1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Half-a-Hoopla Swap (SIGNUP CLOSED; 2ND ROUND MAIL BY 9/12) on: September 14, 2014 10:21:01 PM
Hey everybody - the gallery is up: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435684.0

Also, it looks like only one person mailed last week (way to go Juliel85) so the rest of us slackers are going to have to play catch-up. Go go ganbatte everybody! Smiley Don't forget a tracking number.

Post your collaborative creations here! I can't wait to see.

Please try to set up your post as a Before (what you sent in Phase 1) and After (what you got in Phase 2). If necessary, see if you can coordinate with your partner to get the pics in one place so everyone can see the evolution of the hoop. Smiley

Here's the home stretch everyone! I've gotten a couple of messages already that people may be late sending, and I admit that I may be late myself, lol (though hope is not lost). I'll be getting shipping statuses for both phases squared away on the opening post by tomorrow.

Don't forget that the deadline to mail the 2nd round is "18 days from the date your partner sent, if they were late." So if your partner was late out of the gate you get a couple of days' grace. Smiley

Hey guys, sorry I was out of touch over the long weekend. I will be updating everyone's sent/received status this evening.

About a gallery, the plan is to take before-and-after pictures but post them all at once when the hoop is finished. Mostly because it felt weird to me to put up a picture of an unfinished work-in-progress, lol. As soon as I get word that the first Round 2 package has been sent I'll make a gallery for us. Smiley

I'm getting really excited about these. Smiley Don't forget to take a pic of your base before you send!

I am worried my first half won't be enough. It's a very simple concept that  I'm hoping she will feel is very open to interpretation. I don't want to say too much because it's still a swap and still fun to get surprises, but I just hope it's enough. I'm drawing it out now. ETA: Maybe I will send a shot to our lovely organizer before I send to make sure it is up to par.

Just remember what it says in the description of this swap:
"There is no point value for this swap. The goal is that when you finish your partner's base, you will match or exceed their level of effort."

If you send a very simple base, expect a very simple finished product. Smiley Of course, a simple hoop can also be beautiful! You may want to ask your partner, since if their hoop is very detailed you may end up with lopsided results.

Not sure exactly who I'm teasing in this scenario, admittedly. Smiley

I worked on mine during a long car trip today - it turns out my natural difficulties with embroidery are only exacerbated by bumps, turns, and changing light, lol. But overall I'm pretty pleased with how it looks so far. Smiley

Luvebuggy99, sorry it came apart in the mail! The mystery bits are magnets and decorative copper pieces. The two magnets hook together so that one connects to the shrine and the other can connect to a fridge. Or, since the magnet shape naturally leaves a hole, you can also use it to hang on the wall.



From the front, you just see the spiky part of the magnet. Then the two copper pieces make a cute little arch.



Also, I don't know if you noticed, but the two little fish rotate around so you can put them vertically to make the sign for pisces! Smiley

I think it would be cool to take pictures of your base before you send, but post it all at once when you get the completed version back as a sort of before-and-after. That way you don't accidentally influence your partner's creativity by explaining what you expect them to do. Smiley

Does that sound okay to everybody?
