DETAILS OF SWAP:
For this swap, you will make ONE (absolutely no extras, please) tiny thing for your secret pal.  Partners will be assigned randomly (no favouritism here!) and done in secrecy (you will need to come up with a super secretive alias Wink).

In order to figure out what your secret pal would like, feel free to check out his/her Craftster posts, pinterest, blog, and so forth.  If you have specific questions for your secret pal (example: whats his/her ring size?), you may send them to me and I will try to get answers for you.  Based on your findings, you can start work on something phenomenal for your secret pal Cheesy  

The OTT should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill. This tiny thing may be made with any material, and the completed item should measure 4 by 4 or smaller.  

Since youll only be crafting and sending one small item, please make every effort to ensure that that youre making something spectacular that youll be proud to receivesomething awesome that you know your partner will adore! Cheesy

A pair of earrings AND necklace set NO!
An ornament - YES!
A set of stitch markers YES!
A mini notebook YES!
A set of mini notebooks NO!
Artwork measuring a total of 4 by 4 or less YES!
*Note: If youre trying to determine if your idea qualifies as a tiny thing, ask your friendly swap organizer (oh wait, thats me Grin).

Other housekeeping details and what-nots
1.  I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of multiple instances of poor communication and/or late sending.
2.  Please make at least one post on this thread so I know that youre getting all messages in the swap thread!
3.  Check the swap thread regularly. Feel free to discuss your OTT and post teasers about what youre working on.  Itll be fun to keep everyone guessing! Cheesy  
4.  Communication is essential!  If youre having issues with the swap, or if youre sending late (for whatever reasons), you must contact the organizer.  Poor communication will be noted in your feedback Sad

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Oh, man! I can't do this round... Although I have a cool idea I want to try... so I'll have to think... and check the calendar... so maybe, if it doesn't fill up, I might jump in again!
