4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / OH! Pick me, over here ! No, your other left, :P on: October 20, 2008 04:31:26 PM
Haha, don't mind the title.

Well rather than searching through all the swap ideas, I thought this may be a lot easier & faster.

I would like to organize a swap. I've never done it before but I've always been interested in doing so. (plus I'm a super organize freak & love anything to do with organizing.. anything. & I'm friendly)

I feel like I'm putting out a personal add...

Anyways, if there's any swap ideas that have a lot of people interested, but no one to organize, just PM me & I'll do my best! I most likely wouldn't be swapping myself for other reasons, but I still would love to organize.


I'm organizing my first swap !

I'll post when I finish & ready for another one. Wink

Hi there everyone.

I was just wondering if someone could give me advice (or whatnot) on how to put a picture (or clip art) on ceramic (such as a mug) ? Please & thank you.

I'd appreciate any help & knowledge I can get , since I have no knowledge in this section. Wink

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / My Country Doesn't Have That ! ; Round 10 anyone ? on: January 01, 2008 08:14:16 PM

I think it's time to have another MCDHT swap. What do you guys think ?

I unfortunately can not be the organizer because it would be my first swap.

I just found out about this swap today & got really excited, I posted on the board to ask if there'd be another one, because of course I didn't think of this forum but rackycoo mentioned it, so I thought what the heck , might as well.

Not familiar with this idea ? Take a look here , https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202120.0
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Want souvenirs from another country ? SWAP on: December 31, 2007 03:23:29 PM
1. There's a story to this ... (don't want to read the story, I suck a story telling, move down to the third paragraph)

2. So I seen this post , https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216741.0 yesterday & I was like "OH I WANT TO DO THAT , OOH OH !" but rather then toothpaste I thought of sugar packs, & I got excited. The only out-of-country place I've been to is Bermuda & I unfortunately do not have a sugar packet from there.
Then came the start of the idea, I thought of coming on here & putting in my personal signature for someone to maybe mail me one from Bermuda then if they wanted I could do something similar, then the IDEA ...

3. I thought of a swap of collectibles. Everyone saying where they're from & a list of what they'd like & maybe from where they would like their item (or not?) & then people swap, it would be sort of like an on-going, I'm sure. Anyways, I haven't worked out the kinks.

4. I unfortunately wouldn't be able to be an organizer, but would definitely love to participate.

(now please, please like this idea)
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / No money + Wrapping paper + a La Senza bag on: December 16, 2007 03:30:49 PM
Gift tags !
I think these are super cute, I almost don't want to give them away. Haha. I didn't feel like buying tags, + I don't have a lot of money, being a university student.

I cut out the pictures from wrapping paper & glued them onto card stock, then used a La Senza bag for the actual "card" part. (first thing that was in my room that was heavier than paper -- just bought pajamas from there yesterday. Grin) Punched a hole in them & used other scraps for my name, attached with a ribbon.

To my boyfriend.

A group shot.
Sorry for the bad pictures.
Thoughts anyone ?
