I love all of the threads offering aesthetics, song matching, name writing, descriptive associations, etc. and I always want to do something in return for those that create something for me.
So, I thought it would be fun to have a trading thread! [name_m]Just[/name_m] post the talent or skill you are offering (can be anything) and others can reply with the talent or skill they are offering in exchange.
To make sure things don’t get confusing, if you will please tag the poster in your reply, so we can all see who you are trading with, I think that’d be good.
To start us off, I’m offering Bold and [name_f]Busy[/name_f] Collages for Names or Combos, similar to this:
Thanks in advance for participating! Have fun!
@Scottie491 These collages are so beautiful I can’t stop looking at them - all the layers Please could you make me one for [name_f]Thea[/name_f] [name_f]Marianne[/name_f]?
I am offering childhood day in the life descriptions based on single names or combos. You can specify an age between 0 & 4 if you’d like to.
Wow this is such a great idea!!
@EdgeOfTheMeadow I would love to have a description of my 3 year olds if you can: [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Hallie[/name_f] & [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] [name_u]Teagan[/name_u]
@Scottie491 Could I have a board for [name_f]Kitty[/name_f] [name_f]Francesca[/name_f] please?
- I am offering UC readings! I have been told that I have a calming accent so perhaps I could use that to my advantage here!
- I am also offering a song matching station where you give me 1 or two 2 combos (or single names) and I will give you a song which I think matches the vibe/aesthetic! - I have quite an eclectic taste in music so expect songs from the likes of Metallica to [name_u]Billie[/name_u] [name_f]Holiday[/name_f] to Wham!
This sounds such a fab idea! I’d love to join in if I may?
@Scottie491 You make stunning collages absolutely gorgeous! Would you be able to do one for julia frances please?
@EdgeOfTheMeadow a childhood day in the life sounds so much fun!! could you do one for joanna charlotte aged 4?
@EmilyMcA yet more fab ideas! I’d love for you to find songs that match leanne rachel & victoria joanne!
- I am offering a past decades rename! All you have to do is tell me a decade (between 1900-2010) and a few adjectives or a short paragraph that describes you and I will try and name you based on names that were popular in the decade that you have given me. Also, don’t forget to specify whether you would like a male or female name
For [name_f]Leanne[/name_f] [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] I am getting an early 2000s vibe so I will go for ‘Without You’ - [name_f]Christina[/name_f] Aguilera and ‘The Only Exception’ - Paramore
For [name_f]Victoria[/name_f] [name_f]Joanna[/name_f] I am feeling strong 70s vibes so I will match her with ‘SOS’ - ABBA and ‘Please Mr Postman’ - Carpenters
@EleanorVintage I would love a past decade re-name! I’ll go for the 2000s (I was in my teens!)
A bit about me (just let me know if you need anything more)
I am average height with blonde hair and green eyes. I am 33 and a professional dancer. I’m [name_f]English[/name_f] but haven’t lived there for almost 20 years (we are moving back permanently this summer!). I’m very into vintage clothing from 70s-90s. [name_f]My[/name_f] favourite colour is green
@EmilyMcA So this was a bit more action packed than what I normally come up with! [name_f]Hope[/name_f] you like it.
…looks up from his bowl with a thoughtful expression on his face. Something has caught his eye as he was eating his cereal. He swings his legs over the bench and runs to his wellies which are by the back door. With some effort, he gets them on (the wrong feet) and runs out onto the lawn.
[name_u]James[/name_u] saw a bird, an unusual bird - bright yellow - flying from his house into the birch tree in the garden next door. Its silvery trunk rises up over the garden fence and its leaves dapple their grass in amber crescents in the autumn. [name_u]James[/name_u] thinks of these bright, autumn treasures in the grass and wonders if it was a leaf he saw, but it is early summer now and the leaves are deep green. He frowns and thinks, little brown eyebrows furrowing.
There it is, a bird like Tweetie Pie from a very old cartoon that Daddy showed him once, sitting in the tree! James’ eyes widen and he takes an awed breath. As he watches, a large, sleek magpie careens into the Tweetie Pie bird and they fall, squawking, below the fence where [name_u]James[/name_u] can’t see them.
“Hey! Hey,” shouts [name_u]James[/name_u]. “Not hurt him, big stinky bird!” There is part of the garden that’s divided by chicken wire. [name_u]James[/name_u] runs to where the fence ends and the chicken wire begins. He grabs hold and presses his face sideways against the hexagonal gaps, straining to see through and into the part of the neighbour’s garden where the birds fell. What he can see makes his chin wobble: the magpie is pecking at and flapping over the little yellow bird! He runs back along the wooden fence and starts to climb. [name_u]James[/name_u] is not allowed to climb the fence but right now he is glad he has practised: He needs to help the bird. His thick wellington boots don’t make it easy, but he manages to shift up from the concrete post to the sticking out knot and get one hand, then the other, over the top of the fence and pull his chin up and over.
“Hey, get off - get off - Mamaaaaaa!” [name_u]James[/name_u] shouts, looking back towards the house.
His Paw Patrol ball catches his eye. [name_u]James[/name_u] lets go of the fence and falls all the way down, bumping his back. He’s stunned for a second, then he remembers what he needs to do. He hooks his ball under his arm and climbs again. It’s difficult and the ball starts rolling out from his arm, but he makes it. Shaking with the effort of keeping his purchase, he rolls the ball up the fence and onto his palm. He aims down at the birds and Boomph - [name_u]Chase[/name_u] and [name_m]Marshall[/name_m] bomp the magpie on the head; it caws angrily and flies away. As this happens, [name_f]Lena[/name_f] and [name_m]Peter[/name_m] come out of their house crying, “Oh my goodness, Candy!” and hands take hold of [name_u]James[/name_u] under his armpits and lift him down. The adults discuss what has happened. Apparently [name_u]James[/name_u] has a scraped chin and knees from the splintery fence and will have “quite a good bruise” on his back from where he fell but he has saved [name_f]Candy[/name_f] the [name_f]Canary[/name_f]. He is a hero, just like [name_u]Chase[/name_u] and [name_m]Marshall[/name_m], who used to be his favourites before he started watching PJ Masks, but maybe they will be his favourites again now.
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Hallie[/name_f] and [name_f]Lucia[/name_f] [name_u]Teagan[/name_u] to follow!
I would love to hear a UC [name_m]Reading[/name_m] from you!
Goodness wow - this is incredible thank you so much! Really made me smile!
I grew up on looney tunes cartoons and I am insistent that my children watch them as well so this part was really lovely
I will get onto the UC reading when I have a quiet house
@EmilyMcA I love both [name_f]Christina[/name_f] Aguilera and ABBA! I can just imagine a victoria joanne dancing round her bedroom in dungarees to ‘SOS’!
Here is your past decade re-name…
Your 2000s name is natasha jade.
Because you mentioned you are really into vintage clothing from the 70s-90s, I wanted a name that had stayed in the Top 100 consistently from then until the 2000s. The great thing about the 2000’s is that a lot of the names that were popular then had been carried over from the 80s & 90s so when you hear a name of someone who was born then, you often don’t hear it and immediately are able to put a specific decade on it. You are a professional dancer so I thought natasha had a few nicknames that could be used as a stage name if you wanted. To me, natasha could be someone who is trained in many styles of dance. She could be a ballerina or a hip hop dancer. I didn’t want a name to reflect a specific type of dance (ie, a more classical sounding name might immediately say a ballerina). jade was in the Top 100 in the year 2004 and I thought it complemented natasha perfectly when you said your favourite colour was green!
[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this was alright
Thank you for making this! I’ve been wanting a thread like this for a long time but haven’t gotten around to doing it. I’ll certainly be back here in the near future to contribute!
That’s so beautiful - I have a very positive connotation of [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] (and she was a dance partner of mine!) so I really love it thank you!!
I don’t have the easiest UC - you did well with all the PN’s! Thank you
I love this board you make i would ask you to make one for the combo: Adriano Lucas and in return I would help you coming up with combos of names you are stuck with
I would like a description of 4 year old: Evelina Sofie, Adriano Lucas and Matilda Eloise if possible
And in return I will make board with the names you ask for
Here is your board for the exquisite [name_f]Thea[/name_f] [name_f]Marianne[/name_f]!
I would love a day in the life description for [name_f]Hildie[/name_f] Sunflower please (any age). Thank you!
@EmilyMcA Here’s your board for the adorable [name_f]Kitty[/name_f] [name_f]Francesca[/name_f]!
[name_m]Can[/name_m] you please do songs for [name_f]Estelita[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] and [name_m]Alphonse[/name_m] Rook? Thank you!
Thank you so much - its lovely!
For [name_f]Estelita[/name_f] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] I am having mixed vibes of 2000s from [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] and 60s/70s from [name_f]Estelita[/name_f] - So I will try and mix it up a bit.
- ‘Pack Up’ - [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] Doolittle
- ‘Voulez Vouz’ - ABBA
For [name_m]Alphonse[/name_m] Rook I am feeling 70s rock and blues vibes - I initially read Rook as [name_m]Rock[/name_m] and now its in my mind .
- ‘Take Me to the River’ - [name_m]Al[/name_m] [name_u]Green[/name_u]
- ‘Black Night’ - Deep Purple
