Details of swap:

Its that time of year again!  4th of July has become much, much more than just Independence Day to those of us in the USA.  While still traditionally being centered around red, white and blue, and all things patriotic, we all have our own spin on the holiday if we do something to celebrate or just get together with friends and/or family.  For me and mine, its all about the fireworks and a big BBQ with the lot of us!  Craft one medium item around the 4th of July and what it means to you.

***THIS IS A US ONLY ROUND!!!  PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT ROUND OF THE FOCR IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE OF THE US.***

FRIENDS OF CRAFTSTER ONLY, PLEASE!

Not a Friend of Craftster? Join here! Support the website that supports your crafting needs  Grin

http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php


Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have 1 WEEK to send them out! So once you know you are approved, start craftin!

If you have a pre-made item, GREAT! This means youre ready to go and weve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up til signups close!

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 6/23 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.  If you do not post a picture by this date or at all, it will be noted in your feedback, as this IS a requirement for this swap to be a success.

Drawing will be done on 6/24 , PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.  

This will be a 'raffle' style swap. There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn! An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door! Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (ie-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up.

When a winner is chosen, the creator of their prize will get their address from the organizer in a PM. PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the winner will be surprised with their prize when it arrives  Cheesy

Please communicate in the thread ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap. If I have not seen you posting in the thread, this will be reflected in your feedback.   I will check in with you when there is about 2 weeks left to make sure you are still in on a prize for the drawing.

Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap.

Please PM the DC to the organizer, me TheSapphireMoon, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and maintain my records. For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed, and if it never arrives a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable prize for the winner.

Feedback will be given when your partner has received.  Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!

I will post a gallery for prizes so when the winner receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great prize.

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

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

Hmmm, I have to think if I can come up with something for this theme.  It seems pretty broad though with the 'you' in there.  Smiley   So I am guessing that something that I'm good at (or reflects me in some way) in white, red or white and red would be ok for the theme?  

Edited to add.....

Oh, I just saw this, so it has to also reflect the 4th in some way too?  hmmm...

Basically, red white and blue themed items are exactly part of the theme for 4th of July...and the Red White and YOU them title is to indicate the craft is centered around YOU and how YOU celebrate 4th of July Smiley  That's why I put the grillin' comment in there about BBQ with my family, and fireworks...so I could easily make a 'kiss the cook' apron or something like a tote lined with fireworks fabric, etc.

Make more sense now?

This looks like it could be a fun swap.  I'll put on my thinking cap and see what I come up with for the celebration in me. 

Since I'm sort of a Yankee Doodle Dandy, (My birthday is actually on the 6th and my mother's is on the 4th), most of our celebrating centers on home and family.  So I'd probably make something in the housewares category.

I'm not ready for another one yet.  Ok, with that said, I can think of my theme just not yet how to best execute the theme (what on earth will I craft).  I'm thinking....
