.And what exactly is going to be determined after sign ups?  Huh

I'm really tired and really pregnant so maybe I'm just reading this a little silly?  Tongue

I'm a little tired so maybe I'm not getting it... is it 9 ornaments total or 3? In other words 3 per each person we are crafting for or 1 per person?

LOL, I think that maybe she was so excited when she wrote this that she worded it all a little unclearly  Grin

So, we don't really have a choice as to whether or not we sent outside the US? Don't you think that that is kind of an issue given that we'll be sending to 3 different places? I think that's one of the questions that is in the area that says copy and paste ALL of this into your post.  Huh  Tongue

i think the organizer can set the rules of the swap, and the interested participators can decide if they would like to do that swap based on the rules.

I think as a participant I can ask about certain things if they are unclear. I've also organized quite a few times and see this as being more complicated than it has to be, which is perhaps why I was confused.

So, I totally agree that as an organizer, you can make the rules, and I can decide whether I want to join the swap or not.

That being said, the last time I posted something to Canada, it cost me close to $15. And that was with almost the cheapest shipping option (the cheapest option was a dollar less, I think, and would have taken weeks to arrive.) It wasn't even an especially heavy swap package.

The max I've spent shipping in the US is $8, I think, and the DCN adds another buck, tops.

So, maybe I'm just being cheap, but $6 more expensive, multiplied by 3 packages to send - that's not insignificant money.
 
I do recognize that it can get painful to organize when noone wants to ship overseas, but for me atleast, $18 is significant additional money in shipping, and requires me to be extra-thoughtful about joining the swap.

Sorry - it wasn't meant to sound like I was bitching.

This sounds like a really fun swap, and since I'm addicted to ornaments, I'll probably join, but I did want to be thoughtful about it, since I was very rudely surprised by the $15 postage charge the one time.

Well, I am signing up and I hope that javastain gets to organize it, and thanks to (her), I greatly appreciate it. I suggested it, but cant organize it yet due to the requirements.

But I would be greatly dissapointed if the swap was organized by someone who limited it to the US only, especially since I live in Canada.

I have shipped to US addresses before, from Canada, and it is costly. Try shipping to Germany! ouch! But I think half the excitement out of it is receiving something from FAR from where you are, and if you send it early enough, its not too bad.

I would like to participate in my own suggestion, and am willing to mail to three international addresses if need be. this would seriously suck for me! But I cant organize yet until I complete one more swap, so I dont have much choice!

thank you again javastain, you are wonderful! I am pm'ing you!
