Who doesn't love toast? How cool would a toast swap be?

I have a deep love affair with toast and would love to craft some toasty items. Smiley I'd like to run the toast swap soon.

Are you in?

I was thinking anything toast related. Jewelry, stuffies, bags with toast pictures, toast wallets, maybe spreads to put on your toast, drinks to drink with your toast, really the sky is the limit. Just the idea of craft items with toasty likeness makes me a little giggly.  Grin

ooo...I'm liking the sound of this.  Jams, jellies, cinnamon and sugar.  Toast jewelry!  I love it.  I'd be game for this swap.

I'm so happy to see that there is interest in this swap! Smiley

I'm just wrapping up one swap I'm in but I think by next week I will have it mailed ut and I'll open this one. This is going to be fun! It'll be my first time organizing a swap and I'm excited.  Grin

Any ideas on the kinds of questions you'd like to see on the questionaire? Any questions that would help you craft for your partner?

This will be a toast themed swap but it will be entirely up to you and your partner if you wnat to craft other breakfast foods to go with the toast. Smiley

Maybe that should be one of the questions I put on the questionaire?

Argh! I love toast, but there's no way I can do this swamp as I leave for ten weeks in about nine days, so I'll have to look out for toast swap round two.

Just before I go, I want to share a little gem from my camp (and something else, I think) that may spark some inspiration:
(we do it repeat after me style Smiley)

THE TOAST SONG!

All across the country coast to coast,
People always ask me what I like most
Now I don't wanna brag and I don't wanna boast,
I just tell em, I like toast!

Yeah toast! (yeah toast!)

Early in the mornin six AM
Spread a little jelly, spread a little jam
Take a piece of bread and put it in the slot
Push down the levers watch the wires get hot!

Yeah toast! (yeah toast!)

Now there's no secret to toasting perfection
There's a dial on the side and you make your selection
Push it to the dark or the light and then
If it pops too soon press down again!

Make toast! (yeah toast!)

When the first cavemen drove in from the drags
Didn't know what would go with the bacon and the eggs
Must have been a genius who got it in his head
Plug the toaster in the wall, buy a bag of bread

Make toast! (yeah toast!)

Oui monsieur bonjour coquette
Uh huh croissante vous a ver
Maurice chevalier effiel tower
Oh oui Marie bagette bon soir!

French toast! (french toast!)

Now if you're like me then don't be shy,
Stand up straight and look em in the eye!
And if they say that toast is crummy,
Shake your head, you know its yummy!

Yeah toast! (yeah toast!)

Hope you toast lovers enjoy!

I always have a toast craving!!  Cheesy You guys have no idead how happy I am to see interest in this!!

I'm wonder now how much crafting it should require? I think I should use the point system but how many? I was thinking a medium and 2 smalls or the equivalent points. What do you think?

OK.. here's the plan. Smiley

I'm going to open this the first week of July. I'll run sign-ups for 2 weeks. It sounds like July is just better for most people.  How does a 3 week crafting time sound? Too much? Too little?

I am SERIOUSLY excited about this swap!! It'll be my first time organizing and a theme I totally love!! I am so glad there are other like minded, toast worshippers out there!  Grin

Crafting time would depend on what the requirements are ... one tiny thing? 3 larges and a medium?   Cheesy

Well I was going to say 3 larges and a medium..  Shocked lol!

I'm thinking a 6 point swap? Is that right? I need to double check the point system again. Once sec. I'll do that and brb.

Ok.. I think my original idea of a medium and 2 smalls or I guess that would be 4 points.
