We haven't done a Friends of Craftster (FOC) swap in quite awhile, what do you all think?  It's a secret swap too, so it's double the fun!  I'm thinking signups beginning July 8th - July 21 with sendouts on Sept. 1st.


Friends of Craftster's (F.O.C.'s) only for this swap.  Partners will be secret so you will need to pay close attention to their questionnaire and/or stalk them! 

FOC is when you donate money to Craftster to help pay for things OR you're a swap angel.. you must have the Friend of Craftster logo under your name to join.  For details on how to become a FOC, go here.

this is going to be a secret project - You will be matched up with a partner and we will make several things for them and send them.

We will be making 1 medium item and 2 small items.  Ofcourse you are free to send extra's, but remember that you don't know who is sending to YOU, so there's no telling if you'll be getting extra's or not.    Each participant will also be giving 5 themes in their questionnaire - your partner may craft to your themes or by post stalking you - it'll be a surprise!!

what are you, a mind reader?  I was just thinking it would be awesome if someone did an FOC swap, and a secret one would be double the awesomeness!

Yes!   I think this would be fun!   Cheesy   And yes, so many great swaps to pick from lately.  I have my 5 spots filled right now, but I should be getting feedback for one of them any day now so I should have one open by signups.   Cheesy

Good luck with your surgery - but if you want to be FOC, another way to do it is to angel for a flaked package.  Keep an eye out for requests for Angels.

Exactly!  That's how I first became a FOC - from angeling!  It's a great way to give back to the Craftster community!

artista - good luck with your surgery!

I'll go ahead and plan on doing this swap, since so many are interested. Smiley

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

What do you mean by themes? I want to start brainstorming my five but not sure if theme refers to the medium or design or something else...

in other words, would theme be "hoopla" "birds" or "bird hoopla" or some thing else altogether? Thanks!

Themes would be for example:

1 - violets
2 - giraffes
3 - tv show Dexter
4 - Day of the Dead
5 - Doctor Who

Does that help?

How sad is it that I just saw that list and automatically started thinking of crafted items to do.  Then again, I saw the word hoopla and got excited.  I think I need to get out more.  Then again, I am also using Craftster to procrastinate on my current job du jour which is  (gasp) cleaning out my craft room (insert gentle weeping and sobs of overwhelmed terror here).

This sounds like fun... I promised the fiance I'd cut back on swaps before the wedding though... But send outs are in September, which is doable... I'm gonna think really hard about this one.
