Details of swap:
You will be altering a spool for your partner.  The spool itself must be the prominent part of the project, not just used as a peripheral element. There are many sizes of spools available, from those you would find in your sewing kit up to large cable reels.  To keep things fair, please don't use a spool larger than 6 inches tall.  

You will receive only one partner.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out.  We want to see your best work, this gallery will be wonderful!

For those new to altered spools, here is link to a pinterest board - http://www.pinterest.com/missingwillow/altered-spools/.  There are many other versions if you'd like to do a search.  This is a "no extras" swap and there is a lot of time to craft, so make sure you do something spectacular!  Oh, and the secret word is  "I sent this questionnaire to both MissingWillow and HSG."

NOTE:
If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Yay!  Hi you guys!  I'm really looking forward to this.  This is my first swap to set up and run.  A big hug and thank you to HSG who agreed to hold my hand (and to all of our fabulous swap mods in advance for anything I mess up and need fixing).   Cheesy
