Swap name: The Delightfully Devious Dexter Swap 
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: NerdyCrochetGal
Co-organizer:  cassiecate57
Sign-up date range:   (CLOSED)
Date to send item by:  (Dec. 13, 2008 )  There is a long crafting period, since November and December tend to be busy months for everyone.

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  50

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? Nope

Age requirement?  13

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 (and in fact we have cassiecate57 offering to help)

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 swap 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:

If you love the charming serial killer that is a Miami blood spatter analyst by day then welcome to the swap. This swap is for all people who love Dexter!!  For this swap, we will be crafting 7 points , with the point system being:

large= 3pts (3+ hours, or a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, set of jewelry with 5+ items, a purse, $30+)
medium= 2pts (2-3 hours, a scarf, a set of jewelry with 2-3 items, $10-$30)
small= 1pt (Less than 2 hours, a piece of jewelry, bookmark, less than $10)


Your crafts can be based off of anything relating to Dexter. Although I would suggest everyone steer clear of typical serial killer fare, such as sending your partner a knife collection, or blood soaked clothes (however a little red paint never hurt anyone!).
 
Swap Rules/ Requirements:
1. You will need to give updates, and stay active in the swap thread, if you fail to do so then I will leave a comment about your communication in the feedback.  With that said, I don’t like giving negative feedback  and I believe that it is reserved for people who flake, but if you have not sent out by December 27th  you will receive negative feedback that will only be reversed once your partner receives.

2. You’ll need to post an update on Nov. 22 or 23, to give an update of your progress (even if you haven’t started crafting yet, I know some people like to wait) so I can make sure everyone is still with us at that point.

3. You will need to post pictures of your swap items within a timely manner (I’d say within a week), as I feel it’s only right to show off your swap goods since your partner put so much effort into making them for you. Besides, pictures are the reason everyone stalks swap galleries.

4. You will need to send me a Delivery Confirmation number, or a Customs slip number (if sending internationally) as proof of sending.

5. Finally, IF YOU HAVE TO SEND LATE!!! Make sure to let me know before the send-out date, and let me know when you will be sending.

Communication is VERY IMPORTANT! I am here for you guys, so please PM me with anything you need, even if it’s just help with ideas.


If you’re interested, and you can live with the swap rules that I’ve set up, send me (nerdycrochetgal) this completed survey:

Have you read the books (if so which ones)?

On a scale of 1-10 how much gore do you prefer (1=blood spattered, 10=sitting in a puddle of blood)?

Alright! Keep those surveys coming if we fill 50 people before Nov.7th that's just the sooner everyone gets partners. Grin BTW, so not a surprise that cosmo_mouse is one of the first, since her little guy is named Dexter. Also not a shock that knickertwist is here either, I love the painting of Dex in his bowling shirt you did. I am so excited about this swap. Even if I am going to have to decline from participating. I still feel like the gallery is going to be full of wistable items. Grin

Don't worry I plan on doing more rounds, since due to personal things going on I can't participate (I am only organizing). And since I FREAKING LOVE THIS SHOW, there will be more rounds, oh yes, there will be more rounds...
