5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Doctor Who on: February 15, 2008 12:45:55 PM
I'm sure a ton of these have been done before. Anyone up for another? And shhh, no spoilers, I haven't seen the most recent season. (Of course, this could be for any season, any Doctor, and any side-kick.)
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Favorite color swap, round whatever on: February 11, 2008 05:07:21 PM
I know a bunch of these have been done before, but they are always fun. And it's so open-ended that you can use whatever crafts you are most comfortable with to create a swap package for your partner. Any interest?
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The Tudors on: February 11, 2008 02:59:26 PM
Any interest in a Tudors swap? I'm thinking about the Showtime show, but also anything to do with Tudor history - Henry VIII, any of his six wives, 16th century England, etc.

****Swap Closed****

Swap name: January / February Birthday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: frenchnewwave
Sign-up date range: Jan. 3 - Feb. 29
Date to send item by: Must send within 2 weeks of picking a partner

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? no

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, if you are under 18 please get your parents permission. 

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Everyone has to be pre-approved for this swap!

Details of swap:
Happy Birthday to us! This is a January and February birthday swap. Post a list and get a birthday pressie! You can ask for supplies or handmade items. You will also need to let people know where you are located: city, state & country. You need not post your age, but please let us know your birthdate.

HOW
First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted. You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire, I will tell you that you can post a birthday list.

This is not like the other claim swaps- such as OWS where you must pick again to repost your list. In this swap, you post your list once and it will stay there for craftster to scroll through at will. I will be updating the sending/receiving list rather frequently, so if you are unsure who to craft for, that might give you a better idea 

BASICS:
- To be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- There must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- Once you have picked someone to craft for, you can be picked as many times as there are items on your list. (To make sure things are fair though, the organizers retain the right to restrict people's lists if they are receiving a significant amount more than they are giving).
- You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things. If you have picked 3 people to craft for, you must send at least one of those items successfully before picking again.
- If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
- Please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number/receipt/proof when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- Regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive.
- You can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!

FOR THE FIRST 5 WHO SIGN UP:
If you are one of the first five who sign up, you may post your list without claiming someone beforehand if you wish (this is to get the list rolling). You will need to claim someone before the swap is over, however. It's only fair! This has been approved by the moderators.


If you were not born in January or February, you may still craft for somebody if youd like to, however they are not bound to craft for you in return. That being said...

If you receive a gift from anyone in this swap, it is polite to mail a thank you note/card/letter. Also post pictures of your received items in the gallery- or let your partner know beforehand if you don't have a camera/scanner, so that their work can be appreciated.

When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list so that other swappers know what is available.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: January / February Birthday Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Who are you claiming and what will you send?:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE. Please put January/February Birthday Swap in the subject lines of all of your PM's regarding this swap! Please send all PMs to frenchnewwave.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

10  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Fluffy Cuff Mittens - without the fluff, and with a snowflake on: January 03, 2008 07:13:19 AM
Here are the mittens I recently finished. I did a contrasting 2x2 rib instead of the fluffy cuff because I'm not really a fluffy kind of girl. I also embroidered a snowflake on the top of each because I thought they looked a little plain without.

Note: these come out sort of large. I have small hands, so I started the top decreases about an inch early.
