**Details of swap:**
In this swap you will be swapping BJD goods with your partner.  I will make sure that you have at least one doll size in common to make things go smoothly.  I would prefer that most of your swap goods are hand-made, but store bought items are fine as well.  You can swap clothing, jewelry, or furniture that you have made, store bought clothing, wigs, etc.  

THIS IS A 6-POINT SWAP
Large: 3 points
Medium: 2 points
Small: 1 point
OR any combination of these.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
-Make a doll carrying case in your partner's favorite colors.
-Food erasers from Japan have become very popular here and they are the perfect size for BJD food.  Find your partner's doll's favorite food and send it!
-Sew, knit, or crochet an outfit in your partner's doll's style
-Find some unfinished wood doll furniture at your local craft store and paint it
-Is your partner just getting started in the world of BJD?  Send them a starter kit made from items that your doll no longer uses.
-If you enjoy working with polymer clay, make some miniatures to send to your partner.


YOU MUST GET DELIVERY CONFIRMATION WHEN SENDING YOUR ITEM.  If you are sending to a different country and D/C is not available, be sure to save your receipt from the post office so you have a record of sending your item.

As always, be sure to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are working on your swap items.  Also, be sure to take pictures of what you make before you send it in case your partner can't post to the gallery.

Thanks for joining the swap, everyone!  This is going to be really fun.  I just thought of another idea for things to make for this swap: a bjd wig out of yarn.  Ghilie made an awesome tutorial for it and if anyone is interested I'll track down the link.


Please make sure that if I've sent you a PM saying "welcome to the swap" that it actually says you are participating in the swap in your profile.
