Details of Swap:
It's all about birds!
This swap was greatly inspired by Creative Kismet
. Thank you!
Like the originator of this idea, I love the idea of collecting handcrafted birds to display around my house. My ideal solution for this is to have all sorts of birds from all sorts of places in all sorts of mediums. This gives each person all the room they need to be CREATIVE!
This swap will be a group swap with handmade birds, in any medium (paper, felt, glass, ANYTHING!), traded among friends. Each bird should be roughly the size of the palm of your hand (roughly 4x6) and can be two- or three-dimensional.
The group aspect comes in because we will be split into groups and you will make ONE BIRD for EVERY PERSON in your group. So if you have 5 people in your group, you will make and send 5 birds by the send date.
You may choose to send to ONE group of 5 people or to TWO groups (10 birds total). Please specify in the questionnaire.
This IS an international swap so please bear that in mind when crafting your birds as you probably don't want to make them solid steel or anything. Before sending, please take a picture of your birds and email it to the organizer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm that you are ready to send. Only when ALL members of YOUR group have done so should you send the birds out.
Please put "HANDMADE BIRDS" in the title of all pms. ETA: This swap may entail you sending a bird or two internationally. If you cannot send internationally even a few ounces, please do not sign up for this swap. Thank you!IMPORTANT: Do not send your birds until everyone in your group is "green-lighted". All participants must check in at least once a week, by pm or by posting in this thread.
If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner.
NOTE: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.
To participate, and to indicate you've read the rules, pm the questionnaire and put the word RADIO somewhere in the message.
To be approved, the questionnaire must be completely filled out (unless you don't have any wists/websites, of course).Questionnaire
