The Myan calendar predicts the world ending on December 21, 2012. With this date fast approaching, what better way to celebrate the apocalypse than with a swap!

You could do survival kits, ancient Myan type stuff, post-apocalyptic steam punk, weapons to fight off the zombies or robots or however you see the end of the world going down, maybe even celebration kits just in case the world doesn't end.....there's a ton of stuff you could do with this.

Details of swap:
This is a 5 point swap. One item must be a medium or large.
Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points

For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.

Because I know some people stress about doing extras/a higher point value, I've just included it in the questionnaire and will try to partner people that want to do extras together and those that don't together. This way everyone will know upfront how there partner feels about extras. This is the best way I could think of to solve this problem as I know many people feel pressured about doing extras when they don't want to and many people like doing extras. If this is against swapping rules or if anyone has a better idea, just let me know.

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

This looks like a pretty cool swap.  I'll have to think about it for a couple of days to make sure I will have plenty of time for it.

I'll definitely keep an eye on this... but I'm not sure if I have time to join. I have a huge Halloween party happening at the end of the month that I need to get ready for (and my boyfriend's birthday is the same day) but I am free (mostly) after that. Hmm... decisions, decisions....
