Details of swap:

Ahhhh, the holiday of LOVE is upon us!   Do you LOVE the thought of making crafty goodness for someone -- handmade cards, hearts, birds, flowers. . . . ?  And who doesn't love receiving handmade crafty love???  Join us in this Sweet and Easy Valentine's Day Swap!

check out the previous gallery Smiley
VERY IMPORTANT. . . Please read before signing up:
Because this is a small swap with a short crafting period (a little less than 3 weeks) it is very important that you are positive you can commit to the cost and time for this swap before you join.  No one wants to be flaked on, especially on Valentines Day!  Also, since this is a small swap, make sure you can craft the loveliest, sweetest valentine package to the best of your abilities, in the amount of time given.  If you arent willing to do this, please do not sign up.

Now, for the nitty-gritty details:

** This swap has 3 parts: a 2 point crafted item.....  That means one medium, or two small crafted items for your Craftster Valentine.  For more info on how to evaluate points, please visit https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.msg3712343#msg3712343
** You will craft a handmade Valentine. . . it can be crafted from whatever medium you choose (paper, felt, fabric, clay, etc.)
** You will also send some treats/sweets for your Valentine.

Additional requirements:

**DC#s are required for US swappers.
**PM both your partner AND organizer (thats me!) when you send AND when you receive.
**I highly recommend photographing your swap package before you send, just in case your partner cant post photos in the gallery.
**Post photos of your goodies in the gallery when you receive them from your partner.  I try to give speedy feedback once swap requirements are met, so the sooner you post, the sooner I give feedback!
**I would like for everyone to post in the thread at least once a week so I know you are alive, kicking, and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swaps more fun for everyone!
**First time swappers that meet Craftster swap requirements are welcome!

*****Please label all PM's to the organizer as VALENTINE SWAP.*****

Glad to see there is still interest --
was afraid everyone's swap card might be full ~

I wish to join this swap, however, I am one of the members who have not swapped on this site before. I am not a flake. I promise, and I will post weekly. May I join?

NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
