EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE BEEN PM-ED THEIR PARTNER BY NOW!

Well there was a fair bit of positive feedback on this swap idea, so here goes.

Swap name: Head/Neck swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: purple_hippo
Sign-up date range: now til June 6
Date to send item by: June 30

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nah, the more the merrier

Non-U.S. participants allowed? of course! otherwise I'd be excluding myself

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES/NO: Of course!

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: Yep. Don't worry, any swaps listed as "in progress" for me have been sent

Details of swap: There have been hand and feet swaps, now for your head! Anything for your face/head/neck. That could include jewellery, scarves, hats, face creams etc etc. And let's make it a secret swap, all the more fun!

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your continent?

5 and counting. keep 'em coming! Ta2dPierced, how is your "fill up a coffee cup swap" going? If it's your first, we need to wait for that to be filled out as 'positive', but I'm happy to wait if everyone else is.

a swap is where you craft for someone, and someone else crafts for you. in a secret swap, you don't know who is sending to you until you receive the package. swappers can live anywhere. we have lots of americans, but I'm australian. sign up!

i reallly really wanna join, BUTTTT.... i've been looking at the past swaps galleries and it seems like everyone in these swaps send like 20 things to their person.  i think i could do one, maybe two things, but i don't think i can fulfill an obligation of a bunch of stuff... so i guess my question is:

is there a minimum/limit to the stuff we send to the person we are assigned to?

I guess it's "whatever feels right". No help, I know. But I'm sure most craftsters would prefer say 2 really lovingly made small items, over a few big but crappy items. Thoughts on quantities, anyone?

maybe like, minimum 3 or 2 and max is whatever..I think i MAY do this if it is okay with my mother..who pays for shipping is my question? Since, I live overseas..in saudi aramco actually (saudi arabian oil company compound). well does anyone think this is possible..? i also don't think im that great at making stuff yet but if its for another person it'll be the best that i can possibly make..i hope they like them...so how do you kno who to send your swap to if they don't know..?

think if you can post internationally, it's not a problem.
I know who sends to who and who receives from whom. I also let one of the mods know. You know who you're sending to, but not who you're receiving from (they're different people).
Most craftsters are tolerant of different levels of ability. opinions?

also (maybe the last) another question..how do we get their address without them knowing? do we tell it to you? and our names? like in a PM or something?

As far as how many things to make, I think it depends on what you're making.  Obviously, a pair of earrings takes less effort than a knitted scarf.  I myself am of the mind that the swaps need to get back to a reasonable amount of stuff, rather than truckloads.  I myself would be more than happy with one really nice thing.  That's my 2 cents.

I'm with Melinda, I'd rather have one really nice thing. Some of the swaps actually set an amount of time you should spend working on the item(s).  Personally, anything I make spans over several days (with my kids' help  Wink). If you like what you make and would use it yourself, then I think it's good enoough to swap. I'm always a little anxious if my partner will like it, but that's part of the fun!

I'm so excited! This is my first swap. I don't want to screw it up.

My little head is bubbling with ideas! I want to know who my partner is, so I can start crafting!

I may include 3 or 4 things, but most will be small, with one big thing. That ok with all of you? I understand the one or two nice things deal. I totally would love one well crafted item. I just have all these ideas!

Nope.
If I get no reply by tonight, I'll PM everyone with their partners and move the sendout date back a week. Sorry about this! I don't mind taking a risk on icrispyi even tho she's not quite a month yet. but I don't want to offend any craftster gods/goddesses!
