Do you know where every clearance rack is?
Are thrift stores your second home?
Does that 40% off coupon from Michaels, JoAnne's, Hobby Lobby burn a hole in your pocket if you don't use it?
How good thrifty of a shopper are you - really?
This swap will challenge you to make your money stretch and to stay within your budget and still make an awesome MEDIUM sized item at the very least!!

Details of swap:

This swap - you have $5 or $10 (US dollars, Canadian Dollars, British Pounds, whatever your currency is) to spend on your partner - please spend every bit of it too - you will be required to send your partner your shopping list and costs!
Overseas particpants - you can spend either the $5 or $10 or the current conversion at time of closing - your choice.


You will craft at least a medium sized craft with what you have bargain shopped - and send all that you acquired to your partner - not everything you hunt down needs to be craftable items or used to make your craft.  Just make sure they are Appropriate for your partner all around.

You can use minimal items from a SMALL bit from your stash - the majority of your item must be made from what you bargain hunted for this swap or that you KNOW how much you spent on it... see detailed questions and answers about stash...

Be considerate of your partner - yeah, you can get 10 packages of ramen noodles or sour apple flavored ring pops at the store - but do you really think your partner will WANT them?  Get to know your partner - part of swapping is making friendships!  Ask questions and/or stalk - do your best to spend your money as wisely as possible and to get things your partner will really want!



If you want to participate, Please send this information to to your organizer (including the questionnaire for your partner!!):
After you do that - please reply to this post so that you will be kept up on the swap.
Do not sign up for this swap if you know that your schedule is too busy for a swap or if you are currently late in any other swap!

Just a little bit out of retirement - you can call it being a temp - or maybe a consultant position Wink
I was just feeling a bit nostalgic and missed organizing.  Feelix did me in talking about how much she has been enjoying organizing - so I had to do one more round - at least.
We all knew it wasn't permanent - I just needed a bit of *me* time which I did get a good healthy dose of Grin so now I can come back for a little bit - but not a massive comeback.   I have been getting mild headaches if I am on Craftster for too long so small doses here  Wink

There is something about organizing that is quite enjoyable! Glad to have you back in the Craftster world.... even for just a small dose here and there!
