Swap name: Altered Puzzle Swap Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: bunnyface
Sign-up date range: October 21 - 31
Partners posted by: November 1
First sendout date (blank puzzle pieces): November 9
Second sendout date (decorated puzzle pieces): December 15


Krafty_Karasus finished puzzle after Round 1.  Pretty isnt it?

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Additional Age requirement? 16

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- 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
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES

DETAILS OF SWAP:
Each participant will have their own puzzle to start with.  You will be in one or two groups of four or five people. You are going to send one blank piece to each of your partners, then your partners will decorate them and send them back.  You will also receive one puzzle piece from each of your partners.  You will decorate the puzzle pieces and send them back to their original owner.  If you and your partners agree, you can always swap more than one piece, but please remember that you will be swapping with multiple partners.

Obviously when you are decorating the puzzle piece you would not want to put anything that would get in the way of the other pieces. You can have a theme that your partners decorate the puzzle piece on, or you can make it artist choice.

I cannot guarantee that I will be able to make groups within one country (I will do my best if you specify that you would rather ship within your own country).  Since you should be able to ship in a letter envelope the postage for this swap should be fairly inexpensive, even though we mail twice, so please do not join this swap if you cannot ship internationally.

Since you will be sending your own puzzle pieces out, you will not need to have the same puzzle as everyone else, and it doesnt matter how many pieces you have. There will be more rounds and you/friends/family can decorate the other pieces.

Delivery Confirmation is not required for this swap, since it is easy to send in a regular letter envelope. But realize that if your puzzle piece does not make it to its destination, you will have to send another.

Helpful Hints Learned in Round 1 (Ususally the hard way):
-You can use a blank puzzle or a new/used puzzle.  Some really neat blank puzzles can be found here.
-Photos, photos, photos! Take photos, if you're able, before, during, and after. It keeps a good record (for you) of your work and if pieces do go missing, you have reference for the next pieces. Also, you can post if your partner is unable.
Before you send:
-Put your unaltered puzzle together and number the pieces before sending.  It will make putting your altered puzzle together much easier (unless youre up for the challenge!).
-Trace or photocopy your puzzle pieces so that you have a template to make a replacement, and label each template with the partner that the piece was sent to, just in case (or buy two of the same puzzle. Then you will have a replacement piece/pieces if one or more go missing).
-Designate which side of your piece is to be altered, and if orientation is important to you, mark it on your piece.
-Put your name/initials and theme, if applicable, on the back of your piece in case of mixups.
-If you are swapping two pieces with your partner, send two that fit together.  Then they can do two separate pieces or connect them for one big piece.
While you are altering:
-When you receive pieces from a partner, keep them in their original envelope, write the theme on the envelope and add your bits of decoration. Then everything is one place.

thank you thank you thank you.  I can't even begin to tell you how truly thankful I am for the send-out date.  I will be joining here in a minute, but I do want to let everyone know here and in my questionnaire that I am actually having a second surgery on my left shoulder on November 9th and I'm not 100% sure how long it will be before I can move my arm again.  but this should definitely give me plenty of time.  if not, I may have to be a few days late, but I have a good excuse.  Cheesy

and you got the code working.  Grin  good job.  see?  it wasn't that hard to understand right?  lol.

I'll be joining too.  I found a puzzle that forms a sphere when put together, so I can't wait to have it completely altered.  Now I just need to decide if I want a theme...

I'm apologizing now to all of my partners.  when you get my questionnaire, like it says in there, please don't hate me.  I tried to make it a little easier for you, but you still may be scratching your heads and wondering how you got into this mess.  Cheesy  but if you have any questions, just ask me.  Grin

Krafty, your posting is so intriguing, I'm tempted to ask to be partnered with you just to see what you're talking about??!

But in a similar note, I figured out my theme and will also have a particular request of my partners.

Demanding, aren't we?   Wink
