Details of swap:

So it is the new year and everyone has goal for what the year is going to look like. So why not help each other out. In this Swap we are asking  people to craft ways to help each other lose weight. This could be making someone a cook book full of healthy eating. Or a notebook to keep track of the exercises you are doing and the food you are eating. Maybe a calendar to keep track of your achievements or a bag to keep your gym clothing in or a yoga mate.  What do you need to help you lose weight?
Sign up this is going to be fun!!
As for the specifics:  this is a  four-point swap .  Swap packages can include any number or size of items as long as they add up to at least 4 points:
3 pts = large
2 pts = medium
1 pt = small

Here are the Craftster guidelines for item sizes:
LARGE:  3 or more hours, $30 or more (a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse)
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet)

These size guidelines are very subjective, so, as always, work with your partner to decide how much to send.  Be sure to agree on the amount of time, money, and effort you want to spend for this swap.    If you or your partner want to make something that requires more time or effort than we usually think of for a large item this point system gives you a little room.  But PLEASE be sure to consult with your partner!   

Throughout the swap, you will be expected to:
* Keep in regular contact with your partner
* PM me and your partner when you send and when you receive.   If you are sending within your own country, you must have a DC# (delivery confirmation number).  Include the DC in your package sent PM to me and your partner.  If you are sending outside of your country and cannot get a tracking number, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping.
* When you receive, post photographs in the gallery

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide for other details about participating in a swap.

Please note that you may not be able to participate in this swap if your swap profile includes:
* ANY negative feedback comments
* poor communication in past swaps
* sending late in past swaps

Also, note that I will begin entering feedback one week after the send-out date.  If you need feedback earlier, please contact me.

If you want to participate, please PM me (SnapsandDrangons) with your questionnaire rather than posting it here.  Please title any PMs for this swap with Help me Lose Weight Swap:  [sign-up / sent / received / question / etc.] THANKS!

Hey Kimberly.

Actually, I've got the healthy eating part down.  I just need to get moving. 

I have a spinal disease, so movement is pretty important to me right now.  Any motivation that I can get will help, I think.  I'm definitely giving this swap a second look.

I'm going to put off signing up for this until the 25th if you don't mind.  I want to make sure I'm still on a roll before I commit.  Crafting healthy stuff for someone else if I've fallen off the wagon already could be depressing.   Wink

But I'm tentatively in.
