Title: Elvis is Alive and Living in my pants Swap (Sign-Up July 6- 30 Send Out Aug. 30)
Post by: aelphaba on July 06, 2005 08:23:00 AM
Swap name: Elvis is Alive and Living in my Pants Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Aelphaba
Sign-up date range: July 6 - July 30 NEW DATE !!!! Hopefully we'll get some of the newbies!
Date to send item by: Aug. 30 (so we have a no excuses good long time to make stuff before school starts)
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):
Nope
Non-U.S. participants allowed?
Yep
All ages allowed? Or 18+?
All ages, the King loved Little Mama's too
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES/NO
YES
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES/NO
YES

Details of swap:
Its a one stop, all Elvis, all rocking, all crafting tribute to the KING.  If it's Elvis - It's here.
I want everyone to send at least three (3) things, I don't care if you throw in some store bought goodies, or mixed Cd's but have at least one (1) handmade item because you cant really know the King until you have crafted something by your own hands. Please, this is to celebrate the man and his music, so if you find degrading Elvis funny don't sign-up, people like myself know they take Elvis to seriously and would like to help foster the image of his beauty and life not the sadness of his passing.
 
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
What Elvis phase do you like most: Young? Vegas? It wasn't his fault he was a good southern boy who thought he had to listen to his doctors?   
Clothing sizes (neck, arms, tee-shirts):
Do you wear jewelry?:
Do you carry a bag?:
Can you take pic's of what you made (if not, let me know so I can try to match you with someone who can.):
Fav. Elvis song:
Fav. Elvis movie:
Anything Else you want your partner to know about your love for the King?:
Anything you don't want (color, don't wear earrings, no more magnets)?:

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

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

NO WAY! I have wanted an Elvis themed bathroom since I was like 17 and lived in my parents house, and I kept telling people this was my vision, and they looked at me like I was insane.  Total props for actually HAVING an Elvis themed bathroom! YOU ROCK!

Post by: craftysunday on July 09, 2005 04:24:10 PM
well, thanks! it's constantly a work in progress...

i used to get funny looks, too, when i'd talk about my 'vision', but sometimes you just have to let the criticts be a tiny voice and not an over powering one. hehe.

that's my motivational speech for the day!

Well, I already had a few ideas and then executed them as soon as I got my partner, so I have a bit of a head start. BUT, started repainting my craft room so I guess I am done until I finish that, since it would be really hard finding the space and stuff! So, I am a bit stuck for about a week....I HOPE!

I spent a week brainstorming while being rather busy.  Now I have plenty of free time.  I'm almost finished with one thing, hoorah.  I have so many ideas, its hard to focus.  haha! 

I'm dying to see all the Elvis inspired crafties.

I hope the 16th passed you all well. I know I certainly took a moment to mourn.
Im back from Maine, where oddly enough the King was supposed to play right after he passed. My father had tickets to see him in Portland but alas it wasnt to be.
