PM me if you wouldn't mind being a co-organizer. I won't need you to do anything, but the last couple times this swap went on, there were definately more than 25 participants!
Thank you Casey1201 for being my co-organizer!

I will be filling out my questionnaire soon.  Have to see what I have to offer first.  That will decide whether it's a one-box or two-box swap.

I am filling out the questionnaire now as well, I also just need to see what I have to decide if its going to be one or two. I am excited for this one, always nice to trade and get new-to-you things.

I hope to be starting things up for the SMALL FILL A FLAT RATE BOX swap.  I am totally in for this one as well, assuming I get feedback on a swap in time :)  I always seem to end up with extra supplies from friends and family, as well as thrifted goodie bags where I only need part of what came in them.

I want to sign up but how big is a medium flat-rate box?


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: PixieVal on October 26, 2009 06:07:27 PM
Size: 13 5/8" x 11 7/8" x 3 3/8"
And they cost 9.85 to ship anywhere in the US. And the best part is if you go to USPS.com, they will deliver 10 of the boxes to your house for free!

Post by: PixieVal on October 27, 2009 09:28:12 PM
I updated my orignal post in this thead to show some of the previous galleries that way you can see how much, and possibly what kind of "my junk, another person's treasure" stuff you can expect to get into these boxes.

Post by: Casey1201 on October 27, 2009 09:50:28 PM
Thank you for posting those links! I just looked trhough a few of them and am definitely excited! I went through my fabric stash and pulled some out that I love but still have yet to actually cut so that means they need a loving home that will do something with them. I need to work on going through my massive paper crafting stash. I dont really paper craft anymore but have so much!

I went through some yarn tonight!! I found a bunch that I can give away!  I don't have any fabric though.

Post by: TheSapphireMoon on October 28, 2009 07:19:34 AM
I have a slot free now, going to be sending in my info now.

I have a ton of fabric and misc items to send out.  Some beads and jewelry stuff, patterns, more misc items :)  Whimsies...  Lots of goodies!!  Between this and the small fill a box, I hope to destash out a lot of items in need of a new home.

There are two sizes of the medium flat rate box, the one mentioned earlier and another one that is taller but not as long. I have both sizes on order, and it takes way too long to get them, over 3 weeks so far. I will have to stop by the po and pick some up if they don't come before my swap sendouts

I am going to pick up my boxes at the end of the week, I have a post office just around the corner from me.

Post by: PixieVal on October 28, 2009 06:22:12 PM
I have a ton of yardage and yarn to get rid of. If my partners want fabric I'll probably take a pic of all that I am wanting to get rid of and let them pick out what they want. It won't be as surprising that way, but i want these things to go to use!!  :)
Look at some of the yarn I sorted through a couple weeks ago, its on the california queen bed in my basement. I'm hoping I can get rid of some of this too, and some of my novelty yarn.

OH pixievil, you are so tempting me to signup just to get you as a partner, as I'm just getting into crochet. You are evil. 8)

Post by: lindyv321 on October 29, 2009 09:55:16 AM
I had signed up for the small fill a box but after reviewing my list of all I have to offer I decided I better sign up for this one too.  Here is my list of offers and wants

Offer: Fabric scraps and such, zippers, counted cross stich cloth, random stickers, tons of scrapbook paper in different themes/colors, whimsies, plastic letter stamps for use with plaster of paris type things, acrylic yarn in white, black, and grey (not skeins just long peices), some skeins of yarn, dominoes, beads, charms, brand new match boxes,  random papers, pre printed shrinky dinks, puzzle peices, I can make inchie bases, little ceramic animals that come from a certain kind of tea (not sure what they are called but I know some people collect them) mini blue tote bags, light purple iron on butterflies, buttons, ribbon, felt, Christmas craft books, all kinds of ephemera, scrapbook stuff, and that's all I can think of right now.

So for future partners you will have to let me know what things you are interested in from the list above.  as for fabric and ribbon I would be more than happy to tell my partners what colors/types I have so they can choose what they like.

Want: fabric, beads, charms, novelty yarn and fiber for rapunzel scarves, embroidery floss cards (to wrap floss around), embroidery patterns, embroidery floss, stencils, a rotary cutter!, paper for inchie and inchie house making, sheets of music, vintage ladies pics, whimsies, watercolors, bookmarks, inchies made by you for my collection, christmas themed items glitter, things to put in resin for jewelry

I've been thinking the same thing.  I looked at that $4.95 box and decided that there's no way I can get all of this in that little box.

I've still got a couple of days to think about this, but I'll hurry through my supplies and make a decision.

And I would love to have those little ceramic critters for my collection.

Add me to the this of people wanting to join both this swap and the $4.95 box swap.  Right now, I only have one slot open.  I am waiting a little bit to see if I get feedback for a swap I've completed-that way I can join both.  :)

LOL!  SOOOO many of us in here that either HAVE signed up for both the medium AND small.....or....are HIGHLY interested in joining both and probably will end up doing so :)  Looks like we all wanna pay it forward with excess supplies.  I NEVER give crafty stuff away to the thrifts, yet I always find some of my BEST stuff in them!  LOL!

Here is my list so far...

HAVE: fabric yardage and FQ's, patterns (women's only), beads, charms, notions, ribbon and trims, misc, whimsies, stamps, TONS of fabric scraps of various sizes and shapes, LPs and 45's (that's vinyl records for you young 'un people out there!  LOL!)possibly some cross stich stuff

WANT: FABRIC!!  looking for canvas, corduroy, IKEA fabrics, quilter's cottons in any yardage from FQ on up, beads, charms, jewelry findings (mostly looking for head and eye pins, toggle clasps and lobster clasps, silvertone chain), Singer sewing machine needles, ribbons, trims, notions, rick rack, zippers, thread

NO yarn or knitting/crochet goods as I don't do that craft...nor do I have children, so no kid's craft stuff either.

Post by: PixieVal on October 29, 2009 06:41:35 PM
I love that both of these swaps are going on right now. For 1 I am hoping to get some last minute holiday supplies. Plus, having two swaps of different sizes to choose from lets those who have mostly bulky items(yarn, fabric) or smaller items(beads, sewing notions) choose what size they can feasibly do. And those who have whored themselves(like me!) to the craft supplies trade lots and lots of stuff!

I cannot wait for partners.  There are so many people that I would love to receive from and so many that I would be able to give to.  I have branched out into doing so many new crafts that I have tons of different supplies.

Like thesapphiremoon, I have tons of lp's too, but they don't fit well into the medium box. Evan angleing the lp you run a great risk of it cracking. I ordered some of the large boxes, and the taller medium boxes, but they still aren't here.

Post by: pinokeeo on October 30, 2009 01:52:46 PM
And I so love to make things with records and the covers.  I get them from all over though, so I seem to have a steady supply.

I'm still sorting through my mess to see if I want to do this swap.  I may have to cave in and do this one, because I have lots of leather and it won't fit in the small flat rate box.

On a side note, I underestimated just how massive my paper supplies mess was and can fill up 2 boxes just in paper. Sad I know. But I completely reorganized all my craft stuff this morning and I feel so free of clutter!

I am going to be going through things tomorrow and getting a box ready of things that are ready to be shared!  After partners I will go through and personalize.  I was thinking how nice it will be to get some stuff cleared out.

At this point, we only have 11 people signed up, which we will make rock anyways. But if you know others out there in craftster land that would benefit from this swap, please let them know about it! The small box swap is totally kicking our ass. Almost makes me wonder if we shouldn't have tried to combined the swap in some way, and then let people pick 2 mediums, 2 smalls, or one of each.


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: guacaMolly on November 01, 2009 08:18:34 PM
Both of the flat rate swaps look so tempting!

I have some good sized (1-2 yds) cuts of heavy duty (canvas-ish) fabric, for upholstery, pillows, etc. Some palm trees, and then a patterned pale silky cream or pink, and one piece with bright animals and designs. Also rubber stamps, tons of paper ephemera, really neat old costume jewelry, cotton doll making bodies, paper, bath goodies containers (plastic jars, lip balm tubes, spray bottles, frosted glass bottles with corks, lotion bar tubes), and a lot of what I like to call watch soup. Odds and ends from pocket and wrist watches, like cases, little vintage boxes, and random parts big and small. Would people be interested in these kinds of things??


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: PixieVal on November 01, 2009 08:28:38 PM
I can't think of who offhand, but I know someone who sent me their questionaire said they'd like steampunk items, and I definately believe watch soup would fall into the category to make steampunk jewelry from. And some of those fabrics sound awesome to me.

That was me Pixieval! I am just starting to try it out. I picked that up as well as soap making and am loving both but just dont have much in regards to supplies yet. I am going to try to recruit some more people for us!


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: pinokeeo on November 01, 2009 08:46:55 PM
Well, I just sent in my questionnaire.  Now I need to round up everything that I would like to find a new home for, so that when it's time for partners, I can just sort and stuff and mail.


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: PixieVal on November 01, 2009 09:24:59 PM
Actually, I was thinking of sending a PM to everyone who participated in the last FAB to let them know this one is open. Is that a little too much?


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: TheSapphireMoon on November 02, 2009 08:46:39 AM
I don't think so at all, pixieval.  Many people may not check the swaps list too often, maybe only getting involved in a few a year...or some may just not have time for craft swaps, but could get into a supply swap, and just don't know it's going on.  Or, people are full on swaps and have to wait for feedback...or or or....there could be a million reasons!  LOL!  Hit 'em up! 

Yeah, well, I think my small flat rate box swap is kicking butt because it is cheaper to mail the envelope or the small box...and it's CRUNCH time with the holidays coming, and so many people having lay-offs and income reductions, that the 9.85 to mail the medium flat rate is just too expensive for them right now.  Also, many people had replied or talked about not possibly having enough stuff to fill a larger box, but enough to do 1 or 2 small boxes...which even 2 small boxes are less than HALF the filling area of ONE medium box...so that could be another reason.


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: Casey1201 on November 02, 2009 08:54:05 AM
Has everyone who expressed interest on the swap idea board already signed up? Maybe hit up the people that were in the swap a yeard of fabric swap as well, I know we didnt get to destash in that one like we would have wanted to.

BTW The SapphireMoon- I have one pattern sz 20-24 that I have absolutely no use for. Its Simplicity 3778. I bought it to make my mom a summer dress awhile back and then we found one she liked better. Let me know if you want it, I remember you saying you were wanting that size patterns. Just PM me if you do :)


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: pinokeeo on November 02, 2009 09:22:28 AM
Does it matter if the swap is a small one?  Supplies are an ongoing thing and destashing after the holidays will be a big deal.  We can do this again in January or February.


Title: Re: Fall 2009 Fill a Medium Flat Rate Box with Supplies Signups until Nov 6
Post by: lindyv321 on November 02, 2009 11:06:07 AM
I started going through my stash yesterday and have already found a ton of stuff!  I haven't started going through my craft room yet so I know there will be a ton more! 

Another idea is to post in the previous FAB thread with the link to this one.  That way you can reach everyone who was in it before without having to do the PM.

I would be happy to get stuff from everyone here so even if no one else signs up it's A-Ok with me!

I'm not looking at this as a de-stashing so much as I am a re-stashing.

I'm looking forward to getting things I may not think to buy or collect for myself and new opportunities for ideas.

Dh got his hopes up that I was actually going to get rid of things then they were dashed when I told him I was getting a box of the same size in return lol

I don't mind a small swap at all, but I was just hoping we would have enough vaierity so everyone could get a box crammed with stuff they want. I of course, want absolutely everything  ;)

I just realized that I will be out of town when partners are assigned.  So whoever I get partnered with, don't panic if you don't hear from me before Sunday night. 

I'm excited to start on this.  I have so many things and I think I can actually tailor my package to my partner's needs.

hmmm... reading all these posts is making me nervous.  I feel like I have a bunch of stuff... but I don't think I have a bunch all in one kind of craft.  I have a lot of stamp pads I'd like to destash, but I know that won't be enough to fill a whole box.  (Does anyone even want stamp pads?) (I also don't have a box yet, I've read the dimensions, but I'm scared it'll be bigger than I anticipated).  This would be my first swap so I'm still a little nervous.

Imafundork have I mentioned that I WANT your yarn?!?!?!?

stevensnevets the boxes fill up fast, trust me!  Personally I like to recieve a variety of things cause I like to do lots of different crafts.  I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Casey1201 I have books too, I found two Christmas craft themed books and one general crafty book.

I am so excited!  I just signed up last night after finally deciding to just do it!  I was scarred money would be to tight but alas here I am!   I have a ton of stuff and its all different types of crafty stuff.  I am running low on a lot of supplies of random things but somehow have accumulated so much stuff over the past few months I dont even know why I have half of it.  I had lost a lot of things in the move last year and somehow ended up now with a lot of unneeded things.   I hope who ever I get partnered with likes a few different type things. 

Oh and I was so tired last night I dont even remember what I put on my quesionairre but I have other things I am sure of than what I put on my list.  Oh and something I didnt put on there is that I love victorian and steampunk type stuff!    I also probably have a bizzillion wants :P. Well just wanted say hey and glad to be in this swap everyone!

I am most excited about getting rid of some of this stash! My birthday is in December and I will be getting a sewing machine.  I didn't ask for any sewing stuff though because I have no idea what I'm doing with a sewing machine! :)  But when I get it, I will be moving everything from one side of the room to the other and organizing it hardcore.  So I might have to do another one of these swaps next year! :)

So this might be a stupid question... as a first time swapper I've seen a lot of swap posts where things you're sending are secret.  Does this mean I can't message my partner and ask if they would like a specific supply not listed as a want, but something I have a bunch of?  I just don't want to send a significant amount of something my partner actually doesn't want.

With a swap like this, I'd say definitely message your partner and see what he/she wants.  I sent a message to my partner this afternoon telling her all that I had to offer and asked her if there was anything I had that she wanted that she didn't list in her questionnaire. (Sorry for the run on sentence!)   ;)

I cant remember what I even put on my questionnaire so my partners are more than welcome to message me if they have questions.

My son is 4, I am sure they would have stolen my daughters piggy bank if there had been any money in it.  She's not so good at saving her money! 
Even the cops said how low it was for them to still from a child.  Nobody saw anything since it seems they came in through my back door somehow.

Oh no Lindy! I am so sorry! And I agree that was pretty low to steal your son's piggy bank. I would be devastated if someone broke into my home. Especially if they took my laptop as it has many photos throughout the years on it (this motivates me to back them up actually...). Oddly enough I would be the most upset if they took my stuffed lion, Roary. Yeah, I know, I'm 21 and that is what I'm worried about...but I am. It's weird when something like this happens and you realize what really matters to you. Glad no one got hurt. Don't feel you have to get the package out tomorrow. Especially given all the chaos between the burglary and your son's medical stresses.

I have my 2 boxes packed up for this swap, and for my 4.95 swap.  I have no money to send, even if today wasn't Veteran's Day, so these will likely go out by the end of the week when eBay auctions end for me and I hopefully get some immediate payers.

My box is packed and ready to go.  I just have to write a card and put an address on the box.

The mailman was supposed to pick up the box yesterday but they didn't show up  :-[ I am not sure if I selected yesterday or today for pick up though.  If it isn't picked up today I will drop it off at the post office tomorrow

I've gone through my crafty supplies and have been picking things out. Part of the difficulty is deciding which box to put them in for the things both of my partners would like. ;D

Sounds like a crappy day! Sorry you were yelled at.

I got my box out today. I very nearly had to have a child sit on it before it closed but close it did with only a tiny, smidgen of a bulge. My post man said someone was getting every ounce of use out of that flat rate...it's heavy! lol

Hi there Fill-A-Box Swappers.

I'm organizing another round of the Flat Rate Fill-a-Box (New Years 2010 Edition)

Check it out!   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332314.0   

We will be swapping a medium flat rate box full of gently used supplies.  Clean out your craft areas and get some "new-to-you" craft supplies in return.  Great for stash busting!
