Date to send item by: 08/14/08

Limited to a certain number of people?: No

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? NO

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

- 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

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:

“There was once a very lovely, very frightened girl. She lived alone except for a nameless cat”

Can't you just see it now? :
Sleep Masks and tasseled ear plugs. Pearls and sunglasses. A notebook covered with one of Sally Tomato's weather reports. Blue Prints for a knitted ranch house. A bracelet that resembles Holly's crazy key ring. Black gloves. Cat and Dog masks. A stuffed Cat, or perhaps a fabulous collar for a real cat.


This swap is for everyone who loves Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the wonder that is Holly Golightly. Other Audrey Hepburn films can be included, if desired and discussed with your partner.

You will craft 2 small items, 1 medium item, and 1 large item. You can talk with your partner if you want to do more items, or make any other modifications. Use your partner's questionnaire to judge what they might like.

Each participant will be expected to post on this thread at least once a week, updating us on your progress. Also, if you do not have a camera, please notify your partner so he/she can take pictures before sending.  Not posting pictures is rude, and if you fail to take photos (or at least explain why you can't!) I will make note of this on your feedback.

You’ll be required to change your avatar to an Audrey Hepburn or Breakfast at Tiffany’s icon for the duration of the swap (from when you are accepted until you have feedback). No two swappers can have the same icon. You’ll send me a link to the icon in your application , and if that icon is already taken, I’ll let you know that you need to change it.

You will also be expected to PM me (chucklikesart) and your swap partner when you send and receive. DC numbers, as with all swaps, are most definitely required. If you are going to be sending late, you will need to notify both your partner and me.

Definition of size of items:

By Time
-Big=4 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= $21 or more
-Medium=$11-20
-Small=$10 or less

Audrey would want you to join.

Yeah, it's something we decided to do in the swap discussion thread, because we wanted to feel like we were the popular kids in high school...
I really liked the idea,though!
We'd love to have you swap-- I'm sure we could enter into some avatar-keeping negotiations... maybe putting a little advertisment in your sig, instead?

Oh gosh how did I not even see this? It's my favourite film! I don't have any swaps in my feedback yet though. I've only done a personal swap and I'm currently in the OWS but my package is in transit.

Sigh, I really, really want to do this.

No worries! You've got a whole month before signups are over.  Grin

I was wondering if you'd thought about signing up-- we run in some of the same livejournal circles. I'm maggie_the_spy there.
