Details of swap:
  So Im sure were are all excited for the last twilight saga movie to come out.  So to get us all in the twilight mood I thought we would do breathless for breaking dawn round 2.  Last time we did a premier swap so we crafted one item to wear one item to play with and one item to eat.  I want that to be an option but not required. So I am making this a 6pt swap.  If you would like to do the premier version that is fine and I will try to partner people that way.  If not just a regular twilight themed swap.  Either way we are going to have an outstanding gallery full of twilight goodies.

Hello. (:

I've never completed a swap before, and I was wondering, what is a 6pt swap?

Hello. (:

I've never completed a swap before, and I was wondering, what is a 6pt swap?


 This is craftsters point system
There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
3pt- Large = 3 or more hours
2pt- Medium = 2 or more hours
1pt -Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

 I hope this helps.

We had to late joiners to our swap jenleahlynn and mariak.  The both missed the signups and decided to swap with each other.  Welcome! 
On a crafting note I just finished my HP package so I am in full twilight crafting mode.  I am re-reading the series and Im 3/4 way through the Eclipse and am planning a movie marathon for next week.

Haven't started anything.  Just finished up my other swap packages too so can focus on this one.  Watched Twilight for ideas last week, now just need to move onto the others and start putting those ideas to work.

I am so excited for this swap.  ;D i Had just finished a 2 month swap and just saw this a few days too late. I LOVE! Twilight (and Hary Potter  :P) I am rereading the twilight book and twilight movie at the minute and really looking forward to breaking dawn part 2. ;D

i borrowed breaking dawn on audio from our library to listen to on the way to work. they also had an illustrated companion to twilight that gives more details about individual characters history.

i've also been looking at pinterest for ideas, now i just need to narrow it down and make a plan....


Title: Re: Breathless for Breaking Dawn rd 2 SU-Sept 12-26; SO Nov 6
Post by: spikefan on October 08, 2012 06:01:16 PM
I was so excited about this swap that I got the large and small 75% done and the medium 50% done while watching the movies the first few days but then got sick and now I'm behind on other things so I haven't had a chance to finish anything. I picked up a few supplies a few days ago for the medium and an extra, but I still need to pick up a couple more of them since it is one of the supplies I don't have a lot of variety of.

Yay! Welcome jenleahlynn and mariak! The more swappers the better! I've got five smalls down, and I don't want to stop! I'm having too much fun, lol.

While enjoying a twilight marathon I came up with an idea today I have it 3/4 of the way done.  I think it might be my accessory or part of the accessories or maybe an extra. ;D  Im not sure yet.  I have to order items for the wearable and I have a good idea for my snack so things are moving along so well. As for my other partner I have gathered items for two things and a good idea what I am making for the rest.

i have lots of ideas, now i have to start making decisions about which ones to make..the small is done, that was easy, not i have to decide which large so i can be sure it gets done...i'm sending to englad and i'm wondering if 'treats' travel very well, i would hate to end up with cookie crumbs.

no one at my house likes twilight but me, so it's nice to have a reason to make things.

Been buying supplies and know where I'm going.  Started on a large.  Listened to the first book on cd, will probably watch the movies as I'm working on the projects.

I'm still here!  :)

So I made wonderful progress today finished staticmonters large and redid one of abeeroads items it turned out way betterthan the first one. Also found the perfect other item for abeeroads wearable and failed at another item.  So today was mixed with highs and lows but loving every minute of it. How is everyone else doing ?

Doing good! Halfway through a large item. Haven't started the wearable, but know what I'm doing. Still brainstorming on my others. I have pieces cut for another item, but I'm not sure what to turn them into...hmmm.

I'm so excited! It's almost November!

Progress:

Small: 100% complete
Medium: Not started...
Large: 55% finished

The large will definitely be finished by the weeks end, and then I'll get stared on the medium. I'm hoping to send out a day or two early; we'll see how that pans out.

i've suprised that there aren't more twilight items in the stores yet, but i was excited to find a treasure at a garage sale today...now do i send it as an extra or keep it for myself? 

no idea how to make percentages for projects. half way there on more than one thing, but keep changing my mind on others....

We are having some rain and winds abit here too in Ohio, but  sure nothing compared to you.  I took the weekend off from crafting due to trick-or-treating and sick family so it is back to it tomorrow. I'm so excited sendouts are next week!  Istill havent bought my midnight premiere tickets.

We never lost power so I finished my large for chughes!!  I'm working on another wearable today and another thing that will probably be the activity if I ever get the details straight in my head.

I will be done crafting in time, but I hope the post office will be back in working order by the 6th! Normally I'd say no prob, but I've never seen NJ like this!

i am kicking myself for not signing up this swap! Is anyone else anxiously awaiting the day the movie comes out? Last year I made my hubby take me on the night it was released and it was a mad house, we had to sit in the front which i hate, we went and saw the new batman movie when it came out and had to sit in the front row, the very front row...this year i think i am going to take me daughter with me, shes 8 but she likes twilight...i am soooo excited!

it would be nice to have a movie buddy. :) my daughters are 9 and not interested in twilight yet, so either my husband will be humoring me and going like last time, or i will be finding a local freind to go with me. last time some of my freinds went to a thursday marathon followed by the midnight showing, but i just couldn't do it and go to work the next day.

the girls are all about harry potter now, but of course they were to young when deathly hallows was in the theater.

This is why it's not cool to wait until the last week to do things, LOL.  Something I was planning won't work, bah.  So either scrap the project or necessity is the mother of invention!  Trying to figure it out.

I know the feeling, I have a project that I couldn't find everything I needed for it, so I'm also to decide whether to figure out another way for them or to come up with something else. Other than that one thing I'm just about finished, just need to finish ________ up the ____ and putting the _____ on the _____. ;D

I am mostly done and packaged everything up.  ;D just waiting for a _________ to arrive so i can ___________ it and then will be ready to post.  :D Not bad considering i joined up later.  :)

oh i can't wait to get my package! i think i have craftster add, all these things that aren't quite done, and i' m jumping from project to project.

i understand about things not working the way you plan. i chickened out on a fully handmade large, and did a purchased and embellished instead. it's looking pretty cool though, and i'm going to have a hard time letting go of it!

Just popping in to say WATCH PART 2!!!!!!!!  :o
  It's amazing and will shock you! But please---don't throw stuff at the screen  8) It's EXTREMELY satisfying and will leave you at one point saying "this isn't real, this isn't real!!" and squinting your eyes shut ;) But keep watching!

    GO WATCH IT!!!
