Swap name: Design a Dream Wallet Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: loves2experiment
Sign-up date range: 02/14/06 Ė 02/24/06
Date to send items by: March 17, 2006


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

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Absolutely!

All ages allowed? Yes (Parental consent required for those under 16!)

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
Itís simple.  The goal of this swap is to create the perfect wallet for your swap partner!  In return, you shall receive the dream wallet you requested!  Intrigued?  Read on!  Cheesy


STEP 1: Fill out the swap questionnaire (donít forget to include as many details as possible!!!) and send it to the swap organizer (that would be me, loves2experiment).

STEP 2: Sit back and relax.  Or not.  If youíre feeling antsy, or if you need inspiration, check out the various wallet tutorials (as documented by jMi) by clicking on the following link:

     http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69911.0

STEP 3: When you receive your partnerís information, read the answers to his/her questionnaire.  Read it again.  Remember, your goal to create the perfect wallet (per your partnerís specifications).  It might not be a bad idea to pm your partner just to say hi, or to clarify any doubts you might have about his/her request. 

STEP 4: Now, the real fun begins!  Get to work and make your partner proud!  Feel free to pm your partner with more questions as you craft.  Itís important to communicate!!!  If you have a brilliant idea but youíre not sure if your partner would agree about that, check.  Better safe than sorry, no? 

STEP 5: When you mail your package, donít forget about the delivery confirmation!  You need to send out your creation no later than 17 March, 2006 (Friday)!  Iím going to be pretty firm about observing this deadline.  However, I also understand that life happens.  If you have a good reason for missing the deadline, please contact your partner and myself via pm as soon as possible!  If you are unreasonably (or unaccountably) late in sending out your creation, it might be noted in your feedback Sad             

STEP 6: Wait with bated breath for your dream wallet.  When you receive it, donít forget to post pictures in the swap gallery (link will be provided at a later time) so that the rest of us can gush about all the fabulous wallets (and talented crafters Wink).

Ah, sounds like a wonderful swap. I desperately need a wallet but am incapable of making one. :/ Can't wait to see the gallery! I may have to stalk those with wallet-making skills...

dooney and kookoosp: You guys are speedy!  Grin  Me?  By the time I got done posting the swap details, I was too knackered to answer the swap questionnaire.  Tongue

fadeawaydream: Aw, that's a shame...but feel free to check out the wonderful wallet creations (I'm sure there's gonna be a bunch of lovelies Cheesy) when the gallery is up.

This swap sounds wonderful. I organized the "Wallet Swap-Times 2" last year and that was very successful. I would definately sign up. Expect a PM with the answers to your questionnaire when I get the chance.

All the best!

giggleycraft: Yes, you're in!  Do you have any pictures of your 'duct tape goodies' that you can post?  I'd love to see some!

island-princess: Based on the enthusiasm of the folks who have signed up and those who have indicated an interest in doing the swap, I think this will be an awesome swap!

giggleycraft, the wallets are lovely and definitely original!  I know this is a wallet swap, but I must say that I'm quite in love with the beautiful duct tape mini messenger bag you created Smiley

This weekend, I went through my craft stash to see what I needed to pick up at the store in order to make somebody a kick-arse wallet Smiley  In retrospect, I think this might be the worst case of craft-anxiety.  Ever.     

Four more days till the fun begins Cheesy
