Swap Decree: All swappers MUST post at least once in the swap signup thread.  ABOUT BEING A PARTICIPANT IN A SWAP: Joining a swap: "In addition, you must post in the signup thread. The thread is a major means of communication for the organizer and the swap participants."  This is not a rule I created, it is a Craftster rule, and one that is enforced.  Thank you in advance for following this important swap guideline. Kiss

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. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.



It's that time of year again, time to go back to school.  And if you received your letter, then it is time to pack you trunk and prepare to go back to Hogwarts.  So much to do, we better get started!

In this Round of Back to Hogwarts, we will craft 1 Large, 1 Medium, and 1 Small.  If you are unclear on what constitutes various sizes, please check this post on the Swap FAQ's.

And to stretch your crafty muscles and to keep with our theme, you can choose to craft any three of the following six options...

~* an item based on your partner's House preference
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Shop
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Class
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Spell, Curse, or Potion
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Character or Magical Creature
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Quote or Magical Object[/b][/size]


PACKAGE EXAMPLES:
Your partner's House is Ravenclaw, fave shop is Ollivanders, fave class is Potions, fave Spell is Expecto Patronum, fave Character is Luna, and fave Quote is "It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to live".

You could make....
a LARGE Stenciled Ravenclaw Hoodie, a MEDIUM Wooden Wand, and a SMALL Pair of Luna's Raddish Earrings.  
OR
a LARGE embroidered Expecto Patronum Hoopla, a MEDIUM Cauldron Candle, and a SMALL bookmark with Dumbledore's quote.


You can self-partner aka IYP for this swap, if both people wish to be swap partners.  If you do this, please PM your partnering to the organizer before the close of signups.

If you want to participate, fill out the below questionnaire and send to organizer.

Note about Communication: For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just 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

  • 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.
.

ORGANIZER NOTE:  If you have additions or changes to your questionnaire after you signup, please hold onto them and PM them to your future partner.  THANK YOU! Kiss  ~*Please do PM if you decide to change houses so I can adjust your colors on the Student Roster.*~

Arg why now. I've justed signed up for another swap and now I really want to do this one... I have a rule of doing 1 swap at the time... Sad
I'm going to wait until de end of signups and see how I feel then. Sendouts for the other swap is 10 september so maybe I'll be fine doing both.

Ooooooh I haven't done an HP swap in ages and I have been rereading all the books. I'll have to think this over, but the forecast says 90% chance my questionnaire will be in by tonight.

Oddly enough I got a notification about this new swap while watching Harry Potter at my work (I work in a video store and get to watch movies all day long!). I'm debating though. Have to see if my crafting soulmate amc- wants to partner up with me again.
It's been a while since I've stretched my crafty fingers, or even been on here!
