yay! i hope you guys that are thinking about it, sign up! it was a lot of fun.

crafter21 and flasheyashley, too bad you guys aren't able to join this round  Sad

haroldlovesmaude, don't worry your themes were fine! (in fact, we have one of the same themes!) i'm keeping three of my themes from the first swap and thought of two new ones. i think half of the fun was doing a little research on some of the themes we didn't know about.

Details of swap:
This, my dears, is the Pick-n-Choose Theme Swap!

Whatcha do is pick 5 themes.

Then you create a list of at least 10 items you'd like crafted for your themes. Once you get partnered up, your partner will receive your list of themes and crafted items. They will then get to choose which kind of crafts (from your list) theyd like to craft to go along with each of your themes. Make sense? Heres an example:

Suzys themes would be:
1. Robots
2. Pin-up Girls
3. Owls
4. Ninjas
5. Hello Kitty

Suzys Crafted Items would be:
2.coin purse
3.original painting
4.crochet beret/hat
5.tote bag
7.stenciled tee
8.knitted socks
10. charm bracelet

Suzyz partner, Jane, then gets to pick and choose what kinda crafts from Suzys Crafted Items list, should like to craft to correspond with each theme. Jane picks:

1.Robots some robot earrings
2.Pin up girls shrinky dink charm bracelet
3.Owls an original painting featuring owls
4.Ninjas a ninja inspired stenciled tee
5.Hello Kitty a coin purse made of Hello Kitty Fabric

You may have more than 10 items listed in your Crafted Items list. In fact, the more you have, the easier it may be for your partner to choose/decided what to make for each theme. Please try to have your crafted items be a mix of different mediums (paper, clay, crochet,etc) and a mix of different sizes (small,medium,large) if possible. For a little bit better understanding or inspiration check out the round 1 thread:

awesome package bigfatroses!

so, my husband received today! he was pretty suprised when he came home and found a package waiting for him!

(remote's covering the addresses Tongue)

first up, an awesome shirt!

i should mention, my husband is a HUGE fan of coheed and cambria (a band) and that's where the dragonflys come in.

close up of the dragonfly.

some super cool co&ca buttons! i'm totally stealing a couple and putting 'em on my purse!

wallet! (he needed one) i took a pic of the inside, but now i can't seem to find it...


close up, you can't see it, but at the bottom it says "we'll have you home pretty soon" it's a lyric from coheed and cambria. he already has it on his pillows. he decided to do so after i took pics and put the camera away. Tongue although, i did wait until after i took pics to let him know i drooled on his previous pillowcase earlier in the morning!!

this is SO super awesome!

she took a pic of the hubby and photoshoped (how did you do it exactly!?) it into a pic of the lead singer of co&ca! that's so cool! he loved it =)

and action shot

apparently there was a mcdonalds commercial on tv, haha!

thanks SO much cassettetape! the husband loved everything and said to give you mucho thanks.=) he appreciates it all!
