Swap name: Baby/Kid Stuff Swap (Round 3)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Madmatigan79
Sign-up date range: April 11/06 - April 25/06
Date to send item by: May 16/06
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes
All ages allowed? Or 18+? Come one, come all!

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:

Because there are more than a few crafty parents/grandparents/aunties/etc out there, this is a swap of items for the "little people" (read: children 12 years and younger) in our lives. Each person will craft at least three medium (time-wise) items (or equivalent, i.e. one large & one small, several small, etc) for their partner's child (or children). If you want to do more (or less), that is fine, as long as you have agreed upon it with your partner.

Consider the interests and age(s) of your partner's child(ren) and make things that will be appropriate.

The Rules:

You've probably heard them all before but here goes...

If you are eligible to get a DC (delivery confirmation number), you MUST get a DC. If you are not eligible to get a DC, SAVE YOUR RECEIPT AS PROOF THAT YOU HAVE SENT!

Please acknowledge when you receive your package by sending a pm to both me and your partner AND by posting in the Swap Gallery (will post link to thread once swap is underway).

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO POST IN THIS THREAD OR ACTIVATE THE 'NEW POST' NOTIFICATION FEATURE. This will ensure that no one gets left out of the loop as you will know when I or anyone else leaves a new message on this thread.

PLEASE DON'T SEND OUT EARLY without checking with me first! I will send out a pm to check in with everybody prior to the mail out date. When people reply to the check in pm, I will post a list on this thread. When your partner has replied, you may go ahead and send their package. Your partner will not send their package until I have heard from you! (this method seems to have worked for other organizers in keeping things on track and weeding out flakers)

If, for whatever reason, you are going to have to send late (or worse, not send at all - we all understand that life can get in the way of crafting), please let me and your partner know ASAP. Avoid negative feedback by keeping in good communication!!

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?

How many children (12 years and under) do you have (if not their parent, what is your relationship to them)?
Do they have any allergies (ie. nuts, smoke, pets, etc) or special needs that your partner should be aware of?
What are their names/ages/genders?
...clothing sizes?
...interests (ie. animals, princesses, sports, etc)?
...favorite activities (ie. drawing, singing, video games, etc)?
...favorite colours?
...favorite story/tv show/character/etc?
...other likes?
...dislikes?
Any other pertinent information?
Anything in particular you think your child(ren) would need/could use/would love?
What are your craft skills?
What age range would you prefer to craft for (if it doesn't matter, just put "any")?
Do you have access to a digital camera/a way to post pictures?

Oooh - I missed out on this one last time!  I'm away on holiday for the next week, and I'll see how my time committments are after that, but I'd like to join!  I'm an aunt to an adorable 17 month old niece, with my second niece due in June!

Ohhh... I have a broken sewing machine!!! UGH! Ok, I am debating... I can crochet the dickens out of anything but that takes a while to do (especially with Ellie (almost 3) wanting to crochet with me... ie. getting tangled in the yarn with her crochet hook in hand!)... THe kids LOVED this one... stuff in the mail for them! It was like Christmas in March! Oh... the torture! OK... give me a day or two to let all the voices argue it out!!!

Seriously though, I think if it was extended juuuuusst a little, I would do it... BUT if anyone has a prob, don't post here so you don't feel uncomfortable...PM madmatigan seperately... I would hate to make someone wait just for me...
