This is meant to be a fun, chilled out swap, so the minimum crafting requirement for this swap is 1 large, 2 Medium and 2 Small. Don't forget to communicate with your partner on how much you would like to craft for each other. Usually for this swap, people craft waaay more than the minimum requirement, so agree beforehand if you are going to spoil each other, so that no-one is left feeling embarrassed! We are also going for quality here so make sure your hippy crafts are fabulous! Remember, this is the minimum...please feel free to do more if you have time/enough creativity!

Communication is vital for an enjoyable swap! Please post in this thread at least once a week so that we can all stay in touch. Get in touch with your swap partner as soon as possible after receiving your swap info. Please keep me informed if you have a problem or have a question. I’m not a mind reader so I need you to tell me if you need something.  

Remember: The more details that you put in your questionnaire the more likely you are to receive a package you love and the easier it will be for me to match you up with someone who can make you happy.  

Another little note:
Swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
-it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
-it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Communicate often to your partner and in this thread, and I will send occasional PMs to make sure that everyone is on track. We want no flakers please!

Additionally, you *must* PM me & your partner when you send. You *must* get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally, then you must have a receipt as proof of postage -- no exceptions. And you *must* PM me & your partner when you receive. Also, please post pictures of what you received in the gallery. If you do not have access to a camera, please let your partner know so that they can take photos before they send and can post in the gallery for you. It is recommended that you take photos anyway in case things get lost in the post!    

Most important of all................ ........... HAVE FUN AND ENJOY SOME HIPPY CRAFTY-LOVE!

I'd love to do this, but not sure I can commit to a 9 point swap. Looks like I have a couple weeks to decide though.

That's just how I added up a large, 2 mediums and 2 smalls. While something like that often gets made, it's awfully hard to commit to that as the minimum. It's cool. I'll be stalking the gallery, for sure.

This is why I decided to look at it as craft hours instead,my first thought was " I can't do that much!" but then realised that yeh,actually I can and do but usually as an "above & beyond" thing rather than the minimum and I know I'm not alone in this.
