Do you love having your funny bone tickled, snort out loud at foibles and quirks that maybe cause others to look askance at you?  Share your love of Seuss, Monty Python, Lewis Carroll, or share some new nonsense with a partner by joining in our Complete Nonsense Swap

This will be a three point swap where 3 points can be 1 large item, or a medium and a small item, or three small items to craft.  Extras are optional and should be discussed with your partner.

For those unsure of the point system, here it is outlined as per the Swap FAQ:



There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Remember, the important thing is that you and your partner agree.  If you want to make each other a purse for a shawl, go ahead.  Just make sure you're being fair, you communicate with your partner and you meet the guidelines outlined in the Swap Guide as well as additional guidelines setup by the Organizer of the particular swap. Think to yourself with each item you include: would this seem like a large item to me if I received it, or is it more on the medium or small side? Obviously, each project is different.  These are just suggestions. Send something that you are proud of and that you would be happy to receive.

Oh no... I sososososo want to join this one, but my wedding is in 4 weeks and I'm afraid to take on too much because - like so many kindred spirits here at Craftster - that is my tendency. But the little crafter in my head keeps whispering "you could totally make three small items or a medium and two smalls..." Well, I still have some time to decide  Wink

Man I have no willpower - I was going to go swap-free for a bit but after participating in the Gorey swap my love for nonsense has grown exponentially.

I would love a little nonsense, especially as I finish the other three swaps. I joined! My questionnaire was filled with Shel Silverstein and Suess. Looking forward to partners.

noodle bug, I loved Shades of Grey/Road to Saffron, depending on what version you have. Spoons spoons spoons! But I haven't read his Thursday Next series, because I'm not a big classic lit person, so I feel like all the Jane Eyre and Sherlock jokes would go over my head.

I don't know why it didn't occur to me Fforde could be nonsense, but thinking again, yeah. He's punished by counting chairs, it IS totally ridiculous.
