Swap name: Decorate My Themed Room Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: DragonFly4
Sign-up date range: 06/08/09 – 06/23/09 or until we reach 24 people
Date to send item by: 08/03/09

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Age requirement? Must be at least 13

- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: NO
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

Do you live in a house or apartment that could use some crafted goodness to enliven the atmosphere?
Do you have specific color schemes, themes, patterns, etc. that you feel you cant ask a swap partner for because it is too structured or you feel you are being too picky or demanding ?
Well… this is the swap for you.

Participants will be making decorative items for their partner’s home.  Items will be based off of specific guidelines (theme, colors, pattern, texture, fabric line, etc.) that your partner specifies.  Items can include (but are not limited to): artwork, wall hangings, pillows/cushions, tableware, towels, embroidery, candles, frames, wind chimes, mobiles, organizers, bulletin boards, throws, rugs, photography, magnets, coasters, jewelry organizers, soap and anything else decorative you can come up with!  

For this swap we will do
1 large
1 Medium
2 smalls
 however I strongly recommend partners discuss between themselves maybe you would like 5 large......it is up to you whatever you are comfortable with.
*Partners please let me know if you are changing the guidelines so I can make note.

You are required to PM a valid tracking or Delivery Confirmation # to your partner and organizers when you send, (or get a customs form number or receipt copy if you are sending out of country.)

You are required to post photos of the items you received in the swap gallery.  Everybody loves seeing photos of all the goodies and your partner deserves recognition for the time and effort they spent crafting for you.  

You are required to post in the swap thread at least once a week.   It would be fun for everyone to post a picture of the room their partner is crafting for.   If you don’t post one in the thread please send your partner a picture of the room!  It will make it much easier on your partner and will help ensure that you receive something that is crafted to match your room’s existing décor.

If you have any questions/concerns at all about the swap please don't hesitate to contact your organizer.

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

Name of swap- Decorate My Themed Room Swap

What room or rooms would you like your partner to help decorate? (Please include colors, furniture in the room and a description of the overall style of the room ie. themes like trees, apples, deer.....etc.)  This is where you get to be VERY specific.

What would you LOVE to have made for the room of your choice? (Please list at least five ideas – examples/links are always helpful too!)

What  do you NOT want to receive?
Please describe a little about yourself and your decorating style:

I thought the standard age requirement for swapping was 13? I have a friend who wants to join, but she's only 16...

The absolute minimum age to swap is 13...organizers can limit participation to swappers over a certain age, if they so choose.

I'm absolutely joining this when I get a spot open. I love my themed rooms, but they don't get much crafty attention!

I definitely would love to join this. I have to wait till my swap status is clear.

Oh I am keeping my eye on this swap...perhaps if feedback gets back in time (I have to many must swaps coming up)...if not I will look for round 2.

I think I want to do this one. As soon as I get some feedback so that a slot opens up I will send in my questionairre.

I have been thinking lately that I need to limit swaps to things I can use around the house. Then I joined the OTT swap, but hey....thats ok bc its just OTT. But this....well this is perfect. Just need to decide if I have the energy to jump into a bigger swap.
