Details of swap:
Happy Birthday to us! This is a November & December birthday swap. Post a list and get a birthday pressie! You can ask for supplies or handmade items. You will also need to let people know where you are located: city, state & country. You need not post your age, but please let us know your birthdate.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire, I will tell you that you can post a birthday list.

This is not like the other claim swaps- such as OWS where you must pick again to repost your list. In this swap, you post your list once and it will stay there for craftster to scroll through at will. I will be updating the sending/receiving list rather frequently, so if you are unsure who to craft for, that might give you a better idea 

- To be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- There must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- Once you have picked someone to craft for, you can be picked as many times as there are items on your list. (To make sure things are fair though, the organizers retain the right to restrict people's lists if they are receiving a significant amount more than they are giving).
- You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things. If you have picked 3 people to craft for, you must send at least one of those items successfully before picking again.
- If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
- Please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number/receipt/proof when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- Regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive.
- You can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!

If you were not born in NOvember or December, you may still craft for somebody if youd like to, however they are not bound to craft for you in return. That being said...

If you receive a gift from anyone in this swap, it is polite to mail a thank you note/card/letter. Also post pictures of your received items in the gallery- or let your partner know before hand if you don't have a camera/scanner, so that their work can be appreciated.

When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list so that other swappers know what is available.

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

Name of swap: November/December Birthday Swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE. Please put November/December Bday Swap in the subject lines of all of your PM's regarding this swap! Please send all PM's to ollieorange & the lovely co-organizer addicted2knitting.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I am going to sign up once more people join to pick from. Also is everyone guaranteed to be picked or do we roll over into the next month. and how many times can you be picked before before your list get shut down and you have to send. It used to be 2 but it does not say anywhere in the swap rules

I think I signed up! (Huh)  I sent in my info but I'm just a wee bit confused. Heh.
« Reply #8 on: November 27, 2007 05:59:12 PM »

I know these are really confusing! You can send your info in before there is something you want to make listed. It's basically to make it easier for me to keep track of things- I think?!
All you need to do to get going in the swap is send me the short questionaire in the description. This might help a little.
we'll start with 3 people: A,B & C
1. A posts a list with at least 5 items on it
2. B chooses to make item #2 on A's list
3. B pm's me & A and lets me know she's making item #2
4. I PM B with A's address & let B know she can post her list of at least five items.
5. B posts her list and it begins again when C makes a claim on B.
Does that help at all?
EVERYONE will get something. I will make sure of that.
Having said all of that- Thatdarnpunk has choosen to make my bunny, she can now post her list and anyone can choose off of it.

I just want to make it clear that the lists do NOT roll over into the next month.  At the end of December this list should shut down so that the January birthday swap can start.  After December 31st there should just be sending going on.  There are no angels, you get picked or not, but that's that.  Please keep that in mind.
