Age requirement? 18 and older, please

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- 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 posted at least 15 times: YES
- 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

   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
This is a quick and easy swap for Craftsters looking for immediate gratification and fun. You will be paired with one partner and will mail to them one medium crafted item (minimum of 2+ hours of crafting time and/or a $20 value) and one medium (minimum of $20 retail value) supply item. The supply portion of your package doesn't have to be a single item for $20, it can be a combination of items - just make sure the total value adds up to at least $20. If you want to send more, please discuss it with your partner first so there are no surprises and/or regrets about not sending enough in return.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A VERY SHORT CRAFTING TIME. Do not sign up if you have any hesitation about mailing your package on time.

To keep things simple, this is a Senders Choice swap. This means that while you should make sure that you aren't sending your partner something she'll hate, you also doesn't have to stalk her for hours to find that perfect item. However, this does not mean that the crafted item you send can be crappy - it still needs to be a good, quality, well-crafted item. (And don't forget that this swap may just be a great way to get rid of that righteously awesome scarf/artwork/necklace/screened tee/tote you've got in your craft closet that just hasn't found the right home yet.)

This is my first swap as an organizer and I'm going to be a stickler (mainly because it'll help keep me on track, but also because I'm secretly a control freak). Please make sure you post at least once in this discussion thread and keep up with the discussion as that is where I'll post any announcements. You need to pm your partner at least three times - once when you find out who your partner is, once when you send to your partner, and once when you receive from your partner. If you know that posting photos may be a difficulty for you for any reason, please let your partner know when you're matched up so that she can take photos for you. No late send-outs except for unanticipated emergencies, please!

Make sure you pm me and your partner when you send your item, and if you're sending within the US, please include the DC#, too. And please include "Senders Choice Swap" in the title of all your pms - thank you in advance!



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer - PLEASE TITLE YOUR PM "SENDERS CHOICE SWAP - SIGNUP":

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
