Swap name: Robots in Spring
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: jennybean
Sign-up date range: Mar 6 - Mar 18
Date to send item by: Apr 11

i made a nice long gap between the sign-up period and the mailing deadline so that people have time to communicate about sizes and likes/dislikes and to customize their projects, if they desire.

Limited to a certain number of people? no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes, but it's not going to be spring in the southern hemisphere so i apologize for the untimeliness

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: yes i am aware and no i will not allow them to participate

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will make sure that every participant has been a member for at least 1 month: yes and yes

Details of swap: we like robots! in honor of their wonderfulness and the coming of spring, we will each make and send three (3) items that are robot- and spring- themed. so not only robot-y, but utilizing spring colors and themes.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

also remember to ship with delivery confirmation and to forward dc numbers to me, jennybean.

This is such a good idea! I have so much to do through mid May. Maybe I can figure out how to make some room for this swap...

Hooray!!!
My sister and brother-in-law were a production assistant and computer animator (respecively) on the film Robots from Blue Sky.  It's coming out Friday, by the way, so everyone has to go see it.  But my whole family has been robots-bonkers for months, so I've got lots of inspiration along this line.

...but be prepared to get a Rodney and/or Fender bit of propaganda mixed in with my crafts if you're my partner....

Looking forward to this.

Ok, this is my first time even knowing about a swap and it is something I'd like to get involved in.  So, I clicked on this one! (Aren't you lucky!) Unfortunetly, I do not know what a 'robot in spring' type swap is, as in-I'm not sure what I would need to make.  Perhaps this means I should not try to get invovled with this one and I should wait until the next one.  Or, maybe it means some nice person can PM me and fill me in on all the lovely details.  Whichever one works best, is fine!
Thank you!

Hmm, perhaps I am an idiot or just very ignorant!  How could I have missed this area

it's ok. your enthusiasm took control. there are actually a lot of swap virgins signing up. i am a swap organizer virgin too. it's all good.

anyway, there are a bunch of sticky topics at the top of this board that new people should read to learn about the do's and don'ts (dont's? how are you supposed to punctuate that?) and rules of swapping.

Is this three different projects to the same person, or one each to three people?

do people want to do three different recipients?

I would prefer just one recipient, it works better with my plans.

Oh, and blurgh at unexpected expenses. Can't start my roboty goodness til next week. *le sigh*

I realize it's not exactly a problem, considering next week is only the cutoff for signups, but still, I was so psyched...!

last week of sign-ups!

we'll just keep it one recipient since nobody's expressed interest in having three. i don't want to make a change that's going to make shipping more expensive at this point.

so, edamame, in answer to your question: three things to one person.

argh! i just deleted all the messages in my inbox. erf.

there were one or two people signing up for the swap whose info i lost. so: if your name is not on the list in the above post, but you have pm'd your info, i need you kindly to resend your address and shipping pref's, please! hopefully you are checking this thread occasionally. everyone else: i already have most of you in my handy dandy database ... if i don't pm you, do not despair. see, the real problem was i didn't have those craftster's names written anywhere!

wow. that was a really inconvenient absentminded thing to do. grph!

i must say though, new york's weather right now is not inspiring spring thoughts. we just had a snowstorm. Tongue

Blurgh again. I might have to be a week late. I am really sorry for this, but I just had $150 stolen from me, and the small amount of money I had left that was supposed to go towards the rest of my supplies and shipping for this swap now has to go towards replacing the money that was stolen.

I forget who my partner is, and am too lazy to check, but I'm really sorry, I hope you can forgive me... I'll be getting everything done ASAP.

ok, as the shipping date gets closer, i have a few reminders. please ...

1) tell your partner if you don't have a camera so they can take photos before they send. that way we all see what you get ... it's fun for the rest of us, so don't be a party pooper!

2) get delivery confirmation and PM me your dc number.

3) be nice and let your partner know when you get your stuff.

ps. re: the above post from princess dukki--i emailed her and her partners, so if you are princess dukki, gaiter_girl or alisonwonderland, check your inbox.

I think 2 weeks past the sendout date should be plenty of time.
She hasn't posted pics of what I sent her either, would it be alright to
post them myself?
