THIS SWAP IS NOW CLOSED FOR CLAIMS. If you need to redeem feedback, please send to your original partner if possible, or check the Swap Angel board for sending opportunities.

Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370225.0

Swap name: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Round 2
Craftster members who are organizing this swap: jungrrl & rackycoo
Sign-up date range: January 12 through February 9
Date to send item by: Two weeks past the date the list was chosen


Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? 16+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: FOCs - YES, Users with Negs - Not necessarily.
- Is a Friend of Craftster OR has negative feedback: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: NO this swap is specifically set up to help those members with negative feedback. Smiley
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES

Details of swap:

If you would like to participate, please read ALL of the information in this post thoroughly.

Though there are quite a few Craftster members who have negative feedback, angel opportunities can be hard to come by.  At the beginning of 2009 we ran the FOC 2nd Chance Wishlist swap, in order to provide opportunities for those members who needed to clear their negative feedback during our amnesty period.  However, since we have made our duplicate account policies more clear and more users are in the situation of having old negative feedback moved to new accounts, and there are many other members without duplicate accounts who need opportunities to set their accounts in good standing, we have decided to run this swap again.  

As with the previous version of this swap, Friends of Craftster in good swap standing and users with negative feedback (who have NOT been banned from swapping) may participate. Here's how it works:

Friends of Craftster:

As long as you are a FOC when you post your list, you are eligible.  Since you will not be sending in this swap, you may join even if you are at your 5 swap limit. You may only post once and once you have been chosen, your list will be removed. Unlike most swaps, for this swap you will need to post your wishlist FIRST and THEN PM both jungrrl & rackycoo.  Due to our method of tracking, this will be easiest for us.  If you are found to be ineligible, your post will be removed without notice.

Remember, the more realistic your list, and the more items you include, the better chance you have of getting chosen! If you are chosen, your list will be removed and your swapper will send you a few items from your list. The swapper will choose one large or two mediums, and then two of your small items OR the equivalent of the swap they received a negative for. When you receive, you will pm both jungrrl and rackycoo so we can fix your sender's feedback, and then you will post in the gallery and include a nice thank you message to your sender. Feedback will not be entered for this swap, as FOCs will not actually be swapping and senders will be getting a negative removed from their profile.

Because this is not a regular swap, there is a chance that either you will not get chosen, or you might get flaked on after you are picked. Please note that there will be no angels for this swap. If you don't receive, though, there is no loss as you will not be sending out items to your swapper.

If you received in the last round, you're encouraged to sit out this round. This won't be enforced but it's the nice thing to do. Smiley


Users with Negative Feedback:

You do not need to send a PM just to sign-up. Just PM once you've chosen a list.

Please send to one FOC per negative you've received. You do not need to clear all of your negatives during this swap, but you are allowed to clear multiple negatives by choosing multiple lists. Please choose one large or two mediums, and then two of small items from each list. If the swap you've received a negative for required a significantly smaller package (If, for example, you did not complete a "One Tiny Thing" swap), you may contact us prior to choosing for permission to send a smaller package. If you do not contact us beforehand and send a smaller package anyway, your feedback will not be reversed.

Once you have selected a Friend of Craftster to send to, PM both jungrrl and rackycoo the relevant questionnaire below.  You MUST PM both jungrrl and rackycoo each time you choose a list and each time you send. When you send your package you must purchase Delivery Confirmation if you are sending within the US. If you are sending within or between any other countries you will need to provide a scan or picture of your receipt when you send. This is not required in regular Craftster swaps, but will be required in this swap.

Once your package has been received, one negative will be changed to positive.  The previous organizer comments will remain, but we will add that you successfully completed the FOC swap to redeem your feedback.

If you claim someone in this swap, you will need to complete your obligations. If you do not send a package to someone that you claim you will be permanently banned from swapping. This is in line with current swap rules.


All participants:

Since both organizers work for Craftster, we will be easiest to contact during working hours.  During the evenings or weekends you may not receive a response right away.  We will get back to you as soon as we can.  


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
(Please put FOC Wishlist in the subject line of any PMs regarding this swap!)

QUESTIONNAIRE FOR FOCs to fill out:

Name of swap: FOC wishlist
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country

I am a FOC, and I understand that this swap was specifically formed to help people redeem feedback. Upon receiving, I will post pictures to the gallery and thank my sender. I also understand that in the event I do not receive from this swap, no angels will be provided. YES/NO



QUESTIONNAIRE FOR USERS WITH NEGs to fill out:

Name of swap: FOC wishlist
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:

Does your profile say you are banned from swapping?: YES/NO

Have you ever received a PM from jungrrl regarding a previous username?:

If you have ever had another username please list it here:

Who are you choosing to send to:

What is the send by date for this package? (2 weeks from today):

What items will you be sending (please copy directly from the wishlist):


I currently have negative feedback but have not been banned from swapping, and I understand that this swap was specifically formed to help people redeem feedback. I will PM both jungrrl & rackycoo with Delivery Confirmation numbers or pictures of my receipt when I send. I also understand that in the event I do not complete the obligations I sign up for in this swap, I will be banned from swapping. YES/NO


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I live in Reno Nevada. I love plaids and polka dots, my fave colors are blues, greens, black, gray and silver but I dont mind some pink now and again, I do not like purple or yellow until it is a really awesome print, like cupcakes or giraffes or something. I think my wist and ravelry show a lot about what kinds of stuff I like and Im trying to make everything very broad so Im easy to craft for. Im a Buddhist. I have so many crafts that I love to do but crocheting knitting sewing and polymer clay are my faves. Im hopeless romantic and married to the man of my dreams and we have 1 son together who is 5. I also have a guinea pig and chinchilla, they are my other babies. Im a big fan of Natalie Dee, my faves are anxiety girl and the masked procrastinator. I have a really bad allergy to some mysterious thing that Ive been trying to get control of for the past 2 months so please do not wash anything with laundry soap unless its purex or homemade, no fabric softener or anything and Im allergic to nickel and artificial sweetener.
Crafted
Socks they have to be really long or really short or felted slippers  (I love the French press ones on ravelry)
Skirts, 20-24 long with elastic waistbands (36 waist) or wrap skirt, patchwork skirts are awesome too
A doll, lots of ideas on my wist
Fluffy things, I have lots on my wist
Pj pants, fleece, flannel or cotton, I dont really care
Anything Buddha related or wrist mala
Wall art of some kind especially embroidered art in the hoops
Slouchy hat or wrist warmers or glittens or legwarmers (something to keep the snow out of my boots) it gets really cold here ( black, gray, or white)
Deadpool, captain America, Buddha or giraffe sock monkey
Miniatures, even Halloween ones
Decorated tank tops, my favorite are ribbed ones from walmart or old navy in medium, I like the ones with the knitted back on them http://www.wists.com/tattooedcrafter/88d42c6b7685ad181782bd52ff7cad21?offset=320 or with buttons but Im open to lots of different kinds
Cute hair clips, no headbands
Weekender bag
Surprise me, I have lots of stuff on my wist and ravelry

Supplies
Fabric, big enough to make a skirt out of or scraps for gibbous type things and lace of any kind (I really want to make a cupcake dress)
Spinning fiber, dyed or not, Im still learning
Yarn, Ill take any kind
Buttons
Polymer clay or clay supplies
Kits I can do with my son who will be 5 next month
Stamp carving supplies or kit
Needle felting stuff, I really want to learn
Resin molds or clay molds
Zippers of all shapes, sizes and colors.
Old sweaters so I can cut them up a make a sweater like this http://www.wists.com/57a88cef06f91cff1b14bf99829dcc1e?q=sweater&offset=0 or http://www.wists.com/3dffa72a40c6fb34e0c419a147c7d0b4?q=coat&offset=0

Extras
Tea, hot cocoa, hot cider, or instant flavored coffee drinks

*  Anything roller derby related - my derby name is Tammy ToeStop (anything with that on it would be cool)
*  Anything for my husband - he is a referee for Roller Derby and his name is Brad to the Bone. Maybe a shirt or something? Size Large
*  Anything from my wists:  www.wists.com/SarahJ2001

Hi, my name is Peihan, and I live in Maryland (USA), just over the DC border.  There a couple of things that I've been wanting, but haven't been able to swap for, since most swaps are for making/receiving similar items Smiley  I'm 29, will be married 3 years this year, have a puffy, mellow cat named Meowy Cat.  I like running, especially out on the trails and I do biology research when I'm not crafting.  I also like to bake Smiley

I really like the Simpsons, Tool, cute things like cats/monkeys/gnomes.  I also like trees/forests/leaves and chocolate, esp Lindt!

I don't really like scented things or pink things.  I also can't wear most metal jewelry, but really like necklaces.  Thanks for considering me!

Crafts:

*A knitted amigurumi, like (but not restricted to) the ones here: http://mochimochiland.com/shop/category/knitting-patterns/
I like cute, brightly colored things, preferably not too much pink =)
*A tote for carrying my WIPs around in.  Maybe with a zippered top?  That would be awesome.
*A cowl, preferably the kind that you can button, not the pull-over-head kind.
*An apron.  Preferably the full sized kind, not the lap kind.
*Something embroidered or cross stitched in a hoop, since I've started a wall that's going to be decorated with all hoops!  Possible ideas: trees, cats,
*Fingerless gloves, because I only have one pair that I love.  I'm really liking jewel tones right now, like winey red, dark blue, emerald green.
*Little rug/bed for the kitty, because she only likes one a time and I'd like to give her more choices of places to sleep =)
*Waterproof place mat for the cat's food and water bowls.
*Something from my wist: http://wists.com/peihan17  or my etsy favorites: http://www.etsy.com/people/peihan17/favorites  Both are being constantly updated Smiley

Supplies:

*I'd like to learn how to knit, maybe some of the more commonly used sized of needles?  Circular, DPN, some other kind?  Or a how-to knitting book.
*Tunisian crochet hook, any size
*Embroidery floss, any colors!
*Wool felt, even little pieces.
*Safety eyes, any size
*Yarn, preferably natural fibers or blends, like wool, cotton, etc.  Especially wine/dark red, dark blue, emerald green.
*Cookie cutters, I can always use more =)  Preferably not seasonal shapes, like snowmen.
*Fat quarters, pretty much anything.  The ones with more subtle designs are great for embroidering on!

Hi! I am a craftylittlemonkeymama of 2 small craftylittlemonkeys, one nearly 10 year old boy and a 3.5 year old girly girl. The 3 of us love crafts.

We're in Ontario, Canada but Gramma lives right across the border from us so
mail can be sent to us in either Canada or the USofA.

I am a social activist, eco conscious, vegetarian, feminist, frugal practicer of volunary simplicity, in other words weirdo hippie bohemian  Wink.
Some themes I like are nature, earth magic, Teesha Moore, Gustav Klimt, deco and art and craft era of design, cute, creepy, creepy-cute, ethereal, colourful, mysterious, morose. Things that make people stop and ask you where in the world you got something so wonderful/unique/bizarre/amazing. I like cute stuff and earthy stuff and strange but interesting stuff and original ideas and adorable things and kid stuff and nature stuff and recycled/reused stuff. My colours are earth tones, jewel tones, rainbow brite, I'm not a fan of too much neon or pastel. I like practical things we can use, that's my favourite sort of craft.
We love nature and ecology so anything recycled is terrific.

I have a few pages of favourites in flickr, actual items but also just the style of things I enjoy

Fridge magnets of fun and funny things
Holiday/tree decorations, we have a funky collection
Wool drier balls
Bowls made of coconut shells (eventually I want a whole kitchen set made of coconut shells, utensils, cups, etc)
Stationary, note paper, envelops and cards
I am working on fiber art books and quilts so small decorated squares or crafting items for those projects would be great.
Handmade all natural soap
Decorated tshirts for the kids or other fun/play clothes


Some things I probably wouldn't be able to make good use of are jewelry, hair items, ipod/cell phone, computer or car things, key dangly (will def get broken straight away, I abuse my keys!). Anything commercial, TV or popular media related, cartoon, gangstar, overly religious, too creepy or gory, hip, trendy, young. I am not so cool anymore in my old age.
I'd prefer not to get any candy, nothing scented, nothing too large as we have a small house. I don't have room for cushions or wall art or too many little decorative things. No allergies but not fond of smoke. I'm fairly sensitive to fragrances too though essential oils are ok.
