41  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / owl project bag on: January 01, 2011 09:11:05 AM
I made this bag for psyche in the Mini 12 Days swap.  I'm very happy with how it turned out:

I used the "Jiffy Tote" pattern from Pearl Louise Designs.

I made this for psyche in the Mini 12 days swap.  I took royalty free stock photos, printed them on fabric with bubble jet set, then quilted it.  I'm so happy with how it turned out!

43  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: 2010 Advent Calendar Swap. on: January 01, 2011 07:00:44 AM
I wanted to post photos of what I sent Jackie K.

The advent calendar, which had a crochet pattern and a chocolate in each pocket:

12 of the days had a pair of christmas ornaments:

There were two necklaces, and a brooch:

Placemats and coasters:

An angel ornament:

Then no photos of the rest...some days had bars of lindt chocolate with recipes, some days had craft kits (a quilting kit I put together, a painting kit I put together, and 2 bought Christmas craft foam kits).  I think that was it!

46  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Invite Your Partner Round 17 (Sign-ups Jan 1 - 31st; Send-out by Feb 28th) on: January 01, 2011 05:38:13 AM

Discussion thread for IYP17
Gallery for IYP17!!

(Description shamelessly taken from previous IYP swap - thank you Goldfishpollywog and SuperHooker!!)

Heres how it works:

In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me ((gatheredthreads and sweety28303))   with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

Swappers may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may have no more than two partners.

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like. Unless you choose otherwise. Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM gatheredthreads and sweety28303, and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.
- you cannot sign up for this swap if you are still currently late in any IYP swaps.

Even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she/he says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. once you do send, you will have positive feedback again, BUT this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.  


ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM gatheredthreads, sweety28303 and each other with mailing information.  Please also send your mailing info to your partner.
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizers with a DC number when you do.
5. PM your partner and organizers when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless you PM us. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you. In this case, you still need to post in the gallery about what you received.
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!

I just updated my thread with some super cool stuff! (Link is in my signature)

Also, one interesting fact:  I both sent and received a fabric covered journal for Day 5.

The journal cover is printed on an inkjet, with bubble jetset solution. I was so excited for you to open this one; I think it was my favorite. The book is one of the hardcover journals from Staples, when you need to replace it.

The crochet book is what I learned to crochet from!

And yes, the fabrics are hand painted and dyed. I should have included little notes, but I wrapped in a hurry.

Ok, I will start it in January  Grin

Belladune, the sign ups will be for the whole month, to give people time to find partners.  So you can sign up mid-January, if it is not full  Cheesy

You're ahead of me! Tongue
I'm starting to get worried about how i'm going to keep mine intact, there's only so far that i trust bubblewrap and polystyrene

I feel for you.  I hate packaging fragile things.  Mine is pretty durable; I think you could safely drop it, step on it, and toss it around like a ball.  A few times anyway...
