Practical crafts: Either or is good with me.  I like a lot of decorative stuff so anything is great.

Item size: I have no idea.  I know this isn't helpful, but I like tiny things, and big things and I'd be happy with anything.

I'd be happy with a box filled with 1pointers Grin
Yep this is me! I just want everyone to have fun! If you aren't able to make a large...then bring on the medium...or small! Besides, my idea of large might be completely different than yours.

I couldn't agree more!

I may be wrong, but I think most things I ask for in my questionnaire and on my wist are small/medium/and maybe largish medium rather than large.  I would never open a swap package and have a problem if my partner had chosen an extra small or medium rather than a large.  Well, I guess the knitted things on my wist are almost always larges in time no matter how small the things are.

Oh DaisyTattoo you are wonderful!  I was just thinking I needed to sit here and go through all of this and pick stuff out to answer.

My apologies for not being around more. Work is crazy, home life is... well... yeah and my creativity is hiding in a cave somewhere. Bah! I can deal with the other two, but when my creativity goes on vacation I get a bit frightened.

At any rate, I am hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far!

Would you be disappointed or happy to receive a swap package comprised all or mostly of one type of craft?  I'd be fine with it. Smiley  It's nice to get a variety, but if it's all something you love, one thing is great!

Which is more revealing/useful for your stalker in terms of getting your style and wants right - your questionnaire or your WIST?  Hmmm, I think probably my WIST and PINTEREST.  My questionnaire seems wishy-washy to me.lol


For jewelry, what is your preferred clasp? Lobster claw? Hook? Toggle? Something I didn't name? I'm good as long as it's secure. Smiley


What are your favorite non-edible things to receive if your partner chooses to send little non-crafted extras? I love things to go on my office bookshelf - they can be all kinds of weirdness. Here's what's on it right now:  Snape and Hermione dolls of all sorts, knitted vampire, abominable snowman and elf, Snape shrine, godmother book, spiderweb candleholder, Nightmare Before Christmas characters...all sorts of little oddities.


Do you like practical only items that have to have a function? are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty?  I prefer things I can use, but I do like the things for my bookshelf too. Smiley


Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large?  Absolutely!

Would you be disappointed or happy to receive a swap package comprised all or mostly of one type of craft?   I would be happy if it was something I can't do (knitting!) or things I would never make for myself. Otherwise a mixture is nice.

Which is more revealing/useful for your stalker in terms of getting your style and wants right - your questionnaire or your WIST?  My questionaire is usually current to the time of the swap, while some of the wists stuff might be a bit old. Stuff I still like, just maybe not what I'm in love with RIGHT NOW.


For jewelry, what is your preferred clasp? Lobster claw? Hook? Toggle? Something I didn't name? I can't wear jewelry. So no clasp lol!


What are your favorite non-edible things to receive if your partner chooses to send little non-crafted extras?  I love fun socks! Polka dots and argyle and stripes. Um I could use a couple cheap wall calendars (lke, dollar store calendars even) because somehow I don't have any for 2011 yet lol. I can always use writing pens, not sure where mine go. I love carmex click sticks (the chapstick style ones), especially in the wild cherry flavor.

Do you like practical only items that have to have a function? are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty?  I love practical! If it's decorative I really really would prefer that it hangs on the wall, not a knick knack to sit on a shelf. I just don't have any shelf space, and I have naughty nephews who get into everything.


Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large?  Yep!

thank you so much for posting the questions!! I was worried I'd have to go back and find them all.  I've been around all week, but haven't posted much.  Been working away at my large...   I don't want to give anything away, but if you maybe haven't posted recently, you should think about it,.  


16. What would you say your style is?(SaralaAnne-Pg.74)
its... lazy?  I wear what I have to when I'm at work, but otherwise, its jeans and tshirts.. usually ones I got from swaps.
17. Are you cold all the time, or do you overheat?(suereal_Pg.77)
At work, I'm warm, and have my fan on.  at home, I'm cold because the husband jacks the AC down to like 71 every night and i sit here shivering.
18. Is it too late in the season to send outerwear?(Ekkagirl-Pg.76)
I don't think so!! I live in Florida, so I don't have much use for scarves or hats, but I could definitely use some slippers or knitted socks.
19. Are you a past thinker, present thinker, or future thinker and why?(Bugaboo1-Pg.78)
uh, I guess present or future?  I'm always planning but try not to get too caught up in it.
20. If you could travel/live anywhere, where would that be?(goktrose-Pg.78)
Los Angeles.  I was out there in December to visit a friend and it was fabulous.  Some day I think I will live there. That or Seattle.  It's where I'm from and haven't been home in years and years and I really should go see my  mom.
21. What did you want to be whe n you grew up? Could you see yourself doing that now?(lindzyt-Pg.79)
I wanted to be a brain surgeon.  No, seriously.  but there is no way in HELL i could do that now.  The hours, the pressure... I'd lose my mind.  I'm in accounting now, and that's stressful enough
22. What sorts of films do you enjoy? Any favorite movies? Would you enjoy crafts inspired by them?(JaquelineD-Pg.82)
man, I love all kinds of movies.  I like comedies and dramas... I love the Goonies and Trading Places - I could watch those all day long.  Back to the Future an its sequels are awesome.  I like to quote all of these movies randomly.  Crafts inspired by would be awesome. Smiley
23. Would you be disappointed or happy to recieve a package comprised all or mostly of one type of craft?(S is for Summer-Pg.88)
That would be fine! I like most crafts! all jewelry? awesome.  All sewn? awesome.  All yarny goodness? awesome.  
24. For jewelry, what is your preferred clasp? Lobster claw? Hook? Toggle? Something I didn't name?(xandrigirly-Pg.88)  uh, lobster claw is good... anything is really.  I like the toggle ones too.  I don't really like the ones that screw together those are a little hard for my fingers.
25. Which is more revealing/useful for your stalker in terms of getting your style and wants right, your questionnaire or your wist?(NotKnit-Pg.88)
I think a combination?  I forget what I put on both sometimes.
26. What are your favorite non-edible things to recieve if your partner chooses to send little non-crafted extras?(gamemom42-Pg.89)  Crafty supplies! yarn or zippers, dmc thread... that sort of thing.  sewing extras... um, maybe bath stuff? that sort of thing?  I put some stuff on the questionaire that I like scent wise...
27. Do you like practical only items that have a function? Are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty?(Bugaboo1-Pg.90)  I am not really into decorating things?  I never get art.  But i like functional things.  or just cute things.
28. Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large?(mom2em-Pg.92)
sure! i'd be happy with that! I'm kind of struggling with that myself.

27. Do you like practical only items that have a function? Are you ok with a mix of practical and knickknack? Do you just love tons of crafted items to set out and make life pretty?(Bugaboo1-Pg.90)  I'm fine with both - I have a 'designated' area where I put my knickknacky items and I love the practical because I love to show them off (so do my daughter because no one ever believes that someone could make most of the items I recieve - I think that's why she loves my swapping).

28. Would you be okay with 2-3 medium items instead of 1 possibly half decent large?(mom2em-Pg.92) Yes!

On a crafty note, I'm scrapping one of my ideas for my partner's package and going with something different.  I've seen this particular item in several of her stalkable sites so I'm going with that one instead.  As soon as I log off, I'm getting to work!
