Details of swap:
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 are 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.

~ No extra's please! Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra. This includes sending more than one art piece. Only send ONE art piece to your partner.
