Details of swap:
This is a swap for anyone who loves languages. Whether you can speak/sign another language, are learning to, or just plain love seeing/hearing them, this is the swap for you! In this swap you can craft anything you want, as long as it relates to your partners favorite languages!

This is a 4point swap, and you can craft any size combination to get there. You may also talk to your partner about sending beyond that. For those unfamiliar with the points system or just need a refresher, here you go:

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

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

You will have one month of crafting time. I want this to be a flake free swap, so please remember to keep in communication; post in the thread once in awhile and talk to your partner.

To join this swap, PM Xandrigirly. With all messages please put I Love Languages Swap in the subject with either Questionnaire/Question/Sent/Received after it. Also, remember to include DC# or receipt (for non-us shippers) when PMing me that you have sent and to also send a PM to your partner when you have sent/received.

I hope you'll be able too!  Smiley I hear ya about july being busy though. If it weren't for the fact that two of the swaps I'm in end before the last signup day for this, I wouldn't have been able to organize and not feel insane!

A 4 point swap seems doable. . I have been doing some larger swaps lately that have eaten up a lot of time but have been interested in this one since I saw it on the new ideas board.

I might send in my Qnnaire tonight after I get done with my Chinese homework. I think I have sufficiently distracted myself from listening to Chinese finance news for the past 15 minutes here and should probably get back to work.  Undecided

Yay more people!

Heh, I spent like half an hour thinking on the points when I was figuring this out. All I knew was five would be too big for many people, especially anyone load in on summer swaps. I hope four is just right and not driving anyone off!

And haha I should prolly be doing some ASL stuff, but I'm decidedly shoving it off until tomorrow because I'm a bad student, or at least a procrastinator  Roll Eyes
