Hi all,
Some of the other members and I have been talking about having a regular Dotee doll swap once a month! with each month having a different theme.
So far 3 of us are interested, just wondering if anyone else would be.
The plan is that each time you would have about 12 days to make your small Dotee and you would only sign up to the monthly swap that you are interested in. That way if you don't like one months theme or are sick, or holidaying, there is no obligation to sign up for that month.
Theme ideas I have come up with so far are
1. Eat your greens - Fruit and vegetable dotee's
2. Night sky - stars or moon
3. A pigeon pair - a pair of dotee's, man and wife, cat and dog, peas and carrots, Romeo and Juliet, mouse and cheese etc etc
4. Steampunk
5. Partners choice
6. Alice in wonderland

I would love to hear other ideas for themes......
How does the list sound so far?

I like those themes!  You could do certain colors, like purple...any kind, just has to be mostly purple?

unusual shapes?  I tend to get stuck in tear shape dotees...so maybe make it geometric shape like a triangle, square, etc.

We could do a dotee representing something from where you live...like a cowgirl dotee, a Hershey kiss dotee, etc.

Flowers...dotees are perfect for flowers.

An occupation dotee? It would be fun to get a teacher dotee, or a k-mart dotee, or...you see what I mean?  There are too many ideas! Grin

Alwaysinmyroom, they are some great ideas you have will be definetely adding some of those themes to the list. I esp like the occupation theme and the something from where you live theme. Very inventive!
In January I will reveal the entire list.......
I may also need an extra host, to host some months. Hosting the entire 12 months of dotee's could be quite exhausting.

I couldn't do them all but I will probably try to pop in on the months that appeal to me.

How about fandom dotees, from favorite movies, tv shows, etc. Whatever your partner likes, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Dr. Seuss, Alice in Wonderland, favorite musicians, etc...

Flora/Fauna dotees, Hobby dotees. I like the color dotee idea (perhaps the month could be about colors and people would craft in their partner's favorite colors)...
