1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft for my planner on: October 14, 2015 02:11:29 PM
I'm just getting into the gorgeous planners I see all over Pinterest these days. Anyone else here use a planner? I'm not exactly sure how it would work- if anyone is interested, let's brainstorm. I'm thinking maybe a sweatshop swap type thing where we make several of an item and send them around, maybe include some supplies. A lot of the packages (page flags for example) come multiple to a pack so we would end up with a good variety.

We could make/send fancy page clips, bookmarks, dashboards, dividers, tassels, stamps, stickers, pens, page flags, sticky note pads, folders, pockets, art, washi tape, etc.

There hasn't been a shrine swap or altered tin or similar in a while. Something like this one Smeddley had, maybe she'd want to do another  Grin

I'm not sure if that's the right description, but one of those swaps that you make a bunch of a thing or two and send to several people and you get from several people. I was thinking jams, biscotti, cookies, breads, sauces, pickles, tea, candies, seasonings, pie fillings, etc, wrapped up all handsomely.

6  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Bow and Sparrow on: December 10, 2014 09:04:44 PM
Hi! I'm a long time crafter. I will try (and probably have tried) pretty much *anything.* My strengths are probably sewing and stained glass, but I'm a dabbler, I like to try everything. I'm here for the craft swaps. I love the idea of a challenge to make something you don't have 100% control over and to try new mediums. Getting a real work of art from someone else every now and then just makes it extra nice. I've just started knitting and paper making. There really is no craft or vegetable I don't like.
Too many current projects to name, but my favorite one is a warewolf head mounted on a plaque (paper mache).

I have a handful of duplicate washi tape rolls, maybe others do too?
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A few ideas (Typography Art and Caladers) on: November 10, 2014 09:17:29 PM
I'm a newbie, I can't host, or even participate in a swap for a month, but it looks like these take some time to get organized so I figured I might go ahead and toss out a few ideas.

Would anyone be interested in an art swap themed on typography? It was thinking it might work for after the holidays. It can be anyone's interpretation of typographic art. Here is a inspiration board I threw together with a quick search to show what I mean

Another idea i have, a desk calendar, may be a bit more complicated. The goal would be to have each person end up with 1 page for each month. Something a bit like this


So whoever is participating may send out more than one of the month they were given. We would decide ahead of time the dimensions of the paper (something smallish) .Not sure if it's worth it, or even doable over the holidays, but I thought I'd toss it out there!

I'm excited to get to crafting with everyone!
