Details of swap:
We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  There will be check-ins every two weeks, so please be prepared to check-in!   Each organiser will check in with her group of swappers via PM, you must respond to that PM.   It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large.
                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

PARTNERS

Please remember that I take into account: shipping preferences, size of package, allergies and other things in doing partnering.  I know that you'll all have fun with your partner and it will be a delightful swap! Smiley  It was super hard to figure out who to partner myself with, sooo many fabulous swappers!  I'll send out the questionnaires as soon as possible, but it may be delayed a bit.

I so shouldn't do this this year.  Between work and school ... and yet ... it's one of my favorite swaps of the year.  I will contemplate and figure out if I can manage!
