I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of very late sending, ill-communication, incomplete packages, lack of DC#'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap.ornament by lyndseynicoleHow are you spending the holidays? Perhaps you are spending the holidays cozied up at The Burrow, wandering the halls of Hogwarts, or having a good old-fashioned Muggle gathering...but really what better way is there to celebrate than with a little Harry Potter Holiday crafting! For this swap we will be exchanging Harry Potter holiday items like HP ornaments, mini-hooplas, jewelry for the Yule Ball, or a small HP present for your partner.~*This swap is for 1 small item (1-2 hours crafting time) in the theme of HP Holiday.
~*You can have up to 3 partners. EXCEPTION: First-time swappers will be limited to 1 partner. This is to help ease you into the swap process.
~*You can Invite Your Own Partners! If you obtain an Invite Your Partner (IYP), PM your organizer, pinkleo, after both sides agree. Questionnaires will not be sent out until signups closing, but you are ore than welcome to start sharing your questionnaire and crafting for your IYP as soon as you are approved for the swap. REMEMBER: You must be approved for the swap before announcing IYPs.IMPORTANT NOTES ~* Since this is a holiday swap, if you have not sent by 3 days pass sendouts, you will get temporary negative. Don't mean to be harsh, but it is sad to not to receive your holiday parcel during holiday time. This temporary negative will be reversed when your partner receives.
~* If you do not have IYP and I am pairing, that will be done by random draw (with appropriate attention to allergies and shipping given).
~* You may agree with your partner to send extras, but remember that is not regulate through me and not part of my feedback.If you want to participate, fill out the below questionnaire and send to organizer.
(Remember to send your info to the organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)

: Please label PMs to organizer with title of "HP Holiday" or "HPH". Note about Communication: For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key. Please keep in touch with your partner. Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
- SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send. When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives. PM organizer and partner when you send.
- RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.) Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
- FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) Detailed feedback will be given. Examples: Sent Early or Lack of Communication: No PMs of Sending/Receiving.
---Please note that you are sending to a partner, meaning that they are sending you a package too. The list is separated the way it is because people are sending & receiving different numbers of packages.
---Also, you are separated into Teams for jennie's and my benefit; it is helping us keep track of sending, receiving, pictures posted, etc. Remember no matter what Team you are on, you MUST send sending & receiving PMs to both pinkleo
, you do not have to send extras. Do not fret about if you are only sending 1 small item; that is all that is required for this swap. Yes, some of us will send more, but don't underestimate the glory of 1 fabulous small HP craft.
, your HPH2 item does NOT have to be an ornament; I will not give negative feedback for sending something other than an ornament. Believe it or not, some peeps don't want ornaments. Here communication is key! Find out what your partner wants; first place to check, their questionnaire.
---A small item should take 1-2 hours of crafting time. YES
, you may send a set of related extra-smalls that equal that crafting time if you wish. (And yes, you can go over that time; I probably will.
, jennie & I are open to look at your items if you want feedback, but remember we both are busy during the day (and most nights) and need crafty time too so advice may not be instantaneous.
