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 are that you keep it flat(ish), and 4 inches by 6 inches in size. You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  You also have to "check in" with me, the organizer in the week after the sign ups close - this lets me know that you are ready to send. If you do not check in, you will be removed from the swap. 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: February 8 - February 16, 2015
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW Feb. 8 - 21, 2015
~ Check in with organizer via PM Feb. 17 - Feb. 21, 2014 to assure me that you are ready to swap
~ Addresses will be distributed on  February 22, 2015
~ You must ship February 23 - 27, 2015

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!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: Smmarrt (co-org TBD)

Filling out my questionnaire now. Question-- are tracking #'s required, or is it OK not to as long as we promise to re-send if need be? Also, the header says swap out March 2, but the directions say the send-out is Feb, 22-27...?

I'll fix the dates - I was trying to remember them all without running across the room to look at the calendar.

And if your art is mainly paper, then no tracking is required. But I certainly recommend it, if you can afford to add it on, to keep track of it. And if your piece is fabric, mixed media or felt/knit/crochet or other, then I highly recommend using it. When shipping somewhere other than the USA, it is not available. Except to Canada, I think. I'll add that to the questionnaire for the rest of the swappers...

But for now, we're all USA peeps.
