"My Art for Your Craft"

Details of swap: This swap is designed to give artists an outlet to swap and to give crafters an opportunity to receive original, custom art.  Specify your ability (artist or crafter), your skills/style, and what you hope to receive.  (If more artists than crafters sign up, or vice versa, I may have to limit sign-ups.)  Once you are assigned a partner, please work out details on how many/what kind of items to swap.

I also want to make sure that there is enough time for artists to be artsy and crafters to be crafty, so if the send by date needs to be extended, I can do that (but yeah, my birthday is July 30, so I kinda want to have my item by them *grin*)  If anyone has questions/suggestions, be sure to post them so we can try to work this out to be a FANTASTIC swap!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: My Art for Your Craft
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?

What do you create - art, craft, or both?  (If you can do both, please fill out both sections below; you will only need to create for one category, depending on whether I need more artists or more crafters to balance out the sign-ups.)

ARTISTS:  Describe your art skills (favorite media, style, favorite subject matter, etc.).
What type of crafts do you hope to trade for?
If we have more artists than crafters sign up, would you be interested in trading art for art?

CRAFTERS:  What type of crafts do you create?
Describe the kind of art you hope to receive (style, subject matter, etc.).
If we have more crafters than artists sign up, would you be interested in trading craft for craft?

yeah maybe a send by date of 7/30 would encourage me to sign up - my bday is aug 2, i'm a fellow leo! Wink i'm a crafter so i suppose it depends on how complicated my items are to make and i live in the uk so shipping takes a bit longer. what does everyone else think?

that's fine by me - i can totally extend dates based on what people need.  if you sign up, i'll change it for you.  that'd give us a whole month to work too.

Oh my gosh, teamwang - you're in the UK??  If you're my partner, could I BEG you to send me some Trebor Extra Strong Mints, too??  I'll send you some tins of Altoids in trade - you guys don't actually have them there, do you?  (My last boyfriend was English, and he had never seen Altoids until he came to live in the States.)  Hey, even if I'm not your craft/art partner, maybe I could persuade you to be my "mint swap partner?"   Grin

This is a really amazing idea - however I have to think about what I would like to recieve and what I could offer.  Are we counting photography as art? 

Wow - i have some thinknig to do.  I love swaps that challenge me Smiley
