It's that time of year again!  Time to sign up for the MINI 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SWAP!!!!  It may seem a bit early but that just means theres a long crafting time.  Especially since this swap is on the bigger side and the holidays can be hectic so, starting early just makes things easier and stress free.  
Be sure to read everything through and that you understand it all.
If you have any questions feel free to post them in this thread or send me a pm.


Swap name: MINI 12 Days Of Christmas Swap 2019
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: lindyv321
Co-organizer: Audania1

Limited to a certain number of people: No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No
All ages allowed? 16 and over, regardless of your age make sure you have a way to the PO and the means to participate in this swap.
  
This is a big swap and commitment please do not sign up if you cannot commit!
I reserve the right to deny any Craftster's entrance into this swap for any reason including the following...
-ANY "negative" feedback and/or comments
-poor communication in past swaps

Note: I will also leave feedback reflecting your actual participation in the swap (good/poor communication, early/late sending, etc)

- 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

Details of swap:

The idea of this swap is to send 12 days of goodies to your partner. Everyone will open one gift per day for 12 days leading up to Christmas. You can choose to open the 1st-12th or the 13th-25th You will send:
Days 1-8 small
Days 9-10 medium
Days 11-12 large
So that is 2 large, 2 medium, and 8 smalls for a total of 12 days

You can send a mix of crafted and store bought items but please be sure to send 75% crafted and 25% bought

Below are Craftster guidelines for size requirements to help everyone. If in doubt about sizes, you can always send a pm to me and get a second opinion, and if youre still in doubt, ask another person in this swap. Here are the guidelines:

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

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


And the links to galleries for more ideas:
2018: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=456525.0
2017: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453294.msg5463468#msg5463468
2016: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450779.msg5417964#msg5417964

Note: In the past there has been slight confusion on how to label packages.  So just to make it clear the first package you want your partner to open, you label as #1.  Then for the 2nd package you want them to open youd label #2 the second and so on.  So, #12 package would be the last package opened.  You can also label them by dates, as in put 'DEC 1' on the first gift your partner will open then the last gift would be labeled DEC 12th.  

The RULES:
1. You must send ALL PM's to lindyv321 & Audania1 and all PM's must have the subject line: Mini 12 Days of Christmas.  

2. You must post in the original thread at least once a week! To help with this I will ask a question each week you can respond to.

3.PM's must be sent to the organizer/co-org and your partner when you send and receive. If you are sending within the USA or Canada you must get a DC# / tracking #. If you are sending outside of your country, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping, it will be requested if there are any problems! This is mandatory!

4. When you open each days package, you will then need to post in the gallery. I ask that you post pictures within a reasonable amount of time. I know that the Holiday season can be quite hectic, but please get them posted within 5 days of opening. Posting pictures is a requirement for this swap! If you don't have a digital camera and cannot get access to one, please ask your partner to take pictures before they send.

5. The following items are NOT allowed in swap packages:
- Anything that is illegal in the U.S. or wherever you are sending your package to or from.
- Any items that have a legal age requirement to consume in the U.S. such as tobacco, alcohol, pornography etc.
- Mixed CDs containing copyrighted music or similar, including copied software, CDs, DVDs, etc
If you are uncertain please check Craftsters guidelines as well as your local post office

6. If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you and your partner live in the same country. I don't want anyone's package to go MIA with customs. Also, be sure to let your partner know so they can be opened ASAP and not spoil.

7. 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. Because of the time of the year packages can get WET due to the post office/ups/etc. leaving them on the doorstep AND some swappers have suggested that you also do this with anything you might send to a hot climate that might melt on your swap goodies.

8. Also, if you will be shipping to a partner that is in a HOT climate during the swap send outs, please do not include anything that might melt on their swap goodies. Think about wrapping them in a plastic baggie or something similar.

9. I highly recommend that each of you put together a PINTEREST. These are a huge help for your swap partner. They get to look through all the things you have put into it to get a feel for what you like.  

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your packages and other details about participating in a swap.

AND AS A REMINDER:
Please remember to keep in the holiday spirit.  Extras are optional-but quality is NOT optional.  I want everyone to receive nice items that were crafted/bought with them in mind.  So, in other words Please read their questionnaire over and over and make sure you are sending them something they will like, and not just random things thrown in a box.  Its never fun to receive a thought-less package, especially when they worked hard to make you crafty wonderful-ness from the heart.
