At the opera tonight!  Repo! Weve all seen it; weve all joined the army, Now lets show it off!

This swap is going to be a point based swap. All participants will be expected to swap a minimum of 8 points.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points

For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:  

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost. [/size=8pt]

Rules:

All participants must check in at least once a week, by pm or by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

If you and your partner want to discuss different requirements, let that be between the two of you. We just dont want disappointment if you send an awesome package and get the minimum from your partner (even though, obviously, everything sent is going to be amazing.   )

Some ideas:
Tee shirts, pendants, bags, Amigurimi... The possibilities are endless!

Details of swap:

For this swap you may either make something that is on your partners wists or something based on something from their wists.

For this swap a variety of items is also strongly encouraged, don't put 80 sewn skirts on there! Make sure there are a variety of knit, crocheted, sewn, polymer clay,  jewlery, handmade yarn and paper crafted items That way you wont have to worry if you dont know how to do a certain type of craft it is okay to use your partners wist as inspiration. It will be a lot easier to craft for someone, and a lot easier for the organizer to match people up!  

Before you sign up make sure to go through and edit your wists, take off things you already have or don't want anymore. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a wists account to join this swap.  You must have a minimum of 80 items in your wists account.  At least 60 of those items must craftable. However, more than the minimum amount is strongly encouraged.

It's been a while since I've seen anything about a Farscape swap, would anyone be interested in that?  The last round only had like 6 people in it and that's okay but I'd just like to see if there is any interest.
