Details of swap:
This has been a really fun swap in the past. It gives participants a chance to get to know more about other members of our crafty community.
The idea is to find something that you have in common with your partner, and craft to that. Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books. Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids. Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run. Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.
And we wanna hear what you have in common! So make sure when you post your goodies in the gallery, that you share what your commonality is!
Also, don't forget that you need to post in the thread when you sign up, and drop in at least once a week, let us know you're crafting away merrily.
This swap will have a more in-depth q'naire than you might be used to, just to help get some juices flowing regarding what to share with your partner. I realize that we are going to be sharing a lot of ourselves with total strangers, so be intelligent about what you tell them, but share as much as you feel comfortable with. The questions are mainly for guidelines, so if you feel uncomfortable answering any of them, feel free to skip those ones.
This swap will be for one medium and 2 smalls --OR-- 2 mediums
. Spoiling is allowed if agreed upon by partners. (Of course spoiling is allowed!) A handy dandy guide to sizes:
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours
-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
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
