Love reading? Hate folding corners, losing your place? Always using the nearest slip of paper to hold your spot? Then this swap is for you! Open for all book lovers to finally get something to hold their positions in the books they're enjoying.

This swap is open to people in every country, and is a great way to try out swapping internationally, without a lot of cost.  To those of you who automatically say you do not wish to ship to a country outside your own, please consider it on this one!!! You will only be mailing an envelope and the costs would be much less than in a traditional swap.  Think about how much fun it will be to get international mail!  And think about how sad you would be as an international crafter, if no one ever wanted to swap with you!  Also remember that you would NOT receive ALL international swappers.

It is A LOT cheaper to ship international on a bookmark swap. You're only shipping envelopes, so even three will be under $5.

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is always the key.  Please keep in touch with your partners and organizer.  If you are accepted into the swap, I will PM you, and add you to the participant list.  Once partners have been assigned, you may craft your bookmarks and send as early as you wish.  All swaps on Craftster, requires the use of tracking, but this is not possible when sending letters or sending internationally.  Since you can't get tracking for these, feedback will be based on if your partner received or not.  YOU MUST PM YOUR PARTNER AND WIZARDS_PUPIL WHEN YOU SEND AND RECEIVE.

If your bookmark is not received after three weeks, you will need to re-craft and send another one to avoid negative feedback.

Extras may be sent between partners but BOTH MUST AGREE TO THIS!! No one wants to feel bad for getting a boatload of extras but not sending any

- You must post in this thread before you can join the swap.
- All announcements will be made here so please bookmark this page
- Please try to create a package that you are proud of and you think your partner will enjoy receiving – do some research!

We would have the option for small groups, multiple bookmarks, or single swaps and single bookmarks so that there could be something for however adventurous you're feeling Smiley The last Bookmark swap I hosted allowed groups of three people (we can make them larger if wanted) and allowed the swappers to make more than one bookmark for each partner if all partners agreed upon it.

So how about sign-ups from August 24th to September 7th? And then crafting from 7th to 21st, and three weeks for delivery? The other swaps had always had a two week deadline on the shipping so I was going on that Smiley Does that work for everyone?

So, I had an idea for a different kind of swap and was wondering if it was something that might interest anyone. The basic idea would be that each swapper would pick a particular charity/NPO that they like/support. Then the partners would craft an item to be donated to their partner's charity/NPO.

Does this seem like a fun idea? The swappers could include an item for their partner as well.

I'm thinking sign-ups from August 9th to August 16th, maybe longer if it would be needed, with the send out being August 30th or September 6th. Thoughts? That would give two weeks of crafting time. These swaps don't use tracking, so we'd do the two weeks after you sent feedback base. If no bookmark had been received after two weeks, you'd have to craft another one and send it.

Sound good? Any changes you think are needed?
