Details of swap:

Ahhhh, the holiday of LOVE is upon us!   Do you LOVE the thought of making crafty goodness for someone -- handmade cards, hearts, birds, flowers. . . . ?  And who doesn't love receiving handmade crafty love???  Join us in this Sweet and Easy Valentine's Day Swap!
VERY IMPORTANT. . . Please read before signing up:
Because this is a small swap with a short crafting period (a little less than 3 weeks) it is very important that you are positive you can commit to the cost and time for this swap before you join.  No one wants to be flaked on, especially on Valentines Day!  Also, since this is a small swap, make sure you can craft the loveliest, sweetest valentine package to the best of your abilities, in the amount of time given.  If you arent willing to do this, please do not sign up.

Now, for the nitty-gritty details:

** This swap is a 2 point swap.  That means one medium, or two small crafted items for your Craftster Valentine.  For more info on how to evaluate points, please visit this link.
** You will craft a handmade Valentine. . . it can be crafted from whatever medium you choose (paper, felt, fabric, clay, etc.)  
** You will also send some treats/sweets for your Valentine.

Additional requirements:

**DC#s are required for US swappers.
** If you are an international swapper, you MUST keep your shipping receipt until your partner has received and posted photos in the gallery. Its advisable that you photograph or scan your receipt just in case your package is delayed or lost.
**PM both your partner AND organizer (thats me!) when you send AND when you receive.
**I highly recommend photographing your swap package before you send, just in case your partner cant post photos in the gallery.
**Post photos of your goodies in the gallery when you receive them from your partner.  I try to give speedy feedback once swap requirements are met, so the sooner you post, the sooner I give feedback!
**I will require that you post in the thread at least once a week so I know you are alive, kicking, and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swaps more fun for everyone!
**First time swappers that meet Craftster swap requirements are welcome!

*****Please label all PM's to the organizer as VALENTINE SWAP.*****

Don't think too long. . . the sign-up period is really short!  Wink  We got a late start getting the swap started.  It was either a short sign-up period, or a really short crafting period.... we chose short sign-ups.

I hope you can join us though!  Smiley

Hooray! I  am glad we're doing this swap! Thanks organizers! I hadn't checked the thread in a long time because initially there was virtually no interest. Glad to see there's still plenty of love to share on Craftster--and I'm in!

I'm in and just sent in my questionnaire.  Thanks for organizing this - what fun!

If you are interested in making me some knitted dishcloths, contact me for a swap!  I'll sew you something or gift you with supplies!
