Similar crafting level?
How would that be judged?
I think that the reason swaps are fun is that you send/receive something that is not what you normally would make for yourself-- that is made for you by someone, that you made for another...
I don't know how you judge someones' efforts in that respect.

Well, I'm confused.. Does this swap have a limited budget? Does it mean we send only one thing, or more..?
I'm sorry, but can you be more specific?

I think the "similar crafting level" thing is a good idea. I think it's just to make sure that someone who makes a quilted tote bag (alot of work) doesn't recieve a seashell keychain (nothing against them, just that they don't take so much effort). I think it's a good idea. No one feels cheated.

I don't know how you judge someones' efforts in that respect.

I don't mean pairing people that are making similar things, I meant pairing peole that are of a similar skill level. As FunkyOlive indicated, I'd be a bit disappointed if I put several hours work into a swap and received a something that took a lot less effort.

Seriously, if anyone is offended by this, I'll definitely take it out of the post.

Well, I'm confused.. Does this swap have a limited budget? Does it mean we send only one thing, or more..?
I'm sorry, but can you be more specific?

I hadn't thought to give it a limited budget, most swaps that I have been involved in have been a 'use your own judgement' thing. If you're making something time-consuming, then one thing might be appropriate, but if you're making something smaller, you might want to make a few things.

I feel like I'm getting this all wrong.

I've removed the part about sending a link to your work. I had some, uh, less encouraging messages about it and I want to apologise to anyone who was offended.

For what it's worth, I should mention that the crafts that have been sent are aboslutely gorgeous and of the highest quality.

I really am sorry, guys!

I've just finished making a bunch of little stuffies that might fit your requirements, if no one else can do it, I'll be your swap partner.

i signed up, but would feel better if we had just a few guidelines about how many things we should send and what not. I am paranoid that i will send too few things or something!! and i don't want my partner to be dissapointed!

I'm confused about what this swap is about.  Is this just anything ocean themed?  It just seems like a very broad topic which might lead to uneven exchanges...

I actually like that the swap has a kind of broad theme -- a lot of times it seems like swaps are really specific, which can exclude people who aren't interested in the theme, you know?  like there might be a (making this up, off the top of my head) stenciled swordfish t-shirt swap, which is really great for people who like to stencil and who want a swordfish t-shirt, but not so great for anyone else.  so I like kind of more inclusive swaps.  And in terms of fairness, you can always work out an agreement with your swap partner, you know.

I couldn't have said it better, thanks princesskati.

I think the best bet is to talk to your swap partner. Personally, I tend to just make whatever I am inspired to make.

Hey guys,
I've had a few people ask for guidelines on how much to send, so I thought I'd ask you what you think.

I'm probably going to be sending one large, time-consuming thing and probably four or five smaller things.

Any thoughts?

Ok. Here's what's happening.

Psshimsosass turned out to be a FLAKER. Fortunately, she flaked on ME in another swap, so I took her out of this swap and had the person sending to her (sewwabisabi) sent to the person she was supposed to send to (lauramae) instead.

Does that make sense?

So, other than sewwabisabi, who has only just received lauramae's details, I've heard from everyone to tell me that they have sent. THANK YOU EVERYONE.

Judging from the swap gallery, the following have received:

Jadey_McShadey (who PROMISES to post photos of her AMAZING oceanea tomorrow)
Carina
Tabarhodes

is oceanea a word?

If you have received and aren't on this list, please post in the gallery or PM me.

Thanks everyone!

ppcakes. I'm assuming that you have your photos hosted somewhere? If not, try villagephotos.com or photobucket.com. Both are free and reliable.

When you get to the post reply page, copy and paste just the address of the photo into the box that you write into (it will be something like this: http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/478983/umbrella.jpg [photo of me as a child, just as an example])

Now, look above the part where you're writing, there is a row of emoticons and above that a row that starts with a spoked circle thing, the next one is a photo in a frame. Highlight the address of your photo and then click the second icon. Voila! Photos!

I hope this hasn't confused you more than you were!

Talon! I'm so sorry, I've sent her a couple of PMs as well.

According to the DC#, she's received her part of the swap, which really sucks.

Give me a couple of days and I'll send you something to make up for it.

Anyone else up for swap angel duties? You don't need to send a whole swap worth, just something small. PM me if you want to help out.
