What Does Craftster Mean To Me

When I first joined Craftster it was all about swapping.  I had belonged to a Canadian only, crochet only board and someone mentioned another group that they swapped in as well.  I contacted the lady and found out she was talking about Craftster.  After some investigation I just knew I had to join, not only to swap but to see things other than crochet.

I've been a member for 7 1/2 years and currently sit at #2 on the 'members who have swapped the most list' so obviously swapping is still a big part of why I'm here.  But I've also met new friends, learned new crafts, seen tons of fantastic projects and been exposed to crafts I didn't even know existed.  I keep telling myself it's time to slow down with the swapping but then I find new and exciting swaps and just keep going.

My entry for this challenge was created for a swap partner.  It's not my original design but the color choice was mine and since the recipient wasn't fussy about the colors, I used the brightest I could find since I love lots and lots of bright color!

homerof2--Craftster would not be the same without you...you are a swapping goddess!

I think your creativity has really shone through your beautiful embroideries...I love your ideas and your meticulous stitching...this hoop is no exception!

I first admired your lovely crochet projects and now, you have shown off some more talent as well in needlework...

wonderful challenge submission!

How fun!  And colorful!  And pretty!  And fun to receive!

I am too shy to swap Smiley but we share a similar motto!  At work I always reminded my coworkers that "creative minds are rarely tidy"

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.
