Craftster may be dying, but this swap will go on.  See second post for revised details and important links!

Swap name: Little Good Things Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: thanate
co-organizer: craftylittlemonkey
Sign-up date range: 11/29-12/15
Date to send item by: January 6, 2020



(YES, we are crafting over the holidays!!  It is small! You can do it!)

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

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

Additional Age requirement? no

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
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: 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:
It's cold and dark and stressful in the Northern Hemisphere, everyone seems to have complicated feelings about the year-end holidays, and the swap boards are usually dead for the last week of the year.  Let's have an easy little swap to remember the little things that make us happy!

You may choose to have one or two partners. (first time swappers, stick with one, please)

We will be sending:

*One small crafted item (2 hrs or less crafting time; unlike the OTT swaps, physical size is up to you.)
*a card-- share a little good thing from your life!  
*a small extra (chocolate, tea samples, ephemera, a packet of beads or buttons... whatever you think your partner would like!)

This is a low bar for international shipping-- you can craft an ATC or small prayer flag & pick a flat extra.  However, any package that can't be sent with tracking and/or a receipt for proof of shipping will follow the papercraft swap rule that missing packages must be replaced/resent by the original swapper rather than getting an angel.  

We will have check-in questions in the thread (because they're fun!) but if you're traveling or buried in relatives for a week don't sweat it; just check back in when you're back online.   Smiley

...

If you want to participate, information to send to thanate and craftylittlemonkey:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Little Good Things Swap, R2
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)
Do you agree to send with a DC# (in-US) or keep your receipt if possible, and resend any lost packages (as per papercraft swap rules) if what you send is too small to do so?
Would you like 1 or 2 partners? (first time swappers only 1, please)
Some people want to send to everybody; do you mind if your address gets shared with more swappers than you are partnered with?
Do you have any allergies?
Any allergens in your household (pets, smoke, etc)?
Are there crafted items you'd particularly like to get?
Anything you don't really want?

Craftster is dying, but this swap goes on.  Here are the changes so far:

*Obviously the swap is going to continue Somewhere Else after the 19th. We are now live on MeWe!  Go here to join the group!!  This will be our gallery/discussion thread.  

*My e-mail for this swap will be LittleGoodThings (at) thanate.com, so make sure that'll make it through your spam filters, and you can contact me there after we lose access to PMs.

*Sign-ups were sent by PM and email; please make certain you have a copy on your computer or other non-Craftster location!

*Any missing packages will be replaced by me, or angeled by someone else in the swap.  

*Several people are talking about sending to extra people beyond who they get partnered with because this is the Last Swap.  Everyone will get normal 1-2 partner pairings, & not be held to any further comitment.  If you do more, please be sure to include your address in your extra packages so it is easy for anyone who wants to reciprocate later.  Also, I have added an opt-out in case anyone doesn't want their address shared beyond partners & organizers.

Well, crap.

sweets4ever, would it be ok to use this thread to post information so I can run this (one last...) swap privately?  Or do I need to link to details elsewhere?

In light of this turn of events, I for one would LOVE for this swap to be the last hurrah of Craftster.org, even if there's no feedback system and the gallery goes elsewhere. It is a theme that struck a chord with so many of us, and it kinda speaks to what Craftster is all about. Thank you for offering to take it into private swap territory, thanate; we could all use some cheering up!  Smiley I'll send you my questionnaire if the unofficial swap moves forward.
