SWAP JUNKIES--We Want A Double Rainbow of Goodies!

I am restarting this craftalong because there are just too many swaps that many of us can't join but we want to craft!!!

This is a craftalong for swap junkies.

Do you love swapping?  Do you love getting inspired by swap themes?  Do you maybe get more done with a deadline?

BUT.....

Are you trying to save money? (shipping is pricey!), or maybe you love a theme, but you want to make certain items?  

Whatever your reasons, feel free to join up!
In this craftalong we will be "fake-joining" swaps that are current.  Then we will craft along the parameters of the swap, including send out dates, what needs to be sent, and if extras are allowed or encouraged;  at the end of the swap period we will give ourselves the things we have made!

For example...(fake example)
I want to join the Carnivorous Plant swap, but I don't have a lot of money for shipping this month, and I really want a mug rug embroidered with a plant , so I'm going to fake swap.

I will post in this thread like this:

My name is alwaysinmyroom
I am joining the Carnivorous Plant Swap.
I will make 1 mug rug for this swap
It is due by September 15, 2014.

And now I'm signed up!

I am organizing this fake swap, so I'll keep track of all the participants, and send out reminders when people's swaps are almost due.  When you have finished your item(s), please post here gallery style, so we can all congratulate you!!

Just to be clear, you can sign up here to fake-participate in ANY swap...and I'll let you fake-join up to 5 fake-swaps.

Please, only sign up if you are serious about completing the swaps.  I understand that life happens, but I'll take time every day (or 2 or 3) to update everything, so please don't sign up if you're not going to try, you know?

My name is alwaysinmyroom.

I am Fake joining the Frugal Living Swap

I am going to make some gift tags using old holiday cards, gift bags using bits of leftover sock yarn, and bake olive bread...three loaves...one to eat, one to freeze and one to give.

Due date to get these done is September 8, 2014.

My partner might want some extras, so I will see what else I can dig up.

Hurrah!   Cheesy  I have a feeling I'll be fake swapping some in the weeks ahead, as I don't think I can craft and get feedback fast enough to join some coveted swaps.  PerfectlyBohemian rescued me for the Carnivorous Plants swap by asking me to join IYP with a carnivorous plants theme to our crafting, but there are others I don't think I'll be able to join...

Ooh, I like this idea. I might have to follow along later. I am currently swap full, and don't have the room to spend crafting other things right now. Perhaps in a week or two. I'll be watching what everyone here "swaps" until then. Wink

It can be any swap that is current or able to start.  I have room to swap some more, but I don't want to over commit since I have two partners in the IYP...if I flake on myself, oh well! Grin
