1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Felt Twinchie Swap Round 3 - Sign up until 31st August Send out 30th September on: January 16, 2018 02:51:08 AM
Hello!

I'm coming out of hiding because I have FINALLY mailed off my shamefully late twinchies to bec99, although it may take a while for them to cross the ocean to her.  I had a very rough end of last year, and am finally starting to come up for air and try to get back in the swing of things.  I just looked through the rest of this gallery and just LOVE what I saw here; it's so cool to see the drastically different styles people are coming up with!!  I need to stay on a break from swaps for a little bit longer until I'm feeling more on top of things again, but I do hope to do these again at some point because I just adore the creativity of the collections everyone's getting!

Anywhere here is my super duper late photo of the lovely twinches bec99 sent me aaaaages ago! 



She chose a couple of my favorite themes, cute animals and music!  And just look at that little tail sticking off the side!  Such a sweet touch!! Smiley  The cassette tape really takes me back; I remember wearing out the tape on some of my favorite albums!  Thank you so much for these super cute and personal twinchies, bec99, and also for hosting, and also also for being so kind and patient despite my totally disappearing for so long!  My most abject apologies, once again, and I look forward to seeing everyone around again!

Helloooooo, everyone!  I am coming out of guilty hiding from the last several months, now that I am finally feeling ready to start catching up on craftster!  So sorry I disappeared for a long time!!  I just looked through this gallery and just love the variety of all the beautiful mug rugs!!  And don't worry, Joyful Clover, my wonderful mug rug from you is OBVIOUSLY a robot; in fact I think it's definitely a cyberman from Doctor Who, which is perfect!  It can hang out on my wall with some other DW art! Smiley  Here's my photo of it!



I really love it!  I've always really liked tile/mosaic looks too, which I didn't even mention, so great job figuring that out!! Smiley

gozer, I really hope your chemo goes as smoothly as possible and that you can still have fun crafting with your crochet project!  We'll be thinking of you!!

I may or may not be able to join a swap.  I've been slowly getting back into swapping after a short break, but I'm still pretty stressed and overwhelmed lately... If it happens, I might join, but I can't commit yet!

Thanks as always for the awesome awards ceremony, LovelyMiss!  And thank you, craftADDchick, for your super kind comments!!! XD

Meanwhile, I have a question for the group: are you all as upset by a recent change to pinterest as I am?  Here is a message I recently sent to pinterest, and I'm wondering how many people here might feel the same way.  I sent this to their help desk, which I realize is probably not the right place, but I couldn't find any mail address for other feedback (which in itself is a bit of a red flag for me, but if anyone can find a better place to send this, please let me know).

I can't find a place to offer opinions on new site design, so I'm writing here.  I'm writing to say that I strongly object to your new system of not showing the boards that pins on my home feed are from.  None of the pins on my home feed display what board they're from. Here are a few reasons this bothers me, aside from simple curiosity/interest:
1) I often like to send fun crochet project pins to a certain friend, who pins a lot of crochet things herself. Now I have no way of knowing if the cute crochet pin I'm seeing is actually there because SHE just pinned it, so I'm not likely to ever send her anything at all.
2) Previously, if I noticed that I wasn't interested in a lot of pins from the same board, I could unfollow it. You still say on your site that we can unfollow boards we don't like, but how on earth will we even know which boards?
3) The reverse is true too. If I notice that I like a lot of pins from the same felt board, then maybe I'll go look at that pinner's crochet boards or other boards.  Now I'll never know if a lot of the pins I like are from the same place.
4) Sometimes I see a pin of my own project.  I have no problem with that as they're there to share, but I'd like to see who pinned it and under what board.  I can't. It's terribly frustrating.
5) Once, someone blocked me for pinning about 40 things from them in under an hour. Now, since I can't see whose boards I'm pinning from, I have no way of knowing if I'm doing something that might be annoying someone.
6) I'm friends with many of my pinterest followers in person as well.  Sometimes I'll notice something like, "Oh, X is pinning a bunch of nail art pins.  I should send her some cute ones I've seen," or even, "Maybe I'll message and see if she wants to come with me to the nail salon next weekend."  

In addition to all of these reasons, I just LIKE seeing what boards things are on because it's interesting.  On the other hand, I cannot think of a single reason NOT to show the boards. Why on earth would you remove this?  Please, please start showing the boards again.  As it is, I doubt I'll bother looking at my home feed at all.  Other friends have said the same thing.


If other people feel the same way, could you please write to pinterest about it as well?  I really doubt they'll take any feedback seriously unless they get the same complaint from a LOT of people, so I'm hoping to add just a few more voices from here if you guys happen to agree!  I know in general craftsters tend to use pinterest a lot, and I hope it will continue to be a useful site, but honestly right now it has me extremely frustrated.

Prompt: September - Harry Potter
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Kitty Magnet
Brief Description:
I made this prize for the second of two winners in Katsuyuki Moray's first ever Instagram giveaway.  The winner of this prize has a grey kitty with a blue scarf, so I designed the kitty around those colors... which also happen to be Ravenclaw colors (movie version)!  Every single time I've taken a house quiz, I've gotten an almost even split between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.  To be honest if I had to choose I'd probably go Hufflepuff, but I feel very close to Ravenclaw too!
