Swap Ideas for Round 5

It’s that time again! A new year, a new round of swaps! Let’s hear your swap ideas! This time around is a bit different. If you want to host a swap, in your post please use this template:
Name of Swap:
Swap Organizer:
Swap Requirements:
Length of Swap:
This will help us when we set up a poll for voting.

If you don’t want to host a swap, but want to suggests one, please, in big bold letters include SUGGESTION at the top of the post.

We will be taking ideas from January 4th-January 18th. After that time we will set up a poll to vote.

In other news, we are hoping that the database will be ready in 2021 and we will no longer have to do swaps this way. Thank you so much for your patience, I know it can be a bit much, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Name of Swap: Miniature Make a Friend
Swap Organizer: Lynx2Lancer
Swap Requirements: You will hand-write (or type if writing is hard for you) a letter to your partner telling them about you (your likes, interests, dreams, ambitions, anything you want them to know!), you will craft or purchase a small item to represent something that you are interested in (this does not have to be craft related), and you will craft for your partner a medium item that relates to their interests. When I hosted this on the old site, we sent the letter first, then crafted. We will not do that this time (you will include your letter in your package), so I will have a more inclusive questionnaire to help guide you. The most important thing to remember is, the thought is you will be making a new friend, so ideally you will also be messaging back and forth so you can create a very special gift for your partner. When sign ups end, I’ll ask you to message me a list of people you have 1) never swapped with before 2) only swapped with a few times so that you truly get an opportunity to make a new friend!
Length of Swap: 1.5 week sign up, then submit partner “wish list,” with partners 1-2 days after, 1 month of crafting time.

Name of Swap: Use What You Have Round 2
Swap Organizer: Kwality570
Swap Requirements: I know we already had a round of this here on Lettuce Craft, but I bet that there are a lot of people on the site that have a hefty stash of items in their arsenal for crafting. I definitely could use a little more thinning out in my craft room. :smiley: The challenge of this swap is to craft solely from items you have in your stash with no purchased items. Size: One medium and two smalls.
Length of Swap: 2 week sign up and 1 month of crafting time.
