Hello lovely crafty people!
The basic idea for this swap came from Sassie via 2peas...thanks Sassie!!

For this swap, you will make a set of 4 of the item you sign up for and you will get a set of 4 back. It's that easy!

4/7/12 ***UPDATE.....UPDATE.......UPDATE*** You can sign up for multiple spots in any group! Sign up for two spots...send in 2 SETS and get 2 SETS back, sign up for 3 spots and send in 3 SETS and get 3 SETS back and so on.

DUE DATE:
Now I know how busy we all are and since the majority of the categories will be handmade items, I am going to set the DUE DATE for May 5th (not post marked, actually in my hands) so I can have them swapped out and back to everyone just in time for Mother's Day! That's over a month to create. I am a real stickler for deadlines and due dates, so please be on time or your items will be returned to you. Overseas crafters are welcomed but your creating time will be less since your packages will take longer to get here. PM me for address if you don't already have it.

RETURN POSTAGE:
You have the option of sending return postage with your package or sending it via PayPal. The PayPal address is pebblesh (underscore) [email protected] If you send postage with your package please make sure you include the amount that it cost to get it here plus 3 extra stamps. If I don't need the extra stamps, I will send them back to you.

FLAKER CLAUSE:
This is usually where I say "if you don't plan on finishing, don't sign up", but I will sign up for each category so no matter what, if someone flakes, you will still get to swap out with me! And I'm no flaker! LOL

THE SPECS:
1. For the stick pins, you can use either use HEAD PINS, OR you can use CORSAGE PINS. PLEASE don't use any pins smaller than 2". Please use at least 3 beads per pin and make sure the beads are adhered to the pin by either using E6000, crystal laquer or Glossy Accents so they won't slide down and the glue dries clear.

2. For the binder clips, you can use between the 1" to the jumbo size.

3. The Washi Tape can be bought or handmade. Take strips of 4, eight inches long and adhere them to wax paper, clear acetate, non-stick foil...etc.

4. For the clothes pins, I was thinking along the line of the regular sized spring loaded ones (not the minis), but I have seen the jumbo spring loaded and the old fashioned slit ones. The choice is yours.

5. The toothpick flags are easy peasy. Your flags can be however you want. Rectangle, triangle...etc. Have fun with it.

6. For the altered paper clips. I recommend that you use the colored coated ones. They have many to choose from. Regular standard shape, spirals, etc. Either the small ones or the large ones. That's not to say that you can't use the silver or gold ones so the choice is yours.

7. The pearl flowers is totally up to you whether you want to use 5 or 6 base pearls. And since I limited on my video skills right now (lol), I've linked the video tutorial that I watched that inspired me to make it.

8. Let's have the Charm Dangles no longer than 4 inches and no shorter than 2 inches. Be as creative as you want!

Each set of 4 will be swapped TOGETHER. I ask that you don't make each set exactly the same. I think it will be fun to get a good variety to use on future projects. If you want to use the same color for your sets, that is fine as long as they are each a little bit different. I will have tutorials posted for inspiration (so far I only have done)and please let me know if there's another category that you think we should add.

Sign ups will be open until April 7th!
***UPDATE*** Sign ups will be open until April 10th!

Sorry ladies...I had to run out and do some errands right fast.

Sally- No problem. Just let me know. You have supported me since I first started getting my feet wet with hosting, so I will take care of your shipping if you want to sign up for stick pins.

Bonnie- Altered Paper Clips are a go!

Sassie- Signing you up now!

Jessica- I'm going to go back out and find your bug and send'em home to you!

Debby- I will be doing tutorials for every category and will have them all done before sign ups are over. I will let you ladies know when I post a new video and for which category. The next one that I do will be one of the ones you asked about though.

Toothpicks - can be just about any kind of embellishment attached to a toothpick. I've mostly seen them made into pennants, though. Haven't checked out the paper clip tut yet, but the same with that. I've received some in kits/swaps. Mostly people made flowers and glued them onto paper clips. If you have any broken earrings or odd just single ones, hoping you'll find the missing one, you can clip the backing off and glue it onto a paper clip.

If you go to Target or the Dollar stores, look in the office supply section. They usually have the metallic colored paper clips. I've gotten the circle shaped ones, too. Those are cool to add to photos or tags.

Ok, I haven't checked the tutes yet because I've spent most of the day swapping one of my own swaps, and then rechecking, switching around, swapping some more, etc. Good grief, being a hostess is a whole lotta work! But the fun kind, not the mopping kind.

But I really came on here to say: "Debby, is that really a kitty on top of a potato?" So dang adorable! You really come up with some of the best avi's.

I just recorded 2 video's on altering a clothes pin and my SD Card is not being recognized by my computer for some reason!!! I think my port is messed up because I just put my adapter card in there and it won't pick that up either! Bummer!!!
I will try to figure something else out. brb

Hope your techy troubles don't cost too much to fix!!! Should be able to get a USB card reader if need be (or just run a USB from the camera to the computer). If it is a problem with the built in card reader, the last one I had to swap out cost way too much.

Okay ladies...we have 6 categories so far....and....I saw a tut on how to make these cute little bead creations. I don't know what else to call them. They are kind of chunky but they are so cute and I thought I could use them on a shabby chic project or use other colored beads and etc...but tell me what you think...should we add it?

They look so pretty. Sunday, I spent a better part of the day organizing all my beads. My daughter got into them awhile back and thought she would "organize" them. Yah right. I was just about done and had one the tray filled when I dropped it. I was so disgusted.. I just left it there. Luckily that room is carpeted and the beads didn't roll too far.

I wish I had a Hobby Lobby nearby. There's one on my way to my friend's house, but I don't care for it and I can never find any good deals there. But I have a ton of hat pins I got at a rummage sale last summer. Someone made something really tacky looking, probably for some kind of stage prop and I took it all apart for the beads and pins.

Thanks...most of them I got from Oriental Trading Co with the pins today.
I've found that the selection on line is better as far as Hobby Lobby goes. I don't have one near me as well but I everyone I talk to say the same thing about the in-store selection.

Just make 4. The idea of this swap was a flake free swap. You make 4 and you get 4 back. So, 10 people could sign up for one group and you still make 4 and get 4 back. Some other swaps do that, too.

What about a group for charm dangles (I have no idea what to call them, they're like zipper pulls or purse charms). They are great for putting on the binding rings of a mini. They can be as simple or elaborate as you want them.

I'd like to do stick pins, binder clips and paper clips.

Question - just to clarify...do we send just one set of 4, or multiple sets, for each group?



Hi Pam!
For this round, we are only doing one set of 4. I wanted everyone to get a feel for making everything first and then next round you can send in multiple sets to get multiple sets back.

Hi Nicole!
I was about to send a search party out for you to sign up! There's really no pressure here...you can sign up for the categories you want and if you can't get around to it, it's all good. I will have this as a monthly swap maybe you can jump in on the next round. But I will say that I was amazed at how little time it took me to make everything! Everything that I have made so far took me under 10 mins and I have never made any of them before. So come on and sign up!

Hey Erin!
I will do the bead creation sometime soon. I have the toothpick flags on the agenda today so we'll see how that goes. And the charm dangles are gorgeous...if you guys want it added, just let me know.

So, I started the binder clips last night. OMG are they easy and fun!!!

If you add the mini album charms, I'll sign up for that one too. I haven't played with my bead stash in a while, it needs some attention!

Okay ladies, HERE'S A UPDATE, sorry for the all caps and red. I'm nowhere near mad or screaming, lol but I wanted to get your attention.
Two new categories has been added to the front page as well as the specs for those categories.
Erin, I signed you up for both, let me know if that's what you wanted and Melissa I signed you up for one.
Check to make sure I have you all where you want to be! Time to make another video!

I know I know...I was referring to Kevin too but after you said that, I have not other option. Ohhh wait! Does any of your brothers cook, clean, let you scrap and wake you up to the tunes of the temptations? If that's the case, I'd like to order 2XL, throw some fries there as well and please pack to go...chop chop!!
