22  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / How about another rd of Spell My Name? on: December 14, 2013 08:41:03 AM
I'm getting the itch for a new round, maybe signups between Christmas and New Year's
with sendouts near the end of Jan?

Anyone in?  It's always a blast to see how creative you can be with the letters
of your partner's name  Smiley

Here's a link to previous round:

24  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Yarnies Scavenger Hunt Round 7 (s/up Sept 8-18; s/out Oct 16) on: September 08, 2013 06:26:23 PM

Swap name: Yarnies Scavenger Hunt Round 7
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: kayrun
Craftster member who is co-organizing this swap: n/a
Sign-up date range: Sept. 8-16, 2013
Date to send item by: Oct. 16, 2013

Limited to a certain number of people? Yes, 22.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
Additional Age requirement?

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: correct
- 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: oh, 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: correct
- Does not have any negative feedback: correct
- 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


Details of swap:
This swap will be a scavenger hunt with categories each participant must interpret and fulfill with items relating to yarn and yarn crafts, then send to her or his partner.


Categories :

1. Something local
2. Something green
3. Something recycled
4. Something hard
5. Something funny
6. Something related to the letter 'M'
7. Something dotted
8. Sender's choice

I'm going to leave the category definitions up to you and your own interpretations. You may discuss them, but, ultimately, your intuition should be your guide.

Rules:
The number of items sent and received should be no more and no less than the number of categories in the scavenger hunt. Exceptions are if the item representing a category is a pair or set of items, such as a pair of mittens or a set of stitch markers.

One item per category - no single item can do double-duty and count for two categories. However, if a particular item does work for two categories and having two of them would be pleasing to the recipient, then two may be sent. The exception to that would be if it's a pair of something where having only one of the pair would be useless. If it's a pair, the pair can only count for one category. For example, a pair of blue mittens cannot count for something blue and something that starts with the letter M. However, sending two blue mugs, one for the blue category and one for the letter M category, would be allowable.

The gift for at least one category must be a skein of yarn (quality, please, unless your partner says they love fun fur!).

Items can be bought or handmade. At least two categories should be handmade.

At least five of the eight categories must have items relating to yarn and yarn crafts. Other goodies are welcome, but the bulk of your package should be yarnie goodness.

Please PM your partner and the organizer when you send out your package and when you receive it.

You must post in the thread in order to be approved and post at least once a week until you have sent your package to your partner.

The size of your items will be up to you and your partner.  Thanks!!

27  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Spell My Name (Initials only this time?) on: June 15, 2013 04:09:52 PM
Hi, gang!
For some reason, I'm feeling ready for another round of
Spell My Name....
Anyone up for some summer fun?

A buddy shared with me that she would be more apt to join up
if it was only 3 initials to craft for, so I wondered if others would be
interested in those parameters this time?

Here are a couple of previous rounds:
