Swap name: Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: pink_dinosaur (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: CLOSED
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

  • If your birthday is in April, then you can post your wishlist for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out.
  • Once I PM you and let you know you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better.   The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what your birthday is. 
    Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please
  • Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in April for you to craft for someone.  If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for, and what item, and I will send you their address.
  • If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from you…you guessed it, negative feedback!
  • Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!
  • It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publically announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).
  • You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.

Original idea thread and discussion located here
If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can post on the link above, or send me a PM with "Birthday Swap March" in the subject line.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box

Happy Birthday everyone!

My name is Katelyn and I'm in Massachusetts, USA. My birthday is April 11th. I'll be 20. (wow, I can't believe i'm already 20... I still think I'm 17.)

1. ART! Any type, I would LOVE it. I like trees, nature, fairytale-ish, fantasy, modern, vintage, retro, japan-ish, chinese, "dark".. etc.

2. Sewing stuff. Zippers, LACE, Ribbon, Buttons, Thread, Interfacing, Fabric. Solid colors, animal prints, japan-ish, polka dots, anything.. Thanks!!

3. Surprise me! You could make anything based or themed on my likes down there or pm me.

4. Purse or coin purse, matching ones would be extra cute! I only own one purse!! I'd love to get a new one, it's hard for me to pick out purses. I like purses with just short handles on them like a bowling purse. I don't really use the long handles that you put over your shoulder.

5. Pillow or Pillow cover.

6. A cute animal Japanese styled plushie/stuffed animal.

7. Anything for my pet dog/cat/rats/turtle/fish. Collar, leash, treats, toys, rat hammack..

8. Jewelry. Necklace, bracelet, earrings.. I like silver. I like dangly earrings and stud ones.

9. My boyfriend of 3 years just dumped me out of the blue which i'm pretty down about. Something to get over him and everything and make me feel better about me would be soo awesome.

10. I would go insane for a decorated lunchbox purse. Thanks, I'm so excited!

11. Wallet.

12. Zippered lined pouch/Coin purse.

About me: I don't have too much girly stuff and I'm starting to love it so I'm trying to incorporate that into my style lately. I love fantasy things like Lord of the Rings, dragons, castles, cats, hearts, ruffles, polka dots, skulls, leopard, fish, plaid, checkers, bows, Napoleon Dynomite, furry-ness, lacey-ness, cute anime or cartoon style animals, Japanese or Asian style, video games like rpgs.
I really love color combos of rubys, purples, pinks, oranges.. and color combos of red, black, and leopard. I also love the rockabilly/psychobilly/punk/lolita look.

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to craft for me! I know I'll definitely be crafting for someone else i'm just trying to finish up a swap i'm doing first!

Hi, I'm (a girl) Toni. I shall be turning the legal drinking age of 21 on April 30th. Sadly enough, I will not be drinking, as finals week starts the next day. I also live in Utah, which slightly sucks.  Sad

I'm studying to be a mortician. I'm morbid and I have a very dark sense of humour.

My favorite colours and black, blue, and silver.

I am completely obsessed with stars, the Nightmare Before Christmas, the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Johnny Cash, tattoos and piercings. I love old-school tattoo flash. Anatomical hearts rock my socks.
I'm totally down for just about anything. Smiley

Thanks to whoever decides to craft for me!

Hey Everyone!

I'm excited to finally be able to get into swapping....I already sent out a March Birthday Swap present, and I signed up for the Harry Potter swap Smiley I'm a huge Harry Potter/Gryffindor fan. I just got a digi cam, so I can start posting my crafts!

I'll be turning 22 on April 26th, and I live in L.A. Well actually, I live in Alhambra....but all the cities right next to L.A. are just called "L.A." Tongue I love anything and everything to do with the beach....shells, whales, flamingos, dolphins, coconuts, mermaids, hibiscus, octopus' (I'm loving all the cute octopus crafts lately), starfish etc. I love the blue/tan/brown combos, but I love most colors...especially aqua! Just not a fan of black.

-A Pendant
-Slouchy Tinafish Hobo
-Bath Stuff (Soaps, perfume, lip balm, body wash). Anything that smells nice.
-A Wallet
-Anything Harry Potter related
! I'm not really a shipper or anything, I love Harry, Gryffindor and the whole "Heroism" bit.
-A crochet/knit/sewn parrot! I want to attach him to a hoop and hang him on my wall Smiley
-A stenciled/screened size small (and slim fitting) shirt that says "I solomnly swear that I am up to no good." Or with an animal on it.
-Cloth Pads
-Handspun/Dyed Yarn

I keep admiring all the handspun and dyed yarn everywhere, and it's so gorgeous.
-A nice roomy totebag
(with a pocket to hold my hooks) to carry my crochet supplies when I'm working on a project on the go.
-A cute pocket mirror that is decorated on one side
-Hawaiianish flowers on hairclips/barettes
-Art for walls. I just moved in with my fiance, and the walls are bare and boring!
-Craft supplies
I just moved (see above lol) and I had to leave 90% of my crafting stuff behind  So any spare yarn/beads/felt/needles/thread/sculpy/glue etc that you don't want....I'd love to take it off your hands so I can get crafting again.
-Crochet Hook Roll - Thank you so much! I've been needing one of these for forever!
-A Pointy Kitty![/b]
Preferably in gray with green eyes...and gray fur would be a plus! I had to leave my gray long haired kitty with my parents when I moved  But I'd love *any* pointy kitty!
- Awesome thank you so much! I can't wait to have a little pointy kitty  Grin
-A decorated/decoupage etc box to store my teas or jewellry.
-A custom beachy My Little Pony
-A Boo Hat!

-Monster Slippers
-Maize's Homemade Coco Nut Balls
They look so good!
-A Suprise!

Here are my other loves:
-Knomes. I love love love knomes.
-Cupcakes and general sweets...I love the way they look
-Coffee (I work at Starbucks)

Thank you to anyone who wants to make me a gift Smiley
