DETAILS OF SWAP

Swap Description:

Who doesn't love birds? If you are like me then nothing tickles your fancy more than "putting a bird on it". Well, now here is your chance This craft swap is for 3D birds of all kinds.

Swap size guidelines:


This swap will be for 1 Medium and 1 small. You can spoil but please discuss this with your partner, no one likes to feel like they didn't send enough. Swappers can decide to craft more than this amount, but make sure to discuss it with your partner first. The medium item MUST be 3D while the small item can be either 2D or 3D. for example the small item can be some note cards, bookmarks, or pendant.
If you are feeling ambitious you can choose to have two partners. If this is your first time to swap you will only be allowed one partner.

This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make (excluding drying, cooking, etc.), by physical size and by cost:

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

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less


 No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, PLEASE DON'T SIGN UP.
 If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let me know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once a week to let me know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let me know.

 Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Mailing receipt need to be kept if sending elsewhere.
 PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

 Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures of everything you send just in case.
*Although posting pictures is not a requirement to receive positive feedback.*

OOOOO this looks so fun, but I will be gone for at least half of the crafting time and I am simply swamped. Resist, resist. OK, I will think on it.

Would you be more inclined to join if it was extended out a week or two? I could extend the sign-up time by almost another week, pushing the send-out date back a week.

This will be tough for me at this time.  I'm in another swap that ends shortly before this one.  I just started Physical therapy (again) which I will be going a couple of times a week,  Also I will be out of town a couple of days to attend a wedding.  I think it will be a bit too much for me under the circumstances.  (I've been collecting bird patterns
but I can save them for the next round.)

Thank you!   Kiss

You're welcome. Wink I know there are several awesome swaps in-progress right now but I felt committed to open this one since I brought it up nearly a month ago. It's leaving me pretty tight for crafting time but I have some great ideas bursting to be tried and just couldn't NOT open it. Wink
