The Gypsy Swap!
NEW SENDOUT DATE APRIL 7TH, 2010!!

Gallery Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342446.0


Hi there! Welcome to the gypsy swap! Before you go ahead and send me your questionnaire, there are a few things I'd like to tell you before we begin. This swap requires 1 Large, 1 Medium and 2 small crafted items. Please send only items that relate the theme in some way unless they are "extras" to spoil your partner. If you are outside of the USA, I require a scan or legible photo of your receipt or customs form to prove that you have sent if you do not purchase a tracking number. I encourage all participants to post in this thread or send me a PM at least on a weekly basis. This is to let me and your future partner know that you are still actively participating and haven't run away with a gypsy caravan.  Wink

This swap's theme is the mysterious and often misunderstood world of the gypsies. Your crafts can range from costume pieces and exotic jewelery to treasures that look like they were brought from distant lands. Let your creative mind wander as far as the sand dunes to the East and as long as the Silk Road.

Awesome! Grin I'm excited to get this show on the road too!

If anyone is wondering why their profiles aren't updated yet, I decided to add everyone in from today at once on my break at work tomorrow.

I think I'll need to schedule myself for Round 2 too. So you may already have enough before you finish Round 1!

I think I'm also going to be in there for round 2 - with exams coming up, I don't think that I will be able to get the time to do this.

For anyone whose interested on Channel 4 (UK) there was a program called My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on which is a little bit of an insight into gypsy culture. If you go onto 4oD you can easily access it online.

I can't check out the show though - it's blocked!  Tongue
