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!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Canadians Only Swap Two
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Your 10 favourite things they can be food, movies, colours, celebrities, music, animals, places, anything YOU would love to receive in craft form!: 
Information that would help someone with the Wearables swap your size, style, etc:
Information that would help someone with the Housewares swap your decorating style:
Your favourite decade of the 1900s:
Will you be wanting a new person each month?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE!

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

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?

Hey all swappers! 

Just a reminder to email me before the end of today with a list of other Canadian swappers you have already swapped with...only if you're interested in swapping with people you've never swapped with before of course!   If you don't email me I'll match you up with anyone.

AND.......I'll have everyone's first set of partners ready for the end of the weekend!

happy crafting!

hey everyone! 

I mailed out the swap info for APRIL PARTNERS ONLY today.  The theme of this month to fill at leat an 8 1/2 X 11 envelope (feel free to do more though) of things that are based on your partner's favourite things in life, which you now know.  I realise i have included the information for all of the months, but I thought it would help (Ie.  say you want to make a tee with your partners fave band on it - now you know their size).  Remember to ship by the end of the month, or on May 2nd at the latest.  Happy crafting everyone!

Well I doubt mine will fit 'safely' in an 8x10 envelope, so I'm putting everything in a small box *shrugs* somethings you just can't ship in a bubble envelope  Sad

hey everyone! 

i hope your crafting is going well everyone!  we've got one problem - one of our swappers has had to drop out for reasons beyond her control.  i dont want to ask someone to make an entire new package for the unlucky person whose partner left.... but i was wondering if some people would be willing to pick up one or two of the favourite things from the list? you could choose! please PM me if you're interested! thanks in advance to everyone who helps out!

Hey everyone - I've heard from most of you about the status of your packages, thanks so much for letting me know what's going on! I'll be making up the partners for this month (theme: wearables) later today and I'll get them to you as soon as possible.  I'll also be starting up a thread in the gallery to see what lovely goodies people recieved this month.  happy crafting!

I received my stuff yesterday - I'll take pics and post them later today.

Also, I'm hoping to send mine today. I couldn't send any earlier because my mom is getting sick again and we need to watch her. Sad I've already told my swap partner for this month.

Alright !

I've PMed everybody now with all of their partners for the rest of the swap.  As long as no one is deemed a flaker, that's how it will go.  Please let me know if I've made any mistakes or there are any problems.  Also, PM me to tell me that there aren't any problems, if that is the case. 

And remember to post in the gallery and thank your partners personally when you recieve your packages!

okay. Im sorry, but I think emerald6 has officially flaked. Ive talked to one of the moderators, and if everyones cool with it, Ill take over the swap and try to update everyones feedback. Theres only one month left, so if we can manage to get everything straightened out, I can organize the last month.

I hope thats okay with everyone. If its not, please let me know, and we can see what we can work out.

Ive tried to go back through the original swap thread and the gallery thread and figure out what happened every month. emerald6 posted the partner list for the first two months, and after that i had to rely on posts people made.This is what I found. PLEASE PM me with any corrections, or if you can fill in any of the blanks. and i'm not sure if i've missed any sets of partners, because unless at least one of the partners posted, i had no way of knowing about it.

hopefully we can figure out some swap angel stuff if neccessary once this list is completely finished.

For those of you who are sending this month, can you please let me know when you send and receive?
