Swap name: IYP (invite your partner) 24: Fall Fandango

Gallery

 
It's that time again!!  This is a swap where you invite your own partner (IYP = Invite Your Partner)
If you have never joined an IYP swap before, scroll down for the details! If you have, then it's time to find a dance partner!!

- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: yes

SWAP DETAILS:
This description has been taken from IYP23, which was taken from IYP22, which was taken....you get the picture.  

Here's how it works:

In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

Swappers may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may not have more than two partners.  ** New swappers may only have 1 partner**

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like. Unless you choose otherwise. Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM me and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

 RULES:
Please check into the thread once per week.
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication for 2 weeks
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she/he says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. Once you do send and your partner has received, your feedback will be changed back to postivie.  However, this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.  

THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!

The secret password is: geronimo!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.



Here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM luckdragon and each other with mailing information.  
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a DC number for U.S. packages.  If you are shipping internationally, make sure to save your post office receipt.
5. PM your partner and organizer when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless we know that the package was received. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you so that they can make sure to take pictures to post.  We all want to see what you got!
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer (luckdragon)

I know exactly how you feel!  I've done two, one with a person I've known for awhile outside of Craftster (because I had something very specific I wanted her to do for me!) and the other time someone contacted me about something I made and posted wishing they had one, so I suggested IYP.  But to just ask out of the blue?!  Eeeep!  Cheesy

I might join, if there are dancers w/unfilled cards posted.  I prefer to dance that way.  I'm not afraid to ask anybody.  I just don't want to get rejected.  And, I'll wait and see who all responds to this swap.

This is how I feel too - it reminds me of high school and wanting to ask your crush to the big dance   Roll Eyes This time it's a craftster crush - LOL!  Cheesy

Craftsters are VERY nice!  Really, the only time people get rejected is if someone is just too busy at the moment to dedicate the time. 

However, please feel free to PM me to be added to the list of people with open dance cards!

I'm not swapping this round (I have too many personal projects I have been putting off), but I can't wait to see who gets partnered up and what you all come up with!!
