Swap name: Favorite Children's Book Round 4
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: bethiej78
Sign-up date range: Thursday 4/26/07 - Sunday 5/6/07
Send Book By: Saturday 5/19/07
Send Crafty Items By: Saturday 6/23/07
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): YES, 20 (this is my first swap organizing, and it's fairly complex to organize, so i want to keep it relatively low)
Non-US participants allowed?: Yes
All ages allowed?: Yes

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: NO
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: N/A, limited

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 (borrowed):
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 or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.
3. I will give detailed feedback (other than positive/negative) if any of the following apply:
-  Great Swapper: For those who follow all the rules.
-  Good/poor communication:  Went above or below 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.
4. 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.

Things happen: if for any reason you need an extension, please let me and your partner know via PM. That way I will know that you are not flaking and you will not receive negative feedback.

Part of the fun in swapping is seeing everyones loot. If you do not have access to a camera, let your partner know BEFORE they send so that they can take pictures before sending out.


Details of swap:

Each person will send a copy of their favorite children's book to their swap partner (to keep!). Copies of books can be found at local used book stores, library sales, Amazon.com, Half.com, Overstock.com, etc. If you order online, you may ship the book directly to your swap partner. Books must be shipped by Saturday, May 19th! I will need DC#s or scanned receipts from everyone!

Your swap partner will then read the book and craft items that are related to or inspired by this book. These crafts must be sent by Saturday, June 23rd --again with DC#s or receipt scans.  This is just over a month to read and craft, and should hopefully be enough time.  Be kind, and try not to send an extremely long book!

All swappers will make (& receive) 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small crafted item (or something equal to that..1 large=2 medium=8 small; 1 medium=4 small).   If you and your partner decide on a smaller/larger amount, that is fine as long as you both agree ahead of time.

For some inspiration from the past swaps:
Round One Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43329.0
Round Two Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51869.0
Round Three Gallery: (thanks zelda.suicide!) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98363.0

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!  Smiley  And if you don't feel like you can meet these requirements please don't join, nobody likes having a partner flake on them.   Undecided

everyone should have "in progress" in their profiles by now...please PM me if you don't.  Also PM me if for some reason you didn't get your partner's info (or got the wrong info) - just want to make sure I didn't make any mistakes.


Round 1 of sendout (books) by Saturday May 19th!  Send me either a receipt scan, DCN, or forward me an email receipt.  If you order from any online website and want to forward me the receipt through email, my email address is: tatum0708@yahoo.com.


Round 1 of sendout: (status updates for round 2 of sendout can be found in the gallery, linked below)

ghostgirl <----> zelda.suicide

CjSachiko <---> Ezri_B

HelenM <-----> FlowerWitch

hp_nerd <----> SherNWT

noelle <------> lizzle

petskin <-----> balletfreak

yarnisfun <---> loopylamb

globox<-----> picklesticks

stick --> jesa --> bethiej78 --> stick

We had one group of three since we had an odd number of participants.  A group of three is actually really confusing in this swap, so here's how it works.  For the book swap, bethiej mails her book to jesa, jesa mails to stick, and stick mails to bethiej.  Then, for the crafting part of the swap, jesa crafts for bethiej, bethiej crafts for stick, and stick crafts for jesa.


blue = sent
navy = sent, waiting for confirmation or receipt
green = received
purple = both
(hopefully we won't have to use these two)
orange = late w/ communication
red = late no communication
