1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Good Eats / Food Network swap? on: December 21, 2009 01:21:25 PM
I've been watching a lot of Food Network lately, and was wondering if folks would be interested in a swap?

Some ideas for swapping would be hand decorated recipe cards; kitchen items (aprons, hotpads, utensil containers, etc); Food Network show themed items (A Good Eats recipe book, or tote bag, etc); or any other related items.

I'll host, starting after the holidays if there's interest.

From her questionnaire:
Quote
Do you have any allergies?
I can't wear jewelry that has any copper content at all.  Sterling silver, stainless steel or gold would be okay.  I'm also sensitive to cigarette smoke.
Do you have any allergens in your house?
I have two dogs, but they're rarely in the same area where I craft.
Whats your favorite Pern novel?
The first one I ever read:  Dragonflight.  I love the White Dragon too.
If you could choose your profession on Pern, what would it be?
Harper, Weaver, or Technician-post AIVAS...so hard to choose
What are your hold colors? (list your favorite colors)
Purple, Lavender, Pink, Blue.  Earthy colors, not pastel or neon.
If you rode a dragon, what color would it be (ignore your gender for an answer to this question)?
Gold-queen.
Do you belong to any Pern writing clubs?
No.
Is there anything you really want?
I have a young daughter ~9 months old.  Something for her would be neat too.
Is there anything that you absolutely do NOT want?
Not really, but feel free to ask me if it's okay if you're not sure I'll like it.
Is there anything else youd like to share with your partner?
Not at this time.
