Details of swap:
...
For the un-initiated:
NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which begins Nov. 1 and ends Nov. 30th.
Its a month of insane writing fun, with the goal being to write a 50K word novel (its its roughest draft form quantity, not quality. That comes later).
If you aren't a participant of NaNoWriMo: that's okay! If interested in joining many will encourage you. If you just want wordy inspirational stuff... we can do that too.

For those interested in participating:

This swap is for sharing inspiration. Word count tricks. Inner Editor lock-up ploys. Snacks and ideas to help the words flow late into the night. Sending beacons of hope to help the lost and forlorn make it through the endless nights of I must write 3667 words today! And I watched Big Bang Theory reruns all night aaaaaah! Im never going to get this done!

This will be a 3-point swap, equivalent to 1 medium or a couple small items. Though please do communicate with your partner if you wish to do more. I tend to get carried away with NaNoWriMo related stuff, but its going to be a laid back, no stress swap. Theres enough stress in November.

For some swap ideas: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422782.0#axzz2cCCaisj3

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Earlier paintings: on: July 14, 2013 11:43:02 AM
I'm planning a 3rd painting today, and was wondering where the heck to post it...and I found this board Smiley Yaay!

Now I want to share my 1st and 2nd paintings, done for swaps and long sent out (well: they were done within the past year):



The first paintings were altered playing cards in similar mien. Unfortunately I can't find pics of them on my Craftster photo bucket.

This painting was done on muslin with acrylics.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / NaNoWriMo 2013 Swap on: April 17, 2013 08:34:14 PM
Being as how I was thinking of it tonight... and normally never think of it until mid October... I figure I better get a head start on discussing this one Smiley

For those who don't know: NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which begins Nov. 1 and ends Nov. 30th. So I'm thinking the best timing would be to have signups the end of August, give the month of September for crafting, and mail out October 1st. That way, for those that use October for planning (and saying goodbye to all your friends and family), you will have no worries. Unless, of course, you're crafting away to get a head start on Christmas. Can't help with that, sorry. :|

There are so many ways we could go with this. Craft your inner editor (and send it away) or craft an inner editor for your partner (and send it with some sort of storage device so he/she/it can be locked up for November). Writing themed or inspired goodies. Tools. Snacks. "Writers Block" assistance devices. If your partner knows what he/she will be writing about, you could create things geared towards his/her novel. There are endless possibilities.

So: what would you guys like to see / participate in?
5  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Weaving an Oriental Carpet -- advice? on: March 21, 2013 06:54:03 PM
Hi! I have a small major project planned.... weaving my own hand-knotted oriental carpet. It's "small" because I'm going for prayer rug sized. Anyhow... does anybody know how much wool a person would need to do such a thing? I just found somebody with the right kind of sheep and I can buy roving for $15/lb or raw fleece for $5/lb. I suppose I can always just but "some" then buy more later. She does have 100 head (if I heard my friend correctly).

Details of swap:
Im bringing back an old favorite, the Adults Only Swap, where you are encouraged to be more naughty than nice!  Whether in a relationship or not, and whatever your orientation, we all deserve a little fun and adventure in our lives, and what better time to receive than Valentines Day? Think adult novelties, crocheted penises and mod-podged pasties, burlesque, adult lingerie/under garments. If any of those things make you feel uneasy, this may not be the right swap for you! Please check out the previous rounds listed at the end of this thread before signing up.

What to craft: Due to the short crafting time, I am making this a 4 point swap. This is just a guideline; if you want to do more talk with your partner about it, it's perfectly fine to send more if you want.

***********

This will be a 4 point swap. Refer to the table below:

Large = 3 points
Medium = 2 points
Small = 1 points   

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

************

RULES:
1. REMINDER! This is for adults only, please be honest and upfront about your age and where you live, we don't want anyone or Craftster to get into any sort of trouble for this.
2.  You have to be able to send/receive adult items into/from your state or country.
3.  Please be respectful of other people. If you get a partner with a different orientation, kink, or sexual taste than your own, please don't flame them and tell them they're gross or something like that. People are different.
4.  Please post at least once a week so I (and your partner!) knows you are alive and still participating.
5.  If you are sending in the USA a delivery confirmation is required.
6.  Don't forget to take pics of what you send in case your partner can't take pics, and if you can't take pics send a message to your partner about that so they can make sure to take them.
7.  HAVE FUN!! ....and take that any way you want

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "Adult" swap? on: December 24, 2012 12:44:06 AM
I know there have been some in the past, "adult theme" swaps. Sexy, "naughty" whatever you want to call it. Is anybody else interested in doing this type swap again? I'd love if somebody else could organize it, but I could probably organize it too if nobody else wants to.
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Spun Embroidery Fiber on: July 15, 2012 12:29:09 AM
I've decided this is best used for a rustic embroidery. I did not ply the yarn because the color twist is so delicate, I felt plying would muddy it up. So I just set it as-is. This is kool-aid dyed using grape, cherry, orange, lemonaid, and lime. In an Arts & Sciences craft night we played with kool-aid dye, and I think every one of us dyed our own portion of roving in "multi color" using lines of each color to see how they turned out. Essentially, 5 of us created similar "rainbow" rovings... because we just didn't trust that ours wouldn't turn out so much cooler than everyone else's. LOL.





I'm so happy with how this turned out. And it still smells like kool-aid Smiley 


On another note: if you get used to spinning very fine, is it very hard to get back into spinning "larger/thicker"? This is 35 wraps per inch.
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "Biggest Loser" / "Extreme Makeover Weight loss Edition" etc type swap? on: July 08, 2012 10:14:51 PM
I'm watching Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition, and wondering if anybody would be interested in doing a fitness themed swap. I'm thinking along the line of "inspirational" items... kinda like encouraging one another. Fitness journal/food diary, embroidered fitness towels, head bands. Favorite healthy recipes. Inspirational quote cards.

Really, I think the swap would work just as well for overweight people wanting to get a boost of encouragement, inspiration, etc, as healthy people for... well, the same reasons. I'm sure we all have times we just need that extra bit of help.

Feedback appreciated. Thanks Smiley

And if there's interest, I'll probably start it in a couple weeks. I haven't thought yet on specifics. I am, after all, watching TV... :|
