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. THERE WILL BE A QUIZ. REALLY.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR LIST UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A PM SAYING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.


Questions? Please post here in the discussion/gallery.

Swap name: August 2010 Birthday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: barbolot
Sign-up date range:  August 2 August 31
DATE TO SEND ITEMS BY:  2 weeks after you make a claim

Limited to a certain number of people?: No.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
You must be 16 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
- Is at least 18 years old: 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 16 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 being able to pick from the last one posted like in the OWS.

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. While you're waiting, be sure to post in the discussion thread: 
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=355543.0

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. Please see "Tips to Creating a Good List" below

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=355543.0
Please be sure to post here so that you can be part of the discussion and receive. You will not be approved until you have posted in the discussion thread.

 6. Every birthday participant must make at least one claim. You may have up to two claims at a time, unless you are an FOC or a first time swapper, 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. FOC"s may have 3 outstanding claims at a time. 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 the organizer AND the chosen Craftster.  At that time, please request the address from the receiver 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).  If you do not send the appropriate pms you will receive poor communication feedback.

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.

13. *New Rule* If you are flaked on in this swap you will receive an angel, but only in the amount of packages to which you also sent out. For instance, if you send out 2 packages, and are claimed for 3 packages but are flaked on once, you will not receive an angel because you already received 2 packages, which is equal to what you sent. If you send 1 package and are claimed for 1 package and you are flaked on, you will receive 1 angel.

Please make sure to put June Birthday 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. 

If you format your pm's like this, I'll love you forever.   
Format for PM's:

Proper label:
"June Bday Swap" and either "Sign-up," "Claim," "Sent," "Received," or "Question"

When sending sent and received pm's include the send-by date, listed in the second post of the main thread, your user name, their user name and the item. Just copy and past the info from the second post if you want!:

Send by August 14
MareMare to kittykill--handmade soap and lotion

Outstanding claims allowed:
FOC's: 3 at a time
First time swappers: 1 at a time
Everyone else: 2 at a time

Become an FOC~

TIPS TO CREATING A GOOD LIST
It seems that every month there is someone whose list languishes for a while. I want everyone to get picked so here are some tips for a well-round list:
--Make sure your items are actually mediums and smalls. Quilts are not mediums. Large painted portraits are not mediums. Hand knit sweaters are not mediums This isnt to say that you cant have any large items on your list (some generous soul may have the time and the inclination to choose one of those!), but the majority of the list should be smaller items
--Listing A surprise plus a well filled out Craftster profile and a link to your wists (with a decent amount of items on it) is always helpful in getting chosen
--Make sure to post a variety of crafting techniques. If you list appliqud t-shirts in various themes, that more like one item for someone to choose, not ten. Having sewn, knit, crocheted, paper crafted, jewelry etc, various methods is going to make it easier for people to choose you.
--Check out other lists in past Bday swaps and the Ongoing Wishlist Swap for ideas for things you never knew you wanted!

Hi, my name is Marie and I will be 28 on August 20th.

My favorite things to do are read, sew, knit, crochet, surf craftster & craft blogs, ride bitch on the motorcycle, riding quads and catering to my husband & friends (beer me bitch is a term of endearment round these parts, lol)  Kiss  But I also love simple things like spending hours on end watching tv marathons on netflix, while squooshed on the couch with my husband and dogs.   Smiley

Words that describe my fave colors are very rustic, woodsy, deep & bold but I do love lots of color and the biggest things I would say to steer away from are pastels or primary colors used in conjunction with each other.

my only allergy is fake metal that will be in constant & direct contact with my skin  Tongue

Loves:  
Treeeees
Tattoos
Argyle and plaid
Guns- revolvers, big arse shot guns, bolt or lever action rifles
the paranormal- all of it!
Mountains, snow & lakes (dont care for the beach)
lightening storms & the swamps are the only 2 things I love about Florida
coffee/tea/lattes- love to drink them and I love coffee house themed stuff
Celtic- I love celtic lore, knots, etc.  Tack on Medieval and your golden!
rustic/cabin dcor
MMA (especially Chuck Liddell, /drools)
Brownies & chocolate
Nintendo
Beer, ales, lager, etc.  Again, love to drink and also love pub signage & all around atmosphere.
Chuck Taylors
My husband's red beard
Braveheart
smutty romance novels
cooking & baking
am hoping to add dirt biking to this list soon as I am about to learn!  Grin

 Dislikes: hate, exercise, litterbugs, people who dont give you the thank you wave when you let them in.

Hi, My name is Giovanna and I'll be 37 (argh!) on august 18th, but feel and act about 10 years younger, I live in the UK
but am Dutch and moved here about 10 yrs ago.

I live with my bf and 2 cats who do have access to my craft room (simply as its so full the door had to be removed...
I am only allergic to seafood, but other then that very easy

I sew and knit mainly and have dabbled in soap making, i would love to learn to crochet to make all those awesome
amigurumi out there, I love the colours purple and teal, and anything with skulls and flames. I love black and any
bright colour but pink. I am not a girly girl.

My friends describe me as a punk rock geek with a touch of goth.. in which they are probably right.. I love video
games and used to work in IT but now back in uni to change careers to exercise and health science.

I love dragons!! the proper 4 legged and wings variety..


Crafts

I need a new pincushion, something cool and unusual.. and if it contains a dragon.. even better.. Yay a dragon amigurumi is being made for me.. Thanks Whisp3red

plushies.. I would love a dragon plushie or any other cool punk and/or rock plushie

Altered notebooks A4 or A5

Wall art themed in either something like my cats (i can give photos as reference) or ocean (think crashing waves)

Jewellery, I love semi precious stones and amethyst and tiger eye are among my favourites, but i love them all.
wearing citrine at the moment. I have pierced ears. necklace, earrings, bracelet are all welcome.

Handyed and/or handspun yarn, I love for some of this yarnie goodness

Anything from my wist or inspired by it. Its not massive but it gives a good idea. www.wists.com/hebe73

Learn to crochet kit

resin kit (something else I would love to learn)

cool amigurumi's anything video game (ask me for which ones if you are a nerd like me) or star wars.

Whimsy jar

Handmade soap.. I love citrus and lavender. I have a sensitive skin and i loved the soaps i used to make.
I prefer essentials oils.

Cool altered or stencilled tees, i love fitted ladies t-shirts, size M to L (large bust  Wink) see wist for a few nerdy ones.

I would love to replace my bulky purse with a card purse and a money purse.


Supplies

Freezer paper.. It is hard to get here in the UK and those that do sell its VERY overpriced.

Fabric paint.. I only have purple, light blue, black and a very light yellow.. Could do with a few more..

Anything for sewing.. fabric/zippers/buttons/ribbon/interfacing etc..

patterns for either clothing or plushies

safety eyes, mainly the black ones. somehow they are harder to get.

altoid tins.. cant find them here for the live of me


Extra's

Cant really think of anything in particulair, but i love dark/bitter choclate with at least 65% cocoa.


Let me know if this is extensive enough, i'll be adding more to my wist soon, as i have been lazy hitting the button. Any questions, feel free to pm me xx

Thanks in advance for anyone making me something

Hi! My name is Lo, I turned 20 on August 8th! i live in Kentucky, but am moving to California on August 27th, so if it's not too much to ask, could get my presents to me before then?! (if not, no worries! i can have my dad send them on to me!)

Favorites!- My favorite colors are purple, teal, and maroon. I also love black/white/gray combos. I have a DEEP love for bats, Ive always been obsessed with the little guys! Therefore I love vampires too, but the dark kind! NOT fantasy, I HATE Twilight. I also love angels, skeletons, the human anatomy, outer space, tattoos, vintage, grandma stuff, piercings, matryoshka dolls, anything funky! and last, I love anything to do with Jesus and Mary!

Dislikes!- I really dislike animal prints! I can not wear regular earrings because my lobes are stretched. I also can not have anything that has a really strong smell, like something that smells like it is covered in perfume or smoke, I will get a terrible migraine.
 

CRAFTS:

my biggest wishes will be bolded!!

- re-usable snack bags. or the re-usable sandwich wrap things. well just anything re-usable to carry my lunch in!

- binder cover with pockets inside. I want one to hold my crochet patterns! (like this - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=43635640)

- knitted socks! I wear a size 6 or 6 1/2 women shoe. but i like my socks to fit tight! so they can be quite tiny please  Smiley

- this cross stitch! ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/artrim/485586740/in/pool-1344463@N22 )

- altered journal! For writing my dreams down in (Im obsessed with deciphering dreams)
