3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Earring Binge Swap Round 6 (send outs July 2) on: June 12, 2007 04:58:49 PM
Swap name: Earring Binge Swap Round 6
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: devilninny
Sign-up date range: June 12 - 20
Date to send items by: July 2
Limited to a certain number of people?  no (provided i can find a co-organizer, if needed)
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes
All ages allowed? yes

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

Details of swap:
Much like the earring binge rounds in the past, you will be making a certain number of pairs and getting that many in return. 

Swap Conditions:
Please do not ship your earrings in a regular envelope that doesn't have a bit of padding, we wouldnt want the post office to be hard on them and they may break.  If they arrived damaged and your partner proves it with photos, you will be responsible for replacing them!!!

You MUST get Delivery Confirmation (DC) on all of your packages (If you are outside of the US, DCs are not required.)!! This is a requirement for this swap. If you can not or are not willing to get DCs, DO NOT SIGN UP! If you don't get them, I will give you positive feedback with a comment like "Not willing to get DCs" which could hurt your ability to sign up for other swaps. I know this all seems a bit harsh but getting Delivery Confirmation really makes the swapping experience a happier one for everybody!

You MUST PM me & your partner when you receive your earrings. Posting a picture would be nice too!
Since some people are recieving a lot, some forget to take pictures, so its a good idea to take some BEFORE you send!

If you want to participate, information to send to devilninny:

Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Your real name:
Email address:
Mailing address:
Favorite color(s):
Colors you dislike:
Are you allergic to any metals (please note this may limit your partners)?:
Are you willing to make special earrings for people with allergies (sterling silver, stainless steel, etc.)?
Do you need studs or clip-ons?
Are you willing to make studs or clip-ons?:
Are gold/copper/brass OK with you?:
Do you have a digital camera or a scanner?:
Maximum number of pairs of earrings you are willing to make:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country (this will also limit your partners if you say no)?:
If you don't mind my asking, how old are you?:
Do you prefer/like, beads, glass, polymer clay, feathers..etc?
Anything else you would like to add?:


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / earring binge round 4 on: May 31, 2007 02:54:30 PM

and the gallery:
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Fairy House Craftalong! on: April 29, 2007 11:38:00 AM
is anyone interested in making a fairy house this summer/spring? 

here is the site that inspired me:


mine will be similar to a doll house but with natural found materials!  i will be collecting stones and wood but also other natural objects that would fit in (sea glass, shells, dried nuts, etc.).  i will be making and swapping/trading for small handmade items that could be rugs, curtains, etc.  i want things to be natural, but also colorful and intricate.  id love to bounce ideas off someone else!
6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / April Affair (IYP6) signups March 1 - 16 on: March 01, 2007 10:24:19 AM
The April Affair is round 6 of the Invite your Partner swap!!!

April Affair Gallery!

In this swap, you can contact anyone 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 (devilninny) 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. Signups will last two weeks, but may close early if there are tons of people, so sign up early!

You may have two partners this round!  However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner.  You may have no more than two partners.

**IF you currently have too many swaps, but KNOW you will have positive feedback by the time the two weeks are over, you may still sign up and I will hold a spot for you and your partner. It will be your responsibility to pm me when you are eligible (under the 5 swap limit), or you will be dropped from the swap the last day of signups.**

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post 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. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like.  Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

due to a lot of very late sending in the January Jamboree, catpants and I have decided on the following rules:
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.
- you cannot sign up for this swap if you are still currently late in any IYP swaps.

even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback.  once you do send, you will have positive feedback again, BUT this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.


another idea is to at least send some of what you have made your partner by the send out date and if you want to send more later because she sent so much, shes so cool, you ran out of time, thats fine!  because you already sent!

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.

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 devilninny and each other with mailing information.
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide catpants with a DC number when you do.
5. Pm your partner and catpants when you receive as well!  Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless you PM catpants.
 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.  In this case, you still need to post in the gallery about what you received.
6.  Lack of PMs to both organizers and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7.  It also helps a TON if you include you and your partner's number on the post following this when you PM organizers regarding seding/received/feedback.  thanks!
8. Have fun!
