   I want this to be a fun, relaxed art swap so everyone will have a month and a half to craft. I know it's holiday season soon and I don't want anyone to be stressed about completing a project and entertaining family too ^^ (unless you can do both). Don't be afraid to sign up because you think you're "not a good artist". There's NO SUCH THING! Art has no rules and Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder! Besides, the only way to get better at anything is to PRACTICE. With this swap you not only get to do that but also make somebody's day by giving a one-of-a-kind original art piece. So please have fun and stretch your artistic muscles but make sure to spend a goodly amount of time making the art the best it can be. After all, this will be hanging in somebody's home.

  ~ This swap is an ANY MEDIA art swap. Anything goes! Embroidery, graphic arts, wood burning, pastels, charcoal, paint, decoupage, crochet, knit, quilted, glass etching, metal etc. ANYTHING goes as long as it can hang on a Wall Cool

~The only requirement is that the size be 11x14 or smaller. Or, if it’s decided between partners, you may do a series of smaller pieces of art but please make sure it’s agreed that the swap is equal on both sides. In other words, one participant might send an 8x10 and might receive 5 ATC’s. This is NOT equal. Please use your best judgment Grin

~Each member will be sending to TWO PARTNERS (double the fun Wink ). If you have a member that you already have in mind to swap with, please let me know and I will pair you accordingly. I must receive BOTH questionnaires first before you’re paired. After that, you may begin to craft early, if that's what you wish to do ^^

~Extras are NOT required but certainly encouraged. It should be discussed between partners first though. (I don’t know about anyone else but I always feel like a schmuck when I receive a boatload of snacks and/or extras and didn’t send any Tongue )

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO POP INTO THE THREAD EVERY WEEK AND LET ME KNOW EVERYTHING IS COOL, EVEN IF IT'S JUST A QUICK WORD OR TWO! Smiley Or, if it's not, you can tell me that too. (Or gozer if you feel more comfortable with that.)

Can't wait to start working on this. I have been itching to do more larger (than an ATC) art.

Ooh, very tempting! Love the long crafting time. If there are still spots open tomorrow (you're not going to fill up that quick, right? Smiley), I'll start working on my questionnaire.

Hooray, I'm in! My resolve to only be in one or two Christmas-themed swaps from now until the end of the year dissolved very quickly!  Roll Eyes

 If there's more than 20 people than want to sign up I'll push the number of participants up to 40 Wink I DO have a co-org after all  Cheesy There's room for everyone. (But secretly I believe that if people see there's only 20 spots available in a swap they'll hurry and sign up before it's all filled. See? GENIUS  Cool Cheesy )

ARGGG, I SOOO want to join, I said so in the discussion swap, but I just recently decided to craft ALL my Christmas presents this year, and I'm not sure I trust myself at all to handle the time span well if I did both this and that.... Cry
