CRAFT SWAP!!!

Wow, there is definitely an interest in the craft swap, so now I'm way excited!

So, let's all make something really special!  Make a craft of your choice, and be sure to put a lot of heart and love into it.  Email me at skunkboylove@yahoo.com and I'll partner you up with someone.  Then, I would like to have everyone ship their item by the end of the day on Monday, January 25.

I'm taking entries for the swap until this coming Friday, which is January 15.  Please email me by then if you want to participate.  Annnnd, please only sign up if you seriously intend to give.  It's not cool when someone only receives (I've been on the short end before, and it's a thumbs down).

I would love to include our overseas friends, so please state in your email whether or not you are willing to ship overseas.  This is going to be sooooo fun!!!  xoxo Katie

P.S.  I will set up a Flickr group where we can post pictures of our gifts given and received.  There is no price range at this time, just make something special that doesn't break the bank!

  4. No, I didn't really know how to set a monetary limit, so that isn't specified.

  5. Yeah, what is the $$ range we are working within, and also, are you going to have some sort of screening process? Because the last swap that I did ended up being really disappointing, because I sent of my most favorite creation, and got what was obviously a rejected prototype in return, and that was sad :(

  6. If you aren't gonna set a money limit, maybe set some sort of "at your own discretion" quality standard? Just so people have an ides of what sort of thing to send

  7. That was kind of the "crafts with lots of heart and love" thing. As long as everyone participating is crafting their best, I think it should be okay. That's just kind of the risk you run when you sign for a swap. There isn't really any way to screen that beforehand.

  8. Okay, I trust you :) And I think your blog attracts a specific kind of person, who would want to send in something full of heart and love, so I bet it will be great :)

  11. Okay, last post, I promise, but Plush Team just did a craft swap, and they each posted what they received on their blog with pictures and stuff, and I think that could be so fun for us to all show each other what we get! I will definitely blog about mine :D
