7361  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: One Tiny Thing Swap - Signups 10/5-10/10 OR until 12 swappers sign up on: October 05, 2005 03:06:46 PM
Oooh...I didn't even check to see if all the spots were filled Tongue  I hope we make it Smiley  If the organizer decides to stick with 10/20/05 as the send by date, that would me more than fine with me.  That'll give me an extra weekend to tweak the crafted item for my partner!

Okay, I can unfurl my toes and fingers!  Ive received positive feedback from my swap organizer!!!  I just sent a pm to Writer78, requesting permission to participate in this swap.  Goody, goody, gumdrops! Cheesy

Loves2, I think asking for that feedback was perfectly fine; the organizer will certainly understand, and adding feedback takes no time at all.  If your partner has received by now and reported back to your organizer, then all I need is either a "Positive" in your feedback or a PM from your organizer saying you're good to go on a new swap.


My partner did send me a pm to let me know that she has received my package...and she also posted pictures of the stuff I sent her in the swap gallery.  Now, I'm keeping my toes crossed too Smiley

loves2, I would suggest shooting a PM to your organizer (if you haven't already) and asking her about getting feedback quickly (assuming your package has reached your partner).  We've got 5 people so far, and the swap has just been up a few hours, so if this trend continues, it looks like we will fill up fast.  I'd love to get you in if I can!

Writer78, I did send a pm to my swap organizer with a request for feedback when you mentioned that you are limiting the signups to 12 participants Smiley  However, there are 36 participants in the swap I participated in and it would be unfair (and perhaps even unreasonable) to expect her to do me the favor of posting an early feedback Smiley  Hence, when I sent her a pm, I did add that if it's too much of a hassle, to simply disregard my request Smiley  I'm keeping my fingers crossed though!

I really, really, really wanna do this but I'm waiting for feedback on my first swap.  Hopefully, I'll get clearance from my swap organizer before the signups close.  If not, I'm willing to bet a toe (well...not mine...) that there'll be Round 2 Smiley

oh wow thats alot of beautiful things

Yes, it is Smiley  We both decided that we had enough stuff to cram into the gallon zipper bags.  She did a great job stuffing her bag!  Did I mention she's an awesome swapper?

Yep. That's why I commented, with absolutely nothing constructive to say. ^_^

I don't know. What's the procedure? How heavy can something in an envelope be? Will they weigh it and be like "NUH UH I DON'T THINK SO MISSY, NICE TRY"?


I might be wrong, but if you choose not to comment by post, you could also hit the "Notify" button at the bottom page of the topic.  That way, you can still keep track of what's going on Smiley

With regards to the envelope issue, I'm notorious for cramming envelopes!  I believe the guidelines state that first-class mail can weigh up to 13 oz (http://www.usps.com/all/shippingandmailing/letterscards.htm).  I usually tack on extra stamps when I don't know the actual weight of the contents and I write "Thank you Mr. Postman!" on my envelopes if in doubt Wink

There was a package waiting for me this evening when I got home from my SnB meeting.  Can it be?  Oh yes it is!  It's my crafty doodads from ilovepaper!  I was floored by the sheer generosity of my swap partner.  She rocks! 

The items were packaged in a quilted bag and a handmade zipper pouch: 


Here's the stash I received:


It's hard to see all the wonderful items she sent, so here's an inventory of the things that were crammed in the picture:

  • Fabric Really, really cute prints!
  • Confetti boucle yarn Im thinking, a mini coin purse?
  • Zippers Goodgrief.  Did she read my previous post about my fear of zippers?!?
  • Cross Stitch Kit This is too funnyI sent her one too!
  • Stickers Adding this to my collection!
  • Tub of red beads in glue Ive not seen this before.  Ill need ideas!
  • Ribbons (fabric and vinyl) and decorative fringes Purses, purses, purses!
  • An assortment of printed papers and papers with cool graphics Perfect for the greeting card craftalong
  • Notecards I might frame these
  • Simplicity patterns for quilt blocks and pillows Ill get more practice on working with patterns
  • Transfer patterns for embroidery Never tried thisshould be fun!
  • Stick on me hook & loop lettering system Boy do I have plans for this!
  • Applique patches and iron-on woven labels Adding to my stash!
  • Rubber stamp Adding to my stash!
  • Plastic doodads Ill have to think about thistheyre cool.

Whew!  That was a long list.  This swap beats having to go trick-or-treating during Halloween!  There are so many neat things, and I can't decide on a favourite item.  ilovepaper, thanks for making my first swap a terrific one.  You're a star! 

Rakuette, many thanks for organizing and making Round 2 of the Ziploc Swap a reality!  Grin
