Details of swap:
Do you have a love of Pringles and and an extra can lying around??? If so you'll love this swap!
The idea is to decorate your Pringles can and fill your can as full as you can with Crafted goodies! For this round we will be decking it out in Winter fun! No specific themes this round just pure winter enjoyment! That can include any and all winter holidays if you would like but is NOT mandatory! If you are opposed to crafting for specific holidays please be sure to note that in your questionnaire! Also if you are in the part of the world that is starting summer, feel free to join if you would like to have some holiday themed items too!!

Now the important info for this swap, please READ CAREFULLY!!
ONCE YOU GET AN APPROVAL PM PLEASE GO OUT AND GET YOUR CAN!!. Eligible cans include the original cardboard cans -or- (2) of the smaller mini versions of the cardboard can. No plastic cans please. Be sure to thoroughly clean it.

Please see this post to explain can sizes and size options:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351417.msg4102989#msg4102989

Participants can include store-bought items, but please be sure that you personally craft at least 75% of the goodies in your can! Also if you wish to send an extra can or a larger item with your can please discuss this with your partner!

You will be required to check in with your partner and post in the swap thread during the swap! I will be noting any communication issues in feedback!! There is a long crafting period so if you will be away during it just PM your partner and myself so we don't get worried!

As always, Delivery Confirmation #'s or Tracking numbers are required! If you send international, keep your receipt for verification that you sent just in case it gets lost in the mail. You are required to PM me (Slingmomma) and your partner when you send, receive and post photos in the gallery. This is imperative for receiving a positive, timely feedback.

Haha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't particularly care for them! Ohhh I was wanting to join this so bad but don't know if I can afford it! Gah! However, if I stumble upon a pringles can at someone's house before sign ups close,I will consider it destiny and dump them out into a zip lock bag and pilfer the can!

It is more then a dislike in our house I fear. My DD LOVES then But is Allergic. The company still uses Cottonseed oil and it gives her Horrific migraines. Myself and my husband just don't care for them. Since my son is home I may just have my son eat them (He'll eat anything since he is a 19 year old) But I did find an old one in my Spinning Tote with Yarn on it. I use to use them to teach Plying. But the lid is not in perfect condition. I go food shopping tomorrow so problem solved.

Just a quick organizer question.... I have just been told today that I now have a store meeting to go to on Sunday night when I was planning on doing partners. SO I wanted to give 2 options!

1)We can wait until Monday morning for partners?
or
2)We can keep signups open until 5pm EST tomorrow and then partners posted tomorrow night?

Which would you guys prefer?


Title: Re: Once You Pop Winter Fun SU Nov1-7 or until full SO Dec 13
Post by: PearlyWhirly on November 05, 2010 04:13:51 PM

the first.  I also think I have the can pretty much planned out...

Hooray for partners! I think I'm one of the few that actually likes the chips, so I'm sure between myself and my husband I will have one (and maybe a backup) in the next day or two.  :D

So many ideas! I can't wait to start! :)

I do have a question... how should we mail the can? I figured within something else, but im not sure the best way of doing it. Any advice? :)


Title: Re: Once You Pop Winter Fun SU CHANGE NOV 1-6 SO Dec 13
Post by: Slingmomma on November 08, 2010 09:16:47 AM
If you can get your hands onto a KoolAid jammers box or something along those lines you are set! They are the perfect size for the can and a little extra package around the edges just in case!

I am hoping to get almost all of my crafting done this weekend.  I have to go out of town for work from the 29th through December 11th so I'm hoping to have everything done and sent by the morning of the 29th, or ready to finish up and send out as soon as I get back.  I wonder how many crafting supplies I can fit in my suitcase and still have room for necessities (like clothes :D)

I am really excited about crafting for my partner!  Unfortunately, I have 3 swaps coming due soon, so I don't  think I'll be starting up for a while.  I have done lots of brainstorming, though!

Yay!  I've got the can decorating all planned out, and I think I have most of what I will be crafting planned out.
I can't wait to see what beefishie makes, and I hope she'll like what I make.   ;D

I'm stuck in the house, lots of snow, slick roads, no school, 3 boys (2 running fevers), my woodburner, a couple of naked gourds, lots of plain wool, and a few felting needles...We are going to have a Toy Story marathon, 1 is already in the dvd player, and craft a couple of extras to make up for sending late. I may have brought it upon myself with the theme I set for the pringles can I'm making for Crazyda79....

Just wanted to all to know I just did a huge chunk of feedback! If your partner has received your package you now have feedback! I will cross you both off the list once you both have received! And you'll all be excited to know provided the snow doesn't hold any packages hostage, we have a flake free swap!!! Everyone has now sent! How awesome is that! Some serious holiday cheer with this swap!!!

I am kinda mad at the post office.  I shipped on Monday and they were pretty busy but I PAID for the DC and they didn't even scan it!  It's still not showing in their system.  I know it's not a super expensive thing but why should I have to pay for it if they aren't even going to scan it?  I really hope the box doesn't get lost  ???

Nevermind it's finally been scanned and says the package is in transit to it's destination!!

I am so upset!!  Checking the DC# shows that the package I sent on Dec 13, has now been processed through the sort facility right near my house, 3 freaking times!!!!  I could have walked it to beeker faster than the mail is taking!!

Would there be any way to call and see what the hold up is? Its really strange that is still in your city!

According to the DC# my package is finally in the right state after a two week delay!  Good thing there isn't much Christmas themed stuff in there :)

Oh and BTW Superhooker my daughter LOVES the blanket and dolly jacket you  made me in the OWS swap  ;)

I know I was getting quite stressed out about that package.  So many things in there that I really loved and didn't want lost!

Update: It's been delivered!!! YAY!!! Now I hope that Superhooker likes everything :)
