Okay, This is my first swap so please bare with me!

 This swap is a YEAR LONG Commitment! Things don't have to be sent every month, but perhaps try every two months or so!  If you want to send more, Great!


    The idea of this, is kinda like a "Secret Angel" or "Secret Buddy",  if you want you can tell your partner who you are, or you can wait to tell them at the end of the year.    The "year" will be up one year from the closing sign up date!

Swap name:  Secret Craftser
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Me! Second Star to the Right (aka Tracey Brandt)
Sign-up date range:  2 weeks  Sunday July 18, you should know who your buddy is shortly after that!
Date to send item by:  Hopefully every 2 months or so

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Not at all!

Non-U.S. participants allowed?  Of course! (Seeing how I'm Canadian!)

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All Ages (Under 18 ask mom/dad)

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: Yup!

Details of swap:
 
Sending little bits of Happiness to other crafty people!  Anything you fancy is fine.

When is your birthday? Optional

Please let me know any Holidays you really love!  (I am a Halloween addict!  Christmas is great too!)

What Holidays do you not celebrate (may even be offensive to you)

Approximately how often do you see yourself sending your partner a gift? (I will try to match people up evenly, for example, some people may want to swap every month, and others not as often)

What sort of crafts are your specialty?  What do you have absolutely no use for?  Are there any scents, etc, that you dislike/make you sick?



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?

ADD OTHER SWAP SPECIFIC QUESTIONS HERE...


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

this sounds like fun! i'm pretty sure i'm going to sign up, but i just have a few questions:

1) are the crafts we send to our person meant to be holiday-themed? at first i didn't think so, but then there were the questions related to our favorite holidays. i would feel bad if, for example, in February, my person is expecting valentine's day related stuff and i send her a green handbag, and she's like "what?!"  i know, i'm neurotic. but i feel the need to know exactly what is expected of me! hehe.

2) since there are multiple shipments and no real deadline, will we still send a delivery confirmation # to second star to the right every time we send out a package?

sounds like that would be fun. would it be possible for you to match canadians up with canadians? that would help with shipping costs and stupid customs.

i also want to know about delivery confirmation cause that sure makes the postage price go up and if we have to do that every year..yeeks.

also are we talking like big elaborate things. or just fun little things? i sound so cheap. i'm not really. just a starving student Tongue

  I'm not sure about the tracking number thing. I guess if everyone agrees then we may be able to nix it.

Holiday things aren't required, I just mentioned it in case in December you send something Christmasy to someone who doesn't celebrate the holiday.

 You can send whatever you feel like no matter the season!

I think for this sort of swap, the tracking rule isn't necessary. If you personally want to do it for your own sake, you can, but I don't think it should be a requirement, since its hard for Second Star to the Right to keep track of it all throughout the year!

OK so we dont have to do tracking? I will for the 1st ones just to make sure, but not for all cuz theres too many. Ahhhhhhh.....food gifts, whats more refreshing than to receive a food creation in the mail. lol. I am a handbag freak, so whoever I get better luv them purses!lol

melmelon i'm not sure of the details but i know there are rules against sending food things across the border. so as long as you get someone in the states you should be fine.
