1  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / The Everything Harry Potter Swap- 1 Angel Needed (FOUND) on: February 14, 2008 03:14:36 AM
Hi guys,
I need one more angel for the lovely mixymo
She's in Australia and has waited patiently for her package since last August! It would be great to get a brilliant angel to craft the most awesome package possible in the shortest time possible!

A little about her:

Your Hogwarts House: Slytherin or Ravenclaw - every sorting hat is undecided. But leaning towards Slytherin.   
Your Favourite HP book: 5
Your Favourite HP movie: Possibly 5th! Actually probably 5th!
Favourite character: Ron, Twins, Neville, Harry
Favourite character Relationship: Harry/Cho, Crabbe/Goyle HAHA!
Coolest concept/power/item in the wizarding world: Timeturner! Marauder's map
Favourite magical institution (ie: are you a Ministry of Magic backer, or a Death Eater? Maybe you would love to be in the D.A. or part of S.P.E.W): D.A.!! I hate the Ministry of Magic lol..
Favourite animals, beasts, creatures: nifflers, crookshanks, pigwidgeon, centaurs i suppose.. and if you listen to Pottercast - "Blast-ended skrewt, I choose you!" ahah
I am interesting in items that are (eg: house-based, character-based, magical creatures, magical objects, a mixture of everything!): character based, house based, magical objects, uhh pretty much anything interesting..Luna based! lol!
Crafts I admire: sewing, knitting, embroidery, stencilling/screen printing
Items I'd love to receive: Marauder's Map, stitch markers, I like things I can wear or use. hmm..check my wists


So any angels out there.. I hope to hear from you! I know there were a few people interested from last time around.. PM me again and let me know if you're still willing!

Thanks
Cheesy

6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / SEPTEMBER 2007 BIRTHDAY SWAP! on: September 03, 2007 09:38:13 PM
*sings* Happy Birthday to US, Happy Birthday to US!!  Grin

This is the SEPTEMBER 2007 BIRTHDAY SWAP! Please make sure you read all the rules before committing to this swap. And Happy Birthday!

Swap name: September 2007 Birthday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  ViolinRomance
Craftster member who is the backup organizer for this swap: ZaftigMomma
Sign-up date range: This swap lasts from 4th September to the 4th October
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner (longer crafting time may be allowed for those making bigger items- PM ME TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS!)
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope
Non-U.S. participants allowed? YES!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages. 

"Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: I'm NOT organizing more than three swaps now.
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed at least one swap successfully before signing up for more: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES

All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


DETAILS:
This is a birthday swap; if you were born in September, post a list and you may receive a birthday present!  In your list be sure to include:
- Where you are from : generally state/country: so that people know where they have to send to- can make an informed commitment. (Compulsory)
- Crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.)
- Crafting supplies.
- You can also include your birthday and age if youd like! Cheesy (not compulsory!!)

HOW?!?!
First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire, I will tell you that you can post a birthday list.

This is not like the other claim swaps- such as OWS where you must pick again to repost your list. In the September 07 Birthday Swap, you post your list once and it will stay there for craftster to scroll through at will. I will be updating the sending/receiving list rather frequently, so if you are unsure who to craft for, that might give you a better idea Cheesy

BASICS:
- To be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- There must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- Once you have picked someone to craft for, you can be picked as many times as there are items on your list. (To make sure things are fair though, the organisers retain the right to restrict peoples lists if they are receiving a significant amount more than they are giving).
- You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things. If you have picked 3 people to craft for, you must send at least one of those items successfully before picking again.
- If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
- Please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number/receipt/proof when  sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- Regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive.
- You can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!

IMPORTANT:
If you were not born in September, you may still craft for somebody if youd like to, however they are not bound to craft for you in return. That being said...

If you receive a gift from anyone in this swap, you are required to mail a thankyou note/card/letter. Also post pictures of your received items in the gallery- or let your partner know before hand if you don't have a camera/scanner, so that thier work can be appreciated.
<<< Please note: These are conditions of this swap. Be aware that it will be noted in feedback/negative feedback may be received in incidences where this requirement is not fulfilled >>>

When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list so that other swappers know what is un/available.

EXAMPLE:
Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft. Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.


PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS FROM THIS ORGANISER:
*If you are going to be away from your postal service, you need to have a third party pick up your package and alert the organizer (me).
*Please don't PM me with your estimated date of sendout.  PM me after you have actually sent the package.
*If you have aversions to animal products or you have allergies that you feel need to be addressed, please include that in your introduction when you post your list (this isn't for me, it's for those who are crafting for you!).
*If you or your roommates smoke, please launder your crafts if possible or air-freshen them before sending.


PLEASE PM THE ORGANIZER WITH THE FOLLOWING
INFORMATION IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE
(Please make the title of your PM the name of the swap)

Name of swap: September 2007 Birthday Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Real name and mailing address:

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / September Birthday Swap 2007 on: August 28, 2007 07:49:02 AM
Hi guys,
I looked around and didn't see any other posts for a regular September Birthday swap.. Is anyone interested? I'd be happy to organise (if anyone is up for co-organising.. or if I have a lovely Swap Mod to make sure I stay on track Cheesy)

Incase anyone is a little unsure what it is.. this is how the August one worked and I probably wouldn't change much..
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187185.0

There's only a few more days of August left.. so I'd probably want to get sign-ups up very soon.. so those born in the start of the month can enjoy presents close to thier actual birthday Cheesy
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / DINO-MITE! 18th birthday card on: August 11, 2007 05:06:16 AM
It was my fellow gymnastics coaches 18th birthday not long ago.. We never do anything overly expensive for one another.. for x-mas he got me a whole bunch of stickers and we both thought they were hilarious. They were really cute and had images of cartoon animals on them with cheesy captions.. so I incorporated his fav into a b'day card for him.. hope you like.. it's very much his style..

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 21st Birthday Cards; Vintage/Retro/Victoriana on: August 11, 2007 04:25:17 AM
I make heaps of cards.. heaps! But I never get around to taking pictures (hence I don't get around to posting pics!). So I've decided to be more proactive and take pics before I give them away.
I have a few 21st birthdays coming up, so these are some cards I've made so far (with some awesome ephemera I received from teamwang not long ago!)..

The first one has a chidlren's book image, buttons and you can't really see inthe pic, but I liked to finish cards with stamp ink just smudged along them edges.
The second one was a few different types of paper- Happy Birthday is stamped onto some homemade paper and the flowers in the centre are a bit raised and textured. There are some buttons and a little fairy charm thing (that I think used to be on an old ring I had).
 


Comments welcome! Cheesy

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Limit After 25 Participants? on: July 08, 2007 06:36:35 PM
Hi,
I was just wondering if there is a limit on the amount of swappers after 25 or if it's up to my discretion? Obviously trying to keep tabs on 100 people with one co-organiser isn't exactly plausible, but this is my first time organising and the swap has filled up really fast (20 participants in 2 days!)- if there isn't an existing limit, what would the mods recommend?
