Details of swap:
This swap is the chance for you to embrace your inner pin-up! If you love vintage fashion and retro styling this is an opportunity to craft pin-up accessories, clothing, jewellery or craft items featuring your partners’ favourite pin-ups. All crafts welcome! If you need some inspiration, check out this great website http://www.thepinupfiles.com/
The criteria for this swap is SIX points. Here’s the guide for reference:
Big – 3 points
Medium – 2 points
Small – 1 Point.
For more information, check out the swapping guidelines. To make it applicable to this swap, I’d say a small could be a single piece of jewellery, a medium could be a bag and a large could be a well made item of clothing.
Of course, as always, if you and your partner want to do more than that is completely ok! So long as you’re both aware.
Any problems, questions etc please don’t hesitate to contact me. Smiley

If this is the swap for you, fill out this questionnaire and send it in a personal message to me (midnight).

Sign-ups are until the 12th? I might have to join! Let me finish the MAF swap (which I'm sending LATE!) and post pics for the 3 other swaps I'm just about done with then I will decide...
Actually, I think I've already decided, but let me see if I can get my creative mojo back. These kids are sapping me!
