Here are pix of the "wreck this journal" I got from kartiana...

along with her note saying she was gonna tell me not to use scissors, you can see that the journal is duct taped shut!

here's a better pic of the duct taped edges on 3 sides!

well I used a craft knife not a scissors LOL

the first prompt inside at the top of the inside front cover said bend, so I did...

pic of the front cover where I bent it twice.

I did a couple other parts of pages (like the one that when I open to that page I have to write down the time I went there; I LOL every time I go there!)

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks again Kartiana....just you wait! I'll start building yours and get it off to ya before the new year!

Details of swap:
This is a Pinterest swap, meaning that your fellow Craftsters will claim you for something you have pinned on your Pinterest site.  If you don't have a Pinterest but are interested, go here www.pinterest.com to request one.  We recommend having at least 50 pins before you start a Pinterest Swap (so that others can get an idea of your likes & style wants)

(strikethrough doesn't apply to this round, since it's been a year since last round)
If you are late in a previous Pinterest swap, please do not sign up until you send. You will not be accepted. If you still have outstanding claims in any previous round, however, you can still join as long as you are not already late in sending. Also, these swaps are totally independent of each other so if you have maxed out your unreceived but not late claims in last month's swap, you can still make that number this month. Also, the swap organizer reserves the right to refuse participation to those C-sters that she does not feel can meet the requirements or that do not jive well with the group.

Also please note that this swap requires that you communicate with your partner and the organizer (+ co-organizer).  Please send a PM (including the month of the swap) when you claim, when you send, and when you receive.  People who consistently fail to communicate will be asked to take a break from the Pinterest swap and maybe try again in two months.
** for the September 2015 round, PLEASE be sure to include both rscowtown & kayrun on all communication

Please do not post in this thread until you have been approved by the organizer. This thread is for lists only. Only post once. If you need to change/add something, simply "Modify" your post.

The discussion/gallery thread is located here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439845.0

FAQ: Please READ
How does this swap work?
You may choose from anyone's Pinterest board once they have posted a link and bio in this thread.  This is not a chain list swap; its more of a free for all swap.  However, when possible it is nice to claim from those who haven't been claimed or who have claimed more than they have been claimed for. You have two weeks from the date you claim to send your item on its way to the lucky recipient.  Remember to PM the organizer ( & co-organizer) and the recipient when you claim, send, and receive.
Please include the swap name and month in your subject line! Please make sure to include who you are claiming, sending to, or receiving from. You may have up to 2 outstanding (not received) claims. If you are FOC you may have up to 3 outstanding claims.  Everyone MUST make at least one claim.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two
You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

When Claiming: When you PM the organizer (and person you are claiming) for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim. 
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

What should my bio and link look like?
Once you have been approved, you may post in the list thread.  There is no one way to do this but please be sure your bio includes the following:
         - your location and a brief bio (include allergies in red please)
         - your Pinterest link
         - list of boards that are to be used for this swap, or simply say something like "all my boards are game"
         - whether you are okay with supply claims
if you'd like to see a sample, please check a previous round:

What do I need to send?
This swap is for either one medium or 2-3 small items for each claim.  A medium item is one that takes 2 or more hours, $10 - $30, some examples are a single necklace or bracelet or a scarf.  A small item is one that takes 2 or less hours, $10 or less, some examples are earrings/wallets/pouches/bookmarks.

How do the organizers ensure that claims are even?
We don't. But we do try.  One way is that we highlight your name when you have claimed more times than you have been claimed.  We ask that people claim from those that haven't been claimed yet or who have claimed more often than they have been claimed, but there is no guarantee that if you send 5 times that you will receive 5 items.  In fact, theoretically it is quite possible to not get claimed at all.  If this is a major concern for you and you know you would miserable if things were not always even, this may not be the swap for you.  However, I will say that for the most part this is not a big problem in this swap so far.

How closely does the item I send need to resemble the item pinned?
It depends on who you are claiming.  Read the bios carefully.  Read the pins carefully.  Some of us pin items for inspiration and are fine with items that are simply inspired by our pins. Others would like the item to look as close to the pin as possible.

What happens if I am flaked on?
If you are flaked on, you will only receive an angel for as many packages as you have sent.  If you were claimed for 3 packages and you sent 2 packages and one package was flaked on - you will not receive a swap angel.

What do I do if I'm not being claimed?
If you are not being claimed, it might be time to consider your pins.  Do you have enough variety?  Are there enough small and medium items?  Do you have items pinned that require a variety of crafty mediums (ex: knitting, crocheting, sewing, beading, embroidery, etc...)?  Are your pins realistically craftable?  You should shoot for at least 20-30 pins (this includes only those pins you want to be claimed); maybe more if most of your items are on the large side or primarily in one crafty medium.  We have some talented folks on here... but not everyone can do all crafts.  If you find you aren't being claimed...try adding more pins. Annchen posted a great reply about this in the December swap that I highly encourage reading if you are not being claimed.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer + co-organizer:

Name of swap:  September 2015 Ongoing Pinterest Swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Do you understand that a tracking # (within US) or copy of your postal

Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)
Your Pinterest link:  
Have you posted in the discussion thread?  (required in order to join swap)  YES/NO


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.
