Totaly inspired by this: http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/4x6exchange

Basically you create a piece of flat, 4x6 art, in your own style, in your own medium and you swap it with a random craftster!   You would get an address, but no information about who you are sending too.  Just make something beautiful and get something beautiful in exchange!

I love that idea. How many partners were you thinking? Smalls?

I was going to sign up for that but it filled up before I got the chance.  I'd be in.

Just one partner, it would simply be the 4x6 measurement required, so if you took 15 minutes to fill it with what you felt was your best work, then that's all it would take.  But I'd ask that you only send your best work. 
I suppose so no one got anything that may seem offensive to them I'd ask in the q what do you find offensive?  And would you be craftinganything that someone might find offensive?    Does that sound like it would be safe enough?

 Materials you would be using would be great as part of the questionnaire. And what materials would you want/not want?

Well, you wouldn't really know who would be receiving yours, other then thier proper name.  And also you wouldn't know who you would be recieving from.  It's just a "Make something really awesome" surprise.  I would be the only person who would know who's recieving from whom, and would sort you out simply by the prefered materials to receive, what you find offensive, likes/dislikes etc.

Belladune, I would love this, bc putting in my best mediums would be a hoot. The fact you don't know who you are sending to is awesome. While I will probably use paper or fabric or wire or yarn or paint or glass or ...... I will promise to wash any materials bf crafting and not smoke around them. I do have a smoke free room. Oh, cat free too. LOL
