Swap name: The Four Elements Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: the franz   
Sign-up date range: 10/17/08 - 10/31/08 or until full
Date to send item by: 12/08/08

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

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

Age requirement? If you are under 18 please get your parent's permission
Details of swap:
This swap is all about the elements: Earth, Air, Water, and Fire!  We will be crafting for this swap based on the point system for total of 8 points, each of the 4 elements must be represented and at least 70% of your items must be crafted. 
For some great ideas on what you could craft check out the preliminary thread here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=269198.0

1 Point = 1 Small, 1 hour or less crafting time, purchased items less than $2.50 or found items

2 Points = 1 Medium, 1 - 3 hours crafting time, purchased items $2.50 - $5

3 Points = 1 Large, at least 3 hours crafting time, purchased items $5 - $10

The point system simply allows for flexibility in this swap, e.g. you've got a super awesome idea for fire but are having trouble with what to craft for air then you can devote more points to fire and less to air.  This also opens up the option of crafting for the fifth element: spirit, as suggested by craftster Ronda S.  Remember though to try to keep a good mix of different sized items and to communicate with your partner about how you are planning to craft your points, just don't tell 'em what your making unless both of you decide it's okay. 

OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
You have to PM me and your partner when you both send and receive.  If you are sending within US you need to get a DC or tracking number.  If you are sending internationally you must have proof of shipment in either a receipt or customs number.

We want to see all your goodies so if you don't have a digital camera please get your partner to take pics for you.

Please keep good communication with your partner. 

There will be two check-ins that will be done via PM at half way and one week before send outs.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, concerns or something comes up.  And remember to HAVE FUN!

*NOTE* I work a full time job Monday through Friday so all communications and feedback updates will generally happen after 5PM EST during the week.

If you want to participate, please send your questionnaire and all other PMs to me with 4 Elements Swap in the subject line:

knitting christmas gifts...another swap...knitting christmas gifts...another swap...decisions, decisions. 

I will keep this in mind for now.  I just hope people don't mind someone that will craft mostly mediums and smalls.  Me and large item crafting aren't a good mix.

Personally, I wouldn't mind mediums and smalls myklia, we would love to have you! Most of the ideas I've been kicking around in my head have involved those sizes too.
