Title: Summertime Anklet Swap! (Sign-Up: CLOSED; Mail by: May 27, 2005)
Post by: StarFire on May 04, 2005 09:05:30 PM
Swap name: Summertime Anklet Swap.
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  StarFire.
Sign-up date range:  May 4-13, 2005.
Date to send item by: May 27, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  No.

Non-U.S. participants allowed?  Yes.

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

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

Details of swap:   It's Summer!   Everyone is pulling out their shorts, capris, sandals, flip-flops, and swimwear!   Its time to "cute up" those ankles with a bit of jewelry!   

Each participant of this swap should create 2 anklets to send to their partner.   Anklets can be in any style, made of whatever materials that strike your fancy!  Be creative!  Have fun, and thats all there is to it!  :)

I am also adding a request of your ankle size in inches.   Generally, anklets are 9" long (correct me if I am wrong here!), however some of us have a bit more ankle than others (myself included) and this way people will have the best fit! 
...



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?

Copy and paste the Questionaire in my first post into a Private Message to me.   (The PM button is the little "IM" bubble under my avatar- just click and a window opens with a PM box.)  Answer the questions and send the PM to me.  Its that easy! :)

Starfire,

Question: should we measure the actual ankle, or the length we would like the anklet to be?  For example, my ankle is 8.25" around but I would like to wear a 9" anklet.

You can use either your ankle, or what ever length you want it to be.  I just added that so people dont just go by the standard 9" model when someone (like me) has 11" ankles.    Whatever number people put down is what I go by, I really have no idea if it is what you like or what your actual ankle size is. :)

Hi, all. Since this is my very 1st swap (woo-hoo!), is there anything I need to know...other than what's on the "how to swap" post? Our swap organizer (StarFire) sets up our partners and gives us their addresses, right? Just curious. I'm very excited!  ;D

That's correct!   On the 14th, everyone will recieve a PM from me, stating who your partner is, and their addresses/preferences.   Then you can get your crafty groove on and have your item in the mail by May 27th (send me the DC#) and viola!  You've done your first swap!   

I'm glad you are excited!  This is my first time organizing a swap, and I hope all will go smooth.  :)

Padray, my advice would be to have fun with swapping and not to worry!   I've seen a lot of people worry about being judged, but, in my humble opinion, everything I've seen is great!  I LOVE it when people make me things.  I've made some things that I think are hideous but people really love them.

I finished one already, w00t!  I'm so giddy trying to come up with the theme for the next one.  Starfire, I'll say again, awesome swap idea!  And this one is my first on Craftster, so it's even more special.   :D

Everfalling, your partner may need to grow more ankles!   ;D

Okay, I'm such a dork.  I don't have a computer at home, and I didn't think one anklet would be enough, but I couldn't check it.  So now I have one really cute anklet all nice and packaged to go.  I'm going to make more, but I apologize for the mangled package...hopefully I can find another mailing envelope so it won't be to funky :)  This is such a great swap to get me out of my constant knitting.

I'm on my way to mail mine; I'll PM my DC# tonight or tomorrow.  This was a fun swap because the project was so simple, which allowed us to experiment with the details.  I'll be anxiously checking my mail box the next few days!

Edit: I just got an email saying that my package was processed at my local po, so I should get them today!

Ok, my stuff is going out in just a couple of hours.

So far I haven't heard anything from 6 people and I know I'm jumping the gun here but I'm probably not going to be home from work until well after midnight.  So, anyway, those who haven't PMed me know who they are and if they are running a bit late, just toss me a PM to tell me!    ^_^

Okay guys, I got my stuff out Friday afternoon and its on its way to krazigal and beadgirl.   

Ive gotten notice from one person theirs is being sent out late due to technical difficulties, and I have not heard from 2 others at all.  I'm going to send some friendly PMs this morning.


Otherwise, things are smooth and I've got to tell yas that it looks like I am going to be without internet Sunday and Monday.   On Tuesday I'll get on here from school, but will not have home connection again until Wednesday.   Sadly, I had to rob Peter to pay Paul this month and Peter was my ISP.  >_<

Anywhoo!   I'll be back Tuesday night, and will update more then!
