Swap name: FAVORITE SONG SWAP
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Starpiste
Sign-up date range: May 27, 2005 to June 10, 2005
Date to send item by: July 15, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All Ages.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
Everyone will select their favorite song and will receive ONE item that their partner made basedon/inspired by the song. Everyone will be assigned someone elses song to make ONE item based on/inspired by that song.

My vision for this swap is that you spend one week listening to and reading the lyrics for the song you're being inspired by. You should reflect on why your partner chose this song. Then you will make one item. Suggestions are embroidered bags, charm jewelery, journals, a collaged box, painting - whatever. Please don't just base it on the artist of the song - focus on the lyrics and their message. Keep this in mind when choosing your songs too.

If you do not have the song that you are assigned in your personal musical library I will put a copy of it somewhere on-line so you can listen to it. I will send a copy of the song's lyrics along with your partners information.

REMEMBER: Favorite songs can be really emotional, personal and important. Even if you hate the song you're given you should appreciate the persons choice and honour the song they chose through your object.

Another thing is that depending on if people are interested and how many people are involved I might consider burning mixed CD's with all the songs chosen if people send me blank CD's. I will burn them and ship them back out. This will depend on interest and numbers and is NOT a guaranteed part of the swap.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Favorite Song Swap

I also want to let everyone know in advance that I am flying back to my home on the 3rd of June and won't have the internet avalable until the afternoon of the 4th. This means anyone who PM's me or need questions asked in those two days will have to wait but I will get back to everyone as soon as I can.

edited to have the correct dates.

I really want to do this, but I'm already in a few other swaps  Sad, and I don't want to overswap myself.

I like this idea so much, but since I'm a newbie swapper and I'm already signed up for one swap I believe the rules state I cannot do another.  If it happens again I'll most likely do it.

I did give over one month from sign-ups to sending just so that there would be lots of time to work with the song. There's lots of time to think though.

Oh, if anyone signs-up and wants to change their song let me know via PM BEFORE the end up sign-ups.

do you have to pick a "clean" song or can it be anything you want?

I'd say pick anything. I'll add a question if people don't want anything explicit or suggestive.

I guess I could imagine someone picking a Peaches song and having a partner who is a bit offended.
