Swap name: Day of the Dead Craft/Shrine Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: July 2, 2005- July 9, 2005
Date to send item by: August 6, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? MOST DEFINITELY

All ages allowed? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

Your swap item could be random Day of the Dead type crafts, a Day of the Dead shadowbox with skeletons, or it could be a shrine for an actual person (which is really what its all about anyway). Its pretty open to interpretation, as long as you try your hardest to make something your partner would like. You will make either a shadowbox or shrine, and maybe one other little thing. If youre doing a craft instead, do one bigger, more time intensive thing (equivalent to a shadowbox or shrine), and then a little thing, or 2-4 little things. That sound fair?

For inspirations, please search Craftster for some of the awesome Day of the Dead stuff that people have posted. You can also search google, Ive been super inspired by images Ive found using the image search. Its a good idea to search both for Day of the Dead and dia de los muertos. And Ive been really inspired by some stuff Ive found on ebay by searching under those two phrases too.

Searching is a good way to learn more about this holiday as well.

If you check out this site http://www.azcentral.com/ent/dead/teachers/ and click on click here to download the education packet, you get fun stuff like a word search and colouring pages!

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

Hi everyone.

First, an apology. I completely forgot about sending you all reminder PMs a week before the mail date. I'm terribly sorry, the past few weeks have just flown right by.

But everyone seems to be doing well. A few of you have sent, and some have even received! I'm totally impressed not only with your speediness, but also with the pictures in the swap gallery (okay, impressed and slightly intimidated by those!).

Here's the list that i'll be updating. Everyone has now sent!

If your name is in blue, you've both sent and received.
If it's still purple, it's cause you haven't recieved yet.

Aelphaba - sent, recieved
Rocknroll sent, received
Rocketlettuce sent, recieved
BlueBlythe - sent, recieved
Mellyp - sent, recieved
Rackycoo sent, received
Chibiwakki - sent, recieved
Megantron - sent
Stopmoshun sent, recieved
Smarmyclothes - sent, recieved
Viciouskittie - sent, recieved
crafty_dame sent, recieved

Please let me know if the list is wrong!

Okay, everyone's gotten back tome, feel free to mail! Let me know when you do!

If your week has been as crazy as mine, please let me know! Extensions are okay, as long as we communicate. I think i'm going to have to mail mine on Sunday or Monday tuesday?, I forgot to factor drying time into my crafting schedule!

Mail out date is Saturday, August 6th. Please don't post pictures in the swap gallery until your partner tells you that they have received, it ruins the surprise!


ALSO, I don't usually update feedback until the swap is complete. If you need your feedback done earlier than that (i can't remember if any of you are first time swappers), please let me know! i have no problem doing it early, you just have to ask.
