To be in your partners hands: No later than 27th March
Amount of gifts: 1 x ATC, 1 x Handmade Gift, Chocolate Gift
Withdrawing: No Withdrawing
Participants: Unlimited.
Sign up Date: 1st March
Minimum itrader: +15 with no negs or neutrals

Participants for this swap must have a minimum itrader of 15 with no neutral or negative feedback. I will assign partners as each person signs up. Make sure you have themes listed in your profile to give your partner some idea what to make. You will be making 1 x ATC, 1 x Handmade Gift and you will also be sending a chocolate gift. Please try to match your gifts to you partners likes. Remember we are all at different levels of experience so you may be partnered with someone of a lower of higher experience level than yourself. There will be no withdrawing from this swap so please do not join if you cannot commit. If you have time you may sign up to a maximum of 3 times but only once at least 3 people have signed up after your other sign up. You must be willing to post international and on time. Your gift total should be no more than 15 ($30) approx. Your gifts should be wrapped. You will be notified of your partner as soon as someone else signs up after you. If the last person who signs up by the sign up by date does not have a partner then I will partner them.

Make sure you include you details on your ATC with a minimum of username, real name and country.

Make sure you gifts are packaged properly with padding if needed or in an appropriate size box. Fill out a customs label and make sure the recipients name and address is clearly written and your return address is on the package. Please post your item at the post office and obtain a certificate of posting if available). PM your partner for their address.

Some suggestions for handmade gifts:
Altered CD
Domino Art
Journal
Jewellery (If making earrings please enquire if you partner can wear pierced earrings)
Painting
Handmade stuffie
etc
The gift does not need to be an Easter theme but it can be if you wish.

ATCs can be of any medium but please try to match the theme to something your partner likes.

Don't forget to include chocolate. Easter eggs may be difficult to post so it is probably wise to send something that is easier to package. When you sign up please list your chocolate likes and dislikes.

Important rules:
1. No withdrawing
2. You may sign up a maximum of 3 times.
3. You must have an itrader of 15+ with no negatives or neutrals.
4. You must be willing to commit to this swap and make sure that your partner receives their gift by 27th March (I encourage people to leave neutral or negative itrader if your gifts arrive late or not sent). It's not fair on your partner if you do not mail a gift.
5. This should be your best work within your ability. Please make sure any items that are glued are glued on properly.
6. Gifts should total a value of no more than 15 ($30) approx
7. You must be willing to post internationally.
8. You must send the correct number of gifts (1 x ATC, 1 x Handmade Gift, 1 x chocolate item/s).
9. You must inform your partner and the host (me), when your gift has been mailed. You must inform your partner and the host (me) when your gift has arrived. Please inform partners by pm and also in the thread.
10. Any problems please communicate with your partner and myself.

itrader
You will not be leaving itrader for me but you should leave itrader for the person who sends their gift to you. Please be honest with itrader. Positive - If the gift arrives on time. Neutral - If the gift was sent late, no communication. Negative - If the gift was not sent. Please try to resolve the situation before leaving a negative itrader.

Try not to open your gift before Easter

When you have opened your gifts could you please post pics of the gifts and ATC on this thread. If you don't have the equipment then not to worry.

Have fun.

Its weird how we go through these phases. I have lots of ideas right now but seem to lack the oomph to get on them! I am blaming it on the darned snow. It can go away now thank you , enough is enough.

I do have a plan though for my gift!! The computer and I found the disc I need after about 4 hours, which taught me I really do need to keep track of my digital stitching designs!!! never mind put them in a safe place and the SAME place!!!!

The force is against me Kati LOL I've had to cancel as I woke at 3am being sick. Steve phoned a little while ago to cancel for me and after he mentioned that I might be allergic to the tablets I have to take before the angiogram. I looked at the leaflet and sure enough, vomiting, nausea and dizziness are but a few of the many side effects. I'm going to speak to someone when I feel better and see if there is anything else I can take. This is now I think the 5th time i've had to cancel.

My package from mrubyjean arrived. What a talented and generous soul our dear Martha is! TWO absolutely BEAUTIFUL bracelets! Three kinds of yummy chocolate! And a wonderful ATC enclosed in a handmade card. Everything wrapped up sweetly. What an indulgent treat! :notworthy: Thank you, Martha!

..And my package should be in her hands within a couple of days. :)

It does seem a little long but i've had stuff take weeks before. JAD sent me a package and it took over 3mths to arrive. Let's hope yours is not one of those.

Good morning ladies... my lovely parcel arrived...so many special things...I received a sweet little book called "Remember This", a hand-made journal book that when opened up makes into a star...so much work involved in creating this little gem; I also have a beautiful humming-bird chunky and a one-of-a-kind alteryourworld atc. Besides all the above, Ang made some fairy wings for my collages (I love fairies),and other collage materials, and did I forget to mention the THE CHOCOLATE...that's already been consumed. Yeah! Loved every bit of it!
