Details of swap:
This is a SECRET Santa swap!
Your partner will not know who you are until they open your package! In turn, you will not know who will be sending to you.
You will receive your partner's info, and you will stalk them!  You must NOT contact your partner and let them know who you are!

This is a small swap. You will craft 1 small and 1 medium item based off of your partner’s questionnaire, wist, and what else you find while stalking them. You will also purchase 1 item worth $3 - $5 USD… this can be an ornament, candy, a candle, or anything else your partner might like. (you will be sending three items in total).

(By Time
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

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

Everyone MUST have a wist with at least 25 items...and please try to make sure that the majority of these items are craftable (not all furniture, electronics, books, etc!!)

Please make sure to fill out the questionnaire fully, and include all the information for your secret partner that you can. I am giving a long sign-up period so that you can take your time in filling out the questionnaire. Please take several days to think of a full comprehensive list for your partner because your partner will not be able to ask you questions, so make sure you give lots of info.

The kicker to this swap is that you must WAIT to open your package! We’ll make a party of opening and posting our gifts on the 24th of July. This should be enough time for everyone to receive their packages. July 24th isn't good for you for posting? That's alright as long as you let the organizers know and we'll come up with an alternate plan that fits your schedule Smiley

If you are in the United States, you must get a DC# for your package and if you’re outside of the United States you must be able to send an electronic copy of your postage receipt. You will PM all of your sending and receiving info to the organizers NOT to the person you're crafting for!

Communication requirement: I expect everyone to post at least once a week on the thread. If you haven’t posted in a week, I will PM you. If you don’t respond to the PM within a week of that, I will consider you a flaker. If you’re going on vacation, or you know that you won’t have internet access for a while, let me know! I want this swap to go as smoothly and as fun as it can. I also understand that there are some more quiet people who only like to read. For your post just give an update. “Still researching my partner at this time” is an acceptable post (or whatever your status might be at the time). Please only sign-up if you know that you can follow through to the end!

I have to see if I can finish up some things and clear my calendar.  I have grandbabies coming for the summer, so I have to watch my time.

Sounds great! And feel free to take as much time as you need in filling out the questionnaire (well, as long as you don't miss the deadline, lol!).

Oh- and that reminds me- Everyone will have the ability to write to me and let me know if they want any changes/additions to their questionnaire once during the sign-up process! I understand that you may be browsing along one day and see something that you really could have added into your questionnaire, so I'm allowing you to do so Smiley
