how about a swap for us single girls? kind of like an anti-guy swap. we could make each other cd's of angry girl music, journals to vent about how much guys suck, t-shirts saying "ditch him", etc. it could be good for those of us recently heartbroken, frustrated with dating, sick of guys or just happy being single.

if there's enough interest, i'd be happy to organize it.

by the way, you male crafters and those with husbands/boyfriends, we do still love you.

This sounds cool  Smiley  I love the idea of a single girl swap and think that it'll be splendid if we stick to the swap name "The Single Girl Swap!" and let folks decide on what to craft for their swap partners.  After the swap partners have been assigned, perhaps we could pm our partners and try and figure out their 'state of singleness' (i.e. just ended a relationship and in need of cheering up, just got ditched and is in a rather pissed state, enjoying life as a singleton, single but not available, etc...).  Just my 2 cents.

I would love to participate in this swap but I've already signed up to do my very first swap and won't be allowed to do others until that one is completed  Sad  However, I will keep checking this thread.  If this swap is organized after my first swap is complete, I'd join for sure!

I like the concept, but I would only want to do it from a "happy single girl" attitude - the anti-guy approach doesn't work for me.  Would this be specifically a "love sucks" kind of swap, or would it include "I'm single and I'm looking for ways to celebrate and be happy about it?"

I think the concept is terrific and I'm definitely not an anti-guy kinda gal.  Heck...it's a love-hate relationship of the good kind  Wink  However, I wouldn't mind crafting things that have anti-guy undertones if they're done with a good dose of humor.  For example, my guy friends always jest that men are better when it comes to cooking on the grill.  Well, my gal friends and I disagree and came up with the following retort "It does not take a dangly part to grill!".  I can totally see that printed on a cutesy apron!

This is terribly entertaining as my best friend and I have been discussing starting a "I don't need a guy" or the "sometimes I wish I liked girls" club....

the Guy landscape here is what one might call "lacking" for the most part Wink. I don't think i have enough posts yet though to participate.. Sad

i had more of a feminist-y/grrl power/empowering idea. when i first posted i was really anti-guy and even though i'm still single i think a focus of "being a single girl rocks" is better than guys suck...but without being too cutesy or corny. but i'd still want to keep it for single girls though.

exactly. we could make cd's of grrl/feminist music, journals to keep our fabulous thoughts in, badges/buttons/pins/magnets celebrating your singledom, things with comic "boys suck" humour, stationary with empowering quotes/phrases/lyrics and so on.

i would love to organize this swap (it'd be my first time organizing so you'd have to bear with me). as organizer i would try to pair people with similar attitudes. i wouldn't pair someone pissed off and bitter with someone who loves life as a singleton or else your crafts might crash. in any case, i'd do my best to pair wisely, asking what frame of mind you'd like to craft for.

i'm not exactly in a rush to get this off the ground since i've been busy but maybe within the next month or so. for all those interested, what's a good time for you? mid-october? earlier? later?

I'm interested!  Mid-October or a little later would be great for me...hopefully I'd have received clearance from my first swap by then!  I would love to take part in a few swaps before the holiday madness  Smiley

okay i'm editing mine cause i can actually say something... before i was in french class and we had to be leaving the computers.
i love this idea, i think it shouldn't be either I'm SINGLE AND I LOVE IT or I HATE BEING SINGLE but both, and I agree with matching people with similar opinions.  I think there are a lot of cool things that could come out of this!! Definately waiting for this, but yes mid-october would be a good time!!
