Swap name: *necklace swap*
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: fruithead
Sign-up date range: January 11th to January 21st
Date to send item by: February 5th

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yup

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: easy as pie. participants will be put in groups of three (assuming the number of participants is a multiple of 3, if not then i'll have to tweak things a bit). you will make one necklace for each of your group members (based on their tastes/desires, etc.) so everyone in the threesome makes two necklaces and recieves two.

please keep in mind this the first time i'm organizing so bear with me and be sure to let me know if i've left something out or did something wrong! Smiley

...

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?
How would you describe your style(s) (bohemian, goth, punk, girly, etc.)?
What colours do you like?
What colours do you hate?
Do you want a necklace that is fancy/formal or casual/everyday?
Would you prefer to make something fancy/formal or casual/everyday?
Any other things you'd like to add (keep in mind, the more descriptions you provide, the more likely you are to get a necklace that suits you. of course if you have no specific requests, that's fine too!)?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

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

I'll probably join this after I'm done with the bracelet swap.  I'll have to see how that turns out first.

to those who have been thinking about signing up for this swap:

i'll be making up the swap groups sunday around 5pm so you get an extra day to decide if you want to join in on the necklace making fun! so get those pm's to me by the 22nd, around 5pm (my time--ontario, canada) and you're in!

and to those who have signed up:

you'll get a pm from me sunday night with the names and info of your group members!

ok ladies, signups are over and i'll be making the groups tonight but i've a problem and i need some feedback. we've got 11 swappers including myself so groups of three won't work as planned. here's the options: 1) just have partners, make one necklace, get one...and have one group of three 2) have groups of four, make three necklaces, get three...and have one group of three or 3) extend signups for a day or two and hope for another person and stay with groups of three.

any opnions?

ok ladies, i am a MORON! i absolutely overlooked someone. i had a feeling i'd do this. ok so we have 12 in total so i'm going to stick with the groups of three, just in case people signed up because it was only making two necklaces. sorry for all the confusion!

alright, now i'm off to make the groups...

Maybe it should be next Monday rather than Sunday, since the post office is closed on Sundays?

ok everyone, you should have sent out today. now, we all have lives outside of our wonderful craftster so there are always things that get in the way of the trip to the post office just be sure to communicate if you're going to be late sending!

thanks ladies! let's hope this swap ends as nicely as it's been going!
