Okay folks, I've processed the latest questionnaires!

If you would please check the third post in this thread for your name and your profile to be sure the swap is there, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all so much for joining!

I made a dozen birds tonight. When we get partners I'll see if any of the birds I made will suit my partners. If not, I have a sale coming up Sunday and another the end of April!

*laughs* That is awesome!

I'm so glad to finally have you in one of my swaps odd_artist. Cheesy

I laughed at the international postage bit.

I'm in China. The chances of me getting a domestic partner is very unlikely...

Can't wait to begin. I had a good explore downtown today... Found some interesting stuff.

I can't wait to get started making birds! Cheesy I may have to work on a prototype or two to satisfy these itchy crafting fingers!

Without too many details, I checked the box to say I would take any birdie.  How many chose that option? 

And since  this is my first swap like this, I have a few questions.
How do you go about crafting for this?
Do you make the same type of bird for all that vary slightly?  Like a collection?
Do you make them speficically to each person?  Like one person in big in crochet and then another in fimo clay, and another done in embroidery?

Just wondering if I could get some tips...I am probably making too much of this! 
I get swap anxiety so easily.
Thanks
peace

I'll most likely make a series, with each of them slightly different to make it unique.

I will pay attention to my partners' likes and dislikes though, so I don't send a hot pink and orange bird to someone who only likes black & white.

I want to make fabric 3-D birds but waiting on fabric choices so I can make birds that fit with what my partners likes.
I do plan on making a few ahead of time so I can play with the pattern a bit.
this is the one I plan on using

but I also saw a needlefelted bird with forks for feet that I would like to try and a needlefelted hummingbird that was beyond cool - so I may change my mind on the above <g>

I'm probably going to make my birds using a bunch of different techniques. I have a plastic bird ornament, the kind with a spring and a clip for feet, that I'm thinking of customising (re-painting, adding a better tail, that sort of thing), and I might needle-felt one, and knit a few, depending on what my partners like. Cheesy

My name's still not on the participant list, even though I got the PM confirmation a few days ago. Might PM the organiser later, once I've done some more maths. *dead* (I have a hugely important test tomorrow. The 'if I bomb completely I probably won't get into university' kind of important. Had physics and Finnish last week. Dear god, the stress.)

I just discovered this swap and am sending in my info now!  Grin

It will be so much fun to receive a bunch of different birdies from all over the world!

I've been a bit leery of shipping internationally in past swaps, but think that since this is just one small item and not a box full of stuff, it shouldn't be too expensive.

Yay! The ideas are swimming (or should I say flying, ha!) around in my brain already!
