1 flaker

You'll need to make 8 cards (with envelopes) that are at least 5x3.75 (the size of Michael's clearance cards).

Kbrison's sign-up:
Favorite colors: Blue, purple, green, cream, white, black, silver
Favorite paper crafting techniques to use: embossing (all styles), layering, die-cutting
Favorite paper crafting techniques to receive: prefer clean, simple lines in any technique (Not a big fan of shabby chic or steam punk both are too fussy for my tastes)
Themes you might like to receive (flowers, robots, etc): Anything involving nature, architectural elements, love texture
Any special holidays or sayings you would like? ("Happy Birthday", "Thanks for Swapping", etc): Thanks, Thank You, Get Well, Congratulations, Thinking of You (for friends not family), blank
Would you like to receive additional cards if your partner is so inclined? That would be loverly, but not necessary (unless, of course, the craft fairy sprinkles you with tons of inspiration dust. In that case it would be rather unkind of me to tell the fairy to go away, now wouldnt it?)
Anything else you would like your partners to know? My Crafts-paper folder on pinterest may give you a better idea of things I like. www.pinterest.com/ancientofdays

I started with a set of green butterfly earrings, and decided to make them mismatched necklaces. I think it makes for a Best Friends Forever effect without making them two halves of a heart.

Details of swap:
I love having cute cards to send with swap packages, add to gifts, or perhaps just to use at art and frame or stick on my french memo board and admire! This should be a fairly simple swap and I think that 3 weeks is more than enough time to craft. Shipping should also be fairly cheap.

Groups will be made up of 3 people, so you will be sending to 2 partners within your group. Send at least 8 cards to each of 2 partners, that is a total of 16 cards. Cards should be at least 5 x 3.75 inches, (the size of Michael's clearance cards if you want to repurpose their envelopes) but can be bigger. All 8 cards should have an envelope.

27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Chinese New Year Altered Puzzle on: February 20, 2013 02:58:19 PM
The Chinese New Year has twelve animals; snake, rabbit, goat, horse, dog, ox, dragon, monkey, rat, tiger, pig, rooster. It also has five elements; fire, water, wood, earth, metal. I placed them all at random, on pieces that seemed to "fit".

Overall (it's about 12 inches by 8 inches) puzzle:

28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pride bracelet on: January 29, 2013 09:43:35 PM
So I originally made this for the I Made A Thing challenge on dreamwidth, in which you show off your fandom in a way that's not art, fic, or podficcing. I picked bandom, and more specifically, a lyric from a Fall Out Boy song. I was going to just keep it there, but on a different thread here I saw someone use the phrase 'that's gay', and so now I'm being passive aggressive by uploading this. I plan to wear it to my next few big family events, as I've worn my knitted gay pride bracelets to them for years now, and they're getting boring.

This is the finished product:


The top half is what it looked like when I was finished stamping it. The bottom half is my first attempt at dyeing it. I made it too dark. Thankfully it's a waterbased dye, so I just got the leather wet and dabbed at it with a paper towel, and some of the colour leeched off.

Details of swap:
A tiny thing is anything that fits into the dimension 4" by 4" by 4". In this swap you'll be making three tiny things based on events or characters of The Avengers. A Fury eye patch, a miniature Captain America shield, a Chituari stuffie- if it fits into 4x4x4 it works for this swap.

Please keep your requests to those that had facetime in the Avengers film, not the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, whether it's past or upcoming films. IE: a Pepper Potts necklace is good, an Antman coffee cozy or a Betty Ross hoopla or Fandral etched mirror doesn't work.

30  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tiny Avengers Swap on: January 14, 2013 09:10:00 PM
I'm interested in running a tiny thing swap with an Avengers theme. I was thinking three things. I was also thinking about doing it ASAP, as I'd like to have things settled well before Ironman 3 comes out. I know that's not until May, but the last swap I ran had flakers which made everything drag on three months. So the sooner the better, in my book.

What I'm not sure of is how much crafting time/sign up time to allot. How much crafting time would you want to make three small but totally excellent things?
