What constitutes a large, medium or small item:  Think of a timeline, a large item is time consuming like a set of 4 placemats or a super cool apron, medium item could be a pair of oven mitts  - smalls could be potholders, hotpads, coasters or dishcloths things that aren't quite so time and cost intensive.  Most of all, communicate with your partner!

Other swap requirements

1) Good communication!  Swappers must post at least 2 times to board during crafting time...just so we know you are around and thinking about this swap!!

2)  Post one inspirational picture of your kitchen or items from your kitchen so we can all be inspired by your style!!

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

 
ATTENTION:
I WILL NOT TOLERATE NON COMMUNICATION OR FLAKING! YOU MUST PROVIDE A DC NUMBER WHEN YOU MAIL OUT IF WITHIN THE US.  IF NOT, THE CUSTOMS NUMBER OFF THE RECEIPT OR PROOF OF MAIL OUT!  COMMUNICATE! 

Feedback will be given in the following manner:
1) Positive: Great Swapper, Great communications: there were no problems whatsoever.
2) Positive: Sent Early: obvious
3) Positive: Sent Late with Great Communication: You told me you were going to send late before or on the date of send outs. (i didnt have to hunt you down)
4) Positive: Sent Late with Bad Communication: You didnt tell me you were going to send late until the day after the send outs or after that or i had to hunt you down.
5) Positive: No DCN or Proof of mailout: obvious
6) Positive: Great swapper, problems with communications: you did great swapping but didnt PM me when you mailed out and/or recieved
7) Flaked - gets negative feedback.

Rules:
1. Craftsters MUST communicate with each other - at least in the beginning to acknowledge their partners, and at the end to reassure them that their packages are on the way. If you think you're having trouble, or are unsure, PM ME!!!

2. Also I need you to PM me when you send your pacakge and when you receive your yours.

3. If you're going to be late in sending, or are having any trouble at all, please let me know.. .. .be nice to your fellow Craftster, and keep them aware of your situation.  We all have lives outside of our craftroom and are pretty forgiving!

4. If you've never swapped before, please read the Swaps Info Guide.

5.  Please post up pics in the gallery take pics before you send out if you can just in case a.)  package lost in transit and b.) your swap partner doesnt have access to a camera. Please let me know ahead of time if you do not have access to a camera.  I will try to not put two cameraless people together we all LOVE seeing what everyone gets!

6.  Thoughts on shipping - I am a stickler for proof of sending. If you are in the US - you MUST get a dc #.  If you are in the US and are sending outside the country - you MUST send me your customs number.  If you are outside the US - and you get a customs number send it along but please keep your receipt!!  You don't need to scan and send it to me unless it goes MIA which I really hope won't happen during our swap!

OH WOW!!!  LOVE MAKING KITCHEN STUFF:))  I really want to join this one, but waiting a little bit.  Want to make sure my Fibro quits acting up so bad so I'll feel more like crafting (mainly crocheting:))

Post a picture whenever you feel like it!!  It doesn't neccessarily need to be a pic of you whole kitchen, maybe just something from your kitchen  ( your favorite bowl, tool, or potholder etc) that will exemplify your style or theme for your kitchen. 

 Lord knows my kitchen is never that tidy!!  I am constantly tripping over magnets my toddler has thrown all over the floor in front of the fridge, or rolling my ankle on the tupperware he's strewn out of "his" cupboard!!

ok here goes....
I have a big kitchen - after many years of tiny ones we got a smallish detached house a few years ago and I got to design the extension where I could specify the kitchen from scratch. It is never normally this tidy but I used it as an excuse to do a spring clean today..

you can see the gap above the cooker where the clock was - it stopped working last week and I'd love a retro 50s clock to take it's place! Also my teapot that needs a cosy.

My lovely Rangemaster cooker and my kitchenaid. My oven gloves are looking very tatty so would love some new ones!

The oak dresser in the corner containing the nice china - I have a nearly full set of cornish blue polka dot from the 1950s - from my MIL.
Its a very light room as it has full length glass doors to the garden and the ones you see in the first picture. The only corner not photographed is the one with the scruffy sofa and radiator - plus assorted toys and 6 year old still in his pjs at 4pm!
