Seriously considering doing this one (even though I made myself promise not to join any more swaps until school's out  Wink).  I'll just see how the next week or so goes!

there's no required amount, just whatever you think is enough. some people do one or two more labor-intensive project(s), some do several smaller or less time-consuming ones. whatever you think is appropriate is fine!

you might want to add some sort of suggested amount - sometimes it helps people who are trying to decide if they have time to participate

here are some guidelines i found that one of the mods posted about time/effort on projects for swaps. (thanks, super geek!)

Quote
By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items.
-Medium=A purse, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big= $30 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars
-Small=$10 or less

i tend to use materials that i already have on hand, so the price ranges aren't really relevant to me, but it's there in case you want it. in the past, i've tried to make at least one bigger item and then however many smaller ones i have time for. so for example, maybe the package would include a handbag, a necklace and bracelet set, and a bookmark or set of bookmarks. so maybe 5 hours of crafting time?

does that help?

I can't wait for this one to start. I decided to do something a little time consuming, so I already started crafting. I also found a great little free cross stitch pattern for an Irish step dancer.
