31  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Craft My Fandom Swap? on: February 18, 2015 06:57:12 AM
I am thinking a regular swap. one large, one medium, and one or two smalls. Or a combination of those points. Spoil your partner if mutually desired (and I am a spoiler!). Maybe give 3-4 weeks to craft. Not sure when to start. Maybe if there is more interest in this?

This sounds good to me. What if we craft for all of March and have a send out date in the beginning of April? Just an idea!

lol I know for me that would at least give me time to familiarize myself with a fandom (if it's something new to me) and give me time to craft that many things in between work and have money to mail it out <3
32  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: craft the rainbow 2? on: February 18, 2015 06:53:40 AM
This sounds interesting. So would we craft an item for each color of the rainbow or just make something that includes all of the colors?

Lately I'm hooked on rainbow color schemes and color spectrum in general. I'm dying to hear if others are interested in the swap Smiley
33  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Is anyone ready for a round of Spell My Name? on: February 18, 2015 06:50:52 AM
This sounds really neat. I've never been in a round of this before. I'll keep an eye out for it!
34  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Breaking Bad Swap on: February 18, 2015 06:42:44 AM
Maybe I can get this started mid-February for sendouts come the end of March?  I'm very excited that others are interested!

This sounds awesome to me!

By any chance would we wanna make this Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul? Capture the whole 'bad' universe.
Hehe I've been enthralled with this too. I love Bob Odenkirk <3
