- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES

THE DETAILS
Time to finish up some pieces for your in-progress altered puzzles, or begin a new one!

For this swap, you repurpose or purchase a jigsaw puzzle (cardboard or wooden) and send two pieces to each of your partners.  You can choose the theme, or you can let your partners have an artists choice.  Totally up to you.

Ideally, we will be in groups of six, meaning you mail out and alter ten puzzle pieces.  (This is subject to change slightly, based on how many swappers sign up.)  If you prefer to be in more than one group, please let me know.

This is open to international partners. Willingness to ship internationally is required for this swap, given the small size of what were sending.  

PIECES MUST BE ENCLOSED IN CARDSTOCK OR A GREETING CARD.  If you think it needs to be hand cancelled, please write that on the envelope.  Personally, Ill probably be sending mine in mailers, because it just seems safest.  But use your judgement based on the size and thickness of the pieces your mailing.  Remember how difficult it is when a pieces goes missing (it is a puzzle, after all!) Thanks.

While waiting for partners, you should:

1. Buy or choose a puzzle.

2. Assemble and number the backside of EACH piece.

3. Decide if you want the pieces facing the same way or all over the place. Add arrows to backs of pieces to indicate which direction. (On the questionnaire, I will ask if your pieces are one direction or any direction).

4. Choose your theme or themes.

5. Prepare your pieces.  Some people just mail them as they are; others sand them a bit and add some gesso to make a clean slate.  Its up to you.  

6. You can write a letter to include with your pieces and make your wishes known - glitter or no glitter, 3-D or no 3-D, words or no words, whatever guidelines you have for your finished pieces. You can also say "Artist's choice with an ocean theme" or "Artist's Choice" - this means each partner will decorate/alter the pieces in his/her own way and you will have a puzzle with a random look.

7. Remember, you will send out your pieces to each partner for altering. It's a good idea to copy or trace pieces before sending out if anything goes missing.

- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: No DC is required because of the small and (usually) paper nature of inchies.  However, if you do not get a DC and the envelope does not arrive to its destination, you will be required to remake and resend.
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Inchies are tiny little works of art. They are exactly 1" by 1" and can be made of any medium.  For more information about inchies, see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0#axzz2oc24cKEm and for some inspiration, see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=tags;sa=showtopics;tag=inchie#axzz2oc24cKEm

For this swap, each participant will list between 4 and 8 themes that they would like to receive. We will be in groups of 6 so each participant will have 5 swap partners. We will make 8 inchies for each partner for a total of 40 inchies made.  WE WILL BE IN GROUPS OF 5, HAVE 4 SWAP PARTNERS, AND MAKE EACH PARTNER 10 INCHIES FOR A TOTAL OF 40 INCHIES.It's entirely up to you how you divide that 8 up by theme.  For example, if one of your partners lists 5 themes: pinup girls, boats, blue, trees, and clouds. You could make 8 inchies based on trees. Or you could make 4 pinup girl inchies and then 1 for each of the other themes. Or maybe you'd rather do 2 blue inchies, 2 boat inchies, 3 tree inchie, 1 cloud inchie, but no pinup girls inchies. Whatever you want!

When shipping your inchies, please take care to protect them. Have them enclosed in a notecard of some sort or an inside envelope. If they have a lot of texture or 3D material, please be aware that they may require more postage if they cannot go through the sorting machines. Check at the post office if you are concerned.

Participants must also be willing to re-send any lost packages in order to receive positive feedback at the end of the swap.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / inchie swap for 2014? on: November 09, 2013 01:19:50 PM
There hasn't been an inchie swap in a long time.
Is there interest in having one after the holidays?

I'd most prefer an Inchie My Theme, but we could do an Ongoing swap, or...something else?  I'm open for organizing (though, frankly, would hate organizing an ongoing swap because that's so much work.)

I missed this swap, but fell in love with the gallery:

Um...all I can do right now is picture building a Christmas inchie village.
Anyone else?

I could organize (and I could also feel totally great letting someone else organize.)
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fruit-themed altered puzzle on: July 12, 2012 11:22:40 AM
After lots of swapping, my fruit themed altered puzzle is finally finished up.
I was really bad at keeping track of who sent what...so I'm not going to credit all the wonderful people by name who contributed to the pieces... Sad  But I am super grateful!
