Swap name: Eastern Religions Swap (SIGNUP 11/05/05-11/18/05; MAIL BY 12/05/05)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Nutella
Sign-up date range: 11/05/05-11/18/05
Date to send item by: 12/05/05

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 20 people.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages allowed. Check with parental guardian figures, etc.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" 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:
This swap started with the idea of a Buddha/Buddhism swap and has grown to be inclusive of any and all 'Eastern' religions. Everyone will be encouraged to learn about the religion they are crafting items from, and we will all emphasize respect for the religions and the objects created. This doesn't mean we won't have fun and possibly be silly. If you come from a place of respect, it's all good.

In order to focus efforts and make this meaningful, we would like to strongly encourage you to limit yourself to making only 2 medium to high effort items.

...

Let's discuss this. I don't want to limit people or over-commit anyone!

Personally, I like swapping one large/more time-consuming and two small/less time-consuming items. I prefer to have a little more time per item than more items. What do the other swapper think?

I'm in. I agree w/ minouette. I'd rather make (and recieve) one or two really nice things than a bunch of junky things.

I tend to agree with this, but I didn't want to sway the discussion!  Wink

I don't want to utterly limit everyone, but would like to strongly encourage it to be 2 medium to high effort items. There's always an element of using one's own judgement, if your really awesome special skill means the thing you want to make needs 6 parts, well, go for it. But I would love for people to focus efforts and not spread too thin.

So, before I change the swap description, let me know if this makes sense: "We would like to strongly encourage you to make only  2 medium to high effort items."
