In a nut shell the sweat shoppe swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 5 like items, and in return you will receive 5 different items. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice. Here are the details;

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 14 (SSS 14)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: May 3 to May 23
Date to send item by: June 13

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):NO

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?NO

All ages allowed? yes

This next part is for me and the Mods...
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: YES
- 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/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~Each participant will make 5 like items. For instance, 5 crocheted cloche hats (varied colors or the same it doesn't matter), or 5 sets of hand painted beads.
~Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe discussion thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ No DCN's are required, however, if a package fails to arrive, you will be required to send another, unless you save your receipt from the PO, and in that instance I will get an angel.
~ Feedback will be given when all 5 items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 5 items) or twice (for 10 items)


...

I am offering Swirl Pendants this round.  I made them in a red/white mix, blue/white mix and a purple/pink mix.  They come on a black cord with a toggle clasp and the pendants are 1 3/4 - 2 inches across and they aren't heavy. They are all slightly different.


all the pendants (I made a few extras that I gave away)

For some reason I can only see the pic of the last one, but it's really pretty!  I would love one of those.  Grin
Thanks for starting the sign ups.   I need to finish up crafting and then I will sign up. 
Edited to add pics of my offering:

There will be 5 colors available, and I am offering two of each color.  (I am going in 2x.)

Here are the other colors that are available:

I pay for flickr, so I'm not very happy the pictures aren't showing up Sad  If it continues I will have to host the photos on my site.

Hmmm...I maybe could do this Smiley  I have lots of great stuff in that equivalent price range I could make.  I have a few photos of my cell phone charms up there, and I have tons of great beads for these and hemp jewelry.  Anklets and necklaces are my fave to make Smiley  Anyone interested in a set of either of those items?
