Today is the first day of spring and that means it's time to start gardening! But what do you do if you can't find your gardening gloves? Or if you've got several opened packets of seeds that you don't have a place to keep without them spilling together? What if you've always wanted a gathering basket or a gardening apron? Well, this swap can help you get all those crafty garden things!Crafting Requirements:
The requirement for this swap is 5 points
, which will translate to one medium and three smalls
OR two mediums and one small
(you'll need to discuss which with your partner!).
For those who need a refresher, here's the Craftster guide to what constitutes each size:
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or lessCommunication Requirements:
Checking in on the swap thread at least once a week is required so we know you're still around and crafting! A quick note saying that you're still working is sufficient. Also, communicating with your partner is also a necessity. If you have consistent (and recent) dings on feedback for poor communication or sending late, I may not approve your application. I will also note communication in feedback!
DCN are required for US swappers sending to partners in the US. International swappers must keep the receipt.
