Details of Swap
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October (Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.)! Your five themes should be related to these.

In this swap, participants will have one partner.  Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes.  For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament.  Each tiny thing should measure 4 inches by 4 inches or smaller.  This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.

AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know.  I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partners to have them post)

Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings=tiny ---- necklace, earrings and bracelet set=NOT tiny
ATC=tiny ---  8x10 drawing=NOT tiny
change purse=tiny --- clutch purse=NOT tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions; if the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay. If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

If you need inspiration, check out the galleries in previous swaps:

OTT Halloween Edition 2

Hey, I recognize that! Smiley

This one was so much fun last year! School and work is gearing up to kick my rear-end, but I really want to do this one again!

I love the idea of everyone posting their lists - I always see things on other's lists that I would never have thought of!

Well, after looking through the previous threads, I had more than twice the themes I needed, but I narrowed it down to:
1. Non-human monsters (objects, animals, food, etc : zombies, ghosts, vampires, etc)
2. Shadows
3. Spiderwebs
4. Fall colors/leaves/trees
5. Anatomy
