Swap name: OTT Halloween Edition
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: PerlaBella
Sign-up date range: Oct 1st - Oct 7th
Date to send item by: Oct 31st

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No limit

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?: No
If so, which country?: N/A

Age requirement?: 16+ (per the new swap guidelines)

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
One Tiny Thing swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills. (For example, a needlebook can have beading or embroidery on it to really jazz it up.)

Like previous rounds, this OTT is going to be a themed one. To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October!! So your 5 themes should be related to the October celebrations: Halloween, Day of the Dead, Samhain, Oktoberfest and all other celebrations

[I had to call it something specific such as Halloween so I apologize to celebrators of other festivals - I don't mean to offend by any means]

Also an FYI - the NEXT OTT round will go back to "normal" with just the 5 random themes. This is just to celebrate October! Smiley So if you're not a fan of any of those celebrations, don't worry!

Anyways, this means: list 5 themes for your partner to choose from to craft your item. In other words, if you choose the color blue as a theme in your list, your partner could make something based on that theme, ie: blue stitch markers. Your themes can be anything; you just need 5.

After you have been approved, you are welcome to post your 5 themes in the thread. That being said, if you spy (with your little eye) that you rather fancy someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM PerlaBella/me and let me know that you would like to be partnered up with that participant. I cannot guarantee that you will indeed get that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Other Details of the swap:
1. You will have one partner.
2. This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send Extras, that will be noted in your feedback. The whole point of this swap is to be low-stress and simple so it's not fair if some abide by this rule but others don't.
3. You can only send your partner ONE tiny thing. (See below for examples of a tiny thing.) All items must be within 4"x4" dimensions or smaller.

Is your item tiny?:
Pair of earrings - tiny; necklace, earrings and bracelet set - NOT tiny
ATC - tiny; full-size drawing - NOT tiny
Change purse - tiny; clutch purse - NOT tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions; if the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay. If you aren't sure if your idea can be considered "tiny", please ask!

Rules of the swap:
- Please use the following subject when sending PMs: OTT Halloween - with one of the following:
Approval
Sent
Received
Question

- You must: a. post in the thread (original or gallery) at least once a week OR b. PM me and your partner once a week. Real life is more important than online life - if you need an extension for sending, please let me and your partners know. This is really important to avoid the "flaker" and negative feedback possibility.

- One week before the Oct 31st  send-out date, you will receive a PM to check that everything is okay. If you think you may be sending late, you MUST PM me and your partner.

- This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft, and NOTHING else. If you do send Extras, that will be noted in your feedback.

- You MUST post a picture of your received item in the gallery...because we're all curious little ones  Smiley If you don't have access to a camera or scanner, please make arrangements with your partner.
