1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Which do you prefer: on: July 14, 2014 06:33:37 AM
I'm somewhere in the middle. I've had a couple of micro-manage partners (to the point of "here's a link to EXACTLY WHAT I WANT, NO CHANGES PLEASE!!!") and I made what they wanted (and hopefully liked!) but I couldn't help feeling I'd been "hired" to make something on commission. It got worse the one time my partner misread the questionnaire and made my swap item from the "do not" part of the questionnaire. oops Embarrassed   

Sometimes I think people put all that micro-manage kind of info in the questionnaire and 'about me' section of the profile so they don't have to answer the same questions swap after swap after swap...  That makes sense, but then there's not a lot room left for 'let's chat about your likes/not-likes' to start to know each other.

what about using stabilizer on the back, just where the design is (plus an inch or so around), cut out the design, then use (matching or contrasting) embroidery floss to attach it to another shirt? A closely-done blanket stitch around the design should be enough to cover the raw edge, or fold back a little bit of cut-out design for a turned under hem, or use bias tape to cover the raw edge.

have you tried submitting a help ticket to the swap mods? they've been really helpful whenever I've had swap issues

I'm thinking about joining. Would a pair of knit baby booties be ok? Or maybe 2 pairs?
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: swap point question on: December 14, 2013 03:33:46 PM
thanks, I didn't realize the number of points for a small/medium/large could vary. (I knew it wasn't the Craftster definition).
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / swap point question on: December 08, 2013 08:30:24 AM
(disclaimer... it's been a while since I've swapped so I may just be 'behind the times' with this question) I was looking at some of the recent swaps and some of them say things like "this is a small swap, just 3 points"  or "send a medium item which is 3 points"

I thought 3 points was a large? Has there been point-inflation? Am I just out of the swapping loop? (possible & likely!  Cheesy )
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: PIC OF FINISHED VIEW - Ideas please - too many doors, too little space on: December 02, 2013 10:20:31 AM
no, the hallway's not wide enough for the door to swing into the hall & still have enough clearance to walk by comfortably

Belladune - I like the reverse French, especially that grey-ish color.

Limeriot- do you have the little round stickers that go on 3-hole punch paper so it doesn't rip in the binders? After the light color polish is DRY, put one sticker on the bottom of the nail, and paint the rest. Peel off the sticker before the polish dries (this is a little tricky - if the polish is too wet, it'll smudge, if it's too dry it'll rip) and ta-da! perfect round edges Smiley

They both look great! I like the hearts! Someone sent me some chunky glitter pieces but I haven't gotten around to using them yet!

thanks! I don't use much glitter either, but it seemed appropriate this time Smiley The only advice I have is that if you tend to pick at polish that doesn't feel perfectly smooth, use a LOT of top coat over the glitter. I didn't put any top coat over the pink nails and feeling the edges of the glitter drove me nuts. I have 2 or 3 coats of top coat over the hearts on the French mani to even out the edges. It's not totally even, but there's no 'rough edges' from the glitter.
