Swap name: Pond Friends Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: ptarmic wumpus
Sign-up date range: May 9 - June 3 2007
Date to send item by: July 9 2007

Link to Gallery page: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178269.0

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
All ages allowed? Yes. Swappers under  the age of 18 should gain permission from their guardians first, and be sure that they have the funds needed to craft a good swap package and ship. Swappers should also be able to find timely transportation to the post office in order to meet the send date.

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
- Does not have a history of sending late or poor communication in previous swaps


Details of swap:
This swap is all about things found in and around ponds! This can include animals, plants, inanimate objects, as long as they related to ponds or other freshwater bodies of water.  This EXCLUDES ocean-related subjects - so koi are good, but sharks are not. Some ideas are: herons, lilies, koi, snails, frogs, cattails, osprey, alligators, lotus, leeches, mud, turtles, etc.  You can craft pond-themed items, such as a bag appliqued with a caddisfly larva, or items to decorate your partner's backyard pond, or anything else that matches up with the pond theme! You and your partner will decide how many items you want to craft.

Swappers must meet the above qualifications listed in RED. In addition to the usual requirements, I reserve the right to screen out people who have been chronic late senders in previous swaps (by this, I mean sending a week or more after the deadline) or who have had poor communication. If you have repeatedly sent late (or had poor communication) in previous swaps, and want to join, please include in your application a short note describing how you will be sure that you will send on time (or be sure to communicate) for this swap.

You and your partner will jointly decide how many items of what size (ie, 1 large, 1 small) to make for this swap. Please discuss in as much detail as needed the nature of these items, to be sure that you and your partner are truly in agreement about the relative sizes of items in terms of crafting time/materials cost/difficulty/etc. There will be TWO CHECKINS for the swap - the first a week after partners are assigned where you will report back how many items you are making; the second a week before the sendout deadline. Failure to reply to either of these checkins will result in a notation of poor communication in your feedback. Sending more than three days late will result in a notion of late send in your feedback.

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

More detailed questionnaire answers lead to a better swap experience!

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username

Your real name

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country using airmail or other fast shipping (not slow boat)?

Are there any ingredients (animal products, repurposed items) to which you object?
What are your favorite pond friends?
What are your least liked pond friends?
What is your favorite pond that you have visited?
What kinds of items would you like to receive?
Do you have any color preferences?
What kinds of crafts would you like to make for this swap?
Are there any periods during the crafting time when you will be out of communication?
Roughly how many items of what size would you like to craft ?

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 it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.
