6991  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Christmas Ornament swap (CLOSED; MAIL BY 9/13) on: August 26, 2007 01:36:34 PM
I am almost done with all of my ornaments, but I keep getting distracted by other things that must get done. I need about an hour to finish them all, I think, and then I can send! I have my address labels all printed out and everything, but I just can't seem to find that hour.

Of course, if I wasn't on Craftster right now... Wink

Details of swap:
Unleash your inner melt-o-maniac! This is the swap where you get to melt random objects to your hearts content and make them into something useful/creative/decorative/all-of-the-above. What kind of random objects? The choice is yours, but it should probably be some kind of plastic (unless you have laser vision or access to an industrial furnace and can melt steel!). Plastic pyromaniacs unite!

You will need to craft 1 large item, 2 medium items and 2 small items (or the equivalent: 2 large, 2 small or 1 large, 3 medium, etc.). Please ship with a DC# and remember to PM me with the DC# when you ship and when you receive. Also, make sure to show off what you receive- feedback will not be given until you have posted the pics of what you have received. If you are not able to take the pics yourself, check to see if your partner can post pics of what was sent.

And, safety firstplease make sure that you do all of your melting with adequate ventilation and proper fire safety. We dont want any melted Craftsters!

My one experience with canned asparagus was unpleasant, which is why I'm leaning towards frozen. And, thanks for the tip on saving some of the marinade from the artichokes for the pasta salad. I hadn't thought of that.  Grin

I feel like two weeks of crafting time is kind of short... but maybe that's because I am a procrastinator, and like to blame my tardiness on not having enough time  Wink...

Hee-hee! I actually was thinking the same thing. But, no matter how long the crafting time is, it seems I'm always down to the wire!

So how does crafting until October 9th sound? That way, it gets us past Columbus Day.

Oooh...that's what I'm going to do, then! School starts on Monday, and I need to start packing a lunch...and eating more veggies. And since I love all of the ingredients you used, it's perfect!!

I wonder if I used frozen asparagus bits if it would solve the problem of the asparagus breaking up? I think Trader Joe's carries frozen asparagus cuts. I'll have to head over there tomorrow and get my ingredients!

Okay, as newbie to swap organizing, I need a tiny bit of input. How long should the sign-up period be? And, about how long after that should the send-out period be?

I was thinking 8/26/07- 9/12/07 for the sign-ups (I think that sweets4ever will be around between her wedding and her honeymoon, so she should be able to sign up).

Then, sendouts by 9/29/07?

In thinking of my own schedule (school starts for me on Monday, new position, new grade level and I am so not ready), this would work out well for me. But, I'm willing to tweak it a bit if folks want...

This sounds yummy! If I hadn't just mixed up a large pasta salad, I'd be headed to the store right now!

I'll have to give it a try when my pasta salad is gone...

This is fantastic! I love how it looks like a designer bag, and yet speaks to the flea-market girl in me!

Nicely done! The details and design are great!
