This is PART ONE of what will be TWO swaps! If you sign up for the first, please make sure to sign up for the second one, too! I will only allow those that have participated in the first swap to join the second swap. I am keeping this in-group to keep things simple, but if you know someone who wants to join in this one, they are more than welcome to join this group.
The idea for this swap came from seeing several "crafty challenge" type things going on in some of the communities I belong to - basically, everyone gets a set of surprise crafty supplies and has to come up with something using most or all of the items. The most popular of these that I've seen is the Christy Nelson Craft Challenge, where everyone purchases the same package of items that she assembles monthly and then posts pictures of their items to be voted on in a contest.
We'll be doing things a bit differently, however. For the first part of the swap, you'll be assembling the package of secret goodies for your partner to use in their series of 3 ATC's. It's a bit of a scavenger hunt - see below for the list. For the second swap, you will use the supplies you have received to create a series of three (3) ATC's to send on to a new partner. You may also post a picture of your ATC's before you mail them to the group's Flickr group and be entered to win a (as yet undecided) prize. I will post details on the contest after the second swap has started (after the signup date).
So, here we are - what you need to assemble for the first swap. Everything should be able to fit inside a standard business size envelope (about 4in by 9in) - remember, these will be used in ATC's, so think small!
Pick 10 of the following items and also include a note to your partner about the items you chose:
There - that seems like enough to choose from. OK, so pick 10, put them in a business size envelope, add a note telling your partner what you picked, and send it. Then go join the second swap.
This swap is open to everyone in the group, but please be mindful of your partner and don't flake. If I have problems with you during this swap, I will ban you from my future swaps. Keep in mind - this swap is required for the second swap! If you have not received your package by the time the signup closes on the second swap, please message me and I will get a package together for you.
Also, please don't be a jerk. Don't make this intentionally hard for your partner, choosing things that are in awful condition or pieces that are too small to use. I have specified minimum sizes on some items to discourage this.
