The only restriction on your project is that it CAN NOT BE AN ATC

I hope I don't have to angel this. If you are inclined to flake, DON'T BLINK!

I love this with both my hearts. Didn't even have to read the description to know I wanted to sign up :)

Would a painting or drawing be acceptable as a craft?

sgjolinar 11/28/2011 #

Oh yes! Paintings are good. Especially if they can fit into a frame. I really do like original artwork. But I think it should be hung up and shown off rather than be so small that you can't put it anywhere but a drawer.

sgjolinar 11/29/2011 #

Oh, I just thought of this. It doesn't have to fit in a tremendous frame (nor do you have to include it with the craft). Something like a 5x8 is fine. Small works of art like that fit in great places!

THIS IS WAY TO FUCKING COOL! I was thinking of creating a doctor who group since there was none, I am so super excited!!!

MizzKodak 11/29/2011 #

I have a few questions 1-what would you say is the average size of the item made? I would hate to make something really time consuming and sorta pricey just to receive something tiny. 2-How much money is expected to be spent on the item made?

Halogen 11/29/2011 #

[email protected] if you do create a group let me know, I'd love to join!

sgjolinar 11/30/2011 #

@mizzkodak There is no spending limit really (if you are a bargain hunter, than you won't technically spend the required amount). And size is dependant. I mean tardis pillow vs. tardis earrings. the pillow is larger, but the earrings are small but awesome. the small thing just comes from my beef with ATCs and inchies and other small nick knacks that are hard to find use for. And they seem to get too much attention in swaps.
Also small but totally awesome - 3D magnets, Greeting card sets (more than 1) with matching address labels, cosplaying accessories, T-Shirts, etc. All that's required is that you put some thought and creative energy and caring into your project.

I dont really care for ATCs or Inchies either but I have joined ATC swaps if they are harry potter themed of something super cool.

I am so excited for this!

Anaryawe 12/11/2011 #

Oh I'm already dying to see everybody's creations! Maybe we need to set up a flickr group for the aforementioned swap-bot group (AAAHH let's everybody join and do an infinite series of swaps like "Crocheted pink Dalek + a banana (international version)" and whatnot)

renees 12/11/2011 #

@MizzKodak - Be sure to approve all the join requests so we can get the group up and running!

MizzKodak 12/12/2011 #

I <3 k9 -- just saying

KateKintail 12/15/2011 #

I'm SUCH a geek. I just spent an hour and a half at the craft store after work picking up supplies for this and changing my mind a dozen times. But now I've decided. I can't wait to start making stuff! Squee!

KateKintail 12/15/2011 #

Oh, and I might as well throw this out there too, but I'm a huge pre-COE Torchwood fan (Jack/Ianto all the way) in addition to loving Doctor Who so very, very much (I consider Ten to be my first doctor).

HMWelch 01/19/2012 #

Is there a flickr group set up? I've got photos of the craft I made, and I would just love to see everyone else's geek-craft. Thanks for the swap, BTW!

sgjolinar 01/20/2012 #

I don't have a flickr group, but if you leave the link, I'd be delighted to see it!!
