1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / SWAP swap/Scouting Swap? on: June 24, 2014 08:43:26 AM
Call me weird if you will, but I think my favorite thing about Girl Scouts was swapping SWAP's (Some Whatchamacallit Affectionately Placed - basically a broach of any kind or style).

I currently don't have any Girl Scouts, but I do have a Boy Scout and don't see why SWAP's should be limited to girls only anyway or kids, or people with kids.

Over the years I have received some amazing SWAP's - felt, foam, shrinky dink style wrappers, candy, perler beads, googly-eyed monsters.

Do you think a one tiny thing swap sending just the SWAP would be better or should their be an additional more significant crafted item? (that's not to say you can't make a significant crafted item as a SWAP). Anyone who is into SWAPs knows they tend to be made in bulk for serious trading so I am thinking if we stick to OTT people could swap their SWAPs with multiple partners.

Is there any interest in having an option for anyone who has a troop/den/pack/whatever, to trade a bunch to another leader of a group. The sizes aren't likely to match, but ideally these should be something inexpensive and not horribly time intensive or heavy to ship so making a few extra shouldn't be a problem. Hmm, might be able to work for an individual and a group too - Swapper A makes 11 copies of her item and sends them to Swapper B to distribute to her Girl Scout Troop of 10 and Swapper B sends 11 SWAPs back, ideally one from each of her 10 girls and one from herself.

Any thoughts, ideas, concerns, interest?

Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the package should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion thread. Please post at least once in the discussion thread.

When you PM the orgs for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim. Please send to both Averia and Spikefan
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 packages, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US packages and receipts are required for all international packages. If you can not provide a receipt and the package does not arrive you will need to resend the package.

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / feedback and missing international packages on: March 12, 2014 01:47:27 PM
I'm organizing a swap with several international packages that are taking a significant time to arrive. Is there any guideline available as to when to call a package missing between Canada and US or Germany and US? I know I have sent to Australia and had it take 5 weeks, but that seems very excessive to me.

I know the policy is to give positive feedback once my senders have shown proof of sending their international packages, but is that still the case if the sender says they want to remake the package? I just want to be sure...
