The Tree swap has arrived!!
The premise of this swap is that although there are lots of leaf style motifs used, poor beautiful tree's aren't that common a motif. You will craft about 3 things for your partner with at least one large (time wise) item and at least one item needs to represent a full tree- not just a branch or leaf.
There are lots of beautiful ideas for inspiration in this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59072.0
Crafts can be anything, but do consider the tastes etc.. of your partner.

I'm going to state a number of rules here. I'm not mean or strict, but I'm currently having a terrible time with a swap I'm still running and so I wanted to make sure I state my expectations up front. I also think this is going to be a big swap and don't want to cut it off, but for that reason I need to be strict about communication.
YOU MUST PM me and your partner when you send. YOU MUST get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally- no exceptions. And YOU MUST PM me and your partner when you receive. Also you should post your receipt of the package in the gallery and thank your partner publicly- even if you can't take a pic.
These things are stated here in the rules of swapping (so you know I'm not just being silly and making them up Smiley ) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0
If you don't think you can take the time to communicate with PM's with me and your partner and afford the extra 55cents for a DC#- then in my opinion you won't be able to commit to the requirements of this swap, so don't join.
Trust me I'm not mean.. it's just so hard to organize a swap when people don't communicate.
Also there is a very long crafting time for this swap so I expect people to send on time. If you are over a week late past the deadline and have NOT communicated well you will have late in your feedback. Past two weeks, you will have late in your feedback no matter what (but good communication will be noted). If you are past two weeks late with no communication you will automatically get negative feedback till you communicate and send.
I also suggest PMing your partner either a week before the deadline or before you send (if you're sending early) and to hold off sending till you hear back from them. Sometimes even great swappers and communicaters just dissappear and since this is a long crafting time we should make sure we keep track of that.
I also want to consider something else, but let me know if you don't think this is right. I'll match people up and PM you your partners name, but if you could resend them your info that would be wonderful. It's a lot of work to go through all the PM's to find people's info and cut and paste it and I think it's a great start to a swap to get in touch with your partner right at the start. If you have a issue with this let me know.
OK... now on with the fun!
