How can you pick out a favorite FO?  I've done so many different things that I felt good about, that it would be impossible to pick out one.

Calluna, if you're joining this swap, I definitely have to consider it.  I know that whatever you come up with will be awesome.

Yes, you must join! Especially after the flattery!  Grin As for favorite FO (thank you AQ! And hello to Snort!), I had to narrow it down to papercrafts first and then go with my first gut response. Just picking one out of many favorites is fine; I think it's the "why" part of the question that means the most, because that gives a sense of the inner workings of our swap partners' creativity and values.

Thank you, Penlowe, for posting the categories; I see now that even knowing the categories I still can't start early because I need to wait to find out what my swap partner likes. But I can start looking at images/paper in terms of those categories, which is a helpful filter when overwhelmed with too much paper to look at!  Smiley

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

TAOJ gets the credit for the great questionaire & rules Smiley I stoleded them from the Yarnie Scavenger Hunt sign up. I actually cut it down a bit as there were questions that didn't translate to paper very well.

I'm sending in my questionaire tomorrow. I need to seriously think on some of the questions. I'm bound to change or add something to it between now and then. Hope someone can relate. I agree on the one favorite craft project thing everyones mentioned. I have too many! I'm proud of all of my finished projects and can't decide. Cheesy

D'oh! I knew I'd miss one YARN in there somewhere.

No categories don't need to be literal, especially if postal regulations would prohibit!

Yes FO is Finished Object. It's used a bit more among the yarn & fabric crafters but it's a good all purpose term along with WiP & UFO. PiGS are pretty much strictly fabric & yarn folks.

Work in Progress
Un Finished Object
Project in a Grocery Sack, when you have all the materials for a specific thing organized together but haven't started yet.

I thought of that too with botanical, but really it could be pages from a botanical book  Wink
