Ok I think I'm caught up on my questionairres, but if you think you're missing, please let me know!

Help us all if anyone thinks the US is all about Walmart!   Tongue 

You don't have to be literal on the theme.  Smiley  I think your partner's questionairre will kind of help you go in the right direction.  Like maybe your partner likes French cooking so you send some French recipes in a little cookbook with pictures of France decoupaged on it.  Or your partner has never been to France but would like to go & you have been, so you send pictures of different French scenery in crafted frames.  You don't have to crochet the Eiffel Tower or anything - it's all about your interpretation of the theme - just have fun with it!   Smiley

Just kidding of course... It's an Eiffel Tower made of matches! I wouldn't have the patience, nor the glue!

I so want to be paired with someone who wants to learn about French cuisine...


And I'm so going to get some pains au chocolat tomorrow for breakfast  Grin (only because I have nothing left in the house)
Now I'm curious about that light bulb...


Atrandom, Will you also be making the pont de tancarville? In that case I may have to invite you for dinner...  Tongue

Oh no, that movie XD

I'm french! Shocked I live in paris, so I would have super easy access to all that lovely touristy "oh so french" stuff--however, I'm not sure how much I really want to get an eiffel tower bag or other such silliness Wink  Do you guys think I should sign up?


-eta- Also, while it has nowhere near the amount of stuff urbandictionary has, desencyclopedie is funny and has "made up" terms and slang in it. http://desencyclopedie.wikia.com/wiki/Gothique  Here's one of my favorite pages XD   The "geekette" page is funny too... that whole site is a lot of lols xD

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

I think that's what the sign up form is for! You can say what stuff you like and what stuff you don't like so that your partner gets to know your tastes. So yes, why not? You could always wish for a penguin holding a baguette and a bottle of wine!

The thought of a crocheted crepe makes me laugh!

Like maybe your partner likes French cooking so you send some French recipes in a little cookbook with pictures of France decoupaged on it.  Or your partner has never been to France but would like to go & you have been, so you send pictures of different French scenery in crafted frames.  You don't have to crochet the Eiffel Tower or anything - it's all about your interpretation of the theme - just have fun with it!   Smiley 

I think those are good ideas. Confession: I do have a print of the Eiffel Tower in my living room.  Embarrassed It's a series of photographs taken as it was being built; it's interesting and the sepia tones match the wall color. BUT! As much as I love the monuments and architecture and history of France, I don't need a house full of miniature Eiffel Towers. Kwim?  Cheesy I'm not completely sure how someone would go about crafting the things I miss about France, but it's more the little everyday things. I loved going down to the vegetable market once a week (sew a market bag?); I enjoyed a grand bol de chocolat on cold mornings (ceramists throw a big mug?); I liked the giant skeleton key to my 17th century apartment when I was a student there (polymer clay antique keys?). It's kind of all those little everyday things that add up, not necessarily the blatant stuff!  Wink I listed all kinds of things like that in my questionnaire, so Future Partner, I don't expect you to mail me a wrought iron window grate  Shocked ; instead take an interpretation of form and design and work it into your craft! I hope that helps anyone who is nervous about making "French" things. Nataluna gave a lot of good ideas for sources of inspiration!

Gosh, I sound so serious. I'm really not. And I'm really looking forward to partners so we can get this party started!!

Ah man, if only I'd known that was an option.  Cheesy Future Partner: I like a nice Cote du Rhone.  Grin
