A ~ A pkg. of apple flavored candy

Minimum of 5 points, with something to represent each letter of a person's name.

Could you explain what "minimum of five points" and "at least three points crafted" means? I haven't participated in a swap before, but this looks like a fun, but simple one. Might be good for a first-timer. Some of the swaps seem intimidating.

Could you explain what "minimum of five points" and "at least three points crafted" means? I haven't participated in a swap before, but this looks like a fun, but simple one. Might be good for a first-timer. Some of the swaps seem intimidating.

I copied this off of a swap . . .

Here is a guide to the points system: 

By Points
Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

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


So this is a minimum 5 point swap with at least 3 points crafted.  Using the example of Sara with four letters - you could craft one medium item (2 pts) and one small item (1 pt) and include two purchased smalls (1 pt each).  Your total points are 5 and 3 of them are crafted.  Or using the same name example you could craft a large item (3 pts) and include three purchased smalls (1 pt each).  You would still have 3 points crafted and would have exceeded the minimum overall point requirement.  Hope this helps!

I'm trying to limit my swapping but I am seriously tempted by this one!  Will have to think about it and try to resist . . .

Just sent in my questionnaire. 

I am thinking, however, that by this time, kayrun should have my questionnaire memorized!  Grin Cheesy Wink

Good to see new interest and the old gang too.  This swap is the best!  If you are new it is a very easy beginners swap and kayrun is fantastic as an organizer.   The sky is the limit.  let's just say you got my name then R could be for ric rac, red,  round, rough get it.  You could make a red bookmark   or bought ric rac, or a round pin cushion.  This swap will take you to a million places, then you just have to decide what you want to do.  kKnda like a crafty vaction!!!!!   I can hardly wait!!!!!
