Name of swap:A Song of Ice and Fire/ George R. R. Martin Swap Round 2

Details of swap:
It's almost spring, but everyone knows that winter is coming. April 17th is the premiere of the new HBO series, but that seems like such a long way off. Until then (and the publishing of the next book), it's time to pick up your house's banner and your glue gun. If you want to win the game of thrones, you're going to have to craft your heart out.

This will be a 4 point swap with at least one medium. As always, you can work out extras with your partner if you'd like, but I don't want anyone to feel pressured. It's a 4 point swap for a reason; I want this to be low stress so we can focus on having a lot of fun with our crafting.

Point System:
   1 point = 1 small item = up to 1 hour craft time
   2 points = 1 medium item = up to 2 hours craft time
   3 points = 1 large item = 3 or more hours of craft time

Every one works at their own pace, so what may be a medium item to one crafter may be a large to another, and that's perfectly fine. The point of swapping is enjoying  crafting your best and sharing it with someone who shares your interests and will appreciate handmade treasures.

We had a lot of fun in Round 1. Feel free to check out the OriginalThread and the Gallery.

If you want to participate, send information in a PM to send to PaleAngelLex. Please put ASOIF Swap in the message line.

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Communication with organizer and partner is vital for a good swap experience! Communication will be noted on your feedback comments.

*Everyone is required to either post on the thread or send their assigned organizer and swap partner a PM with a progress report every week after partners are assigned. Failure to communicate on the thread, or with your partner or the organizer, can get you dropped from the swap with a negative! I encourage everyone to keep in close contact with your partnerits fun to get to know them, and will make crafting for them all the more enjoyable when you know more about them.

Have fun, folks! This was a great swap last time around. Unfortunately, I just finished the Zelda swap and have no more time/money/energy for another swap for quite a while. I'll definitely be lurking in the gallery. Smiley

You should consider listening to the audio books, they are fabulous and I felt like I caught a ton more detail than when I read them.
