I will hopefully have the partners up tonight- if not, early tomorrow morning. I still have to do a bit of fiddling around. I think(?) that there are going to be 2 partnerships of 3 people, that will make managing the international people easier/ make it easier (and hopefully less expensive) for shipping.

I see that there is two threads for the Mini Poppet Swap Round Five. Just wondering if this is the place where we will be posting from now on.

Yep! This is the one- the other one was just to see if there was any interest in holding the swap again this year!

Everyone will be required to post in this thread at least once a week with an update regarding their status
once the swap goes live!

my first batch of Suncatcher eyes came in - I'm so glad I ordered from them!


I cheated.... I found a craft store about 30miles away (yep...i really made the drive...) and bought plain old brown teddy bear eyes and orange cat eyes (was all they had anyway...) and busted out my trusty dremel XD and my lovely engraving bit...only takes me about 2min per eye to slowly grind out the color and paint over it XD the smaller eyes are faster but if I go to fast the dremel skips and hits the outer eye....and meh...thats a pain

If you want to avoid potentially damaging them with a dremel, I just try to get as much of the paint off as I can with nail polish remover, and then what is remaining I just sandpaper. It probably doesn't take more than 5 minutes or so an eye.

Sorry that I haven't been around too, too much to add to the conversation- I'm just working on my last essay of this semester (2 pages to go- it's coming slowly), but I will be all yours come tomorrow after 5 pm! Wink

***International participants, please take note of this! You MUST keep a record of your postage receipt, if for any reason your package is not received, we will need a copy of this receipt!***

Details of swap:
In this swap you will just be crafting one completed and clothed (if applicable) poppet for your partner. ***Just to clarify, this swap is considered a poppet mini swap in the sense that we are simply about sending a single poppet, as opposed to sending a poppet with supplies and whatnot, as would be required in a larger swap. However, if you would like to make or receive a mini (or smaller sized) poppet, please indicate it in your questionnaire and we will do our best to partner you accordingly*** Check out the poppet along which will help you with any questions in creating your poppet or give you inspiration http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205341.0. As we would like to keep this swap as fair as possible and not have anyone feel as if they sent more than their partner, please just keep the package to the one completed poppet, unless you discuss swapping more with your partner beforehand!

Things to keep in mind:
1. Flakers will not be tolerated.
2. This swap has a mandatory weekly check in. This means that you must post (at least) once a week in the discussion thread in order to keep both your partner and us, the organizers, in the loop as to how your poppet is progressing and in order to reassure us that you are still alive in the world of poppets. We will be keeping a record of such posts and if you have poor communication, it will be noted in your feedback.
3. If you have not heard from your partner for awhile or notice that your partner has not been active in Craftster for a while, and you are feeling concerned, PM us! Or if for any reason whatsoever you have concerns, feel free to PM us!
4. We will not approve anyone who has multiple feedbacks stating that they have poor communication, have not used a DC#, or is a consistent late sender.
5. Everyone is expected to send on time.  If you are going to be late, you must notify us ASAP. Those who are late and do NOT notify us, will receive negative feedback which will not be removed or corrected until the poppet is sent, we receive a DC# and the package is received.
6.  Posting photos in the gallery is a rule of this swap.  Failure to do so will result in a comment in your feedback. A big part of swapping is posting your goodies in the gallery and acknowledging your partner's work, plus, we want to see all of the new additions to the poppet family! If you do not have access to a camera, please contact your partner and ask if they can take pictures of both packages which they send/receive.
7. If you are an international swapper or sending internationally and are unable to get a DC# you must retain a copy of your shipping receipt. If for any reason your package goes missing and you do not have a copy of the receipt to provide us the organizers, you will have to resend to your partner.
