Title: SURPRISE Swap--Sign up 8/10-8/17 Send by 9/10/12
Post by: Leslieshappyheart on August 10, 2012 10:04:47 AM


Here's the GALLERY (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=413042.new#new)


Let's do a fun, quick swap with a surprise: you don't know who is crafting for you!

You will get the questionnaire of the person you will send to, but you don't know who is sending to you until you get a package in the mail. You will have 3 weeks to make something great your partner will love, based on the answers to her questionnaire and her wist or pinterest. All types of crafting are welcome.

Details of swap
--This will be a 2 point swap (two smalls or a medium, about 3-4 hours of crafting time all together).
--You may craft anything you want, as long as you think it will please your partner, based on her questionnaire, wist, pinterest, or anything else you can find out about her.
--You will have a little over 3 weeks to craft, from Aug. 17 to Sept. 10, 2012.
--Spoiling is allowed, but keep in mind that you will probably not be equally spoiled in return.
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.  Failure to do so will be reflected in the comment section of the feedback you receive for this swap.
--Most importantly:  PM both organizers when you send (and receive)—BUT NOT THE PERSON YOU SEND TO!  Keep your identity a surprise until she gets your package.  DO include a note in the package telling her who you are.

*PLEASE READ THIS!*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizer of your group know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important. Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.
- HAVE FUN!

Shoot! I just filled out my questionnaire but sent it only to Lesliehappyheart and didn't keep a copy so I can't sent to susanab too, like it said. I'm sorry!

Swap didn't even begin yet and I'm causing problems. Oy.

You will just have to go with what's on the questionnaire and what you can find out from her pinterest or wist.

Does anyone else fill-in/send questionaires & then spend the next 3 days thinking about what they should have written?  Not like I do that... No...  Just wondering if you do  ::)

It is going to be kind of strange keeping a secret & not asking my partner for details...  I'm usually a pretty chatty swapper - this will be a new experience!

i just sent mine in and I'm already thinking of a 1,000 things to write on there!  Usually I don't worry about it I will just send a message when we get partners but this time I can't do that. I'm going to trust that my amazing partner will be able to pick through all my rambling and figure out something awesome!

Yup!  Especially in swaps where other people post their wants or lists and then I'm like 'oh I should have put that, why didn't I think of that.'  Then I finally decide that what I put was okay and if my partner has questions, she can ask but I guess that won't happen this swap.  Besides the questionnaires and Pinterest/Wist, you can stalk them on Craftster and probably find out lots more about them  ;D

I was just thinking how I'm going to have to use some different stalking muscles for this one.
Also, to fight the urge of dropping hints is going to take every inch of willpower I have.  ;)

PS IsikkahJai,

For anyone who feels that they should have said more on their questionnaire, here's an idea:  start a new board on your pinterest especially for this swap.  Call it "surprise swap ideas" or something, so when your partner stalks you she won't be able to miss it.  Fill it up with all the things you like:  color palettes, particular crafted items, tutorials for something you like; and add extra info in the comment section, like "these slippers in size 6, in blue or green".

Hey, everyone, I just want to let you know that I changed the time on Friday that sign-ups will close; it is now 3pm rather than 10am.  That will give Susan time to get home from work, and start pairing up partners in her group!  You  will get the questionnaire of the person you send to sometime that afternoon or evening.

I know what you mean - I was going to cut back this year but this swap is #16 for this year alone and #130 for the 6 years I've been with Craftster.

Hi, my name is Cindy and I'm addicted to swapping  :D

Hi Cindy. I too am addicted.

I have a sneaky suspicion it would be a super-fun support group that we all could attend.
Wait, perhaps THIS is the support group?

I think I just blew my own mind...  :D :D :D

It's going to be weird not being able to ask questions of your partner O.O How do we find out information?

I was just thinking how I'm going to have to use some different stalking muscles for this one.
Also, to fight the urge of dropping hints is going to take every inch of willpower I have.  ;)

PS IsikkahJai,
I love your avatar, that's one of my fave Fluttershy moments!!!

I was a narf and specifically asked for something then didn't put my measurements on the questionnaire. That's what prompted my goofy question ::)
  Also, silentblair----I TOTALLY KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN!!  :D I'm a super chatty/teasing swapper so I have to reel myself in with this swap! Hee hee. Might be interesting to lay some false leads.... Hmmz.......
     And thanks for the avatar compliment! Fluttershy is my fave! It's funny too because I keep getting comments from crafters who say their kids will stop by the computer and point and shout at it when they see her. LOL. That's probably why I haven't changed it yet  ;)

OO I'm REALLY hoping for Christmas ornaments for my kids in the zoo swap I'm organizing!

For this one, I think I'm in the mood for sewing.....I got a new sewing machine for mother's day, and other than just play with stitches, I haven't really used it!

Of course, it will all depend on what my partner wants, and I might be led in an entirely different direction!

I'm not commiting to deciding what I'm making til I see a Pinterest or something.  That said, I saw a really cute R2D2 hoopla on someone else's Pinterest that looks fun so I'm hoping my partner likes Star Wars lol.

I forgot to put that I'd prefer not to have jewelry on my questionaire.  My toddler yanks on things like that.   :-\

I don't quite know what type of crafty mood I'm in. I'm at a bit of a stall between projects so perhaps I'm up for anything!

Although, the project I worked on this morning was a Surprise Swap pinterest board.
Thinking back to not having contact with my crafter extraordinaire: I put a little note under the header.
Perhaps I will add things from time to time there to be a bit cheeky.

It's fun to be cheeky.

Finish and hang crochet embroidery floss bunting over kitchen sink: Done
Finish back of hoop: Done
Crochet around the wires of my headphones

I have calabaza already friended on pinterest, so I guess she probably doesn't have me--???? I had checked out a pinterest that had similar things to mine---maybe ?? Has me!! Ahhh--this is so fun, but keeping secret is HARD!!

I'm delighted with my partner - though, honestly, I would have been with any one of the craftsters on the list!  I already have a pretty good idea of what I'm making, though I'll have to stalk browse around a bit more before I get started, just in case.  ::)

Oooo Intriguing! I literally was browsing some projects earlier and said "Hmm that would be a fun thing to try out, but doubtful it could be a hit for anyone's list for this swap." Guess what though... IT IS! I may get to try something sort of new :) Nothing is ever wrong with that. Must have been some slight telepathy going Susan and Leslie!

   To my Sender: I'm sorry my color tastes are so weird ::) I am the complete opposite of the rest of the world I think so feel free to craft in jewel tones if you despise Orange and Lime Green and Neon Pink  :D

my send partner already outed herself! Apparently she got so excited that she was sending to me, because we live relativity close together, that she sent me a message asking to get together. Sent me this big long excited chatter email and then sent me another message basically saying "Oh my god I am such an idiot!" I laughed so hard.

Might have to make her a little something for when we meet up........off to stalk!!!! ;D

Oh wow, that is soooo funny!!!  I'm glad to know that you and your sender are so compatible.

Yes, I think the way to do it is include a note with your package revealing your identity.

I am going to try super duper hard to not PM - it was so bloody tempting to do it last night to get some colour ideas, etc, but I am sitting on my fingers.  I have some items in my stash that may suit so I think I will use those and the colours are right - at least that is what I am determined to tell myself.  I probably am starting on a couple of the items today.  Mine is going to be a loose interpretation of 3 points :D

I've already started my thing. It is also a somewhat "loose" interpretation of 2 points.

And I noticed in my giant mass stalking/pinterest following before partners were sent out, that I was already following a lot of you. So don't count on me being your partner if I'm another new follower - maybe I started stalking you months ago for this!  :D (Or maybe I add just about every Craftster who's pinterest I come across a link to. poh-tay-toh/poh-tah-toe)

Haha I already know who my send partner is so I dont have to wonder about who is stalking me. I was all ready to start working this swap last night and then my dog got hit by a car so I didnt end up doing anything.

Oh no!! Is your dog ok?

Yeah he was my bubby. He was a rescue, the lady who had him before me wanted to kill him because he was old and she was bored with him. He was about 14 and I had him for almost 2 years. He was a spoiled boy who loved tennis balls and playing sweetest dog once he got comfortable with me and realized i wasnt going to kick him. My other dog Laylay keeps looking around for him, I think she misses him too.

scarlet, sorry to hear about your dog... The dog I have now is a rescue, and i think I have bonded with her more than the dogs I had since they were puppy's, I think its that look she gives me that says "THANKS"... so remember all the wonderful things about your bud, and know in your heart that you made a difference and that he passed away being one happy and loved pup!!

on a crafting note... I started a tiny little extra yesterday as I really stalking my partner.... I think I know what I want to do, well, I at least have it narrowed down to a handful of things... now its time to put them all in a hat and pick my fate.... and yeah, I really do that .... write them all down, fold them all up, and pick one..... if one of the kids is around I make them pick one... and if I'm alone, Ill put them on the floor and see which one my dog picks up first... she loves to play with paper  ;)

Scarlet_nights, I am so sorry for your lost.  It's so hard to lose a pet.  They give such unconditional love and devotion, and become such an integral part of our lives.  It leaves a huge void when they are gone.  We just said goodbye to our fuzzy four footed love a few weeks ago ourselves.

I can't believe how this thread has exploded - let alone that we have someone finished!  I am a bit irked with myself though.  I have an idea for my bigger item for this project and was going to pick up my supplies for it today while out doing the grocery shoppng and completely forgot!  On the other hand, I am done a smaller item.  I could not find a pattern I liked, so I made up my own.  It took a couple of tries, but it is done!

My condolences scarlet. We lost a dog this summer too, it's hard.

Crafty news:
About 1/2 done with the first part of first item.
I about had to smack my hand to not repin something so cool from my recipient's pinterest.
Perhaps I should next time...it might teach me a lesson.
Maybe I'll craft a special hand-smacking ruler to keep by the computer to remind me.

Wow~!~ I was offline for the weekend and can't believe how much action this swap board has seen!!  Fun!

I'm *finally* able to start stalking my partner~ She is going to be an awesome partner, I can't wait to get to crafting for her...  Looks like most people are throwing the "2 point swap (two smalls or a medium, about 3-4 hours of crafting time all together)" out the window, eh? Works for me!  I won't go tooooo crazy, but apparently have a hard time translating 2 points into reality...

Dear person who has me:  I just edited my Pinterest board "Things I want to make (or have made for me)"...  I realized that there were a LOT of things on there that I really want to make, but not necessarily for myself...  I've created another board called "Things I want to make for other people".  If you've already decided on the thing that you want to make for me & it's been moved over, please don't worry!  I still love all of the stuff and am sure I will love what you make for me :)

Lol!

I have 1/4 finished my super huge thing, so am panicing less about the scale of it. But also came up with two backup plans in case I start running out time time. Both of which are at least two points, and which I cannot choose between, so will probably end up doing both. At this point I just hope I don't end up finishing early, or I'll be obliged to do all three.

I'm not a compulsive over spoiler - I'm... um... simply compensating for how slow I craft, that's it. After all, if I stuck firmly to 3-4 hours, nothing I made would look much like anything.

Usually I'm processing for a few days, but I was awake and on Craftster when partners went out, so I started stalking right away. And I was just lucky to find the perfect thing that I could make my partner so I just grabbed my supplies and got to it.

I was in luck today! I had one small for my person, then searched pinterest for ideas based off their questionnaire and found two easy things I believe she'll enjoy, and I saw a cute re-giftable item in my craft room. I want to make one more thing to round it out.

What if...
The big surprise was that we were actually partnered with the people we were sending to? Like, they were sending to us too?
 
Anywho, it gave me a big sneaky smile on my face!
 ;)
we thought about that. oh, no, no it wasn't that. was it, leslie?
but then we decided, wait. what did we decide?
well we didn't really decide but we THOUGHT. hold on, it's coming back.
little bit at a time...

Too funny!  Its hard to post without giving anything away.  I will have to share a thought after everyone receives. I am such a goof sometimes!!!!!

Sounds like Susan my be in the first stages of oldtimers!!!!  tee hee!!!!!

I know for a fact that we aren't "secretly" partnered, based on something MY partner posted in the thread. Or---- at least I'm 99.8% sure anyway  O.o

 Isn't fun knowing that someone sent in this swap already? We ALL are going to be checking our mail boxes for the next week now! LOL. It's SO FUN!  ;D

   I know what I want to make but I need some sturdier ________ for it. My partner is NOT afraid of color so I can PLAY PLAY PLAY all I like  ;D And I really want to try making something I've never done before but SHOULD HAVE a long time ago :P There's a million tutorials for them--I just need a few hours to myself!

Or maybe she has me, since we've been partnered before, and we are (international) FB friends, she knows that I think rainbow is a colour like most people say chocolate is a food group.

I'm learning how to beat Canada Post at it's own game - if I'm sending candy, take it out of the box, put it in a ziploc bag - if I included the box in my package it was going to cost double what it did cost to send because it bumped my package from letter mail to small package.

Had to re-read that carefully to make sure I didn't give anything away......nope, think I'm okay  ;D

Hey everyone, just a couple of reminders:

It is very important to COMMUNICATE in this swap!  As soon as you receive from your surprise sender, pm her and your organizer so we know the package arrived.

Also, weekly posting to this thread or the gallery thread is a requirement of this swap; most of you are being wonderfully chatty, so keep it up!!  Thanks everybody!!

I have finished about 2/3 of a medium, but I need to watch some refresher videos on the last 1/3.  I'm hoping to watch today & finish my craft off this weekend.  I've been debating a small, but since it involves something that can melt & my partner & I live in hot climates, I don't know if that is such a good idea.

That I can relate to!  A few months back, I walked out of Subway to find an empty parking lot.  I stood there for a few seconds thinking - did someone take my car?  did I walk here and forget?  I was seriously getting worried - then I remembered, I had parked on the road beside the restaurant  :D

On a crafty note - I'm waiting for my package to arrive at its destination.

On the off chance this is me, or my partner is struggling with the same problem, we haven't hit "hot" yet. It's Spring which means mostly rain and usually not higher than 70 -80°F (Thank you Google for telling me what 20-25°C was!) After November we'll have to worry about going over 30 but not yet.

At first I thought I should hold it until I mailed mine, but that thought only lasted like one minute. I opened it as soon as I got in the house  :D I am already using it. Thanks Johnson.mom2two, for a great surprise.

Oh god - I can't cope with anything about 25C - my sister lives in Singapore and her selling feature to me when she was trying to convince me to move there was that the average temperature is 35C - THE HORROR <shudder>

That's why I like it north of the 49th parallel - and beyond!

I have literally a teeny weeny thing left to do - and perhaps make a note card and I will likely be sending this weekend.

We have had a pretty warm summer here.  Mostly 25 - 30C before humidity, but that is the way I like it.

I completed something yesterday, but it did not turn out like I wanted.   >:(  I am still going to include it, but am not counting it towards the points.

I am very close to finishing item 2 and have a couple ideas for item 3 and a couple extras.  My plan is to craft this long weekend and send Tuesday after work.

I had a fail last night but found something else I think I'm going to try. I think I can salvage at least ___ of the ____ from the fail so that's good. This would be a lot easier if I could ask questions!

In fact I have three days to send! Lol it's a good job I have made all but the tiniest of goodies  ;D
.
That's why I like to write the date in descending order, year/month/day.

I have to look twice at the dates for EVERY swap, I never learn. Doesn't America like to do everything the other way around, though? ;)

Wow, sorry about that, BunnieBoo!  That's a good reason for me to actually write out the month, rather than just use numbers, in future swaps.

Yes, we are down to our final days of crafting, everyone...send out day is Monday, September 10th.  (Coincidentally, I have jury duty that day!  I hope it gets cancelled!)

I had jury duty 20 years ago and found it very interesting, an experience I'll probably never get again.

Craft wise, my package has been received and now I just wait the arrival of my package and finally get to learn who it's from.

I wouldn't mind jury duty at all, except that I can't sew while I'm there, since needles and scissors are prohibited.

I'm looking forward to those pictures, Susan!

Well, I posted to my secret partner! I hope you like what I made you, and I hope it doesn't take too long to reach you (that's my only clue - my partner does not live in Australia like I do!).

And, even better, I received - from Leslie as well! You sure have been.busy. I received an awesome rainbow tote (and some chocolates, Aw yeah) but I won't be able to post pics until possibly tomorrow (typing this from my phone, but I will have a computerthen).

Thank you so much for my awesome surprise :D

There was construction and crazy traffic, and got by the train on my way to the post office today. They closed the window when I walked in, so I used the Automated post, but it wasn't taking anyone's payments. :/ So I just printed my postage on-line and am going to try to drop it off at a pack and mail place, so I can also send my media mail at the same time. I've been ready to ship since last Thursday but haven't had my car, so partner, I am trying really hard to get it done today.


Edit: Yaaaaay package is in the mail, down the chute in the bin, off to a truck. Woot!

I agree, it is torture with this swap, waiting to receive, b/c you don't know when you will receive!  And there's no hints in the swap thread as to what your partner may be making you.  Waiting was never my forte.

I didnt receive my swap package today, but i DID receive a nifty thank you card from my surprisee, MaryColleen!  Thank YOU for making my afternoon....its nice to know whne people really like and use what is made for them!

It was the least I could do after receiving that fabulous package.  I already had to fight off my Mom and my Aunt because they wanted the purse and wallet for themselves.

I am ready to send today too.  My one project was taking much longer than I expected and I had a couple minor family issues, but it is all ready to go.  Now just time to pack and send.

Just making my apologies in advance to my surprisee  :-[   Life got a bit too much in my way and I was late sending.  The package went out Friday and the Post Office guy said it should be there by Monday, so you shouldn't have too much longer to wait.  I'm soo sorry  :-*

Your package should be there soon Blair...in fact, almost all the packages should reach their destinations within the next few days!

Me too - especially since the other Australian sender's parcel has arrived, and we sent roughly the same time.

At this point I usually start to get super nervous :( I'm sure it's just taking its time - heck, it was probably Australia Post, right? ;)
