All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

This is a finished item swap.  Post a "shop" of at least 5 items for everyone else in the swap to choose from.  All items should be finished, and hand crafted.  They do not necessarily need to be crafted by you, but credit the creator wherever possible for items you did not make.

To Sign Up: PM the organizer, raynbow, with a list of at least 5 items you will offer in your shop.  Once you receive approval via PM, you may post your shop.

What is a shop?
A shop is a post in this thread,listing the items that you have available to be claimed.  You don't have to have an actual online shop to participate in this swap.  As long as you can post a list of items, with pictures if at all possible, you have a swap shop!  You can also manage your shop pictures on your own picture hosting and just post links in your shop post.  It's up to you to keep your shop as up to date as possible by removing items that have been claimed and posting any new items you want to add.  Items in your shop should all have a 'price' between 1 and 2 points.  Make sure it's clear how much each item costs.

- The majority of the posts in this thread should be shops.  That's what we all want to see, right?  So let's try and keep all the discussion over here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167570.0
- When you claim an item, mail raynbow, xladyluckx, and the person you claim from.  Claims will be first come, first served.  The first person to send a PM to all three of the proper people will get the item.
- Because it's possible for more than one person to claim an item at the same time, wait until you see the recipients name in the send out post before you send.  The send out post will be the ultimate authority on who is getting which item.
- Rather than keeping track of the number of claims, like the other ongoing swaps, we will be using a point system for this swap.  Here are the most important things you need to know about your points:
- Every time someone claims an item from your shop, you get the price of the item in points. (You cannot use your points until you have SENT the item that was claimed.)
- Every time you claim an item from someone else's shop you spend the amount of points in the price of the item.
- Once you have +7 points (either pending or spendable), your shop will be temporarily closed for business until you have less than 7 points.  Please edit your shop post to put 'CLOSED' in large bright letters to make it clear to everyone when your shop is closed.  There will also be a list near the top of the thread with all the closed shops.
- Once you have 0 points, you can't claim any items until you have at least 1 point.
- The organizers will keep a running point total at the top of the thread, but you should try and be aware of your own points too.  Feel free to keep track of your points in your shop post.
- When you receive an item, PM raynbow and xladyluckx and the person who sent it to you.
- Please use DC#s on your packages whenever possible.
- When someone claims an item on your list and is confirmed by an organizer, you are responsible for removing that item from your shop post.

(Please make the title of your PM the name of the swap)

How many points do I start with?
If this is your first round, you start with 3 points.  If you were part of round 1 you'll start with a number of points based on how many points you had at the end of last round.

Do I have to post pictures?
It's not required, but it's strongly encourage.  Good pictures will make people more likely to claim your items!

What size items should be in my shop?  What size goes with what price?
You can put any size items in your shop, and you can charge whatever price is fair.  If you really need a guideline, try small for 1 point, medium for 2 points, large for 3 points.  But feel free to judge by other criteria like the expense of the materials, how much you enjoy making the item, how popular the item seems to be, etc.

Why does my shop close when I have 7 points?
When you have 7 points, it means you've had several more claims against your shop than you have made yourself. We want to make sure that no one gets shortchanged, so once several items have been claimed from your list, your shop will be 'closed' until you catch up on claiming some things for yourself.  We also want to make sure no one is 'hoarding' points, so we want you to spend your points and get them back out in the economy.

Why don't I get my points until I have sent my item?
There are several reasons for this.  First of all, it's a good way for us to control how many claims you have going on at one time.  If you don't get your points until your items are sent, you can't have a bunch of packages waiting to be shipped and still be making claims.  It will also help protect our swap from anyone who might flake by not allowing them to make lots of claims if they aren't shipping their items.  And it'll encourage everyone to ship on time, or even faster, so that they can get their points!  We aren't waiting until items are received, because that will make it very difficult for international craftsters to participate in the swap.

Why do you keep changing the rules?
Since this is the first time we've run this swap, in this way, there are still lots of kinks in the system.  We're getting lots of feedback from you guys, and we want to make sure we listen to it.  Also, since we're hoping this will be an ongoing swap, we want to make sure that the rules we make don't make it harder for people to participate in later rounds.

What can I put in my shop post?  Can I put a wishlist?  Can I take requests?  Can I post embarassing pictures of my little brother?
The focus of your shop post, should be your shop! However, as long as you are keeping your shop the focus, and keeping it up to date, and keeping it stocked.... We don't care what you put in there! As long as you aren't breaking any rules of craftster, or any laws, go for it!

I want do do another swap, but the month isn't over, can you go ahead and give me my feedback?
In order to leave the swap early, you need to have at least as many points as you started with.  If you do, you can go ahead and 'close' your shop.  Then, once everything that had been previously claimed from you has been received, you can leave the swap and get your positive feedback.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should.  Is something wrong?
If it has been more than 24 hours since you made the claim.  Or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM.  Otherwise, give us about 24 hours to get caught up with claims.  If your claim is at least 24 hours old, and something seems wrong, feel free to send us a PM and ask.  If your claim is several days old and something seems wrong PLEASE send us a PM to make sure we received the claim!

I think I have 7 points but you only show me with 6, am I closed?  OR I think I have 6 points but you show me with 7, am I open?  OR Why are my points still pending, I sent those items?
In general, if you have recently changed your points, you're probably right and the point total is probably out of date.  When in doubt, it's fine to go with what you think your status is.  It doesn't hurt to include a little note in any PM's you send letting us know, just in case there is an issue.  (For example,  "XladyluckX just claimed my peanut butter sculpture, but your list shows my shop as closed.  I claimed a couple things recently so I think I should be open and this claim should be ok.")  Now, since you are the person who is the most up to date on your own point total, feel free to help us out a little bit.  Please close your shop when you know you're at 7 points.  Also, feel free to re-open your shop when you know you are at 6 points.  And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, feel free to spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

What do I need to say in my claim post?
The idea format for claim posts is this:
sender - item - receiver - number of points
If you are claiming multiple items at one time, list each one seperately.  If you just absolutely can't remember that, try and at least get those pieces of information in there.  Who you are claiming from.  What you are claiming.  And how many points the item costs. 

What do I need to say in my send post?
Something like this would be great:
sender sent to receiver this item for this many points
Again, the key items here are the sender, the receiver, the item, and the points.  Please make sure all of those things are in your message.

Can I leave the swap early?
You can leave the swap early, but we'll miss you.  In order to leave the swap early and get your positive feedback all your items need to have been received, and you need to have at least 3 points (you need to have shipped at least as many items as you claimed).

What is the 'sale mode' I hear everyone talking about?  Do I need to put my items on sale?
'Clearance sales' is what we call the end of the month when we're trying to wrap everything up and even up everyone's points.  You don't have to put anything on sale, but many people do.  But the real goal of the sale time is for everyone to try and get back to 3 points (the amount of points you started with).  So during clearance sales, the only stores that are open for shopping are stores where people have less than 3 points.  And the only people who can do any shopping are people who have more than 3 points.

All my items are 1 point!

1 Green acrylic and polyester blend panta.  Made with chunky yarn, so it's very wide.  It's not too tight on my big fat head, so it should fit big heads fine.  If you have a smaller head, you might need to trim it up a little bit.  Also, since it's so wide, it'll be really warm during the winter I think.

I also have a pinkishpeachish and white cotton panta, no picture yet.

One felted soap! The soap is glycerin base, so it's vegetarian.  It's got green tea in it, and an apple scent.  I think it smells sort of like a spicy apple chai!

One more felted soap.  Glycerin base.  Pearberry scented, mmmmm.

Another felted soap! Orangey vanilla scent.  Felted with a mix of wool and alpaca, much softer than some of my other felted soaps, try this one if you've been worried about them being scratchy!

(If you would like felted soaps of a specific scent, please let me know.  Color is also somewhat chooseable, limited by what I have in my scrap pile!)

I don't have any sheepy soaps pre-made.  But I can make them up easily, so go ahead and claim if you'd like them.  The current batch of sheepy soaps are being made with an awesome shea butter base.  Available scents include rose, plumeria, pearberry, vanilla, baby powder, clean and soapy, orange, mango, lavendar mint, jasmine chamomille, peach ..... i feel like i'm forgetting something.... those are most of them!

Loofah soaps!  The blue one is jasmine chamomille scented. The peach one is, you guessed it peach.  They are 1 point each, but with them you can also choose 2 guest sized soaps (not pictured.)  I have mango scented turtles and plumeria scented froggies!

Duck on the water soap.  Miniature rubber ducky floating on a yummy aqua olive oil soap, baby powder scented.  And so he won't get lonely on the trip, a light aqua, pearberry scented glycerin soap buddy!

I also have another one of these that is a duck lying down instead of sitting up in the soap, and the soap is slightly lighter and less translucent.

Polymer clay barettes, set of two.

Polymer clay covered altoid tin, lid comes completely off.

Polymer clay bead bracelet.  It is not highly sanded or polished, the beads have a very matte surface.  Stretchy cord.

Seed bead bracelet.  I should have taken a picture of this on my wrist.  It looks very scrunchy here but that's just because it's on a stretchy cord.  It flattens out nicely on your wrist.

Seed bead bracelet.  This one is not on a stretchy cord.  It should fit a small adult or large child.

Seed bead rings.  Your choice of ??several??.

Flower beads!  Handmade from polymer clay.  TEN beads for 1 point, mix and match from any of my beads.  (The people beads are all gone now, but most of the others are still available!)
Click the link to see the rest of my beads. http://www.hawkworld.net/gallery/crafts/swaps/beads/

And a couple 2 point items:

Blue Jean batt -Approximately 50g wool,cotswold curls, angelina for sparkle (hard to see in the picture)

Raspberry Ice batt - Approximately 50g handdyed wool, cotswold curls, and some sparkle
