Details of swap:

The idea is to make one tiny craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items should be 4"x4" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  An ATC (artist trading card) is tiny; a full-size drawing is not.  (If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!)

What else would you like to tell you partner?  (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, etc.)

A few other things to follow:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT 10 in the title of all PM's

3.   A DC# is not required since the packages are very small but it is still encouraged if mailing to your same
     country.  In all cases, please save your receipt and be prepared to show me a copy if there are problems with
      with your package arriving in a timely fashion

4.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you MUST
      inform me and your partner.

5.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

            If you send on time and follow the guildelines, I will give you a "Good Swapper"
            If you send late (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
            If you send late but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination,
               I will give you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
            If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

192  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ribbon bikini top on: January 03, 2007 09:21:47 AM
This is much more fun than functional and not anything I would personally wear but it was still fun to make.

I used Christmas ribbon and a size 6.0 hook.  I had planned to make it all gold but ran out of ribbon before the second 1/2 was finished, thus it became a multi-colored bikini top.

193  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / 2006 Christmas Stockings on: December 16, 2006 09:48:03 AM
I was involved in this year's Stocking Swap and decided to make a quilted stocking (which I've never done before) - I was so happy with it but I had to send it away!


So, I decided to make myself a similar one and this is it:

194  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gigantic Candy Cane on: December 08, 2006 07:25:38 AM
This is another item I found while decorating yesterday.  I made it a few years ago and the pattern was from the Crafting Traditions magazine.

It's 24" from the bottom to the top of the curve.

195  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Christmas Lights on: December 07, 2006 01:41:18 PM
I was decorating this morning and found some lights I had made a few years ago and thought I would share them with you.  They were originally meant for a swap but once I was done them, I just couldn't part with them  Grin

This is about 1/4 of the string

and, a single 'bulb'

I should add that this is not my own design - it was from a pattern.
196  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for suggestions on how to border my purple/yellow quilt on: November 27, 2006 06:40:58 PM
I've been collecting purple and yellow fabric since the month after I joined Craftster in January (all through swaps) and I'm now done piecing all the squares and am in the process of putting them together.  That part, when finished, will cover just the top of a queen size bed but I want to add a border so that it hangs down the sides.  That's where I'm kind of stuck.  I'm using a pinwheel pattern and have approximately 40 different yellows and 40 different purples all mixed together.  What I can't decide is what to do for a border - should I use a solid yellow, printed yellow, solid purple, printed purple or introduce a totally different color?

Any suggestions?

197  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My 3 teapots on: November 08, 2006 11:30:43 AM
I used to do lots of cross stitch when I was younger but then left it behind when I learned other crafts.  A few years ago, my sister-in-law gave me this teapot for my birthday:


and I really liked it and when she told me that she had other patterns, I borrowed the book and over time have completed 2 more:


I have another one on the go which I hope to finish soon and a few more I'd like to make.
198  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Farm Fresh Produce on: November 08, 2006 11:24:17 AM
Yet another project I have painted (this new computer is so much fun!)

199  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 3 snowmen projects on: November 08, 2006 11:20:59 AM
Now that we have a computer at home that can handle my sons camera, I'm having fun posting pictures of things I've made Grin

These are 3 snowmen projects that I have painted over the last few years.

           In my dining room:

                                  In my kitchen:


This is a shelf sitter and he's usually on the opening between our kitchen and living room but the lighting was so poor there, I had to put him on the china cabinet:

200  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Stacked penguins on: November 08, 2006 07:51:29 AM
It's probably tacky to 'revive' your own post but I forgot I had posted this way back in 2006 and so I was going to post them today and realized, after some searching, that they were already on here but I updated the photo since I'm better at taking pictures now and added the close up.

I made this stack of little penguins in 2006 and thought I would share them with you.

With the exception of the base, they are made for one piece of wood and that meant that everywhere there was an opening between the penguins, I had to drill a small hole and then thread my saw blade through that before starting to cut - it was one of the most challenging cutting jobs I had done up to that date.


Close up of my favorite guy (wouldn't you look like this if someone was stepping on you?)
