Do we have any brand new swappers that want a nice easy swap to get their feet wet?  We've run several of these in the past and they are always a lot of fun!  There's little pressure, as everyone is new! Smiley

If anyone's interested, just respond here and I'll figure out when to begin one! Smiley

I've never done a swap but would be into it. Would there be a theme or any guide lines?

Ok, this would be Round 13!  Here's the basics, taken from the last one rackycoo ran: (she and I have both run them and run them the same way):

To be considered eligible join this swap, you must:
 - have a minimum of 15 posts
 - be a member of Craftster for at least 1 month
 - have never been in a Craftster swap before
 - not currently be in a Craftster swap

You will be crafting 1 medium and 2 smalls for your partner.  If you want to send more, please discuss this with your partner.  A guide to size: 
medium 2-3 hours  and a small is less than 2 hours.

Craftster's Rules:
1.  If sending within the US, you must use a Delivery Confirmation Number (DC#).  If outside of the US, please get a receipt.  The DC# and/or receipt must be sent to the organizer and your partner via pm when you send.
2.  When you receive your swap package, you must notify me and your partner via pm and post photos in the gallery.

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

My rules:
1. When you sign up for the swap, you MUST post in the thread. This is an important part of joining any swap. Important swap announcements will be made here, and you're not going to want to miss that. Besides, it's fun to see who else is signing up! Tell us a little about yourself. Let's get to know each other!
2.  Throughout the swap, you must communicate with your partner.  If I receive notification from your partner that you are out of communication, this will result in a 'poor communication' comment in your feedback.
3.  When sending pm's to me, please label them as 'Newbie Swap Round 12' in the subject line.
4.  Posting photos in the gallery is a rule of this swap.  Failure to do so will result in a comment in your feedback of 'did not complete swap requirements'. A big part of swapping is posting your goodies in the gallery and acknowledging your partner's work!



Does that help?

I've never done a swap before and I'll have to check if I've made 15 posts or not.  It's been awhile sense I've posted anything.  But I'd be interested in doing a newbie swap.  Is this still happening?

Yep, I was just waiting to see if there was more interest.  I'll post here when we start the swap. Smiley

I am a newbie.  I like this idea!  Less pressure than joining a regular swap.
