Swap name: The Little Visitor Swap- Take 2!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: americandemockracy
Sign-up date range: December 27-January 27
Date to send item by: March 18, tentative

AS OF NOW, ALL SIGN-UPS SHOULD BE SENT TO CLASSYCRAFTER!!!

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Erm... no.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? That would be fabulous!!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, but under sixteen, ask yer parents

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: Heck Yeah!!

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: Heck Yeah!! In addition, you must of been a member for at least two months and have thirty posts (I know this sounds really strict, but due to complications in the first swap, I've decided to revise the qualifications.

Details of swap PLEASE READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY:

Wouldn't little stuffy love to see the world? Mine would!! Here's the dilly-o. Send stuffy dearest and certificate to your partner (the certificate being "I hereby trust you with my stuffy dearest for the next period of a month and half, treasure him and love him yadda yadda, which I'll prolly publish to the internet and you can print off or design your own, this is so there are NO FLAKERS... Certificate coming soon) by February 3. In turn, receive stuffy from partner. Bring stuffy around to eight places in your hometown or in a nearby city, to get the feel of your area. Take pictures and collect memorabelia (i.e. postcards, movie stubs) and affix it in a small scrapbook of your making along with captions. Last but not least, design an outfit for the stuffy reflecting your times together and send back to your partner, by (tentatively, depending on how everyone is doing) by March 18th.

Got it? It's a lot to stew over, and think before you deside to join, seeing as this swap is a tad more involved than some other swaps. Your pm to me is a binding contract,  the sign up period is long, so... if you're interested, and you've thought it over... fill out the following questionaire.

Criteria:
I have been a member of craftster for two (2) months and posted thirty (30) times.
I will send off my stuffy to my partner
I will take my partners stuffy around my town and document our adventures in a scrapbook
I will make stuffy a new outfit, before sending him home with the scrapbook (and a letter? that would be cool) to his partner
Promist to log into craftster at least once every two weeks to check in, or pm your organizer if you have a crisis/are going on a trip, won't be online for a while... (we are VERY understanding, but we'd like to know what's going on!)

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

I'm really hoping that I hear back from classycrafter- she volunteered a while ago -honest!- but I haven't heard back from her!

Think of it this way....if you have a little visitor they can help you with the other swaps. Smiley Cheap stuffy labor. LOL Just kidding. Have no fear any stuffy sent to me will not be cleaning my house.  Cheesy

Has anyone decided what animal to send yet?

I think I will send George, one of my 20 something monkeys.

My ex-boyfriend gave him to me as a surgery/birthday present.

I'm just not sure if I can sleep without him... Embarrassed

I think all of mine are going to have to audition.  Cheesy DH says to send Boston our bear from Build A Bear, but I am thinking Cinnamon, another bear we have. The dog wants to send one of his 'babies' but he doesn't understand they would have to get washed first. I'm also thinking of making a kitty stuffy to send.
