Details of swap:
This is a swap for collectors!  Whether you collect elephants or strawberries, or microbes, or existential philosophy, this is the place for you!  Your partner(s) will give you a list of things they collect...at least three things...and you will craft up something to add to the collection.  Now, please keep in mind...you are only required to craft one item (if you want to swap more, discuss and arrange with partner!), and this item will probably be displayed somewhere in your partner's home, or used/worn a lot by your partner, so please (!) make an item to the very best of your ability.  We've got a very long crafting time, so everyone should be able to make and recieve a really great collectable!
I'm making a pretty in depth questionaire for this swap, so please utilize it!  You don't have to get little figurines that sit on shelves!  if there are certain items that you would really like for your collection, put it in the questionaire, and I'll do my best to match up wants/talents!   I'm also putting in the option to have more than one partner for this swap.

Yay! I will have to wait a little bit to get some feedback, but I have a couple swaps wrapping up so shouldn't be too long.

Yeah, I know a lot of people are in that same boat, so I made the sign-ups pretty long!  I hope everyone can make it!

I am dying to do a swap, but I found one I really wanted the day after signups closed and I have been looking for the perfect swap to start with... I was considering making this my first swap, but all my collections are really hard to craft for...  Undecided

Shot glasses, unique lighters, knives/daggers/swords, glass bottles.... not really anything you can make with average craft skills....

By the way, I'm not a salor or pirate or anything, I just like the weirdest of things LOL.

Superhooker, I just found out we're basically neighbors. Grin Nifty.

Hmmm.  I have to think about this one.  I am almost finished with the swaps I am working on, I do need another.  Okay, I don't need another, but if I am not crafting for a swap I sorta feel empty inside.
