I really want to enter, but I'm a bit hesitant, because I don't really know what would fall under something large and medium. do you maybe have some examples on what you could send with this theme?

My local fabric store doesn't have anything with cupcakes on it, not even a ribbon or button! >:(
I think I should go to a larger store in a bigger city.

Looks like I'm probably going to miss out on signups by a day or so. My partner in my first swap is out of town until the weekend now so I won't be getting feedback until then. *tear* Hope everyone else has fun though and I look forward to the gallery.

I haven't been a member for a month yet, and I haven't done two swaps before. Ugh!!! Frusterated!!! I really wish I could do this one though. I hope there's anther cupcake swap when i can actually do it. I have so many good ideas!!! Good luck crafting everyone!

Thanks kahluakiggy!! Glad you like my blog. I thought that signs ups for this swap were only until the 16th for some bizarre reason but now I know they are the 18th I may just get in by the skin of my teeth! I'm going to be really bummed out if I miss out becuase I'm the one who suggested it. *insert violin playing here*

If there is any chance you can extend it by maybe 1-2 days that would be amazing! Hope this doesn't upset any other people because by the sounds of it alot of you are eager to recieve partners and begin. Sorry  :-[

I'm usually very excited to get partners but I have no problem waiting for someone that really wants to be in the swap.

By the way, your little saying below your picture cracks me up every time I see it. I was born with a slight birth defect that made it so my tummy didn't fully close in the womb. My intestines were floating around with me. When I was born they shoved everything back in (including the cut umbellical cord) and sewed me up. Therefore, I've never had a belly button in my whole life. This "belly button lint" all of you talk about.... I can't even imagine. That's just nasty.  ;D

Not that it's up to me, but I have no problem waiting a few extra days. I would be disappointed if I was in the same boat, so I completely understand. The more the merrier! :D

OOh, this is going to be so much fun, I have about 6,352 ideas (well, more like 5 or 6 but...) ;D

where can i buy cupcake fabric?

I found 2 styles at JoAnn's yesterday. Not sure if every location would have them, but it's worth checking. The sales girl at the store told me that they've been receiving a lot of cupcake stuff recently, so I'm guessing that other stores are getting it too. I doubt that the store by me is THE cupcake store :)

I can hardly wait for partners.  I already crafted some cupcakes things but if it is not in my partners taste I will just keep them for myself.  I have lots of ideas rolling around in my puny brain and I bought the cutest cupcake fabric too.  What's not to like with cupcakes?

I have had a very productive weekend so far. My daughter had her wisdom teeth out on friday so I have been taking car of her.  But she has mostly been sleeping so I have had lots of crafting time.  I finished several things Friday and Saturday.  I too have tons of ideas and I keep coming up with many more.  I may have to spoil my partner just a bit.

OK so just checking in. I have been mainly just planning out ideas in my sketch book so far. I have quiet a few so I think I am going to have to pick the best ones or I'll never be done in time! haha. I'm off to the zombie walk here in Brisbane in a few hours. I have a face covered in paint and latex wooo! Will get started on crafting tomorrow!

I finished one of my small items tonight- it was a lot of fun to make and I hope my partner loves it.  :3

Ugh, my brain is so full of ideas I just wanna send my partner a car-sized box of cupcake stuff.  XD 

The only trouble I'm going to have is how to use the cupcake fabric I got- I am not used to using this sort of fabric so I am not sure how I am going to go about sewing it.  I am more used to sewing by hand, but I may have to pull out the ol' sewing machine and try to remember how to use the darn thing.  Haha!  I'm sure I'll come up with something.  :3

Checking in! I've been working on some medium/smalls. I think it's going pretty well so far. DH went to Hobby Lobby for me yesterday to get some supplies and he got everything right! So everything is going well for me so far.

Post by: grey_pearl on May 25, 2008 02:00:24 PM
checking in...
started the smalls/medium a few days ago, and i have the large all planned out, i just have to sit down and do it. i'm taking about a week off of work for my wisdom teeth (which are being stolen on thursday), so i should have extra craft time.


Title: Re: Cupcake Swap Round 2- Signups CLOSED Sendouts 16th June
Post by: SunflowerSmiles on May 25, 2008 05:58:07 PM
My large is almost finished, just have to add some finishing touches...my problem is I never leave well enough alone!!  and I have a couple mediums about a third done...I get to have my gallbladder out this next weekend(wooo. whoo.) so I'll have some crafting time next weekend too!  this swap makes me very happy! 


Title: Re: Cupcake Swap Round 2- Signups CLOSED Sendouts 16th June
Post by: kahluakiggy on May 25, 2008 08:01:47 PM
Man, I want minor surgery that gets me extra crafting time...  ;D  Better yet, extra crafting time, minus the surgery!  lol

No, seriously, I hope you  both have quick and painless recoveries!

I don't know my schedule for next week yet, so I'm not positive when I'll have crafting time yet, but I got several bits of things done today.  Tomorrow all the kids are home from school, so I don't think I'll manage to do the large as I had hoped, but I can probably finish off some things while they're fighting over *everything*.  lol


Title: Re: Cupcake Swap Round 2- Signups CLOSED Sendouts 16th June
Post by: SunflowerSmiles on May 25, 2008 09:08:56 PM
I hope it's painless too!! LOL  For some reason my gallbladder wants to make rocks so out it goes!  Hey, maybe it'll be pretty and I can make something out of it.....ok ...that's a little too much....anyhoo...I hope everyone is having a good time cupcake crafting!!!!! So next weekend I'll have a good excuse to craft and NOT clean the house!!! (sigh.... the ways I avoid house work)

*checking in*

I am working on the large and one of the small now - I'm also making a dress to wear to my brother's wedding this upcoming weekend, so there will be more intense cupcaking starting next week. ;D

I hope it's painless too!! LOL  For some reason my gallbladder wants to make rocks so out it goes!  Hey, maybe it'll be pretty and I can make something out of it.....ok ...that's a little too much....anyhoo...I hope everyone is having a good time cupcake crafting!!!!! So next weekend I'll have a good excuse to craft and NOT clean the house!!! (sigh.... the ways I avoid house work)   

my bestest friend had her gall bladder removed, and from what i understand the fact that you aren't in pain from the gall bladder being there more than makes up for any pain from the surgery. plus they give you good happy drugs :D -you may have minor difficulty crafting on the narcotics though ;D

My brain is in cupcake overload which is a good thing.  I am thinking everything cupcake and I have come up with way to many ideas.  My DD has been recoupingfrom wisdom teeth extraction so I have had plenty of crafting time this weekend because she has mostly been sleeping.  I have most everything done and I am pleased with how everything turned out.  I need to get it in the mail before I make anything else.  So much fun.

Do I check in by answering in this topic? I'm sorry I've only been in 2 swaps until now and i've never heard of it before. I feel stupid now :-\
Well anyways, i'm checking in then. I've already contacted my partner and asked her a few things. I've started crafting some parts, but haven't finished anything yet. I just hate the local craft stores here, they just don't have what I need! It's so annoying!

Wee, just got back from an extended birthday/memorial day weekend at both my parents' and the in-laws' places.  Had a great time, but I didn't bring any craft supplies at all!  I'm excited to get started on projects. :)

I'm really excited to have a partner from a different country, too!  Man, I'd love to be an Aussie. ;)  At least I can settle with being a California girl!

Wee, just got back from an extended birthday/memorial day weekend at both my parents' and the in-laws' places.  Had a great time, but I didn't bring any craft supplies at all!  I'm excited to get started on projects. :)

I'm really excited to have a partner from a different country, too!  Man, I'd love to be an Aussie. ;)  At least I can settle with being a California girl!

Haha that's funny because I've always been in love with California.  ???

I just wanted to check in with my partners.  I already have one small item and I've got sooo many ideas I'm trying to narrow them down to what I'm actually going to make.  I'm so excited to see a gallery of this swap.  Sorry I didn't check in by Saturday.. I must have missed that detail!

HAHAHA :)

It's funny how not hard to find cupcake stuff is when you are actually looking for it. I think it's trendy right now (Betsey Johnson just came out with a line of cupcake-printed handbags that I saw while walking through the department store on my way to work today - not sure if this is exciting or terrifying), but ALSO they are ROCKIN'! ;D

I just finished one of my small items and just need to hear back from my partner about one detail so I can finish the second small item. Got all the materials for two other projects tonight too. Not sure which will be medium and which will be large - I'll have to see how long they take :D

i said i was going to make cupcakes the other day, and I did, but ..they turned out awfully! they sunk because i had them in at too high a temp, and burnt on the outside! :( oh dear.

I've finished the med and 1 small item. I just started working on the large item, and need to buy some things for the other small item  :D Hopefully I'll get a chance to go to the shops sometime this week. I'd forgotten how annoying it can be working evenings. (sleep late, and then am commuting/working when the shops are open!)

I've worked on a little bit of everything because sometimes I have trouble focusing on one thing for too long.  XD  Finished a couple of items, though.  My partner and I agreed to do a few more items for our swapping pleasure, but there is so much I want to do I may end up sending her more.  I want to do my large item today, but I am a wee bit scared because it is my first time doing this sort of craft.  Hopefully I won't screw it up!  I guess if I do I can always try again, and if I mess up a second time I do have a back up plan.  :D

Happy crafting to all!

Post by: Dreambelle on May 31, 2008 07:37:31 PM
I had so much fun shopping for this swap. Definitely the most amount of money I've ever spent on a swap because every time I saw something with a cupcake on it I bought it. I have no idea what I'm going to do with anything. I've almost got my large finished but then I'm stuck deciding what NOT to make. I've never been in a swap before where my ideas were endless. This is great!


Title: Re: Cupcake Swap Round 2- Signups CLOSED Sendouts 16th June
Post by: MightyMouse on June 01, 2008 05:27:39 AM
I actually got more done than I thought I would, so I am currently finishing my large and medium. Now I'll think up a few extras and I'll be ready to send soon!

Well, unfortunately, I've been getting ready for my daughter's birthday party this week, so the count is still the same for me, but I have all of the materials for my large prepped and ready to go, and all this week to work on it.  My cupcakes came out pretty badly, but she's 7, she'll love them.   ::)  I'm too critical.  Yeah.  That's what I keep telling myself.  lol  Now I should go clean, since people will be here at 1.  Eep.

I think it has partially to do with time spent, so if the two combined took the time of a large, and your partner is OK with it, I think that's OK. BUT I am not the final word :)

Well anyway, I'm going to make another small item today.

Checking in!

Hello Everyone!  Sorry I've been M.I.A.  I was in South Dakota visiting my family and they have dial-up... :o  I don't have the patience to access the internets without hi-speed, but I'm back and soooo ready for some cupcaking!  I have some smalls finished and a bunch of supplies and ideas.  I plan to craft like mad this weekend.  I'm also planning a first b-day party for my ds, cupcake themed of course, so my brain is in cupcake overload!   :D

Ohhh, I've checked-in already, but I'll do it again.  :D

Okay, I finished one of my large/medium items, the one I was most worried about because I never made one of those crafts before!  It's a bit on the simple side, but I think it is REALLY cute!  I hope my partner likes it.  :3  I want to try and get my biggest item done before the week is up, plus most of my other items.  That means I can't really go out much this week, but that is okay, I REALLY need to catch up on my swaps!  I have another craft I'm going to try that is new to me this week as well.  It should be fun.   ;D

Checking in  ;D OK, so I have one small done, my medium half done and have started on my large....my medium really is a large though because I have already spent hours upon hours on it haha. I have to think about what my other small and a few extras can be but I'm pretty sure I know what I am doing. I'm hoping to be sending in about a week or so...maybe a few days early. So excited to recieve cupcakey goodness and soooo nervous about sending out my stuff. The whole "will they/won't they like it" totally kills me!

yep that is it

its when someone disappears or doesn't send during a swap then we would need a swap angel, which is someone who steps up and sends a package even if they may not get one back.

Checking in...again.  I have my large item completeted and two items that I would consider to be medium done. I also have a small item done and an idea for another small item.  I can't wait to be completely finished so that I can wrap and package everything up, which is honestly my favorite part of presents.

Checking in a day early- my weekend computer access is spotty at best, so I'd rather be early than late! Both my smalls are completely finished, and my two mediums (we agreed to do two mediums instead of a med and a large) are coming along. One's close to finished, but the other one is seriously causing me some aggravation. At least it's all cute to look at.

hey cherryrose, I am currently adding the finishing touches to your items, and next week I'll be able to send out! I bet it won't take long for the package to arrive (germany and holland aren't that far, I could almost deliver myself :D )

All I have left to do is a medium. I have a great idea but don't know how to sew, so I'm going to figure out how to make this particular item a different way.

I love this swap :)

after spending months of my childhood trying to seperate the colors and NOT to destroy all my hard work when carrying it to the ironing board I recently saw some great projects with them on flickr and on a sudden wave of nostalgia I bought two buckets of beads on ebay. And again, I spilled the beads everywhere... :D

I finished a few things, but I'm still a bit behind on where I would like to be.  I've been feeling ill and I'm having to send late in the OWS 34 swap because of it.  No worries- I won't be sending late in this swap!  I've just been feeling tired from being sick and I feel just plain crummy.  I'm beginning to feel a bit better...

I finished a few things, but I'm still a bit behind on where I would like to be.  I've been feeling ill and I'm having to send late in the OWS 34 swap because of it.  No worries- I won't be sending late in this swap!  I've just been feeling tired from being sick and I feel just plain crummy.  I'm beginning to feel a bit better...

Sorry to hear that, partner, I hope you feel better soon!

I'll be sending on Monday because something is taking longer than I expected...  My large turned out to be tiny in size, although it literally took me like 5 hours to get it right.  It was the first time I've _______ _______ successfully, I was so happy that it finally worked out!!!  But I have to wait for the paint to dry on the _________ before I can send.  (lol - I don't have teaser pics yet - this is the best I can do.)

Checking in again. I think I will be sending 1-2days late. I hope this is ok with my partner. The large is taking just a smidge longer than suspected as it is my first time sewing from scratch...plus without a pattern. It looks freakin great, I'm just a big slow. Hopefully it's worth the wait. I promise LOTS of effort is going into your things.  ;D

Well, today and Monday are my weekend from work, so I will most likely be sending on tomorrow, Monday, but if I don't get the last of my stuff done today I might need to send on Tuesday. 

Probably sending tomorrow though, everything's mostly done.

Maybe I'll get a few other little things put together tonight as a bonus :)

sent!

BUT... *sigh* I got a ride to the post office with a friend who I was running errands with anyway, and in all the frenzy plus a torrential downpour between wal*mart and the post office I forgot to get tissue at Wal*Mart to wrap everything in AND I forgot to take pictures AND I forgot to enclose my note. UGH!  :(

SO... I don't think anything will break, but it is just all stuck in the priority mail box, and not all pretty. And I have no teaser pics. And there's no note.

But at least it's in the mail?  ???

(has had a bad day)
