Title: Bookmark Swap 2 (SIGNUP CLOSED; MAIL BY 7/21/05)
Post by: dreamisle on June 22, 2005 05:31:20 AM
Swap name: Bookmark Swap 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: DreamIsle
Sign-up date range: June 22-July 8, 2005
Date to send item by: July 21, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? no
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES (I think so anyway...)
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
This is kinda the same as the last bookmark swap. Simply create 3 bookmarks however you like (paper, string, beads, decoupage, glitter, stamps.... HOWEVER YOU LIKE) and send one to each of the addresses given to you. The bookmarks you make don't have to match each other. It's a really free kinda swap. Hopefully everyone enjoys it as much as the first bookmark swap! Also, sending is pretty cheap and you don't have to get a shipping number and all that.

Here is the bookmark swap minisite, where you can check out bookmarks from past bookmark swaps and all that great stuff. http://dreamisle.dexxent.com/crafts/bms/

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap (specify as PM title)
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
Favorite colors, themes, or styles
Disliked colors, themes, or styles
If you participated in the last swap, is there anyone you WOULD or WOULD NOT like to trade with again?
Anything else you'd like to add?

Note: If you don't specify whether or not you want to swap with someone who you swapped with last swap, I'm going to try to give you someone you haven't swapped with before.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Glad to see so many people have signed up! If you're reading this and you haven't participated in a swap yet, this is a great opportunity. The first bookmark swap was my first and it's really easy and a ton of fun. Don't be afraid! Craftster has a lot of great people you can trust, and if you get flaked in this swap you're still getting stuff from two more people (hopefully!) and you aren't out any serious money.

Wow round two sign-ups end so soon! I was really enjoying the gallery for round one and thought I'd definitely be able to sign up for the second- but you guys work fast  ;)
I'm finishing up my first swap now and no matter how much I rush I don't think I can get feedback by the 30th. Hey maybe a round three ???... :), although I guess there's only so many bookmarks one person can have.

Well, if I can get confirmation from your swap partner that they recieved the item from you, I might be able to let you in. PM me your info and I can at least put you on the waiting list. Otherwise, I'm gonna extend the signup period and possibly the mail date (hey, just like the first bookmark swap. good things are worth waiting for, aye?)

I'm assuming I'm not the only one who was interested in extending the sign up date??? I'd hate to think I was responsible for slowing you guys down.
Should I send you my info now and be "on hold" or just wait till I finish up my first swap?
Thanks!!

Post by: dreamisle on June 23, 2005 01:37:56 PM
Send the info now, and then if you haven't gotten feedback by the swap start date I can still ask the organizer of your swap and your swap partner whether you'll be getting positive or negative. Remember, flakers get coal for Christmas!

Eh, when I did my first swap I waited til I was legal to sign up, but if you wanna do so early just remind me about that and I'll make sure to check that and everything.

I don't get my 1-month anniversary until 15 july, is it possible to extend sign-up - pleeeeease :)

Post by: dreamisle on June 26, 2005 08:27:05 AM
Sorry Rehn, I already extended signups once from 7/1 to 7/8, but I'm almost positive the great response will warrant a third swap. One other thing, is make sure you first time swappers get 15 posts/replies onder your belt before you sign up, as that's a requirement too.

I've never sent anything in an envelope outside the US, but a postcard to Finland was 70 cents as opposed to 23 cents, but it all depends on destination, size, all that. There's only one non-US participant at the moment so if you wanna ask about sending to Germany on the USPS website they can usually tell you for sure.

Sorry, I really don't know everyone here yet, so it'd be great if you could have a moderator vouch for you or something. Too bad you deleted your other account, otherwise I could just check the feedback on that one  :(

After signups are closed.  Once dreamisle knows exactly who is partisipating, he will chart out who mails what to whom and let each of us know --

Just a note, friday is the last day to sign up, but there are over 25 participants, so it might take me a few tries to shuffle everyone according to who doesn't want to swap with who or who doesn't want to send outside the US. Everyone should have their swap partners PMed to them by next Sunday at the very latest unless something comes up emergency style. I'll also post here after everyone gets the PMs so you'll know who's sending to who.

I'm sorry, I read PMS like... you know. PMS. It made me giggle. Anyhow.

I'm considering joining this... but I dunno. Guess I've got a couple days to decide yet...

Ahhh!  :-[ Noooo! I always try to make the S lowercase. I fixed it now. I'd be happy if you enter the swap though.

You may have changed it, but I'll still be saying "gets the PMS" referring to that time of the month from now on. I'm not making fun of you, it's just when things like that make me giggle, it's hard to get them out of my head. Don't hold it against me, k?

I'm leaning towards joining this.

Alright, I'm in.

Just a reminder, signup ends tonight at midnight (Eastern Standard Time) so those of you lurking around this message who have been here a month or more and have 15 posts or more, sign up NOW!

I should have everyone's swap partners given out by Sunday, maybe sooner. Remember, I have to pair everyone up with three people to send to and three people to recieve from, and there are nearly 30 people!

With a whopping 30(31?) entrants, signup for Bookmark Swap 2 is now over. Tomorrow I will start sorting out everyone and try to match some people with similar interests and according to countries you're willing to send to and all that. I should have you're PMs with your three(3) addresses to send out to by Sunday evening unless this gets more complicated than necessary.

Also, if you were pending feedback on a first swap, I checked up on whther your items arrived and let you in anyways, except for... ohmyword. It mystifies me that you're not on the list for the Old Fashioned Random Swap yet you have 'In Progress' feedback for it. Can someone explain how that would work? I'm not quite sure to include you or not, but if there's no real explanation then maybe I'll give you the chance here anyway. :)

Yeah, I dont want want to start because I don't want to make something my partners would hate, actually I'm kinda scared my bookmarks wont be very good and I'll disapoint...

well if I'm making for you you have been warned- I'll try my best  :)

There is nothing wrong with starting early, and no one said one has to follow the preferences exactly.  I hope I didn't imply otherwise.

I'm about to start sending PMs with your swap partners' addresses in them. I dunno when I'll be able to do the feedback. We have 31 participants but the swap feedback form has room for only 30, and I'm afraid I'll mess it up.

Feel free to ask them questions. Actually it's kinda hard to be secretive since I just posted the list of who is swapping with whom  ;) but feel free to ask questions if you need input or their likes and dislikes are too vague.

I suggest if you're unsure to PM your swap partner before you send just to triple check  ;) And the bookmark swap site has been updated with the full list as well as the first post in the thread.

Also, I don't have a digital camera and I won't be able to post anything I receive, so if my partners have access, please take pics before you send to me!  ;)

Bobolink, you don't need to get confirmation numbers but if you have the reciept from the store where you bought stamps or if you took a pic of the bookmark or something let us see that in the odd event nothing shows up.

My 3 bookmars are on the way too! I sent them this morning, so dreamisle, Avian Flight and dukeslaxx44 will be getting their bookmark hopefully soon! 

They are sent from overseas, so it may take a little longer than domestic USA post, but it does not take too long, so soon they will arrive. I hope you like them!

Done, done, and done!  They'll go to the post office on Monday morning, when I get done with work (trying to get to the post office when you work the graveyard shift isn't easy) but I have no idea how long it takes to ship things to Canada, hopefully not too long as I'm pretty close to the border.  I'm so excited!!

I received my bookmarks from padray yesterday, but I'm waiting to post pictures until I receive all three.

An apology in advance for the three people I'm sending to:
The bookmarks may arrive a couple of days late because I have been, and will be until the middle of next week, constantly going in and out of town so I haven't had any time to work on them.

My bookmarks are done! I'll see if I can mail them ASAP, but the absolute latest I will be mailing them is *gasp* on the mail-by date. Why is it that I feel so behind, when really I'm right on schedule?

I know what you mean- I feel so bad for not sending mine out sooner. But I have now sent them, except I got to the post office about 5 minutes after last collection yesterday and no post on sundays so they'll actually go on monday but they have been posted if you get me.

I dont think what I just said made any sense...  ;D

Just got back from vacation, so I'm a little behind.  I already have one bookmark made, but it's kind of oversized.  I hope no one minds.. :(

I have NVA, StarSix, and Darkest_Faerie.

Erg!  It's almost midnight, and my stuff is not dry!  This is a problem because I must get up unholy early in the morning to catch a flight to NYC, and I will not get back until the 22nd.

duct tape_diva, littlest ninja, starxduzt: please don't be upset if I mail out a day or two late?  I do not think I'll have the pre-dawn chutzpah to finish them before the plane, but I can finish them up as soon as I get back......

Okay, I sent mine out, but...

Because they're going out of my country (USA) into Canada, I had to write what was in the packages on the outside of them so that Customs would let the package through    :-\   So, I'm sorry if some of the surprise is ruined.  It made me a little sad.  Oh well.

dreamisle, I am happy that you received your bookmarks, I can not believe how fast they got there!

Sometimes 'snail mail' is not snail at all  :D   Email and all is good, but nothing can compete with the good old mail and the feel of the paper in the hands, even if sometimes it is a little slower. I love receiving 'normal' mail and I can not wait until I get my bookmarks and until my 2 other swap partners get theirs!

Don't forget to let me know as soon as you get your bookmarks in the mail so I can check off the people who sent them in my good feedback list. I'm having some drama with people (yes, plural) who might have flaked and I need to heard from everyone and all that. If anyone knows who the user bElla is(was?), can someone get me some info on that? That account no longer exists and I haven't heard back from my email to bElla yet. I also haven't heard anything about sending from ohmyword, starxduzt, reverend kayla, or Flareon. And if you're being sent to by PimpernelSmith or pawnshoppromises, they contacted me about needing an extra day to send by unforseen problems. If I made a mistake with anything I just said, or you want to let me know you sent, recieved, or whatever, PM or reply to this topic ASAP please :)

Its been brought to my attention that there isn't a swap gallery yet. I haven't gotten all of my bookmarks yet (only 1 (well, 2 from 1 person)) but if someone else would like to start a gallery and post the link here, that'd be the greatest. If not I can try to have one started by monday night, but this weekend has been one big mess/surprise after another  :-\

I was MIA over the weekend, but I received 2 bookmarks on Saturday, and the 3rd today! Yay! I got:

a crocheted 'bookworm' from Bobolink (very cute! I've never seen one before!)
a melted crayon(?)  picture of a blue & purple shroom with a orangey-yellow background (I <3 shrooms!) from pawnshoppromises
a construction paper 'quote' bookmark & a silver sparkly skull with a blue tassel bookmark from the_meow_wont_purr
**What is that material anyway? Very cool! It makes me think of Grimm (from the Grimm Adventures of Billy & Mandy)!

The quote is: Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is that little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow." --Anne Hunninghake (Actually, I like to think this quote has relevance for me right now, as I'm returning to school this Aug. after a 7 year "break.")  :P

Big thanks to bobolink, pawnshoppromises, & the_meow_wont_purr! I love all my bookmarks. I will use them to mark future projects in library crafting/knitting books! I had fun & thanks for coordinating, dreamisle! I hope my bookmarks were received & liked!

I am so happy!   :D

CatyX sent me a lovely bookmark with pieces of metallic paper in golden, cooper and brown in collage style, very pretty!  Thank you CatyX, I love it!

crazywazy sent me a beautiful two-sided boomark. In one side there is a tree and a sun, the other side has a lovely rose and other cute smaller flowers, all the figures made from paper and has my name on it, lovely!
Thank you crazywazy! I love it too!

I don't have my digicam right now but as soon as I have it back I will take the pics and show them in the gallery.

Thank you to my 3 great swap partners, I love all my new bookmarks  :D

I received my last bookmark from Princessandthebead last night and I absolutely adore it!
It's a gorgeous book thong, I spent way too much of my reading time last night playing with it and wondering how she made those tiny knots and how she knew such a seemingly random group of beads would look so great together. I really like the colors too.
I now officially have all three and will post pictures tomorrow. I like to take them in the daylight and didn't have time this morning.
I really hope my bookmarks are enjoyed as much as I enjoyed mine.

Edited to say: THANK YOU!!! (how could I forget  >:( )

**If you're recieving from bElla, her account is no longer here, but by email she expressed her desire to complete the swap as best she can though some ongoing problems, so I hope you can understand about that :)

Hi, just letting you know I received from everyone. Should be posting pics soon once I upload the pics off my camera. Thanks for the great swap!

:D  I have bookmarks! 
                :-[  I do not have pictures of them.

Lucid & Ductape-diva THANK YOU!  So much fun!  The really uncanny one is the picture of the lady in Eastern dance garb -- I took Near Eastern Dance for several years and miss it terribly.  She's lovely!

Yeah!!

I'm in moving Hell right now, so I can't do round 3, but if there is a fourth go......  :)

Hi Bobolink  I am so glad that you liked it.  I enjoyed making it for you.

I have received all 3 of my bookmarks and posted the pics of them in the gallery.  Ya'll have to go and see them cause you will just love them!  They are from Flareon, dukeslax44 and bookwormby!

I still haven't gotten any bookmarks, but I'm hoping for today.  And when I get one, I don't think I can wait for all 3 before I post pictures.  I want to show off right away!  I hope BklynGal's bookmark makes it to her okay - I definitely sent it, and checked the address 3 times.   Maybe it just takes a little longer to come from Canada?

I would think it might take a bit longer to get to you from Canada.  I would have thought you would have gotten at least one by now.

Here is an updated list of who hasn't yet recieved and told me about it. If you're not on here, you already have feedback and are totally good :) if someone hasn't told me they recieved your bookmark, you still have in progress feedback and your name will be in this list with the people who I haven't heard from next to it. For example, dreamisle - fadeawaydream would mean that I haven't heard whether or not fadeawaydream recieved dreamisle's bookmark (but I know she did, just an example).

Lucid501 - ohmyword
Princessandthebead - sugarhandgrenade
padray - allfalldown, The Meow Wont Purr
ducktape_diva - dukeslax44, sugarhandgrenade
Flareon - crazy wazy
fadeawaydream - The Meow Wont Purr, pawnshoppromises
allfalldown - ohmyword
pawnshoppromises - Avian Flight
reverend kayla - Darkest_Faerie, StarSix
NVA - CatyX, BklynGal
kiki_eks - sugarhandgrenade
bElla - starxduzt, BklynGal, Lucid501 **
sugarhandgrenade - Princess Dukki, Lucid501, allfalldown
Princess Dukki - StarSix, Kiki_Eks, ohmyword
the littlest ninja - StarSix, Darkest_Faerie, Princess Dukki
Darkest_Faerie - CatyX, starxduzt
starxduzt - CatyX, reverend kayla, the littlest ninja
CatyX - Darkest_Faerie
PimpernelSmith - ducktape_diva, starxduzt *

I received two of my bookmarks, but I don't know the names right now because I'm not at home.

One of the bookmarks was green and gold, and another was from BklynGal.  Anyone want to claim the green one?

CatyX recieved yours but starxduzt hasn't told me anything, so I sent an email. I think when I pointed at bElla I picked out the wrong person that was gonna flake :( I also have down that you haven't recieved yet from the littlest ninja, catyx, or Reverend Kayla?

You know, I sent mine last Tuesday to you , Darkest_Faeire, and I know StarSix got hers, so I wonder...Is your house built on top of some ancient bookmark vortex/graveyard that we should know about?

As a side note, I also still have not received or heard from starxduzt.

To make a long story short, I sent last week, but they were returned to me. I'm sorry, it was my fault, and I'm going to re-send Tuesday (won't be able to get to the post office til then). :(

StarSix, Kiki_Eks, ohmyword, I really am sorry, and I'm gonna try to fix this. :'(

In other news, also in the mail were my bookmarks from ohmyword and sugarhandgrenade! Thank you both, they were awesome! I hope mine are well-received...

That's alright, Princess Dukki, although I am looking forward to receiving your bookmark! :)

And to BklynGal, I did send it!  I know sometimes it can take awhile to send from Canada to the US.  If you don't get it within the next week, let me know and I'll send a replacement.

Randomly as I get info from people I've been recording feedback and changing the table of bookmarks still not documented in the table in page 13. I think our biggest problems are these:
  • bElla will have some issues but still plans to send
  • Princess Dukki had hers returned in the mail but resent them and they're on their way
  • starxduzt hasn't been heard from and hasn't sent anything, so I'm assuming she flaked
  • ohmyword and BklynGal haven't told us about which bookmarks have or haven't arrived yet
Sadly enough that list accounts for everything thats still wrong with this swap except Princess Dukki not getting a bookmark from the littlest ninja yet (unless I'm wrong). I'll be asking for swap angels unless I hear from starxduzt by next friday, but the bookmarks are going to CatyX, reverend kayla, and the littlest ninja so the three of you can't be swap angels this time.

Make sure a few of you double check, but now I think the only person with no proper feedback is Princess Dukki. Has anyone gotten  a bookmark from her? the littlest ninja still hasn't heard form the littlest ninja yet about the bookmark she sent, so.... whats going on?

None of my bookmarks have been received? I'm beginning to think the post office has it in for me.  :'( I could make others, and re-send, unless my chances have been used up. I also haven't been able to get to my mailbox to check for my bookmark from the littlest ninja, but I'll see if I can get there tonight.

I'm not a flaker... I understand if it looks that way though. I'm gonna be taking a break from swaps after this.

Princess Dukki - I haven't received from you yet, but don't worry!  It takes forever for me to get anything.  Don't feel bad, the post office can screw everyone around every now and then.   Besides, your bookmark will just be a surprise for me whenever it does come. :)

No sorry - nothing yet - I didn't think you were flaking, I knew you were sending from Canada so i figured that it just took long. ??? I sent something to Canada and they never got it and that was months ago and it was only a card. It's a mystery.

I finally got my bookmark from the littlest ninja... thank you so much! That was so sweet...

And if my partners don't get my bookmarks in the next couple of days, let me know and I'll make new ones. I think it might have something to do with getting a girl from high school who never liked me much when I went to the post office... so I'll go to a different one next time. And, if none get received, I'm reporting her, because just like waiters aren't supposed to spit in your food, PO employees are NOT supposed to mess with the mail. I'm really sorry, though. I hope that they do arrive safely... this seems so strange.

Currently, to finish this ridiculously everlasting swap, we just need to have someone recieve from PrincessDukki and I'm trying to find out if lucid501 or BklynGal got bookmarks from bElla yet. If they don't answer my PM in a week then I give up trying to find out because this really is dragging on too long.

PS: Just updated the official swap website with a ton of new pictures in the gallery from swap 2 and a better updated swapper list, so check it out! If you see your bookmark pictures up there and don't like it, just PM or email me and they'll come down ASAP.

hehe :D oh good you got them. I don't even think I included a note, I was rushing to get it packed and sent before I took off for my trip. I didn't even get to test out to see if it glowed in the dark. And just think I almost didn't include that one you got a giggle out of. I thought you needed an extra one for getting flaked on. :)

Still wondering if Princess Dukki's bookmarks got through to anyone, and if anyone would like to swap angel for BklynGal. Swap 3 is starting so this is now beyond ridiculous.

I still haven't gotten a bookmark from Princess Dukki.  I've already sent a bookmark to BklynGal, but will send another one if you need me to - I can make something different.

I've made more bookmarks, throwing them in envelopes and sticking stamps on them as I type this and shoving them in the mail slot tomorrow. I hope my first ones arrive, but now there's twice the chance that something will at least arrive safely. I'm really sorry, I feel bad about this. My replacement bookmarks aren't all that special, but I hope they'll do, even if my first ones never make it.

StarSix, if you did that that would be tremendous and Princess Dukki, don't feel bad. If the post office messed up, its not your fault. I just kinda want this finished up really soon, you know what I mean?

Did the others receive theirs? Nothing has made it to OR yet & you don't have to send again.

No, I didn't get mine either.  No hurt feelings though, I don't think Princess Dukki flaked, I just think the mail is stupid.

SORRY SORRY SORRY. They have been re-sent, as of a couple days ago. I guess I was still hoping my other ones would get there...

That bookmark is absolutely perfect!  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! 

ScarySockMonster got the one I sent...(Thankfully, I was worried-it was taking a long time and I didnt want to screw up being a swap angel)

My feedback still says 'In Progress'.
What needs to be done for this to be finished up?

Sorry. Some of the swap 3 feedback never got done because I wasn't sure who recieved and who didn't sorry about the mixups. The feedback should be ok.
