Reserved for Notes from the Organizer

5/3  One more week of sign-ups.  Send me a PM by the end of the day this Friday to participate.  Plenty of space available.  And keep posting in the thread your want's and de-stashing finds.

5/6 Sign-ups thru the end of Friday (tomorrow) 5/7.  Welcome to all of our newbie swappers in this round.  So happy to have you dip your toes into the Craftster Swap pool.   I hope to post partners over the weekend and send out PM's as time allows.  

5/6 We have a swapper who is sensitive to allergens.  I hope that these supplies are clean  but if you are sending items from a heavy smoker or multiple pet household there might be a risk of irritating allergens.  Please PM me if you will be sending supplies from a smoker or pet household so I can not pair you with individuals who have allergies.  Thank you.

5/7 Thanks everyone for sharing with me if you have a smoker or pet household so I can avoid pairing you up with a person with allergies.  Thanks again for accommodating.

Sign-ups END TODAY, well thru the end of the day TODAY.  I'll be working on partners over the weekend.  So you should see a list first and then slowly see a PM with address information being sent out.

5/8  Closed the sign-ups this morning will work on partnering you up.   Thanks for joining.

Remember the DC#
Please PM oops creations, gkswife and your partner when you send, please include the DC#.  

 Don't forget to take photos for the gallery. I know once you cram everything in there you don't want to dump it out just to take photos, so I understand if you forget--- just make sure your partner take photos when they receive their goodies.  This Gallery is also a great place to post pictures of completed projects that used supplies you may receive.  

Happy Swapping.


SEND/RECEIVE/FEEDBACK: How it works in this swap
I will mark-- in the gallery thread --when people have sent, when their partners have received and when they have received.  When those three conditions have been met, I will update feedback.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Flat Rate Fill-a-Box: New Years 2010 Edition on: December 29, 2009 05:43:16 PM
Calling all Fill-A-Box Swappers! I'm organizing another round of the Flat Rate Fill-a-Box (New Years 2010 Edition)

I sort of "jumped the gun" and posted the sign up before posting in the new topics area.  Uh-oh.  I was just so excited about getting the ball rolling on cleaning my craft closets.  I hope you forgive the faux pas and will consider joining me. 

Check it out!   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332314.0   

We will be swapping a medium flat rate box full of gently used supplies.  Clean out your craft areas and get some "new-to-you" craft supplies in return.  Great for stash busting!

>>> NOTES from the ORGANIZER <<<<
12/30-- while it is NOT posted on the US Postal Service Website, the web community reports that the price of Priority Mail services will increase on January 4th, 2010.   I will inform you as soon as I find out the new price, I can't imagine that it will be more than a few cents increase.  And remember it is cheaper to print your postage online.  Thanks.

1/1-- Happy New Year.  Please feel free to post wants/ gives in this thread.  I'll do my best to pair up people after signups end according to wishes in the thread and your responses in the survey.

1/2-- This will be a round robin style swap where you send to one person and receive from a different person.

1/5-- Happy to see that people are posting their wants and what they are sending in the thread. Remembers sign-ups go thru the end of the day THIS Friday.  And I'll spend Saturday pairing up people. Thanks to gkswife who volunteered to be co-organizer.  She'll be assisting in sending out partner info and feedback.  sign-ups still get sent just to Oops Creations though.  Thanks!

1/7-- Sign-ups end Friday evening.  PLEASE NOTE the USPS raised their prices.  
 USPS Supplied Medium Box: 13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8" or 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" $10.70 (plus .70 for Delivery Confirmation when purchased at the post office. Only $10.20 when purchased online (free DC#).  I had mentioned this in sign-ups but wasn't sure on the price-- if you are unable to participate anymore because of the price PM me immediately and Ill remove you.


1/8-- It's Friday! and Sign-ups close today.

I'm going to say officially sign-ups close at 8:00 pm EST this evening so I can get started on partnering up people.   You will receive and PM from me or the co-organizer (gkswife) on Saturday mid-day (I hope!) with your partner info. You'' then have about 10 days to pack your boxes up and send them out.   Today is also the last chance for shout-outs for specific wishes in the thread today. Make your voice known-- I'll try to pair up people according to their survey AND the conversations in the thread.

----Packing Tips-----

Putting soft items in ziploc bags and then smooshing the air out of them (and then sealing) works well to cram things into boxes.  Some people even use spacebags/ foodsaver or other Vacuum-sealed bags.

Some Post Office staff frown at the over-stuffed, bowing out at the sides, held together with tape boxes when you try to take them in. Some persnickety post offices call this "altered" and won't send it. Don't pay more than the cost of the flat-rate service.  Do not pay by weight.  If they won't let you send a overpacked box, smile and then take some stuff out.  
---------------------

1/9 Sign-ups Closed.  
I'll work on partners this morning.  I'll try to do my best to pair up people, matching gives with wants, but it's not a perfect world and not everyone is giving out the specific craft item your searching for.  The old adage rings true in this swap, "one crafter's surplus supplies is another crafters great new idea."  And on the flip side, just because your partner wants a specific item, do NOT go out an buy it-- fill the box from your own surplus.  Most of all happy swapping!!!!!!


1/9  Partners posted  Send out by 1/19/10. Remember DC, please PM oops creations, gkswife and your partner when you send, please include the DC#.   Don't forget to take photos for the gallery. I know once you cram everything in there you don't want to dump it out just to take photos, so I understand if you forget--- just make sure your partner take photos when they receive their goodies.  Gallery is also a great place to post pictures of completed projects that used supplies you may receive.  Happy Swapping.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / "Cat Got Your Tongue": Quirky Birdhouse on: November 22, 2009 03:00:34 PM


Just finished a project that had been sitting on my "to-do" pile for months, if not years. And just in time fore the holidays.

I started with a readymade birdhouse from Micheal's and free-hand drew the open mouthed cat on the wood.

Here's my original sketch you can use as a template/ guide


Then I painted the design with craft paint, added highlights/lowlights, outlined some important details with sharpies and then applied two coats of clear coat lacquer.  Note of warning, the sharpie markers bled a little when I spray the clear coat.

Here's the finished project from all sides.  Thanks for looking, hope I've inspired someone.

10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Spring Cleaning-Fill a Box Supply Swap Rd7 Signup Closed Send by 4/8 on: March 11, 2008 06:32:48 AM
Time for some Spring Cleaning.... The perfect time to clean those craft closets. I'm happy to organize another Fill A Box Swap to help motivate you.

Swap name: Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 7 (aka: Flat Rate Box Swap)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Oops Creations
Co-Organizer: RondaS
Sign-up date range: Sign-ups CLOSED
Date to send item by: 4/8

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES.  This is a Fill a "US Postal Service Flat Rate Box" Swap so unfortunately it is limited to individuals in the U.S.  Sorry.

Age Restrictions: Over 13, as stipulated in new swapping rules

As a reminder each participant must meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month:
- Has posted at least 15 times:
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time:
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps:
- Does not have any negative feedback:
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old:


Details of swap:

Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 7  **** Post office just issued a new size box that is more expensive-- ONLY use the $8.95 rectangle or square box NOT the $12.95 box************

Its that time of the year again, clean out those overflowing baskets, boxes and craft closets.  Start the new season with fresh supplies and fresh ideas.

You'll fill a FLAT-RATE US Postal Service box with as much as you can jam in and send it to your partner (Don't forget the Delivery Confirmation).

Gently Used supplies are fine, if not encouraged-- take this opportunity to do a little craft purging, the result is a clean(er) craft closet and some fresh ideas/supplies for crafting. Because of the special type of box (only $8.95 plus delivery confirmation) this is limited to US participants only. Sorry

In previous rounds I have allowed people to send a SECOND BOX.  Please indicate if you would like to send a second box.  You will be paired up with another person and you will also receive a second box.  YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED to send a Second Box to participate in this swap.

SIGN-UPS are CLOSED  SEND BY 4/8

Okay folks here's the list-- special thanks to RondaS for sending out PMs--- lets get swapping.  I hope everyone likes their partners-- many of you had made specific shout outs for certain items so I did my best to match you with someone that could provide that, likewise if you were sending fabric i tried to pair you with a person that sews.  Now of course nothing is perfect so don't feel like you need to meet everyone of your partners requests-- just because they only want something for an obscure craft doesn't mean you need to provide it-- just do your best and HAVE FUN.

I'm now switching over into the gallery for send/receive tracking.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235290.0
