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

The purpose of this swap is to help our fellow craftster get out of this October slump. I've noticed that a lot of people on Craftster, have been having a hard time or a few misfortunes. You don't need to have had a bad month to join this swap, just the want to help a fellow crafter out and create a friendly swapping atmosphere and a nice package.

Since the goal is to help our fellow crafters feel better, I have a few things to ask of each swapper.
1. I ask that you take the time to really get to know your partner. Even the conversations you have can help someone who is feelinf down.
2. I ask that you stay active enough in this thread. I will not be keeping track of who posts how many times a week, but if you do not post an update once ever 2 weeks I will contact you to make sure everything is alright.
3. I do NOT want any flakers. This swap is to make others feel better and if someone flakes it could only worsen the situation.
4. Because you are spending a little extra time to get to know your partner, I am expecting amazing packages from everyone. They need to meet the swap requirements and to be in the tastes of your partner. A badly made or too small package could also make your partner feel worse and we don't want that.

This will be a 3 point swap. You can do more, but please talk with your partner first about any extras.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
 
Small = 2 or less hours of crafting. about $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, bookmarks…
Medium = 2 or more hours of crafting. $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf…
Large = 3 or more hours of crafting. $30+ By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a purse…
 
Use your best judgment, and feel free to ask any questions. Please try not to do three smalls, try to include at least one medium or large.

Note: There will be a place in the questionairre to tell your partner why you need a pick me up. This is optional If you choose to fill this section out and your issue deals with Craftster in anyway (swaps, partners, member, anything) please do NOT name any names, swaps, posts, or anything that could hurt another members feelings.

Craftster username
Email address

I got some slightly miserable news today. I could definitely use a pick-me-up. Sending in my questionnaire shortly.

I think I could use a little pick-me-up right now, as well as making someone else happier, but I worry about not being able to finish whatever I would have planned to make in time :/

I'm actually just starting to feel mostly recovered from a prolonged period of unpleasantness -- I would love to help someone else feel better. Everyone should be happy! :<
