Swap name:  Unique Name Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  TheWorldFamous
Sign-up date range: 6/10/06 - 6/21/06
Date to send item by: 7/14/06

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Why yes, yes of course

All ages allowed? Or 18+? Everyone welcome, just make sure your parents are cool with it.

Details of swap:  This swap is for all of us who never had anything personalized as a child.  Participants will personalize crafted items for their partner.  You must send one big item and 2 small items, or 3 small items, but if you want to send out more stuff, you are welcome to do so.  If you were lucky (or unlucky) enough to have a common name, you are still welcome to join; we'd love to have you!

I will not be around on the 14 and 15 of June, so if I don't respond to you right away and you send in your info on these dates, don't be alarmed.
