OK - here are three examples of my sketches.  I did these for craftster member Rusty in the Wish Swap.  My camera has an overactive flash, which is why these look a little faded.  But it gives you some idea of my style.

I hope someone can help me with this one. The more I think about it, the more confused I get...what is the difference between art and craft?

Yeah, it's kind of a fuzzy line I think.  For this swap I personally, was thinking art- painting, photography, drawing, etc. Craft- knitting, sewing, jewelry, etc. That was just what was in my head though. Other people may have different ideas.

I think along the same lines as Crafty Kate.  Also, I think of crafts as usually being functional/useful for something, and I think of art as usually being for display.

no problem at all!  we still have the rest of the day and sign-ups are looking GREAT!

and i agree, for the purpose of this swap, i think the "artists" are looking for "things" rather than pieces to look at and admire.  it is a very fine line though.  feel free to discuss it with your partners to make sure you're on the same page.  i was figuring that the art would be hand-drawn or painted, sculpted, photographed, or digitally drawn.  the crafts would involve putting things together to make something else.

OK guys - signups are CLOSED!  i'll work on matching people up tonight and will try to have them to you by the end of the weekend (i'm going to a wedding tomorrow so that kills my saturday).  thanks so much for all of your interest in this fantastic swap!

and for the records, here is some of my work:












that's just a sampling of my illustration style.  i also do other things, but this is my favorite.  whoever i swap with can have me do a portrait of someone (famous or someone they know) for them, or have me make something up.

those are just amazing....I am super excited for this swap, as I have tons of crafty talent, but absolutely no artistic talent. Again, everyones artwork looks awesome....

OK, so i got myself determined to pair people up today so everyone could get going, so here's the list:

1.  SheRa < > lucertola
2. Writer78 < > sedrasmom
3. Flareon < > lucid501
4. Toadstool < > super geek
5. Fouficat < > StarSix
6. Lexis < > teamwang
7. Notasingletear < > allfalldown
8. DsgndbyRJ < > grasshopper
9. BionicDevices < > craftykate
10. SheRa < > icrispyi

i'm PMing the info to everyone now, and if i messed ANYTHING up, let me know!  it's my first time organizing, and it was a little challenging matching people up taking non-US residents into account.  we have a diverse group here, so it should be great!  also, we had 19 people in this swap, so i'm taking 2 swap partners so that we can all participate.  WHEW!
