Watching for now. 2 things:

1: Does collageart count as handmade or must is be drawn or painted?

2: A 4.6 rating cut-off is really low. A person can have many 1 and 3 ratings and still manage a 4.6 avarege. You want to consider raising that a bit to make people more comfortable signing up for this. I know this is your swap and therefore your choice, so this is just a suggestion :-)

Morgaine 02/ 2/2013 #

That should have read you may want to consider and not you want to consider like it is some kind of order ;-)

Mariskasl 02/ 2/2013 #

hello @Morgaine thank you for the comments. Collageart is fine!

And I will change the 4.6 to a 4.9 :D

How about beaded book marks

BunnyMama 02/ 2/2013 #

Can it be crocheted? I saw some really cute ones on Pinterest and wanted to try.

Mariskasl 02/ 3/2013 #

@sherig47 @BunnyMama beaded and crocheted is allowed!!

PonPonMuffin 02/10/2013 #

I am new to swapbot and just finished my first one (a card swap). I am an avid reader, so would love to join in on this one, if you would allow me to take part.

SexySprite 02/16/2013 #

Hola, I do stamping/cardmaking and paper crafts can this be a hand made paper bookmark , multiple layers with stamped images etc?

Mariskasl 02/16/2013 #

@GiddyMichelle you are welcome to join!

Mariskasl 02/16/2013 #

@SexySprite you are free to use any kind of crafting, as long as its handmade!

Just watching for now because I'm new here and not sure quite what all the lingo means. I haven't written my profile yet, but would I be eligible to do this swap once I have? Sorry if this is an annoying qu and there's an obvious way for me to find out...

Love Katie x

P.s. Great idea for a swap!

Mariskasl 02/18/2013 #

@ChronicKatie You can join once you have filled your profile. That is one of the requirements. :)

halfpintspec85 02/20/2013 #

Can it be a picture that is personally taken and turned into a book mark???

Mariskasl 02/21/2013 #

@halfpintspec85 yes offcourse!

marchy 02/21/2013 #

dimensions of the bookmark? what size should it be...?

GiddyMichelle 02/21/2013 #

I am so excited to make my bookmark...thanks for approving me!

Mariskasl 02/22/2013 #

@marchy you can just take a regular one as an example. You can make it slightly bigger or smaller if you like. As long as it can be used comfortly in any book. I can give you dimensions; i think about 5 x 20 cm. (1.97 x 7.87 inches).

Mariskasl 02/22/2013 #

@GiddyMichelle you are welcome :)

sherig47 02/22/2013 #

Thanks found some pretty beaded ones with ribbon.

deonnariegler 02/23/2013 #

is there a place to post pic's of what we received?

Mariskasl 02/23/2013 #

@deonnariegler i think i might have to open a facebook account for all my swaps where i can add pictures

QuilterinMotion 02/23/2013 #

Flickr is a good place to post our pictures if everyone has it; easy to join-free. I just learned that photos in Flickr can be posted on your profile in SB! Thanks RyeRye for that knowledge!

Serenity 02/26/2013 #

Hello Mariskasl, I am not new to swapbot but have been off of here for a while so I would like to fully understand about this book mark I really want to join. Do they have to be a paper craft. I work with metal or iron bits to create a book mark. Is that acceptable. I know there was nothing mentioned in the description but most people make paper ones, I just want to be sure it's alright? THank you Seren.

Mariskasl 02/26/2013 #

@Serenity metal or iron bits are perfectly fine! As long as it's handmade.

mortuaary 02/26/2013 #

Can't wait to swap!

elleto 02/26/2013 #

I have started a cross stitch one will I need to attach it to card or will it be ok on it's own? Thanks in advance :-)

Mariskasl 02/27/2013 #

@elleto if it can be used as a bookmark it will be fine

elleto 02/27/2013 #

@Mariskasi thank you :-)

newsong 02/28/2013 #

Um just curious, is this a sender's choice? Because I havent got an assigned partner >. .< Sorry for asking....

walkaboutgypsy 02/28/2013 #

hey what date are the partners assigned?

Mariskasl 03/ 1/2013 #

@walkaboutgypsy I will assign them just now. Here, in Europe it is already march 1st, but the usa is behind about 7 hours so i just got the assign button to click on.

Mariskasl 03/ 1/2013 #

@newsong it is sender's choice, you will get your partner soon, after i go through al the participants.

Bluegirl 03/ 1/2013 #
