Details of swap:
The idea is to make one tiny Olympics Themed craft item. It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill. Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill. (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)
You will receive only one partner. You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap. All items must be 5"x5" or smaller. The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship. Since it is the Olympics, I am making this OTT 5 inches or smaller.
How do you know if your idea is "tiny?" Examples: A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not. A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not. A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not. If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND DON'T REPLY WITH IT HERE.

A few other things to follow:
1. Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.
2. Please put OTT Olympics in the subject line of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it!
3. A DC# is not required since the packages are very small. In all cases, save your receipt and be prepared to
show me a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion
4. Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras! It will be noted in your feedback if you don't follow
the 'rule' and send extras
5. I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you
MUST inform me and your partner.GALLERY: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=412826.0
