Details of swap:
For anyone who doesn't know what it is: "Dieselpunk is a style that blends the art and culture of the 1920s - 1950s with today.

The era we look to for inspiration was defined by movement and revolution: jazz, modern art, world wars, streamlined technology, and an evolution from stilted, Victorian-era hypocrisy. Our goal is to shape a better future for ourselves by merging the zeitgeist of the past with today's technology and attitudes." (From here: http://www.dieselpunks.org/)

This is going to be a 4 point swap, and one item must be either a large or medium. This means you can make either a large and a small, two mediums, or a medium and two smalls. You can make clothing, accessories, wall art, or really anything you can think of. I think most people here are new to Dieselpunk, so don't feel intimidated, just come join us! There is a lot of overlap between Dieselpunk and Steampunk, so feel free to mention if you like both of them in the questionnaire.

I reserve the right to refuse anyone due to feedback, frequent late senders or flakers may be refused! I want this to be a flake free swap!

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Yep, those will be going into the reserved post right up there ^! I just need to not spend my entire work day on Craftster (although I'll probably put those up while I eat lunch...). I'm so glad you can join!

It's a general costuming inspiration board so it might not fit in very well up there, but here it is if anyone wants to check the randomness: http://pinterest.com/ccalabaza/costuming-and-related/ I really am all over the board  Smiley

I just sent in my q'naire and now I can't wait for partners (and to see what awesomeness Alchamy creates this time!)

Oh, Alchamy! Why am I not surprised to see your portrait up at the top? Tongue

Sadly, I'll likely be drooling from afar, as I'm currently unemployed Sad

Aw, I wish you could join! I'm sure there will be another one in the future (it depends on how this one goes but I'm really starting to like this style). Sorry to hear about the job situation, I hope it gets better soon...
