I'm in! I just need time to do the questionaire.

I'm sad nobody has signed up yet. Perhaps you could put a link from the discussion about the fav colors swap in  the New Ideas board so that people know you've created the swap.

oh nevermind, I see you've already posted a link.
So since we have to do 4 points, can it be any combo, or do you and your partner have to do the same combo?

Are we doing points by size, cost or time?


Title: Re: Favorite Color Swap R2- (Signups May 29- June 11) SENDOUTS July 17th
Post by: MEshelltakeone on June 02, 2008 02:10:14 PM
they are all approved methods. i personally use crafting TIME, unless i purchased something that was a tad expensive...so its up to you and your partner!

here is what the guidelines say:

15. What is the typical size of swap packages?

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Big = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Big = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Mine is grey. Don't ask me why, but I'm obsessed with grey. Don't get me wrong, I'm not unhappy or so ;), grey is just beautiful.

I like gray, too!  However, I opted for my more bright colors as favorites - orange is my favorite individual color, I think.  However, I'm more of a color combination girl.  I like orange and pink.  But my favorite all time color combination is green and lavendar.  My whole room is those colors.

I really want to do this swap!  I am going to fill out the questionnaire later today.  I am full on swaps if I add this one but I just sent a package yesterday so I should get feedback from that in a few days. I am sending out another swap tomorrow too so I will be a little less swap-swamped when this starts.
I can't wait to get going on this!!!  ;D  My color (combo) choice will be brown and blues (any shade)- that combo gets me all warm and fuzzy.  ;D

if you sent me a questionaire, you should have this swap in your profile and you should be on the list!!

THERE ARE ONLY 4 SPOTS LEFT
so if you are thinking of joining, now is the time!!

if we get to 25 people and no one wants to help co-organize, then i guess i will close early and give out partners!! ;D

oooh.. who is the reserved spot? lol.

I was also wondering this.

I figured out what she meant after a bit, but at first I thought, "How weird, someone's Craftster name is **reserved**." Normally I'm quicker than that...

 :D

PARTNERS ARE UP!!!!!

NOTES: your name may be missspelled, and i havent sent PM's yet, but go ahead and start stalking!!

Also, it was hard pairing everyone up, so i hope everyone likes their partner!! :o


Lastly: i cant believe how many of you requested NO crochet/knitted items, (whether you do the craft or not) wimper...kind of makes me sad, as a crocheter.....but also kind of funny too... or at least odd.



STALK ON!!!!


OH!!! more importantly: Ceruleaneyes is my co-organizer, so if she PM's you with your partners info, she is the one to contact with issues and check ins.

I have made some boo boos and accidentally switched partners and info and....ugh.

SO, look at the partner list ( because it is accurate) and look at your PM with your partners info, and make sure they match, in other words, make sure i have sent ( or resent) you the correct questionaire!!!!!!

so sorry everyone, i was trying to do this at work and kept getting distracted.

i will be on and off here all day, so let me know asap.

THanks!!!! :-* :-*

I've proved to myself (again) that it takes less time for me to craft some things than it does to pick the beads to make it... I think I may have a problem getting the pile down to a size where my partner doesn't feel like she's gotten avalanched :P  bother...

and I still can't find that bit of teal brocade.. I KNOW I have it somewhere...

shouldn't this swap thread be in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED and not in Craft Swaps ? just wondering!

I'm a sub at my son's school, and right now they are doing summer school, and I was called to sub this week (for preschoolers), I get off at 1 pm but by the time I get home I'm so tired, little kids can get so much out of you.
I haven't had any crafting time.. so I'll start crafting next week.

My partner has such great color tastes!  My only problem is I have about 204934398493 things I want to make her.  Oh well, I guess I'll have to spoil her. :]

I needed to stock up on some necessities anyway, no harm in getting some more schtuff at AC Moore.

Mine doesn't panic, he just gives me a *look* and asks do I Really Need whatever it is... For a man who is of English and German decent he does Jewish Guilt Really well.

But he's agreed to me getting almost $30 in thread because he's getting a new decorated surcoat out of it  ::)  go figure...

My fella never ever moans or complains about my spending on supplies, in fact he tends to throw things in the basket whether I've decided I want them or not ....then he wonders whee all the money went  :o *lol* I am trying to craft mainly from stash this year though, to make room for re-doing my craft alcove in the bedroom  ;D If I can get things down to a more manageable level I can have new shelving etc.

I get complaints when I visit the craft dept at walmart. To go to an actual craft store youd think I was taking him to the vet. He especially hates it when I find clearance yarn or a good remnant pile and buy it all up. Baby.

My old cat (gone to kitty heaven at age 15) and my dad's cat (still going at almost 17) used to "help" by laying on any fabric I laid out to cut.  Dad's cat at least would lay inside the cutting lines and flip his tail out of the way...

The current fuzzy is a lump.. you can quite Literally pick her up my her tail and she'll just purr, no claws, not bite just happy chirrups and purrs, put her down and she's wrapping around your ankles asking you to do it again!  if you pick her up normal she wants Down now please... weirdo..

I'm about half done, down to something with the brocade, which I found!

those are great fun... you just have to make sure you don't pull your yarn to tight when you warp it... other than that they are really easy, just wish they made them in a gauge for threads like oh... crochet thread...

brocade is cut...  and job interview is over.. (results were Meh...) so will be sewing..

I'm about 3/4 of the way through one of my items, and it's so freaking awesome. I really want to keep it for myself.  ::)

I'm a little confused, though. Everyone keeps talking about "all the things" they are crafting, so I feel like I've missed something. I was going to do two mediums, but everyone is making me feel like a slacker. Did I read the rules wrong? Or is everyone just going over the top while I'm being a crappy swap partner?

Actually, I was thinking about another thing I really want to do. I figured it wouldn't be worth too many extra points because it's similar to something I'm already doing (and thus wouldn't be as exciting). I really want to throw in extra little things that would probably count for fractions of points, if that.  :-\

No need to feel like a slacker SciFunk, some partners decide to make it a bigger swap once they get chatting to each other. So long as your partner is on the same page as you there isn't a problem  :) I've made 2 mediums but I'm going to add a couple of small things too as I have time and supplies but one of the things that drew me to this swap was that the requirements weren't huge (as well as my love of purple!)

I did a Medium and two smalls, when I'd finished. And now I'm just adding more smalls for the fun of it. I'm going to pick out the best ones, seeing as Kookaloo was the first person to welcome me to Craftster, I'm trying extra hard to please.   ;D

either way, as long as your partner loves what they get, all is good!!

I thought I would start crafting when I got home from my mom, but as it turns out now I'm ill..
Well there's nothing like planning while you got a fever :D
don't worry, I haven't made any progress the last few days. And feverish ideas are the best.  ;)
Hope you get well soon.
thanks. I just got back from the doctors, it's a ear infection due to a virus. he just told me to take some painkillers, and "it heals when it heals". yeah..thanks doc..

I take it, that's him in the picture?
He's so sweet.

Yes, those are my boys. That pic is about a year old. He is well into the toddler age now. He's my little sidekick.

Thanks!

Well, I've decided to skip work for the university yesterday and do some crafting instead. I had this fabulous idea in mind and it turned out a total mess. I kind of like it for some reasons, but I will try a new one for my partner. The one I've tried yesterday looks like a 80's Punk thingy, but not in good way.  :D

Workin on it... started a new job and it's kicking my butt lol.  i'm home today and hope to get some good crafting time in.  This has been a wierd swap for me, most of the items I'm doing involve crafts and things I haven't done in a looong time or never have done.  What a learning curve!  A large project I wanted to do has failed miserably three times... it may not make it.  I'm gonna keep at it though, I want to see if I can do it lol.

lets say I'm not likely to get it done to mail by this Friday...

I'm torn between feeling like a terrible partner and giggling madly for finding the stuff for one more thing...

I have finally finished with yet another swap package and I've started working like mad on this swap.  I've worked on it sporadically but now it's gotten a lot more attention.  Yay for littlemisspoof!  LOL  I finished with 1 thing yesterday and am 90% finished with another.  I have a couple more things to make and then I can send.  I think I'll be done before packages are due.  I know I will.  I feel awful though because my partner sent already and she's just sitting there waiting on me.....  :(

I'm working on it, I promise!!!  :D

Ya'll are doing awesome.  I love seeing the chatter.  I apologize for being less chatty this last week.  I'm still here though!  :D

I'm getting close to being done - will hopefully send out within the week!  Extended sendouts also enabled me to do a bit of experimental crafting lol!  I hope my parter doesn't mind being a guinea pig!  :P

yeah, it just took more time than i had thought because the fuzzy fabrics i picked were really hard to work with...you can see it here, with the matching toy puppy i made, i think it came out adorable, just took A LOT of time! :)

not so much when you are cooking for 200...

paying a bill (grumbles at TexTag) then finishing out the last goodie...  This last project was one of the first planned and is being a sneaking nuisance, but it'll be good to get it done.  No Brocade shall conquerer...   ;D well today anyhow.

Aaah, the trusty seam ripper.  I keep mine close by at all times!  LOL  I usually end up breaking mine somehow so the last time I had to get one, I bought 2!  I thought having a back-up was a good idea.  How sad is it that my seam ripper has become one of my most important sewing tools?  Doesn't speak well for my sewing does it?  LOL  ;D

I have something on the order of six seam rippers laying about the house in various bags and boxes.  But I also use them to cut buttonholes and open basted seams... so having and using them is no reflection on sewing skill.  It's a sewing tool, like needles, thimbles and sheers... (shrugs)

and everyone has uppsies...

who-ho.. done to cutting a button hole, waiting for the sealer to dry.
