SWAP PARTNERS:

*Loose rules of what to send:

All large (main) items should be crafted but the smaller ones can be store bought

Your package should be roughly:
1 large crafted item
+ 1-2 medium items (crafted or store bought)
OR 3-4 small items (crafted or store bought)

Obviously this can be mixed and matched: for example, I could do 1 large crafted item + 1 medium crafted item + 2-3 small items (crafted/store bought), etc.

Look how much she charges for the bottle caps! Its nuts, if you ask me...but that's
probably just because we all know we could make it all ourselves and how little it
would cost to do so.
