11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swapping already swapped items on: August 16, 2007 05:17:02 AM
I guess I've only really noticed this since the shop the swap swaps have started but lately it seems that in these kinds of swaps, people are offering items with explanations like "received in a swap, but i never use it" or "received in a swap, but it doesn't suit me".

What are people's thoughts on this?  Granted that this may be the case (item didn't suit, wasn't useful etc) I would still personally be upset to see something I had crafted for someone with the intention of them being the recipient, being offered up as a trade for something else.

This is obviously just my opinion. I just wanted to know what other people think.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Ephemera kanzashi - first attempt on: July 15, 2007 06:31:20 AM
My other partner in the atp swap said she really loved ephemera so I kind of thought i could make a kanzashi brooch out of ephemera.

***I had this idea originally, and if it has been done before, I was not aware.

Anyway, the papers i used were bits of: a map, a chinese physics text book, a 1930's magazine of love stories, origami paper, a hell bank note and some handmade paper.  all of these papers were received by me in swaps.

here it is, i thought it turned out pretty good.  let me know what you think.   Smiley

14  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Getting image tags on buttons in new layout on: July 12, 2007 06:31:00 PM
My internet got shaped the other day so I only just realised this is an issue...

Would it be possible to get image tags on buttons in the menu bar accross the top and down the left hand side, so it is still possible to access these features (such as links to profile, book marks, replies to your posts etc) when browsing craftster with images switched off?

15  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / My Country Doesn't Have that Round 8 on: April 13, 2007 07:28:49 PM
Hey guys,

The MCDHT Swap Round 8 is on at the moment and Australia is a tad underrepresented at the moment (I'm the only Aussie participant Sad ).

If you'd like to check it out, the swap is going until the end of the month and a gallery has already been started!! Cheesy Cheesy There are quite a few non US participants from the UK and the rest of continental Europe if you're concerned that you only have a chance to recieve from a US participant.

Some of the countries include:

16  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / alleviating swap anxiety?? on: October 13, 2006 09:25:31 PM
Not sure if anyone else has had a similar issue but...

Sometimes in swaps, I find it hard to distinguish what the size of the items I'm sending are despite the numerous guidelines in place.  if possible, would it be OK to PM some pics of the items to the organiser or a swap mod and get them to suss things out like whether i should make more stuff or would this be unethical to let someone see my partners items before they receive them?  obviously i wouldn't show my partner and it's hard to discuss it with a partner in some detail without ruining the surprise.  Huh

17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / organiser who don't find angels on: October 02, 2006 03:13:34 AM
This doesn't actually apply to me but I was just wondering...

Is an organiser considered to have flaked if they send their own package but fail to organise swap angels for people who got flaked on?  I guess this isn't really flake-age but it would be good if there was some place that this could be noted, because then they sorta are failing in their duties as an organiser.
18  EUROPE / GERMANY / Anyone from Hamburg - was hoping for some tips. on: September 22, 2006 06:36:40 AM
Hi all you crafty Germans!!

I am going to Hamburg this December for 8 weeks on a student exchange.

I was hoping I might be able to pick up some tips on the following:

- Nice yarn stores that aren't too pricey
- Other craft supply stores (eg fabric, ribbon, buttons etc)
- Markets that sell antiques, souvenirs, bric a brac etc
- Some shops that sell nice German souvenirs

- Anything else that is worth a look in Hamburg.

My host family lives in a district called Neuwiedenthal.  I'm not sure how close that is to the actual city.

Thanks you!!!!

19  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Gift wrapping sub-board on: August 13, 2006 12:04:56 AM
Not sure if this has been suggested before...but wouldn't it be cool if there was a child board to the crafting for specific occaisions where people could post cool gift packaging ideas and techniques such as making rosettes, and doing nice and decorative folding with the actual wrapping paper.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / chunky scarf patterns? on: July 18, 2006 10:36:50 PM
I'm knitting a scarf for a friend who will be in France this December so she wants something to keep warm and I thought it'd be nice if I knitted her something.

The thing is, she's picked the yarn (Cleckheaton's Gusto - http://www.cleckheaton.biz/colour_range.asp?yarnid=7).  Any suggestions for something that isn't just plain old garter or stockinette stitch or a ribbed scarf?
