3591  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Frugal Living Round 3? on: July 13, 2010 07:57:53 AM
I was only thinking the other day about the Frugal swap and how cool a Frugal Christmas swap would be, just picture it, tree decs, wrapping paper, Cards, Recipes blah blah blah!!  Wink

I was thinking this too!  So hmm ... to wait until September to start the swap with send-outs in November?  Or August-October?  Or should this be separate from round 3?

Hey guys! Sorry I am so late in posting the wonderful package that kaz814 sent to me.

I asked for and received the most awesome car organizer. She managed to pick a girly yet graphic pattern for the backing. Pink and black are my all time favorite colors. Check out the white detail on the ribbon, so cute. Oh, and check out the D-rings. Have to respect a fellow Craftster who is not afraid of the hardware. Smiley

Of course, she spoiled me greatly. Not only did she send the organizer, she sent a trash bag to go with it. She lined it with a plastic material so I could just wipe it out if, er, when it gets dirty.  Can you see it over on the right hand side with the blue paper still in it? Cheesy Even the boys wanted to claim this part. The size of the organizer is perfect, there are tons of little pockets across the top to hold my audio tapes, Zunes, and boxes of raisins. The large pocket on the bottom is a great size to hold two of my many atlases. Most of the time, I spend a ton on atlases just to have them destroyed. Not any more.

But the part that really and truly blew me away was that little statue in this last picture. I happen to know she spent way too much on it but she truly touched my heart by the sheer amount of tenacity she spent just looking for it. I have never seen a Buddha statuette like this. He helps me to focus as I meditate with the added feature of holding my incenses.

I really can not overstate just how wonderful Kaz814 is and how patient she has been while waiting on me to post.

Thank you for everything.

I'm so glad you like everything, rlb!  Cheesy  WOOT!  You were awesome to craft for!

Kaz, how could I possibly resist? the last round tempted me out of Swap retirement and the Frugal swap is soooo much fun. I even have a few Frugal blog links to add to the mix if this one is a go.

So do we get to hear the tag line or are you keeping it secret til signups?!  Wink

You're totally going to have to wait. Cheesy

So do the dates work for everyone?  We can push it back if an October send would be better?

I signed up when I saw the little widget - all the while wondering if I'd just missed it all this time.  Cheesy  Glad to know I wasn't! 

Thank you, mods!

Hi everyone!  I was just curious if anyone would be interested in a third round of the Frugal Living Swap. Smiley

For those who haven't participated, it's a swap where we make things to help out keeping on budget: making reusable things for the kitchen, bath, and home (basically anything so we don't have to buy it!) and inspirational things to help us stay into being frugal!  We've had a lot of fun these past two rounds!

I was thinking signups the last two weeks of July (17-31), partners on August 1st with send-outs September 7th (the day after Labor Day weekend in the US).

I've even got a tag-line ready if there are interested parties!

The flag pie looks so darned festive!  And yummy!

And those caramel apple cupcakes ... oh my yum.  I may have to make these - they sound delicious!

I started on another project for pixieval, but it didn't go off like I planned.  Alas.  I've got a second idea going along similar lines that I think will work out a little better.  Just need to determine how to finish it.  Cheesy

This is such a great idea!  I love the colors you chose, too.  Awesome job!
