Swap name: It Wasn't Like That When I Sent It! Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: DreamIsle
Sign-up date range: December 30, 2005 to January 7, 2006
Date to send item by: January 10, 2006

Limited to a certain number of people? 20 max please
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes, but preferably it causes problems with those who can't send internationally
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 (I think so anyway...)
Organizer meets the 5 Arby's beef and cheddar melts and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: SURE why not

Details of swap:
This is a 2 part swap! (You'll have to send twice, but nothing bulky requiring a lot of shipping)
1. First I recommend an envelope the size of half a sheet of paper, y'know, it's something like 8 x 5.5 inches. They're cheap like 10 cents at the dollar store. In this envelope, put something of yours that is BLANK. Several index cards, a small notebook or diary that isn't too heavy, a notepad, something that will fit in an envelope that won't be too expensive to send. If you want it drawn on or something specific done on the blank item, also include some sort of note. Send this blank item to your swap partner!
2. When you get an item from your partner, you will have about a week or two to work on it. Do whatever your partner wants you to do, IE draw, write stories, decoupage... just follow any special instructions given to you and make sure that the item is blatantly and irrefutably NOT BLANK! Then, send it back! Your partner will be all like "Omg!!! It wasn't like that when I sent it to you! Sweet!"

Suggested blank items:
Index cards, have your partner write their favorite recipes or stories on the cards.
Blank address label sheets, have your partner make some homemade stickers for you.
Note pad, have your partner keep a small journal for you of what's going on around them.
Something with black paper that uses gel pens maybe?
Something maybe with ATC's?
Blank tags like Christmas tags or price tags? Maybe blank maps or tickets or something unusual like that? Grid paper?
MIX AND MATCH BLANK ITEMS!

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
http://dreamisle.dexxent.com/swap/ Go to my website and fill out my form to enter this swap. If you prefer NOT to swap with a certain person or send to a certain country or have any special information I should know, include it in the 'Extra' box on the swap page.
I tested the form and the database about a million times, but if it doesn't work for you or you're afraid to ue the form for some reason, feel free to send a good ole fashioned PM!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA http://dreamisle.dexxent.com/swap/


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Hmmm maybe the timing just wasn't right for this swap. I think you should bring it up again at the tail end April (this is when everyone seems to want the next swaps to happen) and see if there's more interest. I know I certainly would've been interested, but at the same time, I wasn't about to even think of crafting just after the hols.

Maybe I'll try it, but with graduation, senior project, and college prep going on it'll be tough.
