 The theme of this raffle swap will be "Best Of."  What are you 'best' at making?  Do you have an item you make that is always popular with friends or family, or is a big hit as a stocking stuffer or 'just because' gift?  This is the place to showcase it as a 'prize' for the ‘winner' !

Original idea thought of by Retromiad on the FOC Board:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238595.0

Swap name:  Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  TheSapphireMoon 
Co-organizer: DIY ho
Sign-up date range:  5/24/08 - 6/22/08
Date to send item by:  7/2/08
Limited to a certain number of people? NO
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?
Age requirement?  Over 13 and Friends of Craftster ONLY, please

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
- 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:

FRIENDS OF CRAFTSTER ONLY, PLEASE!
 
This IS an international swap, so if you are unable to ship outside of your own country please wait for the US only round.

Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have a little over 1 WEEK to send them out!  So once you know you are approved, start craftin’!

If you have a ‘pre-made’ item, GREAT!  This means you’re ready to go and we’ve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up ‘til signups close!  Grin

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 6/23 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.

Drawing will be done on 6/25, PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars)  Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium.  Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.

This will be a 'raffle' style swap.  There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn!  An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door!  Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (ie-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up. 

When a ‘winner’ is chosen, the creator of their ‘prize’ will get their address from the organizer in a PM.  PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET!  This way the ‘winner’ will be totally surprised with their ‘prize’ when it arrives.  Huh  Shocked  Cheesy

Please communicate in the thread ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap.  If I have not seen you posting in the thread, I will check in with you when there is about 2 weeks left to make sure you are still in on a ‘prize’ for the drawing.

Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap.  For international mailings, please retain the receipt as proof of mailing.  Please PM the DC to the organizer, me TheSapphireMoon, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and I will send this to your partner so we retain the ‘surprise’ aspect of this swap.  For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed, and if it never arrives a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable ‘prize’ for the ‘winner.’

Feedback will be given when your partner has received.

I will post a gallery for ‘prizes’ so when the ‘winner’ receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great ‘prize.’

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

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:  Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR)
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?
are at least 13 years old (yes/no)?
Have you fully read the Swap Info Guide and rules/guidelines for this swap?
Do you have any pets?
Do you or any members in your home smoke?
Do you have any allergies?  If YES, please list them.
Are you vegan or vegetarian (to make sure your name is not drawn to ‘win’ something made from animal derivatives)?
Anything you ABSOLUTELY would not want to receive for any religious/lifestyle/phobia reasons (clowns, violence/nudity themes, spiders, pagan themes….you get the idea…etc.)?
Anything else you would like me to know for the raffle, or that your ‘winner’ should know?

**Please put FOCR in the Subject of your PM so I can get to them quickly when communicating on this swap!

I will be at the beach tomorrow for the better part of the day...watch, I'll get home and have like 20 questionnaires to approve  Shocked

LOL!  I could only HOPE for my first swap to be that popular with the masses!

If I seem pretty absent tomorrow, this is why, but I promise I will be here during the later afternoon and evening.

Hope you all are having a great Memorial Day weekend so far!
