This sounds like an amazing swap idea!  Hopefully, my schedule will permit me to participate in this when it starts Grin
7363  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: another swap courtesy... on: October 01, 2005 03:00:28 PM
I'm in the middle of my first swap and so far, it has been a positive experience.  My swap partner (you know who you are Wink) is awesome and we've communicated via pm quite a few times before the packages were mailed.  She has thanked me and acknowledged the receipt of my stuff and I intend to reciprocate when I receive her package.  I've read horror stories about flaking and the general lack of etiquette on this forum.  For a newbie, it's a tad discouraging to read about these issues, but I'm also eternally optimistic that on the whole, the members of this forum are awesome Grin  I agree that it's important to acknowledge receipt and thank your swap partner, regardless of whether the item(s) you received is to your liking.  Most folks who craft take pride in their work, and at the very least, their efforts need to be recognized.  As for receiving crafted items that 'appear' to have been produced with a distinct lack of effort on the crafter's part, I would rather just assume that the crafter is new to crafting.  There might be a remote chance that the item was deemed as 'perfect' by a newbie crafter and viewed as 'less than perfect' by a seasoned crafter.  Yes, it might be a naive approach, but I'm comfortable with that Smiley
7364  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Trift Shop Yarn on: October 01, 2005 05:05:41 AM
Wow...that's a terrific find!  The yarn you spun looks awesome.  I love the colors...they're serene Smiley  My recent experience with thrift shop yarn was less than fabulous.  I brought home a huge skein of turquoise yarn and was all excited to work with it...only to discover dead creepy crawlies embedded in the yarn (no, you couldn't tell until you opened the package!).  It freaked me out and I threw the whole lot out Sad

OOH!! one of my FAVORITE artists creates whole walls of these amazingly intricute designs! He uses adhesive vinyl, and it looks Fri@@in awesome!

check out his stuff, it is PHENOMINAL, and it will give you an idea of what the adhesive vinyl looks like.

askaboutrpickles, I just checked out the link you posted.  You're right on...his work is phenomenal!  I am inspired to do something about my blank walls Smiley

You're right... it was probably just model making for other things, but I was hoping it had a name so I could find out more about it...

The origamic architecture is just AMAZING though!  ...here's a quick overview if anyone else is interested in what it is:

Yeah, it is pretty amazing.  Some of them get rather complicated to do, but the end result is worth the time and effort  Smiley

This is really ghetto but you could use a ziplock freezer bag to pipe whip cream. Just cut a small part of the corner off. Then you don't have to buy those expensive cake decorating bags and tips!

I don't think that's ghetto!  Anything that cuts down on time spent doing dishes works for me!  I have a nice set of piping tips and I use them with ziploc bags  Grin

I would love to participate in this swap but I'm in the process of finishing my first swap Sad  Hopefully, I'll still be able to signup for this when I receive feedback from the organizer of my first swap.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Jess, I stopped by Cyrus during my lunch break this afternoon.  Didn't have much time to look around, but I did tell your hubby to tell you I said hi Smiley
