(Jewelry, key chains, cell phone charm, headbands, finger/sock puppets, felt food, scented soap/lotion/nail polish, Stationary/Note card writing set---whatever Wink ) As long as it is to your partner's tastes and preferences.

THIS IS AN "ANY ART GOES" SWAP!! You can use any medium you like to craft for this swap. Painting/drawing, amigurumi/stuffies, quilts, embroidery, mixed media, ATC collage, jewelry design, Scrap booking, knit/crochet etc.

This swap has several options that a participant can choose for themes. One or all may be used in deciding what characters you would like to be crafted.
      1) Create a brand new character of your own design or offer up an already existing character from a book/manga/children's story you have written/are writing. If you choose this option, please provide a thorough description of this character for your partner and a small paragraph or two about his/her/it's background. Remember, the details COUNT! But please don't post information this on the questionnaire. Send it via PM to your partner that way if he/she chooses to craft this option, everything will be readily available for him/her.

      2) List a bunch of your favorite characters that you would love to see crafted for you. They can be from any genre, any media. But please provide links for any obscure or not-well-known characters for your partner to research from.

      3) In addition to option #2, you may also opt for a challenge and have any favorite character "altered" to your liking. EXAMPLE: A werewolf Tenth Doctor (from Doctor Who), a female Wolverine (X-men), a steampunk Elizabeth Bennett (Pride and Prejudice), a dark angel Ichigo (Bleach), etc.

Extras may be sent between partners but BOTH MUST AGREE TO THIS!! No one wants to feel like a schmuck getting a boatload of extras but didn't send any Roll Eyes

- You must post in this thread at least once a week.

Oh gosh, I want to do this swap, but with the sign ups at the same time as the two swaps I said I would run next month... I'm just not sure if I will have the time. Plus I really only want to join this for crafted goodies of my Original Characters from my stories... Ah I am going to have to think hard about this >,<

*Sigh* I'm weak. I did it. I joined Tongue lol. I'm only going to start the MLP swap net month so I figured I could move the dragon swap form Mid Jan to Mid Feb.
So I just sat here making lists of characters (that were WAY to long) and writing there names in piece of paper and drawing some to make my list and keep it short XD I already cant wait for this to start!
