I will be signing up. I compiled a list of idea that we can make from the swap ideas thread:

bathroom decor (I'd love to geekify my bathroom!)
a glasses case with a BBT quote
a shirt with a BBT quote or picture
nerd jewelry
a purse or bag made of some nerdy patterned fabric maybe
'd love a t-shirt and wallet

Do you have a thrift store nearby?  You could buy a newish shirt, recon it and add some fabulous screen printing, ink-jet iron on transfer, etc.  Some people might mind a used shirt, but I wouldn't.

Do you knit or crochet?  You can buy wool sweaters at Goodwill for $4.  My sister unravels them and knits them into something new.  Much cheaper than buying yarn!

Have you seen the stuff people are doing with ceramic pens here on Craftster?  The pens are fairly inepxpensive and many Craftsters used thrifted coffee mugs, bowls, etc.  I would LOVE a mug covered in geeky quotes.

Embroidery is always a cheap option.

Shrines require a Altoid tin or other cheap container + necessary craft supplies.  Doesn't everyone need a Sheldon shrine?   Grin

Anything DNA or Periodic Table related
A friend flow chart
Schrodinger's Cat
Bath & body products (Christmas episode)
A battle robot - can you knit that, gerbilgal?  That would be an awesome stuffie.
scarf or handwarmers embroidered with atoms or chemical molecules
Periodic table shower curtain or a scaled down version (I own that same curtain)
dying to try out those ceramic pens that are all the rage?  Put Big Bang quotes on coffee mugs, plates, etc!
Tissue box covers w/ nerdy theme
Chinese take-out boxes
germ stuffies (Sheldon's aversion to germs) see giantmicrobes.com
Bookmarks with quotes
The Doppler Effect (A stuffie of Sheldon dressed as the Doppler effect!!)
That's how we roll in the Shire.  I don't know what to do with that.  I just like that quote. Thought of something!  Knitted Frodo ears.  He he
Howard's belt buckles!!!
A booklet titled "Howard's Guide to Picking up Chicks"
A Howard dickie
A Sheldon shrine
A luminous fish
Engineering is the slow younger brother of physics.  I just like that quote too.  Smiley
A quote wall hanging with interchangable quotes (See the one I received in the OTT 20 gallery!)
PMS (Perpetual Motion Squad) Shirts from the Physics Bowl episode
-8πα (the janitor's correct answer to the final question.  Also Physics bowl episode)
Another random quote: Sheldon, this is a non-optional social convention.
Anything related to loop quantum gravity and/or string theory
A little polymer clay grasshopper drink.  Raj drank those so he could talk to his blind date.
Warm kitty, soft kitty...
There is great Big Bang flair on Facebook
..sheldon & leonard shirts
...embroidered quotes like "I'm too evolved to drive" (something like that)
...a polyclay time machine
Star Wars bed sheets (okay, I don't know that I could sew a bed sheet?)
So many great quotes from the show - maybe note cards with quotes on them, or jewelry with quotes.
needle felted griffin
sneezing gibbon towel
a Raj Mahal
your very own Leonard Nimoy

I this might help giving us ideas on stuff we can make.

I missed the yarnie hunt swap and wow, this one is really tempting me.

gerbilgal, those are some AMAZING ideas. And I agree don't we all need Sheldon shrines? ;P

I'd really, really love to take part in this - done my first Craftster swap recently, I've sent and it's been received and posted but my feedback not added/completed yet (as the swap's still ongoing) - can I enter this at all or will I need to ask my swap organiser very nicely to give me feedback first?

will you take me to gang practice? yis?
