IMPORTANT: Remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZERS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 45

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU WILL BE GETTING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP
I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner
- did not follow item amount rule

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT POSTING PHOTOS IS STILL A REQUIREMENT FOR THIS SWAP.  IF YOU CAN'T TAKE PHOTOS, PLEASE MENTION IT TO THE PERSON WHO CLAIMS YOU.

TwiztidBlood - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval.
sunspotted - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

Hi,
I claim zombiecazz for the vampire shoulder bag, chai tea, and funky hair slides for DD.

This is my first claim for this round (1 claim, 0 sent)
This is the first time I've done this, so please let me know if I've messed up Smiley

This is me -
Hello, I'm Sandra from  England.  I live with my daughter, our dog cat,  3 rabbits and lots of other pets.

I love simple, hand crafted things, with their inspiration taken from nature where possible, if not form then colour.  I love muted colours and monochrome or tones of the same colour and although I love colour I don't like them all together as I feel you can't appreciate them fully. 

My favourite colours are green, blue, purple, silver - I dislike pink intensely.

My favourite season is autumn.

My absolute favourite art movement is Art Nouveau.

I dont like flowery floral prints, but bold prints (as in the art nouveau fabrics etc) are OK.

I love heart shapes (not romantic stuff, but bold ones).

I have sensitive skin, so cant use perfumed soaps or bath bombs, bubble bath etc.  I dont smoke and am a strict vegetarian.

I love to recycle and re-use as much as I can.  I am currently collecting thrift shop clothing for a quilt.  If you crafted something recycled for me I would truly love it.

I love seeing what others can craft, and how skilful and resourceful they are.
After a period of ill health I am now able to spend more time crafting, and enjoying doing so when in the past I never had the time, so anything to help me keep organised would be really appreciated.

Thanks for looking at my list, I realise after writing it  that it makes me look incredibly fussy and picky Im not really, Im easily pleased. 

Check out my Wists, theres loads of ideas on there.

WISH LIST
If you should choose to craft for me any of the items below would be fantastic:

ORGANISING & STORING
Bag to organise my crochet items/projects.
Small afghan.
Patchwork or quilted bags to hold/store  things eg pencil case, drawstring bags to store wool, wash bag.
Bookmarks I read loads, and am always looking for bookmarks to keep my place or mark crafts/projects I want to try, so these would be great.
Needle book/organiser.
Pin cushions.
I adore the work of Dick Bruna (especially Miffy) so some little bags or household items with Miffy would be really wonderful.

MY CAT
Cat toys (Paul loves the really small amurugumi I make, and always steals them).

HOME
Quilted  or patchwork place mats or table runner or mats for dishes when on the dining table (a bit like a large place mat or pot holder).

Love quilted pot holders, so a few of these would be most appreciated.

Apron for when I am in the garden, with a large pocket or two on the front..

Placemat for Pauls food bowls.

CRAFTS/SUPPLIES[/color]
Bicone beads crystal, red or black.
Hot fix crystals not rhinestones, any colour (ss 10 or bigger).

I sketch ideas and notes etc, so always have a small sketch pad, pen, pencils etc in my bag.  If I could have some way of organising them, or a folder or something that would be wonderful.  The pads are always small; A5 is massive by my standards for a handbag sketch pad.

Cotton DK for crochet afghans and toys I make.  Am working on an afghan in 100% cotton DK at the moment in cream, denim blue (or similar), dark and navy blue.

Small pieces of fabric (mixed fibres are OK)  for some quilts Im collecting for blues, purples, green, any colour really as only as theyre not really luminous or acid.  They neednt be big, about 4 inches square is plenty big.

Love old prints and fabric depicting  insects, animals, anatomy, architecture.  Any examples of these would be great.

I love old crochet and clothes patterns.  I collect 1970s  craft manuals.
Any old crochet or craft patterns (even photocopied ones if you have favourites youd like to share).

I claim Sandra22 for a patchwork bag to organize stuff, fabric odds and ends and vintage crochet patterns.

Hi!  Im addicted to knitting, though I love many other crafts as well!  A Michigan (USA) native, I am enamored of watery landscapes and northern hardwood forests.  My deepest wish is to live on a lake or river.  I love snow and wintery landscapes, cool colors and corny humor.  I love superheroes and mourn the fact that Im fat and 50 superhero material beyond repair.  ☺  I wist.   

Enough about me:

pottery, especially small bowls or mugs
