1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Stocking Swap Round 10 on: July 12, 2014 03:57:39 PM
Is anyone interested in participating this year?  I put it out early so that we have loads of time to finalize details! 

Here's the details so far:  Signups Sept. 8-28; Sendouts on Dec. 1st.
We make/decorate a 12" - 16" stocking to our partners tastes. Fill it with 50% crafted items (or more) and 50% purchased items (or less). There will be a weekly checkin via question posted in the swap thread - every Friday, unless life gets in the way. 

                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Random Swap Round 5 on: February 28, 2014 01:01:25 PM
Is anyone interested in a Random Swap?  In this swap, you get a partner based on what you can make, what you want, location and allergies. 

We'll make whatever we wanted (that goes along with our partners taste) and fill a medium size fixed rate box.  It's amazing how much you can fit in there! It's so much fun!

I'm thinking of doing signups March 2nd - 15, 2014; with sendouts on May 17, 2014.  Any takers?

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Laughter is the Best Medicine Swap? on: February 18, 2014 06:02:12 PM
It's that time of year when for some of us, the winter blahs set in.  We all need a good laugh.  I'm thinking a 2 week signup, 4 weeks to craft, crafting 2 medium items based on something off your partners list that makes her/him laugh.

It might be things that you aren't amused by, but that's ok.  A sense of humor is very individual!  You could find something that really tickles your funny bone!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Featured Projects: Valentines for your Special Someone on: February 07, 2014 11:43:29 AM
So, if you're Special Someone is like mine, you never have any idea of what to do for them for Valentine's Day.  In fact, they often say 'I don't need anything'.  Geez, that was helpful!  So here are some kickass gifts to make for them!

These scratch tickets by hanshotfirst are awesome!  You could put nice things like 'a backrub', or 'You sleep in and I'll start your car on a cold day' or even be sassy with them!  Who doesn't like scratch tickets?!


These adorable fortune cookies by member DEmiurgic are customizable!  Just imagine what you could put in them! 'Turn to page 394', 'Love makes you do the wacky', 'As you wish' or whatever hits the spot for your Special Someone.

Member mimiw stitched up this gorgeous tree for her hubby.  What a sweet way to say your Special Someone still makes your heart beat faster!
