Swap name: Canadians Only - Swap Two
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: emerald6
Sign-up date range: March 18th -April 3rd
Date to send item by: First shipment April 30 (Well always ship on the last day of the month)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yep - Canadians only!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? 16+

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: I know the rules!

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: Of course! (NOTE: Some people have expressed interest but wont be members of 1 month for awhile as long as youve been a member for 1 month as of April 30, youre in!)

Details of swap: Tired of No non-US participants allowed? Me too! So, this swap will be for Canadian Crafters ONLY!  The Swap will be officially organized for shipments from April to August and well see where it goes from there. Each month youll be matched up with a new partner and send them an 8 X 11 envelope full of goodies.  You can include supplies or other non-crafted things, but at least 3 things each month must be crafted!  Most months will have a loose theme to inspire us:

April: Your partners favourite things Youll see below that Ive asked for you to list 10 things you like the challenge is to create a package of things your partner would love! You dont have to do all ten, you just gotta fill up that envelope!
May: The wearables month clothes, jewelery, purses, etc.
June: House wares pillow cases, picture frames, pictures, clocks, etc.
July: Retro Flashback month! Send an envelope full of stuff based on your partners favourite decade! Also: This month, try to send a CD!
August: No theme for this month, your choice!

One last thing: I know a lot of us Canadians get paired up together more than once and for this swap Id think it would be great to have brand new partners each time.  If youre interested, Ill keep an updated list of who has signed up and please PM me the people youve already swapped with before.  You dont have to do this only if you want to!

Wait one last final thing If maybe youre only interested in doing one or two of the months, you can just tell me in your PM.   But I encourage you all to try all 5 months!

Is anyone worried about only having 2 weeks between receiving lists and shipping?  Or is it only people with exams then?  I really want to join this swap, but I don't know if I can get stuff out by the 30th if I only find out what my partner likes by the 15th. Sad

i'm really excited about this swap, but i think i agree with crazy_bc_jen. 15 days really doesn't seem like much time after we find out who our partner is.

could the sign up end earlier maybe? even if you ended it April 2 or 3rd, that's still two weeks for sign up, but it would give people more time. or if the sign up sended April 10ish, 3 weeks for sign up and three weeks to make stuff?
