Details of Swap:

Do you collect things from different countries? Want to start collecting something? Maybe you just want cool stuff from some other country? In this swap, you will swap the equivalent of TWO MEDIUM ITEMS. For the first medium, you will send non-crafted things from your international partner based on what they collect or are interested in. The second medium will be a crafted item that is either related to the non-crafted item(s) you sent or the country youre from.  This should be a fun and easy swap for everyone!

Heres a list of some things you may want to request for your non-crafted items:
things to collect: coins, stamps, t-shirts, postcards, snow globes, little tourist trinkets
other things that might interest you: food items, candies, patriotic fabric, craft supplies not found in your country, cook books, politically-related items (things depicting a president or monarch), patriotic or culturally relevant beads, common household items that might be very different in another country, books in other languages, CDs from musicians important to another countrys culture.

We will be using the craftster standard for what a medium is:
by time: 2-3 hours of crafting
by size: one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
by price: $10-30

If you would like to send more or less, talk to your partner and make sure they are agreeable to this. Your mediums can be more than one item. If you have any questions about what is and isnt a medium, please ask!

Communication is VERY important in this and all swaps. Please post here at least once a week, even if its just a quick note to let us know that youre still alive. Be sure to also pm your partner and keep that communication going. Poor communication will be noted in your feedback.

***SHIPPING INFORMATION: Please keep in mind that because this is an international swap, shipping costs will be higher than you may have spent in other swaps. Do NOT sign up for this swap if you are not able to pay for shipping or if you will not be able to get to a post office to ship your package on time.  If you are shipping outside of the US, as most/all of you will be, and cannot obtain a tracking number, you MUST hold on to you shipping receipt. Should your package go missing, a clear picture of this receipt (must say your partners city and country) will be required in order to avoid negative feedback.***

Please PM your questionnaire to me with the swap name and questionnaire in the subject line. You should also PM me (and your partner) when you have sent your package and when you have received a package. Again, please use the swap name and sent or received in the subject line.


Questionnaire:

Name of swap: International Interests Swap

Email address:
Your real name and mailing address (including your country):

As an FYI, - AusPost receipts will show the country, but not the city of destination.

This sounds like a lot of fun!  I have to check and see if it'll be in my budget to ship internationally, otherwise I'll have to wait for another round.

 Oooooh, I'd LOVE to join! I'm more for the 'edibles' though, would that be ok?! I'm a huge candy freak, and would love to trade goodies with someone from another country!! Postcards are definitely another thing I love to collect, so you're most likely gonna see my questionaire in the next few days! Grin

I'm glad you did! I'm hoping that shipping won't be that much, considering that we're only sending two mediums. Smiley

Trading edibles would be just fine! I'm hoping for some international goodies as well. I have such a sweet tooth!
