

With enough interest I'll make sign ups in early September and give about a month to craft/stuff before send out.

Round 1 Gallery:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391918.0
Round 2 Gallery:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=414838.0

Oh and sorry...but it is USA participants only since part of the point of the swap is seeing how much you can send for basically 6 bucks.

So who's ready for round 3?

Mad Doctors!  Mad Scientists!  Creatures, Mutations, Robot Monsters, Strange Experiments, Things Man Was Not Meant to Know! Wha ha ha ha ha!!!

What does Mad Science mean to you? Is it a laboratory filled with bubbling beakers and a crazed Doctor toiling over questionably ethical experiments? Or maybe it is the Steampunk inventor working on his steam powered robot army. Or is it all about creating contraptions to take over the tri-state area and thwart fedora wearing platypuses?

Practice your maniacal laughter and join the Mad Scientist 2015 swap to let loose your own inner mad scientist.

4  Re: Gallery for Around the World July Dotee swap in The Swap Gallery by spookygrrrly on: August 04, 2015 10:48:45 AM
My partner cmarion3 is currently on vacation until the 13th but she said once the tracking confirmed my package received to go ahead and post a pic of my dotee to the gallery. Smiley



One of cmarion3's countries was Germany and so I came up with this based off of German folk costumes. In hindsight I wish I had embellished with more embroidery but I am still happy with how she came out. Plus she's my very first dotee!

5  Wicked Women Altered Tin Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by spookygrrrly on: August 02, 2015 01:49:44 PM


Since well behaved women rarely make history lets have a swap that celebrates those bad girls we love so much! You could go historical (Lizzie Borden, Elizabeth Bathory, Typhoid Mary), literary (wicked stepmothers, wicked witches, villians), or those women who just buck authority and don't play by the "rules". However you want to define "wicked" is up to you.

The swap would be to craft one altered tin giving everyone time to focus on making a really nice item.

If their is enough interest I'd be happy to organize. Smiley

I received a wonderful dotee by cmarion3 on Thursday and am *finally* able to upload the pictures.

One of my countries was Mexico and I mentioned that Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists. She put this together to create this wonderful Frida dotee:



Her presentation was wonderful too. She decorated the box it was shipped in to recreate a Frida style painting:



Thanks so much cmarion3 she will have an honored place in my studio. Smiley

7  2013 Art Journal-along-CLOSED in Craftalongs by spookygrrrly on: January 05, 2013 10:59:44 PM

Welcome to the 2013 Art Journal-along! One of my goals for the new year is to work on my art journal everyday...even if it is as little as 5 minutes....I'd love it if I have some company on this journey. Smiley

This is a craft-along to help inspire, encourage, and help you create your own art journal. Collage, draw, paint, altered art...all forms of art journals are welcome to join.

You don't have to wait for a page to be done in order to post. In progress photos are welcome too. What to share a technique that you liked? Post that too! The idea is to cheer each other on as much as possible, share ideas, keep each other motivated, and have fun.

To help keep things organized I'm going to post news, links, and a link to your finished journal on page 1. Update your journal thread as you complete pages so that at the end of the year we can see all the journals. Though feel free to make any in progress posts in the main thread too.

10  Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Winter Holidays in New Swap Theme Ideas by spookygrrrly on: October 20, 2012 04:21:42 PM


Since the Stuff a Flat Rate Box for Halloween was so much fun...how about a winter holidays version?

This would be a non-denominational holiday swap so no matter what you celebrate you would be welcome to join!

The main challenge is seeing just how much stuff you can get in a $5.35 flat rate priority box. At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the items need to be your partner's winter holiday related. Past that...anything goes! I want this to be an easy, no stress sort of swap. Sound good?

If you are not sure what a small flat rate box check out the USPS site here: https://store.usps.com/store/browse/uspsProductDetailMultiSkuDropDown.jsp?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=43&productId=P_SMALL_FRB&categoryId=subcatMSS_B_Free

Sorry, but this would be a US only swap.

With enough interest I'll start the signups the beginning of Nov and send-outs would be mid Dec.
