Swap name: Shaun of the Dead Mini Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: tucanchild
Sign-up date range: 2/14/06-2/21/06
Date to send item by: 3/7/06

Limited to a certain number of people?: YES, this is a small swap because it is my first Embarrassed so I will only be letting 10 die-hard, British humour enjoying, zombie loving craftsters in it.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? YES

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages allowed

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:
Shaun: Did you know that on several occasions... he touched me?

 Fairly straightforward- this is a craft swap for the movie Shaun of the Dead. Sew some zombies, craft a minature of The Winchester, knit Dianne's cap, etc. In keeping with the "mini-ness" of this swap, please craft either one major project or two/three little ones.
...
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 the US?
Given the amount of swearing in the movie, would you be OK with objects containing questionable language?
Who is your favorite zombie (Ed, Mary the checkout girl etc.)?
Who is your favorite non-zombie?
Favorite scene/line (check out http://imdb.com/title/tt0365748/maindetails for details)?
What do you craft?
What craft/s would you like to receive?
Anything else we should know?

Please remember to PM your partner and ask any craft-specific (clothing size, allergies, etc) questions that you will NEED to know!!!


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.

Yippee!  A round robin  Grin  I dunno why I find that so funny.

I'm a total newbie to the swap process.  I've read the rules, but I was wondering...do we pm our partners and ask them/tell them specifically what they want/are getting, or do we just ask them questions to find out what they like and then make what we deem appropriate?  Sorry if it's been covered somewhere, I just want to be the best partner I can be  Kiss

Oh, and miss_katonic...than ks for the kudos on the icon...DD is my favorite band!

You can PM them and ask them what they are hoping for but the funnest (so not a word) way to do it is ask them some questions and surprise them. Again on the surprise theme, don't tell them what you're making unless it's something like a custom shirt or something and you need to know measurements or allegeries, etc

Hope that helped Cheesy

Hello all!!

 This is just to let you know that I am giving you all an extension on the mail-out date. Why am I being so kind? Well, last night I was in a car accident and now I have a bruised chest wall and a few cracks in my ribs. So I'm under the weather; more than under the weather- totally and completley crap-tastic. So I figured, if I need more time to craft my Shaun of the Dead goodness, y'all should get it too.

So in summation:

-the send out date has been extended to MARCH 10, 2006 (of course, you can send out before that if you wish)

-painkillers make me highly verbous

Oh no!  I'm so sorry to hear about the accident.  I hope you'll get plenty of rest so you can get back to feeling like Fried Gold! Grin

Okay, but seriously, my thoughts are with you and I hope you feel better soon.

my goodness, and she continues to craft! that's dedication, lady!  I hope you're doing alright.  I may take advantage of those few extra days, but I'll feel guilty because I don't have any excuse nearly as sufficient as a car accident...

Hey there hi there ho there!

Sorry, it's the vicodin.

Anyhow, just a reminder that the NEW send out date is MARCH 10. Please remember to send me a pm when you've sent your package; please also to remember to get a tracking confirmation number (if you can) and send that to me as well.
