Ahhhh, the holiday of LOVE is upon us!   Do you LOVE the thought of making crafty goodness for someone -- handmade cards, hearts, birds, flowers. . . . ?  And who doesn't love receiving handmade crafty love???  Join us in this Sweet and Easy Valentine's Day Swap!

check out some previous galleries Smiley  note that I've lowered the size requirement this time,
since we don't have as much time to craft, but you can always spoil your partner  Smiley

VERY IMPORTANT. . . Please read before signing up:
Because this is a small swap with a short crafting period (a little less than 2 weeks) it is very important that you are positive you can commit to the cost and time for this swap before you join.  No one wants to be flaked on, especially on Valentines Day!  Also, since this is a small swap, make sure you can craft the loveliest, sweetest valentine package to the best of your abilities, in the amount of time given.  If you arent willing to do this, please do not sign up.

Now, for the nitty-gritty details:

** This swap has 3 parts:
a small (1 point) crafted item......since we have a short crafting time this round, make at least 1 small to medium-ish item for your Craftster Valentine, and spoiling is encouraged if you have the time!  
For more info on how to evaluate points, please visit https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229624.msg3712343#msg3712343

PLUS
** You will craft a handmade Valentine. . . it can be crafted from whatever medium you choose (paper, felt, fabric, clay, etc.)

PLUS
** You will also send some treats/sweets for your Valentine.

Additional requirements:

**DC#s are required for US swappers.
**PM both your partner AND organizer (thats me!) when you send AND when you receive.
**I highly recommend photographing your swap package before you send, just in case your partner cant post photos in the gallery.
**Post photos of your goodies in the gallery when you receive them from your partner.  I try to give speedy feedback once swap requirements are met, so the sooner you post, the sooner I give feedback!
**I would like for everyone to post in the thread at least once a week so I know you are alive, kicking, and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swaps more fun for everyone!
**First time swappers that meet Craftster swap requirements are welcome!

*****Please label all PM's to the organizer as VALENTINE SWAP.*****

If you want to participate, fill out this information to send to organizer, with VALENTINE SWAP QUESTIONNAIRE as the label:

I am going to join *if* I get my other two swaps done or almost done before sign ups end. I don't want to put too much on myself then start stressing. I should be able to get enough done on them though. This sounds fun!

Hope you can join!
It's a light-hearted, fun swap & low pressure this time (only one small plus a card to craft, throw in
some candy, and you're set!)
