Details of swap:

This is a swap specifically for those of us Craftster members living in the UK, and the aim is to get to know each other a little better.

This is a 'getting to know you' swap - the idea is to send something crafted that reflects you or where you live (make sure that this is something that your partner will like!), as well as a letter and a postcard that again reflects you or something local to you (this can either be hand-made or bought). Maybe include a few free leaftets?

Also, it would be awesome to post or add links to some photos of either local places or your favourite places in the UK.

Some examples:
* bookmarks (any craft)
* teatowel
* decorated picture frame/book relating to the area

In an effort to keep postage costs down, this will be a medium sized swap, comprising of 3 points, where a large item is 3 points, a medium is 2 points, and a small is 1 point.

Large, medium and small items are defined as the following:

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

Therefore, to get 3 points, you could either send 1 large item, 1 medium and 1 small item or 3 small items.

If you would like to send extra items, please liaise with your partner first.

Please remember to communicate at least once a week, and PM me if any problems arise.

I look forward to round 2! I have exams all through June, so I wouldn't have any time for crafting at all.
