Title: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 9 (green by 11/16, send by 11/19)
Post by: GatorWrangler on October 07, 2018 09:47:58 PM
In a nut shell the sweat shoppe ornament swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 3 or 6 like ornaments, and in return you will receive 3 or 6 different ornaments. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice.

Or you may post in the sweat shoppe ornament discussion thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394576.0 ,

~ We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 3 items) or twice (for 6 items)


Please make a sample of what you are offering and post the picture on this thread before signups end so people can make their top picks list. And if you do not feel someone's offering meets swap requirements, please pm me before signups close.

Reserving this for future ornaments...

Two fawn diorama ornaments.


One doe ornament.


Three different snowman diorama ornaments - two glitter ones and one that has the snowball texture.

This one is turquoise blue on the outside, gold on the inside.


This one is silver on the outside, turquoise on the inside.


This one has the snow texture on the outside, pinkish on the inside.


The deer ones are slightly smaller than the snowmen ones.

So excited! These are ready to go! These are my
Hexy Deer Star Ornaments.
You can simply request an ornament, or request blue and gray or greens and I will do my best to accommodate. They hang by a black ribbon. The last two pictures show all the makes before I added the ribbon. They all have the Christmas tree fabric on the back.

Look at all the tiny stitches!

I have so many ornaments already made, some from last year, some from the year before. Would it be possible to offer them all and people can choose whichever they want? I've got an abundance, there certainly wouldn't be any shortage of choice, haha.

You could always call it Choose Your Fave like you've done in a previous round and then your post can show the offerings.

I am totally joining! I love the ornaments I am seeing in this thread so far. In past years, I have sewn elves and fairies. This year, I think I will make Christmas bears. I don't have a prototype yet but here are some other bears I have made. One is fleece and one is foe fur. These tend to be a little bigger ornament FYI.

With credit to CraftyLittleMonkey for inspiration.  ;D

Post by: kbrison on October 14, 2018 09:36:07 PM
Even before I saw the credit line, as soon as I saw the giraffe, I thought of CLM, or more accurately, her mother.  :D Both are cute!

I've been playing with simple angels for my offerings. I thought I had everything I needed for the paperclip ones, but the wooden beads were too big and the silver plastic beads were too small. So I trotted over to Wally World in the rain and bought pearls that were the perfect size . . . I thought. Their holes are too small for the ribbon hangers which serve the dual purpose of holding the ornament together and allowing it to hang. Gotta re-think this project or buy a bead reamer to make the holes larger. Sigh!

I'm hoping for more success with the golf tee angels, but didn't feel like playing with glue tonight. I have to teach denim crafts to approx. 100 women on Tuesday, so maybe I'll just come up with a denim ornament instead for this swap.

I've decided to just make all three available.  A bit of curious menagerie, but whatever.  ;D  So, you can choose from a mouse, a llama or a giraffe.  And as always with ornaments, I'm definitely open to side trades if we're not matched!

Onyxnox, those are so great. They give me memories of a similar craft I did with a church group when I was a kid, except the outer part was premade and made somehow with sugar, Ig believe.  Turquoise is one of my favorite colors, too!

Wow~ I love all of the ornaments posted so far!  Great variety.  This is my fav yearly swap, glad I didnít miss it !!  Itís always fun to decorate our tree with all of the ornaments collected over the years :)

I sent in my questionnaire just now- hoping to join you.  I am going to make 3 pairs of embroidered felt mitts and 3 mini knit (or crochet) Xmas sweaters.  These photos are NOT of my work -they are inspiration from Pinterest & Ravelry...

Hi all!  The last swap I participated in was 5 years ago, and it was this one.  I can't remember how many rounds, but I know every year we decorate the tree I remember each ornament fondly as made by one of you.  (And I do see some familiar names!) Shortly thereafter I had lots of problems with my eyesight, multiple eye surgeries, and lots of adapting.  I know for thr past few years I've wanted to join this swap, but I don't think of it til I'm too late.  This year I guess I'm just in time....
   I would like to offer some handpainted wood slice ornamemts similar to these...  (From Pinterest)

More likely I will be doing scenes similar to the second picture.  The woodburned ones are nice, but I really want color.

I sent my questionnaire!  I'm doing small fused glass trees.  The glass parts are done.  I'll be adding hooks and a ribbon.  There will be three of each kind, with the millefiori glass (the circles), and with the green and red frit glass.

Oh - and I did stamped wood slices a couple of years ago, I think.  There's something weird about sending them internationally, I think?  I remember I came up with a second option for international people.

This year I'm offering angels.

The Golf Tee Angels will come as a set of two. You'll have a choice of hair colors: white, blonde, light brown, or dark brown, which I'll add once you've selected your preferences. The angels may each have a different hair color if you'd like that. They're about 3 1/2" tall and are holding a wooden heart decorated with a white bow.

The paperclip angels also come as a pair. They're about 1 1/2" tall.

You can send me your top picks list anytime between now and Oct 24, 6pm eastern but no later.

You can send 10 favorites if you are offering 6 items, and 6 favorites if you are offering 3 items.

Do not send me preferences, you will be sending those to your partners once you are matched.

And if someone's offering looks like this: "lindyv321 (3/3) - 3 Snowflake Sleds AND 3 Snowmen" It means lindyv321 is offering 2 separate items, so if you want one, or both items you have to put them on your list separately.

If you want to save me time, you can send your top picks in this format since I have to put them in this format before matching anyway.

When offering 3 items, you send me your top 6 items in the order you like them like this.
1. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc to 6 items...

if you are offering 6 items then you pm me your top 10 items like this
1a. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
1b. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2a. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
2b. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
3a. (YOUR USERNAME) USERNAME OF PERSON OFFERING ITEM - NAME OF ITEM YOU LIKE
...etc...3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b (your 10th pick)

I must receive all top pick lists no later than Oct 24, 6pm eastern

any questions, let me know!  :)

I do remember you as johnson.mom2two!  I do recall a lot of these names, but I am about bouncing that someone remembers me!😆

Yes, about the wood.  I did plan on using wood slices, sliced here locally...  but after looking up the international rules, I am using bought ones.  Which would be easier anyway, as I can get right to work painting.  And I plan on stopping at the post office hopefully today to ask what kind of proof I may need to show to be able to send internationally.  And still, I can make some other ornament if needed.  (probably some felt Christmas creature, as I can get to those supplies easily, and they wonít require any additional cure time.). Whatever it is, it will be nice if I have to go that route.

I will be making a light brown bear -posting a photo of it along with the cream ones - and then asking swappers which color they want.

OMG - the bears are adorable!

I sent my packages this morning.  They are bypassing Canada Post, so there should be no delays - she says this with a great deal of hope....

I hope they all make it safely.  I went with a bubble mailer and I hope the ornaments are sturdy enough.

We still have two more weeks to finish crafting and turn "green", but if you are already finished crafting please pm me so your partners can send to you.

And since some items have been shipped I made a gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=456398.0)

Just wanted to stop in and show my. 2 different designs.  I'll be asking people who are recieving from me for their addresses and i can possibly accommodate your choice of ornament.  I blinged them up a bit, so they aren't the typical rustic type of ornament you usually see with these.  But I hope my partners like them!  I can probably go green early next week.  Oh!  And at the time the oics were taken I didnt have them drilled or strung, but of course there will be a way to hang them when they arrive. 


Sorry bout the huge screenshots.  I'm STILL not used to craftster photo hosting and how to get my photos to upload.

Both are super cute.  I have a hoard of those wood slices. I even bought some logs and sliced my own to make bigger ones more painting in my future since I have seen yours!

I agree!  Your ornaments are both adorable and I am excited to receive whichever one you choose to send to me  :)

My ornaments are done & ready to go, too~  I will send them out in the next couple of days!

Yay, Iím done!  I now have clear coat drying.  It just got Ďcoldí here this weekend.  So far they seem to be drying okay.  Thinking a 2nd coat this afternoon.  Then I will be able to send in a few days. 
   Quaggy, I have a friend who has a small cutting mill of sorts here.  We always get free firewood from his scraps.  I wanted originally to have him cut the slices, but I bought them because the wood from a craft store is heat and chemically treated.  Soon though, Iíd like to slice some myself.  I have a wood burning tool, too, so it would be sweet to try some of the burned ornaments I have seen.  Though I have much more faith in my painting abilities than wood burning!
   So happy to be a part of this swap...  Thank you for organizing, GatorWrangler.  I make it my goal to remember to be here around October yearly to join this.  I donít generally LOVE Christmas,... but nothing gets me in the spirit like crafting for it...

Loving the free firewood scraps.....I managed to pick up my logs from the crafts store after Christmas sale and they were marked down really cheap but have also bought the pre- cut slices as well.  I know I should really paint Christmas all year but it is really hard to do with the heat here in Texas.
(just a mental block for some reason)

Ok ladies for for being absent the last week or so. My uncle passed away (due to a fall) and then a family friend was hurt severly by a fall and passed away the other day.  To top it off I took a heck of a fall last night and sore as all heck today.  And will likely go get checked myself today as my head is hurting so bad as well as shoulder and butt.  I do have all my ornaments done just need to package and mail.  Please just give me a couple more days to do this.  I am so sorry.

So very sorry for your losses and your injuries. It's hard enough to handle the grief of one death but to be hit by two, then be injured yourself seems overwhelming. Praying you have all the support you need for emotional and physical healing.

Mel, so sorry for all the falls and tragedies in your life lately. I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you.  I did get to the doc.  Sprained neck and bruised shoulder.  So just sore now.  Trying to take it easy.  :)

Don't forget, if you are shipping to Canada, Canada Post has been having rotating strikes since the middle of October, and they are not unloading many of the shipping containers, so there will be a long delay - so don't think your package is lost or anything - it's just being held up.

I made a bunch of extras for gifts for friends and family.  It was really fun.  I just love this swap so very much.

A bunch of extras? Good grief! 40 by my count . . . that's a very big bunch! Adorable but they look too time consuming for me to tackle. Glad it was you instead.  :D
