3  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Teenagers Swap!- One angel needed urgently. on: September 21, 2008 11:23:08 AM
I'm saddened to say that although I organized the Teenagers swap and everything went pretty well: my swp partner flaked on me!! First she 'lost' her package in the post then a string of excuses followed an now she's out of contact so I have to take up a swap angel!

Swap Name: Teenagers Swap!
Original Thread link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238309.0
Gallery thread link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246705.0
# of Flakers: 1

The teenager swap basically consisted of everyone being teenagers and you had to do 1 large, 1 medium and 2 small based on the 4 things that that swapper loves. Here are my loves:

1.)Musicals! ( Chicago, Wicked, RENT! Moulin rouge, Spamalot, The Lion King, list could go on forever...)

2.)Amigurumi or Kawaii-type cute things!!

3.)Tea, teacups,teapots,teaparties

4.)Either Tim burton films (Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, etc.) or films with audrey hepburn or marilyn monroe in them (you know, those sort of classy 1940/50's films )

Please take this up only if you can send within a month as I really want to get this wrapped up because I'm in my last year of school and its kinda chaos right now!!
4  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / *FOUND* One Amazingly kind and groovy swap angel needed for Teenagers Swap! on: July 06, 2008 02:21:37 PM
Hey guys!
I have unfortunately had one girl flake *sigh* so I need somebody to do a swap package based on any of the four themes that her swapper (superspork) chose (each swapper got four things for her partner to base the swap on)
Its one large, one medium and two small Smiley

Superspork's four things were:
4 Things for your swapper to base their crafts on:

" 1.) I absolutely adore the cabaret/carnival style that Panic at the disco had and that the dresden dolls have, with   mimes and contortionists and bearded ladies, that are kind of twisted... http://www.dresdendolls.com/
 2.) i dig cutesy stuff, like the little apple icon where one apple tells the apple core "you're so hardcore"... that style of  drawing has got a name, but i don't know it...
 3.) postsecret is absolutely love
 4.) indie music, like Professor Murder, and cool pictures to go along with it "

She lives in the USA incase you'reworried about distance and she doesn't have any allergies or special requests.

Heres the thread:

Heres the gallery:

Thankyou in advance SOOOOOOooooOOoo much to whoever takes this on Smiley

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Swap for Teenagers? on: February 07, 2008 05:05:05 AM
So I've noticed there are some teengers on here! *woo!* and I was wondering if any of you lot would be interested in doing a swap for teenagers only?
You would basically say 3 things about yourself and base the swap around that, but every swapper would be a teen!
Thoughts anyone?
