My daughter wants to join craftster as well and swap away, but I told her she needs to practice DOING crafts - because while it's super awesome to get great stuff, its not so awesome to not respond in kind. She's twelve, so she's started to get the patience for it .... but she has a ways to go yet. It would be cool to have a kids-craftster swap Smiley

There are kids swaps! My kidlet was in one this past summer and had a great time making (and getting) some pretty cool stuff.

There are kid swaps several times a year. My daughter has already participated in two and she participated in two private swaps as well. Cassidy LOVES swaps and begs me to let her swap constantly.

If there's not a kid swap soon I'd suggest contacting some Craftster members that you know have kids around your daughters age, or perhaps with her same interests, and ask if they'd like to do a private kids' swap. The ongoing holiday wishlist swap (went 3 rounds: October, November, December) would be a good place to start looking because people were posting bios of themselves and wishlists for their kids so you could get an idea if a kiddo might have similar interests and be in the right age range.

Another idea is to have her swap with cousins or perhaps with a school friend.

I like that title! I could only come up with 'snot-rag' (thats what I am at the moment! both boys use my clothes to wipe their noses Sad yuk!) I really could do with a better one, but need some help

Might I suggest the Sultana of Snot, at the very least? Or perhaps The Supreme Keeper of Snot Rags? Though I do think perhaps dispensing with the word snot might improve your suitably impressive and imperious title Grin

Or The High and Mighty Sultana of Proboscis Cleansing?

I suppose I should also point out that Saint Cady: Patron Saint of Smartypants is a wholly secular title as I'm an atheist.

thanks for the suggestions! i think i'll suggest she swap with a school friend first, then go from there. Only the most Terribly Important people would be so smart ....

wow - there are some terribly clever people here, with fabulously impressive vocabularies! I humbly bow to your superior title making skills!

However, my thinking cap has been working overtime (hence the pain in my wonderously important head!) and I am henceforth to be known as:

Countess Craftiness, User of the Thread, Keeper of the Paper and Royal Protector of the Button Box!

Ruler of the Roost, Protector of the Progeny, Conqueror of Comestibles, Chieftain of Chores, Consort Extraordinaire, and Crafty to Boot!

"We ARE amused...."

The Empress of Breathtaking Bunnyness and Magnificent Moxie hereby decrees her wish to participate in said Terribly Important swap.  All in my domain must bow to my glory, and what better way to remind the rabble of my supreme exaltedness?  Sent with a gracious acclamation of appreciation to the Duchess of Fancy Pants for her benevolence!

hhmmmmm I am thinking about joining.  I usually don't sign up for very many swaps at a time, but 2 will be finished soon.  What kind of title for a sewing mom of 3 boys?   Must ponder.  This title part is the hardest

« Reply #38 on: January 09, 2012 11:14:59 AM »

I am curious about something:  I read the FAQ and it says that sizes can be determined mulitple ways-  are we using size, price, or time?

I am not actually ~in~, but I often see the size, but never a specific regarding which way it is being decided. 

Forgive me, I'm a NOOB...plus, I couldn't think of apropriately "important" terminology for the question Smiley

the size usually refers to price or time, but it's a hard one.

If you were, for instance going to cross stitch a picture (even a small one) it could easily take up the 'large' number of hours (can't quite remember off the top of my head - is it more than 3 hours?), but couldn't really be called a 'large' item and I doubt that people spend the $20 or more every time they do a 'large' swap, but it does seem to work somehow!

I'm sure I'll be put right if I've got this wrong.
