This is meant to be a fun, chilled out swap, so the minimum crafting requirement for this swap is 1 large, 2 Medium and 2 Small. Don't forget to communicate with your partner on how much you would like to craft for each other. Usually for this swap, people craft waaay more than the minimum requirement, so agree beforehand if you are going to spoil each other, so that no-one is left feeling embarrassed! We are also going for quality here so make sure your hippy crafts are fabulous! Remember, this is the minimum...please feel free to do more if you have time/enough creativity!

Communication is vital for an enjoyable swap! Please post in this thread at least once a week so that we can all stay in touch. Get in touch with your swap partner as soon as possible after receiving your swap info. Please keep me informed if you have a problem or have a question. I’m not a mind reader so I need you to tell me if you need something.  

Remember: The more details that you put in your questionnaire the more likely you are to receive a package you love and the easier it will be for me to match you up with someone who can make you happy.  

Another little note:
Swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
-it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
-it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Communicate often to your partner and in this thread, and I will send occasional PMs to make sure that everyone is on track. We want no flakers please!

Additionally, you *must* PM me & your partner when you send. You *must* get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally, then you must have a receipt as proof of postage -- no exceptions. And you *must* PM me & your partner when you receive. Also, please post pictures of what you received in the gallery. If you do not have access to a camera, please let your partner know so that they can take photos before they send and can post in the gallery for you. It is recommended that you take photos anyway in case things get lost in the post!    

Most important of all................ ........... HAVE FUN AND ENJOY SOME HIPPY CRAFTY-LOVE!

I'd love to do this, but not sure I can commit to a 9 point swap. Looks like I have a couple weeks to decide though.

Depends how you look at it Terri,I'm looking at it as about 8 hours crafting over a month  ;D

Post by: dharma_rebel on June 02, 2014 03:06:37 PM
Am I understanding this is a 9 point swap?

That's just how I added up a large, 2 mediums and 2 smalls. While something like that often gets made, it's awfully hard to commit to that as the minimum. It's cool. I'll be stalking the gallery, for sure.

This is why I decided to look at it as craft hours instead,my first thought was " I can't do that much!" but then realised that yeh,actually I can and do but usually as an "above & beyond" thing rather than the minimum and I know I'm not alone in this.

I'm going to try to swing this one. Hopefully I can clear up swap space to do it.

Post by: Samsara on June 03, 2014 10:31:02 PM
Yay!
I have run this as a smaller swap, but I found that most people crafted more anyway, so I thought this time I'd run it as a larger minimum


Title: Re: Hippy Swap Round 9
Post by: Kookaloo_Starr on June 04, 2014 12:26:49 PM
I can understand folks being put off by 9 points as minimum, I've had to sit out past rounds for that reason but then I realised I count mediums as small and large as medium and end up doing more than 9 points anyway  :D

Hee, I was just a little kid during the 60's, so it's more my older siblings generation-but I remember Flower Power, love beads, mushrooms, peace signs, bell bottoms were popular up through part of the 70's. My big sis would cut the seams on her jeans to insert triangles of fabric to make her own bell bottoms. Yep, showing my age!

Groovy.  ;D

Trivia time! According to 'Straight from the fridge,dad', a book of slang from the 20's through the 60's, the term groovy refers to records! Yes, the old fashioned platters with grooves.  ;D  If your music was worthy of being recorded, it was 'groovy'.
That is a *fun* little book to flip through!

I'm sorry to say that I have had to back out of this swap due to personal stuff,I will be stalking the gallery & can;t wait to see what you all make for each other  :) I'm thinking that I might just craft along with you and make myself some of the things I had on my wish list.

Are you sure we can't tempt you bookstorebabe? You could always send early, or on your travels? And maybe your partner could send to wherever you'll be staying?  ;)

Come'on everybody! Just 28 hours of sign-ups left. I'm in the UK, so I plan to close sign-ups at about teatime here :)

I've resisted and resisted- mostly paranoid about timing- but I think I'm in. I always obsessively stalk the gallery; it seems silly not to join when I actually catch the swap during sign ups! I'm off to get breakfast on the table for the family, then I'm going to fill out my questionnaire. I'm so excited that I actually caught this one in the sign up stage! ;D ;D ;D

It feels good to be home.  I've sent in my questionnaire, and am excited to once again take part in this swap.  This is the only swap where I feel like I HAVE to participate because I always enjoy it, the conversations on the page are always so friendly and welcoming, and there isn't another greater source of inspiration to get colorfully creative than this swap.  Looking forward to participating and getting to know my new partner!  Hello everyone!

Teehee! Me, too! I actually started something already. So excited! And to think, I almost passed this swap up! How ridiculous that would've been. :D

Okay, you should all have your partners by now - please let me know if you haven't! Hopefully you've all had a chance to stalk them a little so if you haven't done already, email them to say hi :) If you haven't heard from your partner within 24 hours, please let me know. We usually have a ball on this swap, so just enjoy yourself. I'd like everyone to post to the thread at least once a week so that I know you're all alive! Any problems, please let me know. Right, I've been at my mum's all evening, so I'm now off to stalk my partner....mwhahahaha!  ;D

Me too!  Hi bookstorebabe!  I am very happy to be your partner, and your pinterest is already inspiring me!  I have a feeling that I am going to be making a lot of the same items for myself too--we have very similar tastes and I'm ready to make some hippie-goodies!  We even have the same favorite color :)

I'll get started after I'm done with Comic Con this weekend.  Heh, I bought a small 'ingredient' at the craft store before the swap began, 'just in case'. That's when I knew I was going to give in and sign up. ;D

I went thrift store shopping yesterday for cost-effective supplies for the swap.  I  found a purple _______ with the perfect ______ ____s on it that I can reuse/repurpose for a _______ that I'm wanting to make for my swap partner.  Spent $2 and ended up with $20 worth of ____s.  Saved some money, got a great quality craft supply to use for this swap AND had a great time going on the "treasure hunt."

I used a ---- I'd found that was an interesting shape, been saving for a project! It...well, I suppose it's loosely inspired by a pintrist item.  ;D It isn't coming out like I saw in my head at all, and is nothing like the item I was trying to make  a version of. And now that it's almost done, I'm going...'wait...this doesn't really relate to the swap theme.' Um, recycling is very hiippyish, maybe?
Item two also has taken on a life of it's own rather than following my plan, but I'm very pleased with it.
I want to make a ----, and a ----,and maybe a ---- or a ----. One  good thing about being a packrat is not having to go to the store to craft!
Except for glue. And sealer. My god, do I use a lot of glue.

Just a quick check-in from Autun in Bourgogne France, as I pop in to wifi area - to say that I finished one item whilst dining upon local fromage and tomates and jamon whilst sleeping under the stars :)
We have a little stream that runs down the side of the mountain next to where we are "camping" which has been a great place to sit and cool my feet whilst sewing and painting.
Feels wonderful to hear the French Bells chime each morning and the little song of "bonjour Madame" from our local farmer who has brought us bread and eggs each morning upon his bicycle.
I feel so far away from the madness and busy-ness of my daily home life.
My boys are sunkissed a golden hue and my husband has given up the daily routine of shaving and is now sporting a "chilled out" shadow around his face.
Paradise is my secret garden on top of a French hillside :)

I was so proud of myself, for finishing and being able to send early, for remembering to take pictures for once-and then when I was going back to the sign up form to get my partner's address, I realized that I'd left one of the most important pieces out! So I had to cut through the tape and repack everything.  ::)
I'll be sending tomorrow.
