Firstly, allow me to offer a big THANK-YOU to Jennickell for organizing rounds one and two - several of us would not have the beginnings of a stash without her. Smiley

Swap name: The Givers and Needers Swap R3 (round three)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: instantkarma
Sign-up date range: 7/15/08 to 7/22/08 or until full
Date to send item by: Givers send by 7/31/08; needers send by 8/14/08

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 16; that's eight needers and eight givers.

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?: YES
If so, which country?: US/Canada, just because of shipping costs
Age requirement?: Must be at least 13

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:

Welcome to the Givers and Needers swap! It's time for round three!

Givers: If you have an overabundance of craft supplies, this is your role. You send a box (doesn't matter how big or how small; it's totally up to you) to a Needer and receive a little thank-you gift for all your generosity. You do need to get a DC# for your package.

Needers: If you have a need for craft supplies, this is your role. You will receive a box from a Giver with things you asked for in your questionnaire, and once you have received it you will send a little thank-you gift to the Giver.  This could be an ATC, a handmade card, a piece of jewelry, whatever. You do not need a DC# for this gift, but taking a picture of the package before it has been sent (in the envelope) is required.

This swap is limited to 16 people because it takes some work to match swappers up. There will be eight givers spots and eight needers spots; once they are filled, they are filled.

This is a great way to de-stash and help a fellow crafter out who may for various reasons need some supply help. I have personally been on the receiving side of this swap and have never been disappointed with what I received.

New for this round: if you have not sent out by the sendout date, you will be given negative feedback UNTIL you PM me with your proof of sending your package.

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

I'd like to sign up as a giver, if my receiver could wait for me to send out on Saturday 8/2 - I have trouble making it to the PO during the week...

Edited: I have gone through the questionnaires and picked out the first seven needers and five givers that have signed up. I'm really, really sorry that I couldn't let everyone in that needs, but thank you for wanting to participate. There are still two givers' spots left, so please sign up for one of them if you can.

Oh, and for people who might be like "but I sent my questionnaire in waaay before him/her!", the names on the list aren't in any particular order; I just wrote them down as I went. Oh, and if we end up getting a few more givers, I'll take the next needer that signed up. Smiley
