Details of swap:

For this swap you may either make something that is on your partners wists, or make something based on one of their wist items. For instance, if someone had lots of cat items on their wist then you could send them something with cats.  Or you could make something in the style of something on their wist.

Before you sign up, make sure to go through and edit your wists, taking off things you have already received. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a Wists.com account to join this swap.  You must have a minimum of 80 craftable items in your wist.  However, more than the minimum amount is strongly encouraged.  For this swap a variety of items is also strongly encouraged to make crafting easier on everyone.  
 
Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner 5 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
 
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:  

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
 
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.
 
Rules:
 
All participants must check in at least once a week by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC,  The organizer must be sent a PM when sending and receiving.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.
 
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

I'm really excited about this swap, as well.  Wist swaps are always my favorite.

Just a reminder that everyone needs to get their wists beefed up to 80 craftable items before sign-ups end, if it already isn't.

This swap is soooo tempting but there is less than a month to swap would be hard with my busy schedule.

Yeah.  80 is a lot, but it makes it a lot easier for a partner to pick out potential items to make for each other.  You can do it!!!  I'm hoping that including the links to everyone's wists by their names will make stealing wists items easier, too. Smiley
