Welcome to the Pokemon Swap Round 3!!


For anyone with a love of Pokemon; whether you play the games, you watch the anime or just try to catch 'em all! Whether you love the original 150 or Prefer later generations, this swap is for you! If you have a passion for pikachu or go crazy for Chimchar, join in and get chatting with some like minded Pokemon fans! All skill levels are welcome whatever your craft is  :)
This will be a 6 point swap based on the following guidelines:
Large = 3 pts, medium = 2 pts, small = 1 pt. Below are the guidelines for item size.

By Time
Large = 3 or more hours
Medium = 2 or more hours
Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
Large = $30 or more
Medium = $10-$30 dollars
Small = $10 or less

My suggestion is to make 1 large, 1 medium and 1 small but really it is up to the discretion of the partners.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

oooh...I'm bookmarking this.....

Have to see if I'd have time esp with BroCon coming up the weekend partners are assigned....
Temptations!!

Looks like a really cool swap :D

(Yes, a six point swap is kind of daunting although.)

Hmmm...

I think I need to join this! I've bookmarked and will be back after work :D

I am absolutely a fan of the first 151 pokemon. There's a couple other neat ones, but those are my favorites.

Glad to see there's some interest!  :) And Yes I think 6 points can be kind of daunting, but think of all the amazing pokemon related items that can be created when you have 6 points to play with!

I'm all signed up. :D

I'm just waiting on feedback from my previous swap. Things are slowly arriving at their new homes of my 8 partners, so I should be getting feedback soon. I think I'm only waiting on one or two more to receive.

Hmm... I think I might have to do this. I'm a little leery about a 6 point swap right now (OTT swaps, awwwwyeah), but I'll be really angry if I don't do this.. besides, who knows when the next Pokemon swap will be?!

I have three swaps that end or have ended between this week and next.  As soon as feedback clears up a space, I'm signing up for Pokemon goodness for my seven year old son.

And here I was, trying to cut down on swapping...I'm not sure I can resist this though, I already know exactly what I'm going to make. (Hopefully my partner approves :P)

I made my costume for anime expo this weekend!  Comic con scares me. 1) The amount of people who shows up is CRAZY! and 2) Twilight people are SCARY!

Really? I want to go as Tank Girl, but I don't even have a ticket and I haven't started the costume. Last year I dressed up as a zombie and just walked in without paying. I might resort to that this year again too.

I'll add it onto your questionnaire. I hate zubat as well. Every time you go in a cave you know what it's gonna be...

1 Small thing: Can everyone who has sent in a questionnaire message me and tell me their country? No one has put it on their form! I'm from the UK and so I find US/Canada address a little confusing, I wouldn't want to make a mistake! Please anyone thinking about sending a questionnaire in make sure that the country is on it!! Thanks  ;)

US for me!  I think UK's address is confusing!  My bff moved to England and when I send her Xmas gifts, I have to double check the address to make sure I put it on right.

Yeah I hate Zubat too...I stuck that I dislike rock type pokemons.  Geodudes...because of the caves too!!!

I put it on mine but it's USA in case you missed it. Ugh my 8th partner needs to hurry and say she got my stuff so I can get feedback. She's the last one and she hasn't logged in since the day after the swap ended.

Yay!   My son is going to go NUTS for this...but I think I will save all of the goodies for his birthday coming up.

I will send in my questionnaire after I find out his faves and not faves...he LOVES talking Pokemon so that shouldn't peak his interest too much.

So excited!!!   ;D

omg I used to work with kids who were pokemaniacs. They are so cute! I used to work at Toys R Us in New York and everybody there had pokemon and would play each other. You sit down in the break room and turn on your ds, and all these heads go up "Whose playing pokemon!!!???"

I have a fondness for Geodude, and Onyix (maybe its my mad crush on Broc ^_^) But most steel pokemon annoy the crap out of me.

My kiddo loves this pokoman stuff. The video game is off limits, too violent, but he collects the cards and tracing books and stickers and he's always talking to me about it (even though I have no idea what he's saying!). I'm sure he'd love getting something in the mail and I can craft anything, stuffies particularly, but... 6 points? Aiy, I think I'll wait for a smaller swap myself. 6 is HUGE.

I've never actually considered 6 points a big swap. Perhaps this is just me, I've never done a OTT swap I'd probably find that quite hard! A fair amount of swaps I've done in the past have been 7/8 points (Twilight ones get a little insane!) so this one seems quite average... Also I have a tendancy to spoil my partner!  ;)

We still have quite awhile until sign ups end but I'm hoping my partner gets back to me and lets me know she got my items so that I can get feedback. She hasn't logged in since the 27th and that swap ended on the 26th. :| I'm starting to worry, but hopefully she's just being slow and will get back to us before the 15th. :| I really don't want to have to wait until the next round.

Have you got photos that you can post up of the items you sent and then the organiser can give you feedback as you have sent your stuff?

Hooray, I've been added to the swap! Hi, everyone! Did anyone else get the Pokemon theme stuck in their head... over and over and over? I can't help it, every time I think about crafting I end up humming it.

For cross stitchers like me, here's a good resource: http://cid-adef20f4b8282822.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/.Public/Littlemojo|4s%20Pokemon%20patterns?view=details It's tons of pokemon sprite patterns.

And if you're feeling particularly epic, here's the EPIC POKEMON PATTERN: http://www.spritestitch.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=403 . It's about a billion stitches, but cross-stitchers are crazy like that.

Sprite Stitch has a ton of video game patterns, so yay! Here you go.

Pokemon Bento Boxes! I don't know which one is my favourite... :D I don't think I could nom them though, just too cute!

Not long until partners now! Sign-ups have slowed a little, perhaps we will get a flurry again next week. Just to let everyone know, I'm away this weekend and I'm not totally sure of the access that I will have to the internet. I'm off tomorrow then back on Monday so will be able to process any applications over the weekends then. It's pretty much my only break this summer!

Well, I've got to sign up. Has anyone else been following the sneak peeks of the new Pokemon for Black & White (the new DS games)? I'd be down with including them in the swap, and I already love one or two of them... ahh I'll just list them anyway in my sign-up, and then list an alternative for anyone not familiar  ;D

I'm already in love with several of the new Pokemon too. Especially the pigeon. It has so much sentimental value that I almost cried when I saw it. It feels like proof that people really do go somewhere else where they can watch over you when they pass on and send you random signs. I JUST got back into collecting and all of a sudden they release a pigeon. My step dad raised pigeons. He passed away 9 years ago. So it's like it's a sign or something. lol I dunno I'm weird.

But I love that one and the new starters. Also the chinchilla and the gear is cute too.

Here are some useful links about the swap rules/guidance on swapping. Have a read through these and then if you've got any more questions ask on here or send me a PM. We'd love to have you on this swap!

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.0 - Swap FAQ
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0 - Swap hints and tips

I hope these will be useful for you!

Thank you for the links, but I've looked over them before. It mentions the point system, but it doesn't explain them. The first page lists different things for each size/point amount, like time, material, and what it actually is. So I don't understand how each adds up the points for the swap. Like...say I were to make a shirt and it takes me less than an hour [by magic, of course ;3], it lists a shirt as a Large/3pts and under 2hours as Small/1pt. How does that add up in terms of the 6 points?

How does that add up in terms of the 6 points?

I'm not an authority on this at all, but I would base it on the time more than anything else. To me, a small in size item like a wallet can classify as a large item if you construct/embellish it well (where the time element comes in), and make sure its something they will really love. So for me its decided by time and how well it fits the persons tastes as best I can tell. Maybe other people view it differently, but that's how I usually decide my points, but when I'm in doubt i round the points down :] Just figured I'd add my 2 cents...

Like Lola I would base it on time more than anything else if it's taken you hours and hours then it's a large. The point system is a bit about using your own judegemnt. For some people making a bag might only take them an hour but for others longer. I understand that it's a bit confusing and in all honesty I've found the way to get to grips with it is just to start making things, as it's often a lot clearer how many points an item is worth once you've got it in front of you! Is this helping? Feel free to PM me!

I hate to admit it but... I've never finished a pokemon game.  :-\ I'ved played red, blue, yellow, platinum, emerald, and now heart gold- not to mention the game cube battle stadium thing. I just get to a certain amount of hours and lose interest!

But I love them soooo much! Maybe I'm too nervous about battling the Elite Four.

They aren't that bad. The key is lots of revives and super/hyper potions! And save before you go in so if you die you can just try again!

I feel the same! When I play the game I only end up having tough nasty looking ones because they tend to be stronger. I mean I hate ghost pokemon but your gonna get quite far with a strong Gengar... If this was real life there's no way I would have anything that's not cute!  ;)

I always get a Pidgeotto... even though he's a basic pokemon he's one of my most powerful. He was always in my party. And I use Gastly a lot too. I think my favorite episode from the anime was the one where Gastly pretended to be a maiden ghost and kidnapped Broc and James. <3 them both.

Gengar is pretty awesome. And Haunter... when someone pulls him out in a battle I get scared. He's very hard to beat.

Can anyone explain how to get my Pichu to evolve? I read online that he has to be 'happy'. How do I make it happy?

Post by: saucyimp on July 25, 2010 11:38:44 PM
It's interesting you all think Gengar is cute. Personally, I find Misdreavus, Mismagius, and Duskull very cute ghost pokemon. I have recently actually gone with one pokemon over another based on cuteness. Specifically, I opted for Misdreavus on my team over Spiritomb. We'll see how long I last before I regret that one!

I have to say I am surprised by the lack of chatter on this one, I would have thought Pokemon would have been a great excuse for many many postings! I'm going good, medium and small finished, another medium started and another small started. How about everyone else?

Hey all -- I guess I'm terrible at this whole 'message board' thing. :D

I'm a terrible procrastinator, so it's actually kind of a wonder I've started at all! But I've got a big creative project in my swap, so I knew I had to start early. And what better way to start than a trip to Opus?! Yeah, it's no craft store, but it makes me feel creative just going there.

As for me, I'm about 1/2 done my large craft (and it's large... I don't know how I'm going to ship it). There's also a small craft in the works but I haven't started, and also a medium craft that's small in size but also a bit of effort. I think that's good, eh?

Though really, even though my crafts seem small and don't cost a lot of money, they take me FOREVER to do. Three hours on one craft? I can totally blow that one out of the water!

i remember that one! man i wish the original series of pokemon was available to buy as a box set in the UK  :'( i own so many classic series from my childhood but there is a big pokemon shaped hole in my collection

also, apologies to my partner, our organiser and everyone in this thread, i haven't been getting notifications when somebody replies here for some reason and due to my extreme business, didn't think to question why the thread had seemed so quiet   :-[  hopefully this will entertain some of y'all- although it really should come with a seizure warning or something, it's hella trippy!!

forgot to add- i'm almost finished all of my items  ;D i've been crafting away, even though i haven't been chatting! there's still quite a lot of work to do- i've finished all the components, but now i need to put them all together (i hope that's not giving too much away!) i'm looking to send this friday or saturday  ;D

and as for my favourite pokemon, i always start with the water type, and cannot wait for black and white to come out for that reason, the little sea otter guy is so freaking cute! i do tend to choose cute pokemon over big scary ones, which means i'm not a very strong pokemon trainer! my current party in heartgold consists of vulpix, stantler, noctowl, croconaw, flaafy, and gastly, which is actually pretty sensible of me- it really pained me when i had to get rid of hoppip and bring in kangaskhan in order to defeat the second and third gym leaders, i just have to have pretty pokemon  :D my finance's soulsilver team is made up of pokemon like weepinbell, beedrill and voltorb, but that probably explains why he's ahead of me by a couple of badges   :-\ !

Whats with Shiny pokemon? I never got it. They aren't stronger are they?

Sorry! I'm still here!

I actually made a small in a fit today. Ever have one of those days where life is kinda just like "FU!"

I ripped my bumper and left headlight off by running into a pillar in my carpool at my apartment; boyfriend had a severely sprained ankle (like we thought it was broke bad); laptop is broken so it's a desktop or if it's unplus it takes ~5 minutes to die; phone keeps glitching; I'll probably be fired at work so they can have just 3 people, not 5; DVD player broke; school starting again...  :-\ Just one thing after another!
Sorry, mini-rant... Feel better now...

My boyfriend had this really even/complex team for his Heartgold team. Me? I was like "... I like this one!" So it was like Gengar... And a couple others... And I think I accidently left my DS at my house and my sister packed it up/lost it!  :'( I miss it...

Sorry to hear about the bad time your having TwistedTruth. Things can only get better from here though right?

My party on Platinum is Empoleon, Girantina, Rapidash, Luxray, Gravler and Roserade. It's pretty much the first time I've had a vaguely even spread across the board.

I'm still working on my first one but it's a large. I've been super busy this week but I've dedicated today completely to working on my swap stuff. I hope to get my first large done today and my second one started. (The second item is something that could probably be considered a large but I think it's a medium.) Thank god I've got Shark Week to keep me company! :)

Ooo sounds exciting! Anywhere nice? I wish I could go away somewhere but having just graduated all I have is debt debt debt. (and swaps  ;) )

We are going to a small town in upstate NY to see my husband's grandmother.  It's a long drive and with three kids, should be very interesting!   8)  We are stopping at the Corning Glass Museum though, which I am excited about.  Everyone, except my 11 month old, has reservations to do some kind of glasswork. My five year old and I are doing glassblowing for the first time.  So excited!

oooo! We live in NYC and I've always wanted to learn glassblowing. Maybe I should go upstate to visit the grandmother and maybe stop by this place. Where is it?

It's in Corning, NY.  We are leaving Monday from Baltimore, MD and going up to Buffalo (for the infamous Anchor Bar), then to where we are staying in Auburn (by the wine trail, woo hoo), and then to Corning on Tuesday.  They have an amazing museum and offer mini sessions where you can do lampwork beads, fused glass, sandblasting and glass blowing.  It's all reasonable too, and I'm super psyched that they let people of all ages do some of it.  I can't wait to see my daughter do the blown glass.  She's doing an ornament, I'm doing a flower.  My hubby is doing a pendant for me.  He should have surprised me, but I'm still soooo excited to have something like that from him.  He's so not crafty.   ;D ;D ;D

That sounds like a lot of fun! And I know what you mean. My husband is completely tone deaf. He always asks me "Whats this song?" And he tries to sing it... so not what he is singing! But I love it when he does. ^_^

lol, I tease my hubby about his singing.  It's sometimes nice when the ipod plays something he doesn't know the words to.  Otherwise, i feel like I'm in the car with an American Idol contestant.   ;D

Don't worry about it! I've got a package for another swap that I've been trying to post since Wednesday but work commitments mean I haven't been able to. It's just frustrating!

I just made the most awesome small. I want it!!!
My parents have been away for 3 weeks and come back this weekend so tonight was meant to be a tidy up night. But a bad day at work led to chocolate, CSI and crafting. My favourite Cs!!

I saw that on Geekologie blog! It was super neat. Has anyone else heard of the theory of the tv show that Ash is actually in a coma and the whole show is what his mind is doing while in said coma? It's pretty interesting. That's why all the police and nurses look the same in every town, and why he never ages and etc. It seems pretty farfetched but also interesting how you could read so much into a kids tv show. This was the best link I could find.
