Swap name: LEMONS TO LEMONADE:FIX MY BOTCH (SIGN UP UNTIL JULY 11) (SEND AUG 29)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Mywitsand4
Sign-up date range:  JUNE 30 TO JULY 11
Date to send item by:  LEMONS OUT BY JULY 15; LEMONADES OUT BY AUGUST 29
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES
If so, which country? US OR CANADA  (BECAUSE YOU WILL BE SHIPPING TWICE, I WILL TRY TO MATCH PEOPLE IN THE SAME COUNTRY TO MINIMIZE SHIPPING COSTS)

Age requirement?  NO, BUT GET PARENTS PERMISSION IF NEEDED

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:
Time to dig out those poor neglected projects that did not go as planned.  Send your lemons to someone else to fix and get back some lemonade!  (if you dont have a neglected botch, a long unfinished project will work as well)


I will try to match you up with someone who does the same kind of crafting, unless you answered you didnt care.   Also, let us know if you really want your botch FIXED or REVAMPED into something else completely.
PLEASE check in once a week or so as this is kind of a long swap. 

Notice there are TWO SEND OUT DATES.  You must be able to get your lemons in the mail by July 15!  Please follow the same procedures you do with regular sendoutsget DC and insurance if needed.  Lemonades need to be send back by August 29. 

You all wont necessarily be swapping back and forth with the same person.  Your lemon might go to one person, and you might get someone elses lemon besides theirs.  Clear as mud?
WHEN POSTING TO THE GALLERY YOU MUST SHOW BEFORES AND AFTERS, SO BE SURE TO TAKE PICS BEFORE YOU SEND OUT YOUR LEMONS!!!!
This is my first swap as an organizer, so suggestions are welcome. 

ETA: Talk to the partner who is getting your lemon regarding how many you can send.  They may have the time to fix more than one, or perhaps use multiple lemons for one final lemonade! 









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 are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

What crafts can you do?
what is your lemon?

Do you want your lemon FIXED, REVAMPED, or DONt CARE?
Do you want your lemon to go to someone who does the same type craft (a knit botch to a knitter, does a very different craft (what could a doll maker create from my unraveling knit), or you like surprises and dont have a preference?



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.

Hmmm....so you think I keep my failures...sadly, yes, to learn from...
And of course I have tons of UFO's

Hopefully I get a spot free. 
(I'm sure I will, but post & feedback are out of my control.)

This sounds like a great challenge which is one reason I join swaps (that and to get HP items Cheesy)

ah.man.   if there are enough swappers on the same continent, then by all means sign up!    Wink 
the ONLY reason i said just us and canada was because shipping back and forth could get pricey.
