Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? 13+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:

- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

- Participant lives in the United States:

   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

"Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver." -bumper sticker

"Dance as if no one is looking, work as if you didn't have to, and love as if you've never been hurt." -author unknown

"Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow." -Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet)

"It's time we opened up a can of whoop tooshie on this situation." -Marge (The Simpsons)

"And what in the name of Merlins most baggy Y Fronts was that about?" -Ron Weasley (Harry Potter)

Do you have a particular quote that you live your life by? Ever have a line of a song run through your head a million times a day? Do you and your friends have an running inside joke that you will never forget? This swap is for you! We are going to craft FIVE points worth of items for this swap inspired by our favorite quotes. Make a tote declaring "Snape kills Dumbledore!", create an awesome shirt stenciled with Beatles' lyrics, the possibilities are endless.

This means you have options!  You can craft 1 large and 1 medium, or 1 large and 2 smalls, or 1 medium and 3 smalls.  No more than 3 of your 5 points may be small items.

If you and your partner agree to craft more than the required number of points, that is fine.  Just make sure it is agreed upon between the two of you! It is always a fantastic idea to have good communication with your partner!

Likewise, you MUST have good communication in this swap. PLEASE remember to check-in with the thread (this means posting to let us know you're still on board) roughly once a week.  If you do not show good communication, it will be noted in your feedback.   

This swap, like most swaps on Craftster, requires a Delivery Confirmation number if you and your partner both live in the U.S.  If that is not the case, please retain your receipt so you can prove that you shipped, should your package go missing.  If you and your partner both live in the U.S., you must PM the delivery confirmation number to both your partner and your organizer once you ship. And you are more than welcome to ship early if you've finished early! 

Note: I am a first time organizer so please have patience with me if I seem like a chicken with it's head cut off  Wink I'm excited to get this swap on the ball!

Points are as follows:
Large - 3 points
Medium - 2 points
Small - 1 point

Sizes are described as:

By Time
Big - 3 or more hours
Medium - 2 or more hours
Little - 2 or less hours

By Size
Big - A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
Medium - one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Have to send out and finish up my first swap, but if all goes well I think I'll be signing up for this. What a cool idea!

awesome! There's plenty of time to sign up. If it comes down to it, you can always ask the organizer of the other swap to see if you could get feedback early  Cheesy

Quotes can come from anywhere! Inside jokes, great books, songs, etc etc. This is definitely not only limited to movies.

This sounds like fun!  I will think definitely be thinking about it!  I put myself on a crafting hiatus due to other things in life getting in the way and I want to make sure I can get this done!

Books and songs are easy for me, but I'm older than most craftsters, so a totally different era.

Have to think it over for awhile.
