Been awhile since this swap was run. Who would be up for #6? I want to get back into swapping again. I would be most happy to run as always.

Details of swap:
**Please Read!**
This swap is 3 points, plus you will send your partner a sampling of at least 2 different kinds of tea.
3 points: large item or long crafting time
2 points: medium item or moderate crafting time
1 point: small item or short crafting time
You may use any combination of these point values.  You and your partner may decide you want to do more than 3 points, and that's fine.

*Participants should be willing to send internationally for this swap.*

***As I've organized several swaps, I find the main issue to be communication.  Please post in this thread at least once a week so we know that you're alive and crafting.  I reserve the right to refuse a swapper because of "lack of communication" comments in the swapper's feedback.***

If you are unable to send by the send-out date for any reason, please contact me and your partner ASAP.

Been a couple of years since this swap. I am in the mood for more tea. How about you? Would you be interested in a tea swap? Since it was a November Swap, I can start it anytime this month.

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Maybe cats and dogs just aren't your type, maybe you just needed some itty bitty squishy love. Whatever the reason, do you spend your days slaving to the needs of carpet sharks? Do your rats have more toys than you ever did? Do you agonize over every detail in the hamster cage? Scoff at dog owners who dress up their poodles and pay hundreds of dollars for grooming when you've broken eight sewing machine needles making Betty, Boop and Blinkie a bunch of cushy hammocks that they're just going to chew through anyway? Do you check your bedsheets every night for ferret/rat/cavy pellets/raisins before you lay down? Did you stop that useless habit ages ago and just hop in bed without caring anyway? This is your swap.

This is a ferret/rodent/pocket pet themed swap. If you don't have one of these pets, or a pet at all, please feel free to join us! There are just as many things that can be made for rodent/s-appreciators that can be made for the pets themselves. In fact, this is a 7 point swap, and at least two points must be spent on making items for the owner. This swap has a history of spoiling your pets so please communicate on how much you want to make. Bunny/Hedgehogs/degu/chinchilla/guinea pig owners are more than welcome.

Because of the nature of this swap, communication is really stressed with your partner.  Some people are picky with what they give to their pets, especially when it comes to treats. I'm going to try and cover as possible, but at least send your partner an introduction PM so that you can get to know them better. Also, as there will be over a month of crafting time, please try to check in on the swap thread once a week even if just to say that you are still crafting.

Please label Personal Messages (PMs) to organizer with title of "Rodent Revolution".  When you send, label message as "SENT: Rodent Revolution".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.  When you receive, label message as "RECEIVED: Rodent Revolution".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.

As in all Craftster Swaps, DC#s are REQUIRED.

Posting pictures is required in this swap.  If you believe you will have trouble posting pictures for any reason, please mention this in the questionnaire below.  Please also take pictures of the items that you send, in case your partner has any unforeseen problems posting.

Point System:
1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS
1 SMALL= 1 POINT

Just a reminder of what a large, medium and small are:

By Time
Large - 3 or more hours
Medium - 2 or more hours
Small - 2 or less hours

By Size
Large - 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

By Price
Large - $30 or more
Medium - $10-$30 dollars
Small - $10 or less
