Sign-ups close: closed
Pals & project assignments out: June 1st
Projects mailed: July16-July 25th & recd by August 1st
Hosted by: Tigergenesis and Valechula

Round 1 went so well we thought we’d give it another try and go for a round 2!

This is a fun little twist on a secret pal swap. It's a great chance to try some new projects and techniques that you might not otherwise venture out to try. All interested swappers will be randomly divided into one of two teams. One team will be lead by Tigergenesis and the other by Valechula. Each person will be assigned a secret pal from the other team. Each team leader will come up with an altered item project that her team must make for their secret pal on the other team. Everyone on the same team will have the same assignment, but each team will be making something different. Team leaders will collaborate to make sure the items each team makes are comparable with regards to price/time (as best as possible). So basically not only will you not know who your secret pal is, but you also won’t know what you will receive from them. Double surprise! You are more than welcome to further spoil your partner with additional homemade items, scrapbooking goodies or treats – but these not required.

Each swapper will complete a survey and pm it to Valechula. On June 1st
we will update this post and list the teams and their members. On this date you will receive a pm from your team leader telling you who your secret pal from the other team is, what you are to make for them and any applicable instructions. Each team also be given a secret login code for the forum. You can use this login to post in the swap thread if you want to ask questions of your secret pal or tease them about what you’re making them – without revealing your identity.

Because you won’t know who is or isn’t on your team ahead of time – we will not be able to take partner requests.

You will be given a month and a half to complete your project. Everyone then must mail their item to their partner during the designated mailing period – no sooner and no later. This is so that hopefully everyone will receive their items about the same time and not spoil the secret as to what you will receive.

You must post each week to check in, when you are postal and when you have received your surprise . Each team leader will keep track of her team members and make sure they are checking in regularly. FLAKERS NEED NOT APPLY!

If you have less than 200 posts and have not swapped with either of the hostess’ before, you may still sign up under the below conditions:
*You make a post introducing yourself to everyone so that we may get to know you better.
*You must check in at least twice a week.
*Your item must be received by your partner no later than July 9th
If these conditions are not met you will be removed from the swap under Flaker status.


Mailing
Items must be packaged well.
It is a good idea (but not required) to purchase a DC# for your package. If you do you can post the number for all to see and further add to the mystery of who your partner is.
Be sure to include your screen name and the swap name somewhere on or in the package
All items must be mailed between July 16th and July 25th.
All packages must be received by August 1st

It would be great if everyone would take a picture of their creation to post after their partner receives it – to share with the rest of us. Quality work only!

To sign-up, post that you are interested and then pm the following survey to Valechula. The more info you can provide the better! Even if you were in the last round you must complete and pm the survey to Val
