Swap name: Charm Swap!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: snowwhitesuicide
Sign-up date range: 2/6/07-2/20/07
Date to send item by: 3/10/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 12

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Which means if you won't ship internationally, this swap won't work for you!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? ALL AGES! (Make sure you have permission if under 18 and are capable of doing so!)

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: A revisit to the "Charmed I'm Sure" swap of 2005! In this swap 12 Craftsters will make 12 identical charms, keep one for themselves, and mail the other 11 to the other 11 swappers.  At the end, all twelve Craftsters will have matching Craftster-made charm bracelets!

The charms should be STURDY! This means using either a key-ring (12mm split ring for example) style connector or a clasp (lobster claw for example) connector. Charms tend to snag so make sure yours wont fall to pieces if that happens! Try to keep them no bigger than a bottle cap...any bigger would be impractical as a charm.

Be sure when mailing that your charm wont tear through the envelope! (Happened last time!)

This is my bracelet from last time to give you an idea of how cool this swap will be!




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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

REGARDING SHIPPING AND DCN'S-
As you may know, Craftster usually asks each swapper to purchase a Delivery Confirmation Number (tracking number) for each package as both proof you sent and a way to track your package. In this swap, that could get a little pricey for some, so you have the OPTION.
IF YOU CHOOSE NOT to get the DCN's for each package, YOU WILL be responsible for sending out another package if yours does not arrive. So you can save some money, but be prepared to send out another charm if one happens to get lost.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO get the DCN's...you are in the clear.

So it's up to you.

WHEN YOU PACKAGE YOUR CHARMS- I cannot stress enough, your best bet is a small bubble mailer, if you must use an envelope, tape that sucker up! Last time we did have a couple of empty envelopes arrive with tears in them and no charm! If you package something poorly, you will be responsible for it!

I will give everyone their feedback asap after their charms are received, this is my first time organizing and I promise to be as on the ball as humanly possible!

Thanks for signing up, if you miss the sign ups, don't worry, there will be another round I'm sure!

Contact me with ANYTHING you need!

Does this mean that you have to get 11 tracking numbers?

I was thinking about that...That could get expensive! I wonder if the Mods would allow us to work around this. Maybe you could get DC's for one or two people...just as proof you sent?

i really like this swap idea! I want to join up but but but.....damn. i wonder if i have enough time...hmmmm. *runs back to check sendout dates....* yup. that should be enough time!  Grin


here is my response to your dcn question as well! please note that if charms get misplaced in the mail you MUST remake and resend them! If you choose to get dcn's you are in the clear!

are they sending one charm per package?

i know for some of the atc swaps, we were not requiring dcn's because the packaging was so small.  and the post office requires a certain thickness of envelope...

if you are sending tiny things, such as charms, i dont see there being an issue with not having dcns.  but if one comes up missing, your participants must send again.  There is no way to track, so keep that in mind.
