Swap name: Bowie Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: primashonna
Sign-up date range: June 5-20
Date to send item by: July 20

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

Non-U.S. participants allowed? sure!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? ask parents first

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

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

Details of swap: Anything and everything Bowie related!  Hmmm... let's say one time consuming ("big" but doesn't have to actually be large, ya know?) and two other "smaller" items.  If you want to do more or something a little different, just make sure you communicate with your partner!

I'm going to borrow some already borrowed rules from 'qazicat' because I've had the annoying experience of being flaked on in a swap and I'd like to avoid it here!

Additionally, I'm using some of PinkMafia's rules:

1. If this is your first swap please read: (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. You must post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

3. I will be giving feedback in the following way:

great swapper- for those who follow all the rules.
Did not thank partner or pm organizer when package was received- for those with bad manners
Poor communication- if you don't respond to my PMs but have been logging on to craftster
Shipped Late (w/ poor communication, or if over 1 week late w/ or w/out communication)

4. Please put "Bowie Swap" in the title of all PMs.

5. Please make an item that you would like to receive. Do some research  or communicate with your partner.

6.Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States.  I will be pretty firm about this rule!  If youre sending a package to another country, or if you don't reside in the United States, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner(s) and the organiser. 

7.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organiser.  When you have received, please remember to inform your partner and the organizer!  If you are late, you need to pm your partner and the swap organizer ASAP.  You are still responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!  A blatant disregard for deadlines (without communication, that is) will result in a "sent late" comment in your swap profile.

8. I will send reminder PMs to check on your progress, this will help people avoid flaking in the long crafting time. If you have any concerns or questions, pm me rather than just dropping out. If you and your partner have problems let me know so we can organize something.   Lets make this a flake free and fun swap.


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

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
What kind of things can you craft?
What knid of crafts would you like to recieve?
What would you not want to recieve?
Favorite colors, symbols, patterns, etc?
Favorite Bowie "look" (Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Thin White Duke, etc), song, or movie?
What else would you like to tell your partner? (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, allergies, etc.)


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

I can't even imagine what I could do, but I'm in! I will think of something wonderful!


Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
