Details of swap:
This is a SECRET Santa swap!
Your partner will not know who you are until they open your package! In turn, you will not know who will be sending to you.
You will receive your partner's info, and you will stalk them!  You must NOT contact your partner and let them know who you are! (go through your group leader if you have a question that must be answered!).

This is a small swap to ease time and money constraints around the holidays. You will craft 1 small and 1 medium item based off of your partners questionnaire, wist, and what else you find while stalking them. You will also purchase 1 item worth $3 - $5 USD this can be an ornament, candy, a candle, or anything else your partner might like (you will be sending three items in total). Be forewarned that you may not get the things you asked for in your questionnaire wish list depending on your Secret Santas skill set, but we will try to match everyone up as best as we can!


(By Time
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

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


Everyone MUST have a wist or pinterest with at least 25 items...and please try to make sure that the majority of these items are craft-able (not all furniture, electronics, books, etc!!)

Please make sure to fill out the questionnaire fully, and include all the information for your secret partner that you can. I am giving a long sign-up period so that you can take your time in filling out the questionnaire. Please take several days to think of a full comprehensive list for your partner because your partner will not be able to ask you questions, so make sure you give lots of info.

NOW THE TWIST!
The kicker to this swap is that you must WAIT to open your package! Put it under your tree or have your SO or roommate hide it from you ^_~ Well have a party of opening and posting our gifts on the 18th of December.

If you are in the United States, you must get a DC# for your package and if youre outside of the United States you must be able to send an electric copy of your postage receipt. The other requirement is that you need to write Secret Santa Swap Party somewhere on the package! This way no one gets accidentally confused and open up their present early! You will PM all of your sending and receiving info to the person in charge of your group and NOT to the person you're crafting for!

Communication requirement: I expect everyone to post at least once a week on the thread or send a message to your group leader. If you havent posted in a week, we will PM you. If you dont respond to the PM within a week of that, you will be considered a flaker. If youre going on vacation, or you know that you wont have internet access for a while, let us know! I want this swap to go as smoothly and as fun as it can. I also understand that there are some more quiet people who only like to read. For your post just give an update. Still researching my partner at this time is an acceptable post (or whatever your status might be at the time). Also, if you skip 3 or more weeks (non-consecutively) in posting, it will be marked as bad communication in your feedback. Please only sign-up if you know that you can follow through to the end!

Oh mercy!  I told myself no more swaps until next year since Im doing the mini 12 days of christmas.  But this looks so fun!  And I am almost done with crafting for my current swap.  Ive never done a secret santa type of thing.  Im going to have to think on this.
