Okay, that should definitely account for everyone.  There is a 3-some at the end as we had an odd number - 55!  I'm hoping that you all will be pleasantly surprised by finding you have something in common with your partner.  I'll be sending the info out by PM's later today.


204  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Stocking Swap 2? on: October 03, 2006 08:14:44 AM
Would anyone be interested in a Christmas Stocking Swap 2?  I see that there was one last year, but I hadn't been here long enough to join in the fun. 

Here's a link to the gallery from last year: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65995.0

The idea is to make a stocking between 12-16 inches high (heel to cuff) and to fill it.  I would say that you would need to craft the stocking and 50% of the stuff that you fill it with.  You could purchase the other 50% of the filling stuff. 

I'm wondering if there should be a set amount to spend on filling or if partners should be allowed to discuss and decide amongst themselves.

Any ideas?  Any interest?  I was thinking signups from October 16 - 29 with sendouts November 20th.  That would be 3 weeks of crafting and even overseas shippers should be okay by Christmas.
205  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Mommy & Me Swap Gallery on: October 01, 2006 06:46:39 PM
Ok, we have had sendouts, one early, so there should be crafts posted soon!  Original post here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=116859.0

I can't wait to see what the kiddies made!! Well, the mommies too! Grin

Okay, once again, here is the breakdown:

Please everyone remember, 5 days after sendouts, you will receive a negative until your package is sent and received and it will be noted in feedback.  So all packages need to be sent and I need to know about it by Wednesday at the latest, please.

Mommy & Me is for Craftster Mommies to get time to craft with their children for another Craftster Mommy and her children.  The children must be involved in the crafting (unless they are way too little).  You'll be sending 1 large and 2-3 small items or 2 medium and 2-3 small items.  You can always send extras as long as you communicate with your partner and agree upon the amount.  Mommies are free to make one small craft all by themselves for the other Mommy, but the majority of the crafts should be for the children.  Yes, if you have a baby that can't craft, you can still join.  I'll try to pair up baby moms so it works out well for you!

SidekickFancy needs an angel for the Harry Potter Favorite Character Swap.  This will finish out this swap.


Her fave characters are Harry Potter and Dumbledore and here are some of the ideas she gave me (no one has to stick to this, she'd be pleased with anything at all)

A doll, a bag, gryffindor wrist/arm warmers, a wand, a shirt, any kind of jewelry


Thanks in advance!

Edited to add:  Inara volunteered to be the swap angel.  Thanks Inara!!
208  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / I've got tons of WorkBasket magazines 50's-80's! on: July 10, 2006 02:18:36 PM
My MIL just gave me a huge bag full of WorkBasket magazines.  They are from her and her mom.  I have a few from the 50's, a lot from the 60's, tons from the 70's and a lot from the 80's.  If anyone would be interested in patterns from them - let  me know!

There's a lot of tatting, crochet, knitting, misc.

I know there's been a big surge of crochet animals - I have loads of patterns for those.

For me the big draw was all the iron on patterns! Lots of cute animals, housewives, oriental girls....cute, cute, cute!  The best thing is that I can just copy them and never actually use the pattern itself.

My MIl just asked that I not get rid of them until she's gone! Smiley  Like I would!
