- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

This is a 3-point Bird swap (even tho the title suggests it is a "Portlandia" swap; this is a BIRD swap).
You and your partner will exchange crafted bird items according to each other's likes (types of birds, colors, type of items). You will have one month to craft and send. You must agree, according to Craftster swap guidelines, to use a Delivery Confirmation slip in the USA and if sending overseas or over continents, saving your postal receipts, in case of delivery issues. YOU MUST COMMUNICATE, with your partner, with your organizer and in the discussion thread.

You and your partner MUST AGREE if sending extras - so each partner is satisfied with their package.(This question will be on the questionnaire.) Understand also that you may receive something you didn't have on your list but that it is a reflection of your partner's crafting abilities. I can't knit or crochet so I won't be making any knitted or crocheted items. But I might ask for them in my questionnaire. That doesn't mean you have to make me that specific thing. I will try to match up partners according to like and dislikes.

Here is the point-system used by Craftster for point-based swaps:
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


Here is a list of things that might fit into these categories:

book bag
pillow cover
handmade journal or book
mugs
plates
headbands
shrine
stationary
postcards
jewelry
stuffie
...

I've been wanting to get involved with more swaps and I'm really tempted to sign up for this. Need to ponder my decision over an alcoholic beverage...

It's very late here and I have been in bed hours ago and asleep. That probably explains why I don't quite understand the point system... So, is it Large =3 points, Medium = 2 points, Small = 1 point? So one could craft a large or a medium + a small? Like I said, should be asleep so forgive me for not understanding.

Yes, I suppose I was thinking two crafted items - a medium and a small. But you and your partner can agree on one large or 3 smalls or any combination. I don't really like point-based swaps but I am trying to change my own mind about this. I thought a 4-point swap was too big (for me).

Let me know what you think - I can change the requirement if 3 points is too small or too much.
