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: June 13 June 20, 2015
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW June 13 June 28, 2015
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of June 21-27.  Anyone who has not checked in by midnight (EST) on June 27 will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed on  June 28, 2015
~ You must ship June 29 July 2, 2015

Swap Rules:  
~ Please communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ 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!

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: 4 x 6 Art Swap June 2015
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval (YES/NO)

Do you want one partner or two?
**You may have to send one piece internationally if you choose 2 partners.
Do you have allergies/sensitivities?
Do you have allergens in your home (dog, cat, smoke, etc)

Do you have a digital camera?
Can you post photos?

**If your art is mainly paper, then no tracking is required. If you are sending an art piece that is fabric, mixed media, felt/knit/crochet or other, then it is the Craftster rules that you use tracking in the USA.
Will you add tracking to your package if necessary?

I am halfway done with my first one, despite the fact that I decided to reorganize my entire apartment, go grocery shopping, and sort through projects that I haven't touched in four years.   Grin

I know I have time but I don't have anymore of the items I used and I have a rule that if I make something for a swap or someone else I don't get to keep it no matter how much I love how it turned out. I'd never get half of my items sent if I didn't have the rule lol
