6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Animal Crossing Swap? on: November 23, 2008 05:27:29 AM
Is anyone interested in doing an Animal Crossing themed swap? I've seen there have been ones in the past, but I'd like to do one now!

I love this game - I play on the Nintendo DS. Here is a link to the gallery from one of the previous swaps:

I was thinking that it could consist of crafting items based on your partners favourite resident, for instance, a Blathers teapot cosy anyone?
Or a Kid-Kat baseball jersey?
Maybe a Brewster Milk Jug?
Or what about a K.K Slider iPod cosy?

Me and Baa Me Chick are both sending a little late due to work commitments and broken cars. Items are finished, just waiting to get the chance to get to the post office! I hate it when life gets in the way of crafting!!

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sock monkeys and racism? on: November 14, 2008 06:51:20 AM
One was made of a brown sock and one was made out of a grey striped sock. They were both presents for friends (grown ups) so I made them in more drab colours than usual, and I chose brown because that's the colour monkeys often are in the wild... not for any other reason. I feel a bit picked on for no real reason and let down by people's quick to judge attitude.  Huh   Sad
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Sock monkeys and racism? on: November 13, 2008 03:08:13 AM
I have a question I want to ask - do people consider making sock monkeys to be racist or offensive in any way? The thought has not crossed my mind until this morning when I find that I have an offensive comment on my blog referring to two sock monkeys I made, in which I am asked if I am racist or just ignorant? I don't understand this and it has really upset me.

I know its just a comment on a blog and there are a lot of weirdos out there that write all sorts of nuts things just to insight people in to feeling bad... but its still really upset me  Cry

I don't consider sock monkeys to be at all racist on their own. I could only imagine them to be racist if they were used and talked about in derogatory ways concerning minority groups somehow. I just never think of them like this! Sock monkeys are joyful animals that are cute and fun to make - they are nothing about marginalizing people. But maybe I am naive and unaware of what other people think.

What else do people think about this? Is it fair to ignore this comment or should I respond to it directly? I guess I feel so upset because I have been judged unfairly and very inaccurately by someone I don't know and doesn't know me.  Cry
