- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

There won't be a limit on how much you send but there will be a minimum of one surprise ball.

If you are wrapping your surprise ball for a "yarnie" (knitter/crocheter) please make sure that there is enough yarn for your partner to make a 1-2 skein project of their choosing.

Using the Craftster item size scale seen below we'll say that there should be at least 3 small items and one medium item per ball. If you and your partner choose to do more than that, that's awesome. With yarn/fiber/bias tape/ribbon wrapped surprises the wrapping will count as one small item.


By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

I will pair people according to what they want their surprises to be wrapped with.

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

One thing that you can do to make a "Stalk Me" page is sign up for a free website with a list of things that you would love to receive. Or add it to a profile that you have with your e-mail maybe?

Anyone have any ideas?

sweet!  Totally just sent in my questionnaire.  Thanks, shylittlegoddess for organizing this. 
Shan-E-bear, you could just bookmark or keep note of links to stuff you like and send those to your partner.  I know that MissBarbara does something similar, keeps a running list of likes and such...it worked out quite well when we were partnered.

You'll get your partner on the 18th when sign ups are over and then you can start "stalking" them by looking over their wists and asking them a hundred questions about the things that they like.

I am watching the clock till I can post partners and say "OKAY GO!"

Questions are not a problem! How else would you learn about all the swappin' goodness! Make sure you read all the Swap FAQ and such as well.

After I pair people up I will send you, in a PM, their filled out questionnaire so you'll have that information.
