In a nut shell the sweat shoppe ornament swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 3 or 6 like ornaments, and in return you will receive 3 or 6 different ornaments. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice.

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 9 (Ornament)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: Oct 7 to Oct 22
PM Organizer top picks by: Oct 24, 6pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: Nov 16
Date to send item by: Nov 19



Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):25

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

All ages allowed? must be over 18

This next part is for me and the Mods...
Swap Organizer himself/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/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~ Each participant will make 3 or 6 like items. For instance, 3 or 6 of 1 kind of ornament, or 3 sets of 1 kind of ornament AND 3 sets of another ornament.
~ Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe ornament discussion thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394576.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~ Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~ We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 3 items) or twice (for 6 items)


Please make a sample of what you are offering and post the picture on this thread before signups end so people can make their top picks list. And if you do not feel someone's offering meets swap requirements, please pm me before signups close.

Ooooooh - will be up for this one again!!!

Reserving this for future ornaments...

OK - I made these for this swap:

Two fawn diorama ornaments.


One doe ornament.


Three different snowman diorama ornaments - two glitter ones and one that has the snowball texture.

This one is turquoise blue on the outside, gold on the inside.


This one is silver on the outside, turquoise on the inside.


This one has the snow texture on the outside, pinkish on the inside.


The deer ones are slightly smaller than the snowmen ones.

So excited! These are ready to go! These are my
Hexy Deer Star Ornaments.
You can simply request an ornament, or request blue and gray or greens and I will do my best to accommodate. They hang by a black ribbon. The last two pictures show all the makes before I added the ribbon. They all have the Christmas tree fabric on the back.

Look at all the tiny stitches!

I have so many ornaments already made, some from last year, some from the year before. Would it be possible to offer them all and people can choose whichever they want? I've got an abundance, there certainly wouldn't be any shortage of choice, haha.

Oh, yay!  And of course I haven't actually created my offering yet.  I'll work on that tonight!  Or, you know, now.  Just tell my clients that I'm busy.  Grin

You could always call it Choose Your Fave like you've done in a previous round and then your post can show the offerings.
