Details of swap:
In the Beginner Inchies and 1 ATC Swap, we discussed variations on the inchie swap theme. One swapper, Crafty Butterfly, came up with the title.
So what is an inchie? A rinchie? And a twinchie?
Here is a link to explain it all: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0

Great list of free images:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148627.0
Not all of these links are still active but lots of fun to look through and there are many sites that have LOTS of images.
The short answer is that an inchie is a one-inch SQUARE piece of art, a rinchie is a one-inch ROUND piece of art and a twinchie is a TWO-inch SQUARE piece of art. With enough swappers, you will be in a group of three or four swappers and you will create 1 Twinchie, and 2 inchies and 2 rinchies. So 5 miniature pieces of art for each partner. The inchies, et cetera, should be made on card stock or thick paper. Inchies can be hand-drawn, painted, collaged, woven, sewn and much more.
When sign ups end, and partners are assigned, you'll receive a PM from me with each partners preferences. You can make/design/create 5 pieces around one of their themes or 5 individual pieces around 5 of their themes. So you might make five cat things or 1 cat, 1 dog, 1 bird, 1 quote and 1 food piece. Get it?

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Inchies, Rinchies and Twinchies! Oh My! Swap
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? This is a one-envelope swap (notecard or greeting card sized) so I think we can all afford to send at least one envelope overseas? Let me know if this is really a hardship.
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)
**DCs are not required as this is a paper swap. But feel free to use them. And remember that if your envelope/package goes missing, you will need to remake and resend.
Can you post/check in the discussion thread art least once a week?
Do you promise to be respectful in your comments about the organizer and other swappers?
Do you have a digital camera or scanner?
Can you upload images of what you receive in a timely manner?
List 5 - 10 themes that you'd like to receive:
Any allergens in your home?
Any allergies that you have?
Anything else that you'd like to tell your partners?
