I sent in and I know Im gonna think of a thousand more to add later, so Im gonna keep a list. I didn't put it on my list, cuz I didnt think of any at the time, but it would be fun to match the hero to the villain.

Post by: Noxika on March 07, 2017 04:34:56 PM
hmmm... sitting on the fence on this one. Just wondering if anyone would be willing to share what kind of crafts they were hoping to receive? I'm drawing a blank on what 'shippy items could be crafted (art is the first thing that comes to mind, and I'm not ace at that :P ) so it's making me hesitate joining....


Title: Re: 'Shipping Swap: Two hearts made one! Signup now-March 22; Sendout April 26
Post by: IsikkahJai on March 07, 2017 06:01:42 PM
Dfabbric, you're in my darling!  :-* thank you for being my first!  ;)

Noxika, art certainly comes to mind first for me as well but you can always do symbolism. Like, a stake for Buffy and fangs for Spike. You can also do monogrammed initials or crochet amigurumis/ stuffies. You can do hoopla with little pixel figures on the inside or do like a "couples" art quilt where it has their names with hearts around it. You can do quotes from both people and blend them together somehow. You can do jewelry; a charm bracelet or wire hand writing bracelet or some ATC pairings.

LOTS of things!  ;D ;D ;D


I'm not excited...not at all......

Totes okay with these suggestions! In fact, I should have included that  ::) Think I'll remedy that now... Thank you Pioneer9!


Insela, I certainly hope I can count on you to come join the fun and add some pretties to the gallery and discussion boards! ;D

I have many, many favorite characters, but really only one couple/pairing that I ship.  Terribly obsessively, too.  ;D  I'm really thinking about signing up for this though.  :)

Still dithering. I have to do lots of stuff over the next 3 weeks probably, so I'm not sure about joining the swap. :o Also trying to figure out something "medium" that's light for shipping, seing that we currently have USA and Australia in the swap (I'm in the UK). Does anyone have suggestions?

I was just telling a friend about the need for this swap. Now, to answer some questions and hope for the best.

Something with cloth maybe? TM patches with embroidered names, some little hooplas, simple screen print t-shirt, Change purse with a cute patch on it, mug rugs, no batting art quilt, a small line of bunting with screen printing, lacy cuff bracelets, felt badge set, back buttons,
Something with paper? A dictionary page with a silhouette on it in black ink like this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/87960998944180880/  Or maybe a set of note cards with some quotes from the characters? A set of 4-6 ATC collage, decoupaged cardboard heart, a mini book necklace with quotes, small hand drawn "movie poster" with the characters, black out poetry if the characters are from books https://www.pinterest.com/pin/547609635922784733/ match box "shadow box" scenes, altered altoid tins, magnet set,
Something with clay? Earring sets, necklace pendants entwining their initials, Hair accessories with character faces, a cute "date night" dinner set or hanging sewing spool set https://www.pinterest.com/pin/43347215138525538/ magnet set,


I hope that helps!! :D :D :D Need more ideas let me know! :-*

I know but I don't want to overwhelm a partner... I have it down to my 37 favorite otp's.... And I'm honestly really tempted to add an ot3.... But again, trying not to overwhelm anyone..... This is proving to be the hardest questionnaire Ive ever filled out.

 ;D ;D 37? That's awesome! I think I got mine down to under (about?) ten. But the more the merrier, right? I mean, out of that 37 surely your partner will know of a couple of couples. ;)

I'm peripherally aware of a couple of my partners from other fandom friends.  So, I think I'm pretty sure I have a solid direction.  YAY!

Nox, you and Acadian basically paired yourselves.  ;D It was strange. Most of the pairs were already paired in the inbox together  :D

To the ones who are probably gonna have a lot of research to do, I sowwy :< That's why I made y'all put where they come from cuz I knew this might be a problem. It was probably a good idea to put some well known ships with some less known on the Q's but you never know! Research might get you hooked on a new show/book series/ movie/fandom  ;) That's what happened with me and Downton Abbey..............


 GAWD DANG IT!! I forgot them too!! D:< Mary and Matthew!

             WARNING PPL: If you're going to organize a swap, make sure you don't do your Q the day of pairing! Blarrgghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

No WAY Pioneer! You're a great crafter! I've loved all my stuff from you  ;D BE CONFIDENT!!

Go get it Grimi! I'm curious what you'll be making the fabulous miss D ;)

No worries Sevs. Life, right?  ::) If only life WERE crafting...we'd all be poor but happy  :D

I'm loving my partner's list! I restricted myself to 5 on my questionnaire, otherwise I would never know where to stop. But if you're wondering Noxika, I've got more. :)

Oh, Google is a wonderful thing.  ;D  I don't know any of the couples - but I'm having fun with them all the same.  I'm just currently plagued with too many ideas.  It's a good problem to have.  <3

Um. I might be out of crafty mode for a couple days. I got a tooth knocked out by an over excited doberman pincher (I volunteer at an animal shelter) and I had to have the tooth extracted. So ahhh....I'll be up and running in a few days but for now I don't think I should be sewing or painting or anything with tylonel and codeine in my system. Unless Chr1stchan likes picasso peices  :D

Ouch! Hope you're feeling better and back up to speed soon!

Need to rework something, but hoping to send a bit early (if all goes to plan... ;) )

Oh my gosh IJ, how did that happen? I also volunteer at a shelter, though all I've gotten so far were a few nips.

I still need to do my crafty planning, but I should have time for that this weekend.

I'm suddenly very glad that the worst a dog has done is bite me...

Anyway, I'm crafting but I had to order a supply online since no store within 50 miles had what I needed XP so nothing else is being done until Wednesday when it arrives.

You ladies are truckin' right along! I'm so happy to hear everything is going well :) I'm doing better as well and can even chew a few soft things! hooray! Yogurt diet is bleh. Thank you for the concern and well wishes ^_^ I guess I should specify that the tooth was already mostly rotten when the dobie swung his head around and beaned me in the mouth. So it was easy for the tooth to snap in half. Unconditional love and free dental <3 

I know the medium I wanna do but I gotta find the right image. Smalls may require more rumination.

I had a good friend stop by this weekend, so not a lot of crafting got done. But he happens to be a big fan of one of my partners ships, so I got his input on somethings I made. He gave me a thumbs up :) so I'm feeling better about sending them out now. Just need to finish up a couple things and I should be good.

Devoted this weekend mainly to working on my felt twinchies (different swap), but did so while binge-watching Yuri!! on Ice, which is where one of my partner's pairings is from.

I did finally start my bigger craft today, and so far so good... Also waiting for a supply for something else in the mail...

Struggling along with mine... Oath Keeper, please don't feel the need for "wow" as I have a feeling my package to you may be a bit underwhelming :( But if you want to take your time mailing, that would be great as receiving tends to increase my anxiety when I haven't sent yet (and I probably will not be mailing for awhile).
