In this swap, we will be celebrating Twilight in 2 ways.  First, we will celebrate the New Moon movie premiere.  And second, we will be celebrating the holidays with twi-treats.  We will be sending out 2 packages.  You can choose to participate in both or just one of the sendouts.

New Moon Movie Premiere Sendout is Nov. 7 (1 large, 1 small)
Twilight Holiday Treats Sendout is Dec. 7 (1 large, 1 medium, 1 small)


...
Examples of Sizes
  • Large: 3 hours or more; $30 or more in value, shawl, shirt, project tote, apron, set of pillowcases, set of tea towels, large stuffie
  • Medium: 2 hours but no more than 3 hours to complete, $15-$30 in value, necklace, belt, bracelet, scarf, deluxe pincushion
  • Small: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete, $5-$15 in value, pouch, stickers, earrings, bookmark

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it just gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

Personal Messages (PMs)
  • Please label PMs to organizer with title of "twilight swap".
  • When you send, label PM as "SENT: twilight swap". (don't forget to include your DC#).  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.
  • When you receive, label PM as "RECEIVED: twilight swap".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.

Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
  • SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send.  When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives.  PM organizer and partner when you send.
  • RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
  • FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not)  *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*  NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.

YOU MUST BE ABSOLUTELY DEDICATED TO THIS SWAP; IT NEEDS A LOT OF TIME AND CARE INPUTTED. PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING UP.

Oh, I want to mention before we get to far in that your Twi-Holiday does NOT have to just be holiday items (though they could be)....think of Twi-Holiday Treats like Twilight presents for your partner.

Also, you can self-partner, but you must tell me who you are partnering with prior to close of signups.

Finally, if you haven't done so, check out the newly revised swap guidelines.  Minimum swapping age has been raised to 16 years old (if you are younger & swapped before, contact mods for approval).  And there is a defined deadline on feedback.  Everyone will have feedback 2 weeks after sendouts.  If you are late and will not send until after the 2 weeks, then you will receive negative feedback which will be reversed once your package has arrived.

Oh me too!  I'm glad we could wrap 2 swaps in one!  I haven't decided if I'm going to do just the holiday sendout or both the movie premier & holiday.  Luckily, I have a few days to ponder that.

I'm still awaiting feedback from my other swap but I'm going to go ahead and sign up.

Is it November yet? I swear my little ♥ can't take the wait any longer. Wink
