Swap Decree: All swappers MUST post at least once in the swap signup thread.  ABOUT BEING A PARTICIPANT IN A SWAP: Joining a swap: "In addition, you must post in the signup thread. The thread is a major means of communication for the organizer and the swap participants."  This is not a rule I created, it is a Craftster rule, and one that is enforced.  Thank you in advance for following this important swap guideline. Kiss

I reserve the right to refuse anyone.  If you have feedback that shows a history of very late sending, ill-communication, incomplete packages, lack of DC#'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.



It's that time of year again, time to go back to school.  And if you received your letter, then it is time to pack you trunk and prepare to go back to Hogwarts.  So much to do, we better get started!

In this Round of Back to Hogwarts, we will craft 1 Large, 1 Medium, and 1 Small.  If you are unclear on what constitutes various sizes, please check this post on the Swap FAQ's.

And to stretch your crafty muscles and to keep with our theme, you can choose to craft any three of the following six options...

~* an item based on your partner's House preference
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Shop
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Class
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Spell, Curse, or Potion
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Character or Magical Creature
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Quote or Magical Object[/b][/size]


PACKAGE EXAMPLES:
Your partner's House is Ravenclaw, fave shop is Ollivanders, fave class is Potions, fave Spell is Expecto Patronum, fave Character is Luna, and fave Quote is "It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to live".

You could make....
a LARGE Stenciled Ravenclaw Hoodie, a MEDIUM Wooden Wand, and a SMALL Pair of Luna's Raddish Earrings.  
OR
a LARGE embroidered Expecto Patronum Hoopla, a MEDIUM Cauldron Candle, and a SMALL bookmark with Dumbledore's quote.


You can self-partner aka IYP for this swap, if both people wish to be swap partners.  If you do this, please PM your partnering to the organizer before the close of signups.

If you want to participate, fill out the below questionnaire and send to organizer.

.

ORGANIZER NOTE:  If you have additions or changes to your questionnaire after you signup, please hold onto them and PM them to your future partner.  THANK YOU! Kiss  ~*Please do PM if you decide to change houses so I can adjust your colors on the Student Roster.*~

Dear First Years (aka First Time Swappers),
I have homework for you. 

~* Make sure you have read the Swap Info Guide and Swap FAQ.  (very helpful, very informative, and very necessary!)

~* Post at least one picture of a craft you created on Craftster or give a link where one can be found.  (This helps me tremendously when pairing.  And it will allow your future partner a peek at your work, which will make they super excited!)

~* Build up a wishlist.  You can create online wishlists on pinterest.  Or you can create a physical list, word document, google document, etc. of urls leading to some of your loves.  (This does not mean you are going to get exactly what's on your wishlist.  Your wishlist will help your future partner better see your likes and personal style.)

~* Don't hesitate in asking questions!  Co-organizer FiberAlchemist and I are both online almost everyday so you can ask questions via PM or here in the thread.  We always have several swap veterans about who are more than happy to answer a quick question in this thread.  Further, Craftster has a fab board, Talk About The Swap Process, where you can find help as well.

Oh I really want to do this one again... And I don't have to craft for other swaps... and Harry Potter... But swapbreak, and holidays and new school. I'm going to think about it, it's a pity it's such a big swap otherwise I'd be in in a heartbeat.
