Well, I'll be giving some partial rolls and packages myself, but it's all clean and good condition. Sometimes you use a few sheets of paper, but never finish the pack, or maybe use a little of the yarn for a project and have a lot left you'll never use. It'll still be a box full of supplies for someone to play with.

Very nifty stuff. Everything is so cool! I wish I'd had the time to join this swap, but I am so stalking for ideas and inspiration. (And hoping that there is a round 2  Grin )
The pot maker is adorable. By any chance do you have a link on making pot makers in general? Are the pots just made from paper? I'd much rather make my own than buy anything plastic. Thanks!

Oh, I've always wanted a doll house/fairy cottage, too-and I'll be 51 this year, so there! But yeah, it's the lack of space more than anything that's holding me back. One of these days....
So looking forward to this swap! Yeee!!!

Moonlitsun, the papers in my stash are on the thin side for the most part-stuff that I thought I would scrapbook with. Asian stuff is a little patterned paper, new squares of wrapping paper, and I think a calendar I kept just because I thought I'd frame the prints, maybe a bit more. And you like to paint? I can throw in a few paint brushes. I grab them whenever I can get them on sale, just so I can have a variety of sizes. I have not let lack of talent stop me from messing about with paint occasionally. Grin 

Oh, and for the misc. sewing cross stitch ect. box, I just found a book of fabric samples-kind of like a wallpaper book? Around 20 or 30 squares of heavy fabric, some are the same design but in different colors. I'll keep a few squares I'm fond of, and pass on the rest. I'll pass on some of my embroidery floss, too.

You're right, Sugaree, I am a silly girl! The thought of having a stash of keys quite turned my head.  Grin Very well then. What can I do with a few old computer mice?

Ooh, that would be nifty. There's just something about reworking stuff that is such fun!
If you aren't assigned me, maybe I can swap you something for them later?

"What can I do with A TON of keys?  I have old car keys, heavy machinery keys, house keys, lockbox keys, you name the key, I've got it! Except skeleton keys which are the coolest...Sad but I want to be able to do something awesome with them!"

You could send them to me!  Grin
Make a wind chime. It would look nifty and sound pretty, too. Use them as stamps-coat with paint and make neat designs on paper, or put some under the paper and emboss with them. Make jewelry, I'd do that. Necklaces, brooches, hair clips. Cover a small box with them.
You lucky person, you.

I'm down as a giver for paper stuff. Might do for scrapbooking, atc's, ect. Plain and patterned paper, a few paper punches and stamps and ink pads. Epherma-stuff like calendar art, images from magazines, a few small sheets of asian wrapping paper that I saved to do something with, odd stuff like that. Also a few blank books that would be good to alter for journaling. I have found that while I like the odd bit of decoupage and paper mache, I will never do scrapbooking.
And giving a box of misc. sewing stuff. Some  cross stitch and embroidery supplies-I don't have the patience or the eyesight any more-some fabric ribbon and crochet thread, misc. notions, a book or two, a little fabric. None big enough to sew clothes or anything, but smaller pieces, might be fine for teesha moore or mini quilts or bookmarks and such.
I have weird odd supplies that I could tuck into either box, if my partners like. Like those flat glass marbles, I have a bag of blue and green ones. Or the odd roll of yarn.
Both boxes will resemble something filled by a magpie, i.e. a little bit of a lot of different things, but they'll be full!
And I'm in as a needer for jewelry stuff. Heck, if you just had old broken junk jewelry to clear out, I'd squee! Taking things apart and reworking them is fun. Still learning, but love the pretties, and too broke to hit the craft stores at the moment.
Anyway, hope someone wants to partner with a magpie!

There's a book called Tease, which is all about reconstructing t-shirts. And something I remember seeing for using the tshirt sleeves is using them to make sachets. Just fill with stuffing and something that smells good, and stuff them in drawers, or in shoes.

I like your idea of using a bangle bracelet as the base of a pendant! I'm going to steal this. Clever. And that's a great tree. Nice wire wrapping!
