This is a name swap, where you take the letters of your partner's name & include an item starting with each letter.
ex:

A ~ A handmade angel wall hanging
R ~ A handmade bookmark in the color red
A ~ A pkg. of apple flavored candy

Minimum of 5 points, with something to represent each letter of a person's name.
At least 3 points crafted, and the rest can be purchased.  (each point should equal a small item, so total of 5 smalls -- could be mediums, if you are spoiling someone Wink  )
..... here is more info from Craftster:
Quote
This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-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

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

If you are crafting for someone with a short name, you may duplicate letters
or go on into their last name, if you wish!
(You might even want to craft something with the whole name on it as an extra.)
Please include a note to explain which item goes with which letter  Smiley
I'll plan to match partners with same length names (if possible) so crafting requirements will be even.
Come join in the fun!

check out some previous galleries Smiley  note that I've lowered the size requirement this time,
since we don't have as much time to craft, but you can always spoil your partner  Smiley

VERY IMPORTANT. . . Please read before signing up:
Because this is a small swap with a short crafting period (a little less than 2 weeks) it is very important that you are positive you can commit to the cost and time for this swap before you join.  No one wants to be flaked on, especially on Valentines Day!  Also, since this is a small swap, make sure you can craft the loveliest, sweetest valentine package to the best of your abilities, in the amount of time given.  If you arent willing to do this, please do not sign up.

Now, for the nitty-gritty details:

** This swap has 3 parts:
a small (1 point) crafted item......since we have a short crafting time this round, make at least 1 small to medium-ish item for your Craftster Valentine, and spoiling is encouraged if you have the time!  
For more info on how to evaluate points, please visit http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.msg3712343#msg3712343

PLUS
** You will craft a handmade Valentine. . . it can be crafted from whatever medium you choose (paper, felt, fabric, clay, etc.)

PLUS
** You will also send some treats/sweets for your Valentine.

Additional requirements:

**DC#s are required for US swappers.
**PM both your partner AND organizer (thats me!) when you send AND when you receive.
**I highly recommend photographing your swap package before you send, just in case your partner cant post photos in the gallery.
**Post photos of your goodies in the gallery when you receive them from your partner.  I try to give speedy feedback once swap requirements are met, so the sooner you post, the sooner I give feedback!
**I would like for everyone to post in the thread at least once a week so I know you are alive, kicking, and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swaps more fun for everyone!
**First time swappers that meet Craftster swap requirements are welcome!

*****Please label all PM's to the organizer as VALENTINE SWAP.*****
