1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "Off to college 2009"? on: June 12, 2009 06:46:50 AM
I remember being intensely jealous of the "going off to college" swap last year, and now that I qualify I would love love love to do this! Its different than the adopt-a-student swaps because its limited to college/university aged people helping each other kick off the school year with dorm decorations, doodads in your university's colors, school supplies and so on. whatdya think?

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swap conundrum! grrrr on: May 26, 2009 08:29:42 AM
My first swap as an organizer is coming to a close and all is well except for one problem. Swapper X sent a long time ago and then disappeared and doesn't answer emails. She has since moved to another address and her partner can't sent her package. Should I go ahead and give them feedback? Positive? Negative? I'm so confused!  Undecided

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Need advice on unfinished swap on: December 22, 2008 09:01:06 AM
Hello. Thank you for reading this! Smiley
I was in the Nancy Drew swap and my partner/the organizer never sent. I filled out a help desk ticket and she was given negative feedback. So, my question is this: could I get a swap angel, and if so should I start a topic in that discussion board for myself?  I'm not sure how to organize FoC status...
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / jeans too small at waist? on: September 01, 2008 09:29:22 AM
Hello and thanks for your help.
I have these really pretty denim pants that are the perfect length and fit like a dream in the thighs, hips and butt area. They do not, however, fit at the waist. I can get the zipper almost all the way up comfortably, but I can't even get the button to touch the button hole. This always happens! I think I find the perfect pair of pants and then something goes wrong. Is trying to fix this a lost cause? Will I have to maternitypantsersize them?
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Another "need ideas for moving friend" thread on: August 23, 2008 05:23:45 PM
Hello, thanks for your help! I've been looking around, and will continue to do so, but I'm still not sure what to make for my friend who is moving to Hawaii. We're not reeeeally close, but I've known her for awhile and want to make her something. 

is 17,
very talkative,
a proud military brat,
a homeschooler
has long hair,

Germany and the German language,
Tokio Hotel (a lot)
the colors black and blue,
Harry Potter,
theme parks,
working out

I suppose her style is more punk/rocker. She's kinda one of those Hot Topic posers. I mean this in the most affectionate way possible.  Cheesy

Oh yes I forgot to mention I can do lots of different crafts, but not knitting and crocheting.
8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Yay I'm here! on: July 06, 2008 02:25:30 PM
Hello! I'm Sean and I'm 17 years old. I enjoy forcing my craftiness upon people, usually in the form of lovingly handmade presents. Wink I like to sew, embroider, draw, paint, cook, recon clothes, recon anything, and I recently got into batik and shibori. I admire those who can knit and crochet... I could not understand how to do either for the life of me.

Well, I don't remember how I found this place, but I stopped lurking and joined because I reeeeally want to participate in swaps and ask questions and maybe share my expertise. Maybe.
