1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Group TM Patch swap on: September 16, 2017 04:30:59 PM
I know I've never been the TM Patch swap organiser, and I wasn't really looking to be this time either. But during the most recent round, someone suggested that we could switch the rules and everyone send to everyone. It was ultimately shot down, but I figured we could talk about it now.

Would the usual TM suspects like to do a group mail out swap? Like groups of six, so you mail to 5 people, or something along those lines?
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Sweets Swap on: August 07, 2017 04:44:59 PM
Not sure about size requirements (though I generally like to go up to at least medium, so there's a chance for stencilling), but I was thinking a swap for sweets. Ice cream, candy, popsicles, cake, muffins, etc. Maybe you like Lisa Frank brightness, maybe you like your sweets with a side of goth and want a cupcake-and-crossbones. But I'd love to organise something, if anyone is interested.

Onyxnox will be angelling for SonjaBoo

For the Bird Bee Butterfly swap, you'll need to send one large, one medium, and one small. One should be a bee item, one a bird item, one a butterfly item. The original thread is here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452476.0

The gallery is here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452647.0

SonjaBoo has an address in the US. A relevant portion of her sign-up is:
What kinds of bee items might you want?
I LOVE bees and am an avid gardener. (Not sure if that helps with inspiration or not!) I would love anything for the garden or my home, honestly. Would love any sort of bee pendant. (I also love the design of hives and honeycombs.) I have a Pinterest board dedicated to bees, so you might find some inspiration there!
What kinds of bird items might you want?
I also adore birds and my husband is an amateur nature photographer. Songbirds are probably my favorite -- robins, bluebirds, chickadees, cardinals, etc. I also enjoy flamingos, parrots, eagles, peregrine falcons, kestrels, you name it. Smiley I would have room to put a bird house or bird feeder up, or again anything for the garden/yard. I love stuff for my kitchen as well. Also love any sort of papery goodness, bags or pouches, etc. (Honestly, these are just ideas. For any of these, please feel free to do what inspires you! I will love anything you made with love.  Smiley )
What kinds of butterfly items might you want?
Butterflies are always a favorite too. I love the blue morphos or monarchs especially, but anything would be gorgeous!

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
For this swap, you'll have two partners, and make two sets of 8 cards, or 16 total. Unlike previous notecard swaps I've done, this time you'll make a distinct SET. Whether that's making eight of the same layout with different papers, or using the same collection of papers with different designs, or a repeating motif, it's up to you. The point is making a obvious group of cards.

Cards must be at least 4x5 inches, or equivalent dimensions. They should definitely be note/birthday card sized, not miniatures. They also need to have envelopes, which can be crafted or premade.

This swap is oriented more towards the maker than the receiver. You don't need to tailor your cards to your partners wishes. In fact, feel free to make them during the sign-up period. That said, please avoid commonly controversial themes; religion, nudity, swearing, etc.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

Can you take pictures? If not, please tell your partners to take them before sending out.
Will you avoid potentially offensive themes?
What techniques are you likely to use?
If your partner is inclined to customize cards (not required) what are some themes and colours you like?

Details of swap:
A classic One Tiny Thing swap! You'll be making one thing, and that thing will fit in a metaphorical box with 4x4x4 inch dimensions. Please make something you have a high skill level at, the metaphorical box should be full of something ~awesome~. It should also be full of something to chase the winter away. Flowers, baby animals, chocolate bunnies, eggs, pastels and bold bright colours: if it screams spring that's good enough for me.
