Details of swap:
My "craft crap/craft junk" supply has swelled again. With the new year starting, I want to clean it out and swap for some different stuff. However, I can't commit to wrangling a big swap with lots of people and international shipping, so I am doing a very small swap for US people with a tight deadline. (Note: if the restrictions on this swap annoy or offend you, please start a swap of your own with the guidelines that you prefer.)
"Just what am I agreeing to, Writer78??"
If you sign up, you must agree to:
-Send a mid-to-large size box of usable craft supplies/junk (it's leftovers from your collection, so it won't be brand-new quality, but please don't send tiny strips of fabric or almost-empty spools of thread, for example.)
-Buy a delivery confirmation # (it costs 55 cents, and we'll all be US-based, so no exceptions - remember, this protects you from looking like a flaker if your package goes missing in the mail)
-Mail out on time (no exceptions)
-Send a PM of thanks to your sender and post a photo and/or description in the gallery
-You probably won't want to keep every last item you are sent, so you are hereby free to "regift" supplies in a later craft junk swap or to give supplies away to friends/Freecycle or to throw supplies away. (Once you receive a box of supplies, it's yours, and I don't want you to feel embarrassed or bad if you don't keep/use them.)
Feedback will be as follows:
- Positive with note "Followed rules perfectly" if you send on time, get DC#, and PM your partner when you send and when you receive
- Positive with "Came through but weak communication" if you send on time, get DC, but fail to PM when you send and when you receive
- Positive with "Came through but no DC" if you send on time, communicate, but no DC
- Positive with "Came through but late" if you send late
- Negative if you dont' send and dont' respond to communication
