Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do pumpkins, ghosts, black cats and full moons make you giddy with joy? Do you look forward to the spooky month of October each year? Then this swap is for you! For this Halloween swap, we're sending 2 Medium items and 2 small items. This way, it's more Halloween fun but less crafting stress. Anything above the required two mediums and two small items are between you and your partner.

Whether you prefer things more cute or more gory, this Halloween swap is open to all interpretations of style and theme for the holiday. It is therefore important that you respect your partner's likes, dislikes, and preferences! Home accessories, costumes, decorations - the sky's the limit, so get creative!

(Original discussion thread here.)

Size Definitions
For this swap, we're crafting TWO Medium items and TWO Small items. Craftster defines these with the following guidelines. (Please remember this is a general guideline only, and you must use your own judgment on this. If it takes you three hours to make a simple paper bookmark, you're not going to want to count that as a large item!)

By Time
-Big/3 points = 3 or more hours
-Medium/2 points = 2 or more hours
-Little/1 point = 1 or less hours

By Size
-Big/3 points = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium/2 points = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small/1 point = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, magnets

By Price
-Big/3 points = $30 or more
-Medium/2 points = $10-$30 dollars
-Small/1 point = $10 or less

i'm super tempted, even though i said i was going to do any non-papercraft swaps.... but halloween!! really, how can i resist that??

how flexible are you on the 2 medium and the 2 small? the kind of stuff i make doesn't do small very well, except for jewelery, and i love to make clothes, which usually end up being a large. if it adds up to the same amount, would you be cool with that, or would you prefer to stick with the 2 medium and 2 small?

Sure, I don't mind. I want the swap to fit people's needs. (The only reason I picked 2/2 was because in the discussion, most people said they weren't as comfortable having a large in the requirement. But no, I don't mind! Grin

that KINDA sucks.  all next week I won't have a single day off from work (yeah...I'll be working at LEAST 6 days next week.  I forgot Monday is Labor Day and we're only open until 5).  I just have to finish one thing, and I'm done.

Craftster rules require that all first-time swappers successfully complete their initial swap before being permitted to sign up for another. I know it can be difficult to get started in swapping here because of that, but once you get the first under your belt, the rest go a lot easier.  Cheesy
