I signed up, this should be really fun. I'm sure I'll send way before Halloween but thats alright. Will the send out days always be the last day of each month (just curious). Thanks for organizing.

You should send out whenever you have the items ready, really. But absolutely no later than the last day of the month. I'll specify that more clearly in the first post. Thanks for mentioning it!

I've decided that since so many people expressed an interest in this so quickly to go ahead and up the limit to 12 instead of 10. I figure I can handle two more people signing up and that way a couple more people will be able to participate. So! 8 spaces left, everyone!

Hi all!
I'm so thrilled with the super fast response. I can't believe the reaction this swap has had.
I still have to check everyone out but unless there's someone who doesn't qualify then the swap is full! I wish I could take on more people but I don't want to push myself too far on my first swap. I may very well set up a round two though, since there's been such a great response.

I'll pm everyone with their partner's info asap!

woo-hoo!

I'm glad we don't have to wait until 09/30 to find out who our partner will be!  I'm really excited about this one.  

Tenika, I just looked at your website & your tees are SO cool!   ;)

I'm so excited, I never thought that so many people would be interested. If this goes well there will definitely be a round two. And hopefully I'll be able to let more people sign up then.

I've changed the thread title but I'm going to wait to move it until I've had the chance to check everyone out.

Woo! Everyone checks out. We even have several swap angels participating. And one lucky person who will be starting their first swap ever with this one.

Moving the thread!

Yeh, I can't wait to find out who my partner is. One quick question: Do we have to send all three things at once or to we just have to have all three things sent by the 31st. I love getting mail and it would be fun to get three different packages a month too. Just curious. Thanks so much for organizing!

That's completely up to you and your partner. Just remember though that every package will require a DC# so it will probably raise your shipping costs to mail them separately. However, if you wanted to put the main stuff in one package and then a few small neat little things you've got for them in another that would be a pretty cool surprise. (anything that you send that isn't on the list of options doesn't need a dc #. The dc # is just to help prove you didn't flake on sending what was required if it should not arrive for whatever reason.)

Speaking of which, everyone remember, that although you have to choose things from the options for every month you can also mail additional stuff as well! If you find the perfect thing for your partner and simply must surprise them, go ahead! Everybody loves getting something unexpected and wonderful in the mail.

I feel so awful that there are so many people who can't sign up! I'll definitely have to set up a round two for you guys.

Post by: Bobolink on September 22, 2005 11:27:25 AM
Maybe I could organize a parallel swap? I've been kind of wanting to organize one. I'd also limit size cause keeping track of people for three months is a long time.


Title: Re: 3 Months of Mail Love (SIGNUPS OVER! ; First mailing by 10/31/05)
Post by: quack on September 22, 2005 11:30:29 AM
Sure! Please, feel free. Maybe we could even combine the swap galleries and it be a giant swap consisting of a few different organizers...Hmm. Anyway, I'll probably still start another round of it once this one's finished but by all means go ahead and use the idea for another swap to happen right now. I know there are several people that expressed interest that weren't able to sign up.

Post by: Bobolink on September 22, 2005 11:37:07 AM
Now that I think about it, I think maybe I'll do something similar but a bit different. For my first swap it would be fun to come up with my own idea- not that yours isn't great.

Ok, I just came up with an idea for a parallel swap. People could join both if they wanted. I'm going to keep the items down for each month to allow that:
Three months of Animal love.
Month 1: Forest friends: deer, owls, hedgehogs all those cute little 'wild' guys
Month 2: Pets: kitties, doggies, hamsters. (can be pet themed or pet toys)
Month 3: Birdies
Each month send small hand made item and one either store bought or hand made item. Items will be similar in idea to this one, stationary, stickers, bookmarks, stuffies etc..
I'm going to post this in the new themes section to see if it gets a response and I'll add a link here too.
Anyone think it's a good idea?

That's cool, I think it would be better that way.

I just proposed my parallel animal mail love swap in new themes. Take a look and tell me what you think.

I'm so glad I signed up when I woke up to that PM a few hours ago instead of waiting until I was here at school. I knew it would sign up fast, but that must be a record!!
Also, I must state again: I am out-of-my-mind excited about this swap!

popping in for a bit to say hopefully partners will be given out sometime early tonight, today so far has been crazily busy and it shows no signs of stopping. have to go through and choose who gets who as I don't want it to be completely random.

You should really check out the animal swap mentioned on the previous page. Its related and it sounds jus as great!

Post by: quack on September 22, 2005 07:41:05 PM
I'm about to start matching people up! Expect partner info to be arriving very soon. (A couple of people may have to wait longer as I'm sorting out some details with people who didn't provide their full info. I'm working on getting that settled as fast as I can.)

If you've joined, please read this:

There were a few things I wanted to make sure everyone knew before we started sending.
First off, I mentioned this already, but remember you can send your packages whenever you like, so long as you send them before the last day of the month and no later. If you are going to be a day or two late PLEASE let your partner and I know. If you want to choose a specific day for the two of you to mail out, that's fine, just work it out with your partner.

Although you have to choose items to send based on the list of options (so that things are pretty even as far as who gets what) you are more than welcome to send anything extra that you would like your partner to have. Everyone likes fun surprises, right?

You MUST have a DC# for all packages containing the items from the list of options. If you don't give me a DC# and your package doesn't get to your partner, you WILL receive negative feedback. No exceptions. Anything that you send in addition to the main items, if you send it in a different package, doesn't require a DC#.

Don't forget your card that tells a little bit about you! A short bio, some of your favorite things, that sort of stuff. It's to help us get to know our partners and craft them items they'll love so the less vague you are the more likely you are to receive something perfect for you.

I think that's it. Sorry if I'm too detailed on this, it's my first time organizing and it's not your everyday swap so I want it to go as smoothly as possible.

Post by: quack on September 22, 2005 08:43:19 PM
Okay, I've just posted the partners on the main post of this thread. If your name is on the list but you have not received your partner's info in a pm, PLEASE MESSAGE ME. Craftster went down for maintenance while I was in the middle of sending out the pms and I want to make sure everyone got theirs.

sewwabisabi, looks like you're stuck stalking me!  ;D Oh, and I should mention that you haven't received a pm yet cause I haven't gotten my info typed yet. Oops! I didn't expect the response to be so fast. I'm doing that now and you'll have my info in a bit.

I am sooo excited! I hope everyone has a lot of fun with this.

Ah, that's so cool. I tried to pair everyone up as best as I could based on interests, I hope everyone is happy with their partner. I also had to of course factor in shipping preferences too.

Speaking of which...
I want to thank everyone who offered to ship internationally. A lot of us, including myself, simply couldn't this time so I appreciate everyone who volunteered, it helped us out quite a bit.

Hey all! I've gone ahead and posted a new gallery for this swap because someone's already sent out. You can find it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55624.0

Be sure to post pictures of your stuff when you get it. If you can't post pictures let your partner know so they can hopefully take pictures of it for you before they send it off.

I haven't been sending out dc numbers to the receiving partners because I'd like for when they get their stuff to be a surprise. However, I was rethinking this today and was wondering which everyone would prefer? Would you rather be given the dc# only if there's a problem and let your stuff coming be a surprise or would you rather I pm you if your partner has mailed?

Just a head's up everyone! The due date was 4 days ago and I've only gotten a few dc's and only a few people have received. Please get these packages sent... I'm going to be pretty understanding for this swap because it seems like a lot of us, including myself, got swamped with last minute things that we didn't expect and haven't been able to craft as much as usual. But still, please don't send later than Monday the 7th unless you contact me and your partner with information as to why you're sending so late. Thanks!

Post by: quack on December 16, 2005 09:20:03 AM
I don't have much time right now but firstly I want to publicly apologize for being what I feel has been a fairly lousy organizer. there have been personal, professional, and physical things that have happened since I first had the idea for this that have been outside of my control that have affected this swap. I am really sorry that I haven't been the organizer I should have been.

Also, we have a major flaker in our midst which I'll go into further once I'm able to post again. I will probably be calling for a swap angel for one of our swappers.

I have more I want to say on both these matters but it will have to wait until I have more time.

I'm wondering if quacks parter sewwabisabi has received anything from her. Maybe sewwabisabi knows something we dont?

I know above she said there was something going on with her... but still.

Hmm...

I pm'd her (to offer help finishing up the swap) and the organiser of a swap she's active in (she's not communicating well but not flaking either). 

I'm going to PM a mod about it and hopefully we can get this all sorted out!  Who else is waiting on feedback??? or your package???

My last months package from tenika says it arrived according to the dc, but it never did. Is their anything we can do? I feel bad expecting her to make a ton of stuff again so if not, that is okay too. Any advice?

Ok - I just PM's Morning Star (a swap mod) and told her the story and asked what we could do.  As far as I know when this happens we all agree on someone to take over and that person can give feedback and finish up the swap.  I'll post when I hear back from her!

Lv2ScrpBk - that's a tough call!  Have you PM'd Tenika about it?  Maybe you guys can work something out where she makes a small replacement package to send?  Granted she did get a DC so technically she's fulfilled her side of the swap - that sucks that the package got lost though!  If you don't hear back from her or she's not in a position to send a replacement package we could always post for a swap angel!

Ok laides - Morning Star was very helpful and has already gotten back to me.

Basically someone needs to take over (I'd be happy to unless someone else really wants to - no problem just let us know!), and figure out who is where in the swap and what kind of feedback needs to be given. 

Because we already all have "In Porgress" Morning Star will have to go in and update the feedback for us - and she needs a list to do that - so if you haven't already posted where you're at with your packages sent & received please do and we'll try and get it all sorted out!

Will a note or something be added to quack's profile, maybe saying she sent but flaked on being the organizer. I just hate when stuff like this happens and I'd hate for it to happen to other people. DsgndbyRJ, Thank you so much for taking over! Its very much appreciated  ;D
