721  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Unconditional Swap - November on: November 04, 2005 02:31:17 PM
I'm in Minnesota! here are my wishes!

1. luggage tags. I am going to England next semester and want a few hefty but stylin' tags thata I can fit a business-sized card in.

2. A jewelry roll. Also for England. I want to be able to bring a bunch of jewelry, mostly necklaces and rings, so they don't get tangled.

3. ATC box. Just a little one so I can bring a little art overseas with me.

I got all my ATC'S  as of yesterday, and I love them all. Since I can't post pics, here are descriptions;

First, I got one from princess_me that is shaped like a gife tag. It has scraps of pretty paper all over and says "tag you are it" in ransom-note lettering. It made me smile. Smiley

The second one I got was from goatgoddess. It's a rich bronze color with a big skelatonized leaf over paper with a smaller leaf shape in the corner. Very appropriate for the season!

I got mine from Donna (don't know craft name, sorry) on a pretty bad day, so it was really ncie to get mail. It has layers of music notes, sandals, text, all topped off by a close-cropped pic of mona lisa.

MyrnaLoy sent me two. One is red with triangle-shaped cut out from starbucks stuff. The other is white with a multicolor sewing machine out line. Both very nice, and already in sleeves!

Thank you so much to all of you! I'm so glad to finally have the start of an ATC collection.
723  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Re: "My McCall's Weaving Loom" or What I found in my basement on: October 18, 2005 03:18:46 PM
I had that same loom when I was little! You just tie the yarn around one of the bottom posts and weave it back and forth between those posts, the hooks to the left in the picture, and then the posts in the back. Just make sure you alternate which row of hooks you use, because that's how you make it really easy to weave. You just push the pink levers on the side to raise and lower the hooks. As the piece gets longer, you can turn the front knobs to get the woven part out of the way. Have fun with it!

I dont have the time to participate in more swaps, but I do have something you guys may like. I have a set of Simpsons sheets I got at a garage sale this summer. If anyone wants to trade me a little something for them, pm me, and I'll get them out right away so you can use them for the swap.

I'm in Minnesota, and here are my wishes:

Here is my wishlist:

1. A band tee. I was thinking stenciled with embellishments, unless someone has a better idea. I am a small and want an average or long tee, not a belly shirt. Here are bands to choose from; Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Marilyn Manson, Perfect Circle, Live, Coal Chamber, Metallica, System of a Down.

2. Arm warmers. I am in far northern Minnesota, so it's pretty much going to be winter in a week. I use arm warmers nearly everyday, but I don't have enough pairs. I would like them long (at least elbow length), but not with a lot of material on my hands (I need to put gloves over them). Color, pattern, etc is really up for grabs. I love stripes in bold colors. The only huge rules are NO WOOL and NO GLITTERY YARN. Both make my skin itch and burn. Here's an example of the length I like; http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44961.0

3. Alright, I know I changed my third thing, but this is even better. I am going to England next semester, and can't bring very much stuff. But I do want a little stuffed animal to keep me company. I don't want any cartoon characters, like Mickey Mouse or that sort of thing. I love pretty much any critter, but I do not want a snake, any bugs, cats or fish. I would love, love, LOVE a my little pony-style plushie! Someone would be my hero if they made me one! Here are some others I like:

726  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / storing atcs on: September 30, 2005 10:44:13 AM
When I found out what ATC's were, I was told they are the same size as a baseball card. Now that I'm getting into them, I have been wondering, how does everyone store their collection. I wanted to get a baseball card album, but before I do, I wanted to see if it has worked or not worked for other people. I just keep thinking that with all the paint and stuff, will they even fit? Would a 3.5" by 5" photo sleeve be better? Please let me know. I just want to be able to trasport them and look at them. I'm headed to England for a semester and can't bring more then a few things, but I want these to be one of them.

Thanks for any help.
727  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Green Purse Swap! SIGN UP CLOSED SEND BY Sept 10, 2005 on: September 27, 2005 10:06:09 AM
I got my purse from HHH yesterday, and it rocks! I can't post pics sadly Sad, but I can describe it. The outside is a beautiful, earthy green with grassy looking shimmery lines. The inside is the same kind of green , but in a lighter batik cloth. It has a closure and adjustable strap. Best of all, it came with goodies. I got a really cool composition book and this kick-ass lime green cloth with bats on it. I feel like there was something else, but I can't recall. As soon as I do, I'll update.

thanks again HHH!

I got my package like a week ago, and it was amazing. I got so many papers, stickers and vintage valentins, I don't even know what to do with them all! Thanks again!
729  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / build a book on: September 20, 2005 08:33:58 PM
Okay, I have an idea for a swap, and hopefully enough other people will like the idea that it will take off.

The main idea of the swap is for each member to end up with a completed book. So this swap should be small, but not too small, like around six people (you'll understand why later). The organizer would pick a template for the pages so the size and hole placement is consistent. Then, each person would get to pick the theme they want their book to be, for example "elephants." Each of the other people would make a page with that theme and mail it out. It would be up to the recipient to make a cover and bind the pages together. So everyone would end up making and mailing five seperate pags.

Now, I know this sounds like a lot of individual, personalized work and mailing, but I think this is the best way for a few reasons. First, everyone's book would have a lot of variety. Also, each person wouldn't have to wory too much if they felt two pages they made are a little redundant of have some of the same stuff, because they are going to two people. And I don't think this has to be an expensive venture. Each page could be sized like an ATC, or the size of a legal envelope. Then, you could really go all out, but it would only take a stamp or two for each mail-out.

Also, I'm sorry I'm not just setting this up and running it myself. I had a terrible experience organizing my first swap, and it'll be a while before I try again. So if anyone is bored and wants to give it a swing, please do. Just please let me know, so I can join.  Smiley
