1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Re: Re: Travelers Journal Swap? on: May 19, 2019 05:53:21 AM
I worked up an insert for a swap partner in the past and I'm so drawn to these Traveler's style notebooks, but I know I'd never use one myself. I'm not much of a note person besides grocery lists. I find that small notepads work the best for me. I'm super tempted though, especially after seeing L2E's notebook cover. It's so pretty I wanna have one!

Perhaps you could use the notebooks for artwork and journaling?  Smiley  I have no plans to use mine for daily planning and such (mostly because I sync my calendar and make notes on my phone). 

Alternately, the expandable format is great for, say, making inserts to hold ATCs or photos.  Smiley

If it happens when I've got a spare swap slot, sure! Smiley

I love the wings/fins on that sea creature, and the woodpecker pouch is fabulous!  Impressive work from everyone so far, and also totally unlike the direction I went in...

That quilt is glorious!  Has it got its own thread with more details?

I claim CDEeeek for owls, due 5/30

5/0/0

Hi! I'm Ann, currently in Maryland.  I prefer kid-safe (creepy/nature is fine, profanity/R-rated not) & no unsealed microplastics, but otherwise have fun! Smiley

Themes for me:

seasonal change
little good things (something that makes you happy)
**cave paintings/paleoart (see https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/doggerland-paleoart/)
skeletons/bones
oak trees
North American plants & wildlife
Chesapeake Bay (watershed/ecology)
archaeology
prehistoric animals
labyrinths
fiber arts, especially historical
enchanted forest (the potentially dangerous kind, see: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/wild-things-out-of-the-wild-wood/)

Themes for my 6 year old daughter (fave colors PINK, red, gold, & teal):

Rube Goldberg style machines
flowers, or Flower Girl (her invented superhero: wears flowery dresses, explodes villains, probably blonde)
dinosaurs
potion making (magical or lab science)
vikings, especially ship burials
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap #154- May 2019 (SU & claims open until 5/31) on: May 16, 2019 12:35:48 PM
I claim anna.wahnsinn for greeting cards, due 5/30, as if it all weren't going in the same envelope....

claim 2 of 3, nothing sent yet, etc, maybe I should update the first post for claims, oops.  (Professionalism, I has it.)

Hi, I'm Ann, in Maryland (US), introvert mother of a little extrovert 6yo, maker of stuff especially machine embroidery.  Allergic to tobacco (please don't send unwashables if someone in your house smokes.)  No earrings or strong scents, please. Reused/thrifted/recycled/etc supplies always encouraged if you have them.

colors for me: anything nature-inspired especially dark greens. My daughter is super fond of pink, floral anything, & pale yellow/gold.


**I would love little care packages-- whatever you think the modern crafty equivalent is of, say, a mix CD and a weird toy or new gel pen & a ziplock of cookies. Something happy, silly & low commitment. Fond of fun fabrics (little bits fine), ephemera, stickers, decorative machine threads, tiny stamps, embroidered patches, fun art supplies, etc, see also most of the links below. Smiley

*anything off my swap pinterest, here: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/swap-ideas/

*headwrap scarves in stretchy knit non-animal hair natural fibers (so, cotton unless you have silk or linen knits floating around!) like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369135756924/ ...solid is fine, patchwork or fun patterns are great too. (I love the look here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369149579254/)

*Midori-style notebook fun (traveler size); I could use pockets, a pencil pouch or other holder, recycled-paper inserts (especially if they're something a ball-point pen can easily write on; I have some cool scrappy ones from calluna that are more arty), or another cover to store filled inserts.

*Sturdy magazine holders-- we got one as a Highlights freebie that's made of nylon fabric with stiffening in the sides, and pockets to insert stiffeners to the front & back so it folds flat when not in use. The cereal box ones from kittykill's quickie tutorial are cute, but won't last in my daughter's chaotic orbit.

*we can always use more reusable snack bags.

*fun bobbypins, especially ones where the decoration goes straight off the end instead of being stuck to the side, like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369146945163/ or these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AdEPf2iwoQ2nJ8-yFk9EOXW89SNgbrsSN4DRApphlT7ENAjiDyH_HaU/

*Something inspired by my paleoart pinboard: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/doggerland-paleoart/

*Gift certificates to Urban Threads, Embroidery Library, or etsy are always welcome to fund my machine embroidery habit.  Decorative thread is great, too.

*Anything from my etsy supplies list, either bought or crafted: https://www.etsy.com/people/thanate/favorites/suppliest/

*Something inspired by my wild things out of the wild wood pinboard: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/wild-things-out-of-the-wild-wood/

*funny little dolls (human or not, could also be wild things etc)- I'm particularly fond of jointed paper things or these little stuffed ones: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369149453986/

*Unscented soy or beeswax candles, any size, containers or tealights preferred. Random containers like old tea tins/broken handled mugs/etc are great.

*small tabletop zen garden w/ mini rake & lid to keep the dust out (& the sand in!) anything from altoid tin sized up to ~8” square as long as the rake is in scale.

*eco-glitter or fair trade/ethical mica powder (or 3rd hand mica powders, if you're destashing)... am trying to get sparkles without microplastics or child labor.  So far the only companies I know who do this are based out of the UK: resin8 & EcoGlitter Fun both have etsy shopfronts.

*Currently drooling over these Darn Good Yarns (similar things ok): sari silk ribbon yarn,  especially “pickled pear”
cotton t-shirt yarn(“irish dream” of course)
lace weight silk yarn, especially watercolors, exotic rainbow, date night, and maybe tidepool.  (their “enchanted forest” is very blue which makes me sad)

*If you have any kiddie craft sorts of beads or fake flowers or play food that you're looking to destash, my daughter would love them. (but she already has tons, so don't make/buy us new ones, please!)

*Viking-style glass beads, some historical & reproduction examples: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/799600108812987732/, https://www.pinterest.com/pin/799600108812987722/, https://jelldragon.com/collections/viking-beads/ (and if you have pink lampworked beads, my child would jump on them, accurate or not)

*rubber stamp or linoleum carving blocks; I just carved a stamp for the first time in ages & that was fun.

I really need a journal to store cards for upcoming mail outs, like bdays etc. Do you think something like this would work? I used to be so good at remembering to send things on time, before children, haha.

That could probably work well, complete with a mini-calendar insert for keeping track of days if you need it.  Smiley  Just think about what dimensions you want, and put that on the questionnaire.

I had unexpected weekend time on Saturday where my child just wanted to hang out in her room and listen to audiobooks, so Audio's doll's glamorous accessory got finished up in plenty of time, & the doll is on its way. 

Good luck to all of you making last-minute additions out there! Smiley
