THE DETAILS
Thanks to Smmarrt…I’m stealing all her stuff ☺

Finish that puzzle you started last round or start a new puzzle. You purchase or re-purpose a jigsaw puzzle - it can be wood or cardboard - and send 2 pieces to each of your four partners. You can send two random pieces or two neighboring pieces. You choose the theme or themes, or select "Artist's Choice" and your two pieces are returned to you painted, decorated, embellished and fabulous! Think ATCs or inchies - just in a different configuration. Puzzle pieces can be challenging to alter, but the sky is the limit.

This is open to international partners. So if you are partnered with an international person, I may change or extend the send-out date to accommodate for each country's postal services. Also, for the USA, let's use Delivery Confirmation, (cost 80-cents). I know this isn't required in paper swaps, and you can send your blank pieces in an envelope with one or two stamps, but for the super-paranoid, let's use DCs for BOTH BLANKS AND ALTERED MAILINGS.

While waiting for partners, you should:

1. Buy or choose a puzzle.

2. Assemble and number the backside of EACH piece.

3. Decide if you want the pieces facing the same way or all over the place. Add arrows to backs of pieces to indicate which direction. (On the questionnaire, I will ask if your pieces are one direction or any direction).

4. Choose your theme or themes.

5. Prepare your pieces.  Some people just mail them as they are; others sand them a bit and add some gesso to make a clean slate.  It’s up to you.  

6. You can write a letter to include with your pieces and make your wishes known - glitter or no glitter, 3-D or no 3-D, words or no words, whatever guidelines you have for your finished pieces. You can also say "Artist's choice with an ocean theme" or "Artist's Choice" - this means each partner will decorate/alter the pieces in his/her own way and you will have a puzzle with a random look.

7. Remember, you will send out your pieces to each partner for altering. You may want to copy or trace pieces before sending out if anything goes missing.

PROGRESS FOR THIS ROUND
This round each swapper will be notating her own progress on sending/receiving in their own post at the start of the gallery.  In order to keep this organized, after you send the questionnaire and are added to the swap, you will receive directions for beginning and upkeeping your own progress post in the gallery.

I'm in too. I wasn't going to do any more swaps. I have a long list of stuff to do for myself. Then this one comes up. I've been wating all summer for this one, so here I am. I'll probably be looking for private swappers too. I have lots of puzzle pieces.

I've never done this type of swap before...hmmmm...seen it done though. Looks fun, interesting and easy. And! A great way to decorate my house with art work from others. Think I'll investigate some of the gallery's goodies and get a feel for it.

I have to come up with a theme - love the Beatles idea. I have several puzzles in progress but of course I want to start a new one. I'll think up something fabulous overnight...HP? Bad 70's music? Mullets?

The possibilities are endless.
