(a lot of the explanation of IYP is taken from MissMermaidStikesBa ck - thank you!)

This is an everything Harry Potter swap, but also an Invite Your Partner swap.  In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner (to exchange Harry Potter themed crafts). It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a great gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together before you sign up. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me ((Bethiej78)) with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback. Signups will last two weeks, but may close early if there are tons of people, so sign up early!

You may only have one partner this round.   Because I have a feeling there will be many participants and I don't want to go there this time - sorry if anyone was hoping to have two!

**IF you currently have too many swaps, but KNOW you will have positive feedback by the time the two weeks are over, you may still sign up and I will hold a spot for you and your partner. It will be your responsibility to pm me when you are eligible (under the 5 swap limit), or you will be dropped from the swap the last day of signups.**

In this swap, the theme is HARRY POTTER!!  Yay!  As partners, you will decide what and how much to craft for one another.  If you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past - both are fine. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like.  Just make sure you agree with your partner ahead of time!  We don't want anyone feeling slighted.  Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

SOME RULES:
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. once you do send, you will have positive feedback again, BUT this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.  another idea is to at least send some of what you have made your partner by the send out date and if you want to send more later because she sent so much, shes so cool, you ran out of time, thats fine!  because you already sent!


THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!


ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

Just to review, Here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM Bethiej78 and each other with mailing information.
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide the organizer (Me!) with a DC number when you do.
5. Pm your partner and me when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless you PM us. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you. In this case, you still need to post in the gallery about what you received.
6. Lack of PMs to both organizers and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!

unfortunately, you need to have posted at least 15 times and been a member for 1 month before you can sign up for any swaps.  but maybe we'll catch you on the next one!  Undecided

you will probably be eligible by the time the deathly hallows swap rolls around!
