There have been a lot of lovely crafts inspired by fruits and vegetables on the boards lately, and I think we should swap some of them! They are so kitchy and cool, and there's a lot of things you can make!

Swap name: 5 a day fruits and veggies swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: EmilyFlew
Sign-up date range: 1/12/05-1/26/05
Date to send item by: 2/23/05

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Not right now, but if there's a crazy overwhelming response, I might have to limit.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? As long as we can get enough people willing to ship to you!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages! Everybody loves produce!

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: Boo suspended traders! None allowed here.

make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES

Yeah, sorry, it's 5 items to one person. So everyone will be sending to one person, and receiving from one person.

I put this partly cause I thought it was a cute continuation of the theme and partly cause I'm swap-tarded and can never figure out how much to put in a package. This way, everyone's making and sending about the same amount of stuff, so no one feels like they received too much or too little.

Hmm, that would work for me, actually. I'm kinda paranoid that there'll be the ONE person I'd offend the most with something I made... the "look, I'm kinda clever! ... wait, why are you throwing rocks at me?" thing. *shrug* I'm ready for it, I'm game!

EmilyFlew.....swap-tarded?? (that's a classic!! lol) I was thinking that of myself today as I was boxing up my first swap stuff to send out!! I think it's a good idea that you put a number on what to send, I have read that some of the craftster members are pretty prolific swappers...which is so cool, but maybe for newbies ( like myself) a number of items will help get over the fear of the first swap!! ( I tend to put a little extra into the box myself!!) Grin

i've been in a bunch of swaps, and i think i always over-pack.  I'd be sad if i sent someone one thing and they sent me like 4. More is more in my opinion..lol

There must be something psychological about creative people and the generous mentality.  I've noticed in the swaps that people tend to send more than one thing for the exact reason that krazigal72 said  Cheesy  Part of it, I think, is that we just get too many ideas (or I know that happens to me) but I do think a large part of it is just that we don't want to seem lame if someone else sends 3-4 things.  And seriously, if someone sent me only one thing in a swap, I would NOT think it was lame!  But we all seem like the types who like to put in a litle something extra, because it's fun to surprise people and (hopefully) delight them.  It puts a bit of pressure on the swaps, I guess, though.  I'd love to do this swap, but I'm debating whether I have time, since I'm already doing Let Me Make Your Craft, and Yearlong Secret Crafter, and Seven Days a Week, and some others.

If only my JOB didn't take away so much of my CRAFTING time!!

(Oh, and btw, I do the same thing with the name, if I meet someone named Melinda, I have to make sure they know I'm Melinda too, but the funny thing about rarely meeting anyone with my name is that I kinda get like, "Hey man, back off, *I'M* Melinda!")
