Swedish craftster!

Hej alla swappare i Sverige!

Back in 2006 there was a swap for Swedish Craftsters, but that was long before I found Craftster... So I thought, how about a second round? There has been some talk about it over on the Scandinavian/Nordic board, but hopefully more people will see it posted here. I know there are lots of  swedes lurking around this place... Come join in!

So this would be a swap for people who live in Sweden only. As a swedish swapper you do A LOT of international sending, so this would make a nice change! It's also a great opportunity to get to know each other better.

Here's a link to the first Swedish swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=103125.0) and to the gallery of that swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=108006.0).
 
I thought we could make it a 5 point swap (a large item is 3 points, a medium is 2 points, and a small is 1 point. The usual Craftster size rules apply) and  like in round one we could list 5 or 10 themes or wishlist items. For example, my list could be:
1. A cosmetic bag
2. The color blue
3. Mermaids
4. Owls
5. A scarf
And then my partner could choose whether to use one of the themes for all their items (for example making a mermaid themed package) or choose different ones  (for example making a scarf, a cosmetic bag and a mermaid magnet) or even to combine them (one of the items could be a blue cosmetic bag with an owl on it, for example). Does that make sense? It would be similar to the One Tiny Thing swaps, if anyone's done one of them before. Just with more items! Smiley

I'd be up for organizing, and I thought we could start around the middle of August. What do you think?
Is there any interest in a second Sweden swap?

I would definitely join! I have done one Swedish swap before on sysidan.se, but never a Swedish craftster swap.

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

I haven't been in a swap before and it would have been fun, but I'm very busy right now and August is too early for me... If it started in September at the earliest I might be able to join. If you change the date would you please PM me? I will probably forget to check this thread Smiley I hope others can join though!

When it's 1 am and you can see dancing elephants in the texture of your carpet, it's probably time to go to bed...

I'm not at all sure about this. August is crammed for me anyway. Maybe if it got to be in september.

I'd join too! I haven't done any organized swaps before, so it'll be fun to try it. September works better for me than august.
