Swap name: Jim Henson Appreciation Swap Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: emlee_bee (first time organizer.  please bear with me Cheesy)
Sign-up date range: March 29 through April 14
Date to send item by: May 14

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24 or less preferably.  But more is merrier

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

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, but please get parental permission before hand

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:
(taken from the original Jim Henson swap)
This Swap is to celebrate Jim Henson, so it can include anything he was involved in. When we hear the name Jim Henson, the first things that come to mind are Muppets and monsters; however, Jim was also involved in creating some wonderful fantasy worlds where Fraggles danced their cares away, Gelflings raced to get the shard to the crystal in time, and Davie Bowie wore tights.

Because this swap is not limited to one show or movie, it is possible that you may get a partner who has different Henson favorites than you do. I will do my best to match people up with similar interests, but I may not always be able to do that. For example, a Sesame Street fan might be paired up with a Dark Crystal fan and have to make crafts that pertain to their partner's likes and not necessarily their own.

I don't want to put a limit on sizes and items of what should be sent.  please plan to correspond with your partner as to how many items/sizes to send.  At least plan to make one time consumed item, since i've given you a month from the end sign ups to the send out date.

My Rules:  Once you have sent your information to me, please post in this thread so that i know you are alive and breathing, and wont have to call Doctor Bob to come find you.  I'd like to hear from everyone once crafting time starts on a fairly regular basis, because when im getting no contact, i begin to worry.  thanks so much

I couldn't resist this!  It would be a shame for me to miss out on anything Jim Henson, so I HAD to fill up my swap card.  Thankfully, I'm almost done with two of my swaps!  Smiley

Did you know that Snuffy's the snuffleupagus' real name is Aloysius Snuffleupagus?  Bit of trivia there for you. I remember when he was invisible back in the 70's.  My husband remembers when Sesame Street aired its first show.  Wow...we're old farts.  Since I'm dating myself...  does anyone remember "Emmit Otter's Jugband Christmas"?  Grin  Ok... now I have to join... I'll PM you now... Beware my partner-to-be... I like some of the more outlandish characters.   Shocked  MMMwwwahahahahaha
