Swap name: Lyrical Inspiration Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: teddybearbones
Sign-up date range: june 25 until jul 10
Date to send item by: july 31

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

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? please get permission if under 18.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: yes

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: yes



Details of swap:

This is a smallish swap. You are only required to make one large item and one small item, or three small items. We are taking inspiration from our partner's favourite lyrics and making them some neat fun stuff from it. The way it goes is you list 5 (or more) of your favourite songs for lyrics (the words) who they're by and such, then list the lyrics. Please remember to change colour, or font style (so that the names and lyrics are easy to differentiate) for each song when you fill out the form. Please also write them out, or copy them in verse form (like you'd see them on your CD cases) instead of a block of text.

How it would work is:

I've got Bobna as my partner her favourite songs are:

1. Sad Lisa -- Cat Stevens
2. Suzanna -- Jim Croce
3. Gold Dust Woman -- Fleetwood Mac
4. Time After Time -- Cyndi Lauper
5. Sonne -- Rammstein

(..and her lyrics are listed underneath in matching colours so I know which one is which and where one starts and the other ends..)



I decide to make her three small things:

I get the idea to stencil a T-shirt with a blazing sun from Sonne (which is all about destructive fire and light from the sun..)

Gold Dust woman inspires me to make her a Spoon Bracelet ("Take your silver spoon, dig your grave")

Time After Time inspires me to make her a nice mixed paper journal ("Flashback, warm nights.. all that's left behind.. a suitcase of memories..")

Then I toss in some candy because I do that, and send it off ;]
...

Oh, man, I thought I was totally set to send in my information, had my info typed out and everything, but then I looked at my top 25 most played songs on itunes and realized there are two more songs that I wonder if I should use instead.  Decisions, decisions!

sissychrissy - isn't that the hardest part?  I debated a long time on a fifth sone.  I knew immediately what the first 4 would be, but the fifth one took a long time to decide.

I wish that we could see the songs everyone chose even if they aren't our partner.  It'd be so neat to see what people chose as five of their favorite songs!
