Too many good swaps to pass up?  How about swapping with yourself?

I am restarting this craftalong because there are just too many swaps that many of us can't join but we want to craft!!!

This is a craftalong for swap junkies.

Do you love swapping?  Do you love getting inspired by swap themes?  Do you maybe get more done with a deadline?

BUT.....

Are you trying to save money? (shipping is pricey!), or maybe you love a theme, but you want to make certain items?  

Whatever your reasons, feel free to join up!
In this craftalong we will be "fake-joining" swaps that are current(preferred)...BUT, if there is a swap from the past that you missed, feel free to "bend" the rules! Grin
 Then we will craft along the parameters of the swap, including send out dates, what needs to be sent, and if extras are allowed or encouraged;  at the end of the swap period we will give ourselves the things we have made!

For example...(fake example)
I want to join the Carnivorous Plant swap, but I don't have a lot of money for shipping this month, and I really want a mug rug embroidered with a plant , so I'm going to fake swap.

I will post in this thread like this:

My name is alwaysinmyroom
I am joining the Carnivorous Plant Swap.
I will make 1 mug rug for this swap
It is due by January 31, 2015.

And now I'm signed up!

I am organizing this fake swap, so I'll keep track of all the participants, and send out reminders when people's swaps are almost due.  When you have finished your item(s), please post here gallery style, so we can all congratulate you!!

Just to be clear, you can sign up here to fake-participate in ANY swap...and I'll let you fake-join up to 5 fake-swaps.

Please, only sign up if you are serious about completing the swaps.  I understand that life happens, but I'll take time every day (or 2 or 3) to update everything, so please don't sign up if you're not going to try, you know?

I may still do a lot of real swaps this year, but I need to slow the pace (and the postage) so this craftalong is the perfect outlet.

Ok, I am bookmarking this thread because I have already made a deal with myself to not do as many real swaps this year. Just getting to the post office has been hard lately!

What a clever idea!   : )   I am going to think on this to be sure I will be able to complete like you said.   But, I really like this.  : )

Ok so I was thinking about the fact that I havent taken part in a swap in ages and I had the mad idea that I would combine the "2015 Annual DeStash-Along" with taking part in one swap a month for the year  Grin Only thing is I was worried about the cost & timescale side of things and didnt want to disapoint anyone so this craftalong is perfect!

So I will try this year to 'Fake Swap Craftalong' once each month for the whole of this year..... does that sound really crazy???

So to start off:

*Swap Sign Up*
My name is bushbaby.
I am joining the Fill a "Coffee" Mug Swap (SU by 1/09/15, SO by 1/31/15)
I will make 1 mug rug & 1 Mug/Cup Cosy for this swap
It is due by January 31, 2015.

Can you choose swaps that are already finished?  Or does it have to be current swaps only?

This is your thread, so you can pick a past swap and make your own deadline...I just ask that you make the deadline realistic for yourself and try to stick to it...

bushbaby...I love that swap, too...I think I am going to "join" that one!
