Invite Your Partner 2024

GALLERY!

Let’s dance!!

Welcome to the Invite Your Partner Swap 2024. This swap is tailormade for you, even down to your choice of partner! For this swap, you can invite a Lettuce Craft member to swap with you, or you can put your name on a list of members looking for a partner.

The swap requirements are up to you and your partner to decide. You can make the swap as big or as small as you like – anything from an ATC to an astrolabe constructed entirely of matchsticks. Just make sure you discuss the time and cost commitments with your partner.

Some ideas for your swap could be:

  • one fabulous large item
  • one tiny thing
  • a favourite theme, colour, or fandom
  • fill a shoebox
  • just three things
  • follow the guidelines of another swap

You are allowed to have two partners in this swap if you want to.

Communication is key in this swap. We have a long crafting time, and we’re swapping with people we like and admire. Please make sure you can follow through on your commitments, and keep in touch with your partner and the organizer if there are any problems. There will be weekly check in questions in the discussion.

It can be scary to ask someone to swap, but I hope you will give it a go! Think about how you’d feel if someone asked you – you’d be thrilled, right? Of course, sometimes time demands or postage costs mean that someone can’t commit to a swap right now, so please don’t take it to heart if you get a no. Ask someone else - there’s a bunch of wonderful lettuce heads who’d love to dance with you! And if it’s too scary, or if you don’t know who to ask, keep reading, I can help :smiley_cat:

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A PARTNER

If you’d like to join in, but you haven’t asked anyone yet, you can be on the list of swappers looking for a partner. PM @jemimah and I’ll add you to the list. You can just put your name down – I’m sure someone will be thrilled to swap with you! Or, if you’d like to, you can be a bit more specific about crafts you’d like to swap (keep it brief). e.g. – “@jemimah would love to swap with someone who could crochet silk mittens for her velociraptor. She could weave a model Millenium Falcon for you from bamboo and moonbeams.”

Don’t send your questionnaire to me until you have decided on your partner and communicated with them. Once I have received forms from both partners, I’ll update the participant list.

Great! I will put you on the looking for a partner list.

If you want to, you can add what kind of things you like to make, and what you might like to receive. Just let me know :grinning:

I wouldn’t say I’m actively looking for a partner for this round, but I’m totally open to the idea if someone were looking for a low-key swap (e.g., ATCs, 4x6, etc.). But I’m fully content to sit this one out if that setup doesn’t spark for anyone.

I’m currently in a swap, plus going to make valentines for family/friends, plus doing some crafting for myself. I’m going to be organizing my craft room soon as well.
I can’t really do a personal swap atm.

Cool - I’ll put you on the list anyway, so that anyone looking for a small flat swap can see easily :smiley_cat:

I’ve asked @Bunny1kenobi to swap with me and she said “yes”! I have been eyeing her jewelry and art for some time!

If anyone who does mold items wants to do this swap or a personal swap please hit me up…I need FLAT clay or paintable flat things to glue onto some treasure boxes I want to make…things like leaves, seashells, mushrooms, florishes, etc. They will be painted by me, but I seriously do not want to buy supplies for this…
