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:

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 2 claims outstanding at a time unless you are FOC, then you may have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time.

7 - 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 both Organisers and the Reciever.  At that point, please request the address from the receiver.

9 - Everyone must make at the least, one claim per month.

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 we 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!

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, my name is Jessica, I'm 25 and I live in upstate New York. I just moved into a new house (my first rental!) and I'd love some new stuff to decorate! We have a very bohemian living room, and one of our back rooms is astronomy themed. I love Steampunk and geeky stuff, and I'm never opposed to anything with zombies or cephalopods on it!  I'm not really allergic to anything, but mold, dust, and flowery scents make me sneeze.

My favorite color (and the color I primarily wear) is black. I like accents in red (bright or dark) and silver/gray. I do like brown, olive/sage green, and dark orange, but I don't wear them too terribly much. I hate pink and most purples (royal purple is alright), I don't like pastels or white, and I'm not that fond of blue (teal/aquamarine is ok). Neons are alright as a little accent. Wow that sounded picky  Wink. I wear an xl/2xl woman's shirt (although I have more than enough tees right now!) and I can give anyone more precise measurements if they need them! My favorite accessories are fingerless gloves and scarves (if my pinterest wasn't completely obvious...) and I'm starting to wear more hats as well! Ok, that should be it... My Pinterest link is

Alchamy513's Pinterest

I'd say all my boards are game, but pay particular attention to anything to do with clothing and accessories, and my "Future House" board.  Wink

Hey!  Im Stacey from Baltimore, Maryland.  I am a full time student and mama who just so happens to have completed my fall semester early enough to have some crafty fun before I start back in 2012.  Anyway, Im here to play to help get some holiday presents completed for the many lovely individuals in my life.  We have no allergies though we dont love smoke.  Please note that the board labeled Kids is really for Olivia but Pinterest was being dramatic when I tried to edit it.  Lame, I know.

My Pinterest link:  http://pinterest.com/smlounsbury/

All of my boards are game.  Well, except the Stuff Ive Made board.  Wink

Hello, I am Beth and I live in Michigan near Detroit. I have a greyhound named Hallo who I love a ton and a boyfriend Sam who I love too Wink. I really do not have a specific style I just like what I like and the boards to check out on my pinterest are any except for crafty things I made, tutorials (those are things I am checking out to make) and halloween since it just passed.
Feel free to also use the quotes should you enjoy making hoops or wall art.
I do have allergies to cats but as long as they are not crawling all over what you send I should be okay.
I am not opposed to any colors but am not fond of pastel shades and a large amount of florescent. I do not wear earrings but I do like bracelets (7in) and necklaces (16-18 in)
I wear a medium shirt and that is all I can think of right now!

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 and cross stitch.  I think you can figure out my style from my Pinterest boards.  I like bright colors, can't stand mint green and baby blue and if you are going to make me a hoop, I'd prefer a solid colored background rather than a print.  If you're unsure about something PM me and I'll gladly answer your questions.

Here's the link:  Pinterest

All my boards are open to pick from with the exception of the food related ones, Things I've Made and Letters of the Alphabet (that's just there for my fun.)  Feel free to use anything from the Signs and Sayings board for hoops or wall art.

I just added a new board called Paper Crafts - if anyone is talented in this area and would like to make me one of the shadow boxes, I'd love you for a very long time  Smiley

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!   HUZZAH!  We have 3 daschunds (or close enough) in the house.  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.    Or daydreaming.
