Details of swap:
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.To celebrate the December Winter Holidays, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in December (Christmas, Hanukkah, Advent, Winter Solstice, Boxing Day, Winter in general, etc.)! Your five themes should be related to these.
In this swap, participants will have one partner. Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes. For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament. Each tiny thing should measure 4 inches by 4 inches or smaller. This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED
, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know. I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.
Communication is important. Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!
-post photos of your received OTT in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partners to have them post)Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings=tiny ---- necklace, earrings and bracelet set=NOT tiny
ATC=tiny --- 8x10 drawing=NOT tiny
change purse=tiny --- clutch purse=NOT tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions; if the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay. If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!
This is the first Winter OTT so there are not really any galleries but do check out other OTT galleries for inspiration.
If you want to participate, send this information to organizer gerbilgal
via PM with "OTT Winter" in the subject line--DO NOT POST YOUR THEMES UNTIL YOU ARE APPROVED
