Make sure you stuff the box to the fullest capacity. You can craft items to help your partner stuff stockings, fill their gift list or, get a head start making their holiday decor.


If you do not celebrate Christmas, not to worry, all comers are welcome!  The main spirit of this swap is to have fun crafting for others!    I'll do my best to partner swappers according to their interests.

Swappers will be crafting items worth a total of 7 POINTS
1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS
1 SMALL= 1POINT


Partners may swap more if they are both in agreement and able to send on or before the deadline of December 1st.

Please make contact with your swap partner as soon as possible after partners have been assigned. 
You will be expected to pm your partner and check-in with a reply on this thread at least once per week until you have sent.
I can't emphasize enough how important communication is to the swap process.

This is a US only swap and you must fill a regular size flat rate box unless you and your partner decide on the bigger box for 12.95.

There is a strict deadline because it's for Christmas. No one wants to get there Christmas presents next year. So no swappers who are constantly late or new swappers will be allowed in this swap. You must have completed as least 1 swap. Sorry.

This swap looks like fun.  I am thinking about it just have to think up some ideas for the questionier.  Even though I don't have any babies or small children to craft for myself I would love to craft for someone elses kids.  It is so much fun making Christmas gifts for kids.

I love making stuff for kids too. It takes a lot less time to make a kid's dress than an adult dress. And kids are super easier to please. And usually more appreciative.

I know that my kiddo has LOVED everything that he's gotten from Craftsters.  He also loves knowing where things came from.  He's got stuff from all over the world!
