Details of swap:

Is your house in need of a Craftster touch?  Are you tired of your own decorating skills?  Need some new artwork to decorate your walls?  Then this swap is for you! 

Participants will be making decorative items for their partner’s home.  Items can include (but are not limited to): artwork, wall hangings, pillows/cushions, tableware, towels, embroidery, candles, frames, wind chimes, mobiles, organizers, bulletin boards, throws and anything else decorative you can come up with! 

For this swap we will do one large item and a few small extras, however, partners need to discuss between themselves and see what they are comfortable making.  If you both want to make more, no problem!  Partners MUST PM me if they are doing more/less than one large and a few extras so I can keep a record of it.

You are required to PM a valid tracking or Delivery Confirmation # to your partner and organizers when you send.

You MUST post photos of the items you received in the swap gallery.  Everybody loves seeing photos of all the goodies and your partner deserves recognition for the time and effort they spent crafting for you. 

You are required to post in the swap thread at least once a week.   It would be fun for everyone to post a picture of the room their partner is crafting for.   If you don’t post one in the thread please send your partner a picture of the room!  It will make it much easier on your partner and will help ensure that you receive something that is crafted to match your room’s existing décor.

If you have any questions/concerns at all about the swap please don't hesitate to contact your organizers.

If you want to participate, please send this information to the organizers:

Name of 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?
What room would you like your partner to help decorate? (Please include colors, furniture in the room and a description of the overall style of the room)
What would you LOVE to have made for the room of your choice? (Please list at least five ideas – examples/links are always helpful too!)
What items/colors/themes do you NOT like?
Please describe a little about yourself and your decorating style:
What kind of home décor items are you able to make for your partner?
Do you smoke or come from a smoking household?

Okay. How much information is too much? I seem to have written an essay! Roll Eyes

The more, the better!  I think it is so much easier to craft for someone when they give tons of details  Smiley

I am posting here so that I can remember about it! So often I miss out on good swaps Sad However, uni is about to start, and I am job-hunting like a mad-woman, so hopefully I can find time to sign up, but I'm gonna give it a week or so just in case.

Hooray for starting this swap though! It's gonna be rad!

I am going to suck it up and do this swap (and the kitchen one, because well, I am stressed and I need some crafting to make me a calm lady and not a crazy one), but it's going to take me a little while to get these questionaires filled out, there's so much to say.....
