Oh this matching thing is kind of hard  Undecided.

I've screened out the obvious mismatches based on allergies, country of origin, and shipping preference, but now it gets more complicated....

My crew...

One basset hound, one redbone coonhound service dog, one bully mix, and two cats (the one not pictured is orange).







Regarding my bully mix, named Mulch Diggums (aka of Artemis Fowl fame), he is a robust dog with the daintiest (and most painful) PAWS that seem to be "bollocks" seeking missiles. So, for father's day, Mulch is giving dad a Mulch Protector (i.e., "nut cup"). I made the label and it turned out awesome! Hehehehehe.



Welcome aboard everyone!

Limited to a certain number of people? 12
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Open to FIRST TIME swappers? NO

If you have, or have had, a pet that has changed your life, than this is the swap for you! Join this swap to celebrate a current beloved pet or to honor a deceased beloved pet.

Details of Swap:

You will be crafting for the SWAPPER, not the pet. You can make any sort of pet-themed items you think your partner would like related to the particular pet they've asked you to focus on. You will be required to SEND A PICTURE of the pet you'd like your partner to focus on WITH THE SWAP QUESTIONNAIRE. If you have more than one pet, or would like to share more pictures, those kinds of discussions should occur with your partner, once assigned.

Any type of crafting will work for this, so you can sew, paint, knit, crochet, get crafty with paper or polymer clay, etc, as long as you make something your partner will like, based on her pet, questionnaire, and pinterest, wists, etc.

Some ideas of what to make/purchase might include:

Drawings/paintings, hoopla, small models of purebred pets, jewelry, pouches, purses, pincushions, pillows, plush pet, keychain, coasters, mugs, placemats, appliques, t-shirts, polymer clay figurines, felted pets, etc. etc. etc.

This swap will be for ONE MEDIUM and TWO SMALL items (or the equivalent thereof; i.e., one large, or two mediums, or four smalls).

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = One single necklace or bracelet, a scarf, a pouch
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

*PLEASE READ THIS!*

- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.

17. You MAY include something for your partner's pet(s) as well, but that is totally optional.

18. BE SURE TO ATTACH A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE PET TO THE PM WITH THIS QUESTIONNAIRE. (If you have more than one picture, or more than one favorite pet, please coordinate that with your partner.

You will not be admitted to this swap UNLESS your questionnaire contains the required picture! NOTE: I guess you can't attach a picture to a private message. Either send me a link to the picture (preferred), or leave me a note and I'll give you my email address and you can email it to me separately.

TO PARTICIPATE, DO NOT REPLY HERE. SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE TO ORGANIZER CHRMISHA (click here to send her a message) .
