Picture of Non-Featured Gift Exchange
Now, You can probably see what this is by the title, but i'll tell you anyway. Do you know about that crazy (but cool) gift exchange? Well, you have to be featured to do it. I've never been featured before, and i thought it was really exciting. I want to do it so bad, so....The Non-Featured Gift Exchange is born!

Step 1: Rules

Picture of Rules

2. Get done by the deadline- August 2nd
3. You can have any theme or idea. 
4. Send me this information so i can match you up with some one. You can also find someone in the comments

Type ( Apple, arduino, bikes, boats, camping, cars, CNC, decorating, electronics, furniture, gardening, green, home renovation, kids, lamps, recipes, science, sewing, solar, tools, travel, wii, woodworking, or other)

I’m in. What I Make: a polymer clay action figure or doll Difficulty medium Price: about 10 euro’s in materials Type: other (sculpting) What I Want: a cool little vehicle/machine/robot or a cute little monster masynmachien from Belgium
Yay, we're gift exchange partners!!!
Yes, great! Good of Carson to pik it up again and she did some good matching!

The inspiration engine in my head is tikking, but I will not tell what direction it's heading ;-)

I will need some time however, as I have some priority gift making to do this month. A number of friends of Tika are celebrating their "Jump" (turning 12), and I have to keep up my reputation in giving self made gifts ;-)

Best regards
Hi Scoochmaroo,

Here are some pictures of me and my daughters each posing with the cap you made me. Thank you very much!

Also many thanks for the Caprisun wallet you made me. I use it daily. A couple of days ago it caught the eye of my colleagues and got a lot of attention. It turns out to be a great conversation starter to tell about Instructables. Of course, my closest collegues heard me talk about Instructables a lot already ;-)

Question: is the matching by pair or by ring? I mean:

by pair:
  • A <-> B
  • C <-> D
  • etc
by ring:
  • X -> A -> B -> C -> D etc

Pair. And i have decided to match everyone again.

What I'd like to make for someone: maybe a kool lookin' clock, from an instructable on this site =D I'd be willing to make this size gift package for someone (choose all that apply): (S,M,L): I will make a smallish medium object I'd be willing to receive a smaller or larger size gift package from someone than the one I make for someone else: sure!
