Swap name: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Round 4
Craftster members who are organizing this swap: rackycoo & alteredmommy

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? 16+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: FOCs - YES, Users with Negs - Not necessarily.
- Is a Friend of Craftster OR has negative feedback: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: NO this swap is specifically set up to help those members with negative feedback. Smiley
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES

Details of swap:

If you would like to participate, please read ALL of the information in this post thoroughly.

Though there are quite a few Craftster members who have negative feedback, angel opportunities can be hard to come by.  We've run three previous versions of this swap in order to provide opportunities for those members who needed to clear their negative feedback.  However, since there are so many members who still need opportunities to set their accounts in good standing, we have decided to run this swap again.  

As with the previous versions of this swap, Friends of Craftster in good swap standing and users with negative feedback (who have NOT been banned from swapping) may participate. Here's how it works:

Friends of Craftster:

As long as you are a FOC (with no negatives of your own) when you post your list, you are eligible.  Since you will not be sending in this swap, you may join even if you are at your 5 swap limit. You may only post once and once you have been chosen, your list will be moved to a locked thread for reference. Unlike most swaps, for this swap you will need to post your wishlist FIRST and THEN PM your sign-up questionnaire to BOTH rackycoo AND alteredmommy. (Yes. BOTH. on the same pm so we can each see the other has it) Due to our method of tracking, this will be easiest for us. If you are found to be ineligible, your post will be removed without notice.

Remember, the more realistic your list, and the more items you include, the better your chances of getting chosen! If you are chosen, your list will be moved to a locked thread and your swapper will send you a few items from your list. The swapper will choose one large or two mediums, and then two of your small items. When you receive, you will pm rackycoo and alteredmommy so we can fix your sender's feedback, and then you will post in the gallery and include a nice thank you message to your sender. Feedback will not be entered for this swap, as FOCs will not actually be swapping and senders will be getting a negative removed from their profile.

Because this is not a regular swap, there is a chance that either you will not get chosen, or you might get flaked on after you are picked. Please note that there will be no angels for this swap. If you don't receive, though, there is no loss as you will not be sending out items to your swapper.


Users with Negative Feedback:

You do not need to send a PM to sign-up. Just PM your completed questionnaire to rackycoo and alteredmommy once you've chosen a list. Give us the name of the FOC you chose, and we'll send you the address.

Please send to one FOC per negative you've received. You do not need to clear all of your negatives during this swap, but you are allowed to clear multiple negatives by choosing up to two lists at a time. Please choose one large or two mediums, and then two of small items from each list. If you have more than two negatives and you are able to send out two nice packages before the end of signups, you may choose two more lists at that time.

Once you have selected a Friend of Craftster to send to, PM your questionnaire to rackycoo AND alteredmommy (Yes. BOTH of us) the relevant questionnaire below.  You MUST PM rackycoo and alteredmommy each time you choose a list and each time you send. When you send your package you must purchase Delivery Confirmation if you are sending within the US. If you are sending within or between any other countries you will need to provide a scan or picture of your receipt when you send. This is not required in regular Craftster swaps, but will be required in this swap.

Who's sending to whom:

Once your package has been received, one negative will be changed to positive.  The previous organizer comments will remain, but we will add that you successfully completed the FOC Second Chance Wishlist swap to redeem your feedback.

If you claim someone in this swap, you will need to complete your obligations. If you do not send a package to someone that you claim you will be permanently banned from swapping. This is in line with current swap rules.


All participants:

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/236931630367838412/

--Wall art in any medium, I have many examples on my Pinterest
http://www.pinterest.com/soapsbymaremare/

--Knit or crochet boot cuffs in neutral colors. Probably XL size

Smalls:

About Me
37 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and three cats.

  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • I love nature and trees
  • My favorite movie is Back to the Future
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


 Grin = big wish

Sewing (Examples of Fabric I like)
> Grin Steampunk leather fingerless gloves These are so cool! (Could be pleather too)
> Grin Superhero hand towels Specifically GREEN LANTERN or CAPTAIN AMERICA for my guy. (He'd LOVE them!)
> Harry Potter Owl Plush OMG so cute!!
> Steampunk Lace Cuff Bracelet. Neat idea!
> Sewing Surprise There are tons of sewn things on my pinterest as well!


Knitting & Crochet
Grin > Boot Cuffs! Like 2-in-1 boot cuffs or this kind of style in colors like a marbled brown, taupe, ivory or charcoal grey.
Grin > Crochet Sheldon Cooper Ami as a gift to my guy.
> Enterlac cowl I love those colors too!
> Dragon Scale Crochet Shawl these colors are pretty or other combo too.
> Grin Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (And yes, simple thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)
> Hanging Bat Plush Little hanging knit bats are so adorable!!
> Grin Crochet Parasol or Granny square parasol So pretty! Can be rainbow, or tones of blues, or blues/browns, or purples or earthy (greens/browns) colors. I just love this idea in general!
> GORGOUS Knit Shrug. I love cables. I'm sure this is stupidly, massively huge, but I love it so much I'm putting it on the list anyway. LOL
> Knit or Crochet Surprise Item - You can find more items HERE on my knit/crochet pin board.

Embellished Clothing
INFO FOR ALL TEES: Fitted styles only please! (i.e. not the boxy unisex style) If Misses, size small. If Jr's size medium. I like jewel tones for shirts (emerald green, amethyst purple, turquoise, aqua) plus browns and greys best. Short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve fine. Scoop or V-neck best (but not so low I have to wear another shirt under it please!) I like Target's Mossimo shirts a lot but other brands are good too. ANY OF MY LIKES/THEMES ARE GREAT SOURCES OF INSPIRATION!

>  Grin Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Bleach Pen/Embroidered Fitted T-Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
>  Grin Batik/Dyed/Ombre/ "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
>  Grin Galaxy Shirt! I love this. I think either black tee, dark navy blue or dark purple tee is best for the base shirt color. I can't be around bleach (allergic to the vapors) so I can't make this for myself but I'd love someone to make one for me!!
> Bleach Pen Tees Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
> Embroidered Shirt I really like this idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

Glass, Ceramics, Pottery, Etc.
> Beautiful Footed Mug I love the style, design and colors.
> Cat stained glass So cute! I have an orange kitty too.
> Blown glass tree bead So pretty! And I make wire trees and moons so very fitting.
> Stunning Serving Bowl Don't think it gets any more beautiful than this.
> Birch Tree Mug I love white birch trees.
> Ceramic Oversized Soup Mug I've got several I love pinned here.
> Ceramic/pottery/glass wish/surprise item Examples of glass items HERE and ceramic items HERE

Hoopla, Embroidery, Needlework
> Grin "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" hoop like THIS or THIS. Too damned funny!!
> Phoenix Feather Hoopla. Love this in a red/orange/yellow color scheme!
> "M" Hoopla I love the font, the detail, everything about this example.
> HOOPLA SURPRISE I've been pinning some so take a peek and see if you get inspired!


Other

> Grin Anything with a phoenix. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items or phoenix pinned items as inspiration.
> Grin Daffodils - Spring always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here to help usher in Spring.
> Castle Building Block Rubber Stamps These are so cute and clever!
> SURPRISE ME! Look at my my pinterest or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like!


Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

    Smeddley's List

    I'm a 40-year-old engineer living in Kansas with my husband and my dog.  Geeky and nerdy doesn't even begin to describe me.  I knit and crochet at baseball games (go Royals!) and our D&D games.  Love sci-fi and really cheesy horror movies.  Read a lot of mysteries.  Bellydance at nursing homes (they just like the sparkle, we don't have to be great, so it's low stress).

    Allergies: Hemp.  Please no hemp fibers or oils! 
    Dislikes: Real animal bits.  I'm okay with leather and feathers and sometimes fur, but not fond of things like bones.  It's an awkward line.

    First, pretty much anything off any of my "Swap Inspiration" boards, or craft-specific boards (obviously, the "received" and "made" boards are... well, things I have!).  Or anything similar that you can think of.  Or anything that might go with a swap item I've received in the past!  Some of the greatest things I've gotten aren't things I specifically asked for, so feel free to use your imagination!

    Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/ (the only thing I'd probably not want is amigurumi, I do a LOT of that and am swimming in it - I say that, but then the Mega Piranha pouch I got in a swap is one of my favorite things ever, so... it's more a vague suggestion, really).

    More specifically (the list kinda tries to start from small up to large, but it gets all jumbled)...

    ATCs, I'm collecting them!  I have a few "Art I Like" pins, but to be honest I like a broad range of art, from dark and macabre to very cutesy.  Pretty much anything goes there.

    Needlebooks, you can never have too many!  I like lots of styles and am getting a bit of a collection.

    Pincushions, I don't quite have one for every desk yet, and that's rather a needed thing, since the other place I store pins and needles is random places on my clothing... ouch!  I have a board full of style ideas

    Stitch Markers, again, with so many WIPs, you can never have too many!  I have a board with a few ideas, but feel free to let your imagination go wild there

    Bookmarks, I really like the ribbon style, like these.

    Hair sticks or knitting needles, embellished with beads, etc like these.

    Pencil boxes, pouches, cases.  Have art supplies, will travel!  I do really like this fish one, for some reason...

    Coasters, I'm fighting a losing battle with water stains and my furniture, but I'm still trying.  I would adore a set like this.

    Tiny zippered coin purse! Soooo want one of these!

    Bracelets, wrap style, 7" for single wrap.  Some style ideas on my beading board.

    Hoops!  Glorious Hoops!  Obviously, anything inspired by any of my boards, not just my cross stitch and embroidery board, but also there are a few I've made and given away I wouldn't mind having one of!  These in particular: The Birds, Mr Fox, Grammar, As You Wish, Profanities - NSFW

    Bags of all sorts, shapes, and sizes.  I particularly love this shopping bag and will NEVER have too many.

    Sock Monkey, I'd love a Dr Who, Captain Mal, or Shaun sock monkey, but there are lots of others I'd love as well!

    Poppet - while I do have two AMAZING bellydance poppets, I love poppets and would like more!  Any character/type from any of my boards.

    Journals, again, something I can't get enough of!  This is a particularly amazing example.

    Original artwork.  I love original artwork!

    Altered ponies, especially like this bellydance pony!.

    Pot holders, I really like these, style-wise, but anything relating to any of my likes would be great!

    Miniatures!  Anything tiny, especially things for my new Cabinet of Curiosities.  Themes for the cabinet are: Poisonous plants, Potions, Mushrooms, Old books, Voodoo, Moths, Steampunk, Odd medical devices,  Anything else you think of that seems to go with the aesthetic of the others, since I'm sure I'm forgetting things!  Also, small, peg-people sized things in general, like furniture and such as I'm kind of working on a peg people comic book thing.

    Thanks for looking over my list!  Cheesy

    Hi there!  Summer here.  Between myself, my son, and dear Hubs, there are a ton of possibilities.  We all get easily excited and tend be easy to please. Goldfish, peacocks, cute monsters, or geeky things are always a safe bet with me. Kiddo loves Minecraft, Kingdom Hearts, legos, penguins, cats, superheros, science....a lot, just not skulls. Hubs is a Trekker, Whovian, and Browncoat (We all are, but he REALLY is) and I am in tons of Geekdoms!  Seriously, I have 14 Geekin' boards.  The only hangup is that I'm allergic to latex, so no balloons or rubber please!  If you are unsure, just ask!

    What would I like?  Well, since you ask:
    My   Pinteresthas a TON with boards for Yarn Related, Sewn Crafts, and Assorted Crafts.  Hooplas and Badges(some of which could easily be turned into plushies) are also there alongside Stuff I collect, but don't have.   My Son and Hubs

    Large Wants:
    *Plushies- Pick a character from one of the shows, or just get inspired by my pinterest.  Ones that have a hidden purpose, like as a mp3 holder are amazing and will send me over the moon. A goldfish pouch would be wonderful.
    *Bags/Messenger Bags or Backpacks- As long as it can be used it can be as crazy as you want, there are a ton on my pinterest.
    *My son as a anime/manga character would be extra special.  He loves Kindom Hearts and wishes he was in it. Any type or size of craft is fine.
    *Notebooks for writing/sketching ideas in or sort of journaling
    *Hats or hoods for keeping the head warm.  My whole family could use some, especially with earflaps.
    *Socks or House socks mismatched, funky, characters, whatever you feel like.
    *Hooplas- Please, my wall needs more!
    *Pillowcases
    *Wall hanging craft tool keeper.

    Medium/Smalls
    *Medium or small zippered pouches- Any kind really. Here is one as an example, go as crazy as you want.  Goose even has a duct-tape one on his wish list.
    *Earrings- My ears are pierced and I like the ear ivy kind that climb up, or dangly ones, or studs....pretty much anything fun or shiny.
    *Plushies- As simple and small as you like.  I keep some in my purse for entertainment while we wait.
    *Buttons/Badges- pick a Quote, Geek thing, or something else altogether. I cover my purse with pinback buttons.
    *Hair accessories, like soft headbands, elastics or hairsticks.  My hair is waist length and the ends are usually some jewel color like teal or purple or fuschia.
    *ATC cards- Goose is starting to collect them and trying to make his own.
    *Dust plugs for my cellphone
    *Notebook covers for spiral notebooks.

    Or
    *Something related to Firefly/Serenity, MegaTokyo, Harry Potter, Star Trek (any of them), Shakespeare, Microbiology, Chuck, Flash, or Doctor Who.
    *Anything else you find yourself drawn to making that you think my family would like.
    We also LOVE tasting interesting candies and goodies, although Hubs is the only one that tried the BarBQue flavored crickets.

    I'm always looking for neat buttons, yarn, crochet hooks, fabrics, and notions.
