Details of swap:
Enjoy movies? Than this is the swap for you! We'll be crafting three tiny movie things for our partners, based on a list they will supply of their 5 favorite/most artistically inspiring films! Easy as pie.

It is required that you watch the 5 films so that you have a thorough understanding of the plot and will be able to craft something for your partner that is truly reminiscent of their favorite flicks.

There's a fairly long crafting time - over a month! I figure people might need that time to find the movies, or, if you're like me and rely on the library to get your movies for free, sometimes there are holds.  If it is impossible for you to rent/borrow the movies on your partner's list, you can request substitute titles (though, if you're like me, it's unlikely the list is actually only 5 movies long, because you couldn't narrow it down).

A tiny thing is anything that fits into the dimension 4" by 4" by 4". It is a small space to work with, but please let your mind wander and feel free to go as crazy as you like!

I love this swap! I believe I must join it.

Yes, yes you must join! Cheesy

And for everyone filing out their questionnaire, and having trouble picking just five movies, I do know that in the past some people have listed a few alternates... maybe more than a few... Wink

I probably won't be able to make this Tongue I have packages that go out to Australia, Canada and the Netherlands that won't get to the receivers until well after the sigh-ups are over  Sad But I'll stalk!! And if people would be so inclined as to list some movie titles they have on their Q's, I might even "fake swap" with some new movie stuff  Wink

 What I WOULD have put if I could sign-up:

   Stranger than Fiction
   The Core
   Freedom Writers
   Julie and Julia
   Treasure Planet

  Kinda main stream but that's what I like! ^^ <3

I had to make myself leave the list at 5 because it could have easily become 20!

I know, because there are so many movies that are good for so many reasons...  I like a wide variety, too, from horror to sci-fi to romantic comedies, so it's hard to pick just 5... or even 10...  Cheesy

We have an official 3rd swapper!  Slow sign-ups this round.  Sad  C'mon people, you know you want to!  It's just three teeny tiny crafts, and a lot of time, what could be easier than that?  Cheesy

This swap tempts me every time. I get nervous about my potential partner's movie choices. (Example: I am really, really not into horror movies or ones with lots of cursing or intense violence.) What would I do if my partner's list was made up of movies I wouldn't want to watch?

I guess that's my one hangup. This swap really does look like fun.

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.
