you know you have something to say.......

Shop the Swap  18 sign-up thread  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266392.msg2994091#msg2994091

Shop the Swap 18 gallery  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266400.msg2994193#msg2994193

I thought I'd condense the swap explanation for anyone thinking of joining up (those 2 pages of rules can be a little intimidating....but it sounds much more complicated than it is)  Basically the Shop the Swap works like this:
-you need to be 18+ and have participated in 2 swaps with positive feedback
-this is a different swap in that you start with finished items.  Make a post in the shop thread with pictures of your 5 or more items and 4 supply items if you wish.  Thats your shop.  Each item must be marked with a point value from 1 to 3 points
-You get 3 points to start with when you first join, after that your points roll over from the end of the last round to the new one.  When you leave the swap you need to have 3 points to pay back this "point loan"
-Take a look around the shops and see what you would like to buy with your points.  You can "buy" from any shop that is open(check the top of the shop post). Send a claim (see the sign-up post for the format we use and who to send it to) and deduct the points from your total
-When someone claims from you, send your item out within a week (DC# required within the USA, save your postal receipt elsewhere)  You cannot spend the points (they are pending) until you have pm'd us that you have sent (and of course until you actually have sent!)  Once you've sent, add the points to your total
-Once your points are at 7 you have to close and go shopping (no point hoarding!)

This is it in a nutshell!!  Do read the signup post for particulars about the claim/send/recieve pms and other specific information.  If you have any questions please feel free to pm me Smiley

I have a few new items but I just had a horrible sewing accident...I cut the tip of my finger off with my rotary cutter!  It isn't horrible and it was just the very tip but I can"t get it to stop bleeding so I am off to the urgent care place but will post my shop when I get back  Smiley
