Details of swap:
This is the Easy Peasy Swap - it's just that!  Easy Peasy!
You are required to make ONE MEDIUM SIZED CRAFT and that is it. No more, no less.  Just a medium.
What is a medium?  For this swap please plan to spend 2-4 hours of crafting time. Crafting time is actual time that you are spending physically crafting.  time to dry does not count.  shopping for the crafting does not count.  physically crafting is the time that counts  Wink

Other Info on Medium Size crafting options for this swap:
As in medium will fit in to one of these general categories......
By time: 2-4 hours total actual crafting time
By price: $15-$30
By physical size: one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

The size *medium* can refer to one of three things according to craftster - physical size, amount spent to create said item or the time that it takes to craft the item in question - not a combination of all three....  As long as you fall in to one of those categories you are creating a medium sized item.

Say one were to make a set of 4 things that go together - like 4 placemats for instance - say each one takes 45 minutes to make - if you were to only send one placemat then you would not be filling the swap requirement.  If you made 4 of them then you would - you would be in the targeted craft time range..
You make one purse that took you 3 1/2 hours to make you are in size medium range.
if you were to make a beaded necklace.  You used nice crystal beads that you scored on sale - total cost comes in at $12.  You are in size medium range.
if you were to make a knitted scarf of some sort - that would fall in to range - as opposed to a sweater or a knitted felted pin
I hope that clarifies a bit....

Please take in to consideration your partner's likes, dislikes, wists, etc. Make something that she/he will truly love even if it means stepping out of your crafty comfort zone.  There is a fairly detailed form that will get you started on ideas. Stalk your partner - see what she/he has commented on liking and keep in contact with your partner. Swapping is a social thing

Send out your item by 4/14. (of course getting customs/delivery confirmation numbers for US senders or keeping your receipts for our overseas friends.  Make sure you take pictures of things you send just in case.

The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of a thousand is a statistic.

I have a hard time waiting for smaller swaps to come up... I always get nervous about ones with larger requirements, esp since I like to spoil!  I would never get everything done in time  Tongue  Anyway, I sent in my info- this should be a good one!

Pro personal swaps and always open to a penpal!  PM me =)
