Swap name: 10 minute swap round 2
Gallery: HERE!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Annchen
Sign-up date range: 9/15 to 9/21
Date to send item by: 10/7 (October 7th)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 16 (15 + organiser)

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Additional Age requirement? No

Swap Organizer herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES/NO
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

Details of swap:
Are you always busy and so haven't swapped for a while? Do you like crafting quick things? Do you need a low stress swap right now? If yes, this swap is for you! This swap is for one item/set of items. You can send anything you think your partner would like. The only condition is that you take the maximum of an hour to craft your goodies.

This is meant to be a low stress swap so please avoid sending extras. However, if you both agree to craft more than the minimum I can't really stop you...

As in the Craftster swap rules, you need a DC number if shipping within the US, and proof of posting if sending internationally. If your package is too small to qualify for DC#, please keep your proof of posting, but beware that if the package doesn't arrive you will be required to resend!

Communication
This is the minimum amount of communication I want from you:
PM the organiser and your partner when sending and receiving (don't forget DC#), post in the thread at least once to make sure you get any messages from me posted there. Let me know you're alive and crafting halfway through (via PM or in thread). Also: if you don't hear from your partner at all and you're done with your package, hold off on sending and please PM me.

I reserve the right to refuse swappers with a history of bad communication or dodgy feedback. (But I hope I won't need to!)

Some ideas for quick crafts:
A notecard set
Simple throw pillow
A necklace
Elaborate earrings
Hand carved stamp
A stationary set
A pin cushion
A knitted or crocheted dish scrubbie
A simple stuffie or amigurumi
A special bookmark

More inspiration in the gallery for the last round.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: 10 Minute Swap round 2
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
(Please type this as you would write it on the letter to make it easier for your partner)

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (please consider this, it's a small swap and the organiser is in Sweden so we've got at least one non-US swapper Tongue)

Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval (YES/NO)

Do you agree to resend your package if you've got no proof of sending and the package never turns up?
Do you have any allergies?:
Do you have any allergens in your house (cats, dogs, indoor smoking) that people may be allergic to?:

Name at least 5 items or types of items you would like to receive. Try to think of things that can be crafted in an hour. You might not get the exact item you wish for, this is a starting point for your partner!

We've got Canada, Sweden and UK so far Smiley

I just keep coming up with more ideas too... I haven't made a teacup pincushion in a long time for example. They are fun to make but nothing I would really use so I enjoy making them for others.

Chocolate makes it a much sweeter deal, doesn't it? I got some yummy jam in a swap package from Canada the other day.
