OK, party people, here's a little culture in your ear! This is a swap of mix CDs featuring as many different languages as you can fit on there. And to make it a little more crafty/educational, let's also send decorated CD cases and a little gift from your hometown. You'll be sending to TWO people and receiving from two people, so extra music for everyone!

Swap name: Around the World CD swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: EmilyFlew
Sign-up date range: April 14 through April 28
Date to send item by: May 12

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nah, bring it on.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Definitely. Be willing to ship outside your country though.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES/NO Yes, I'll be checking all feedback carefully and checking with you about any unusual or problematic feedback from the past.

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES/NO YES

Details of swap:
Get ready to send to two different people:
1 mix CD (check with your partner to see what file format they prefer) with only songs that are not in English. Try to put as many different languages on as you can!
1 decorated CD case
1 little gift from your hometown or where you live now. (something small like a keychain, magnet, pamphlet, etc. Either crafted or bought is OK)

Requirements:
I'll check in with everyone once after I post partners and once a couple of days before the send deadline. If you don't respond in 2 days, I'll be suspending you from the swap. When you PM me to sign up, please let me know if you're not able to check craftster every few days and if you'd prefer if I checked in via email.
I'm also requiring that everyone touch base at least once with your partners when you get your partner assignments.
Sending late/not being in contact/not keeping me updated if something goes wrong WILL result in a note on your feedback! Just let me know if something's going on that is hindering your swapping! That's all I ask!  Smiley

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 your country?
Any music you really love or really hate?
Anything that would offend you to receive? (eg religious songs, swear words in other languages, etc.)
Any allergies or sensitivities to smell or materials that your partner should know about? (eg allergic to smoke, wool, purfume, etc.)
Anything else that we should know?
Are you able to take and post digital pictures?


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

Let me know if you have any questions!

Can we send to more than one person so we can receive a bunch of music? Either way I'm in. Grin

ooh, yeah, I didn't even think about that! Great idea. I'll change it to sending to two people, unless people tell me that's too much shipping!

I'm so glad that this swap was organized! I have such an eclectic range of music--from Japanese to Celtic to Hindi!
I can't wait to see (er, hear) all the music that everyone comes up with. Smiley

I'm really interested, but I don't know what my schedule looks like right now.  So... I'll bookmark it and keep an eye on this thread.   Smiley

No offense, but it might have been nice if you ran the changed rules by the people who'd already signed up first, instead of just changing it arbitrarily. I'm pretty sure I signed up before that rule was changed, as I don't remember seeing it there, and I do read over things carefully. (Though I may be mistaken. If I'm wrong, then I apologize for sounding all harsh.) I'm not so sure I can handle the shipping to two different people. One would have been fine, but two is probably going to be a bit much for me, personally. (As much as I'd like to get more music too, my budget is limited, and shipping is expensive.) So unless it's for just 1 CD, I'll have to drop out of this swap, unfortunately.

However, you could keep track of those who are willing to send out two CDs, and have those people send to the others who send out 2 CDs, to make it fair on all of us. Just a suggestion, of course.

It will probably cost $.75 to mail a cd. YOu don;t have to send priority or anything. If that is still too much for you then one is good for me. I don't want anyone dropping out. Its up to our lovely organizer, Emily Flew.

Sadly, it costs more than that around here to just get a stamp for an ordinary letter. Prices of mailing stuff have gone sky-high lately! It's insane!

Stupid postal service.

I didn't realize you were in Canada. Maybe those who don't mind sending two can and those who only want to send one can? Huh
