The Craft Swap Signups are now closed! I'll email partners shortly!herlander_refugee
had a great idea in her last post of doing a kind of craft swap. I think this would be kind of cool to do. If you are interested, comment below with the following info. I'll pair people up & off we go.
*Edited to add: I'm aiming to close this off on
8 Nov in New Zealand/
7 Nov in most other countries to allow people time to make something specifically tailored to their swap partners if they want before the shipping deadline. If you want to join us after this date please PM me and I'll see if we can accomodate you.
-Basic is fine, this is a small craft swap that isn't meant to stretch people's budgets (you can go as far as you want but the aim is on affordable) both for supplies & for postage.
-'Craft' can be widely defined, but let's see if we can keep it 'reading or writing themed' if you are able to. Even making 4 to 6 cards with your photos, drawings or collages on them and packaging with envelopes would qualify, bookmarks, home made stickers or stamps, drawing someone writing a letter..... all welcome!
-Let's aim to ship by say 5 December to allow a bit of travel time overseas. If you need more time please communicate with your partner.
-This is a commitment. There will be someone on the other end hoping for some sort of Crafty Goodness.
-You may or may not end up with a pen pal at the end of this; some people may not be able to write regularly but others may be thrilled to find a pen pal. Participating won't commit you to an ongoing writing relationship unless you both so choose!
If this gets your interest, comment below with the following details. All comments are screened
. Myself (or Ariestess if she's got time and is interested) will do some random matches based on your answers & email your partner's details to you.Required info for participating
-Postal Address (including country)
-Only 1 swap partner? (I expect a 1:1 match but if we have interest and enough people we can see about doing multiple partners)
-Anything you want your Swapper to know (ie--religious preferences or not, interests, etc)?
I think that's all for now. Open to suggestions as usual!
