Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No limit

If so, which country?: N/A

Age requirement?: None, but please let me know if you are under 18

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: 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
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: YES
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
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. (For example, a needlebook can have beading or embroidery on it to really jazz it up.)

Like OTT 19 and 20, this round of OTT is going to be a themed one. That means: you will list 5 themes from which your partner can choose as the focal point of the crafted item. In other words, if you choose the color blue as a theme in your list, your partner would make something based on that theme, ie: blue stitch markers. Your themes can be anything; you just need 5.

After you have been approved, you are welcome to post your 5 themes in the thread. That being said, if you spy (with your little eye) that you rather fancy someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM PerlaBella/me and let me know that you would like to be partnered up with that participant. I cannot guarantee that you will indeed get that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Other Details of the swap:
1. You will have one partner.
2. This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft, and NOTHING else. If you do send Extras, that will be noted in your feedback. The whole point of this swap is to be low-stress and simple so it's not fair if some abide by this rule but others don't.
3. You can only send your partner ONE tiny thing. (See below for examples of a tiny thing.) All items must be within 4"x4" dimensions or smaller.

Is your item tiny?:
Pair of earrings - tiny; necklace, earrings and bracelet set - NOT tiny
ATC - tiny; full-size drawing - NOT tiny
Change purse - tiny; clutch purse - NOT tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions; if the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay. If you aren't sure if your idea can be considered "tiny", please ask!

Rules of the swap:
- Please use the following subject when sending PMs: OTT 21 - with one of the following:

- You must: a. post in the thread (original or gallery) at least once a week OR b. PM me and your partner once a week

- One week before the Mar. 31st send-out date, you will receive a PM to check that everything is okay. If you think you may be sending late, you MUST PM me and your partner.

- This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft, and NOTHING else. If you do send Extras, that will be noted in your feedback.

- You MUST post a picture of your received item in the gallery...because we're all curious little ones Smiley If you don't have access to a camera, please make arrangements with your partner.

Questionnaire for this swap:
If you want to participate, please complete and send this questionnaire to the organizer (PerlaBella) in a PM:

What kind of tiny things would you like to receive? (guideline question):
Anything else you would like your partner to know?:

Additional Swap Conditions (please choose YES or NO):
Note: These are the rules to the swap; if you don't follow these rules (ie: send late without communication, no DC# or receipt or if you send extras), it may be reflected in your feedback.

Ooo, I want to join. But I'm in a swap thats due in two weeks and I've got very little done for.  Embarrassed I'm a horrible procrastinator. But, if I can get it mostly crafted by Friday I'll sign up. I absolutely loved what I got in the last OTT swap.

Most probably will join this one.  I like it because it is a no extras swap, so it is truly a "one tiny thing".  I have to see what progress I make on my Dotees.  I have 4 of them to make and haven't even started (not to mention crafting for a couple of other swaps I'm in). 

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

I've been watching for another tiny thing swap for ages. The sign ups always seem to happen when I've got loads going on, but this time I'm not really working on anything! hooray!

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

hmmm.... the last round was soooo much fun.  I think I will be signing up for this one.  I need to figure out some really good themes and look up what my original themes where in the last round!

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...
