Details of swap:
See the original thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99109.0;topicseen

The idea is to pair up people from different countries to craft whatever one might need for a foreign exchange program: the newest slang, trends, fashions, music, foods, best places to go/things to do, etc. all put together into crafty goodness (like journals, guide books, tees, totes, jewelery, and souvenirs). It's a crafty way to learn all about a new culture!

Your package must include one large crafted item, one or two small crafted items, and two small purchased items. Free stuff rocks, so throw in as much free stuff as you want! If anyone wants to do more than this, you can always communicate with your partner so that no one feels bad about their swapped items.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US (since that's the whole point!)?
What countries or parts of a country interest you most?
What colors do you like?
What colors do you dislike?
Is there anything specific you'd like to receive?
What wouldn't you like to receive?
Do you have any allergies?
What are your clothing sizes?
Anything else you want your partner to know?

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.

Sorry, but I need to wait until you have pos. feedback before I can approve you for the swap! You can send me your info, but I can't guarantee you'll get feedback in time to get approved! Did you PM the organizer and ask super sweetly?

Maybe i got to sit out on this one.

I just sent my package on the 14 and the guy said it'll get there in 10 to 14 days.

That would mean I'll probaly get a positive feedback at least after the 24th.Sigh

Well have fun guys.I'll be watching out for the gallery.

Kool-aid: If you are newbie to Swaps, then you have to complete your first one and receive positive feedback before you can get going in a second Swap.  Wink
