Keeping track of swaps
So, I was looking at someones profile and in their about me they had the swaps they were in. Brilliant!
So, I went through the board and put all my swaps on my profile to. I think I may go back and write down who were my partners and if I recieved my stuff or not.
Just thought I would share this awesome idea with y'all. Might make hosting swaps, and joining them, and keeping track of flakers a little easier. (=
I saw that too, on someone's profile too, I thought that was a great idea. I might do it too, when I get more time to look back at the one's I have done.
It would also be really nice if there was a separate spot on the profile page just to list the swaps.
Synthetic Stars does it but you are right Jeanette, maybe you ought to put it to Crafterella and Tom? x
I've been in so many swaps that I can't remember which ones I was in! lol I'll admit that I'm lazy and don't really wanna go back and check the swap board, but it is an awesome idea! Thanks, Tara!
OOOO good thinking, i tried to keep a notebooktype thing but it wasn't working for me! I'll have to go look at your's Tara and see if it's something i could keep up with...def. would work with the flakers!
And Jeanette great idea about that on the profile! would def. send Cat an email on it...who knows!
I been going back to see all the swaps I have done and so far i have two pages filled in my notebook of all the stuff i have done...this is going to be a looooooooooong list o.o gee golly I promise i dont have an addiction...*looks around innocently*
i only join 1 at the time so its easy to remember.. lol i just look in my pm box if i forget i get about one a month or less so the last one is always the person i am swapping whit telling me what they like and there address.
oi just check out my list so far on my profile, seriously I might have a slight addiction....lol
oh I should try that too
The only thing with that is that it would have to be moderated or monitored by someone because the flakers may still put it up on their list and people that haven't done any may put up the newbie one even if they haven't done it to be able to access other swaps. Maybe you could add a swap you've done but it won't come on your list until it has been confirmed by someone?
But all in all it's a great idea.
I keep a COK Journal and anyone who has had a newbie swap with me gets one little handmade book from me. I also track when they are sent and addy's.I happened to be looking through it yesterday and it makes nice reading I always practice my letters in it also to try and work through some dyslexia issues.I stick in notes too as a place to collate these happy thoughts.
Aw that's a good idea Essex Debs I bet you enjoy looking through that.
I'm only just finishing the newbie swap so I'm not at all swamped with swaps! Hopefully will get more involved now though
I also keep track of the swaps like Essex Deds, I use a little notepad. I have divided it into Swaps I completed with date and swaps I received packages from with date. Plus keeping track helps me keep up with all the swaps I'm interst in.
I keep track mostly using a database app on my iPod touch, without it I'd totally lose track... but on my profile here I just pop everything in when I sign up or whatever so I can see at a glance
Once the swap it complete, I take it away! I find it helps stop me overloading myself
It would be awesome to have a swap box on our profiles though <3
LOL Sug: "hi my name is Sug and I've been addicted to swaps for as long as i can remember"
Chorus of voices: "hi Sug"
I'm picturing all of us sitting around a circle drinking coffee talking about our crafting addictions!!!!!
Sorry warped mind!!! LOL
