Sign-up date range:  9/23/08 - 10/07/08  (or until full!)
Date to send item by:  11/01/08 (extended!)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Age requirement?  Anyone over 13

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:

- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: 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:
Do you need your cuppa every morning, before you can even open your eyes?  Does your afternoon tea bring serenity and peace to your entire day?  Or does sipping your cocoa before bedtime make your day complete?  If so, this is the swap for you!  This swap is about all things that can be sipped and enjoyed from a mug! 

**You will be giving your partner a mug (handmade by you or store-bought) -- filled to the brim with your partner's favorite drink related goodies!
**You will be crafting 1 MEDIUM and 3 SMALL items for your partner.  Please discuss with your partner if you want to send more than this.  Please remember that there are 3 weeks for crafting.... plenty of time for the small number of items required.
**A small sample of your partner's favorite drink will be included.  Sending your local favorites and flavors are highly encouraged -- what a great way for your partner to learn about a new town/city/country -- yours!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=220591.0

More ideas:
**handmade mug
**coasters
**mug cozy
**cup cozy

And any of the following could be coffee/tea/cocoa themed:
**tea towel
**jewelry
**t-shirt
**recipe cards
**stationery
**small journal
**craft supplies


IMPORTANT Swap Requirements:
**You must PM me and your partner when you send and when you receive.... that's all part of good communication.  Just posting sends/receives/photos in the gallery won't be considered notifying me or your partner.  I won't leave feedback until I hear from you via PM.
**If you are shipping late, you must PM me and your partner ASAP, and before the send out date.
**DCN's will be required.  If you are an international swapper, you MUST keep your shipping receipts.
**You must be able to take photos of your package.  If you cannot, please let your partner know ASAP, so they can take pictures before they send.
**I check PMs and update feedbacks in the evenings, so please bear with me.

Be sure to post in this thread at least once a week to foster good communication and to let me know that you're still alive and kicking.  And crafting.
Send any communication to the organizer with the subject Fill A Mug Swap.
NOTE: please PM your organizer barbolot for any swap communications after partners are issued.

I really really want to do this one... but... I need to see how far I can get in crafting for the other two swaps I'm in before I can commit. If I can get ahead enough between now and the 7th, I'll probably sign my name to the list. This is a smaller swap, so hopefully I'll be able to do it...

Nooo, I'm so sorry!  Cry
But don't worry -- these are popular swaps, and there will be more in the future that you can join, I'm sure!  Although this particular one is "round 3" there have been many I <3 tea/coffee/cocoa swaps!

I'm only still full on swaps as the Fill a Box 9 has not been closed out on my profile yet...organizer has been under the weather, but is better now, so I hope to have it soon.  I also am just about ready to send on the IYP Craftster Cotillion so I hope to have more time as well Smiley  Funny, I was sipping the last bits of my coffee right now for the morning when I was reading this swap info  Grin  In my Hershey's Chocolate mug that I got from the thrift store....for .50....so I would have no issues finding a nifty one for this swap!

I hope you get feedback in time. Would be funny if we were paired again since we were just partners in the Fill a Box 9  Tongue
