Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make a piece of art, in your style,  in your medium, how you want.  The only parameters would be that you keep it 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. You will then have just under 1 week to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: October 20 - November 3, 2014
~ Crafting period: October 20 - November 10, 2014
~ Check in with organizer via PM Oct. 30 - Nov. 3 to assure that you are ready to    swap
~ Addresses will be distributed on Monday Nov. 3 or Tuesday Nov. 4
~ You must ship November  12 - 15, 2014

Swap Rules:  
~ Please communicate within the thread at least once per week.  Communication makes the swap process more fun, and no one is left wondering " Hey, where did so and so go?"  All I want is a quick "Hey I'm still here, still crafting!"
~ No extras 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!

Oh, I definitely want in on this!  Is it okay if I get back to you on materials, or would you rather I wait to sign up?  (You have sign ups til Nov 10 at the top and Nov 3 in the timeline, by the way.)

I fixed the dates - thanks for noticing.

And I suppose I'll match folks by preference. So for example, if you're crocheting something, and someone is allergic to wool, I won't match you. But if you make collages with paper and cat hair, and someone loves that, I would match you two. So just list what you think you'll use...hope that helps.

Now... you said they have to be flat... is there a depth maximum? Could we create them on a piece of plywood for example? Can there be pieces of found objects attached to it that extend out more than 1", etc... you know, that kind of stuff. Grin I intend to include a hanging element on the back to facilitate it getting comfortable in its new home.

......But if you make collages with paper and cat hair, ........

Uhhh, everything I make has an element of cat hair, it's the binding factor. Amazing stuff that cat hair!

I'll keep an eye on this too. A bit overwhelmed right now, but this speaks to my soul...just do my art! I'll check in after a short vacation.

It's up to you - the shipping may be more with a sticky-outy project....

(That's a professional term - sticky-outy, as we say around the preschool....)
