91  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / August 2006 Birthday Month Swap--moved to CLOSED SWAPs on: August 02, 2006 03:44:47 PM
PLEASE READ ALL RULES BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR INFO IN.

NEW RULE:  Newbies will not get credit or feedback on this swap unless they craft for their fellow August Babies!!!  You can put up you list if approved, but it will not count as a completed swap...

DO NOT POST YOUR LIST UNTIL I SEND YOU A PM SAYING TO DO SO

Swap name: August 2006 Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: alwaysinmyroom--I AM NOT AN AUGUST BABY (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: 8/01/06-8/31/06
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone unless other arrangements are made ahead of time
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

    * If your birthday is in August, then you can post your wishlist for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out.
    * Once I PM you and let you know you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better.   The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what your birthday is.
    * Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please.
    * Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in July for you to craft for someone.   If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for,what item, and I will send you their address.
    * If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door unless you communicate in advance that something will take a bit longer.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from you…you guessed it, negative feedback!
    * Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!
    * It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).
    * You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
    * Some people absolutely cannot send to people overseas for any number of reasons.  Please state at the beginning where you are so that we can respect this valid concern.
    *When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see that you have been chosen and what has been chosen.  It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.

94  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Crochet Earrings using free plastic rings from CD's!! on: June 06, 2006 03:16:42 PM
I have been collecting those clear plastic rings off the tops of a stack of CD's for years but could never think what to do with them.  Then, one of my swap buddies asked for crochet earrings and provided me with a link to ones she liked....

Well, I am a beginner crocheter so I just started "winging" it--every pair started by doing a SC around the clear ring.  From there, I just did basics like SC, DC, chain, etc.  Here is what I came up with for her birthday :

Sage green perle cotton with silver and shell beads:


Cream gold/silver metallic thread with brass sun charms:


Colonial blue perle cotton with seed beads:


I also made a black set but forgot to take pictures.  Maybe she will post in the May Birthday board!

Thanks for looking and thanks to askaboutrpickles for the inspiration!!
95  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I Love Asian-inspired Fabric!! BIG PICS on: May 21, 2006 08:00:34 PM
I am on an Asian-fabric kick!!  I have been making them left and right for swaps and friends and family!

Here are the three latest:

This one was made for kasie in the May Unconditional Swap:
 

This one was for my sister:


And finally, one for me!!


Guess what some swap partners are going to get!!?? ha ha
96  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sushi Purse on: May 12, 2006 08:56:06 PM
I made this bag for the daughter of my good friend for Mother's Day!  She is the reason why my friend is a great mother.



Happy Mother's Day (early) to all of the mothers!
97  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I see the light! Stuffy-mania hits home! on: May 02, 2006 06:09:01 PM
I now know why everyone loves these little guys!  They are so cute and have such personalities!
My first one was made with a pattern from a book I bought off an auction site. Now that I know the basics, I can't wait to make my own patterns for all types of creatures!  I guess I better learn to make a stuffy ark...

This was one I made for a swap...I miss her but she is well loved by her new mom (night_owl!)

98  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Kimono Purse for Spring on: May 02, 2006 06:01:42 PM
I have been so busy with swaps that I forgot about my own Spring purse!  I carry a cell, lip gloss, sunglasses, and a wallet with a zillion pockets!  Of course, my tote carries everything else!  Cheesy

I have tons of vintage kimono fabrics from my wall hangings and quilts so I decided to piece a bunch of the smaller pieces together and make my current favorite craft:  a purse!!  They are so easy that so far I have made about eight of them!  This one is my fav cos it goes with my jeans, which I wear to work everyday!  Lining is a simple black satin and the strap is a reinforced cording.  I beaded a bauble for the tab but the pic does not show it! Undecided

Here ya go:  my own Spring Bag


 Photos removed to make room!
 

99  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The ongoing Purse-making Addiction! Spring Purse on: April 23, 2006 09:33:21 AM
OK--so it is not MY spring purse!  I made this purse for a funky, whacky and fun-loving swap buddy  Wink in my first swap ever (I highly recommend these swaps!), so technically, it is HER spring purse!  Thought you might like to see yet another purse; will we ever run out of inspiration or fabric?  I THINK NOT!



and the guts..

100  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Knitted Purse that started as a Hat on: April 17, 2006 04:52:54 PM
I normally knit and crochet and have recently started making fabric bags (ADDICTED!)...here is one of the simple knitted purses I made using leftover yarn from another project. It is probably a good thing I switched over when I did... You can see more pics and read all about how it started as a hat and became a purse...oopsy!
