Original Topic:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249525.0

July usually kicks off the Christmas crafting season.  So...let's get a head start on our Handmade Holidays with a Christmas in July Stash Busting Swap!  It's always nice to get help filling our gift crafting lists.   As crafters, most of us enjoy giving handmade gifts.  We also usually have a few more craft supplies around the house than we'd like to admit. Wink
Items should be crafted from supplies that you currently have in your possession.  The only exception being basic consumables like glue, thread etc...  If you are a spoiler, please spoil with handmade extras.  No store-bought extras, please, as this is a stash busting swap.  You can craft items to help your partner stuff stockings, fill their gift list or, get a head start making their holiday decor etc...

If you do not celebrate Christmas, not to worry, all comers are welcome!  The main spirit of this swap is to do some good ol' fashioned Stash Busting! Smiley  I'll do my best to partner swappers according to their interests.

Swappers will be crafting items worth a total of 6 POINTS


Partners may swap more if they are both in agreement and able to send on or before the deadline of July 31

Please read the Swap Info Guide for info on the swap process and Swap Etiquette for a helpful guide on project size requirements.  If you have any questions about the swap please do not hesitate to PM serendipity_sarah.

Clear, consistent communication is absolutely essential for a great swap experience. 

Please make contact with your swap partner as soon as possible after partners have been assigned. 
You will be expected to pm your partner and check-in with a reply on this thread at least once per week until you have sent.
I can't emphasize enough how important communication is to the swap process. 
Please post a reply in this thread once you have PM'd serendipity_sarah with your completed questionnaire.

All participants within the U.S. will need to supply your organizer and your partner with a valid Delivery Confirmation Number upon mailing.  Please visit www.usps.com for more information.
Participants outside the U.S. will need to supply a Customs number to your organizer and your partner. 
Please retain your postage receipt as proof of sending.

You must PM your organizer and your partner when you have sent and received.
