Swap name: FOUND Swap - Lovers of the Lost and Forsaken
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Scatter Kincaid
Sign-up date range: February 11 - February 20, 2008
Date to send item by: March 31, 2008

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

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? Nope

All ages allowed? Or 18+? If under 18 please contact Scatter Kincaid.

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: NO
- 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: NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: NO

Details of swap:

This swap is for anyone that finds joy in those little lost notes found on sidewalks and old library books.  You can learn more about the FOUND phenom here.

What I'm asking participants to do is to create something with things they have found.  Use photos, notes, mittens or anything else that you have stumbled upon.  Please keep in mind that some pretty nasty things can be found on the curb, so please don't send your partner anything you think could be offensive.  If you have questions please contact your partner or the swap moderator.

Each participant would be expected to make 7 points worth of items.  Large items are worth 3 point, medium items are worth 2 and small items are worth 1 point.  This allows people a little more room to be creative.  Please keep in mind an item doesn't have to be physically 'large' to be considered a BIG project.  What I'm considering is the time and energy put into a project.



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

This sounds fun, but I don't think I'll have enough time to devote to "7 points"...I shall have to ponder this.............

I've only ever found a photo of a woman pretending to dance with a bear.

But this swap got me thinking about the movie Amelie.
1 - the bloke finds un-wnated photos under the photo booths in the mall and sticks them back together in his book
2- when Amelie finds the young boys treasured items box bhind a broken tile in her bathroom.

I will probably be watching this swap Smiley

I didn't even think of the Amelie connection.  That's my favourite movie.

Seven points is a bit of a scary undertaking, but just think how much more fun it will be to walk around on your daily business when you're looking for treasure...   Wink

Yay, I'm in!!   Cheesy  I'm always at my school after closing for various practices, and I find so many things in the hallways.

I hope people aren't too intimidated by the 7 points.  I wouldn't expect someone to knit an afghan with tape from old cassettes they found...

I came to the conclusion of 7 points because I figure during a swap I make one big, one medium and a couple small items.  A bookmark would be an example of a small item.

If anyone has any questions about sizes or anything swap related please feel free to ask!  I really want people to sign up for and enjoy this one!  It has tonnes of possibilities.

Mmmm, it's only my second swap and I have a very active little baby so I was a bit scared by the 7 points, but hopefully inspiration will strike and it'll be ok!  Cheesy

(I love these Valentine's day smileys!!  Grin Shocked  Roll Eyes !!)

A question: can we post our finds before we start crafting? I think it could be fun to share and maybe get the discussion going, or would it be better to keep all of it as a surprise for the end?

Absolutely!  I think that's a great idea.
