Hey fellow crafty folks, I'm turning another year older this September 12th and I would love it if other September babies would like to have a craft swap. I've never organized a swap but I'll help and open to planning it! It can be based on whatever themes you like and maybe a small to medium sized crafted item.  Kiss
Any ideas? Any birthday friends?
Sent by Sept. 30th??

Nerdy pumpkin image not related to swap. Just begging for some swappers LOL

This could be something I could get into =D my birthday's sept. 10th, and for the first time n (soon to be 23 yrs) my mama wont be here for my birthday (ofc i'd rather her be with my new baby brother who will be 2 on sept 8th) so I would love somethin for sure

I think mediums would probably be good for me, I'm detail oriented and slightly bigger things are more fun for me to work on =D I hope this gets off the ground for sure, havent seen many birthday swaps lately and been looking forward to this one =P

A week sounds good.  It shouldn't take longer than that for September babies to find the swap.   Smiley

I'm a September baby and interested in a birthday swap but I noticed you're not running it the same as previous birthday swaps which has put me off a bit to be honest, I'm an uptight Virgo - what if my crafts don't translate well to my partners themes? How are you planning to assign partners?

I gotta agree with Kookaloo on some points, I like how the other birthday swaps allowed people to pick who they wanted rather than be assigned a partner, as well it seems the others allow signups throughout the entirety of the month, which in my opinion gives us a little more freedom to see if we can squeeze it in (I know for some people, birthday months are hecktic!) And tbh, the "theme" thing confuses me >.> i just dont quite ....understand? it?

Looks like the September B'day swap has disappeared from the swaps board. What's happening coconutbells?

Things weren't working out as it was my first attempt at organizing a craft swap. I'd be happy to do something on a more personal level Wink Sorry my skills in trying to figure this out were limited
