Details of swap:
Please do not post in the thread until you have been approved by the organiser.  You will not be approved until you post in the discussion/gallery thread and have sent your questionnaire to the organiser.  The discussion/gallery thread is here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392106.0

1 - This swap is NOT chain style.  You may choose from anyone's list once they are posted.

2 - This swap is for either one medium or three small items for each claim.  A medium item is one that takes 2 or more hours, $10 - $30, some examples are a single necklace or bracelet or a scarf.  A small item is one that takes 2 or less hours, $10 or less, some examples are earrings/wallets/pouches/bookmarks.

3 - Once you have been approved, you may post in the list thread.  Your post should look like this:
         - your location and a brief bio (include allergies in red please)
         - your Pinterest link
         - list of boards that are to be used for this swap, or simply say something like "all my boards are game"

4 - This swap is for crafted items, not supplies.  However, you may feel free to put 'extras' in your packages if you like.

5 - Remember, the more items and bigger variety of items you have on your Pinterest; the more likely it is for you to be chosen.

6 - You may have up to 3 claims outstanding at a time.

7 - It is possible that you may not be claimed at all.  In that case, you will not receive a swap angel.  Swap angels will only be provided if you are flaked on.  If you are flaked on, you will only receive an angel for as many packages as you have sent.  If you were claimed for 3 packages and you sent 2 packages and one package was flaked on - you would not receive a swap angel.

8 - When you wish to choose someone, please send a PM to the Organiser and the Reciever.  At that point, please request the address from the receiver.

9 - Required: good communication; PM to choose someone; PM the DC# or receipt; PM when you receive as well as posting a 'Thank You' in the gallery (even if you can't take photos).  Please put "Pinterest Swap" in the subject line of all PMs.  At the minimum, please tell me if it is a send or receive, the senders username, receivers username and the item.  Otherwise I may be a tad crazy trying to figure it out. Cheesy

I'm Dawn, I live in mid-Michigan.  I've worked at a college for almost 10 years, before that I ran restaurants! Smiley  I have two children, one 16 and one 10 and I've been married for 12 years.  I like offbeat stuff, dry humor, traveling, reading, documentaries of all sorts...I'm pretty easy to figure out from my Pinterest (I think).  If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me, I hop on and off all day most of the time. Smiley

My Pinterest:  Pinterest

All my boards are open to craft from or be inspired from!

I'm Cindy and I live in Alberta, Canada.  I've been married for 26 years and we have 2 sons, ages 20 and 22, and they are both getting married in 2012.  I work part-time at a doctor's office.  On my days off I like to crochet, quilt, cross stitch and occasionally paint.  I think you can figure out my style from my Pinterest boards.  If you're unsure about something PM me and I'll gladly answer your questions.

Here's the link:  Pinterest

Boards I'd like you to pick from are:  Crafts others could do for me
                                                 Cross stitch patterns
                                                 Odds & Ends
                                                 Polymer Clay
                                                 Signs & Sayings (I put this one on for inspiration
                                                                        I'd like any of these made
                                                                        to hang on the wall so feel free
                                                                        to use whatever form you
                                                                        want to create something)

hi... I'm Mindy and I live in SW Florida....I have been a Montessori teacher for about 15 years now. 95% of the time I LOVE what I do, the other 5% is usually ruined by the parents not the children. I am a single mom of 3, 2 kids.. (a son 15, a daughter 12) and a rescue mom to my wonderful ShiTzu "Tinkerbell" (who, mind you, came with her name). I'm a pretty mellow laid back individual, living life with the "Life is Good" motto!... the grass is never greener on the other side! I'm also a firm believer that COFFEE makes the world spin.....I'm a little, well maybe A LOT OCD, but it typically works out for the best.....I love exploring new crafts, and can usually figure out just about anything.... I'm not real good about following patterns, because I always want to make things a bit different so that its a one of a kind ..... whenever possible, I will always strive to.....REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE!!!

My style/likes/wants/needs are pretty apparent on my pinterest boards, but feel free to ask any questions!!

All of my boards are open for inspiration, unless they are for someone else...example... "wedding ideas for LOULOU"... "my darling daughter"

the "tutorial/ideas for others" board is mixed with things for me as well as others....  if something jumps out at you, shoot me a PM and I will let you know why its on there.

My name is Robin.  I live in Portland, OR (U.S.) and I am a full time PhD student.  I am also the mother of preschooler extraordinaire, Aria Jae.   I love handmade and I love surrounding my child with handmade.  

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.  I just started teaching a college course this term and would love some great jewelry to dress up my work outfits.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk (as in the green guy). We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.

With the exception of the board titled, "stuff I should make and gift," all other boards are free game.  Exact replicas are not necessary so please feel free to get creative and have fun...

Hi everyone!!  I'm Rebecca and I live near Charlotte, NC.  I teach music in an elementary school (grades K-5) and I love it!  I have two after school ensembles that rehearse and perform throughout the year.  I am engaged to be married next October! Cheesy  HUZZAH!  We have 3 daschunds (or close enough) in the house.  I agree with a lot of the things that OGD said!  Coffee makes the world go round, my tire-cover on my Jeep Liberty says "Life is Good", Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!, I listen to ALL kinds of music.  I don't care for some of the rap music with profane/offensive lyrics but my iPod is loaded up with a bit of everything.  I read constantly and as far as crafts go I crochet (first and foremost), I knit, embroider, play with polymer clay, dabble in jewelry and fiddle with paper crafts!

Just about everything can be used for inspiration.  Please don't use the Men I Lust for board...  that's just for fun.  Smiley  Or daydreaming.  Roll Eyes  

I think some of the best boards to use on there would be knitted things, crocheted things, steampunkery, fibers, places to visit (I would LOVE Paris), Inspiration, Nature I love, Words, Color, Music, Meditation, Embroidery, Quilted things, My Bohemia, Art Journal Goodness, Bibliophila, Pretty Baubles....  you get the idea!

Hi, I live in Oklahoma City with my boyfriend and our little Yorkie mix, and I'm a bartender by trade. My favorite colors are blues, greens and other ocean-y colors, black, reds and pinks. I love crafting, books and reading (especially fantasy and supernatural genres), camping, travel, witchy and magical things, fairy tales, mythology, the list goes on and on...

My Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/redpopsicles/

Relevant Boards: Very Crafty Things and Halloween (I'll add to this list if I add any other boards)

So excited!
Im Amie. Im 28 years old, happily married for a year and live in Michigan. I have a 9-month old kitten named Milo. Been crafting and doing art since I could walk practically! I work full time with teen girls in a boarding school. I have two online businesses. I am a HUGE University of Michigan football fan.


All of my boards and likes are fair game. My Style will give you ideas on colors I like and stuff I would wear. Handmade Stuff I Love, Art and Prints and the DIY and Tutorials would be good places to get inspiration on ideas. Good Eats might be challenging, but if you want to make me something with pumpkin, chocolate, or peanut butter I wont complain!  Grin
 For Our Home are things I like design wise,  to decorate with or things we could use in our apartment. For Kitty is a small list, but hes easy to please (ie: catnip or fur).

If you need more specifics on likes/dislikes, sizes, colors, etc. PM me

I also have an extensive craft supply collection of just about anything, so if you want to work out little extras to include with packages, let me know!  Cheesy
