All signed up! Here are the things I can do:
Crochet (including some amigurumi)

And here's a little more in depth blurb about each of them:
-Resin! I make pendants and magnets mostly, but I've been looking to get a bangle mold for a while now. The technique is the same, I think--once you figure out how to get it to cure properly, you're set.
-I love making bead things: loom woven stuff and those charm/noisy bracelets are my favorite.
-I'm not sure how I could do baking in the swap because I'm afraid any fancy cute things I send would just get messed up. I had to put it in, though, as it's one of my favorite "crafts". I could definitely do a kit for this one--recipes, useful baking tools to have on hand, etc. I guess I could make a package that way, and maybe craft some sort of useful baking thing (like an apron?)
-I love sewing. I can't make big fancy complicated stuff (like incredibly intricate costumes), but I can definitely figure out how to make things from a tutorial/pattern. Sometimes I can even just throw stuff together.
-I've been knitting for a few years now, but haven't done anything huge or complicated. I can do scarves, blankets, hats, and using the internet I can sometimes figure out patterns. If someone wanted to learn knitting, I could definitely teach them the basics. Same goes for crochet, but I can do basic amigurumi as well (certainly enough to make an amigurumi kit).

I am very excited to be partnered up! Grin

I'm still on the fence about this swap but thought if I posted my list of can do can't do maybe you would help me to decide wether I am in or out Smiley

what I can make:

crocheted and knitted items (simple knits are more my thing as I have short attention span, but I do cables and lace knitting it's more I don't do big items lol) I don't use icky feeling yarns because my skin is sensitive to texture, and I can't imagine spending that much time making something that no one wants to touch when it's done.  Crochet I do free form or by visual reference (I don't follow patterns but can make pretty much anything) I like making pieces that are funky and slightly unusual or unexpected I can make cozys, dishcloths, hats, scarves, fingerless gloves, headbands, purses/handbags, plant holders, etc... (Intermediate/Advanced depending on the project)

artistic resin pendants/baubles/trinkets (I don't want to make what we see everywhere, I want them to be special, no candy sprinkles for me!!!) (expert)

glass etching from simple to heavily intricate pieces (expert)

beaded jewelry, artistic shrinkydink jewelry, I like to make intricate and delicate pieces (expert)

polymer clay sculpture I have preference towards making foods but really I can sculpt just about anything I set my mind to (expert)

sewn items (I've been sewing my entire life, longer than I actually have memory of) This is likely my strongest craft, but as of lately it is far from my favorite lol. I prefer making things that aren't to be worn as I'm very particular about body measurements and I don't figure I can take them in person for a swap lol. but bags, wallets, cozy's, organizers, etc... are all fair game (expert)

paintings/drawings (I don't know that I can paint on request but i do love to paint and if inspiration strikes it's great, if I force it, typically it ends up sucking) (Intermediate/advanced)

handpoured candles (advanced)

woodworking (I'm getting a new scroll saw for my birthday! and I couldn't be more excited!!!) (advanced)

Miniatures 1/12th scale to 1/3 scale miniatures I love making little things and can make them from a variety of different mediums. (expert)

Barbie makeovers (fairies, disco queens, goth/punk girls, and pretty much anything in between) (advanced)

handmade soaps though I'm out of lye at the moment Tongue (intermediate)

homemade perfumes, lipbalms, bathsalts, bathmilks (advanced)

recon crafts (record crafts, crafts from recycled magazines, newspaper, jewelry box recons, etc...) (intermediate)

stenciled shirts, bags, etc... (intermediate)

Paper crafts (handmade cards, journals, books, etc...) (Intermediate)

stamp making, I have lots of fun with this but it is an intermediate craft for me Smiley  pictures are easier for me than text lol (intermediate)

Things I can't do (not from lack of desire but from lack of access to materials or supplies)

fused glass - would love some dainty delicate and artistic pieces

handspun yarn and/or a spinning kit

pottery - I'd like some artistic pieces to hang on my wall

needle felting kit I want to try this badly

stained glass pieces - again would love some artistic and/or funky pieces for my home

paintings/drawings/watercolors/pen&inks - Yes I can paint, but I want art in my home that someone else created because I love the emotion evoked in other peoples work. It makes me all gooey inside lol.  Would kill for some 7" x 7" square art that I could mount into these frames I have (each as 3 openings and I have 4 of them). I'd really love trees or drawings of my family

Quilts or crocheted blankets (made from uber soft acrlyic or other yarns)  I'm not a quilter and blankets aren't really my thing to make with crochet or knitting Lap size is ok I'm just eternally cold, or even fun patchwork pillows to go on my little ikea sofa in the game room. 

woven items would be fun too I bought a loom recently but haven't really played with it at all

hand knitted socks, I really suck at making 2 of anything that are the same (must love the refusal to use patterns, it makes it hard to do things like this)


life is what you make it - make it art & make it beautiful

Well I, for one, know that if you sign up I will be jumping all over the place trying to get you to be my partner!

I'm not kidding either.... don't make me beg.

I'm not able to officially join the swap until the sixth, but I can't wait!  I'm hoping to make some kind of blanket for someone for sure, beyond that we'll see!

I'd really love to join this swap but i'm a little concerned that i'm not able to match up to the rest of you. You all seem SOOOO skilled & i'm worried that there would be nothing that i could offer that any of you would want.

So i'm testing the waters here before i send in my questionaire...............

My best talent is bead jewellery (earrings, bracelets, necklaces brooches)........a little wire work jewellery................Altered/handmade jounals, these can be for writing or created for art journaling..................sets of notecards or sentiment cards( birthday, get well, thankyou, hello, Happy Mother's/Father's day mixture................mini scrapbooks ready to put in pics & journalling............altered items( maybe decorated clocks, clipboards for shopping/to do lists, candles )  I can knit long scarves but that's as far as the knitting goes & my needlework skills are in the very very novice stage.

Please give me feedback & let me know if it would be worth me putting in my questionaire!
Thanks folks xxx
