211  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Harry Potter Swap - Choices on: May 05, 2006 06:31:30 AM
Okay, here's what I'd like to do:  I'm going to list the kinds of HP swaps that we brought up in the previous thread and I'd like you to pick your favorites.  Pick as many as you like, just put them in order of your first choice to last choice. 

You can PM me your choices or just post right here in the thread!  We'll give it two weeks, so on May 19th, we'll close the voting and then I'll post which swap we'll start with.  We should be able to do one a month or maybe one every two months - to give us plenty of sign up and crafting time.  Anyhow, it should keep us all happy about HP for the rest of the year!

Here's what we have so far:  (if you have any additions, just let me know through PM please)

1.  Favorite Character Swap
2.  Favorite House Swap
3.  Favorite Book/Movie Swap
4.  Favorite 'Ship Swap
5.  Favorite Fanfiction Swap
6.  HP Tee's/Hoodies Swap
7.  Craft a Wand Swap
8.  HP Creatures Swap

Let the voting begin!!

We've had two additions to the swap choices!!  Here they are:

9.  Diagon Alley swap. you could include things from gringgotts, F & G's joke shop, the two pubs, the uniform, book, and "animal companion" shops!

10. Animal Friends swap? like stuff to do with hedwig, scabbers, Pig, Crookshanks, Buckbeak, fang?

One more item (I swear!):  please read this thread: http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html  if you are new to swapping.  It lets you know the rules and eligibility.  I believe it is one month on Craftster and 15 posts, but go check it out if you are new please!

212  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Father's Day Swap? on: May 04, 2006 06:56:52 AM
Would anyone be interested in a Father's Day Swap?  Father's Day is June 18th. 

If we did signups for two weeks from this Sunday, that would still give us about 3 weeks to craft. 

There would have to be excellent communication on this one!

My dad is hard to shop for and he likes stuff that I can't/don't know how to make.  What do ya think?
213  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Vampire/Vampyre Swap on: May 04, 2006 06:53:01 AM
I don't know if anyone else would be interested in a Vampire themed swap.

 I've loved Vampires/Vampyres since I was a little girl!  My hubby always says, "If a Vampire came knocking at the door, you'd invite him in!"LOL

We could make anything and everything to do with Vampires - totes, shirts, jewelry, you name it.  It could be for us or a loved one.

anyone interested?

214  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Saw something "new" at craft store this weekend on: April 25, 2006 08:36:56 AM
My friend and I went to a craft store this weekend and they were really pushing a class to make this "new" thing - shrines!!!!!LOL  My friend thought they were totally cool.  I told her that she didn't need a class, I would show her how to do it.  The ones they had on display were very simple ones, nothing like I've seen on here at all.

It was just amusing for me to see something at a store that Craftsters have been doing for months and months!

215  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Feedback Question on: April 19, 2006 06:16:38 AM
Okay, I hope this isn't a dumb question:

I joined my first swap and sent out just over 6 weeks ago.  I've had very little contact with my partner, who is also the organiser.  I see that she has flaked on people before and now has a negative.  So, I asked another swap organiser if I could join in her swap and she asked for my postal receipt.  I sent it to her and she let me join.  Here's my question:  once I send and receive positive feedback, is it okay for me to start a swap?  I had planned with some of the members & organiser of my current swap that I would do a poll and do the next swap, but I want to make sure it's okay. 

Just to clarify, I do have my receipt from the first swap and since I haven't heard much from my partner, I am having it tracked down (it's international).  I also just did an Angel swap if that helps any.

I just wanted to make sure that I'm not going to be breaking any rules.

216  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Summer Bag on: April 17, 2006 04:11:06 AM
After following several tutorials from here, I decided to tackle an actual store-bought pattern.  Let me tell you, I like tuts much better!LOL  I bought a "Lazy Girl Designs" pattern and it is NOT for lazy girls!

Here's the font of the bag:

The back of the bag(large pocket):

The inside of the bag (2 pockets inside):

I had purchased a 3 pack of fat quarters that looked summery or springy to me.  I think it turned out nicely, but it was a bit of a trial to put together.  Craftsters explain things much better!

217  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First Circle Skirt - I cheated! on: April 13, 2006 06:42:25 AM
Okay, I was having a hard time with the measurements for the waist part of the circle skirts.  So I went off to JoAnn's and used my 40% coupon to buy a circle skirt panel.  Now I understand it much better.  But I also learned how to put in a zipper nicely, how to make a waistband and how to attach rickrack to the hem!  So it was a good lesson for $6.

Here is a closeup of the fabric:

Here is the skirt on:

I really like that the skirt hides a multitude of flaws!LOL  I've been getting compliments all day.  I'm pretty pleased and think that now I can make one following the patterns on here.

218  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Just another Weasley shirt on: March 16, 2006 06:42:35 AM
I'm sure everyone is tired of seeing "Weasley Is Our King" shirts, but here's mine.  It's my first stenciled shirt and I was pretty pleased with it.  I just traced a crown and cut it out, then used my scrapbooking letter stencils to do the words.  I can't do straight and centered, perhaps because I'm a bit "off" (LOL), so I just went off to the side and angled.  It worked out okay.

Thanks for looking!
219  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Has anyone used FabricMate markers? on: February 14, 2006 11:14:50 AM
I bought some FabricMate markers for super cheap when the Joann's nearby was moving into a new store.  I can't find much on them, even on here.  One person said that they were great and one said they run out of ink fast. 

I want to know:
Does the color cover well?
Do I have to use just white to color on?
Do they fade quickly?
Does the color run or does it stay put?

I'm itching to use them and I may have to just use them on an old shirt to find out.  It says that they don't have to be heat set and that you can wash and wear after 24 hours, but that's it.

Thanks in advance!
220  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Anime (V-Day) Shrine on: February 10, 2006 09:05:28 AM
Okay, a male friend of mine needed to do something for his wife for V-Day.  I talked him into making a shrine.  Ok, mostly because I wanted to try it, but she'll love it!!!

If you're into Anime, you'll probably recognize it.  This is her fave movie and characters and we did the inside kinda different.  Please tell me what you think:
