Grimm TV/Fairy-Tale Swap!


Gallery! --> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404966.0

Swap name: Grimm TV/Fairy-tale Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Teamama
Sign-up date range: 1/23/2012 - 2/3/2012
Date to send item by: 3/5/2012

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No, but if we get more than 24, we will need a co-organizer. Volunteers are welcome.

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country? n/a

Additional Age requirement? n/a

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
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES (providing a tracking number is sufficient)

Details of swap:

This is a swap for/about the new Grimm TV show and/or Grimm's Fairy-tales. There is definitely room to mix/match here! Swap about your fave characters, episodes and quotes - or your fave fairy-tales - or both!

It will be a 4 point swap - but please make at least 1 of your items at least a medium. (So you could swap 1 large and 1 small, 1 medium, 2 smalls, or 2 mediums to make up 4 points)
Points: Large - 3, Medium - 2, Small - 1

Extras are allowed, of course - but ONLY if you and your partner have discussed it beforehand and agreed on extras. It's unfortunate if one partner sends extras and the other partner feels bad because they didn't know. Communicate, communicate, communicate!!!

Swap size guidelines:
This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

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

Remember, the important thing is that you and your partner agree.  If you want to make each other a purse for a shawl, go ahead.  Just make sure you're being fair, you communicate with your partner and you meet the guidelines outlined in the Swap Guide as well as additional guidelines setup by the Organizer of the particular swap. Think to yourself with each item you include: would this seem like a large item to me if I received it, or is it more on the medium or small side? Obviously, each project is different.  These are just suggestions. Send something that you are proud of and that you would be happy to receive.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

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

As this is the first swap I've organized I would like this swap to go as seamlessly as possible! Also - if you are interested in co-organizing, regardless of the size of this swap, I would gladly welcome the help.

Please check in with the thread at least once a week, and maintain good communication with your partner, as well as with the organizer throughout the swap. I will reflect communication in the notes of feedback for this swap. PLEASE - if you have any questions - feel free to ask me! I've done a few swaps, but this is my first go at organizing, so I appreciate questions and feedback as well!

And most importantly: HAVE FUN!

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.
