Details of swap:

Your mission will be to find something you have in common with your partner and craft 2 small items and 1 medium item -or- 2 medium items that apply to your commonality. Supplies are ok, too, as long as at least ONE item is crafted. Give your partner as much information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing! You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to “meet” new people and make some new crafty friends. Please post in the thread at least once per week, and when you post your pics, make sure to tell us what you and your partner had in common!

If you’re interested in seeing what was sent in previous versions of this swap, feel free to check the links.

If you are not sure what I mean by small or medium, here’s a rough guidline you can follow:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Ok, the package emojis for shipped/received are brilliant!

…considering this; I’m not quite sure what overcommitted looks like for the next month or two.

What she said…

I’m soooooo tempted! Going to think seriously about whether I have enough time to commit to it.

LOVE the Shipped/received icons!

We’ll have over a month to craft 2-3 items, depending on whether they are mediums or smalls. I should also note that supplies are fair game as long as you send at least ONE crafted item.

I’ll update the swap info to reflect this also.
