4972  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / One Tiny Thing 12 - FINISHED! on: April 13, 2007 07:46:41 AM

Swap name:  One Tiny Thing 12
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Homerof2
Sign-up date range:  April 13-17 or ealier if 24 people have joined
Date to send item by:  May 4

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants:  N/A

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

The idea is to make one tiny craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items should be 4"x4" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  An ATC (artist trading card) is tiny; a full-size drawing is not.  (If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!)

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?:
What craft skills can you use to make a high quality tiny item (ie.. knit, crochet, sew, quilt, shrine making etc..) :
What craft skills would you love your tiny item to be made with:
What kind of tiny things would you like to receive? (this is just a guideline) :
What are you favorite colors / motifs / styles:
What else would you like to tell you partner?  (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, etc.)

A few other things to follow:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT 12 in the title of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it!

3.   A DC# is not required since the packages are very small.  In all cases, save your receipt and be prepared to show me
      a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion

4.   Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  Some people are forgetting this and so I'm mentioning it yet
      again - follow the rules!!

5.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you MUST
      inform me and your partner.

6.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

            If you send on time and follow the guildelines of only one item, I will give you a "Great Swapper"
            If you send late* (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
            If you send late* but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination, I will give
               you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
            If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

* You have 2 1/2 weeks to craft and maybe longer if this swap fills up fast so I'm going to consider you late if you don't send by May 4th and it will be noted in your feedback.  That may seem harsh to some but in the past few swaps, people have been pushing the deadline and then expecting it not to affect their feedback.  It's only ONE tiny item and 2 1/2 weeks should be long enough to get it done.

6 or 8 months ago that would have scared me but now that I understand this whole stalking 'thing', I'm okay with it!  But you do have me curious as to why you would stalk little old me  Grin

4975  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 21 on: April 12, 2007 06:27:43 PM
I claim catpants for:

2. An 8" block or two for my craftster quilt!

This is my 2nd claim, none sent.  I'm in Alberta, Canada.

Here is my short list - if it stalls, I'll try to add more but these are things I really want 

1.  Any cotton fabric with craft related theme - buttons, yarns, thread, scissors, measuring tapes - minimum 1/2 yard please.

2.  Sewing thread in the following colors:  black, white, navy blue, purple, yellow

3.  Orange cotton fabric that's not too girly.  I'm starting to collect fabric to make my oldest son a quilt and orange is his favorite color - FQ minimum/piece, please

4  Cotton fabric with trumpets and/or clarinets on it - 1/2 yard minimum, please

5.  Laurel Burch's Hearts and Hummingbirds fabric in lavender - 1/2 yard minimum, please

6.  A candy goodie box (this would be especially fun if you live in a non-North American country.)  I've had 2 such packages before and totally loved them but now I'm out so I'd love more.  No chocolate please as I'm allergic to it.  A few things I like are sour candy, chewy candy, dutch licorice but I won't turn other kinds away  Grin

I'd call him Frankie - he reminds me somewhat of Franklin the Turtle but since that name is already taken, I'd use a slight variation on the name.
4977  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: my unidentified amigurumi! on: April 12, 2007 06:03:42 AM
I'd say large eyes and a soother!

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was a baby girl so that's why I suggested the soother  Grin

Great job!  I love working in thread and think that every crocheter should learn how!
4979  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: My 4yr hat on: April 12, 2007 05:58:35 AM
Very cute hat and a sweet model.

I thought when I saw the title that you were going to say it took you 4 years to complete.  Glad to know it was for a 4 year old!
