Details of swap:
Heres the deal:  I know that there are a lot of you who think that swapping sounds like fun, youre tempted to try, but then, you chicken out.  You think, what if my crafting isnt as good as my partners?  What if I screw up?  What if I dont understand how to do this no matter how many times Ive read the swapping guidelines?  So many what ifs!  This is your opportunity to get your feet wet in the swapping pool with folks that are in the same boat!  This is your chance to ask all of the questions that youve ever needed answers to!  So, come on inthe waters fine!  I will be your guide through the world of swapping.  If you have any questions or concerns throughout this swap, please PM me or post in the forum!  There are some rules that must be followed in order to have an optimal swapping experience.  Some are Craftsters rules, some are mine! 

   I will require regular posting in our swap forum throughout the course of the swap as well as posting AS SOON AS YOU HAVE SENT ME YOUR INFO!  By regular posting, I mean that I want you to post at least 2 times a week.  If you want to do more, go ahead!  I want to create a fun, group feelingswapping is so much more fun when you get to know each other and communicate about what is going on with your projects!
   Keep in regular contact with your swapping partner!!!  Some people end up talking more than others, but even if you dont become fast friends with your partner, check in with them so that they dont think youve fallen off the edge of the earth.  Let them know that youre working on their crafts.  And, most importantly, the more you talk, the more youll get to know what they like!
   Now, this is Craftsters rule:  YOU MUST PM ME AND YOUR PARTNER WHEN YOU SEND AND WHEN YOU RECEIVE.  IF YOU ARE SENDING WITHIN YOUR OWN COUNTRY, YOU MUST HAVE A DC# (DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER)THEY COST AN EXTRA $.50-$.60 IN THE US.  WHEN  YOU PM TO SAY YOU HAVE SENT, BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR DC NUMBER.  IF YOU ARE SENDING OUT OF YOUR COUNTRY AND CANNOT GET A TRACKING NUMBER, YOU MUST KEEP YOUR RECEIPT AS PROOF OF SHIPPING!!!
   When you receive your swap package, you will then need to post in the gallery that will be created so that you can show off what you have received.  While posting pictures is not a requirement, I think that especially for this swap, it would be really great if everyone did.  If you dont have a digital camera and cannot get access to one, please ask your partner to take pictures before they send. 
   Ahhh.the crafting requirements.almost forgot:  Lets do 1 Medium item and 3 small items (you may do a variation of this1 large and 2 small, 2 medium and 1 small, etc.).  You may also substitute one of the small crafted items for a small purchased itemjust be sure that it is something in the spirit of the swapi.e. something your partner would actually want, not something that you grab because you dont want to craft anymore and you saw it cheap.  The terms large, medium, and small are all relative.  I like to look at them from a time standpointLarge=3 or more hours, Medium=1.5-3 hours, and a Small being 1.5 hours or less.  This is so important: IF YOU ARE GOING TO SEND MORE THAN THE REQUIRED AMOUNT, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR PARTNER FIRST!!!  IF YOU AGREE TO SEND EACH OTHER MORE THAN THIS, FINE! 
   Oh, Ive probably forgotten something, so make sure that you read the information on swapping provided by Craftster.  And again, ask any questionthere is no question that has been asked so many times that it cant be asked again!   And just a reminder, I WILL NOT be crafting in this swap unless it becomes necessary for me to be a Swap Angel!  Im here to organize and guide!
   One more thing.keep in mind when filling out the questionnaire that the more flexible you are about what you receive, the easier it is to pair you up!  Personally, I like to allow my swap partners the flexibility to craft the things they love to craftwhile keeping in mind my tastes.
