13 Days of Halloween Swap
Group:Halloween Spooktactular
Swap Coordinator:dolphingirl (contact)
Swap categories: Themed 
Number of people in swap:10
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Rating requirement:4.85
Last day to signup/drop:August 15, 2011
Date items must be sent by:October 3, 2011
Number of swap partners:1

Fill a package with 13 small, wrapped gifts (handmade is preferred although store bought or a mix of both is fine). Your partner will open a gift (starting October 19) a day leading up to Halloween! You can number the gifts 1 through 13, or leave it a random luck of the draw, but please make sure the gift to be opened on Halloween is special and identified as "Halloween day."

$15-$20 on the entire swap would be fair although you could make most of the items and save money. Usually with a swap like this I try to spend $1-$2 on the days leading up to the big day then $5 on the last day but some days you might spend more than that and some days less but to average it out $15-$20 seems fair.

As for food items I think that a mix of food treats and non food would be perfectly fine. I usually look at my partners profile for an idea of what candys they like. On a swap like this I might do 1/3 candy and food treats and 2/3 non food items. I usually try to send a mix of items so that hopefully if they don't care for one or two items they still get a ton of things they like.

Ideas for your package Halloween decorations, halloween jewelry, Halloween craft items (beads, buttons, paper punches, rubber stamps, stickers, etc...) socks, gloves, leg warmers, wrist warmers, Nightmare Before Xmas Items, Pin back buttons, scrapbook stuff, Martha Stewart Halloween items, black orange or purple candles, ribbons, candy treats, stationary, cookie cutters, bento items that fit the theme, books (used books that fit the theme are a wonderful gift!) books on true ghost stories from your area.

Because this is a big effort swap, I have to set some big rules:

You must have been rated in 15 swaps. No history of no sends. A rating above 4.85, and have a complete profile. You must also have signed into swap bot within a week of the last day to sign up.. I am sorry to have to be so picky but I would really love everyone to get a package for it!

This swap is international :)

This is always one of my all time favorite swaps. I love the 12 smaller presents and one bigger one. No matter how bad of a day you have it is always fun to come home to a present to open! It is also a lot of fun to look for unusual halloween items for this swap!

Oh Pandessa I am so envious of you, I love crocheted stuff and Halloween crocheted is even better. I so envy people that can crochet or knit or sew as I can;t do a lick of it!.

isn't this the same swap that is running in paranormal activities group right now? (im in it so you can find it on my profile)

this is a very similar swap to the one in paranormal activities I have done this swap for several years and started doing shortly after I joined Swap-bot modeling it after the similar 24 days of Christmas swaps that start up for Christmas. I love doing this swap every year and find it a really fun way to get into the holiday spirit.
