1  Another Middle Earth Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by Wizards_Pupil on: August 30, 2016 01:23:08 PM

Would anyone be interested in doing another Middle Earth Swap? I'm open to any time suggestion Smiley I'm thinking a four point swap would be a good idea and books or movies would be welcome.

Details of swap:

Who loves a good book? And who doesn't love sharing their favorite ones? In this swap, we will be swapping one of your favorite books that you think your partner will like based on the questionnaire. We'll also be swapping some crafty goodies based on the book(s) or genre(s) you send.

Your book can be thrifted or used, just make sure its in decent condition. Dont send a book that is in such a bad condition you wouldnt buy it yourself. One book is the minimum, but feel free to talk with your partner about sending more. (I will also try to match people up based on if they want to send more than one book or not.)

This will be a 4 POINT swap! You will be required to craft at least ONE LARGE or ONE MEDIUM item. The point scale is: Large=3, Medium=2, Small=1. If you make a large item, you need a small to go with it to reach the four points. If you make a medium, you need another medium, or two smalls to go with it.

THIS IS AN "ANY ART GOES" SWAP!! You can use any medium you like to craft for this swap. Painting/drawing, amigurumi/stuffies, quilts, embroidery, mixed media, ATC collage, jewelry design, Scrap booking, knit/crochet etc. Just make sure it fits your partner's taste.

Extras may be sent between partners but BOTH MUST AGREE TO THIS!! No one wants to feel bad for getting a boatload of extras but not sending any

- You must post in this thread at least once a week.
- You must post in this thread before you can join the swap.
- All announcements will be made here so please bookmark this page
- Please try to create a package that you are proud of and you think your partner will enjoy receiving do some research!
- Remember to take pictures, just in case your partner is unable to.
- Keep your receipts and tracking numbers
- Make sure you PM the organizer and your partner when you send and receive
- PM organizer with any other problems right away!

Sizes defined as follows:

Large item: 3 points (A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse; 3 or more hours of crafting time; $30 or more)
Medium item: 2 points (one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf; about 2 hours crafting time; between $10 - 30)
Small item: 1 point (Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks; less than 2 hours crafting time; less than $10)

Your crafted items MUST reflect either the book itself or something of the genre of the book. You can talk with your partner about sending extras, but one medium and two smalls is the minimum.

Please take pictures of your crafted items to post in the gallery. If not, please make arrangements with your partner.

I will try my best to match up people based on their likes and if they want to send more than one book. Please remember, though, that this is to try new books and there are other things to consider when pairing people up.

Make sure to send me the DC# and PM me (with Favorite Book Swap in the subject line) when you send and receive. If youre not in the USA, please get your countrys equivalent. Also, there is a media rate for sending books/movies/etc, but the post office might not accept this if there is something other than media in your package. Check with your post office though; they might let it pass.

So once again, the minimums: ONE book, ONE medium crafted item and TWO small crafted items. Have fun!

5  Favorite Book Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by Wizards_Pupil on: April 05, 2016 12:58:56 PM

In the past there has been an awesome swap were you and your partner sent eachother your favorite books, and a few crafted items based on the books sent and received. For instance, lets say I loved Little Women and my partner loved Pride and Prejudice. I would send her a copy of Little Women, a craft inspired by that book, (Like a notebook based on Jo's character) and an item inspired by Pride and Prejudice. (Lets say Jewelry Liz might wear.) We could decide on the amount of items we think would be a good idea, and how many books we'd like to send.

Does that sound like fun to anyone else? I'm thinking all craft skills would be allowed. (Crocheting, Knitting, Sewing, Embroidery, Paper Crafts, Jewelry, Sculpting, etc.)

I'm so glad you liked the bookmarks Cheesy It took forever to sketch out those swords.

I received from Quantumphysica a few days ago but forgot to post pictures of my fabulous loot:

A terrific Hobbit inspired bookmark with the first page of the book behind Bilbo's silhouette. (It's a printed copy, no actual copies of the book were harmed, thankfully!)

A beautifully detailed bookmark made after a design on Arwen's dress Smiley (The one she wore in the chase scene in FOTR)
Here's an image of the dress with a detail shot of where the design came from:

Thank you so much!

Anyone interested in doing another Embroidery Hoop swap? It seems like it has been a while since I've seen one up. I wouldn't mind hosting it if no one else was interested.

Here are a few theme ideas we could consider as well:


Any sound particularly fun, or any type you'd like to see?

Does anyone have a favourite bookcover?

Ach! The dangers of falling asleep in bed. I'm eternally bonking my poor nose. Ever actually fallen asleep on one?

I'll have to post a picture with a few I'm particularly fond of tonight. Smiley What about yours?

I did! lol, woke up next morning with it laying on my pillow. I believe it was a harry potter one Cheesy Aaah the good days! Cheesy
My fav one is the cover of the bookthief. (not the film one) http://bit.ly/1MdWbP5

Still deciding... I have way to many ideas... luckily I'm swapping 3 bookmarks with each of my partners! yay ^^

Ouch! Harry tends to be on the heavy side. That would have hurt to be hit with.

Lovely cover. I tend to be a bit biased about photographed ones. I adore a good photo. Here are a few I particularly like:
