Details of swap:
Would you like a personalized, crafted calendar? In this swap, you will be crafting one calendar for the year 2009 for your partner based on either a bunch of separate themes or one theme to be variated for the twelve months.

I realize that with a sendout date of December 29 that the calendars may not reach your partner exactly by new years, but it gives you some time to work around any Christmas crafts you may be doing. If wanted/needed I can extend the send out date. (I personally don't care if I receive it after new year's)

Please post on this thread at least once a week with progress/hello/etc just so I know you're still with us! :)

this sounds like a ton of fun, i think i want to do this... can we make or ask for a weekly one? like a date book rather than  a wall calendar? that might be a lot of work though...
hmm.

You could ask for a weekly book if you want, but you'd have to work that out with your partner -- it could be a modified planner or made from an existing notebook...

I would like to join, 'cause I need some nice calender in my dorm, but I just don't have time  :-\ :'(
We can maybe do something in the summer, that you make a part of 2009 and 2010 :D

Oooh! I like this idea. I made a calendar last year for my mum for Christmas with pics of our cats and a mini one for a swap so this is right up my alley, I'll  just have to think about it as I appear to be swap jinxed at the moment and keep being flaked on.

has this been done before? I'm sooo tempted.... I've never made a calendar before so i'm a bit of a newb. But I think I really want to do this!!!

As far as I know, this is the first time this swap idea has been done. I've never personally made a calendar either, but I have an idea of how I want to do it.

Only two more days to sign up! If anyone has any problems about signing up, PM me and I'll see what I can do. I don't want to extend sign ups because then I'd have to extend the send out date, and the calendars would be received very late!

sign ups are almost over. I haven't heard from anyone since I posted a couple days ago. With the people who have signed up, I pretty much have partners, but I'll leave sign ups open until midnight EST.

I've posted partners on the front page. I'm sending out questionnaires right now.

I know what I'm going to do, I'm going to research some this weekend and then start crafting once finals are done. How is everyone else doing?


Title: Re: Craft a Calendar Swap! (Sign ups CLOSED, Sendouts Dec. 29)
Post by: Oyhana on December 04, 2008 08:05:32 AM
I haven't actually started putting anything together yet but the ideas are there I have rounded up a few supplies.  I think December will take me the longest so I'm going to start there.


Title: Re: Craft a Calendar Swap! (Sign ups CLOSED, Sendouts Dec. 29)
Post by: missriss on December 04, 2008 09:37:50 AM
i have a general idea of what i'm going to do, but i've got to get through these stinkin' finals first. :o  i'm really excited though...

Post by: crafty_mommy on December 04, 2008 01:33:00 PM
I started right after I found out who my partner was ^_^ I've got most of my months rough drafted I just have a few things to do and than I'll probably send early!!!

Saying hi as requested in the OP to show that I'm still on board. :) I've started my calendar for koalascout, and I'm actually pleased enough with how it's going to want to make em as Christmas presents for the family too!


Title: Re: Craft a Calendar Swap! (Sign ups CLOSED, Sendouts Dec. 29)
Post by: crafty_mommy on December 05, 2008 12:04:39 AM
I wish I had time to make some for my family :( I don't think we could afford it either (the ink and photo paper and all) I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with!


Title: Re: Craft a Calendar Swap! (Sign ups CLOSED, Sendouts Dec. 29)
Post by: koalascout on December 10, 2008 05:57:25 PM
i have a few ideas. will start on it in a few days after i do some research and finish these other couple of swaps that are due out in a couple of days.

ugg.  while i was taking a break from massive paper writing last night, i decided to print some pictures for my calendar.  and of course, right in the middle my blue ink runs out... i guess i'll have to wait a few more days...  but- the images i've found are awesome!  and i think i'm connecting some of haroldlovesmaude's themes perfectly.  i hope. :-\  i guess i also need to make a run to joann's.  oh darn. ;)

Post by: haroldlovesmaude on December 10, 2008 06:20:15 PM
I have ONE paragraph left to write on a paper, and then I'm going to do some research... I'll actually be able to get started on Friday night.

Would everyone check in please?  ;D

Post by: missriss on December 23, 2008 09:08:24 AM
argh.  i've been having printer issues.  i've gotten all the images printed, but a few of them look kind of ghetto.  i should have used photo paper; or at least something other than cheapo paper.  anyways..  it's mostly done.  just needs to get put together.  but it's not getting sent out until the 29...

Slow and steady here, but I plan to step it up in the next couple of days. I've never been more thankful of a quiet christmas.

I have updated feedback for all the partners who have both sent and received. It seems some packages are lost in transit perhaps...


Title: Re: Craft a Calendar Swap! (Sign ups CLOSED, Sendouts Dec. 29)
Post by: haroldlovesmaude on January 27, 2009 01:15:32 PM
I think we may need an angel for koalascout, as her package hasn't shown up (with plenty of time for it to have) and her partner isn't responding to me. (please pm me if you see this!) so if anyone wants to angel, please pm me. i'll post a notice in the swap angel board tomorrow if I don't hear anything from anyone.


Title: Re: Craft a Calendar Swap! (Sign ups CLOSED, Sendouts Dec. 29)
Post by: crafty_mommy on January 28, 2009 02:49:31 PM
oh that really sucks :( I really wish I could be angel but i've got so much to do already and i don't think I could have it done in time. I hope someone can be an angel for her how crappy that someone is flaking :(
