 To join round 6, you MUST be clear in rounds 1-3. If you haven't recieved feedback for these rounds, you can pm me with proof that your partner has recieved and I will allow you to swap. Also, if you are a friend of craftster OR have been an angel before (with proof in your profile), you can now have 3 wishes out instead of 2.

If you need to ask someone a question about a wish on their list, PLEASE do so via PM!!! I'd like to keep this thread as neat as possible, so please help me out here! Thanks!!!  Grin

All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!!.  YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE UNLESS YOU PM ME AND I ADD YOU TO THE LIST! Anyone watching this thread who thinks they might be interested in participating at a later time is very, VERY welcome to pm me answering the swap questions now...and then you can participate whenever you want. Feel free to be pre-approved even if you're not sure that you will actually pick someone, it's better to be safe than sorry! Please try to have a list prepared BEFORE you start swapping, it makes things much easier! Thank You!  Grin

This is Round Six of the Ongoing Wish Swap originally organized by eowynmn - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54495.0

then went to crafty_dame for Round Two:

then hertrigger for Round Three:

the for Lv2ScrpBk  Round Four:

and back to hertrigger for Round Five:

You MUST be pre-approved to claim someone. Please check the list to see if you are preapproved before you claim!! and remember only 2 claims at a time (unless your a friend of craftster or have been an angel!)


If you want to participate, here is the information to send to organizer:

Name of swap: Wish Swap Round Six
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

Swap name: Ongoing Wish List Swap ROUND SIX
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: seaofstars
Sign-up date range: ongoing
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after wish is granted

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): HECK NO!

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All Ages

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

Please READ CAREFULLY! This is a pretty new style of swap, and it works differently than most.

The first person puts a list together of all the things they could imagine wanting that they cant make. YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.

Then people will read your list, and see if they see something they want to/can make on there. They reply to the thread and say I claim Suzie and Im going to make her a pink scarf" or whichever wish they are fulfilling. When they reply, they will also say "THis is my first wish" or "this is my third wish, but the first one has been recieved" They would PM Suzie to get her info to mail it.

THEN COMES THE NEXT FUN PART FOR YOU. YOU POST YOUR LIST OF WISH ITEMS YOU WANT. (Please have your wish ready, this swap moves very quickly!)
Then someone picks you and fulfills ONE of your wishes.
Then they post their list, and so on.

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them.

YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.  Please be communicative if you are having any issues. THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP - Don't forget to get a DC NUMBER when shipping in your own country!

You can participate as many times as you want but no person can owe more than 2 things at a time (UNLESS: you are a friend of craftster or have been an angel).  PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN ROUND 1. That's because this will be a fairly short swap, and we want everyone to have a chance to swap.

PLEASE LIST YOUR COUNTRY so people know if they have to ship outside their country to get to you! (even if you're from the US, still list your country! not everyone lives in the US!)

LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND I CAN ANSWER AND MODIFY THIS INFORMATION. Please be sure to include "Ongoing Wish Swap 6" in the subject line of your pm!!

Credit goes to eowynmn for the original swap idea and most of the info and crafty_dame for the "new" rules  Grin




People pre-approved to participate in this swap - If you have a number next to your name that means you owe that many wishes (updated every 24 hours at the least) - LIMIT of 2! - help me by not having more than 2 outstanding wishes at a time please!: ( i will try to keep this in alphabetical order so that you can find your name easier!)

the number next to your name will be how many you have outstanding (meaning how many hasnt recieved yet)
PINK will mean that you cant claim anyone else until you send out.

:Please see last page for updates on how many wishes you have out!:
