Awesome! Thank you for the speedy, same-day service on that, neverseenblue!

My group is spread out all over the U.S., which I think is very cool...At some point I will hear the name of a far-away town randomly and be able to think, "Hey, I crafted for someone from that town!"   Smiley

Adelante, mujeres! Andale, pues!

(I just feel like using upside-down exclamation points and writing in spanish today. I was voicing my agreement, just for a quick translation)

I'm in...An embroidered or needlepoint or fabric calendar sounds delicious, now that it's been mentioned; I might give it a shot. But since I have more paper than anything else, most of my pages will probably be paper-based and mixed-media.

I wonder whether we will be split into the two groups arbitrarily, or if there's a big enough split in everyone's likes/dislikes to do a division that way? Or perhaps if there aren't enough people, then a split of the really busy people into a group of 12 and the not-as-busy into the "deficient" group for a little extra work.
Also, if the swap doesn't get up to 24 people, I would have no problem doing some bonus pages; here's how I see it: Say we have 22 people in the end; then we divide into 2 groups of 11, and set aside one month, like July, that isn't assigned to one person...Then everyone does their assigned month, and when we mail them out, we also send along a July page to one person in their envelope (who sends that July page to whom would be decided before the mailing date).
Just some thoughts. This will be a fun project.

Rough time for lots of folks...sorry to hear it. Crafting and craftstering helps keep my head above water in all of my own mess because it keeps me busy, distracted and feeling productive, even though I'm completely detached from the "real world" and not productive in the societal point of view.
3277  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Voice Recordings in Greeting Cards?!?! on: October 16, 2007 04:18:51 PM
I need some of those things too -- thanks for the info. My hope is to get some of those and record voices from old home movies, of now-deceased family or those of us who were little and are now adults, and insert them in scrapbooks with the pictures of those people. I think it would be a nice multimedia experience, though perhaps a little creepy, hearing the voices of the dead when you turn the pages...Anyway, I'm glad to know these devices really are out there to acquire.
3278  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: the dreaded 'S' word on: October 16, 2007 11:52:55 AM
Yeah, I was just being facetious about that, after the comments about good pictures being a sign that something is for sale. Which I don't agree with at all. I would hope that the advice wouldn't actually be taken. I should have included an emoticon --  Tongue  !
3279  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: the dreaded 'S' word on: October 15, 2007 10:27:46 PM
Jumping into the ring, even though no one's posted for over a month. And my apologies, I'm just a leeeengthy writer by nature...I'm still far from mastering the short-and-sweet internet style.  Smiley

The aggravation, I think, lies herein: How do you approach Craftster.org when you log on, and for what purpose do you log on? Is this your "bloc of potential customers", or your "group of friends"? What are your intentions: to learn/share, or to sell? Business brings out the worst in some people, like a kind of social darwinism. There are plenty of members here who have etsy shops and do craft fairs and whatnot who are absolutely awesome and don't let entrepreneural aggression overshadow their love of making stuff or their friendly creativity. There's nothing here to even be angry about , when one's intentions are correct.

And I hope that anyone who would curse at a moderator for a PM error notification is not a long-standing craftster-community member, and promptly goes away. It's not deserved, and I'm sure you Mods know to "take it all with a grain of salt," but I'm trying to emphasize here the difference between those who come here to learn and share, and those who are pissed that a free advertising prospect fell through. Getting blasted by the latter shouldn't mean as much. I support our moderators  Kiss

For sellers: if you're suspicious that something you see on craftster is for sale even if it doesn't say so, here are my suggestions:
1. Let it go - it is not your problem.
2. If it doesn't have a tutorial or list of materials,etc, reply with a question about how they made it or about some detail of the construction. If they already put that kind of info into their post, then cool!, that's what craftster is about.
3. Consider whether you're mixing your craft-business with your craft-pleasure a bit too much, and remove your craft-business lenses when viewing Craftster postings.
4. There is probably somewhere on the Sellers' Boards where you can rant about the issue with other people in your shoes.
5. The super-nice photography comment seems to be an issue of, "If I can't do it then why should they get away with it?"  So, become the Craftster Ad-Police! If the super-photographer has a shop posted in their signature, go to it and see if the item really is for sale. Then, if so, flag the post for the moderators to check up on. And then let it go - it is not your problem.

Hello, I'm Heather. I am claiming simplyfussfree for writing-themed crafts for her sister. This is my 2nd claim, none sent yet.

I like reusing and recycling, and anything in this list can be pre-used (except the padsyech). I dont own a sewing machine because even the simplest model out there is too complex and frustrating for me, somehow, so thats why there so much sewing stuff on my list. I am vegetarian, left-handed, non-pierced, am sensitive to smoke, and would prefer no fur or animal skin. Theres other info on my preferences and dislikes in my profile, too.

- Reusable cloth menstrual pads (making these with reclaimed fabric is okay, giving me reusable pads that have already been used is not. Thats probably self-explanatory, but I just want to cover my bases.)
- Reusable cloth grocery bags
- Other cloth/reusable items to take the place of disposable stuff
- Hand-held spindle or other small, portable device for spinning (doesnt have to be homemade, its just much more affordable that way). With or without DIY kit/roving I am an absolute novice
- Hippyish recon clothing (PM for measurements)
- Sandals made from tire tread, Im womens U.S. size 7.5-8
- A snood
- Wallet small enough to fit in back pocket of pants
- A waterproof bumper sticker that says I dont want to listen to your music any more than you want to listen to mine. (Please share the respect) with an image of some goofy person with an instrument, like Lawrence Welk and his accordion
- Clothing in the style of the 1910s-40s daywear and dancewear over formalwear, since I'm too old for proms and too obscure for the Oscars.
- Wraparound pants like these: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161380.0
- Bag for doggy-bags, with this kind of imagery but not blingy: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196595.0
- Rug/floor-mat made from used plastic bags
- Knit/crocheted wrist-warmers or fingerless gloves, or the same idea except for the feet instead

- I dont know what theyre called, but the little devices that can record short sound-bites to be replayed when a greeting card is opened. Know what Im talking about? Either greeting cards that have those devices, or the devices by themselves.
- A deckle/frame for papermaking
- Opalescent or other metallic/shimmery embossing powder, ink, or paint
- Set of Gelly Roll pens, including at least a few metallic-inked and other fancy ones
- PVA glue

- Tapestry/fabric of Indian, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or SE Asian design old saris, for instance. Used or torn is fine.
- Books about Tasha Tudor (not the actual childrens books shes written, but books about her and her lifestyle itself)
- Books about book-making, creative writing, journaling or journal-making, scrap-papercraft, altered imagery, artists books/journals, and/or the therapeutic use of any of these
- Books about becoming less of a consumer and more of a DIY-er, affordably
- Books about things we can make, do, or change that are therapeutic to the soul and spirit
- Vintage Fisher-Price Little People playground equipment
- Any pieces for 1960s Mystery Date or Mary Poppins boardgames
- Used, non-Disney DVDs about animals i.e. March of the Penguins, Milo and Otis, PBS, Charlottes Web, Animal Planet, BBC. Can be for any age group or audience, prefer live-action over animated.

Thanks for looking!   Let me know if you have any questions!  Smiley
