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:
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours
-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
-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.

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!
