IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


This is meant to be a small low-stress swap, so the minimum crafting requirement for this swap is 1 large, 1 Medium and 1 Small and you and your partner will craft for each other. Please note in your questionnaire if you would like to craft more than the minimum and I will match swappers accordingly. Also, never forget to communicate with your partner on how much you would like to craft for each other. We are also going for quality here so make your hippy crafts are fabulous! Remember, that is the minimum...please feel free to do more if you have time/enough creativity!

Communication is vital for an enjoyable swap! Please post in this thread at least once a week so that we can all stay in touch. Get in touch with your swap partner as soon as possible after receiving your swap info. Please keep me informed if you have a problem or have a question. Im not a mind reader so I need you to tell me if you need something. 

Remember: The more details that you put in your questionnaire the more likely you are to receive a package you love and the easier it will be for me to match you up with someone who can make you happy. 

Another little note:
Swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
-it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
-it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Communicate often to your partner and in this thread, and I will send occasional PMs to make sure that everyone is on track. We want no flakers please!

Additionally, you *must* PM me & your partner when you send. You *must* get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally, then you must have a receipt as proof of postage -- no exceptions. And you *must* PM me & your partner when you receive. Also, please post pictures of what you received in the gallery. If you do not have access to a camera, please let your partner know so that they can take photos before they send and can post in the gallery for you. It is recommended that you take photos anyway in case things get lost in the post!   

Most important of all................ ........... HAVE FUN AND ENJOY SOME HIPPY CRAFTY-LOVE!

Personally the most eye-watering-ly colourful trousers/leggings I can find to cheer up and warm up any dismal day and bring a smile (even if its in a "WTF is she wearing"kind of way) to mine and everyone who passes bys face. I love the look on peoples faces when the wind blows my skirt to reveal orange and yellow flowered pants    Grin
