Swap name: 2019  Make-A-Friend Revival : Miniature Version
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: BigBangMomma
Co-organizer:
Sign-up date range: 3/19/19 to 4/6/19
---Between 4/6 and 4/8 you will send me a list of participants you have/have not swapped with, or partner requests. I will try to match people with someone new to them, or that they have not swapped with often. We are making a friend! I will get partners out hopefully by 4/9/19
Date to send item by: You will send two packages.
Package 1: 4/23/19
Package 2: 5/23/19
----EXTENDED SEND-OUTS TO 5/31/19

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no

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

Additional Age requirement? No
**This CANNOT BE your first swap ever. No exceptions.**

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
- Is at least 18 years old: 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

- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

Details of swap:
-You will be sending two packages. You may choose to have 1 or two partners.

-Package one will include a thoughtful letter to your partner, a small crafted item that is something you love to make, and a small purchased extra that represents something in your life that you love. The purchased extra does not have to represent your crafty life. This package is about you, which means that you can start working on it as soon as you sign up and mail as soon as you have a partner!

-Package two will be sent after you read your partners letter.  You will take what you learn from that to craft a medium item you think your partner will love, or will be special to your partner based on your letter, and hopefully the pm communications you havewe are making a new friend, after all! You will also include 2 small items that you think your partner will love. These items can be crafted or purchased.

I've been doing some thinking about our international swappers and the cost of shipping.

For international swappers only, I am going to edit package sending requirements as follows:

Package 1: You may choose to only send your letter to your partner as package one. However, your craft must be completed, your small must be purchased, and you must share a picture in the Gallery by the send out date for package 1 of these two items for your partner to see. Please let your partner and myself know if you are only sending your letter for package 1, and if that goes missing, you will be required to resend your letter.

Package 2: This will include original requirements of package 2, plus you will send the craft and small from package 1 as well.



Your letter should include things such as: what is your favorite thing about swapping, your favorite things in swap partners, how did you pick your username, what has been your favorite swap, what has been your favorite vacation, what is a funny memory you have, etc.. The more you chat with your partner in pms and the more you include in your letter, the better your partner will be able to craft something for you. There is not a length requirement for your letter, but please put thought into it.

I know this will be great, and have no doubt this wont be an issue.but.in order to fulfill the swap requirements, BOTH packages must be sent on time. To make sure we are all active, I will ask that everyone post at least 1 time every two weeks. I'll try to ask some good questions throughout the swap to keep us all active and excited!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: BigBangMomma

Oh my goodness, this sounds fun! I am currently not allowed to add to my pile of things to do because I'm about to travel, but I will ponder until after I am done with trip planning!

ChameleonHound I hope it works out for you! I hope the long sign ups give lots of people a chance to sign up. I've been around here since 2011 and there are STILL so many amazing people I have not swapped with!

Enjoy your travels. I hope it is for pleasure, not work!

Yes, I'm really glad the sign-ups have a long time range!

Traveling for fun, road-tripping across the country to visit family. I'm trying to strike the perfect balance between planning and leaving room for spontaneity, and it's tough!  Shocked But I plan to craft along the way, and I'm sure I can find some goodies that could find their way into a swap package.

Well, the good part is, you can actually start working on package #1 right now since it about you and your likes, so the only package you'd have a "big" time constraint on would be the second which doesn't ship until May!

I would love to road trip across the country! That sounds fun!

Oh, Im seriously considering this. I loved the MAF swaps Ive done before. My semester wraps up at the end of April, which gives me time to get the medium craft done. And there is just one small due before that, which i think is doable since crafting is my self- care.
