151  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Fundraiser ideas for Valentines? on: January 13, 2008 07:18:03 AM
I'm the Advisor for my college's Student Government and we need to do a fundraiser for Valentines.  We were thinking of making little boxes with all kinds of things in them - but after pricing things, it got a bit expensive.  Any ideas on making it less expensive but still cute?  Can't have any homemade candy, etc in them.

153  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Travelers Swap on: January 06, 2008 07:16:31 PM
I'm going to be doing some traveling in Feb and March and who knows when else.  I was wondering if anyone else would like a swap for stuff you can take to do on the plane/bus/train.

  Things like easy craft kits, word searches, books to read, neck pillows, whatever you think would be useful to you.  If there's interest, I'll start the swap next week, we'll do a short craft time and then sendout.

Gavagai was not only flaked on by her original sender, but also by her angel!  We really need to get her an angel quickly, she's been waiting a looonnnnggg time. Sad

Here's her wishlist:

Lightscribe cds/dvds for me to lightscribe on. Would love different colours! Can't get them here. 

I am especially looking for crafting supplies of different kinds, among others these (that I can't get or have had trouble finding here)...

Silver or silver plated/gold plated wire, thinner than 0.4 mm (maybe someone can translate this into American standard?)

Joints for making dolls/teddybears, to fasten arms and legs to make them movable (preferably not too big)

Flat metal things with a loop (preferably silver/gold or silver/gold plated) to fasten on the back of for example a marble to make it into a pendant. Something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=49-455-3  Ideally either 10mm or 20mm square, but also interested in other sizes.

book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns

Chunky fun yarn (something that looks a bit different in one way or another).

Strange colour (other than white or transparent) shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind); I would really prefer the "shrinky dink" brand!

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry).

Gold plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry.

Silver plated finger rings with a large plate (1.5-2 cm?) with sides (will try to find a link to make it less confusing) for crafting jewelry.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass thingies, especially ones with holes in them:
Other glass shapes on the same site are also as interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
(I already have enough of the "normal" round transparent ones (that you can buy in flower shops (at least here) though.)

Snap buttons of good quality, preferably bigger and/or ones that you "punch" on (rather than sew or fold those little metal clips thingies) (plastic and/or metal)

Magnetic snaps for making bags.

Handles for making bags

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". I only have the last issue (september-october 2007) so far. Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send.

Craft books/magazines in general with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German or with easy-to-follow pictures (well, Swedish is good as well :-))

And of course anything from my evergrowing wist.

156  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fill A Purse Swap3? on: December 27, 2007 07:27:28 PM
Is anyone interested in another Fill A Purse Swap?  We've run a couple of them.  The object is to make a purse to your partners liking - or embellish, depending on what you want - and then fill it with a variety of handmade and purchased items.

Here's links to the previous galleries - they were great fun!

Round 1:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=105700.new

Round 2:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178496.msg1851031#msg1851031

If there's interest, I would do signups beginning January till mid-January with a sendout late February.
157  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Winter Coat on: November 29, 2007 08:57:55 AM
So yesterday my friend Kate walked in and had on this fabulous coat.  I asked where she got it and she told me that she made it.  She has yet to get an account on Craftster, but I told her I wanted to post it and perhaps this will convince her to get an account. Smiley

The entire coat (with Kate ofcourse):

A closeup of the buttons - she made these herself too.  She's amazing!
