Details of swap:
 
Yay for gnomes and mushrooms!!!!!  Personally - I LOVE them!! Cute little guys with the pointy hat and little beard :-) And who can have a gnome without a mushroom??   This swap is going to be a 5pt swap.  You can mix and match to come up to the 5 pts.. At least one item MUST be handmade - and all 5pts worth of items can be handmade if you wish.  The items sent must either include a mushroom and/or a gnome.. Make sure you send a fabulous package you would want to receive yourself.  Feel free to add extra goodies to make sure your partner feels spoiled :-)  Your best tool is to have good communication with your partner so everything stays fair and balanced.

HERE IS HOW THE 5PT SYSTEM WORKS:

By Points
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


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

What crafts can you make?
What crafts would you like to receive?
What do you dislike?

Do you have access to a camera and agree to post pictures of what you receive in the gallery and take pictures of what you send (just in case)?

I may have to do this. I love gnomes. I even have one that lives on my foot! Hmmm... I should probably explain that it is a tattooed gnome.

I have a question about the point system. If we participate, do you just pick one of those point systems to use? And I understand the price but I don't think I understand the time, point or size.

On the time, is that time spend making item?

On points, do you put in one of each sized item to add up the points? How do you determine how big is large, medium and small? Do you use the same size categories as the size system?

And on size, again, is that one of each item? Isn't that the same as the point system?

I need to think long and hard about this .... I want to, but I don't know if I'll have time, and really don't want to disappoint a partner. DH believes gnomes are 'my people' - stemming from a comment he made while almost asleep. I'd said something about how he was so great, I would bronze him and put him in the garden. He said, "I'd do the same to you, but no one likes garden gnomes."

    I'll see how the first week of August goes ... and how inspired I get.

 - okay, i talked myself into it ... I'm going to sign up! -
