Thanks to GF dmarie for lending her international swap idea for a USA version. 

For this swap, send your U.S. partner 5 handcrafted items in a sandwich-size Ziploc/equivalent (larger bag ok). Value approximately $5-$7 total, before postage.

  • Sender’s choice, but check your partner’s profile for dislikes.

  • At least 3 items to be crafted by you (1-2 items from other crafters allowed). Make all 5 or mix it up. Show your best work.

  • For variety, send items of at least 2 different media (paper, fabric, metal, wood, bead, yarn, clay, etc.). For example, don't send all paper items.

  • Items to be in new -- or like new/unused condition.

This is all about indie handmade (think Etsy), so no factory-made crafts. As usual, send something you’d be proud to deliver in person!

☆ I review profiles and will ban as necessary to help ensure a safe, fun swap. This includes checking ratings and current swaps, among other things. (If sending swaps late or bashing people in your profile is your thing, please don’t sign up.) ⚘

I’m happy to angel if you’re flaked on; simply let me know after you attempt resolution with your partner but ultimately rate them a 1.

Just to clarify, you certainly MAY use factory-made items in your own creations. Any questions, please PM me or leave a message here. :-)
