theres always somethign you wanted for christmas that you just didnt get. me i want a knitting needle case, you may want a jewelry box, and some one else may want a new bag. my idea here is that we do a swap where we try and make people what they didnt get for christmas. im not quite sure how id work it (try to pair people up by what they want..i dont know) so id like to know if anyone thinks this is a good idea for after the holidays and if so, how would i do this?

This is a great idea. I know that there will be things that I want that I will not be getting, and that is no fun. Organizing by what you want and what you can make is a good idea. I'm not sure how you would do this exactly. but I know that I'm in!!

This could be fun.

Maybe everyone who wants to participate can send in a list of crafts that they're good at and then a list of few items they wanted for Christmas but didn't get. Then you can pair up people by what they can make? I'm not sure if that would work but it's all I've got.

yea, best i can figure is in the week before christmas people send lists talking about what they can do/make and things that they would like. id have to say that everyone who signs up might not get to participate..arg. my head hurts.

Soooo is this not going to happen? I just thought it would be kinda cool but if it can't happen I understand.

Just a couple ideas...

If someone was to do this swap maybe AFTER the holiday has passed (because how do you know you didn't get something until after the day has gone by?) everyone could submit two lists. One could be the "Wants" and the other can be the "Can Do" On the "wants" list they can put a bunch of different, craftable items that they wanted but didn't recieve this holiday season. Then on the "Can do" list they put what crafts they're good at. I don't think it would be that hard to match people up as long as the items on the "wants" list aren't extremely specific. Like, if someone wants a purse they can be matched up with someone who sews, knits, crochets, felts, anything really, so I don't think people would get left out.
