41  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 13 days of Halloween again? on: June 08, 2013 09:31:10 AM
Well, it's about that time for the 13 days of Halloween. This year I was thinking of doing something different though. I was thinking that we could make send outs 2 weeks earlier so that we could actually use our Halloween stuff! So we could start opening on the first and end on the 13th. That way we have all month to display our goodies!!

For those who don't know, the 13 days of Halloween swap is HUGE
We will be crafting a total of 91 items!!! No, that's not right, we SEND 91 items, 70 small, 15 medium and 6 small.  So, you send 13 items for day 13, 12 items for day 12, and so on. Here's some previous galleries

42  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Mario swap? on: June 08, 2013 09:13:44 AM
Well, we haven't had another Mario swap in a while. Would anyone be interested??  I would say 5 points with 5 weeks of crafting?

I made this bag for the Zelda Swap Rnd 5.  I absolutely love it and am so proud of it!!!  It was so hard to part with, but I'm going to make another for me!!  It was my first time doing Teesha Moore patches, my first real embroidering, my first purse really that wasn't crocheted!



And a few of my faves
Keep Calm and Take This, I wish I would have used a plainer fabric for this one, you can't really read it  Undecided

If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES
***International participants, please take note of this! You MUST keep a record of your postage receipt, if for any reason your package is not received, we will need a copy of this receipt!***

Details of swap:
In this swap, one partner (the yarnie) will be crafting one large OR one medium AND one small amigurumi (you can also discuss with your partner potential other sizes/combinations). The other partner (the poppeter) will be crafting one clothed poppet.  This is a great opportunity to craft what youre good at, and receive something you dont make yourself!

Sign-up limits:
Since each yarnie must be matched with a poppeter, it is important than we have the same number of each participating.  For that reason, sign-ups will initially be limited to 12 yarnies and 12 poppeters (for a total of 24 participants).  If there are more people interested, the limits will be expanded so long as the number of yarnies and poppeters are equal. If you are interested in swapping, but sign-ups are full, please still PM the questionnaire to the organizer, so we can keep track of interest and expand the sign-up limits if needed.

Things to keep in mind:
1. Flakers will not be tolerated.
2. This swap has a mandatory weekly check in. This means that you must post (at least) once a week in the discussion thread in order to keep both your partner and us, the organizers, in the loop as to how your crafting is progressing. We will be keeping a record of such posts and if you have poor communication, it will be noted in your feedback.
3. If you have not heard from your partner for awhile or notice that your partner has not been active on Craftster for a while, and you are feeling concerned, PM the organizers! Or if for any reason whatsoever you have concerns, feel free to PM us!
4. We will not approve anyone who has multiple feedbacks stating that they have poor communication, have not used a DC#, or have consistently been late senders.
5. Everyone is expected to send on time.  If you are going to be late, you must notify us ASAP (BEFORE the send-out date!). Those who are late and do NOT notify us, will receive negative feedback which will not be removed or corrected until we receive a DC# and the package is received by your partner.
6. When you send your package, PM the organizers and your partner to let them know its been mailed, and give them the DC# so they can track the package.
7.  Posting photos in the gallery is mandatory, and failure to do so will result in a comment in your feedback. If you do not have access to a camera, please contact your partner and ask if they can take pictures of both packages which they send/receive.
8. If you are an international swapper or sending internationally and are unable to get a DC#, you must retain a copy of your shipping receipt. If for any reason your package goes missing and you do not have a copy of the receipt to provide us the organizers, you will have to resend to your partner.

To contact the organizers, send a PM to mama24boyz.  In the subject line, put Poppet/Amigurumi Swap and sign-ups, question, sent, received, etc.

45  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / Lana Portrait Ghan on: May 03, 2013 07:22:53 AM
YAY!!  A challenge I can enter!

Underthemountain invited me to the IYP swap last round.  I had swapped with her before and she always spoils, she is such a great person, I knew I had to make her something really special and I knew just what it would be.  Averia helped by sending me a beautiful pic of Lana, most of you probably know Lana, our little craftster child  Wink  I got a pattern made from it and some yarn and went to play!!!  It took me a while to get it done, the colour changes are very tedious, some rows take 30 - 45 minutes and others take just 5, depending on the colour changes.  Once you get to the middle though and you can actually "see" what you're making, it gets so much easier to make because you just get excited to see more of it!!  I guess I should mention that its crocheted, in case you wondered.  Tongue

Anyways, on to the pic, unfortunately I only took one, but its a good one.  You could also check out underthemountain's profile pic for a different view.

Thanks for looking!!!

49  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Poppet vs amigurumi swap on: March 22, 2013 08:08:18 PM
I saw the poppet mini swap that's opening up soon and I wish I could join it, but I can't sew.  But I am very good at making amigurumis!! I saw there was a poppet vs amigurumi swap a couple of years ago. Would anyone be interested in doing one again??

My partner in the Triple Vs Swap had a cute little Alice on her pins. I tried to make one similar. I love how it turned out!

And she needed a white rabbit to keep her company!  Wink

Here's the two of them together

Thanks for looking!!
