True Blood Swap Round 3



Do you side with the Vamps, Weres or Shifters? Or are you a fully paid up member of the Fellowship of the Sun? If it's the latter, you might want to leave now; otherwise come on in and enjoy the Bon Temps baubles  Grin

This is a relatively small swap (4 points), but that's just enough to cover that Merlotte's tshirt you've been desperate for. Or the latest copy of Lafayette's recipe book complete with bitchy quotes, or even that cuddly Eric you want to erm...show off Wink All groups are welcome, as are those that prefer the books to the TV series.

I promise we won't bite....

Unless you ask nicely Cool

Previous rounds - galleries:

Round 1 - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=294088.0/
Round 2 - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=313850.0

To prevent flakers (or try to at least) I'm making it a requirement that you either post in the thread once a week (even if it's a 'still here!' post) or PM me just so we can see if anyone drops off the planet before send outs. I'd also ask that you don't send unless you've 'seen' your partner online that week - if you're not sure, contact me and I'll check. I know there are a few newbie swappers who are interested in signing up so again, if you're not sure on something, please ask! Some of the swap rules and regs can seem really daunting and a bit limiting initially, but honestly they're not, they're just to make sure everyone comes out happy (and full of Eric love Kiss)

THIS SWAP WILL BE LIMITED TO 20 PEOPLE

It's a 4 point swap minimum, there is a space on the questionnaire to say that you're interested in a bigger swap but it's no guarantee that you'll be matched with someone who also wants to craft more. Any extras (crafted or spoilage) must be agreed with your partner first! Here's a guide to the points system, but do ask if in doubt:

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Just a reminder that I'm limiting this swap to 20, and there were 16 people plus myself interested from the ideas thread, so don't hang around too long! I'll be accepting people probably each evening UK time, but will do it in the order of the PMs to be completely fair.

Reading annachronism's questionnaire made me realise that we hadn't talked about possible spoilers. It's not too bad if you're only watching the TV series, but if you've read the books, please be careful about spreading too much info around during your posts and PMs. If I have to match someone who has read all 9 books with a non book person, I'll make sure I remove any bits that are spoilerish (I think you're safe, annachronism - and that's a favourite of mine too!) before I forward them. I mean I'd hate you all to find out that Bill goes off with Sam whilest Sookie becomes Lafayette's business partner Grin

(And for info, I've read all the books and seen series 2, so I'm spoiler proof Tongue)
