Details of swap:

We all love crafting, and many of us dabble in various mediums. However, no matter how many things we try and no matter how good we are at them, there are some things we are better at than others. For this swap we will be choosing the medium that we are best at and making 1 large item for our partners.

While only 1 large is required, you may send extras if you choose. Please just discuss this with your partner first. Sometimes there is a bit of confusion as to what is a large item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of size described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
By Price
-Large = $30 or more

If you have a question about whether an item is a large or not feel free to ask.

No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, dont sign up. If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let the organizer and your partner know ASAP.

Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once a week to let us know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet please let us know. You will not be accepted into the swap until you have posted here in the thread.

Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S. Please send the tracking number to both your partner and the organizer when you send. If you are sending outside of the U.S. keep your receipt as it will be needed as proof of sending if something goes wrong.  

PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

One of the fun things about swaps is being able to see what everyone has made. So please take pictures of the items you received and post them in the gallery. If you know you are unable to post pictures, let your partner know so they can post them for you. (It would be a good idea to take pictures of the item you will be sending just in case.)

Remember, swapping is about having fun. So please lets be kind and courteous so everyone can have an enjoyable time.

If somebody is wanting stuffed animals, I'd be willing to join.  It seems as if all the previous interest in this swap has waned.  Sad  I'm scootching right along on the Enchated Forest/Woodland Creature swap, so I might join this one too.  Stuffed animals is what I make best.
