Would you craftsters be interested in a "every part of my wardrobe swap"? It would probably be like a 6 or 9 month swap where each month there was a new theme for what was to be reconstructed or made. For instance:

January=earrings/bracelets/necklaces
Febuary=Shoes
March=Socks
April=underwear might be a sticky subject,:-\but why not. They wouldn't be made, just decorated. Unless you really wanted too.
May=Bag
June=Belts/Hair things
July= Shirt
August=Pant/Skirt
September=Pajamas

Let me know what you think. If anyone wants to organize it. It's fine by me!

THis would be really fun but I dont think I'd be up up for the comitment, and some of the things on that list I'd be ok doing but some of the others I would be stuck as I'm not that great at crafty-ness (yet!)

On the other hand a decorated underwear swap might be fun  Wink  Grin

What if we did it as an accessory swap so it was only 4 or 5 months long?
Example:

January=earrings/bracelets/necklaces
Febuary=Shoes
April=Socks and Underwear
May=Bag
June=Belts/Hair things

What do you guys think of that?

it might work out better for you if you did separate sign ups for each month.  that way no one feels committed to a year-long (or 6 months, etc) swap.  and if they do not want to participate in a particular theme (underwear or anything else), then they don't have to.  might be a good guard against flakers who are gung ho in the beginning, but fizzle out by month 3.

Thanks for the advice  sleepywalkin! I've never organized a swap before so I need all the advice I can get. So your just saying to have a swap up saying "Underwear Swap" and then the next month have a seperate swap for the "Belts and Hairthings", but let the people know who did the underwear swap that this is sort of a sequel to that? How does everyone else feel about this?

yeah, or maybe make the title - "create my wardrobe swap - phase 1"  or month 1, theme 1, etc.  and then details in the post.  that way people can easily follow it.  just a though!

What if it was kind of all combined into one swap where you did just one huge package or do you think people wouldn't be quite into that, or what if it was just a 3 month swap? People have done those easily before, no problems. I think.... Undecided LOL What do you think of that, but I like the phase 1 thing too. Would you be interested?
