My reality check just BOUNCED!

It's that time to purge your stash and get new stuff -
it's FILL-A-BOX time, fulfill that New Years Resolution and clear out some of the extra craft supplies crammed into every nook and crany of your house!!  Ladies, this will make yours husbands happy and your partner happier.


Swap name: Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 11 (aka: US Flat Rate Box Swap)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Shadeweaver
Co-Organizer: Unknown as of yet!
Sign-up date range: 1/1/09 to 1/14/09
Date to send item by: 1/30/09

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

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES. This is a Fill a "US Postal Service Flat Rate Box" Swap so unfortunately it is limited to individuals in the U.S. Sorry.

Age Restrictions: Over 13, as stipulated in swapping rules

As a reminder each participant must meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month
- Has posted at least 15 times
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps
- Does not have any negative feedback
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old
**Additionally - each participant must have already received feedback for the previous round of the fill-a-box swap (round 10) if you participated in it.

Details of swap:
Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 11 (US Flat-Rate Box Swap!)

Its that time of the year again, clean out those overflowing baskets, boxes and craft closets.  What better way to spend a cold winter day than purging your craft stash and making room for new supplies and fulfilling that resolution while you do!?!?!

You'll fill a FLAT-RATE US Postal Service rectangular box with as much as you can comfortably jam in and send it to your partner (Don't forget the Delivery Confirmation). Information about USPS flat-rate shipping can be found here: http://www.usps.com/shipping/flatrate.htm?from=priority&page=flatrate

**The $9.80 price is for 2 different flat rate boxes; one is a squarish one and one is a flatter rectangular one. The one that most people use is the flatter rectangular one - I believe that the USPS website calls it a "Shirt Sized Box" or something to that effect. Because a lot of people will send 8.5 x 11 sized books and patterns from time to time, this is the preferred one and that way too everyone is on the same playing field.**

**NOTE: I know that in Round 9 I gave the option for either sized box. However because only 8 people were interested in sending the larger box, this round is ONLY the one size for $9.80**

**NOTE 2: You can use the squarish sized box if you and your partner agree to it, so long as it's the same priced box**

Gently Used supplies are fine, if not encouraged-- take this opportunity to do a little craft purging, the result is a clean(er) craft closet and some fresh ideas/supplies for crafting. However, please make sure that you are sending something that you also wouldn't mind receiving. Supplies - even those gently used - should be in good clean condition. Personally, when it comes to my own stash if I question the quality I go by this motto: "When in doubt, throw it out". If you wouldn't use it because you think it's in poor condition, chances are someone else will feel the same way.

Because of the special type of box (only $9.80 plus delivery confirmation) this is limited to US participants only. There IS the option to sign up to send 2 boxes; please make note of that in your questionnaire. Also, the threads for this swap tend to have heavy traffic, so the use of the PM is extremely important to communicate with your organizer(s). Please be sure to PM your organizer(s) and your partner each time you send and receive. Also - I can't guarantee that I'll be able to pair you up with someone you "claim" on the thread or any supplies that are you post on the thread. I'll do the best I can to keep up though!

Sign-ups will run from 1/1/09 to 1/14/09. Partners will be paired and sent by midnight at 1/16/09 at the absolute latest.

If you want to participate, here is the information to send to Shadeweaver (the organizer):

It's not ... It's open to everyone.  However, that is a standard line for when we get back to the monthly rotation of this swap.  You will have to have finished up with the previous one before you can sign up for the next months.

In other words, if you are in this one, you will have to finish it and get feedback before you can sign up for round 12.

Blessings!

Still have a LARGE quantity of items to give, hope to find more along the way as I clean my craft room.  It's been in a whirlwind since prepping and creating over the holidays these past couple months.  I think I may be ready to get back into swapping Smiley  Will send an app along soon!
