1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Thrifted Transformations Swap on: December 01, 2016 06:48:32 AM
This sounds interesting...I get bored and look thru the galleries of swaps that were done here a long time ago, and there were a few I came across that had the same basic premise:

-Could only spend a set amount of money
-The majority of the crafted item had to be made with the bought stuff (not from stash)
-The receipt had to be either posted or a list of how and where the money was spent

Fast or slow, progress is progress.

My BFF just reminded me of this.

Maybe it'll help you too, trinalocakary.  Smiley

yoopidou, I think you should open up the swap anyhow, and we'll work with what we have.  It's a low cost, low stress swap, and perhaps when people see the swap signups, they'll decide to join in!  Cheesy

JS, so many people on Craftster feel the way you do, that they don't think they have the skill or talent to make a particular craft.  Then they finally try it and it's magnificent!  Cheesy 

I also think that when we see things made by people who are experts in what they do-for example, onyxnox and kbrison come to mind regarding papercrafted items  Kiss-I know I tend to initially feel that what I do will not be good enough, but then I remember that this is something they've been doing awhile and have a strong affinity towards.

I feel somewhat the way you do though, about papercrafts.  I don't think it's one of my strong points, but I've dove into making ATCs over this past year, and I have to tell you, I've felt more and more confident in my ability each time I make one.

IMHO as well, I think that even adding stickers, a hand-drawn picture, fancy cutting of the material that you are using to make the card, cutting and gluing images....I think that all adds up to CRAFTING a card.

Any other opinions?

I just had to put in my two cents worth about the tsums...I ADORE them too!!!!!  But I would not only go broke buying them, but I would have no place to put them.  Cry  Oddly enough, DH gave me a 'Star Trek' themed one.  Huh
