11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / JIMMY BUFFETT!!!! on: June 05, 2008 04:38:58 PM

post it all here!  get ready to be jealous!
12  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / RIT dye on: May 19, 2008 11:03:27 AM
does anyone like RIT dye? 
I am wanting to do some small amount of tie-dying and have been reading that most folks don't like RIT dye, but I don't expect a lot out of it, but want fairly good results. 

(I am not sure if my local craft store sells the "good" stuff and am pretty immediate results kinda person so ordering and waiting for it to arrive is something that is difficult for me.)

thanks, any help would be appriciated!

OK so I am going to buy some Procion fiber reactive dye.  I guess I will have to wait while they ship it to me!

14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Organizing Help, please!!! on: March 19, 2008 08:05:13 AM
Ok.  So I wanna organize a swap.  I have read all the rules and suggestions that I can get my hands on! I have even posted a solicitaion for FREE help doing all the grunt work...and I think that I will be doing that soon, but I was wondering what things help you get yourself set up for a swap?  What do you like to do to keep organized?

The more hints the better!  Is there a Tut on how to do this?

I am very excited and can't wait to do this!

15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / co-organizer on: March 13, 2008 06:33:01 AM
Good Morning!  I am wanting to organized a swap in like May (Jimmy Buffett!!! woohoo!)  But it will be my first! 
so I am a lot nervous.  And I would like the chance to try to help someone, even if they do not have 25 people for a swap. 
I have officially completed one swap and am involved in 2 at this time!  I love it!!! 
I have been reading and reading and gathering information and getting ready, but I think I need some awsome crafter to take me under thier wing and teach me. 

If you are interested please post or PM me!  I would be interested in any type of swap being a crafting participant or not, doing the "grunt" work, or anything!  Thanks!
16  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Jimmy Buffett!!! sign ups are ON! send out June 6th on: March 03, 2008 08:53:49 AM
ITS A GO!!!!!!   Check out the swap pages!  woo hoo!!![/color]
Here is the link to the swap


OK how does April 25th -May 5th sign ups?  And June 6th send outs?!  And what level?  I am thinking...1 large crafted item...a hat, a shirt, a bar accessory & 1 small crafted item...hair accessory, neclace/beads.

Since this is my first swap as an organizer I am thinking about limiting the # of crafters to 10-14. 

I hope to get some response especially about the dates...so please let me know!!

Is anyone else a Parrothead?  Love Margaritas?  FINS?  a pirate looks at 40?  son of a sailor?  tiki gods?  hula dancing?  And of course the man who made all this popular!  Jimmy Buffett!

I just bought my tickets to see my 17th concert!  and am totally in the mood for some summer!  I can't wait to go and PARTY!!!  I made my husband a hat once, and he traded it for "something" on year...sigh it was awsome.  I have some board shorts that I wear almost every year,  hibiscus flower and now scarlet begonias in my hair.

for my Bday my sis made this for me...IT rocks and so does she!!!  #) didn't stink so bad thanks to this!!!  (yes, I did this on purpose...if you can figure it out its OK but if not you don't need to know! LOL! hehehe!)

18  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fruit Salad! on: January 31, 2008 03:41:12 PM
OK so I have wanted to learn for like ever and my BFF taught me like 2 weeks ago!  I love it!  My true motivation is making things for my almost 10month old daughter...here are some things that I hope she will enjoy & you too!  I used a tut from here called a bushel of apples and one turned out to be a strawberry!!!  What luck! 

comment and assistance/critique welcome!

I liked making the fruit better than a blanket or a pillow (like my first project) because with fruit it can be a little bit off and still work..fruit isn't perfect...it just has to taste good!
