Details of swap:
Please do not post in the thread until you have been approved by the organizer. This Board is for lists only.  The discussion/gallery thread is located here.  Please post as soon as possible after signing up so we know you have found the thread and that you are getting updates.  

This is a pinterest swap, meaning that your fellow craftsters will claim you for something you have pinned on your board.  Communication is key for happy swappers.  If there are boards you do not want people to claim from please put that information when you post your pinterest link.  If you want items to look as close as possible to the items pinned or if you are okay with creative interpretation, please make note of that as well. Remember the more information you post, the more likely someone will make you something you love.  Cheesy  Thank you!

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 Organizers and the Receiver.  At that point, please request the address from the receiver.

9 - Everyone must make at 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.

10 - Please try to remember to list the items you are receiving in your post once you have been claimed for them.

If you want to participate, information to send to both organizers:

Name of swap
Craftster username

Your real name

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.  If you craft from her party board...I'll give you the biggest cyber hug EVER!  Cheesy

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...

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.  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 but can't stand mint green and baby blue.  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.)

Last month I 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

I'm Leann.  I live in Michigan in the United States.  I'm a graphic designer by day and a crafter and netflix junkie by night. Smiley I'm single with no children, except a cute dog named Hazel.

I'm a child at heart. I love made up monsters and everything cute.  I'm not a fan of pastel or light pink, but I love all other colors.

All of my boards are free to pick from with the exception of the Kwality Monsters which are ones that I've made.

Hello hello!  I'm Jessica, and I live in NYC with my boyfriend + 3 cats!  I've mostly been using pinterest as a great distraction from work, but I promise to move things off the old school "wists.com" and onto my pinterest tonight.  Oh, and to ruthlessly steal everything off of your boards.

I love pink + grey, black + blue, mostly dark or somber colors.  I love artwork and I have a whole wall for hoops, but not many hoops (hint hint).  I love musicals and reading and rainy days.

My pinterest is: http://pinterest.com/yumjello01/
And obviously anything off of "wish list"is fair game - craft ideas is a combination of techniques I want to try, and things I THINK I can pull off but unless it says "gift idea" or is about Christmas wrapping (which half of it is) feel free to do it for me!  Funny things is a source of inspiration for possible hoops or art or anything you might put words on - I'll work on making it better, I promise!

Looking for book page paper flowers for my sister's wedding!  Will do personal swaps/swaps for supplies (available listed here) Thanks!

Hello! My name is Cady and I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and our 3-year-old (almost 4 - yikes!) son Max. I'm a full time student and stay at home mom.

I love purple, dragons, geeky stuff, and earrings. You will notice a complete absence of clothing for me - let's keep it that way. Max loves trains and animals the best.

Please, nothing scented, and try to keep projects away from smoke and furry pets.

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

The board Swap potential (http://pinterest.com/saintcady/swap-potential) is probably the most direct board, but feel free to just take inspiration from some of the others (like the Quotes & Signs board, or Geek Joy, or Kid Stuff). Probably steer away from the Projects I've Done board. Items I've already received or that I'm expecting from someone else are noted in the comments. I'm happy to answer any questions! Thank you in advance! <3

You laugh because Im different, I laugh because your all the same.

I'm Aida and I'm from the Philippines. I'm an engineering graduate, still trying to find a job. I love geeky things, musicals, books. I also appreciate humor tending to the nerdy programming side because of my course. My favorite colors are the from the pure shades to darker shades of greens and blues and mixes of those two colors. All my boards are fair game for crafting or inspiration, except for the stuff I've made, received from swaps ones (but they do show a lot about me), keep in mind (just stuff I want to keep track of) and places I want to go to and cute/funny board (just there for the fun). You don't have to craft exact copies of my pins, inspired by them is fine. You can mix and match as you want from my pins. I'm still adding more pins, slowly but surely!

Hi! My name is Tina and I live in Vancouver Washington with my husband and two wonderful daughters (16 and 20. Now, really, when did that happen?). I am in a PhD program that is stressing me out, so both playing on Pinterest and crafting are welcome distractions!

I like fall colors, turquoise, dark rust, green, forest colors... but I also like bright rainbow colors. Okay, I guess that I pretty much like all colors, but am less excited by Easter pastels and neons, although they have their place. I generally do not like camouflage patterns. 

My style leans towards bohemian / gypsy / hippie / natural. I am absolutely fine with you upcycling and using recycled materials in your crafts for me. I would prefer that the materials that are used do not come from animals (no real fur, and only recycled leather, please).

I am a plus-sized woman, so if you are thinking of anything that needs a size (even things like bracelets, short necklaces, etc) please pm me. In fact, if you have any questions about my list or likes, feel free to pm me! Smiley

All of my boards are fair game for inspiration, except for "Wedding Photography Research" (my daughter had been hired to do a wedding photo shoot and we were collaborating on ideas). I don't need exact duplicates, so please feel free to use your wonderful creativity!
