Title: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 25 (signups closed) (send by April 11)
Post by: GatorWrangler on February 26, 2011 09:51:00 AM
In a nut shell the sweat shoppe swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 5 or 10 like items, and in return you will receive 5 or 10 different items. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice.

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 25 (SSS 25)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: to March 9
PM Organizer top picks by: March 11, 8pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: April 5
Date to send item by: April 11



Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 25

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?NO

All ages allowed? must be over 18

This next part is for me and the Mods...
Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~ Each participant will make 5 or 10 like items. For instance, 5 or 10 crocheted cloche hats (varied colors or the same it doesn't matter), or 5 sets of hand painted beads.
~ Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe discussion thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~ Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~ We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all 5 items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 5 items) or twice (for 10 items)


Please make a sample of what you are offering and post the picture on this thread before signups end so people can make their top picks list. And if you do not feel someone's offering meets swap requirements, please pm me before signups close.

yeah!!  This was the first swap I was in, and I loved it!!  (#15- 2 years ago  :D ) Then I kept missing it, and had a year off due to family things... Now I have the swapping bug again, and this just came up!  What a co-inky-dink!!

Sooooo, let me ponder what to create, and then will be back to sign up.  BTW- those necklaces are beautiful!  They will be on my short list!  ;D

Colleen, I love those necklaces!


I plan on offering 3" embroidery hoops. I haven't decided on designs yet. I was thinking little animals, flowers or maybe cute/fun phrases. I'm at work now, but I can post some example pictures tonight.

Post by: rlynn on February 26, 2011 03:02:39 PM
Hmm...I shouldn't.  I am drowning in school work.  I'll think it over.  Gah.   :D

Anyone up for a set of fun resin magnets or reusable dry food snack bags.  They would be lined in unbleached muslin so not good for ooey gooey but perfect for pretzels, nuts, chips...etc...

Anyone up for small biz card or credit card wallets ? Just real simple, but they hold a good amount of either cash and cards or just cards :)

I would love 3" embroidery hoops with little animals! I've been working on a room with the Target Love and Nature theme and a little embroidered animal would look so perfect on the wall! :)

And I have an obsession with hair items, so I vote for fabric flower hairbands!  ;D

I LOVE the ideas everyone is putting out there. Sounds like a great round, make sure to signup!!!

Here's a couple of examples of my hoops. :)

I made two of these...one for myself and one for onegroovyday.

This one was made for Belladune in the OTT hoopla swap.  I probably wouldn't go that elaborate with the french knots.

I haven't done one of these swaps yet, but sounds like tons of fun. Everyone's ideas sound fabulous.

Before I join I want to make sure my idea is liked. How about a tampon roll (similar to a crayon roll), or maybe a pouch so it can be flatter for the purse? I don't have a prototype yet, but I can make one tomorrow for show if anyone likes the idea.

goldsheepbowl, small paintings sound great. Every house needs more artistry!

imafundork... not asking for something thaaat elaborate, those knots are crazy, but animals are really awesome. I've been trolling for Animal Farm artwork, so anything pig related is especially awesome.

I missed the last round, and I can't miss another! This really is a great swap! Will have to make sample pieces of what I have in mind... and if someone has a crochet request, I'll be happy to hear it!
I love all the suggestions so far, esp the idea of a tampon pouch, I got one in a previous round, and it was perfect to hold my USB flash drives, so I could really use another one. ;D

This is such a neato swap! I could offer up either of these...or make it a total surprise!

Size of these are about .75" ...I have plain sprinkles with no letters available too.



Size of this is just over an inch wide & tall.  ;)

Here is the tampon pouch. Ruby, awesome idea about using it for flash drives! It can really be used for anything. Let me know what you think, I just made this one this morning. I decided to go with using velcro rather than ribbon, because if you're anything like me, you don't want to tie it every single time you need to use it.







Let me know what you think, I'll sign up later today if anyone likes it *crosses fingers* :)

I can't decide for this round....small change wallets, biz card wallets, or just do fused glass again ? different this time though...not images, but maybe some cool dichroic ones ? What should I do ?? ( Geez, I sound like Lebron James there )

Atsuko, I'm stressed about those pj bottoms :( I'm so afraid they're wonky and won't fit her right. Never shoulda used Lana as the guinea pig on my first pair !

Always love your glass Dawl!  I'd esp love a turquiose and red one with a black background! It's a kikaida thing.

Hehe, don't worry.  I'm sure that it will be awesome and that Lana is gonna love it.

Hmmmm, maybe I'll throw a bunch in the kiln tonight yet and see what comes out in the morning then :) If they meet with my approval I'll do fused glass. If not, then it's on to wallets of some sort LOL

I'm going to offer necklaces made from vintage and modern components (a set of 5):

*Sorry for the shoddy pictures:

The whole lot.  The white thing on the necklace closest to the left is a paper price tag, as these were made for a fair, but then I got sick. 





I can post pictures of them on to show the lengths, if desired.  All are long, (hit me at mid-chest) except the one furthest to the left and the one furthest to the right, which are a bit lower than my collarbone.

Slothoo3 ...fabric covered notebooks would be excellent! I'm always needing one to jot down something quick before my mommybrain forgets!

goldsheepbowl ...fabric headbands!

GatorWrangler... LOVE the photo pendants!

rlynn ...snack bags!

imafundork ...the sheep hoop is most excellent! I love the french knots you did for the wool on it. Did it take long to do that many?

Kitschbitch ...loving your beaded necklaces...especially the 3 on the right in the 1st photo!

TY atsuko & Dawl for the compliments!  ;)

gala_apples ...I went back & added measurements with the photos for easy reference!  :)

Kwality570 ...loving your monsters! My boy would flip over one!

Post by: nilmerg on February 27, 2011 09:57:55 PM
I'm in again too!!!! I really enjoyed the last round and I have been thinking about what to make for ages now and I came up with........
a'fill it yourself' I-spy bag.  I have a couple of small items that I will throw in but to save on postage (particularly with this new extra $9 to the usa if over 500g thing) they would come to you empty for you to fill with sand / poly beads /rice and the items of your choice. There woudl be a loop to attach your 'find it card' too. I plan to make it easy to sew up so that even a novice on a sewing machine (or even a handsewer) should be able to seal it.

Are people keen for this idea? Another one for the kids! I haven't made a prototype yet, but will knock one up over the next few days.

As for other people's ideas, here are the ones that have jumped out at me so far:

kwality570  - I love your monster paintings - woudl be a great and welcome addition to my hoopla type wall.

As would another 3" hoop  from imafundork would be amazing. Personally, I'd probably prefer a picture to a phrase.

Gatorwrangler - love pendants and your photography too, so combine the two and I'm happy!

arahj2001 - Can you make those cute little minion dudes from 'dispicable me'? It wouldn't need to be big - just 3" or 4 "?

Avesthel - Resin magnets (or pendants) would win my vote!

Sloth 003 - I always have a notebook by the computer, would love a fabric cover for them. What size notepad would you be doing? I usually use A5 or A6.

Dawl - Fused glass pendants please - I love the one I got from the last sss! I love your work.

How about...a "bath" set....1 bar of handmade soap, 1 chapstick, 1 knit washrag?  Is that enough?  too much?  Any interest?
OR
some crochet slippers (an easier pattern using less yarn than the ones I normally make).  Maybe something like this: http://thelittlehousebythesea.wordpress.com/2009/09/03/free-pattern-for-mary-jane-slippers/
I know it's not going to be winter here soon anymore...so maybe people don't need/want slippers?

Love the bath set!
Does someone want flowers like these? I found them on a french site, where everyone was raging about how beautiful they are... now I'm not really into flowers, but they make a nice spring decoration, and I find them addicting to make, so I challenged myself to make them without a pattern, just from the fotographs (not because I want to rip the designer, I don't make any profit from these, I was just interested in the construction):



I could also make the flower garland that you can see here:
http://ptepimprenelle.canalblog.com/archives/2010/12/11/19843684.html (http://ptepimprenelle.canalblog.com/archives/2010/12/11/19843684.html)

I might do color commissions on both flower things. I usually work in cotton.

Oh Ruby! The flowers are lovely! Wouldn't a garland of them be a ton of work though?  I'd love a garland in pink & green to match my craft room! Or pink & ivory to match my little girl's room! (Maybe a personal swap is in order for such a request!)

I think the garland is withing the swap size, or I wouldn't offer it. I'll make a sample garland and then I see how much time it takes. I can always make the garland longer or shorter if I think it's too much work ;D But I already did a sample blossom, and it went fast.
Hehe, I can make the sample garland in pink and green or pink and ivory, and if noone else wants garlands, we can still private swap for them ;D And of course we can private swap for the other one as well.
So, you could PM me a link to a pic that gives me an idea for shades of color, or just wait what my stash will come up with for the sample and see if it fits.

I could also make the flower garland that you can see here:

Those monster magnets are Awesome!

Here is a picture of one of the i-spy bags that I will be offering.



It is 8" square and the window is 4.5" square. It has a 2" gap at the side (where necklace is poking out) for adding in your i-spy items and rice/poly beads/sand which should be easy for anyone to seal, even a not so confident sewer. It has a loop on the bag so you can add a photo or list of the items for the child to find. The necklace will probably not be included, it was simply for illistration but I do plan to include a few i-spy items, but you will have to stuff the rest yourself.

I plan to make 5 different materials boy/girl/neutral and I'm even considering a less childlike fabric for the young at heart who fancy an amusing coffee table toy!

I will be making all these bags ahead of time, so will add them in here once they are completed. Please if you select my item, send along your top 3 picks for material choice as well as your address if gatorwrangler lets you know you have been selected!

So I will probably offer both snack bags (5) and an assortment of fun resin magnets (5).  

Here are the snack bags...I was thinking 2 of them.  Does that sound good?  Or should I include something extra?  I also have tea wallets that I could add in.  When signups are over I can post a better pic with fabric choices.


The star magnet in the middle is what I was thinking of...but I could do bottlecap resin magnets if people would prefer.  I was thinking maybe 4 of the star...


Opinions?

That bath set is amazing...as is the monsters.  The flowers are cute.  I think a set in grays and neutrals would be neato for adding to clothing I make for my daughter.  The Ispy bag is genius!!   I <3 this swap.

This looks like it's going to be a great round!  I'm going to get started on the embroidery hoops this week.  I'll do a variety of animals from Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching Motifs book. I haven't decided yet if I am going to offer 5 or 10.  I'll see where I'm at by the weekend and send in my questionnaire then. I'm thinking 10 though...too many fun offerings to choose from!  ;)

Eeep - love the green tentacled thing!

Made some flowers this morning for the garlands I'm planning on:

with my hand for size reference. Had to change the pattern for the white, cream and pink ones to five leaves, because they reminded me so much of apple blossom and sakura and those can't have six petals, it'd be like a five legged dog, right?
I kept track of the time while making these, and I think I'll offer garlands of twelve flowers, that's a nice length, can be made in an hour, and you have lots of options for color mixing.

These are a few color samples I've made. I have other colors to work with, just ask if you want a specific set of colors. You get 12 blossoms on your garland, and can combine colors any way you want, from monochrome to 12 different ones or anything in between:

Every color is cotton except silver.


I tried some color combinations for the bigger flowers.

You get three big flowers, and you can choose the colors for each of them, they don't have to be a matching set. If you want to use them individually, I suggest taking the 8-leaf version, it lies flat. The 12 leaves are meant to be joined together, so I recommend them for making a bigger flower thing (I can join them on the go if you want).

Ruby, any chance you might post the instructions for those somewhere?  My city actually hosts an "Apple Blossom Festival" each spring (which, apparently, people come from all over the world to attend, but I don't "get" that), so I would love to be able to crochet some blossoms. :)  (And they'd make a great project for my daughter and I who are somewhat "beginner" in our skills and need small projects!)

I think I should do that, because I was already worried that I might forget about how to do those... not forget entirely maybe, as they would be easy to redo, but about some detail maybe... hehe, or to remind me a few weeks later how flawed they were in the beginning ;D ;D
I'll put up the instructions in the crochet board, today or tomorrow the latest!
An Apple Blossom Festival, that sounds great! Apple Blossoms are really beautiful. Okay, people make festivals over everything, so I guess apple blossoms are one of the better excuses for it ;D

Such pretty things!   :D

I was thinking of doing something spring like with crochet flowers too, but its not a garland so I think it will be different enough.  :)   I was going to get some prototypes done today but things got unexpectedly busy and did not have time.  I hope to get them made up tomorrow and post a picture then.  If they don't work out then I have a plan B in mind.  ;)   I might even offer 5 of each.  I'm going to see how long it takes me to make the flowers since I am a bit slow at making crocheted (or knit) things.

Any one interested? I will probably make them without the bead in the center. They are adult sized, but would probably fit preteen and up. I'd have a couple colors to choose from. If you are in a cold area, they make good ear warmers.


ETA: Here are the color choices:
blue (2), variegated (1), purple (2), cream (?)


The variegated one has a different flower, all the rest will be the same.
These are all made out of wool. If you are allergic to wool, please let me know and I will make one in acrylic.

Ok, I'll be offering two different things this round.  :)  

I'm still working on the first one, but they are going to be called 'carnation clippies' and are little crocheted carnations on snap clips.   A photo is coming soon, I've got to finish making the first pair.  :)



The second one is 'jewelry extension sets'.


You get both extenders in each set.   These extenders measure approximately 2.5-2.75 inches long.  They are all sterling silver plated findings.  There are two styles, one larger one for either bracelets or larger necklaces (or maybe for a man's necklace or bracelet), and one daintier one for small chain necklaces or bracelets.  The daintier chain has a little beaded dangle on the end.  (2 gold colored and 1 clear with silver metal inside for shine).

Ok!  I got the first set finished up, so here is what the carnation clippies look like  :)




Edited to add:

Since top picks will be due before I can finish all the other clips I wanted to add here with the picture that there will be other colors available.  :)   Pending enough yarn, I've got  white & silver, blue, pink and either yellow or white.   If there is not enough yarn I may have to do a duplicate of one of the colors, but I'm hoping to have 5 different colors to try to cover all the bases for everyone.  :)

Hi everyone!  I have wanted to do this swap for awhile but have been shy I guess.  I finally have an idea of what I would want to make for you.   I have been making machine sewn felt stuffies.  I would be happy to make a custom creature/monster.  Here are 2 well loved monsters from my boys.  The one on the left is one I made for my son based on a drawing he made when he was 4.



The next one is a crazy rainboy cat I dreamed up and would be available for this swap.  I could make them in whatever colors/ shapes you wanted or even based off a kids drawing.  Anyone interested?

Ok, GatorWrangler gave the ok for me to switch out the wallet/keyfob set for the fused glass pendants.

Soooo without further ado, I'll be offering custom pendants. You can choose any image or a for a real personal feel, a photo :)

Examples below. All pendants will have a black background glass and white top layer that has the image fused into it. They'll all be approx. 1"x1".

I signed up to make 5 t-shirt scarves (pictured earlier on this thread).  I *may* upgrade to either 10 scarves or 5 scarves and 5 aprons, but I need to figure out if I have time and, more importantly, materials to make them. Both are upcycled so I can't just stock up at the fabric store.

And since I have 3 of the hats already done, I suppose I could offer 10 with color choices.  I do them in a cashmere blend yarn so they are reaaaaaally soft.  Everyone at work wants one. 

its this hat:

Ok, Here are my official offerings, 5 I-spy bags. You fill yourself, although I will be including a few little things to put in! Should be pretty easy to sew up even if you only have basic sewing skills. The loop is to attach a card showing or listing the items to be found. The bags are about 8" wide/high and have a 4.5" window.



And from the back so you can see the fabric choices better



Fabric Choices are (starting top left):
1. Snakes, Lizards and spiders on black.
2. Green tartan
3. Koalas
4. Pink with flowers and bees
5. Yellow with Ladybugs / Ladybirds

If you 'Win' one of these I-spy bags. Please PM me ASAP with your top 3 fabric choices AND your Address.

I am going to be away on holiday when the draw is done, with very little access to internet (I hope to visit an internet cafe to grab the addresses) and I will be hopefully posting while I'm on the road (if I remember to pack them!). So, Please, Please, Please make your fabric choice and send it to me with your address asap so I can get them in the post to you.

These are my Spring Shaded Dragonflies, I have five yellow and five green (all slightly different looking, due to the nature of leather vs dye). They're real leather, so obviously don't claim if you have vegan concerns. They're shown without chain, but I have gold and silver, and also black waxed leather cord, so please tell me what you'd rather after you get me.

As my second swap, this would be perfect for me. I tend to latch on to a new craft and make a ton of whatever the current addiction is before moving on.

The only problem is, which items would everyone want?

I have Vinyl Records Bowls/ Cups
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=437043) (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=437044)

I have Kid Art- These are needle felted art created by my 5yo daughter. When I asked what she wanted to do with them, she told me that she wanted to put them in picture frames and sell them or swap them.
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=437045)

I have upcycled felted wool flowers in different sizes and styles
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=437046) (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=437047)

And I have upcycled knitted hats.
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=437048)


All but the Kid Art could be customized (color, style, size). 

I have no idea which two (if any) I should offer.

I have a quick question, once the signups are closed, are the items offered listed or should I just go through the forum and make a list of the items that I would like?

Also, to clarify, I am sending out 5 (or 10) different packages, one item to each swapper, correct?

Dawl- Check out the good will or any other thrift stores. Also, if there are any yard sales in your area that might be a place to check. Or freecycle if you have that in your area.

All items being offered have to be pictured here in the thread by the time signups close so we can all take a peek and see what we want :) I make a list as I go and then of course redo it 86 times before sending it to the organizer ;)

Yep, you'll send out either 5 or 10 packages, 1 to each person who claimed the item you're offering.

I'll do that, my freecycle has nothing, I put wants on regularly for records...and for some reason I have a senior moment every time I go to the thrift shop and completely FORGET I want records...I get everything else and then some, but always forget them :(

It looks like signups will be closing early. There are already 23 out of the 25 spots full.  Because of this I have decided to up everything by one week. That means signups close Wednesday the 9th and top pick lists are due no later than March 11 at 8pm eastern. Sendouts will still be April 11.  Please let me know if this will be a problem for anyone! I hope it actually will be making it better for people.  Just make sure you are able to post your example photo offering by March 9th.

I keep a list of participants here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374066.msg4405965#msg4405965

and I plan to add links on that post to photos of the offerings.  When signups close you send me your top picks. 15 favorites if you are offering 10 items and 8 favorites if you are offering 5 items. Do not send me preferences, you will be sending those to your partners once you are matched.

And if someone's offering looks like this: "Avesthel (5/5) - 5 carnation clippies AND 5 jewelry extender sets" It means Avesthel is offering 2 separate items, so if you want one or both items you have to put them on your list separately.

If you want to save me time, you can send your top picks in this format since I have to put them in this format before matching anyway.

When offering 5 items, you send me your top 8 items in the order you like them like this.
1. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc to 8 items...

if you are offering 10 items then you pm me your top 15 items like this
1a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
1b. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2b. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc...3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b to 7a(your 15th pick)

any questions, let me know!  ;D

So far, I have a kitty and a pig, both are kind of girly.  I have plans for a puppy, hedgehog, cow, owl, other bird (whimiscal) and maybe sea creatures.  I have a cute pattern for a crab.  I think a few of them could be for a boy, but probably a younger boy.

Cool, thanks! I have 6 boys to "shop" for, all but 2 are under 5, so these sound like they should be great. The girls are easy to shop for, but the boys, they make it tough.

Hoops are added to my list :)

ALSO, thanks for doing all those links to the pictures on the first page.  That must have been a lot of work. You're spoiling us!

When offering 5 items, you send me your top 8 items in the order you like them like this.
1. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc to 8 items...

if you are offering 10 items then you pm me your top 15 items like this
1a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
1b. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2b. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3a. (YOUR NAME) NAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc...3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b to 7a(your 15th pick)

any questions, let me know!  ;D


I'm making my list right now, and I was wondering... shouldn't 15 top picks end with 8a? But as we can have more top picks anyway, it's probably easily solved...

So If you 'win' an i-spy bag, I'd be very greatful if you could get your address to me asap along with your top 3 picks for fabric choice, so I can pop them in the post Monday morning before we leave (or on the way!)

This may also mean that I'm slow to let you know that your gift has arrived too, but it will be safely held at the post office for me.

My picks are in.....So excited!

My Woodburned Monster Paintings are done. They're painted with pearlescent paint and then have an acrylic gloss over the top so they're shiny.  They're kind of hard to photograph, but you can get the idea with these photos.

ooh- It's KILLING ME that I didn't get in this.....last weekend our toilet overflowed into (of all places) MY STUDIO.  Luckily it went under our laminate, so it didn't ruin anything except having to rip up the flooring, AND I missed out on this swap.   >:( (major pouting....) I will be checking out the thread and living vicariously through you all.  Those wood burned paintings are soooo cute, as well as the magnets of the monsters, the peek-a-boo bags, photo charms, cards, etc, etc, etc....most everything was on my list!  I will be waiting impatiently for the next round.....

It's a bag filled with little goodies and then filled with rice or some other filler. You then sit and move the rice around and try to find all the items hidden in them.

I made some for my DGDs and well, yanno, the adults in the house played with them more than the kids ! I kept saying I was going to make an adult version, but never got around to it LOL

Yay.  Everybody who is receiving snack bags from me, I will have a photo of the completed bags up so you can make a list of preferences hopefully sometime tonight, but no later than tomorrow night.

The resin magnets are not made yet so I'll be sending out a PM asking for what people would prefer inside their magnets...I have a choice of glitter or sprinkles or just resin dye.  That PM will go out tonight for sure.

Hehe, they are great fun. I recently complete one for my children. Here are some photos https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=375380.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=375380.0)

And i has been so popular with my guests and friends and parents! Not just for kids! I think it would be interesting to make and 'adult' version and get things from an adult shop to fill it - a pair of plastic boobs, a condom etc.

I just realized I never explained the "green" system that this swap uses.  When you are finished crafting and ready to send you pm me and I mark your name as green on the first page.  You can only send to people who are marked as green. This system helps in case we have any flakers.

If you absolutely need to send early, like you are traveling, you can send ahead of time to people who aren't green, but if any of them flake you will be required to send to another person.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I am so excited for all the fun mail everyone will be giving & getting in the next few weeks!

Alright...Please RANK all the bag from 1 (I LOVE IT) to 9 (NOT AS MUCH).  I will do my utmost best to make sure that you get at least one of your top choices.  I cannot ensure that you will get top choices for BOTH bags but I'll try. 

Thanks!!!





Make sure you send me your address too please!

I am out of town but hope to be home this weekend. Most of the bowls/ cups are done, as well as some of the flowers. I will finish them up and be ready to send them by the 22nd. I will post pics when everything is done and ready to go.

I sent out PMs and have heard back from most (all of the Domino Pendants and all but 1 on the Purse Coordinates).  So, I will get to work tomorrow.  This is my first day of spring break so I declared it a mental health day- I have done absolutely nothing but fart around on the computer.  Ain't life grand!   ;D ;D

I have a confession to make.

I check my e-mail every 5 minutes to see if anyone has replied or posted about this swap.

I think I might be obsessed. Is that bad?

I've heard from 9/10 I'm sending to and 9/10 I'm receiving from. Not too shabby. I'm not too anxious to mail yet since my first day I can even get to the post office is Thursday. But, everything is in the envelopes (not sealed yet), but addressed. I don't think any of my people are ready to go yet anyways. I'm also trying to figure out how to make less trips to the post office with all my other swaps too. I do try to avoid that place like the plague :)

Have you looked into mailing from home? You can print postage and schedule a pickup from your regular carrier. Most of the time the postage is less expensive if you print it at home.

Might not be able to do that for international, but within the US you should be able to.

I haven't PM anyone I am sending too.  I am waiting until I am finished crafting.  I currently have 2.5/10 done.  Y'all should hear from me via PM next week sometime. :)

I pay for postage online if it's a priority mail box, but don't know how to get the right weight or size if it's not that. I used to mail the priority packages from home and put it outside my front door until some kid stole it off my patio (I'm assuming a kid because the bus stop is just outside my house and kids walk all over our yard). Anyways, that was off topic, but if I had a scale of some sort, I probably would do that  :D

I'm behind responding I know :( I have a few PMs to answer. Life here just got very hectic in the last 48 hours.

A very dear friend lost her mother early this morning...only a few hours before she gave birth to her 2nd son. It's been crazy here :( I'll get to all the PMs soon I promise !!

I'm a bit behind on replying to things, but I'm catching up this morning!

I'm also waiting until I'm done crafting to pm my recipients, so if you are getting a t-shirt scarf, don't worry!  I'm 8/10 now.  I thought I would be done but I apparently forgot how to measure and messed up a bunch of my pieces.  (note to self: 6" does not equal 8"... blarg).  So I need to pick up a couple more t-shirts.

I'll post a photo of the finished ones and take preferences. :)  You should hear from me within the next couple of days!

Everyone who still wants to change their choice of colors, please don't hesitate! I'll be making tons of these anyway!
Everyday when I check on the news about Japan, I have to take my hook and make a couple more flowers. So, no problem sneaking in some more for the swap.

Dawl, I just finished a photo for you! I have so many great pics of the kids separately & knew it would be a real challenge to find one where one child wasn't looking like a total goofball! I'm emailing you now!

I'm ready to mail everything today but one package...I think I'm waiting on someone getting back to me. 3 of you craftster lovelies already have your sweet or sparkly on it's way to you!  ;)

Everything is packaged up and addressed and now for the hard part...sending them out. Half of my packages require customs paperwork and it never fails that it takes forever to fill out and then when I get to the counter they tell me I need to fill something else out. AHHHHHHHHHH I can see this will take me at least an hour at the post office lol

Sorry for being so late to respond to you Dawl and I Sew Cute.  Crazy days lately.  Lana's first day of Spring Break was today.  And we had a farewell lunch at work so it was a crazy day of taking her to work, to the lunch, and then visiting her old school.  Wee!

Finally caught up and have all my packages packed and ready to go.  I'm mailing first thing Monday morning to all my greenies!!  :)

The most important thing is to mark the package as a Gift, so the Custom will leave it alone. Although they probably wouldn't bother about a packge with a value around 10 USD but who knows. Hehe, and avoid misleading discriptions, I once had to pick up a package at the Custom office that said "stuffed animals" and they were suspicious about whether it was a protected animal - and we had a good laugh when it turned out to be stuffies ;D

I will definantly be going to the post office on Thursday so if you turn green by tomorrow night, or maybe Thursday morning, then you'll be included in there.

So far I have 5 envelopes with this swap ready to go, and 2 boxes from 2 other swaps. I think it might be a long trip at the post office.

T-shirt scarves are finally done!  Posting a photo here, will be pm-ing all yous getting them for preferences and address info momentarily. (I have posted 10, but I have materials for near-duplicates of some of them, so I might be able to accommodate preferences better).

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=441536)

(photo's kinda big, so just posting the link).

Edited to add: #9 is all neutrals... greys and cream.  It looks more blue in the photo I think, but it's not.   Due to a happy hoodie find, #10 has functioning pocket!  I can make a second #10 if necessary. :)

I was at the post office today to send to sweetyetevil and Crafty.Canadian, and because my post lady loves our swaps, she asked to see the flowers, and by that, I realized that I had packed one for Crafty.Canadian that didn't include white, but off-white. Aargh! Glad I noticed in time, but still, aargh ;D ;D
Note to self: Pack up stuff in daylight!
So I'll send that one on Monday... and gala_apples, by then your batch will have dried from my attempt at starching, and I'll see if I'll starch them some more or send them.

Grrr rI wanted t osend out everyone who was green this week but I had a fiasco at my house. The furnace decided to take a dive on me and if you are familiar with Michigan at all it is still freaking cold here!!! Got them coming over to finish the job today and if I can get to the post office beofre it closes the green light people will be going out. If not, on Monday my trek to the Post office will happen. Hope everyone has a good weekend!

That was everyone who was showing up green for me this morning.  The rest of them are all packed up, addressed, and ready to go!  Woo!  (Hopefully shipping doesn't take too dreadfully long, it always seems so slow from Newfoundland).

You're crazy! You should have just sent them, I probably wouldn't have noticed!  (But man, I am lucky to be receiving from someone who is so considerate and has such an eye for detail!)

I must have looked at these flowers many times and never realized one was different (because it turned out I had grouped them together long ago), but it's one of these things that you can't unsee once you've noticed them. :D It would have bothered me forever! ;D

I am finally ready to ship. It shouldn't have taken me so long, as I had most of the headbands done before signups closed. I made another cream one. 4 out of 5 people picked cream as their fist pick and blue as their second. Actually everyone picked blue as their second pick. I find that funny. No one picked the variegated one, so I will hold on to it, for now.

I'm lazy and only wanted to go to the post office once so I waited until everyone was green.  Now I'm going to end up going twice anyway.  Oh well. :)

Hear Hear!!! I've made it my new year's resolution to get swap packages sent as soon as I possibly can. So far so good, but then again...there's the Tudor swap which they've pushed the send out date back just a tad for someone who will remain nameless because she begged for more crafting time. LOL!

I sent all of my pkgs off today.  It will take me a little time to sort out the DC and customs numbers but I have to run to class so it will probably be tomorrow (today is DH bday).  I was a bit rushed packing up so I didn't include a note, I sincerely hope all of the recipients like what I made.

Ruby - I've received your garlands & extra flowers! I'm going to post photos later today. I've been fighting a terrible cold & bronchitis & haven't felt up to it until today. The flowers are so beautiful! I will be shipping your package this week, as I'm wrapping up finishing your surprises! I wasn't able to work with resin last week because of the bronchitis, but I'm much better now!  :)

Unfortunately we still have some items that need to be received.  I'm going to have to make a deadline.  I'm going to give the packages until May 21st to be received. If they are not received by then, a replacement package will have to be sent by May 25th. I hope they all arrive soon!

Argh, I just realized that this is another of those cursed Canada-down under mailings... you wouldn't believe the trouble we've had in another swap with Canada to NZ, the first package took three months, the second never arrived... while the angel package from the US to NZ only took a few days... Canadian post is mysterious... plus, they're currently on strike (I have a package in transit to Canada right now in another swap, and we're preparing for a long wait... sigh...)

We've been waiting nearly two months for a package to arrive from Canada to New Zealand in a swap that I'm organizing.  It's so frustrating.   >:(

The last package in the current round should be received soon, so I started a round 26 discussion thread. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=383250.0)
