Details of swap:
This, my dears, is the Pick-n-Choose Theme Swap! Whatcha do is pick 5 themes.
Then you create a list of at least 10 items you'd like crafted for your themes. Once you get partnered up, your partner will receive your list of themes and crafted items. They will then get to choose which kind of crafts (from your list) theyd like to craft to go along with each of your themes. Make sense? Heres an example:

Suzys themes would be:
1. Robots
2. Pin-up Girls
3. Owls
4. Ninjas
5. Hello Kitty

Suzys Crafted Items would be:
1.earrings
2.coin purse
3.original painting
4.crochet beret/hat
5.tote bag
6.scarf
7.stenciled tee
8.knitted socks
9.plushie
10. charm bracelet

Suzyz partner, Jane, then gets to pick and choose what kinda crafts from Suzys Crafted Items list, should like to craft to correspond with each theme. Jane picks:

1.Robots some robot earrings
2.Pin up girls shrinky dink charm bracelet
3.Owls an original painting featuring owls
4.Ninjas a ninja inspired stenciled tee
5.Hello Kitty a coin purse made of Hello Kitty Fabric

You may have more than 10 items listed in your Crafted Items list. In fact, the more you have, the easier it may be for your partner to choose/decided what to make for each theme. Please try to have your crafted items be a mix of different mediums (paper, clay, crochet,etc) and a mix of different sizes (small,medium,large) if possible. If there is a certain theme from your partner you absolutely can not craft (likewise, if theres a certain craft your not able to do after you already picked the ones you can) PM me and well work something out with your partner.

This sounds interesting! What number/size of items (like, how many smalls, mediums, or larges) will be required? Or will there be a point system?

Man!  I have signed up for 2 swaps already.  You are soooo tempting me to sign up for a 3rd!!  This sounds really, really fun!! Hmmmmm......I must give this some thought.  I need a big old 'swap calendar', that way I can keep track of what swap ends or starts on what day.

there are no size requirements

you will be crafting five things, one to match each theme

and you pick the craft off of their list

Really cool idea! However, do we have to make 5 items for someone? That seems like a lot, especially if our partner has only 5 themes.  Shocked

no you make an item for each of their themes, which should be a pretty broad theme like trees for instance....

and they will have a list of ten or more crafts they would like, some of which may be easy like a cellphone charm or more difficult like a purse, but you get to pic what crafts you do

i think it is an amazing idea because most people run out of ideas if they are limited to one theme and this way you wont be disappointed with what you receive because you would have chosen all the stuff that they are sending to you

thanks so much jessica.marie! you answered the questions wonderfully:)

there are no specific size requirements. i just ask that any participents to try their best to have a variation of sizes in their crafted items list. maybe, should there ever be another round, we could specify that you have to do at least one small, one meduim, one large. that's a good idea, but for now, it's up to you!

i'm so glad you guys are liking the idea! i was worried if anybody would be interested or not. thanks guys and should you have any more q's, feel free to ask!
