Gift exchange

I have a question about the Gift Exchange contest that I believe applies to other people besides me. It is in the line "Since we're just getting started with this idea we're starting a little small. Therefore, this gift exchange is only open to featured authors." I am wondering if future gift exchanges will be open to other people besides the ones featured. It is a great idea, having a world-wide gift exchange! Anyways, I'm an ok writer, but doubt I will ever get featured, so will I ever be able to enter? I am just saying that it will be a lot more fun; more people, ideas, and happiness. I believe future gift swaps will allow anyone to enter without having to be featured. Thanks for listening! Please comment if you have similar thoughts or ideas

Entry for the gift exchange

My skills include: cooking, sewing, sculpting, zookeeping / herpetology, painting, puppet-making, electronics hacks for Halloween Here's a link to my featured Instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Convert-a-bird-feeder-into-a-wild-bird-waterer/ https://www.instructables.com/id/Recycled-Denim-Shopping-Bag/ What I'd like to make for someone: I love gift exchanges but I lived in apartments for many years, so I know that sometimes it is best to receive a memorable but consumable gift. For my gift entry, I will create special chocolates from a custom sculpture designed for the recipient.  I have been casting art in chocolate for several years.  First, I make a sculpture using special food-safe clay.  Then I take a mold using special food-safe silicon mold material.  And finally, I cast the sculpture in chocolate, using powdered sugar as a mold release.  You tell me what the recipient likes and I'll make the sculpture to match their interests.  I can also cast one piece in acrylic if that would be desirable, so the recipient will have a memento after the chocolates are eaten.  Note, however that after I cast with acrylic, the mold will be unusable for food, so it will all be a one-of-a-kind food art experience.  Transient, impermanent, never to be repeated. This process is incredibly flexible, so use your imagination.  Imagine a big chocolate Cthulhu surrounded by little chocolate Cthulhu minions.  Or a flight of diminutive chocolate butterflies.  Or a bust of lincoln. Actually, I don't think I'm that good a sculptor.  Maybe I could do Beethoven. I already have created molds for large and small Venus of Willendorf, several small calaveras, a tiny bite-sized penis, a delicate dragonfly, several sizes of scarab beetle, an ammonite fossil, and a large spider.  I can send a box of any of those, or create a new one.   The Venus of Willendorf are very popular with my friends.  The ammonite fossils were a hit at the office.  What design would you like? I'd be willing to make this size gift package for someone (choose all that apply): (S,M,L) S or M (I don't think I could refrigerate L sized chocolate for a trip in the mail.) I'd be willing to receive a smaller or larger size gift package from someone than the one I make for someone else: I don't want anything larger than a hat rack, unless it is for outside. What I like: Art, light toys, knitted Cthulhu beasties, things that have been made more useful than the original designer intended What I don't like: Things made from trash that still look like trash I absolutely can't have: (due to allergies, pets, etc) No foods except for unflavored chocolatey chocolate.  No herbal concoctions, soaps, essential oils, or anything like that.  I have lots of plant and food allergies. Type of thing I'd love to receive: wall art, light toys, sculpture, anything with a zombie theme, anything that has been more useful than the original designer intended Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? No, because I will have to ship the chocolates with dry ice and I'm just not sure they would let me do that, plus it would all melt sitting in customs and be a big unattractive lump by the time it arrived. Confirm that are at least 18 years old or, if not, that you have the approval of a parent or guardian:  I am older than 18. (opt) Here's someone who can keep a secret that knows what I like, in case you want to PM them with questions: I will cast a few chocolates today and post better photos later.

Member gift exchange?

I just heard about imgr doing sort of a secret Santa type gift exchange for valentines day and thought that was a super cool idea. While we're probably too late for v day, maybe that would be a fun thing to put together for a "spring cleaning" maker trade. There's a lot of amazing talent on this site and I bet some of us could definitely stand to clear our workbenches of surplus or unsold projects. Each person would get the name and address of another member and send something they make, and receive something from a different person in return. I'm happy to help organize it, but I'm not sure about the best way to assign gifts since we can't just draw names out of a hat. Suggestions? And do we divide it by country so nobody has to deal with international postage, or leave it wide open? I welcome ideas and definitely would like to gauge interest.

Who Wants another Gift Exchange?!

Awhile ago, there was an event called the gift exchange. This is where other members could exchange gifts to another member. Though, only people who had at least one featured instructable could exchange gifts. I think Instructables should bring this back (just in time for the holidays) but offer it to every one. Please, voice your opinion, and if you agree with me and would like to see another exchange please say so in the comments. Hopefully the instructables staff will take notice and give their people what they want!

My gift exchange has arrived! Double Trebuchet Greatness!

For the Instructables gift exchange I was paired up with Biggsy. They made me this awesome Trebuchet set! I have two Trebuchet's a red one, and a blue one, with matching little defence walls.  Biggsy said that they work well with marble, but I only had airsoft bb's to hand, which flew very nicely. I really enjoyed doing the gift exchange, and look forward to any future ones! When the trebuchet's are not being played with, they are going to live on my shelf of other misc items, to be looked at and fiddled with. Thanks Biggsy! - gmjhowe

Exchange Tshirt for a larger size?

Hi friends....I love this site and do like to win, even if it's just a bunch of positive comments!  Recently I won a t-shirt and I didn't realize how small/close the sizes run.   (I believe I requested a women's large and in the comments I noted that I wanted the equivalent that would fit a women's chest 36-38".  I was disappointed that the Tshirt ran exactly 37" with no room to breath.  Unfortunately I didn't realize I was supposed to add a few inches for movement as none was built into the size.) My shirt has not been worn and it still has the manufacturer's paper tag attached.  Is it possible to return it to Instructables for a larger size? If so, then I'd like to request something that measures 42" from armpit to armpit - which would be great after shrinking!  (I realize the larger size may be considered too large for the female sizes available, and if so, the equivalent man's size would be appreciated over one that doesn't fit) If this isn't an option, perhaps future winners can be asked what size they want their shirt to run "from armpit to armpit".  Not only will this make more T-shirt winners be happy, but also, more Instructables advertising will be seen on the streets ;-D mega thanks!
