1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Winter Book Swap 2019: Sign up 11/5-11/12. S/O: 12/9 on: November 13, 2019 10:49:09 PM
I'm thrilled to have the amazing alteredmommy as my partner! Not only is she one of the Craftsters that I've actually met, but even though we're on opposite sides of the country, we can take advantage of Canada Post's new 5 kg flat rate box. That's a lotta books and chocolate. Cheesy

Wulf

Finally get to stuff a flat rate box and for an amazing partner!

I love those little lending libraries. Do you guys have them in your neighborhoods?

There's a children's one that I pass on my way to the streetcar stop in the morning, and a regular one a couple of blocks from us. We've been talking about having one ourselves because we read a lot of books, and it'd be a great way to "dispose of" them. But being me, I can't decide what it should look like - should it be a miniature Taj Mahal? Steampunk? Gothic? Richardsonian Romanesque? Queen Anne Revival? Should it have lighting? A weathervane? Columns? My partner Ian is like "Just stick a door on a crate and put it on a post, already!" But he ought to know by now that's not how I work. Meanwhile, the books are piling up...

Wulf

I feel like you will make the most amazing little library Wulf!  

I just keep a stack of books and magazines by my front door and make whoever comes by take some.  I've not seen any little libraries around town, perhaps I should get on that after the snow melts in 6 months!

I'm still thinking about this swap, being an avid reader who rarely remembers anything she reads (until the deja vu second chapter reading Cheesy)   Did people send from a wish list or pick something and hope for the best?

I hope someone else wants to keep it simple..  I just looked at the gallery from last year and I was like...whoa.


Haha I was all "oooh simple swap before the holidays" until I checked out the gallery from last year  Shocked

BigBangMomma sent her original pkg to me in 2 envelopes which arrived a week apart, in the meantime she sent a replacement in case the last one went permanently astray so i had a lovely surprise in my mailbox today!


Thank you!

This was a great swap, I love seeing everyone's techniques from stamping, bubblewrap and other things as well as the gelli plate!  Hopefully everyone will share what they do with their fabric swatches Smiley

I confess to a tiny bit of fabric painting after....just couldn't help myself after finding some fabric crayons in my stash Cheesy

Thank you! I feel I will be brushing up on my rusty make things with fabric skills soon Smiley
10  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / UNITED STATES / Re: Craftster Meetup 2020 - Aloha Hawaii! on: October 26, 2019 11:27:32 AM
I'm going to have to take myself off the list for this meetup, as I'm blowing my vacation budget for next year on a family reunion for my MIL's 90 birthday on Vancouver Island in may.  With our very dismal exchange rate plus the rates on flights and rooms, I can't swing another big ticket trip this summer Sad
