Details of swap:
This is the second round of a very fun swap we had. Please remember that I WILL be checking your wists to make sure it is the required size.
This is going to be a fun quick swap, because it is small. It is a mystery swap and there are quite a few mysteries to it. You do not select themes, or pick items to recieve. You do not know who is sending to you, or where in the world they are from. You will receive a partner to mail too, then make 3-5 points worth of items to mail to them. This swap requires some stalking to decide what items would best suit your partner. Remember, your partner CANNOT know who you are, that ruins one of the mysteries, so no writing to say hi, or ask questions. That is why your wists needs to speak for itself. Remember that the person you are sending to may not be the person sending to you! If you'd like email your partner secret anonymous notes or e-cards, just be sure you use an anonymous email!
Points are as follows:
Large- 3 points
Medium - 2 points
Small - 1 point
Sizes are described as:
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium= one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks
-Big= $30 or more
-Small=$10 or less
Please know that some form of wishlist is required. You need to have a wist or etsy favs or something similiar (or both!) with a minimum of 50 items. The more the better. Just remember that the clearer you are about what type of items you like the more likely you are to receive items that suit you. You do not nessecarily have to craft items exactly as seen on the wists, they can simply be ideas of your partners likes and dislikes.
If I forgot anything, or was unclear just call me an idiot and tell me what I forgot! Also I am very chatty, so please feel free to pm me if you need more info, craft idea help, questions, or just if you want to brainstorm.
