I love EVERY idea for this swap ESPECIALLY the ones which include clothing rather than accesories... I would SO be into making/finding and decorating an entire wardrobe for someone and sending it all at once...
or you could do it in THREE installments, make the crafting time longer and ask for three items for each phase.
any which way you cut it, I'd be in Smiley.

What about if we did it so at first your just paired up randomly and maybe that would be for the accessories part of the swap (im talking 3 parts here) You send off your stuff to your assigned partner AND you send  a pair of jeans or a skirt or something you would like redone along with that package. The partner recieving your stuff would then for the next part of the swap reconstruct your pants and send it back. I hope you get what I'm saying I tried to describe in the best way I can. Does that sound good..........or no? I'm so glad so many people are interested. It makes me happy. LOL. I probably wouldn't be able to organize until my very first swap is over (middle of august, I think) but then I would be happy to do it. Anyone interested in co-organizing?

Just had a thought. How bout we add hats and scarves to the list? I'm thinking this may have to be like a 5 part swap instead of three. Is there anything you guys wouldn't be really into doing on this list. You  wouldn't  have to make one of everything they are just ideas,but if it was just a focus on pants...duh...it would have to be pants.

     I just had another idea (man they are just flowing today Grin) How bout we could just make it a 3 month swap but we combine everything like: jewelry, bags, belts, hair things, hats, scarves, and gloves into the "Part 1: Accessories" category and then shoes,socks,underwear, and Pj's could go into "Part 2: The essentials(Anyone have a better name?) Then last, but not least the Tops and Bottoms could be combined into "Part 3: Tops and Bottoms. Then we could just ask for the 1st two categories people send at least 3-5 things? What ya think?

Heres the List:

earrings/bracelets/necklaces
Shoes
Socks
Underwear
Bag
Belts
Hair things
Tops (Meaning hoodie, sweatshirt, Jackets, t-shirt, etc.)
 Bottoms (skirts, pants, capris, jeans, etc.)
Pajamas
Hats
Scarves
Gloves

You guys got any other ideas for categories? Let me know or just post them here!

NOTE: Maybe we should have it where you don't have to make the bigger projects(pajamas,bottoms,tops) necessarily. You could just reconstruct or embellish them. This might be better for people who aren't good in areas such as sewing. So they could have an option. What do you think?

Hi FunkyOlive! Soooo are you interested in the swap? Would you be into just the 3 part swap or would you like it more spread out over time?

um, i guess it was the spread out one... i'm more into the idea of clothing, hats, scarves, etc. than jewelry.
