SIGN UPS are CLOSED, partners announced on 7/25. 

Take a moment to empty out those crafty closets.  Think of this as a End of Summer Crafty Supply blowout!!!!!

Swap name: Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 5 (aka: The End of Summer Fill a Box Swap)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Oops Creations
Sign-up date range: SIGN-UPS are 7/16 - 7/24    (Partners announced 7/25)
Date to send item by: 8/3


Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES.  This is a Fill a "US Postal Service Flat Rate Box" Swap so unfortunately it is limited to individuals in the U.S.  Sorry.

All ages allowed

As a reminder each participant must meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month
- Has posted at least 15 times
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps
- Does not have any negative feedback

Details of swap:

Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 5 : The End of Summer Blowout Fill a Box Swap

Its that time of the year again, clean out those overflowing baskets, boxes and craft closets.  End the Summer with fresh supplies and fresh ideas.

You'll fill a FLAT-RATE US Postal Service box with as much as you can jam in and send it to your partner (Don't forget the Delivery Confirmation). 

Gently Used supplies are fine, if not encouraged-- take this opportuntity to do a little SPRING CLEANING, the result is a clean(er) craft closet and some fresh ideas/supplies for crafting. Because of the special type of box (only $8.95 plus delivery confirmation) this is limited to US participants only. sorry

In previous rounds I have allowed people to send a SECOND BOX.  Please indicate if you would like to send a second box.  You will be paired up with another person and you will also recieve a second box.  YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED to send a Second Box to participate in this swap.   Remember-- you can pick up your FREE flat rate box at your local POST OFFICE (in two different size-- flat rectangle or square --they are about equal in size, flat fits  fabric/paper supplies better).  Be Sure is says "FLAT Rate Box" on it in Red/

SIGN-UPS 7/16 - 7/24  , Send By Aug 3
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 5 (aka The End of Summer Fill a Box Swap)

Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:

1) what type of crafts do you do?
2) what type of supplies would you plan on including in the pkg?
3) any unusual supplies you plan on including?
4) any supplies you would like to recieve?
5) WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEND (and therefore recieve) a SECOND BOX of Supplies?

<--- These Quick Questions make sure a people are paired with people whose extra craft supplies they are likely to use. This is just a guide--just because you want a soldering iron doesn't mean someone out there is going to be giving it away-- this is just to make sure the avid knitters don't recieve stacks of paper for ATC, but yarn instead.


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.

7/25 PARTNERS POSTED--- look for a PM with address information.

Remember -- I've paired you up based on share interests or if that person wanted something that you were offering (or vise versa)

Just because your partner (for examples) wants only handspuns soy silk yarn in purple doesn't mean you have to scramble to find that.  Instead try to find common interests-- post stalk or PM them directly if you need more guidance.  And sometimes the best thing to recieve is something thats a useful suprise.

Good luck and happy swapping.  PM me if you don't show this swap in progress on your feedback page or of there is something else that comes up.

FEEDBACK will be updated when three conditions are met
1) you send
2) you partner recieves
3) you recieve

PM me if you need to fastrack your feedback.

Too bad it is restricted to US people, this should be kind of cool swap!

Yeah--- sorry about the US restriction,  the US Postal Service doesn't offer a International Flat Rate Box.
Thanks for thinking of us though.

Actually, there is a flat rate fee for international, but it's like $30.
