SWAP DETAILS

This is a low-stress swap!

Your mission is to send one crafted item, and 6 additional items from the scavenger hunt list (so a total of 7 items).

Feel free to be creative in your search. Raiding your craftspace and supply stashes to find items is encouraged! If all else fails, there’s always the option of picking up an item or two from the shops.
Hopefully you’ll be inspired by the swap package your partner sends your way, and be motivated to create something special :slight_smile:

  • The scavenger hunt list will be posted after the swap closes for sign-ups.
  • 12 categories for the hunt will be listed, but you only have to match 7 of the categories.
  • Don’t forget to tag your items when you send them out so your partner knows which categories you fulfilled.
  • You can choose to send/receive all paper, all fabric or a combination of fabric & paper items.
  • You have the option of having 1 or 2 partners for this swap (if this is your first LC swap, you will only be allowed to have one swap partner).
  • No extras required, but you and your partner(s) may opt to swap for more items if it’s mutually agreed upon.
  • If you decide to spoil your swap partner with extras, please understand that your partner is not required to reciprocate.

I really think this would be a fun swap! I won’t be back to my crafting space until Aug 21st! But, I bet I can still pick up things and make a few things while road tripping and then power craft when I return…hmmm…I do love a scavenger hunt!

Scavenger hunts are so much fun! :smiley:

And really, you’re only required to send one crafted item…the rest of the items don’t have to be crafted items. But if your crafty mojo is in full force, go with it!

This sounds super fun, but I’m wary of overbooking myself when I’m already so busy at the moment… if I can finish off at least one of the swaps I’ve signed up for already before the signups for this one close, I’ll join! :slight_smile:

This sounds amazing! I’m on a break from swaps right now, but I hope you do it again in the future :hugs:

This might be a good swap to get back into it! I haven’t swapped on LC and it was a looong time ago on the other site. Hmmm…

So am I right to assume that the scavenger hunt items will need to be crafted and/or craft supplies? What’s the “size” requirement of each item or the total “size” for the package?

I haven’t done one of these before but it sounds fun :slight_smile:

4 Likes

Yes, it’s a combination of one crafted item (minimum requirement) + 6 additional craft supplies.

It’s totally up to the sender to decide on what they want to send, but you can expect at least 7 small items from your swap partner.

For example, if the category was ‘postal’ one could send mailing labels, postage stamps (real or stickers), postcards, envelopes, rubber stamp related to happy mail, etc. as paper options. For fabric options, you could send a fat quarter with mail-related images, faux fabric stamps, a sewn fabric envelope, a mail organizer, etc.

Obviously, some categories will be skewed (i.e. either more paper or more fabric possibilities), hence you only have to fulfill 7 of the categories :smiley:

Thanks! I think I’ll sign up when I have enough free time to fill in the questionnaire :slight_smile:

OK this sounds super fun. I’ve been missing my crafty mojo for a while now and wanting to get it back :slight_smile:

This sounds like fun! I might join if someone from Europe is joining. With the rules changing I’m not quite sure if I don’t have to pay customs on even the small packages from outside of Europe :frowning: .

Edit: I just checked the postal rates for outside of Europe and they have gone up once again. I’ll probably just have a look at the gallery.

Finally sent in my questionnaire :grin:

Just a reminder that signups for this swap will be closing on Saturday!
If you’re thinking about joining us, please do :smiley:

question: would I be able to knit an item for my partner? I guess I’m wondering if that counts as a fabric item? Totally fine if fabric actually means the type for sewing, as I could make paper items for this swap…
I’m teetering on the fence about joining, LOL
