Swap name: Frida Kahlo Swap

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: blackcat
Sign-up date range: Monday Mai 2 Monday Mai 23
Date to send item by: Monday June 6

Limited to a certain number of people? not yet

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Definitely.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES

Details of swap:

We all know Frida Kahlo rocks! So share your passion and make something fabulous and original, there are no limitations!

Everyone is making 3 items, try making something your partner would like. To be able to do so please don't start until you have your swap-partners information, it gives a good chance that everyone will get something personal, unique and something they would love.

And, since this is my first time organizing, I would appreciate NO FLAKERS! I'm counting on you and someone flaking out is really not fair. And if something is unclear just ask, as said, first time so there is a good chance I've forgotten something Smiley

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Frida Kahlo Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Are you to ship to an address outside of the US to participate in this swap?
WHAT WOULD YOU LOVE TO RECIEVE/HATE TO RECIEVE? (ie, bag, pillow, shirt, pictureframe, collage, book, selfmade postcards, shrines...)

IS THERE A PICTURE FROM FRIEDA KAHLO YOU REALY LIKE? WHICH ONE?

CAN YOU PROVIDE LINKS THAT WOULD HELP YOUR SWAP PARTNER GET AN IDEA OF WHO YOU ARE, YOUR STYLE? (ie, posts youve made on craftster, a website, a livejournal...)
DO YOU HAVE A WAY TO POST PICTURES?
DO YOU GIVE YOUR PARTNER PERMISSION TO POST PICTURES OF THE ITEMS THEY RECEIVE IN THE SWAP GALLERY?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Thanks to crafty_dame for the inspiration for the questionnaire, you did a lovely job Smiley

I'm sooooo tempted to sign up.  I'm glad the signup is so long- it'll give me plenty of time to decide.

Ok, I'm new at this, so sorry if the answer is somewhere around here but I just haven't found it.  Anyway, do we get our partners after the last sign-up date or sometime before?  Just wondering because I'm excited and want to get started, but want to see what my partner likes before I do anything!

k, i don't think i'll do this swap [ Undecided] but i had to share this upsetting story:
well my english teacher is an art fanatic kinda guy. so he has some frida paintings on the walls. ALL the kids make fun of them like "whoa! that's a hottttt lady". well, what the hell kids?! she's rad!

i actually told someone that she was awesome once...someone i didn't care about so that when they gave me that dirty look like "what the hell do you know?" i wouldn't have been affected if it made me any less of a person.

rock on, frida-loving-kids!

okay it's only 3 things, so I can swing it. As an art teacher I don't think I can pass this up.

Question: Can our items be Frida Kahlo/Mexicana inspired, or are our items supposed to have an image of Frida (or her art) on them?
