Swap name: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Round 3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: bethiej78
Sign-up date range: 7/9/07 – 7/18/07
Date to send item by: 8/13/07
Limited to a certain number of people? : no
Restricted to people who all live in the same country?   NO
All ages allowed or 18+? All ages

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


Additional Rules (borrowed from various organizers):
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 #: Didn't comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages w/i 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 please thank your partner.  You will not receive feedback until after I know your partner has received.
5.  Part of the fun in swapping is seeing everyone’s 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.   
     Please post pics!!!

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.   Keep in mind though that this is only within reason.  Two or three days because of a broken sewing needle or having to redo something is fine.  A week because you took on too many swaps and don't have time to finish on time is NOT fine.


Details of swap:

This swap is to celebrate the awesomeness that was/is Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and for some of us, how excited we are that the series is now continuing on in comic book form).  If you and your partner want to, you can also craft for Angel, but I would like this to primarily be a Buffy swap.  I will add a question to the questionnaire to indicate favor for crafting for buffy, angel, or both, and will try to pair people up accordingly.

All swappers will make (and receive) 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small crafted item (or something equal to that... 1 large = 2 medium = 4 small; 1 medium = 2 small).   If you and your partner decide on a smaller or larger amount, that is fine as long as you both agree ahead of time.  Same for crafted vs. store-bought items.  Sendouts will be Monday, August 13th.  This allows for 3 full weeks of crafting time.

For some inspiration from past Buffy swaps:

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

aww, sorry the dates are wrong for you!  it will still be lovely to have you pop by with quotes though!  and i love your cartoon!


we'd love to have you whenever you're ready misswendiki, and you miss craftycat once you finish up one of your swaps!  maybe you'll get your geek pride feedback before signups are over!  i can always extend by a day or two if it turns out it would help a bunch of people.  not like a week or something but a few days for sure!

I'm not worried.  My partner for the Firefly swap let me know today that she received, so I should have my feedback soon enough.

I'd love to join in, but I'm not sure I'd have the time. I'll see how I get on with my crafting this week.
