Details of swap:


Do you find yourself scanning the shelves in bookstores for McGee's novel 'Deep Six'? Have you built a boat in your basement, just so you can try and figure out how Gibbs will get his out? Do you bowl with nun's?

Then this is the swap for you!

Crafting requirements

This will be a 5 point swap. You can indicate on your questionnaire and/or discuss with your partner if you would like to craft more.

Large  = 3 points (eg. Bag, plushie, scarf, skirt)
Medium = 2 points (eg.)
Small = 1 point (eg. Magnets, earrings, wallets, bookmarks)

Sending

If you are mailing within your own country you MUST get a DC# (delivery confirmation) when you send your swap package. If you’re mailing internationally, you MUST KEEP YOUR RECEIPT (or other proof of mailing that is approved by me before sending)! And I require a picture or scan of the postal receipts so I can verify that you have sent.

Flakers’s beware. Gibb’s rules apply to swaps as well!
1.   Never screw over your partner.

beckashell’s rules [much like Gibbs rules] DO NOT BREAK THESE

~ Make sure you post in the thread and stay updated by bookmarking this thread.

~ Everybody needs to post in the thread at least once a week, or I will have to hunt you down via pm! Please do not send out to your partner if they have missed that week’s check-in! This is to prevent flakers.


Some ideas to get you started:

-   a crocheted pillow with Gibbs rules on it.
-   Abby’s stuffed hippo, Bert – bonus points to anyone that can make one that farts!
-   '30 things I learned from NCIS' list on a tote bag (eg. including gems such as 'You can always       tell a woman's intentions by her panties' and 'Nobody messes with a man riding an elephant'.)
-   Ziva-isms on a bag/wall hanging/mug…
-   A Ducky duck
-   Kaf Pow cup holder/cosy

Huge thank you to Sazzra for most of these brilliant crafting ideas!  ;D ;D

I think I may have figured out how to give Bert gas!  That sounded wrong, but well you know what I mean.

What a perfect idea for a swap!  NCIS is one of my very favourite things.

Happy crafting to all, and may Bert's gas be loud and resonant :D

I know exactly how to make a farting hippo - well, the fart anyway, the hippo is a whole different ball game!

I will put some thought into the questionnaire and get it sent back asap. ;D

I don't have time for this swap unfortunately (stupid school). But just wanted to put in that I will be stalking the gallery when everyone gets their goodies. (also hippos are my favorite animals have been all my life-have giggled every time Bert is on screen-I would love to know how to make a hippo that farts)  ;D

Post by: MidwestManiac on March 21, 2010 10:26:08 AM
Although I won't be participating in this swap (I'd love to), I've got a suggestion for the erm... "farting" issue. While wandering around Walgreens last week they had self-inflatable whoopie cushions. They are a tad smaller than the original W.C. so they could easily be stuffed inside a handmade Bert. I think they were something silly priced like 3 for $3.50 or something. Hope this is useful to someone.  ;D

Hiya...not going to be able to join but I have made a farting hippo before...because of NCIS...I made one for my partner cause he thought Bert was hilarious...I crocheted a hippo out of nice thick brownish wool and then used a self-inflating woopee cushion with the tail of the hippo helping to hide the part of the woopee cushion that needed to stick out to let the air out...was lots of fun to make and still works over a year and a half later...farting whenever squeezed...anyway sorry I can't join in...over committed but wanted to share, have fun everyone!  Look forward to seeing what you all make...

I'm currently in a swap that ends on the 30th. Can I still sign up, like, in the afternoon or something? It's my first swap, and I know I'm not supposed to 'double up' until after it's been completed successfully....

Just sent in my entrance. I was so excited to fill it out, though, that I might have left some things out. LOL! Maybe when partners are assigned I can add what I might have forgotten. Ha ha! This will be my first, so I hope I don't let anyone down.

Check your inbox!

Everyone that has sent me a PM is now in the swap! Please check that you are listed in the first post and that your profile says "IN PROGRESS"

In other news... I completely forgot to mention about postage! *slaps wrist* Bad organiser!

!!IMPORTANT SWAP INFO!!

If you are mailing within your own country you MUST get a DC# (delivery confirmation) when you send your swap package. If you’re mailing internationally, you MUST KEEP YOUR RECEIPT (or other proof of mailing that is approved by me before sending)! And I require a picture or scan of the postal receipts so I can verify that you have sent.


I will be adding this information to the first post, and will remind you again when we get closer to send outs. Sorry for forgetting to add it!

And one last thing. Then I promise to leave you alone. WISTS! (http://www.wists.com)
I noticed that quite a few of you did not have one! There's not really a need for one with this swap, but really they help out your swap partners soooooo much! Plus they are great for you as well. I really recommend that you all get one asap. Feel free to ask any questions if you are unsure how they work/what to do.

And that's it. I shall go now.

I am doing my first swap too! But I have already sent my item out. Can I still participate? I LOVE NCIS! We (the hubs and I) watch it all the time. We have seen every episode at least three times.

Obviously beckashell will give you a definitive yes or no, but my understanding is that you have to wait for feedback from your first swap - generally that's when your partner has received and posted pics etc, but some swaps wait until both have received. Organisers are pretty good about giving feedback if you let them know you want to sign up for another one, but you'll have to wait until your partner receives either way :)

My first was a Harry Potter- personally, it was easier to do a first on something I was really familiar with/loved.  Made it much easier and stress free :D  Hope you join! 

I'm off to knit and watch some season 3 :D

Hooray!  The timing on sign up for the NCIS swap was perfect!  I just finished my swap-- Jar of Whimsies, so perfect timing!  Beckashell, I've been watching your signature over in the JOW thread waiting, waiting.  NCIS is my all time favorite show.

I'm a little nervous about coming up with ideas, but I think once we get paired up and I watch some NCIS, the ideas will just pop.  That's how it was for JOW, anyway :D

I just added 4 more people to the swap. Micheleigh - you're in! I must have gone to bed by the time you sent in your questions. Remember Australia is in the future :D

Please everyone check that you are listed in the very first post and that your profile says "IN PROGRESS".
I've been checking but i'd really like you guys to as well. I hadn't checked my own profile and I got the date wrong by 50 years....

Those thinking about joining.... DO IT! This swap took a year to organise!! :D Who knows when the next one will be. There's some ideas of things to make in the first post if that's what your worried about - and your fellow craftsters are sure to help as well!

I'm currently in a swap that ends on the 30th. Can I still sign up, like, in the afternoon or something? It's my first swap, and I know I'm not supposed to 'double up' until after it's been completed successfully....

Sazzra answered this perfectly. But i'll PM you and have a look at your current swap and when it ends.

So how many people are going to watch the whole series in order to get some ideas?  I think I might just have to.  Although there are a couple things that jumped out at me right away.

I feel like watching some funny episodes. Any recommendations? I've already watched Red Cell (season 1) where Kate and Tony break into McGee's apartment and Driven (season 4) with the sexual harassment seminar.

But I need more! Help me out?

Witch Hunt (Season 4) is one of my favourites - it's the Halloween episode with Klingons and Marilyn Monroe ( ::)obviously!).
Doppelganger - Season 2 (Poison Ivy and the 'twins')

Tough to think of the funny ones that don't have too many corpses :-\

I thought for a minute you were confused and meant the shower scene where Kate is singing Outrageous! :)
But then I remembered the SWAK shower scene and it is indeed awesome. Plus it's just such a good episode!

I love Kate and Tony scenes - they are so funny. Just remembered when they went undercover at the pregnancy clinic.  :D :D

Post by: sazzra on March 23, 2010 02:45:01 AM
I'd forgotten that one! That was fantastic ;D

Let's face it - the basic premise of NCIS is rubbish (navy cops investigate murders. Oooh, how original - not!) but the characters and their relationships are what shifts it from just another crime drama into the genius level. It has to be one of the best cast dramas around too - I so want to go to the NCIS convention in the States, they actually go on set sometimes :o

I'm also part of the big group harassing the main British company to get them going here - they do 2 Torchwood ones a year but won't even get us ONE NCIS guest! It's outrageous

I'm about to go to work but i'll see if I can be of help when I get home tonight. After all, I practically forced you both into signing up for wists :)

I know my wist often won't work if i've clicked the "images only" button in a thread. Could that be it?

Anyway, i've gotta go. Will look into this tonight.

You know the timing on a swap is good when the very episode listed on your questionnaire randomly shows on TV! Season 7 is currently airing with the new eps on Fridays, so last night there was a bonus of SWAK. Very spooky after mentioning the shower scene on here!

I've decided to make my family watch NCIS at dinner every night. So tonight we started off with Yankee White.

Kate came on the screen and my Dad said: "Who's that? She looks familiar...."

We soon realised that he was recognising her as.... Kate. Her working for the secret service totally confused him. Not that i'm surprised. This is the man that thinks Tony's last name is Spinozzo. *bows head in shame*

Last night was reruns on CBS! I was sooo glad because I had scheduled a class. My husband texted me that it was a rerun.
NCIS- was the one with Frank's daughter-in-law and granddaughter being threatened. (Not the one where his son dies)
NCISLA- Was the one where Abby is kidnapped and the LA team has to find her.

Both very good episodes, but I had already seen them, so I wasn't missing anything new.

USA usually has back-to-back episodes starting at 5, and a lot of weekends they have all-day marathons.

Aww too bad you didn't find Craftster a month ago :(

But you can share craft ideas with us if you have any! I have an idea stuck in my head but no way of getting supplies for it. So I need something new :)

I can no longer contain my excitement!! In order to avoid beginning all my crafting for this swap (without knowing my partner) I stayed up and made my sister a Barney (How I met your mother ) doll last night , with a tote bag and a audio cd of the Bro Code.  I certainly hope that I haven't just wasted my crafting Karma and hit a block...I can't wait !!!
I have a ton of ideas, and I know how to make the farting hippo from the you tube video, genius and too easy. I have a feeling there will be a lot of them out there.

lol. I do that too. I am the stalking queen.

Not sure if i'll be sending out partners today or tomorrow. I usually get my sister to double check everything for me to make sure I haven't missed anything. And we have a bunch of allergies and things in this group so I think it would be in everyones best interests to wait that day more.

But instead of Gibbs glaring at me why don't you all ...
share your favourite NCIS outfit. And what episode it is from.
eg. Abby in her poodle skirt, Tony when the iguana scares him :D

No Gibbs glaring, just Abby bouncing ;D

How about Tony's outfit where he gives McGee his shirt? ;)
I loved Abby's outfit and parasol at Kate's funeral, and her stripey socks under the car doing her Wicked Witch of the West impression. Ziva wears some really cool blouses/shirts, the type of thing I'd wear all the time if I could find them.

I hate McGee's 'writer's' outfit - the turtleneck (itchy looking) sweater and the old man jacket with patches *shudder*

Does anyone remember what episode Abby makes a hat out of like, a doctors mask or something, and she makes one for (I think) Kate as well? I can't remember and its bugging me so.. I wanna see the funny hat thingy. :P

Organisers note: Yes, it's true. Partners have FINALLY been posted!

You should all have received a PM with your partners information. There is also a master list in the second post of this thread.


Once you know who your partner is please PM them just to say hello. Ask questions, get to know each other a little. It will make this swap that much more fun when you are swapping with a friend!
If you didn’t have a particularly detailed questionnaire now would be a great time to share some more info with your partner. Discuss fav quotes and moments! Share your wist/blog address if it wasn't in your questionnaire.

Please keep in contact with your partner and post on the swap board at least once a week. You all agreed to this on your questionnaire and it will be noted in your feedback. We want this to be a happy flake free swap! :D

And remember to PM me if you have any questions/problems! If you are stuck for ideas, haven't heard from your partner in a while, are unsure about the whole swapping process - please just ask for help. Don't disappear off the face of the earth!

That said, HAPPY CRAFTING!!  :D :D

I don't actually have a favourite myself. I was just curious about what you all thought. Is Fornell considered a badguy? I liked him.

And Abby's evil assistant. Chip? I didn't like him, but I DID like Abs tying him up!

That's the thing with Ari - totally ruthless, heartless blah blah blah but there was still something (I'd go off in a Morgan with him any day!)

Chip was creepy *shudder* That tash - urgh! What about Michael Maurer, Abby's ex weirdo boyfriend? Does he qualify as bad or just weird?

HAHA!  Did anyone else wonder why there was duct tape on his forehead as well as over his mouth?  It cracks me up every time I see it.

Hmmm...favorite bad guy....I'll have to think about that one.

OOH OOH!!  Trent Cort...I think that runs along the same lines as Fornell.  But he's also in the same category as Ari, I think.

Yes! I dont care if Abby's ex counts or not, I vote him. Amused the hell outta me.
And Ari was great, in a ruthless kinda way.

Chip was just.. eeeew. Yuuuuuckyyyy....

I did like Ari as a bad guy, and his interactions with Kate-- normally I dislike Kate!  But I think my favorite bad guy was Jeffery White. You know, the convict-escapes-with-DiNozzo-undercover episode?  (If that's actually his name.  I'm too lazy to double check right now).  I have a thing for DiNozzo being a sad woobie, and that ep def. counted as him being a sad woobie.

I would have to say my favorite bad guy is La Grenouille, the Frog, Jeanne's dad, the Bane of Jenny's existence, whatever you want to call him. He was just so cultured, and refined, and didn't really act like a bad guy.

Ari- Hot, but he did kill Kate. :(
Chip- Creepy and he tried to frame Tony :(
Michael- Funny, but super creepy. And he could have really hurt Abby, and he reminded me of Kris Angel :(
Jeffrey- Was unexpected, but I didn't really like him.

Today's NCIS question: Favourite bad guy?? And why?

Favorite bad guys?  Kind of hard to pick as most are one-time shows, the ones already mentioned, Ari, Abby's stalker, the French guns man, how about the guy who kidnapped his own family?  The little girl was so darling, & helpful.  I love the episodes with darling children that everyone takes under their care, it shows how caring our team is.  & I really like Fornell, he's not really a bad guy, I love Gibbs secret 'friendship' with him.  I still like the ep on Halloween, when that wicked "sister" turns out to be the bad guy, I love how the mother, when she knows that her daughter is safe, suddenly knocks the "sister" out, & says "I don't have a sister!"

I have a really great idea for my partner's goodies!  Also, my brother got me season 4 on DVD for my birthday.  w00t!

I would say Ari is my favorite bad guy.  He's pretty good looking and he got rid of Kate for the greater good of the show.  But I got mad when he tried to get Abby.

Ok, I got my wists figured out, thanks to my partner.  ;D  Now to figure out how to get my BF off the computer long enough for me to get busy! Was SO looking forward to shopping this weekend for my crafting supplies (have to drive at least 30 minutes to get to something besides Wal-Mart) but alas, we are getting my BF's son, who is 8, this weekend. Waiting on the call right now so we can go pick him up. But the good news is that I can hide in my room with my Ipod and watch reruns of NCIS on TV.com's free app I downloaded. Sweet.

I can't wait to get started! And to see what everyone else comes up with.    ;)

Okay, now that I've eaten twice my own bodyweight in chocolate and cheesecake - Easter plus a 50th b-day (not mine!) - I cannot move and am therefore situated perfectly for non-stop crafting and NCIS watching.  It should be at least four days before I can start rolling around the house and a good week before my legs will work again.

And is anyone else going mad with all the crafty possibilities of this swap?!?  Fun!

Yes! But I have a few other swaps that need to be finished first so I can't start. But i've been making my way through season 2 while I make alphabet inchies :) I'm getting more tv watching than crafting done. But hey, it's research! :D

I haven't yet started crafting (been practicing sewing for me and making gifts haha), but I'm brainstorming away!  Going out of town for a few days tomorrow and the best part is it's back to my college town...and my favorite LQS!  ;)  It'll be exciting.

I had an epiphany about what I was going to make the other night while trying to fall asleep.  That seems to be when genius strikes me...either as I'm trying to sleep or when I'm trying not to wake up in the morning. 
Anyway, started it 2 nights ago, worked on it after Easter dinner and between way too much chocolate and cheesecake (is it a pattern, Rossie?).  I did my specific research today....much more difficult than I thought (more on that once the swap is finished!).  I will have much more work to do on this, but I have another swap to finish first.

I only watched the pilot and didn't really like it that much. I admit that I didn't really try and give them a chance. I was just "you're not Gibbs, I hate you." I'll have to try and download them because I would like to see the Abby episode.

Give LA another try.  Heddie is like a mini female Gibbs in a way.  She is quickly turning into my favorite NCIS:LA character.  Hands down.

Too true! terrifyingly powerful things come in small packages, I guess. I havent watched too much of LA but I dig it. I really like the nerdy computer guy too.. so cute! I forget his name..
I think Im just in love with nerds, though. Same with Spencer Reid from criminal minds if anyones seen that. the more socially akward they are, the more adorable. its a proven scientific fact!

I'm personally not worried about spoilers (I usually check the episode reviews on Live Journal anyway), I'm just annoyed that the channel cheerily announces 'And we''l be back with the rest of the new season at some point in the future, when we can be bothered, have some series 3 repeats' >:(

My Friday nghts are now 50% ruined (at least they haven't stopped True Blood!)

For someone so gobby about 'You could make this and this and this...' before we started, I'm sstill scratching my head too! I'm hoping it's because I'm still doing my Tarot swap, and once that is posted my brain will kick into gear  ;)

sorry ive been stalking the NCIS thread..
but ive got to say M&M did make speckled eggs, i know I saw them before Easter. Don't know if they have them anymore I went to three Target stores yesterday trying to track down my favorite Easter candy Starbust Jelly Beans Red Fruits ( you can only get the red fruits bag at Target to the best of my knowledge) now that they are on sale and there were NONE to be found. I was bummed, should have picked them up before... I guess its good for my waistline tho i should be dieting not eating junk :-\
M&M also made speckled or pastel M&Ms in all the flavors.

I've got my Dad hooked on NCIS. He's starting from the beginning and is watching about 3 episodes a night. His hearing isn't that great and everytime I laugh at a line and he doesn't, I have to pause the show and tell him what was said. :D

I watched Chimera (season 5) tonight.
TONY: [singing]
Baa baa, black ship
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir
But in order to see it you're going to need top secret government clearance.

Oh good! I was so worried that that might not be producing them anymore. I guess it's just the supermarkets near me. And i've never heard of a Starburst easter treat. I'm intrigued :)

Oh good! I was so worried that that might not be producing them anymore. I guess it's just the supermarkets near me. And i've never heard of a Starburst easter treat. I'm intrigued :)

I watch NCIS sometimes, it is my parents favorite show, they watched the original JAG and now love NCIS. I usually watch it, but its not on my list of absolute favorites.  I miss Tony & Kate's interactions

The undercover agent with LAPD is a liaison with NCIS now...and the guy with the eye patch killed 2 guys.  I can't remember their names though.

I got a few supplies this week when I went to Hobby Lobby (which is 30 minutes from where I live  :( ) and I'm excited to start on one project this afternoon after my BF's son's soccer game.

And I must say I really liked the last episode. It showed Gibbs....well....weak side? LOL! And the interaction with Tony and Tim was really good. The 7 year itch. Haha!

There is still plenty of time - and as I haven't started sendouts will most likely be extended a bit. Unless you guys have all been good and sent already :P

PM me if you want to talk about things. I'll try and remember to look over yours and your partners questionnaires tomorrow.

Question to those of you in the States. Did M&M bring out speckled Easter eggs this year? We didn't get any in OZ and the Easter bunny had to buy me Cadbury ones!! It was a sad day.

They only had them at Coles this year but you can still get them on 50% sell out if you're quick.


In other news, I am BACK!  And CRAFTING!  Life is grand :D

Hi all,  I have been miserably sick since the first of April.  Then after a week, I get an ear infection, so need antibiotics, & now, 4 days of meds, nothing's really changed, but I forget to check these posts these last few days.   This crafting items is still scary, but am still thinking about things.  I'm envious of people who've posted that they just got Season 4 or 5, 6, or something, I so very much want the dvd seasons!

At least Youtube exists for those without dvds :)

My latest obsession is watching Tony sing in Driven [4x11]. Over and over again. I now know all the words...

In my perspective,
I see the people from the big jet plane,
The woman looks teutonic,
She drinks a vodka tonic,
Two bald men sit with her
Waiting for a fourth
They’re not going to order that main course
Until that person comes

Oh sorry, I just do what I can
I gotta do, what I gotta do
I’m just a man
Oh speaking of man
Another man walk through that front door
Wearing a polka dot scarf
Will he join the table?
I dunno, yes he does
And greets the pretty lady
What do they say? Who knows?

He’s sitting at the table with the other people from the plane
They are having a conversation
A heavy, heavy conversation
That man talk-a talk-a talk a lot
talk-a talk a lot

Jenny, I think I’ve been made
Do you see what I see?

Things are coming along pretty good for me here.. I was talking with my friend (who got me hooked in NCIS in the first place) and he gave me SUCH a great idea for an item, I just hope I can find the stuff to make it... After that though I just have to finish one half done item and I might have everything..

Hope everyone elses stuff is coming along well!

Not started yet (mad week so I'm starting at the weekend) but I did manage to spread the NCIS love whilst buying whoopee cushions in a local shop (and that's not a spoiler - my partner wasn't fussed about a Bert so she's getting other stuff ;)). It's kind of bizarre to be discussing Gibbs whilst ensuring that the cushions are suitably loud and 'pfffffffffffffffffttttttttttt' - y :-\

It's spring brain-melt time.  This is completely forgivable.  Of course, I'm going to be like a windstorm the next three weeks, so I'm steeling myself ahead of time haha.

Don't ya love how you plan for things, say you are going to do them, and then something happens to ruin those plans? I had planned on crafting all last week when I got home from work. Alas, that didn't happen. Thanks to "baby mama" drama, I was so stressed out and depressed all week, I wasn't motivated to do much at all! She was txting my BF two weeks ago, saying all kinds of smack about me, saying we'd never get their son again, that she was going to keep me from ever being around him again. Then she starts sending ME the messages, talking bad about me. I told her if she didn't leave me alone, I was going to file harassment charges on her. That set her off even more, saying she was going to get a restraining order on both of us so we couldn't come around her son anymore. Then she started saying even MORE hateful things to me. Long story short, BF and I have been together for 3 1/2 years, his son is 8, mother was 16 when she had him....he had a lapse in judgement and thought he wanted her about a year ago, sent her a dirty picture of himself...she threw that at me, and I fell apart....last Saturday was a disaster (which was when all this came out). We fought, we argued, we settled things. She sent another txt and threatened to basically beat me up if I even got out of my car if we came to soccer practice. We didn't go, but we did show up yesterday for the game. We had to walk right past her as we walked to the field, and she says, "She must have some balls!" Completely ignored her and kept walking. How imature! She's only hurting her son....or as she says THEIR son, and that I'll never be anything to him. Some people just shouldn't be mothers, ya know? So all this mess has got me on the edge, and I haven't slept well, haven't been able to eat without feeling nauseous, and haven't gotten much of anything done!

BUT....on the crafting side....HAHA....I am so excited that I picked out a craft that is on my partner's wist, and I didn't even know it! Well, its not EXACTLY what she has, but it is very similar. As a hint, I am going to crochet it instead of knitting it. I would knit it, as knitting looks better, but even with a month to work on them, I'd not have finished in time. I am a SLOW knitter! I am much faster at crochet.

Now its off to make some beer bread for the BF's mother....tradition to eat Sunday supper (lunch) with them....EVERY Sunday. Its ok, though. They have a HUGE family, and I love it! Wanna share a couple of pictures I took yesterday...love photography and taking pictures.

https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/99318_18Apr10_DSCN0816.JPG (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/99318_18Apr10_DSCN0816.JPG)
The BF's son Steven playing soccer. He loves it, even though he only wants to play goalie so he doesn't have to run. LOL!



Some lilac that I got from my grandma's bush yesterday. Forgive the paper towel under the vase....I actually made that vase. Its a soup can, painted copper color, then freehanded flowers on it. Came in handy, because all my vases were too tall for the short sticks of the branches I had to break off for the lilac.

Anyway, happy crafting today!!

months ago with their boss's husband, which ended in a restraining order...I'd say if you weren't worried about not seeing the son to follow through and file charges.  Luck!

And back on crafty topic goodness, I've got everything planned...once I'm back from the beach it's craftin' time!  Actually, I might be able to find some good stuff here too...hmmmm.....

YAYYYYY! I'm definitely thinking it's a bad photo of something AWESOME! I'm so excited.

I was so confused that you "shouted" my name and then slapped your head --> cause i'm an idiot and it didn't immediately click that I had been GIBBS SLAPPED!  :o

I actually shouted out (i'm at work) and so everyone stared at me. Not something I can explain easily...  :D "Someone just virtually slapped the back of my head. But it's okay cause Gibbs does it to Tony all the time. And I love Gibbs. What, what do you mean who's Gibbs?"

Here is another week - so out of my element - making things, like big things, for someone else.  I am so not confident, so not comfortable.  But I'm researching possibilities.  Still not sure what projects of 2 points consist of.  Full speed ahead, to use my "Navy" talk!

And if it's any consolation at all, the whole date thing passed me by totally ;) I think we may be twins

Post by: beckashell on April 19, 2010 12:49:02 AM
Okay, everyone is a little confused over this whole points thing. It confuses me too :D
But here's a little clarification.

This is a 5 point swap.


A small item is worth 1 point
A medium item worth 2 points
A large item is worth 3 points

That means you can make and send:
- 5 small items
- 1 small, 2 mediums
- 1 small, 1 medium and one large

You are of course allowed to send extras! Spoilage is always encouraged. :D But it not a requirement so unless you've discussed it with your partner, don't expect extras in return.

Now some examples.

Smalls - an NCIS coin purse, NCIS stitch markers (would it be creepy having all their faces..? It'd be like Abby's doll heads...), Abby hair accessories, a felt ipod - just like Abs gave the gang!
medium - an Abby inspired (skulls?) crochet roll, jewelry (a necklace, bracelet and earrings)
large - a Gibbs doll (i'll send you a lollypop if you are able to made it head-slap people), a crime scene scarf

These things also do depend on your skill level. I can't crochet so unless it didn't involve much effort at all I would most likely call it a large.

But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you need ideas or want to know how many points something you are making is worth, send me a quick PM. Or if you don't like me, PM someone else that's in the swap!

I've sent (or am about to send) a PM to those of you that have voiced concerns in the thread. If any others are unsure. Please send me a PM! It's better to get it all sorted out now than at the last minute.

Hope that helped a little....

Are they really as good as they sound? There are some amazing combinations but they are pricey, and there's shipping to the UK on top, so it's not something I'd want to risk without first hand experiences!

On topic, I'm on to my last item so barring accidents will be able to send after the weekend. Hurrah!

If you end up not liking a scent, there is a huge trading community. I've gotten a lot of imp's ears (their samples) this way and folks are really awesome about trading. It's also a great way to get rid of scents that didn't mix well with your body chemistry and also to try out something that sounds good before investing.

The thing about perfume oils even moreso than eau is that to me, it changes even more depending on body chemistry. What comes to the forefront scent-wise on one person, may not be at the forefront on another.

I just got into trading imps with my friends, actually. :) Or well, have made plans to. I have not purchased any but I am taking some off the hands of others with plans to swap in the future. I'm very excited about it.

In swap related news: have a whoooole day of crafting tomorrow! All my supplies are in. I have 2 and 9/10ths projects complete with one only needing a tiny piece to be finished! I think I have three more to go? lol I've lost count. But major crafty crackdown tomorrow for sure.

That would be the Recorded Signed for service - it gives a tracking number on the receipt. Otherwise you ask the Post Office for proof of posting, but obviously that's not trackable and there's no compensation if it gets lost

I am working on some of my small projects today since I'm caught up on my swaps. So excited and can't wait. I'm expecting to send either Thursday or Friday since I'll be busy with Free Comic Book Day on the first.

I must have NCIS on the brain (teehee) I grabbed my box of Kix on Sunday to make myself a quick breakfast, (so that I could get to crafting) and noticed on the back of the back of the box they have "The Maize Maze" I started laughing uproariously, and the hubs gave me a funny look. I am convinced that the people at General Mills are NCIS fans as well!

Small correction, it's the first Saturday of May. Not just the 1st.

BTW: There are some comic book stores in Oz participating. I know I clicked on Adelaide and 2 stores came up. The international store locator is here -> http://freecomicbookday.com/fcbd_global.asp

On topic though... Anyone wanna make me a Deeks doll? He was somewhat adorable this week.

MINI-ORGANISER NOTE
I plan on giving feedback to partners as soon as both partners have received/posted photos/showered each other in thanks. If anyone needs feedback earlier to join a new swap, I will give it IF your partner has received, and you promised to still stick around and post photos once you also receive. Make sense??  ???

So, I check the USPS website and they say my PO is open from 10 til 1. Great. I show up at 12:15 (because I had voice earlier) and they're closed. Not so great. Apparently they switched hours and it was never updated on the website. GRRRRR.

I will be sending out Monday from work.

Also there are a few people I haven't heard from. Please contact me ASAP. If your partner has not been in contact with you for a while, please contact me ASAP.

THANK YOU!!  :)

OMG guys it has been CRAZY here in Tennessee! I spent most of the day yesterday watching the weather, trying to find a place to hide from all the tornadoes! Here where I live we fared a little better than about an hour north of here, in Nashville. We've been glued to the TV watching the coverage. This is what's been going on:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YT3SIIxG5kM
This link is a bad view, and has no audio, but it really lets you see what has been happening. It is from the TDOT highway cameras.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5gYhLKwSp4
This one is from our local news station, can hear a little audio. The real scary thing is that someone died in this area while trying to rescue a driver stranded, and about an hour or more later than this was shot, you couldn't even see the concrete median separating the two sides. Right off the interstate here there were school buses that were parked at a school and all you could see was the white tops, and they were floating away. Even the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital has flooding on its bottom floors. Its so scary! Lots of power outages, closed streets, cars, homes, and businesses destroyed.

I'm hoping that my package can leave Tennessee ok with no problems. The airport in Nashville is even shut down!

My package is awaiting pick up from the mailroom and I will PM my partner and the mod when I get the DC# from them. :D

LadyBugz, I apologize for the crazy amount of tape I used on the box! It got wet on my way to the office - I had to walk 5 blocks in a downpour to get my trolley to work - so I added quite a bit of the sticky stuff to make sure it holds! lol. :D

Don't worry, I've been checking too. Very compulsively. What I want to know is why it went east to NJ when it's going way west!  I can't wait until you get it!  I'm horrible at keeping secrets and I just want to tell you (and everyone else) everything!

Post tracking is universally pathetic.  It's a wee bit rural here so my mail is always late and most of the time I've still had it a week before tracking says it's in the nearest regional centre.  Oh well, at least they try.
 
Moved all the photos off my camera this morning and have been trying very hard to leave them alone.  If I keep looking at the snaps I'll want to blurt everything out and that would thoroughly spoil the surprise!

I might maybe possibly be able to help out, but only as a last resort.  If you can't get a hold of her, I could make a thing or two.  But no more Abby dolls.  That one killed me.

I bought Hocus Pocus yesterday because my sister and I LOVED it when we were younger. We decided to watch it at dinner tonight. I screamed when a certain Probie appeared on the screen! It was so exciting to see a young McGee!  :D :D Made my night.

And he's doing a British accent... teehee!

Hope all the lovely Mums are having a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!!!!


AFAIK, he doesn't do his own voice in the movie. It's Jason Marsden (who also played Max Goof). J is an amazing voice actor and person. Very sweet.

Dear NCIS-swappers,

I'm going away for a few days so will probably be without the internet. Please continue to PM me if you send/receive. I don't want to have to issue any headslaps when I get back.

Thanks!!

I have come to the conclusion my package is being walked from Canada to Aus. After all I mailed the darn thing out like a month ago and it's not there yet!

Here's a teaser just to keep Rossie intrested untill it gets there.

Yes, we're so cut off from the rest of the world are have an irrational fear of change. No planes or boats for us. Walking or even carrier-Kookaburra is the way we like to do things!

That package looks HUGE and really really good. I think that I want it to arrive almost as badly as Rossie does! :D
