1  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Replacemnt Partner Needed ASAP! on: October 27, 2012 01:32:38 PM
Replacement partner needed asap for the secret santa swap asap!  Please pm me for details as I do not want to ruin the surprise for anyone.    Must be kinda open to what you receive, as the person that would now be sending to you has less crafting time and must not have allergies to cats or dogs.   Please pm me for more details!  Thanks! 
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Secret Santa Swap! on: September 25, 2012 09:30:06 AM

So I was talking to my friend johnson.mom2two and we wanted to do a secret santa swap!  I looked through the past swaps and saw the secret santa party ones.  I pm'ed the organizers, but they haven't been around in a while.  So I think we are going to organize this!  Who would be up for a secret santa swap?  


I think we'd keep it pretty much the same idea, you don't know who your partner is, and we all open our presents up and post on the same day or maybe weekend to give everyone a lilttle time! We will keep it a nice and easy 3 point swap with one medium and one small and then also a small store bought item just as a little added bonus.  We would start sign-ups oct 1st and go through the 15th with sendouts sometime in the middle of November and then opening weekend would be the 17th and 18th.  


Thoughts or ideas?  Does this sound good to everyone, is there anything you'd want changed from previous rounds?  

johnson.mom2two did I miss anything?

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Homemade Hoop on: July 19, 2012 05:07:51 AM
I made this for the IVP swap.  My partner is starting a hoopla wall so I made a few hoops.   This one was inspired by something she pinned.

I came up with this



Its stitched on a vintage pillowcase with a pattern from Aunt Martha.  I added some vintage buttons and ric-rac, the scissors and needle are new though.  I love how it turned out.  I wanted to keep this one!

Who is your favorite character from the books?  Peeta
Which district would you like to live in? District 4 because if my name comes up at least I can say I seen the ocean, right?
Are their any items youd risk the cornucopia for? Jacket or Sleeping bag cannot stand cold. Maybe a knife so I can have weapon. I dont think I would be able to handle the initial bloodbath at the cornucopia. I would most likely pull a Foxface and steal from the career tributes later one.
Favorite quote from the book?
Remember, were madly in love, so its all right if you kiss me anytime you feel like it. peeta
"You don't have much competition anywhere.
What crafts would you like to receive? I am open to anything
Anything you dont want? No
Do you have any allergies? NO
Do you have a wist or pinterest? Yes a pinterrest  http://pinterest.com/stantsch/
Do you have access to a camera and agree to post pictures of what you receive in the gallery and take pictures of what you send (just in case)?' Yes
Anything else you want your partner to know? I am open to any form of craft. Love this book my favorite parts are within the games. My favorite part as to be the tracker jackers part.  It shows Katniss and Rue first working together. I also love Katniss outsmarting the careers.

Thanks!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / swapping before pinterest on: June 06, 2012 01:10:10 PM
I'm fairly new to swapping, I've only been doing it a year, so I've always had Pinterst.  I wanted get some thoughts from the veteran swappers.  Do you like it better now with Pinterst, where you can see everything that your partner likes in one place.  Is it easier now or do you feel like you don't get to know your partner as well since you don't have to ask as many questions and don't have to stalk as much.

Thanks!

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mario Hoop on: February 22, 2012 03:09:28 PM
I made this for a hoop swap before Christmas. I love the way it turned out, I hated to see it go.  








The pattern is from a coloring page I found online.  I was very happy with the fill on his overalls, it is a long short stitch, it was the first time attempting it.  I don't think I did it completely right but I like the look.  

Thanks!
