PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE NOT POSTING A LIST (WITH APPROVAL). THERE IS A SEPARATE THREAD FOR DISCUSSION; THIS THREAD IS FOR BIRTHDAY LISTS ONLY.

PLEASE READ ALL RULES BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR INFO.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR LIST UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A PM SAYING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.
The first 3 Craftsters to sign up will have extra time to choose a partner....
after that, I ask that you notify me of your choice of craftee within 3 days of posting your list.

Swap name: August 2009 Birthday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: RhymeswOrange

FOR POSTING BIRTHDAY LISTS Sign-up date range:  August 1- August 31
FOR CHOOSING A BIRTHDAY WISH TO FULFILL Sign-up date range:  August 1- August 31
DATE TO SEND ITEMS BY:  2 weeks after you claim someone unless other arrangements are made ahead of time

Limited to a certain number of people?: No.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
You must be 13 years old to swap.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: YES/NO
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

1. This swap is list style, like the Ongoing Wishlist Swap, however it is NOT chain style. You can choose any birthday craftsters list that is posted, rather than only picking the last one.

2. This is a medium item swap. A medium item is defined as a craft or recon etc that takes you two hours to complete OR $20 worth of Store Bought Items. (If bought from a thrift store, estimate at what it would have cost new.) However you may also substitute a few small items for a medium.

3. If your birthday is in swap's current month, you can post your birthday wish list for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the swap questionnaire filled out and wait for approval.

4. Once you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would like to receive. This is the format for your lists: First post your location and a short bio of yourself, then a list of crafted items you would like, then craft supplies (if any) and lastly you can put a few extras that arent crafted, things like candy or tea. Remember, the more items on your list, the more likely you are to be chosen. The minimum of items to post is five.  Also including your wists is a good way for people to get the idea of your likes and style.  If you have any allergies please type them in red in your bio section.

5. Please post lists only in this thread. Discussion can be done here in the combined discussion/gallery thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315596.0

 6. Every birthday participant must make at least one claim. You may have up to two claims at a time, and then you can claim again once your items are received (not when you mail out). New swappers may only have one outstanding claim; they may claim again after their first claim is received. Claims need to be made from the "crafted" and "craft supplies" sections of a person's list. The "extras" are just that--extra items you may want to throw in if you are feeling generous, but claims cannot be solely extras. Keep it crafty :-) (I'm asking that if you are sending mostly supplies, that you craft a little something for the bday babe.)

7. You may get claimed more than once, but your minimum amount to claim is one.  It is possible you may not get claimed at all. In this case you will not be provided a swap angel; angels are only if you get flaked on. However I do my best to make sure everyone gets claimed by keeping track of how many times each person is claimed. If possible try to pick someone who has been claimed 0 times versus someone who has been claimed 3 times.

8. If it is not your birthday but you would like to send a birthday present out you may do so.  Fill out the non-birthday swapper questionnaire and send it to me for approval.  Birthday swappers who receive a present from a non-birthday swapper must send a snail mail thank you card.  You will not receive feedback until I hear from the other swapper that they have received a thank you card.

 9. When you choose to fulfill a birthday wish, PM both me (RhymeswOrange) AND the chosen craftster.  At that time, please request the address for where to send it.  After that you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.

10. It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  It is REQUIRED that you PM me when you've sent and of course, don't forget the DC#.  It is REQUIRED that when you receive, you PM me and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  

11. When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see what has been chosen. (It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.)

12. If you are sending late you must PM me by your send-out date.  If your send-out date comes and goes and you dont PM me, you will receive poor communication feedback.  It should not be my job to hunt you down and find out what is going on.

Please make sure to put August Bday Swap or something equivalent in the subject line on all communications.  The most important thing to me is communication.  Please PM me when you send and receive, and please reply to my PM's to you in a timely manner.

Hi, I go by lovesclutter for obvious reasons, and my birthday is August 27th, very near the end of the month. I have just started crafting after not sewing anything for (well, let's just say a lot of years). I live in Knoxville, TN and am currently unemployed. I went for a round 2 interview last Friday so if I'm lucky that will change.

I love to make crazy quilt bags, throws, pillows and such out of 'fugly' fabric and I can make poppets, not as good as Ghilie but getting better. I do smoke and have cats. I keep projects in cases while I am not working on them, and when I am I don't smoke, so I cannot guarantee they will not have some residual. I will gladly fabreeze anything.



my wish list for the birthday swap

Anything from my wists. Thank you SO much Beccas_song
http://www.wists.com/lovesclutter

- dark opaque hosiery size queen
-The Beatles album, Rubber Soul (I let my bro in law take it), think media mail Wink
-Beaded or resin pendants. (I don't wear bracelets, and would prefer magnetic clasps)
-Dark Chocolate, though I realize this isn't practical in August
-A crochet shawl, any color, triangular
-A crochet shrug Thank you theballandskein
-Hand painted plates, pottery anything unusual
-Any thing Orange, Red or Yellow (though I like all colors) for my living room, statuary, wall hanging, lamp shade, etc
-a hard drive usb reader that will read desktop and laptop hard drives. Used is good
-an external usb dvd/cdr reader, doesn't have to write. This netbook has no cd and I cannot install my vast graphic software. Used is good





crafty items and/or supplies:
-fugly fabric for my cq's.
-I am very low on threads, and would like a new  threads with any colors
-Shrinky Dink supplies
-vellum papers, patterned or clear, opaque, frosted
-Glass Paints
-Any type of plastic I can cut a stencil out of
-Crap to glue to other crap (searching for the original sayer)


extras:
-Chocolate (Oh I said that, cocoa mix)
-A birthday card
-special coffees,  not much into teas



Thank you so much if you choose me. Lovesclutter, I guess if I can think of more I can modify. I am easy to please.

Hiya! My name is Mary Ann and I just turned (gasp!) 28 on August 9th! I live in Portland, OR and work as a courier but am going back to school soon, either for another Bachelors degree or for my Masters. I have 3 seriously awesome nephews that I love to spoil. I have some skin issues so cant wear much jewelry; necklaces in particular are bad for me! My favorite crafts are bath and body, sewing, and crochet with some random embroidery/cross stitch, jewelry making, and paper crafting thrown in! I like most colors, but especially green, pink, purple, and turquoise.

Happy Birthday everyone!

The list:

Crafted Items:
-Wallet in a fun bright color (but not neon please)
-Small art to hang on wallany method, I like modern/abstract and nature type pieces. My bathroom and bedroom are decorated in light pine colored wood, sage green, lavender, and black
-Sturdy sided clutch purse/wristlet (not floppy lol)
-Journal
-Simple-ish decorated hair barrettes or clips or elastics or bobby pins

Craft Supplies:
-Unusually shaped silicone ice cube trays to use as soap molds
-Cotton fabric, especially if its Moda (drool!)
-Fancy fabric for skirts (probably would need 2 yards?)
-Patterns for nifty knitter knitting
-Soft Grip crochet hooks, I think Clover brand? I really could use G and H
-Craft Books, especially paper crafts or quilting. I have a list of books I already own that I can list
-Paperback books with fun covers to make into wallets (or just the covers, you dont have to send the bookunless I might want to read it! Lol)
-Some of those thin flour sack towels to embroider on.
