I remember thinking a few years ago how people could swap so much - then I started swapping and lo and behold, I am caught up in the madness too!

I am already making up  some items - they are small and can be packaged in small little baggies to make it friendly for indoor/outdoor abandoning, and probably could be made unisex.

I am so excited for this swap!  I'm actually so inspired, I'm abandoning some art of my own this weekend when hunting for craft items on The Longest Yard Sale.

I sent my questionare!
I usually put one of my email addresses on whatever I "drop". Sometimes I get emails with thank you's or messages asking me why I did it. The first time I "dropped" some handpainted bookmarks I was too shy to do this, but the times after that I added the email. I guess curiosity drove me to it!

I think we will end up with fabulous discussions over adding notes or emails to the crafts. Definitely not required by the crafter not definitely a possibility.

Some new swappers added. Domesticmamma's first swap!

So I am really enjoying reading the questionnaires sent in. Just to share, we have some possible crafts involving assemblage, fiber arts, ceramics, wood, mini books, and beads.

I leave folded cranes with fortunes written inside them around here (the outside says "fortune crane, open for fortune" so they know what they are), but I don't think that would be good enough for this swap.  I could do little amigurumi, though, so I'll have to think about it...  Hmmm...

I love creative forms of street art.  I so admire the painting and wheatpaste graffiti art people do, and yarnbombing is just genius.  Lately I've seen more versions of funny 'take one' poster takeoffs, found this on pinterest with some great examples http://pinterest.com/andithinks/take-one/ .  I hadn't heard of the 'abandoned art' idea but it's fabulous, and I'm so excited to think of something good to throw out into the world and see what everyone else does.

OK, I'm a member of artabandonment at facebook. Can we integrate the two. I just spent over 2 hours today at the page. I would like to make a tab about the art abondonment group at facebook and the reason for the swap here at craftster.  http://www.facebook.com/groups/ArtAbandonment/

I have been going over ideas of what to abandon and this group is so awesome and so many craftsters already belong. The idea that we send it to someone else to 'drop' is fabulous. I want to make tag cards to include both reasons for this swap. Just sayin.

 Near my job is this sad Charlie Brown looking evergreen tree in a photographer's yard. Two christmas ago, I put a lone red ornament near the top. I waited two weeks before I mentioned it to him. He thought some kid put it there. It still sits in the tree and he loves it.

 I live in a small beach town just twenty miles from a major city. I'm very tempted to join this swap but I'll do some research first.

I just received some adorable bird clips/mini clothes pins in another swap and it gave me the idea to make my own with the large clothespins for our clothes (yeah, DH already hates that the clothespin apron is now distinctly less than manly, birdy clips is going to make it so that he may never hang clothes on the line again).

Maybe I could make some for clipping a note onto the abandoned items...

Maybe I am getting too excited by this swap...

Hmmmm - maybe I am a bit of a crafting nerd...
