Swap name:crafty detective swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:la_chrystelle
Sign-up date range: 1-2-2007 / 10-02-2007
Date to send item by: 17 march

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

All ages allowed? Or 18+? yes, but please make sure you can send out!

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:
...Each person will have a secret partner in which they will stalk around craftster and other possible areas like blogs, wists, websites wherever you can find info about your person. Revealing yourself to your partner is not allowed until after you have sent your items. In other words, PMing them to ask what they want is not allowed. You have to play detective!

bob finds that his secret partner is sue. He goes around craftster, finding all the bits of info about sue that he can...reading her profile, her old posts...seeing what types of things shes into. He then goes out and gets her a crafty knitting kit because he noticed her love of knitting, and he also made her a Jordy bag because he saw that she didnt know how to sew but that she loved those bags. He may also throw in a delicious organic chocolate bar because she loves chocolate oh so much. Now, we could get really carried away with this, so lets say we can send whatever our hearts desire.

you will send out 1 large item, 1 medium and 1 small. (or 2 medium and a  4 small items, and so on but try to send the same your partner does. You can communicate if you want to spoil each other but do not ask question anything that isn't about sending more or maybe a bit less. )But you could always spoil your partner ofcourse!

You are in a need of a wists and at least 75 posts on craftster. Make sure you have post were people can find things about you and not posts that say I did this for etsy!

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

Name of swap: crafty detective swap round 2
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
your wists:
any other websites that can give your partner hints:


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

This sounds so fun....I think I should make sure I can wrap up at least one of my other swaps before committing to this, though...I'd want to make sure I had plenty of time for snooping!

This is an awesome idea!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

This is such a cool idea, but unfortunately, I cannot join. I only have a little over 65 posts, and most of them are not things I have made.. let's just suffice to say that it would be the most complicated detective job for my partner.. Roll Eyes
