The requirement thing is a little gray. Basically you should spend $3 if you're going to store buy something. Like with the smalls, you can pick "Something from your favorite store" you should spend about $3 on the item. But if you're going to craft something, the item should be $3 in value meaning if you were say going to sell that item on etsy, you would price it at $3. I hope that makes sense!

Okay...that's how I originally understood it.  Smiley

I'm wondering if my hubby will kill me if I do MAF again. He said no more swaps, but I don't think this one counts, as it's more of a social engagement than a swap, right?

I'm giving in and signing up for another round, I think I was inthe first round and it didn't go so well but I'm being an optimist and trying again.

I'm thinking about joining in again, but can I get some clarification please.

13. Even though this is already in Craftster's Swapping Guide I would like to reiterate that ALL PACKAGES MUST HAVE DELIVERY CONFIRMATION! If you are sending overseas, you still must use some form of tracking available for your package.

Is a receipt no longer sufficient? Because my options for mailing a parcel between 500g and 750g (that's about 1lb to 2lb) from Australia to the US are as follows:

$21.30 Air mail.
$26.50 Registered (has proof of purchase, sign on delivery)

$56.60 Express Post International (partial tracking of when lodged & when picked up)
$59.00 Express Courier International (full tracking)

The first two aren't tracking per se - just proof that postage for a parcel has been purchased.

The second two are, quite honestly, far too expensive. It's about (as far as I can work out) 4x more expensive than the US - AUS equivalent.

So yeah - is tracking something that's insisted upon, even in OS mailings where the cost of tracking is prohibitive?

Photos or scans of receipts where the information is clearly legible is fine. I was just reiterating that rule because I had a few people who didn't give tracking OR a receipt. I'll adjust that now though, thanks!
