Description swiped from Miss mermaid strikes back
In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me ((Superhooker)) and SevsOnlyGirl with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback. Signups will last two weeks, but may close early if there are tons of people, so sign up early!

You may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may have no more than two partners.

**IF you currently have too many swaps, but KNOW you will have positive feedback by the time the two weeks are over, you may still sign up and I will hold a spot for you and your partner. It will be your responsibility to pm me when you are eligible (under the 5 swap limit), or you will be dropped from the swap the last day of signups.**

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like. Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM Superhooker, and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners", so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

 RULES:
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.
- you cannot sign up for this swap if you are still currently late in any IYP swaps.

even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. once you do send, you will have positive feedback again, BUT this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.

THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!

another idea is to at least send some of what you have made your partner by the send out date and if you want to send more later because she sent so much, shes so cool, you ran out of time, thats fine! because you already sent!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM Superhooker AND SevsOnlyGirl and each other with mailing information.
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide BOTH organizers with a DC number when you do.
5. Pm your partner and BOTH organizers when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless you PM us. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you. In this case, you still need to post in the gallery about what you received.
6. Lack of PMs to both organizers and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!

I think I might change that to 50 total participants.  we've got a ton of double dippers in this swap, and 25 couples will fill up superfast.
