Swap name:  Elements Swap Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: RondaS
Sign-up date range: July 19 to July 25, partners July 26
Date to send item by: Sept 8th (long crafting time so hope that works for everyone! I am hoping for lots of early sending but thought to give everyone that holiday weekend we have in America here to tie up loose ends)

link to the currently nekked and empty gallery thread
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314565.0

please don't reserve spots in the gallery or I won't know when you have posted photos since I use the notify tool - just post pics when you get your package so I can mark you off on my lists


Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nah - why be restrictive!
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? Over 13 - please testify you are at least 13 to fulfill Craftster swap requirement, if you are under 18 please get your parent's permission

Details of swap:
This swap is all about the elements: Earth, Air, Water, and Fire!  

Alternative belief systems include the three elements of Earth, Wind and Sea, the four Winds (North, South, East, West) which are also associated with elements, or the 5 elements of Earth, Wind, Water, Fire and Storm/Spirit and individuals wanting to receive items for those alternative systems are welcome to join in!


We will be crafting for this swap the equivalent of a large, a medium and two smalls or if you want to consider in a point system that would be around 7 or 8 points.

guide and examples from the info list by Leah:
By Time
-Big/3 points = 3 or more hours
-Medium/2 points = 2 or more hours
-Little/1 point = 1 or less hours

By Size
-Big/3 points = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium/2 points = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small/1 point = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, magnets

By Price
-Big/3 points = $30 or more
-Medium/2 points = $10-$30 dollars
-Small/1 point = $10 or less

when working things out by points, I usually look at time and price and ignore size unless I am sending international - just a hint  Smiley

Just work that out with your partners, and don't send a whole lot of smalls unless your partner wants a smorgasboard of earrings or something, LOL! Let me know if you think you need to have someone know what you and your partner have agreed to.

The entry has a question about which style of elements you prefer - and please indicate that. Everyone is to craft at least one item for every element in their partners preferred elemental grouping!
  
For some great ideas on what you could craft check round one here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276971.0

OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
PM the organizer and your partner when you both send and receive.  If you are sending within US you need to get a DC# or tracking number.  If you are sending internationally you must have proof of shipment in either a receipt or customs number.

We want to see all your goodies so if you don't have a digital camera please get your partner to take pics for you.

Please keep good communication with your partner.  

There will be check-ins that will be done via PM. Also, everyone must send the organizer a PM or post at least once a week on the thread.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
