Details of swap:

This is the Get Well swap for people with long term diseases/medical problems (i.e. a trouble some heart condition) or a temporary more-than-a-cold sickness like mono or something.  This is to make us all feel better and help us through our time in need, so an inclusion of a get well card is MANDATORY

This will be a 4 Point swap, so if you want to do more or any extras, please contact your partner and agree on an exchange so no one feels cheated. Also, at lease ONE of your items MUST be crafted.

Examples of Craft Items to send:
-a little pillow to hug
-a plushie
-a blanket
-a robe or slippers
-a journal or something to chronicle thoughts and feelings

Participants are encouraged to explain their medical problems or diseases to their partner, but don't say anything you're not comfortable with sharing. Also, if your partner has a condition you don't understand, feel free to research it a bit and give them a little more personalized package

And also, I REALLY don't want any flakers, so please KEEP IN TOUCH. Please communicate with this thread or partners weekly, and if you feel your partner isn't communicating please PM me and I will talk to them.
And if I don't hear from you at least once a week I will be PMing you.

ok so we currently don't have that many participants so I have extended the signups for a week. If we still don't have more members, and we have an odd number, then I'll just take on two partners.

hopefully more people can join up though!

Just sent in my app!  I actually had to drop out of my last swap because (you guessed it) I had to start treatment again!  But now treatment is done and I am feeling a bit better, although I could have done without 4 days in the hospital last week LOL.  I love this swap idea!!!

I'm seriously considering signing up...gotta decide soon, I guess.  I miss crafting; I haven't since the holidays, and with the long semester coming up, I could use a swap to give me a mental boost before everything gets rough again.

Hmmm.....

Okay guys, here's the deal, there are 4 of us but we'll be having one more person join the swap, but I won't have the questionnaire for it until the end of the week because the person is having surgery, and I can't make partners until all questionnaires are received.. So by the very latest Sunday, if all goes as hoped.

Since there will be 5 swappers total, I want to ask if anyone is willing to take on two partners. If more than one person is willing, I will approve the first person who volunteers.
If no one volunteers, I will take on a second swapper.
Either way, Everyone will send and receive Smiley

Until then, good luck everyone, and feel better *big hugs*
