12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Yet Another TM Patch Swap? on: July 14, 2015 08:06:10 AM
So here's a quick intro of how the ongoing swaps work, it may sound confusing at first, but don't let it scare you Smiley

1. Everyone makes a list of size/color/style preferences as well as themes they like (I would save my wishlist in a little notepad file, so I could copy and paste it whenever needed)
2. The host, most likely, posts her list in the swap thread first (and will also make the last claim to even it out)
3.  Everyone can now fight to claim her lol.....if you are interested and want to make a patch inspired by her themes, then you would make a post below her list, with the first line saying "I claim <Craftster name from list above> for a monkey themed patch"....and you would post your wishlist below that....now it's your turn to be claimed by someone
4.  Someone else would decide they want to make you a TM patch based off your themes, so they would post below you with their claim statement and their own wishlist...then it's their turn to be claimed....and so on

There would be separate threads for claims and discussions (so the claim thread isn't crowded out with chat).

It's basically up to everyone if they can make a claim that month or not, you can join at anytime during the month.  And it stays fair, because you must make a claim to be claimed.

I've never done the Pinterest swaps, but I've heard good things.  Roving, it sounds similar to what you are suggesting, except you are saying once a person is claimed they are "off the list", so other people can be claimed if I read that right...it's  early in the morning for me lol. That's not a bad idea either.

I think a two month run wouldn't be a bad idea either, then maybe a month break....just throwing that out into the pile.
So many suggestions and ideas, we could try out a few of the formats and see which ones are the most liked....I love experimenting!

Oooh!mmi had such a blast with this random swap, I'd love to join this if I get the free time!  I also really liked the flat rate box....sometimes I need a bit of restrictions put on me so I don't go totally broke and crazy  Roll Eyes. Having to fill the box was just a fun extra challenge, excited to see this one again

Oooh yay, let's totally discuss this!  I love the monthly ongoing wishlist swaps (I  need to join again when I get back from vaca).  I'd  love to try out a monthly TM patch swap.  I like the idea of deciding if and when I have time to make a claim...and also possibly making patches that I saw on someone's list but couldn't claim at the time, and wait (with fingers crossed) for their owners list to be put up again.  The last person to claim that month is the first list to be put up the following month.  I'd be up for two patches a claim, 2 weeks to send, and 2 claims outstanding (so 4 patches at a time).  If 2 patches in two weeks seems to be a struggle for a lot of people the first month, then we could either raise the send out time to 3 weeks (or a month even), or reduce the patches to one at a time.    I'm up for whatever Smiley
15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R5 GALLERY on: July 09, 2015 06:36:38 AM
I'm about to end this gallery with a BANG!  I received my patches from craftADDchick and they are fantastic:

First, the cutest little "fat baby" from Dr Who.  I just freaked over this, love the colors, love the stitched details, and love that she used fabric appliqué technique....I've never thought to do that, but now I must Smiley. My daughter went crazy over it too

And next, a lineup of the Fantastic Mr Fox critters.  So cool. She made appliqués for this one too and I just love the vibe of it. The little mini details, awwww!  Really love the color combo on this patch too and the embroidered words are perfect, jealous of those embroidery skillz!

Thanks so much craftADDchick, as usual, I'm a huge fan Smiley

And that should wrap up the gallery. I've had a blast hosting and looking forward to the next round with craftADDchick back in the driver seat Smiley. Thanks for being awesome guys!

Happy 4th, for those of us in the U.S.  Roll Eyes
I have had such a blast checking out all the awesome patches this round!  I should be receiving and posting on Monday, just before I head out on my summer vacation to Texas.  Everyone else should have been rated, please let me know if I have somehow missed something (I definitely need to tweak my record-keeping process next time).  Hope everyone has a crazy fun summer!

milkeway - The unicorn patch looks like a portrait, perfect combos of fabric, love it.  My original homestate is TX, so I love anything with Texas on it!

I'm looooving this gallery!!  So many different techniques, I'm really giddy over the 3D patches, I might have to dip into that action next round. 
On a different note, I've been busy planning a baby shower and summer trip to Texas so I'm less chatty lately, sowwwy  Embarrassed  To this point, I should have everyone's statuses updated, please let me know if I have missed something....the record keeping duties kept me on my tippy-toes.
