Title: The Young Ones Swap [Sign-ups: 5/16 thru 5/31 Send-outs: 6/30]
Post by: tattooed_dork on May 16, 2006 09:02:15 PM
Swap name: The Young Ones Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: tattooed_dork
Sign-up date range: May 16th thru 31st
Date to send item by: June 30th

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed?: well, since it's a non-U.S. show, i think i'd better!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

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

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

*sings* oh! let's twist again, like we didn't do in moscow...  ;D I made the crafty time long enough for plenty of veggin' in front of the tv... I mean research. You mission, should you choose to craft it, is to make one large/time consuming item or 3-4 small/medium/not-as-time-consuming ones. If you wanna make more, that's your perogative. It's a direct swap (meaning you will recieve from who you are sending crafts to and vice versa), so please discuss this as to not do too little or too much. Discussion is what turns good swaps into GREAT swaps! (wow... sorry about the perky cheerleader routine... *shudders... my inner punk is ashamed...) That works, as does post stalking.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?:

One big item or a few smaller ones?
Favorite Colors/Patterns/Etc.?
Least Fave Colors/Patterns/Etc.?
Items you would maybe like crafted for you?
Items you don't need right now, very-much-thank-you?
Crafts you enjoy doing?
Crafts you don't know but wanna learn or think is neato-keen?
Crafts that you don't gernerally prefer?

Fave Character?
Fave Episode?
Any particular Scene/Quote you love? (if you can pick!)


If you have any questions, please PM me! w00t!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

EDIT:

Here's the who is sending to whom list.  (god, i'm such a dork. i just spent 60 sec. thinking of how to rephrase that sentence so it didn't end with a prepositional phrase. i need a life.)

it worked out wel, shipping-wise; 3 pairs of americans, one pair of canadian, and a trio of UK dwellers (who will be doing a round-robin swap pattern, due to the odd number.)

I was the first to sign up?  That's...great....and you say you have no life.  :P  I did the same thing when I organized my first swap.

I don't think it's a lot of questions I'd like to know more about my partner that way I wouldn't make something for them that they didn't like.

Yeah, we gotta get this started because I am comming up with too many ideas. I gotta nail one down, but I need a partner to let me know what would be appropriate.
There is a denim jacket in my closet just begging to be choped and modified.

Oh dear....I'm having brain blockage...I've only thought of two things I can actually do...and they are relatively small.  Maybe I should back out.  I'm getting craft anxiety really early.

Maybe I can do a lot of like little bitty crafts...I'm not going to drop out.   Just deal with the craft anxiety and think about what my partner might like.  After I posted that I thought about what all I have to do and then I thought about what I can do and well I have some work to do.  :)

Only two more days, right? I am really anxious to get my partner and find out what she/he might want. I keep thinking of stuff and then I have to reel myself back in. *deep breath*
Box o purls, I am very happy to see you will be sticking around.

I've sent in. ;D I mentioned this swap to my bloke and he's got so many ideas and is such a HUGE fan that I just had to do it! Honestly, if he starts the whole "crop rotation in the 14th century..." speech one more time I swear I will not be responsible for my actions! ;)

I'm getting all kinds of ideas now and I think I"m going to learn to modgepodge for this....I'm a little scared but it looks so tempting itn the store....or...maybe I'm just getting overly excited about getting a partner that I'm forgetting to think about what they might want and thinking about what I'm going to do....

 I got the best partner for this _ever_. (Insert evil laughter) I must control my craft madness.  :o

I got mine, and I have heard from mine and I wrote back but haven't heard back again.  I haven't gotten started yet but that's because I'm in the hunting and gathering stages...that's how great civilizations swap packages start, right?

Things are not going as planned for me at all.  I had to restart my big craft last Wednesday I think and it's started to look right.  I'm hoping, hoping that I won't be late and if I am I'll be letting you know tattooed dork and doubleplusgood...and I hope hope it will only be a day.  I hope I don't have to work late next week because that will throw a monkey wrench into my whole schedule.

Hey,
Hopefully it won't be but a day or so...I did have to work late one day (so far) and the craft is coming along slowly but surely...hopefully it will be worth it for doubleplusgood.
