6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Help me be Vegan swap. (lets make a cookbook) on: March 13, 2009 12:38:17 PM
So i am really wanting to be a healthy Vegan, and i would love to swap things that would make that possible. Maybe even if we made a vegan cook book. Each person will craft the actual book, and some idea for thier partner, then everyone once else will post thier recipies online and we can copy them into our new books. OR each person has to mail recipies to everyone else in the sway.... but that might be to much work. and i am not sure if we are aloud to do that.
And they can make like one other thing that helps you be a healthy vegan!
Let me know what you think.

Details of swap:

So it is the new year and everyone has goal for what the year is going to look like. So why not help each other out. In this Swap we are asking  people to craft ways to help each other lose weight. This could be making someone a cook book full of healthy eating. Or a notebook to keep track of the exercises you are doing and the food you are eating. Maybe a calendar to keep track of your achievements or a bag to keep your gym clothing in or a yoga mate.  What do you need to help you lose weight?
Sign up this is going to be fun!!
As for the specifics:  this is a  four-point swap .  Swap packages can include any number or size of items as long as they add up to at least 4 points:
3 pts = large
2 pts = medium
1 pt = small

Here are the Craftster guidelines for item sizes:
LARGE:  3 or more hours, $30 or more (a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse)
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet)

These size guidelines are very subjective, so, as always, work with your partner to decide how much to send.  Be sure to agree on the amount of time, money, and effort you want to spend for this swap.    If you or your partner want to make something that requires more time or effort than we usually think of for a large item this point system gives you a little room.  But PLEASE be sure to consult with your partner!   

Throughout the swap, you will be expected to:
* Keep in regular contact with your partner
* PM me and your partner when you send and when you receive.   If you are sending within your own country, you must have a DC# (delivery confirmation number).  Include the DC in your package sent PM to me and your partner.  If you are sending outside of your country and cannot get a tracking number, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping.
* When you receive, post photographs in the gallery

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide for other details about participating in a swap.

Please note that you may not be able to participate in this swap if your swap profile includes:
* ANY negative feedback comments
* poor communication in past swaps
* sending late in past swaps

Also, note that I will begin entering feedback one week after the send-out date.  If you need feedback earlier, please contact me.

If you want to participate, please PM me (SnapsandDrangons) with your questionnaire rather than posting it here.  Please title any PMs for this swap with Help me Lose Weight Swap:  [sign-up / sent / received / question / etc.] THANKS!

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Recycled Stationary (image heavy) on: January 02, 2009 04:27:31 PM
This is a present for my friend Brian.
He wanted some handmade stationary, i decided to make it all from recycled material.
This is everything:


All of the envelopes are made out of pages from magazines,
The pages are all paper bags that have been cut down to different sizes, also every page has a little tree stamp on it


Then i made a bag to keep everything in. And it is made out of plastic bags, there is two pockets on the front for pens, stickers for the To and From, and also wax and a seal with a J on it, which is his last name.



Thanks for looking.
The button i got in a swap from an awesome Talyra
