Details of swap:
For this swap you may either make something that is on your partners wists, or make something based on one of their wist items.  For Instance, if your partner has many items that include jellyfish, it is perfectly ok to send them a jellyfish themed item.  It does not have to be exactly like the one on their wists. (although that is perfectly fine too)

Before you sign up, make sure to go through and edit your wists, taking off things you have already received. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a Wists.com account to join this swap.  You must have a minimum of 70 things in your wists, 50 of them being  craftable items.   However, the more items you have the better your partner will be able to craft for you.  Please restrain from signing up before your wists are full, you have a good 2 weeks to fill and update!

*Important Question* "I use ___ instead of wists, but it works the exact same way. Can I submit this site instead?"  I don't see the harm, please PM me your site so I can approve it.

*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.

Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner at least 5 points worth of items. If you'd like a larger swap you may negotiate that with your partner. Extras and spoilage are perfectly fine.  

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


All participants must keep communication by posting in this thread.  It does not have to be every week, but it is encouraged.

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.  All other countries please provide the customs number to the organizer and your partner.  Be sure to hold onto your receipt!  Just in-case a postal problem arises.  

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!

Sooo tempted! I will have to consider this! I'm supposed to be on a swapping break...  Roll Eyes

In between the lines there's a lot of obscurity; I'm not inclined to resign to maturity...

I really want in on this one, just need to get home so I can do some wist maintance (darn website blockers at work) tonight before I send in my questionaire.  I've been on a swap binge lately and I just sent out my bookmark swap stuff today so it's time for something new!

I know the feeling. I always say "I'm going to take a swap-break" But I never do...I'm addicted!  Cheesy
