It's that time to purge your stash and get new stuff - it's FILL-A-BOX time!

Swap name: Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 8 (aka: Flat Rate Box Swap)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Daniethanas
Sign-up date range: 7/16-7/31 (partners by 8/3)
Date to send item by: 8/23

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
**Update 7/21 - We have a co-organizer! Camelama will be working with me in this swap. Smiley**

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES. This is a Fill a "US Postal Service Flat Rate Box" Swap so unfortunately it is limited to individuals in the U.S. Sorry.

Age Restrictions: Over 13, as stipulated in new swapping rules

As a reminder each participant must meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month
- Has posted at least 15 times
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps
- Does not have any negative feedback
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old

Details of swap:
Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 8 (US Flat-Rate Box Swap!)

Its that time of the year again, clean out those overflowing baskets, boxes and craft closets.  What a better way to spend a summer day than purging your craft stash and making room for new supplies!

You'll fill a FLAT-RATE US Postal Service rectangular box with as much as you can jam in and send it to your partner (Don't forget the Delivery Confirmation). Information about USPS flat-rate shipping can be found here: http://www.usps.com/shipping/flatrate.htm?from=priority&page=flatrate
**The $9.80 price is for 2 different flat rate boxes; one is a squarish one and one is a flatter rectangular one. The one that should be used is the flatter rectangular one - I believe that the USPS website calls it a "Shirt Sized Box" or something to that effect. Because a lot of people will send 8.5 x 11 sized books and patterns from time to time, this is the preferred one and that way too everyone is on the same playing field.**

Gently Used supplies are fine, if not encouraged-- take this opportunity to do a little craft purging, the result is a clean(er) craft closet and some fresh ideas/supplies for crafting. Because of the special type of box (only $9.80 plus delivery confirmation) this is limited to US participants only. Sorry.

As Oops Creations has done in the past, if you are interested in sending a 2nd box that's fine too. Just be sure to note that on your questionnaire.

Sign-ups will run from 7/16 thru 7/31. I'll be working to get you your partners by midnight on 8/2 at the latest.

If you want to participate, information to send to Daniethanas (the organizer):

We'd love to have you join in the fun! A lot of the reason I did sign-ups until the 31st is to give people a chance to finish out their July swaps first... I mean really, who doesn't want to destash and then get cool stuff in return. Smiley

I'm already walking around filling a tote with things so when matches are up I can just pick right out of the box. I have waaayyy too much craft stuff-my DH would crap if he knew just how much....  Roll Eyes

I signed up for the Needer/Giver swap too just because I have so much.

Now if I just had time to craft!

I'll be signing up once I get a spot open.  I was just going to suggest this in the New swap Themes area!

I've got a whole ton of vintage craft books, would anyone be interested in those?  I've got other stuff too!
