Details of swap:
It's time to jumpstart 2008, and a new year means new resolutions! Ever make your list out only to fall short and give up on those goals after only a few months (or weeks)? Well, why not help each other out? Each person will list 3 - 5 (or more, if you and your partner are ambitions!) resolutions they want to keep for the new year. Partners will choose equal number of resolutions and craft packages to help each other keep those resolutions!
For example, my resolutions might be
1. lose weight
2. write more penpal letters
3. use more of my craft supply stash up
4. be more organized
5. do more of my oil painting
My partner might send me a weight/food journal or recipe/excercise booklet, a stationary set, a handmade craft book or zine or a list of favorite projects online, a day planner or a stylish box or something to store things in, and a paint brush holder or oil paints or something. These are just some of the more obvious ideas, but anything is possible. Use your imagination. The idea is to create something that will motivate and inspire your partner to fulfill their goals for the new year!
Package Requirements: I'm letting partners decide how many resolutions they want to craft for. Some people have mentioned not having that many resolutions, and that is find. If you each only want to craft for one resolution, that's no problem, but try to make a nice package around that resolution: One large, one medium, and one or two smaller items. If you want to choose two or more resolutions each, try to make a large or medium item for each resolution, but discuss this with your parnter to make sure things are fair. After partners are asigned, each set of partners will need to let me know how many resolutions/items they have decided on.
Also, store bought items are ok since this swap may make crafting for your partner challenging depending on their goals, but try to keep the bulk of your swap package crafted.
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
