I figured since we all have different things that we like to make/are better at making, it would be fun not to limit ourselves to one theme.

Inspired from Faeriesmak's Mystery Packs, it's pretty self-explanatory, we swap packages of say..10-15 things?
Now before you exclaim "Is she crazy?", i don't mean 15 full fledged crafts. Small things, odd stuff from crafts gone bad, things you have that you don't know what to do with, etc. And if you need some fillers you can even send supplies, unaltered store-bought things/ found objects you bought but haven't gotten inspired to make anything out of.

requirements:
_min ONE/max THREE "big" crafts
_min THREE/max TEN small crafts
_min ZERO/ max EIGHT oddments

anyone interested?

any questions/comments/suggestions?

send date?

looking for someone to knit/crochet something for me, and someone to make some jewelry for me. I can offer mostly paper related crafts, but I'm sure I'll find something to your liking. PM me!

That seems like a lot of variance...what if one partner did the max, and the other did the minimum?

Also, could we have a requirement of a wist, so that the partners could gauge each other's taste a bit?  I'm up for nearly anything, weirder the better, but I know there are a lot of craftsters that are much more conservative.  Plus, if i'm going to work on a bunch of stuff, I'd like to know that my partner has a chance of liking what I make...

you don't really have to go by any guidelines, it's really about making the other person happy so I would suggest getting to know them better.
