A few questions...

How much can we alter the swaps we're faking? For instance, can I craft three items if the original swap calls for 4? And what if, for example, I want to craft a skirt when the swap calls for crafting an accessory (like my Anthropoligie swap)?

And can we fake a swap where the signup period has closed or has ended altogether (as long as we craft in the allotted amount of time)?

Okay, I'm done. For now  Cheesy

I think that the fake swaps should just be sure to really stick to the spirit of the original swap.  Soo...if you only make 3 items, no biggie, as long as you're making yourself quality items that adhere to the swap theme.
So, making a skirt for the anthropologie inspired swap is fine too, I think, because it is really just like you're spoiling yourself, right?

Of course, you can also send yourself extras!!

And...I don't mind if people fake join up with old swaps, as long as you give me a crafting amount (4 points, or one medium item or whatever) and a due date for your fake swap.  However, I think current swaps will be more fun, as we'll be swapping together and stuff...
But I'm pretty darned flexible, so go with what you want!

Greatest...idea...EVER! I just got done filling out the Mug Rug survey, and I couldn't bring myself to send it. Why? Because of tghe cost of shipping. I know shipping a mug rug would be cheap-o, but thats a few bucks better spent elsewhere. So I am signing up!

I am stellato_escuro.
