Are your kids feeling crafty? Do your kids like to 'borrow' items from your swap packages? Here's a swap for them. Lets get our kids to craft for each other and receive their own packages!

Swap name: By Kids For Kids Holiday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Crafty Butterfly (please remember the space between the two words when messaging me. messages sent without the space won't get to me)
Sign-up date range: 10/3-10/21
Date to send item by: 12/3 (international swappers please check postage times and send early if possible to make sure item arrives before December 24th)
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No- I will recruit a co-org if needed. Any volunteers?
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Additional Age requirement? Participating children should be between 3 and 15 years old. If there are younger siblings (1-2 years) that would like to join in and are capable of doodling/coloring please list them and we'll see if we can match them up as well.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES/NO
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

Details of swap:
Each child will be making one small gift and if at all possible one ornament and one card as well. If the holiday rush attacks you suddenly then it is okay to purchase an ornament and card instead of making them. The small gift should take no more than 2 hours to craft and cost no more than $10 in materials. Here are some ideas: T-shirt, bag, picture frame, hand puppet, box, puzzle, piggy bank, jewelry set, etc. I will try to match kids up as close in age and gender as I can. The idea is to keep this a fairly small swap that would be easy to fit in around school and other activities. If you want to send extras please consult with your partner.

Communication request: It would be nice to keep the messages/chat on this thread goign so that we know everyone is still around. Please keep in touch with your partner via PM or on the message board every week or two once sign ups close. One week before send outs I will send everyone (unless you've sent already) a PM to check in on progress and make sure everyone is still alive and crafting. Smiley

Sent in our questionnaire! The boys will be so excited. I mentioned the idea to them the other day and they were ready to sign up then. ^_^

I'm bringing sexy back, I think I dropped it somewhere between the donut shop and the Cheesecake Factory.

Will talk to munchkins after school today. 

Do we send in one questionaire per child or have each child fill out the questionaire part and send them all together in one email?

I love to swap ATCs. Let me know if you're interested.

I texted my husband at work to see if he's okay with it, and then when el kiddo (my stepdaughter) is home I'll see if she's interested! I'm sure she will be--she LOVES crafting and she'd probably get a huge kick out of the whole swap process.
Might be sending in a questionnaire later today!
