For all of us who think that the 1950's are the cat's pajamas! The 40's-60's are included in this swap, so if you'd rather do one of those decades,include that in your signup information. Themes we may be crafting: Advertising, pop culture, recipes and cooking, fashion, art, televison,movies, radio and music. If you've got more ideas, post 'em, cats and kitties!


MINIMUM CRAFTING REQUIREMENTS:

1 Big Item
1 Medium Item
1 Small item


If you want to go above and beyond this, feel free, but make sure you tell your partner and make sure it's okay with them, so they don't feel inadequate when they open your package!

-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big= $30 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars

Remember, the important thing is that you and your partner agree.  If you want to make each other a purse for a shawl, go ahead.  Just make sure you're being fair"--super geek, Mod

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Don't forget about all the great mid-century art, architecture & furniture! Who can resist Charles & Ray Eames or Noguchi or Eichler? And also remember all the great fabrics from the 50's...barkcloth, Alexander Girard prints, marimekko... There's the whole modern / space age aspect - like the 'house of the future' and all that goodness too.  Smiley
