To prepare for Christmas next year, I'm starting a craftalong unswap so we can all work on crafts throughout the next year. Work on your projects throughout the year, and keep them for Christmas, so you won't be stuck without a gift for aunt Sally. Every month is themed, although you can feel free to subsitute, although it'd be cooler if you didn't.

Here are the themes...

JAN  Scarves/Hats
FEB  Ornaments
MAR Blankets
APR Decopage
MAY Book/Journal
JUN Candles
JUL Bedding (embroider, make pillows, etc.)
AUG Jewelry/Book Thongs
SEP  Jordy/Messenger Bags
OCT  Clothing Iron-On/Stencil/Screen Print/Dye
NOV Soap
DEC Magnets

You must post at least once a month with progress, and pics of your finished projects would be cool, too.


Anyone who wants to join the Craftalong Unswap, email tap_panga-subscribe@yahoogroups.com . Thanks!

Sign up each month will close on the 15th for that month. Feel free to sign up after the 15th, but you should wait until the beginning of the next month to start crafting.

C'mon peeps! Don't go through this last minute, "I've got 20 scarves left to knit" craziness next year!

If no one actually swaps, why to people have to sign up?

Well, I can't speak for Tappanga, but when I organized my craftalong, it was for accountability purposes.  We all know people (me included) that have every intention of finishing project X, Y,  Z, however, if 40 of their closest craftster friends are there pushing them along, they are far more likely to finish.  For instance, I've been wanting to learn to knit for the last 4 months or so...have I?  No.  Am I going to next month, when 40 other craftsters and I are going to knit scarves....you bettcha!

i'm in too however i don't think i'll be making soap...couldn't their be monthly "themes" like jan: yarn projects Feb: bath stuff March:  paper i dunno.

but eithe way i'm still in! i have a long list of things i want to do for next year (couldn't sleep last night) and want to get started asap even if i'm not "crafting along" with anyone i'd still like to see your projects and gleen some encouragment from you all!

My goal is to have  a lot of the "big stuff" started or finished before April when I'm going to be giving birth to baby number 2!!!

In that case, can we join month by month?  Huh

Its a year long, but if you want to do it month to month, that's fine. The only problem is you'll get reminder emails for every month. No big deal, just ignore them.

xkar: Got ya. Thanks!

Why sign up if no one swaps? So I can send you reminder emails. And what 706 said. And just so I know if anyone even cares about this.

abinka: Got ya! Thanks!

jay: I tried to make it as broad as I could without making people think, "Wait, what the hell are we making this month?" As I said in the original post, you can subsitute anything you want. And I've got you down. Thanks!

indigo: You can sign up month to month, but as I said, I'll be sending reminder emails to everyone, so you'll get them all. Just sign up once and I'll have you in, and you can pick what you want to do. No big deal.

Did I forget anyone? Wink
