Welcome to the first Aussie Ongoing Wish Swap! We are very excited to have you here Cheesy

This swap will open on September 1st and close on September 30th. If you would like to sign up please read all info and PM the organisers Oodelally & NatACT your questionnaire.

If you have participated in other ongoing swaps before, please ensure you read this information as you may find things a little different.

: This swap works as a chain. The first person will post a wish list containing both crafted items and supplies, another participant claims at least a medium item from their list and then posts their own list and so on.

: A medium item consists of a craft that takes the average crafter more than 2 hours to complete (not including drying/waiting time), or if sending supplies, AU$20-$30 of store bought items.

: Please include a minimum of 35 specific crafted items and 15 supplies in your list. To help the other participants it helps if you have a link to an image or tutorial of what you would like to receive. The more items you have in your wish list the faster you will get claimed.
Please organise your wish list into:
Crafted
Craft Supplies
Extras
You may like to organise your crafted wished into subheadings such as Yarn/ Sewn/ Papercraft/ etc.

: Please include a short description of yourself at the beginning of your post and include any allergies or things you dont like (colours/patterns/etc.) to avoid any disappointments.

: If you have a pinterest or wist you can also include that if you are happy for someone to claim something from there, perhaps specifying the boards you want to be claimed from. Please specify if you are happy or not to receive a wisty/pinteresty surprise.

: Since we are only posting within Australia it is possible to send along food, baked goods and natural materials, so you may like to include those within your wish list.

: A note regarding extras: These accompany crafted items or craft supplies and do not count towards the medium portion of the swap.

: This is a high quality swap so please only make a claim if you know you can fulfil the wish to a high calibre as you would also like to receive.

: When you claim, at the beginning of your post please include the following information: How many claims you have made, how many claims are in transit and how many claims have been received by your partner. The format 2-0-1 will be ok.

: Please have your list ready before you make a claim to help the chain move along quickly.

: Please contact the person you have claimed ASAP to say Hello and ask for their postal address, that is your responsibility to organise.

: We will be sending all claims for the AOWS with Australian Registered Post (this will still be more affordable than posting overseas Wink )

: You have 3 weeks to send your claim to allow people who need more time with their crafting. Once you have sent, please PM both organisers and the recipient the AusPost tracking number and the claim information (i.e. Oodelally ----> NatACT for Huh?, Due September 24)

: Please include the following in the subject of all communication to both organisers Oodelally & NatACT:
AOWS Approval (when sending in your questionnaire)
AOWS Sent
AOWS Received
AOWS Question

: Please make finishing other swaps a priority before joining this swap.

: Please do not make a claim for this swap until you have been approved. As soon as you have been added to the list on the first page you can begin claiming and join in the fun Cheesy

: This swap will last one month and the if all goes well will begin again at the start of October, where you will need to submit another questionnaire. You may join in at any time during the month.

Regarding Feedback:
: There are some things that will land you with negative feedback, so please pay attention to the following information.
* You must send the medium item that you have claimed for, otherwise you will receive negative feedback.
* If you claim for a cotton hat then do not send a wool one or you will need to send again.
* Pay close attention to your partners allergies and wishes. If you send something that is on the list of allergies, or dislikes etc. you will be required to send again Sad  We dont want any swappers get something that is clearly in their list of things they dont like and or have allergies of.....

: If everything goes successfully you will receive feedback once you have, sent, received and posted pictures for all of your claims Cheesy
...Or if you have not posted pictures, up to 2 weeks after the swap has ended.

I claim Oodelally for a hoopla. I'm caught between the fox and the house, so I'll let you know when I know.  Smiley

1st claim this round.

0 sent/0 recieved


Hi – I’m Linda. I’ve recently changed from journalist to art/English teacher and I’m loving it. No kids or pets to craft for and I’m vegetarian. I’ve lived in China and I speak Chinese.

Favourite colours are deep purple, silver, black, white, turquoise and blue. Check out my pinterest for more.

I support recycling, repurposing, thrifting and other save-the-earth ideas.

Here are lots of ideas. I’m all for more rather than less when it comes to list making so excuse my verbosity! I've bolded some things I'd especially like.

If you'd rather get inspired by my pinterests, feel free to ignore this list or to have a chat with me.

Crafts:
•   Tea stuff – I need to refurnish my desk at school. Some ideas include mug, mug rug, mug cozy, tea cosy, mug with lid I can take to class, tea related stuff, teapot, canister to keep tea in, anything else useful etc…
•   Something to organise my paperwork. I have piles of paperwork and marking to organise. A folder, desk storage etc…
•   I have a standard teacher’s chronicle. It could do with a cover. (A4 size spiral bound, about 3-4cm thick). Pen holder somewhere would be excellent. I can send more details if needed.
•   Knitted socks (this is probably a bit large, as a non-knitter I don’t really know). I love, love, love knitted socks.

•   Fabric ‘buckets’ to store stuff (see pinterest ‘sewn’ section). Any size is ok – desk needs organising! A4 size would be helpful for organising my marking. Smaller with pockets for stuff I carry about to class or have on my desk.
•   Funky pencil case. Mine is a bit ‘bleh’ and really only for basic pens.
•   Blackboards or whiteboards – smallish to hang on the wall. Maybe blackboard paint on a cool old plate or tray? Something fun.
•   Laptop cover that doesn’t make me die from boredom. I’ve gotta carry that thing – it might as well be fun. 15” screen.
•   Martial arts wall belt display. Maybe wooden or sturdy fabric? My style of karate uses 8 belts (white, yellow, green, blue, purple, orange, brown, black) although it could include 10 belts since we get two ‘kyu’ or black stripes on our brown belts.  The belts can’t be cut, so it needs to be able to display them folded somehow. A quick google images search shows ways people are making them but anything you come up with would be fine.
•   Funky pot for a plant to grow on my desk.
•   A way to organise my necklaces that won’t tangle them. Mine are on one of those ‘trees’ and it’s so not working. I also have dangle and stud earrings which need organising.
   2012 diary – purse sized (say A6 size-ish) – week to an opening. Embellish as you please.
•   Pins to decorate my winter coats. Either the pin type or ones which have a button hole so I can button them onto my jacket.
•   Skirt – size 12-14. Check out my wists for style. Not too full, but bright is ok.
  • T-shirt - stencil/applique whatever. Size 12-14 ish, maybe lean towards 14 so I've got a bit more room to move
•   Small wall art – smaller than A4. Embroidery, canvas, linocut, works on paper – whatever!
•   Tiny art to fit in the licence sized pocket of my wallet. I don’t want to stare at my own face anymore.
•   Purple pillowcases (2)
•   Something you think will de-stink my karate bag. All those sweaty guards and gloves do get a ‘certain aroma’. I don’t really like artificial fruit (eg strawberry) scents.

Supplies:
Fabric (stripes, bright colours, wacky prints, ‘basic’ staple colours, cotton, flannelette…)
Nail polish (it’s nail art, ya know! That’s a craft!)
Watercolours
Watercolour paper
Small canvases
Any oil paints, even half tubes, you might have lying around
Printmaking supplies - lino, rubber, etching perspex etc
Printing ink (the thick kind rather than liquid writing/brush ink), again partially used is ok
Printing rollers - hard ones
Fineliner (I lose them like there’s no tomorrow…)
Art books, art resources, how-to books to use at school
A4 or A5 sketchbook. I do my artist proofs from prints in them
Etching cream
1987 coins, if you’ve got a 5 or 10c in your purse and it’s an ’87 I’d love to take it off your hands.

Stuff I love
China
Creepy and quirky things but not creepy/cute
Scrabble
Karate
The Big Bang Theory
Purple
Necklaces
Warm feet
Summer
Fitness
Super Mario
Chairman Mao
Recipes (vegetarian)

Please, nothing witchcraft, tarot, wicca, pagan etc.

I claim schnerby for a mug rug for her desk Smiley (I've wanted to make one for ages!)

....I think I'm gonna use up all my claims quickly Tongue

2nd claim this round

2 claims outstanding / 0 sent / 0 received


Hi  My name is Lauren. I am 27 and Im from Melbourne, Australia.
I am married (have been for 7 years). I have a furbaby (cat) named Maxie. She is our princess. She doesn't go near my crafting things though
I am a teacher and I am also studying graphic design. I lived in Japan for the first 5 months of this year teaching English to children. It was one of the best (read: easiest) jobs Ive ever had. I decided to come back home to my husband, family and friends, but I totally miss Japan  Its such an amazing country! Right now I am emergency teaching and believe it or not I LOVE it!
I love the colour spectrum, my favourite colours are Red and Cobalt Blue. Brown, Cream and Red would match my house. I love the Scandinavian look of bright pops of colour on white.
I would describe my style as Cute, Fun, Bright, Happy, Neat and Eclectic.
I would prefer items from a smoke free environment. And I don't mind if you have a pet  .....as long as they don't sit on your crafts  I am also allergic to hessian >.<
You can check out my pinterest to get my style but I would much prefer a specific wish granted from the lists below. http://pinterest.com/lozzabee/ If you are unsure PLEASE PM me, I'm always around

Embroidery / Hooplas
These are hoops that I particularly like, but they dont need to be copied identically. I am happy for you to make something that you think I will love...perhaps inspired by one of my themes/TV movies below.
(If possible could the hoops please be 7 inch *to match my others*  )
