Swap name: I <3 Coffee/Tea Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Avian Flight
Sign-up date range: 2/15/06-2/24/06
Date to send item by: 3/24/06

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

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yep

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:
If you love coffee and/or tea then this swap is for you!

There are so many flavors of coffees and teas out there and so many related crafts we can do. This swap (like the chocolate swap) will require a minimum of 4 items: 2 of which should be edible (i.e. coffee, tea, coffee or tea flavored foods, stuff you eat with coffee or tea, etc) and 2 of which should be crafted but still related to the coffee/tea theme. Be creative! Talk with your partner to see what they like and the sizes of the items. Of course, you can always send more than just the minimum.

If you are making any food items, dont forget to take into consideration your partners food allergies or restrictions.

You MUST have a delivery confirmation if you are sending within the U.S. Failure to do so will be noted in your profile unless you have a reasonable excuse. This ensures that you are not to blame if the package gets lost in the mail. If you are sending internationally, please keep the receipt you get at the post office.

Most importantly, please be communicative! If you are going to send late, let me and your partner know! Otherwise, well assume you flaked and youll get negative feedback. I will be sending out a reminder/check in message a week before the send out date.

I would love to do this swap because I love tea and coffee so much, but it seems like everytime I join a swap something very time consuming comes up in my life and I always send late. I guess I'll see how things are looking in a few days and decide then.

You could try to do most of your crafting in the first week or two. This way you can always add more if you have time, but at least you'll have enough to send. Also this swap has less crafting as you will be required to send two edible items (like tea, coffee or food that you can just buy). Just try to plan ahead and allow some room to be flexible in case something does come up. I hope this helps.  Smiley

I made bubble tea for the first time today. Boiling the bubbles took forever! Waiting for the tea to chill before trying it.  Grin

Here's a link with more info if you don't know what bubble tea is: http://www.bubbleteasupply.com/index.php?page=what.html

The store bought ones are soo good and there are tons of flavors.

I will post the list sometime Saturday and try to send everyone's partners info by the end of Sat.
I'm trying to match partners up by interests and I didn't realize it's so hard!! haha
I'm sorry in advance if your interests don't match each others but I'm trying my best. It's good to meet people with different interests anyways, right? Tongue

Hi everyone! The list of partners is posted and I sent everyone their partners.

I tried my best to match people together the best I could but the matches aren't perfect so sorry if I couldn't get you what you wanted.

If you notice something wrong with the list or did not receive my pm - let me know!

Happy crafting! I'm going to update profile lists now.

P.S. Don't forget your DC if you're shipping within the U.S. - send me your DC number. As always, let me know when you sent and received. Thanks!

Umm..  I think we're in the wrong forum.  I don't think this is a paper crafts mail art swap.

I'll pm her and check up on her. I suggest you don't send till we can get her to reply.

Umm..  I think we're in the wrong forum.  I don't think this is a paper crafts mail art swap.

I noticed that too. I don't know why it shows that because that's not what I selected. I keep trying to change it but it doesn't budge. I'm looking at it now as I write this post and it says craft swaps so maybe it's just a bug.
Okay I think it's fine now.

Okay my peeps, I sent out a check-in email. Please reply via PM.

martmer - I PMed your partner (mandyc) a few days ago but she hasn't responded yet. I hope she hasn't flaked! I suggest you don't send till we hear from her. I'll post a call for an angel for you if she doesn't respond by 3/24.

Did anyone see the coffeecup clock someone made? It looks delicious, like a frozen coffee drink.  Smiley
