Swap name: Pimp My Craftster Name R2 (with a twist)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: mini
Sign-up date range: August 5 - 20, 2007
Date to send item by: September 10, 2007
                             
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
All ages allowed? Yes.
Under 16 (well everyone really! Wink), be sure you get permission & assistance where required, ie transport, financial, etc. to meet your deadlines.

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


Details of swap:

Are you obsessed with a particular theme so much so that you made it your Craftster name?
This is your chance to do a little stalking, and personalize and craft items for your partner based on their Craftster user name! This swap is about crafting the theme/meaning of your partners Craftster name & not the name itself. So, instead of putting "Mini" on a sweatshirt, you will knit me a mini sweater (or send me a Mini Cooper!), instead of putting "Octipii" on some stationary, you will draw some octopuses & put them on the stationary... Get it? umm.... I should say, does that make sense? ...

We will be crafting one large, one medium and one small item. Or two medium and two small items. Other combinations discuss with your partners.

Additional Rules:

You MUST get a DC Number in the US. Outside of the us you MUST send me your receipt (photo or scan). 

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.

I will be giving feedback comments in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

If you don't have access to a digital camera, let your partner know early on so they can be sure to take a picture before they send. It's so sad to craft something and not have a record of it.

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.), please let me and your partner know ASAP. Avoid negative feedback by keeping in good communication and avoid having your partner send to you when you do not intend to finish the swap!!

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: Pimp your Craftster Username
Craftster username:

Your full real name:

I love this swap...as in, I kind of changed my username with this swap in mind.  Too bad now I'm very shy of the one month time limit.  Plus, I'm leaving for my first year of college on the 18th, and with being away from home for the first time, I'm not sure I'd be able to meet the deadline.  Sad
Well, hopefully there will be another round of this swap soon because I really love this idea.

Oh... that's just plain bad timing... Sad
Especially that you got a cool new name.... Sad
If it doesn't work out for you then we will have another round just for you!!! Smiley

Cute idea for a swap mini! However, I doubt anyone would have it easy trying to come up with Banga crafts. Unless they send me a wooden mallet.  Tongue

Aw man, I wish I could do this. My parents would probably get a kick out of it.

I will definitely be stalking the gallery.

Humm... Well, what does it mean? I can see things with cool retro "bang" flags or guns on them.... Cowboys? Cops? Gang banga stuff?

I am obsessed with my username. I totally want to sign up for this, but I totally promised myself no more swaps for a while! Hmm... maybe I'll try to squeeze this one in too.
