I finished my cupcake tea towel and magnet; they turned out so cute I want to keep them myself. Can’t wait to sent it off, I hope my partner likes it.

I can't wait for this to start either! I've been out searching for cupcake themed items & I found some cupcake fabric that I'm waiting to receive from Ebay so I can craft something too. Smiles, DianeM :) P.S.- I enjoyed looking at all the photos too...got lots of ideas from them.

what is a cupcake? I thought some kind of minicake.But how do you make bathproducts of it?or candles?

TerryF 01/29/2007 #

I had fun making some fabric fused cupcake notecards this weekend. Here's hoping Kristine does the partner assignment right away on Feb. 1st!

TerryF 01/29/2007 #

Nathalie: Yes, a cupcake is a minicake. You can make candles or soap using moulds or actual muffin/cupcake tins.

TerryF 01/29/2007 #

Meant to say right away on Feb. 16th!

Nathalie 01/30/2007 #

there is a new flickr group to share swap-bot photos. the group name is "Swap-bot.com swaps"

Ok, I've got a bit of a problem & thought I'd ask everyone here for their opinion since I'm relatively new to hosting swaps on Swap-bot. There is a participant in this swap who is new (no rating yet) & has very little information on her profile. I dropped her from another of my swaps that she'd signed up for because that swap required a rating.

For this swap, I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt & let her participate, but e-mailed her asking that she fill out her profile better to show that she was serious about swapping. Coincidentally, she was assigned as MY partner to send to. She hasn't added any info to her profile, so I'm concerned that she isn't serious & won't be sending anything out. I don't know who she was supposed to send to, but don't want anyone to be left out. Nor do I want to send a nice package to someone who has no intention of sending theirs out. Any thoughts on what I can do? Or am I just being paranoid?!?

Kristine: I have responded to your concerns above via private email.
