Swap name: Unique Name Swap - 2nd Edition


Craftster member who is organizing this swap: buglake
Sign-up date range: closed
Date to send item by: 8/8/2007

Details of swap:
Personally, I have never had a single thing with my name on it.  Never!  Since I am clearly not alone, it's time that we uniquely named crafty folks make great things for each other!

This swap is for all of us who never had anything personalized as a child.  Participants will personalize crafted items for their partner.  You must send one big item and 2 small items, or 3 small items, but if you want to send out more stuff, you are welcome to do so.

And yes, you can join if you do have a common name like Mary or Angela, because we can still personlize for you, too.

As I said above, I have never owned anything with my name on it (unless I've made it myself in the last few years).  And oddly enough - I keep looking at those touristy displays looking for my name...but it'll never be there! 
My parents are German immigrants to the states, so I got the Teutonic German name of Birgitta (beer-gee-tta). I go by Gitta to friends, but use my full name professionally.  People expect me to be a large older fat German lady with a slight mustache - but rather I'm a young alterno chick.

I've even checked the name racks in stores in Germany AND STILL haven't found my name!  The more common spellings are Brigitte, and dreaded forms for the horrid name Bridget.  Call me Bridget (or worse my mothers name, Birgitt) and I know you are no friend of mine.

I would really like to join this swap! Hopefully I'll get feedback from my first swap in time to sign up for this one.

My name is Sari, and NO, it isn't short for Sarah. The only time I ever found something with my name on it was when I was in Hungary, but even then it had an accent over the 'a'.

I might join this for my brother...his name is Ross. We can never find anything with his name on it either. We find Russ, but not Ross. How many people do you know with the name Russ?!
Anyway, would it be 'legal' for me to sign-up for him if I so choose? Smiley

Sure! 
You can sign up to swap, but request the received swap package for someone elses' name.  Just make sure that you answer the questionnaire with Ross' tastes, colors, etc., but that the communication name and address is yours.

I'll join! I never did a swap before. There are rarely any items with the name "Cheryl" Spelled correctly.

By the way, my name is Star. Well, it's my middle name (I'm called by that), but my real name is Alicen. Pronounced like Allison.

I'm tempted. My name is ElizabethGrace, but not even my mother calls me that. If I were to join, I'd probably have stuff personalized for my nickname, Lizzy- I always see it spelled ie, never with a y.
