Details of swap:

This has been a really fun swap in the past.  It gives participants a chance to get to know more about other members of our crafty community.

The idea is to find something that you have in common with your partner, and craft to that.  Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books.  Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids.  Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run. Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.  

And we wanna hear what you have in common!  So make sure when you post your goodies in the gallery, that you share what your commonality is!  ;D

Also, don't forget that you need to post in the thread when you sign up, and drop in at least once a week, let us know you're crafting away merrily.

This swap will have a more in-depth q'naire than you might be used to, just to help get some juices flowing regarding what to share with your partner.  I realize that we are going to be sharing a lot of ourselves with total strangers, so be intelligent about what you tell them, but share as much as you feel comfortable with. The questions are mainly for guidelines, so if you feel uncomfortable answering any of them, feel free to skip those ones.

This swap will be for one medium and 2 smalls --OR-- 2 mediums.  Spoiling is allowed if agreed upon by partners.  (Of course spoiling is allowed!)  A handy dandy guide to sizes:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Send outs will be expected by July 30.  Tracking number will be required if shipping within the US.  If shipping internationally, PM me info from your receipt.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

this is shaping up to be a really fun group!  And we still have 9 more days for sign ups (yeah, I got excited and jumped the gun a little- sorry for those of you who will be waiting a bit longer for a partner  ::))!

If anyone considering this swap has someone in mind that they'd like to swap with, get them on board and I'll honor your partner request!  Just sayin'....

No worries, Snowy... lots of partner chatting is encouraged!  If you realize that there was something you wish you'd put on your q'naire, you can always let your partner know!  (I know that we more experienced swappers know that already, but since there are some newer swappers here....  ;))

Edel, you crack me up!

Everyone should be partnered.  Please PM me right away if I inadvertently missed getting you the info.  It's one of those mornings already.  ::)

The four ladies who came into this swap pre-partnered, I am assuming you all have each others' info.  IF NOT please PM me and I'll get the q's out to you.

Let the stalking begin!!

some of you may have to dig a little to find commonalities, I'm aware of this.  This includes my partnership-- not much on our q's matched up, but my partner has been digging and has already found things we didn't know we had in common!  How cool is that?  Hopefully, not too much digging will be required!  If nothing else, we are all women, so we've all got that in common, right?  LOL!

Exactly!  :D ...I read my partners questionnaire and thought "hmm doesn't look like we have much in common" But then, I browsed her Pinterest to find movies she didn't list on the questionnaire that I love.  :) I listed every movie I could think of lol

LBBB and I have been partners before, so we knew some of the things we have in common. After reading through our questionnaires we've come up with quite a few similarities more than we originally knew. Plus I had just bought fabric that made me think of her, but didn't think I'd get to use it so soon. It's always nice to learn new things about friends, so this is already a great swap no matter what we make for one another.

BTW, I'm going out-of-town again, so I'll be missing from the thread for about a week.

I wrote down a list of things I could possibly make for kbrison.  I added a few more after PMing with her.  I had started something last night, but after PMing with her, decided to go in a different direction.  I have collected all the ______ I need (I had it in stash, YEA!), and as soon as I get a minute to myself, I will start it.

It's going to be hard to choose what things I want to make, since I can't make all of them!  ;)

I've been out-of-town (again!) so haven't gotten to start on my projects yet but I made something recently that I'm going to send as an extra. We weren't in a swap together at the time, but it made me think of you, LBBB, so now it will be yours for real.

I have to put ____________ on the ___________ and then I think I may be done with the crafted part of this swap.  I want to add ________ _______ to the package and I have to wait for my money to come in to purchase it.

But I do have a small that I want to work on too and will probably add that to the package as well.

Just b/c kbrison is so awesome!  ;D :-*

I just got back from painting some __________ with my girls.  I made a small for my partner while I was there.  I got some help with it from the store owner but I think it will come out great!  I get it back next week, so we'll see.  It's something I haven't done in awhile.

DD and I had the bright idea to walk TWO MILES in this heat today! By the time we got home, we were so done, that we just sat in the only room in our apt. that has air conditioning and drank many glasses of ice water and watched tv.  Once we were cool, I finished the next to last item for kbrison's package.  I'm so pleased with how it came out.

(I'm also so pleased that my friggin brain didn't melt from walking so far in such heat!  :P)

I am 98% done with the project I was working on.  I will be able to stop at the store and pick up the extra I wanted to get today.

The extra I'm purchasing for kbrison makes me smile, b/c my beloved Grandmother liked the same thing.  It makes me think of her.  :)

Was planning to hit a fabric store (like I don't already own a ton of cottons), but checked my stash first. Hooray! I have the perfect fabric that's already been pre-washed. That means I can get started even sooner on the next project. Then a package arrived from WPlus9, so I can start on that project, too. I sometimes think I must have ADD tendencies. I love having a variety of projects in the works so I can skip from one to another when I start to get bored or frustrated.

Just checking in! I had a really long and stressful 6 day workweek this week, and am busy tonight finishing a project for my boss' baby shower tomorrow, BUT I did manage to make a run to the craft store and I got some goodies for my swaps.  8) Excited to start crafting! (for this, anyway!)

I have finished the smalls now just debating on the medium. or medium and working on smalls :-\ haven't figured it out the sizing yet, I just know they took longer then small time wise but not medium money wise :-\ hmmm... I'll figure it out once I start on next item.

I had an idea since the beginning of this swap that I was going to make as a *small* small.  But after a day of going to garage sales, I had a moment of inspiration to make something that I think will be much more appreciated.  Yea for inspiration!

Post by: kbrison on July 17, 2016 07:13:12 PM
Sounds very interesting! I love garage sales and flea markets. Wish I could have gone with you. Picked up a few small extras today as I was doing some shopping for church. They were things you've asked for in previous swaps so I hope they're things you still want.

Hows crafting going?

Im progressing. I finished my large. I have been working through some mediums and a small or two. I think I have about two more projects to complete before I send. :)

 I tried twice. I think the second one was actually worse. :'(  LOL! Its something so easy to everyone else. Completely baffles me. I'm glad your second attempt worked out Snowyangel. I may give another stab at mine but I need a little time to let the sting of that miserable fail fade some. It was embarrassingly bad.

Please don't kill me folks..... but I shipped my package out today! *dodges a flying tomato* :o
 I found some down time between my toddler and 3 month olds nap schedule to bust out some more crafts, tape up the box and got 'er done. But ofcourse with my lingering preggo brain I forgot to take pics of it all, so hopefully it arrives safe and sound.  I'm pumped for bunny1kenobi to get it. This has been such a fun swap(a favorite I think) and the things we had in common were things that are kinda rare to find imo.
