Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you think about Halloween throughout the year, not just in October?  Do you love opening presents?  If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a Mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, we count down the days to Halloween starting with 10/18. You will open day 13 on October the 18th, day 12 on October the 19th and so on until 10/30.  (This is a flexible time schedule however.  Please communicate with your partner.  If you or they need to adhere to a different schedule, that is, of course, okay as long as youve both worked it out beforehand.)
-You must post in this thread before signing up
-A minimum of 12 small items and one medium, one for each day.
-At least 6 crafted items must be sent, equal to 5 small (Under $10 or under two hours to craft) and 1 medium (Medium = 2 or more hours to craft or $10-$30 dollars)
-Spoiling is okay but do not expect the same in return. If you would like to spoil, please discuss it with your partner!
-You must post in the thread at least once a week (or communicate reason you cannot)
-You must PM both your partner and organizer when you send and receive
-You must post photos in the gallery and if you cant please ask your partner to do so.  We all want to oooh and aaah over the goodies!

Some things to think about:

* I STRONGLY recommend that you have a Pinterest board for this swap, as it helps out your partner greatly. Please keep this updated and have at least 20 hallowe'en items on it. If you do not have a Pinterest board, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (Etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

*If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods you should make this the package that is opened on day 1!

*I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

If you want to participate, fill in information and send to organizer TAOJ

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Any interest in Christmas in July? on: June 14, 2019 03:37:08 PM
Is there any interest in doing a Christmas in July swap? Instead of the 12 days of Christmas maybe 5 or 6 days? Something like 3 small, 2 mediums and a lrge?
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Swapping Skills on: April 17, 2018 07:45:37 AM
Would there be any interest in a swap where we are trading skills? For example I can knit, do cross stitch and embroidery, but I want something made of polymer clay or carved or sewn, etc.

So I would list my skills and what I would like made and be matched up that way.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 6 days 6 holidays on: June 07, 2017 10:29:50 AM
Would anyone be up for a swap where you could pick 6 holidays, hallowe'en, birthday, easter, etc. that you enjoy and your partner would make you an item for each holiday? Opening up a present each of 6 days.

Your items could be, but wouldn't all have to be, holiday themed, just something that you would normally receive during that holiday. So if your partner picked Easter it wouldn't need to be a bunny or an egg, but maybe some chocolate. Of course some items would be holiday themed, but it would give some flexibility.

Any interest?
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Mini Art quilt on: January 08, 2016 07:49:52 AM
Would anyone be interested in swapping mini art quilts? I am thinking maybe 4x6 for the size? any thoughts?
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Holiday Coat Ornament on: October 09, 2015 10:49:51 AM
I had to make an ornament for a swap so I took a couple of coat patterns I found online and combined them and added a hood. I sewed it by hand and added some yarn as the "fur" with snowflakes embroidered on the pockets.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Decorate my space on: May 20, 2015 05:06:32 PM
Would anyone be interested in a decorate my space swap? I'm thinking any type of household item. Lamps, cushion covers, wall hangings, mirrors, casserole carrier, throws, etc.

I would try to match up people with similar tastes and perhaps different crafting skills.

If you're interested I'm open to any suggestions you may have on it.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Second chance swap: IT'S ON!! on: June 18, 2014 08:12:51 AM
Would anyone be interested in participating or hosting a swap such as this one:

Basically, someone who has a negative can craft items for a friend of craftster to reverse that negative.

Moderator Comment The Second Chance swap is live now through February 6! If you need to redeem negative feedback, here's your chance. Click here for the swap. Please read all the rules carefully. Good luck!
10  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / 1 angel needed for 12 days of Christmas MINI swap - FOUND on: January 14, 2009 09:58:28 AM
I am looking for someone who would be interested in sending a great package to baa-me-chick in Scotland. Her partner was unable to complete the swap, but was to send 1 large and 2 smalls so she needs a replacement package for the rest of the days. Here is a link to the original thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271135.0 
Please send me a PM if you are interested  Smiley
