Would you like to get to know some of your fellow craftsters?  Here's a great way to find out what you have in common with other crafters in our community!

Details of swap:

Your mission will be to find something you have in common with your partner and craft to that. Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books.  Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids.  Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run.  Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.  

This swap is for 2 small items and 1 medium item -OR- 2 mediums (whichever works best for whatever inspiration strikes you) that apply to your commonality.  Give your partner as much information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing! You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to "meet" new people and make some new crafty friends. Please post in the thread at least once per week, and when you post your pics, make sure to tell us what you and your partner had in common!

Round 1 Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423857.0#axzz2uT8j8N00
Round 2 Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432316.0
Round 3 Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438730.0
Round 4 Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=449762.0

Shipments within the US will require Delivery Confirmation.  If you are shipping internationally, you'll need your shipping receipt.  


If you are not sure what I mean by small or medium, here's a rough guideline you can follow:


By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

SIGNUPS WILL CLOSE AT 10 PM MOUNTAIN TIME ON 4/1!

One of the swaps I've been waiting on has been postponed, so I am seriously considering joining one of these finally.  Who am I kidding? You'll probably find my sign up today or later this week...now to turn on my laptop.....

Darn! I was hoping to be able to take part in this swap, but current schedule doesn't let me do this within the little over 2 weeks. Will look out for the gallery though and maybe sign up next round. The first half of April is not good for me for swaps... Sad

Im a little confused, you craft your commonality, but you don't need to find your commonality?
