I was thinking about how we all have neat usernames on here and that it would be really fun to craft a theme package that was themed around our usernames. We could send an explanation of why we picked our usernames and go from there. =)

I love personal swaps! I knit and make jewelry mostly, but do a few other crafts as well. PM me. =)

That is an interesting idea, would make a great scrapbook, people can send a 6x6 inch piece to several swappers, with a picture of their avatar & the story of how they created their name, & you might do it a couple times over the year if you were interested in adding to your book.  You could even alternate the size, each time, so sometimes you could but 2 or 4 on a page, & some people might have taken a whole 12x12 inch page, & you could bind the different pieces together.  That'd be a good gift for one of the moderators or swap leaders, too.  Teachers often create class books like this for the star of the week, or from the class to a teacher.  & it's not limited to paper craft, it could be done on fabric, in needlecraft, beads, in many media.

I was thinking that we would craft around our partner's username, for instance, for you, knitting-mystery, I might craft something detective or knitting themed.

That's a good idea, too.  Making it about/for someone else.  Some names might have a number of options for why it was chosen, but of course, anyone can think up what it could mean, or just illustrate it in their own interpretation.  They might have several people send them their ideas, & they could put them together somehow, like in a frame or scrapbook.  A series of ATCs could be fun, & collecting them like baseball cards from your Craftster swapping community.

What is an ATC? I have seen the term around, but never figured out what it was...

An ATC - stands for artist trading card - is a mini piece of art, the size of a baseball card or playing card, that you have created a little 'art' - like scrapbooking on a mini-scale, they are usually themed, use a variety of artsy/crafty techniques, and you just give them away or swap them - they are not supposed to be sold.  There are a lot of galleries & info about them on the internet, & many groups & places where you can swap them with others.

Beefishie (great user name!) - did you know there have been similar swaps before? Apologies if you did, I just thought the gallery from a previous round might give some ideas Grin

Still, a past similar topic might generate new interpretations plus there may be many new participants.  I always love browsing galleries for new ideas & techniques.
