Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you think about Halloween throughout the year, not just in October?  Do you love opening presents?  If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a Mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, we count down the days to Halloween starting with 10/18. You will open day 13 on October the 18th, day 12 on October the 19th and so on until 10/30.  (This is a flexible time schedule however.  Please communicate with your partner.  If you or they need to adhere to a different schedule, that is, of course, okay as long as youve both worked it out beforehand.)
 
Requirements:
-You must post in this thread before signing up
-A minimum of 13 items, one for each day.
-At least 6 crafted items must be sent, equal to 5 small (Under $10 or under two hours to craft) and 1 medium (Medium = 2 or more hours to craft or $10-$30 dollars)
-Spoiling is okay but do not expect the same in return. If you would like to spoil, please discuss it with your partner!
-You must post in the thread at least once a week (or communicate reason you cannot)
-You must PM both your partner and organizer when you send and receive
-You must post photos in the gallery and if you cant please ask your partner to do so.  We all want to oooh and aaah over the goodies!

Some things to think about:
*THIS SWAP IS LARGE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY ON JOINING AND IF YOU DOUBT YOU CAN DO IT PLEASE DONT JOIN.  WE WANT THIS SWAP TO BE TOTALLY FLAKE FREE!!!!

* I STRONGLY recommend that you have a Pinterest board for this swap, as it helps out your partner greatly. Please keep this updated and have at least 20 items on it. If you do not have a Pinterest board, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (Etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

*If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods you should make this the package that is opened on day 1!

*I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

Yay!  So happy to see interest in this swap!  It's always my favorite!  I'm going to start getting names up and so on this evening.

MissingWillow brought up that the name of this swap might be confusing.  There did used to be a swap with this name that had different criteria, i.e. 13 items for Day 13, 12 items for Day 12, etc...  In comparison, this swap is much smaller.  But I've always thought that the word "mini" doesn't really fit this swap either.  Having to send 13 items is hardly mini (nor are minature items required).  Since the other swap hasn't taken place in five years, I chose to leave the word out so as not to confuse newer Craftster swappers.  Unfortunately, I may have confused more longterm swappers!  Hopefully, once everyone reads the posting, it becomes a little clearer but I'm sorry for any misconceptions!!!!!

Ohhhh, I wondered why it was called "mini" when I did it last year.  Now I get it!  And count me in - I'll do the questionnaire when I'm not using the iPad.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I totally want to sign up for this!!! Just so I'm understanding correctly, I can send all of my items at once in one package (wrapped individually of course) and my partner would open one a day, correct? Or am I sending 13 packages? So excited!  Grin
