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???
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!!

Thanks so much to ybunnygurl for the following, am posting here so it is easy for us all to find
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 the color in between, Blue-Violet?
Blue-Violet is Indigo
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.
