Details of swap:
This is a “light” summer swap for hair accessories.  Everyone will get a small group of partners and will make a hair accessory of some sort for everyone else in their group.  For example, if you were in a group of 5 people, you would make & send 4 hair doo dads and get 4 in return.  Hair accessories can include headbands, hats, barrettes, decorated chop sticks, hats, clips, hair scarves…anything to add a little sparkle to your hair!  The size of the group will depend on the number of signups.  However, it will be no more than 5 people.   You only have to send one hair accessory to each partner - that's it.  If you want to send more, that is up to you & your partner(s).

Although this is an easy swap, please make sure to put some effort into making something your partner would like.  Make sure it is something that you would enjoy receiving and wearing.  Because it is an easy swap, the send date is 2 weeks after you get your partner.  No DC is required because these will probably be mostly in envelopes, but please be prepared to send a replacement if your item gets lost.  

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

I think I just might have to take this. Even though the 2 weeks seems a bit short for me (I always take my time gathering supplies, especially now that me and my stash 300km apart), being a lazy crafter. But I'm already thinking all the pretty things I could make for people... Smiley I think I'll just fill my questionnaire and then see...!

I think it's a bit weird, the one thing for one thing in return
for example: A headband and 1 clip aren't on the same level
maybe like: 1 headband = 2 clips = 1 hairbarrettes = 1 hair scarf = ... = and a hat is more points? don't you think?
or some sort of list?

I think it depends on what goes into each item.  The effort for a clip might be less than a headband, but the materials might cost more or a lot of detail might go into it.  Or a headband could involve a lot of work if it's an intricate crochet or has embroidery versus a floppy bucket hat.  That's why I asked to be sure to send what you think is an appropriate amount of work.  Plus, I wanted to just keep it easy since there are so many variables. 

I'd say use good judgement.  If you feel like a clip didn't take much effort, then feel free to send two.  There is no penalty for going above & beyond, but the minimum is one item.  Smiley

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.
