Details of swap:
Okay...this idea was brought up by Lydia Tthe Strange, who, by the way, posted a brilliant tutorial for crochet slippers!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0  Now, your slippers DO NOT HAVE TO BE CROCHETED!  They may be created in whatever way YOU can craft a pair of slippers!  You will be required to craft one pair of wearable slippers, and two, small items that would, hopefully, be related to slippers in some way.  One of the small items may be store bought.  If you want to send more to your partner, please make sure to communicate with them so that packages are of equal size and effort. 

That being said, and in the interest of my sanity, we will be keeping this swap small.  The short sign-up time is because I HATE having to wait! Smiley If you have any negative comments in your profile, you are welcome to apply for the swap, but I also reserve the right to ask about the comments as well as deny you a place in the swap.  I have no patience for flakers.  If you find, near the end that you may need more time, please be sure to communicate with me and your partner.  You dont need to become best friends with your partner, but you ARE required to communicate with them #1 When you receive their information, #2 When you send, and #3 When you receive!  Frankly, I dont care if you hate what they sent, please be kind, thank your partner, and tell them you love it!  I also require that you post pictures of what you have received within a reasonable amount of time unless you have a great excuse.  If there are any issues at any time during this swap, please contact me via PM.  Newbies are very welcome!

And finally, when you contact me, I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.  I work 5 days a week, run after work, have a husband, and a child, and I cannot access Craftster from work, so....please be patient!  If you havent heard from me within 24 hours, please send another PM as sometimes, they get lost in cyberspace!

Hello everyone!  So far, everyone should have "in-progress" feedback.  I'd love for this to be a low-pressure, relaxed, fun swap.  That's why I'm only requiring 2 small things in addition to the slippers.  Just a few more days before I close sign-ups, and then, we can get crafting.  Woohoo!

I've made a ton of those slippers myself!  I'm excited to start on a pair.  It's a good thing for me to work on at work--I can be sneaky!  lol

DisneyFan: you are so naughty!  I have to say tho, me too!  No one cares as long as I get my work done.  I made my friend a pair a few weeks ago for when she went into labor, and when she had the baby last week she got major compliments from the hospital staff!

I work in a call center (I'm the OnStar lady) and we're not allowed to have pens or markers for security reasons so everyone there ethier reads or crochets. I actually learned how to crochet from my fellow employees.

Which brings me to my next question, I see that there are 10 people in the swap right now which means 5 pairs of partners right? Well I have to work early on saturday so I was kind of hoping to start my slippers then. My question is if its at all possible can we be paired up before the 26th? Like us 10 be paired up and then any additional people can be paired up as they join? I've never been in a swap before and Im not sure how this works so please excuse me if this is a stupid question.
