Date to send item by:  December 4th

- 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 feel like you should have been a flapper? Or maybe a flower child?  Do you wish you could wear day-glo and dance all night to David Bowie?  This is the swap for you!  This is a swap for people who identify with other time periods.  Each participant will choose up to 3 decades they would like their partner to craft for them.

Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner 6 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points

For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide: 

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.


Rules:

All participants must check in at least once a week, by pm or by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.

I've sent my info in!
I wasn't really born in the wrong decade, I just missed the peak of the party. I was born in '58, and was too young at 10 to appreciate the Summer of Love, but have always been a hippie at heart. Some of my art shows a definite bent towards the '60s and '70s. Heck, just check out my favorite projects made by me in my profile!

I want a partner that I can TOTALLY hippie out! I want someone who still flips peace signs, mourns the death of bell bottoms, and who thinks the Haight-Ashbury of the '60s should have been made a National Monument. Someone who digs love beads, thinks headbands and long dangly earrings are groovy, and has danced with the Dead-Heads. Someone who's favorite household appliance is a bong, believes in karma and free love, looks for any excuse for attending a sit-in demonstration, and has blacklights in at least one room.

Anyone like that here?
