I would like to thank alana1223 for organizing the original Fill A Coffee Cup/Mug Swap. I "borrowed" most of her rules & questionnaire for this swap.

Swap name:  Fill a "Coffee" Mug Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  brandyk
Sign-up date range:  12/26/14 - 1/9/15
Date to send item by:  1/31/15

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO  

All ages allowed? Yes

Swap Organizer herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

This is a "Fill a Mug" Swap.  It can be items related to coffee, tea, cocoa, soup, anything that can be sipped, slurped, or gulped, out of a mug!  You can craft a mug, or not, it's up to you and your partner.  You can fill your mug with great drink related goodies!  Think of it like a Mug-Shaped Craftster version of a gift basket!  

Partners will send a mug filled with 1 medium & 1 small item (or 3 small items) and a mug rug. The mug rug & at least 1 other item must be crafted by you. Extras or minor adjustments to criteria may be discussed between partners.


This is a great way to try new things from other countries/locations. I encourage people to send locally made coffees/teas/items if they can.  There's plenty of stuff to send... maybe a hand made mug, a t-shirt or mug emblazoned with your favorite drink, craft supplies, recipe cards, maybe somehow incorporate it into jewelry... anything!

If you are sending within the U.S. a Delivery Confirmation (DC) is required! Everyone else, save your receipts for proof of sending!

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Fill a "Coffee" Mug Swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

To swap or not to swap...I am already in one, and will be organizing another soon. And then there are two others I want to join. Better think (fast) and make sure I don't overextend myself.

I don't need a mug myself, and maybe others feel the same way.. I am actually trying to clear out my extra and mismatched drink and dinnerware.   Could this also include something else mug related, like a mug shaped bag, or one changed into a pin cushion, or whatnot?

Great idea! My philosophy on swaps are as long as both partners/ all involved parties are happy, who should argue. If you prefer no mug be included, just let your partner know Smiley and work it out with her/him. If anyone else prefers to not swap mugs, please include a note on your questionnaire under the "Other comments/some info about yourself for your partner:" section.

I like this idea as well! I have several mugs I could pass along, but really don't want to get one for the same reason.

Personally I'd love a mug, but a mug related item-like a handbag or pincushion or something sounds fun too.  Smiley

I will be signing up later today I hope!  I would love a mug.... I have also bought a few along the way for extras in swaps  but if my partner is not in need of a new mug that's ok too.

I'm thinking of joining. I can't think of very many things that would fit in a coffee cup though, especially a medium item. Jewelry and stuff maybe but I don't make jewelry. Can anyone toss out some ideas to get my mind working in that direction? Smiley
