Details of swap:

You will be crafting one Tiny House for your partner.  This swap will have the same parameters as the OTT or One Tiny Thing swap.  Your house must be smaller than 4 X 4", and can be made in any media with any materials you choose.  The goal is to craft something tiny that you can create with a high level of skill.  Careful work, beautiful details, embellishment and interesting finishes/stitches/clay work, etc. are encouraged. 

You will have one partner.  You can only send your partner one Tiny House, so extras are not allowed in this swap.  We want a relatively low-impact swap that won't break the piggy bank on materials or shipping.

Rules of the Swap

Additional requirements:

1.  Keep in regular contact with me (the organizer).  When pm'ing me about the swap always put Tiny House Swap in the subject so I don't miss your pm.  If you foresee that you will have a problem sending out on time or have another issue please let me know as soon as it comes up.

2.  Keep in regular contact with your partner. 

3. YOU MUST PM ME AND YOUR PARTNER WHEN YOU SEND AND WHEN YOU RECEIVE.  If you are sending within your own country, you must have a DC# (delivery confirmation number)?they cost an extra $.50-$.60 in the US.  When  you pm to say you have sent, be sure to include your DC number.  If you are sending outside of your country and cannot get a tracking number, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping.

4.  When you receive, you must post pictures in the gallery. If you don't have a digital camera, make sure you let your partner know so that s/he can photograph their work before shipping, and post their own pictures once you've received.  This is a good thing to do anyhow, just in case (God forbid) your package gets lost in the mail or something... 



If you want to participate, complete the following questionairre and pm it to me (do not post your response in the thread). 

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Are you able to take pictures of your item to post in the gallery?:
What craft skills would you use to make your Tiny House (e.g. embroidering, papier mache, regular or polymer clay sculpting, wood carving, knitting, crochet, etc.) 
Describe your dream (tiny) house.  This can include links to houses you love, favorite colors, favorite materials, etc... or you can leave it open and let your partner stalk and surprise you.
Do you have pets or allergies (or both)? 
Anything else you would like your partner to know?:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

You guys have to see this... I looked up "tiny house" on google, looking maybe for some ideas, and I came across this site: http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com.  This guy lives in a house that is 89 square feet!  And he built it himself.  Crazy.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
