I would love to do another one of these swap! anyone interested?

here's a link to the 2nd swap

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52421.0

I would be willing to organize but I would want to limit the number of people who sign up to 14 and have two groups of seven people send 6 pairs to other crafters. this might help with the issues they had in hte last swap with lotsa people not getting all of their earrings-I'd be better able to keep on top of it.

I was thinking that sign ups could start anytime really but I would leave at lesat two weeks for sign ups and three-four weeks for crafting. so crafting would probably be all hte way through January if I start sign ups this or next week. so many people were excited by the last one I can't imagine that I couldn't get a lot of interest.

fantastic avatar by the way!

I want to join! Keep this thread updated to when the swap starts, k? I can't organize (full-time college + part-time job=hectic life) but I really want an excuse to make and send out bunches of earrings.

xflora- I hate to be a downer, but you can't swap until you meet all the requirements. They're listed here:

I said I wouldn't do anymore swaps for a month or so but I enjoyed the last round so much I would love another one.  If no one else makes an offer to organise I would do it after I have tied up the loose ends of my remaining swaps - in a week or so.
There would definately be a limit to the number of participants though.

Um, I don't think girlwonder can organize because she has 7 or more negative feedbacks for swaps already. I would love to organize this. I'm organizing another swap now and Im having fun. I'm really into this. So, if you guys don't already have another organizer I'll do it!  Grin

I've read through the boards from the last earring binge swap and things looked a little messy at the end. I understand that there were problems with people getting all their earrings and the organizer bailed? That all sucks but if I was to organize I'd make sure it worked out well.

I wouldn't limit the number of people who joined but I would divide people up into groups of maybe 5 (depending on how many people join) and then each person would make one pair for everyone in their group and recieve one pair back from each person.

What do you think? Is 5 pairs good or is that too much / too little?

hi that sounds fine to me, it would be disappointing to send and not recieve, so a small group is better.
good on you for organizing, when would u make sendouts?  8)cyndiq
