Details of Swap:
Who doesn't love to talk about themselves?  For this swap, you will come up with approximately 100 facts about yourself.  You can include tidbits like favorite colors, themes, patterns, or completely random stuff.  Coming up with 100 facts may seem rather daunting, however once you start, it becomes surprisingly easy  Smiley!  Your partner will then craft for you based on the 100 facts.  You may also want to include a short little note or letter explaining the items.  This swap also has a nice and long crafting time  Smiley.

Discussion thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302558.0

This is a 5 point swap:
3 pts = large
2 pts = medium
1 pt =  small

**Your package can include any number or size of items as long as they add up to at least 5 points**
(Spoiling is perfectly acceptable, as long as it is agreed upon by both partners  Wink)

And here are the Craftster guidelines for item sizes:
LARGE:  3 or more hours, $30 or more (a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse)
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet)

Please remember this is a general guideline only, and you must use your own judgment on this. If it takes you three hours to make a simple paper bookmark, you're not going to want to count that as a large item!

Other Swap Info:

**Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for all US packages.  International Swappers must retain copies of their shipping receipts.
**Feedback will be given once your partner receives and posts pictures.  (Remember to take pictures before you send just in case your partner is unable to take pictures.)
**Please post in the thread at least once a week.  Even if you can only muster "Still here!"  This will let me know you're alive and still kicking.
**One week before the sendout date, I will be PM everyone to make sure everything is going smoothly.  If you will be sending late, please make both myself and your partner aware.

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

Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?  YES/NO
Confirm that are at least 16 years old (YES/NO)

Please list approximately 100 facts about yourself....

Is there anything you do not want to receive?

Do you have any allergies -- craft, environment, or food?
Do you have any allergens in your crafty area/home?

Are you stalkable? (Please share links to your wist, blog, etsy, facebook, myspace, etc):
Is there anything else you'd like your partner to know?

Other important information to remember:

**GALLERY: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=309722.0

**Due to the size of this swap, communication will be tracked through PM's.  The post above shows which organizer you have been assigned.  Each week, you will receive a PM from that person, just to make sure that you are still around.  Please respond to them as soon as you can (even if it's only "I'm still here," "50% done," "Still stalking," etc.

**I also encourage everyone to post in the thread as well, because that just makes it more fun!  Cheesy

**Please PM both your partner and the organizer (me!) the DC# when you ship your package.

**If you live in the USA, you MUST get a DC# when you ship.
**If you live outside the USA, you MUST get and keep a copy of your shipping receipt.

**Remember to take pictures before you send, just in case your partner cannot.

**Please post pictures of the items that you receive!  Half the fun of swapping is seeing what everyone makes.  Cheesy

**If you need anything at all or have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me!
