you can nominate to make 1 or up to 10 things. so if someone only has time to make a couple of items they can still join up, others may want to make more as they have the time.

so it would be nice if everyone will offer 3 different things you can make (pm me when you know what they will be, post pic of sample if you haveone)

example 1
mary is offering either of these 3 items bookmark set or magnet set or bracelet
jane chooses the bracelet in blue
mary makes a blue bracelet and sends to jane
example 2
jane is offering either a small journal, a set of atc cards or a necklace
mary chooses the atc cards, jane makes them to mary's theme and sends to mary.

does that make sense? Wink

i just thought it would give more options for choice so everyone likes what they get.
you can precraft  if you like, just try to have a range of colours to choose from.
or just make 1 sample of each, wait till you get partners, than use the 4weeks to make a custom small gift for each person.

welcome melmakespretty i will check your pm hope you like your first swap!

velvet rose if you want to to the shop the swap for xmas and offer the premade stuff you have pm me maybe i can help you if your organize or vice versa

hugs cyndiq

Thanks for offering to co-organize a STS cyndi, but I don't think I will have a swap slot free for it until next year.

I will mainly be offering pre-crafted items but I can make Rapunzel yarn scarves to order.

ooh your offerings sound very generous velvet rose
would the rapunzel scarfs be a bit big?
i am happy to let you offer them but hope you realized its a small gift and card we are all sending.
anyhow let me know by pm if you can join.

hugs cyndiq

The rapunzels only take about an hour to make so I think they are a "small" item in craftster terms.

What are other people thinking of making?
