Yay for another person signing up! Now there are four! I just hope even more people decide to join because I think this is going to rock.

I'm seriously considering signing up for this swap, because I LOVE anything Joss Whedon has touched, especially Buffy.  I've never done a swap before, and I want to be clear on everything before I sign up.  The whole hour/point thing confuses me even after reading the FAQ, especially because the FAQ states these size guidelines:

By Time
-Big = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Little = 2 or less hours

But this specific swap's guidelines seem to conflict:
ONE hour = $10 = ONE point

Would a five point swap mean that I spend 5 hours and $50 on my craft?  And a fifteen point swap, 15 hours or $150?  That seems awfully expensive.  Can someone please clarify for me?  Sorry I'm so confused!  I'm super excited to do this!

I'm not organizing, but I'll add what I think and someone can correct me if I am wrong.

Basically, a small item is worth one point, a medium item is worth two points and a large item is worth 3 points.  These are ballpark...I'm sure you could end up making a large item worth more (am I right?).  This can be based on how long you spend crafting OR on how much you spend crafting.  So if it is something you whip out in less than 2 hours and the cost was minimal, it is one point.  More time and/or money = more points.

Did I get it all right?

I am interested in personal swaps...and kittens...and rocks.  Weird huh?

Rumpazel got it pretty close, thanks!

The dollar amount essentially applies if you were to purchase what you made, instead of making it yourself. For example, a pair of earrings, which probably wouldn't take more than an hour to craft, would likely cost about $10 to buy. A tote bag, which likely would take at least 3 hours, is more likely to cost around $30.

hth!

I think I'm starting to understand now.  So, if I were to do the five point swap I would need to make a large item worth 3 points/hours (or more) and a medium item worth 2 points/hours (or more).  Is that right?
