Title: Make-a-Friend Round 10: CLOSED!
Post by: RebelTrendsetter on June 09, 2013 01:25:20 PM


The Basics
Quote
This swap is organized with the intention that you will make a true Craftster friend. This is not just about sending and receiving amazing hand crafted items. It is about getting to know your swap partner, learning about them and learning from them. We hope that you make a lasting bond and can be true Crafty BFFs.

This swap is ran by the main organizer, RebelTrendsetter, along with multiple co-organizers. Once sign ups close, you will be assigned a group. Each group is managed by a different co-organizer. You will be notified as to who your organizer is at the same time you are notified as to who your partner will be for the swap.  That will be your group organizer and you will send all messages to that organizer. As a way to keep from cluttering the inbox, please do not message RebelTrendsetter unless she is your group organizer OR you have a problem with your organizer.

I have been wanting to do this swap for a long time. I will set aside some time in the next day or two to fill out all the info.

This sounds like a lot of fun, but also a huge/long commitment. I will join the list of people that will just be thinking about it for now.

This looks like fun!  Maybe once I receive feedback from one of my current swaps, I'll make this my one Summer swap. I really have to take a break from being signed up from 5 swaps at a time so I can start getting stuff done around the house! Plus, my girls are off for Summer and I want to craft with them too.  :D

Going to sit down with my calendar and make sure I have the time to commit to each of the packages. We just bought a house, have a toddler and a puppy and I am currently growing baby number 2 so I'm a busy woman. :)

It's nice to see that there is still so much interest in this swap! ;D FYI- this swap is officially OPEN for sign ups! I will try to update the participants list every other day but please bare with me! I'm currently working as a Barista at a coffee shop and my usual shift starts at 5am so my sleep/wake schedule is very hard to work around. Thanks in advance for your understanding! :)

I've loved this swap the 2 times I've been in it. We are buying a house and I don't know if I have the time/money to commit to it, but the timing is so long so maybe it will work out. There is a lot of work to do on that house, though... WANNA SEE IT?! (http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/910-N-Lea-Ave_Roswell_NM_88201_M28979-85852?row=2) But maybe I can do this. Hm, maybe if someone wants to be my partner I will sign up with them. And forgo participating in the OPS for the rest of the year! Or maybe not because I really want people in the OPS to claim me for kids' party stuffs... we'll see! I'll hang around just to chat, how's that?

HOLY COW!!!!!! 225,000 buys you a MASSIVE amount of sq ft in NM!!!!! I definitely live in the wrong state. LOL!!  Congrats on the awesome house!! I have a little bit of sq ft envy, for sure!! I paid almost as much for my house.....and I only have 1660 sq ft!! 


I am pretty excited about this swap.  I'm working on my q's now!

im considering this swap too,not sure if ican commit either ;)  but WOW jexxican congrats on the house...  a house like that costs more than triple where we live!!!  wow!! looks gorgeous too!!  i'll keep stalking the swap tho - i'm a little confused. Do we send packages about us the sender or about the person we will be sending to? :)

Post by: jexxican on June 12, 2013 11:35:13 AM
Yeah, that house was going for like 380K a few years ago, but apparently nobody else wanted a pool or a house that would need this much work so we got it for cheap. We talked it down to 210K, but we have over 50K work to do on it before me move in.  Most houses in our price range don't have anywhere near that square footage OR yard space. It's technically on 5 1/2 lots!

Ninaprettyballerina, the first package is about you the sender and the 2nd and 3rd packages are about the recipient your partner. It's a really fun swap! Oooh, I want to join but I know I probably shouldn't.... Oooh... someone talk me out of it. Or into it, if you wish. Just make up my mind for me!

OMG.  That house = AMAZING.  Super jealous!  I really (REALLY) want to do this swap too.  So I probably will!  I am only in one swap at the moment - but I like to only do one swap at a time. I love that the sign up time is so long for this one.  I am going to try to finish up what I am working on and sign up as soon as I have sent!

That house is beautiful!  I paid $5000 for my house 4 years ago, but it still needs some work. ;) It's nowhere near the awesomeness of that house though!  Congratulations! Buying a house is a huge happy stressful time!

I am totally going to join this swap as soon as I have a spot! I have my questionnaire filled out and ready to go! Just waiting for packages to arrive...

Love that house...but I had to laugh, I bought a house recently and it is about 560 sq ft....(OK it was very cheap) but it would fit into your new house 10 times over!!

Oh I am so on the fence with this swap and I've only got a few days to decide!!!  I loved everything in the other swap galleries but I always get fearful at the thought of a large item.... then I look at some of the things I send and know that they would really be larges if I gave myself more credit than I do....

*sigh* which I could get off the fence...
anyone wanna make friends with someone who makes raku pottery?

I'm still on the fence.  Would anybody like to receive maybe artwork, stuffed animals, embroidery, maybe some jewelry or sculpture?   I would like to paired up w/somebody who can knit and crochet.  There are some knitted and crocheted stuffed animals I would like to receive, as I don't knit or crochet.  And, I collect knitted and crocheted stuffed animals.  Any takers?

I have always been curious about this one!  Going to fill out my info and send it in this afternoon.  I have had the pleasure of swapping with so many of you lovely ladies in the past! 

I too am a bit nervous about the "large" since I don't think anything I do is ever in that category!  Even though I know for a fact some of the thing I embroider take over two hours.  They just don't seem large to me!

;D Awesome pants. I'm already scheming what to take out of my desk from work. I know the perfect thing... I will just have to convince myself that I really don't need all three of the ones that I have. It's not like I use more than one at a time! I also found something adorable that I made during my ski trip in March that I have no purpose for, but it fits on of the things about me! I might re-make it though, just for funsies.

I'm going to make more some stuff this Friday at my meetup :)

I am half way done with the first package, but I have a feeling that I may continuously add to it, since that is just how I am...  :-[

I take in to consideration several aspects of your questionnaire including where you live, if you are willing to ship internationally, allergies/allergens, what you like to craft, crafts you want to learn, and some of your favorites so that you are paired with someone who either has a lot in common with you and/or who seems as though they can teach you some new things. :)

We are putting our house up for sale so this weekend was zero crafting and all work. I will probably have to work on it all day tomorrow but then Im all clear to craft.

It's proving difficult for me to work on the first package.  I am not used to applying these things to myself rather than my partner!

DUDE! I am having the same problem! My husband says I am overthinking it. I told him that he's not the boss of me  :D. It is a lot harder than I thought.

Same here! It has to be about me, but it still has to be something my partner would like to receive.  Hmmmm....

Lol! It sounds like we are all in the same boat.  :)
I did craft 1 item today that I am pleased with and have an idea for another. Then it is back to the list.
I am trying to chose things that tell something about me, but that my partner would want as well. I was checking out my partner's Pinterest boards this morning and that lead to a couple hours browsing pins and adding a bunch to my own boards.  Gotta love Pinterest!  :)

My partner and I like a lot of the same things, thank goodness.  Plus, I'm making a lot of things for her little boy.  That also made this swap easy for me, as I'm a toy freak!

Don't worry. We are so much alike that I'm sure I'm going to love it. You may be introducing me to new interest, unless it is a scary clown. No scary clowns please :)

Sign ups for this swap are officially closed! Anyone who sent me a questionnaire has been accepted and added to the swap.
I will no longer be taking questionnaires or partner requests!
Anyone who does not have a partner will receive one later this evening. Thank you for your patience!

I can't wait for partners! I have three items in the works, and a few items set aside. I just need to finish up the items I'm working on and buy a few things and then my first package will be ready.

I also want to see my partner's likes though to see if I can personalize the package a little bit more to them (even though it's supposed to be about me).

Messaged some people about their ability to ship to certain countries, hope to have partners up once they reply.

Yes. However, since it is my fault we are starting late if anyone needs 2 extra days, you can send by the 17th and not be counted as late.

I second that!

Thank you ladies ;D

Messaged some people about their ability to ship to certain countries, hope to have partners up once they reply.

So it seems like this issue cannot be resolved since we only have one participant that is not in the U.S. and they cannot send to the U.S. Sadly that participant will have to drop this swap and because that would leave us with an odd number, I also will not be participating. However, I can now move forward with partners and you should all be hearing me within the next hour or so. Thank you for your patience!

That moment when you were trying to get ahead of schedule, then questionnaires are sent out and you realize the one thing you've finished for your package is the one thing your partner has on their "do not want" list!!  :o :D Back to the drawing board for me hehehe.

Instead of saying hi to my partner last night, I printed off her survey and headed right over to her pinterest. I have lots of notes and ideas. And as of today, I have actually touched base with her. Based off pins alone, though, I would say we are an awesome match.

Almost worth putting hubby clone in the box for the swap and having him count not only as extra large, but all three packages in one :)

I've gotten one thing for the first and second package, too many ideas for the third and just a grey gloomy rain all day yuck type day.  I'm hoping my new friend is staying dry with all the rain we are having and not in too low of an area!

I'm doing pretty decent with the first package. My only problem is I have to stop planning ahead and focus on getting THIS one done. I have all the store-bought items gathered, and now I just need to finish the crafty portion.

 I figured out my last item today and ordered something for it. I hope I have enough time for it to get here and to make it! If not I have already figured away to work it into Package 2. But then I will have to figure out another item for Package 1.  :P

Happy Tuesday!! So much crafting going on. Makes me SO curious about what you all are making.

I am working on a little project for my package 1 today. Trying to pace myself...

Package two is planned out. Package 3 is still a mystery.

I made something last night that I reeeeally want to keep. I will not be making a second though because it took way longer than it should have compared to the other thing that I wanted to keep and did make a second of. I also more than half finished something on Sunday night at my meetup group, and I am about to start another thing right now.

I haven't planned out the second package yet, but I think I know what I am doing for number 3 ;D

This is too much fun ;)

I have some things gathered and plans in place for the crafted part of this first package. Most of you in my group have already checked in and I can't believe we already have two senders!  You guys are fast!

I made great progress on package #1 today.  I think my partner will like the little things I made today.  They are CUTE!  :D  I still have a little work to do on the "local" category!  Then I'll be ready to send!

I definitely have lists for round 1, and it shouldn't take super duper as long as my son cooperates for shopping!

Round two I have vague ideas for... I am sure it will become more clear once I have round 1 out of the way.

I keep changing my mind about what I want to send for package one!! I'm sure I'm not the only one, but so many things can fit in multiple categories!!!! So then I change my mind and decide I need to send something else to fit better :)

So I've been stalking my partner EdelC and I see on her pinterest page this 'I Love You' collage.  It's a bunch of letters in different fonts and colors cut out from magazines, newpapers, ads, etc.  Really neat. 

I think to myself, that would be a great idea.  I can cut out all the letters and mail them as a DIY along with that modgepodge stuff.  It can be one of the eight little thingies for the first package.  It can represent me with my Reduce-Reuse-Recycle way of life.  Perfect, eh?  And I can make one for me too.

So I get my pile of papers and start cutting.  One hour later, I barely have enough letters for two lines.  Argh!  The husband is laughing at me, "I told you so."  I still have about 30 lines left.  That's another 15 hours of cutting, I'm guessing.  My fingers are hurting and so is my right foot.  My right foot?  What's going on with my right foot?  I look down and have a magazine staple sticking out of my right foot.  When was my last tetnus shot? 

Let's just say that the REUSE has turned into RECYCLE.  I can't tell you how many of my projects end up this way  ::)

Oh no wise one! I hope the next project goes better for you!!!

I made a stop at good old Walmart on my way to work and purchased the last few things I need for package one.  I am going to be shipping it out on Friday

I've got all 3 packages finished.  I'll be shipping all 3 either tomorrow, or on the 15th.  Depends on how much the other 2 packages I have to ship tomorrow cost me.

I am at the lake on vacation for 11 days.  So far no crafting just fishing, reading and relaxation.  Much needed as the last few months of my life have been 60 plus hours of work each week.  I did manage to get started before I left home and brought 1 project with me.  Plans are to take a trip into some antique shops one day next week so I hope to score an item of something that I collect to send along in package 1.  Package one will not be sent until I return home, so close to the first deadline date!

Thanks to the PO, I won't be shipping until the 15th.  The PO is now on my sh*t list.  Don't ever make a mistake w/them, they will make you pay out the wazoo!  Something that should have cost me: $7.17 to ship, ended up costing me $12 and some change to ship, because they had to ship it twice!

I am still chugging along. I have been in a crocheting mood lately, I just need to break that and dabble in a few of my other favorites to get my package on it's way.  I am most likely going to ship on the 15th, just because I want to make sure everything is just right.  ;)

Edel - I had to look idolence up.  Harha.  You can send me 8 fabric scrap'ums and I'd be thrilled!  I'm done with 3 of 8.  I live in the land of liberal and it's hard to remember to be politically correct.  I'm so uncorrect or is that incorrect?  I guess I can always go over and get some munnys from kidrobot for the local theme.  They're safe, or are they?

I wanted to get it on its way today because Gozer has a vacation coming up.

Package 2 is about half done. But I have time...Im not going to rush it. I want to leave time for new inspiration to hit me.

I should be good to send by the deadline, thank goodness.

Yay!

1) Got a package I had ordered for this swap (I was getting worried it wouldn't arrive before I had to send out the first package)!

2) Was super tired when I got home but decided to do a little crafting which turned into a lot of crafting and a ton of fun exciting progress on package 1 and 2.

Good night for me!  ;D

I got package one all packed up and ready to ship today!  Just hope work cooperates so I can escape at lunchtime to run to the post office.  I had fun picking out and making items that represented me while trying to also make the item something my partner might want.  I think in at least for a couple of the items I hit the nail on the head  ;D At least I think so. For one item I made 2 - one for me :)

I already know what I am making for package 2 and plan to start it tomorrow night at my craft meetup. 

Package 3 I have an idea what I would like to do.  I need to make sure I can find everything I need and plan it out instead of jumping in and just winging it like I am prone to doing!

I've finished making 5 items for package one and I have 2 non-crafted items. I have one more things I need to find supplies for, but I have it all planned out. The last thing won't take long once I find the right things to use, but I will probably wrap it all up over the weekend and send on Monday, too.

I need to figure out what I am doing for package 2. I have one idea, but I feel like it might be too small and I don't know where to get one of the parts. I still need to figure out the other half of package 2 also.

Craft meetup sounds like so much fun, esp those that are all crafts :)  A friend of mine does that but its on the one day I have class so I don't really get to go.  Talked to a few friends but everyone is always buzy at the last min or didn't really make plans to go ("oh, you were serious?")

Maybe I just need to look harder and climb out from under my own rock..... but at least its a pretty and sparkley rock ;)

Do we still have the same timeline for sending?

Should I be working on the about me package now so I can get everything done by the 15th?

Yes. However, since it is my fault we are starting late if anyone needs 2 extra days, you can send by the 17th and not be counted as late.

I may need the extra day or two!  :(   I've still got a supply package that hasn't arrived for one of my 'Craft it' items and it was scheduled to be delivered today.  If it doesn't show today than it should arrive on Monday.  I may be able to still ship on Monday the 15th though even so.

Yes, this shows you how well I read and retain....

I knew we had extra days but then the blond kicked in and I forgot we had those days.  So lucky for me I was able to come home early and I have my mental list to get everything into a box. Go to confirm that there was nothing I forgot and figure I would post and *bam*  two extra days.

so I'll attempt to be on time unless I get lazy and/or overthink box one.

Finished two more items tonight! I want to do a bit more, so I may take advantage of the two extra days... I only have this week to train my replacement before starting my new job next Monday. I am a tad overwhelmed! :D  It's happy stress though.  So I can't complain.  :D

I hope you like everything PerfectlyBohemian. I hope that even though everything is themed around me, that I picked things that will at least be useful to you. <3

I'm taking advantage of the two extra days because I was taking care of my injured kitty all weekend. She jumped a baby gate and landed wrong so she has been limping all weekend. :( My package will definitely be out by Wednesday.

I Have the details and materials in mind for package two...but I am finishing up Hippy Swap first. Then it will be time to start finishing package two. I have already finished a medium for it. Lots of fun smalls planned and some materials and extras. :D Im really looking forward to the making.

My little one is turning 4 on Sunday. :)

In the meantime, I'm playing with my art supplies and having a blast.  Gonna make me a BIG painting!

Checking in. Making serious headway on package 3, with no idea what to do for package 2. Somehow my phone camera fixed itself, so I will take some pics of my first package and post them soon. Bad swapper.

I'm super close to being done with my crafted item for package 2. I made one "thing" then decided that I wanted to do something different, so now I feel like everything is coming together last minute! But I will be able to mail this package on time, so all is good :)

Im in Texas!!! All comfy and staying with relatives while we houseshop.

I will be crafting for the first time since the move tonight and I am optimistic that I will be shipping in about two days!! Its really weird not knowing where my nearest craft stores are. Really weird. LOL

Just got back from a road trip this afternoon. I will be sending Kittykill's package #2 tomorrow! I was able to finish the medium during the ride.

 I finished up package #2 but wanted to tweak a couple little things. I have it setting out in the kitchen so I can do drive-by's of it. LOL! Now the problem is how to ship it.... Hmmm. I will come up with something.  ;)
 Spent Sunday working on Package #3. Something I am used to but very different for me.
 Like my partner, I will be moving during this swap. Kind of unexpected for me. I thought I was going to be moving a couple months later but we just found "the house" and had to go ahead and do it. It's my first house and it's sort of stressful. Doing these projects is my relax time.  ;D

My 2nd package is all wrapped up and ready to go.  I should be shipping it out tomorrow.  Inspiration finally hit for package 3 and I have ordered some supplies.  It is going to end up being a "themed" package and I am so excited!!!!

Post by: pjr107 on August 12, 2013 06:54:53 PM
Package 2 is just about ready, package 3 is in progess and everything is on hold while my SIL visits and I finish up another swap.

Need more time in my day!!!

My medium craft for round 2 is turning into a large... I guess that's what happens when you make up the pattern as you go. On the plus side, I know what round 3's large will be. On the negative, my plan for round two needs a quick change!

Package 2 will be headed out this weekend.  Then onto crafting for #3.  I am ready to pack and send just need some free time.  Working 12 hour days is the pits right now since all I really want to do is craft!

Okay, I think I am going to start over with package 2 and include everything I've done so far with package 3. So, that one might seem a bit over the top, but I really want to send everything as one package. It will make perfect sense when you see it.

Man how did the last two weeks just fly by? I'm sorry I haven't been around. I'm using this weekend to make sure everything is perfect to send out on Monday. Also:

If you are on my team I just finished modifying the sent/received lists that should have been done forever ago. (I'm sorry) Please let me know if I need to correct something. Thanks!



Happy Belated Birthday Beunruffled!

Thanks sweet friend!!

I went to the post office on Friday to mail out my package, and guess what...


My post office is CLOSED!!

Not just closed for the weekend.

I'm talking boxes, lights off, for sale sign on the front lawn!!

So I will have to make a trip to the big city (read: Little Rock [ha!]), and send out on Monday!

Hope no one else's post office closes down!!

Wow. I tend to mail from a nearby town rather than my own (it's two blocks from work and doesn't require me to double back into town)... but I still prefer our littler post office to the bigger one closer to work. Here's hoping it stays open too!

I mailed package two for deathbeforedishes today :) It was done since early last week, but I have had a lot going on in my life the last couples weeks. I'm starting to worry about what I'm doing with package three since I haven't settled on anything....

Really bummed that I have to send the second package late. Stupid money getting in the way. I have the package all ready, but I have to wait until I get paid again on Friday. I really hate getting paid every other week!

I have started on package 3, but I still keep debating random ideas in my head.  It's tough when a swap item takes a lot of time, but when you step back and look at it, it seems so small.  At least I have plenty of time and a totally awesome swap partner! :D

Okay, so, I started on my large for package number three two weeks ago, and even though it's taking f.o.r.e.v.e.r. it seems so small. 

I am about halfway done and I don't know what to think about it yet. Anyone else get to that point where it's getting closer to 'go time' that they panic that if what they are doing doesn't work out, that they won't have time to start something else? Maybe I should start something else now, so if what I am doing ends up being too wonky, that I have some progress into another thing. Gah! I think my weird is showing...


Title: Re: Make-a-Friend Round 10: CLOSED!
Post by: A2K on September 04, 2013 06:43:22 AM
I finished #3 this morning.  I had HUGE trouble with one item, and even though it's not my best work, it was made with heart, so it's going in the package!  :D  What you're making is probably turning out better than you think it is, dbd!  When I have anxiety over a project, I send my DD a picture and she always makes me feel better!  Find someone who loves you to bolster your crafting ego!  :D

Post by: theboywonder on September 04, 2013 03:14:40 PM
Working on #3, after a weird shipping snafu my partner received her package yesterday, so now I can calm down about that. I'm hoping that package 3 is as exciting as the other 2. I keep second guessing myself. I have some ridiculous swap anxiety, probably for no good reason!

That is almost how I felt about package 2. I spent a decent amount of time planning and making, but felt like the package was so small when I actually sent it.

For package 3, I'm actually having the opposite problem (which is good, I think). I have almost finished with what I planned to make and everything went together so fast, I feel like I might as well keep making stuff, even though what I made isn't really "small" :P dbd, you also gave me so many good ideas for package 3 that I want to make everything! I wish I had asked sooner so I could make some stuff you asked for as package 2 ;)


Title: Re: Make-a-Friend Round 10: CLOSED!
Post by: lindyv321 on September 04, 2013 04:36:13 PM
I am having the same problem with package 3!  I have to keep reminding myself that a large is considered a large based on time not size!  I have spent way more than 2 hours on it but it's just not that big and now I am kind of freaking out that's it's not enough.


Title: Re: Make-a-Friend Round 10: CLOSED!

I have been working on this large *F*O*R*E*V*E*R* and I'm at the point where I would rather make something in pottery and have to wait for it to dry and fire.

I just have to accept that there are some crafting things I am slow at and be happy that I can do it at all.

Nolansmomster, if you have send late, don't fret about it.  I'm really in no hurry to receive.  I've moved onto many, many other things.  So, I'm very busy right now, and not really on the "look out" for any packages.  :)

Great minds think alike or should I say wrong!!!!  To bad we don't live closer I could see us creating all kinds of havoc!!!!

I'm in the"thought it was the 19th"camp but I lucky happened to check the thread around the 10th and knew I couldn't finish plan a so had to go with plan b.
I think it's because of the first send out being on the 19th :)

I'm so behind... since my last-minute fail, I've ordered a new pattern which I hope with all my  hoping abilities will be here tomorrow.  If not, it should be here Wednesday at which point I can craft like the wind to have it to Miss GotGrey this weekend!  At least that's the plan...
