Lettuce Swapping Rules

Details of swap:

The idea of this swap is to craft for your partner 12 (or 6) items based on their interests.
For 12 items you will make 10 small items for days 1-10, for days 11, 12 you will make 2 medium items. For 6 items you will make 4 small items and 2 mediums. Please have a well stocked pinterest (or similar) and be detailed in your questionnaire to help out your partner.

Breakdown:

12 Items or 6 Items (open 1 every other day)
Days 1-10 small (10 small items) or Days 1-8 small (4 small items)
Days 11-12 medium (2 medium items) or Days 10-12 medium (2 medium items)

75% crafted items & 25% store bought.
(extras are optional and are solely up to you and your partner.)

Below are guidelines for size requirements to help everyone.

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

The Rules:

  • each item should be wrapped
  • number each item (1 - 12, with number 1 being the gift to open on 12/14 and number 12 to be opened on 12/25…)
  • If you are only making 6 items then just number 1 - 6 and your partner will open one every other day
  • post each item in the gallery when you open it (or within a day or 2)
  • Extras are optional, but quality is NOT. Please read your partner’s questionnaire and make sure you are sending them something they will like, and not just random things thrown in a box. It’s never fun to receive a thought-less package.

I’ll be sending in my questionnaire to join this one too! I’m glad there’s a long signup period because I want to make sure that my Pinterest is updated and my questionnaire is as complete as I can make it.

I have been working hard on my questionnaire. I know how stressful it can be to get a blank one. LOL!

@ geekgirl
I would like to sign up, but still have a week of two of my qualifying time and my 1 successful trade. Would i still have time to sign up after these are completed? Also, what is the Pinterest for?

sent mine!

Hi @Juju - I think that timeline is really tight and doubt that it would work out. The sign ups for this swap end on July 30 so people have lots of time to craft. There will be other swaps! I actually have another smaller Christmas in mind for later on - make a fabric Christmas gift bag and fill it with a couple of crafted items and some store bought stocking stuffers.

The pinterest is so your partner can get an idea of what you like. For example if you list you want a scarf, that could mean a lot of different things but if you have pinterest board for Christmas swap ideas you could pin a few samples of scarves you like.

Also some people don’t mind receiving items not on their questionnaire and their pinterest can give you ideas.

Just sent my questionnaire in! I’m excited to try something new!

Hey @Juju while you wait to be able to swap, why don’t you share some of your creations on the regular boards? We’d love to see what you make and we have a great community!

Where’s all the Christmas swappers at? Looks like we will be having a super small group this year!

Small but mighty!

I’ve been slacking on filling out my Q. Will try to get it in today :slight_smile:

Are most people signing up for 12 days or 6? I’m planning to do 12, it was so much fun last year!

The smaller swap sounds like really fun! I’ve been reading along with this thread but I know I won’t be able to commit to this swap, so it’s good to know there’ll be a smaller swap I could join!

I can’t wait to see what everyone will make for this swap, I’m sure it will be awesome.

I have been mulling over this and panicked yesterday because I thought the cut off was 20 not 30. Still thinking about my capacity and which size!

I’ve started on my Q and updating my Pinterest. I know how useful it is to have a full questionnaire with lots of ideas, especially for this swap, so it’s taking me a bit. Will find time soon to finish and get it submitted.
