Title: Invite Your Partner Swap Fall 2018: Sign Up Closed Send Out 10/29/18
Post by: kittykill on September 17, 2018 08:50:28 AM


This is a swap where you invite your own partner (IYP = Invite Your Partner)
If you have never joined an IYP swap before, scroll down for the details! If you have, then it's time to find a dance partner!!


Craftster member who is organizing this swap: kittykill
co-organizer: TBD
Sign-up date range: September 17th-September 26
Date to send by: October 29, 2018

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no (I’ll find a co-org if over 24)
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?
Additional Age requirement? No


Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: yes
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: yes
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: yes
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: yes
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

SWAP DETAILS:
Here's how it works:
In this swap, you can contact anyone on Craftster and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. Make sure that you both agree on a size.  Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!
If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM me and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

 RULES:
Please check into the thread once per week.



THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

So, in summary, here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM kittykill and each other with the questionnaire including mailing information.  
3. Post in this thread weekly so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a USPS tracking number for U.S. packages.  If you are shipping internationally, make sure to save your post office receipt.
5. PM your partner and organizer when you receive.Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you so that they can make sure to take pictures to post.  We all want to see what you got!
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!
8. You can have 2 partners

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer  AND to your partner

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: IYP Fall 2018
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:

I just sent in my questionnaire, my partner is the lovely Averia. And as we decided to keep this on the smaller side: I wouldn't mind a second partner for another dance.

Thank you KittyKill! So glad you are organizing this swap! Already have an itty bitty small for KBrison underway and so many ideas for the real item. Still figuring out what to do for Anna.wahnsinn.

The project I dreamed up is well under way. It's a lot of tiny fiddley bits & pieces that could end up taking weeks to complete or I might be finished by Monday, who knows? Either way, it sure is fun!

Jump in, gala_apples!

I’ve made one item and have gathered supplies for a couple of others. Still putting a lot of energy toward another swap, but almost done with that one and ready to work exclusively on IYP. Got some fun ideas!

My best friend just left from her annual visit  :'(.  While she was here I completed four WIPs that I could do while talking and watching tv.   ;D  I had already completed a set of ___________ before her visit, as well as gotten most of another item done.  Now that my BFF left and so many WIPs are done, I'll be focusing on finishing up the items that still need to be done.

My crafting for Kathy got a good start this week. I am having too much fun making doubles - one to send to Kathy, one for my grandbaby.

Still in the planning phase for Anne - so hard to narrow down the options.

I know I haven't checked in yet, I am going to get started soon, but my friends had a big event this weekend and I spend a good 24 hours volunteering the last four days, so... as soon as I recover, I know what I'm going to start on!  I just need to recoup some energy!

Until today, all my crafting had been for Kbrison, but today I finally got started on something for Anne - I like how it is turning out, but as always, it will take longer than I initially expected. 4 weeks to go? can I do this? I sure hope so :D

Finally here, out of the grip of September, it was a pretty challenging month. But I am so happy to be IYPing, with the amazingly talented Gala_apples...*wild applause from the peanut gallery* I have no idea what I am making yet. Except since we both missed the 12 days of christmas, we have decided to do this swap as a 12 days one. Gala's idea, flippin' genius.

So looking forward to diving in to some crafting, I am currently mid sort of the small craft corner. Small corner, so much stuff. Once it is straight, I will know everything that I have, and be able to make a plan!

Post by: craftylittlemonkey on October 02, 2018 09:52:03 AM
12 days! Oh my goodness, epic! I'm not making anything quite so grand, medium packages, no 12 days, lol. I can't wait to see what everybody creates, since this isn't themed it's sure to be an incredible variety. The gallery is going to be amazing, I am so excited about it!

I've sent one parcel and am working on the last bit of the second one. I am a bit stuck, there's something I want to do but I'm not sure about the details still. I've been sitting on the idea for a few days now, usually when I do that I dream up a solution but it hasn't come to me yet. I have something else to work on today and then I'll do some sketches and see what I can figure out.

I got backgrounds made for the items that I'm making, but they were all failures in my book and need more layers. I'm going to spend some time this weekend adding to the madness. :)

WOW!  A gallery??!!  Kwality and I paired up before this swap started, and I'm not even done!  :o

I finished the items Kwality asked for (we're doing a small swap), and since I have time, I've offered to make her something else.

I made a wee bit of progress over the long weekend, but I ended up working on other WIPs most of that time. And reading and watching things before my free Amazon Prime trial expires.  ;D Now I am aiming to be all-business for a few days, since I hardly did any work for my jobs or the class I'm taking. It felt great.  :D

I'm still hung up on that one item but I did make something else in the meantime as well as find a cpl other little things to include. Maybe this morning I can try out an idea I had last night for the thing I'm stuck on. I'm hoping it will work, wish me luck!

Got a lot done, unfortunately, also did a lot of frogging. That'll teach me to read more carefully and not miss out that one very small, but very critical part of the pattern!

Hopefully I can make up for lost time and send on time, it just depends if there are any more hiccups...

I'm nowhere near done yet, but I have most of next week to my projects. This weekend will again be devoted to getting the rooms done so our little one doesn't have to sleep in the middle of a construction site anymore and I can finally find things and have a space for working again. The 7yo's room is basically done.

Oh no!! I hate it when I do that ... I'm sure it'll turn out great though :)

I can't believe we're down to the last few days! I had an unexpectedly crazy work week until yesterday, but now I've got a few clear days to finish some things. The little pile of things is steadily growing :)

(Re) Working away!

Oh, ugh, that is horrible!  Hopefully the rework is going smoothly!

I had another two very minor setbacks, one was me not being happy and frogging a bit, the second was an equipment malfunction!  Luckily, it didn't harm the project, but it sent me scrambling to find a replacement!  Bah!  I *WILL* get this done, though it was more than I thought it was going to be... there's the possibility of being a tad bit late not just because of the setbacks, but because the APC at the PO has been broken the last THREE times I went there, and I can't get there until after they close with my new work schedule, so it might be a Saturday send-out for me, we'll see!  Fingers still crossed I can finish AND the APC will be working!

Send outs are this Friday. It sounds like we might need more time. Do you guys want to have the weekend to craft and send out on October 29th?

I finished mine over the weekend. I just need to box it up. I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

Post by: kwality570 on October 22, 2018 11:58:07 AM
the APC at the PO has been broken the last THREE times I went there
I have had the same problem! One night even went to three different local Post Offices to see if theirs were working. One was gone entirely, one had a note that it was out of order, and one had a new machine that didn't seem to be plugged in. I think they're upgrading all of them to those newer machines and they are down in the interim, but who knows? I even searched online on the USPS website for an update and it said that there were none near me geographically. Very frustrating. I love the automated postal center and have a hard time getting to an open post office during open hours as well.

I mailed my package to LadyBugsandBumblebees last week (and I think she received on Saturday!). I have my package done for craftylittlemonkey, but after finding out that it will be $47 to mail the one pound package to Canada, I'm rethinking what's in the box. I still have time to make some additional "lighter" items instead of what I included.

I've just had another unexpected addition to my workload this week - still aiming to mail on Friday if I can, but a couple of extra days wiggle room could be helpful ...

It seems unfair to want more time when my partner has already sent but I do anyhow. I had another idea, & then another one. I'd like to see if I can make them in time :).

But when it's your partner who ultimately benefits by receiving more goodies, hey, sounds good to me!

Yeah, what she said! :D I only sent early because I knew how much madness would be coming this week and I needed to cross something off my to-do list. (It's good madness but still stressful!)

I would LOVE the extra weekend!!!  I might not be able to send until Monday, anyway, so....  :D

This project is a bit more than I thought, and I'm still not even sure it will turn out well! Argh!

I definitely want the extra time. I'm hoping to devote the whole day to the last few things I have to do, but it would be good to have a margin in case things go wrong.

So I've officially finished all the crafting. One package is going out tomorrow and the other one is waiting for something to dry.

Oh and I forgot there was something else I wanted to do, so the weekend will be useful!

Oooh, extra crafting time, that's great! I've been trying to get this one project done and it is just not something I can be any faster on, quite the opposite. Whenever I try to speed up accidents happen. So I'm taking it easy.

At least I can finally move the furniture into the newly painted craft room after work tomorrow! I have no idea how long it will take to get all the stuff settled back in (especially as there are some shelves still missing), but yay!!! Space and storage and a desk! I can set up shop!

And sent. I wanted to keep everything I made. Not sure if that's a good sign or not, I'm a bit of a weirdo :D.
