Craftster member who is organizing this swap: SilverWing
Sign-up date range: December 26th to January 5th

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

- 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: YES

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:

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.  Smiley



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of 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?
List 3-5 resolutions (discuss this with your partner)
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Would you prefer a partner with similar goals, or different ones?  I can't promise this will work out, but I'll try:

How many resolutions would you like to craft for at the MOST:
Items you would like to recieve:
Items you would not like to recieve (like things you already have to help you with your goal):
Colors/symbols/themes you like:
Colors/symbols/themes you don't like:
Crafts you can do:
Crafts you would like to recieve:
What things inspire/motivate you:
Anything else you want your partner to know:

Also, this is my first time organizing, so if you see somthing above that you think should be revised or changed or if you have any suggestions, please just let me know!  Thanks so much!


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.

Dang! There are several swaps that I want to join right now, one that I want to organize, and an increasingly busy schedule that makes doing them a lot harder!! Let me think on this one for a while. I do think it's a really good idea!

^^  Sounds great!  I'm hoping we get quite a few people.  If several people need me to extend the sign up/send out dates, that's not a problem with me at all, by the way.  ^^
