NEW Send Out by July 5th!!


This is my first time hosting a swap so I hope I post this correctly.

Swap name: Small Mystery Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: mom2blu
Sign-up date range: 5-23 through 5-31 (or until full)
Date to send item by: July 1st

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 20

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? nope
If so, which country?

Age requirement? Must be 13

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES (several times!)
- 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
- 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
- Participant must have wists or etsy favs with a minimum of 50: YES

Details of swap:
This is going to hopefully be a fun quick swap, because it is small. It is a mystery swap and there are quite a few mysteries to it. You do not select themes, or pick items to recieve. You do not know who is sending to you, or where in the world they are from. You will receive a partner to mail too, then make 3-5 points worth of items to mail to them. This swap requires some stalking to decide what items would best suit your partner.  Remember, your partner CANNOT know who you are, that ruins one of the mysteries, so no writing to say hi, or ask questions. That is why your wists needs to speak for itself. Remember that the person you are sending to may not be the person sending to you! If you'd like email your partner secret anonymous notes or e-cards, just be sure you use an anonymous email!

Points are as follows:
Large- 3 points
Medium - 2 points
Small - 1 point

Sizes are described as:

By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium= one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big= $30 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars
-Small=$10 or less

Please know that some form of wishlist is required. You need to have a wist or etsy favs or something similiar (or both!) with a minimum of 50 items. The more the better. Just remember that the clearer you are about what type of items you like the more likely you are to receive items that suit you. You do not nessecary have to craft items exactly as seen on the wists, they can simply be ideas of your partners likes and dislikes.

If I forgot anything, or was unclear just call me an idiot and tell me what I forgot!  Smiley Also I am very chatty, so please feel free to pm me if you need more info, craft idea help, questions, or just if you want to brainstorm.


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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address

Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

What is the link you your wishlist(s):

If you were a crayon what color would you be?:

What color crayon is your enemy?:

What section on Craftster do you frequent the most?:

What types of items would you enjoy receiving (ie, jewelry, wall-art, purses, etc):

What items would you not enjoy?:

What items would make you want to stab them with a fork and throw them out of a moving vehicle?:

If you were a shoe, what brand/size/style/color would you be?

Do you have a certain style of decor in your house/dorm/apartment/room under the stairs?:

Jewelry, love it or hate it?:

How big should a purse be? Please pick one:

b) it should hold a wallet and a large set of keys
c) it needs to hold a wallet, large set of keys, several maxi pads, and exactly 4 tea bags
d) I like keeping my kitchen sink in there

Stuffies/dolls/poppets, love to squeeze them or love to squeeze the head right off of them?

Are these questions insane? Or insanely funny?

If you were a model would be like Twiggy or Emma? (aka what sizes clothes fit you best?)

When you are online, do you frequent sites other then craftster? If so, why?   (Ie do you have a blog, flickr, or other site of your own?)

Anything else?

ADDED QUESTION!!- Do you have any allergies, or allergens that your partners should know about?
