Here is the Original Discussion Thread
Details of swap: This swap is for craftsters who make bentos or are interested in starting out in the world of bentos!
Don't know what a Bento is? Then here a couple of links I think are very informative:Lunch in a Box
, Just Bento
, Cooking Cute
and lots of flickr groups: Obento
, and beginners
Here are links to the first three galleries:Bento Swap GalleryBento Swap 2 GalleryBento Swap 3 GalleryYou are required to craft 1 medium and 2 smalls plus purchase 2 items.
You must decide how much to spend with your partner. You may also send extras but remember that extras are not required and you should not expect any extras back. You may decide with your partner if you both wish to send extras for a fair swap. I should not need to mention that everything sent should be bento related but I’ll put it here just in case. =)
Once the swap has started please keep in contact with you partner. Please bookmark the thread and post at least once in it. You are required to post pictures of what you received in the gallery.
If you can’t, let your partner know before they send so they can post pictures for you. I recommend that you take photos of your items before sending if you have a camera. When you send and receive you need to PM your partner and the organizer. Failure to follow these rules will be noted in your profile.
=) I’m not that scary, just want to make it a happy swap experience for everyone.
