Lettuce Swapping Rules

Details of swap:

The idea of this swap is to craft for your partner 12 items based on their interests. You will make 7 small items for days 1-7, for days 8-10 you will make 3 medium items and days 11 & 12 will be large items. Please have a well stocked pinterest (or similar) and be detailed in your questionnaire to help out your partner.

Breakdown:
Days 1-7 small (7 small items)
Days 8-10 medium (3 medium items)
days 11-12 large (2 large 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 12/24…)
  • 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.

Would you enjoy receiving food items as your gifts? (cookies, candy, etc…)
If yes, please list some of your favorites:

(I am asking you list out so many items to give your partner something to work with. Nothing worse than wanting to make a partner happy but getting no details to work with!)

Do you want to receive any Holiday themed items? If so list them here and give details:
Do you have a preference on whether you make holiday themed items or not.

Do you have wrapping preferences or guidelines: ***For example, I prefer low maintenance wrapping and recycled wrapping (like comics or brown paper grocery bags that are decorated) without bows, etc…

I love this swap! I’ll be signing up!

Me me me. I love this swap so much, but I’m always diffident about signing up because I’m in Ireland, and it always means expensive mailing costs for my partner. So I’ll sign up if someone is happy to do the cost of international mail!

Sending my info!

Me too! I always struggle with what to ask for because I never have no idea what I want!

I want to sign up for this swap so bad but I’m also kind of scared to. It sounds like so much fun!

Do it! There’s a long crafting period.

I always stay organized with a spreadsheet to track my progress.

Same here! I’ve never done this swap, but I’ve always wanted to. The mailing costs and extra shipping time seem a big ask.

Thinking thinking…

A spreadsheet is a good idea. This swap makes me nervous because I’m the slowest crafter on the planet. The idea of something taking under 2 hours to make is mind boggling to me :joy:

I’m planning to sign up but I need to put some thought into my questionnaire and spend some time on my Pinterest first.
