LV = LITTLE VISITOR

You will send a Little Visitor (LV) to your partner by April 19th, along with a BIOGRAPHY and CONTRACT  Your partner will sign the CONTRACT and send it back to you. The contact is so that they promise to love and care for your stuffy as if it was their own. And to send it home when the LV Visit is over.

You should work on finding/crafting/choosing your LV and writing his/her/its bio as soon as you are approved for the swap, since the first send-outs are less than a week after partners are matched up. 

Once you recieve your LV, show them around!  You should visit at least 8 different areas/parts of town/activities so that they can get the real experience of your community.  Of course, the more places they visit, the better!  And be sure to take lots of pictures to send home with your new friend!

You will be required to send at least 10 printed pictures in a scrapbook/journal type thing. (If anyone is going to have a problem with the 10 printed pictures please let me know when you sign up!!) I know not everyone is a scrapper/paper crafter but please do you best to send something you are proud of. Wink  I highly recommend sending a CD with additional pictures on it or even a link to your Flickr/Photobucket gallery of  your Little Visitor. You are also required to send 5 souvenirs/ mementos from the LVs trip.  The souvenirs can be crafted, bought, or both.  Try to send souvenirs that are unique to your area!  In previous rounds, craftsters have made their little visitors outfits or accessories, so you may do that too if you like.  Discuss how much you'd like to send with your partner.

Send your LV home by June 21st.  I know that's a long time for the swap to go on, but most LV swaps end up being extended by a month or so, so I'm just planning ahead.  Smiley  If you'd like to send the LV back earlier, again please discuss it with your partner.

To Reiterate:
* Send your LV, his/her/its bio, and the contract to your partner by April 19th
*Sign your partner's contract and mail it back AS SOON as you receive their LV.
*Take your LV around town and show them the sights!  Make sure they have fun, and stay safe!
*Make the scrapbook/journal and make or buy some souvenirs for the LV to remember its trip by.
*Mail the LV, the scrapbook/journal, and the souvenirs back to your partner by June 21st



IF YOU ARE MAILING WITHIN YOR OWN COUNTRY, YOU MUST GET A DC NUMBER when you send your own LV and when you send your partner's LV back home! If youre mailing internationally, you MUST KEEP YOUR RECEIPT (or other proof of mailing that is approved by me before sending)! And I require a picture or scan of the postal receipts so I can verify that you did in fact mail your LV to your partner and also when you have sent your LV back home.

Once you are matched up with your partner, please stay in contact with them!  If you haven't heard from your partner in a while, please let me know!  I hope we don't have any flakers, but if we do, it's better if we catch them quickly.

THIS IS A COMPLICATED SWAP AND ITS LONGER THAN MOST. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read everything before you sign up, and make sure you can commit to everything.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHILE CHOOSING A STUFFY TO SEND

- small is better than large. not only do you have to ship it, your partner has to ship it back!  also, small LVs tend to be easier to haul around town than large ones
- swaps arent perfect, and neither is the mail system. please dont send something youd be heartbroken to lose. There have been flakers in previous rounds.
- for better photos, send a LV that Is poseable (this is just a suggestion, most will not be posable, and that is ok)
- your partner might have allergies, so its best not to send something your cat loves to cuddle up with or thats been sitting on a shelf next to your incense collection!
- LV doesnt have to be a stuffed animal, feel free to send some sort of a doll/plastic toy/stuffed animal/poppet instead!

If youre up for it, PM me your info (see below) AND post here on the thread. That way Ill know that youll get notification of anything I post here.

If you want to participate, please put LV SWAP ROUND 8 as the subject!!! Send your completed questionnaire to the organizer (kishcrafts) AND the co organizer (FlowerWitch). Failure to do so may delay your entry into the swap. DO NOT BCC OR CC her, I must see in the PM that you included both of us in the PM "sent to" spot!!!

Would you prefer to receive a digital or paper scrapbook/journal?

I might be a bit enthusiastic over this one...  Info all sent!

And, I've just realised that my LV doesn't have a name!!  Oh well, I'm sure I'll be inspired in the next few days... but here he is anyway  Smiley

trying to look as respectable as possible:

Once I get my feedback from the Kitchen Swap, I'm totally in!  I'm filling out the info right now, and will be finishing my LV this afternoon!

Is it bad that I dreamt about this swap last night?!?   Cheesy

Isn't he!!  He found me while I was out checking local printing places, and he's already taken on a life of his own... and I'm sure he keeps frowning at me, I think he's impatient for me to pack his case...  Undecided

I had great fun with LV 7 but am holding off at the moment as I'm not sure who to send and I need to make sure I have the time for it. Though I know I'm doing a lot between April and June that would be fun...hmm

Yes I do Personal swaps though you might have to ask me really nicely as I don't have huge swathes of time on my hands Smiley However I love crafting for other people.
