1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "Spaced" Swap on: July 28, 2008 06:48:18 PM
Do you love Spaced as I do?  Do you feel like you might desperately need Tim's "Chocolate" beanie or a "Marcia" t-shirt?  With the release of this show to U.S. DVD, I've found bliss.  I don't know if anyone else would want to do a swap based on the show, but I'd be more than happy to organize.  Oh, please, someone else love this as much as me!  Oh, and because I'm guessing that there'd be international sending, I'd want to keep the packages on the smaller side.

What are your favorite colors? jewel tones
What colors do you hate? neon, yellow, orange, and ones that easily show dirt (just for this swap though!)

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I Am A Runner Swap? on: January 26, 2008 12:51:54 PM
I've noticed a severe lack of craftyness revolving around the sport of running! I would imagine that there are other runners around here who could use a running log, Ipod cozy, headwarmer, water bottle holder, t-shirt, etc.  Anyone training for a 5K, 10K, half-marathon, marathon???

Details of swap:
Okay...this idea was brought up by Lydia Tthe Strange, who, by the way, posted a brilliant tutorial for crochet slippers!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0  Now, your slippers DO NOT HAVE TO BE CROCHETED!  They may be created in whatever way YOU can craft a pair of slippers!  You will be required to craft one pair of wearable slippers, and two, small items that would, hopefully, be related to slippers in some way.  One of the small items may be store bought.  If you want to send more to your partner, please make sure to communicate with them so that packages are of equal size and effort. 

That being said, and in the interest of my sanity, we will be keeping this swap small.  The short sign-up time is because I HATE having to wait! Smiley If you have any negative comments in your profile, you are welcome to apply for the swap, but I also reserve the right to ask about the comments as well as deny you a place in the swap.  I have no patience for flakers.  If you find, near the end that you may need more time, please be sure to communicate with me and your partner.  You dont need to become best friends with your partner, but you ARE required to communicate with them #1 When you receive their information, #2 When you send, and #3 When you receive!  Frankly, I dont care if you hate what they sent, please be kind, thank your partner, and tell them you love it!  I also require that you post pictures of what you have received within a reasonable amount of time unless you have a great excuse.  If there are any issues at any time during this swap, please contact me via PM.  Newbies are very welcome!

And finally, when you contact me, I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.  I work 5 days a week, run after work, have a husband, and a child, and I cannot access Craftster from work, so....please be patient!  If you havent heard from me within 24 hours, please send another PM as sometimes, they get lost in cyberspace!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Food Network Swap on: November 20, 2007 05:40:33 PM
I don't know if anyone else around here watches the Food Network as much as I do, but I thought it could be fun to do a swap around our love for everything Food Network.  I watch it so much that I've heard my husband actually say, "How good does that look?" a la Rachel, and I've found great pride in adding more butter to everything, a la Paula.  Just wanted to know if anyone would be interested in this!
