1  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Adults Only Swap -- 1 Angel Needed on: January 09, 2007 07:41:51 PM

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Adults Only Round 2? on: November 25, 2006 09:09:21 AM
So I was wondering about how many people would be interested in a second round of the Adults Only Swap?  The only change in rules is no porn, though I would like to keep this 18 and over only.  Remember, when you post pics you have to use your discretion and might have to only post the links to pics.  If a swap mod says this pic needs to be posted as a link, please modify it ASAP.  Other than that...what do you all think?

Details of swap:
Yes, it is back! The Dollar Store swap.  Here's the rules from last swap.

We have all gone to the local dollar store and have seen things that would be fun to use in a future swap or a swap you're doing right then but didn't want to get it for fear of beening seen as a total cheapskate...well here's your chance! This swap is all about your dollar store love.

RULES:
1.  It's easy to go nuts in the dollar store, so there is a spending limit.  No less then $5 and no more than $10.
2.  There are fake dollar stores out there. You know the ones, The 99 Cents (and in really itty bitty letters) and up stores.  Well, for this swap the store has to be at least 90% of just dollar stuff, there are some stores out there that have a "roped off" section of items that are more than a dollar, but to store has to be almost all dollar items.
3.  No going to other stores like Micheals or WalMart and going to their dollar section.  The store has to be at least 90% dollar stuff.
4.  No thrift stores.  I know I know, but they are so wonderful! I thought a while about this and I think it would be fun to just keep to the dollar store.
5.  Think of this swap as a little bit of a stash buster, you can use whatever you have left over from other swaps or other crafts you can do...but no buying other stuff at the craft store.  Need yellow paint? Try to think of a way around it, change it around, be creative!  The only thing you can go get is glues.  Some things you want to do have a very specific glue needed that you just don't have, or you run out of it...so you can go get glues (or what ever you need to stick to it...).
6.  Go nuts! This should be fun and a bit tacky, after all it is the dollar store...the land of cheap plastic things and slightly stale food...and totally addictive *grin*

Any questions about any of this feel free to PM me, I am home around 7pm Pacific time so I will try my best to answer any questions as soon as I get home.

What to craft:

Thee small items, or one medium one small item, or one large item....as large an item can be from the dollar store lol  Really, it is all dollar store size relative.

There have been a lot of questions about the crafting for this so I am posting a link to the gallery from last swap to give you all an idea of what you can do.

5  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Adults Only Swap -- Angel Found!! on: November 06, 2006 10:54:54 PM
While this swap has done really well, we did have at least one flaker.  I need a partner for beckx.  You need to meet the swap requirements as posted in the sign ups, so please look at them if you're worried about that.  I will forward you beckx's info when an angel is found.   beckx's send outs is still at home, so you will recieve what is already crafted.

Okay people have sent! Yay! So just to modify postiing pics stuff...

You can post pics of the "tame" things in here.  No pics of things with nakkid people.  That you'll have to post the link for.  If a moderator asks one of us, or all of us, to just post links then please edit your post and respect what the Mods say, they are here to make sure craftster is fun for everyone and that no one gets into trouble. 

So post what you have! Can't wait to see what you guys came up with...
9  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Gift Tag Swap (sign-ups Closed; Send Outs 11/16) on: October 14, 2006 12:00:31 AM

All ages allowed? Or 18+? Just ask your parents/guardians first.

Details of swap:
Okay it's that time of year where gifts are wizzing all over the place, and what does every gift need? That's right, a tag! Cause seriously, you don't want Great Aunt Betty to get that Boobie pillow you spent all week making for your significant other.  So what to make for this swap. 

We will make 15 tags of your partners chosing (for birthday, Christmas, not specific, et cetera).  The first 10 will be of either A) the same colour (or colour scheme) or B) the same design but in different colour(s).  The last 5 can be totally random.  The gift tags should be the size of an ATC/playing cards.

No DC# required for this one (if you can get one, great!) BUT keep your reciept and take a pic of it or scan it and send to me so you can get feedback.  If you use postage stamps for this take a pic of the packaged, addressed, and stamped.  I would rather get a pic/scan of the reciept than this option though okay.

So that's it! Have fun!

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / How long until I get an angel? on: October 09, 2006 10:38:21 AM
Hi! I am the organizer for the Dollar Store Swap Round 2.  Thursday night I posted a message that for anyone who has not contacted me to please get ahold of me to see how they were doing by sunday night or they would recieve negative feedback. I also sent PMs to all the people who had not contacted me.  I got a lot of responses back but there are a couple who I have not heard from.  The send out date was 9/28. 

So, how long should an organizer wait before getting swap angels? Do I post that myself or do I get mod approval first?

Thanks for all your help
