Last year this was my first swap that I ever organized. Since I've already had a couple people PM me to see if I was doing the swap again this year....the answer is YES!

So if any of these things apply to you:

- You're swapping budget is a bit tight and you don't want to spend too much in shipping.
- You're looking for an easy first swap to get your feet wet.
- Heck your just looking for a swap that lets in first time swappers!
- You love Halloween.
- You love surprises.
- You love the challenge of seeing how much stuff you can get away with sticking into those priority mail boxes.
- You are in college/a parent/working a lot/just fracking busy!
- Did I mention loving Halloween?

This swap would be for you!

The main challenge is seeing just how much stuff you can get in a $5.35 flat rate priority box. At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the items need to be Halloween related. Past that...anything goes! I want this to be an easy, no stress sort of swap. Sound good?

If you are not sure what a small flat rate box check out the USPS site here: https://store.usps.com/store/browse/uspsProductDetailMultiSkuDropDown.jsp?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=43&productId=P_SMALL_FRB&categoryId=subcatMSS_B_Free

With enough interest I'll make sign ups in about a week and give about a month to craft/stuff before send out.

Last years gallery:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391918.0

Oh and sorry...but it is USA participants only since part of the point of the swap is seeing how much you can send for basically 5 bucks.

So who's ready for round 2?

I love the flat rate small fill a box swap...It's where you REALLY have to get creative with what you can stuff in there (or have an engineering degree.  Cheesy)

So, what kind of time frame are you thinking about?

Last year the sign ups were 9/19-9/30 (and I'm pretty sure sign ups closed early) and send out was 10/21. I'm thinking of doing things just a bit earlier this year and having sign ups next week and then send outs on 10/15. That way their is a month to get stuff together and extra send time so that if anyone is late sending it still should get to their swap partner by Halloween. Smiley

Just read the gallery. I did notice some swappers never posted pics, but those that did were amazing. I'm thinking about this, but the art doll swap will need a lot of my attention.

Nope you didn't miss anything....I just got sidetracked celebrating my birthday last week. I should know better than to plan anything around my birthday that does not involve cake. Wink

I'm going to go and start the swap today. I'll PM everyone who was interested once I have the swap open for signing up.
