Post in the thread at least once a week for duration of swap OR until BOTH you and your partner have sent and received (otherwise, poor communication will be noted in your feedback). I will be checking.

PM me and your partner ASAP if you have to send late.
* Buy a delivery confirmation or tracking # for your package and PM it to me and your partner when you PM to notify us that you sent.
Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Also, please do not sent alcohol in this swap.  A margarita glass is OK a margarita is not, sorry!  It says so in the craftster rules.

ALSO, using Jimmy's words of wisdom for inspiration or theme or quoting him OK, swaping copied/burned music in NOT ok.  Crafter rules, again.

Glad to have you & lets have a PHun time!!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Maybe I am just clueless today...but WHAT am I supposed to be crafting if I were to join this swap?  I know a lot of Jimmy Buffett songs, and can download and listen to them again if I need to!  LOL!  But, is there more of a story behind this swap theme that I am missing?  I am looking for a second swap to join and complete so I can be an organizer...so more info on this one would be great in helping me decide.  Thanks Smiley

***passing the Margaritas and Jello-Shots!***

I have made a hat that has since long time been traded away for beads or other useless items or drinks or something. 
maybe a string of beads, table cloth for a picnic, back yard things, I am personally thinking wearable! 

I tailgate in WI!!!  so the concert is a nice way to end the PHantabulous day!  If you go WI is the place! 

I think a really great resource for this swap is www.margaritaville.com and look up the parrotheads of the week and pics of parrotheads...we are crazy bunch of crafty drunks!

***taking my jello shot*** passing another round***

Yay! Just sent in my info. I'm a geezer with a kid,so I don't get out to concerts much anymore,but I love Jimmy Buffet! I'm a fan from way back.
Fun stuff inspired by the music is what I'm thinking of. I had a vision of the perfect swap item, and I can't wait to get started on it!
And since I am a bookstore geek,I've read the books. Nerds love jimmy,too,ya know. Grin
