351  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / January 2009 Birthday Swap LISTS ONLY--CLOSED on: January 04, 2009 02:04:21 PM
PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE NOT POSTING A LIST (WITH APPROVAL). THERE IS A SEPARATE THREAD FOR DISCUSSION, THIS THREAD IS FOR BIRTHDAY LISTS ONLY

PLEASE READ ALL RULES BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR INFO. SOME RULES HAVE BEEN CHANGED. YES, THIS IS LONG, BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW ALL THE RULES TO JOIN. THERE WILL BE A TEST. REALLY.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR LIST UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A PM SAYING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.

Swap name: January 2009 Birthday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: MareMare

FOR POSTING BIRTHDAY LISTS Sign-up date range:  January 4 January 31
FOR CHOOSING A BIRTHDAY WISH TO FULFILL Sign-up date range: January 4 January 31   
DATE TO SEND ITEMS BY:  2 weeks after you claim someone unless other arrangements are made ahead of time

Limited to a certain number of people?: No.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
You must be 13 years old to swap.

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

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- 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

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

1. This swap is list style, like the Ongoing Wishlist Swap, however it is NOT chain style. You can choose any birthday craftsters list that is posted, rather than only picking the last one.

2. This is a medium item swap. A medium item is defined as a craft or recon etc that takes you two hours to complete OR $20 worth of Store Bought Items. (If bought from a thrift store, estimate at what it would have cost new.) However you may also substitute a few small items for a medium.

3. If your birthday is in January, you can post your birthday wish list for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out and wait for approval.

4. Once you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would like to receive. This is the format for your lists: First post your location and a short bio of yourself, then a list of crafted items you would like, then craft supplies (if any) and lastly you can put a few extras that arent crafted, things like candy or tea. Remember, the more items on your list, the more likely you are to be chosen. The minimum of items to post is 5. Also including your wists is a good way for people to get the idea of your likes and style. If you have any allergies please type them in red in your bio section.

5. Please post lists only in this thread. Discussion can be done here in the combined discussion/gallery thread:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285562.0

 6. Every birthday participant must make at least one claim. You may have up to two claims at a time, and then you can claim again once your items are received (not when you mail out). New swappers may only have one outstanding claim, they may claim again after their first claim is received. Claims need to be made from the "crafted" and "craft supplies" sections of a person's list. The "extras" are just that--extra items you may want to throw in if you are feeling generous, but claims cannot be solely extras. Keep it crafty :-)

7. You may get claimed more than once, but your minimum amount to claim is one.  It is possible you may not get claimed at all. In this case you will not be provided a swap angel; angels are only if you get flaked on. However I do my best to make sure everyone gets claimed by keeping track of how many times each person is claimed. If possible try to pick someone who has been claimed 0 times versus someone who has been claimed 3 times.

8. If it is not your birthday but you would like to send a birthday present out you may do so. Fill out the non-birthday swapper questionnaire and send it to me for approval. Birthday swappers who receive a present from a non-birthday swapper must send a snail mail birthday card. You will not receive feedback until I hear from the other swapper that they have received a thank you card.

9. When you choose to fulfill a birthday wish, PM both me (MareMare) AND the chosen Craftster. At that time, please request the address for where to send it. It is your responsibility to get the address. After you make the claim you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.

10. It is super important for everyone to keep good communication. It is REQUIRED that you PM me when you've sent and of course, don't forget the DC#. It is REQUIRED that when you receive, you PM me and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures). If I do not receive PMs from you when you send and receive, you will be left Poor Communication in your feedback.

11. When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see what has been chosen. It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.

12. If you are sending late you must pm me by your send-out date. If your send-out date comes and goes and you dont pm me, you will receive poor communication feedback. It should not be my job to hunt you down and find out what is going on.

Please make sure to put January Bday Swap or something equivalent in the subject line on all communications. The most important thing to me is communication. Please pm me when you send and receive, and please reply to my pms to you in a timely manner.

354  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Bath and Beauty Challenge--Voting for Theme is Closed on: December 11, 2008 11:50:59 PM
ETA: Voting is now open closed! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287107.0


Hi all! Batgirl and I are trying to brainstorm a challenge for this board. Is there any interest? And if you are interested, do you have any ideas for challenges? I would like it to be as inclusive as possible, but that may be a little hard for a board with such variety. Here's a couple I was kinda mulling over:

*A Packaging challenge. How do you package your soap, bath bombs, make-up, perfume, etc?

*A melt and pour soap challenge, it could be semi-specific (make something that looks like a baked good?) or just wide open.

*A color challenge, use any method to show off your favorite, or maybe a specific color (hair color, mineral make-up, swirled soap, lip gloss)

*A word challenge, throw out a word and see how it is interpreted in various forms (creamy, bronzed, asymetrical, other fun word)

*A "realistic" challenge, I'm sure you've all seen the steak soap on here! Soap that really looks like something else.

Please weigh in with your ideas, or if you particularly love/hate any of these.

There would definitely be prizes for the winner(s)   Grin

357  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Craft Fair At Providence Medical Center Dec 4th-5th on: November 26, 2008 12:57:47 PM
Every year at my work we have a craft fair. All vendors are Providence employees or relatives of employees. There are probably about 35 vendors every year. This will be my 6th year participating! Come by and say hi to Soaps By MareMare!  I'm actually only going to be there Thurs Dec 5, but it continues on Dec 6, I just didn't have enough vacation hours to take Friday off.  The hours are 8-4.

Providence Portland Medical Center
4805 NE Glisan St.

If you park in the Glisan parking garage and walk the sky bridge located on level C of the garage to the main hospital you will run into the craft fair. It is held in the Social Room and Main Hallway, signs are prominent.
358  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / People begging for comments?? on: November 14, 2008 02:21:52 PM
This may be just my grumpiness from a hideous day at work, but is anybody else irritated by people begging for comments? It seems kind of redundant to me, the very act of posting something here on Craftster is to show off your lovely goodies and get feedback right? It seems like I can sit down and look at 5 posts and every single one of them says something like "Please leave comments." Also people in the challenges begging for votes.

I'm just trying to guage interest in a December Birthday Swap, not sure if people will be interested in it with Holiday stuff going on. Then again, maybe December birthday babies need more presents since they might get shafted because of the holidays!

Unfortunately DeviSaya was flaked on for her birthday wish. She was originally picked for pillows and drapes, but you can fulfill any wish off her list you would like! (at least a medium item please)

Here is her info and her birthday list:

O hai, my name is Katie. My birthday is on the 30th and I will be 20. I am currently an Illustration major at a deliciously nerdy school in Rochester. I love all things ridiculous, hilarious, epic, dorky, and insane. I use to wear a lot of black, but now adore bright crazeh colors like neon pinks, blues, reds, and so on. Not a big fan of yellow.

Wish List

-   A cool skirt. At the knees or only slightly above. Anything punk, harajuka, or visual kei inspired. Or something along those lines.
-   The same applies to a jacket.
- Perhaps a pair of pants cause I far too few for this chilly upstate NY weather >_<
-   Speaking of Japanese influence, basically anything Japanese inspired is good with me. Accessories, dolls, candy, whatever. It would most likely received much love from me
-   Anything steampunk
-   A cushioned felt case for my ipod nano. I was thinking along the lines of a simple, stylized rabbit head in cool colors, with buttons for eyes , zipper for a mouth, and any other accessories if need for it. But that just an idea. Any kind of cute yet mildly sinister theme like that works for me.
-   A comforter made of awesome fabric with a pillow case to match...or not match. Whatevz
-   On that subject, three pillow cases the ones on my coach(theyre elongated), and a sheet to brighten up my ugly futon. Keeping up the awesome pattern/fabric theme
- A clingy bed sheet for a massive mattress, also sweet looking. Haha.
-   Spiffy drapes for three windowsOnce again
-   Any sort of cool box or holder of some sort that can hold some portion of my mound of crap in style
-   Basically anything to pimp out my room. Posters, stuff to hang from ceiling, and whatnot would be great. May wanna check out my blog or facebook to get a better idea of what Id like
-   A cute hat: Perhaps something like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=26259. Minus the two side flaps. Preferably red or hot pink with black eyes
-   Anything Emilie Autumn inspired
-   And surprises are teh awesome, yo
