Swap name: OOOOOO Spooky! Halloween Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: Friday, September 23, 2005 – Tuesday, September 27, 2005
Date to send item by:  Tuesday, October 11, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people?: nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? MOST DEFINITELY

All ages allowed? sure, but check with whoever if you're too young to drive yourself to the post office

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

Details of swap:

I don’t know about everyone else, but I was super busy when the first Halloween swap came up, and I don’t really have the time to do a big swap package…. But I LOVE Halloween!

So this will be a smaller Halloween swap. Send two small sized items or one small and one medium sized (small/medium in effort and time, not necessarily in size) items to your partner, and feel free to toss in a couple of purchased items as well (like a cool halloween garland, a neat decoration, whatever, just unique dollar store type little stuff). 

You can make whatever you like for your partner, Halloween jewelery, a simple Halloween totebag, hand made decorations, whatever you think they’d like.

THE SIGN UP PERIOD IS SHORT, AND THE CRAFTING TIME IS ONLY TWO WEEKS. That’s because you’re only crafting a few things, and I want to make sure everyone gets their package before Halloween.

If you are eligible to get a DC for this swap, you MUST get a DC or it will be reflected in your feedback. If you are not eligible to get a DC, you MUST save your receipt. And when you get your DC, you need to send it to me so that I know you got it.

And you MUST acknowledge when you receive your package, or that too will be reflected in your feedback. You can either post in the gallery (which is what I prefer, show off what you got!), or you can send your partner a PM thanking them and cc it to me.

Just a heads up! This way no one can complain later that I didn’t warn them.

I will be sending out a check in PM prior to the send date. If you do not reply to that PM, your partner will not send their package until we hear from you and you will be considered to have “poor communication”! Please DO NOT SEND EARLY without checking with me first! Once people have replied to the check in, I’ll post a list on this thread. Once your partner has replied, you’ll be able to send.

I’ll be posting updates and stuff here on the first post, and I’ll post a comment in the thread letting you know to check here. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE EITHER POSTED ON THIS THREAD OR THAT YOU HAVE ACTIVATED NOTIFICATION OF NEW POSTS! That way you’ll get notice when I, or anyone else, posts on this thread.

I might HAVE to sign up for this! I didn't want to sign up for any more as I'm scared to overextend myself with lotsa swaps...BUT...this seems so simple and could probably be done in a night since its so small! hmmm...must decide!

Yay! I had to pass on the bigger Halloween swap because I am already feeling overextended with school/work/family, but, like girlwonder said, since this one is smaller (and crafting is my stress release), I can justify joining in.

(Plus, Halloween is the best holiday!)

I'm always lamenting the lack of Halloween in Aus, so it's about time I did something about it.

FYI - my partner won't be receiving anything bought, so I'll make a few extra little things.
