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 that is a joy for the holiday season.

How are you spending the holidays?  Perhaps you are spending the holidays cozied up at The Burrow, wandering the halls of Hogwarts, or having a good old-fashioned Muggle gathering...but really what better way is there to celebrate than with a little Harry Potter Holiday crafting!  For this swap we will be exchanging Harry Potter holiday items like HP ornaments, mini-hooplas, jewelry for the Yule Ball, or a small HP present for your partner.

~*This swap is for 1 small item (1-2 hours crafting time) in the theme of HP Holiday.
***Please note that while many folks in the swap will celebrate Christmas, this swap is open to EVERYONE and swappers are welcome to ask for Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's other other holiday themes if they prefer.***

~*You can have up to 3 partners.  EXCEPTION: First-time swappers will be limited to 1 partner.  This is to help ease you into the swap process.

~*You can Invite Your Own Partners!  If you obtain an Invite Your Partner (IYP), PM your organizer, Mistress Jennie, after both sides agree.  Questionnaires will not be sent out until signups closing, but you are ore than welcome to start sharing your questionnaire and crafting for your IYP as soon as you are approved for the swap.  REMEMBER: You must be approved for the swap before announcing IYPs.

~* Since this is a holiday swap, if you have not sent by 3 days past sendouts, you will get temporary negative.  I don't mean to be harsh, but it is sad to not to receive your holiday parcel during holiday time.  This temporary negative will be reversed when your partner receives.  
~* If you do not have IYP and I am pairing, that will be done by random draw (with appropriate attention to allergies and shipping given).
~* You may agree with your partner to send extras, but remember that is not regulated through me and not part of my feedback.

~*BE SURE TO READ THIS ENTIRE POST.  There is a secret pass phrase within this post, to help ensure that you read all of the information.  You must include this pass phrase in your questionnaire in order to join the swap.

If you want to participate, fill out the below questionnaire and send to organizer.
(Remember to send your info to the organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)

Name of swap: Harry Potter Holiday 3
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country
(as it should appear for shipping please):
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (Please note that NO ONE would be expected to ship 3 packages international. If you are willing, I would only give you up to 1 international partner.)
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval (yes/no):

*Confirm that you understand if you do not send by 3 days past Sendout Deadline, then you will receive a temporary negative. (yes/no):

*Confirm that you understand that tracking numbers are required for packages within the US, and a photograph of the receipt from mailing is required for all international packages. (yes/no):

How many partners do you wish to have...1, 2, or 3?  (Note, this is for random draw pairing; if you are IYPing, then you just can't go over 3.)

What holiday, or holidays, do you celebrate within your home? (Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's, etc.)

Is there a holiday you would prefer your partner craft for?  (ie, perhaps you celebrate both Christmas and New Year's, but would prefer a Christmas themed item.)

Are you comfortable crafting for holidays you don't celebrate?  (For example, if you celebrate Christmas, are you comfortable crafting for someone who celebrates Yule.)

What are you favorite crafts to make?
What kind of crafts would you like to receive?
Do you want ornaments, other holiday items, small HP present, etc.?

Any special wishes? (no guarantees)
Anything you really DON'T want to receive? (i.e. animal products, religious, adult", HP items you already have)
What house do you belong to/support?

Who/What is your favorite HP...
Magical Creature?
Magical Shop?
Magical Item?

What is the secret pass phrase?

Do you or anyone in your home smoke?
Do you have pets?
Are you allergic to anything?



Anything else to tell your partner?
(A great place to list your blog, Facebook, pinterest, sizes, etc.)

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

Note about Personal Messages (PMs) to Organizer: Please label PMs to organizer with title of "HP Holiday" or "HPH".

Note about Communication: For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Please note that per Craftster rules, you MUST post in this thread at least once a week to let us know you are still around.  (You can 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.

---NO, you do not have to send extras.  Do not fret about if you are only sending 1 small item; that is all that is required for this swap.  Yes, some of us will send more, but don't underestimate the glory of 1 fabulous small HP craft.

---NO, your HPH3 item does NOT have to be an ornament; I will not give negative feedback for sending something other than an ornament.  Believe it or not, some peeps don't want ornaments.  Here communication is key!  Find out what your partner wants; first place to check, their questionnaire.  Wink

---The secret pass phrase is: Have a very Harry holiday!

---A small item should take 1-2 hours of crafting time.  YES, you may send a set of related extra-smalls that equal that crafting time if you wish.  (And yes, you can go over that time; I probably will.)
