Here are the houses I have so far:

This one was made by aluraceleste.  The mixed-media on it is fab.




This one was made by cmarion3.  It practically makes its own neighborhood.




This one was made by cackle.  Check out all the tiny details.




This one was made by SonjaBoo.  I have the same paper that was used for the doors and windows.  Check out the witch on back.





Thank you, ladies!  They are up on my mantle.

I received both of my OTTs!


From cadet120433:

It's a sweet little party skeleton!  He's holding a toad and his hat is embroidered.  My son really liked him.



From mandymo13:

It's a collage!  It's made out of four separate tiny canvases that have been stuck together.  There's a toad wearing a witch hat, a skull and crossbones, a tombstone and bat, and Trick or Treat.



Thank you both for my OTTs!  I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.

In this swap, participants will be put into groups of 3. You may join up to 2 groups.  Participants will make and send out one house to each person in the group.

Houses should measure between 3" to 4" wide and no taller than 7". Decorate them front and back with emphasis on embellishment.  Please sign the back with your name or craftster handle and date.  You want everyone to remember that great little house you made.

Please use a base material such as paperboard, matboard, wood, layered cardstock or foam core. It needs to stand without flopping over so you can have a whole chunky neighborhood.

Please send your house in a small padded envelope or sandwiched between cardboard.  Write "DO NOT BEND" on both sides of your package. We want that artwork that you spent so much time creating to get to its new home in good shape.

- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- 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.

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.  The tiny thing should fit within four square inches. If you need a couple inches wiggle room, that is okay.  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.

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.

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 at least once
-take a photo of your item before you send (so you can post in the gallery if your partner can't)

Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings     = tiny  Smiley  
      jewelry set     = Not tiny
artist trading card  = tiny  Smiley
      8x10 drawing = Not tiny
small change purse  = tiny  Smiley
      clutch purse    = Not tiny

Bottom line:    4"x4" dimensions      
      If the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings or stitch markers), that is okay.
      If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

Here is my house from goatgoddess.  C-H-U-N-K-Y! (yet funky)
It's really lightweight and has an interesting texture.  It came with a fake tealight to put inside and light up the windows.  For some reason my camera wouldn't cooperate with capturing the glowing effect.



Thank you, goatgoddess!

Here is the OTT that I received from coconutbells.  It's a tiny painting with a crochet frame!  There is a tiny flapper girl sitting beneath a tree AND she has a toad in her hand!  It's very beautiful and very tiny.





Thank you coconutbells, I love it! Kiss
