42  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Scavenger Hunt Swap? on: August 31, 2008 10:53:54 AM
I'm not sure if this has been done before but here is my idea:

Everyone would send their partner a list of 10 items and the partner would then have to scavenge them (lets say she/he only needs to find at least five) and then incorporate the items into a crafted item (or items).

People could scavenge their house, garage sales, thrift stores, etc... And be creative! If I put "skunk" on my list then my partner might find a skunk figurine, a skunk sticker, a black and white piece of fabric...

Any takers? Any ideas to add?
43  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Alcohol/Bar Related Swap Round Two? on: August 26, 2008 06:47:45 PM
I had so much fun hosting this swap, would anyone be interested in a round two?

If I host this it will be basically the same set-up, I would only change to points rather than set sizes to allow for more creativity.  Smiley
44  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Alcohol/Bar Related Swap ~ Angel Found! on: August 03, 2008 09:53:15 AM
Angel found! Thanks zigg13pra


Need one angel for the Alcohol/Bar Related Swap
Swap thread
Swap gallery

I will be needing an angel for myself, and since I feel weird as the organizer asking for an angel I have decided I will pick someone that is not a friend of craftster so that they can be one (since that is the reward for angeling). I also ask that you be of legal drinking age in your country since that was a rule for joining the swap.

In this swap we crafted 1 medium and 3 smalls.

Here are some of my questionnaire answers:
What’s your poison? Malibu Coconut Rum (or mango, or banana, or pineapple…), Just about any other rum (Tattoo and Redrum after Malibu), Midori Melon, Heineken, beer
Least favorite drink? Tequila, gin, and vodka
What are the favorite drinks of your household (optional if you want to share your crafts with family)? My husband loves Finlandia Vodka (and it’s the only vodka I can stand).
Do you have any allergies? nope
Anything type of craft would like to receive? Just about anything would be great. Maybe some kind of hair accessory, I could also use recipe cards (as well as recipes), shot glasses, coasters, a swap journal, jewelry (no earrings though), a new belt… the list goes on but I would probably be happy with anything.
Anything else you would like to share with your partner? I don’t regularly drink whiskey but I have been known to mix it with coke, and I do like the way the Jack Daniels label looks. You can also take a look at my wist (link in my signature) to get an idea of my style and things I like.


PM me if you are interested

Details of swap:
Ever imagine Cinderella as a vampire? Or want to see a punked out Red Riding Hood? Or maybe you picture Snow White as a mermaid that travels through space in a water-ship? In this swap you will be choosing three fairy tales/characters that you would like your partner to alter in some way based on three themes you give them. There are many crafting possibilities for this including; wall art, clothing, jewelry, story book making, and card making, as well as many others. This is a swap for the imagination!

There are countless stories out there to choose from. Some more obvious choices are; Disney, Grimm, Mother Goose, and Aesop, but you can also choose from the wide variety of myths and lesser known stories. Please include a link or description for your partner if you chose a lesser known story/character.

You can turn something dark into something light, something old into something new. Some more theme ideas and crafting ideas for this swap can be found in the discussion thread

We will be crafting 5-7 points using the following system (you do the math):
Small = 1 point
Medium = 2 points
Large = 3 points

Craftster guidelines for the sizes:
Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks…
Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf…
Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse…

When you send be sure to get delivery confirmation and PM the number to me and your partner. When you receive also PM me and your partner and post pictures in the gallery. If you will not be able to take pictures arrange for your partner to take pictures before they send.

Since this swap has a long crafting time I will require everyone check in with me either by PM or on the swap thread. The craft time is longer because you might need to do some research and school will be starting for some of you. You must check in every two weeks at least! I will be keeping track and “poor communication” will be left in your feedback if you do not update me on your progress.

Please think carefully before you chose your tales/characters and themes, if you have a beloved character that you do not want to have altered with one of your themes please do not list it (or list at your own risk).

Details of swap:

This is a swap for those of us out there that are addicted to swapping; we sign up for multiple swaps at a time, some are quick and easy others are full of challenges.

In this swap I will be partnering everyone up in groups of three and each group will help each other craft their other swaps. You will use each other for sounding boards, advise, and motivation. Communication is KEY in this swap, please do not sign up unless you will be able to be on-line a few times a week to talk with your partners. The catch to this swap is that you will be sending three small gifts of encouragement to both your partners via snail mail. These can be handmade cards, treats, or small crafted goodies.

We will have a gallery so plan on taking pictures and posting what you receive


If this will be your first swap (or you do not plan on being in any other swaps) then please plan on doing one or more of the following (as this swap is designed to help you craft):
~ Tackle a big project
~ Try a new craft
~ Make a gift for someone

Remember you will be making/buying three smalls and sending them one at a time
Send out dates:
Friday 08AUG2008 (three weeks after signups end)
Friday 22AUG2008 (two weeks after first send out)
Friday 05SEP2008 (two weeks after second send out)


PM me (Kartiana) and your partners when you send and receive. And if your item is big enough for a DC # PM that info as well. If you have no proof of sending and your item does not reach your partner you will be asked to re-send.

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

48  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Help! Age related dilemma in Alcohol/Bar Swap on: May 23, 2008 03:30:38 PM
Swap thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246446.0

Dilemma: I have received a PM from someone wishing to join this swap, but they will not be 21 until early July. ...I have stated in the rules that everyone needs to be 21 before signups end since I do not want to appear to be endorsing underage drinking (even though we will NOT be swapping alcohol, it is an adult theme). I'm not sure what to do in this case and am asking for advise. They will be 21 before the send out date so this is why I'm asking for advise. ...There are still plenty of things someone can craft related to this theme without having to buy alcohol to get supplies.

I posted in the thread asking for advice and most people seem ok with letting this person join but I'm still not sure. I guess I would like some other opinions before I decide.

Thanks!
49  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Altered, revamped, modern, or other Fairy Tale swap? on: May 20, 2008 11:03:09 AM
Sign ups are OPEN!!!!! Now through August 8

I've had this idea for a while, inspired from someone's crafted item on this site (sorry I can't remember what it was or how to find it again otherwise I'd link it).

What about an altered, re-vamped, modern, or somehow re-made fairy tale swap? The idea would be to come up with your top three fairy tales and characters then your partner would craft them in a new style. The possibilities are endless; modern, punk, goth, Victorian, sci-fi.... and craftable items; home-made story book, wall art, clothing, jewelry (?)...

So in the questionnaire you would be asked to list three fairy tales, three fav characters (or fav from each story already listed), and three styles. Or just the fairy tales and characters and leave the style up to your partner.

I'd be interested in organizing but not until at least next month. Anyone else interested?
50  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / First time organizing ~ Feedback system question on: May 19, 2008 11:50:11 AM
OK, this is my first time organizing and I already made one mistake with the feedback system that a wonderful mod fixed for me  Cheesy (Thanks rackycoo)

Now I went back to add the other swappers that have signed up. I found my swap in the drop down menu, filled in all the blanks, and then put their names in starting with #2 since I already put myself in the #1 spot.

I'm not sure what I did wrong but the swap is not showing up in their profiles... I imagine there are a number of things I may have done wrong so before I mess with the system too much I am asking here for any advise.

Possible problems:
~Maybe I only had to find the swap name in the menu and not re-fill in all the blanks?
~Maybe I should have started with the #1 spot?
~Maybe I just fail at the feedback system in general and it decides to hate me  Tongue ?

Thanks in advance for any help!
