241  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Photography Challenge? on: April 05, 2008 06:54:36 PM
We obviously have lots of people who do photography, so why not do a challenge?

For me it would not necessarily have to have a prize, but that is just me.

Anyone else be interested or think this is a good idea?

Some possible Themes:
Closed (places that are old, closed or otherwise unoccupied)
Green (or any other colors would do)
smile (capture a smile)
old & new

Any other ideas are completely welcome. Smiley
242  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES / Blue Man Group Mosaic Mirror on: April 01, 2008 05:43:43 AM
Dollar store challenge entry had to made for under $10.00, and mine took $7.00.

Made from 1 - 10 inch melamine plate, 1 bag blue squiggles, 3 mirrors for candles, 1 bag blue glass gems and 1 bag clear glass gems.

When I was all done it reminded me of the "Blue Man Group". Had fun making this mosaic, so here is my entry for the Dollar Store Challenge.

Thanks for any comments, questions or suggestions Smiley

244  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Just Zigzag or Serger? on: March 24, 2008 06:13:08 AM
Is this done with a serger or just a zigzag stitch?

If it is a serger could it be done with zigzag on a regular machine? Guess I'm not real clear on the point of a serger. Huh

Thanks for any help. Smiley

246  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / When Do Reminders Become Annoying? on: March 13, 2008 03:55:30 AM
When sending reminders, follow-ups or information requests on swap progress...at what point does it become annoying or harassing?

By this I am speaking of PM/email being sent when someone is not doing as they should in the swap (late, no communication, no follow through on communication consistently). Do you just try to keep getting the person on track?
247  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / All Things Miniature on: March 06, 2008 10:06:28 AM
Would anyone be interested in doing a swap for things made small (small than normal)?

Whatever your craft of choice, just make it in miniature.
248  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Guitar Pincushion on: March 05, 2008 05:45:01 PM
Participating in the Pincushion Swap #6, and wanted to make my partner something different. In looking through her information I found out she plays the guitar, so that is what I made her. Very pleased it turned out the way I pictured it. Smiley

Fun factoids:
Stands about 8 inches tall, took about 5 hours to create, used felt, foam, beads, thread and a piece of cardboard in the neck.

Thanks for checking it out, and comments, questions always welcome. Smiley
249  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Great Paper Find! on: February 29, 2008 10:31:38 AM
Was cleaning and arranging my fabrics. They're stored in an antique hutch that belonged to my Dad as a boy, and it is lined with old newspapers.

The paper that was lining the drawers is from 1971, and had this little gem in it.

Don't know if anyone else recalls the "Love is..." series, but they were my favorites because they were so sweet and innocent. Heck they may even still be publishing it somewhere.

Now I've got to find someway to use this treasure. It measures 2 inches x 4 inches. Any ideas?
250  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Picking Partners in Group Swaps on: February 14, 2008 02:29:52 PM
Sometimes people request to be partnered with certain members, so they know in advance who their partner will be.  Other times, it might be a realllly general craft that will be customized to their particular partner later (for example, making a journal/book/recipe book/drawing book for the details/cover to be completed at a later date).

I started crafting before a swap once.  It was a photographer's swap and I knew I wanted to make a photo album as part of the package.  I started before the signups ended and then finished the details according to my partner.

Noticed this in your post sweets, and recalled it when I had this question come up. Hope you don't mind me using it from a different swap question topic. Smiley

Presently I'm in 3 swaps, two of which are going to be wrapping up this week with group sendouts.

While pa rousing the swaps I see people requesting certain partners, and I don't think this should be done.

If you just want to swap with certain people then do personal swaps, but to me the whole point of doing group swaps is to have the organizer give you the partner. If you keep swapping with the same people in all your swaps to me that would get boring.

On another note from an organizer stand point (though I've only been a co-organizer), it would be easier to partner if you don't have to fill partner requests first.

What is everyone else's thoughts on picking partners in group swaps?
