Swap name: 2008 Handmade Calendar Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: neverseenblue
Sign-up date range: 10/6/07-10/19/07
Date to send item by: 11/26/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

All ages allowed? yes, if under 18 please make sure to get permission from parents and have reliable transportation to the post office

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: n/a

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: *UPDATED*
Since we did not have 24 people sign up we will be splitting into two groups of ten. Everyone in the group is still assigned a month, which will then leave 2 months unassigned - to compensate for that everyone will do 1 bonus page for each of those months - in the end you will still end up doing a total of 12 pages and each person will have collected 12 pages, one for each month, to create their very special, one-of-a-kind calendar to enjoy for all of 2008.


The months that are not assigned are July & August. So if I use myself as an example I am assigned the month of November - I will craft 10 pages for November (1 to keep for my calendar, 9 to send to my other partners). I will then also craft 1 additional page for July & 1 additional page for August to be sent - for a total of 12 crafted pages.


All calendar pages should measure 10"x10".

Since the envelopes will probably be too thin to get a DC#, DC#s will not be required for this swap. When you send your pages though you MUST get a receipt from the post office to prove that you have sent.

Please PM me every time you send and receive a calendar page. It will make my life a whole lot easier!! Smiley

If there is a particular month you want you can request it - I'll try to honor all request the best I can. I'll update the questionnaire to reflect this.

ok, just one more question and I am not sure how to describe what I am thinking but here goes:
do we do the entire 10x10 page like you would see on a calendar with the top part being something decorative and the bottom half being the days and numbers (so really the top is 5x5 and the bottom is 5x5) OR is each half 10x10?
does that make sense?

The entire finished page should be 10"x10" - within that 10"x10" space you can do whatever you want.  Smiley

Hooraaaay for signups! I'm going to hold back and hope that the swap fills up really quickly...But in reality I'll probably be signing up soon.  Roll Eyes I just got inspiration, so I'm going to make some pages right now...

I have a question I couldn't figure out in the discussion: do we craft 12 different pages for the month we get, or will they look the same, so that we all end up with the same calendar?

I think it's up to you how different you want each of the pages for your month to be. You could do something completely different for each partner based on their tastes or you could have a fairly similar design/style for each partner but maybe it varies in color for each partner's tastes.
