Swap name: Bead Soup Swap - Round 7
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Mistress Jennie
Sign-up date range: 12/15/13-12/29/13
Date to send item by: 1/8/14

Limited to a certain number of people: 20

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Additional Age requirement? NO

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

This swap is designed to be very fast, very simple, and flake free.  As such, I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I will refuse you.

For those of you who haven't seen one before, the Bead Soup Swap is a way for you to pass on some quality beads that you have, but might not have a use for, to someone who can use them, and a way for you to get some new goodies for your stash at the same time.

The specifics:

~This round is "nearly-seedless & acrylic-free".  This is because almost no one actually asks for seed beads or acrylic beads, but people always want to get rid of them.  I am allowing people to mention that they have them, but in order to sign up, you MUST be WILLING and ABLE to send your partner 1 cup of beads they will like, WITHOUT including plastic or seed beads.  If you cannot do this, please do not sign up.  It is unfair to dump unwanted beads on someone else, and expect great stuff in return.
~This swap requires you to send your partner 1 cup of bead & 1 small/medium handcrafted item that appeals to their interests
~This round is open to international swappers
~This round you may choose to have either 1 or 2 parters.  (First time swappers are limited to 1 partner.)

In this swap each participant is required to send a minimum of 1 full cup of "average sized" (about 5-8mm) beads to their partner, as well as one Small-Medium crafted item inspired by your partners interests. Sending more beads is allowed if you wish, but only after checking with your partner, so no one accidentally feels slighted.  It is left to partners to decide the fairness/quantity on swapping other sized beads, like super tiny or giant over-sized ones, or including items like findings, charms and buttons, so you can work out a fair "trade" for everyone involved.

The Small-Medium sized crafted item should be a gift for your partner like a simple bracelet, a beaded bookmark, or 1-2 pairs of earrings. These crafted components should be kept small so that you have enough time to craft, as well as pack and send out, in a short period of time.  

Additionally, this swap is slightly different in its setup than most others.  After filling out your questionnaire, I will match givers up to receivers.  This means that I will try to find a good home for the types of beads you HAVE, and I will try to find someone who has the kinds of beads YOU would like to use.  Often, this means you are not sending to and receiving from the same person.  Because of that, I tend to be strict on how questionnaires are filled out.  Incomplete questionnaires will be sent back until they are filled out properly.   Tongue  Trust me, after running 6 rounds of this swap, it's best this way because everyone is more likely to end up with a package they love!   Cheesy

I must stress that this swap is NOT a way to dump bags of plastic pony beads on someone else, and receive Swarovski crystal and semi-precious stone in return.  Believe me, NO ONE signs up for these swaps asking for plastic/acrylic beads.  You must be willing to share nice beads with your partners, that they will enjoy, if you hope to get nice things in return.  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is always the key.  Please keep in touch with your partners.  Stop into the thread at least once a week for a quick hello, or if youre going away or will be without internet access or anything of the sort, just post a message.  And in case you didn't know, or had forgotten, it is actually a Craftster Rule that you must post in the swap thread at least once.  Failure to do so could result in being dropped from the swap. I recommend doing so just before sending in your completed questionnaire. Also, if your partner goes missing at any time, please let the swap organizer know as soon as possible!  The sooner I know, the sooner I can fix the situation!

Once partners have been assigned, you may pick beads, craft your items, and send as early as you wish.  This swap, like all others on Craftster, requires the use of Delivery Confirmation/Tracking #s.  As soon as you ship, YOU MUST PM the organizer and your partner to tell them, as well as provide DC/Tracking #s.  Please label your PM "SENT: Bead Soup Rd. 7".  When you receive, you MUST PM again your partner and organizer again, please label this one "RECEIVED: Bead Soup Swap".

Finally a note about questionnaires. You MUST include DETAILED information about what kinds of beads you wish to share in your questionnaire so that I can match you up with the best possible partner, and to help your partner to design something for you.  I do not expect you to tell me you have "exactly 478 4mm sky blue round glass beads, 15 flower charms ranging from 14-25mm, and 32 1" dark green glass leaves and 14 1/2" light green glass leaves".  Instead say something like "I have lots of small light blue glass beads.  A few pewter flower charms, and some really pretty glass leaves."  

In your preferences, writing things like Oh, I like everything, is NOT HELPFUL.  I will send back questionnaires that are poorly filled out.  Be sure to include a link to your Pinterest if you have one!

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Bead Soup Swap Round 7

Confirm that you understand that a Delivery Confirmation/Tracking number is REQUIRED  for this swap: (yes/no)

REMEMBER WHEN FILLING THIS OUT, FOR THE BEST PARTNERING YOU MUST BE SPECIFIC IN WHAT YOU HAVE AND WHAT YOU WANT.

Are you in desperate need of something else, like earring wires or clasps?
Do you have a Wist or Pinterest?
Is there anything else you'd like your partner to know about you?

Totally understandable Onyxnox.  I think that's one of my favorite things about this swap, is that aside from shipping, I don't spend any money on it, because my stash is so huge.  But that's what I get for making Etsy my full-time second job!

Have you ever bought from Hackberry Creek on eBay?  They are fabulous!!!  Always good quality beads, and amazingly fast and helpful service.

Ok, everyone *should* have received info on the people they are sending TO.  If I have missed anyone, please let me know and I will try to get it to you early in the morning.  

Please, please, please remember, that you are NOT sending and receiving with the same person.  Cheesy

And finally, I'll be gone all day tomorrow looking at new apartments in the city I'll be moving to soon.  DH and I have a super full day ahead of us, so I might not be able to get on to answer questions till late tomorrow night.  Please just be patient with me, and I'll get back to you with answers just as soon as I possibly can.  Smiley

Precipitation is supposed to start here in about an hour...  And my husband is supposed to start his new job in Tennessee tomorrow morning, about 80 miles from us.  They were hosting a welcome breakfast for him, and now they've postponed it until later in the week in case he can't make it in.  So he might not even go to work on his first day!

OMG what an afternoon. Got my beads out to sort Christmas ones out, look for more to put in my soups, and make my crafted items. It is now 8:30 and I have only just finished sorting them out! Was planning on going to bead shop today but when looking up opening times realised it does not open on Sundays! Ordered from an online bead shop and will be adding some of those to the soup when they arrive. Other than that I just need to craft my items and I will be done, I think my soups are way over cup sized, but hopefully there will be things that both my partners like in each of them!

Ordered from an online bead shop and will be adding some of those to the soup when they arrive.

Will they arrive in time for you to ship out on Wednesday, as planned?

I hope your husband made it, Jennie! Good luck to him on the new job!

The computers were down at the PO today (how dare they!). I could have sent, but they weren't able to do tracking. So I'll be trying to send again tomorrow during lunch hour. At least I got everything packed up in flat rate boxes and addressed!

Thanks Abbee!  He did make it in, and texted to let me know he arrived there safely.  Now he's about to drive home.  No idea how the first day went though.  I'm hoping it was good, as this seems like an insanely great place to work at.

I keep hopping around between both crafted items and the soups. I'm at that stage where I start pulling this out to put several thats in, it's so hard to decide. I think I'll have to repack the soups. So, back to my desk...

Reminder:  Today is Sendouts!   Roll Eyes 

Amazingly enough half of our swappers have already sent out. (4 of the 8.) If you are going to be late sending for ANY reason, you must notify both your partner(s) & myself as soon as possible today, as well as give us both an estimated ship date.


Can't wait to see what you all get!  Cheesy

I sent out today, too. The nice man at the post office made me write the names on the tracking receipts myself. So now I have the craftster names on there and not some illegible squiggly lines. Ha!

I cannot imagine snow at the moment, brrr. It is rather springy over here right now, but that has happened before, winter always comes...

I'm doing ok here. Yesterday was ridiculously cold, but call me crazy... I would have imagined -15 to feel a little colder than it did. Anyway, I just got sent home from work today...You know you look like crap when your boss tells you to go home because you're definitely coming down with a cold and your waste paper basket is half filled with tissues...too bad I don't have any new beads to play with. But soon!!
