Original idea thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=147544.0
...

Swap name:  Lisa Frank swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  eenodol
EXTENDED Sign-up date range:  February 3rd to February 17
Date to send item by: March 15

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  No

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

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages, just make sure it's alright with your parents

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

Additional Rules (stolen from Miss Violacious;)):
1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
2. Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.
3. I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  Great Swapper: For those who follow all the rules.
-  Good/poor communication:  Went above and beyond or below and within the call of duty to keep the organizer informed.
-  Sent late/early: Three or more days late or early.
-  No dc number: Failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country.
- Didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner
- Didn't send within the guidelines of the swap: Didn't send enough items, sent too many store bought items instead of handcrafted, or clearly didn't put in enough effort. Borderline cases won't get this feedback, so if you look at the other galleries and read the guidelines you'll be fine.
4. Lateness is okay, shit happens, but sending more than a few days late will risk a feedback notation, and not being communicative with myself and your partner will risk a poor communication note.
5. Send unto others as you would have them send unto you. Do some research on your partner. Check post history, signature, and profile links for little details that will help personalize your package. It's like picking out the perfect present for someone, and it's lots of fun!
6. Everyone who is sending a package within the boundaries of their own country is obligated to use a delivery confirmation number. This is for your own protection, and it's Craftster's rule, not mine. If your country makes it prohibitively expensive to use delivery confirmation or tracking, even when sending packages domestically, PM me and get permission not to use it. Otherwise, if you aren't shipping across borders and you don't use one, it will be noted in your feedback. If you are excused from using one, you must save your receipt from the post office.
7. It's a damned good idea to take a picture of your package before you send it.
8. PM me and your partner with your DC number when you send. PM me and your partner when you receive, and thank your partner. Post pictures in the gallery within a reasonable time afterwards.
9. I am a complete and total hardass about posting pictures of what you receive if at all possible. If you don't have a digital camera, you can still join the swap, just make sure your partner knows about the lack of picture taking ability early on, so that they can take all the pictures they want as they go. I've discussed my feelings on the importance of swap package photos here. Swappers who don't post photos and don't sufficiently communicate about not doing so will have that reflected in their feedback.


Details of swap:

Ah, we all know and love Lisa Frank and her whimsical illustrations.  Or maybe you don't know her.  Look here:  http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=%22lisa%20frank%22&btnG=Search&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

Now you love her, right?  Of course you do!  We will be swapping items either inspired by her illustrations or embellished with them. 


The size requirements for your package will be either:
-1 large item and 1 or 2 small items
or
-2 medium items and 1 or 2 small items

...

Okay, to help encourage people to join us I've compiled all the ideas from the original thread.  See, there's lots of things you can make!   Cheesy


Amigurumis or plushies ,
colorful clunky jewelry or barettes(you could make animal beads or shrinky dinks of something and put them on it),
original art insprired by lisa frank,
 stenciled/decorated shirts,
 you could embroider lisa frank images onto purses or pillows or anything,
a colorful animal mask or hat,
decorated trinket boxes,
clay figurines,
decorated sketchbook/diary,
magnets,
mp3 player cozies/covers,
decorated journals,
school supplies! 
all kinds of stuff!

And here's the general item size breakdown from the Swap Guide:

By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

I seriously considering this swap....when I was in elementary school I was a member of the Lisa Frank fan club thing where they sent you L.F. stuff in the mail. The cool kids at my school used only Lisa Frank, lol.

I've never signed up for a swap, and I would love for this to be my first; I'm just scared I will do something "wrong". I loved Lisa Frank and am getting all excited at making and receiving LF schtuff.

I may want in, but am going to look at other swap stuff to get an idea of how many things to send/what type of things/etc. I'm still not clear on that even after reading previous posts.

Any advice would be appreciated.
