I was wondering if anyone would be interested in another round (Round 6, I think) of the 4x6 art swap. I would be willing to organize!

For those that haven't participated in the past- the 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make ONE piece of art, in your style,  in any medium, how you want.  The only parameters would be that you keep it relatively 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.  The organizers will do their best to match up partners but do remember that this is essentially a "surprise" swap and no information other than a real name and address will be sent out to you.

Any one up for creating some art??

How does that timeline sound to everyone??

Almost all of my swap packages are due out the same time, but that just means I need to stay focused...I am good on the dates since I will be playing in my messy craft room anyway! Cheesy
