1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another cherry blossom/sakura swap on: April 12, 2007 12:14:49 PM
I'm not sure what round it would be- but I'd love to organise/ participate in a chery blossom swap.

Anyone interested?  Smiley
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Send me your supplies and I'll make something with it swap on: April 12, 2007 11:41:54 AM
I've seen someone post about a swap like this on their blog- where you send your partner supplies and your partner makes items from those supplies. You can use things in your stash, but can't buy anything and everything your partner sends you must be used in the making of something. You then send the completed items back to your partner!

I think we would have to restrict who could be in the swap- like you will have had to done at least 1/2/3/however many swaps successfuly. Becuase you need to know a person can be trusted- before you send them your much loved supplies. I'm not saying newbie swappers aren't trustworthy- but I would feel secure sending to someone who will send my stuff back, if you get what I mean!

I think this could be a lot of fun!  Smiley

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My twist on the Rapunzel scarf! on: March 14, 2007 04:44:50 AM

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My boy lollipop!!! A skirt!!! Cute candy inside!!! on: March 14, 2007 04:36:45 AM
Smiley Hello, this is my first skirt, that actually worked out ok, apart from the wonkyness- but you can't really tell- so I won't go there. I got this cute fabric in a swap. I was going to make pj pants from it, but then I saw this post:

Au revoir!  Wink
7  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Project Catwalk-helppppppppp on: March 01, 2007 08:18:52 AM

My TV is virgin media, and they have just droppped the sky channels! So that means no more project catwalk.

So I was wondering if anyone who has sky still would video record Project catwalk and send it to me? I will make you something in return, or even pay you!

Please, i know it's so rude- but there's only a few episodes left- and I don't want to miss them!

PM me or reply here!

Ok this is my clock, it's wood- sanded and shaped and painted pink. Then covered with a pink material which is glittery. For the handles I used acrylic!



9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / What shall i do? on: February 26, 2007 10:27:07 AM
Ok so I'm co-organising the 1950's swap. The organiser is really busy so I'm helping out. However I have a big problem and I don't know what to do!

A swapper says that she sent to her partner a few weeks ago, she gave me a dc number- but it was only 13 digits long- DC's are normally 20 digits long. The DC did not exsist. However she says that she went to the post office and they told her it had been delivered, but how would she know without proper tracking?

The swapper's partner thinks that perhaps the package she sent could be sent pack to her, as obviously the other package is either not sent or lost in the post.

I've been keeping in contact with both swappers but I don't know what do, do i post for an angel? or do something else?
