Hey aschenebly - I want to apologize for everything.  Things have been really crazy, and I've talked with Humble...she's got an angel for you, and I'm definitely going to make it up for you after everything settles down on my end.  I won't forget about you, I promise!!!

the bag is absolutely amazing!  i'm am completely stunned.  and i love that the patch is removable - b/c it might be slightly inappropriate for work or a biz trip, etc.  Smiley  but when i'm out and about, i'm totally rockin' the cowgirl!

6  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / needed - angel for subculture 2 swap - FOUND! on: October 24, 2005 05:20:25 AM
Details of swap:
This was inspired by the first (and rather successful) Subculture Swap that gallery can be found here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28996.0.  The idea is to make and receive crafts/goods based on a particular subculture or style.  Some examples (but not all!) are: rockabilly, surf, punk, emo, hippie, glam, goth, boho, beatnik, mod, psychobilly, anglophile, burlesque, flapper, etc.  Heres a helpful list of some subs - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_subcultures

You will specify which subculture theme you identify with or would like to receive.  Provide as many details as you wish for your partner. 

Please be sure to send the equivalent of 1 main item and 2 additional items (this can vary you may choose to make several smaller items or put all your effort into one really kick-ass piece).  Use your best judgment and have fun!  The theme can be carried out in any way you see fit, be it clothing, accessories, mix cds, artwork, paper crafts. 

and the recipient:
Craftster username: beatnik_chik


What subculture(s) are you interested in? "hippie-christian-geek-writer/artist" haha.. yeah, hippie.

Would you prefer crafting for a specific sub? other hippies would be nice, but i'm totally open to crafting for other subcultures, too... it might be fun to see what I can make.

Is there a sub you definitely would not want to craft for? I would be slightly put out by some very hardcore sexual things, but generally, no.

OPTIONAL QUESTIONS (may be helpful for your partner)

Briefly describe what your subculture means to you:
A hippie is a person who takes care of people, and of the earth.  Who eats well, lives well, and tries to be as peaceful and "negative impact-free" as possible.

Who are the icons of your subculture in your opinion?
Anyone who attended Woodstock  ...  influential people, though, were Gandhi, Jean Vanier, the Beatles, Jack Kerouac (I know, a beat writer, but come ON!), Ken Kesey, Bob Marley, Neil Young...

What crafts do you usually do? I knit, crochet, sew, bead, do macrame/hemp stuff.

Is there anything youd specifically like to receive or need?  I would love a dress, but that's a pretty tall order.  I love beads and small accessory things, dangley feathery things, earrings,  hair accessories... ooh!  like those "roach clip" hair barettes with leather cord and feathers on them!  Those are cool!  I have long, thin hair that doesn't like to stay put.

Favorite colors: Autumn colours, and red.

Anything you dislike: People who don't care about the world around them!     I don't like "rhinestone" things...  or anything in powder pink unless it's an ironic statement.

Do you collect anything:  Books.  Poetry books from the beat generation or books by T.S. Eliot.

Shirt size: T-shirts?  uh... in Hanes styles, I'm like a medium, but I have really big boobs, so it depends.  How about I say my chest measurement is 42-46 in.

Skirt/pants size: size 10-11

Wrist: medium size wrist... I can fit bangles from the thrift store with difficulty.

Neck: larger than average?

Ring: BIG... 7 1/4!

Ears pierced? yes

Any allergies?  I can't ingest Citrus. For earrings, I can't have really cheap metals... surgical steel or precious metal is okay.

Any other comments: I'm excited to swap!! Yay!

ok everyone, i have to go on a biz trip for about a week to windy chicago!  i will not have access to internet, so i won't be able to check my PMs or the board until probably next thurs or friday.  i'm sorry for the inconvenience.  when i get back, i will be checking if all the "late" people have sent.  also, i've held off on giving our two possible flakers negative feedback until i get back.  that gives them a whole week to contact me.  if by next week i haven't heard anything, i will be organizing swap angels, and sending something myself. 

sooo...i hope everyone has a good week!
