I need to get 1 project done for my son's birthday before I sign up...
with a clear conscious!

I'll probably sign up with a not so clear conscious anyway. ;)
It will also give me time to work on the questionnaire.

So excited to see this swap up and running!!!

Rikaheart, welcome to the swap, and the MidnightRose, welcome to the swap! I'm so happy this could be your first swap. What better way to start the world of swapping than with Star Trek?

I've posted a couple of sketches with a little plug for the swap in the hopes of alerting other, unknowing Star Trek fans. Their not technically crafts, I guess, but I have one more item I'll post before the sign-up time runs out.

I always write entirely to many quotes down... There are just so many good ones out there.

Also, I've extended the send-out deadline to the 15th instead of the 12th so that it would be easier for everyone. :) If there is anything else like that I could adjust to help anyone out, let me know!

I just realized that I didn't even include any quotes for DS9, Voyager, or Enterprise. That just seems wrong to me.

Even more wrong, I totally spelled Geordi's name wrong. Like, multiple times. This is what I get for filling out my questionnaire when I'm barely awake I guess!

I didn't add any Quotes. There were too many to go for xD I mean WAY Too many to pick out my favorites xD I guess I'll do that for my PArtner on whoever I get xD

I posted another sketch, this one of Spock, in the 'More Arts, Less Crafts' section. Maybe it'll raise interest.

I got to watch Star Trek IV again today, and I have to say, it's my favorite of TOS Star Trek movies. I just love it all <3 Especially Checkov and the 'nuclear wessels.' Lol!

yyyeeeessssss!! It cracks me up so bad because he's Russian, and it's right in the middle of the Cold War XD That and Scotty trying to work a computer ("Hello Computer") are some of the best moments in the movie.

Welcome to the swap, silentblair (I don't know how I missed you when you first signed up, *rolls eyes at self*) and libertine49!

I'm going to close the sign-ups at Midnight on Saturday-turning-into-Sunday my time (which is eastern) so we have a little over two days left for sign-ups. I'll try and have partners assigned and sent out early Sunday morning. I'm mostly going to be pairing by location, and which Treks' you'll have seen. Let me know if you have a friend you'd really like to be paired with.

Also,  goldfishpollywog, we'd really love to have you! The more trekkie/trekkers the better!

We'll miss you, kjultz. maybe next time you can join :)

I'm working on my answers right now, bit of a rush job as I am also trying to figure out what made my power steering go out.  Both Hubs and Goose keep throwing imput my way as to both the car and the swap.... ::)

I did just pick up a bunch of Star Trek fabric at Joann's.  Bought more than I probably should have out of the sheer excitement of finding Trek fabric at all. :D

I'm so tempted......... but I'm also wanting (and needing) time away from craft swaps. My last few swaps have suffered from real life throwing me into depression. I love crafting and being creative, but depression apparently makes a person not want to do anything :| I'm much better but... just not sure. Plus I've got so many of my OWN projects lying around... Maybe I'll do a "craftalong" with you guys as I've seen things I want to make in former ST Swaps. I've got 2 days to figure it out....

Spock and Counselor Troi... my 2 most favorite characters of all time. And Jean Luc Picard. Earl Grey, Black... (except I like mine with cream and sugar hah)

Oh, I almost missed this one! I've been forcing my bf to watch TNG from the beginning with me so the timing is perfect!

On a side note, has anyone read Redshirts by John Scalzi? It's pretty awesome

I was just recommended that book by a friend. Looks like I'll be downloading it today!  ;D ;D ;D

I'm getting VERY excited for partners...
I've been brainstorming a bit, and can't wait to see if my brainstorms match up with my future partner's questionnaire.

I can't wait to get my partner! Looks like lots of people like TNG, but no one is very close to me. (Wizard-Pupil said they were doing some pairing by location) So it will be interesting to see who I get! I can't wait  ;D

I'm getting so pumped for partners!

I downloaded the audiobook for "Redshirt" and have been listening for 2 days. Wil Wheaton is the voice talent making it that much cooler. The story is really clever!!!!

Thanks goldfishpollywog, for the tip about the JoAnn's fabric. I looked online and it looks SO VERY AWESOME!!! I bet I have a coupon around here somewhere....

Also, we happen to be watching the Backyardigans this morning and it's their "Garbage Trek" episode. It's as if all the planets are in alignment for a great day.  8)

I got to meet some of them at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2010, and I have to say they're all fantastic people. I actually got a picture with myself and the fantastic LeVar Burton and my reaction pretty much went like this: "Ok, play it cool. He's just a normal guy, DO NOT FANGIRL. omg. He's putting his arm around me. Ok, breath, BREATH. OMFG HE IS HUGGING ME!! OMG OMG OMG!! *CLICK*" So my friends and I decided that it looks like my face is exploding with happiness in the picture.

I seriously hope you have tons and tons of fun!! (And yes, I'm crazy jealous that you get to meet the whole cast!)

Sorry for the delay! I've sent partners out, let me know if I've made any errors. I had to base it mostly off of who had seen what. TNG rang supreme in being the favorite.

I can't believe you're meeting the cast. I'd be a blubbering pile of fangirl. I wouldn't even be able to form words. It wouldn't be pretty at all, lol!

I am in the middle of moving house so haven't been online in two days.  Even though I sent my questionairre in, I don't get to participate because I hadn't posted in this thread yet?  I am disappointed.  If it's a requirement to post in the thread I am sorry I missed it - all the swaps I've seen have all made a point of saying that you must pm your questionnaire and not post it in the thread, so I think it needs clarifying :)

Oh no! Hopefully it will be clarified.. Maybe you were just missed, You usually need to post in this thread once or two a week to show that you're activate.

RachelD, I've talked with a admin and I'm allowed to let you in if any one would like to do a threeway or have two partners. In the  future though, make sure you send your questionairre to the organizer and then make a post in the thread.I'll have you a partner by nights end. :)
silentblair, we'll just have to make the spoilage mutual ;)

Actually it is a Craftster Swap rule that you must post in the swap thread upon joining a swap.  From the Swap Info Guide: (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html#axzz2NLl2gbhL)

Quote
In each swap signup thread, there is a list of questions you must answer and send to the organizer in order to join the swap. When you see a swap you are interested in joining, copy the form, fill it out in full, and send it to the organizer of the swap via PM (Private Message). In addition, you must post in the signup thread. The thread is a major means of communication for the organizer and the swap participants.

The Swap Guide lists the basic Swap rules that apply to all Craftster swaps, in addition each organizer may require that you post regularly in the thread.  Every swap signup has this line at the bottom from the swapstarter form
Quote
Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find other rules about participating in a swap.
  Hope this clarifies things for you! :)

I finished my large item, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I got it done faster than I thought I would thanks to spring break :) I've got a good start on the other items, but one is going to require a lot more time because I'm fairly new to the craft.

I think I'll just have to join in with the Star Trek TNG marathon :D

I am back from my long trip from the Mega Con. You would not believe how many people were dressed up so cool and 2nd.... GUESS WHAT HAPPEN TO ME! I'm still squealing like a little girl!!!!


First.. I met Dean Cain on Stage during the Q&A and he... HUGGED ME! Seriously! HE HUGGED ME! I wanted to die right then and there! I squealed so hard afterwards! We're not even supposed to touch the actors, yet he bent over and hugged me tightly! My Dreams came true! And I asked for one little Hug... Who knew getting this from your Favorite Actor would happen! I'm still squealing



Next. I got this voice Actor who does Edward Elric, Ouran High School [The Blonde Hair who is the King of Host Club], Zero from Vampire Knight. He signed both my DVD Seasons and when he found out I picked him over the Famous William Riker to get his autograph, he leaped over the Table and pulled me into a REAL Tight Hug, I even got a free photo with him! He used his Zero's voice and whispered in my ear "I will always be there for you"  I melted right then and there. I wanted to kidnap him! What girl would not faint, hearing him say "I will always be there for you"? His name is Vic Mog...Can't spell his last name



Also! Here's me and my Mom in our TNG/DS9 Outfit! I just need a phaser xD


Also! You won't believe who I met afterwards!

Ok, that's just mean. XD

That being said, I think I've at least purchased all the supplies that I'll need.


And RikaHeart - you're killing me here!!!! Vic is awesome and I'm so glad that you were able to meet him and get such an awesome response :) I'm happy for you and I wasn't even there!!

Crafty news:
I've got 2 items finished. Have the supplies for item #4 and will be working diligently on #3 tonight at my knit nite (although it may NOT necessarily be knitting  :D :D :D).

hehe Thanks! I was so happy!

Also! We saw Scotty's look alike! He keeps hitting on my mom! Here he is with me!



I'll work on putting Photos up for everyone to go through. I just uploaded a few.  It was so much fun! I can't believe I got a hug from Vic and Dean Cain, got Vic's Autograph and Roddenberry's!

The crafting frontier is going well for me right now. I've done a lot of research for one item because I've never done much of the craft, but I think I'm kind of addicted to it now. It's really relaxing. Also, I taught one of my best friends how to crochet this weekend by teaching her how to make a Tom Baker (4th doctor) scarf. I also taught my brother how to knit (don't ask) by making a Star Trek scarf. It's been a great, nerdy, week for me. That, and I know own the Hobbit movie, and my mom surprised me with tickets to see 'The Best of Both Worlds' TNG episodes when they come out in theater in April. I'm on a series nerdy high.

Also, for everyone who wasn't aware, here's the basic rule. You're required to post when you sign-up for a swap, and you're required to post weekly in the swap thread once it starts. It's to help the organizer (me) see how everyone is progressing and that no one is getting flaked on. Also, USPS no longer offers DC#'s, so you have to ask for tracking at your post office. They'll tell you what to use :) As always, feel free to let me know of any questions you have.

Keep trekking and crafting! I'm off to watch more TNG. Purely for research purposes, of course ;)

Almost finished with all of mine! One of them I'd consider a small not a medium but the rules say it counts as a medium, so awesome. I haven't really been inspired to watch TNG recently (I watched 4 episodes of Broadchurch yesterday) but I've had Star Trek on my mind!
I also watched Body of Proof and I keep imagining Jeri Ryan with her 7 of 9 implants...

Okay, small change in plans. I got the medium project done this afternoon instead of the large yet. But it was timed better to watch Doctor Who and Peter Davison's first full ep.   :o Although it feels like I'm crossing the streams...watching Doctor Who while crafting Star Trek. I made it right by watching a Wil Wheaton You Tube video while working on my small project though.   ;D

I don't think there's anything wrong with watching Doctor Who while Trekking, especially if you watch the one where Tennat does the Ta'al (Vulcan 'Live Long and Prosper' hand sign). It's pretty much the best of both worlds.

I'm thinking I'm going to need a visit from our good doctors. I'm losing my voice and I've got a nose that won't stop running. On the plus side I've finally gotten a sketch of the original Kirk I actually like. I must have sketched him twenty times by now. There's just something about his eyes I can't ever seem to capture.

Also,(This will be a TOS spoiler!!!)  I was watching 'The Trouble with Tribbles' again with my sister yesterday, and at the point where McCoy says "Almost 50% of their metabolism is geared towards reproduction." My sister commented 'So, they're like Tiger Woods."

I died laughing.

McCoy: Dialysis? What is this, the Dark Ages?

Hey! I love Doctor Who! I have a huge crush on David Tennant.. hehehe And xD I always loved McCoy, especially in that Movie! xD "What are we? In the Medevil times?" xD And matter of seconds, he cursed the lady's kidney! The doctors are baffled xD.

Happily crafting away on my big item, got a few ideas kicking around for the second.  If I had to choose a doctor to be treated by, I think I'd prefer Dr. Crusher.  She seems to have the best bedside manner, as long as you don't annoy her.

I hear you how worry can really slow down the crafty juices.

Sometimes the crafting can give your brain a brain because your focusing only on that. Papercutting crafting does that for me. It's my meditation.

Crafting news:
The new thing I tried...or was going to try....didn't quite work out. I think the _____ I was going to use was the problem.
Luckily, the first step didn't affect the _____ so I could try a more familiar technique.

I'm curious if there's going to be a Trek Team for the Summer Nerd Games pinkleo is starting....
 ;)

EEK!
Yesterday, I posted this:


Crafting news:
The new thing I tried...or was going to try....didn't quite work out. I think the _____ I was going to use was the problem.
Luckily, the first step didn't affect the _____ so I could try a more familiar technique.


The _____ is finished and this morning threw it in the wash.
ALONG WITH AN UNKNOWN DIAPER WHICH DH NEVER TOOK OUT OF THE PJ BOTTOMS....!!!!

There's gel pellets all over everything. Grrrrr.  >:(

Last time this happened, yes he's "forgotten" more than once but not anytime recently, I dried as usual and all the gooey sticky gel pellets magically fell off and went out the dryer vent.

Please, everyone cross your fingers and toes that in 30 minutes (after the dryer is done) everything comes out.
 :P :-\ :-\ :-\ :P

Sending thoughts your way, Rika. silentblair, that sounds horrible! Here's hoping it works!

Also, has anyone ever bought a pattern from the trek store? I've heard rumors that they're not that good but I'm hoping it's not true. I need a pattern for the uniform they wear in First Contact....

Also, on that note, happy first contact day my fellow Trekkies.

Happy First Contact Day to you too!

Update on the diaper drama...
The dryer did the trick!
I want to say 98% of the sticky gel pellets dried up and fell away as they should in the lint trap.
The other 2% can be shaved off with a disposable razor.
A little perseverance goes a LONG way!

Whew!

So far I have crafted during Doctor Who, Haven, Pride & Prejudice, TNG, Sherlock, Voyager, & Enterprise for this swap.  My nine year old is now asking me about warp mechanics & replicators, and having dreams of creating holo-novels....kinda afraid he might become Reginald Barclay....not that it would be so bad ;)  Oh, and he has decided that the Doctor (Doctor Who) is actually a Q that can't remember his true identity. ::)

Thought I'd do a quick update. I have finished one large, and working on a small that needs a little bit of detail work. So many ideas keep coming to me that I want to make everything.

Almost finished with my items! Had some problems with my clay last night  >:( (I really need to find a more airtight way to store it...I also maybe need to buy a clay softener) but hopefully I'll be finishing up today! If we ever get to the craft store, that is.

One week till send-outs everybody! Let me know if you're going to need extra time. I'm excited to see what everyone makes :). Also, I just found a copy of 'Star' doing a Star Trek collector edition. I had no idea they were doing it. I just needed to pick up some milk from the grocery store. I might have squealed a whee bit.

I'm thinking that's a cool kid who's conversations I wouldn't mind eavesdropping on while carpooling.
They come up with the most awesome stuff! I had a kid in the car say "My book has a map in the front of it."
Another replies, "That's how you know it's going to be a good one!".

Sometimes I feel comforted in the parentage of my kids' cohorts!

Crafty news:
I'm finishing up what I think may be the last item today!!!
I really had to stop myself from doing everything on my brainstorm list. Otherwise, the shipping would've been astronomical!!!

Completely and utterly random, but has anyone else watched this?

http://youtu.be/fNSnOZc9j3w
"Call Me Maybe" with Star Trek: The Next Generation

I'm pretty sure I had this on repeat for awhile laughing hysterically when it first came out months ago. (The best parts are Worf "I missed you so bad", "and this is CRAZY!", and pretty much any time Q shows up)

I may be late on sending.... May need another week to finish my larges... My dad hasn't gotten better yet...and trying to assure myself that it wasn't anything serious.... Mom made sure it wasn't light, it was something definitely serious causing my dad to go downhill fast... I'm struggling everyday to try and cry while not bursting into tears. I'm sorry, AmyLynn and RachaelD for being late. I'm trying my best...

*prays* ugh....Why not....*Cover her head* It's lung cancer....I just know it is...in probably stage 3....ugh.

RikaHeart, I'm sorry for you. Take whatever time you need for the swap. I'm not going to worry about it.

My mom has lung cancer too, but it's her liver cancer that came back again. We just found out last week.

Or any of the many scavenging races who trail warp signatures claiming what is left behind.

Managed to pop mine into transit as well.

I sent you a message about sending late. My Dad is still going down hill..in other words as my Grandma keeps talking about it in front of me [which she shouldn't] that my dad is dying from whatever is in his lungs...most likely the tumors... I'm still trying to get the package ready.

RikaHeart, don't you worry a bit. I already had you down as having contacted me that you would need more time. Still praying for you dad <3

I've set up a swap thread and I can't wait to start seeing pictures of the goodies.

Silentblair, regardless of whether or not the postal form works, I am promoting you to the rank of Captain. You've done resplendently tracking all the information down and trying to fix the delivery problems. :) A Vulcan couldn't have handled the utter madness any better.

To everyone that's about to send a package out, we have a word of advice: Include a card with the sender and receiver information in the package. (The addresses and names). If something happens to the boxes exterior (which the postal service will be extremely vague about) you will have that as a back up option so they'll still know where to send your package.

To everyone else, I'll start posting feedback soon. Please post pictures if you have them, or let me know when you're planning to send.
