Details of swap:
**Please Read!**
This swap is 3 points, plus you will send your partner a sampling of at least 2 different kinds of tea.
3 points: large item or long crafting time
2 points: medium item or moderate crafting time
1 point: small item or short crafting time
You may use any combination of these point values.  You and your partner may decide you want to do more than 3 points, and that's fine.

*Participants should be willing to send internationally for this swap.*

***As I've organized several swaps, I find the main issue to be communication.  Please post in this thread at least once a week so we know that you're alive and crafting.  I reserve the right to refuse a swapper because of "lack of communication" comments in the swapper's feedback.***

If you are unable to send by the send-out date for any reason, please contact me and your partner ASAP.

Oooooh, I have been itching for a swap lately and since I am a tea fiend, this one seems right up my alley. Hmmm. Must check my funds to see if I can join!

I'll be working on my questionnaire later today.

I have a superquick question...

On international shipping.
If we're sending 2 different kinds of tea samplings, are any country's customs banning organic/ingestible material?

I just don't want to make awesome stuff for my partner only to have it held up in customs forever.  Wink

And now I've just sent in my questionnaire. YAY!

Actually, it's usually safer to send commercially packaged stuff. A sealed box of tea bags or commercially packed tea is more likely to get through than loose leafs in a plastic baggie... I'm not sure if it would be ok to send packaged tea bags removed from the original package, but I guess that depends on the place you send to.
