Details of swap:

For this swap you will craft ONE Spirit/Intention Doll for your partner.
I quote Craftster P_E_S_T :"You are placing an intention upon the doll, for that wish to be imparted upon its receiver."  Smiley
Choose an intention from your partners list and with that intention in mind you will craft a Spirit/Intention Doll. Choose materials and colours your partner likes and start crafting! I recommend you use material already on hand and measurements to fit a large envelope.

You can read more about how to craft a Spirit/Intention Doll in this free e-book.

*PLEASE READ THIS*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important. Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- PM both organizer and your partner when you send and when you receive.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery, and take pictures of what you make before you send it.
- HAVE FUN!!  Cheesy

I'm tempted...but I've never made one before. Will many of you be expert doll crafsterers or is it ok to be a newbie in this medium?

This will be the first Spirit/Intention doll swap on Craftster, but I know some Craftsters did make a doll before.

I'm also new to making a Spirit doll! And I'm sure we won't be the only ones  Smiley
So it is totally okay for you to join!

I would also be a newb at this type of swap, but I could use about a dozen of these! I'll be thinking about this, and what I could do for a partner.

I didn't want to use your lines without proper credit!  Smiley
Yes, please join! And I think a photo tutorial is always welcome!  Cheesy

Hi Kookie! I hope you can join us! I set the limit to 20, but I don't think we will reach that many. You still have a week and a day before SU closes! Fingers crossed!  Smiley

I'm off to bed now, in case anyone is wondering why I'm not responding anymore!
