Details of swap:
War is not the answer! Give Peace a chance! If you ever feel the urge to paint a flower on your car (or drape garlands on your bike), set up house in a tree, or just sit back, relax and talk about what is the answer...then this swap is for you! Every generation has it's wars, it's economic issues, and it's politics...but what makes our generations special is that we have CRAFTSTER and therefor can engage in swaps that allow us to spread our peace loving crafts all over - so join, and make crafts NOT war.

Please do not feel restricted to using just the "Peace" symbol. This swap is all about what Peace means to you!

I understand that this is a very busy time with holidays and school and work, so for this swap we will be making 2 mediums and 2 smalls. You can decide with your partner if you would like to make more then that, but please make sure you do at least 6 points - it's all about fairness and equality baby! ALSO, you must include in your package one bought item. You can decide how much you'd like to spend on this, but please don't feel like you have to spend a fortune. Under $10 is FINE, unless you decide otherwise with your partner. This item must be purchased from any of the following places -

1. A company that donates part/all procedes to charity
2. A company that uses recycled materials
3. A farmers market

Item Guidelines
Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

Anything else you would like your partner to know -

A few rules to follow
This is my first time organizing a swap, so I would prefer things to go as calmy as possible. This is not only for my benefit, but for yours also. So please, if you are unable to abide by the following rules, do not join!

1. Whenever you PM me, you must include the name of the swap in the subject line
2. Please comment in the thread at least once a week, or PM me once a week.
3. You must PM me when you ship AND when you receive
4. When shipping, you must either get a DC# for items shipping in the US, or a receipt for items shipping out of the US. Please PM me either of those items - if it's a receipt you can scan/take a pic of it and PM me that.
5. You and your partner MUST COMMUNICATE! Please maintain a good flow of communication between your partner and yourself. If you do not feel like comfortable with the level of communication, please feel free to PM me and I'll try and sort it out.
6. Flaking is NOT ACCEPTABLE. It is rude and unneccesary, and in such a peaceful swap it's just innappropriate! If you don't think you'll be able to do this swap, then just don't sign up! You're more than welcome to check out the gallery, and of course if this round goes well I'll be happy to organize future rounds.

Thank you SO MUCH for taking time to read the rules. And thank you even more if you follow them  Grin


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I would just like to add, you know when you write a word a lot and it starts to look like it's mis-spelled even though it's not. Well thanks to organizing this swap, Peace now looks like I'm spelling it wrong....

jdb822, did you get my message?  I forgot to hit the "save in outbox" thing and now I'm scared it didn't go through!  It's no problem to re-send it.  Either way, I'm really excited to get involved!

This is freakin awesome!!! I dont know if I can do another swap....
who am i kidding, im sending in my questionnaire right now!!

Dear Craftster Friends,
Three years ago, I was much younger and dumber and I flaked on a few swaps. I am back and I promise to make it up to everyone I hurt. I had been flaked on a couple of times, and I know how cra**y it feels. I am really sorry.

I'm so disapointed I can't do this! But I just signed up for my first swap last week so I can't sign up for another one. Sad
