Details of swap:
This swap is a use what you have kind of swap, while keeping the environment in mind. If you do buy something, buy it thrifted if possible. Tiny steps to becoming greener & remembering the three R's (reduce, reuse, recycle) will help our pretty little planet! Smiley Going green means using those three R's so use your stashes and scraps up, use those jars under your sink that you save when cooking, all those plastic bags stuffed into one plastic bag...use them! And of course have fun while doing it!!

What we'll be sending!

One large crafted object & One medium crafted object  & One small crafted object

Size guidelines:

Large=3 or more hours of work
Medium=1.5-3 hours
Small=less than 1.5 hours

Other Requirements asked for this swap:
- Post on this thread once a week
- Message your partner once a week, it's good fun to keep in contact
- A DC# once you send your package, nothing is sadder then a lost package

Here's some ideas that I found on a previous swap like this one! -->  grocery bags, lunch bags, napkins, tea towels, heat packs, water bottle cozies, recycled paper notecards, bags made from old clothing, wallets made from old magazines, things made from:  tin cans, bottle caps/can tabs, plastic bags, old greeting cards, recycled yarn, felted sweaters..you get the idea right? Wink

I would totally sign up for this if the crafting time were extended.
I save everything and my bf is really getting sick of it so I need to use some of my stash.

Handmade and vintage goodness!

Aw... I don't think I'll be able to join! The timing is too rough for me..

Would a week or two added to the crafting time be sufficient? Smiley

1 week would be good.  2 weeks would be even better.

This sounds good...has the crafting time been extended?  3 weeks is OK, I think, 4 would be better.  I have a few idea floating around in my head - eeep. To sign up or not.  I think I'll think about it for now.
