Swap name: Mix Tape Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Ohhdarling
Sign-up date range: 11/27/05 - 12/18/05
Date to send item by: First send out: 1/9/06

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All Ages

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:
Time to break out your old ghetto blasters, ladies and gentlemen!
In a time of profound technological advancements, sadly, things that were once cherished are being obliterated. Cassette tapes were swept aside for a new generation of cds and dvds. Now it's MP3 players. Who knows what's next?! In this time of chaos, I offer you solitude. And by solitude, I mean a totally sweet mix tape swap!
Here's the low-down: In this swap, you will be assigned to three different partners and will make a different mix tape for each one. You may use a theme if you like, such as "Music to _____________ too", but this is optional if you find it too limiting. The icing on the cake is the more traditional crafty part of the swap. Along with making the tape, you'll get to craft a new case for it. This can be done by embellishing the original case, or by making an entirely new one out of any medium you prefer. Go crazy!
The send out dates are a week apart. This means:
First send out: Jan. 9
Second send out: Jan. 16
Third send out: Jan. 23

***PLEASE NOTE: Sign-ups have been extended to December 21***

just to clarify, are we supposed to make 3 different mixes or send out the same mix to 3 different swap partners?

3 different ones! Cheesy
You can put some of the same songs on more than one tape if you need to though.

I'm happy that this falls over Christmas break so I don't have to sacrifice paper writing time to tape mixing.  Not that I would, of course... Wink

Yeah, I tried to work it out that way. I figured if the sign up's ended near Xmas, people would have finished most of their holiday crafting/shopping/insanity and would have a better idea of if they could participate or not. And then I made the send outs well past New Years to give people ample partying time! Woo!

I am getting pretty pumped about this. Even though it's caused me to have to do some math, which I hate to do.

I was afraid that I'd missed the sign-ups and I was about to cry. Really. Truely. I'm so in.

I guess my post got deleted because of the server meltdown, but it was basically that I'm in and I'm excited!  Woo!
