As my second swap, this would be perfect for me. I tend to latch on to a new craft and make a ton of whatever the current addiction is before moving on.

The only problem is, which items would everyone want?

I have Vinyl Records Bowls/ Cups


I have Kid Art- These are needle felted art created by my 5yo daughter. When I asked what she wanted to do with them, she told me that she wanted to put them in picture frames and sell them or swap them.


I have upcycled felted wool flowers in different sizes and styles


And I have upcycled knitted hats.



All but the Kid Art could be customized (color, style, size). 

I have no idea which two (if any) I should offer.

Any thoughts?

I have a quick question, once the signups are closed, are the items offered listed or should I just go through the forum and make a list of the items that I would like?

Also, to clarify, I am sending out 5 (or 10) different packages, one item to each swapper, correct?

Dawl- Check out the good will or any other thrift stores. Also, if there are any yard sales in your area that might be a place to check. Or freecycle if you have that in your area.

All items being offered have to be pictured here in the thread by the time signups close so we can all take a peek and see what we want Smiley I make a list as I go and then of course redo it 86 times before sending it to the organizer Wink

Yep, you'll send out either 5 or 10 packages, 1 to each person who claimed the item you're offering.

I'll do that, my freecycle has nothing, I put wants on regularly for records...and for some reason I have a senior moment every time I go to the thrift shop and completely FORGET I want records...I get everything else and then some, but always forget them Sad

It looks like signups will be closing early. There are already 23 out of the 25 spots full.  Because of this I have decided to up everything by one week. That means signups close Wednesday the 9th and top pick lists are due no later than March 11 at 8pm eastern. Sendouts will still be April 11.  Please let me know if this will be a problem for anyone! I hope it actually will be making it better for people.  Just make sure you are able to post your example photo offering by March 9th.

I keep a list of participants here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374066.msg4405965#msg4405965

and I plan to add links on that post to photos of the offerings.  When signups close you send me your top picks. 15 favorites if you are offering 10 items and 8 favorites if you are offering 5 items. Do not send me preferences, you will be sending those to your partners once you are matched.

And if someone's offering looks like this: "Avesthel (5/5) - 5 carnation clippies AND 5 jewelry extender sets" It means Avesthel is offering 2 separate items, so if you want one or both items you have to put them on your list separately.

If you want to save me time, you can send your top picks in this format since I have to put them in this format before matching anyway.

When offering 5 items, you send me your top 8 items in the order you like them like this.
1. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc to 8 items...

if you are offering 10 items then you pm me your top 15 items like this
1a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
1b. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2b. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc...3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b to 7a(your 15th pick)

any questions, let me know!  Grin

I have decided that I will offer 5 Vinyl Record Bowls/Cups (receiver chooses bowl or cup)



and 5 Felted Flower Pins (receiver can choose flower style, color, size, and backing -pin, hair clip, or headband).


I am really excited about all the fun things being offered! I am making my list and checking it twice Smiley
