Details of swap:


So, who doesn't love rainbows?? They are bright and pretty and brighten up a dreary day, just like a Craftster swap package should! If you agree with that, keep reading. If not, why are you here in the first place??? Wink

This swap will be to create a parcel containing 8 products. Seven of these will be a single colour (one item for each colour of the Rainbow) and one will be every colour of the rainbow.

Requirements for the actual items are at least four hand made, the other four can be handmade or shop bought. This should be discussed with your partner, but I will ask in the questionnaire if you would like to hand make more than four. You will not have the option of making less than four. At least one of the hand made and one of the shop bought must be mediums, the rest can be small. Again please discuss with your partner if you would like to exceed this.

As this is a fairly big swap I have allowed 6 weeks of crafting time. To ensure that everybody is still on board I request that you post in the swap thread once every two weeks minimum. At the end of the third week/beginning of the fourth I will send a PM to everyone to ensure you a) are still around and b) not having any trouble/worries.

A few asides firstly this is the first swap I have organised so if I do something wrong/ miss something etc please tell me politely and I will rectify it.
Secondly I am not in the best health, and while I am 100% sure I can manage this and see it through to the end, there might be the odd day I am not around/unable to respond. If this is the case I apologise now! It would really help me if if I have not replied in 48 hours you give me a gentle nudge!
Lastly, with the above points in mind a co-organiser would be appreciated, send me a pm if you feel you can help! I would request for this swap though that a co-orgAniser has experience of organising a swap!

Now onto the questionnaire! I want to match everybody up as well as possible...so apologies for the amount of questions!!

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

Thanks so much to ybunnygurl for the following, am posting here so it is easy for us all to find Smiley
Oh, I need to know...what is the color difference between blue-indigo-violet?  I don't know what color indigo is.  Like a light colored denim?
OK this is a weee bit complex, but not really. Here look at this color wheel.

See Blue?
See Violet?
See the color in between, Blue-Violet?
Blue-Violet is Indigo
or...
Here is a example with the Hex numbers used for HTML but it gives you a good idea of Indigo

And then there are some people who just have got it Bass-ackward and think Magenta is Indigo.

Thanks for organizing this swap, Ratfinkz!  I've been REALLY looking forward to it!  I want to offer to co-org this swap with you, but I've only organized one swap, and was co-org for only two or three others.  If you do get stuck, I'll help, though.

YEA!

Thank you I appreciate the offer and if I get stuck I will contact you, please do not think I am being rude, I just feel it is important to have an "expert" in case I get lost! Big thanks to lindyv321 for allowing me to co-org on the box of colour so I do have a vague idea of what I am doing and to the mods on the talk about the swap process board for deciphering my panicked questions and giving me clear answers!

Oscar speech over, let's have some fun =) well actually I am off to sleep, so don't party too loudly =)

I just finished the questionnaire, and I think it was the most thorough I've ever been on a questionnaire!  Cheesy  I also added more items to each of the color listings, since I thought a variety of items to choose from would be easier for you to partner me with someone and easier for my partner to find something he/she would like to craft.  Hope that was ok.

You were wonderfully thorough, thank you =) thanks also for pointing out I had missed "rainbow" and flagging up a couple of other emissions (mainly I meant to say at least three items, you are right the more thorough the easier to partner you thank you =) )

I will sign you up in the morning cos I really AM off to sleep now, my eyes don't want to stay open!!
