Swap name: Body Appreciation Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Dorkariffic
Sign-up date range: 11/1/06 - 11/15/06
Date to send item by: 12/15/06 12/22/06

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope.

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

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, but if you're under 18, please get permission from a parent/guardian.

- 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 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:
I'm sure EVERYONE has, at some point, been put down because of their bodies, no matter what they look like. This is a swap to celebrate all our bodies - fat, skinny, tall, short, freckled, big noses, thin lips - whatever you think deserves a bit more love.
Possible craft ideas include (but certainly aren't limited to!):
T-shirts, bags, buttons, coin purses, jewelry; anything that can be emblazoned with body-positive pictures and messages.
Mirrors whose frames have positive messages on them.
Art that features people of our body type.
Journals made for recording exercise/diet notes, or more likely, recording thoughts and feelings about our bodies.
Mix CDs with songs like Christina Aquilera's "Beautiful", or Sir Mix-A-Lot's "I Like Big Butts." Cheesy
I'd suggest crafting one "big" item and 2-3 "small" items, but people can talk with their partner and decide if they want to do more or less than that.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

I really really really wanted to be in this swap, but I've got so much on my plate with the holiday's coming that I'm afraid I may have to pass for now.


If things calm down by the end of sign ups I'll go for it. So I'll watchi dilligently!

I knew I was forgetting something in the first post.  Cheesy Embarrassed I'd suggest one "big" item and 2-3 "small" items, but people can talk with their partner and decide if they want to do more or less than that.

A beautiful idea.

Thank you very much!
