1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Intimate swap?/ Grab bag-ish swap on: July 06, 2005 08:10:05 PM
oooh, i like this idea! here's my idea for how to organize it:

- by area - as mentioned, shipping can get pricey, especially over the borders.  so, perhaps the organizer sets up, say one group for each corner of the country, one for canada, or other countries, and include somewhere for people who dont have a problem shipping anywhere.  sign up would be on a first come, first serve basis, and extra groups could be made up as needed.   think that there would be an ititial organizer of this, and then a member of each foursome would take over as sort of deputy organizer.  ie, someone would become organizer of 'the intimate swap: southern states'

does that make sense? i

well..my favourites would be the doily ones, perhaps in black, or the chandelier ones. they're both pretty high on the awesome meter.

i posted this in the craftster classifieds but haven't had any luck yet, so i thought i'd try here!

sooo... i absolutely ADORE these little crochetted earrings found here:

http://www.cutxpaste.com/catalog/index.php?manufacturers_id=203

but i don't love the $36US plus shipping price tag. i have no idea how much time or effort is required to make a few of the little pieces but i'd love to trade for them, or pay, or a combination of both.  i love to make jewelery and in past trades, i've had people find me pictures of jewelery they like and i've recreated them...or whatever works for you!

thanks in advance to whoever helps me out here!

(please PM me or email me at austeremeraldberry@hotmail.com)

soooo blueblythe is like, the greatest swap partner EVER!!!!!! she totally spoiled me!!  we were partnered for two swaps (another was a "wearables" swap) so some stuff kinda crossed over, but i'll list it all here too:

i got:

- a giant sock monkey (its huge!) dressed up rockabillyesque
- flamigoes for my lawn ( i always wanted some of those!)
- two pot holders embroidered beautifully with swallows
- a tea towel embroidered with cherries and one printed with differnt drinks on it
- a neato leather snap pouch with a star on it
- a flippin sweet tee with a stencil on it
-  a box with a star on it... and inside the box was....
 - an embroidered swallow pin!
- 3 little buttons, 2 with swallows and 1 witha pin up girl
 - a shrinky dink necklace with a swallow on it

and my FAVOURITE: a blue corduroy purse with an embroidered pink swallow on it.  this rules.  i freaking love it!!

blueblythe, you rule!!!  you made my day if not my week and month too!!!!!!!!  i dont have a camera but if you do, you should post any pictures you have.... thanks again so so so much!!!!!

i recieved my package from artery a few days ago (but i hadnt had time to post yet)!! 

my main statements were that i support gay marriage and homosexuality in general...

artery sent such a great package!!! she sent me a cool long purse (i needed a new one!) and a patch both with a pink triangle on them, (the symbol for gay and lesbians rights in canada) a scarf (hot pink - my favourite colour!), a coffee mug with a clear outer so i can fill it in with a picture or something and a pound of coffee that smells sooo good!

she also sent me a cute pair of earrings and a pad of sticky notes shaped like an 'E' ( never seen that before - neato!) plus the novel, "The Feminine Mystique".  perfect timing as im looking for something new to read!

i hope i didnt forget anything!

thanks so much artery!  everything was GREAT!!  i dont have a digiital camera but if you do please post pics if you have them!
