61  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

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.

This is a secret swap, so you will need to PM me for more information and when you send.  You CANNOT contact the person you will be angeling for.  You will have a detailed questionnaire and you may stalk their Craftster posts, Facebook (if possible) and things like that.  The requirements are:  1 large, 1 medium and 1 small item.  Extras would be delightful! Wink  You would have two weeks from acceptance to craft and send your package.

In need of an Angel: Averia - lives in the US, no allergies, like embroidery, cross-stitch and jewelry.
69  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / IYP Round 18 Welcome to Spring! (Signups April 18 - May 2nd; Sendouts June 1st) on: April 18, 2011 01:45:28 PM

This description has been taken from IYP17, which was taken from IYP16, which was taken....you get the picture. Wink

Heres how it works:

In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

Swappers may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may have no more than two partners.

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like. Unless you choose otherwise. Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM me and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.
- you cannot sign up for this swap if you are still currently late in any IYP swaps.

Even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she/he says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. Once you do send, you will have positive feedback again, BUT this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.  


ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM SevsOnlyGirl and each other with mailing information.  
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a DC number when you do.
5. PM your partner and organizer when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless you PM us. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you. In this case, you still need to post in the gallery about what you received.
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!
