3 points: Large=3+ crafting hours
2 points: Medium=2-3 crafting hours

Ex.  One large and Two Smalls would fulfill the requirement of the swap.

14. Do you have a Wists, MySpace, Blog, etc. that your partner can get to know you from?
Tell your partner something about yourself.  Please go crazy herethe more info, the better:

Keep in mind when filling out the questionnaire that the more specific you are about what you LIKE and do NOT LIKE, the easier it is to pair you up!   Personally, I like to allow my swap partners the flexibility to craft the things they love to craftwhile keeping in mind my tastes.  Also, please do not ask for items that are completely out of the realm of possibilityyour partner is not going to knit you a sweater in a few weeks, and if you give them no other ideas, its going to be difficult to figure out what to craft you!  Also, I do believe that mentions of anything that can be perceived as controversial (i.e. religion, politics, etc.) should be left out of your questionnaire UNLESS it pertains to what you can/cant receive from someone.  Then, AND ONLY THEN, it should be stated in this way:  Due to religious, political, personal beliefs, I do not want to receive anything that is (fill in the blank).   


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Oh, ack! I so want to do this (and was planning to organize one after the first of the year) but I don't know if I can manage it right now... Sad

But at least it's just a 5 point swap so maaaaaybe I can swing it *crosses fingers*

Oh, I so wish I could do this! My first swap isn't over until the thirteenth of October, and there's another that might take place after that that I absolutely cannot miss. I'll definitely be watching how this one goes though!  Smiley
