Details of swap:
This swap is for us Canadians!  The idea sprouted from the American 44cent swap (thanks lovesclutter for that bit of brilliance!).  This is our take on it!  Send 1 envelope, within country, Filled with crafted items, supplies, bits bobs, and any other crafty goodies you can possibly think of!  The only parameters I am setting are this: at least one item must be crafted and Your envelope must be NO BIGGER THEN  245mmx156mm (standard letter) OR 235mmx120mm (card)
I am allowing stuffing of that envelope until it could possibly burst (though I wouldn’t recommend that. Could you imagine the havoc craft supplies could reek on the machines at the post office?!  And how tragic would that be for your partner, never mind the post office!) 

I reserve the right as organizer to refuse anyone that has a long history of late sending, or poor communication. This is an easy swap.
I also ask that you post in the thread at least once after partners are assigned.  Failure to post once will receive poor communication feedback
I am accepting first time swappers!

Just sent in my questionnaire. (Howdy tlh878!  We're partners on the 13 day of Halloween Swap Grin)

and in response to this:
I am allowing stuffing of that envelope until it could possibly burst (though I wouldnt recommend that. Could you imagine the havoc craft supplies could reek on the machines at the post office?!  And how tragic would that be for your partner, never mind the post office!)  


Just write "PLEASE HAND CANCEL" on the front then cover the envelope with packing tape.  I've never had any trouble with it not going through Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

I am def. going to have to consider this... Because I am not a papercrafter in the slightest, I can't really think of what I can send at the moment. I will have to go through my random whimsies and whatnot and see what I can pull out... Cheesy

Do you know if there is a certain weight restriction? Or it is more like, if it fits it goes?

If it fits it goes, the price of the stamp will change though.  And they'll proably charge a bit more because it can't go through the machines, but the limit for one stamp is 30g  and 5mm thick (57cents).  And you can go with 50gand 5mm (for 1.00)
But they will accept them, they just charge more.
