FRIENDS OF CRAFTSTER ONLY, PLEASE!

Not a Friend of Craftster? Join here! Support the website that supports your crafting needs

**This IS an international swap, so if you are unable to ship outside of your own country please wait for the US only round.

Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have 1 WEEK to send them out! So once you know you are approved, start craftin’!

If you have a ‘pre-made’ item, GREAT! This means you’re ready to go and we’ve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up ‘til signups close!

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 4/28 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.  If you do not post a picture by this date or at all, it will be noted in your feedback, as this IS a requirement for this swap to be a success.

Drawing will be done on 4/29 , PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.

This will be a 'raffle' style swap. There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn! An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door! Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (ie-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up.

When a ‘winner’ is chosen, the creator of their ‘prize’ will get their address from the organizer in a PM. PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the ‘winner’ will be surprised with their ‘prize’ when it arrives 

Please communicate in the thread ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap. If I have not seen you posting in the thread, this will be reflected in your feedback.   I will check in with you when there is about 2 weeks left to make sure you are still in on a ‘prize’ for the drawing.

Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap. For international mailings, please retain the receipt as proof of mailing.

Please PM the DC to the organizer, me TheSapphireMoon, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and maintain my records. For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed, and if it never arrives a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable ‘prize’ for the ‘winner.’

Feedback will be given when your partner has received.  Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!

I will post a gallery for ‘prizes’ so when the ‘winner’ receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great ‘prize.’

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Can you ship outside your own country, as this is an international swap?
Are at least 13 years old (yes/no)?
Have you fully read the Swap Info Guide and rules/guidelines for this swap?
Do you have any pets?
Do you or any members in your home smoke?
Do you have any allergies? If YES, please list them.
Are you vegan or vegetarian (to make sure your name is not drawn to ‘win’ something made from animal derivatives)?
Anything you ABSOLUTELY would not want to receive for any religious/lifestyle/phobia reasons (clowns, violence/nudity themes, spiders, pagan themes….you get the idea…etc.)?
Anything else you would like me to know for the raffle, or that your ‘winner’ should know?

I managed to completely miss signups for the last round, so I'm posting now so I get updates and don't forget!

I'm kind of in love with doilies at the moment.  I wonder if a set of doily-style coasters in a pretty colour might fit the theme.  Doilies look like flowers!

I am thinking about this... I have a couple of ideas, but again, time is an issue. Although, I do have a vacation coming up in a couple of weeks...

Would anyone be interested in a crocheted flower necklace? I've wanted to make one for a while, but I'm not sure if I'd wear it...

I definitely have to do this (despite trying to phase out swaps altogether to have more of a personal life :P).  The drawing is in my 41st birthday and I have wanted to do one of these, so I think this is a sign I should join.  I'm not signing up until I have a done item to offer, just to make sure I'm not sweating at the last minute.  Ideas already popping up in my head.  Yay!!! :D

Yay!  I've been waiting for you to start sign-ups since you explained the swap to me a few weeks ago at Mindy's!  But, I'm going to figure out what to make first before signing up. Off to brainstorm...

one thing I love about this swap is I can make my item before I actually sign up and I can sign up at the last minute! it is great!

I realized that when I went to look at the links I had posted in the Amazing Crochet Motif Swap. I used one of the ones in your Wist as an inspiration link (someone else came across it originally... so I may have to check out your Wists to see the other one ;) ).

I can't not do this swap!  but, I need to think on my offering.  I have a couple in mind, just not real sure.....

Post by: RondaS on March 29, 2009 02:53:04 PM
so - despite the inexpensive shipping of handing it to my kid across the dining room table - I really think that it would not be fair if I were to get something made from my own stash - so I am glad you are going to make sure chibi neko and I don't get each other, LOL!

I figured out how to make a dragon for this swap! As I am sure everyone will be happy to hear, LOL! I usually do the dragon and make a bracelet to go with it, so this time I will make a bracelet with flowers in it, and do a pastel dragon to go with it, LOL! what do you think? work for you TSM?

no idea what chibi neko has in mind...

she has been dinking a bit with poly clay but her hands are so cold they can't warm the clay up for molding!

Ronda
Blessings!

I have thought of what I'm going to do.  It can even go to RondaS with her gazillian allergies.  ;)  I have to first work on the Crochet Motif swap, then I can start on this. :D

I already have my idea planned too! It shouldn't bother any allergies either!

Wahoo!  Your dragons ROCK, Ronda :)  I'm gonna have to percolate on what I wanna make myself...I am thinking I will actually make a tote bag this time, as my bags have been VERY well received by everyone that has gotten one in a swap lately.  I have a couple new patterns...hmmm....

Who needs to cook?  Just look good in the kitchen!

I'm stalking this swap.  I always have good intentions but the deadline gets by me before I make my item.  I don't know if I'll make it in this time but I'll be watching what goodies you all make.

I think I may be in.  I have a swap lull while waiting for a gnome to arrive at my house, and I have an idea for what to make.  But I'll make it and post a pic to guage interest before actually joining, if that's okay with you, TSM.

I had so much fun in the round of this I participated in (I received the most BEAUTIFUL poppet!) it's been tough for me to pass it up since!   :D

What color combos do you all of you think work best (I am thinking about two or three stranding it). Colors I am considering

blue
yellow
green
red
orange

Let me know what you think would be really awesome.

I like combos of colors, red orange yellow together would be a hit for me.  If you had pink, then pink yellow green together.

I spent a little time working on my item last night.  I think I'm going to go work on it some more today, maybe even finish it since I don't have a lot on my 'to do' list.  :)

I do have pink and I HATE the color pink, so um, not a bad idea to get rid of some of it.  Hopefully others don't hate the color pink.  I love the red, orange, yellow idea, I hadn't even considered it.  Since I won't be able to start for a day or two, I am open to other opinions.

LOL!  I remember you saying you hate pink, so feel free to liquidate here, as I find pink to be a quintessential spring color :) and I like it!

Ooh Ooh Ooh!!  I have a fab idea.  I may make serveral (even though scarves normally take eons, this lace pattern knits up pretty quick).  I am surely going to want some for myself.  Then I can post the pics.  Everyone just needs to make sure you put in your fave colors in the questionnaire, otherwise you'll probably end up with the one with pink in it. ;)

Ok, starting to make progress on the motifs (still a little ways to go I think). Knitting these scarves will be my reward for finishing the motifs.

Ok, I finally finished my item!  :D  It is an embroidered pincushion with a flower theme.  Embroidered flowers on the top, flower button and then button 'flowers' with embroidered greenery on the sides.  I will send it with the flower pins that you see in the photo too.  :)  It has a little packet of plastic weights in it to give it just enough weight so that it should stay in place when picking out pins as you are sewing.  :)

D'oh! I was just at 2 craft stores and I completely forgot to get some yarn for my planned necklace... I want to make it in cotton, but only have a huge supply of acrylic and dishcloth-making cotton... grrr...  But, I do have a coupon for 25% off my entire purchase (regular & sale price) that starts next Monday, so maybe it's a good thing I forgot ;D

My offering is done!  ;D When I think of spring I think of gnomes! Yes, garden gnomes. Each spring I get such a happy feeling taking my little friends out of storage and placing them back in the yard for the year. So what better than a gnome trio!  ;) A set of 3 2x2 inch canvases painted with different gnomes! I also used a bit of paper collage to add to it.

Gnome 1 with the little birdie on his hat. Mushrooms and grass are paper collage.

Gnome 2 holding flower, Flower and grass are paper collage.

Gnome 3 with plastic lawn flamingo! Grass is paper collage.


I hope everyone loves it and I can't wait for the draw!

When I first joined Craftster, I was indifferent on gnomes.  Now they are growing on me and at some point I think I want to knit myself one.  Such a cute trio.  Any number of places I could hang that.

I am finally done with my crochet motifs, so now I can start on my item.  Wooooo. :D

They remind me of David the Gnome cartoons that I watched as a kid....and as a babysitter.  Too cute!

I have all the supplies together, now to craft.  Hopefully I can squeeze all the details in. :-\  My grandmother just got diagnosed with breast cancer and had a breast completely  removed, so I'm rushing through a quilt for her since I can't be there. :(  But she is doing wonderfully so far.

Wow alwaysinspired, I love those gnomes!! (Two items posted, two items I would love receiving. . . I think I may need to make an item for this swap!)

I had a bunch of windows open and I thought I was looking at the pendant swap, and was delighted by the gnomes! . . . if I got them I may separate them and use them as pendants! (Hopefully that doesn't make you cringe)

I wouldn't mind if they were seperated! It is up to you. I just love the look of them hanging together and think they'd be a great little eye catcher hung on a small space of wall.

I just thought of a potential offering! I may do a painting similar to the one I sent to karin_ in the Buy Nothing/Green swap,(https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291942.msg3414122;topicseen#msg3414122 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291942.msg3414122;topicseen#msg3414122)) since it seemed to be popular!

That is a really lovely painting, psyche :)  Would love to see some great spring-inspired art this round.

ehinders, will keep an eye out for your questionnaire soon!

I am going to serge up some fabric before it goes in the wash, then I will look through my stash for what I want to use to make my offering.

Ok, I finished my items for this swap.  A pair of complementary headbands.  First comes the rain and rainbow - , the gray and rainbow one is made from super-soft acrylic (this isn't your Mom's Red Heart!   :D  In fact, it isn't Red Heart at all.)  Next the rain brings green grass and a yellow flower -  this one is made from Lion Brand's new recycled cotton yarn.



The rainbow and the flower are attached so that they will slide up and down the headbands, so you can position them wherever you want.

I went to get some fabric for my project. I gathered the floss together & have it all ready to go. As soon as I can get to it, I will get started.  ;D I have 2 projects I'm working on for another swap that I should be done with by the end of the week.

First off, I have a couple of ideas....  One of them is either going to be a recycled jean tote OR yoga bag... but I want to poll opinions on which you all would like best?  The yoga bag would be functional for more than just that, possibly..  There are just SOO many purses and purse swaps, that I thought it might be fuin to offer something different :)  What do you think?

Also, I was thinking of some bubble magnets, maybe to go with whichever type of bag I end up with.  I'll have it done and pics posted by Saturday evening (Easter is just my kids and I, my family is very spread out and don't do much together).

So... feedback?

Fringe the scarf, it gives you something more to fidgit with  ;)

I'm totally for fringe!

Incidentally, I worked at a sewing shop when I lived in Florida, and have quite an abundance of vintage patches, and some vintage embroidered ribbon embellishment that I plan to use. 

The Green Fairy is about 6 1/5 inches long, so there's a size comparison for you on the others.  The ribbon is the one I'd use, so which patch do you like best?



Title: Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5 SIGNUPS CLOSED SENDOUTS 5/6
Post by: myklia on April 07, 2009 04:36:14 PM
Fringe it is (I'm not a fringe person, that is why I ask, after all, I'm not keeping these).

I almost forgot about the headband.  I really love the yellow one.

I vote for the green fairy.

The Green Fairy is gorgeous! She gets my vote.

The headbands look fun. ;)

Alright, kids.  I've officially started the item I think I'll be making.  It'll be a wreath made with a bunch of these flowers:


(The colors are a little brighter IRL, sorry!)

So if I did this, would y'all be interested in the wreath?  I'd like to know before I get too far into the project.  LOL

As far as wreaths - I like the flowers you are making, but I am not much into wreaths.  I have a couple my stepmother made and they are sitting in a box in my back shed.  Still, I bet I am in the minority here.   ;D

I guess we're going with the fairy!  I've been saving her for something special, so this seems like a fun way to give her a new home :)  I'm going to try to find some more cool coordinating embellishments, if I can.  But I think the fairy and the ribbon will be cute together.

My offering is 99.5% finished, so I will go ahead and post pics.




An umbrella needlebook for those "April Showers" and one May flower measuring tape.
If I can, I will add a scissors fob and post a pic when I finish that, but I was too excited to wait.  The needle book has a pocket for buttons/thread/thimble/whatnot behind the umbrella handle and a nice scissors pocket on the back (scissors included)



And a close up of the rose tape measure!

Oooh, I love.  If I end up with that, I'll be happy and I don't sew.  On the other hand, I really want to do more playing with embroidery.

Thanks ya'll!  I modified the pattern from one in Quilts & More.  My blanket-stitch is a tad wonky, but okay I think. :-\  The rose pattern was in a craft book I have from the 70's that I was flipping through on April 1st because of all the shag & macrame! Although theirs was a pillow. Super simple :D

Wow! I really would love to get that! It's beautiful. Love the tape measure cover. I haven't thought of that before...and I've always thought my tape measure was ugly. hmmm...maybe I'll have to make a cover like that if I don't get this in the raffle.  :D

So I am not too sure what to do.  This is the progress on my first scarf so far:

*Deleted pics as they no longer apply*

The pink is Wintuk yarn, which I now realize could almost give Red Heart a run for their money on icky texture.  Now I have already experienced with Red Heart, that it will soften up nicely in the wash.  Does anyone know if the same is true with Wintuk (I realize this yarn is no longer available, I don't think). 

I hesitate to frog it, but as it is right now, I wouldn't wear it, let alone give it to someone.  My thoughts are to either frog it or put it on a stitch holder to finish later and start a new scarf, with known soft texture yarns, for this swap.  On the other hand, I don't know why I would want to finish it, what would I do with it?

Anyways, opinions welcome.  Thank you.

I've never heard of Wintuk yarn, so I cannot advise as to whether it will soften up.  But I have to say I really like the stitch you are using - very pretty!

If you are going to start a new scarf you could finish it off where it is for a dolly blanket to give to a little girl.  Little girls always love dolly blankets no matter what shape or size they are. They make them work.  ;)

Edit to add, I'm not sure if it would soften up either.

The thing is I didn't want to finish up the scarf to find out the yarn won't soften up and then I wasted all that time and it would be just that much tougher for me to get two summer scarves done in time.

Lion Brand Microspun and Caron Simply Soft to the rescue.  Yay!!! About ready to cast on...again. :D

Here's my offering.

One of my favorite things about Spring is open windows and hearing the birds sing or watching the birds teach babies to fly.

I made a wall hanging with a momma bird and her baby in bright Spring colors. The house is done in metallic floss. Does not show very well here.
My pictures seem to dull out when I uploaded it.  I'll try to take a few more later, if they are better I will replace these with a new pic.  ;)

Edit to add new pics. ;)It seems someone was playing with the camera settings.



On a mat for size.

myklia - Wintuk does soften up considerably if you dry it in the dryer with fabric softener sheets - for future reference it is very similar to Red Heart that way

tht bird pic is nicely done!

I looked through my fabric stash the other night for spring-ish styles and I had this.  The colors are more vibrant in person and I promise I'll iron it before sewing!  ;)



I thought it'd make a cute tote in a similar size/shape to the one I made for lafemmefatale in the tree swap seen here (the fourth photo shows it best). https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=296674.360
Would anyone be interested in this?  Or should I keep looking for different fabric or a different project all together?

Okay - that's it ;D

PS. Really - the fabric is awesome. So awesome that if I were you I would probably hide it in my closet and just bring it out every now and then to gaze at it ::) But then again - I'm just weird like that ;D

Honestly? I like it! And, I don't really need another tote bag, but I just have this thing about them... I can't resist them! Just today, I bought 3 more reusable shopping bags at the grocery store because I liked the pattern on them :P So, I love your fabric choice and I'm going to make sure to get my item finished and sign up so I have a chance at winning your bag ;)

I actually do that with a lot of fabric (this one included)!  But I figured it's about time it got a new life, plus I'm trying to work through my stash so that I can purchase more fabric to gaze lovingly at!  ;)

The "ROY" (Red Orange Yellow) scarf is mostly done, just have to weave in ends and add fringe.  I have alreayd started on the second one.  Yes, one scarf could be a medium alone, but it seems that what other people are doing are a little more than medium as well.  Anyways...The second scarf is a green/blue and silver color combination.  So the recipient will have a choice if they feel like being bright or cool.  Or they they could give one away if they so choose.  Hey, as long as it ends up in a home where its loved.  ;)

So hopefully in the next couple of days or so I'll be posting my pics.  Depends on how far I get today on the second one and how crazy work is.

I'll have to think of other ways to get rid of (*cough* use) the pink yarn. :)

Whoa, you posted while I was writing.  Oooohhh, another bag for bag addiction.  I LOVE it.

TheSapphireMoon, I love that fabric, too! And, I'm not sure I'll have time to make a crocheted necklace (I crochet very slowly)... and it would require a yarn purchase. But, whilst cleaning the house for Easter, I realized I have a prodigious amount of fabric and quite a bit with flowers. And, with Earth Day right around the corner, I'm thinking of a set of reusable lunch bags. I sew much faster than I crochet ;) And I have all of the supplies I need...

Oooooh!!  I am loving my second scarf.  The first on is all acrylic yarn (soft acrylic mind you, not the icky stuff), but the second is mostly cotton.  And the colors are my version of summery.  Fortunately I have more of that yarn and will be making one for myself now.  Yay!!!  Note to self: Buy a ton more cotton yarn (not the dishcloth stuff, but the good stuff). :D

Aww I'm glad y'all like it! I was talking with hollistercobabe before I decided and I almost took a real umbrella and sewed floral fabric in the insides so when it was raining you'd see flowers! LOL I wasnt sure how well it would work though so I decided to stick the flowers in an umbrella instead! lol

Ummm ... yea 3.5-4" its not big by any means! lol The more i look at it the more I want to add to it ... it may end up being more than that LOL but we'll see, I cant decide if i want to just put some fabric or yarn with it or if I want to add on to the poly clay decor lol

Okay, I finally got my experiments all finished.



These are a take on scrabble tile and glass tile pendants. I used glass square marbles. (like the round ones used to make magnets). The pendants are about 1/4 inch or more thick. I put them on a muted 18 inch silvertone chain. Images are sealed on the back. The pendants are made to be interchangeable, one for rainy days (black umbrella) and one for sunny days (hydrangea flower).  :) I will also be throwing in some extras including stash busting stuff.

I really like those tiles.  Especially the umbrella one - but that  may be due to living in the lovely rainy northwest.   :D

There are so many fantastic things in this round! I picked up some iron on vinyl last night, so I can use it on my lunch bags. I had some cool oil cloth, but I can't seem to find it, so iron on vinyl it will be ;) I'll be able to work on them this weekend- I'm setting up my sewing machine for another project tonight, so I'll be one step closer ;)

I'm sorry I didn't get my project done and posted on the weekend like I said I would.  My daughter has bronchitis (as do two of the sitter's four kids) and with Easter goings on and a girl from our department being on vacation at work, it's been nuts here trying to keep up.  I am about half done, so I'll get it done and posted on the weekend, I promise!

Hmmm...Dollar Tree...I will have to check the one up the road from me for those.

I checked the IKEA site today, just to see if any new locations were opened...and guess what??  There is a new IKEA opening in Tampa in a couple weeks!!!  YAY!  That's way closer than Orlando or Ft. Lauderdale for me, so my BFF and I are gonna be all over it :)  She has to have 30 days notice to take time off, so we won't get there on opening day.  I would rather wait and go with someone than go by myself on grand opening...what fun is it to shop at a new store by yourself?  LOL!

When is it ever fun to shop at Ikea by yourself period.  I concede, there are some advantages to it though (once I went with someone with light sensitivity, so we had to avoid the lamp section and occasionally others are picky about where to go in the store  :P).  Get the right person though, it is a total blast!!!!

Yay!!!  I'll take the bird on a branch.

I realized I haven't commented on the pendants, they are incredibly beautiful.  Now I'll be keeping my eyes open for square tiles (but there really aren't many dollar type stores in my area).

A Summer Blue eyeglass chain or badge holder!  It has the eyeglass loops on the end and I will send the badge loop as well. All beads are glass and the two large one have black dots on them. It hangs really well and great for keeping your glasses from falling in the mud when you garden :)

I'm sorry I'm joining to late in the game, but this swap looked like too much fun to resist.  I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make something with classes and all, but after a busy week, I decided to relax this weekend and craft, so here is my offering:







It is a set of three asymmetric flowery necklaces, two crocheted, one made of recycled magazine pages.  Sorry the pictures are so terrible; it has been dark and rainy here for the last couple of days and my lamps and wall aren't terrible good models.  :)

I've loved everything that everyone else has posted!

I picked out my fabrics for the lunch bags, but realized that I don't have a suitable fabric for the lining, so I'll be hitting the fabric store early tomorrow, and hopefully I'll have them finished before the day is out... except for one, which I'm stenciling on first, so I have to wait for the paint to dry. So that will be finished on Wednesday!

Post by: bsonlytoots on April 22, 2009 01:41:20 PM
yes .. just a name and address ... so you dont know who your are sending to or rec'ing from


Title: Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5 SIGNUPS CLOSED SENDOUTS 5/6
Post by: TheSapphireMoon on April 22, 2009 03:22:43 PM
Yup, that's why it's a raffle...as it is much like a REAL raffle with tickets n stuff, so when your name is drawn you don't know what prize you get until that very second :)  So...yes, only the name and address are sent to you, and you can TRY to find out who your partner is....and if you DO figure it out, PLEASE do NOT PM them and say that you are sending to them, it ruins the surprise....kinda like someone else blowing out the candles on your birthday cake, it's just not cricket  :P

Hey everyone, sorry this is so last minute.  We've had a bit of household drama around here and everything has gotten shoved off for far longer than I'd hoped.

Anyway, here's my offering:

The Green Fairy Yoga Mat Bag:



The other side:



Detail of the pocket:



Thanks for being so patient with me, and I hope you like it!

Edit:  Sorry for the horrid pictures, my camera broke so I'm using my cellphone to take rather crappy ones :P

I had wanted to participate this round since I haven't in the past, but it's just not going to happen.  I've been too busy with work and I don't have the money right now for the rest of the supplies I need or shipping.  So ladies, enjoy your raffle and hopefully I'll be able to join in on the next round.

Whew, thanks in part to a super quiet internet tonight (maybe everyone got sucked away in some vacuum, I think I saw an outer limits or twilight zone episode like that ;)), I got my scarves done.  Ends woven in and fringe and everything.  I will take pictures tomorrow or Saturday.  Too late tonight.  I want to take them outside on the dead tree, one of my fave spots to take pictures and it is supposed to be really nice tomorrow.

Well, I'm tired now and off to bed, can't wait to show the scarves.  I hope everyone enjoys them.

I know in Wisconsin it has snowed as late as May 10th. bleh  Those scarves won't really keep you warm though.  The red/orange/yellow may have half a chance, but the blue/gray one, definitely not.  They really are intended for spring/summer weather.

I'm really glad everyone likes the scarves, so now I have to join the chorus, I can't wait to send outs.  Yay!!!

Hi everyone!  I have 1 swap spot open and I was thinking of sneaking in on this swap at the last minute.  I saw earlier that someone was planning an apron, but I haven't seen it post yet.  Is someone still planning on doing an apron?  If not, I have some jewelry I could offer up.
Thanks!

I'm totally jumping on the "I would love an apron" bandwagon!  I need one.  I'm always in the kitchen getting flour, spaghetti sauce, etc. all over me!  Even if there were two aprons in this swap, I'm sure each would be unique!  Anyway, there seems to be quite a desire for aprons.  :)

I, too, would love an apron. I have a boring grey one that I made ages ago, and a half apron somewhere, but another apron would be most welcome!

My item is just about finished. If I could find my hand sewing needles, it would be done. I have to sew on 3 buttons... I do have one of those old Buttoneer things if I can't find the needles, so all is not lost. I won't be home tomorrow, so I'll have the pics posted on Sunday, most definitely!

The drawing for prizes is not actually until 4/29, after signups end everyone has a few days to make sure their item is photographed and listed...I believe everyone except just 4 people have pics of their items up already.  If all photos are up before 4/28 (which is when all of them are actually due by) I will do the drawing earlier than 4/29 :)

How'd I miss the towel? It's so cute! The colors would match my bathroom, but it seems a bit too nice for drying hands on...

I have friends with 'do not touch' towels at their homes...the kind that are just there to look at and not actually use...that towel would be one of those things for me.  I would finally understand the concept of not using something as it looks too good for that  ;D

Breakfast is done, and buttons are sewn, so here's my offering!

Three re-usable lunch bags. The inside is lined with an orange swirly cotton fabric, covered with iron-on vinyl (they are not insulated, however). They close with fabric covered buttons. The 2 floral print ones are made with duck cloth, I think (might be lighter weight than that, though... I bought the fabric from JoAnns a while ago and they were in the clearance section), and the third one is canvas that I stenciled on.

Thanks! They came out a bit smaller than I would have liked, but they are big enough to hold a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a juice box or a can of soda. I used the pattern from here: http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projects-ideas/bags-pillows/lunch-sack-gift-bags_1.html

So, in an effort to delay the reality of getting ready to go back to school tomorrow (and do a new job for the next 3 weeks while someone is out), I decided to go through the thread (show images only wasn't cooperating) and remind myself of what was up for grabs.

I'd forgotten so many of the items! I made a list and marked each item as a keeper or a gift (myklia, your summer scarves will be perfect for the gal I'm filling in for and her teammate who will be helping me out- I even know which one will get each color!; Avesthel, your pincushion will be a perfect gift for my mom for Mother's Day; haroldlovesmaude, my sister loves journals and her birthday is coming up; and a few others that could be gifts or could be keepers ;) ).

Most of the list is marked with "Me!" And, the items I listed above could be marked that way as well, except they are perfect for my intended recipients (although I could change my mind ;D ).

So, as soon as I dig out the necessary packing materials, I'll be packing up my lunchbags so I'll just need to address the package and get it in the mail! Yay!

My offering is a piece of wallart. The photo could be a bit better, but you can most see what you're getting! (Mauve background & painted branches with multi-coloured paper birds!)


And. . . I'll be adding a small extra (hopefully tailored to my send-ee!)

extra pics -    (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=243651)    profile

and belly - to prove she has legs  (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=243652)

hope she looks floral enough for the theme - and the bling will have flowers in it somewhere so that should work out!

now to hope my internet is working tomorrow so I can send quick too, I think they must have had it off all day today working on it or something because I couldn't get on at all! grumble, grumble

and thanks for the compliments on my dragons everyone!

I think the perfect recipient for that pink dragon would be my sister's boyfriend's daughter.  I think she is about 7 or 8 yrs old and she is very girly girl.  I bet she would love it.

I have a really good idea of what I am doing too, but the result may be a Saturday send out, but if I can get it out tomorrow, I totally will.  I just hope she really likes it.  If all turns out, should be cool (cool enough for me to not want to give away, but I will and make sure I have the supplies to do something similar for myself).

I am going to send out tonight...otherwise, I will have NO money to mail it and will end up sending late for my own swap, how retarded would I feel then?  LOL!  Stupid bills...rather have it overdraft me than take my last $7 that I need to mail this package with...

I figured it out! Not too hard, but still a fun search :D Learned a bit more about each of you, lol

Now I've just got to search through my winner's wists!

I'm back and I'm pretty sure who I'm sending to also.

So I'll check a few things out (stalk a bit) and get the package ready to go.


Edit to add...
I know what the extra will be  ;)

I just figured out who I am sending too and made an extra to include! When the extra is dry (which will be in the morning) I'll take a pic and get the package ready, but it is early to work tomorrow so I won't get to send until Friday!

Mine is packed, addressed, and will be in tomorrow's mail at my girl's workplace :)  My 'winner' may be the first to receive!

I am fairly certain I have figured out who I am sending too and included a few little extras that I hope she will enjoy.  :)

And if I have time, I should be sending today.  :)

I also know who I will be sending to.  I've come up with a little something to add and will be mailing tomorrow.

I just sent! (with an extra). Hopefully I stalked down the right person or the extra might not be well liked....but I'm fairly certain I got it right!  ;D

I have narrowed mine down to one of two people, both of whom like dragons enough to have one of some sort in their wist (so at least Flora will likely be welcome).

so now to come up with a blingy extra and find a box - I am not moving as fast as usual this round or it would be in the mail already, LOL!

Ronda
Blessings!

Right now I think I am looking at a Saturday send date because of the extra. (mind you I won't really be home at all tomorrow).  I will hopefully have it done by tonight (I am doing some other things in there which is why), but I just won't be able to send until Saturday.  Of course if I get it done in the next two hours, then there is still a chance I will send today.

Follow me??  ;)

I sent with two little extras! I tried a couple of other things but they were kind of flops. So I just sent what I knew would work!


Title: Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5 SIGNUPS CLOSED SENDOUTS 5/6
Post by: SugarySweet on April 30, 2009 01:12:13 PM
I will be sending on Monday. I have a few other packages I need to send too. So I figure I'll take them all at once.  ;)

I'm not sure about my extra, it's raining much heavier today than they said it would.

I need a nice to day to make my extra. grrrrrrrr....so I may rethink that and send something else.

Post by: chanemza on April 30, 2009 01:59:52 PM
Due to the um... extensiveness of one of the extras (hehehe, excited yet?)  I will be sending out on Saturday instead of today.  I know she'll like the item - hopefully the color?  I am SOOO  excited :D

Hope all of you are not going overboard with extras...this was supposed to be ONE medium item after all :)  And....there is only one week to get the package out...don't be late, else your 'prize' may turn back into a pumpkin  :D  LOL!

Since I'll be busy from 6 am straight through until 10 pm tomorrow, I won't be able to send until Tuesday (maybe Monday if I don't have to tutor), but I can try to send in the morning on Tuesday... I do know who I'm sending to, even though I didn't try to find out... hint... hint ;)

That was one reason I decided to sign up.  One item, it's all done and ready to go on the send date.

The rain kept me from making my extra, so I decided on something small. It's not something I made, but something I had to pick out and I think she will really like according to the info I read.  ;)

Yeah, mine are pretty small too. Same with the wists :D Even though it didn't turn out exactly as I'd hoped, you can still tell what it is!! And one thing is unfinished (on purpose!) so she can finish it however she pleases :)

Yeah, the extra I sent was a supply item and not a crafted one. Plus it fit in the smallest padded envelope they make (although just barely!) ;) so no worries here either!  ;D

OH, and I will probably be sending out tomorrow!

I sent today! Now for the agonizing wait! My extra is something small too. Took me about an hour to whip it up, but I'm pretty sure it will be liked!  ;)

I am not done yet, but I am totally loving my extra, almost don't want to give it away, but it is ok, because I totally plan on making a similar one for myself. :D

But, I did send today, and tucked in an edible extra and an item made by my sister that I happened to have (there was a reason I included it, otherwise it would only have been the edible bit).

To the new owner of the pincushion I made:

I just checked the tracking on it and it says:

Status: Missent

Your item was misrouted. The error has been corrected and every effort is being made to deliver it as soon as possible. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later.

I've never seen this message before and I don't know what happened.  It got accepted just fine at my PO and was on its way, but then this.  Looks like they put it on the wrong truck/plane.   :'(   I hope they fix it soon and it arrives soon. I was hoping it might arrive today but I guess that won't be happening.   :(

I have seen that missent message before, I had seen it on several items, actually....turns out it was just some kind of system error or something, as it labeled as missent when the postal carrier picked up mail and scanned the DC, it hadn't even left the post office yet!  Don't worry, it will get there just fine :)

Now that many have sent, and 'winners' are starting to receive...

PLEASE don't forget to PM me when you send and receive!  I give out feedback once your prize has been received...so if I don't know you sent, or that someone received...feedback won't get completed in a timely fashion.
