Swap name: An Xmas ornament in a Week
Craftster member who is organizing this swap;
preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'sundayafternoonhousewife')
Sign-up date range: November 12-November 19 at noon
Date to send item by: November 27th

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

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO, but will pair people of same countries together so packages arrive quickly.
If so, which country?

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, under 18 check with your parents please.

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 (this is the 3rd, and the other 2 send this week)
- 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 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:

Ok, this swap is a mini swap, and short swap, a small swap, and an easy swap! What we will do is craft a minimum of 1 Christmas tree ornament for a partner. If you want to make more than one, you can discuss it with your partner, but the swap is just for one tree ornament. The ornament should fall in the small to medium category, so from 1-3 hours of craft time range. The ornament can be made of any medium: knit, crochet, clay, paper mache, glass, the possibilies are limitless!

Here is the one "catch" for this swap: the crafting time will fall over Thanksgiving weekend for us in the USA, so don't sign up if you are going to be super busy with 50 guests for dinner and a weekend of waiting in line for hours for "deals".  This swap is designed for those who might be spending an extened period of time in the car, or aren't going anywhere, ect. Anyone is welcome, but I don't want this to be high stress for you, so don't sign up if it is going to make you stressed!
Partners will be posted on Next Monday afternoon, and you will have one week to make one ornament and you will ship by the end of the day Tuesday Nov. 27th.


So, if you want to participate, here is the information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: An Xmas Ornament in a Week Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?:
Do you want traditional (i.e., santa, angels, wreaths, etc) or non-traditional ornaments (i.e., anything else)?
Do you prefer/want religious symbols or more along the lines or santa and the reindeer?
What colors will adorn your Christmas tree or what are your favorite colors, patterns, ect?
What crafts can you do?
What craft might you like to recieve?
Do you think you will likely craft more than one ornament (or, in other words, do you tend to spoil your partners)?
Is there anything specific you would like your partner to know or the organizer to know?
Do you solemly swear not to let this swap stress you out, even though it falls over Thanksgiving, and even though you might have 5 dozen cookies to bake, or 12 pies to bake?


PLEASE REMEMBER TO GET A DC number when you send, or if you are sending out of your country, keep your receipt and be prepared to take a picture of it to prove you sent to your partner.

Ahh I know what you mean! I want to do an ornament swap so bad - I was upset I missed the first one! But I'm waiting for my partner to receive in my first swap - Send outs were a week ago and I'm antsy for my feedback. I want to start crafting and this swap looks awesome!
