Swap name: 3 Months of Animal mail love
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Bobolink
Sign-up date range: 9/23/05-9/30/05 or until full
Date to send item by: End of each month. First send out 10/31/05
Second send out: December 7th!
Third send out: January 16th

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 12 (This is my first swap organizing and it's on-going, so I'm going to limit it to make it manageable)

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? yes

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:
The 3 months of mail love swap closed very early, so I had the idea of starting up a similar and parallel swap. This is for those of you who couldn't join the first, those animal lovers out there- I know you exist- and even people in the first swap who want to add to their experience.

Each month you send two small things to your partner, one must be handmade and one can be handmade or store bought. Ideas are magnets, stationary, bookmarks, stuffies, stickers etc... You should also include a note to your partner in each month- this will sort of be like a penpal swap for animal lovers. Items will be on the small side to keep down shipping, but definitely put a bit of work into them and some thought as to what your partner might like. The notes/ letters will help you get to know your partner over the months.
There are three month themes. Each partner will include in their profile which animals are their favorites in each theme.
Month 1: Forest friends: deer, owls, hedgehogs all those cute little 'wild' guys
Month 2: Pets: kitties, doggies, hamsters. (can be pet themed or pet toys)
Month 3: Birdies

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

What kind of crafts do you like to make?:

I'm glad to see this is up!  But I'm going to wait on signing up, because I am in the first one, and I want others who weren't able to sign up for the first one to have a chance too! 

Must...resist...urg e...to...PM!!

I say go ahead!
No one who was left out of the other swap expressed interest in this one when I put it up in new themes. You're totally welcome to join this one too and I'm pretty sure there won't be so much interest that anyone is left out.

Yay!!!
I'm clearly having first organizing anxieties. I'm much more concerned that no one will sign up than that I'll have to close it early.
