- 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
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

For this swap you may either make something that is on your partners wists or something based on something from their wists. For instance, if someone had lots of cat items on their wist then you could send them something with cats.  Or you could make something in the style of something on their wist. For this swap a variety of items is also strongly encouraged, don't put 80 sewn skirts on there! Make sure there are a variety of knit, crocheted, sewn, polymer clay,  jewlery, handmade yarn and paper crafted items That way you wont have to worry if you dont know how to do a certain type of craft it is okay to use your partners wist as inspiration. It will be a lot easier to craft for someone, and a lot easier for the organizer to match people up!  

Before you sign up make sure to go through and edit your wists, take off things you already have or don't want anymore. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a wists account to join this swap.  You must have a minimum of 80 items in your wists account.  At least 60 of those items must craftable. However, more than the minimum amount is strongly encouraged.  
 
Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner 6 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
 
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:  

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
 
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.
 
Rules:
 
All participants must check in at least once a weeek by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner.
Be aware of the comments section on wists, someone might add something and you go to make it, but didnt notice in their comments that they would only want that item in a different color.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.

I've sent my questionnaire! I just barely missed the last wists swap and was super bummed. This one is perfect, though. I adore long crafting times, and sendouts are the day after my birthday! It's like someone will be crafting a birthday package for me from my wish list.  Grin I can't wait!!

Don't have enough brain power right now to complete the questionnaire, but definitely interested.  Hopefully I'll get to it this weekend.
