TeeGeeDee 08-08-2013 12:35 PM

I'm thinking about this ... it's a fun idea but my craft room isn't completely set-up yet so unsure about committing.

I have a question - If communicating with our swap partner can be done via SCS, does this mean our identity is not kept secret? Just not sure because it's under "secret" sister swaps but I know not all are truly "secret".

Thanks and ...

Happy Crafting!
Tina aka TeeGeeDee

This is not a secret swap but it is more than a regular swap because it is long-term sending and communicating with the same person. Hope you decide to join us!

Kathleen Curry 08-13-2013 02:58 PM

Fun! Love this idea to send each Monday, will keep it so organized! I'd love to play along. Here is my questionnaire, and I'll pm my details to you!

1. My favorite color combos are: Red, pink and orange. Also love black and white with a pop of color.

2. My crafting style is: Hmm, I don't know what my style is. I like lots of layers, but not fussy designs. Love to color with copics.

3. Paper lines/styles/ colors that I like to use are: MME, BoBunny, Lilly Bee, Authentique, Jilly Bean Soup, American Crafts..... Haven't found many paper lines I don't like.

4. My favorite techniques are: Copic coloring.

6. I love to snack on: Dark chocolate, almonds, fruit

8. My favorite quote or saying is: Do or do not, there is no try. -Yoda

TeeGeeDee 08-13-2013 03:50 PM

I've decided to join ... no matter how messy my desk is there's always enough room to make a card! Plus, some of the techniques will be a challenge so that adds to the fun! I don't know why one answer is not showing up in green (at least in the preview. I tried to fix it but it isn't working.)


Baker's Dozen Mondays Questionnaire

1. My favorite color combos are:

If it isn't neon I probably like it but my craft room colors are turquoise/lime, white and some black. We just re-did our L/R, D/R and kitchen in plum and green. Our bedroom is my favorite combo of yellow and green with some purple (lilac/amethyst). I also love sunflowers.

2. My crafting style is:
(for example – clean and simple, shabby chic, distress/grunge, etc.)
[COLOR="green"]This is hard to answer because my cards are made - to the extent of my abilities - in a style the recipient likes. But, I think I prefer CAS to overly fussy but that doesn't have to mean one layer. I am not fond of grunge, steampunk, or shabby chic./COLOR]

3. Paper lines/styles/ colors that I like to use are:
I'd love to try some of Gina K. Designs patterned papers, especially the ones with green, purple or yellow. I also have lots of SU colored cardstock and like many of the current patterns (and lots that are retired too). I prefer smaller scale for cards, love circles, dots and stripes and realistic florals. I think every company has at least one sheet/line that I like.

4. My favorite techniques are:
I'm not big on techniques because I'm usually rushing to get a card made in time ... usually because what was in my head didn't translate well to paper. I enjoy fussy cutting (snowflakes, flowers, cupcakes.)

5. One technique I’d like an example of is:
CASCADING CARD; iris-folding

6. I love to snack on:
Honey wheat pretzel braids, home-made trail mix (4 or more of the following: cashews, dried cranberries, chocolate chips, dried pineapple, macadamia nuts, dried cherries, dried mango, dried blueberries, chocolate-covered fruit), Hershey nuggets, esp. with almonds, tortilla chips and salsa.

7. I most enjoy making ____________________ i.e. cards, scrapping, designing home décor, making gifts, combo or other.
I mainly stick to making cards but have a few "planned" layouts/scrapbooks that need attention LOL. I also want to make some home décor items, most likely embellished picture frames but maybe a box to holds keys, etc. Would love ideas and instructions!

8. My favorite quote or saying is:
"If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice." (from the song Freewill by Rush)

Cool. Hopefully I'll have my partner by WED morning as that is the time I usually get to play with my toys (although I am off this MON which is rare!). The weekend before the first mailing date is super-busy so, if necessary, I'll just make a card that hopefully fits her style. Most of us seem to prefer CAS.


Happy Crafting!
