21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Adult Cozy Swap? on: March 23, 2007 08:28:32 AM
Okay...I know that there is an Adults Only Swap and there is a Cozy Swap, but what about a swap where we swap a cozy to hide our adult-type things?  After taking a trip to the romance super store the other day, my husband and I realized that we have nowhere to hide this stuff!  I thought about crocheting myself some sort of cozy, but then I thought that it might be more fun to do it as a swap if there are enough interested parties.  It could be a cozy to hide anything "adult"--magazines, DVDs, toys, condoms, etc, etc.  Let me know if ya'll are interested and I'll organize it!

Ahhhhhthe Disney Villain.  Where would Peter Pan be without Captain Hook?  Just flying around Neverland without a care in the world! BORING! Without Scar, Simba never would have met Timon and Pumba!  And how exciting would it have been if Cinderella didnt have an Evil Stepmother?  She would have been just another girl who met Prince Charming and got married!  Its the yin and the yang.  With no villain, we would have no hero, and it is usually the hero who receives the acclaim.  Today, we celebrate the villain!!!    Who sends chills down your spine (I know that Be Prepared still gives me the shivers!)Huh  Who is your favorite baddie???

25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Time Frames for Angel Packages on: March 08, 2007 11:57:56 AM
I haven't seen any "set" amount of time on here for the length of time that someone should take to make an angel package.  I'm just curious what the average amount of time is--I've seen people receive their angel package after a month, I've seen organizers ask that someone only takes 2 weeks to do it, and I, personally, was able to send one out in about 4 days. 
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A Crocheted Knitting Needle Roll Pattern? on: March 08, 2007 11:55:09 AM
I found ONE pattern on crochet pattern central, but I don't like it.  Has anyone seen a crochet pattern for a knitting needle roll?  I like the idea of making one in wool and then felting it--and I have seen the needle roll on the berroco (is that the right spelling?) website, but the needle roll is for knitters and the hook roll is for crocheters, but obviously it is not for knitting needles!
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet in a Half-Circle??? on: February 28, 2007 02:04:59 PM
Would it be possible to essentially crochet in the half-round?  I have this idea for a shawl, but I'm not sure if it's even possible to do it that way.  Let's say that you ch 2 and then do 5 DC in the 1st chain.  Then, instead of actually going around, you turn the work and increase by 5 in each half-round.  Does this sound like something that anyone has heard of?  Maybe it's a pipe-dream.  lol
28  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Let's Get Together in Denver Swap? on: February 25, 2007 01:03:02 PM
Another swapper and I thought it would be fun to do a "Denver Only" swap where we actually get together as one big Craftster group and have coffee and exchange swap packages.  I was wondering if there are any other Denverites out there that would be down for a swap like that?  Maybe do something where it's ONE large item--and only one--that we craft for another person.  For example, I crochet, so I'd certainly be willing to do something like a shawl, shrug, hat/mitten/scarf set, a quick afghan--that sort of thing!  We would have to decide amongst ourselves a central location to meet, but it could be a lot of fun!
29  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Stash-Busting Accessory Extravaganza--One Angel Found!--kantha_stich on: February 23, 2007 06:29:59 AM
We have one person in the Stash-Busting Accessory Extravaganza who has been waiting over a month for a package.  Girlbotgoods could really use an angel!
Here is the original thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=133601.0
Gallery:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144201.0

Here is some info about her:
Please list the five colors that youd most like used for items made for you:
1. Purples
2.greens
3. Maroon/mauve
4.blues
5.brown

Please list the five accessories youd most like to receive:
1. WIP tote
2.knitted/crocheted socks
3. purse
4. mittens
5.coin purse

Do you have any allergies?: NOPE

Anything else that you would want a partner to know about you: I really like funky kinda random stuff.  Im really into vintage (like 50s style). Oh, and im crazy about my pet guinea pigs.


She does live in the U.S. and the minimum amount to make was 2 accessories.  If you can help, please PM me with your information!  Thank you!
30  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Newbies Only Swap Round 3 (Sign-Ups Closed!!!; Send-Outs 03/19/07) on: February 19, 2007 09:02:02 AM
Swap name: Newbies Only Swap Round 3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: DisneyFan
Sign-up date range:02/19/07-02/26/07or Until Full   
Date to send item by:  03/19/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Yes--24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country? N/A

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages, but if youre under 16, please get your parents/guardians permission!!!  For real.  Ask mom, dad, older siblings, aunts, uncles, whatever if theyll mind taking you to the craft store and post office. 

Details of swap:
Heres the deal:  I know that there are a lot of you who think that swapping sounds like fun, youre tempted to try, but then, you chicken out.  You think, what if my crafting isnt as good as my partners?  What if I screw up?  What if I dont understand how to do this no matter how many times Ive read the swapping guidelines?  So many what ifs!  This is your opportunity to get your feet wet in the swapping pool with folks that are in the same boat!  This is your chance to ask all of the questions that youve ever needed answers to!  So, come on inthe waters fine!  I will be your guide through the world of swapping.  If you have any questions or concerns throughout this swap, please PM me or post in the forum!  There are some rules that must be followed in order to have an optimal swapping experience.  Some are Craftsters rules, some are mine! 

   I have now organized 2 swaps, and have realized that I need to be VERY SPECFIC about my rules.  Here there are:
1.   YOU MUST POST IN THIS SWAP THREAD AFTER YOU SEND ME YOUR QUESTIONAIRE PM IN ORDER TO BE ACCEPTED.  YOUR BEING ACCEPTED IN THE SWAP IS CONTINGENT ON ME SEEING A POST!
2.   YOU MUST POST AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK IN THE THREAD.  IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, YOU WILL RECEIVE THE COMMENT POOR COMMUNICATION IN YOUR PROFILE.  FOR A THREE WEEK CRAFTINGTIME, THIS IS ONLY 6 POSTS!!!  EVEN AFTER CRAFTING TIME IS OVER, AND WE MOVE INTO GALLERY TIME YOU NEED TO CONTINUE TO PARTICIPATENO COMMUNICATION = NERVOUS PARTNERS AND ORGANIZERS!!!  YOU ARE RELEASED FROM YOUR COMMUNICATION OBLIGATION ONLY AFTER BOTH YOU AND YOUR PARTNER HAVE SENT AND RECEIVED!!!
3.   YOU MUST COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTNER.  IF YOUR PARTNER CONTACTS ME AND SAYS THAT YOU ARE NOT COMMUNICATING WITH THEM, YOU WLL ALSO RECEIVE THE COMMENT POOR COMMUNICATION IN YOUR PROFILE.
4.   IF I GET THE FEELING THAT SOMEONE MAY BE A FLAKER, I WILL NOT ALLOW THEIR PARTNER TO SEND UNTIL THEY HAVE BEEN SENT TO AND RECEIVED!!!
5.   WHEN YOU SEND YOUR PM TO JOIN THE SWAP, IF ALL OF OUR POSTS ON CRAFTSTER CONSIST OF ONLY NICE JOB, GREAT, AND THEY SHOW NO ACTUAL PARTICIPATION IN THE CRAFTSTER FORUM, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE!
6.   MOST IMPORTANTLY:  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO PARTICIPATE ONLINE, COMMUICATE WITH YOUR PARTNER, AND/OR CRAFT, PLEASE DO NOT JOIN!!!  THIS MAY SOUND HORRIBLE, BUT I HAVE SEEN TOO MANY FIRST-TIME SWAPPERS GET HOSED BY THEIR PARTNERS AND THAT LEAVES A TERRIBLE TASTE IN SOMEONES MOUTH!!!
   Keep in regular contact with your swapping partner!!!  Some people end up talking more than others, but even if you dont become fast friends with your partner, check in with them so that they dont think youve fallen off the edge of the earth.  Let them know that youre working on their crafts.  And, most importantly, the more you talk, the more youll get to know what they like!
   Now, this is Craftsters rule:  YOU MUST PM ME AND YOUR PARTNER WHEN YOU SEND AND WHEN YOU RECEIVE.  IF YOU ARE SENDING WITHIN YOUR OWN COUNTRY, YOU MUST HAVE A DC# (DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER)THEY COST AN EXTRA $.50-$.60 IN THE US.  WHEN  YOU PM TO SAY YOU HAVE SENT, BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR DC NUMBER.  IF YOU ARE SENDING OUT OF YOUR COUNTRY AND CANNOT GET A TRACKING NUMBER, YOU MUST KEEP YOUR RECEIPT AS PROOF OF SHIPPING!!!
   When you receive your swap package, you will then need to post in the gallery that will be created so that you can show off what you have received.  While posting pictures is not a requirement, I think that especially for this swap, it would be really great if everyone did.  If you dont have a digital camera and cannot get access to one, please ask your partner to take pictures before they send. 
   Ahhh.the crafting requirements.almost forgot:  Lets do 1 Medium item and 3 small items (you may do a variation of this1 large and 2 small, 2 medium and 1 small, etc.). The terms large, medium, and small are all relative.  I like to look at them from a time standpointLarge=3 or more hours, Medium=1.5-3 hours, and a Small being 1.5 hours or less.  This is so important: IF YOU ARE GOING TO SEND MORE THAN THE REQUIRED AMOUNT, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR PARTNER FIRST!!!  IF YOU AGREE TO SEND EACH OTHER MORE THAN THIS, FINE! 
   Oh, Ive probably forgotten something, so make sure that you read the information on swapping provided by Craftster.  And again, ask any questionthere is no question that has been asked so many times that it cant be asked again!   And just a reminder, I WILL NOT be crafting in this swap unless it becomes necessary for me to be a Swap Angel!  Im here to organize and guide!
   One more thing.keep in mind when filling out the questionnaire that the more flexible you are about what you receive, the easier it is to pair you up!  Personally, I like to allow my swap partners the flexibility to craft the things they love to craftwhile keeping in mind my tastes.  Also, please do not ask for items that are completely out of the realm of possibilityyour partner is not going to knit you a sweater in three weeks, and if you give them no other ideas, its going to be difficult to figure out what to craft you!  Also, I do believe that mentions of anything that can be perceived as controversial (i.e. religion, politics, etc.) should be left out of your questionnaire UNLESS it pertains to what you can/cant receive from someone.  Then, AND ONLY THEN, it should be stated in this way:  Due to religious, political, personal beliefs, I do not want to receive anything that is (fill in the blank).
