This swap is limited to 25 people
This swap is OPEN TO ALL COUNTRIES
This swap has an age requirement of 13, per Craftster rules.

Although the swap is open to all countries I am going to still try to have US and overseas ppl in there own group as to help with shipping costs.


Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed One swaps 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:
We will be crafting up a gnome and sending him off to roam! You will have 2 weeks from close of sign ups to craft up a gnome, in whatever fashion you choose. You will also need to include a small photo album and 4 SMALL trinkets from your town with him. All participants will be put into groups of 5 people. Your roaming gnome will visit each person in your group.  Here's how this will work: We will be sending in a chain ... you will ship to the same person each time, but will be shipping a different gnome! On the first send out date, you will pack up your gnome (make sure he's comfy!), his photo album, and 4 trinkets from your town. You will send this to your "send to partner". When you receive each visiting gnome you will take him out on the town for a photo shoot! Print at least 2 pictures with him(more is welcome but not required), and put them in his album. Take out ONE of the trinkets in his box and keep it for your gnome to remember where he has been when he gets home! Pack up the visiting gnome again (making sure he's comfy) with his album (complete with new pics) and the remaining trinkets, and send it to your "send to partner". You will then receive another gnome, do the same thing, take him out for pictures, print at least 2 and put them in his album, keep ONE trinket for your gnome, pack up the visiting gnome (make sure he's comfy) w/album, pics, and remaining trinkets, and ship to you "ship to partner" again. We will be sending the gnomes to visit someone new every 2 weeks, with the exception of the last date (which falls too near Christmas). This date will be extended to 3 weeks to fit in the holiday. Early Sending is always welcome.


PM to Hollistercobabe and Make sure GNOME is in the title:
QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Allergies (pet dander, smoke, etc.)
Allergens in your home (pets, smoke, etc.)

Make sure the album has your username somewhere on it (inside, outside, back) so ppl can be aware of your allergies.
We don't want any ppl allergic to say pollen having there Gnome going for walks through flowers.


Make sure you put some kind of writing on the back of the pics so that his mom will know where he is in the photos. It can be something as simple as Fort Worth,Texas or as detailed as Fort Worth Stock Yards hanging out with Billy the Bull.

This will be a long swap so make sure you are really committed before signing up. Also since you will be sending 5 times it can get pricey for postage. Sending Priority mail 5 times is $24. How ever you choose to send proof needs to be provided.

If there is enough ppl in Canada interested I could open it up and make a group just for y'all. I did US only to try to keep cost down since you have to ship so many times.

I do plan on shipping my Gnome out in future personal swaps in the new year as I've talked to several craftsters and they said they would totally take pics with him and send him back. So of course I would gladly do this for anyone who wanted to.

Just go ahead and send in your questionnaire and I can reserve a spot for you. If something happens and you can't be in it just let me know.
