Too many good swaps to pass up? How about swapping with yourself?
I am restarting this craftalong because there are just too many swaps that many of us can't join but we want to craft!!!
This is a craftalong for swap junkies.
Do you love swapping? Do you love getting inspired by swap themes? Do you maybe get more done with a deadline?
Are you trying to save money? (shipping is pricey!), or maybe you love a theme, but you want to make certain items?
Whatever your reasons, feel free to join up!
In this craftalong we will be "fake-joining" swaps that are current. Then we will craft along the parameters of the swap, including send out dates, what needs to be sent, and if extras are allowed or encouraged; at the end of the swap period we will give ourselves the things we have made!
For example...(fake example)
I want to join the Carnivorous Plant swap, but I don't have a lot of money for shipping this month, and I really want a mug rug embroidered with a plant , so I'm going to fake swap.
I will post in this thread like this:
My name is alwaysinmyroom
I am joining the Carnivorous Plant Swap.
I will make 1 mug rug for this swap
It is due by January 31, 2015.
And now I'm signed up!
I am organizing this fake swap, so I'll keep track of all the participants, and send out reminders when people's swaps are almost due. When you have finished your item(s), please post here gallery style, so we can all congratulate you!!
Just to be clear, you can sign up here to fake-participate in ANY swap...and I'll let you fake-join up to 5 fake-swaps.
Please, only sign up if you are serious about completing the swaps. I understand that life happens, but I'll take time every day (or 2 or 3) to update everything, so please don't sign up if you're not going to try, you know?
