Title: Lyrical Inspiration Swap (signups: closed; mailout: 07/31)
Post by: teddybearbones on June 25, 2006 01:58:37 PM
Swap name: Lyrical Inspiration Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: teddybearbones
Sign-up date range: june 25 until jul 10
Date to send item by: july 31

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? please get permission if under 18.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: yes

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: yes



Details of swap:

This is a smallish swap. You are only required to make one large item and one small item, or three small items. We are taking inspiration from our partner's favourite lyrics and making them some neat fun stuff from it. The way it goes is you list 5 (or more) of your favourite songs for lyrics (the words) who they're by and such, then list the lyrics. Please remember to change colour, or font style (so that the names and lyrics are easy to differentiate) for each song when you fill out the form. Please also write them out, or copy them in verse form (like you'd see them on your CD cases) instead of a block of text.

How it would work is:

I've got Bobna as my partner her favourite songs are:

1. Sad Lisa -- Cat Stevens
2. Suzanna -- Jim Croce
3. Gold Dust Woman -- Fleetwood Mac
4. Time After Time -- Cyndi Lauper
5. Sonne -- Rammstein

(..and her lyrics are listed underneath in matching colours so I know which one is which and where one starts and the other ends..)



I decide to make her three small things:

I get the idea to stencil a T-shirt with a blazing sun from Sonne (which is all about destructive fire and light from the sun..)

Gold Dust woman inspires me to make her a Spoon Bracelet ("Take your silver spoon, dig your grave")

Time After Time inspires me to make her a nice mixed paper journal ("Flashback, warm nights.. all that's left behind.. a suitcase of memories..")

Then I toss in some candy because I do that, and send it off ;]
...

Post by: sissychrissy1 on June 28, 2006 05:11:26 PM
Oh, man, I thought I was totally set to send in my information, had my info typed out and everything, but then I looked at my top 25 most played songs on itunes and realized there are two more songs that I wonder if I should use instead.  Decisions, decisions!

Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on June 28, 2006 07:34:48 PM
sissychrissy - isn't that the hardest part?  I debated a long time on a fifth sone.  I knew immediately what the first 4 would be, but the fifth one took a long time to decide.

I wish that we could see the songs everyone chose even if they aren't our partner.  It'd be so neat to see what people chose as five of their favorite songs!

When signups are done I'll post a list of all the songs people sent me, that way we don't get this thread over run by people posting their top 5 fave songs for lyrics until after signups.

Post by: Kitten Wrangler on July 02, 2006 03:53:52 AM
I've just signed up... I guess I'm now pending acceptance....

I made it easier on myself. I stuck to picking 5 songs from Australia - well, strictly speaking, one of them is a New Zealand band. But I stayed firmly away from trying to pick a favourite Nick Cave song!

my apologies now for whomever gets me.  i picked some really obscure songs and bands... ><  mostly local houston bands.  I included a URL to where you could hear all the songs but one of them.  so i hope that helps.  i'm gonna keep a lookout on the other song and maybe the artist will put it back up somewhere.  ^^

i'm so excited!

weeee!  lol

Just as a quick aside here:

LOOK what happens to my place when I start crafting for a swap!  :o  :o  :o

The craft! It just takes over! I'd retreat to the one other room in my apartment - but my clothes are currently using it as a breeding ground.

Posting of items will be done on time. The cleaning up afterwards will take until the end of the week!

Post by: teddybearbones on July 30, 2006 02:12:07 PM
Lol! that's kinda like my room.. 'cept my bed isn't on the floor XD


Title: Re: Lyrical Inspiration Swap (signups: closed; mailout: 07/31)
Post by: Kitten Wrangler on July 30, 2006 02:50:41 PM
It's not actually my bed - I had the spare mattresses out coz I've had people stay overnight. But what's ended up happening is that it's easier for me to heat the loungeroom than my bedroom, so I've dragged out a couple of pillows and a couple of my blankets, so I can sleep in the warm loungeroom.   ;)  Eeesh!

Post by: cumber1137 on July 31, 2006 02:38:22 PM
Kitten Wrangler, I know how you feel, my bedroom is a mess! I dont know what Im going to do when I move into the dorms. I have spent the first two years of college living at home, but I dont think all my fabric and craft stuff will fit in the little room I share!


Title: Re: Lyrical Inspiration Swap (signups: closed; mailout: 07/31)
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on July 31, 2006 02:50:16 PM
Good lord, I'm glad I didn't craft much when I was in college, those rooms are pretty little!  I think ours was 12x12 or something like that.  We did have a loft bed, so that freed up some space, but my roomies clothing and hair crap and makeup took up a lot of space.LOL

Post by: cumber1137 on July 31, 2006 03:43:31 PM
As far as i know i might be backing out on on campus housing because my mom screwed up on the FAFSA and i got a ton less of financial aid so we are trying to fix that.
 I just noticed that send out is today. Wow, it feels like forever when I sent my stuff out. Does that mean I can recieve feedback now??? The "in progress" slot change to "positive" will free up a chance to join another swap. :D


Title: Re: Lyrical Inspiration Swap (signups: closed; mailout: 07/31)
Post by: ChloeisCrazy on July 31, 2006 03:48:37 PM
if your partner has recieved already you can get a positive, haha I do that all the time, ask for feedback early so I can join more things!


Title: Re: Lyrical Inspiration Swap (signups: closed; mailout: 07/31)
Post by: cumber1137 on July 31, 2006 05:40:56 PM
Yeah she recieved like a week and a half ago. Hopefully, teddybearbones catches up on us and leaves some feedback so i can get my swappin' on.
