(taken from the original Jim Henson swap & round 2)
This Swap is to celebrate Jim Henson, so it can include anything he was involved in. When we hear the name Jim Henson, the first things that come to mind are Muppets and monsters; however, Jim was also involved in creating some wonderful fantasy worlds where Fraggles danced their cares away, Gelflings raced to get the shard to the crystal in time, and Davie Bowie wore tights.
Because this swap is not limited to one show or movie, it is possible that you may get a partner who has different Henson favorites than you do. I will do my best to match people up with similar interests, but I may not always be able to do that. For example, a Sesame Street fan might be paired up with a Dark Crystal fan and have to make crafts that pertain to their partner's likes and not necessarily their own. I don't want to put a limit on sizes and items of what should be sent. Please plan to correspond with your partner as to how many items/sizes to send. At least plan to make one “big” item, since I've given you a month from the end sign ups to the send out date. Big is defined as an item that takes 3 or more hours to craft.
