we need to do something fun for friends of craftsters.. FOC is when you donate money to leah to help pay for things OR your a swap angel.. you must have the friend of craftster logo under your name to join!!

this is going to be a secret project.. i will match you up with a partner (you wont know whos crafting for you) and we will make several things for them and send them out periodically.. because its a secret the form to send in is VERY detailed so that you dont have to message them and ask them (if you still have questions they can relay them through me.)

each friend of craftster will send me their form, and a wishlist.. you will make them things off their wishlist..

FIRST MAILOUT: 8/3/06 (small crafted item)
SECOND MAILOUT: 8/17/06 (large crafted item)
THIRD MAILOUT: 8/31/06 (surprise)
FOURTH MAILOUT: 09/06/06 (tiny store bought item ($5-10) and a letter explaining who you are!)
FIFTH MAILOUT: anywhere between 9/06 - 9/20 (a thank you note thanking your partner for everything theyve made for you. OPTIONAL: and a small crafted item)

Some new stuff about THIS round:

  • I am strict about DCN numbers. If you have no dcn numbers, this will be noted in your feedback, no matter what. (if you are sending internationally, you are not required to have a DCN but you are required to keep your receipt)
  • Communication is key; if you're going to be late, please let me know ASAP. We can work anything out if there is communication. If you are late with your package and don't communicate, this will be reflected in feedback
  • You must let me know when you receive. You don't, you'll be cited in feedback for non-communication. 
  • I need this swap to end on the day I specify (9/20). So if you are a flaker, or if you are not communicating, you will get negative feedback. (Of course, if you communicate lateness or something is going on, we can work it out)

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Please note there is a PERSON CAP this time! There are 30 spots available (well, 29, with me already signed up) so please REMEMBER to sign up early. However, even if we fulfill our cap, I can't match people up before the signup end-date, 'cause I have school stuff to finish until then. Thanks! S.

I'm thinking about joining but have a question about this:

I am strict about DCN numbers. If you have no dcn numbers, this will be noted in your feedback, no matter what.

I can't get a DC number if I'm sending international (from Canada), so are you planning to allow for this?

I'm sorry I should've made it clear that a DCN is only needed when shipping within your own country. Not if you are sending internationally  Cheesy  However, just wanted to let you know that you should keep your receipt if you are sending internationally.
