Calling you crafters!

This is for everyone regardless of what craft you do.

The idea behind this swap is to make a little gift/something from the craft you do and send to your partner. This is a great way to see with your own eyes what crafts others do.

So for example, if you stitch you may get a partner that card makes so you will get a hand made card(s) in the post! Or if you knit you may get a lovely cross stitched gift in the post!

Be kind - if you make small and quick items then please send at least two items. Send the kind of package that you would love to get and would rate a 5 heart for!!

Extras - If you wish but not compulsory, as long as the crafted item is sent then that is brilliant!

Exciting? I think so! I love crafting!

NEWBIES welcome as you have to start somewhere - must have a complete profile filled out by start of this swap!

Members only with 4.8 rating or above - no recent unexplained 1's or 3 either. - will remove questionable swappers.

If you do not fit the requirements you will be removed from the exchange.

Please NO flakers. I will angel if required but I would prefer not too. I know all who sign up will be lovely and send wonderful crafted gifts to your partner. Any problems please let me know, always happy to help.

Happy crafting!

This is a USA swap. Not an international swap.

Yay, this is my favorite kind of craft swap! :)

sarahjames1229 08/16/2013 #

I make homemade, organic body products (lotions, room sprays, lip scrubs, etc) -- is that considered a craft? To me it is, but I can see how some may not see it that way

drgngirl 08/20/2013 #

Does this include making ATCs?

coolbaker5 08/22/2013 #

@drgngirl - yes, I would make a few maybe have a theme. Totally up to you :)

TheSharpieKid 08/23/2013 #

I'm brand new to this, really excited about it! Does anyone have any advise for me?

Cheekycow 08/23/2013 #

Would be lovely if someone made a similar swap to this as an international (or european) one, would have loved to join!

Ristinkay33 08/24/2013 #

Just realised I joined but I'm in Canada, is this ok? I can drop, but please make an international swap like this! :)

coolbaker5 08/24/2013 #

This is a USA only swap. @Cheekycow you can start an international swap yourself. @Ristinkay33 - No, Canada would make it an international swap. Like I said anyone can make an international swap.

Ristinkay33 08/25/2013 #

Thanks anyways. Have fun.

Ambelleina 08/25/2013 #

Oh man, pretty ATCs and body products...you guys are so crafty! I can't wait for this swap! :)

earthaddictart 08/26/2013 #

I will join an international swap - but new to Swapbot so not ready to host yet?

jenthewen 08/29/2013 #

I would be willing to start an international version if no one has already done so? Coolbaker5 is this ok?

coolbaker5 08/29/2013 #

Yes @jenthewen

JaMaJo 08/31/2013 #

I wish you would consider letting sarahjames make her lotions. I can't make lotions or lipbalms. I consider that a craft because I see that stuff in my area all the time at craft shows. :)

althena 08/31/2013 #

Love this swap! If I weren't so busy with another big crafty swap I would join. Hope you do it again! :)

coolbaker5 08/31/2013 #

@JaMoJo I have sent sarahjames an email asking her to come back. She is welcome to trade her lotion.

drgngirl 09/ 1/2013 #

Time to bite the bullet.... I can do this while I babysit each day. I'm in! Got a couple of ideas, but will wait to see what my partner would like! Hate to make ATCs for someone who doesn't collect them!

fawnscrafts 09/ 1/2013 #

I would love ATCs that aren't my cant haves.

I am joining, I made something for this swap and not I can join it.

fawnscrafts 09/ 1/2013 #

I forgot to add, When partners are assigned and the one I send to, if you like tea, make sure you mention it here or on your profile.

Ambelleina 09/30/2013 #

Just dropped mine off at the post office! Should postmark tomorrow 09.30 and arrive on Thursday...hope my partner likes her craft! <3

jacquierae 09/30/2013 #

Im sorry I didnt mark mine as sent but i sent and she already received...Im new at this and its gonna take me a while to get the hang of it :)

kquevedo 10/ 2/2013 #

I just finished mine - but I can't get in to see my partner's address. I know it's late, but I was still hoping to send it. Any idea how I get the address?

kim6erly 10/ 9/2013 #

Just fabulous! I've been flaked again on a nice swap. I really hate this, my partner never sent anything.

kquevedo 10/ 9/2013 #

Yep, I finally got mine out... but didn't receive anything.

Ambelleina 10/10/2013 #

@kim6erly I wouldn't mind angeling for you if you PM me your mailing info. :)

drgngirl 10/10/2013 #

Too bad I've been flaked on for this swap... I was really looking to receiving something great. :( My partner hasn't been online since September 11th.

Marsha907 10/15/2013 #

I too got flaked on. I was really hoping for a great swap. Disappointed.

Hag53 10/19/2013 #

I got flaked on too...

mumsie 12/ 5/2013 #

I guess I'm also in the "flaked on club." It really is disappointing.
