Swap name: The Great Craftster Scavenger Hunt Swap
Craftster members who are organizing this swap: TheBon, kaesea
Sign-up date range: Sunday May 28-Sunday June 11 12 noon PDT OR until  we get 26 participants. We will post partners 48 hours after  signups end.
Date to send items by: Monday July 17

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 26

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages

Organizers are aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizers meet the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap: Everyone loves a scavenger hunt! Each participant will suggest 3-4 items for the scavenger hunt list.

For example, you would write:
- something with your partner's first initial
- something striped
- something round and green

When you get your partner assigned to you, you will also get a huge  Scavenger Hunt list, comprised of everyone's contributions. You will  recognize 3-4 items on the list, because you contributed them! (See  the example list above).

Now, you will get to crafting. You will use as many items from the  list as possible in your crafts. For example, you might buy a wooden  letter that is your partner's initial, decoupage photos of tennis  balls on it, and glue chenille bumble bees to it (assuming your  partner likes tennis and bees... it would be nice if they liked the  stuff... that's kind of the challenge of all swaps, right?) A single item may count for more than one item on the scavenger hunt list. If on the list there is 1. something yellow and 2. something hot and 3. a heavenly body and you craft tshirt that has a yellow sun on it, you've covered all three of those within one object. Make sense?

You will craft at least 2 medium or 3-4 small items using as many  items from the list as possible. If 10 people sign up for this  swap, there will be 30-40 items on the list, so that's quite a few.

You should use at least 10 items on the list. The example above only  used 3. You can always make more crafts if you need/want to... I've  never heard anyone complain about getting "too many" items in a  package. Smiley

After all of the items have been received and posted, we'll determine winners of the prizes! There will be two ways to win:
One for the most items in the total package of goodies
AND
One for the most list items in a single item.
In order to be eligible for the prize, you must a. post a list of which items from the list you used and b. back that up with photos. If you can't take photos yourself, make sure that your partner can, because that's the only proof we have that you used the items from the list!

Heres some info on the prizes!

I (kaesea) am a longtime subscriber to The Sampler and, as a result, I have a lot  of samples that I am not making the best use of. For a prize, I would  put together a bunch of these samples and send them off to the winner.

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with The Sampler(TM).  However, I have gotten permission from the wonderful and talented  Marie to use the Sampler name here and to redistribute samples that I  have acquired from the Sampler.

We will also be accepting small crafted items to contribute to the  prize, if you would like. Just answer yes to that question and we  will contact you.

If you want to participate, here is the information to send to one of  the organizers:

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?
3-4 items for the scavenger hunt list:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Favorite colors?
What kinds of crafts can you make?
What kinds of crafts would you love to receive? [big and small, at  least 5]
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Is there anything you absolutely do not want to receive?

If you have concerns about receiving certain items due to  allergies [i.e. certain scents give you migraines] please let us know  here:

Would you like to craft a small item to be part of the winning prize?
[If so, one of the organizers will pm you with the address to send  this to.]

When you get your partner assigned, you should use this  questionnaire as a starting point, but be sure to contact your  partner about things they like, sizes, etc.

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

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your  item and other details about participating in a swap.

Yay! We've already got a couple of people signed up!

One thing to add -- if you're signing up for this swap, it's a good idea to post in this thread. That way, we know you'll get updates when you look at "new replies to your posts." Just a good way to keep up with important info... like when the gallery is posted! (Yup... I'm already thinking about the gallery... whee!)
