Swap name:  One Tiny Thing Round 16
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: LuxieLou
Sign-up date range: 11/4 - 11/10 or until FULL
Date to send item by:  11/27/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

All ages allowed? Yes but if you are under 16 please be sure your parent/guardian's permission. Make sure you can maintain reasonable communication with the thread and can get to the post office.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants:  N/A

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
The idea is to make one tiny craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items should be 4"x4" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  An ATC (artist trading card) is tiny; a full-size drawing is not.  (If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!)


Swap name: OTT Round 16
Craftster Username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?:
What craft skills can you use to make a high quality tiny item (ie.. knit, crochet, sew, quilt, shrine making etc..) :
What craft skills would you love your tiny item to be made with:
What kind of tiny things would you like to receive? (this is just a guideline) :
What are you favorite colors / motifs / styles:
What else would you like to tell you partner?  (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, etc.)

A few rules:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT 16 in the title of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it! Be Sure to PM the organizer when you have sent you OTT and when you have received your OTT!!

3.   A DC# is not required since the packages are very small.  In all cases, save your receipt and be prepared to show me a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion.

4.   Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  Some people are forgetting this and so I'm mentioning it yet again - follow the rules!!

5.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you MUST inform me and your partner.

6.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

If you send on time and follow the guildelines of only one item, I will give you a "Great Swapper"
If you send late* (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
If you send late* but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination, I will give you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

You have 2 weeks to craft and maybe longer if this swap fills up fast so I'm going to consider you late if you don't send by November 27th and it will be noted in your feedback.  That may seem harsh to some but It's only ONE tiny item and 2 weeks should be long enough to get it done.

Oh dear, it's addicting, but one tiny thing is OK, right?  Too late now, sent in my info hehe.

One day I'll get used to the American "backwards" (to us in the UK anyway) way of writing the date.  To me 11/4 is 11th April Smiley

Quite a few ideas for this swap, looking forward to it.

Its only one tiny thing.  I can totally do one tiny thing.  Who needs to clean or organize or pack?  Not me, I need to make one tiny thing!
