Details of swap:

Okay on to the good stuff!

This is a swap for everyone to make some stuff off of eachothers wists. I know personally I have a bunch of stuff on there that I really want but never get around to making. You can make things from or based on a wisted item on your partners wist. For example if some one has pets and has a bunch of pet toys wisted you could send some dog/cat toys, not necessarily exactly like the one on the wist.

Before you sign up make sure to go through and edit your wists, take off things you already have or don't want anymore. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a wists account to join this swap.  You must have a minimume of 80 wisted items, 50 of those being craftable items.

Please restrain from signing up right away if you do not have many items on your wist, you have two weeks to fill er up Smiley

Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner 5 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:  

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
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.

All participants must check in at least once a week by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner. If you are within Canada and have a canadien partner you MUST get a tracking number and pm it to the organizer and your partner.
Be aware of the comments section on wists, someone might add something and you go to make it, but didnt notice in their comments that they would only want that item in a different color.

Important note: Remember to take pictures of your items before you send. If you are unable to for any reason please PM your partner to let them know. It is not a requirment to post pictures but please be curtious and post pictures in a timely manner, your partner works hard on what they send.
And most importantly HAVE FUN !! Smiley

Just me but I would not feel comfortable joining a swap of this nature with no min of how many items are on a wist..Like you must have 100 items in wist with 75 craftable etc as without a solid min then it really makes me step back...I am a WISTS HOOKER ROTFL..I have I think over 300 items ROTFL..I love wist and think it is the second greatest thing ever!

 I just would like to see a min of 100 or so items as I have been in one of these before and I pulled it off but my partner has a smaller wist with a lot of high end like clothing, crochet and knitted items and I was not crafting those type of things but it was a totally stressful time...Just me and food for thought...


I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy

I'm interested.  I have to think it over.  Smiley

I agree with Babalina.  The round that I participated in had a requirement of at lest 75 craftable items.

Also, I am not sure how I feel about feedback being given only after I have posted pictures.  I understand how important it is to post pictures, but I recently had a mishap with this.  I sent to my partner and she received and posted pictures.  Her package to me was sent late and got lost in transit.  So I sat there for weeks without my feedback (still don't have it actually).  A mod told me this was not allowed and to put in a help ticket to get my feedback.  It could always be adjusted later if I did not post pictures. 

Just my thoughts.  I really do want to join, but will have to think really hard if I am okay with the rules set.

At your request I have added an amount requirement, 80 wists, 50 craftable items, I thought that was fair for a 5 point swap.

I completely understand about the picture issues that could arrise if everyone would feel more comfortable if that was not a must then I will remove it but do remember to take pictures of the items you send just encase something does happen in transit or you have a camera mishap and etc.

I just sent in my info. 
Except for the dotee swap, I haven't swapped for a while.  I've gotten a little lazy now.  I guess I'll have to eat my Wheaties to get my energy back up to par. 

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