Additional Age requirement? 18+


Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: CORRECT
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Details of Swap:
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.

Since this is a paper craft swap, DC numbers and mailing receipt copies are not required.  HOWEVER, if for some reason your chunky house does not arrive at its destination you will be required to re-send.  

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.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.

-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!

- 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: 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 (even though it is Nov 2nd), 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 your partner and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM your partner 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?
4" tall stuffie  = tiny  Smiley
      14" tall stuffie = 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!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 3 Halloween Swaps: OTT, Chunky, Inchie on: August 19, 2016 01:46:15 PM
Last year I had the start date for the OTT and the Chunky as August 25th.  This year I'm starting on or around Sept 1st.  I won't be in town for the rest of August.  There was also some discussion last year about starting the Inchie House swap earlier this year.  I could start all three at the same time.  What do y'all think?
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cuckoo Clock Geocache on: January 12, 2016 04:53:12 PM
I made this cuckoo clock!  It's actually a geocache inside of a library.  GC698G8

I obtained some of the materials from Michaels such as the box, the fancy frame, the "clock" part, the leaves, and the bird at the top.  The wooden parts were either painted or covered with some fun scrapbooking paper.  I needlefelted the cuckoo with some wool roving that was swapped from this site!  There are additional tiny birdhouses that are hidden throughout the library that are painted and papered, but this one is my baby.
