Details of swap:

Borrowed from Madmatigan79's Baby/Kid Stuff Swaps

Because there are more than a few crafty parents/grandparents/aunties/etc out there, this is a swap of items for the "little people" (read: children 12 years and younger) in our lives. Each person will craft at least three medium (time-wise) items (or equivalent, i.e. one large & one small, several small, etc) for their partner's child (or children). If you want to do more (or less), that is fine, as long as you have cleared it with your partner.

Here is the difference.  This is for the parents who prefer to dress their kids as dark and as goth as they are.  Black onesies, snarky remark shirts,  heavy metal music, and chains encouraged.  If your child like mine will only sleep to System of A Down or Metallica and carries a "dead" stuffed animal then this is the swap for you.

Consider the interests and age(s) of your partner's child(ren) and make things that will be appropriate.

The Rules: Also borrowed from Madmatigan79

You've probably heard them all before but here goes...

You MUST get a DC Number.

Please acknowledge when you receive your package by sending a pm to both me and your partner AND by posting in the Swap Gallery (will post link to thread once swap is underway). Failure to communicate will be noted in your swap feedback.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO POST IN THIS THREAD OR ACTIVATE THE 'NEW POST' NOTIFICATION FEATURE. This will ensure that no one gets left out of the loop as you will know when I or anyone else leaves a new message on this thread.

PLEASE DON'T SEND OUT EARLY without checking with me first! I will send out a pm to check in with everybody prior to the mail out date. When people reply to the check in pm, I will post a list on this thread. When your partner has replied, you may go ahead and send their package. Your partner will not send out until I have heard from you! (this method seems to have worked for other organizers in keeping things on track and weeding out flakers)

If, for whatever reason, you are going to have to send late (or worse, not send at all - we all understand that life can get in the way of crafting, especially when you have kids!), please let me and your partner know ASAP. Avoid negative feedback by keeping in good communication!!

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 you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
How many children (12 years and under) do you have (if not their parent, what is your relationship to them)?
Do they have any allergies (ie. nuts, smoke, pets, etc) or special needs that your partner should be aware of?
What are their names/ages/genders?
...clothing sizes?
...interests (ie. animals, princesses, sports, etc)?
...favorite activities (ie. drawing, singing, video games, etc)?
...favorite colors?
...favorite story/tv show/character/etc?
...other likes?
...dislikes?
Any other pertinent information?
Anything in particular you think your child(ren) would need/could use/would love?
What are your craft skills?
What age range would you prefer to craft for (if it doesn't matter, just put "any")?
Do you have access to a digital camera/a way to post pictures?

Due to the excitement of everyone to get this going and the very small group it seems we have.  I will close signups on August the fifth and sendouts will be September the fifth.  Partners will be assigned August 6th.

If there's a round two of this I'm definietly in - but I'm still wrapping up my first swap and wouldn't have been able to sign up for this one even if I had seen it in time!  I'm excited to see the gallery for this one.  Smiley

I am feeling like a fool! I came to Omaha to do a craft show starting last Thursday and going until yesterday (9:00 AM to midnight!) and guess what happened? Besides my not realizing that the show would end on September 4 and the items ship on Sept 5....

I got so busy at the show I didnt' have time to work on my project!

And now it is the 5th and I have to drive all day to get home, won't make it to the post office in time, and besides don't have my project ready to send. I feel so bad I could die!

Dragonslair - I have the little items ready to go, and think your daughter will love them, but the big project I started is still needing to have the pieces put together and get finished off. It should be done tomorrow or by the latest Friday, and then it will need washed and dried, but I am hoping to get it in the mail Friday - it depends on if my insurance company will let me get a loaner car while mine is in the shop since while I was here my stepson borrowed my car and got the tail light busted out!

We use Era liquid laundry soap - will that work?

I am so sorry I am not ready today!!!!

please don't hate me Cry

Ronda

Monday AM didn't happen because the darn shop took forever to get my car inspected and get me out of there and by the time I left and picked up the loaner car I had to drive Kari to Iowa City for Dental work (76 miles one way) and then she was sick as a dog all the rest of that day and all day yesterday and I had to stay with her. So it went out this afternoon and I sent it priority so it should be there yet this week (had to re-box it for priority so added something extra for the delays).

got the DC and will send that to dragonslair.
