Details of swap:

In this swap, participants will have two options.
#1.To sign up to swap with a single partner.   (Send and receive 1 bookmark.).
#2.To sign up to swap in a group of 3. (Send and receive 2 bookmarks.).

Love reading? Hate folding corners, losing your place? Always using the nearest slip of paper to hold your spot? Then this swap is for you! Open for all book lovers to finally get something to hold their positions in the books they're enjoying.

This swap is open to people in every country, and is a great way to try out swapping internationally, without a lot of cost.  To those of you who automatically say you do not wish to ship to a country outside your own, please consider it on this one!!! You will only be mailing an envelope and the costs would be much less than in a traditional swap.  Think about how much fun it will be to get international mail!  And think about how sad you would be as an international crafter, if no one ever wanted to swap with you!  Also remember that you would NOT receive ALL international swappers.

It is A LOT cheaper to ship international on a bookmark swap. You're only shipping envelopes, so even three will be under $5.

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is always the key.  Please keep in touch with your partners and organizer.  If you are accepted into the swap, I will PM you, and add you to the participant list.  Once partners have been assigned, you may craft your bookmarks and send as early as you wish.  All swaps on Craftster, requires the use of tracking, but this is not possible when sending letters or sending internationally.  Since you can't get tracking for these, feedback will be based on if your partner received or not. 

For US based crafters If your bookmark is not received after two weeks, you will need to re-craft and send another one to avoid negative feedback.

 For International and US/International crafters If your bookmark is not received after three weeks, you will need to re-craft and send another one to avoid negative feedback.

If you don't think you'll be able to make and send more bookmarks if your items are lost in the mail, please think about doing option #1.  As soon as you ship, YOU MUST PM YOUR organizer and your partner to tell them.  Please label your PM "SENT: Bookmark Swap - Rd 6".  When you receive, you MUST PM your partner and organizer again, please label this one "Received: Bookmark Swap - Rd 6".
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Extras may be sent between partners but BOTH MUST AGREE TO THIS!! No one wants to feel bad for getting a boatload of extras but not sending any

Thinking about it. I promised myself no more swaps until I was at least halfway done with the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap.

Message me for address or facebook info.
