I have an idea for the US-only swap. Since it's hard to send food internationally, maybe we could do a sweets/recipe raffle. You'd win a tasty treat, plus the recipe so you can try it yourself. Whaddya think?

(I think you could match vegans or veggies together. And if someone's not that into sweets, maybe you could do a salty snack instead?)

And I *had* an idea for this in general, but I've forgotten it... Roll Eyes  It'll come back soon. Sigh.

I love this idea!

FOCR Round 1 was a TOTAL success!  Any other ideas for round 2?  I hope to be starting up another round by the end of July Smiley

I have some ideas!

~ Coffee/tea theme
~ Stuffy/plush theme
~ Craft-your-own-favorite-animal theme
~ Kitchen stuff theme

I also like the color idea! It could be like the Favorite Color Swap, but you'd get the other person's favorite color. Or we could all do the same color.

Can't wait for another round!

I had a kitchen/housewares idea too Smiley  Great minds think alike!

On the color theme, I think each crafter could choose their own fave color and craft around that color, then all crafts go in for the raffle again just like this time.  It would not be a 'raffle' swap if I matched people up on the fave colors that way...then they would KNOW for sure who they were crafting for and that would take all the fun out of the raffle, IMO  Wink

OK, another question...does it work to stick with ONE MEDIUM ITEM for the swap?  Not too much work, but then it's also not so small that it seems not enough?  The 'Goldilocks Swap'...it's just right! 

Butt serisously...lol...*ahem*  No really, seriously, is one medium item a good place to be at on this?  I had no issues coming up with the equivalent to 1 medium item....thoughts?

Medium seems great! And I love all things that can be realated to Goldilocks! (more because I'm a Astronomy nerd and the star that could sustain life on a planet can not be too hot or too cold....lol)

Ideas I had were: Animals, ATC, Jewelry, and i think my best idea is a Creativity 350 one, where we would either swap things that are eco friendly, recycled, or spreads the word about the number 350 and what it means. For people who don't know what I'm talking abotu yet, here is the craftster link

I think the medium size is perfect.  
I like the idea of a color themed swap where everyone swaps the same color/colors.  That way no one can end up with something in a color they really hate.  It also leaves it open so that people can craft things they are comfortable with and no one gets left out since they can't craft a certain item.
I also like the robot, cupcakes, recycled items, and holiday ideas.
My ideas are a swap my state/country swap.
I like the sweets and recipe swap and building on that what about a your fave recipe book/box swap?
