Swap name: Instant Swap Cinco (5)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: LaSandri
Sign-up date range: 9/27-9/29
Date to send item by: 10/4/05 (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:
Bienvenidos to Instant Swap Cinco (5)! You sign up between now and 11:59 PST Thursday 9/29  and then you ship by TUESDAY 10/04.  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 10/04 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!
...
ERG, sorry i just pasted and copied from the last swap, but hey you guys get the picture!!!!


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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Instant Swap FIVE!!!

Anything else that you might want to add: your blog, something about you, etc.



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.

Since it says sign ups end thursday, will we get our partner's info on friday this time?  (that would be nice!)

As of right now I'm making a new rule for myself. No more new swaps, except instant swap. (It's so quick I'm not counting it.) I will finish all current swap projects, then I will only work on holiday gifts and the three knitting projects I have started for myself. I can't remember the last time I made myself something, and gifts will never get finished unless I start NOW. This is going to be a very hard rule to obey.

brokenpencil!!! i'm shocked!  okay okay. round six for you!

hey guys, yeah i'm ending the signups thursday night so that we can all get our partner's info on friday during the day... someone asked me before if we could end signups before the weekend because she only had internet access at work...i don't remember who that was... but i thought of her this time! 

i'm with you craftykate. i'm going to finish up my swaps that i got going on now and i'm going to commit myself to instant swaps until school vacation. i can't let it get out of control (and it soooo has for me!)

I'm so excited to start this!  I'm glad I get to craft for you craftykate, I have been using the bag you made for me in instant swap 3 everyday!  It gets tons of compliments.  Last time I was at Joanns the cashier asked me where I bought it. Smiley

Yay I'm excited to be receiving from lasandri too!  This should be a fun swap even if it is a smaller group!

Yea! I'm glad  you're excited. I am too. When I saw the partners I exclaimed "hooray! Pibbgirl is sending to me!" I got a very strange look from my honey who thought better of asking for explanations once he saw it was craftster related.  Grin

I want to do another instant swap! Will the next one be around the end of October?
Also, I was kirbay831's swap partner in the Harry Potter swap, and her items were fabulous.  It will be well worth the extra day, I bet!

hey aliciasjoy! i'm glad you were happy with your instant swap experience the first time around Smiley (especially since i was your partner!!) i was thinking of making the instant swap toward the 20th of October 'cause it's my birthday on Nov.1st and i was hoping to receive at the same time: haha-- selfish!)

nico and kirbay, thanks for letting me know your statuses, i'll update your status on the first page of this thread later on tonight! oh and later on tonight i will be placing in progress feedback for everyone Smiley

Yay!  I will keep checking back.  I love the hat you sent me!  It made me want to not suck at knitting, and since receiving it I have made several things. I am now addicted to knitting! (Still kind of suck at it though.)

Im so proud of myself actually.. I made myself a table in word.. and its got all my swap info in there.. like Swap name, send out date, partners, and spaces to say if ive sent/recieved and if my partners have sent and recieved... and even the organiser! lol.. I can now glance simply at it, and see where all my swaps are at progress wise!

so the only one left to receive is Nico-Tiro... it's a long way to go from Australia to Canada! I did receive from Kirbay from another swap (and it was awesome, you're in for a treat nico!) so maybe your package is almost there Nico... if you have received, let me know!
