This swap will be holiday themed and will include Halloween and Christmas- Disney or everyday depending on your partners preferences. We will be doing an altered item. You can choose your project- paintcan, frames, message board, apron, sign, candy bowl etc. Sign ups will be August 27-29. Then I will partner everyone up and post the first challenge Friday August 31. The swap will run until October 19th. We will also have a kid group if there is interest. YOUR PACKAGE WILL NEED TO BE POSTAL NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 24th!. This is going to be a rock hard date. Please make sure you send your package with delivery confirmation, you will also need to PM me that number. If you cannot adhere to the shipping guidelines I will ask that you refrain from swapping with us. A lot of time and effort goes into these and its always a shame when someone doesn't receive their package. Also if you havent been able to be on time in recent swaps or I feel that you have too much on your swap plate, I will ask you to not sign up. A lot of time, energy, creativity and money go into this type of swap and it just is not fair to your partner. Sorry to be so mean about it. You will also need to check in with your partner at least once per week on the thread. And check in with me every Friday for the new challenge. You will complete the challenges and put them in an envelope . I may have to do some research to find some really new stuff. These will consist of things like titles, journal boxes, decorated squares, etc. All things that you can use in your albums! You can use carts, stamps, clip art. What ever you desire. As long as it looks good. We will go by our normal swapping guidelines for embellishment. You are also allowed to add in extra goodies if you want. We'll keep it to a $10 maximum for store bought but you can always add more handmade if you want. We will need an even number of people, since this will be a partner swap. We will have a questionarie to fill out so that you can get to know your partner. You will send to them and they will send to you. I encourage you to openly chat on the thread, pm, email, text, phone. Go ahead make a new friend. Please do not sign up for this swap if you can not make the deadline. Thanks!!! I will limit this swap to Veteran Swappers and Swappers that are in good standing with our Swap Boards meaning that you have sent your groups in on time and your quality has been up to par. I will be checking in with the swap goddess A LOT of time, money and talent goes into a swap like this. If you are a newbie and interested we will do another swap similar later in the year and after you have completed 2-3 other swaps with us on time I will be more than happy to have you. Here is the thread from our Paint Can Swap: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2856202 You can take pics of your projects as you go or at the end. But please do not post them on the thread, part of the fun is the surprise that you get at the end. However I would like you to post pics of the can you receive and post them on the thread for us all to admire.
