31  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Taylor Swift Swap? on: November 01, 2011 06:08:59 PM

This wouldn't be about Taylor Swift the person as much as it would be about Taylor Swift the feeling.

Have you ever seen her greeting cards? They bring me to tears on a regular basis in the card isle. So heartfelt, so girly, with loopy cursive hand-writing and glitter. Inspirational messages and pictures of a guy and girl, captured in a heartfelt moment.

Have you heard her songs? About hope, and love, and believing in yourself and what you're capable of.

Have you seen how she dresses? Honestly. If it could be more fantastic and whimsical and vintage and country I might just die.

So thats what this swap would be about. All that fun nonsense and being girls and loving music and dreaming about that special boy.

I would like to start in January because:
1) the holidays will be over and all will have more free time.
2) in my part of the world its the most dark, cold, depressing, long month of the year and i could do with a little glitter and sunshine.
3) it seems like nothing much happens around January or February. it'd be nice to have something to look forward to.

As for size, whatever is good for those interested.

Would anyone like to participate?

i've been having trouble with my internet, but chrissews was king enough to lend me her pics. Smiley

feast your eyes upon the crafty awesomeness!!

4 BRILLIANT hair feathers!!! in exactly the style i've wanted but have been putting off buying...cause i'm cheap.  Cheesy and one of them looks suspiciously like a jellyfish. we made me so happy. its the most charming thing ever.

next was a set of sage green hand-painted owl teacups that i am madly in love with. they are so carefully painted, and beautifully done. i love them so much, but sadly, one of the handles broke on the way here. its ok though, cause i have super glue. they fit in so well with the rest of my teacup collection.

and now an item that has been on my wist forever. A TARDIS SEWING BOX!!!!! the top is a pin cushion, and she sent me pins and a measuring tape and thread and a new stitch ripper. it is so great and wonderful. i've already used it to make a dress. i just can't get over how well she did and the time she put into it.  Grin

and last she made lots of gifts for my animals! two mice, two rope toys, and a nom nom for my rabbits. they all love their gifts. i put the pink mouse on a fishing pole and cast it across the house for my girl kitty. she needs the exercise.

she also sent homemade pumpkin cranberry dog/cat treats. they LOVE THEM. my cat ripped open the box they were in and tore open the bag. she's insane.

Chris was one of the best partners i've ever had. no lie. i love everything she sent and appreciate all her work and coperation. thank you so much! i send you love from michigan!

I received from amycavy today.
Unfortunately, this is how it arrived:
Open and apparently there's even something missing, a tree of life pendant. If I ever see a mailman wearing one..... Shocked

That drives me crazy that someone would be so bold, unprofessional, and unethical as to steal from a package like that - there must be some recourse you can take, or complaint you can file?

tampering with the mail is a federal offense. you should absolutely do something. that is horrible and so disgusting. what is wrong with people that they need to violate the privacy and sanctity of someone else's life? i am appauled by people these days. you can't even send your mail in good faith.

i am glad my package wasn't messed with, and that i finally recieved from chrissews!!!

the package is absolutely brilliant!! but i won't be able to post pics for a few days. i have to be in town to use the WIFI. dialup won't let me post more than 1 pic before it stops working. can't wait to show you all the wonderful things she sent. Smiley

no mail on columbus day. Cry

I know how inconsiderate of the PO to shut down for Columbus Day and make all of us wait an extra day for our packages!  Hopefully it'll be here tomorrow.  I think your package might be delivered tomorrow too!

i agree. how dare they. and yes, my package is sitting at my post office as we speak. Cheesy i will have it by 6 p.m. tomorrow. i'm near fever pitch with excitment.

I'm in need of some old school romantic charm. Such as the romances found in these books and/or movies:

Pride and Prejudice
Jane Eyre
The Young Victoria
Sense and Sensibility

I'm thinking not a large swap, something small. maybe a few wax sealed love letters or poems, pressed flowers, ribbons, you get the picture. Maybe even like a secret admirer swap? We pretend to be the gentleman/lady and send our partner/love interest some heart-felt romantic stuff?

I was also hoping to start signups sometime in november and have endouts early-mid december.

I have never been an organizer, and honestly no clue how to do it. If anyone would be interested you'd be more than welcome.

So, do we have any takers?
