Details of swap:
This is a swap for those that need a little more Steampunk in their everyday lives. Maybe you love the aesthetic, but can't wear it everyday due to work/school restrictions. Or maybe you do wear it every day but need a little more in your life. Either way, this swap is for you! We'll be making some awesome Steampunk stuff for our homes (or wherever else we want to put it), it can be decorative, useful, or something in between! While most people will think art and papercrafts, it can also include lamps, stuffed animals/dolls, tablecloths, notebooks, and anything in between! As long as it isn't wearable it works. This will be a 5 point swap, with the requirements of at least one item being a medium or large.

I reserve the right to refuse anyone due to feedback, frequent late senders or flakers may be refused! I want this to be a flake free swap!

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

ok I have a question.. I am really considering this swap because I think it would be fun to craft for but as far as the receiving end.. would you consider Fallout 3, Bioshock and The Smashing Pumpkins Steampunk?

I don't see why not, although I think of Fallout 3 and Bioshock as more apocalyptic... but I also never like to limit steampunk to a specific set of things. I think it would be up to you to decide if they are

Also, if you guys have any more ideas feel free to post them here and I'll add them to the second post... I just went through my Steampunk pinterest board and picked out some stuff.

Oh, and I'm sure everyone has seen this already, but I love this blog: http://thesteampunkhome.blogspot.com/

yeah I am not directly in to steam punk but I think it would be super fun to craft for, I just wanted to make sure I had things to give my partner ideas to craft for me.. post apocalyptic reminds me of steampunk quite a bit so I wasn't sure if it counted

I am doing google searches and updating my pinterest.. I will look through the links you provided and if I can come up with enough to help a potential partner out I will get my questionnaire in!
