Details of swap:

For this swap you may either make something that is on your partner’s wists, or make something based on one of their wist items. For instance, if someone had lots of cat items on their wist then you could send them something with cats.  Or you could make something in the style of something on their wist.

Before you sign up, make sure to go through and edit your wists, taking off things you have already received. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a Wists.com account to join this swap.  You must have a minimum of 80 craftable items in your wist.  However, more than the minimum amount is strongly encouraged.  For this swap a variety of items is also strongly encouraged to make crafting easier on everyone.  
 
We’ll be using the point system for this swap.  You’ll have to send your partner 5 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
 
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:  

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks…

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf…

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse…
 
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.
 
Rules:
 
All participants must check in at least once a week by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC,  The organizer must be sent a PM when sending and receiving.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.
 
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

I'm really excited about this swap, as well.  Wist swaps are always my favorite.

Just a reminder that everyone needs to get their wists beefed up to 80 craftable items before sign-ups end, if it already isn't.

This swap is soooo tempting but there is less than a month to swap would be hard with my busy schedule.

Wow, 80 wists  :o I thought I was doing well having nearly 40 on my wist.  Better start virtual shopping for crafty items!

Post by: kwality570 on September 27, 2010 05:45:05 AM
Yeah.  80 is a lot, but it makes it a lot easier for a partner to pick out potential items to make for each other.  You can do it!!!  I'm hoping that including the links to everyone's wists by their names will make stealing wists items easier, too. :)

While I was online last night, I thought of everything I had wanted lately and just went Wisting away. I think I started at like, 5 items and I'm at 79 now aaha.

Problem is, now I'm looking at all these beautiful things and feeling bad I can't have any of them ... well, yet.  ;)

I gave up wist stalking cause It made me nervous! I found myself looking through for something that I might be able to make if I got that person!!!!! Thankfully most people's wists seemed to contain enough selection to find a couple of things!

5 Points is really easy. You can base it on money or on time. You can either have fun doing 3 smalls and 1 Med or what every you can your partner agree on.

Okay, you guys convinced me! Just sent in my questionnaire!
Also, Strawberryh, it would be pretty funny if we were paired together, due to us both having "strawberry" in our username  ;)

Extra crafting time is always gratefully recieved!
So excited to see who's wist I should be stalking and whose wish I will be able to grant!
Just a quetsion......Do you find yourself sometimes adding things to your wist that although you do pretty much have the skill to make it, you are too lazy/don't have time to and would prefer someone else to make it for you?! Maybe because it would be more special?

I do that all the time. A lot of things on there I just want and don't care who makes it. If I really wanted to make it, I usually make it for someone else. LoL!

Funny story, I had been stalking everybody's wists prior to partners being arranged, and the one wist I hadn't yet checked out turned out to be my partner haha

Anyways, I have begun the crafting process and have completed one and a half little items...here's a teaser of those for my partner...



I'm really, really enjoying this swap!
But, I'm a little confused on something....should I be asking the original creators of items on the wists for permission to re-create their idea?

Where am I supposed to buy fabric now haha?

I guess I never thought of asking the original creators about recreating their projects.  I've been part of two Wist swaps and that was never required.  I guess it might be nice?  What do you all think?

Redstar13 - I'm so glad you're happy with your partner.  I was partners with froggmomma in my last swap.  She's an excellent partner.  :)

Well, I've made something for my partner that I found in a book...and I didn't have to ask the author haha so maybe I don't have to ask the original creators. I mean, it's not like I'd be selling the product.

One item on my partners wists had a special note from the artist that requested people didn't reproduce it, which I was sad about. I was really excited about making that one.

I've never asked about reproducing things by the creators. I think that usually means no reproductions for you to sell and make a profit off of. But then again, I'm sure some people don't want you to create it at all. If you wanna do it, I won't tell. *snickers*  :)

So excitedly happy on my partner for this swap- I already have a thing or 2 planned, and will hopefully start tomorrow! I think my stash was MADE for frogmomma. :) All the OSU stuff on her wists is just calling my name! I'm a total buckeye fan :P


Hmmm... someone has no Buckeyes stuff on her wists, but that's good info....

I've not seen any of the cool bucks stuff that you have on your wist before!! But let me spill a few more beans -I am obsessed with football. Buckeyes and The New England Patriots. I'm kinda a 12 year old boy when it comes to sports...... I just discovered rugby when I was living in the UK and let me tell you - it is almost as fun as watching football.

I may need to hunt down some football related things to add to my wist!!!

I agree with you, GlinkS1063, I'm having a hard time narrowing it all down, too.  I'm thinking I'll attempt a few things and see what turns out. :)  I went and got supplies this week on my lunch from work.  I think supply shopping is one of my favorite parts of the craft swaps.  Who doesn't love a craft store?

I have 3 projects completed and will be completing the 4th either tonight or tomorrow. well with the time being after 12 I guess it is already tomorrow here. then I will send.
Sizes always confuse me because, I can't keep track of time. So by sending what I am calling 4 projects, I know I have the 5 points spread covered. I think I can keep track of time better when I craft and watch TV. Then how many shows I watch tells me time invested. But I don't do that to often.

Oho! I think I know what it might be. Let me try and solve it...

"I was thinking about making a craft item that was on redstar's wists, but yesterday morning as I was hurrying out the door to pick up groceries I saw a craft item sitting next to a craft item. I put two and two together and made an awesome craft item. Now to come up with a few more craft concoctions....."   

;D

Did I win?

On a side note - I had a pretty terrible craft mishap (very, very inaccurate measuring. really, embarrassingly  inaccurate, not sure what i was drinking when i attempted to make this item)
So, I'm going to have to go back to the start on the final item....dun dun dunnnn....
I'm going to keep my lips zipped on when I'm sending out because apparently I am 1. jinxing myself. and 2. inciting fear and panic in innocent Crafters.

No more crafting today though, it's BEAUTIFUL outside. Hope everyone else is getting this lovely weather.

Hilarious! I love crafty mad libs. Let me give it a try...

Ohmigosh! I must be WAY behind. I'll probably be sending pretty close to the deadline- a couple of things for hgddm ended up being a bit more complicated than I thought. I really hope she'll love them, though. *swap anxiety*

I am 101% sure I will love whatever you send! I just noticed that the deadline is November 15 and not the 6th as I had it written down...hmmmm, awesome! I have a medium finished and one small and a few other medium/smalls that I'm working on. I'm pretty sure there will be over-pointage sent on my part, eskimocha likes such cute things that I wanted to try and make.

Finished half of my items! Just need to buy supplies for the rest tomorrow once I get my paycheck. I hate the first of the month; I always feel so rich until my bank account is drained for rent :-\. I was REALLY hoping that I would send out a bit early, but I am not sure if that is going to happen.

Sorry for not checking in, hubbys been in the hospital with congestive heart failure.  He is out and doing better.  I'm going to try my best to ship by the 15th, if I'm late I wont be very late.  Sorry about all this but when something like this happens you just drop everything.  And for whatever reason I could not access craftster from the wifi on my Ipod Touch.

Hope everyone is doing well  :)

I finished up several small items tonight, so I think I'm done with official pointage, but I have one more thing I want to make that I think eskimocha will love. I need to have a sewing day to get a bunch of things done before deadlines get here.

Just wanted to let hgddm and everyone else know that I am still around! Huge oversight on my part- I just realized I hadn't posted for a while!  :-[
My projects are going fabulously and I REALLY hope she loves them as much as I've loved making them!
Will definitely be sending on time!

Ahh, I'm so excited to send it to you already! I have had a little set-back, just because a couple of supplies have still yet to get delivered to me, which is annoying :-\ but I do have a bunch of things already finished. Just a few more to go! I am crossing my fingers that I am able to send on time, but I guess that all depends on when the stuff gets to me. I really hope you like everything! And I am also super excited to see what you made for me ;D.

I just finished up my last item. My dad is coming in for my birthday tonight, and if I can talk him into watching the kiddos for a bit tomorrow then I'll head the the post office then. If not, then I'll do it Friday when the kiddos are back in school. Let the swap anxiety continue! :)

Just FYI, I'm busy crafting away and hope to have everything wrapped up by Saturday, though I most likely won't :-p

Also, my partner is very mean for taunting me with all of the blanks in her post

I changed my mind on what my last item was going to be, so i'll be heading to the store tonight to pick up the one little thing I need to finish. Then all i'll need to do is pack it up and mail. :)

I know it takes forever and I feel bad, but I won't be able to send yours to you, Nilmerg, until the send out date.  I had a failure on one of the projects I tried making for you.  It might have been salvageable, but I'm not going to even attempt it.  I'm going to make something else this weekend in its place.

Thats ok Kwailty, I hate when you have a failure. I also had to make a second version of one of the items I made for glink. Thankfully it was one of the one point items I was doing so no big expense of money or time involved. Let me know if you want me to have a look and put some more things on my wist (particularly if I don't have enough that fit your skills). Don't worry about the post time, I will just have to wait, I hope everyone hasn't lost interest in the gallery by the time it arrives though! I think postage security has been stepped up which means that things are taking a bit longer.
