NEW RULE:  Newbies will not get credit or feedback on this swap unless they craft for their fellow August Babies!!!  You can put up you list if approved, but it will not count as a completed swap...


Swap name: August 2006 Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: alwaysinmyroom--I AM NOT AN AUGUST BABY (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: 8/01/06-8/31/06
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone unless other arrangements are made ahead of time
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

    * If your birthday is in August, then you can post your wishlist for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out.
    * Once I PM you and let you know you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better.   The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what your birthday is.
    * Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please.
    * Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in July for you to craft for someone.   If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for,what item, and I will send you their address.
    * If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door unless you communicate in advance that something will take a bit longer.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from you…you guessed it, negative feedback!
    * Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!
    * It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).
    * You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
    * Some people absolutely cannot send to people overseas for any number of reasons.  Please state at the beginning where you are so that we can respect this valid concern.
    *When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see that you have been chosen and what has been chosen.  It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.

Original idea thread and discussion located here
If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can post on the link above, or send me a PM with "August 2006 Birthday Swap " in the subject line.

                          Some carded wool so that I can make felt beads like here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21330.0
                          Or some cool felt beads

                          A food related reconned (sp?) tin a la https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106856.0
                          Or anything that is neat

                          Um, a tutuI always want to wear a tutu

                          A microscope slide necklace kit with some slides and copper/silver foil

                          Some shrinky dink paper so that I can make my own shrinky dinks

                          A satin mini top hat like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91957.0

                          this monster shoe needs to be on my big 8.5 US size feet

                          I dont know a cool necklace or a bracelet

                          Ooo, maybe some flower earrings?

                          1. handspun chunky yarn (oh, pretty please!)

                          2. an embroidered tank top (size sm.) with one of my favorite designs on it-- see below.

                          Oh, goodness, this is so exciting!

                          A little bit about me: I live in Washington state. I'm going to be 22 on Friday, August 25! Yay! I'm interested in languages of any kind, altered books, video games, and crafting in general.  I'm a quirky book nerd and generally described as a big kid, which suits me just fine might I add.

                          These are a few of my favorite things:
                          Tea; word inspired (dream, wish, curiosity, etc) jewelry; shadow boxes; my wonderful old-school silver charm bracelet; 80's Nintendo(especially Super Mario Bothers); Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland; lucid dreaming; sushi; traveling; Adult Swim; cupcake-inspired crafts; and ANYTHING to do with birds (my favorite animal.) So any crafts associated with these things would tickle me pink!

                          My much debated and obsessed-over wish list:

                          -I can't knit, so anything knitted would be awesome!
                          -I'm recently obsessed with the adorable creatures you craftsters are churning out: amigurumi animals and felted stuffies included.  Some of my favorite animals: BIRDS, deer, octopi, horseshoe crabs, dinosaurs, and pirates.  =)
                          -A rubber stamping or felting kit.
                          -Quirky stationary or notecards
                          -Anything raw-meat related, I don't eat it, but it sure does make me happy! (Look to my WIST if you think I'm crazy on this one!)  =)
                          -Altered book supplies
                          -Candy from my childhood: FunDip, candy buttons, pez, pop rocks, etc.
                            Gracias, sonjaboo!!!
                          -Anything Robot related
                          -ATCs Thanks, veganwater!!  I can't wait!
                          -Cute pillow cases for my new room this fall!
                          -Old art magazines or books
                          -Music you like, and think I will, too!  =) Thanks, marmalade bombs, I feel spoiled~
                          -Anything off of my WIST
                          -And finally a surprise!  I love surprises!
                             Thanks k8kre8!  =)

                          Lurk me:

                          Thanks so much for anyone who crafts for me!  I really appreciate it!

                          *EDIT:  I don't have a digi camera, only a cell-cam, so if you could take a photo before sending, I would be so gracious!  Thanks so much!

                          My 26th birthday is August 3rd, not only am I turning another year older-- I'm even acting more like a grown-up.  Since hurray hurray there are now mortgages to deal with.  Yep I'm moving into "our" first house   Cheesy(although in all reality the Bank owns it).

                          My dear boyfriend has already remarked that unless he "get's all crafty" and makes me something I won't be getting any birthday presents. None at all.  Sniff.   Cry

                          So I'm reaching out to you Craftster community.

                          Here is my official wish list

                          House Stuff

                          1) A "Bed Caddy" This neat thing sticks under the mattress and holds remotes, books, etc., canvas would be fine.   http://www.organize-it-online.com/itm_sidekick.html
                          I'll have to corral all the remotes in the room to one central location.

                          2) My kitchen will be decorated with a Coca-Cola theme.  My boyfriend collects Coke memorabilia and I've decided to showcase his collection of vintage bottles in the kitchen.  I'd love embroidered tea towels or kitchen towels with red accents. Or surprise me

                          3) test tube bud vases like https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76757.0

                          Just for Me

                          1) I'm finally getting a place to put a sewing machine in my new place and plan on teaching myself to sew.  I'd love a few books or even tutorials on basic sewing.  Materials and Supplies welcome too-- they needn't even be new.  I'd settle for old patterns and fat quarters.
                          Thanks in advance to Frogz for what I'm sure will be a cool sewing tutorial kit.
                          2) Wire cuff bracelets something like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24646.0

                          3) the ever famous jordy bag- in blues, florals or a fun vintage print

                          4) A pin or brooch. Fleted flowers, stars or the really cool tape measure rosette .  Link goes to example https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70126.0 or https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22722.0 or https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82680.msg778722#msg778722

                          5) Using vintage electronics to make necklaces or bracelets (I already have several earrings)

                          And surprises are welcome, of course. ...

                          About me--- I just moved, from a cramped, old, musty 3rd floor walk up in Cambridge Massachusetts to a split level ranch in an outer suburb of Boston.  Sure the commute is longer but darn it I have a yard and space to spread out my craft stuff.  My dear boyfriend whom I'm living with has promised me 1/2 of a room for craft stuff (the other 1/2 will be his "office").  I'll be unpacking over the next few weeks so something special just for me will brighten my day.  I also enjoy crochet, yoga, scrapbooking, cooking, antiques/vintage, geek-stuff.  I like blues, teals, greens (cool colors-- despite my astrological sign, I really don't like yellows, pinks, oranges or reds)

                          Thanks in advance Smiley
