Discussion thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302558.0

This is a 5 point swap:
3 pts = large
2 pts = medium
1 pt =  small

**Your package can include any number or size of items as long as they add up to at least 5 points**
(Spoiling is perfectly acceptable, as long as it is agreed upon by both partners  Wink)

And here are the Craftster guidelines for item sizes:
LARGE:  3 or more hours, $30 or more (a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse)
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet)


Please remember this is a general guideline only, and you must use your own judgment on this. If it takes you three hours to make a simple paper bookmark, you're not going to want to count that as a large item!

Other Swap Info:

**Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for all US packages.  International Swappers must retain copies of their shipping receipts.
**Feedback will be given once your partner receives and posts pictures.  (Remember to take pictures before you send just in case your partner is unable to take pictures.)
**Please post in the thread at least once a week.  Even if you can only muster "Still here!"  This will let me know you're alive and still kicking.
**One week before the sendout date, I will be PM everyone to make sure everything is going smoothly.  If you will be sending late, please make both myself and your partner aware.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Great Mac Program for Swap Organizers on: November 25, 2008 09:40:03 AM
I recently got a macbook and I discovered this really neat program called Bento 2.  It is designed to organize data and it is super customizable.  I'm in the middle of organizing my first swap so late night I created a bento file to keep track of all the swap information.  It is so easy to use and it makes it very easy to see all the information.

Just thought I would share this tip!!
