Number of people in swap:17

Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Rating requirement:4.90
Last day to signup/drop:October 15, 2010
Date items must be sent by:November 19, 2010
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap you will make 4 handcrafted presents for your partner.

Make things inspired by the Christmas season. This is NOT an ornament swap, so please don’t send more than one ornament. There are so many other things to make: holiday journals, jewelry, stationary sets, crocheted dishcloth sets, hand-carved stamp sets, matchboxes (overflowing with goodies), ceramics, polymer clay creations, tote bags, zipper bags, stuffies, dolls, and handmade cards (4 would equal 1 item). The ideas are endless. This swap is Sender's Choice.

Wrap the items nicely so they will look great under the tree!

Quality crafting only - NO flimsy items thrown together at the last minute! Make things that you would love to receive and that you are proud to send. There is plenty of time to craft between the sign-up and the send by date.

Though it is hard to set a value on handmade items, try to keep it at items you could sell at a craft fair or on Etsy for at least $20. This isn't as high dollar as it sounds, because you are crafting the items, not purchasing them at retail.

Guidelines: Must have been rated for 10 separate snail mail swaps, 4.8 rating or higher, all unresolved 1's or 3's will be closely reviewed. Known non-raters may also be banned. I will ban anyone that I feel might not be able to fulfill the swap requirements.

Make sure your profile is WELL filled out. Just in case your partner wants to send a profile based item.

(This swap inspired by the Holly Jolly Handmade Christmas swap hosted last year by @thriftymermaid unfortunately she isn’t active on Swap-bot at this time.)

It is Sender's Choice @mizvicky but it is always a good idea to check for allergies, etc. :)

Oh how I would love to join this. I wish some people I've sent my packages to would go ahead and rate! One in particular has had an ami in her mailbox for a week now!

I'm an impatient little sucker, aren't I?

missstamper 10/11/2010 #

LOL @Amigirl for being impatient. I will keep my eyes open for someone willing to do a private swap with you if you don't meet the criteria for this group swap.
