63  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / FOC Only Pinterest Swap? on: August 27, 2011 06:13:35 PM
For a special FOC (Friend of Craftster) swap - I would like to do a Pinterest Swap. You would need to show that you are an FOC in order to join the swap.

In the swap thread, we would each list our Pinterest link and the boards that we are interested in having crafted.  Then someone would choose you and a board.  It would work like the Ongoing Wish Swap - there would be no chitchat in the thread, just claims. 

From the date you choose your person and board, you would have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.  It would be open to everyone, internationally. 

Any thoughts?
64  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Stocking Swap Round 7 on: August 27, 2011 06:10:17 PM
Is anyone up for round 7 of the Christmas Stocking Swap this year? Smiley  Here's the details:

We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Each set of partners will make a decision as to how much and how large of items they wish to fill their stockings with.  There will be check-ins every two weeks, so please be prepared to check-in! Smiley   It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap:
                      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!!

Any thoughts on making it better?  I'm thinking of doing signups for September 15 - Oct. 1 with sendouts on December 1st.  That gives 2 months of crafting.  This is a swap where checkins are done with the organisers. 

Here's the links to all the galleries done so far, they're fun and awesome!!

The angel is lvl0rg4n!
66  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My first Fairy House on: August 08, 2011 05:51:49 AM
I made this house for mandykaye in the Make A Friend Swap. Smiley  It's not my usual craft, so I spent a ton of time on it, mostly trying to figure out if it would come out okay or not! Wink  I purchased a paper mache house from Hobby Lobby and was concerned that it was too small, but it certainly wasn't. Smiley

The completed house:

A birds eye view of the roof:

I wanted a second floor, but it had to be removeable.  No, I wasn't quite ready to make a staircase, maybe next time.  Hubby came up with this idea:

The second floor sits on the wood and removes easily.

The dining room:

The living room:

The second story bedroom.  The second floor removes by way of grasping the bench and lifting gently.

And just because I was so darned proud of myself for making these flowerpots...they are tiny clay pots with dried moss, chenille stems and buttons!

Thanks for looking! Smiley
67  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / 2 angels needed for Yarnies vs. Sewists Rd 4 on: July 13, 2011 06:42:39 AM
Original Thread


Member needing two angels:  zigg13pra

zigg13pra had two partners and needs two angels. Smiley  The swap requires 1 medium item and 1 small item.  These items do need to be made by "Yarnies" please. Smiley

Some stats on zigg13pra:

- lives in the US
- allergic to smoke
- loves firey colors, orange is my fave (but not everything looks good orange).  Orange/white is my fave combo.  For wearables I love those colors or things in my school colors purple/white/black
- does not like Puke green, dark burnt orange/yellow and country themes
- favorite animals are Cats, dragons, chinchillas, horses

Her top 5 wishes for this swap were:
1. Agri - a dragon would be awesome!
2. A Jayne hat from Firefly.  Someone made me one but it was too small Sad  My teddy bear wears it instead.
3. Headband like I have on my wist.
4. Clothes/hats/accessories for Blythe!
5. Fingerless hand warmers (I'd love in purple/white/black!)

If you are interested in angeling for zigg13pra, please send a PM to SevsOnlyGirl with what you would like to make.  All packages would need to be posted within two weeks of approval.

Thank you!!

1 Angel Needed

Unfortunately, we had one package go AWOL. Sad  So now bohochick19 is in need of an angel. This swap requires 1 medium and 2 small items.  I would like the package to be sent in two weeks from being approved as the angel.  Please PM me if you are interested.

A little bit about bohochick19:

She lives in Singapore.  She would really like to have something knitted in granny squares.  Her fave colors are bottle green, Lemon Yellow, Terra Cotta, Lavender, Prussian Blue.  Relevant size:  shoe size is 8 and I think I would fit a S/M shirt.  Nothing for cold weather please.
