Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap


------------------------------------------------------------------------

Swap name: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap

- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required
for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Whether you want to decorate an entire Steampunk tree, complete with a clockwork tree, or if you would rather just add to your collection, you should join! We'll be making a set of ornaments (the goal right now is groups of 6, but this may change, and it will only be smaller if they do) and sending one ornament to each partner. These ornaments can be completely from scratch, or you can alter an existing ornament to look Steampunk.

Your ornaments can be sweat shop style (all the same) or each one can be unique. You should be making 6 in all (unless group sizes change) , one for each partner and one for yourself.

It doesn't matter how big or small your ornament is, but keep in mind that it should be big enough to be admired on a tree (probably at least 3x3 if not a little bigger) and light enough to hang on a branch. If you have ornaments, look at those first to see what a good size would be! Beyond that, use your creativity to craft something your partners will love. They should also have something to hang them from! Take your time (we have almost two months of crafting time) and have fun! This should be a low stress swap.

Finally, I have the right to refuse anyone who has consistently late feedback or negatives. I'd love for this to be a flake free swap!

... after all the fuss about wanting to take part in this one, I've realized that we'll be moving right around the time of sendouts. Probably not a good idea to participate.  Cry

Thank you, Alchamy, for setting this up!

I'm so intrigued!  I need to check on my schedule and such to see if I will be able to make time for this swap.  It would be fun to make some steam punk ornaments. Smiley

Aw, the ornaments don't necessarily have to be super Christmasy, so unless its a religious thing you should join!

Words I love to type:  Info SENT!

And as for Christmas-y, Just put on your info you prefer no religious themes.  I may leave mine on a special shelf all year.   Wink

Making 6 high quality ornaments is a little intimidating, but we do have a good amount of time and it would be incredible to receive 6!
