This is one of my favorite things you have made! (The flying rocking horse was definitely a contender as was the dancing mop from The Sorcerer's Apprentice!)...so tiny and detailed!  Your swap partner sure has high standards! Grin

Thank you!  If I had it to do over again, I'd make the bell heads a little shorter and thicker, emphasize their "lips" a bit more (basically make them more bell-like in shape), and shorten the roots a bit.  My swap partner has simultaneously incredibly high and incredibly low standards, if that makes any sense (i.e., he wants the moon and stars, but settles for less than he should).

I find that I craft less (apart from my knitting & crochet) when not swapping.
So I'll join in with this again and get making some new things ...
hmm .. what swap to 'join'?

I've been having trouble crafting and I truly believe it's because at the time I didn't have any swaps to craft for. It's so much easier to get my creative juices flowing when I have a someone in mind to craft for. It makes it easier to craft other things tol

I agree with you audio, if I don't have a purpose for crafting, I'm not inspired.

Today's the deadline, and I finished my final piece for Monster Swap Round 6 over the weekend, fulfilling my 4-point quota!

Hi!
 I'm sorry to ask this here if there's another spot, but would anyone actually want to swap their handmade things? Once completing a 'swap'? I guess it would be a one/one trade... I looked at the actual swaps and they all require participation in 2 swaps... so I have not idea how to get into the two I need to get into the first one...LOL! Which is fine:)

Notjustasparrow - hey I just looked at the swaps available and I believe you misread. The 2 completed swap requirement is if you are "organizing" a swap.  You should be able to join any of those swaps once you've been a member for a month and have at least 15 posts. I see you've posted the required amount but haven't been around for a month yet. I suggest waiting the month and joining one of the swaps.  The Ongoing Atc Swap is great swap to start with and they have one every month.
