The theme of this round will be "Shades of Blue." Craft ONE MEDIUM item around this color theme. The possibilities are endless! Blues are my FAVE colors right now, so it was SO great that a fellow Craftster suggested this color in their theme suggestion! A great big thanks to elvissatx for this great suggestion on the FOCR Ideas thread, found HERE:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=248558.0ROUND 1 GALLERYhttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253749.0ROUND 2 GALLERYhttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263251.0

Friends of Craftster ONLY, please
Not a Friend of Craftster? Join here! Support the website that supports your crafting needs http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.phpPhotos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 8/13
so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.Drawing will be done on 8/14
and 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 if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the ‘winner’ will be surprised with their ‘prize’ when it arrives. 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 and acknowledged by way of PM to me. Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!
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 can post a picture or two for us showing off their great ‘prize.’
