What is a whimsical shirne?  I'm glad you asked!  The Craftster Blog recently did a feature on it, and if you haven't seen it, one, you should totally be following the Craftster Blog because it is awesome, and two, it's right here!

In this swap, we will be making a shrine based on our partner's tastes, at least the size of a regular-sized tin but it can be larger or oddly shaped - no need to stick with rectangles or squares, though there's nothing wrong with either of those options!

No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, please dont sign up.

If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let us know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post up on the thread at least once a week to let us know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let us know.

Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. A mailing receipt need to be kept if sending elsewhere.

PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures of everything you send just in case.

Dumb question: what is a regular size tin?

Dumb question: what is a regular size tin?   

Not at all a dumb question, I was going by the typical "altered tins" that people make (usually using Altoids tins) that are... lemme measure... let's say roughly 2-1/2" by 3-1/4".
