Description:

This is the largest crafty swap we had so far in our group. You will have 3 weeks to craft your items so please take your time and make it the best you can! After all, this is the swap where you need to show the best of yours crafting abilities! This does not have to be profile based though that would be nice. Even better, if you are able to craft several of the items on the list, let your partner choose from among them. Again, NOT a requirement. Be sure your items reflect the shabby chic or vintage style of Somerset.

Rate a 5 if you receive the required number of items in a shabby or vintage style. Hearts would be appropriate for really well-made beautiful items especially if profile based.

For this swap you'll have 1 partner and you will pick 2 TWO items to handmake / craft for them from the list:

4 bookmarks (any medium).

4 ATC's or 4 skinnies or 8 inchies or 6 twinchies (any medium / technique).

3 notecards (envies optional and notecards blank or generic sentiment only, no holiday, no altered allowed, made from scratch)

4 handmade postcards (blank for your partner to use; no altered allowed, made from scratch).

8 handmade lightly decorated envies (sturdy for post, min size to fit a card 4.25x5.5", no altered envies allowed, made from scratch)

1 doll or toy (any medium e.g. paperdoll with stand and clothes, stuffie, spoolie, mini ami, dotee, button fairy, altered doll etc.) min 3" high.

2 filled altered 32ct matchboxes or 1 big matchbox diorama / shrine

1 chunky book (min 20 pages decorated - as you would number pages in a book is how to count 20 pages; min size 4x6").

1 handmade journal (min 30 pages decorated with journaling frames, ready for use; min size 4x6").

3 stationery sets, each includes an envie and 2 sheets of at least 5.5x8.5" paper. (hand decorated).

2 Post It Note pads in holders.

1 pincushion (comfortable usable size).

1 needlebook (to hold at least 30 needles or pins comfortably).

1 carved rubber stamp (at least 2x2" or several small equivalent)

1 sewn / crocheted pencil bag or tote bag or shopping bag.

1 handmade pendant (any medium).

1 cuff bracelet (any medium).

1 beaded bracelet with charm.

1 necklace (any medium.

3 knitted or crocheted dishcloths.

2 handmade or 3 melt n pour soaps, not mini sized (check profile for allergies).

1 handmade or 2 altered gift boxes with tags (generic themes or blank).

1 altered / mix-media item not listed above (senders choice) OR 1 handmade item based on your partner's profile *Please make this equivalent to one of the items above. If unsure, PM me.

These items have to be handmade, from scratch by you! No passing received items! Items you pick are sender's choice but for themes you might check your partner's profile to get inspired!

If you wish to make one super awesome item like a larger version of the items above or do two of the same item above, clear it with your partner first. As long as they are happy, I'm happy!

Make sure to protect your items well for mailing.

No computer print outs for papercrafted items. Proper stamping technique required. No junk supplies to be used. No sticker slapping. No cheap plastic beads or junk findings.

As always, tidy work is expected no matter what the medium. Make it nice! If your style is simple, make sure it is awesome!

I am going to be vey strict for ratings this time. I may or may not have time to angel this one. Even if you have swapped with me before, if you have any 1s or 3s you MUST PM me ahead. No exceptions. I have a terrible memory and it takes a while to read through the explanations when assigning partners. I have a 5 month old so time is tight sometimes! That way, I can just quickly check ratings and be done.
