Details of swap:

...Each person will have a secret partner in which they will stalk around craftster and other possible areas like blogs, wists, websites--wherever you can find info about your person. Revealing yourself to your partner is not allowed until after you have sent your items and only if they have guessed who you are. We will not reveal our partners to the other swappers until Christmas eve. In other words, PMing them to ask what they want is not allowed. You have to play detective.

You will send out crafted items totaling 5 points with at least one item a large or medium.  You will also include two stocking stuffers which can be crafted or purchased.
Of course you are free to send extras, but remember that you don't know who is sending to YOU, so there's no telling if you'll be getting extras or not.    Each participant will also be giving 5 themes in their questionnaire - your partner may craft to your themes or by post stalking you - it'll be a surprise!!

You are in a need of a wists and at least 75 posts on craftster. Make sure you have posts where people can find things about you and not posts that say I did this for etsy!   You will have to have at least 75 things on your wist.  A collection of shoes, dresses or furniture does not count.  Please put things on your wist so the person crafting for you will be able to determine your likes.  They can't contact you to ask questions.

Send your pm  and mark it Crafty Detective Approval when you wish to join the swap

When you send and receive, please pm  and mark the pm appropriately Crafty Detective Sent or Crafty Detective Received.  We will not mark you as sent or received if we do not hear from you!  Anyone that does not tell us and simply posts in the gallery will not be marked as sent/received.  That is the sort of thing noted in feedback, along with good communication and good checkins.

We will be doing Check-Ins once a week.  If you do not check in, we will have your partner hold off sending until we hear from you.  You must respond to her pm, not post it in the thread please.

We do request everyone that signs up to post in the thread at the minimum of once per week just to keep up.  It may be chatty, but it'll be FUN!!!!  It's a great way to get to know the other craftster members!!

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

This sounds like fun!  I have other things I need to get straightened out first but I would love to sign up for this!

ah! I would love to do this, I missed out on all the other Christmas swaps. I need to do some serious posting and wisting before I sign up though. Hopefully I'll get a chance to!
« Reply #9 on: October 28, 2009 12:11:22 AM »

Oooo I so wanna do this one!  I too have missed out on all the other Christmas swaps....  However, I need to find out when I'm moving before I commit to any more swaps lol  Hopefully I'll find out sometime this week and will know in time to sign up for this swap!
