1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The Romance of England Past Swap on: February 24, 2016 12:47:42 PM


I recently got caught up in the Downton Abbey series and fell in love with Edwardian England all over again. The dresses, the castles, the manners and sights and food...it's all so yummy!! I think everyone should have a little bit of Regency/Victorian/Edwardian in their home. Think "Pride and Prejudice" splendor, "Downton Abbey" elegance, "A Little Princess" frills!

What about swapping one grandiose large/medium item (2-3+ hours work) and two more understated smalls (1 hour or so) to celebrate the Romance of England Past? I won't be able to host the swap but I would join if someone likes the idea enough to pick it up  Grin C'mon, who doesn't like a little bit of Jane Austen?  Wink

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / David Bowie Tribute swap? on: January 11, 2016 08:19:40 AM
It was announced on January 10th that the legendary singer, David Bowie, has ended is battle with cancer and passed on  Sad Cry Wouldn't it be wonderful if we held a tribute swap for him to remember the man as he was? He did so many things! Labyrinth was my personal favorite and there could be a swap just about that but David was much more than just a movie.

  I can't organize but I'm putting the idea out there in case someone would like to pick this up and run with it  Smiley

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Advent Calendar Swap?? on: November 17, 2014 11:58:01 AM
    I realize that this is probably way late in the month to be bringing this up since I think the Advent Calendar swap usually does the crafting in November and then opens everything in December but I'm kinda hoping people will be up for it regardless of the time of year  Cheesy I saw a matchbox advent calendar recently and it pinged on my radar that there hasn't been one of these in recent memory.
    I don't think I'm willing to host something this huge but I wanted to put the feelers out for interest. I really look forward to this swap every year but for the last two I don't think there's been one  Cry And I've never participated.


     Thoughts, comments and opinions are welcome  Grin

Harry Potter? THEN THIS IS THE SWAP FOR YOU!!!!!  Grin I propose we ease the cravings a bit with a shot of crafty yumminess and give a little boost to our Favorite Things collection!

Everyone that participates in this swap will have a mixed list of their top 5-10 TV shows, movies, books, manga, video games (whatever) that they miss the most and partners will have to research (a bit) and craft from that list. Please be sure to list at least 1 or 2 that your partner might possibly know right off the bat so it's not a struggle to pin down the likes. Please be sure to indicate WHAT media the subject IS so there is no confusion as to what is a TV show or movie etc and 1-2 characters/ scenes/fashion/episodes you loved about it.
EXAMPLE LIST:
1) Angel (TV show)--Cordelia's one-liners, Spike, Angel puppet episode
2) Harry Potter (Movies series AND book series)-- Hermione, Animals (owls), Prisoner of Azkaban
3) Kingdom Hearts 1 (Video Game)-- Alice's World, Sora, Princesses
4) Fruits Basket (Japanese anime AND manga)--Kyo Sohma, Yuki Sohma, ayame Sohma
5) Nightmare Before Christmas (Movie)-- Zero, the spiky eccentric art work, Sally
6) Mass Effect (xbox 360 video game)--Asari/Liara race, concept guns, Tali's smart mouth


This is a 3 POINT SWAP!!!! So you will need to make either three small things or one medium thing to meet swap requirements Smiley (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars)
(Small=1 or more crafting hours or $2-$10 dollars)

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I miss that SOOOOO much!!! Swap on: August 31, 2014 01:23:59 PM


Ever crave to have more of a TV series, Movie, Video Game, Book series that used to be popular but has sadly been forgotten? Twilight? Gilmore girls? Naruto? Mine Craft? Tiger's Curse Saga?

Maybe we should have a swap to ease the cravings a bit!!!  Cheesy

Everyone will have a list of their top 5 TV shows, movies, books, video games (whatever) that they miss the most and partners will have to research (a bit) and craft from that list.

~maybe do 1 large/medium and 3 smalls?

~Possibly beginning October for sign-ups depending on popularity
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Seasonal Scavenger Hunt Craft swap on: July 29, 2014 01:34:29 PM
 
                     

I wondered how many others out there wanted to have a swap that was just for seasonal things: Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. You can get ready for the Fall season or hold on to Summer a little bit longer ^^ Or start early on gift giving.

~I thought it might be fun to do a scavenger swap style as well since it's usually more challenging to find certain items in certain seasons (like flip flops in Fall  Cheesy)

~Was thinking maybe late August/early September after school madness has calmed a bit and before the crazy holidays stuff kick in Tongue

~Make it a 4-6 point swap so crafting at least 1 medium or large (or something that takes 2 hours or more)

~Some examples of Scavenger Hunt swaps:

Am open to amendments and suggestions on this of course  Cheesy
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Holiday/Seasonal Notecard swap? Get started early!! >:D on: November 08, 2013 07:50:09 AM
I don't know how you feel about it but in my opinion it's so depressing getting those plain boring cards in the mail with the generic "happy holidays" printed on the inside with a "love, (insert name here)" =\ I'm sure it's fast and easy to throw in an envelope but it's so IMPERSONAL.

    Why not get more personal? Cheesy

I realize there might be families that are very large and a little notecard swap like this one won't cover a lot of members but to those closest to you, what a surprise to get a hand made card!!

It'll be a quick, easy, and lightweight swap for the out of states swappers ^^

~We could do either ONE partner and send more cards or TWO partners and send less cards a piece.
~Can do any size, depending on partner preferences
~Envelopes are a MUST to send along with cards
~One month crafting time

  (Note: Can't organize yet but still wanted to throw out the idea in case someone wanted to pick up the challenge Wink )

Whatcha think?  Cheesy
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Embroidery Kit Swap ^^ on: January 31, 2013 10:58:23 AM
 

 It'll probably be a fairly large swap with lots of crafting time. I mean, it IS embroidery  Cheesy
Have a swap where partners will craft:

1. a medium hoop
2. Pincushion
3. Needle Book
4. one SIMPLE, SMALL, half-completed hoop that partner can finish for practice. (<--mainly to get the feel for the stitch size and stitches themselves.)

5. And then also send some supplies to further encourage future hoopla! This can be for either CROSS-STITCH OR EMBROIDERY!!!!

   It's a half-hearted hope of mine that one day I'll get into actual embroidery, not just cross-stitch. I know that if I at least had all the supplies on hand for it, and a good example of how it's done, I may just start! I figure this swap might apply to other crafters on the fence about starting as well or crafters that want to learn to cross-stitch ^^
