Swap name: Unconditional Swap July
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: lechaton, Hookin Flamingo, and Krysta (Organizers will change every month)
Sign-up date range: July 1st - July 27th
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? Yes, but make sure your parents are okay with it and that you'll have a ride to the post office!
Organizer is aware of users with negative feedback and will not allow those members to participate: Yes

For those of you who joined this swap in June:
Feel free to post any 3 wishes you please (AFTER you've been APPROVED), they do not have to be the same as last month!

Please remember to send in the form even if you had a list in June. I am a new organizer, and I don't have your information!

You must PM the organizer when you post your list, so she knows that you have done so and can check it. PLEASE DO NOT post anything other than your wishlist (new OR old) and a little bit of info about you, any questions or comments can go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50691.0


-- Each person interested will post a list of maximum THREE items they want. (Try and list items that you cannot make, but would like to have). These items must be reasonable; it must not be ones that would cost someone a truckload of money to make for you!

-- Once you have given your three items good thought, reply to this thread and post your 3 wishes, along with any other information that will be helpful for those looking to craft for you. (Color preferences, style, size, design, etc)

-- Those coming along this thread will scroll and read all sign ups, and decide if they want to craft for someone. Those who sign up as well are free to craft for another.

-- The catch to this is you cannot expect anything in return for your efforts except a thank you. That is why it's called an unconditional swap. You can hope that someone else or maybe that same person would want to make you something as well and then craft for you. And knowing the great craftsters here, I'm sure everyone will receive something.

-- Each month the organizer will change. All information of the swap will be transferred to the next organizer. An announcement will be posted about this change. This month (July 1st - July 27th) is lechaton. From the first of every other month, a new organizer will be in charge.

-- Each person can be picked 2 TIMES! This means that only 2 people can send to someone. Within those 2 people, the person may receive all 3 items. I.e. "A" and "B" are sending to "X". A chooses to send 1 item off the list, while B chooses to send the other 2 items. Therefore fulfilling all 3 wishes of "X".
Now, it is not necessary to fulfill all three 3 wishes..."A" could send just one item and "B" could choose to send one item thereby fulfilling two wishes on "X's" wish list.

-- When you post your wish list be sure to mention the country you are in on that post. For example:

I am in India.
Wish 1
Wish 2
Wish 3

-- Once you have been picked twice your name will be crossed out in red on the list. You can be on the list again the next month, when the organizer changes.

-- The crossed out names can be back on the list once the organizer changes (every month).

-- As soon as anyone picks a partner, you have to ship them their stuff within 2 weeks.

-- If more than one person picks a person and wants to make them the same item, then the person who Pmed the organizer first will get preference to make that item.

I would appreciate if you could PM me with the DC number or scan the receipt. And - Please DO NOT write your original post in any other color but black. This will make it easier to sort through.

-- All in all this is sort of a good karma swap. Give unconditionally is your motto my fellow craftsters.

-- All regular swap rules do apply for this. All of you who sign up will be screened to see if you are eligible to join the swap, including Newbies.

-- Positive and Negative feedback will be given for this swap. Your feedback will reflect the number of people you send to that month.

-- When you PM me your wish choices, please include their craftster name, wish # and wish.

I will continue the trend of posting who has chosen who.

"There's been a lot of talk about flaking and since this swap has a higher potential for flaking than others, I've taken the suggestion to post who is taking who's wishes in a format similar to the Ongoing Wish Swaps. If you really want to keep it a secret, thats fine, just let me know when you pm with your choice(s). I am just giving this a try to see how it goes, the next organizer may choose not to do it this way. My intention is to cut down on the amount of flaking that is happening with this swap."


Please DO NOT post your lists until AFTER I've told you you're in.

When you have been picked PLEASE crossout and change the colour of your post accordingly
(green for one wish, red for two-three wishes fulfilled). If you need help with that, feel free to PM me.

Do you understand the way this swap works?

Please remember to wait for me to okay you before you post your list
Note from lechaton - Please don't let this swap die!  Embarrassed this is my very first time organizing so let's make it a good one! after July 27th I won't have internet, so any empty feedback after that point will be filled in by Hookin Flamingo - thanks for the help! Smiley

Gallery Thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107819.0

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: from now on, send all choosing/sending/etc. info to Hookin Flamingo, she will also fill in feedback. I will still be available until Thursday if there are any questions about anything sent in before this week, after that I won't have internet until who knows when. Thanks for making this a great swap everyone!! Smiley

Hi! I'm Erin and I live in Florida USA happy face!

My wishes:
1. cloth menstrual pads like the ones shown here: http://www.geocities.com/thixle/diypads_tutorial.html (you can also do a search on craftser and find some tutes :] ). i'm not choosy about patterns, but i would really like them to be made out of semi-waterproof material cuz (excuse me for being gross a second) aunt-flo is a hefty lady if you get my drift.

2. an artist's journal, preferrably with lots of watercolor and heavier papers, i do a lot of collage work and would like to have something to visually document my move to and work in New Orleans. Smiley - thank you thank you fadeawaydream!

3. a suprise!!

Lesse what else...I'm 20 years old, I love Lost, Project Runway,  knitting, and my local bands. In August, I'm leaving Florida to work in Louisiana with Americorps City Year (www.americorps.org). I'm lacto-vegetarian, pierced, tattooed and have a livejournal. Check it out for more info than you ever wanted to know about me Smiley http://airn.livejournal.com

BIG thank you to whoever thinks about crafting for me, I really love this swap. Smiley

My name is Ginny, and I am in Chicago, Illinois.

1. Candy or snack food from your country! I know it's not crafty, but I love getting a feel for this kind of thing.

2. Armwarmers, preferably knit or crochet. I'm trying to get up a collection! Everything about these is gorgeous - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75506.0, but I also want stuff like https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5798.0 and longer versions of http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=82156 Thank you piratekittie!

3. 10. A sock monkey! I have none! T__T  Any kind would be great, but I LOVE this one  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16739350.msg940771#msg940771

More about me- I'm heading into my freshman year of college at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, majoring in food science. I love the color teal and any bright colors (right now I'm into bright but dark pink and bright bright blue). Lots more info about me is here! http://cheeesecrafts.livejournal.com/563.html

Hi, I'm in Orange County, CA, these are my wishes-

#1- A DIY spinning kit, I'm dying to learn how to make my own yarn for crocheting!

#2- Crochet or Waldorf style doll, either a knight, dragon, or king. I made a castle bumper for my son's crib, with little pockets dolls to play with, but never had the chance to make any. Here are pictures of the castle bumper missing characters-


#3- Surprise me with something from my wist list! - http://www.wists.com/beautifulloser Thank you zenochka!

I am a 27 year old mother, with two wonderful sons. I love lots of color, my favorites right now are avocado green, bright turquoise, and hot pink. I like mermaids, swallows, day of the dead, Harry Potter, Snow White, fantasy, skulls, shrines, butterflies, and color. I've been taking time off work (I teach art classes for children) to be a full time mom, and have been having so much fun crafting for swaps and receiving surprises in the mail!

Cool, I've been waiting for this!

So what are you, a mod or a rocker?
Six of one, half a dozen of the other, really.

Want to do a personal swap?
« Reply #8 on: July 11, 2006 01:55:27 PM »

Yay! I'm in!

My name is Kristin, and I am from Missouri.

Here's my list:

1. I am having a baby boy at the end of September. It starts getting chilly here about then, so I will need booties to keep his little feet warm. I cannot knit. I SOOOO cannot knit, so if I tried to make him a pair, they would be different sizes, with skipped stiches everywhere.  Any color but pink is fine. Knit or crocheted would be great. I would really, really appreciate these! Thank you ultraviolet!!

2. I need a new coinpurse. The sky's the limit here...any color...surprise me!  Any material but wool, since I am allergic to it. I love wool, but it does not like me. Sad

3. I'd really like a pincushion, since I am starting to sew again. Any kind you like to make. I just think it would be cool to have a Craftster creation to inspire me while I am sewing. Wink Thanks jenefor!!!!!
