So many Craftsters have interesting user names and avatars. How did they com up with that? Just what exactly does that mean? Don't some make you smile at their cleverness or laugh out loud at their zaniness? Maybe some fill you with jealousy "Why didn't I think of that?"
 
I propose a swap where we craft our partner's user name or avatar or something that inspired our partner to choose their user name/avatar.
Some examples: Craft a sign for a craft room or booth, personalize an item of jewelry, sew a stuffy or Poppit that resembles a character or animal (i.e., Rollermama receives mama and baby sock monkeys wearing roller skates). Even something as simple as initials can inspire craftiness, (i.e, initials made out of buttons for a hoopla wall.)
The questionnaire will ask for the story behind the name/avatar, along with the usual likes and dislikes, and then the partner will take it from there.
Let's unravel the mystery of our partner's user name/avatar so that all the world can finally say--"Oh, now I get it."

hgddm: Ha Ha, glad you are interested. I was thinking of your avatar when I wrote the title of the thread.

Silentblair: I hope others think it's a great idea. I would love to do this swap. I will organize it, because, secretly, I want someone to craft my user name Cheesy.

How funny! I was thinking that might be the case Smiley I'd love to be your partner again if this swap happens!

What a neat idea! I have a kind of obvious name (it's also my kitties name) and I would LOVE stuff based on it! I will be in if it isn't a huge swap.

I was thinking a smaller swap, not too big. How about a medium or two smalls? What do you all think?

There were a bunch of these swaps held before, search under Pimp My Username and you'll find them.  This is the first one (I think):  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=103154.0

Two smalls or a medium sounds like the right size! And "Pimp my Username" sounds so funny! There are a lot of funny or unusual user names I would love to see crafted and/or know the stories behind them.

What an interesting idea for a swap. It would be interesting to learn the stories behind people's avatars/usernames.

I am still in the middle of organizing my first swap, Steampunk for the Home 2013. Perhaps March, does that sound good? I will work out the details and put out a few more specifics soon.

Thanks for your interest.

Sevsonlygirl informed me that there have been more of these swaps under the title "Pimp my User Name." I was unaware of them, but I planwant to check them out before putting out more info.
