Swap name: Button Addicts Swap - Phase 1 (or BAS-P1 for short)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: missamorphosis, with the help of kiki*eks
Sign-up date range: March 9 - 17
Date to send items by: March 30 but sooner works, too

Limited to a certain number of people? No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
***Everyone who signs up must be willing to send outside of their own country to participate in this swap. Since buttons are light-weight, postage shouldn't be that expensive. If possible, and if requested, organizer will try to match swappers with others in their own country but can't make any promises. So if you're not willing to ship to other countries, best to wait for another phase. Also, DC#s are not required for this swap, but it's a good idea to get a valid receipt showing you've sent in case there are any problems.***

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages. Just make sure you can get to the Post Office if you can't drive yourself.

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 - already done. kiki*eks will be helping with the buttons swaps.

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 just a warm up of sorts for the other phases of the Button Addicts swaps. In Phase 1, each swapper will send out ten buttons to 5 different people, with the option to send out 10 to 10. Fifty buttons will be sent in all, as well as 50 buttons received, unless you choose to send out to 10 different people, totaling 100 buttons. If you send vintage or older buttons, just be sure they aren't dirty or damaged; I've seen what sitting in a jar for years can do to a bunch of buttons. Also, buttons can be found just about anywhere. If you're new at collecting them, check craft stores, but also check out garage/estate sales, thrift stores, clothes. Keep in mind that no matter how hard some of them are to part with, you'll be getting "new" ones to add to your own collection. Smiley

Other Phases to follow this swap are:
Phase 2 - Decorate a Button Jar or other container, and include a specified amount of buttons for one partner
Phase 3 - Swap button-created crafts with a partner, where buttons are the main focus
Phase 4 - Swap hand-made buttons with one partner

Each phase is a totally separate swap and will be treated as such. Signing up for one DOES NOT sign you up for all of them. Just because you do one, doesn't mean you have to do all four.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: BAS-P1
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?
Do you want to be considered for swapping just with participants in your own country? (yes, no, doesn't matter)
How many people do you want to swap with--5 or 10?
Are there any specific types of buttons you're wanting to add to your collection? (color, size, shape...etc)
Do you prefer vintage/older buttons or modern/newer ones?
Would you prefer to have 10 buttons all the same or just a variety?
(No guarantees...)
Anything else you want your partners to know?


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

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

If you do phase one, do you have to do all of them afterwards?

No...they're individual swaps and will be treated as such.
I tried to edit that info into it all last night, but Craftster went down in the middle of it.

Edit: Got it in the info now.

What a fabulous idea. I should be getting feedback on a swap next week. Fingers crossed it will be before the 17th and then I'm definitely in.
