5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dollar Store Swap Round 2 on: September 17, 2018 06:04:26 PM
There hasn't been another since 2010. Would there be interest? Basically you buy items from a Dollar Store or Pound Store and make crafts using the items from the store.

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.

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.  The tiny thing should fit within four square inches. If you need a couple inches wiggle room, that is okay.  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.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October [Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead (even though it is Nov 2nd), Oktoberfest, Hop-Tu-Naa, Mabon, Autumn in general, etc.]! Your five themes should be related to these.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread at least once
-take a photo of your item before you send (so you can post in the gallery if your partner can't)

Is your item tiny?
4" tall stuffie  = tiny   Smiley
      14" tall stuffie = Not tiny
small change purse  = tiny   Smiley
      clutch purse    = Not tiny


Bottom line:    4"x4" dimensions      
      If the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings or stitch markers), that is okay.
      If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

Need inspiration? Check out the galleries from previous swaps:

See https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453131.0 for all the previous swaps for inspiration

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER gerbilgal VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE titled "OTT" AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.
Wait until you are approved to post your themes, please!

Note:  Please doublecheck your questionnaire to make sure you have answered every question before sending it to me.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Exotic Pet Swap (was Rodent Revolution 7) on: September 04, 2018 12:19:33 PM
It's been a couple of years since I did this swap. This is a swap for your exotic pets or pet lovers a heart. This would be a long swap. Crafting time would be long as this swap has a history of really spoiling our babies. Who is up for the swap?

I will probably start this swap close to the end of the month.
