Swap name: Instant Swap 4
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: LaSandri
Sign-up date range: 9/14-9/16
Date to send item by: 9/20/05 (That's tuesday!)

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):15

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? 16+

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:
Welcome to Instant Swap 4! You sign up between now and Friday 9/16 and then you ship by TUESDAY 9/20.  You make something nice and do your best and your partner will do the same.  This is quick turn around people, so be sure you can put the effort into it this weekend!

Due to problems with previous instant swaps, any person who sends out more than a week after 9/20 without a REALLY GOOD excuse will be given negative feedback and swap angels will be called (this is not to say you should just blow off the mailout date, however). PLEASE be aware of this. I'm going to be hard about this rule from now on.  I just want everyone to receive and well, INSTANTLY!
...



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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

I keep saying no more swaps, but I crafted like crazy last night for my other ones and sent for a few. So I'm in.  Smiley Instant swaps are too tempting to pass up.

YAY! for everyone who's in!

Sad for everyone who's not!

don't worry girls (and any boys) i plan on keeping the instant swaps going, as I too, much like many of you, am going to DRASTICALLY cut back on swaps.  but instant swaps seem like so much less commitment.  i'm here, i craft for the weekend and then i send. no more thinking about it for weeks on end, or if i made enough, or if my partner will like it... that's what drives ME nuts!

I completely agree. I love swaps, but the ones that are for a long time period don't fit into my lifestyle too well. They cause me too much stress. I worry about not sending enough too. I love that if I have time, I sign up, craft quickly, and send. One weekend and I'm done. That and I get something in return quickly. I'm not good at waiting for swap packages. My neighbors must think I'm nuts. I'm constantly checking the mailboxes in our apartment building and then jumping around like a spaz when there is a package for me.

I do the same thing. I check before I go to school, I check when I get home, I check all the time.  I LOVE MAIL!!!
lol. Oh man I really want to do this swap. Maybe I have enough change for shipping.....hmmmm.  Maybe my husband gets paid tomorrow.....
