i'm pondering about this one, i'll have to wait until after finals to decide though  :) but i'm a huge miyazaki fan :3 (and also just anime in general)

Post by: RondaS on December 09, 2007 11:57:29 PM
I also shall ponderously ponder this one!

I think I will use this thread as an excuse to go dig out the Totoro video that started my DD's anime fixation nearly 15 or 16 years ago...

not to mention, it is one of my favorite movies!

It is easy to see how Miyazaki became so huge, but I have to confess that I have only seen the Totoro movie, and most of the Princess Mononoke movie (missed part of it when I was watching it on TV).

I just really like Totoro. Lots.

Ronda

Many of the people who've sent in their questionnaires match up really well. I've sorta started matching up partners already. Still open to edits of course, but organizing is so much fun!!!


Title: Re: Miyazaki Swap Round 2 Sign-up dates: Dec.9-Dec.21 Sendouts: Jan.20
Post by: Harvey on December 11, 2007 05:05:10 PM
I know that some of the things I put into my pm were Ghibli and not strictly Miyasaki. ;) I hope that was OK.

Its fine, he started studio ghibli didn't he? Or at least he made it popular...

Trust me, waiting for the next two weeks to be over is going to be painful. ;D But crafting is so much fun that its almost worth it.

Post by: Prickly Venus on December 12, 2007 11:34:52 AM
yes, I am a fan of Ghibli too, even though I put Totoro as my fave movie on my questionairre, I love pom-poko and return of the cat almost as much..........

Post by: Liberry Booked on December 12, 2007 05:31:39 PM
Oh, and if anyone wants to start crafting, I have most of you paired up... pm me and if I've partnered you up I'll pm you with the info. Otherwise partners may change. ;D I think I'm an overeager first time organizer. :D

Post by: Liberry Booked on December 13, 2007 04:18:49 PM
And is it okay if I move the sign up date up one day? Or does anyone have a problem with that?

Post by: radiationbaby on December 13, 2007 05:09:18 PM
that's okay with me, personally.

Oh radiationbaby do you want you're partner? your partner has your info now I think.

And to everyone else, I'm going to put the partners that are now official on the first post. Those who haven't asked for partners will only be official if their partners have asked for their info. Otherwise they are up for change.

Post by: kamikaze_oreo on December 13, 2007 07:29:55 PM
This is so perfect! I would never have been able to do this without winter break in the middle.

It would be awesome if we could all get our partners before Christmas. (Not pressuring. Just stating.)


Title: Re: Miyazaki Swap Round 2 Sign-up dates: Dec.9-Dec.21 Sendouts: Jan.20

wow, i have a partner already?  sure, i'll take the info!   ;D

Post by: Liberry Booked on December 13, 2007 08:36:59 PM
Yeah I started the swap early so I and other people/friends in school can do it over winter break while others can do it after Christmas rush. I promise that everyone will have their partners on the 21st at the latest. As I have said before I hate to wait, and I want people to have to wait the least amount possible.

sadly, I can't join this one because it overlaps with the owl swap and I can't do more than one swap at a time... but I'll keep an eye on the gallery and take part in round 3!


Title: Re: Miyazaki Swap Round 2 Sign-up dates: Dec.9-Dec.21 Sendouts: Jan.20
Post by: Liberry Booked on December 14, 2007 03:21:09 PM
And I know this is extremely early, but forgive me I'm a first time organizer and all of this is new and exciting to me.

Though you don't have to I strongly encourage those participating in this swap to post teaser pictures in the gallery as you are making your items. It makes the swapping process much more exciting!

Here's a link to the gallery:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=213965.0

And because I forgot to add this in the questionnaires, I suggest that you pm your partners if you already have them to find out all of the Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli movies they've seen.

We don't have a tree! I have not had a real xmas tree in over 11 years. I thought this year we would have a place big enough for a tree...My boyfriend's mom has a tree made of plastic...All his presents are in my closet and I assume my presents are at his mom's...

Im new to swapping how do I sign up????

Read the first post. ^__^ There are certain conditions you have to meet. Like at least 15 posts, have to have been a craftster member for a month I think. Then if you qualify there's a questionare thing you have to fill out and send to the swap organizer which for this swap is Liberry Booked. I hope I spelled her s/n right. >_> Sorry if I didn't! There's also links under the swap thing that tells all about them. ^^ I thought you had joined the White Elephant swap though? I can't remember if thier joining rules were different. I just looked at the pretty things people were gonna be swapping. lol

I'm very anxious to get crafting... even though I need to finish 2 scarves by Christmas and Christmas Eve... but I want something NEW to make....

Woohoo!  Now that the holidays are over, I can do some serious crafting.  I have some great ideas for my partner - I can't wait to get started on this stuff over the weekend. :)

Post by: silverstah on December 28, 2007 07:37:44 PM
Well, I snuck out of work early tonight and then my plans got canceled - so I was able to work on some of my swap projects tonight.  My husband - also a big Miyazaki fan - gave me big puppy dog eyes when he saw one of the completed projects.  So now, on top of everything else, I have to make HIM one as well.

*lol*

Next time I'm going to participate in a swap with a theme that he has no interest in.  It's safer that way. ;)

Woohoo went to the bookstore and came home with a total score and not much talking to convince the kids to use their gift cards to purchase 'The Cat Returns' and 'Totoro' Picture books....we already have Kiki (lookout kamikaze_oreo) and Howl's Moving Castle, alas no Whisper of the Heart YET but I will be on the lookout!  I heart Borders cause they carry all the manga one could read and the cool books ya can't find-got The Cute Book and Plushorama for myself!

Already have my stuff started....and have to stop myself before more ideas bubble over...the kids are requesting that I make two-no wait little one is reading over my shoulder-three of everything cause they each want one-total spolied brats if ya ask me

Did I say that we have a cat that looks EXACTLY like Jiji and if he could talk he would talk like him too

I just looked up what a domo-kun is and that is pretty funny--and my kids got a catbus last year, oh man were they so excited-then they got a Appa from the Avatar TV show who was modeled from the catbus-so they say

I had way too much time on my hands over Christmas, so one item is finished, one is in its composite parts on my floor awaiting assembly, and one is yet undecided.

Sorry about that! Have moved the photo over!

Here's my weekly post... still gathering ideas, since the holidays are over.

as i am avoiding sleep, i was able to come up with an idea and craft one item...

I think I will count it to be my small item, since it's small in size, and short in crafting time, it didn't take long to make.

OK... so now a medium & a large item to go!

hmm, lets see. I got all the supplies for one of the items, I just need to assemble it. The second and third ones are still very much ideas, but I have started gathering the necessary parts. Trips to my local art stores are necessary, but some of them don't open for the year until tomorrow (when I'm working)  :(

GRRR! I was talking to my dad as I was using my sowing machine, and I accidentally put my finger under the needle! Now I need to buy a new needle (my old one broke into three pieces), I broke my nail, and pierced the skin under and next to my nail, so my index finger is freakishly sore. And I wanted to finish one of my large sewing items yesterday too... >:(

Hi y'all. I'm checking in. For some reason, it has been extremely busy at work and I've been pulling long days that cut into my crafting and forum time. I'm usually more communicative and participatory throughout the process. Sorry about that.

I have one item completely finished, and a pretty good plan for a second one, and ideas for three-plus. I have a feeling this weekend is going to be craft-intensive (for many of us, perhaps). That excites me to no end, hee hee.

Also, I'm stressing over matching fabric, as I'm not sure I can get any...

Exciting news for Dazedllama: I have finished!

Next step: drag my carcass to the post office this afternoon.

I took pictures, but my camera uses ancient CF technology for which I don't have a card reader at work, and I don't have interwebs at home, so the picture teasers will have to wait. How about a text-based teaser:

One of the items started out as something traditionally used by shops, and made its way into some homes - it has two large pieces connected by a small seam.

Another item has a small magnet in it and is hard and has a coat of shiny stuff on it.

The third item, the one I like best, is plain on the outside but kooky on the inside, with a thing that has a belly that can hold things.


Think you know? In the words of Magnum P.I.: "I know what you're thinking, and you're wrong."

Yay, I might be a day late. My large project is being a pain. I tried 'doing it' in doors and got sick from the fumes, took it outside and a stray cat almost marked it!

Yeah, sat in it, because I didn't know. He's also the one who eats yarn... I don't know why I keep him. (Probably because he's so pretty and shiny.)

I told my hubby that he would be taking the package to work with him on Monday and he informed me that 'No he would not' cause in the US it is MLK day observed and the PO will not be open, neither will the federal offices either (which is where he works) so I have to have him home for a 3-day weekend-get more sewing done then at least- but that means the packages can not go out till Tuesday!

I'm done, I'm done, I'M DONE!

This was the most stressful two weeks(I traveled the first two).  I thought my medium and small would be cake. And my large would be very difficult, it was something I haven't done in years.  But it was really like riding a bicycle, it worked out really nicely.  The other two were exhausting to fight through.  They're not as great as I had hoped, but they're the best I could do.  I hope you'll forgive me cumber.

As for teaser pics, my dad has my camera, so I'll take pictures tomorrow before I send.

I'm done, for a while it seemed like I never would.

And my large would be very difficult, it was something I haven't done in years.  But it was really like riding a bicycle, it worked out really nicely.  The other two were exhausting to fight through.  They're not as great as I had hoped, but they're the best I could do.  I hope you'll forgive me cumber.

As for teaser pics, my dad has my camera, so I'll take pictures tomorrow before I send.

I'm done, for a while it seemed like I never would.

Dont worry about it, I'm sure I will love it! I've been in like 55 swaps, I've definitley had things go wrong before. :D

I am beginning to worry for the safety of my package *pokes postal service*. It would the first time I've ever had a problem - they're usually so good. *wibble* If they say 4 to 10 days, how long before you get worried?

Ugh, I hate sending late, but I think I'm going to have to as I'm having trouble finding a box that will fit the awkwardly shaped object.
Sounds fun. Don't worry about being late, coming from NZ it will still get here pretty quick. :D

This was one of the most stressful swaps I have been involved with, nothing went the way I wanted it to and I have only been with craftster for a few months but even things I have done before...ugh...I will be sending out tomorrow..late yes I know by one day darn it...and my partner will only be getting three things instead of 4 but I will send the 4th later on after I REDO IT... went to classes today, came home I had it all ready and waiting to go and the kittens TOOK MUTA (MOOTA?) and totally decimated him, I mean shredded to the stuffing and stitches, it looked like a bad episode of CSI.  They took him right out of the box being packed that I left open till I was taking it to the PO.  They also have taken the heads off my daughters dolls too and hidden the bodies so go figure...what is wrong with them and where were they before I adopted them?  Needless to say they are spending time locked up in the bathroom tonight to sleep.  So Kamakazi Oreo I will PM you and the organizer tomorrow with the #....

Doh. It's totally my fault. It looks like I gave the wrong ZIP code in my PM to the organizer. My workplace has a receiving department that is safer than my residence, so I gave that address, but with my residential ZIP code. They're about 10 miles apart.

Luckily, the Post Office says:

Quote
In cases where mail has a street / city /state of one place but the ZIP Code area does not match, it is difficult to determine which Post Office is the actual office of destination.

   1. The U.S Postal Service dispatches mail sent in this manner to the Post Office indicated by the ZIP Code for possible delivery.
   2. If undeliverable there, it is forwarded to the Post Office as stated by city and state.

So it should be arriving soon after having a little adventure in a nearby city. I'm so sorry. Duhhhhhh.

I can't wait for it to arrive, though. I'm very excited.

I apologize for any anxiety created by my mistake. Arrrrgh. :(

OH MY GOODNESS.

My package arrived!

I can't even begin to describe how cool it is!

It is so well made and beautiful!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

(I'll post pix on Monday ... my crappy camera phone will not be able to do it justice, so I'm bringing in the big guns)

Okay so I would like to know when the following are going to mail out, or if you already have: mai apple pie, radiationbaby, kamikaze_oreo, cumber1137, and OrangeAngel23.

And everyone remember that you will not get feedback until you and your partner both receive and post pictures. I will probably start giving out feedback next week, and will be on craftster a lot less next week because of finals, so I might take longer to answer any questions you may have,

I never heard from my partner.  i know it's as easy as PMing her, but it should be her responsbility to PM me when she mails the package out and send me the DC no?  PLUS, i just checked the USPS website, and my package was delivered to her on Jan 28, and still nothing...

end vent

itscute, you may want to pm her. Looks like her first swap she sent late and never got a DC. So that may be the case again. Maybe she doesn't fully understand the rules of swapping?

I haven't recieved a reply from her in a while, but she has been on, so hopefully she will contact me or itscute soon. I just wanted to say that those who have recieved,sent, and taken pictures of their recieved packages, expect to get feedback this weekend. If you need it sooner to join another swap make sure to PM me.

Can I go ahead and post what I sent my partner in the gallery?  I know she has already gotten it but it most likely just busy!--Tabbi

ok, i definitely PMd her before the last log in, and still no reply.  I checked my mail too, nothing from her, just checking to make sure,maybe she sent and just didn't bother to PM, although since so much of swapping is based on online communication, not communication just is not kosher.

man, i just sound all whiney now... please just ignore me.

You don't sound whiny... I would probably be worse...

It's totally understandable. Seriously, if someone's going to flake, you should at least know so that you can get an angel

Hmm, my partner should have received by now. I sent the package 8 am Monday morning, Priority Mail. However, the midwest is being hit with horrible weather. My university at a snow day Wednesday and that never happens, so maybe the weather has slowed it down.. :(

Okay I updated feedback, and everyone should check to see if I missed someone or made a mistake. I think that missmuffcake still needs to take pictures, and that we are waiting on two sets of partners + 1/2 a package.
