I've had my projects decided on for a few days now, but haven't had time to start anything yet. I'm anxious to get started though!

Im a little confused, you craft your commonality, but you don't need to find your commonality?

Yes, you find your commonality, and when you post in the gallery, you share what commonalities were the focus of the items you received. This is why the q'naire is a bit more involved than the norm, and of course, lots of communication between partners is strongly encouraged. The idea is to actually get to know a little about our fellow craftsters, especially outside of our mutual crafting hobbies (if possible- in the past, we've had partners who've had very little in common but their love of crafting, and that's ok too. At least there's always a fallback.  Grin). Check out the past galleries for some ideas of how this has worked in the past.  Smiley

I claim curiousfae for artist's choice


Hi, I'm Deanna from Sunny AZ!  I'm a mom of 4 but most are grown. My little "surprise" baby is still in elementary school though, and he loves to browse my collection, so please keep it family friendly! And I like creepy/scary, but for his sake please don't get too over the top.

Some themes I'd love to see:

Tell me a story (depict an experience you had and tell me about it. I'll share your story in the gallery when I post)
It's not easy being green
Victorian Style
There's a skull in there somewhere
Snake oil label inspired
Unlikely classified ads
Your favorite.... (color, food, book, movie- whatever!)
Animals wearing costumes
Alien landscape
Out dated inventions
Fairy Tales (esp. dark or twisted)
Unsolved Mysteries
Artist's choice

Thank you for claiming me!

Details of swap:

Your mission will be to find something you have in common with your partner and craft to that. Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books.  Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids.  Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run.  Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.  

This swap is for 2 small items and 1 medium item -OR- 2 mediums (whichever works best for whatever inspiration strikes you) that apply to your commonality.  Give your partner as much information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing! You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to "meet" new people and make some new crafty friends. Please post in the thread at least once per week, and when you post your pics, make sure to tell us what you and your partner had in common!

-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
