1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Swap for Foodies, Epicures and Gourmets.... on: August 14, 2006 10:51:44 AM
Anybody else into really great food? I love to cook and shop those delicious gourmet grocery stores. My husband and I are also both really into restaurants. I'd love a swap based on this theme. I can think of some great ideas for swap items:

a restaurant journal (to keep track of your personal reviews of dishes and places you've eaten)
special book marks for cookbooks
embellished wooden spoons
homemade hot pads
foodie t-shirts
pretty aprons
clips for holding open a cookbook while you work
a cookbook stand
a special dried spice you grow

Anybody interested in hosting or participating?
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Verb Swap on: August 03, 2006 02:17:46 PM
This is another random idea I just had. What about a verb swap? Everybody picks a verb and their partner has to craft a big package full of items that connect to or assist with that verb. I could imagine some really cool packages for some verbs....

  a pair of wings, a bird design t-shirt, a kite, something with an angel on it, a paper airplane kit....etc.

  something modge-podged with sheet music, bird stationary, a knitted "throat warmer," a microphone pincushion....etc.

  a recipe for "Hoppin' John," a pogo stick t-shirt, a handmade jump rope, something with a pair of jumper cables on it, a grasshopper ring....etc.
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Love Letter Swap? on: August 03, 2006 02:10:21 PM
This is an idea that just flitted through my mind. Roll Eyes I'm not even sure if it really makes total sense. I was thinking, we could do a swap based on the theme of love letters. Who isn't an old fashioned romantic at heart? Tongue You would make/send items that are somehow connected to love letters.

Here are some examples:I saw a cool necklace recently somewhere on the web that had a tiny pmc envelope pendant. You could send your partner cool stamps to use, beautiful old collector stamps or custom stamps that you can order online now. You could send romantic stickers or stationary to help their letter writing stash. I could think of several cool love letter related t-shirt design ideas. You could make a tote bag for somebody that mimics a mail carrier's bag. You could send a cool box for keeping letters in or some pretty ribbons for tying them in bundles.... And the list could keep going forever.

Anybody think this is a cool idea?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mei Tai Baby Carrier on: August 01, 2006 07:30:33 AM
I made this cool baby carrier. I'm not sure what category to put this in so it goes here I guess. It works great! I love that it is soft and all cloth. No buckles or straps or rings to cut into you after long amounts of time carrying. I also love that the red patterned fabric is an insert. It velcros in and you can change it to go with whatever you're wearing or whatever the season is! Isn't that fun! Here's my husband modeling it in the back-carry position. It can also be worn on the front.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / What about an A.A. Milne swap? on: July 19, 2006 11:01:02 AM
Anybody else like/love A.A. Milne? I'd love to do a swap based on his books and E.H. Shepherd's lovely illustrations. Anybody feel like organizing?
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Shel Silverstein Again? on: July 17, 2006 02:55:26 PM
Just wondered if any of you organizer types would be interested in doing a Shel Silverstein swap again?  There were so many of us who missed out the first time around and it is such a great idea! I'd love to see another round! Anybody?
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby quilt for my cousin-in-law... on: August 22, 2005 11:32:14 AM
I just finished and sent off this baby quilt for my cousin-in-law who just had a baby. They waited to find out the gender until the baby was born....so I tried to keep in unisex. They had a girl. I had not meant to sew it with the orangey-red but I resorted to it after I realized that I didn't have enough of the intended color. I think it worked out alright. I'm glad its done!

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / How to make this and simular pillows. on: March 17, 2005 08:38:52 AM
I love the idea of this pillow with the luna moth wings peaking out like they were tucked into the edge. I think you could do simular things with other butterfly wing designs. BUT! I like to crosstitch but not this much, it would take forever, and I'm not sure I like the flat effect anyhow. I would kind of like to have the "wings" be 3D so they actually are seperate fabric tucked into the side seam. I need advice about how to create the kind of look I'm going for. Does anybody have ideas?

Sorry about not adding a picture at first. I meant to! Here is a link to it.
