I was thinking and I looked but I didn't see anything that matched...

Has anyone done a swap where the end craft is random. (i'm not even sure if that makes sense.. Huh)  I guess it would be like the ATC swaps where I would set up my list of themes but the craft that is produced in that theme is up to the artist/any medium (paper, stitched, clay, etc...) Would anyone be interested in trying it?

That sounds like an interesting idea, and like a twist on the OTT (one tiny thing) or Surprise swaps we've had in the past.

What if the participants provided both some themes and some broad item categories?

For example a swapper could have:

My three item categories are:
Winter wearables (hat, scarf, gloves, etc.)
Plush
Household decorations

My three themes are:
Woodland creatures
Space
Warm colors

So for this person a partner could make a pair of fox mittens, or a quote block that has a Carl Sagan or Neil Armstrong quote on it. I feel like that'd give partners enough to go on while still making the end result more of a surprise. And of course when you add in the standard questions of dislikes/allergies (like maybe this person hates wool) that'd give you more info you you can make something they'd really enjoy.

I'd like to join! I've been away from crafting for months and miss swapping so much.  I'd love to see what creativity would come from this swap.

I'm not sure if rosie1981 got the notification that she was tagged, so I just sent her a message to see if she wants to host. I'm still willing to co-org with her. If she is not willing to host, I am willing to get this swap moving!

I would be interested in this if sign ups happened after the Asheville get-together, so any time after May. Sounds like a fun one Smiley.

I'm thinking after May as well.  I'm a secretary at the middle school and we are in the last nine weeks so chaos is near.   Wink  This might be a fun swap to calm my nerves.  lol.
