Who loves a good book? And who doesn't love sharing their favorite ones? In this swap, we will be swapping one of your favorite books that you think your partner will like based on the questionnaire. We'll also be swapping some crafty goodies (one medium and two smalls) based on the book(s) or genre(s) you send.
Your book can be thrifted or used, just make sure it’s in decent condition. Don’t send a book that is in such a bad condition you wouldn’t buy it yourself. One book is the minimum, but feel free to talk with your partner about sending more. (I will also try to match people up based on if they want to send more than one book or not.)
Sizes defined as follows:
Large item: 3 points (A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse; 3 or more hours of crafting time; $30 or more)
Medium item: 2 points (one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf; about 2 hours crafting time; between $10 - 30)
Small item: 1 point (Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks; less than 2 hours crafting time; less than $10)
Your crafted items MUST reflect either the book itself or something of the genre of the book. You can talk with your partner about sending extras, but one medium and two smalls is the minimum.
Please take pictures of your crafted items to post in the gallery. If not, please make arrangements with your partner.
I will try my best to match up people based on their likes and if they want to send more than one book. Please remember, though, that this is to try new books and there are other things to consider when pairing people up.
Make sure to send me the DC# and PM me (with Favorite Book Swap in the subject line) when you send and receive. If you’re not in the USA, please get your country’s equivalent. Also, there is a media rate for sending books/movies/etc, but the post office might not accept this if there is something other than media in your package. Check with your post office though; they might let it pass.
So once again, the minimums: ONE book, ONE medium crafted item and TWO small crafted items. Have fun!
