Details of Swap:

It's almost that that time...spring! March 20th marks the first day of spring for 2009, and Easter is on April 12th. So let's celebrate! This is a medium sized Spring Easter swap, and I'll match partners to each other who'd like to focus on more of the religous aspects, or more on the non religious happy spring aspects. Bunnies, baby
chicks, chocolates, robins eggs, lambs, flowers...lets craft spring!

This is a 3 point swap. There is great information on what the sizes/points mean at the Swap Info Guide Here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.0

LARGE item = 3 points
MEDIUM item = 2 points
SMALL item = 1 point

There is a little over 3 weeks for crafting time, but if people are saying there is not enough time, I'll lower the points  Smiley You and your partner can agree to craft more then that, just make sure you are both communicating, and you both agree.

Please post at least once a week in this thread so I can make sure everyone is still here and active, if you do not show good communication, it will be noted in your feedback.

Delivery Confirmation is required if you live within the US. If you are international, please retain your receipt so you can prove your package was shipped, if it goes missing. Please PM both Starfishsea and your partner the DC # when you ship.

Partners will be assigned and posted on Thursday March 12th. I will also PM everyone with their partners questionnaire.

Would love to join, but just wanted to clarify..

LARGE item = 2 points
MEDIUM item = 1 points
SMALL item = 1 point

Should the medium and small be the same?

I changed it to 3, 2, 1 instead. It's a quick swap so I think this should be ok unless anyone objects Smiley

I was focusing on the Easter part of the swap before that I forgot about the Spring part. I live in a country where it is summer ALL YEAR THROUGH so I don't really know if I'd know how to make "Spring crafts"  Undecided

Focus on Easter then!  Grin Easter and spring are a lot of the same....little bunnies, chicks, flowers...I just added "spring" to broaden the Easter part Smiley

I extended the send out date by a few days, since a few people were concerned about the time limit. But everything should still get there by Easter!  Grin
