Whoop, questionnaire sent!

Lydiaharper and VampAracely, you're right, there are loads of directions this could go in but I think that's a good thing. It'll make it easier to settle on something in the theme that your partner will like. So, possible options, something related to your partner's favourite post-apocalyptic film/tv show/book, clothes or jewellery with a post-apocalyptic feel, items that would be useful in a worst-case scenario - like a mini survival kit, or something that your partner would really want to keep with them. I think this swap gallery is going to have a huge range of stuff, it'll be great!

I'm jealous of whoever gets Alexus as a partner, she makes the best apocalyptic stuff! Ugh, I'm still on the fence with this one...

Now that it's cold again, I've been wearing the crazy green hat you made me a lot. The COMPLIMENTS, oh gosh, the compliments! Choruses of "Did you make that?!?!" leading to explanations of what a Craftster swap is Tongue

I hope you convince yourself to sign up!

Yeah... I did finally convince myself... I really shouldn't but I can't resist!

I'm so glad you like the hat, that was far more fun to make than it should have been...

Welcome to the swap Alchamy513 and soxymoron! I haven't added you guys to the feedback forum yet, so don't worry that the swap's not showing up on your profile. My computer's being slow and not wanting to load the feedback page and I'm on my way out (having a long overdue girls night  Grin ) so I'll get it all straightened out when I get back tonight. But for now I just wanted to let you guys know you've been approved and whatnot.

I've been looking at this swap every day! Lol I don't know. This sounds so interesting but I'm one of the on the fence people.

Me, too.
 
I am wondering though, since this swap can go in tons of different directions, what are a few ideas of things that could be made?  Just general ideas, I don't want anyone to give too much away, but something to kinda get the ball rolling and help fill out the questionnaire.  lol

Yeah that's one of my main concerns too! What to make? I'm afraid I'm going to be stumped and run out of time and then panic will ensue Lol.


Off the top of my head (depending on what your partner's into), I'm thinking zombie killing kits (i've seen some cool ones around craftster), steampunk guns, practical survival kits (that have been properly decorated/modified of course) like 20 hour candles, canteens, that kind of stuff. I made sure to put that question about everyone's favorite movies/tv shows/books as an easy fallback so if you can't think of anything else you can do stuff related to that just like any other movie/tv related swap.  I'll do some research later and add a list of projects I find for you guys to use for inspiration. But yeah I definately see this gallery being all over the place which should be really cool.

I already have a few ideas, can't wait for partners! I know, I know, I just joined. But my brain exploded (in a non-zombie way!).

Ok just added a bunch of links on the front page for inspiration and ideas. Most of them are zombie related becuase that's kind of the in thing right now, but you could easily take those ideas and modify them to whatever impending doom you see fit. Hope this helps.
