1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Paper Destash swap - End of Oct/Send before T'Day? on: October 08, 2019 11:46:41 AM
Just organizing a lot at home - trying to tame the mountains of paper I save/accumulate/hoard.

A quick box of paper to one partner?
With the new postal charges on the flat rate boxes, the cost to send will be different. Maybe a medium/large bubble envelope instead?

Let me know your thoughts....

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Shaped Books? on: June 27, 2019 02:26:59 PM
Beehive book?

Hand-shaped book?

Head-Shaped book?

Bird-shaped book?

Foot book?

Crown? Witch's hat? Owl? Cupcake? Boat? Car? Bus? Train? Airplane?

We would make one shaped book for our partner and fill it with the type of paper that is needed for the recipient - mixed media paper, writing paper, sketching paper, watercolor paper, and so on.

Let me know what you think.

You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.
There will not a be a check in time, as in previous swaps, but you should craft now and be ready to send when you receive your partner info.

When partners are assigned, you will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 3 days after receiving addresses to ship your personal art off! You may choose to include your Craftster name on your art when you send. Also, please send pm ONLY to me, Smmarrt when you SEND your piece. When you RECEIVE your piece, send to me, and your partner(s).

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: April 28 - May 6
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW through May 6


~ Addresses will be distributed by May 7, 2019
~ You must ship between May 8 - May 11, 2019

Swap Rules:  
~You must post in thread at least once before being accepted into the swap.
~ Please continue to communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 4 x 6 Art Swap - Again? on: April 19, 2019 10:05:40 AM
This is my current favorite swap - easy to make, easy to package, and easy to send.

You create anything that measures 4" by 6" when completed. You can sew, paint, draw, collage, mixed media, crochet?, and much, much more.

Here are some examples from previous swaps:

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / JANUARY 2019 - Fabric Art Journal Page or Dotee? on: October 29, 2018 03:00:31 PM
I want to complete my fabric art journal and make it into something.....do you also?

Or maybe make some dotees since it's been a while. I will NOT get talked into a monthly series or year-long - just a few for fun early in the year.

Discuss below - I like planning ahead!

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

Mini prayer flags - everything small is fun, right? You will make 3 mini prayer flags. The finished size should be at least 4" x 6" but no larger than 5" x 7". You will keep one flag and send the other two to your partner. Your partner will keep one and abandon one in the world.

The base can be fabric with any kind of embellishment - paint, buttons, paper, more fabric, ribbon, yarn, beads, photos, felt, and the list goes on. The same basic instructions for making flags apply* - add a rod pocket at the top so the flag can be hung from a twig or a dowel. You do NOT have to send the twig or dowel!

The three flags do not have to be copies - you can repeat colors, fabric, or embellishments to make a set but it is not necessary.

*If your finished flag is 4" by 6", you should start with fabric that measures 4" by 9" - the extra 3" makes the rod pocket.

Please post a comment in the discussion thread once a week or so - that way we can all keep in touch with each others' progress. Thank you.
