1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 6 days 6 holidays on: June 07, 2017 10:29:50 AM
Would anyone be up for a swap where you could pick 6 holidays, hallowe'en, birthday, easter, etc. that you enjoy and your partner would make you an item for each holiday? Opening up a present each of 6 days.

Your items could be, but wouldn't all have to be, holiday themed, just something that you would normally receive during that holiday. So if your partner picked Easter it wouldn't need to be a bunny or an egg, but maybe some chocolate. Of course some items would be holiday themed, but it would give some flexibility.

Any interest?

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Holiday Coat Ornament on: October 09, 2015 10:49:51 AM
I had to make an ornament for a swap so I took a couple of coat patterns I found online and combined them and added a hood. I sewed it by hand and added some yarn as the "fur" with snowflakes embroidered on the pockets.

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Decorate my space on: May 20, 2015 05:06:32 PM
Would anyone be interested in a decorate my space swap? I'm thinking any type of household item. Lamps, cushion covers, wall hangings, mirrors, casserole carrier, throws, etc.

I would try to match up people with similar tastes and perhaps different crafting skills.

If you're interested I'm open to any suggestions you may have on it.

Anyone interested in doing a Secret Santa set up as a round robin style where A sends to B who sends to C who sends to A? Maybe 1 large item? You'd have to have a wist or similar style wishlist to give your partner lots of ideas since they couldn't ask, unless they had a secret identity  Wink Any interest? any suggestions?

Details of swap:

The idea of this swap is to craft for your partner 12  items  based on their interests, going along with the idea of the 12 Days Of Christmas song. The items that you make DO NOT have to be the items IN the 12 days of Christmas song. The items sent/received can be BOTH everyday items and Christmas/Winter themed goodies. You will make 6 small items for days 12 to 7, for days 6, 5 , 4 & 3 you will make medium items and days , 2, & 1 will be large items. So that is 2 large, 4 medium and 6 smalls for a total of 12 days.

You will label the gift individually with the numbers 12-1, so that your partner knows which day is in which package(s). We will start opening the packages on December 14th with the #12 package. Inside would be one small thing until day 6 when they would be mediums. And on and on until on December 25th when you will open the #1 package which is one large item.

I would like to see that it is : 75% or more  handmade 25% store bought.

1. You must send ALL PM's to TAOJ and all PM's must have the subject line: 12 Days of Christmas MINI Swap 2008

2.You must post in the original thread at least once a week! This starts once partners are assigned. That is only about 10 posts.

3.PM's must be sent to TAOJ and your partner when you send and receive. If you are sending within the USA or Canada you must get a DC# / tracking # and send it to TAOJ and your partner. They cost an extra $.75 in addition to the postage price, in Canada they are free. If you are sending outside of your country, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping, it will be requested if there are any problems!!! This is mandatory!

4.When you open each days package, you will then need to post in the gallery. I ask that you post pictures within a reasonable amount of time. I know that they Holiday season can be quite hectic, but please get them posted within 5 days of opening. Posting pictures is a requirement for this swap! No feedback will be give unless you have pictures of your 12 packages. If you don't have a digital camera and cannot get access to one, please ask your partner to take pictures before they send.

5. The following items are NOT allowed in swap packages:
- Anything that is illegal in the U.S. or wherever you are sending your package to or from.
- Any items that have a legal age requirement to consume in the U.S. such as tobacco, alcohol, pornography etc.
- Mixed CDs containing copyrighted music or similar, including copied software, CDs, DVDs, etc
If you are uncertain please check Craftsters guidelines as well as your local post office

craftsters guidelines for swaps are as follows:
By Time
-Big = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Big = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

2. If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you and your partner live in the same country. I don't want anyone's package to go MIA with the lovely customs officials. Also, if you are sending baked goods, you may leave them out of your  package and send them individually so they arrive in a timely manner and don't spoil or go stale.

3. I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Because of the time of they year packages can get WET due to the post office/ups/etc leaving them on the doorstep AND some swappers have suggested that you also do this with anything you might send to a hot climate that might melt on your swap goodies.

4. Also, if you will be shipping TO a partner that is in a HOT climate during the swap send outs, please do not include any thing that might melt on their swap goodies. Think about wrapping them in a plastic baggie or something similar.

5. Here is some info from the USPS on the Flat Rate Boxes: these can be use for Domestic and International but the rates differ for International shipments. And if you purchase your postage online at usps.com or by paypal, com you get a small discount on the postage price. The Flat Rate boxes themselves are FREE (you still have to pay for postage ) from your local post office and also FREE if you get them online from the website usps.com, they will deliver them to you free of charge too!! Canada has some shipping envelopes that can be used within the country or region and prices will vary, but if you are sending something heavy they are a good choice.

6. I highly recommend that each of you put together a WIST. A WIST is a huge help for your swap partner. They get to look through all the things you have put into it to get a feel for what you like. Visit WISTS.com for more info.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your packages and other details about participating in a swap.
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Mini 12 Days of Christmas swap? on: September 26, 2008 10:16:14 AM
I know that some people are intimidated and just don't have the time to craft that much for the 12 days of Christmas swap so how about a mini one? I'm thinking basically the same idea - a present for each day, but only one item per day. So instead of 12 small items on day 12 it would be one small item. So days 12-7 would be small items (based on craftster guidelines of small), days 6-4 would be mediums and days 3-1 would be large. So you would be crafting 12 items, 3 large, 3 mediums and 6 smalls. And you could probably add in some supplies or something too if you wanted. Any interest?
