A Cabinet of Curiosities is described by Wikipedia as:
"... encyclopedic collections of objects whose categorical boundaries were, in Renaissance Europe, yet to be defined. Modern terminology would categorize the objects included as belonging to natural history (sometimes faked), geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings), and antiquities."

This swap is for two items. One medium and one small. You DO NOT need to have an actual cabinet to participate in this swap, and we are NOT swapping for an entire cabinet. This is for the the little interesting bits that one might find inside. Your interests don't need to be bizarre or disturbing to be a part of this swap. You could be into real preserved insect and animal parts as comfortably as someone else might want a little paper butterfly collection.
If you do have a cabinet that you would like something for please include the measurements of one of the compartments you would like filled. This is why this is a two-item swap. If you provide measurements your partner must craft at least one item for the dimensions you provide. For the second item your partner has the freedom to make something else that doesn't have to adhere to that size. Perhaps something for a shelf or your wall. If you would like to craft both items to fit your partner's cabinet it is your responsibility to contact them for the size of another opening (as some shelves contain different-sized spaces).
Swap size guidelines:
This swap will be for 1 Medium and 1 small. If measurements are provided by your partner you are required to make at least one item to fit those dimensions.No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, PLEASE DON'T SIGN UP.
If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let me know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once before the swap begins.
Tracking (formerly called delivery confirmation) is required within the U.S., please send the tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Please keep you mailing receipt if you are sending internationally.PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.
Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures of everything you send just in case.
*Although posting pictures is not a requirement to receive positive feedback.*
