Date to send by: September 1

Age requirement: Over 13

Swap Organizer herself meets these conditions:
-has fully read Swap Info Guide: YES
-has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
-is not organizing more than 3 swaps right now: YES
-will recruit a co-organizer if the swap has more than 25 participants: YES (have one)

-has posted at least 15 times: YES
-has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
-is not currently signed up for more than 5 swaps: YES
-participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES
-does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of the Swap:
This swap will involve creating items that are imitations of or inspired by the items on your partner's Wists (original swap thread). You are to use their Wists to get a feel for what they like and what their tastes are, and to craft for them based on that. It is important that your Wists have a variety of items. The minimum is 100 items, with at least 75 craftable items. This will make partnering more simple and your partner will have an easier time crafting for you. You also need to make sure that your Wists are up to date and delete things that you don't want anymore or now have. When crafting for your partner also make sure to check the comments section of the items, they may have included important specifications. For example, maybe your partner wants a knit hat, but only if it's in blue. Or maybe they like a poly clay pendant, but plan on making it on their own (in this case it would probably be a good idea for you to set these items to private on your Wists).

This is going to be a 6 point swap.
Here's some clarification on how the points work:
Small Item = 1 Point
Medium Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
Definition of sizes:
Small: By time - 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$ - $10 or less. By size - earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, etc.
Medium: By time - 2 to 3 hours of crafting. By $$$ - $10 to $30. By size - single necklace or bracelet, scarf, etc.
Large: By time - 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$ - $30 or more. By size - a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, jewelry set with 4 or 5 items, a purse, etc.

-All participants MUST keep in touch, either by pm-ing both organizers or posting in this thread at least once a week.
-If both you and your partner are within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizers and your partner. If you cannot get a DC, make sure to get a receipt from the post office and hold onto it for proof of sending if needed.
-If you want to participate, sent the questionnaire to the organizer via PM and not in this thread!
-This swap is limited to 24 participants.

I signed up.  I'm glad we'll have enough time to craft for this.  Gives us time to shop for supplies if need be. 

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

I'm glad you guys like the long crafting time. That's the amount of time we had for the original, and it seemed like a lot at first but the time really does fly.

Just want to make sure that you guys have the required amount of items on your Wist BEFORE you send in your questionnaires. I can't approve you for the swap if your Wist is not yet meeting the requirements. If you guys need help beefing up those Wists, creeping other people's Wists can help a lot. And personally, I'm always really flattered when someone links to one of my items  Cheesy. You get to chunkify your Wist, plus spread some love!

Yah! I'm so excited so many people are signing up already!  I think this is going to be fun. I've been busy updating my wist & making sure I have comments on everything - exhausting!  Smiley
