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!
