 Swap name: Ongoing Swap Your Craft Books and Magazines Round 1
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: SundayAfternoonHousewife
Co-Organizer: Iheartcapnhook
Sign-up date range: Ongoing Swap, running May 22-June 22
Date to send item by: within 2 weeks of being claimed.

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

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES! USA only please for round 1. If this works well, I will expand to international later.
If so, which country? USA

Age requirement? none (aside from the standard 13 requirement)

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: This is the only 1
- 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
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
Ok Ladies and Germs, this is a new type of ongoing swap. I haven't hosted one of these before, so I will do my best to explain it while stealing tons of verbage from other ongoing swap organizers.

This ongoing swap is for Craft books and Magazines ONLY! Books and magazines do not need to be new, but they MUST be in good condition. If they are not, for example you tore some pages out of a magazine, you MUST note this when you list your item. We don't want any one to be disappointed by a magazine missing pages!

In the swap you will post which books or magazine you have which you are willing to GIVE away! You will NOT be requesting books, but rather you will make a list of books or magazines which you have that you no longer want or need and are willing to give to someone else who could use it.

This swap will run in the following manner:
This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted, and post your own list of books and magazines in response so someone can claim from you. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month, if Craftsters decide to organize a new round at that time.

At the top of your claim post, state how many claims you have made this month, and how many of those are outstanding (i.e. the recipient has not yet received the item). If you can do it in this format to differentiate between things you are claiming to receive, and things being claimed from you (sendouts), that would be awesome!
Here is an example of what to put at the top of each claim/list.
Claims:4
Claims Allowed (Outstanding):3
Sendouts Not Sent:1
Sendouts Sent:2
Sendouts in Transit:1
Sendouts Received:1

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round: The amount of claims you may have are as follows.
Friend of Craftster: Three (become a Friend of Craftster!)
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

This is how many pending at a time you may have. As soon as one of your packages is received then you may claim again.

Your list of offerings: if your list stays up for more than 48 hours before someone claims from it, you must add something to it. You can also allow claimers to add more items together to make a claim (i.e. they don't seem to be biting on your Martha Stewart from 1999, so now they can take two Martha Stewart's instead of just one.) It is up to you how many claims you want to count a magazine "cost." For example, you could have 3 magazines equal 1 claim if you choose. Books should always equal 1 claim.

 Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  Please contact the organizer by personal message when you send the package and when you receive a package so everyone gets credit.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO
: Books can be sent via MEDIA MAIL if you choose. It is a low cost alternative, but it takes a bit longer for them to arrive. Magazines can not be sent media mail because it is against Postal Regulations. You may also choose to send priority or first class, but EVERY shipment must get a Delivery confirmation number and you need to send to the receiver AND the organizer.

Photos and the Gallery:  Whenever possible, include pictures of the items you're offering in your posts, especially magazines so that we can see the cover! For books, you may post a photo of the book in your list, or you may include a link to Amazon or another book seller which would include more information about your book. There will not be a gallery for this swap since we are not making anything hand made.

This round of the swap will close around midnight, on the official Craftster clock, June 22. Feedback will be given on June 23rd for all participants who have no pending claims. Everyone whose packages haven't been received will get feedback once the package reaches its destination.

Reminders/Summary:
1. Make sure to PM both me and who you sent to when you send out, with DC number if you are both in US.
2. Make sure to PM both me and who you receive from when you receive.
3. As soon as you claim something from someone, shoot them a PM with your address so that they have it and don't have to chase you down later.
4. Lets keep this swap moving, try to stay on top of adding new things/combining items into one claim if your list stays up more than a couple days.
6. Lets try to keep this thread for lists as much as possible to save on confusion. If your list is up, you may post a "bump" after you have added something new/combined your items, but otherwise please try to post all questions/comments/requests/whatever into our  discussion thread



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that you are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Any thing you want the organizer to know that relates to this swap?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
