41  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Stinky yarn? on: September 17, 2006 03:32:39 PM
So I scored some yarn (free) at an estate sale, and it all smells musty... what is your method of de-stinkifying yarn?

 Kiss Kiss Kiss There you go!!!!

Here's how it works (in a nut shell);

*you are to craft in sets of 5 and you may do one or two sets.
   ~ for instance you may make 5 beaded bracelets OR 5 sets of greeting cards where each set has 4 cards.
   ~ you may enter a total of 10 items (or in essence put your 'name in the hat' twice) and those may be 10 sets of the same thing, or 5 of one item and 5 of another.
*these items should be a good representation of your work
*each item must have a retail cost of between $5 and $10 (you may send out items that would retail for more, and understand that you will likely have a wide range of return items) please see the galleries of the other sweat shoppes for some great examples! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100170.0 and
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=115099.0 also check out the discussion threads as people were posting their 'offered' items there!
*This is a huge swap. Communication is key, there will be a check in just before send outs, you are required to reply within 3 days of that post (this will probably be around Oct 1) or you will be considered a no-show and be removed from the swap list with a negative feedback
*please DO NOT send early, after the official check-in your name (and your partners) will be green on the official list, once your partner's name is green on the list you may send to them. IF you send early to someone not green, you may end up with negative comments in your feedback! (for not following directions!)
*don't hesitate to ask questions over in the discussion thread if you like, this is a SUPER FUN swap, and there are a lot of returning swappers to help you with those questions (as well as myself!)
*I'll send you an approval reply PM and you may post in this thread. Pictures are fantastic so everyone knows what kinds of things they have to chose from.
*your 5 items will be sent to 5 different people, a list of recipients will be posted around Sept 20th.


***IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

I'll send you a little questionnaire to post in this thread to introduce yourself and your item (s).

45  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / The sweat shoppe ~ needed one, GOT ONE!!! on: August 07, 2006 08:01:17 AM
Hi everyone,
the sweat shoppe swap needs someone to craft 5 small to medium size items for our swap! We have had a DOUBLE FLAKER, (along with 2 original flakers). One craftster flaked then came back and asked if she could fix her negative and then she flaked AGAIN!!! Send outs were July 18th and these lovely people have been so patiently waiting! Here's a link to the current round ....http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107236.0 which has links to round 2 which is the round we are trying to finish!

The items are something you can craft quickly/easily, that you would retail for between 4-9 bucks. So nothing extremely large or time consuming...
thanks in advance!

46  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Sifting through PM's on: August 01, 2006 03:54:24 PM
hopefully this is not a repeat!

I would love to see a feature in your in box where  you could search PM's by recipeint. So, say I am in your swap, and so are 7 other people, we are all PM-ing you, so everthing is 'labeled' my swap, BUT what if you want to just search for a Pm from javastain... the only way to do that, is to pre-organize your labels by person before a swap starts. Then you need to have subdivisions in your labels!!!

Third verse same as the first!

The is the official sign up thread for the sweat shoppe swap round 3~This is the sweat shop swap, a labor of love if you will! The opportunity to put a sampler of your items out in the crafting world, with a business card, or your Etsy store location, is here! We will be crafting in multiples of 5 (and no more than 10) so you may craft 5 items or 10 items (not 6 or 4 or 11). The number of items you craft will be the number of items you receive back. The items will be a medium size, and can be 'bundles', for instance, you can do a bundle of 3 thank you cards, and send 5 bundles (or 15 cards). You will have the option of choosing your top 2 favorite items of the other crafters. No guarantees but I will try to get everyone at least one of their two favorites! Woo hoo! here are the thread links to the discussion thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 and second round gallery which has the links to the sign up threads and first round gallery etc...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100170.0

This is your opportunity to put your best work out there for others to sample and enjoy. This round is not very different than round one or two. Here are the basic rules;

*you are to craft in sets of 5 and you may do one or two sets.
   ~ for instance you may make 5 beaded bracelets OR 5 sets of greeting cards where each set has 4 cards.
   ~ you may enter a total of 10 items (or in essence put your 'name in the hat' twice) and those may be 10 sets of the same thing, or 5 of one item and 5 of another.
*these items should be a good representation of your work

*This is a huge swap. Communication is key, there will be a check in just before send outs, you are required to reply within 3 days of that post (this will probably be around Aug 21) or you will be considered a no-show and be removed from the swap list with a negative feedback
*please DO NOT send early, after the official check-in your name (and your partners) will be green on the official list, once your partner's name is green on the list you may send to them. IF you send early to someone not green, you may end up with negative comments in your feedback! (for not following directions!)
*don't hesitate to ask questions over in the discussion thread if you like, this is a SUPER FUN swap, and there are a lot of returning swappers to help you with those questions (as well as myself!)

48  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Is there such a thing? on: June 29, 2006 04:58:13 PM
OK, I don't even know what to search for but let me see if anyone knows what the heck I am talking about!;

Is there such a thing as a charm 'form' that you can purchase pre-made, where you can like, press sculpy into it, or melt glass or pour resin, and you don't pop it out after, it stays there as part of the pendant/charm (like silver or copper or what have you)... does this make sense? So, you leave it in the form that has the jump ring or whatever already attached... this is for those kind of people who want that effect without using solder and a bunch of tools... so, am I wishful thinking here or is there such a thing and what the heck would it be called?
Thanks for anything!

50  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Neighborhood BBQ? on: May 26, 2006 11:40:01 AM
Hey everyone...
I am organizing a neighborhood BBQ, has anyone ever done one? Been to one? have tips on organizing the food and maybe some recipe suggestions? we have 14 houses on our block, and I think about half will join us. So say 7 families, a bunch of elementary school age kids and younger... probably 10 adults, and 8 children (I have heard scuttle that people might be having family join so it could be more...)
We live on a cul-de-sac and will be in the cirlce turn-a-round part. We will be doing this on the Saturday afternoon of the July 4th weekend.
Here are my questions;

1. anyone have recipes and food tips for a large group BBQ
2. how many BBQ's do you all think we should have going?
3.should we do something like every odd numbered house brings a side dish, and every even numbered house brings a dessert or salad and then do bring-your-own meat
4. should we have everyone accountable for their own condiments serve ware
5. should I try to organize a game, what game
6. any other activites?
7. what time should we start?
8. anything I'm not thinking of?

Thanks!
