I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Details of swap:

Don't be a chewy chocolate chip cookie, join the Shawn Spencer and friends revelry! Whether you like all the random 80's references, Shawn's amazing hair or just Henry's outrageous shirts, this swap is for you!

Crafting requirements

This will be a 5 point swap {with at least 1 medium/large}. You can indicate on your questionnaire and/or discuss with your partner if you would like to craft more.

Large  = 3 points (eg. Psych bag, life pize plush pineapple, crime scene scarf, Gus's dinosaur head, apple jacks tshirt)
Medium = 2 points (eg. snow globes for Lassie!, a hawaiian print shopping bag for Henry)
Small = 1 point (eg. ATCs of Gus's many alias, character bookmarks, a tea wallet decorated with creepy fish like the one of Chief vics desk )

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.


beckashell’s 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.

I understand that life can be hectic and unpredictable, and I know that unlike me you have lives and are not of Craftster 24/7. But when you get the chance just a short update on how things are going would be nice.


Some ideas to get you started:

- Round one gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284462.0)
- make your own Psychic is IN (http://www.nbcuniversalstore.com/detail.php?p=44963&AID=10426142&PID=1992680&ecid=AFF-7975437) mug
- Psych iphone case like Shawn's
- Psych wiki (http://psych-usa.wetpaint.com/page/Psych+Episode+Quotes) - quotes etc
- Psych font (http://www.scrapvillage.com/fontsd.htm) [dateline] - thanks Atellix!


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer. Please label the PM "PSYCH swap questionnaire"

OH MY GOODNESS! I have a feeling as soon as my feedback is posted I am going to be signed up for five swaps all at once, because I have been waiting for this one! Greatest show ever!

hehe i missed that, but an NCIS swap would be sweet too. I love abby and ducky. Got tons of ideas for this one though, depending on my partners likes!

I thought maybe NCIS was a reference I didn't get. My survey is sent, I listed a favorite episode, it's my favorite title (Poker? I hardly know her), but I really like them all.

Oh yes, that's one of my favs as well!

My other favourites are: Scary Sherry, Black and Tan and American Duos.

I'm pretty sure one of had named my favs on your questionnaire.... we're Psych soul mates! :P

Those are all awesome episodes, I love when they get all excited about starting the Scary Sherry urban legend;get mock offended about the Black=Gus, Tan=Shawn assumption, and of course when the sing "Shout".

I really wish that they could get the rights to the songs that they sing for the Psych-outs at the end of the episodes. People who only watch the DVDs are missing out on the awesome singing moments from the tv-aired episodes!

Case in point:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOMVWHLyzp4 (one of my favorites!)

I loved it when they did the theme song in Spanish when Shawn was on the Soap Opera! I need that in my life but I haven't been able to find it. =(

And I really want to join this swap but I'm afraid come partner time, I won't be able to come up with anything!! or have the time because of school.

(but I may still do it because Shawn and Gus are awesome!!)

Oh, would it be ok to ask my partner if one of the items can be made for my boyfriend? He is the reason I am in love with Psych. He made me watch it one day and I have been in love since.

I read the rules wrong - thought i was supposed to have completed two swaps to participate, but i guess it's the organizer that must have done that.   Thanks for making me read the rules again. :)  You're right- few more posts and i will be participating.

Well you're all in. Everyone please check your profiles to make sure that this swap is listed and the dates are correct. Craftster occasionally goes crazy and changes dates to December 1969 :D :D

We have a lot of swap newbies this round! WELCOME!!

Please ask lots of questions if you are unsure about something. Myself or any of the other craftsters will be happy to help!

Dear swappers,

Since we have quite a few newbies in this swap I thought that i'd share with you the wonder that is www.wists.com (http://www.wists.com)

A wist is an online wishlist. It is very easy to set up and very easy to add pictures to (unless your computer runs at dial-up speed like mine...)

It is a great resource for you and for your swap partners. It is especially helpful if you haven't made many posts on Craftster and aren't a FOC. It can give your partner some ideas of things that you like.

Hope this makes sense. I really recommend that you all go get one ASAP. You can have a look at my wist - it's in my signature line (look under this comment)

Is everyone in the group caught up with the show or do we need to watch out for spoilers?

If I get at least one "don't spoil me" then I know to change the font color.

Yayyyy, Pysch. This is my first Craftster swap can't wait. I am working on a Wist but give a few days, I have few weeks of school left and am fighting a round of migraines so it may take a while.

My daughter is thrilled about this swap she is helping me make a list of "Shawn" approved items  :D.

It involves the "ouch" chalk outline photo promo.

It's not amazing but I get really excited when I get an idea.

Who here is a fan of the "Big adventures of Little Shawn & Gus?"

puzzler - we get our partners usaually a day or so after the signups end, so here May 3rd is the last day to sign up. I know what you mean, waiting for partners after you sign up is the hardest part! You could be proactive and start stalking everybody, or maybe thats just me.

I already bought some pineapple themed crafting supplies, just don't know how to use them yet.

Post by: beckashell on April 28, 2010 05:39:04 AM
I will most likely have partners out the second signups end. I don't want to close them early cause there were a few people that have been waiting for this swap for a few months and they haven't joined yet...

I never got into little Shawn and Gus. Thought they were adorable characters but never got into the humour of it. I love the kid that plays young Shawn though - they couldn't have done a better job casting him.

Really? I love the cartoons. I didn't really like the high school years one. They weren't as funny to me as the cartoons.

I'm not a fan of young Gus bu I agree with you about young Shawn. They did a really good job. I love the flashback!

I love the flashbacks! never really got into the cartoons. I am not sure the little shawn is the same tho, maybe just the first few episodes were different? and i know young gus has changed. i love the one where they go back to when shawn was a teenager and of course its james roday playing him

My list of Pysch crafts is growing can't wait to start.  :)

Off topic, I am hoping those with a Wist can help me. I am trying to put mine together but it's not working. I click the Add to Wists button it takes me to a blank page that says to create a thumbnail shot but again no pictures to choose from only keyword and optional info boxes. What am I missing
I tried the blog but no help there.

Haven't had anyone signup in a day. We might have all that we are going to get. I have to say - it's more people than I thought would join! :D

But i'll leave it open over the weekend incase anyone wants to join at the last minute!

Hmmm.... i'm terrible at figuring out computer problems.

The top of the 'create a thumbnail' page usually has things like emoticons and stuff at the top. You have to scroll down for the real pictures. But i'm guessing you know how to scroll. So that's not it...  ;)

I find that the thumbnails don't appear for me if i've clicked "show images only" on Craftster. You have to be looking at the original thread.

And I feel like i'm confusing you. And me.

Anyone else want to have a go? :D

I find that the Wist website sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It all depends on the day. Maybe refresh?

I am also SUPER excited for this swap and can't wait for partners! I keep trying to remind myself that I can't pick up supplies until AFTER I've got my partner. :P

lol i am ever so slightly ashamed to say I never stopped using the fist bump.

My psych ideas so far for this swap have a small bit to do with the pineapple, but mostly centered around the agency itself and the characters. Im really excited but at the same time really nervous because one of my ideas involves something i have never really done much of, painting. yikes.

and pineapple recipe of the day: once i cup them up I put in a shallow container with some sweetened coconut, and soak in rum for a few hours. then put them on skewers and drizzle with some grenadine. yummy! then of course you get to strain the coconut out of the rum....mmmmm... i mix with some crystal light

Good idea.

It's fine that many of you have started crafting but please be aware that you might have to adapt some of your ideas depending of your partner! That said, from the looks of your questionnaires you are all fairly easy going. :D :D

Question: Does anyone know how to make stickers for windows (you know the ones that can be taken on and off without destroying the glass)? I want to put PSYCH on my bedroom window. Maybe with a little blood ala Mr Yin....  ;)

beckashell, you could use puffy paints on a flat glass or plastic surface and then peel them off. Presto! You have a window cling! They also sell adhesive vinyl for the Cricut machine ( I only know that because I work at Joann's ;) )

I would also suggest window paint, they use in store windows, it washes off. I think it is called glass chalk or something, often used to write on cars.

Okay.... little problem.

I missed someone's questionnaire, so we actually have an odd number of people in the swap.

This means we need to wait for one more person to join or a few of you to agree with doing a three way swap. eg.
swapper A --> swapperB --> swapper C --> swapper A

Any takers?


Other than my little mishap, partners are ready. So if you can let me know ASAP I can tell you who your partners are! :D :D
Sorry for the delay! But really, you guys should expect it by now. What other organiser takes 6 months to start a swap :P

That's how I've seen it done. Person A sends to Person B who sends to Person C who sends to Person A.

Now I'm nervous because what if I come up with nothing!!! I was so excitied for the Coraline swap and when it came down to it, I sent some items I was not happy with. My partner claimed to love them but still. Has that ever happen to anyone??

I agree, I always think it is nice that someone made something for me, and I am making something for someone who understands and appreciates the effort. I also think it is fun to craft for someone else other than myself and it is fun to receive gifts that i wouldn't/couldn't make for myself.

Psych fans are always willing to help out another Psych fan! Especially Psych Craftster fans! :)

OMG, I thought some of you would enjoy this. One of my favorite jokes from Psych is from the daredevils episode in Season 3, where Shawn threatens Gus and says "Man, I will punch you in the knee." Gus holds up his knee and says "Go ahead! Go ahead!", Shawn does it successfully, and Gus is limping for a few minutes.

Anyway, I saw Eddie Izzard this past weekend (LOVE HIM!) and at one part of the show he was doing a scene between two people where one said to the other "Stop that or I'll... hit you on the knee." My best friend (and fellow Psych fan) turned to me and with the most serious face said "Man, I will punch you in the knee." We proceeded to act out the scene in our seats.

It's just one of those cases where everything I see reminds me of a Psych joke. Even Eddie Izzard.  :P

"Atellix <---> Usag-chan"

it may have slipped through, because it looks like your username was misspelled


I went and checked to make sure I was on the list. I already looked through my partner's profile but I need more info before I start slamming her with PMs.  ;)

No worries! We got in touch and we are chatting! I came up with one idea. Sadly, I have to order all my supplies online.

I work and go to school all day so my crafty stores close before I get a chance to get there!! Why can't a craft store be open till 11pm?!??! Someone of us are night idea-ers!!

So etsy, here I come to order supplies. Don't fail me!!

Got one project halfway done yesterday, my best friend is visiting from FL this week so it's been slow go on the crafting, but I introduced her to Psych and after the first few episodes she was hooked!  So funny to go back and watch the pilot and see how different everything was compared to the rest of the episodes :P

I need to re watch them again. I'm hoping netflix has them so I can stream while working! I showed my boyfriend my first completed project and he thought it was awesome! I think I'm going to make us a set too.

None of the seasons of Psych are available to watch instantly on Netflix but you can have them sent to you.

After talking with my partner, I have made my list of things to make.  Now I must make a trip to the craft store to pick up my goods.  YAY! :D

Ugh! Netflix is evil! I guess I could catch up on LOST instead. Stopped watching after season 2 ended.

But that's no fun , watching another show while working on this swap!

My big victory for the weekend was plotting.  If all goes well, I know what all I'm going to make.  I've shopped, and a bunch of stuff is on its way to me.  Other than that, I got a small done, but I'm thinking it might become part of a medium.  Not sure yet.

Polished off the medium and a small, but I'm thinking of making another item. It's so much easier to craft when you actually like what you're crafting!  ;D

Thanks so much goldencrafter! This is awesome!

And now you all have no excuse for not making snow globes :)

Is anyone stuck for ideas? Do we need to do some brainstorming??

  • Jules' roller derby uniform (well probably not the entire uniform. Maybe the colours/logo on a bag or something?)
  • a fake newspaper with Shawn's horoscopes
  • an ipod phone cover with the psych logo - just like Shawn's
  • Gus and Shawn dolls in their American Duos outfits
  • little shawn and gus characters on a notebook
  • Shawn's pulley system thing - was it to carry hotdogs or something from room to room?

TBC...

My allergies got the best of me this week, and I quarantined myself in my bedroom, but now I'm back on solid foods and in my crafty corner working on a medium.  Also, I ordered some stuff a week ago from a supplier that used to be really reliable for shipping in a day or two, but it hasn't been shipped yet.  I'll call them Monday if I don't hear from them this weekend.  Ticks me off.

You can ask for it at the counter, or pick one up while in line. It is a neon green form. They put a sticker on your package that is scanned in different locations. You keep part of it with you to check online. I can't believe you are ready to send already! That is so fast.

Nicely done!  I've started everything, but I still don't have any completions.   :-[  But this weekend, I'm hijacking my mom's paper trimmer, for scissors and I =/= straight lines, and that will get me really far ahead on a medium.

Anybody got any recommendations for a dimensional glaze that dries clear with no bubbles and won't smear a picture?

Jaeliyah, Mod Podge just started making a dimensional glaze that I am interested in trying.  Our Hobby Lobby carries it over by the polymer clay if that helps!

I seem to have hit a wall as far as inspiration after getting the smalls and mediums done.  Need to watch more Psych I think!

I've done 5 swaps at once a few times and.... let's just say never again :D It was fun but completely took over my life. Technically i'm still signed up for 5 but.... organising totally doesn't count!

I just sent it.  It's gone.  Now what's left is waiting for a reaction from my partner.  I hope she's not disappointed.

I was barely able to handle 2 swaps! I make it a rule to do only one at a time. I'll only sing up for a second one if it'sa tiny swap or I'm half way done with the one I'm int he middle of.

Since we have our first sender I think that we need a GALLERY! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348260.0)

Sorry for the double post, but the thread has been a little quiet lately and quite are few of you have not been posting in the thread once a week like promised. I know that life gets in the way sometimes - but if you know you won't be able to check in for a few days just let me and your partner know so we won't be worried! :D

Is anyone stuck for ideas? PLEASE PM me! Don't just sit at home fretting!!
Or if you are unsure of how many points what you are crafting is worth - you can send me a detailed description or photos!


But here's a little more inspiration:

- some awesome pictures on deviantART (http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=psych)
- a Mrs Pickles stuffie
- a dress up kit of Shawn and Gus' many alias's
- a recipe book - full of delicious pineapple treats (and other foods mentioned on the show)
- a psych charm bracelet! (charms could be: gun (lassie), pineapple (shawn), a "magic head" (gus) etc.)
- if you have a partner who crochets/knits how about some stitch markers?


I think you can only see these is you are a member of ravelry...
- the best Psychapple (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/prelapsaria/psychapple) i've ever seen!
- the ravelry Psych swap (http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/psych/993231/1-25)
- psych tote (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/cinnamonamon/psych-swap-2-received)
-

Sorry I forgot to post last week, for some reason I thought I had. Blame it on the final week of school. At least four items will be done this week in between sewing clothes for DD. Things are going along slowly because I am trying to get things just right, I can be a bit of a perfectionist.

As Gus likes to say, "I hear that!" I'm working on something for another swap, and I dismantled the same thing FOUR TIMES before I finally got it. I totally understand.

Thanks for the tip on the Mod Podge!  I couldn't find it in-store, so I ordered it and should have it in a couple days.

I feel better know that I know I'm not the only slacker.  Crazy long days at work after being out sick.  Good times.  On the bright side, I got the package I was waiting for so I have everything I need for that project.

After HOURS of walking around Hobby Lobby yesterday I FINALLY got inspiration for the Large item, and have been hard at work ever since!  Since I know I'm not going to be doing anything else after this for the swap, I figured I'd share some other ideas I had in case people still need inspiration.

SBPD Softball Team T-Shirt
Jules' Roller Derby T-Shirt
Shabby The Sea Lion (R.I.P.)
Shawn and Gus' wrestling dolls (Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Junk Yard Dog)
A Mummy

That's all folks!

Well I thought I had 3 large projects but looking at them I see that they are really medium which is fine except that while zipping through them I came up short on supplies, GRRRRRRR. Oh well but early this morning I was hit with some more inspiration.
I am still struggling with a large project but am watching different episodes to get some help.

I'm trying a new technique as well, and my first try didn't go exactly awesome.  And my week just got insta-crazy, so I'm very looking forward to getting home and trying my hand at crafting again.  Ooh ooh ooh!  I got a pair of scissors with a laser so you can see the line you're cutting.  I'm so excited to use them!

On another note... I need to check the gallery.  More goodies to look at! YAY! :)

Okay guys,

i'm going away for the long weekend. Feel free to PM me but I won't be able to answer until Tuesday night when I get home.

Remember: Sendouts are on THURSDAY  :D

When you send please PM me and with the DC#/receipt. If you are going to be sending late please PM me or it may affect your feedback!

Thanks guys. Have a great weekend and goodluck finishing all your crafting!

And the Psych quote of the day:

Juliet O'Hara: Detective Lassiter is literally on fire today.
Shawn Spencer: "Literally on fire" as in Michael Jackson in the Pepsi commercial, or as in a misuse of the word "literally?"

I'm back home after my wonderful holiday. I got 20 new messages while I was away so it may take a while to sift through them all. It looks like most of you have sent and some have even received.

SENDOUTS HAVE NOW PAST.

EVERYBODY should have sent me a PM saying if they sent/are sending late. Make sure you have or it will be mentioned in feedback.

I'm exhausted after my flight so i'm off to bed now but i'll update everything tomorrow night after work. Thanks guys!

I swear I didn't imagine an episode....

It was to move snacks from room to room in the office. I remember it went across the screen and had a little pineapple on it. It was when the "find the pineapple" comp first started and they were putting them EVERYWHERE.

I'll try and find it...

Found it! Although not on Youtube... :(

3x08 Gus walks into a Bank

Quote
Shawn: Well, if you remember, I'm holding a bit of a grudge against this particular banking institution.
Gus: Why, because they turned you down for a small business loan last year?
Shawn: Yes, because they turned me down for a small business loan! That was completely legitimate, Gus.
Gus: Shawn, it was for a zip-line pulley system to transport snacks from the kitchen to your desk.
Shawn: Or the reception area.

Quote
Phil: (reading the list of demands that Shawn wrote for him) "My Demands, by Phil. An airplane to take me wherever I want. Tour bus, blue, with full tank of gas ... and groupies."
Shawn: That's non-negotiable.
Phil: "Five thousand dollars in unmarked bills." This is a huge list. What if they won't give me any of this stuff?
Shawn: I don't expect them to, Phil. That's just to buy us time so that we can figure out who in here has put you up to this.
Phil: "A zip-line pulley system used to transport deliciously flavored snacks and such from one location to another." What is this?

Quote
Shawn: (to Gresling) Do you recall rejecting a small business loan for a zip-line snack transportation system, calling it, and I quote, "fiscally irresponsible"?
Gus: Shawn...
Gresling: Yes, I do.
Shawn: Well, Mr. Nathanial Gresling, this little task of retrieving the Mini Oreos took me fourteen seconds. Zip-line? (makes whoosing noise) Five. Fiscally irresponsible? Nay, I call that my fiscal obligation to my shareholders, namely Gus here.

Hey swappers!

Unfortunately I come to you asking a favour. Our dear friend puzzler is in need of an Psych angel. Please let me know if any of you are able to help out.

Please only reply if you are able to craft another 5 points. Not following through on an angel swap will result in negative feedback for you. However sending an awesome angel package WILL get you a free 1 year Craftster subscription!

Any takers?

Please PM me. Thanks!!
