**This is not to sign up....this is to prepare for the AUGUST SWAP**

There has been interest in resurrecting the One Tiny Thing Swaps, and I have offered to host an ongoing claim style version. I will be going on vacation next week, and plan to start this swap mid-August when I return. This will serve as our discussion thread for the swap from now on. When I open the swap in about 3 weeks, that thread will be list style claiming only. I am going to go ahead and list the questionnaire here with the info so folks can start getting their wish lists prepared, and can converse about things to add to our lists, and chat all One Tiny Things.  Once sign ups are officially posted, I'll start the claiming by posting my list, and when you sign up and are approved, you may start claiming.

**This is not to sign up....this is to prepare for the AUGUST SWAP**

Details of swap:
This is an ongoing swap: I will start the swap with my own list.  You will claim an item from my list then post your own list in response. The next person will claim you and post their own list. It makes a chain. I will make the last claim at the end of the month which will close the claiming for this round.

You will be claiming for (1) One Tiny Thing (OTT). Tiny things, by definition are 4 by 4 by 4 or smaller.  While the size is small, you should put your best effort into making something youd be proud to receive.   You may claim the same person more than once and send all the claims together IF you send by the earliest claims send by date.  For this swap, well consider a set of things oka set of earrings, a small set of tiny notecards, or anything that usually comes in a set (as long as it is less than 4 cubed.)   You are welcome to ask for store bought items as your claim as long as these items are only a small portion of your wish list.
*PM the person you have claimed and ask for their address when you are ready to ship then:
1) When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.
2) When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.
3) I am asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board--so that I know you're still here with us.  Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks cuz you weren't in the swap during the first 2 weeks).
4) Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.   If you need to bow out of the swap before the end of claiming, feedback will can be given if all your claims have been received. You need to claim at least 1 time to receive positive feedback. If at the end the swap you have not made a claim, the swap will be dropped from your profile and you will not receive negative feedback.
5) For claims: 1st time swapper 1 unsent claim (until package is in transit with proof).
Regular Swapper 2 unsent claims (until package is in transit with proof)
Friend of Craftster 3 unsent claims (until package is in transit with proof)
If you want to participate, information to send to: BigBangMomma
Name of swap: Ongoing One Tiny Thing Swap Rd 1
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:

1. Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (If not, please read carefully to be sure you do not claim someone outside your country)
2. Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)
3. Do you understand that you are claiming for one tiny thing? You are welcome to send extras, but please be aware that the person who claims you may not.
4. Are you a Friend of Craftster?
5. How many claims are you allowed? (New swappers--this would be your very first swap ever--1 claim; those who have been in swappers before--2 claims; Friends of Craftster--3 claims) Please type 1, 2 or 3-->
6. Do you agree that you will PM the organizer when you send and when you receive, and if sending, PM the delivery confirmation # or a pic of the receipt if you are outside the US?

7. Do you understand that you should post once a week in the discussion thread?

Any questions?

Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion/gallery thread. Please post at least once a week in the discussion thread.
When you PM the organizer for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim.  
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1
Please pay close attention to your partners hope list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.
Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.
Post your list (if you had specific requests, please include it in your list) The more things you have listed, the quicker the easier it is to keep the claiming moving quickly. :

Items Id like:

Themes Id like:

Store Bought Wishes

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.
If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 ongoing claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet received) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 claims out, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received.
If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims ongoing and 4 claims total between ongoing and in transit.  For example: 4 claims/2 in transit/2 received
If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim ongoing.
Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US claims and receipts are required for all international claims. If you can not provide a receipt and the item does not arrive you will need to resend the claim. Per Craftster rules, you do not need to provide DC if you are sending a papercraft, but if it goes missing, you are required to resend.

If you have questions, please PM BigBangMomma.

Here is a list craftylittlemonkey compiled for us of previous galleries of the One Tiny Thing Swap.
I am so frikken busy lately but I do love an OTT swap. In fact, I compiled a list of all of these (gallery posts showing images only) in the hope of hosting one of these days. I'll wait for you BBM, I can pull off making a small item but I think organizing anything ongoing would be completely beyond me these days!

I am actually going crazy. Or I have gremlins. Look at this photo. The round thing on the left is a weighing scales, I weigh all packages that I send out because everything from here is by weight.

See that little green envelope, I turned my craft room upsidedown this morning, while weighing and wrapping up the OTT packages-because it was supposed to be included in one of them. I gave up looking for it and put something else in the package. Btw the something else came from the little drawers behind the scales!

Now I've just come home, there has been no& one else in the house and it's sitting on(!) The scales in the middle of the bench.

Gremlins or worm holes

All on their way 😁

If its OK, Im going to post a wish list just to get my own wheels turning.  Maybe it will inspire ideas for others as well.  OTTs that I would love to receive:

A pincushion! Regular, wrist, or ring
Dish scrubbies
A pouch for my headphones
A pouch for pads & tampons
A tiny coin purse key ring. I always forget the quarter for the Aldis grocery carts.  I would love to keep a quarter attached to my keys.
Needle book
An ID holder.  They made us start wearing one at school and the lame-o one I have was free from a National Guard recruiter
A biology teacher themed key chain
An adult merit badge
A ring, bracelet, or necklace with vibrant colors
Anything funny.  Surprise me.  Just make me laugh.  Cheesy

Speaking of funny...I found this camel on Pinterest and hes kind of amazing .

I was prowling Pinterest for Christmas ornaments when I ran across this.  I thought it would be fun to make, then I thought, Not everyone wants an ornament that came from your chicken coop.  Cheesy

Yay I was hoping to get a chance to claim Powerhouseofthecell (about all I remember from bio - that and Xylem up Phloem down) but was worried she might not claim again - wow what a super claimer!

Thank you so much for claiming me!  And by the way, xylem and phloem are really pretty under the microscope. Maybe I need to find a way to turn them into a craft.  Cheesy
