- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

Swap Details
The idea is to make one tiny craft item with a science and/or geek theme. It should be physically small 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 so that it best represents your skill. (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could 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.
• All items must be 4"x4" or smaller.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?" Examples: A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not. A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny. A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not. If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key. Please keep in touch with your partner. Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: (Remember to send your info to your organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)

Name of swap: Science/Geek OTT
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country (as would need to appear for mailing)
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What are you favorite crafts to make?
What kind of crafts would you like to receive?
Do you have any allergies?
Do you/people in your household smoke?
Do you have pets?

Describe your favorite science and/or geek things.  Some things you might include are specific science/geek subjects, books, TV shows, movies, organizations, quotes, etc.

Is there anything else you would like you’re partner to know?


Please label Personal Messages (PMs) to organizer with title of "Science/Geek OTT swap". When you send, label message as "SENT: Science/Geek OTT Swap". (don't forget to include your DC#). Send this message to the organizer and your partner. When you receive, label message as "RECEIVED: Science/Geek OTT swap". Send this message to the organizer and your partner.

Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
• SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send. When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives. PM organizer and partner when you send.
• RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.) Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
• FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not) *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.* NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.
Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Thanks to all previous OTT Organizers!

Oh, I so love geekery!  I'll have to go shop thinkgeek and see if anything sparks my imagination.  I can't think of what tiny thing I could make.

I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat

Go for it!  This is a perfect, low-stress swap for first timers.  We'd be happy to have you.

I bet you can make tiny crafts, you probably don't think of them as tiny.  In my last two OTT's, I made a pin cushion ring and a camera case.  I received a bracelet rosary and a crocheted egg scrubby.  Lots of things can be made tiny!
