NOTE- I will have a co-organizer for this swap. Please PM both of us with all questions and info. From August 4-14th RubyTuesday will be in charge of the approvals, so wait for a response from her before you post your list.

Swap name:  Ongoing Wist swap for August
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Bobolink
Sign-up date range: The end of August 7/31/06
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope... the more the merrier
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parents
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES
All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE UNLESS YOU PM AND Co-organizer RubyTuesday AND one of us ADDs YOU TO THE LIST!

DETAILS:
This is swap is similar to The 2006 Wishlist March Swap PLEASE read all
the details before you join. This is a Wist Swap so in order to participate you
need to create one at Wists.com. This swap is for fellow craftsters to make
stuff you love but can not make yourself.

TO START :
You will look at the Wists of the people who have already
been approved 

THEN:
Once you have chosen someone you must send me and RubyTuesday a message
telling me who pick and what you will be making them.  When i receive your
message, you must wait for my response letting you know it is ok to
post your link and a little blurb about you, make sure to include the country
you live in for those who do not want to ship out side of their own. Only
approved swappers can post a Wist link. This swap is no longer secret, although you can keep what you are sending a suprise if you wish. Feel free to contact your partner directly with questions and for their address- re the format of wish swaps.

Last but not Least:
You will then can start crafting the item Items must be sent out within
two weeks of selection

Now here are some other rules you need to follow
- to be able to post your link you have to craft for at least ONE person
- you must have AT LEAST 6 items on your Wist ..you can continue to add during the swap
- You can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you get picked a SECOND TIME (note I changed this to keep the swap moving more and be more fair), you must pick another person to craft for if you would like to get picked again (you will be put on hold until you craft again)  I will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.
NOTE- I am adding two changes to previous versions of this swap. You have to craft again after being picked twice not three times and I'm not going to keep the partners secret. That aspect seemed kind of pointless and unnecessarily complicated.

ALSO- it was pointed out in the gallery that this is a thread where we make things inspired by other people's designs. If you receive a version of something made by a different craftster, make sure you credit the original craftster too when you post in the gallery. Provide a link to their post or website or etsy shop- of course this goes for very unique things and not say a Panta.

If you have any question feel free to pm me

Remember, to post your link, you must craft for one person

PLEASE PM THE ORGANIZER WITH THE FOLLOWING

The first lists will be people who didn't get picked last round. I haven't PMed them yet, cause I wanted my co-organizer to post the second post so she could have a list on the first page. I hope you don't mind, but once she posts I'll probably delete these two. By tomorrow at least there should be some wists posted to start from.

My wist: http://www.wists.com/Phizzychick

I hope my wist gives you an indication of the things I like, rather than 'I want a copy of this'. Wink Grin

Blurb about me:
HmmIm a 32-year-old art teacher from NW England. I love rock/heavy metal music with a passion and any other music that makes me smile. My dress sense is probably best described as quirky and I dont like to follow trends. I have lots of clothes that fall into both rock and hippy categories! I tend to be drawn to chunky, bold accessories and Im a born hoarder. Ive drawers full of clothes and old jewellery to re-doone dayI love recon clothes but I never seem to get around to them. I really dont get along with pastels, or pinks unless theyre dark or dusky, but I like everything else. I like trees, leaves, the sea, shells, feathers, birds, especially chickens, ravens and crows. Oh, and one look at my wist will tell you I like all kinds of bugs as well!

Thanks in advance for crafting for me, I love anything handmade so you really can't go wrong! Smiley

Hello all! Here's my wist!

http://www.wists.com/botanyhead

I'm so excited to do another round! Hooray!

My profile:
   I'm a 25 year old wife and mommy living in Connecticut. I have one child, an adorable baby boy who was born in April. I am married to a fabulous computer geek. I used to do a lot of theatre, mostly acting. I am from Michigan originally and I have to say that state will always have my heart. I love you Michigan! I love to grow things. I am really into birds, flowers, mushrooms...and general outdoors things. I like to sew, knit, crochet and draw although I'm not amazing at any of them. I also really love to cook and eat and read about cooking and eating; in short I'm a foodie. I also really love to travel. I speak Spanish. I love Prairie Home Companion and historical movies ("Costume Things") and dill pickles. I'm a little crunchy. I like music. I love to read. And I like lots of colors although I'm not much for neons.
