Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Christmas is all about being creative and in the giving spirit. You will be crafting a mix CD playlist of holiday songs for your partner.

Please decorate your case and add a little goodie - an ornament, or blank homemade card or whatever your crafting idiom is.


New swappers are welcome. But please read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. I will ask that you PM me with any questions so we make sure you understand the swap process and can have fun without confusion.

Details of swap:
Everyone has favorite music that we want to share with others or songs that have special meaning for us and conjure up immediate images everytime we hear it. Let's all share our favorite music.  We will be sending out 2 mixed CDs (1 copy of the same mix to 2 partners). I will attempt to match you up with someone with similar taste in music and then to broaden your ears/library you will also receive a CD of new music/genres to explore outside of your comfort zone. So each swapper will have a "safe CD" and a "surprise CD". Each CD will be filled with the favorite songs of your partners so it will have that extra care packed into each silvery morsel of music.

We have a lot of newbies interested in this. Please read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. I will ask that you PM me with any questions so we make sure you understand the swap process and can have fun without confusion. The most important thing for everyone is to communicate with me and to communicate with your partner.

If you want to participate, PM this questionaire to the organizer.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address (format as it will be mailed especially for non-US addresses):
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
You are required to get a Delivery Confirmation Number when sending within the US. If outside the US hold onto mailing receipts for record keeping. Agreed?

What is your favorite type of music? (list up to 5)
Who are your favorite artists/bands? (keep it under 10)
What types of music would you most like to receive? (list up to 5)
What kind of music do you not own but would like to hear?
What genre of music are you least interested in receiving?
Do you have a problem with offensive language in music, or could this be a problem?
Any other information you think would be helpful for your swap partner to know?

-------------------
Here are your partners. Send your discs to both of your partners. We are sending in CD format (not MP3). You may choose to send more than a single disc (if you're in a mixing frenzy) but only one disc is required per partner.
Also please keep a typed digital copy of your playlist. Once your partners have received you can post it in the gallery. The original poster for this swap (evildeadgirl) envisioned being able to explain why the music is your favorite music so you can write a little blurb about it.

Have fun!! And new swappers - PM me with any questions. Everyone - stay in touch with your partners. Let's make this a flaker-free swap!  Smiley

I moved the partner and sent/received status list over to the gallery so I don't have to keep updating it in both places.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Wes Anderson Swap Take 2 on: October 02, 2006 08:01:51 PM
I was watching Rushmore last night and with all the visual imagery in Anderson's film and all the quirkiness it made me wonder if anyone had ever done a swap like this.
And lo they had:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=48737.0

We have our pick of brilliant favorites for inspiration:

Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums and the Life Aquatic.

Anyone else love these movies and wanna do a fun swap? What dates work best for you? Long crafting times are cool.

 
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pee Wee's Playhouse swap on: September 04, 2006 10:23:37 PM
Hi,

I just got back from a weekend at a lakehouse where it rained ALL day Saturday so we watched my friend's DVDs of Pee Wee's Playhouse. I forgot how funny, colorful and just plain kooky and addictive it was. I also adore Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

And now that they are re-airing PWPH on Cartoon Network there has to be new interest/new fans.

I thought we could do a fun swap with the playhouse theme.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / adult tees altered into toddler or baby tees on: May 05, 2006 06:59:01 PM
Help!

Has anyone ever made a toddler tee or jumper out of an adult sized tee? My husband has a ton of old retro rock and comic tees that he's hanging onto. Before I had my daughter I remember there was a boutique in NYC where they altered adult rock tees for kids and babies. I just wondered if anyone had experience before I cut into his prized tees. I'm just wondering if you had suggestions on where I should cut so the design, hem etc would equal legs, sleeves, etc.

If I figure it out I'm sure all our friends would love us to do the same for their kids.

Thanks for any suggestions!
