If you were sending that to me, I'd vote for the second one, but you should get your partner to pick! Which one does she think she'd do the best work with?

They're both cute, though. Looks like you'll have to host a round 2!

I actually have three bags full of bags I never use (I'm very picky, this one's too small, this one doesnt have a cell pocket, this one's strap is too short etc etc etc) so it was hard to choose. THis is the bag I
ALREADY SENT to Sparkle Horse today, Friday 10/21. Its a mini-backpack type I really like it I just think it's super ugly and I HATE the numbers on the front.

I'm lucky to work within walking distance from two thrift stores.  I'm sure I can scrounge up something!

i'm having a hard time parting with mine too. I think I might also go out and get one.

i have a question though... have we received our partner's info yet? I read the post on the other board.

oh, please please do a round 2! i thought this was a great idea, but just really bad timing for me! why were there so many great swaps just before halloween???

HEHE. If he is named Stiffler... Major Wow.


But I think she's implying that she's a MILF? Yay for American Pie.

I'm an idiot. I do know what a milf is though.

My purse:

I dislike:
the gold, must do something about that definately. I'm not to fond of the flap, it needs love. I like the handle but it can be chopped off if you want. this purse needs some serious love. It has potential but its in bad bad shape.

HELP! OXYGEN PLEASE!  I CAN'T BREATHE! I'M LAUGHING TOO HARD!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D
Thanks for the giggle! Yep, it's a nod to American pie, and I wish I was a MILF......

PinkMafia - the white bag is made of vinyl over a stiff cardboard. I love the bag, but it's a bit too stark as is. If you'd prefer a more fabric bag, I've been to the thrift store about 12 times since I had the idea for this swap.... Just in case there's a round 2 (love the way I justify my shopping trips??) :D

Perhaps subconsciously, you think you really are a MILF.

Is that why you feel the need to have a swanky new purse?

Personally I check the original thread for official updates and the gallery only for pics and comments on the projects-- Either way is fine though
*Edited to add:*

I got SparkleHorse's bag today and I am so jealous it's not mine. I love it and it was exactly like I pictured, I've already thought about what I'm going to do with it. It has a cute little jeweled snap

I'll take a picture and try to post it tomorrow.

Here is the purse that glitteratti sent me. I'm still circling it warily, waiting for inspiration to strike. Then, I will attack it stealthily. It will never know what hit it.




Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: Stifflersmom on October 28, 2005 08:52:18 AM
sneak up and POUNCE on it!
Does it have bakelite at the top?


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: rackycoo on October 28, 2005 09:00:17 AM
Perhaps....

It is a plastic like material, so it probably is bakelite. Heck, what do I know?

It's a nice Italian leather purse, though. It's only fault is that it smells like a thrift store. I'm going to try to fix that part, too.

And I will pounce when I figure out what to do, but I will sneak up behind it first.


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: Stifflersmom on October 28, 2005 12:58:25 PM
If it's a bit olfactorilly-offensive, try putting a bar of soap in it for a day or two. Mine was the same way, so I packed some good smelly stuff into before I shipped it off. Dual purpose - nice suprise for my partner and no stink!

edited to say:
dang it - I guess it's not a suprise anymore ....... *moron*

Here is my beautiful little black vinyl number that will be on its way to Amaranth tomorrow morning.  I like the shape of it but the handles are WAY too long and it needs a spot for my cell phone.  Hope you have fun with it!

Perhaps....

It is a plastic like material, so it probably is bakelite. Heck, what do I know?


Bakelite has a distinctly formaldehyde-like aroma when rubbed hard enough to create warmth, or when put under pretty hot water.

Random trivia FYI.

Post by: rackycoo on October 29, 2005 12:16:54 PM
glitteratti, your bag doesn't look quite like that anymore. Today it made a short visit to my husband's workshop, where I performed a quick but painless surgical procedure.

Updates available as they occur...

7 more shopping days remain before the ship date
Does anyone else have "before" pics to post? I'll update the ship/receive list on the 11th! Thanks to those who have sent me their DC#s.
On a related note, please send good thoughts out to the UPS people in Hawaii - the purse I sent to PinkMafia is having a hard time getting to her.  >>i<<


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: PinkMafia on November 04, 2005 11:49:32 AM
I found your package and it will be here Monday.  ;D I reccomend shipping USPS. Its cheaper and if there is a problem with the address (I forgot to tell her my apt. #) my postal lady knows me.

Post by: Stifflersmom on November 04, 2005 11:52:06 AM

The revamped purses need to arrive back to their own homes by Dec. 2nd, so I'll start up a sign up for round II thread in two weeks (and let the sign up period go longer this time) around the 18th of November. Sound good?

sounds fantastic! can't wait! :D

I love how the gallery is on page 10 already but no one has actually recieved their revamped purse yet  :P

Post by: Stifflersmom on November 08, 2005 08:41:00 AM
PinkMafia's bag has arrived!
The bag and I squared-off across my craft table and eye-balled each other for a while last nite. I blinked first. dang....
Then there was a struggle, some cursing and some crying.
But in the end, the gold trim was defeated!!! Huzzaah!


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: rackycoo on November 08, 2005 10:10:12 AM
I'm so glad you showed that bag who's boss!

I had a similar standoff with glitteratti's purse, but hopefully it now has a proper respect for me and my crafty ways...

Post by: PinkMafia on November 08, 2005 11:41:43 AM
You are too funny! I think I got your bag yesterday. A package came but I haven't had time to open it. I will let you know this evening.


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: Stifflersmom on November 08, 2005 11:44:34 AM
These thrifty purses were cheap - but big on attitude! Sitting there just daring us to make them fabulous.  ;)
Don't be afraid to beat that bag into submission!
The bag I sent PinkMafia is uuuuuggggllly (in a cute sorta way), and anything would be a big improvement.


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP GALLERY
Post by: gingerquilts on November 08, 2005 03:21:26 PM
I am staring down Amaranth's bag waiting for the courage to attack!  Since the bag arrived yesterday I have come up with three very different ideas for it ranging from conservative to wild.  I just need the will . . . . .

Post by: PinkMafia on November 08, 2005 03:54:41 PM
I got Stiffler's bag and am trying to come up with some ideas. Its a really cute bag already, it just needs some pizzaz.

Someone brought up a very good point:
Tomorrow - 11/11- the 1st mailing deadline - is Veteran's Day in the states, and there is no mail service.
So, anyone who has not yet mailed their "before" bag has an extra day.  :)
Please ship to your partner no later than 11/12 - Saturday, and PM me with your DC#'s.

Thanks to all!

Already!!!! I'm not opening it until I ship yours or it will make me super nervous and I won't be able to think straight. I still am trying to figure out what to do with yours. The material is so thick I can't really sew anything to it. Hmmmm... I think I should just go for it and stop thinking so much.

PinkMafia, that's exactly the way I feel about swaps! I don't want to see what anyone else did until mine is out the door.

As for thinking about the bag too much, they are a challenge, aren't they? I thought it would be much easier than it actually is.

As for thinking about the bag too much, they are a challenge, aren't they? I thought it would be much easier than it actually is.
I went through about 10 ideas for PinkMafia's bag, and then went with my first impulse.  I had to send it back home before I changed my mind again and it blew up on me.  ;D
 
I still am trying to figure out what to do with yours. The material is so thick I can't really sew anything to it.
I had the same problem with yours! I got a tip about something called E6000...........

Two weeks until the revamped, artified & glamorized purses need to be back home.  
PM me with the shipping details and PLEASE get a delivery confirmation number.
After all your hard work, we want to be able to track these fabulous bags if they get lost.

I can't wait for the finished bag pics in the gallery!!!!!!


Sign ups for Round II will start tomorrow.

I wasn't trying to insinuate she was flaking - she has been in contact and sent you the DC info.  I just wanted to let you know that I hadn't actually rec'd the bag yet.  I'm hoping I won't need an extension but, if I do, I will be sure to let you know!

As of today I know that two swappers have finished with the revamp, we are waiting patiently for the lovelies at the post office to deliver them to our partners - then, finally, we will post pics!

For round II I will try to keep the gallery for only pics, and keep the updates on the original thread. 14 pages with no finished pics is totally my fault with all my ramblings.....sorry!

**I deleted two pages of my inane commentary**

I put glitteratti's revamped purse in the mail for her today. I sent it priority, so it should be there by Tuesday, at the latest.

Now to wait in worried anticipation....

I'm a new organizer and not quite sure what I'm doing yet - our gallery has gotten a little long-winded - completely my fault. *such a chatter-box*

So, I've re-named this thread "Thrift Store Purse Revamp Swap *chit-chat* and have started a new gallery for all of the completed revamped, artified and glamorized bags.

 Only the "before" & ''after'' bags pics will go there:


https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64613.0


Updates will be posted on this thread.

Sorry if I'm goofing this up royally for you guys. I hope this helps!
(please PM me with any complaints - I can't handle public humiliation  :D  )

you're not goofing up! I think it's funny though that there is so much chatter and no bags to be seen...it was a good idea to start a new thread though...you sounds like you are very on top of things actually-not a bad organizer-but a conciensious one!


Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP *CHIT CHAT*

Here's some bag news. I'm pleased to report I've finally decided what to do with MadelBlue's bag (and no, dear, you can't have mine! don't forget - i know where you live! tee hee). No stupid canvas bag is going to get the best of my craftiness. MWAAAHAHAHAHAAA. Further demolition...erm....revitalization efforts will continue through the weekend, and mailable art ready early next week.

HAHAHAHA I know exactly what you mean. When I was stuffing that bag in the back of my closet I was thinking "why the hell did I buy this stupid canvas bag" I have a real love/hate relationship with it.... I actually forgot I had a "before" bag out there lol... so whatever you do to it-- it's wonderful :)

I was all set to destroy and recraftify a bag but in the end I'm trying to keep yours simple. It's such a lovely little bag it'd be a shame to change it much. I need another week though, I'm trying to finish up my last semester of college, holidays ETC.

take all the time you want, MB! (er..well, not so long that they stamp FLAKER on your profile, but you know...do what you gotta do.)

who knew half a yard of canvas could be so intimidating?? my crafting muse finally got off her duff and sent some inspiration my way and i am gettin into the groove of the craft here.

stifflersmom, you are a kook.I have seen the pictures of the completed bag, and you will be staying here on Craftster for quite some time.

OK, OK, I opened it and I LOVE it. Thank you so much for the extra goodies Stifflersmom. You are really talented. You are silly for being so nervous. May I ask what kind of paint you used and if you sealed it? I just got the rest of the supplies to finish up your purse and I'm even more nervous since you did such a spectacular job on mine. I must say I'm stepping out of my comfort zone for yous and I hope it turns out ok.

Pink - I can't wait to see my bag all changed! I was so in a twist about yours, I completely forgot about mine! HA!
 I am glad you like it! (I don't know nuthin' about no tattoos, yep, I am an ink virgin)
 I used elmer's paint pens I picked up at Michael's. It's not sealed, but there are about five coats of paint because the leather on the wallet soaked it up, and five coats on the vinyl cuz I kept smearing it *klutz*  (my fault - not the pens - they are fantastic!)

Yay! I'm so glad there is a pic on the gallery, I wish it was someone else was first, but that's what I get for bugging my partner!

I got some feedbacks posted (actually twice, cuz I'm a knob).
Those that do not have feedbacks yet, I am still waiting on the Delivery Confirmation #s.

If you've received your finished bag, and that fact is not reflected on the update, let me know.

Round 2 starts up on Monday, so I'd like your help in wrapping this swap up, let me know when you've shipped/received, and please post a note to your partner on the gallery to let them know you've received.

Final feedbacks will be posted next Friday.





Title: Re: THRIFT STORE PURSE REVAMP SWAP *CHIT CHAT*
Post by: Stifflersmom on December 16, 2005 08:37:12 AM
I will be going through all the PMs and threads tonite to finish up feedbacks.
If you have recently received your finished bag please post a pic or PM me - Thanks!!

I will post a reply on all three threads with updated sent/received info later this evening.
If I've made any mistakes - please PM me and I will make corrections.
To our potential flakers - please remember that negative feedback can and will be changed when you've completed the swap with no hard feelings. Everyone gets busy this time of year.

Big thanks to all of the great swappers on this one! The revamps that have been posted have been absolutely amazing!

Hey revampers!
I sent all the swappers a PM. Let me know if you didn't receive it.

UPDATE:

gingerquilts has not received from Amaranth
modpodge has not received from sporkx71
girlwonder has not received from Tagurity
moilulu has not received from grasshopper
loobylashes has not received from icrispyi
rackycoo has not received from glitteratti

 I hope your partners will let us know if they are going to send. I will be posting a request for swap angels sometime before the 27th of December. Since you guys have already paid for a B4 bag, shipping x2 and revamping materials I'll just ask some lovely swap angel to send you a purse, and not go thru all the finding a bag and shipping and waiting again. Sound OK to everyone?

Hey revampers!
I sent all the swappers a PM. Let me know if you didn't receive it.

UPDATE:

gingerquilts has not received from Amaranth
modpodge has not received from sporkx71
girlwonder has not received from Tagurity
moilulu has not received from grasshopper
loobylashes has not received from icrispyi
rackycoo has not received from glitteratti

 I hope your partners will let us know if they are going to send. I will be posting a request for swap angels sometime before the 27th of December. Since you guys have already paid for a B4 bag, shipping x2 and revamping materials I'll just ask some lovely swap angel to send you a purse, and not go thru all the finding a bag and shipping and waiting again. Sound OK to everyone?

I'm getting set to ask for swap angels - if anyone on the above list has received from their partner please let me know.

 :o >:( SO MANY FLAKERS!!! Boo that specially since people sent away their bags!! If there arent any takers for angels let me know-- I'd love to help out. but i know a lot of people were drooling over this swap so im sure they'll be angels.... Maybe the flakers got caught up with the holidays?? :(
Thank you SparkleHorse for being such a GREAT swap partner

Thanks for offering! That is sooo lovely!
I'm going to do an official thread on the swap angels board tomorrow. Leah makes swap  :angel: angels  "friend of craftster" or extend your friendship dealy, which is sooo nice.

This was/is a very difficult swap, tho it seems easy at first glance. Maybe people got overwhelmed with the task and the holidays. Keep in mind, it's never too late to finish up your end of the swap and get a negative reversed.

 :police: <- is that the swap cop?  Hee!

Thank you SparkleHorse for being such a GREAT swap partner

and thank YOU, MB! (i carried my little swap revamp bag with the red sparkly flower on Christmas and got soooo many compliments. i'm like, 'oh, yes, that's my MadelBlue original. no, i'm afraid you can't have one just like it.')

i bet you'll find lots of swap angels, stifflersmom. MadelBlue is right - there were tons of people wanting in on this swap.

Here's the link if you would like to be a swap angel for us:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70079.0

A couple of people still haven't received yet, so we may need one or two more angels, but I've got my fingers crossed that their partners will come thru.

I've got swap angels lined up for: Rackycoo, modpodge & loobylashes.
If any one else doesn't receive from their partner let me know, there is a long line of wonderful craftsters out there to help us out!
