Details of swap:


This swap is for participants of the Summer Nerd Games craftalong.  This is a chance to share your BEST crafting skills with other playersin real lifenot just pictures!  Cheesy

We will be swapping one tiny nerdy item, one favorite craft supply, and a card. Tiny means the item should not be larger than 5 inches in any direction, but is not indicative of the size of the item in terms of swap guidelines.  Combined, the tiny item, supply, and card, should constitute a large for swap standards.  So, for example, you might spend 2 hours crafting your item, 30 minutes on your card, and choose a $5 craft supply, which together would meet the large requirement.   Or 1 hour on your item, 20 minutes on your card, and $15 on your craft supply.  (Basically, 1 medium + 1 small = 1 large.)  The supply you send should be enough to complete at least one project and be relevant to your partners craft interests.  The absolute minimum amount of time that should be spent on your crafted tiny item is 1 hour.

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 1-2 hours

By Price
-Large = $20 or more
-Medium = $10-$20 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Extras are fine ONLY IF you discuss it with your partner first.  If you didn't discuss it, dont send them.

No one likes a flaker, and there is NO need to be a flaker!  If you sign up and cannot meet the swap requirements, please PM the organizer ASAP (before send outs), so a replacement partner can be found.  If you need to send late, you MUST PM the organizer and your partner BEFORE the send out date.  Failure to meet the rules and requirements of the swap will be reflected in feedback.  If you do not have the time or resources to meet the swap requirements at this time, please wait to sign up until the next round.


Swap Rules:

-You must post in a swap thread at least once a week.  This is a short swap, so thats only about 4 posts!  
 
- A tracking number is required for all senders in the USA.  If you are mailing internationally, save your receipt and upload an image of it in lieu of a tracking number.

-You must PM the organizer AND your partner when you send AND receive.  Please use the following subject lines for your PMs to help keep the swap running smoothly.

I am definitely signing up... but not tonight. I just spent from 6:30 am until 10:15 pm (with two hours for meals and breaks) working on my pre-course assignments for my class that starts on Sunday. My brain (and my butt) is sore...
