5761  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 10 gallery! on: May 21, 2006 05:52:01 AM
I received the most amazing swap journal from onthinice yesterday!

 It's beautiful and perfect for me.  Karen PM'd and asked if I had a particular theme I was looking for and I told her to make whatever she wanted.  She took the time to post-stalk me and figure out what I'd like and here's what I got:

The letter explained that the journal is made of Welsh Green Dragon hide embossed with the Slytherin house crest.LOL



The front of the journal - the little tin start says "Anti Spew" and it closes with rawhide lacing.


The embossed house crest


The journal pages

Yes, I'm in my 30's but I love Harry Potter so this was perfect!  What a great job, onthinice!!!  The funny part was that I had already seen her journals and thought that they were great!

Right, you don't need a mod's approval, but you do need to follow their directions in the link I gave you exactly.  You'll do fine!

I bet that everyone is just getting so excited about this whole thing that the tension is getting to them! I know I'll be happy with whoever I get, and I've been making lists of ideas for crafts for characters I'm less fond of or familiar with. I guess I'll have to add Blaise to that list now, lol!

I'm sure that's exactly what is happening.  I think that your list is a great idea!!  Thanks for the input, I think I'll start my own list now.  You never know, as you search out ideas, you may become more fond of a character!

shuffar - maybe it's just the end of the school year and your partner is super busy?  Did she send you DC#?  It doesn't look like she's been on in about a week. 

If you do need an angel, I'll volunteer to send something to your friend.  I'll wait for miss_katonic to make the call.

Okay, I know that everyone has their own ideas of how to choose partners, but I really have to ask that no one else PM with their choices or ideas.  I had already decided on the criteria for partners before I started this swap.  Hopefully you will all be pleased and surprised with your partner....if not, just remember that all swaps are done this way and you can choose to run one and do it your way another time.

I'm not trying to be grouchy, but really, I've had several PM's now and it's getting silly.  I don't see or hear about this happening in other swaps.  Everyone has been so nice and friendly in the posting, let's try to keep that going!

Thanks for understanding!!

Seriously, I thought you were joking!LOL 

Blaise is the Slytherin that Jk never really said much about and so it wasn't clear if Blaise was female or male and with that unusual name...people have had a field day with Blaise in fanfiction.  I believe that she said she couldn't believe that Blaise of all people became so popular.  I think it's because she gave him (turns out it IS a him) such an unusual name and then never said anything else about him!

Peppermom - you can certainly do personal swaps.  Just choose someone and ask them.  You won't get positive feedback for it, but you can do it.  There's even a monthly gallery in the Swap Gallery section to show off your goodies.

hardcore - here's everything you need to know about organising a swap:  http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html

I'm organising two right now and it's not hard, you just have to be....organised!LOL  If you have any questions, I can try to help if you decide to do this.  I'm doing signups for two weeks and then giving three weeks to craft.

Hmmm, do we have a volunteer to organise?LOL  The person that suggested the idea isn't eligible yet.
