Swap name: Green Purse Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: August 6, 2005- August 20, 2005
Date to send item by: September 10, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? No

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Most definitely.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
(mostly copied from the blue purse swap, cause its basically the same anyways)

please check out the galleries for the hot pink purse swap, the funky black purse swap and the blue purse swap. Its really awesome how creative and different the bags all were, even we were all using the same colour.

you could use basically anything as long as green is the main colour in it.

Everyone will make one green purse, and receive one green purse in return.

There have been a lot of flakes lately in swaps, and a lot of half-assed swap packages being sent. Please dont sign up unless youre willing to put effort into the bag you make. The blue purse swap went extremely well, lets continue this pattern!

Im using the same questionnaire as I used for the black purse swap and the blue purse swap, and I think it worked pretty well. I know it has a lot of questions, but please answer them with as many details as possible. I really want to try to match everyone with a partner who will make them a bag that suits them. Im not guaranteeing that you will be swapping with someone in your own country, and Im not going to automatically match Canadians with people overseas. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP! YOU MAY HAVE TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN COUNTRY! My biggest priority is going to be matching people up by styles and that sort of thing, not by geography. If you disagree, please don't send me PMs telling me how much you disagree, just don't sign up.

When you mail your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. Please send us a PM. And you MUST use Delivery Confirmation. I know that its sometimes not possible, or too expensive when shipping between countries, but its REQUIRED when youre shipping within your own country. And please ask at the post office if youre shipping between countries. Sometimes it is possible to get it, and its only a few dollars more. If you do not get delivery confirmation, you MUST save your receipt. If your partner doesnt get their bag, and you didnt save your receipt, you are responsible for replacing it!

When you get your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. Please send us a pm. Post pictures in the swap gallery if possible. If pictures arent possible, please post a description in the gallery. If you do not keep in contact with me, I will make sure that your feedback reflects that!

PLEASE TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING YOUR PARTNER WILL LIKE. Everyone has different tastes, and thats fine, but if your partner says they hate green and yellow together, DONT make them a green and yellow purse.

PLEASE DONT FINISH YOUR PURSE BEFORE YOU ARE ASSIGNED A PARTNER. Please wait to see what your partner would like. Im allowing three weeks between the end of sign up and the mail date, if you dont think this is enough time, please let me know.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

DO YOU HAVE A WAY TO POST PICTURES THAT YOU ACCESS REGULARILY? (ie, if your access is at your mothers once a month, say no!)
DO YOU GIVE YOUR PARTNER PERMISSION TO POST PICTURES OF THE BAG THEY RECEIVE IN THE SWAP GALLERY?



IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.


IF YOU HAVE NEVER PARTICIPATED IN A SWAP, PLEASE READ THE GUIDELINES BEFORE SIGNING UP! every swap i get at least two or three people who try to sign up without reading the guidlines. i am NOT going to break the rules for you. if you're just completing your first swap and your feedback will be updated before the end of sign ups, that's cool, we should able to work something out. if you joined craftster a week ago, you aren't eligible to swap, and i'm not going to let you!

Sorry, I just wrote that so that I'd be reminded that this swap exists, but I realise that no one else knows what I was thinking.
