What is a shop?
A shop is a post in this thread, listing the items that you have available to be claimed. As long as you can post a list of items, with pictures if at all possible, you have a swap shop! You can also manage your shop pictures on your own picture hosting and just post links in your shop post. It's up to you to keep your shop as up to date as possible by removing items that have been claimed (transfer pictures to the gallery) and posting any new items you want to add. Items in your shop should all have a 'price' between 1 and 3 points. Make sure it's clear how much each item costs and use a recognizable title if you can (for example: green sparkly scarf if there are more than one green sparkly scarf # 1)

CLAIMS
- When you claim an item, pm all 3 organizers (alteredmommy, lapoli, Phizzychick) AND the person you claim from. Claims will be first come, first served. The first person to send a PM to all four of the proper people IN THE PROPER FORMAT will get the item.
- Rather than keeping track of the number of claims like the other ongoing swaps, we will be using a point system for this swap.
- When someone claims an item on your list and is confirmed by an organizer, you are responsible for removing that item from your shop post. There is a gallery that you can transfer your pictures to, see below for the link.
- When you send and receive an item, PM all 3 organizers (alteredmommy, lapoli and Phizzychick) AND the person who sent it to you.
- DC# are required on an object that is eligible for one if sending internationally please keep your postal receipt until your item is received.  If your item has not been received within a reasonable time (3-4 weeks domestic; 4-5 weeks international) an angel can be arranged if you have a DC# or postal receipt.  If not you will be required to remake or offer something else from your shop and resend.
please remember to include the send by date (one week from the claim date) in your send and receive pms

When claiming it needs to come to us looking like this:

make sure the To: box includes ALL the proper people in your pm ALL the organizers and the person you are claiming from/sending to/receiving from We need to see ONE message with everyones name on it to be valid! (hint- put quotes around each name except the last one you type)

When you claim it needs to look like this:

When you send it needs to look like this:
Subject: Shop the Swap 3 - SENT

When you receive it needs to look like this:
Subject: Shop the Swap 3 - RECEIVED
Send By May 30th once again, don't forget the send by date
xladyluckx to raynbow - sheepy soap - (1)

Claims must be in this format, or they will not be honored. If you DO NOT receive a claim in this format, please do not send the item. If you wish you can send the claimer a PM reminding them of the proper format for claims.

If you want to include a personal note in the PM as well, it's fine, but please make sure it is underneath the claim information.

You can include several claims in one post, but make sure each is listed seperately and that it is clear there are multiple claims.


POINTS
Here are the most important things you need to know about your points:
- all persons NEW to the swap get 3 points to spend to start with; swappers from previous Shop the Swaps (from Round 2 to now) carry over their points to the next month they sign up for.  Round 1 had a different point structure, please let us know if that was the only STS round you were in.
- if you plan on leaving the swap at the end of the month please spend down your points to 3, you must leave the swap with the same 3 points you started with!!.  Negative feedback will be given for leaving with less than 3 points
- Every time someone claims an item from your shop, you get the price of the item in points. ****You cannot spend your points until you have physically SENT the item and pmd the proper people****
- Every time you claim an item from someone else's shop you spend the amount of points in the price of the item.
- Once you have +7 points (TOTAL of current and pending), your shop will be temporarily closed for business until you have less than 5 points. Please edit your shop post to put 'CLOSED' in large bold letters to make it clear to everyone when your shop is closed. There will also be a list near the top of the thread with all the closed shops.
- Once you have 0 points, you can't claim any items until you have at least 1 point.
- The organizers will keep a running point total at the top of the thread, but you should keep track at the bottom of your shop as well. All claims from you and that you make for this round only must be listed there.
Please use this format at the bottom of your shop:

list all claims made to your shop

Shop the Swap is one year old!!!!!

sign up thread here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237127.msg2600168#msg2600168

I thought I'd condense the swap explanation for anyone thinking of joining up (those 2 pages of rules can be a little intimidating....but it sounds much more complicated than it is)  Basically the Shop the Swap works like this:
-you need to be 18+ and have participated in 2 swaps with positive feedback
-this is a different swap in that you start with finished items.  Make a post in the shop thread with pictures of your 5 or more items and 4 supply items if you wish.  Thats your shop.  Each item must be marked with a point value from 1 to 3 points
-You get 3 points to start with when you first join, after that your points roll over from the end of the last round to the new one.  When you leave the swap you need to have 3 points to pay back this "point loan"
-Take a look around the shops and see what you would like to buy with your points.  You can "buy" from any shop that is open(check the top of the shop post). Send a claim (see the sign-up post for the format we use and who to send it to) and deduct the points from your total
-When someone claims from you, send your item out within a week (DC# required within the USA, save your postal receipt elsewhere)  You cannot spend the points (they are pending) until you have pm'd us that you have sent (and of course until you actually have sent!)  Once you've sent, add the points to your total
-Once your points are at 7 you have to close and go shopping (no point hoarding!)

This is it in a nutshell!!  Do read the signup post for particulars about the claim/send/recieve pms and other specific information.  If you have any questions please feel free to pm me Smiley

244  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Steampunk inspired pendents on: March 02, 2008 03:19:30 PM
I've been loving all the steampunk stuff I've been seeing around Craftster and was inspired to make some pendents for my Shop the Swap out of some old watches from an auction box of junk.  I took them apart and picked off all the little gears and stuff (some fun with no real jewelers tools...)till I had just the "carcass" of the watch left.  Then I used E6000 to glue on various gears and some antique rhinestones salvaged from some old earrings.  I think they turned out pretty cool....  
click the pics!


The third one was done with a flattened old silver soup spoon, it has gears, brass heishi, watch bits and a rhinestone glued on it, much bigger than the watch pendents.  I'm finding it really hard to dig up old watches now that I'm obsessed with these, the newer watches I've thrifted have too much plastic junk in them.

250  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The Golden Age of Grotesque Shrine on: January 17, 2008 11:51:57 AM
My partner in the 12 days of Christmas really loves Marilyn Manson, especially "the Golden Age of Grotesque" album and one of her big wishes in the swap was for a shrine.  I am not familiar with MM's music at all (my partner is the same age as my oldest kid  Smiley) so it was kind of a challenge for me to say the least...


I constructed a foam core shadow box (about 10" by 8", a couple inches deep), covered with tissue and overpainted with black gesso and red acrylic.  The inside has some gold tissue covered foamcore squares with lyrics from one of her favorite songs embossed on it.  The rusty doll arm holds her favorite line from that song "If you're not dancing, then you're dead" (which I actually had to remake cause I missed the "then", the shrine I sent has the line within a gold metal frame) which the severed legs dancing reference.  Theres some of my rusty bits here and there and a distressed doll head, well just because I like it.  I wanted to leave lots of room for her to add other things to personalize her shrine, which I hope she does.
