Title: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 20 (signups closed) (send by Oct 19)
Post by: GatorWrangler on September 08, 2009 08:53:12 PM
In a nut shell the sweat shoppe swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 5 or 10 like items, and in return you will receive 5 or 10 different items. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice. Here are the details;

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 20 (SSS 20)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: Sept 9 to 27
PM Organizer top picks by: Sept 28, 10pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: Oct 17
Date to send item by: Oct 19

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):NO

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?NO

All ages allowed? yes

This next part is for me and the Mods...
Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~Each participant will make 5 or 10 like items. For instance, 5 or 10 crocheted cloche hats (varied colors or the same it doesn't matter), or 5 sets of hand painted beads.
~Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe discussion thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all 5 items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 5 items) or twice (for 10 items)


...


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer (GatorWrangler):

I will be offering Felt Flower Feather Hairclips. 


The feathers can be played with so you could either go for the crazier look, or the more subtle look.  This is what the back of the clips look like:

I'll be doing some stamps again, if people are still interested?
I was thinking about an I <3 Craftster stamp, what do you think? Or perhaps some sewing/crafting theme stamps?
Also wondering whether you'd prefer "cartoony" style stamps like the ones I offered in the last round (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3651864040) or  more realistic looking ones (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2612/3903416234_fa8e7ffd9e.jpg)?

I did this swap a few round's ago, and it was such good fun that I'm going to sign up for this one :)

If people are interested I was thinking about making some beaded necklaces for one set (I have a couple of examples of ones that I've already made that I could post), and a maybe some mini coin wallet's - either crocheted and lined with fabric of just out of fabric depending on what nice supplies I can find  :D

Karin i would love a sewing stamp or any crafty stamps.

I am doing reusable snack baggies with fabric on the outside with a peva (food safe) lining and velcro closure. I will whip one up and post a picture...

I'm loving all the offerings so far!

oh my goodness - TheSapphireMoon; that mini quilted wall hanging is adorable! I would so ask to recieve one of those!

I loved the one that you did for the big swap too!

Well, looks like I may be in for 2 sets after all :)  Here's to hoping I can get 5 mini wall art pieces cranked out in time...that little tree one has no backing, I forgot in my haste to put it together for an example...and it looks much better with backing on it than not, trust me!

I'll be doing 5 pairs of two notebooks. i'll try to get pictures soon. the wall art is pretty, and the hair things are funky (it's christmas shopping time! and maybe if we all get our stuff mailed out quickly we can have one more round before christmas)

so the pictures are a bit big, but if I scale them any smaller you can't see the words. the first two show both sides, after that the back (or front, whatever you'd rather) is showing to reduce pictures, but they'll all look approximately like the first two. my newspaper mosiac notebooks:


Red Language


Hearts Gay Pride


Black and White Robots & Yellow Video Games


Striped Interior Decorating & Geometric Knitting


Polka Dots Photography & Plaid Sociology


Striped Enviromental Concern & Geometric Organic Farms.

gala_apples - those note books are so cute! the different themes are ace!!

I made all of the necklaces over the weekend, I'll be posting pics of the tomorrow evening, and I'll hopefully have the first coin wallet to post too.

I made an example bracelet at work today, and prepped the bracelet chain with clasps for the 5.  I will be using larger bumpy glass beads on them, so not small-type beads like on the one I posted earlier.  I forgot to take a pic when I got home from work tonight...I went out and cleaned up our newly emptied garage and hosed off the lawn mower.  We had our in-laws move all their stuff they were storing in our 2-car garage on Saturday, and yesterday my MIL mowed our lawn...as me and my wife and 8 other friends moved all their stuff, she felt obligated to do SOMETHING for us :)  So, I swept and re-organized our own items around so our cars can sleep soundly inside once again!  I decided to just do 1 set of the bracelets until I see if we have more people or not by the 16th...then I will possibly post a set of 5 of the applique too :) 

I'm going to try to take a pic in my office right now and see about editing the photo like I did on my mini applique picture to see if it will come out halfway decent or not.  
OK, here is an example pic of my bumpy bead cluster bracelets I will be making.  Will post pics of the 5 when I have them all complete, will be choosing fun color combos from the ones you can see in this rainbow version I made...I also have another color not shown which is a black bumpy bead like these other colors.

I love the bracelet Sapphire!  How nice that your MIL mowed your lawn.  I don't think mine would do that.  :)

Great bracelet!

I don't think I'm going to get my act together in time to think of something (and make a sample) by tomorrow's signup deadline.  So I may just have to catch up with the next round.   :P

Thanks!  I like it a lot, made 4/5 at work here before lunch, and one more to finish up when I get back to my desk, then will post them after work this evening.

Wow...what a bummer, everyone, that you won't be able to join this round :(  I sure hope we have SOME people sign up other than the like 3-4 I see that have posted example shots or the sets of their items....

If we don't get more people before signups end, I'm going to have to extend signups, and then we might not be able to get another round in before Christmas.

that'll be a shame to have to wait a bit, and this swap usually has load of people in it!

I've got picture of what I'm offering, beaded necklaces...



and small coin wallets - these are quite complete, as they need the fasteners finishing off, but I thought I would post a pic to give an idea of what they are like  :)



sorry about the photo quality they were taken on my phone rather than my real camera!

I've never participated in one of these swaps, but they have always been appealling.  I have a question though.  I do not have an Etsy shop or any shop for that matter.  Am I still allowed to participate?

I was thinking about making Calorimetries  (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html) if there would be any interest in that.  I know it's a really popular pattern so people may be burned out on it.  :-\

Post by: luckdragon on September 16, 2009 12:33:14 PM
Oh wow, this swap is getting better and better.  I would love a calorimetry!  And I love your bracelets Sapphire!  If the signups do get extended for a couple of more days, I may be able to join...I wouldn't personally need an extension for sendouts...

Imafundork, no you don't have to have an etsy or other shop to participate.  And it is a really fun swap since you get a lot of fun little packages in the mail!

Post by: TheSapphireMoon on September 16, 2009 01:09:38 PM
Yeah, imafundork, Gator just asks if you DO have an Etsy to list the link to it...in case that one of your partners may want to look there if you have more of the item you are swapping listed there in other colors/styles/etc. and just for a looky-loo around :)  You are not REQUIRED to have a shop or other online venue to sgn up.

Caliometries are ALWAYS popular in this swap, usually only one person does one set of 5 so they are in HOT demand and would be up for grabs by those that missed out on getting one in the next round, and the next, and...you get the idea :)  I finally got one of my own in the last round..or was it the one before ???  Either way, I had wanted one and it took a couple rounds for me to get it and I am happy.


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 20 (signups til Sept 16) (send by Oct 12)
Post by: imafundork on September 16, 2009 01:29:34 PM
Awesome!  I'm going to send in my questionnaire now.  Here's a photo of two Caliometries (http://www.flickr.com/photos/imafundork/3920521451/in/photostream/) that I made last week.  The green one was my first and has a few errors, so I'm going to keep that one.  I will most likely offer up the purple one and four others.  I have to go through my yarn stash and see what other colors I have.  I'll probably use wool blends and/or acrylics- some solid, some variegated.

OK, something just came to me.  Would anyone be interested in a jewelry pouch?  I haven't seen them offered in the last couple of rounds.  They could be used as a little purse as well.  If there is interest, I will try to whip up a sample this evening and get my questionnaire in just under the wire.

A jewelry pouch sounds fun.  I'm hoping to get things to use as Christmas gifts in this swap and my nieces would love jewelry and little bags to keep them in. :)

so here's my prototype.  It didn't work out exactly as I wanted, so this one's mine  :P  But, this gives you an idea of what the jewelry pouches will look like.  6 pockets inside with a drawstring.  Satiny material inside, different brocade or cotton fabric outside.  I'll post them all when I get them finished (hopefully by Sunday).

Hmm... I'm really thinking about doing this, but I'm not sure. If I do decide to join, I think I'll probably do dishcloths/face cloths or crocheted earrings if people are interested. Are people interested?

Hi folks! :)  I'm hoping to join this round, offering some Autumn pendants - similar to these I made last year, but a slightly different design


(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=180882)

They are pretty, but I can't find the lead for the camera to upload a pic at the moment - hopefully it will turn up soon!

Would anyone be interested in a pendant?

I was just thinking about that with the jewelry...I have my bracelets up, and there are necklaces, earrings (possibly) and possibly esme's pendants :)  I *HEART* jewelry!  I think I would be content with getting a pouch, and some jewelry to go in it and call it a day. 

I will be keeping an eye on the list of signer-uppers to see how many we will have close to the 20th then, and if enough fab swappers are here, I may end up still offering my mini applique wall art, I think I will start on them either way (cuz my bracelets are done) and if I don't offer them now, I will offer them next round and they will be complete already!

So... apparently I left my earring wires at home (I'm away at college), and I know I could just buy some more, but it's hard to get to the store, so I guess it's going to be dish/face cloths. Or something else I can knit or crochet from cotton yarn. **thinks**

Post by: esmecraftin on September 19, 2009 03:31:57 PM
Here are the 5 pendants I will be offering:



Let's call them - Autumn Red; Autumn Purple; Autumn Brown (copper wire)
                        Frosty Pink; Frosty Blue (silver plated wire)


If you would like a different colour scheme, just ask - I'll see what I can do  :)
Or if the same one is chosen by several people, I will make more. No problem!

Oh, yeah!  I forgot to say that about my bracelets too.  It would be pretty easy to just use the same chain and change out the beads for another color if I have more than one person asking for the same color scheme...I have lots more on all of the colors :)  I can even make more of the rainbow colored one, like my example pic.

So I should put this but I can make any scrabble pendants with any pic/theme you want (you can send me a pic) or I can make/give a random one.  I have ones ready, but I want to let people personalize them.  Also for the paper beads, I have ones like the ones in my shop, and also ones that are wooden beads covered with washi origami paper.  I don't have picks yet.  On the list on the second post my name is linked with my store.

So, I'm all finished with my mini purses (wallet!) , here are the pics of them...





So, when we have partners, my partners can then pick if they would like to have the purse plain as on the picture, or with some beaded embellishments  :)

I really think we should have more people, so I am extending one last time, but I don't know how long I am extending to yet.

To those that haven't signed up, how much longer would you want the signup period to be and how much longer would you need the craft period?

Oh man GatorWrangler, you evil torturer of an organizer... I was thinking about joining this swap, but I missed the sign-up. Some days later I saw the sign-ups have been extended - but I realized that quite late and decided against joining.
Now I see you are still there... I can't take it not to join a third time... so if anyone likes a set of crochet bracelets or some bracelets with a matching necklace I'm in.
This is a set in rainbow colors:

I have also made bracelets in Hogwarts colors, or Star Trek colors:


You could just tell me which colors you'd like, I would happily accept any excuse to buy colors I don't have yet ;D

I thought about making sets of 6-7, but one or two more shouldn't be a problem, esp as I have already premade black bracelets. Would you wear them together like the Star Trek set, or just change the middle color, or do you want the 9-piece set as described it?

thedreamer, please consider offering the tiny book that you showed with the hedgie, its just as cute!
TheSapphireMoon, yay for more bracelets, I will want one and it'd so increase my chances to actually get one (as I assume everyone will want one ;D)
badpuppy, those scarves look so good!
atsuko, map cards, what a great idea! Want!

And just in case I haven't been clear on that: I make any sizes or colors of bracelets you might want, just tell me! I am currently making some just for the fun of it, and I will post some pictures of what I have, and of course you can claim an existing set. But I will try anything else as well.

golden snitch =)


size comparison?


that's a purple mushroom next to him ;)  

and Ruby, of course I'll offer the book!  The pics are just samples of what I can make...I can probably try to make an animal/object that you'd like; the pics are past swaps and plushies I've sent out so they're not exactly available anymore (but I can recreate them for you).  And if you don't know what to do with a tiny little stuffie just sitting there, I can add a loop and a keychain to them.

Okay, just came up with an idea, can do 10 woven scarves, but then realized there are already really cool tshirt scarves up-so back to the drawing board!  :) This is fun already, and I haven't even joined yet! My camera is no good, I'll have to borrow my mom's to get some better pics of the scarves.
I can do it with crazier colors, more subtle colors, with beads, bigger beads, no beads. You guys let me know what you think.

I agree, there's always room for more scarves!  I'm a total scarf junkie.  And I could definitely use one that was some kind of purple/cream/beige combination to match my winter coat.  Just sayin'.

I love love the bracelets, TheSapphireMoon.  And loobie's wallets.  And atsuko's note cards.  And esmecraftin's pendants.  Oh man, I may need to make 10 things too!

I sewed up a few last night, but I want more colours so I think I'm going to wait to make the rest until the weekend, when I can go buy more t-shirts to transform.  So if you have any colour suggestions, I'm happy to take those into account.  :)

I'm so glad I signed up for this!

I finished my other 5 bracelets today.  I managed to make all 10 completely different...and I am hoping that those choosing will be happy with the 10 available and I won't actually have to re-do any with different colors, as I have now come down to a time crunch between a couple swaps I am in now, and will be starting a round of the FOCR and will not have much time to do custom requests  :-\  My offer of it being an option still stands...I won't go back on what I have said previously, but I REALLY am hoping all 10 of you that will eventually receive from me will be happy with the color choices available and send me your top 3 choices so I can match around :)  Pics of the additional 5 coming tomorrow!

Oh, I am in such angst over this!  :-X I really want to join this swap, but having just finished my first swap (my partner has received), I'll have to wait on positive feedback which will happen after the swap closes at the end of the month.

I know you guys have extended and extended the signup date, but I could do 5 claims of a bar of handcrafted lavender oatmeal soap and a pocket mirror, both of which are already crafted, so I would not need the send date extended. Examples of my mirrors are in my etsy shop (chartreuselily.etsy.com). I have more designs I could take pictures of, people could take their pick.

If this is too much trouble, I completely understand and will wait until the next round.

Either way, this is such a great swap idea, and I'm super excited to join in the fun whenever possible.  :)

As far as my crafting goes, I still need to make the calorimetries.  It's been a weird week.  I may end up posting pictures of the different yarn I plan on using and have people pick their favorite color.  I'll definitely have them all done before the send out date. I have loads of buttons, so I should be able to put on whatever color anyone wants.

I am going to offer 10 sets of water bottle pouches..  By a set I mean two pouches one for him and one for her.  I hope you all like them.

I have some pictures to share.

I am offering Calorimetries (knit headbands/earwarmers).

Here's a picture of two completed ones.  The purple one is up for grabs, but I am not offering the green one.  It was the first I made and has some errors. The purple one is made with Patons SWS yarn and has a vintage off white button closure.


Here are two pictures of the yarn I plan to use.

Lion Brand Homespun in Blue Sky, Edwardian and Golden.  I should have enough of the Edwardian to make two.


Caron Simply Soft Shadows in a pink varigated and a black varigated. I don't know their exact names.  I have more of the pink and can most likely make two in that colorway as well.


With the exception of the first one (purple), you may choose what color button you would like to have on it.  If these colors aren't pleasing to you, I can see if I can come up with some others.

Love the purple!  I got a caliometry from this swap already, so I think I will let you other folks grab one up this time :)

I have all my items in their envelopes waiting for labels to be sent to their new owners!!  Hope all my partners will end up being green in a quick manner so I don't have to sit on them forever.

Gotta start figuring my list out today and tomorrow to get it in for my top picks...tough choices!!  Good thing I did take the plunge and go with 10 items this round afterall.

Loving all these items! It's going to be hard to make top picks :)

Signups close tomorrow.  And top pick lists are due to me by Monday at 10pm eastern. I will not accept any later than that time because I will be matching.  You can send the lists to me at any time until Monday at 10pm eastern.

If you signed up for 10 items, you can send me a list of 13 favorite items in order or preference.  If you signed up for 5 items, you can send me a list of your 7 favorites.  I will match everyone up as fairly as possible.

Also, please pm me when you are finished crafting and I will turn you "green".  That means I make your name on the first page of this thread green and your swap partners are allowed to start shipping to you.  You can ship to any one of your partners who are green at any time, even if you are not yet finished crafting for everyone.  However, do not ship to anyone who is not green!  This helps prevent flakers.  FYI, the blue names on the first page are just links to shops, if a person is finished crafting, they will be green, not blue, even if they have a shop link.

Let me know if there are any questions :)

Here's some more info on colors and sizes:

You can have a set of 6-7 bracelets in your choice of colors, like these:


Or you can replace any two bracelets by a necklace and get for example a set like this:


The rainbow colors and black (or white) is cotton, but I also have some other colors in acrylic which is maybe not so durable but makes a nice effect:

(I think the pink one is even wool)

If you prefer natural tones, I have many cottons or blends:


I also have colors I am too embarassed to post (like pink  ;D), and these pictures are just to give you an idea anyway, so if you want something specific, just ask.
Or you could just hint a color scheme and let me surprise you.

Yay! My swap organizer Twiztidblood was super awesome and gave me feedback early per my request, just in time to signup!  :D Signups are through today, right?

I know I can commit to 5 claims, so I'll do 5 bars of lavender oatmeal soap with 5 pocket mirrors. I'll put up pictures later on today.

well, here is an example of the type of bags i plan on creating:





i made the bag that is being pictured for my halloween swap, so when i make the purses for this swap they will be entirely of a different fabric. i drafted the pattern for this bag and was happy with the result. as for the bags for this swap, they will be much funkier. i plan on making each piece of the bag into a different fabric. when i finish with them ill post pics so you guys can see what i mean.
as for the flower headbands:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26625201
i plan on making these headbands on october 9th, which is when ill be going back home from college. i make them in many different colors so when i am finished with them i will post pics with all the colors.

Okay, here are some pics of my soap and pocket mirrors.

pinkleo was my partner in the Ongoing Wish Swap, and I am shamelessly stealing her beautiful photo of my soap.  :D



The lavender oatmeal is on the bottom. I usually have plenty of about 10 varieties, but stock is really low right now, but if someone didn't like or was allergic to lavender oatmeal, I could substitute something else.



Pocket Mirrors, some paper some fabric. Covered with mylar for protection.





These mirrors are all made with vintage materials, the top three are from vintage art noveau paper, the next 4 are from a 60's magazine, and the bottom two from vintage Bingo cards.

Signups are now closed.  Be sure to send in your top picks list by 10pm tonight (Monday night)!  About 1/2 of the swappers have done this so far and I want to make sure no one misses out.

I am all "Everyone will want what I want and it won't work out". Hehe, first time sweatie, I admit it. ;D I really need to think of something I can make faster or earlier, so next time I can pick ten! I missed so many cute things (the pocket mirrors! the pouches!) So if my top pick list shouldn't work entirely, I know lots of stuff I could still nominate...

I just sent in my top picks list. That was hard to do!! I kept adding, then having to delete, and then adding, deleting, stomping my foot cause I had to delete, adding more, deleting more.
My biggest problem was I was stuck between being in love with everythng, and determining who would want what on my Christmas list!
On another note, I have 5 out of the 10 scarves done, am thinking I should be done by Sunday, then I'll post the pictures of all of them, and I'll have everybody who pulled me do their own version of the top picks list for the scarves.

There turned out to be an error.  pixieval was receiving an item twice, so I switched it with another item.  You can see the change in the list above in red.  Everything should be correct now.

So, you can pm those you are sending to and get preferences and addresses, but do not pm those you are receiving from until they contact you first.

so i finished all the headbands:








i also went home and found a small stash of fabric in my bins, and i was thinking of using the following for these people: the black bows for gatorwrangler, the grey food themed one with some really bright fabric for the top part and strap for atsuko, the plain brown and yellow polka dot fabric for disco queen highness. what do you guys think?

Here are pictures of my scarves so that those who will be receiving one can pick what colours they like!  I've posted six here.  I have more in similar colours of most of them, so I should be able to accommodate requests- even if I can't send you the exact one, I can probably send a very similar one!

I'll be replying to my PMs momentarily. :)


I had terrible lighting (it's really gloomy out this morning) but they are all fairly true to colour- EXCEPT #5.  The purple colour there is the same fabric as in #2 and #3, and not pink like it shows up.  Also, the red in #5 is a bit more muted- not quite as fire-enginey as it shows up here.

p.s. Aisy, those headbands are super cute!  I'm jealous of those who are getting one!

Aisy, I'm cool with what you picked for me.  I love seeing what everyone comes up for me from questionnaires. It's fun to see the variety. 

I'm making rag quilts for my family for Christmas and it's interesting to see just how different a vibe I get from each one.  Funny how much different fabric combos can completely change the feel of the same pattern.  Of course, that gives me just one more reason to make another.  I like to see how different I can make each of them look.  Your purses are going to be the same.  I can't wait to see how different all of them look.

This may have already been addressed and I missed it, but:
Can I ship to swappers who are "green" even though I am not green yet? 

The three Calorimetries that I have finished are for swappers who are already "green".  I am hoping to finish the other two this weekend, as I am off of work on Monday and can go to the PO then.  However, if I don't finished the other two this weekend, will I still be allowed to send the first three on Monday?  Sorry for the redundancy, I just want to make sure that I'm making sense.  :-\

Almost done crafting! Will post a pic tomorrow of the finished items!
Imafundork, I planned on sending on Monday to those partners who are green, regardless whether I am green or not, that's how I understood it, but I am new to this kind of swap, maybe a veteran swapper can clarify that.

Yes.  You can ship to anyone of your swap partners who are green at anytime.  Even if you are not green yet.  Just make sure to pm me every time you send and every time you receive.

my purses are taking a bit of time so im not sure when exactly ill be green-i just know it will be before the sendout date of course. sometime this week i will try to start sending out the headbands but some people are receiving a headband and a purse and i want to send both items out to those people at the same time. it also depends on how much $ i have in my bank account this week!

flower power pouches


jewelry pouches (they don't photograph well...much cuter in person, I think)

Anyway, late now, so I'll be packing them up and sending by Wednesday, probably.  :P

I was wondering if it would be possible to get one in before Christmas, too.  I've been working on several possibilities of things to offer. Anyone have anything in the sewing catagory they've been wanting/wisting/to do listing?  Maybe wristlets or aprons or big giant makeup bags.  Reusable grocery bags, possibly. Hmm, the possiblitlies are endless.

Gator, I also LOVE LOVE LOVE that necklace!!  Really hoping I can jon next round, between TONS of OT and ALL of that money going to bills until my wife gets a job...don't know if I can swing but one swap every other month  :-\  Unless it's like a flat rate envelope/box or the 44 cent swap...being broke n all....

I may do those mini applique pics like I was going to do this round for the next round...or possibly a similar type of dangle bracelet like I offered this round as they seemed to go over very well.

BTW guys-if you got one of my purses be very careful when cutting open the package because i didnt wrap them and they might shift around. im gonna send them when i can-i want to send them all at once though so i dont have to make multiple trips 2 the post office.

I second the decorative ID holders.  Those would be great.  I bought a couple of fat quarters for wristlets for the next round.  Then decided I needed to use some of the overwhelming stash I've got.  Can't wait to get started on those, but I've got 2 quilts to finish up this week.

ooh, what is it? and im glad people like the id holders idea. now if i could just make more time to craft!

Okay, I definitely need a wristlet, ID holder, a birdie necklace and my mom would love that birdie keychain. Hmm.

Would people be interested in smelly good stuff? I'm not sure I'll have enough soap, haven't had a soap day for a while.

What about body/room sprays, almond scented cuticle creams or bath salts? I could do the sprays or bath salts in a LOT of different scents.....

sometimes im allergic to that stuff,but that may just be the processed mass produced smelly things.  could really use some cuticle cream-i do my nails all the time!

I'm going to be cranking out a lot of cloth napkins here soon for Holiday gifts. Would anyone be interested in a set of cloth napkins in the next round?

Oh nooo, everyone comes up with cool ideas (ID holders, napkins, birdies, wow!) - and I don't have any clue yet what to make! Crochet, most probably... I'll have to try a few things.

I'm in the throws of a sinus infection, blah :'(  Monday I'll ship the remaining packages I've got packaged up and ready to go.  So to keep my spirits up I've been fondling my fabric stash.  I've got quite a few fabrics set out for wristlets for the next round.  Ahh, bright colors, florals, black/white and some new fabrics I couldn't pass up.  They do a body good.
