Third verse same as the first!

The is the official sign up thread for the sweat shoppe swap round 3~This is the sweat shop swap, a labor of love if you will! The opportunity to put a sampler of your items out in the crafting world, with a business card, or your Etsy store location, is here! We will be crafting in multiples of 5 (and no more than 10) so you may craft 5 items or 10 items (not 6 or 4 or 11). The number of items you craft will be the number of items you receive back. The items will be a medium size, and can be 'bundles', for instance, you can do a bundle of 3 thank you cards, and send 5 bundles (or 15 cards). You will have the option of choosing your top 2 favorite items of the other crafters. No guarantees but I will try to get everyone at least one of their two favorites! Woo hoo! here are the thread links to the discussion thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 and second round gallery which has the links to the sign up threads and first round gallery etc...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100170.0

This is your opportunity to put your best work out there for others to sample and enjoy. This round is not very different than round one or two. Here are the basic rules;

*you are to craft in sets of 5 and you may do one or two sets.
   ~ for instance you may make 5 beaded bracelets OR 5 sets of greeting cards where each set has 4 cards.
   ~ you may enter a total of 10 items (or in essence put your 'name in the hat' twice) and those may be 10 sets of the same thing, or 5 of one item and 5 of another.
*these items should be a good representation of your work
*each item must have a retail cost of between $5 and $10 (you may send out items that would retail for more, and understand that you will likely have a wide range of return items Smiley )
*This is a huge swap. Communication is key, there will be a check in just before send outs, you are required to reply within 3 days of that post (this will probably be around Aug 21) or you will be considered a no-show and be removed from the swap list with a negative feedback
*please DO NOT send early, after the official check-in your name (and your partners) will be green on the official list, once your partner's name is green on the list you may send to them. IF you send early to someone not green, you may end up with negative comments in your feedback! (for not following directions!)
*don't hesitate to ask questions over in the discussion thread if you like, this is a SUPER FUN swap, and there are a lot of returning swappers to help you with those questions (as well as myself!)
*I'll send you an approval reply PM and you may post in this thread. Pictures are fantastic so everyone knows what kinds of things they have to chose from.

Questionnaire to send to Javastain;______________
Your craftster name
Your real name
Your e-mail address

When we get back from Riodosa, New Mexico, combo family reunion and Amtgard escape. (as in family two days and Amtgard for the rest) I'll post up with my final choices for loots to go out.

Right now it's looking like sleep masks and Ren pouches.

We should be back the 25th, so don't be surprised that I drop off the planet for a bit.

Ok, so I've decided I am going to put my name in the hat twice, so I will be doing 10 items... I am undecided whether all 5 will be ami-style crochet food stuff, or if I will come out with some other set of items... I have been tossing around some ideas we'll see! But as it is I am in... think lemmons, limes, apples, tangerines, bananas, bell peppers, carrots, eggplant, mushrooms, and so on! I'll find the photos I have somewhere...

Javastain is my name
crochet food is my game!
