This is going to be a 5 point swap, requiring at least one medium OR one large. Extras may be discussed with your partner. Below is a guide for those who need it. If you don't need it, then you're probably a pro.

-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

REQUIREMENTS: You must also be able to take and post pictures of the swap package that you receive. You must also check in once a week by posting on the swap thread about the progress you're making. This is my first time organizing and the last thing anyone wants is people to flake on this swap! Smiley

I am really excited about this swap. I wasn't sure if I would have time with doing the make a friend swap, but I think I can manage it. I think I would probably want the things I receive to be more geared for my fiance though because he is a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan. I always do at least one or two Calvin and Hobbes related crafts for him as Christmas gifts. I will be sending in my questionnaire either tonight or tomorrow. This should be fun!

Ooooooh.  Calvin's dad is pretty much my favorite comic character of all time.  I have one thing left to finish in the Miyazaki swap and when I'm done with it I'll sign up for this.

I am SO in! I've been looking forward to this swap and saving a spot for it!! My brother is the C&H fanatic, but I think I love them almost as much. I'll be sending in my survey tomorrow!

OH MY. I would love to make this my first swap but I'm still pretty new to craftster and I'm moving in three weeks so all my extra time should be spent packing...  Tongue

You know what makes this swap a little more challenging/awesome? The fact that Bill Watterson (the creator) never merchandised C&H. So there are no toys, shirts, action figures, TV series, to work from. I think it's cool personally, but we'll have to be extra creative! I know we can always go the route of simply putting their image onto other items- which, don't get me wrong, is wonderful (I mean, who doesn't want them on a shirt or keychain), but it's also fun to think outside the box and make C&H themed items, like the Hobbes dolls I've seen on here, or a Calvinball game kit... Ok, I have other ideas, but I'm keeping them under wraps for now. Smiley
