1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Portal my Hoopla! on: June 29, 2013 07:30:33 AM
I didn't see anything like this when I searched through the past swaps a bit, but please  let me know if I've missed it!

Seeing as how this game lends to a hoopla quite well...you know...portals being round  Wink I thought this could be really fun. It wouldn't necessarily need to be fully themed on the game, but the requirements for the swap would be:

- Each swapper would need to create at least 2 hoops
- Size requirements would be:
      (2) hoops: 5"-8"
           OR
      (3) hoops: 3"-4"
           OR
      (4) 2" hoops (if you're feeling extra adventurous)
   
- The image for the hoop must span across each of the hoops. For non-Portal players: think bottom half of your body in one, top half in the other. Or a diptych/triptych painting.
- 3-4 week crafting period because it requires multiple hoops.

The questionnaire would include items regarding the swapper's knowledge of the game, if any, favorite themes, and questions along the lines of "What would you like to see split into different pieces?"

Any takers?

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Tiny Monster Hoopla! on: May 04, 2013 04:11:58 PM
I'm wrapping up the One Tiny Monster Swap, and I'm ready to organize again already! Keeping in the OTM theme, I'd like to do a One Tiny Monster Hoopla Swap. The 3-d monsters were a hit, and a few people wanted to join, but weren't ready to make a 3-d creation. I feel like this could be their chance! What'cha think?   Grin

Hoop sizes could be no larger than 4", with a 3-week crafting period...I would start it in the next two weeks or so (after my first organized swap is officially complete and the last swapper has received her angel package Smiley )

Thanks!

RhymeswOrange angeling!

wendiek is in need of an angel! The swap required that each participant crafted one tiny monster (4 and under) for their partner. The monster must be three-dimensional. Once chosen as an angel, you will have 2 weeks time (beginning on the date I PM you to confirm you have been accepted) to craft and send your item. If you are wanting to angel to redeem feedback, keep in mind:
In the case of someone angeling to redeem negative feedback, the swap they choose to send an angel package for MUST be similar to the swap they originally flaked on in terms of size and time commitment. For example, if someone did not complete a swap with multiple send outs, they must do an angel package for EACH send out they missed. If someone did not complete a swap where they should have sent one large and two small items, they must send at least that much to the person they are angeling for.

You will need to be able to ship to the Netherlands.

Some excerpts from wendieks questionnaire:
Three words to describe your ideal monster: cute, fun, colorful
Likes: cookie monster, mike from Monsters Inc., pink, green, blue
Dislikes: skulls, scary
Allergies: none

If you are interested in becoming an angel for this swap, please PM organizer bananasandhair!
Eligible applicants are taken on a first come, first served basis!

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Tiny Monster Swap? on: February 28, 2013 01:53:49 PM
Who doesn't love monsters?

I know that normally these are one tiny "theme" thing swaps, but I was thinking just making a tiny monster (stuffie, if you will), rather than a monster themed item, would be fun too, and not too time consuming for anyone.

The swap would be for one tiny monster. They can be scary, cute, angry, happy, sad, whatever mood seems appropriate for your monster. I was thinking two weeks craft time, which gives plenty of time for crafting a tiny monster, but not so long that you forget about it!

This would be my first time organizing and I am trying to see if anyone would be interested in participating

thanks Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Emerald Entrelac Scarf! on: December 11, 2012 09:20:22 AM
This is my first entrelac project and I am super proud of the way it turned out!  Grin




The edges really are straighter than the picture, but because the pattern is so puffy I couldn't get it to lay flat for me (and I really don't want to block it. lol) I used Red Heart Boutique Collection Yarn. It's a prime example of why you buy the same dye lot, but after I got going I didn't mind the changes, as I thought it brought more interest to the fun pattern.

I modified a blanket pattern to create this beauty, so I just sort of winged it.  Cheesy It was really droopy when you held it up, so I just did a single crochet edging to keep it from stretching.



I love how puffy it looks and it's really warm Smiley
