I'd love to join, as well. I was in the Ongoing Baby/Kiddo Swap for three rounds, and it was so much fun!

Working on my list, sending in the questionnaire right now.

I know the postage is a little painful at times, but I LOVE having so many international swappers in the group!

I haven't swapped in a looooong time.  More than two years, I think.  I've been focusing on handmade ceramics, and I'm participating in a sale in a few weeks.  Many of the others are potters and ceramicists with many more years of experience and much more refined pieces than my own, so I expect that I'll have plenty left after the sale is done.  I signed up in hopes that some of my pieces might fit the bill for someone in this swap!

I have functional pieces such as dip bowls, serving pieces, and spoon rests.  I have some pendants (not all are finished, so I guess I should get on that) and pins.  Also, I realize that buttons generally go into the supply category, but I've made quite a few in sets of 3-4, and they're finished pieces that I've made with a lot of care.  (My finished pieces can be your supplies!)

The process of building, drying, waiting for the pieces to be fired, glazing, waiting for them to be fired again, and potentially having to glaze and refire if there are glaze defects means that I can't craft to specs with a two-week turnaround.  Not even close.  But I have way more pieces than I can handle for myself and if I have something I think you'd like, then I'd love to share.  But I'll mostly lurk until I find out what's left after the sale. 

I stated in the questionnaire that I can't ship outside the US, since most items have to be wrapped in a lot of packing material and may be fragile.  However, I can make an exception for smaller items such as buttons and pendants.  Those could be packed in a padded envelope and I'd be confident about shipping them that way.

I would love to add ceramic buttons to my list Bigmouth but I don't think I will be joining this round after all  Sad My computer is old and dying and I can't always get online and when I do get on not everything goes according to plan! I haven't been able to access my inbox for days now *sigh* fingers crossed I can get things fixed by next round! I really want to be in OWS100  Grin

I'm getting a bit nervous here, there are already two packages on their way and I haven't sent out anything yet! Good thing it will definitely take awhile until they arrive, because I tend to finish up and mail out pretty close to or on sendout day so far. Working on that.

Something special for 100? Trying to get 100 claims in December. Other than that I can only think of glitter, and cookies. Or trying to incorporate a hundred of something somewhere in the actual projects, which is easier with beads (seed beads) or embroidery/crosstitch. Or just like a signature, have OWS100 somewhere? Hm. But imagine a gallery with 100 picture posts...

The challenge of organizing an ongoing swap every month is starting to sink in - 99 is well started, 98 still has a bunch of packages to be sent and received, 96 is still open because of an international package that went astray and has been resent. It is getting more difficult to keep track of everything. Please don't hesitate to tell me when I get someone's information mixed up or if I have your claim status incorrect. Please include the round number when you message me about a claim. My weekend computer time is fairly limited compared to my weekday computer time so everything will be updated tomorrow.

Okay, my first seam for the beach towel tote was not too much of a problem with the sewing machine but then I hit the end of the seam where the toweling was doubled over. This made my sewing machine very unhappy. My next seam was impossible to do in the sewing machine so I have given up on my machine for this project. 12 feet of binding hand sewn on? hmm fun times Cheesy I think I will watch the avengers another 2 or 3 times while doing it.
