Details of swap:
...

This is a swap to give college students a chance to pamper and be pampered during finals.  Matches will be set up so that you receive your package during or as close to finals week as possible, but are finished crafting before your own finals.  We will be sending 2 mediums and 5 smalls, which gives a chance to do 1 large if you would like, and also the chance to send lots of small things such as tea or chocolate covered espresso beans (two of my favorite finals necessities) Hopefully everyone will get lots of time to craft, but if there are people who have their finals too soon after April 10th to have enough time to do all that just make a note of that in your questionnaire and we will either lower the crafting amount or partner you up before the end of sign-ups.
 

NECESSITIES: You must communicate frequently both with the group via the forum, and with your partner via private message.  If your partner doesn't communicate with you please inform one of the organizers so that we know and can take care of it.  Bad communication will merit a bad communication comment in your feedback.

You must be willing to post pictures of what you receive (if you own a camera), although considering the fact that this is based around finals, some lag time for finals to finish is acceptable.  Not posting in the gallery after you receive will also be noted in the comments in your feedback. 

Also, please remember this is a crafting swap. Please remember to be courteous with your crafting and try not to bail out on the crafting time. We do understand that this swap is before finals and is an add to the workload, but we don't want any disappointment. So please, if you do not think you will have ample time, do not sign up and remember craft unto others as you would have crafted to you!  Wink

You must inform "elmpixie" when you have sent and received.  Including the DC# of your package

ONCE YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PARTNER YOU MUST DISCUSS SEND-OUT DATES, WHETHER YOU WANT THEM BEFORE DURING OR AFTER YOUR FINALS. 

IF YOU ARE SENDING AFTER MAY 10TH YOU MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST PM ELMPIXIE AND TELL HER YOUR PERSONAL SEND-OUT DATE. 

MAY 10TH IS STILL THE CUT-OFF DATE FOR FEEDBACK ETC, SO YOU HAVE TO TELL ELMPIXIE OF YOUR DATE IF IT IS PAST THAT SO YOU DON'T GET BAD FEEDBACK!


PLEASE USE THE SUBJECT "College Finals Swap _______ (approval, question, sent or received) WITH ALL COMMUNICATION WITH EITHER ORGANIZER

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer "stitch and stones"

I know! I'm seriously bouncing up and down waiting to approve people. I'm being bad too- I really need to be studying. Whoops. There goes the traditional college attitude for priorities.

I like to play the "search craftster instead of doing my homework" game.  I have about 3 papers to write!  Shocked

Oops! I'll have to seriously think about this swap.  I don't wanna put off my school work anymore but at the same time.... I would sort of really like to join....

When are other people's finals? Mine are April 22-29 which I'm a little worried about because it's so close to the end date.  It would be great if people have later finals and I could craft after my finals and before my summer classes start.  I think that would be the only way I would be able to join this swap.

My finals start May 5th, then I graduate on the 10th!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Woo-hoo! Last finals ever! (Unless I decide to go to grad school)

Still contemplating this one. I think if I finish most of my papers this weekend then I'll sign up on Monday.  Roll Eyes

GatorWrangler- The sendout date we used is a basic guideline for sendouts. That's why in the questionaire we added if the May 10th sendout date would work with your finals. We expect that once you get your partners, you will communicate when you both want to send out, even if this is at different times.

This doesn't mean though, that you send elmpixie your send/ recieve information on May 10th. Make her job a lot easier and just send that info when you all can Smiley Also, the May 10th sendout will be the cutoff for negative feedback, ie. not sending, sending late with no communication, sending a week too late with communication etc.

Heyo, I'd like to sign up and am PMing my info to you, stitch, but my finals are actually quite a long time before anyone else's, I think: the week of April 27th. I am, however, perfectly okay with receiving the package after my classes are over. I can just save the stuff for midterms next year, or whatever. Smiley
