Rare Character Swap!!

Due date is September 29th (that is when I need to receive your package. I will wait one week to return them just in case someone‘s doesn‘t arrive on schedule).
This swap is open to any swapper!!! Everyone is welcome!!

1. You choose a rare character. Not one normally not see but those we usually don’t think to swap items for. Here are a few examples King John, Shaker & Big Al, Baloo, Pocahontas, Terk, Ariel, Mulan, Jasmine, Genie, Aladdin, Rafiki, Snow White, Mary Poppins, Pinocchio & Geppetto, Captain Hook & Mr. Smee, Sleeping Beauty, Brer Rabbit & Brer Bear, Fairy Godmother, Evil Queen, Merlin.
Or a great link for ideas is:http://home.att.net/~disneysue/characters/wdw/disneycharacters.html
2. Required: 1- photo mat double matted/embellished for 4x6 photo; 1- photo frame double matted/embellished for 4x6 photo and select any other 2 elements from the list below for your pair. The mat/frame and two other elements will make a nice page kit.
ETA on 7/19: If anyone is having trouble making the frames or do not like they way they are turning out, please feel free to make a second mat instead.. Double matted and embellised!
3. There will be only 6 people per group, so you can keep the production small per group! And if you'd like, you can join another group. I will post any duplicates into different groups. There will be a maximum of 10 groups.
4. Packing Instructions - use a Ziploc for each person and put everything for that person into their bag. Please label each bag with your name so we know who made each kit. You‘ll have 6 bags to enclose in the larger (gallon size) Ziploc bag. - be sure to include your name, your DIS name. On the larger Ziploc bag please put your mailing address on your bag and include return postage.
5. Mailing Instructions- Please use the Flat Rate Envelopes ($4.05) or the Flat Rate Box ($8.10) to mail your packages of goodies to me! Include $4.05 for envelope postage (or stamps if you don't want to send cash) to return your items or $8.10 for the box postage. On the outside of your box/envelope please include your DIS name and Swap name in the bottom corner!
6. PM me with your name and address if you haven’t swapped with me before. If you have problems and need to drop out or if an emergency happens (we all know things happen beyond our control sometimes), let me know so we can make arrangements for an angel or other help if needed.
7. Most importantly HAVE FUN!!

Ok - here are the elements to choose from (if you have another idea for an element, let me know and I will add it).

It doesn't matter if it is a surprise or not but I would rather not make the final decision till I am in the process of making them. With something like this as I begin I can get a great idea that doesn't fit one element and switch something to do a different element.

I'm still sipping on my Diet Coke after taking the dog to the vet at 7 AM for surgery.

Nancy, just wondering, are you on Eastern Time over there? I wasn't sure.

Nancy, just wondering, are you on Eastern Time over there? I wasn't sure.
Yes, we finally adopted Eastern Time. In central Indiana we had never changed before this past April. There are about 5 counties up near Chicago that stay on Chicago time... so now, they are an hour behind us... It has been a big adjustment for us since I had never done it before.. It's amazing how at 9pm trying to get kids into bed the sun was still shining!!! I'm so glad school got out early.. I couldn't imagine how we'd manage through June trying to get them to bed...

7AM surgery.. I hope everything is okay with the dog... Our kitty is currently asleep in the bathtub.. Why? I have no idea!

Thanks for clarifying the time difference, Ncancy. Indiana has always been a little confusing with that. That also explains why we don't set our clocks ahead to Eastern when we go around the lake from Chicago.

Gracie, doggie, is having a small tumor removed from her lower back, but the vet is hopeful that he will get it all and that there will be no further problems. Next week, the other pup is having surgery. I feel like I'm runing a hospital here!

Yes, Indiana is very confusing.. if it's not the time differences, it's the weather!
Well, I hope everything turns out well for Gracie... and the other puppy.. I think you need to discuss with the vet getting a discount for keeping him in business!!!

the king that walks around GB in Epcot - is that King Richard or King Leonidas (I have heard both).

I think the character you are going for is Prince John (from Robin Hood) who thought he was the king. King Richard had a cameo in the movie, but I've never heard of a walk around of him. King Leonidas is the one from Bedknobs & Broomsticks, but I haven't heard of a walk around for him too.

Here is a pic of Prince John http://home.att.net/~disneysue/characters/wdw/princejohn.html

Did you send the storms my way? LOL

Hi Nancy, It's been clear and sunny over here, today, but we're probably quite a bit further north than you are. It's windy, though. You had storms? No, I didn't send them this time. But, don't go blowing further away, at least not before the Epcot Swap is done!

Could I have Old Hag for Group 10? That way, I should have all the bad girls taken care of between this swap and the other one.

I'm a good distance south east of you... but yes, we had some horrendous storms!! OmG!! Just a few minutes ago the wind kicked up and I sent the kids to the basement.. The wind was whipping those large trees around like they were twigs! No swirling..but the wind was vicious! Well, I'm glad you didn't send those storms this way!! I know last time you had major storms you thought your house would be headed this direction!! I thought for sure today I was heading towards New York for sure! So, no worries as to the Epcot swap.. I'll be here!!

I'll get you signed up for group 10.. Now, where is the Old Hag from?? See how bad I am.. I'm a Disney lover but can't remember where all the bad girls fit in! Now, the princess I can tell ya..but not the bad girls.. :confused3

The Old Hag is the altered form of the evil queen when she gives Snow White the apple.

By the time it gets through the Berkshires and Catskills it dies down a bit. We live in Eastern CT so we rarely get slammed but we have had an occasional tornado. The wind is picking up and it's getting cooler but no rain yet. On the news it looked like Mass. will get hit harder than us.

I'm a good distance south east of you... but yes, we had some horrendous storms!! OmG!! Just a few minutes ago the wind kicked up and I sent the kids to the basement.. The wind was whipping those large trees around like they were twigs! No swirling..but the wind was vicious! Well, I'm glad you didn't send those storms this way!! I know last time you had major storms you thought your house would be headed this direction!! I thought for sure today I was heading towards New York for sure! So, no worries as to the Epcot swap.. I'll be here!!

Wow! What a difference in the weather! We never did get anything other than sunshine. I did get the headache that came with your storm, though! It's still there. I hope it's calmed down there!

By the time it gets through the Berkshires and Catskills it dies down a bit. We live in Eastern CT so we rarely get slammed but we have had an occasional tornado. The wind is picking up and it's getting cooler but no rain yet. On the news it looked like Mass. will get hit harder than us.
I'm glad you didn't get it bad.. We had some more rain early morning but so far it's nice, hot, and MUGGY now! :)

I'm sorry you got the headache too.. Mine finally subsided sometime last night after I got the kids to bed and fell asleep.. So far this morning it's hot, sunny and muggy!! But the skies are a beautiful blue and puffy white clouds. chance of storms late tonight.. and I hope it stays that way!!

I still have to give you my characters for group 7 and 8. If I can, I'd like to do Nemo for group 7. I know it's not an autograph character, but they do have photo ops with Nemo at the Living Seas, which we have pictures of. If that's not good, then I'll take Aladdin for that one.
For group 8, I'll either take Aladdin (if Nemo is okay for group 7) or if I have to use Aladdin for 7, then I'll take Mushu for 8. Is this starting to sound like Jeopardy? :happytv:

Have I got you all confused? :joker:

I'm sorry :flower3:

There seem to be some characters that are rarely in the parks, but you can find them on some of the parade floats, especially the bad girls that I chose (MK and MGM parades). The elements for some of the characters that you don't see walking around much could be used with some parade layouts. At least that's what I'm planning to do.

That so works for me!!! I've not been to MGM yet so we are thrilled to find out who will be there! I never thought about the characters that usually aren't out.. You know what would be a hoot.. the broom sticks! I love the broom sticks.. Hmmm? Let me think on that one for a while!!

Nancy, there are many different characters in the "Stars and Motor Cars" parade at MGM. And, in the specialty parades, like the Halloween and Christmas parades at MK, there are some different characters that may not be in the regular parades.

My thought was Dodger from Oliver and Company (I just saw that movie for the first time the other day, love it so much as I'm a huge Billy Joe fan!) Can he be found anywhere? I was going to be basing my items on NYC if I signed up so I suppose they could be used for trips there too.

I really want the wishblade since you can use the ttf fonts but it says it's not compatible with macs. :badpc:
However all of m fonts are ttf. Oh what to do???

Hey I have a question for those in Group 2. I would like to make a shaker tag for Jessie and was wondering if I needed to make 2 because it is a tag or 1 because it is a shaker? :confused3 I am also planning on making a journal box and 2 squares. Let me know how you feel. Thanks!

I've always butted my pieces up against one another... and I've seen some done beautifully!!!

I hope this will help the project and not stress anyone out!!!

Yay, to no frames! I finished one of my groups and I did make frames for that one, but they can be time consuming.

Now if I could just find some paper that said "Jafar" to me...I don't think he would be a fan of pink flowers or red hearts.

AlexWyattMommy
07-20-2006, 11:04 AM
Jafar seems like a midnight sky kinda paper and maybe some flaming paper (kinda like harley flames) Can't you just see him on a Hog? Oh, and don't forget sand.

hopemax
07-20-2006, 11:37 AM
Yes, it would be nice if I could find those things. I especially wanted to find flames. Or just something that would remind me of the decorative styles of Arabia, but the one's I've found like that were pink or some other feminine color. But I've still got two months for new stock to come in, so I keep waiting.

AlexWyattMommy
07-20-2006, 12:02 PM
There is a Cord Scrapbooking Studio near me. They have more paper than I've seen anywhere. They have a section of Harley type items (where I saw the flames) and I'm sure there must be other items that would work. The paper was $0.79 for 12x12. I'd be happy to pick you up some flames. Just tell me how many sheets you need. I don't know that I would feel comfortable picking out what I think would be Arabic cause it might not be what you were picturing in your mind. Flames however, I can do flames and feel confident that they were what you could use. Just let me know.
