1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: July 2015 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Gallery & Discussion thread on: July 31, 2015 04:25:39 PM
Today I received these amazing pendants from Kittykill! She ordered them from The Pendant Emporium on Etsy - they do amazing work! (nice plug there, eh?)

These are both soooo me - Kittykill knows me well! I am so excited to wear them! Which one first?!?!

I received this adorable painting from Sarasmile - it is sooooo me! I'm hanging it in my office!




Thanks for letting me play along this month - it was loads of fun and a good way to ease back into swapping!

Have any of you done the Random swap before?  I've done several versions of it, the first one PinkMafia organised! That was a long time ago!

Nope, no minimum pins or etsy faves. I prefer an in depth questionnaire and a lot of partner chatting.  I feel like a lot of times swappers 'forget' that part of swapping is getting to know your partner.  I also will do a check in question every week and all will be required to respond.

Correct,this swap is for crafted items, not supplies. Any supplies would be counted as extras.

Why don't we just make the box an adult shoe box? I know there will still be some differences, but we'll use a basic measurement that I'll add to the swap and get as close as we can!  Great idea!

The summer is a quieter time for swaps in general. I like to think that there aren't many opportunities because all the swaps are going so well! Smiley

mandit - I will post here when I set up the swap. Smiley  I haven't seen anything for that price for international shipping either.  I'll make a decision on the format and it will be in the swap, so make sure you read everything. Smiley

The last Random Swap that I organised, I used the medium flat rate box and it worked well.  In previous versions, I've done make whatever you want, as much as you want and one large/one medium/one small items.

Let's see what the majority want to do. Smiley  I'm open.
