Details of swap:

Attention all you Nancy Drew fans!!  We will be swapping Nancy Drew-themed items! 

What We'll be Swapping:

We'll be swapping items of all kinds (no restrictions) with the only stipulation that the item has to have something dealing with Nancy Drew on it.  That can be Nancy herself, or a person, place, or thing from one of her books.  You can even swap Nancy Drew books, since they can be a bit hard to find. 
We will be making a Nancy Drew package for our partners, consisting of 1 Large, and 1 medium project, based on their favorite Nancy Drew books.  You and your partner can also agree, if you'd like, (this is totally optional)- to swap actual Nancy Drew books with each other (again, this part is optional).  In the questionnaire below, try to list a few of your favorite books to give your partner a better chance of finding your favorite book.  If you can't find your partner's favorite book, you can also check your local library or if you'd like to expand your own collection, EBay or Alibris (http://www.alibris.com/).  There also some good reviews on Epinions.com, like this one, that you can use as well (http://www.epinions.com/Mystery_of_the_Brass_Bound_Trunk_by_Carolyn_Keene/display_~reviews). 

Project sizes\specs:
(These are just so you get the idea, you don't have to make these if you don't want to)
Large:  Purse, skirt, throw blanket, I pod pillow, video\DVD organizer that is large in size, jewelry set (5 or more pieces), Large size papier mache item
Medium:  I Pod case, clock, household organizer (i.e. remote control organizer), book purse, jewelry (individual pieces), Medium size papier mache item.

Swap deadline:  I have made the swap with a September 12th deadline so that everyone can have ample time to craft without feeling rushed.   However, I will be following up with everyone in the swap by PM or email once a week just to check in.  Also, it would be helpful to post on here once a week, as well. 

Sending\Receiving:  Please send all packages to your partner by September 12th.  After you've sent, please PM me to let me know you've sent, and include the confirmation number of all packages sent.  When you've recieved your package from your partner, please PM me to let me know, so that I may give them credit.  Also, please take pictures of what you've recieved and post them in the Swap Gallery post I will set up at the end of the swap.  I will leave feedback for everyone immediately after the swap.

Misc:  You MUST have access to a digital camera to participate in the swap.  Your partner is excited for everyone to see the items they've crafted for you!

2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 21 ENTRIES / Powerpuff Girls Game I Pod Holder on: October 05, 2007 09:19:19 PM

All fixed; now my pictures will show!:)

This is my new I-Pod Radio made completely out of a Powerpuff Girl game I had laying around but couldn't throw out because of the super colorful board.  Basically, I cut each side equally and glued them in the form of a box.  Then, I took two Sony computer speakers (technically they're Walkman speakers) and put them inside, and ran their power cord through a hole I drilled through the back with scissors., and their headphone jack through the panel that would serve as the top.  Then I took Velcro, attached it to the bottom of the top panel and the top of the left, right and back panels and put the top on.  I built the top out of Glow in the Dark Better Blocks, and the Bubbles figurine on the side is for wrapping the headphone cord around when the I-Pod is in use.  Hope you like it!!
