This is what I got from psyche. Cool Gerbil ornaments! She used pictures from my pinterest. They are in a plastic bubble of sorts. I have no clue on she made them but they will look great on the tree! Got them Christmas Eve. I needed the perk up from getting over a little bug.

Look at all the goodies my partner and daughter made for my gerbils and me.



Homemade gerbil treats!! Gerbils love them. Her daughter made me these wonderful cozies, hammocks and play tunnel for the kids. Toys from the store. These are good toys for gerbils. The tile coasters are homemade. Those are so cool. The necklace is paper mache. Love it. Did I mention I like necklaces.  Grin Also....she made made some handmade soap. So cool. I know I said cool way too many times but everything is great. You did a great job crafting for gerbils. I just adopted a new hamster from our local APL today. The treats and toys will work great for the hamster also. His name is Charlie.

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October (Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.)! Your five themes should be related to these.

In this swap, participants will have one partner.  Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes.  For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament.  Each tiny thing should measure 4 inches by 4 inches or smaller.  This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.

AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know.  I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partners to have them post)

Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings=tiny ---- necklace, earrings and bracelet set=NOT tiny
ATC=tiny ---  8x10 drawing=NOT tiny
change purse=tiny --- clutch purse=NOT tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions; if the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay. If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

OTT Halloween Edition 2
OTT Halloween Edition 3

My angel came through. She spoiled me and my gerbils rotten. I like everything that was sent. The simple wooden toys are great. The gerbils will love them. The clothespins are so cute! The gerbils will have fun chewing those up. the initials are the first letter of some of my gerbils names. The fabric cozy and tunnels are so cool. Gerbils will like those also. The treat bars will be put to good use.  My angel must have looked on my pininterest. I always wanted some of those fabric sanitary pads. The big paw printed play cowl is cool. The gerbils love to run around and play on me and this would be a cool toy for them to run in and out of. I already tried it on one of my boys. He likes to play his "bonk bonk" game. The homemade gerbil stamp is so cool too!!

Leigh told me that her young daughter helped with the wooden toys. Tell her the gerbils love them. Simple wooden toys are the best for gerbils next to tp rolls.

Details of swap:
This swap is all about our furry, feathered, or scaly friends. You can send pet related items or items for the pets themselves, or a combination of both. You can decorate food/water bowls, collars, make clothes, beds, toys, bags, etc. All pets are welcome. For collars, especially for cats, please buy and then decorate a collar. Use your best judgment when giving any pet a toy. Remember to always supervise pets when theyre playing with toys. Anything can become a choking hazard. Communication is key to this swap. Talk with your partner.  Please talk with your partner often. This is swap will be a little over a month. Plenty of time to craft.

This is usually a 5 point swap but I am going to leave it open and let the partners decide on how much they want to send each other. All pets swaps have been known to spoil. That is why I am leaving the size of the swap to you.

I reserve the right to refuse people based on shaky past feedback. We will start the swap once I get either 24 people or the due date.
