- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES


Details of swap:
It’s called a secret santa swap, but anyone can join no matter what holiday you celebrate.
This is a Secret Santa swap, which means you don’t know who is sending to you. This swap is in wishlist form which means anyone can claim you ro craft for. Because it’s the holidays, only BIG WISHES will be granted.
 
The minimum package to each person is LARGE.
What qualifies as a large item?
By time: 3 hours or more
By size: A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
By price: USD 30.00 or more


 Each person can be picked as many times possible during the claiming period. On Nov. 15th claiming will be locked so everyone has at least 1 month to craft their large package. No matter what date you claim, the sendout for everyone is Dec. 15th to make sure you have plenty of crafting time for a quality gift.
*Friends of Craftster may claim up to 3 people at a time. (to become a friend of craftster, go here
*non FOCs may claim up to 2 people at a time.
*first time swappers may claim 2 (or 3 if a FOC) at a time after their 1st package has been received.
*No one may be picked a again time until everyone has been picked.
If someone has been picked 3 times and hasn't even claimed once, i'll block them from being picked. everyone needs to claim at least one person. After that, it's up to the claimer if they want to pick someone who has been claimed 6 times, when there are people who have only been picked once.

What to post on your wishlist:
DO NOT POST YOUR LIST UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.
Write a mini bio including what country you are in, allergies, any aversions to animal products, favorite colors, and colors ou don't like.
You must have at least 5 large items on your list. You should also add links to your wists, etsy favorites, or amazon.com wishlist(s). You can make a “Top Wishes” list at the top.
 
How to claim:
Browse through everyone’s wishlists. Make sure the "who hasn't been picked" list is clear if you want to claim someone who has already been claimed. PM kitschkween (unless you are claiming kitschkween, then PM gwenvarr) with "Secret Santa-claim" as the subject and who you want to claim, and what for in the body. If approved, I will send you their questionnaire. Start crafting!
I will PM you if you are picked, but I won’t say by who or for what.

Sending and Receiving:
To keep your identity a secret until your present has been opened, you must give yourself a code name. The code I gave to the person(s) you claimed should be different than the code you give yourself. It doesn't even have to be a number. for instance, i could be "secret santa stalker." so my PM would look like this:

subject: secret santa- sent

kitschkween (secret santa stalker) to gwenyvarr (10107K)
dc#:99999999999999

and gwenyvarr PM would look like this:

subject: secret santa - received

from secret santa stalker
dc#:9999999999999999999 9999

RULES:
A delivery confirmation number is required for all domestic shipments. If you are shipping internationally, you must save your receipt.
You must PM me when after you have sent and received.
Please take a picture of the items you are sending in case your partner cannot. I want a beautiful gallery people!


If you want to participate, information to send to kitschkween and gwenyvarr (please put “Secret Santa Swap” as the subject):


QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Secret Santa Big Wish Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name and address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Have you read and understand all the rules and details?
Do you have a camera to take pictures of your presents?

I usually approve within the same day (within the same hour even), so please check your PMs before the end of your day and post your list. Failing to post your list in a timely matter will cause the swap to stall or force me to allow people to skip over your turn to be claimed.


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Looks like I'm first (besides our fearless leader that is!)

My name is Amber and I am in super hot and sunny New Mexico.  I don't have allergies...except earrings.  I like all colors, although my favorites are yellow and pink.  I like bright colors best.  I stay away from white items because I am a stay at home mommy of 3 kids.....so anything white doesn't stay that way for long!   

Here's my list:

1. Purse..I love purses....I need one with pockets inside and I just don't know how to sew that well! (tons are on my wists for examples)

2. Hair stuff...I have long hair and love to use hair bands, barrettes, clips...etc.

3. Pajamas....I would love some pj's that my hubby would like but would still be ok to wear around the kids...is that possible?  Cheesy

4. Jewelry...love jewelry..but I can't wear earrings..but I love necklaces, bracelets, rings...whatever (tons on my wists again!)

5. Hoodie...I love love love hoodies....I really want one with some japanese (aka tokidoki Cheesy) type print......would LOVE LOVE LOVE that! 

6. Shoes for my son. He's a year old and I really want to keep him in soft soled shoes, but don't know how to make them.  He needs some leather bottomed shoes.  I don't know how to tell what size, but he wears a size 4 right now in toddler shoes....he's a little guy.  Smiley 

7. Craft bag like this: http://www.wists.com/MnkyMama/c63f6cb1b0d8edcf4792ad34862070aa?offset=0

8. Cross Stitch picture like this: http://www.wists.com/MnkyMama/0be33314437ed7be851078bc6833f61a?offset=100
or
http://www.wists.com/MnkyMama/12c124bcaa3ae72ac89ccac93b3c6f26?offset=100

9. Record bowl or mail holder like this: http://www.wists.com/MnkyMama/21380e9f60386234bfa3a465081ca44d?offset=0
  - OR -
record notebook like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160934.msg1623605#msg1623605

Really most anything from my wists:

Hi I'm Amanda.  I'm 21 years old, and I live in the mountains of North Carolina.    I have minor seasonal allergies, but nothing that should effect crafting.   I have two dogs, so animals are great by me.  I don't smoke and i dont enjoy the smell so if you smoke please febreeze!  My favorite colors are dark rich colors like reds and burgandy.  i love black and red together!!  I like most colors except orange, brown, and green  Tongue

Onto my wishlist!

1) a painting or other kind of art that i can hang on my walls
2) a messanger bag that i can store my work stuff and books in
3) a blanket to take with me camping
4) a scarf and matching winter hat
5) a long tank top in a basic color
6) a swap journal
7) a zipper hoodie with stars or fairies on it  #2
Cool A black and red corset **** #1 wish!!!
9) decorated organizational stuff for my craft supplies

10) page a day calender in either or (possibly and!) fairies/stars.... maybe with lil quotes on it?  I would love that  Wink
11)  A premade scrapbook that i can use for pictures of me and my best friend
12)any lap sized blankets of any kind ( crochet, knitted, sewn, quilted)
