Swap name: Ongoing Offer What You Have (Crafts or Supplies) Swap - May08
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: calluna
Sign-up date range: the full month of May
Date to send item by: within 2 weeks of being claimed
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? All ages, but permission and ability to post pics and mail items in timely fashion are required for under-18 swappers.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- 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 - thank you purpleone!!


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- 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
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
If you a) have crafts lying around that you've made
    or  b) want to de-stash supplies or
    or  c) enjoy making things for other people
...then this swap is for you! It's a lot like the Ongoing Wish Swap, except instead of posting what you want to receive, you'll post what you want to give.  To join you must have at least five things that you have made/would like to make/want to trade.

This is an ongoing swap, feel free to join up at any time this month! To join, first send a Personal Message to organizer calluna with the following questionnaire info. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something from the most recent list posted, and then post your own list.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have readymade or details of supplies you wish to offer):


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.  http://craftster.org/swapsinfo.html

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted, and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month, if Craftsters decide to organize a new round at that time.

At the top of your claim post, state how many claims you have made this month, and how many of those are outstanding (i.e. the recipient has not yet received the item). If you can do it in this format to differentiate between things you are claiming to receive, and things being claimed from you (sendouts), that would be awesome!

Claims:4
Claims Allowed (Outstanding):3
Sendouts Not Sent:1
Sendouts Sent:2
Sendouts in Transit:1
Sendouts Received:1

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round:
Friend of Craftster: Three (become a Friend of Craftster!)
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

This is how many pending at a time you may have. As soon as one of your packages is received then you may claim again.

Your list of offerings: if your list stays up for more than 48 hours before someone claims from it, you must add something to it. You can also allow claimers to add more items together to make a claim (i.e. they don't seem to be biting on your earrings, so now they can take two pairs for a single claim instead of just one.) If you are having trouble coming up with stuff to add, consider offering a small item to be custom made for the person who claims from you. This can be conditioned on using stash items if you wish. Remember that it must be something that you can complete in two weeks, unless your partner agrees otherwise.

 Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  Please contact the organizer by personal message when you send the package and when you receive a package so everyone gets credit.

ALSO: Please make sure to post to the discussion thread so you stay up on any updates! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223906.0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country.

Check out the previous rounds if you need help figuring out the scope of what to put on your list. It is typically in the $5-$15 range, from a half a yard to a couple yards of fabric depending on weight and fanciness, crafted accessories, grab bags of yarn, beads, buttons and notions, things of that nature.

Photos and the Gallery:
Whenever possible, include pictures of the items you're offering in your posts. When you receive, it is important for you to thank your partner, be courteous and communicative, but a lot of the items are premade or stash, so posting pictures in the Gallery isn't crucial. The exception to this is when something is custom-made for you in this swap. And if you make something with supplies you receive in this swap, we want to see it!

Delivery Confirmation numbers are mandatory for people in the U.S. sending to other people in the U.S., and everyone else must keep their receipts.

This round of the swap will close around midnight, on the official Craftster clock, May 31. Feedback will be given on June 1st for all participants who have no pending claims. Everyone whose packages haven't been received will get feedback once the package reaches its destination.

Reminders/Summary:
1. Make sure to PM both me and who you sent to when you send out, with DC number if you are both in US.
2. Make sure to PM both me and who you receive from when you receive.
3. As soon as you claim something from someone, shoot them a PM with your address so that they have it and don't have to chase you down later.
4. Lets keep this swap moving, try to stay on top of adding new things/combining items into one claim if your list stays up more than a couple days.
5. Post pics in the gallery if someone makes you something custom or you make something from supplies you receive. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137907.0
6. Lets try to keep this thread for lists as much as possible to save on confusion. If your list is up, you may post a "bump" after you have added something new/combined your items, but otherwise please try to post all questions/comments/requests/whatever into our  discussion thread

Here's my list, to get things rolling. I'll be adding more pictures and editing.

I am in California and I dabble in all kinds of arts n crafts, and I have a terrible time turning down second hand art/craft supplies if I might be able to use or swap them. Im in a non-smoking house with a dog.

Claims this month: 0
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 0
Sendouts in transit: 0
Sendouts received: 0

My list:

For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- large stencil of cows and barnyard

-2 floral oval rubber stamps

- partial skein of light lavendar "Nice 'N Nubby" yarn
http://happy.hermit.heather.googlepages.com/yarn.jpg

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes 
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/openhouse.jpg

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comeswith envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.   
http://happy.hermit.heather.googlepages.com/wheel2.jpg
http://happy.hermit.heather.googlepages.com/wheel1.jpg

- Foam bear stamp
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_1230.JPG

- Small glass paints in multiple colors, from beginners kits, with an applicator. Ill include the instructions from the original pseudo-stained glass kit.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1124.JPG

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though: 
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1303/1326838546_cfbb245e18_m.jpg

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says Excelente! / Excellent! and the other says Bueno / good

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773scan0111.jpg

- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.



Or, pick any TWO of the following:

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.
- small star-book, ala
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_0927.JPG Can be in any color of your choosing.

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- large rubber stamp with pixilated image of a sunset over water

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/school.jpg

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together. 
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773stickers.jpg

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980. 
Front:

Back of package: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773muppet2.jpg

-  6 vials of ooold embossing powder (copper, gold, silver, red, blue, and green):
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1128.JPG  http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1129.JPG

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1154.JPG
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1162.JPG

- unopened package of Regency cross-stitch fabric / aida cloth, 14 count. 1 piece, oatmeal-color, 15x18, 100% cotton. I have 3 of these.


Or pick ONE:

- grab-bag of random rubber stamps

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesnt get as hot as it should.

- Flat Rate box full of vintage ephemerawill definitely tailor the package to your likings.

- set of big molded crayons

- Hardcover recon journal with standard glue-binding. Examples of book covers coming soon.

- Hardcover, sewn recon journal

- a Jar of Whimsies

- Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:
http://www.sculpey.com/Products/products_ezdoll.htm

- Food stamps box of small rubber stamps with images of fruits and vegetables.

- set of 8 Mary Englebright rubber stamps. Oh no, Snap out of it, From your secret love, The queen of everything, The princess of quite a lot (those 2 clearly go together), Lifes too mysterious, dont take it serious, and 2 with just the ladies on them and no words.

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1158.JPG
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1159.JPG
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1160.JPG

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long. There's a power outlet down on the left for scale.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1037.JPG

- Very pretty sumi-e painting kit with a book on the topic...I dont have a photo right now but its a green Asian-print case and really nice.

- Vintage childrens book recon to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro childrens theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.

I claim the subway buttons and the stamps!

This is my first claim, of three. 

Thanks!

list:

Choose one:

- One linoleum block (mounted on wood) carved by me, based on a illustration my sister drew of a starving dog.


- One half of a kirigami-a-day calendar, untouched between June and December, with lots of

earlier also untouched pages and instructions.  Can be used as intended, or as origami paper.  That's over 120 pieces of paper.... and there are more colors than I represent here.


-5+ oz merino superwash roving in light blue with colorful noils.


-8 skeins of peach Unger "fluffy."  100% acrylic, but really quite soft and, yes, fluffy.  (it's about a US 4 needle size, though they recommend 6 on the label)


-one lot of fake fur, a little more than a fat quarter of both:



Or pick three:

-one random assortment of odds and ends for spinning.  It's got bleached and unbleached flax, 1-2 oz of very dark green alpaca roving, a number of unlabeled things, a small amount of something pink, and something teal, and some tencel.  It smells of smoke! (I don't smoke, but this came from someone who does, apparently.)

- Opened and used baby bedroom decor patterns MacCall's 8373 - I made only the ruffle and the bumper, and everything should still be in the package. 


- lot of sticky-backed foam letters.  This is just a sample of the font and the colors.  There may be more colors, but in the neon vein.  Seriously, I have many, many of these, about 1 inch high.


- half an ounce of angora fiber, for blending and spinning.  It's grey.

I claim astormorray for 5+ oz merino superwash roving in light blue with colorful noils.

I'm in Michigan and have a dog that occassionally visits my craft room.

CHOOSE ONE ITEM

Loteria Notecards - Set B
Comes with white envelopes



Origami paper
4 sheets of each style, total of 64 sheets. Large sheets are 6"x6", small sheets are 4.5"x4.5".



Strung beads
I think these are seed beads? First picture shows more accurate color, but it's still a little off. They look more jewel tone in person.

I lost the packaging for the findings, so I'm unsure of the metal. The miniature domino tiles are approximately 0.5" x 1.25". Mahjong earrings not available!

Delicate earrings; sterling silver earrings (unknown metal for watch gears)



Cup cozy made from handspun yarn
2x2 ribbing on this cup cozy makes it stretch enough to fit pretty much every cup. Made with some of the lovely handspun yarn I received from sewknitter!



Set of birdie stitchmarkers
Shown on size 8 needles.



Scrapbooking fibers




CHOOSE THREE ITEMS (or two items and one from the choose two list)
Needle roll
