The theme of this round will be "Shades of Blue." Craft ONE MEDIUM item around this color theme. The possibilities are endless! Blues are my FAVE colors right now, so it was SO great that a fellow Craftster suggested this color in their theme suggestion! A great big thanks to elvissatx for this great suggestion on the FOCR Ideas thread, found HERE:

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 8/13 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.

Drawing will be done on 8/14 and PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.

This will be a 'raffle' style swap. There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn! An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door! Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (ie-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up.

When a ‘winner’ is chosen, the creator of their ‘prize’ will get their address from the organizer in a PM. PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the ‘winner’ will be surprised with their ‘prize’ when it arrives.

Please communicate in the thread ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap. If I have not seen you posting in the thread, I will check in with you when there is about 2 weeks left to make sure you are still in on a ‘prize’ for the drawing.

Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap. For international mailings, please retain the receipt as proof of mailing. Please PM the DC to the organizer, me TheSapphireMoon, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and I will send this to your partner so we retain the ‘surprise’ aspect of this swap. For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed, and if it never arrives a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable ‘prize’ for the ‘winner.’

Feedback will be given when your partner has received and acknowledged by way of PM to me. Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!

I will post a gallery for ‘prizes’ so when the ‘winner’ receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they can post a picture or two for us showing off their great ‘prize.’

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

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

I should be getting some space opened up soon and then I will be in! hehe I'm already trying to think of exactly what I'm going to do for my shades of blue.   

I have some questions though
Does the object just have to have blue in it?
Does it actually have to be made out of several colors of blue?
Does it have to be only blue?

I LOVE this theme!  One thing I loved about the first round is the wide variety of options people had for making something that they would love to make and are good at making and this allows that same wide flexibility.

I have a pretty good idea for what I want to make, now I just have to see if I have the time to do it.  I definitely WANT to join but I'm not going to make it official until I have something made.

YAY!  So glad you are doing this again, thank you!

Item should have as much blue in it as possible or be ONLY blue.  If it is a combo with another color like black or white, that's OK too.  I called this Shades of Blue because there really ARE so many shades!  So you choose the blue(s) that work for you...and if you want to use ONLY various shades of blue in your item, then go for it!

Ohh, I really want to sign up, and I know I can have my item made in time (I even know what I would be making), but getting it actually sent out might be a problem.  I'll wait till we have booked our holiday for August so I know exactly when I'll be here, hopefully that'll be very soon.  I had so much fun in round 1, I don't want to miss out!
