Swap name: Sea Swap!

Sign-up date range:
Monday May 8th - Monday May 19th
Date to send item by: June 9th! This gives lots more time than my silly head had thought of before!

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed?
Of course!

All ages allowed? Or 18+?
All ages; if you are under 17 though, please ask a parent first if it's okay that you're giving your info out for the swap!

Organizer will check feedback of all participants and assure that the swaps that they are in will not hinder their participation: Yes

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions:
Yes

Details & Rules of swap:

1A. Please note that this is not a beach swap but a sea swap. Beach themed items should really only be crafted for the smaller items or if you want to throw in other goodies -- I will be very disappointed to see a bunch of beach things as people's large gifts (think flip flops/jandals, a sand pail, towels, umbrellas, that kind of stuff). I'm not trying to sound like a pain, but it's called a sea swap for a reason! Wink Think sea creatures, waves, reefs, sea vessels, sailor images, bold navy and white stripes, lighthouses on the sea, seagulls, sunken ships with treasure, seashells, anchors, seaweeds, etc etc.
1B. You will craft one (1)  large sea themed item and two (2) to three (3) smaller items. You can feel free to add more to your swap package, bought or made, but those are the minimum of crafted items you must send. You have two weeks to create your package ladies & gentlemen, so please put the time, care, and effort into sending someone a gift you would like to see yourself get (by this, I mean QUALITY!)!
2. A DC# is required for this swap if you are sending withing your own country. If you are shipping internationally, it is not required. If you cannot spend the extra $.50 for a DC, please do not sign up. A DC# aids in tracking and locating packages, and really helps prevent flaking! Feedback will be given at the end of the swap, all at once.
3. You must communicate with me and your partner throughout this swap -- communication normally leads to happy craftsters. Bad communication WILL be noted in your feedback, as well as late sending. I will also hound you if you do not communicate - I will PM you many times, which will make me look like a pain, so I'll be trying to make a point of saying "hey! you! write back dangit!" If you send your package more than one week late, you will have negative feedback until you have sent your package. Once your package is received, you will have positive feedback but late noted in your profile. (If for any reason you can't send on time or need to pull out of this swap, please PM me ASAP so I can make other arrangements or let your partner know.)

Attn Newbies! You MUST read the swap info page if you want to participate as your first time. I will NOT answer questions about swapping in this thread or through PMs, sorry. I don't have the time and there is plenty of information already here if you look. The page is here:

(Remember these are just quick ideas I whipped up in a search and aren't things you have to make, just there for inspiration. I used to check Anthropologie for sea inspired clothing and always found something neato, too.)

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap: Sea Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?:
Do you understand how swapping works (You must read over the swap info page if you want to participate in this and you are a newbie. I will NOT be answering questions such as "How does swapping work?" at all, sorry.)?
Do you have daily access to a camera in order to photograph your received or sent package?

What kind of items do you craft / make?
What kind of items do you think you would like to send?
What kind of items would you like to receive?
What items would you hate to receive?

Favorite themes for the sea?
Least favorite themes for the sea?
Clothing sizes / Jewelry sizes?
Do you have any allergies?

*Please answer these questions with detail if possible. My theory is the more a person knows about their partner, the better the chances are for their partner to really adore what is being sent to them. Think of this as a way to make a new pal, get to know your partner, please!*

I really want to join this one, but I'm away for a week mid May, and I don't think I'd have the time for this unless the send-out was extended! Sorry!
I'll be drooling over your oceany craftiness though!

I can't really, it'd break the rules that everyone else has to abide by with other swaps. Normally two weeks is tons of time, how come that wouldn't be enough?
