Just a reminder that your crafts for the Celtic/Norse swap are due out in one week, February 19th.  If you're going to be late, that's fine, but you must communicate as much with both me and with your partner.

For those of you who want to send early, please remember that you need to get delivery confirmation when sending within your own country.  If sending internationally, you must save your receipt to prove that you did actually send.

Since we already have someone who shipped their swap, I set up a gallery here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152107.0
I will be keeping track of send-outs there.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are the partners!

Raina - shiftychica
HeathenPeddler - starfish13
Samsara - Ozarkcat
gossamer_gull - chimerix
Fizzle7033 - zenochka
miss_cute_boots - Knit_core
kd - Cjsachiko


You should have gotten your partner's info via pm by now; if you haven't, let me know!

Anyway, get to know your partner, start crafting, and HAVE FUN!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Swap name:  Celtic/Norse Themed Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  ShiftyChica
Sign-up date range:  8-January-2007 to 22-January-2007
Date to send item by:  19-February-2007

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  No, but if we reach 25 I'll be looking for someone to help organize before I accept any more people.

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?  NO

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

This is a swap to celebrate the history, culture, art, and mythology of the Celtic and Norse peoples.

We'll have a month to craft once we receive our partners.  Swap should be one major item (one you've spent approximately 5-8 hours on); one medium item (3-4 hours); one or two small items (1-2 hours); or a combination that will be equal to these guidelines in time spent (i.e. 2 large items).  You don't need to time yourself, of course; I just want to make sure every one puts in the about same amount of effort.  Expect to spend about 10 hours crafting over the course of 4 weeks.

Remember to have fun!  Get to know your partner, learn something new about these exciting cultures!



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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap
Craftster username

Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

. . . oh man, why does this have to overlap with my first swap ever? *laughs* Oh, well, if I manage to finish early, I've got a bit of a window to sign up in, and if I don't, I can at least stalk the gallery and hope for a round two. Smiley Mmmm, Norse and Celtic themes . . .

Well, i'm in the middle of a swap right now, and I haven't been terribly productive lately, so I'm going to wait to see if my "OMG WTF am I doing CRAFT CRAFT CRAFT!" drive kicks in, cause if it does, I can totally do this swap.

I wish I could do this, but I don't have much access to crafting supplies (They only let me bring so much to school with me) and I really need to work on school stuff. I will definitely be stalking the gallery though to see all the amazing stuff people make!
