Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make a piece of art, in your style,  in your medium, how you want.  The only parameters would be that you keep it flat, and 4 inches by 6 inches big.   You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  And then you will only know their Address and proper name. You will then have just under 1 week to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down in point form:
~ Sign ups: March 2- March 8
~ Crafting period: March 9 to March 30
~ Addresses will be distributed on March 31.
~ You must ship by April 5th (as the 6th is Good friday)

Swap Rules:  
~ Please communicate within the thread at least once per week.  Communication makes the swap process more fun, and no one is left wondering " Hey, where did so and so go?"  All I want is a quick "Hey I'm still here, still crafting!"
~ No extra's please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: belladune and alteredmommy



QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap

Craftster username

Email address

Your real name

Sounds really fun, but need to check what else I'm going to have going on as I've committed to organise a couple of swaps soon.

Oops!  I forgot to state, please send your questionaires to both Alteredmommy and I.  I'll edit the original post, and if you have already sent your q, don't worry about sending another, I'll just forward them to AM.

I love this idea!  Sometimes the most stressful part is stalking your partner, and this way you get a complete surprise.  I signed up and can't wait to start!   I think I will do a mini quilt.
