 Do you think that Halloween goes by too fast? Would you rather have a black and orange Santa hat or a witches striped sock instead of a stocking?

Looks like there's a lot of interest by people waiting for their first swap feedback to be posted or waiting for a slot to open up. If we're coming up on the deadline and you think you might have a free slot open up within a couple days of the end sign up date (Sept 30), please let me know. If there's enough people interested I'll expand the sign-up date by a few days. **Please don't stone me those who've already submitted their info! I do this out of crafty love! :D**

Post by: mistressH on September 26, 2011 10:32:47 AM
lots of ideas brewing in my spooky mind for this one! mwahaha!

can you please clarify this for me though (its only my 3rd swap) 'spoiling is to be determined by mutual agreement by you and your partner.'

thanks :D


Title: Re: We Wish You A Spooky Christmas Swap! signups CLOSED send 11/18/11
Post by: noturavggeek on September 26, 2011 10:43:50 AM
Spoiling is anything you want to make or buy to send to your partner that is outside of the swap requirements.

So say you fulfill the swap requirements, for example you make 5 ornaments at 1 point value a piece. But then you decide to throw in a couple extra ornaments for them or decide to add Halloween or Christmas candy to the box as an added 'bonus'. That is spoiling. While it's neither encouraged nor discouraged, we don't want a person to feel slighted if they spoil their partner but are not spoiled in return.

Once partners are matched up you can decide if you want to spoil each other, you don't need to tell each other what the "spoils" are, but kind of give them an indicator so they can reciprocate or say that they are unable to spoil.

Hope that helps!

Good time at my local quilt shop - without giving away exactly what I'm doing (spoilers!) I wanted part of one item to be patchwork-ish. My quilt shop has little bags of cotton scraps and one had just about exactly the fabrics I wanted. Since it's a bit of an odd mix, I was surprised but thankful - so hoping to get that part done within the next few days. :)

We get sales but there is so little in most of the South Australian shops to begin with that the sales have very little to go after.

I'm having such a rubbish week.

And nowto top it I've failed to get supplies for my main items so I need to rethink them. Feeling rather down

2 items down so far.  I love the one that took me the longest to make so far.  I seriously need to make one for myself!!!

Crafting away over here. We lost power for a few days so we had to leave the house and stay at the in-laws so I lost a few days of crafting. i should be good now though.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye....
I'm changing the send out date to Saturday the 19th, so one more day of crafting! And it's a bit easier for some people to get to the post office on a weekend.

Happy Crafting!

Remember, you can also use store bought items to make up the 5 points. Maybe a bit of candy? Or something that can be easily altered? Feel free to PM me and we can figure it out. Don't Panic!!!! ;)
