I reserve the right to refuse anyone.  If you have feedback that shows a history of very late sending, ill-communication, incomplete packages, lack of DC#'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap.

It's that time of year again, time to go back to school.  And if you received your letter, then it is time to pack you trunk and prepare to go back to Hogwarts.  So much to do, we better get started!

We will be crafting 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small.

And to stretch your crafty muscles and to keep with our theme, you'll be crafting...
~* one item based on your partner's favorite shop
~* one item based on your partner's favorite class
~* one item based on your partner's house preference.

Your partner's fave shop is Ollivanders, fave class is Potions, and house preference is Ravenclaw.
You could make....
a LARGE Stenciled Ravenclaw Hoodie, a MEDIUM Wooden Wand, and a SMALL Pair of Potions Earrings. 
a LARGE Cauldron, a MEDIUM Ravenclaw Hat, and a SMALL Wand Necklace.

If you want to participate, fill out the below questionnaire and send to organizer.

Remember to read the Swap Info Guide before participating in a swap.

Note about Personal Messages (PMs) to Organizer: Please label PMs to organizer with title of "Back to Hogwarts" or "Hogwarts".

Note about Communication: For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
  • SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send.  When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives.  PM organizer and partner when you send.
  • RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
  • FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) Detailed feedback will be given.  Examples: Sent Early or Lack of Communication: No PMs of Sending/Receiving.

ORGANIZER NOTE:  Many of you are PMing me with additions & changes to your questionnaire (which I completely understand....I'm still adding to my own questionnaire).  But because of the large number of expected swappers, I would be ever so grateful if you held onto these additions & changes and PMed them to your future partner.  THANK YOU! Kiss  ~*Please do PM if you decide to change houses so I can adjust your colors on the Student Roster.*~

I had so much fun in the Decked out for the Deathly Hallows 2 swap that I'm planning to join this one as well!  Just need to free up some swap space.  Fortunately, there's a bit of time Smiley
