Details of swap:
This swap is for everyone who has a short wishlist of things they really want, but don't want to buy for themselves (or are far away from a craft store). It's also for everyone who has a big long wishlist, but only certain stuff gets chosen and there are a few specific things you really really really want. Heck, it's also for everyone who likes giving and getting presents!
So here's the deal. This is definitely not a stash buster swap. You will get a list of at least five distinctly different things your partner wants. It is your mission (should you choose to accept it) to create a kickin' rad package for your partner. Chances are you will not have everything your partner wants. You will almost certainly need to purchase things, which is why this swap is perfect for people who love shopping (especially for others). Since this could get costly, you will be paired up with another person based on the amount of points you want to trade. Some recommended point values are 3, 5, and 8 points. However, you can feel free to give ranges (like 3-5 or 8-10 points). It is recommended that most of your items are craft supplies, since you will be paired up based on points and not crafts you know (so, for example, if you have a knitted hat on your list and your partner doesn't know how to knit, you're out of luck). However, kits (like resin kits or beading kits) are perfectly acceptable because (with a limited amount of research) your partner can make you a kit even if it's not a craft they usually do.
Even though you probably won't be crafting anything (just picking up supplies for your partner), the send-out date is far away in case you need to order things off the internet.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up, and get ready to spoil (and be spoiled)!
