You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.
There will not a be a check in time, as in previous swaps, but you should craft now and be ready to send when you receive your partner info.

When partners are assigned, you will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 3 days after receiving addresses to ship your personal art off! You may choose to include your Craftster name on your art when you send. Also, please send pm ONLY to me, Smmarrt when you SEND your piece. When you RECEIVE your piece, send to me, and your partner(s).

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: April 28 - May 6
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW through May 6


~ Addresses will be distributed by May 7, 2019
~ You must ship between May 8 - May 11, 2019

Swap Rules:  
~You must post in thread at least once before being accepted into the swap.
~ Please continue to communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras 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!

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 4 x 6 Art Swap - Again? on: April 19, 2019 10:05:40 AM
This is my current favorite swap - easy to make, easy to package, and easy to send.

You create anything that measures 4" by 6" when completed. You can sew, paint, draw, collage, mixed media, crochet?, and much, much more.

Here are some examples from previous swaps:

Details of swap:

Mini prayer flags - everything small is fun, right? You will make 3 mini prayer flags. The finished size should be at least 4" x 6" but no larger than 5" x 7". You will keep one flag and send the other two to your partner. Your partner will keep one and abandon one in the world.

The base can be fabric with any kind of embellishment - paint, buttons, paper, more fabric, ribbon, yarn, beads, photos, felt, and the list goes on. The same basic instructions for making flags apply* - add a rod pocket at the top so the flag can be hung from a twig or a dowel. You do NOT have to send the twig or dowel!

The three flags do not have to be copies - you can repeat colors, fabric, or embellishments to make a set but it is not necessary.

*If your finished flag is 4" by 6", you should start with fabric that measures 4" by 9" - the extra 3" makes the rod pocket.

Please post a comment in the discussion thread once a week or so - that way we can all keep in touch with each others' progress. Thank you.

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mini Prayer Flags on: April 26, 2018 10:10:56 PM
I've been thinking about this all week for some reason so I had to make some.



This one measures about 3.24" by 5.5".



This one is a bit larger, 3.75" by 5.5".

And the last one...



3" by 5.5"


I didn't measure before making but I was aiming for about index card size.

If you like these, I am planning a swap to make a set of three - keep one, swap two and your partner will abandon the third.
Thanks for looking!

Just thinking it might be fun to make smaller flags, maybe 3" x 5" or 4" x 6" (finished size.)

The advantage to this would be that you could make multiples - maybe 3.
One to keep and 2 to send and your partner abandons the third flag in his/her neighborhood.
