21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Silly Santa White Elephant Swap on: November 25, 2015 07:15:34 PM
Hi! Im considering bringing back the White Elephant/Silly Santa Swap for the holidays. Here is the link to the original round: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=207579.0

It runs similar to the raffle swaps, where finished items are offered up-front...Except once the items are assigned to each person, we steal them from each other, back and forth, and it goes around and around for a set period of time. The actual mailing doesnt happen until the very end.

In the previous swap we swapped highly desirable handcrafted goods, but for fun we could make silly or tacky (but well-made!) items instead, like a standard White Elephant swap.  Smiley I'm open to whatever people want to do. This does not require holiday-specific crafting, and I'm thinking minimum 2 smalls OR 1 medium (crafted, or a valuable art/craft supply, if participants agree to it).

It's a swap that runs best with 10+ participants. Let me know if you're interested!

I dropped off due to busy-ness and loss of income, but IMO both styles of the swap were fun!

RovingAnarchist blew me away with the patches she sent...First, gorgeous and elegant Tree of Life embroidery:


And second, she took me up on the gay pinup theme, and she PAINTED it!!!


It's impressively done and also cracks me up. Cheesy Thank you!

I greatly enjoyed the swap!

Sidenote: Within the 2 minutes it took to post the pictures and return to the My Photos page, RovingAnarchist's sailor-boy already had 37 views!

I didn't know I wanted a treehouse patch until I saw this!  Smiley So adorable.

Not yet, but I'm toying with the idea of making a blanket out of my really big patches (I've made some from old t-shirts and other meaningful clothing scraps). These smaller patches tend to be pretty stiff, which wouldn't be very comfortable. A throw pillow cover might be interesting. My favorite uses right now are as book covers and 3-ring binder covers. (I say that like I have made a bunch...In reality I have one book cover and half of a binder cover finished.)

Also, I can't join the new round, but I'll check back in when I can.

I'd like to make a couple more claims, but my financial situation just changed significantly and it's going to be a hectic couple weeks figuring out what to do...So, no more claims from me for now. Sorry about that.    Embarrassed

I received cloth pads, with extra flannel inserts, from plaidpineapple! While I have greatly appreciated (and extensively used) all the pads I've gathered from various Craftsterers, I can say hands down that these are the prettiest...



I've never seen this pattern before; it's super easy to change out the inserts/liners inside, or double up on them if needed! Other sides (with the inserts):



Thank you so much! I'm honestly vacillating about putting them to use because they're so nice to look at.  Cheesy I will, most certainly, use them, but I think I want to save these from my monthly rotation for a while so I can just admire them in their pristine state.   Grin
