1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / will you crochet for me? on: June 23, 2005 09:33:56 PM
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)
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Canadians Only Swap 2! on: May 03, 2005 08:04:56 AM
Let's see what people have sent and received!
3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Canadians Only - Swap Two! (SIGN UP CLOSED, first shipment April 30) on: March 18, 2005 11:11:04 AM
Swap name: Canadians Only - Swap Two
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: emerald6
Sign-up date range: March 18th -April 3rd
Date to send item by: First shipment April 30 (Well always ship on the last day of the month)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yep - Canadians only!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? 16+

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: I know the rules!

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: Of course! (NOTE: Some people have expressed interest but wont be members of 1 month for awhile as long as youve been a member for 1 month as of April 30, youre in!)

Details of swap: Tired of No non-US participants allowed? Me too! So, this swap will be for Canadian Crafters ONLY!  The Swap will be officially organized for shipments from April to August and well see where it goes from there. Each month youll be matched up with a new partner and send them an 8 X 11 envelope full of goodies.  You can include supplies or other non-crafted things, but at least 3 things each month must be crafted!  Most months will have a loose theme to inspire us:

April: Your partners favourite things Youll see below that Ive asked for you to list 10 things you like the challenge is to create a package of things your partner would love! You dont have to do all ten, you just gotta fill up that envelope!
May: The wearables month clothes, jewelery, purses, etc.
June: House wares pillow cases, picture frames, pictures, clocks, etc.
July: Retro Flashback month! Send an envelope full of stuff based on your partners favourite decade! Also: This month, try to send a CD!
August: No theme for this month, your choice!

One last thing: I know a lot of us Canadians get paired up together more than once and for this swap Id think it would be great to have brand new partners each time.  If youre interested, Ill keep an updated list of who has signed up and please PM me the people youve already swapped with before.  You dont have to do this only if you want to!

Wait one last final thing If maybe youre only interested in doing one or two of the months, you can just tell me in your PM.   But I encourage you all to try all 5 months!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / another canadians only swap? on: March 13, 2005 01:26:53 PM
the first "Canadians only" swap is nearing its end and i'd love to start another one!  the current one involves swapping a shoe box full of goodies each month with the same person.  it lasted 6 months.  i think canadian only swaps are great because they are cheaper for us canadians to mail and so there is more moolah to spend on craft supplies!

i was thinking that the next one would be similar, but we could send to a different person every month.  i found it hard to make completely different crafts for my partner every month, plus i love getting crafts from all sorts of people!  i was thinking either a 3 month or 6 month commitment - either one, just specify, and i could organize it so it works....

who would be interested?  what do you think of the length? that amount of stuff?

Details of swap:

Everyone has too many pictures and not enough frames!  So, each swapper will make one frame suitable for a 4X6 picture.  I suugest going to IKEA or dollarama and picking up a blank, wooden frame for a dollar and working with that.  Any questions? Note that the frame must have a way to make it stand up on its own!

what about a picture frame swap? 

they're fun to make and since they're flat, they'd also be cheap to mail.... we'd require them to be for 4X6 pictures i'd guess... what does anyone think?

Details of swap:

Everyone loves earrings, right? So, I propose an earring swap.  The way this will work is that each person will make 4 pairs of earrings and then sends them to four different people.  In return, they will receive 4 pairs of earrings!  Im going to try a swap this way because, it may make buying supplies cheaper because you could make the exact same earrings each time and because you also get four very different kinds of earrings!

But hey there, Im gonna need some more information outta you before you can participate! I need your:

Craftster username:
Your real name:
Email address:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?

And you know what else would be cool?  If possible, send me a picture of the type of earrings youre gonna send, or at least describe them for me that way, I can try to match people up with others with similar styles.
