Details of swap:

Your mission will be to find something you have in common with your partner and craft 2 small items and one medium item that apply to your commonality.  Give your partner as much information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing! You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to "meet" new people and make some new crafty friends. Please post in the thread at least once per week, and when you post your pics, make sure to tell us what you and your partner had in common!

I'm a big fan of the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, and I thought it was about time I had a little fandom jewelry!  Cheesy

103  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Free Art Bookmarks on: February 20, 2014 06:12:41 PM
First off, let me just say that this was all gozer's idea.  (Love her!)  However, the art is mine....

I made bookmarks to sneak into books in the public library. I drew the picture, added color (can I just say that I LOVE artist chalks?), then scanned and copied.  Then re-chalked, coz the scanner kind of washed out the background. Yeah, you are seeing the washed out version, unfortunately.  The final product is much more vibrant.  The pic you see was scanned prior to being laminated, they have all been laminated now.  I made 30 of them.  I'm going to use some post-it flags to stick on them saying that they get to keep the bookmark.

Details of swap:

This is a Fantasy Masquerade! You will craft a fantasy-themed medium mask or mask-related item for your partner, and one other medium OR two smalls. Bear in mind that "fantasy" can incorporate almost anything imaginable by the human mind...  Wink

Your partner will be a secret!  You will only receive their name and address, you will not be told what their craftster name is!  When you send, please put ONLY your address in the return, not your name or craftster name.  The person you are sending to will NOT be sending to you. This will be a round robin swap.
Please make sure you post in the thread, and just a suggestion, but it might make this more fun if we did not either confirm or deny our participation!  Cheesy  

(A list of participants will be provided to the swap moderator if required.)

Posting pics will be done a little differently with this swap. When you receive, send me a PM.  DO NOT POST PICS! SENDER WILL BE POSTING PICS!  Once everyone has received, I will unmask our participants and then you can post what you sent to your partner. If you wish to post pics of what you received, such as action shots, please wait until after your partner has had a chance to post pics.
Happy Stalking!

110  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Common Ground Round 2 on: January 21, 2014 09:46:59 AM


We had loads of fun during round one... anyone up for round 2?

For those who aren't familiar with this swap, the idea is to find something in common with your partner and craft a couple small items for them based on that.  Then when your partner posts their pics, they also tell everyone what it is that you have in common.  Kind of a fun way to get to know some of our fellow craftster-ers a little better.

I'm thinking of starting sign ups in mid Feb with send outs probably mid - end of March.
