1951  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Found or recycled items wind chime or Mobile on: March 24, 2011 09:56:35 PM
Hmm..I don't have a good idea on the size question. Maybe just make it a three level item? Small and Sweet, Medium and  Marvelous, or Large and Luscious? (Okay, I get a little silly with the alliteration) And since this is a found and recycled object chime, the main difference would be how elaborate it is, not how much it costs.
Or would that be too complicated? Maybe as long as the chime suits your partner's likes, the size won't really matter?
Ask favorite colors, ask if there's any style they love or hate (the sea, steampunk,  country, whimsical, nature, bright, ect.) or if they just want to be surprised? Me, I'm all for surprise, myself. Using found stuff, it'd be hard to fit a theme, but it'd give you an idea of your swap partner's likes? I dunno...
Ask if they want something they can hand outdoors, or if they would be happy with a less weatherproof but still nifty chime/mobile to hang inside?
And ask if anyone has any wists, ect. to help partners get an idea of what they like.
Ask where would you hang it? In the kitchen, the garden, in a child's room?
Hope this helps! I'm looking forward to this swap.

I received a wonderful package from MizzKodak! It'll take me a couple of days, but I WILL post pictures! She spoiled me. I'm looking forward to using the jewelry supplies, already getting ideas. Thank you so much!

I just got home and found my package from MizzKodak! she spoiled me! Findings, beads, chains, lots of good stuff! Thank you so much, MizzKodak.
I'll take pictures tomorrow, and post in a day or two. I was just given a digital camera, and I need to puzzle out exactly how to upload pictures, but I will do it, neverfear!

Got my car back from the shop. Stupid transmission-grrr! So I'll be boxing up stuff for my needer tomorrow, and it'll go out monday.
And I made one of my thank you gifts today. Things are coming along!

Well, I think I know what to do for my givers-I'll be a busy girl friday! That's my next day off, and my craft day. My car should be back in two or three days, and I'll send out my package for my needer then.
Looking forward to getting glue on my hands!

I sorted through craft stuff today! I need to get a box from work and pack it up now-I'm waiting to see when my car will be back from the shop before I say when I'll ship. Still, should be within a few days. And all I can say is thank god for work perks. I can send up to a 75 pound box anywhere in the U.S. for five dollars FedEx, as long as I don't abuse the privilege. No, OrangeKnickers, you aren't getting 75 pounds worth of goodies. Grin (but wouldn't that be great?)
And I have an idea for what to make for one thank you gift! Off to do more stalking....

 Just got home from a long day at work. Looking forward to filling a box tomorrow! Then, to stalk and craft... Grin

I made a wind chime style christmas ornament for a steampunk swap, and that's what I did. I wrapped each strand in tissue paper. Of course, it was something on the small side, but it made it there untangled.
This sounds like a fun swap!

I keep wishing I could be a good giver in the giver and needers swap, but my package would just be a big jumble of stuff.  From small segments of fabric (I don't think I have a piece that's bigger then 1 meter :*( ) I only have a couple untouched skeins of yarn,  unprocessed fleeces and small chunks of colored roving, a couple handfuls of beads......... I'll try for next time and see if anyone wants a jumbled "try out multiple crafts package....
I know I must be one of the people that gave them problems matching up. My sewing box to give is stuff like 'random small cross stitch kits, crochet thread, some floss, a couple of hoops, small bits of fabric for scrappy projects, a little fabric paint, a couple of craft books....' You get the idea. I had to add 'This is what I have to give if anyone wants a box filled by a magpie'. But I figured getting a box full of odd supplies is better than getting no supplies, and hopefully someone could make use of it.
Do try for next time. Heck, a 'try out multiple crafts' box sounds like fun!
Sigh....I haven't done any crafting besides making a nifty valentine card, and mending a couple of necklaces for my daughter. Hopefully after I've given stuff away and made room, I'll be inspired to make use of the rest.

And if someone is in need of something that hasn't been offered, maybe list it here? There will probably be a thundering horde of folks who just happen to have dozens of them.   Smiley
