Title: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 27 (signup CLOSED, green by 12/1, sendout by 12/5)
Post by: GatorWrangler on November 03, 2011 04:36:04 PM
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 27 (SSS 27)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: Nov 3 to Nov 14
PM Organizer top picks by: Nov 16, 6pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: Dec 1
Date to send item by: Dec 5




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.
...

I also need your help to decide, would anyone be interested in a set of 2 co-ordinating scrappy mug rugs? I'll probably theme them by colour - so red, blue, purple, natural or Black and white etc.

I had a blast last round. Sending in my questionnaire right now. I am thinking of doing paracord survival bracelets. Heres an example:

I have a couple colors. Would anyone be interested? If nobody is interested in these, I will do some feather earrings. If there is interest, I might do these and feather earrings. I wish I did 10 items last time, since there was so much great stuff!

I like the paracord bracelets. Personally I'd probably go for them before dangly earings, but that is just my preferance.

Uh oh, I might be in trouble.  I started watching this thread just for the ideas... but I'm so very tempted to join in!  I'll have to see if I actually have the crafting time :)

Oh!  I could make crocheted or tatted lace snowflakes/ornaments!  Then I'd have an excuse to make lots of the same pattern :)  So tempted... Once I get back in town, I'll compare the calendar to the ToDo and ToCraft list and see if there's any space.

I haven't figured out what I'm doing for the second set, but my first will be Gradient Necklaces. This is my example, I'll most likely make a blue one, blue tends to be a favourite colour. (And when I have the clasp attached I'll post an action shot so you can see size.) If there's a colour you reaaaally want, lemme know. :)

Squee...I forgot I didn't actually post in this thread when I signed up so I wasn't getting any updates when I hit "replies to your post"...there is so much great stuff to look at now.  :D

Here are the photos of what I will be offering.

Scrappy Accessory (your choice of scrappy cuff or scrappy flower brooch)  


AND

owl stuffie ornament. (okay, so this one was made as a weird snap on accessory for a stuffie but I will be using the same tutorial to make the ornaments except you know...I'll add a little string at top so the owl can be hung on a tree.  Or I can leave it off if you prefer just a little stuffie).  


I am thinking I will make the owls in advance, but I am thinking it would be best to wait to make the cuffs/brooches.   1. I don't which people would prefer and 2. I'd like to get somewhat close to people's color preferences (though I cannot promise favorite colors; I will do my best to avoid colors you hate)...not to mention wrist size if they choose cuff.

You can commission the size. I'll try to get some hats premade, but I'll also take color, animal or size commissions. I must be out of my mind ;D
Ah, love the owl stuffie. Mug rugs, please, please, please!
And gala_apples, blue sounds great, I also love green.

Lately I've been getting my craft back on and I am loving this swap.  I have always liked this swap (I participated in the very early ones:  Rounds 2, 3 4, etc back in the day).  I would love to join in and I'm liking a knitted dish/wash cloth.  Each person would get (2) cloths - random, complimentary colors.

I found a free pattern on Ivory's Little House in the Suburbs blog and would use it.  It's called "A Very Seedy Dishcloth".  These cloths are great for your face and body too:

ooak_diva, I personally would love some knit towels.  I LOVE the few that I do have.  I totally prefer them over store bought. 

Thanks rlynn, it feels good to be back and crafting again. 

bec99, I luv your offering, I need to get motivated for the Holidays.

I'm hoping to join this swap and would like to offer something like this:

these weren't made by me but mine will be on a roach clip and have feathers attached to cords. i might put on more beads than that and maybe a charm if i can find something interesting. i'll try and take color requests depending on what kind of feathers i can find in town. each person will receive a feathered hair clip and a secondary surprise creation just for fun that i haven't decided on yet. just found out about the swap a few minutes ago so haven't thought too much yet. just know it will be fun and not too heavy a load.
The good old days. I remember making these when we were kids. Where are you finding them already made?

I don't see a problem with two people offering the same things, because I really wouldn't mind getting two things that I really like!
Wasn't there an offer of another seet of little hooplas too? *hint hint*
And two people thinking about the same kind of pendants? I don't see enough jewellery in this swap yet *hint hint*

@angelxwing, could you do color commissions if you do roses? I have some amigurumi that I could give those roses as accessories, but they'd have to have the right color. And how many roses would you make per offer?

umm it depends on what colors i have. And im still thinking if i should do 10 roses or 5 :/

but you can show me the colors that you need and i can see if i could match it up to yours! :)

So I found a way to make the cuffs and get around potential size variations in wrist size.  I'm making them fairly long (roughly 8.5 inches) and leaving the button off until I get assigned my partners.  Then I can trim them down if needed and add the button.   I am making a ton of them so people can choose the one they would like.  If a person ends up needing more length in her cuff or would really like a particular color scheme (and I have the fabric to accommodate) we can talk customizations at that point.  I have about 4 made now.  I will probably whip up the owls tonight.  I'll probably make a lot of those as well to give people room to get one they really like.

Post by: greybird on November 06, 2011 02:03:14 PM
Ok, here are pics of what I am offering.



"Silvery Sets" -  (5) -  A set of one silvery necklace with one silvery/pearlescent magnet.    :)

All the necklaces are on a black satin cord with sliding knots so the length is adjustable to a wide range of sizes (short to long).   There are rings hanging on either side of the main focal pendant/bead and these rings are sterling silver plated.  The focal beads/pendants are just silver colored metal as far as I know.  

What the rings look like while hanging:


The choices available - I have two skulls like number 1, two skulls like number 2 and 1 focal bead like number 3.  


And you also get one silvery magnet with each necklace.  :)  That way you can have a little something if you decide these would be better as a gift for your teen.  ;)  

This is what they look like:


And this is a closeup of the silvery/pearlescent sheen on the paper I used:


They are 1 inch in diameter.  



Origami Pouches - (5)



I will update this thread when all 5 pouches are complete so you can see the fabric color/choices.   This is a cool little bag!   :D   Not only is it a little drawstring pouch with a ribbon handle, but it also has 4 little pockets (2 per side) on the outside!   You can see in the inset photo a hook in each of the pockets on one side of the bag.   The ribbon ends have had fray check applied so they won't fray.  Also, there are actually two ribbon handles (one on each side) even though only one is visible in the photo.  

All the finished pouches!   :)   There are 2 penguins, 1 each of red, teal, gold.  



The teal bag is the smallest at 5.5" wide by 6" tall.  The others are slightly larger ranging from 6.5"-7" wide and tall.  



I hope you all like them!   :)

Thanks, everyone!   :D

Kayrun, good catch!  I forgot to mention that.  The bag in the photo is approx 5.5 inches wide and 6 inches tall.  This was my first one and it came out a little smaller than I was thinking so the other 4 will probably be a little larger.  I'm thinking 7-8 inches square roughly.  I'll put the measurements in my final update to the photo post when I've made the rest.   :)

Aw, man!  I was going to join and offer something resin, or maybe some tatted ornaments, but both those things have been mentioned by others.  Maybe I ought to wait this one out.  Will that be too much resin/ tatted ornaments? 

P.S.  Last year, wasn't there a ornament type swap like this one?  GatorWrangler, did you host that and if so will there be a round of it this year?  I thought it looked great last year, but I was too chicken to join.  I had only done one swap at that time.

Two people offering the same/similar thing is never a problem in my opinion.   ;D   That's just more to go around or a chance to get two lovelies!   :D  Also, even if they are very similar, chances are they will still be different enough (color, size, etc) that it gives more options as to which color/size etc best suits their needs.   :)

Also, ornaments would be a great offering for this swap!   Just saying!    ;)   ;D

I have about 7 cuffs ready to be trimmed to size.  I also have 7 owls; most of them are in shades of blue, some reds, some pink.  I am going to pick up some fat quarters in traditional Christmas colors though in case someone really wants a Christmas-y owl.  Also, I am not adding strings to their heads until I find out if people want them to be ornaments or little shelf owls.  People should have plenty to choose from so they get one they really like.  I am going to switch gears and whip up some flower brooches now.

They are super cute. Are the headbands adult or child size?

rylnn - you are a craft making machine! You are very generous giving folks such a choice.

They can be either.  I am going to add the the headband section to the pinwheels last so that folks can decide which size they would like.

Both sound great! But please keep in mind that you might have to send internationally, too. Wouldn't want you to regret offering the cups when I would get one (although I'd probably settle for a replacement tea towel in that case).

I just signed up,... if I made it.  My offerings are 5 wildflower resin pendants and 5 tatted flower bookmarks.  I am going to try to go get pictures NOW, so I can be posting them sometime tonight, so at least people who have signed up can have a day to look and decide if its going on their 'shoppe'ing list.   ;D

Sounds great, kimchery!
Ah, the beanies are up - love the grey ones!
Aw, those journals!

I tried to take pictures of the lace cuffs I'll offer, but my replacement camery isn't very good... this is one example of the cuffs, they're one half of a Luna Lovegood Scarf and you get a pair of them. I can make them in cotton in all kinds of colors and size you want to. They're not overly intricate, but might go well with a Luna Lovegood scarf if you have one.


And this is the second offer. I'm sorry for those who wanted animal hats, but I got stuck with the prototyping and had to change the offer. I'll now offer 5 bracelets in broomstick lace (that is, you get one, but not this one, because it's mine ;D).

Again, I'll do color and size commissions. Also, if you claim one offer but would rather have the other, I can change that too.

More examples (note to self: the cuffs need blocking):


I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow!

You send me your top picks list anytime between now and Nov 16 at 6pm eastern but no later.

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: "rlynn (5/5) - 5 scrappy accessory AND 5 owl stuffie ornament" It means rlynn 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, 7a, 7b, to 8a(your 15th pick)

I must receive all top pick lists no later than Nov 16 at 6pm eastern

I updated the participant list with all images I could find of the items being offered. Please let me know if I missed yours. And if you don't have one yet, please post it as soon as possible. It should be posted no later than tomorrow night which was the original date of signups ending . It just needs to be a photo or link of an example of your item.

Also, everyone please check the list to make sure your offerings are listed correctly. Thanks!

Ok i'm kind of retarded at this since this is still my 2nd swap ever but in this format do we keep doing them until we get to 15a and 15b which is a total of 30 picks all together or do we do them until there are 15 all together but labeled in this format would end on 8a i believe?  sorry just don't want you to have to re-do it :P

You do that format until you hit 8a. I used to ask people offering 10 items to send me a list of 13 top picks which is why it went to only 7a and I never fixed it. I only updated the other numbers.

So, my paracord supplier is being not very nice. I have been waiting over 3 weeks for my order, and hope it gets here soon. If not, I am trying to find something local so I can have a better color selection, because I don't have a whole lot right now. I am able to make one or two color bracelets.

Currently, the colors I have available for paracord bracelets are:
Olive drab green (sounds...drab...but it is the "military" kinda green color. Not flashy, but very practical)
Medium brown
Yellow
Yellow/Green mix ( very bright, neon color)
Pink "camo" - pink, with black and purple bits woven in
Purple "camo"- purple, white, and black camo style
"Desert camo"- neutral khaki base with black/brown bits
Rainbow- more of an orange base, with rainbow flecks

If nothing else, I am trying to get at least black,blue,red, and white for some basic colors, and I will post as soon as I get these!

*edit* I will also have sky blue, red, pink multicolor ( grey and white flecks,but primarily pink) and  black

(butterfly, dragon, fan, heart, leaf/holly, clover)

You will get two bookmarks of your choice + a miniature surprise.  The motifs are 1-2" and the entire bookmark will be 7-9" long, ending with a tassel (unless requested otherwise).  I also have thread in black and navy, and may post a couple more style options.  Other things I can do on request: extend tail on dragon (upright, instead of flying), add red berries to holly, add body to butterfly, etc - ask.

After much craziness tonight with my newly de-virused computer, I had lots of trouble uploading pics. After describing this trouble to GatorWrangler, she suggested something that made the whole process much easier (oh, how I wish I had known before!) Anyhoo..... Here are the resin pendants.

They are just cast so far.  I still have to polish,... well, most of them that are pictured, and drill.
The tatted flower bookmarks are like the one to the right in this picture.

I could do them in any of the colors listed below, and there will be a similar polymer clay bead at the tail.
Colors: Natural, Red, Hunter Green, Sage Green, Royal Blue, Deep Purple, Peach, Bubble Gum Pink, Black, Nature Multi, Pastel Multi, Rainbow, Blue/White Multi, and Monet Multi (pictured)

I'm having camera issues (I think the batteries are failing, bc it keeps turning off...)anyway, I found a pix that is similar to what I am offering...

these are the hand warmers- they are rice filled, cotton cloth- I will have different patterns.  You will get a set, just like pictured.  They are the perfect size to slip in your mittens, or pockets.   :)


***I wanted to modify this- the ones pictured aren't the ones I'll be shipping- they will have different patterns, and look a bit more finished- I just couldn't get photos of mine up by the deadline.  I will post pix and you can choose patterns when I'm done.***

So, I've been trying to add pics for about an hour now... why are computers always ornery when you're on a deadline?  LOL

Here goes, hoping it works!

Scrabble tile pendants.  I will add the dimensional glaze to the top but I was afraid it wouldn't dry in time to post pics and be clear.  There's blue, green, red, green butterfly and brown swirls




Here are the dish mats, I hope you can see the prints.  I haven't quilted them yet just wanted ya'll to get a peek so you could make a request.  They will be nice and neat when done!  :)





Hope you see something you like!

Love the dish mats, they were on my top picks list before I even had seen the pics, but now I like them even more ;D
I was thinking about picking the rice packs too, because somehow, the idea of having someone pay for shipping rice doesn't seem right.
Also, for the same reason, I didn't claim a cappucino cup, but texscapper, those towels are lovely! Straight on my list!
Really hard to narrow it down, so many great offerings!

I was thinking about picking the rice packs too, because somehow, the idea of having someone pay for shipping rice doesn't seem right.

hmmm- I didn't think there'd be a problem with shipping it, now you make me wonder.  I've sent them as gifts before.  Does anyone know if it will be a concern?

I am not totally sure but in a previous round I know that I shipped two of the same item to someone, but I'm sure whether or not you get two of the same item depends on its popularity and how many the person is offering to begin with.  :D

Thanks, rlynn.  I know that just because I ask for more than one, doesn't mean I will get that many, but I didn't wanna break any rules.  ;-) There is so much great stuff!  I keep thinking "that would be a great gift for ___, but I want one too" LOL

It is not a problem sending it but I think she was referring to paying shipping on sending rice as it a cost factor. ;)

Yes, I was thinking about how if I see an airplane in the sky, I don't want to think it's burning all the kerosene because of a handful rice from the US (that was perhaps previously imported from somewhere else...). I'm cool with sending swap packages as such because I think they're one of the best uses you can make of international mail, with all the friendly and positive vibes that get sent along. But I don't have to choose the rice pack in a Sweat Shoppe Swap. Although it's really cute :)

Hehe, and no open rice to Australia or NZ. I heard the custom controls there have BIG flamethrowers for organic material they find in the mail ;D

OK, sent in my top picks list. That discussion about choosing the same items twice has confused me. I never thought of that, and I was very tempted to pick some favourite items twice... but then I didn't want to mess up my list. I guess I'll ask the swappers if they want to do a personal swap for another item (hi everyone who sews! ;D)

Looks great to me!! Can't wait!! 

I sell the rice heating pads in my Etsy shop, and yeah, I can agree too that it costs a bit to ship rice heating pads...it depends on how big they are, but you could probably squeeze them into the small flat rate Priority Mail boxes if you're not able to find a cheaper Parcel Post option.  This would be a great option especially for sending to US addresses..or try the bubble envelopes from the USPS too.  They're both around $5 to send.

I hope everyone liked what they are getting.  Because of the way the swap works, some items had to be randomly selected if some of your top picks were popular and other people had them listed higher in their top picks.  I really try to do it the fairest way possible.  Hopefully if you can't personally use the item, you could use it as a gift.  I personally think this is a great round! Love the offerings, and everyone submitted photos of their items and top picks in time.

Anyway, the list is official! You can now pm those you are sending to. DO NOT PM THOSE YOU ARE RECEIVING FROM UNTIL THEY PM YOU FIRST FOR YOUR CHOICES/ADDRESS. Thanks :)

I will be posting some pics of what I have done soon and then I will email my folks to get an idea of your preferences.  I do have 7 scrappy cuffs waiting to be trimmed and button-ized (heh), 1 scrappy flower brooch (2 waiting to be assembled), and 7 owls waiting for their button eyes.

Yes, please read the post 3 above yours. There is no way that everyone would be able to get all their top picks because some picks are more popular than others. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394193.msg4682898#msg4682898)

Okay here is what I have.

First the scrappy accessory.
cuffs: These will be trimmed to size and then I will add a button for closure.


flower brooch: Obviously the first two are not completed brooches.


Second the Owl ornaments: These guys still need their eyes as well as a little embroidery floss if being used as ornaments.

I still haven't heard back from 2 of my swap partners. And since I customize, I can't turn green until I hear from them.  I have to make them all at once and had been really hoping to make them early this week but since I still don't know which other two to make, I couldn't.

I've heard from other swappers, too, that they are waiting to hear back from partners.  Please everyone reply to your pm messages.

If someone hasn't heard from me, and they have PMed... check the spelling of my name....  I have been in several swaps where that has been a problem.  Sometimes people spell it kimcherry, and if you open a new PM and type it in that way, it will get lost in PM neverland.  Its has happened to me for that same reason more than a few times.  I've written back to everyone who has sent me a PM, but I think there's at least 1 person I haven't heard from as far as preferences go, and I didn't want to PM them and bug them in case they weren't ready to ask yet.

Everyone, you need to reply to your pm messages. Communication is huge!  I gave everyone a few days leniency around the US holiday but people still aren't responding.  If people do not respond, they will not get preferences for their item. And if they continue to not respond, they will get a negative in this swap.

Swappers, if you have someone not responding, please pm me their name and the date you contacted them.

Post by: rlynn on November 26, 2011 02:04:51 PM
I will be finishing up my items tonight and pming GatorWrangler when I am done.  So if anyone is waiting for me to turn green, I should be green tomorrow...although that is a Sunday...anyhow, the plan is to finish tonight.

Everyone is getting either their first or second pick. It worked out very well.  

All this stuff about people not replying is making me nervous.  I believe I have replied to everyone who sent me a PM.  If I haven't send me another one, please. I did check to see if I replied to aisy though and it says I did.  I'll go back and double check all my PMs though just in case.

I heard from texscrapper before the holidays.  My guess is she's probably out of town right now since she hasn't been on Craftster since the 22nd.

That would be my guess, too, but I pmed before texscrapper was last on.  I'm giving a few more days because of the holiday to hear from everyone, but please stay in communication as much as possible.  Sendouts are very soon and some people haven't been able to finish crafting because they are still waiting to hear from people.

Just a reminder that everyone needs to be finished crafting and marked "green" by Dec 1 which is only 2 days ago.  I'm one of those non-greens because I am still waiting to hear from someone for preference.  If anyone is still waiting to hear from someone, please let me know.

Oh my!  About a year ago I was putting something together and got a huge glob of molten hot glue in the web of my fingers.  It stuck there, I had to peel it off while still hot, all while trying not to scream because there was a satellite TV guy in our house at the time. 
Just reading that gave me horrible flashbacks of inner finger pain.   
Hope it feels better soon!  Probably by the weekend it will not hurt anymore, and just be red and yucky.

I updated the sent/received list. If you receive something, please pm me.

And does anyone on here have a Facebook page for their crafting or anything like that? If you do, I would love to see it :)

Sent all, and received a ton of stuff. Gack, FB, no! I had been thinking of posting crafts on tumblr, but then I didn't see the point of posting the same stuff on two sites.

I assume GatorWrangler you mean a facebook page devoted exclusively to just our crafts, yes?  I post my items in an album on my personal page but I don't have a business page.

Not just business pages, but personal pages. :)
