Details of swap:

This is an adult themed alcohol & cocktail swap. This is a 5 point swap. You may not swap anything that is alcoholic (there are too many rules between states/international to do this, in many cases it is illegal). You may swap alcohol and cocktail related items. Be sure to communicate regularly with your partner and in the swap thread, the more info you give the more your partner will have to craft something you will really love. Be sure to indicate your preferences on types of beverages. Don’t forget to take pictures to share in the gallery! Also remember to PM me and your partner when you send and receive and I will be requiring delivery confirmation in the US for this swap so share the DC # when you send.

Recap:
5 point Swap
Communicate with your partner and in the swap thread
The more info you give your partner the better
Take pictures for posting in the gallery
Get a delivery confirmation number and PM me and your partner when you send and receive
Have fun, and drink responsibly

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



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
Please send via PM to Mandys08 and put “Cocktail” as the subject
Also, this is my first stab at organizing so if the questionnaire seems a bit long/wonky I apologize in advance I cut & paste a bit from other forms.  You can choose not to answer some questions, but the more your partner know the better Smiley

oh, yeah!  I am in for a penny, in for a pound. (A pound of ice that is...)  And the penny skipped off the table in some drinking game and landed in my glass of daiquiri and that meant I hadda DRINK  the thing agin.  And anyway, Jeez, whatever you put in this drink is yummy, it's not too sweet and not too bity.  You know, bity - like it doesnt bite.  No, it doesnt bite, either.  Am I talking too much?  I always talk too much after a couple of preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'drinksdoyoulikemyearringsimadethemlastnightafterseeingsomecoolonesoncraftsteroh'),letmetellyouALLABOUTCRAFTSTER!!!

I guess if they really wanted to they could, but I know some craftster swaps have age limits and I think it would be beneficial to have some *legal* experience with the theme/topic of the swap. Also, the last rounds of these all have these restrictions and i think it would be wise not to encourage underage drinking on the family friendly site

Dont EVER buy Plaid brand Gallery Glass, I have tried twice to etch some stemware and it doesn't work. Sending without. I have quite a few hours into it.  Other items are coming along, just time consuming.

It was a tough start, but I'm getting there with finishing up Mango88's stuff.  Hard to choose...LOL.  Like my last swap, Mandy.  There's a few things I DON'T wanna send away.  But, I guess that's how you know it's good enough to send.  I should be on time.  But I say 'should be', cuz...Murphy's law and all that.   Smiley

Just to check in. Mango88 and Mambosushi are the only people left to receive correct? I know those were international packages so they may take longer.
