Here's the GALLERY


Let's do a fun, quick swap with a surprise: you don't know who is crafting for you!

You will get the questionnaire of the person you will send to, but you don't know who is sending to you until you get a package in the mail. You will have 3 weeks to make something great your partner will love, based on the answers to her questionnaire and her wist or pinterest. All types of crafting are welcome.

Details of swap
--This will be a 2 point swap (two smalls or a medium, about 3-4 hours of crafting time all together).
--You may craft anything you want, as long as you think it will please your partner, based on her questionnaire, wist, pinterest, or anything else you can find out about her.
--You will have a little over 3 weeks to craft, from Aug. 17 to Sept. 10, 2012.
--Spoiling is allowed, but keep in mind that you will probably not be equally spoiled in return.
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.  Failure to do so will be reflected in the comment section of the feedback you receive for this swap.
--Most importantly:  PM both organizers when you send (and receive)BUT NOT THE PERSON YOU SEND TO!  Keep your identity a surprise until she gets your package.  DO include a note in the package telling her who you are.

*PLEASE READ THIS!*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizer of your group know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important. Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.
- HAVE FUN!

Shoot! I just filled out my questionnaire but sent it only to Lesliehappyheart and didn't keep a copy so I can't sent to susanab too, like it said. I'm sorry!

Swap didn't even begin yet and I'm causing problems. Oy.

This one looks like so much fun! And I really love that it's a 2-pointer. So much less stress!
