Swap name: Create-A-Creature Swap
Organizer: Sitki
Sign-up date range: June 29 to July 7 (4 more days to sign up!)
Date to send item by: July 25

Limited to a certain number of people? No

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages - parental permission required if under 16

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

DETAILS OF SWAP:
EDIT: Due to mild confusion, I shall clarify: You make a list of 5 creatures you want to make, and your partner gets to pick from the list. OR-- List 5 you'd like to recieve, and your partner can pick what they'd like to make.If you and your partner want to do things differently, that's fine, as long as you're both happy.

A 'horned' toad, a winged zebra, a cuddly pink gargoyle...wouldn't it be fun to make up your own unconventional and original creature? This swap is dedicated to creating the most unique creature your imagination can come up with. You will make a list of 5 creatures that your partner can pick from (or 5 you'd like your partner to create). You have the choice of crafting the following:

-ATC (Artist Trading Card, 2x3 inches) OR
-1 Small craftcoin purse, cell cozy, polymer clay creature, etc.

AND

-Large crafttote/purse, wall art etc. OR
-Med. Craftt-shirt, journal, zipper purse, etc.

So you'll be sending two items.

These are only examples of things to craft, not limitations. Be creative, and communicate with your partner.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Create-A-Creature Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:

Crafted Creatures youd like to receive:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

But shouldn't you kinda omit that (not to be a problem)..but we are creating them from OUR imagination... not our partners...unless I am understanding this wrong

I think maybe (and correct me if I'm wrong) this wasn't her question.  It says that the characters should be from "our imaginations."  So if our partners tell us what to make, then there's nothing coming from our imagination.  Is that what you meant, hurricane?

I fixed it, I'm sorry for the mix-up! Although it did say you came up with 5 creatures from your head, and then your partner would get to craft them. I fixed it so either way is an option.

I dont understand a few things like :
1- how many items? One large and one small? or one ATC and a medium item?
2- whats a ATC?
3- is there going to be two groups? Like group A is the ones that want their creatures to be what they tell their partners to make them ; and group B is people who want to receive a creature from their partners's imagination? Does that make any sense to anyone else?

If it were that case id like to be in group B... I want to be surprised and surprise my partner.

An ATC is an artist trading card, about 2.5x3.5. You just create an example of your work on it.

You get to pick one item from each group, just like you asked.

Partners will get to pick which they want to do, but there won't be two defined groups--I'm leaving it up to partners to decide, just specify when you send in your swap info.

I am so excited I just had to tell you all.
I don't knit, well rather I have never known how to cast on or off but I know how to do basic knitting.
well yesterday I taught myself how to with the help of a book or 2 LOL.
So I knitted a little item to go with one of my bigger items to send to my partner, I have spent the last 4-5 days crafting and I am almost finished just 1 more item to go and then off to the post office.
I have had so much fun making these items that I had to stop or the box I sent would be so huge. hehehe.
I still have a ton more ideas will have to keep them for next time thought.

awesomely cool!  haha.  i work at michaels so my planning sessions are while i'm working...lol.  i'm on the craft side (now isnt that a blessing!  =P) and i'm shopping as i work.  i picked up a bunch of things yesterday so i hope it'll all work out.  ^^

too bad i've been told i'm not allowed to craft until i clean my room. lol.  if you've seen my room, you'd know why.  imagine about 30 plastic bags filled with michaels goodies, about 7 boxes of books, and a lot of jewelry making stuff and fabrics just scattered randomly.  i've been tripping over the same pile of fabrics every day for the last three weeks.  the problem is if i clean this all, i wont have a clue where to find my things!  ><

i'm gonna sneak in a few more crafts before i clean.  haha.
