A Game of Thrones swap

Hey all! This is a swap for anyone who enjoys Game of Thrones, whether just watching it on T.V. or reading the books or both! Are you a Wolf, Stag, or Lion? Maybe a Rose, Kraken, or Flayed Man? Do you no longer belong to a House? Do you live in the Godswood? Maybe you are Dothraki? Are you destined to conquer? Are you worthy to sit on the throne of swords?

Swap name: A Game of Thrones swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Audania1
Sign-up date range: June 26, 2014 - July 9, 2014
Date to send item by: August 9, 2014

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 25 (but if someone offers to co-organize, then there wonít be a limit)

This is for a 4 point swap. You must do either one medium or one large item and the rest is up to you. If you choose to do extras, please please please talk to your partner!! Nobody likes to feel inadequate if they do the requirements and then get exploded all over. While it was meant in kindness and to bless the other person, sometimes you can feel like you didnít do enough even if the other person never intended for that to happen. So, please, talk you your partner.

Sign ups are from June 26 until July 9. Send outs will be August 9, 2014.

Communication is a big deal! If you can't post in the thread once a week then this swap is not for you. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the computer for longer than a week, please just let me know. I do realize there are circumstances where it prevents a person from being able to post but just send me a message and it will all work out.

Also, letís keep this FLAKE FREE! Nobody likes to work their butt off creating something awesome and then not get anything in return. I will send out for an Angel if I have to, but please donít make me.

Here are links to the other galleries for some ideas:

I've just started stenciling my own shirts! I bought some fabric medium that I add to acrylic paint to make it act like fabric paint, and I love the results. Working on my 4th shirt now. Also, I've been dying to make a GOT shirt!!  :D

Arghhh... I've been waiting so long for this swap, and now it's opened right when my grad school semester starts! I'll be at the residency portion of my low-res program July 7-18, but am trying to tell myself that 4 points is nothing and I can manage it no problem once I get back (yay for long crafting periods). Another part of me is saying nooo, don't do that to yourself. Either way, I'm working on my questionnaire... we'll see if it actually gets sent in :)

I know how you feel. I've two kids (7 and 4) and we just bought a house. We will be moving right in the middle of the swap! I'm also in the Middle Earth Swap. I'm wrapping that one up this week but I always do this to myself! "Why?!!!" Oh right. Because I love it and can't stop myself lol. It's only 4 points.... Join us.... This is the swap you are looking for.....  lol  ;D

I sort of cheated on the questionnaire and said "Anything Tyrion says" for quotes (And Syrio)

Post by: IsikkahJai on July 02, 2014 01:18:07 PM
BAAHAHAH Averia!! Good plan  :D 

And you know what? I've decided quite suddenly that I kinda LIKE the Hound. I mean...I know he is kinda bad ass and....well a killer....but he didn't hurt Sansa OR Arya. He PROTECTED them. His moral compass doesn't point north by any means. But I like him!!

*comment altered for DERP moment assuming everyone has watched Season 4* : :-X  :-X

annnnnnnnd I'm signed up....... I hope ;D


Title: Re: A Game of Thrones Swap
Post by: Alittlemusthave on July 02, 2014 04:18:56 PM
Oh okay I give in. I am going to fill my last crafting spot with this one! Yah, I'll send in my Q to you shortly Audrey.


Title: Re: A Game of Thrones Swap
Post by: Averia on July 02, 2014 08:20:57 PM
Kinda like the hound? Really? I fell madly in love with him in book 1 and I'm about halfway through book 5 and I still love him... Please no one even try to tell me he is dead. I will not believe you.  >:( >:( >:(

(also love Loki, Severus Snape, Mr Darcy, Dr. House and Heathcliff. Something about sarcastic, damaged, highly competent men just does it for me)


Title: Re: A Game of Thrones Swap
Post by: Audania1 on July 03, 2014 12:18:31 AM
Welcome everyone! I'm so excited to see that so many people are in for this swap!  :D


Just a friendly reminder, some of us haven't seen season 4 yet. I've read the books so I know what happens but some peeps have only seen up to season 3 (thanks for telling me in the questionairres!) and we don't want the mega-spoilers. Little ones are probably fine, but not the biggies lol.

Do we really have a week to go? Goodness. Feels like its creeping along.... lol

So here is a question just to get some discussion going: What did you guys think of Lysa Tully (Lysa Arryn) when she first came on the scene in season (or book) 1? 


Title: Re: A Game of Thrones Swap
Post by: milkeway on July 03, 2014 01:16:04 PM
BAHHH I just finished Season 4's finale. That was intense! I haven't read the books yet so it was a complete surprise! I'll need to mull over this for a few hours then I'll send in my questionnaire.

As for Lysa, I thought she was very strange/not quite right, and knowing what I know now (no spoilers!) definitely confirm those feelings


Title: Re: A Game of Thrones Swap
Post by: silentblair on July 03, 2014 02:18:04 PM
I envy you a bit having not read the books milkway, everything is a crazy surprise!

Speaking of surprises...

I was having myself a mini-Simon Pegg-marathon today and it super surprised me to see Sandor in Hot Fuzz!
Sure, they put some crazy teeth on him but his Cleganeness shined right through!

Oh that Lysa, so unstable for sooo long. When I first "met" her at the Eyrie I was of the impression of a little sister who had voodoo dolls as friends.

And yeah.....I like the damaged men too Ave  ::) Snape, Darcy, Loki...oh yeah...all of them  :D

Post by: Averia on July 03, 2014 03:41:39 PM
I'm not done reading the books and I only watched season one... I just didn't want anyone to let me know if he does die for certain. it seems like everyone dies :( then again, so many people who die end up not dead... weird.

Post by: IsikkahJai on July 04, 2014 09:35:52 AM
haaahahahhahaa I KNOW right?! xD Well, the threat ARE the white walkers and they're like zombies so makes sense that ppl don't stay dead..... it's kind of a theme in Game of Thrones lol.

Post by: milkeway on July 04, 2014 02:11:42 PM

Hope this link works...

Which Game if Thrones character would you date?

I got The Hound!!!

Post by: milkeway on July 04, 2014 09:18:05 PM
Haha I also got the Hound! I felt weird about selecting "it happens" to the question about a murderous date, but honestly who hasn't killed someone in Westeros?! I also loved the question about Joffrey!

Thanks for sharing the quiz!

*pokes swap thoughtfully*  I'm intrigued by this, but not sure yet if I'll join - I've not done a swap before.  The timing's kind of awkward because my sister's baby is due some time in August and I imagine things'll be pretty hectic around here then.  But I shall be watching, o yes!  :)

Did the quiz and not too upset to say I got Jon Snow!!
Heh, I got Jon too.  I 'unno though - he can be a bit wet at times...

Amazon_Warrior, you should join. It's going to be amazing!! I'm crafting for my nieces birthday next weekend and I'm in the middle of moving our family into a house and you should definitely join! lol

I'll give it a think.  :)  There's still a couple more days to sign up, right?  I'm just keenly aware that I have some personal projects I *need* to finish off (including my sister's horribly late wedding quilt and probably a baby quilt that's not even started yet!) - I am terrible for accreting projects!  XD

haha I totally hear you :).
And, yes, I'm not closing up shop for a few more days yet. In my personal life I'm terribly horrible about starting projects and not finishing them. When I craft for swaps I'm really good at starting and FINISHING everything lol. As it stand, I probably have 20 or more unfinished items that need finishing. This swap will be my last one for at least a few months. And I'm not allowed to start any new project until I knock about half of the old ones out lol

baahahha I got John Snow too!!!!!  ;D He goes for red heads too, which I am  ;)

I'm almost worried that I put too LITTLE information on my questionnaire. I felt that if I listed only a couple things that the grand scope of my love of Game of Thrones would be limited to JUST THOSE. So I hope my partner is chatty and likes to ask questions  ;D

lolol! Too funny!  I get a huge thrill out of starting a new project but then something happens and I have to put it down. Then, when I start it again, the thrill has usually fizzled and it takes a while to get the excitement back. Alas!



And I'm a red-head now too. From a box. lol

Ever since I sent in my questionnaire I've become more obsessed with Jaqen H'Ghar.  I think I spelled his name wrong, either here or on my questionnaire woopsie. There's not a ton out there about him though :(.
I started liking the Hound too, but it took a respectable amount of time to do so....I'm some-what of a lady after all.  I was all conflicted inside when my feelings got a little mushy for The Hound and Drogo, I mean dang.....I can forgive but I can't ever forget :).

I'm so excited for this swap, it's gonna be fuuuuun!

BAHAHHA YES!! This swap IS 20% more awesome now!!

I COMPLETELY AGREE with the ladies about starting projects and fizzing out  :-\ I rarely finish anything I set out to make for my friends/family >.<

There's only one big spoiler on my questionnaire...but I hope it's a welcomed one >:D

Hi all! I'm gonna keep it open until midnight since I've had a few p.m.s requesting it. I'm so excited tho!

Oh! And if it looks like we have an odd number of people, would anybody mind doing a round robin with me? It's ok if nobody wants to bc I can just craft for myself lol  ;)

So excited! I'm doing preliminary pairing so I can just send them all out when I close up shop :)

BUAAHAHHHA XD Organizer privilege  8) love it. I (shamefully) haven't even pinned ONE GoT thing at all x.x I'm hoping blair will take a second look over at my pinterest later and look for the up and coming board cuz I plan on doing NOTHING for a whole hour but pin GoT things  :D that's gonna be my Mommy time for today  ;D

The only thing I really reallllyyyyyy want is something with Dany and Khal Drogo together in it. Whether it be art, amis, or jewelry pendant doesn't matter  :D I want to immortalize them on my inspiration wall some how <3

I'm actually thankful I watched the show before reading the books. I picked up the first one for a dollar at my library book store and I dove in head first. LOVE IT! Every word so far  :D Can you believe the series was copyrighted in 1996? it took almost ten years for the books to become popular :X


Title: Re: A Game of Thrones Swap (SU to July 9; SO August 9/14)
Post by: silentblair on July 12, 2014 07:27:58 AM
But it *is* becoming popular! YAY!

My somewhat prissy cousin now reads them because of the show, and I feel like I have more to talk to her about.
Thank you GOT!

I started and item yesterday, but still mostly brainstorming.  ;)

I have absolutely one item I MUST make because it's perfect. I need to order supplies next week. Then in the mean time, figure out something I can make with all my tons and tons of supplies here  :D ::)

Lots of brainstorming here as well, and possibly going for a supply run today!  And.. HONK! :P

Post by: Audania1 on July 12, 2014 09:44:30 AM
So I've totally gotten a ton of ideas written down and one of them I can start now. Sadly, I have had to box up all of my crafting supplies except for the ones for this particular project. I may be kind of AWOL over the next 4 or 5 days because we bought a house (Woohoo!!) and I really need to bunker down and clean our old apartment so I can get our deposit back (hopefully).
I always have anxiety when I need to make big phone calls, too (issues with phone company, moving our cable to the new place, and then the biggest is getting the money over to the mortgage company!) so this will help calm me down. Ugh. Just thinking about all of those important phone calls is making my heart beat faster. Sheesh!!

Yay partners!!!! I'm brainstorming, but haven't had time to fully sit down and commit to ideas - all my energy was focused on my little brother's birthday party today. *That* was exhausting! I'm really in the mood to read the first book, so maybe that'll get my brain juices flowing

And, good luck Audania with your new house!!

Post by: pioneer9 on July 14, 2014 11:15:16 AM
I know what I want to make as the bigger item... just need to get home to actually start! (It's going to be awesome if I can actually pull it off!) I did pick up something tiny at a little shop near my college; I might try to do something with it or else send it along as an extra.

So, so funny!!

Short story: The night I closed sign ups was a super late night for me. I finished pairing and sent them off and then looked around online for things to add to my pinterest. Well.... that video came up and, since I was beyond overly tired, I started busting up laughing out loud. I kid you not, I laughed so much and so loud I woke the kids up at 1 am!

Audania1, I'm super sorry you're kids woke up...
But I'm not sorry for the video causing you to laugh so hard!

I finally finished my first item.
Sunday was spent eeking out the _______, then I made a huge error and had to do the ____ ____ twice!

I'm going on vacation to LegoLand in KC until Wednesday, and have a ____ all ready to work on during the trip.

I have been working on a super exciting thing for the past few days. I'm so in love with the idea I'm making one for me too. :) I'm going to pick up some of the components tomorrow and hopefully get the bulk of phase two of the project all done. Eeeeeee. Can't handle it. I've already shown my in-progress pics to all my work chums. They think it's cool too. :D

Finished some tinies, and made some progress on the large after a long afternoon of frustration over a product malfunction :( I want to do the last complicated part of the large tonight, and then it should be smooth sailing after that (hopefully!).

Well I am kind of bummed....I had a pretty large project that I am so excited to make for my partner...but it's turned into way more than I expected.  I've been working on it for almost a week now and I can't even complete one of its many parts, it's taking way more time than I thought so I'm going to give it a few more days and see if I can make more progress...if not, I'm already coming up with a plan B on how to implement the part that I've already spent so much time on and then I have other ideas that I know I can get done.  I've never had this sort of issue, but I think it's because I reaaalllly want to make this so it's hard to give up on it.  Cross your fingers for me :)

Well i hate it... So now its a cat toy. Lol.

Starting over on the MED craft today, it shouldn't take long to assemble sending as making the pattern was the hardest part. Just goes to show that you should never trust material you've never used when your material is available.

btw, sorta off topic, but omg the chaos in my house is really affecting my ability to craft. Here's a shot of my kitchen & family room at the moment. I'm also missing the lavatory, and floor in the hallway.

Har, har. No kitchen = pizza/dinner out...more time to craft. the lav...well, that is a pain in the butt {pun intended}
But it looks like you are on to bigger and better things there. Remodeling stinks, but is so fun when you get things finally {sort of} settled. Good luck to you on your adventure.
