3/16/11--EDITED TO CHANGE SWAP TYPE FROM 2 TO 3 Type 2: Flat mail - postcards, letters, mail swaps with little, to no, craft component. Type 3: Crafts & Packages - any time-intensive craft swaps, any swaps sent in packages, most swaps will fall in this category.
If you have patiently waited for your partner to send, but have receive nothing, check the Participants list for their name and see if they have clicked sent, if they have, PM them to ask about it, and if you receive no message, and no pictures, then rate your partner with a 1 (and an offer to change if you receive if you like) and then PM me and I will add you to the list of flaked folks--a small list, but I want to be sure everyone gets pictures. No one will be angeled unless they rate their no-send partner a 1.
Summertime is great for pictures! I did this photoscavenger hunt a couple of years ago, and someone asked for it again, so...
Here are the details:
--Take pictures of at least 15 things from this list of 30 ideas (you can send as many more than 15 that you feel like doing):
11.End of the line
18.A lot of something
23.Road less traveled
24.Up in the sky
27.Walk 5 minutes from your house and shoot!
30.From your front door
--Use whatever camera you have and are comfortable with, digital or film
--Print them in whatever way you are used to doing, either from your home printer or commercially, 4"x6" would be a nice size
--be creative--photoshop them if you are so inclined, or not (this means 'digitally manipulate the images' using Photoshop or some other application)
--mail them to your partner
If you print them on your home printer, be sure they are completely dry before stacking them. You can put them in a small inexpensive photo album if you like. You can print them on glossy or matte photo paper or heavy cardstock, whatever your artistic needs demand. It's also nice to mount them on black acid-free paper with corners. Be creative and thoughtful of your partner, you could e-mail them and ask if they'd like an album or mounting or just in an envelope.
Just so everyone understands:
By default the pictures should be mailed via the post office.
E-mailing is only an optional method of sending the pictures--if specifically requested.
The sizes are sender's choice, but no smaller than a business card (2" x 3"), unless you arrange it with your receiving partner.
Color, B&W, any artistic aspects--sender's choice
Communication with your partner is important if there is any possibility your package will take a long time to arrive there.
Newbies are welcome if they write me and show that they understand the importance of fulfilling their swap. Everyone deserves a first chance but no one is happy when they get burned!
I was apparently flaked on in the first of these scavenger hunts--I'd really like to actually get some pictures this time! :(
This is an international swap!
No recent No-sends (in the last 6 mos) Swap-bot newbies are welcome if you have a well-filled out profile and are committed to fulfilling your swaps! Others-minimum 4.9 rating required. We all want to get something back when we work hard to mail a nice package out!
Let's have a fun swap!
