This swap is for fans of Tim Burton. It will be a 5pt swap. You are required to craft at least one large OR one medium. There is a space on the questionnaire to say that you're interested in a bigger swap but it's no guarantee that you'll be matched with someone who also wants to craft more. Any extras (crafted or spoilage) must be agreed with your partner first! Here's a guide to the points system, but do ask if in doubt:

By Points
Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

I would LOVE to do this, but I'm wrapping up a swap now (one is my limit until this one's done). If I can swing it, I'll do it...

oOoOohhh...so tempting.  I will have to ponder this - every time I think of Tim Burton movies I like, I think of another great one.  and the galleries of past swaps are great inspiration!

Provided I get feedback in time I will join this.

My swap ended the 26th and I sent everything out and 7 of my 8 partners received. Just waiting on one. I'm sure she got hers first, she just hasn't gotten back to any of us about it, nor have we gotten her items. I hope she didn't flake.

Working on getting my overdue swaps out after life got in the way.

I love personal swaps! I always need fabric, findings/notions, and cute handmade things!
