For this swap, YOU CHOOSE which type of craft to send! Choose a craft you are really good at to impress your swap partners. You will send an envelope, box, or whatever of your craft to each of two partners. Because craft/art sizes, values, and time investment vary, please try to send something that would cost about $15-$20 at a country craft fair (i.e., not a gallery in NYC). So this would probably be about:
Added based on feedback in the posts below The above are just general guides, though. DO NOT send 2 simple sketches and expect that to count if they are not done really well!!! You should use your own judgement, and not just try to meet the quantities above. These are only rough estimates. Your partner should be able to answer yes to "Would I or someone else buy this for $15-$20 at a local craft fair". If the answer is obviously no, then don't expect to get a rating of 5. Remember, they don't have to LIKE it, but they should be able to easily agree that it could plausibly sell for $15-20.
Try to look at your partner's profile for colors, themes, etc. But, since this is to exhibit the best of your craft, deviating from this should be expected. If you do crocheting and knitting, and someone's profile says they dislike crocheting and knitting, then so be it - send the crocheted or knitted item.
Since there is a lot of time and effort in this swap, please only sign up if you have a 4.7 or higher, and no 1's within the past 3 months, and have been rated at least 3 times in real (not electronic) swaps.
This is the first swap I am trying to host, so please be patient. This is US only, but if there is interest, I will start an international one.
I may not be able to angel this if we have a lot of problems (I certainly hope not), but I will actively post in the forums and try to get an angel for anyone who needs one.
