Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make ONE piece of art, in your style,  in any medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it relatively flat, and 4 inches by 6 inches big.   You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address Time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  And then you will only know their Address and proper name.  The organizers will do their best to match up partners but do remember that this is essentially a "surprise" swap and no information other than a real name and address will be sent out to you.

Round Two Gallery
Round Three Gallery
Round Four Gallery

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: Jan 8-22
~ Check-in via private message (pm) to your group leader January 27-29(by 6:00pm EST)
~ Addresses will be distributed on January 30th
~ You must ship by Saturday, Feb 1

Swap Rules:
~ Please post in the thread before signing up so we know you are still crafting and thinking about this swap.  Updates and reminders will only be posted in the thread so keep an eye out for the Organizer note headline.

~ You are required to check in to your group leader via pm (private message) between the dates of January 27-29  ONLY.  Anyone who has not checked by 6:00PM on January 29 will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ DC# confirmation is required for all senders in the USA.  Add some packing to a bubble envelope to meet the 3/4" thick requirement when shipping.  If you are sending art on a piece of paper, please ship with a piece of heavy cardboard so your masterpiece arrives intact!

~ No extra's please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra. This includes sending more than one art piece. Only send ONE art piece to your partner.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer(s): BigBangMomma

Very tempting, I think I have room for one more swap. And hey, it's only 4x6 right? Let me sleep on it.

Must craft....must craft.....
Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I still see wonderful art every day from precious rounds.  I may have to join this one, but I have some things to finish up first!

We've got 6 participants so far, and kwality570 has agreed to co-organize with me if  necessary, so thank you so much for that! If you see your name posted in the Participants, and the swap isn't showing up on your profile, please let me know! Also, don't forget to post at least once in the thread as you sign up--craftster rule and it's important so you receive notifications and things! Have fun, and remember, you can already start crafting--or be like me and already have a 4x6 art work piece done in anticipation of the swap!

Dear Craftster "FAMmunity,"

I love you all.

See you where we all end up!
