Do you love candy and all things sweet? Missed the cupcake swap but looooove cupcakes? This swap may be for you!
We will be swapping items that are candy or sweet themed. You can do chocolates, cupcakes, cakes, pies, lollipops... any kind of tasty sweet theme!
This is a fairly laid-back swap, considering the amount of crafting time we've got. Your requirements for this swap are ONE MEDIUM ITEM and THREE SMALL ITEMS. You and your partner can always decide to exchange more, but this is all that you are required to do.
This swap has an extended crafting date because many of us are going back to school at the end of August. With the increased workload that comes with school, I thought it was only fair to give an extra week so we're not scrambling to send when school starts. IF YOU ARE FINISHED before the send-out date, feel free to send! Sending earlier is always encouraged, but not required!
Candy is not required as part of the package, but you can feel free to add it in! Just be careful of the climate to which you're sending; if it's going to be hot and a package may sit outside, you wouldn't want to send chocolate or something else that may melt or perish.
If you are not able to take and post photos in our gallery, MAKE SURE YOU LET YOUR PARTNER KNOW so (s)he can take them before the items are shipped!
When you have shipped, you must send your group leader a PM to let her know, and it must include a tracking number (unless your partner is not in the same country)! If you've never swapped before and don't know how to get a tracking number, they are easy to obtain from the USPS. Every post office has the option to add Delivery Confirmation to your package for under $1. The receipt is bright lime green and white.
If you are shipping internationally, you MUST save your post office receipt as proof that you sent your package, JUST IN CASE it gets lost. Just put it in a safe place!
