I know that I can't be the only cubicle dweller on Craftster with an insane love for all the kitchy office humor around.  The Office (British and American), Office Space, Clock Watchers, 9 to 5, Dilbert, cubicle pranks, thinkgeek.com, ... it's all good, and helped me get through from the transition from college to a regular day job.  (What?  My schedule doesn't change every three months?  This is it?  For the rest of my life?  OMGNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)

So in honor of that humor that keeps all of us office drones sane, I would like to propose an office swap.  Decorations for your desk/cubicle (locker, bus, truck cab, whatever personal space you have at your job) or items pertaining to office pop culture.

Any suggestions to refine this idea?  any interest period?  Signups likely wouldn't be until late August or September, unless someone else took over the organizing.

Here is the current plan:  (Input is welcome.)

I'm going to try to start sign ups on the 18th of August-28th of August.  I'll have partners assigned by the evening of the 29th (US CST).  Three weeks+ to craft, giving us a shipping deadline of September 22nd.

I will not be able to organize this one due to some personal conflicts right now.  Sorry guys!


Open to all countries, any age.

Aiming for 5 points, standard being 1 medium and 3 smalls.  (lg=3, md=2, sm=1)
Extras allowed if ok'd with your partner.

Craft anything for a cube or office, OR anything that is an homage to office pop culture.  I'll start digging for examples this week.

Long story short, this swap will happen.  Hurray!

I love this swap idea!!! I just moved to a new cubicle and it looks so sad being decorated with my sticky pad reminders!

I am bank!

Morning Glory: They need our help, Rosedust!

Rosedust: It's not our fight, Morning Glory.

Megan: Yes it is! It's everyone's fight!

Lickety-Split: Yeah! Everybody has to help everyone else!

I'm glad someone else thinks it's a good idea.

Would the September timeline work for everyone here, as far as y'all know?  And does anyone have preferences for sizes?

I'm personally a fan of relatively small swaps, so I was thinking 4-5 points total.  (1 medium and 2-3 smalls?)

Any input?

Oh I would definately be up for this!  I love The Office and office space and frankly my cube could use a facelift.  Pimp my cubicle!

I finally got a cubicle with a window, but it could still use some sprucing up! I would totally be up for this swap!

That's funny. 

I had a window.  And then they promoted me.  You know what they did?  Moved me into the file room.  No joke.

They'd better leave my red Swingline alone.  (I have one... seriously....)
