This swap is continuing the tradition of reclaiming the fairy tales that we like best! Who hasn't read a tale that is pretty but not quite right? And who hasn't just wanted to write their own version? So get out your editorial tools and let's go to town. Vampire Red Riding Hood? Mermaids singing in Snow White? A Briar Rose that actually frees herself?
There are countless stories out there to choose from. Some more obvious choices are; Disney, Grimm, Mother Goose, and Aesop, but you can also choose from the wide variety of lesser known stories or even explore myths. Please include a link or description for your partner if you chose a lesser known story/character.
In this swap we will be altering fairy tales/characters that our partners like and crafting based on themes they give us. This is a 6 point swap. This roughly translates to one large item, one medium item and one small item. There is a guide at the end of the post for how to estimate sizes/points. The points/sizes are a guide to make sure that the standard of crafting in the swap stays high... so really the only absolute requirements are that you make things that are based on your partners preferences and that you give it your all.
The Rules for this Swap:
Please PM me once a week to confirm that you're still alive and crafting (this is so you're not required to be chatty on the thread if you don't want to be)
Please PM me if your partner has not been in touch for over a week (so I know of potential flakers earlier rather than later)
Please PM me if you have any concerns about the swap or your partner or both.
Please let me know of any circumstances that affect your ability to participate in the swap as soon as you know of them.2. Sending and receiving
If you're sending within the US, you are required to have a DC number.
If you're sending internationally, you are required to keep your receipt as proof. It is also a good idea to take photos prior to sending.
Please PM me and your partner when you send or receive a package.
Please post photos of what you receive in the gallery.
Your feedback will note:
a) whether you sent on time or not
b) whether you communicated adequately with me and your partner
c) whether you kept to the swap rules
If you're talking to your partner and keeping me posted, feedback will reflect that, so no reason to stress!There is a long crafting period so use your time wisely! Take the time to get to know your partner and craft to their needs/desires/preferences. The more you get to know them the more fun it gets and the better the chances of everyone having a blast!
