4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Deco Swap (PIF) on: December 29, 2004 07:05:05 PM
Anyone interested in a DECO SWAP PIF (Pay It Forward)?  It will be a long term commitment, so if you cannot commit, please do not join. 

What is a deco?  Check it out:  http://www.lisavollrath.com/articles/009.html

You start one deco for the previous poster from their list.  Post and PM the person you will be making the deco for to get an address.

You list 4-6 themes you would like in return.  The next person to post chooses one of your themes and list their own themes.

IT WORKS LIKE THIS:

I begin with the following list:

1. Fairies
2. Paper Dolls
3. Dragons
4. Horses
5. Pin-Ups
6. Lyrics

PARTICIPANT A posts that she will make a dragon deco for me.  She then lists the following for her themes:

1.  Cows
2.  Cats
3.  Airplanes
4.  Italy

PARTICIPANT B posts that she will make a cat deco for PARTICIPANT A.  She then lists the following for her themes:

1.  Flowers
2.  Color Red
3.  Water
4.  Babies
5.  Teeth

PARTICIPANT C posts that she will make a water deco for PARTICIPANT B.  She then list her themes.

ETC., ETC., ETC.

You can continue to sign up for decos that interest you.  Let me know if there is any interest.
5  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / U.S. & OVERSEAS BEAD SWAP - CLOSED - MAIL BY JANUARY 15 on: December 28, 2004 08:45:15 PM
I would love to receive some beads from other countries/areas.  I would be willing to organize a bead swap with other craftsters from overseas who would like to send me some beads and I can send you some American style beads. 

I am an old swap hag, but I understand that this is new to some of you, so let's try to work out the details together.

Everyone from overseas would send a package of 50 beads to each person in the United States.  That would be 4 bags of 50 beads.  Each person in the United States would send a package of 50 beads to each person overseas.  That would be 4 bags of 50 beads.  Does this make sense?  Postage should not be a huge issue on a small bag of beads, but if it is, please let me know.

No seed beads. Up to 10 of the 50 beads could be charms, but it is not mandatory.  Beads should go together somewhat (i.e. color, size) so that something could be made with the new stashes!  I think any findings or seed beads anyone wants to send would be considered an extra bonus, but is also not mandatory.

Mail by Janury 15, 2005 or sooner...the sooner the better!

Post pictures here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21921.new#new

HERE IS THE SIGN UP LIST:

OVERSEAS:  Purplehippo, Milly, Blackcat, Tinybits
UNITED STATES:  Bkrenning4, Mrsbenjimadden, krazigal72, xmelinda,


If there is any problem with mailing, please let me know.

Thanks!  Let's have fun!

IMPORTANT:

I TAKE SWAPPING VERY SERIOUSLY.  I WILL NOT HESITATE TO REPORT ANYONE WHO FAILS TO FOLLOW THRU ON THEIR SWAP OBLIGATION.  I UNDERSTAND DELAYS, BUT EXPECT TO BE NOTIFIED.  IF ANYONE DOUBTS THEIR ABILITY TO COMPLETE THIS SWAP, PLEASE EMAIL ME NOW.
