(this tree is done by odd_artist in Round 2)


Swap name: Tree Swap Round 3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  lacey0828
Craftster member who is co-organizing this swap:
Sign-up date range:  Sunday April 24-Thursday May 12 at 12noon PST.
Date to send item by:  Thursday June 16

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Age requirement? 16+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

To be fair to other swappers, I reserve the right to deny entry to this swap for any of the following reasons:

- excessive late sending in past swaps
- poor communication in past swaps
- failure to meet size requirements in past swaps

Details of swap:

Elm, oak, willow, orange do you obsess over trees?

If you love trees or have always been drawn to them, this is the perfect swap for you.  Trees have been an intrinsic part of many cultures, from the giving of an olive branch in ancient Greece to the symbolism of the tree of life.  Anything goes in this swap as long as it is tree-inspired.

Take inspiration from their branches, leaves, colors, fond childhood memories of climbing them whatever.  We all know we love them, now lets craft in their name.
Here are links to the past discussion threads and amazing galleries.
Round 1:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271248              
Round 2:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292207.0              

Specifics and rules:
You must craft FIVE points worth of items for this swap.  According to the swap guidelines here on Craftster:

LARGE item (equivalent to 3 or more crafting hours or $30 or more) = 3 points
MEDIUM item (equivalent to 2 or more crafting hours or $10-$30) = 2 points
SMALL item (equivalent to 2 or less crafting hours or $10 or less) = 1 point

This means you have options!  You can craft 1 large and 1 medium, or 1 large and 2 smalls, or 1 medium and 3 smalls.  No more than 3 of your 5 points may be small items.  

If you and your partner agree to craft more than the required number of points, that is fine.  Just make sure it is agreed upon between the two of you!  It is always a fantastic idea to have good communication with your partner!

Likewise, you MUST have good communication in this swap.  5 weeks of crafting time is a lot of time for swappers to get "lost."  PLEASE remember to post in the thread or message your organizer roughly once a week.  If you do not show good communication, it will be noted in your feedback.  

This swap, like most swaps on Craftster, requires a Delivery Confirmation number. You must PM the delivery confirmation number to both your partner and your organizer once you ship. If you and your partner are sending internationally I'm requiring a copy of the reciept to be Pm'd to both your partner and your organizer as proof of shipping.

You are more than welcome to ship early if you've finished early!  

Partners will be assigned and posted the afternoon(PST) of Thursday, May 12.  I will post them in the second post of this thread and then PM everyone with their questionnaire and their partner's questionnaire.

Ohh, I was in Round 2 of the Tree swap and loved it. Seriously am thinking about signing up for this! Just have to see how the financial situation goes before I sign up for another swap.
