Details of swap: Yay time for the fun stuff!

This swap is a 5 point swap that celebrates the love of owls Cheesy
At least one of your items must be Medium (2 Points)

Owls can be crafted in any medium and of any size, crochet, papercraft, jewellery, the night sky is the limit Cheesy If you wish to send extras please discuss this with your partner, no one wants to feel like their package fell flat!

If you have a wist or similar it might be time to start adding Owls for your partner to get an idea of the style of owls you like, cute, realistic etc.

Communication is essential for this swap, please post in this swap board at least once a week, even if it's only to let us know you are still crafting!

It is also a requirement of this swap that you post images in the gallery once you receive. If you know you will have difficulties taking photos please ask your partner to take some before they send so that everyone can see everyone else's wonderful owls Smiley

Don't forget, if you're sending within the US a DC# is required, international swappers please keep a copy of your receipt!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap: Owl Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country as it would appear on a parcel:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that you are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)
Do you suffer from any allergies?
Are there any allergens in your home? (e.g. animals, smoking etc)
What mediums do you craft in?
What mediums would you like to receive?
Is there anything or any style you absolutely wouldn't want to receive?
What is your favourite breed of owl?
Link to wist etc?
Anything else your partner should know?


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

A guide to swapping points: 3 points = Large. 2 points = Medium. 1 point = Small
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

You don't have to meet all the criteria for medium, e.g a necklace may have taken you an hour to make but could still be a medium as it cost you $10 to $30 or a plushie you made may be a large by hours but could have cost you less than $10.

This swap has a very long crafting period so please make sure everything you send is quality! It is also a reasonably big swap so if you don't feel you can meet the requirements / deadline please don't signup, let's make this a flake free swap Cheesy

I have been watching this so excitedly all day! I'm glad we are having signups already you guys are great!!! Well seeing as I'm not much of an owl myself I am off to bed (different time zone :/ ) So don't panic if you don't get added to the swap today I'll be adding first thing in the morning Smiley Goodnight from the land of the Tawny Frogmouth (check it out Owl lovers, especially if you can find an audio of it, so amazing! Oh and the Powerful Owl very impressive and one lives near me! Cheesy )

I'm totally interested in participating in this one but I've gotta wait patiently for the close of swaps and feedback on a few swaps where I've sent first...
