Harry Potter Swap?
Heyy, swap buddies! I JUUUST missed the Halloween 2010 swap, and I loved Jeanette's idea of a Harry Potter swap. Halloween and the release of the first Harry Potter 7 movie are coming up, so who is interested??? :-D
Some basic ground rules:
*Must have completed at least one swap successfully (this initial swap must be "completed," not "in progress").
*You must have 3 or more projects posted in your profile.
*Please keep in contact with your swap buddy--half the fun of swapping is making a new friend!
*If your swap buddy feels that you have "gone MIA," and cannot successfully contact you, they are to contact me. If we cannot locate you within a week, you risk being kicked out of the swap, and your swapping buddy will be paired with someone else.
I hope I'm not being too strict... I just think that the worst thing in the world would be getting flaked on during a fantastic Harry Potter swap! I promise, though, that I am a nice person, and you don't have to be scared of joining my swappie! :-P
Now, for those of you who are interested, please let us know the following:
*Your name on CO&K
*Willing to post outside of your country or not?
*Your Hogwarts house
*What you would love to receive in your package
*What you would prefer not to be sent in your package
*For inspiration--your favorite "canon" merch
*Anything else you think we should know! :-D
Let us know! I hope this isn't a failure; it's my first swap. :-P
I will go first:
my name: *Rachie Pin-Up*/*Rachie Homemaker*
my country: Israel
I am willing to post outside of Israel, but would prefer to keep it inside the European/Asian continents. ;)
I am a Gryffindor! (If anyone needs help being sorted, lmk and I will hook you up with a >GOOD< sorting hat quiz)
Since it's close to Halloween, I would love Halloween or Christmas-related HP items. I prefer items that look like they would be at home in the books to fan items, but fan items can be fun, too.
I'm not a fan of "Kawaii" in general--also not a fan of horror-related thingies. I'm a realist, I suppose--not too cutesie and not too gory.
I love anything that can be construed as canon! My fave candy is Bertie Botts, and I would love to explore the potion/ingredient and fortune telling shops in Diagon Alley.
I also... kind of am jealous of Ginny Weasely. xD She has red hair, and I don't. :-D
I'm interested in joining, but want to know what house I belong to first, before filling out the questions. I've taken quizzes in the past, but I don't feel like they were good ones.
Rachie, can you hook me up with a good sorting hat quiz? Thanks
boo, I really want to but have no monies for it
Aww, that is soo sad! I hate it when ppl can't join swaps solely for monetary reasons. I sowwee, Michelle.
Jeanette, are you interested in a "decent" one with more than 3 questions (fave color, animal, and hp character), or like, a seriously in-depth personality analysis with a bunch of questions (that i took because im absolutely obsessive....)?
Let me know and I'll put the link up. Perhaps it's for the best, anyway, that there is a link, for future unhoused Hogwartsians. ;)
I took one and am hufflepuff! woot, I love em
actually, I am going to squeeze this in
*Your name on CO&K - Michelle G
*Willing to post outside of your country or not? yes
*Your Hogwarts house -HUFFLEPUFF
*What you would love to receive in your package -whatever you make will be great-maybe a scarf in HUFFLEPUFF colours
*What you would prefer not to be sent in your package -jewelry, I don't wear any
*For inspiration--your favorite "canon" merch any HUFFLEPUFF item, like the crest, the colour, the BADGER, Nymphadora Tonks is my hero
This swap seems like it would be awsome, as i used to be a huge fan of the books. But around what date would the send out date be?
Rachie, how about a link to the seriously in-depth personality analysis with a bunch of questions, I've taken the 3 questions ones before.
Okay! I'll work on finding that now. I loved taking it; it seemed more like what the Sorting Hat would take into account.
Michelle--hoorayy that you are doing it! I can try and get you someone stateside, if possible.
I'm pretty open to a send-out date; what does everyone else think? I want to give us all enough time, but still send out soon enough to get things in time for Halloween. Does everyone think that October 10 would be a good send-out date, or should we do it a bit sooner to ensure that we ALL get our items in time for Halloween? I only ask because international shipping can be such a bore. :-P
Going to find the link to a really good Sorting Hat quiz; I'll be posting again soon!
Okay, here is the one I took, or one similar enough that it will yield good results: http://www.personalitylab.org/tests/ccq_hogwarts.htm
I don't think you have to fill in the questionnaire at the end if it makes you uncomfortable.
Again, here is an IN-DEPTH SORTING HAT QUIZ: http://www.personalitylab.org/tests/ccq_hogwarts.htm
sOOO EXCITED!!! :-D
Oct 10th sounds good, but you may want to make it Oct 11th, so that it's not on a Sunday.
your name on CO&K: Jeanette
*Willing to post outside of your country or not? Yes
*Your Hogwarts house: Hufflepuff
*What you would love to receive in your package: Anything. I'm not really picky, I like surprises.
*What you would prefer not to be sent in your package: Again, I'm pretty open. As long as it is not alive or once been alive I'm sure I'll love it.
*For inspiration--your favorite "canon" merch
*Anything else you think we should know! :-D : I really like the magic part of Harry Potter and all the mythical creatures. I also love earrings.
when would partners be posted? I am eager to make stuff
I'm waiting to see if anyone else is interested in joining--to be honest, I thought more people would be interested, considering it's close to Halloween and the 7A (lol) movie. Maybe I'll go scout some more people out, if that's allowed. :-P
Also, I didn't think about it being a Sunday--Sunday is a business day over here, so I guess I kind of forgot! Sorry! We can make the send-out date the 11th.
Anyway, we are looking for at least one more person so we can have an even number. :-P Feel free to scout some people! I have someone in mind, so I hope she is interested/able.
Also, if you want or know someone who would like to join but doesn't meet requirements for whatever reason, let me know and we will see if something can be sorted out (can be vouched for, has swapped/been active on other craft sites, etc).
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
