Quick and easy rating wishlist Final - NEWBIES

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:Cloverst (contact)
Swap categories: Random Items  Challenges  Miscellaneous 
Number of people in swap:50
Last day to signup/drop:June 6, 2007
Date items must be sent by:June 20, 2007
Number of swap partners:1

I have a larger wishlist swap that is not open to newbies Here.

In order to help some of you newbies get rated so you can take part in that swap, I am hosting a few quick and easy wishlist swaps in preparation for the biggie :D

With a two week turn around you should be rated in time for when the big one starts if you take part in this one.

What to do:

Post in the discussion a wishlist of 5 items you would like to see in your mailbox (see description below).

When partners are assigned, check your partners wishlist and post one of their items to them.

Simple eh?

Important info:

Items on your wishlist should not be costly and should be items your partner may already own or be able to obtain from local shops. Remember certain things may not be available in certain countries so keep it vague ('a packet of candy' as apposed to a certain brand for example)

Please send unused items only though they may be items you already own. (part of a roll of unused ribbon is ok, used greetings cards are not, you get the drift :)

Open to both newbies with FULL profile and those with ratings above 4.5.

Partners are assigned after the sign up date has passed. Please allow me 24 hours after that date to check through everyone. That is assuming you'd rather I did that than risk you getting a partner who doesn't send ;)

Just a note to those who watch the participant list, I ban after signup to stop them re-joining :)


Cloverst 06/ 1/2007 #

Please make sure you read the swap description fully.

The last swap I did like this I spent 3 hours individually messaging people who had not followed the requests. I will not do that this time I shall just remove people on the premise that if you cannot follow the swap description , you shouldn't be swapping.

Full profiles, items available locally internationally only.

Please do not just put 'see my profile' that isn't what this swap if for.

Other than that, Happy swapping :)

Cloverst 06/ 1/2007 #

Here's My 5 things for my partner:

  • one of those brush markers you can use with stamps
  • A sharpie in a colour other than the ones listed in my profile
  • Black lace (ooer!)
  • Anything to do with a mythical creature
  • One of those small gold ink pads

Thank you for being a great partner :)

Cloverst 06/ 1/2007 #

Note to international partners. This swap is designed to help you get rated in time for the larger wishlist swap. If you are wanting to take part in that swap and are unrated, you will need to send your items asap in order to allow for international mail.

looked like a quickie to get me started again. Here are 5 things, any one of which I'd love to receive in my mailbox :)

A knitting or crochet pattern for something other than clothes - household items,

toys, accessories. Weird and/or vintage will get you a heart!

Pretty papers or interesting scraps of paper, cutouts, cliparts etc

If you happen to have one you are no longer bothered about.. A copy of K1, Interweave

Knits or other recent (non-UK!) knitting magazine. I'll post a list on my profile later on today of the ones I already have.

Something handmade by you

Just a mess of stuff from your crafty cast-offs that you're not going to use, beads,

buttons, scraps, ribbons, anything!
