21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Paper & Ephemera Swap 4 (SIGNUPS CLOSED ; MAIL BY 9/11/06) on: September 24, 2006 06:58:18 PM
In updating my database for this swap tonight I realized there are a number of parcels that I haven't been informed if they've arrived -- so I checked with USPS using the DCNs.  Angry

If you have received a parcel for this swap, check your partner's status on the information post, and if they are still showing green you MUST SEND ME A PM.

At this point in time, the people who are showing on the USPS site as having received their parcels (some over a week ago!!) will receive a "needed to be reminded to communicate" note in their feedback if they PM me within the next 48 hours. Otherwise I will leave feedback that says "did not communicate, poor swapper."

Communication with your organizer is a fundamental part of the swapping system. That I have a list of people that haven't PMed me to say they've received is crap. Especially with the new swap rules -- you're holding back another person who has met their responsibilities to move onto another swap.

Looks like I've stalled the swap... with 24 fabrics on offer.  Huh I won't be able to add more until tomorrow night at the earliest, I'm sorry.

Oh yeah!

cornflakegirly, I'd like to claim a 1/2 yard of your "Egyptian Kitties" fabric, please.

My fabrics are modelling themselves here for the next swapper's fabric hording glory!

Ok, I can't remember who I got this awesome fabric from but I do know it's from the fabric swap!

I found a cute as anything pattern for a zippered bag on a Japanese craft site and decided I'd make my kidlet's pencil case for this school year using the pattern. I allowed her free choice in my fabric cupboard and she chose a very cute busy ladies fabric. I paired it with some striped fabric I found at bouclairs and voila! A pencil case!

I rushed too much with the putting in of the zipper so it's a bit sloppy, but the kidlet doesn't mind.

I've been in a personal swap with loves2experiment for a while now! We were aiming for an August 31st send out but that didn't happen, and I have yet to send out my end of things yet. Bad me! But I must show off the gorgeous pantas and fabric loves2 sent me!



The pink panta is for my kidlet, who loves pink with a passion. The orange one is for me and is so unbelievably soft (microfiber yarn) plus the bonus of matching fat quarters of fabric!

yay!

Thank you, loves2experiment! They're awesome.

When it rains it pours! I received all my paper swap packages on the same day. A fabulous, fabulous haul! Look, see and drool in envy.

~*~
First up, my package from Shiitake in Finland!


She included images from calendars, magazine pages, receipts, envelopes, gosh, so much!


My favourites from the pile: a paper/fabric sheet in orange shades, some sewn envelopes made from calendar cutouts and 3 fox stickers (which my daughter wants to run off with!)

Thank you so much, Shiitake! The selection you sent is amazing and I can't wait to start using it all!

~*~

Next up came the package from jojokeller in Korea!


She sent a massive pile of various fancy papers that I can't remember the name of at the moment, perfect for card making, some cartoons, postcards, posters, and much more!


My favourites from jojo are the posters, a grocery flyer, 2 postcards, some very odd to me stickers with people saying things I cannot read at all and some very cute fancy paper!

Thank you so much jojo! I'm actually a little intimidated by the gorgeous fancy paper you sent, it demands to be used and used well! Smiley

~*~

Last but not least, the package from Phizzychick in England!


She sent me a fabulous selection of corrugated paper, wallpaper samples, origami paper, pages from books and a journal, and tons of ephemera.


My favourites in this package are the pages from the journal (with instructions to learn ballet moves on that day, etc), a calendar page made from papyrus, a colour and cut out landscape thing, and some cards.

Thank you so much, Phizzychick! The sheer volume of different things you sent has ignited my imagination of things to make and do.

~*~

Thanks again, partners! I'm so thrilled with what I received!

igobylorib,

Don't forget that you need to claim a total of a 1/2 yard each time you claim to keep it fair. You can obviously chose not to, but you'll miss out on a FQ you're owed.
