Details of swap:

Hej alla swappare i Sverige!
Back in 2006 there was a swap for Swedish Craftsters, but that was long before I found Craftster... So I thought, how about a second round?
This will be a swap for people who live in Sweden only. As a Swedish swapper you do A LOT of international sending, so this will make a nice change! It's also a great opportunity to get to know each other better. Here's a link to the first Swedish swap and to the  Gallery of that swap.

Like the first round of the Sweden swap, this swap will be similar to the wishlist type swaps. We will craft a total of 5 points worth of items. A large item is 3 points, a medium is 2 points, and a small is 1 point. Examples of sizes:
    * Small: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete; $5-$15 in supplies; earrings, stickers, wallet, pouch, bookmarks
    * Medium: 2 hours or more to complete; $15-$30 in supply value; a necklace, a bracelet, a scarf
    * Large:3 hours or more crafting time to complete; $30 or more value of supplies; a shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a jewelry set (with 3-5 items), a  project tote

Like in round 1, participants will list 5-10 themes or wish list items. This could be either a type of item you would like to receive, or a theme or style that you like. Please keep these wishes/themes fairly general, keeping in mind that your partner might not do all the same crafts that you do.
For example, my list could be:
1. A cosmetic bag
2. The color blue
3. Mermaids
4. Owls
5. A scarf
And then my partner could choose whether to use one of the themes for all their items (for example making a mermaid themed package) or choose different ones  (for example making a scarf, a cosmetic bag and a mermaid magnet) or even to combine them (one of the items could be a blue cosmetic bag with an owl on it, for example). Make sure you do your best to create a nice package for your partner!

Communication is important! Please stay in contact with your partner and post in the swap thread regularly to let us know what is going on. You will have one month to craft for your partner. Since DC#s are not available in Sweden, you will be required to save a mailing receipt copy and take a photo of your package (stamped and addressed) to provide proof of mailing.

Another note: Craftster moderators ask that we use English at all times when posting to the boards, but if there is something you don't understand or you need to ask me something in Swedish, please don't hesitate to drop me a PM!

If you want to participate, please copy this information and send to the organizer:

Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Confirm that you are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Do you understand that you are required to save a mailing receipt copy AND take a photo of your package before you send: (yes/no)
Do you promise to post pictures/scans of the package you receive in the gallery: (YES/NO)

List 5-10 wish list items or themes:

Do you have any allergies (smoke, pets etc)?
Any allergens in your home (smokers, pets etc)?
What crafts do you do?
What type of things do you like to receive:
Anything you would not like to receive (religious preferences, animal products etc)?

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

And remember to have fun!

I thought this was a Swedish themed swap! That's too bad! Cry My Svensk Flicka (and my mother) would love a few Swedish themed crafts. I wish you all the best and hope you all have a great time!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

Yay! I'll join immidiately, so that I don't accidentally sign up for too many other swaps and miss out on this super opportunity!  Smiley

Excellent gavagai, welcome! Lady Llanalla, I'm sorry but this swap will be open only to Swedish residents... A Sweden themed swap might be fun though, someone should start one! Wink

I will be going on holiday tomorrow, so I might not be able to update  your status to "IN PROGRESS" straight away, but I will do it as soon as I can! First time swappers, remember that you can only sign up for one swap at a time until you have finished your first swap!

We're up to 3 swappers already, how exciting! Smiley Gavagai, i haven't got your sign-up form yet, did it go missing?  Shocked

Anyone who sends in their form before 5PM tomorrow will be updated before I leave, after that It'll depend on when I can get to a computer next time... We're going on holiday to Riga for a couple of days! Smiley

Working on filling out the form... I think I'll sign up later on in the sign up period to make sure my other swaps are progressing as they should before I sign up for one more.
