Title: Fantasy Swap
Post by: goatgoddess on December 19, 2005 08:28:17 AM
Swap name: Fantasy Swap   
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: goatgoddess
Sign-up date range: 12/19/2005 thru 12/31/2005
Date to send item by: 01/31/2006

Limited to a certain number of people?: No

Non-U.S. participants allowed?: Yes!

All ages allowed?: Yes!

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Send one large item and two smaller items or two large (large is in terms of time and effort)

Details of swap:
Fonduie had a most wonderful idea –
Love the movie Labyrinth?  Legend?  Dark Crystal?  Ladyhawke?  Lord of the Rings?  maybe even Willow?  or The Neverending Story?   Do you like Froud's artwork?

I thought a fairy swap would be in order here at craftster.  But then I thought why just fairies?  I mean I'm just looking for people who love the whole fantasy feel and there's no reason to stifle people if they're into dragons, magical forests, unicorns, elves or whatever.  So now I'm thinking we should have a "Fantasy" swap (as in the "fantasy" section in the book store?) 

We could make a figurines, or clothes/costumes, or even fantasy inspired items like jewelry, scarves, handbags, stuffies, magnets, pillows  ... 

Doesn't matter what as long as it is something that gives you the same feeling as the movies listed above. The possibilities are endless....

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap

What kind(s) of items would you like to receive?
What sort of things do you NOT have use for?

I'm signing up, I just want to think about my answers a bit. I love the month craft time. I will be able to really make something instead of throwing things together last minute!

Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: GoldfishGirl on December 19, 2005 01:58:18 PM
I'm really really wanting to do this. Is there any way we can request a partner with a certain interest? Because I have quite a lot of Froudian stuff right now and I really need to down size...

i would love this.  gotta do some thinking about my list, though - the downside of loving nearly everything i've ever seen and read.

Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: psyche on December 30, 2005 09:30:24 PM
Hm.. and I'm still debating (so many swaps, so little time!)....

Is there anyone into the darker sides of fantasy? Though I adore Narnia, I'm more into.... darker....


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: pumperthedinosaur on December 30, 2005 09:45:30 PM
dark is good, funny is good, i like it all - so much so that I can't think of ANYTHING when it's time to think of it.

Oh, cool! I signed up for this at the last minute and I just can't wait!


Title: Swap partners posted
Post by: goatgoddess on January 01, 2006 10:50:11 PM
You can find the list of partners on the 1st page of this swap - I've pm'ed everyone with their partner's info - if you didn't get a pm from me let me know and I will resend - the craftsters site went down in the middle of my pm the partners.

Please pm me if you have any questions or concerns.

I will be checking in with ya'll later on in the mth. to see how everyone is doing. And again a few days before the swap deadline.

Let's make this a flake free swap!  Very excited to see what everyone comes up with.  ;D


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: goatgoddess on January 13, 2006 09:23:51 AM
Well we are part way thru the month - everyone busy making crafty Fantasy items?

Please remember that Jan 31st is our mail out date. Also don't forget to get that all important DC number - in another swap I was just in that DC turned out to be very important. <g> If you are shipping overseas the DC isn't available.

Also take pictures of your items before mailing them if you are able - that way pic's can still be posted if your partner is unable to take pic's themselves. We all want to see what everyone is getting <G>

It will be very important to PM me when you send and when you rec.  Also Please be sure to post a thank you for your swap item - your partner spent time and money on your project, please take a moment to thank them.

Let's have a flake free swap and have a great gallery to show off all our wonderful crafty fantasy stuff.


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: Faren on January 13, 2006 05:26:42 PM
Yes, I am busy crafting. Having fun too. So far the only bad thing about swapping is being unable to post about your projects!  ;D  Plus, there is always the question....Is she gonna like it?   Ok, back to crafting!


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: Faren on January 16, 2006 06:40:53 AM
I'm done!  (doing the happy dance) Yippie!  I was going to ship it off to WitchyBelle4U2 today, but I remembered today is Martin Luther King day and all the post offices are closed.  So I'll take pics and get them packaged up today.
I've had lots of fun doing this hope everyone else is having fun too!


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: orange_sunset on January 16, 2006 11:20:56 AM
so how long should we wait for our partners to respond to us through pms??? I'm kinda worried since I haven't gotten a responce yet...


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: goatgoddess on January 16, 2006 11:45:17 AM
You might try her again too as sometimes those PM's get lost.  :)



Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: orange_sunset on January 16, 2006 11:48:37 AM
aha! I was unaware that PMs go 'poof'. Thank you for the suggestion ;)

Don't worry witchybelle, I think I was uber excited since this is my first swap.  Didn't want anyone to think I was a flaker, so I overachieved.   :)  I can't wait for you to get your stuff!

Welcome back <G>

I know I have serious withdraws when we are out of town and don't have internet - I have even thought of getting a laptop just for that


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: Kasie on January 30, 2006 11:22:00 AM
I am just writing to say that I MAY have to send on Wednesday. The craft I did is not yet dry.. and I don't want to send it if it's wet.. I hope that is okay. I promise is will be out by Wednesday, but I will send it out tomorrow if it's dry!


Title: Re: Fantasy Swap
Post by: goatgoddess on January 30, 2006 12:34:00 PM
Better if it's dry for sure - I did color dye on some metal work before heading off to a show - thought it had dried enough ......   I was picking newsprint off it all weekend - but it still sold <G>
