Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have 1 WEEK to send them out! So once you know you are approved, start craftin!
If you have a pre-made item, GREAT! This means youre ready to go and weve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up til signups close! Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 11/16
so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts. If you do not post a picture by this date or at all, it will be noted in your feedback, as this IS a requirement for this swap to be a success.Drawing will be done on 11/17
, PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.
Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.
This will be a 'raffle' style swap. There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn! An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door! Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (i.e.-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle/etc. issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up.
When a winner is chosen, the creator of their prize will get their address from the organizer in a PM. PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the winner will be surprised with their prize when it arrives Please communicate in the thread OR by PM to the organizer ONCE a week
at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap. If I have not seen you posting in the thread, this will be reflected in your feedback. I will check in with you when there is about 1 week left to make sure you are still in on a prize for the drawing.
Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap. For international mailings, please retain your receipt until your partner receives.
Please PM the DC to the organizer, TheSapphireMoon, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and maintain my records. For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed. If it never arrives after a reasonable amount of time, a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable prize for the winner.
Feedback will be given when your partner has received. Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!
Negative feedback will be given if you have not sent out by 2 weeks past the sendout date, and an angel will be found for your winner. Seeing as this is a premade craft raffle, and you have to have a completed item posted before the drawing
I dont see this happening for anyone
but you never know what life has in store for you from one day to the next!
I will post a gallery for prizes so when the winner receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great prize.
