Details of swap:
This swap is for advent calendars for the holiday season. These can be the traditional Christmas advent calendar, or for an alternate holiday or celebration if desired. Each swapper will send one item, an advent calendar, to their partner.
There are many different styles of advent calendars; some made of paper, some of fabric, some of other materials; some contain small presents or toys while others reveal a picture for each day. You may choose any type of advent calendar, although you should check with your swap partner before sending food items.
Swap packages must be received by your partner by Nov 30 in order for the advent calendars to be put to full use. This swap has a lengthy crafting time and a full month between the ship date and December 1, in the hopes of on-time receipt of packages. Because of the time constraint, there will be relatively little grace period for late sending before I find swap angels and give negative feedback to late swappers. Please consider your schedule carefully and only sign up if you are sure that you can finish your package and ship by Oct 31! There is a looong signup period too allow feedback to clear out and to give you time to think about your schedule and plan ahead. To avoid customs holdups and slow shipping, I will make every effort to pair swappers regionally, especially for southern hemisphere craftsers.
